We designed and developed an all-new immersive, multi
–player experience, built with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SpacesTM XR Developer Platform, compatible with Motorola Edge+ devices and Lenovo’s ThinkReality A3 smart glasses.
The design of the game was important. It needed to look and feel as realistic as possible. We used a drone to take thousands of photos of Petco Park, using photogrammetry to stitch the photos together. We then created a 3D model replica to animate. Considering the size of the physical environment, we opted to create a virtual portal overlaid onto a physical wall space, giving game users a complete view of Petco Park as if they were standing on the home plate and plenty of room to avoid bumping into each other.
We made the experience effortless for the user and accessible for all. We ensured the game was simple and the technology was easy to use. Not everyone will want to wear head-worn devices, so we built a backend that allowed two players to play with the Lenovo A3 and two players to use the handheld Motorola edge+. Using the Snapdragon Spaces XR Developer Platform, we could use image tracking to activate and localise each user within the experience and positional tracking to allow them the freedom to move around the experience.
