With rolomotion, Motion Tennis brings the most immersive experience on iOS to the living room.

Unlike other motion gaming consoles, there is no need for extra sensory and gaming hardware as rolomotion converts iPhone or iPod Touch into a motion controller.

Motion Tennis stream to a high definition secondary display on your HD TV using AirPlay mirroring and also significantly reduces the mirroring lag with in-game optimizations. Users can give accurate directions to the ball just by naturally swinging the iPhone/iPod Touch like a tennis racquet and also play different kind of tennis shots like groundstroke, slice and lob.
