Recently we’ve won the Third prize in the Barcelona FinApps Party, a 24 hours developing marathon of mobile financial aplications.
Our project is called “Pay & Play” and is a virtual 3D payment gateway that works with NFC and/or other ways, with a customizable avatar representing the customer, geolocalization of the commerce to include direct promotions and/or ads from the local shop, and finally a fun score of the loyalty points (punts estrella) gained with your purchase.
And we really integrated the “La Caixa” API (Library, Framework) to do the payments, check the credit cards, read the loyalty points…
We tried to do an interface where the user can feel confident with the virtual world, have fun with the gameplay and feel identified with the avatar.
I deployed here a version without API connection, so the actions are simulated:
Besides, I performed and upgraded a different branch of the application version just to show the potential of the avatar state machine.
I call it “Face, Go & Rotate”
He/she can move anywhere in a smooth way: stopping, facing the new destination, walking and finally rotating to the desired direction direction. All with the appropiate animations and transicions.
