“This is a first peek at an augmented reality virtual pet game being developed for the iPhone in the GVU Center’s Augmented Environments Lab at Georgia Tech.”
As a game, this is already pretty awesome. What I think would make it more valuable for me (and others users) is the possibility of bringing our dearly departed pets back to life via this game. If there could be some way of creating the virtual pet based on my own pet’s image, it will be a hit. I’d love it if I could have my cats again (Winoli, Boinky, Big Face, and a lot more) and ‘care’ for them even if only in the virtual world.
