Live Running Simulator: Bringing Competitive Edge to Running Routines

Riga, Latvia – Intelligent Design SIA, a small studio located in Europe, today is pleased to announce the release of Live Running Simulator 1.0, its unique mobile application for iOS and Android devices. Live Running Simulator enables runners to race against other runners from various parts of the world, in real-time. The app optimizes technologies such as GPS and augmented reality to give runners an option to compete either with the CPU or with other runners, in different race categories (such as 400m, 800m, 1,500m and so on).

Live Running Simulator offers several other features that make it interesting and convenient for the users. For instance, the audio updates notify users about change in position and approaching opponents during a race. Users can select individual, single or tournament run modes and also opt for difficulty levels. There is also an option of watching highlight replays and a possibility to examine a graph of changed positions.

To make the user experience even more realistic, the app allows runners to create personalized 3D avatars. An avatar will run at the same speed as the user in the real world. The app serves to aid to several joggers and marathon runners who can now look forward to watching their personalized avatars running against avatars of other runners from across the world:

* Race with other runners on a real-time basis, or with the CPU
* Select individual run mode, single run mode or tournament mode
* Participate in any of the six races: 400m, 800m, 1,500m, 3,000m, 5,000m, or 10,000m
* Opt for level of difficulty: amateur, semi-pro, or pro
* Personalization options for 3D avatar
* Progress registration
* Audio updates during race
* Highlight replays and position graph
* Invite Facebook friends to inner circle competition

This studio’s mission is to develop mobile applications that do not simply entertain or kill time, but help users grow and fulfil their mental and/or physical potential. “We designed Live Running Simulator app so that more and more people adopt running as a routine exercise to stay fit and healthy, and enjoy competing with other runners from far corners of the world,” explained Roberts Austrums, board member of Intelligent Design SIA. “We also realised that many people find running alone unexciting, coupled with the fact that human mind responds better to competition, they decided to build an app that gives runners a real-life experience of racing with other runners. With Live Running Simulator app, one can compete with the virtual running community, and track his or her best time for each distance, as well as, compare their best time and medals earned with others. This app is ideal for maintaining good health, lose weight and a spark to daily workout regimes.”
