In conjunction with the release of the film, Inception, Benchtop Creative partnered with Addison Interactive to produce a client app for Warner Brothers. Inception: Mobile Architect is a new game app for iPhone and Android, that allows you to bend reality in the palm of your hand! After taking a photo of your environment, Google Satellite imagery will be folded into the photo, mimicking the effect from the film. The satellite imagery will allow the application to be useable in any outdoor setting with a skyline. The app uses the GPS for geo-‐location, image processing to generate composited images, and animation to produce the ‘bending’ effect from the film.
From the Apple App Store:
