Here comes the first augmented reality game – AR application for DJI drones, developed by Edgybees with the SDK provided by the famous manufacturer of Drones. Drone Prix AR game is compatible with DJI Phantom 3, the Phantom 4 and the Mavic Pro.
The Drone Prix AR app is designed for use both indoors and outdoors, all levels come with a drone guide, it allows novices to learn facing challenges of increasing difficulty, and experts to face real competition against others from all over the world.
How does it work? They offered different race modes, where the actual images will mix with virtual ones, so we can see the creation of real circuits, navigate through obstacles, collect coins and much more. The game is centered on flying the drone through a virtual obstacle course while collecting prizes and avoiding obstacles along the way. Drone pilots can compete over the best performance, points and time for a coveted place in the high-score leaderboard with other drone pilots around the world.
Drone Prix AR Features
- Solo and Competition Modes: Race against the clock to beat your previous score or compete with other users around the world to make it onto the leaderboard.
- Flight Assistant: Track guiding will assist the pilot in the 3D space while they navigate around obstacles to collect coins and prizes.
- Multiple Courses: Featuring over 30 different obstacle courses, with varying difficulties suitable for novice to experienced pilots.
- Social Engagement: Pilots can link their user ID to their Facebook account and share their achievements with top performing pilots appearing on the leaderboard.
Commenting on the launch, Menashe Haskin, Edgybees CTO & Co-Founder said: “When we first came up with the idea for this app, we wanted to create a new experience for pilots combining the joys of flying with the thrills of gamification. The Drone Prix AR app is really the first augmented reality game designed specifically to do just that. In contrast with flight simulators, Drone Prix AR provides a much more immersive experience that combines virtual obstacles with real-life piloting skills. DJI’s Mobile SDK allowed us to bring our idea to life very quickly and we are really excited to see how this app will change the way people experience flying a drone.”
