The New York Lottery has just released a scratch-off game that can be played in augmented reality using your iPhone or Android smartphone. It’s called Gold Castle, and it is the first of its kind in the country. You simply scratch off a small section for “3-D Play” and scan the barcode into an app. A castle pops up out of your ticket, and you can tap glowing windows to see if you won.
City & State recently spoke with the head designer of the new game, Liana Kadisha, who is the chief products officer at Paymaxs.
The state of New York will invest just over $450,000 in new fingerprinting technology through state grants to 39 police departments statewide. With this investment, the state has provided nearly $1.2 million to local law enforcement since last fall, enabling a total of 90 agencies across the state to replace existing devices that are old or obsolete.
Local law enforcement agencies were eligible to apply for up to $10,000 for each device or other related equipment, such as printers, scanners and cameras. Priority was given to those agencies with the highest number of arrests from 2013 through 2015 and agencies hosting regional servers that allow others to electronically submit fingerprints to the state and Federal Bureau of Investigation could apply for funding for more than one device.
Digital fingerprint technology enables law enforcement agencies and the courts to instantly receive an arrestee’s positive identification and any past criminal history and warrant information from the state.
