Last year, I played Super Mario in AR on a Hololens. The maker of that game, Abhishek Singh, told me he would be focusing on mobile games and ARKit in the future. Now he has another AR gaming idea he’s brewed up: Street Fighter II in AR, using ARKit on an iPhone, so you can literally fight in the street. And it looks… awesome.
Apple’s growing selection of ARKit games has lots of options. There’s no actual Street Fighter game, though, and not that many arcade fighting games at all.
His YouTube video shows him playing the game in city streets, on tables and in parking lots. And yes, there’s even a car-demolishing bonus round. You can’t download it, and it isn’t an official app — but maybe it should be.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
