Motorola has released a YouTube video showing off an augmented reality game created by Motorola and Jan Pinkava, who has done quite a bit of directing work and created a short film titled “Windy Day” for a Qualcomm conference not too long ago. The short was basically a demo for new Pixar technology called OpenSubdiv, a real-time animation process. Motorola was interestingly listed as a client for the Windy Day project.
The video description seems to hint that the Moto X will be the only device Windy Day will be available to. It’s a pretty short minute video with a glimpse at what looks like an augmented reality game at the very end, captioned “Windy Day only on Moto X.” Cool marketing tactic, or weird gimmick thing?
