After Apple unveiled its ARKit for developers earlier this month, Augmented reality is now on its way towards becoming popular, may be sooner than expected, thanks to a 28 years old programmer.
Abhishek Singh managed to recreate the whole first level from Nintendo’s “Super Mario Bros” for Microsoft’s HoloLens device, a pair of augmented-reality goggles, using Unity3D. The coder, a graduate from NYU’s Tisch school, took his creation to Central Park in New York City to demonstrate how it works.
Singh recorded himself walking down a pathway in the park, jumping on any Goombas and Koopa Troopas that crossed his path. The life-sized game even features the Fire Flower, which allowed Singh to launch fireballs by gesturing with his hands where he wanted them to go.
According to the developer, there was no post-production work done on his recording.
