"Beats, Advanced Rhythm Game" is a music rhythm game for Google Android phones/devices. Dance with arrows to the beat of music StepMania/DDR (Dance Dance Revolution) style or tap circles Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan/Elite Beat Agents style!
This is a proof-of-concept gameplay demo of Beats 1.5.5b with Microsoft XBOX Kinect support. The song used in this demo is "Chaoz Impact" by ParagonX9, stepfile by Lisek with permission for distribution with Beats. The person learning to "dance with his hands" in the demo is my lab partner, Eric Chen while I (Philip Peng) am recording the video. This was our final project for ESE350 (Microcontrollers & Embedded Systems) at University of Pennsylvania http://www.seas.upenn.edu/~ese350/
The Kinect is connected to a Beagleboard-xM running Android (Froyo 2.2 via the Rowboat project), which is running a modified version of Beats that includes Kinect support via OpenFramework. For details, see the forum post at http://beatsportable.com/forum/viewto... (includes a link to our blog and a full report with detailed steps on setting things up as well as the modified source code and apk for download).
For the latest official release (aka the normal phone version), download this app via the Android Market (search for "beats", "rhythm", or "stepmania") or visit http://beatsportable.com/downloads/
