Brass Monkey & Star Wars: Trench Run 2.0 at E3

June 21st, 2010 by Mike Oldham

Time Magazine’s Techland writer Peter Ha caught up with Chris Allen at the E3 Conference to discuss the unreleased version of Star Wars: Trench Run and Infrared5′s latest product, Brass Monkey.

The new version of the Trench Run is set to launch in the coming weeks, and the Brass Monkey iPhone game controller is going to blow your mind. Brass Monkey allows users to control web based experiences (Flash & Unity3D) with their smart phones (iPhone & Android) to create a highly immersive gaming experience. By bridging the gap between mobile and web based gaming, Infrared5 has essentially created a experience similar to the Wii, but without the need for a console. Brass Monkey can connect multiple devices simultaneously and works over the WiFi network. Although the technology has its obvious connections to the gaming industry, it also has a multitude of other implementations, i.e. education, medical, interactive billboards, etc.

Infrared5 is licensing the Brass Monkey SDK to other developers so that they can also create their own unique applications. We urge you to imagine the possibilities!
