On July 13, the world’s eyes will turn to Brazil for the final match of the 20th FIFA World Cup, the planet’s biggest football tournament. Inspired by the passion of fans from all over the world, Flare3D Team, being also big football fans, created this example “we had such a great time developing it that we decided to share it with you”. The game shows how to implement the basis for any other penalties game. You can download the full source code and assets here.
The Game is simple, drag the ball to define power and direction. The shooting height is defined depending on the position you pick up the ball (picking the ball in the bottom you get a height shot). The game use physics and is really simple.
This example works with a custom Dev Build library (included with the example), this library was compiled only for development and testing purposes. If you want the latest and stable version of Flare3D you can get it from our website.
Take this example as inspiration, we will be happy if you take the challenge to build your own football game, adding moves, headers,dribbling, etc…
We’d like to create a gallery of football related themes, games and then showcase your creations with us and be part of the Flare3D footballmania. Team up with Flare3D
AiM Services, a Swiss Technology Services Company incorporates 3D technology using Flare3D to boost their relationship with Swiss Watchmakers. AiM developed a touchpad based production order application that incorporates a viewer offering 3D interactions with watch mechanism and parts. This project involving 3D was made for the Watchmaking School of Geneva. The school wanted an e-learning innovative manual for professional training. The result was a comprehensive interactive e-book that combined PDF documents, pictures, videos and 3D models.
Additionally, a second solution developed is the Holographic Interactive Pyramid. Introduced in 2013 at a Tell-Day event is now in full time display at the Watchmaking School of Geneva. The pyramid allows three-dimensional, realistic and animated visualization of a watch model through the 4 sides of the pyramid. Completed with a leap motion box, the pyramid becomes interactive allowing users to play with the model in order to observe every detail of the carefully designed mechanism.
AiM can now help customers with comprehensive watch digital information from A to Z meeting the needs of production, after sales service, marketing, technical communication, training and quality contol.
We asked Eric Pascal, Head of Consulting Department at AiM about his experience with Flare3D. He told us
“I discovered Flare3D while testing different APIs. Flare3D stands out from the others because it is fast, esay to use and has an editor that allows for customization of 3D models created through TellWATCH, our CAD solution”
He made us quite happy by complementing Flare3D as being open, well designed and fitting perfectly with AiM’s development strategy. With its expertise in application development, AiM is now able to extend Flare3D by enriching the solution with new features. To sum up the features created as part of these projects: Visualization of a spring movements, management of camera movements for animations or management of pieces transparency.
Eric shared the next steps for AiM and told us that these projects opened a door to a world of possibilities for Flare3D integration by soon taking further steps in the field of stereoscopic 3D, virtual reality (interfacing with Oculus Rift) and the interactions with webcams.
The folks at Xenium Digital Private Ltd. shared with us “Style Your Drive” for Maruti Suzuki India at the Auto Expo 2014. This is a solution that was made with Flare3D where the audience were able to graffiti a car virtually via IR devices acting as painting guns . This interactive activity at their pavilion created a lot of buzz and engagement.
The activity was popular among the people attending the expo which was held from 5th to 11th February in New Delhi.
This solution shows how Flare3D can be integrated with cutting edge technology for developing strong brand interactive activations as well as a marketing and advertising tool.
