Submission + - Google Glass and the future of wearable gaming (redbull.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Google Glass is now becoming more widely available, but developers are only just starting to tap into the augmented reality specs' potential for gaming. A new report looks at some of the early experiments with the tech — leading the charge is indie developer Mind Pirate, the first studio to release a mobile game simultaneously on iPhone and Google Glass — will others get on board though? Will the explosion in popularity of virtual reality headsets help or hinder it? It's still a wild wild west.

The potential of wearables will only be realised through thoughtful integration of hardware and software” says Mind Pirate CEO Shawn Hardin. Right now, “much of the mature infrastructure of the mobile arena” is missing in the world of wearables. The “myriad of unique sensor and hardware configurations atop increasingly diverse operating systems” makes it particularly difficult for developers to get started."
