They offer marker based AR SDK which is free, and works on IOS and Android platforms and also in Unity 3D.

Their cloud based AR service could be used to add and detect dynamically assigned markers.

We will maintain our AR edge by keeping in constant touch with Qualcomm and their SDKs.

Though these kits look complex at first, they are easy to follow with an interactive iPad-App to talk you through step by step in stages. These instructions have 3d rotatable images to make it even easier.

They say these ranges are for 9+ age group. Lego also will eventually come out with an SDKs for app developers to build custom apps around these robotic kits.

Currently they offer open source software to control these via Mac and Windows desktops.

Apart from the desktop and IPad based remote controlling possibility, there is also a standalone tiny remote controller as well, that comes with it.

Nano Technology at CES 2013

January12

There were two companies that showcased how nano technology could be used to safeguard smartphones from water! One of the company called DryWired (see video) demonstrated by dropping nano coated phone into water. The other company called LiquiPel too demonstrated the same, along with dropping a paper napkin into water that was coated and took it out dry.

Not sure whether the phone manufacturers adopt this technology as a part of their manufacturing process, or this too will stay as a paid add-on industry like the screen guards!

Fun Games for Kids in Singapore – An App Developer View

January7

Why Should Games for Kids be Fun-filled?

How to Create Fun Game Apps for Kids in Singapore

You may think it interesting to add a fun game app to your language learning website, or you may want to create fun game apps for your kids website. You may not even have a website and still might want to create a fun game app to sell in the Android or Apple AppStore. There are a number of reasons why creating fun games and apps for kids in Singapore is a good idea. Primarily, because these type of games meet kids learning and activity needs, but also because the app industry is increasing dramatically in the Asian and world market. In fact, studies suggest that over 70% of top selling apps are targeted towards elementary and preschool aged children.

Who Can Be a Developer?

An apps developer Singapore can be anyone, whether he is experienced in programming and design or not. Actually, many developers are not professional programmers and don’t do any of the programming in the app. They only set up the concept, explain the idea and then place the finalized app in the AppStore or on their website.

How Can Anyone be an App Developer?

Many app developers who are not programmers partner with a reliable app maker Singapore to explain their concept and work closely with, until a finalized app is developed. The benefit in designing an app game in this way is that you use your experience to create the game and the app designer uses his knowledge in programming to give you the functionality you want.

What Happens Next?

When visiting the android developers Singapore, make sure you get a non-disclosure agreement. Most reliable iPad developer Singapore are very willing to sign this. Remember the business of an app maker is to develop apps. They are not interested in selling the app or getting it to market. They actually have enough on their plate to worry about a single app. So signing a non-disclosure agreement to protect your concept is often normal for professionals who develop apps Singapore.

The Finished Game App

Once your kid games are finished by the mobile apps developers Singapore you can load these to your website to create more interaction with your customers, or add them to the app store for resale or for your customers’ use. This aspect of your new fun game app really depends on your business purpose in having a software development android Singapore company develop the game. Many programming android Singapore companies also offer the service of uploading the app to vendor websites, the Apple AppStore or the Android store for you, getting your ID number in the process. This will then allow you to either give your games away or sell them to AppStore visitors.

Bottom Line

There are many reasons you would want to create fun app games, even if you aren’t an android application development company. You can create interaction with your blog readership, offer educational game play for children, offer great children’s games to the AppStore, add interest to a children’s book you wrote and so much more. You don’t have to be phone app developers Singapore for a living. All you need is a great idea, one that offers you the functionality you need.
