Guy Creates Smaller Version of Real Life Android-Powered Labyrinth in Under a Day [Video]


Google came to I/O this year with a life-sized Labyrinth game controlled with nothing but a Motorola XOOM. We were pretty awed by it and excited to see what else would be done with the Android Open Accessory ADK. The first, outside of the official demos we saw at Google I/O, seems to be a clone of that Labyrinth game, except it’s a million times smaller and uses a phone (Nexus One) instead of a tablet.

The engineer said he started the project – hardware, software and all – at 7pm and was finished at 5am. That’s exactly the type of turn-around developers like to hear when it comes to creating prototypes ahead of a deadline. We’re not sure how long it’d take to develop a more robust and advanced system, but hobbyist and beginners should rest easy knowing that it’s easy to get started with. (The engineer stated that his only prior experience with Android was a “Hello World” application using the demokit and accelerometer samples from the web.) Check the video out above.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Very nice, so the game was invented for on the board, gets a phone version and now has a board-phone combo version?

    Now use a tablet as the board and the phone as a controller. Combine that with 3d Augmented reality (seeing 3d stuff on your mobile screen that isnt there on the tablet) and we can start a whole new revolution of family board/tablet games!!!

    the possibilities are endless!!!

      1. Ohhh….I should revisit Dragonball, it brings me back to the good ol’ days..
