Gaming and Computer vision startup Techbla has for the first time launched a virtual boxing app on the App Store. Named Boxthebag, the app allows the user to hit a 3d punching bag by simply boxing in front of the ipad's camera.
Boxthebag uses a patent pending algorithm which detects the speed and force of the hand movement in real time and based on it the bag moves back and forth and gives the feeling of actual punching as it happens in the real world.This makes it a perfect app for boxing professionals and enthusiasts, sports and fitness lovers who are devoid of high quality apps to meet their needs. The unique thing about the app is that it has an inbuilt TV in which the user can actually see himself boxing and checkout his stance which further adds to the experience.
The app has high quality graphics which depicts an actual gym setting further adding to the realistic feel. This coupled with super smooth controls and realistic sound effect really makes it a one of its kind in the world. Company founder Pranav Agarwal has stated that the main goal of their startup has been from the very beginning to create game quality apps for the sports and fitness category leveraging on their extensive experience in casual game development and give the user a mindblowing and stunning experience.
Boxthebag 1.0 is $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Health & Fitness category. The iPhone and Android version are in final testing phase and will be shortly out on the store.
