Windy Day 3Today, Motorola unveiled the first of many stories coming into the Motorola Spotlight Player app.  If you aren’t aware, the Motorola Spotlight Player is a new storytelling canvas for the Moto X, that plans on bringing content to your device and displaying it in new, innovative ways. Meet Windy Day, the first story designed for smartphones and only available on the Moto X.

Thanks to the highly tuned hardware and software of the Moto X, the first story, Windy Day, highlights the power behind the Moto X’s Adreno 320 GPU. Windy Day is able to push out real-time 3D graphics, use rendering technology from Pixar, and take advantage of all of the sensors inside Motorola’s new flagship Android phone.

To get started, Moto X owners will first need to update to the latest version of the Motorola Spotlight Player. Then, once the stars align and the content arrives on your device, just tap the red hat bouncing around your screen to begin. It will appear randomly, out of no where.  To play along, hold your phone up in the air and try to keep the red hat visible while immersing yourself into your new world.

Since Windy Day is an augmented reality game (if we can even call it a game?), simply recording the screen under conventional methods just wouldn’t cut it. The best way to show you exactly how it feels to use Windy Day, would be for you to experience it in the first person. Thankfully, Google has tool for that. Here’s Windy Day through Google Glass.
