Our development bigwigs went all the way to the top of the food chain — well, the fast food chain — when Burger King chose us to create a Halloween-themed Ghostbusters game for their app.
The app uses magnetic mobile phone sensors to detect magnetic fields nearby and rewards users with coupons when catching a ghost.
We had to put our nerd hats on to achieve this fun experience for BK app users.
Our task was to extract and transmit magnetometer sensor information from a mobile app to an iFrame ghost detector application at regular intervals.
To register the ghost detection, we converted sensor data to total magnitude using a unique mathematical formula and validated it against natural magnetic fields.
