Augmented reality game: «Year of the Water Dragon!»: how to play
Earn as many points as possible! Manipulate your own 3D Dragon in the real time using the augmented reality marker placed in front of your laptop’s webcam.
- Turn and tilt the marker smoothly in front of the webcam in order to control the flight of the beast.
- There are two ways of shooting fire balls in hanging paper lanterns to earn points. First, you can smoothly move the marker to and from the cam. Or you can hide the marker with your finger for one second.
- If you don’t earn points, your dragon will gradually run out of «energy» indicated on the health bar in the top right corner.
- Use the radar in the lower left corner. It shows the position of your dragon and the items you must shoot.
