Wouldn't it be nice if you could use your phone's camera for gaming, rather than just snapping pics of your mates' arses when they're drunk?
Thankfully, a new generation of camera phone games is on the way, including the marvellous-looking 3D Tilt-A-World, which has just been released in the US by publisher Super Happy Fun Fun.
The game uses your phone's camera to control the game's action, which involves rolling a ball through a series of 3D mazes, collecting gems and avoiding dropping off the edge of the board. You move by tilting your phone – the camera's view is turned into movements.
3D Tilt-A-World uses technology called Video Gesture Control from a company called GestureTek, which has also been used in Sony's EyeToy cam for PlayStation 2, and Microsoft's Live Vision cam for Xbox 360.
Sadly for us Europeans, at the moment it only works in BREW phones, rather than the Java ones we have here. Still, we're hoping that this'll change in the next few months, so 3D Tilt-A-World can come out in this part of the world too.
Oh, also, we've found a neat video on YouTube that shows the game in action. Click below to watch it (while dancing like a happy robot to the bleepy retro soundtrack).
