So far, it’s only a tech demo, guys, but it sure looks promising. The guys over at EHCI Research Group have found a rather clever way to track the movement of the user’s head with the front facing camera and, along with some software magic, have managed to create an impressive real-time 3D experience on Apple’s own iPad.
The creators of the software call it Head-Coupled Perspective on Mobile Devices. It is important to note that the app does not use the accelerometer of the iPad to track your movement, but the front-facing camera. And because most new mobile devices ship with one, we cross our fingers that an official app will be released some time soon. Check out the full video below and tell us what you think about it.
