iPhone Alternate Reality Game Using Twilio
One of the things we have been working on is a virtual game that incorporates Real Time Strategy, Alternate Reality and Augmented Reality for a rich virtual gaming experience. We wanted to proof of concept some Alternate Reality concepts by integrating the simulation of interacting with other humans by using dynamic content from a remote phone back to the iPhone. We saw Twilio and figured it would be a good test to see how it worked. We were very impressed than in just an hour or so we had things up and working, fully integrated into the game. (In total it was about 4 hours as we spent an hour and hit a road block. Then twittered our frustration. Twilio support within an hour sent an email back helping troubleshoot. When we got the mail within minutes we were up and running).
Here is a quick demo of the brief implementation. We plan much more complicated integrations in the near future.
So what are YOU doing with Twilio? We have loved the product offering so far and the community has been fabulous. If you are doing Telephony applications you really need to check them out!
