CASE STUDY• SPIN MASTER TOYS- AIR HOGS BRAND
Spin Master: Air Hogs Brand: Mission Critical Studios developed a toy aircraft controlling application using the Unity game engine to generate specific sound clips ( as small as .004 of a second in length) to be converted into specific infra red pulses to control the toy helicopters remotely.
With a lack of specific data from the manufacturer and the lack of true native audio support in the game engine this project was a satisfying challenge. In order for the application to allow for the control of a responsive aircraft the time delay between the controller and the aircraft had to be infinitesimally small.
Each audio pulse that we generated only lasted just .004 of a second.
We eventually developed a specialized plugin able to directly tie into IOS native audio system on a granular level and enabled us to achieve success.
