Like many other games that I play on my smartphone Stick Cricket is one of those that block the smartphone’s screen in order to be played, since you have to put your finger onscreen. This is an inevitable feature of touchscreen smartphones that make them unfriendly gaming devices.
To overcome this problem a team at Keio University is developing an elastic device that would utilize your smartphone’s rear camera’s abilities, and of itself also, to function like a 3-axis analog joystick during gaming. This unnamed elastic device uses the markers to be automatically detected by smartphone’s camera. These markers function in variety of ways to enable you for multiple types of inputs.
But the ability of this elastic device to function efficiently depends upon the hardware compatibility of smartphone it being used with.
Elastic device can also be used for maps’ browsing without having to block the screen with your fingers. There’s no news about this little gadget’s coming, I hope it outs soon for the good of gamers.
I think this is the best time you replace your rear-camera-only smartphones.
