Mashable SXSW Geek Games – Sphero Geek Ball iPad

SXSW interactive is wrapping up today in Austin.  I had the chance to design a Sphero Geek Ball bowling app as part of Mashable’s Geek Games. The 64 teams of two to five players will participate in a single-elimination tournament of head-to-head matches in Twister, shuffleboard, trivia, Geek Ball bowling and more. 

The app I worked on was a ball flick controller on the iPad that was used to send the Sphero down the table toward Pepsi Max bottle pins.  The ball supported an arch and flick speed to make an awesome tabletop game!
