BlowPit

BlowPit is a fun and exciting game. The players compete by blowing onto the phone screen to rotate various spinning objects, ranging from a pinwheel to a jet engine, as fast or as long as possible.

 
 
 
BlowPit moves beyond the traditional touch-based interaction with a smartphone and leverage other sensors to provide a rich and exciting experience. In particular, it uses the microphone to detect how strong a player is blowing at the screen of the phone, which in turn rotates the blades of a fan shown on the screen.

There are two different competition modes: speed and endurance.

 
 
Several different spinning objects, including a pinwheel, a fan, an air-conditioning unit, and a jet engine, provide different difficulty levels.
 
 
Great emphasis was put into polishing the user interaction and graphical design to provide an immersive and fun experience.
