SINGAPORE--Media Exploits 2012, organized by Exploit Technologies, the technology transfer agency of Singapore's Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*Star), features homegrown technologies and commercial offerings in areas including mobile advertising, games and video streaming.
ZDNet Asia visited the exhibition Thursday, and highlights some of the latest innovations on offer.
VDancer Revolution is a 3-D dance game built for mobile devices. Players get to choose their avatars and control their dance moves by tapping on the screen.
According to Lau Kin Wai, managing partner of game developer Fatfish, music and dance games such as Guitar Hero are "big" among mobile users. But there has not been much innovation in this space for some time, so Fatfish hopes to seize this opportunity.
The game is set to market by the first quarter of 2013.
As part of its game development, Fatfish captured the moves of a real dancer before splicing and resequencing them according to song beats. These moves are then incorporate into the avatars, Lau explained.
Moving forward, Lau hopes to follow in the footsteps of popular games such as Draw Something and Scramble With Friends by enabling users to play and interact with each other online.
