Android app contest wants game developers to show their wares

New contest offers up cash prizes for savvy Google Android developers to show their stuff

App developers can partake in the recently launched Extreme Motion Android Challenge 2014, a competition to win cash prizes and the chance to meet Electronic Arts founder Trip Hawkins. Extreme Reality technology opens the door for Android smartphone owners to use built-in cameras for real-time body movement tracking.


Game developers have until May 20 to submit completed apps, which will be judged by Hawkins and other panelists.

"No longer limited to gaming consoles or other hardware, motion control is adding an entirely new and exciting experience to games on any platform," said Sarit Firon, Extreme Reality CEO, in a statement. "We look forward to seeing the innovations in motion gaming created by participants in the Extreme Android Challenges, from adventure to sports to fitness or dance games."

Independent app developers have a golden opportunity to release an app - and whether freeware to provide a wider user base, an attempt to monetize app development, or to draw attention from larger companies.
