Inspired by the way games help people master new technology, ustwo and Google's Advanced Technology & Projects (ATAP) team created Headed South, an app that gracefully introduces users to Motion Sense, a Pixel 4 feature powered by Google’s Soli miniature radar tech. Motion Sense lets users control a phone -- without touching the screen -- through hand gestures like a swipe or wave. The gameplay takes users through a beautiful and mysterious world via directional and omni-based swipe gestures, and translates them into a real sense of satisfaction through play.
