Summary
Who is the best penalty-killer in the world? Is it Iker Casillas? Petr Cech? Or maybe just some local guy from around the corner? Dutch startup Storioes launches a new iPhone-application that will find out: keepAR.

Augmented keeping

In keepAR’s augmented reality environment, balls will be fired at you from a virtual penalty spot. Featuring an active Wii-like control, keepAR enables you to virtually punch the balls away using your iPhone! No hassle with small buttons, you actually move your hands towards the ball just like a real keeper! This video shows you how: http://bit.ly/McC0Th.

Play against your friends

So if you’re at a bar watching some football and see people diving, check if they’re holding a screen in their hands. If so: it’s not the booze, they’re just trying to be the best keepAR in the world!

Of course, the fun really starts if you can compete with your friends. Everyone who thinks of himself being a true keeper can post his score on multiple social media channels. Combine this with a proud picture of yourself as a football card and you’re set! You can play for any country you would like to defend, all the EURO2012 shirts can be found within the Fan Store.

Warning

The App keepAR is fun but addictive. It could well be the key source of stress reduction during the Championship. Download keepAR now for free at: http://bit.ly/KwKkNX.
