UPDATE: BlinkyBird has inexplicably been updated to work with Glass XE22 (11/17/2014)!
I’ve been intending to write some kind of Google Glass app for the last several months – but was having trouble getting inspired.
Then it hit me – how about a Flappy Bird clone that uses Glass’s eye sensor for blink-to-flap awesomeness? Done.
BlinkyBird uses Glass’s eye sensor – just double-blink to flap!
- Double-blink to flap (single-blink detection isn’t enabled in the current version of Glass).
- Be sure to calibrate the eye sensor in Google Glass settings. Try repositioning Glass on your face if calibration doesn’t work.
- Don’t double-blink too fast – with practice – near 100% blink detection is possible.
- If you’re having trouble with “blink” mode – try “tap” mode. It works pretty much like classic Flappy Bird.
For now BlinkyBird is free.
