Teaser: introducing Fantasy Dice

Our first sensor fusion app, 3D Gyro Compass, has been quite successful: its installed base grows about 10% each day, and it has collected 500+ downloads within two weeks with very little marketing. Not bad at all.

In fact we've been so pleased that we have decided to release another treat from our sensor fusion lab: it's a simple dice rolling app and called Fantasy Dice. As usual, it's got 3D graphics created with Rightware's Kanzi framework and AHRS sensor fusion for movement tracking. However, this time we added Bullet physics engine to create realistic physics simulation! Together these three make a great combo, you'll definitely want to check it out. 

We hope to release it already this week, so stay tuned. Meanwhile, here's a small teaser for you guys...

Update: Well, that week went and there was no release... In fact we had everything ready to go, but then received messages from our beta testers of slow performance in some devices that we don't have at the lab. So we decided to postpone the release, and fix the issues first.

That was a good decision, we now have 60 FPS on many devices, and even slightly older hardware can render a few dice at 30-40 FPS. There are also other improvements, including algorithm bug fixes. The overall user experience is now significantly better.

So we are once again preparing for a release, but this time there will be no schedule given (trying to learn from past mistakes). It will be released when it is... well, ready.
