Incubator for wearable video games now accepting applicants
Companies like Valve and Google believe that "wearable computing," like high tech watches, VR headsets and Google's own Glass tech, are going to be the next big thing in technology.
Now Mind Pirate, the team behind the wearable computing game development platform Callisto
, has launched an incubator program to help developers create games for all this upcoming wearable technology.
In a joint effort with the Canadian Film Centre, Mind Pirate is accepting applications to its incubator through until October 22, and is looking for studios that are interesting in creating games for Google Glass, the Pebble watch, the Samsung Gear, and more.
Those U.S. and Canadian developers accepted into the three-month ideaBOOST/Mind Pirate Production Lab program will receive $10,000 Canadian dollars ($9,638), and be given access to the Callisto technology, which won't be made publicly available until 2014.
Note that the program will begin on November 20, and require that you attend the kick-off session at the CFC headquarters in Toronto. Six studios will be selected before this date. Any developers interested in the program should visit the official website
for more details.
