iPhone 4 Gyroscope Controlled Air Drums Available on App Store - Published on 08/09/10
Washington based Logic Consulting today announces Gyro Air Drums 1.0, a virtual drum set simulator for the iPhone 4. Gyro Air Drums uses the iPhone 4 gyroscope sensor to put the player in the center of a virtual air drum set. The iPhone is the drumstick and the drums exist in a 300 degree setup around the user. By leveraging the MEMS gyroscope in addition to existing accelerometer, Gyro Air Drums transforms all the sensor data into an enhanced, fun drumming experience for the user.
Tacoma, Washington - Logic Consulting today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Gyro Air Drums 1.0, a virtual drum set simulator for the iPhone 4. Gyro Air Drums is a first of its kind app, taking advantage of the iPhone 4's vibrational gyroscope sensor to put the player in the center of a virtual drum set.
The iPhone 4 uses a vibrational gyroscope, called a microelectromechanical system (MEMS) gyroscope. This in addition to the existing accelerometer allows the Gyro Air Drums to detect three dimensional (roll, yaw, and pitch) rotation as well as device tilt. Gyro Air Drums transforms all the sensor data into an enhanced, fun drumming experience for the user.
Using Gyro Air Drums, a multitude of drums are arranged at two vertical levels in a 300 degree setup around the user. Tilting the iPhone 4 upward allows users to hit the upper level instruments, the hi-hat, crash, and cowbell. Holding the device level allows users to hit the snare and toms. Pointing the device in any horizontal direction around the player brings differing drums into view as if the drum set were actually set up around them.
