First-Ever Motion-Controlled Angry Birds TV Game App on Samsung SMART TV

Last Saturday morning I attended the blogger hands-on experience on Samsung SMART TV Angry Birds App at Best Denki One Utama. Samsung Malaysia Electronics Sdn Bhd; the global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies announced the availability of the first motion-controlled Angry Birds TV Game App for Samsung SMART TV which was developed by Rovio Entertainment. You can now enjoy playing the game with Samsung’s motion-control technology, on a larger screen and with great picture quality.

Angry Birds is one of the top smartphone apps worldwide simply because it’s fun with colourful characters. Did you know that since it’s launched back in November 2009, Angry Birds has been downloaded for more than 1 billion times across multiple platform? Now you know 🙂

With just the wave of the hand, users can control gameplay feature including initiating the slingshot and activating the unique skills of each bird. There is greater image output on a larger screen for maximised, immersive TV gaming experience.

Bloggers were guided personally and given the opportunity to play the game. Everyone took turn to try the motion experience before competing in a game. Samsung has worked closely with Rovio over the past year to apply it’s advanced technology to the Angry Birds TV Game App for Samsung SMART TVs. This is the first SMART TV game which was developed to work with Motion Control.

The competition among bloggers has started with Cik Lily Putih as the first participant.

Just to ease your curiosity on how to play the game using motion-control, I managed to snap a picture of the “How to play” banner. It’s totally different from playing on your smartphone. You need to let the SMART TV detect your hand movement before gaining control of the game.

Samsung SMART TV 2012 which has already been awarded with the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2012 Innovations Design and Engineering Award was officially launched in Malaysia on 19th April 2012, incorporating three life-enriching, highly-interactive solutions in the form of SMART Interaction, SMART Content and SMART Evolution. Users can also access a wide array of signature services and innovative features that redefine their experience with television besides enjoying unrivalled 3D and HD quality images.

These gigantic Angry Birds plushies is for the top three score of the blogger competition which unfortunately wasn’t mine lol!

Samsung is once again redefining home entertainment by making TV as the centrepiece of homes through the Angry Birds App and various other TV applications that was available on the Samsung SMART TV.
