Tweet Augmented reality has the potential to bring digital artifices to the real world. AR gurus constantly speak of geo-location, intuitive search, the Internet of Things and other such high concepts. Digital natives squeeze efficient behavior out of a chaotic world, using their […]
Tweet…but not here. Trying a little something different with some of my augmented reality posts. Going to just single post some of them over on Games Alfresco, especially the video heavy ones like this. With a little help from Ori (well, a LOT of help), I put up a listing of many of the current […]
TweetIn my dream world, the Kinect system wouldn’t be tethered to the XBox 360. Instead, it would hook to the TV and have an extensive app library like the iPhone. Sweet spot around 1:25 for a ninja vanish move. The Kinect makes invisibility so easy, it’s mind-boggling. And better work on your arm endurance.
Tweet “It’s better than Angry Birds,” said my nine-year old daughter. And who am I to argue about that, but given that Angry Birds has dominated our house for the last two months, I was just a little surprised. Now the first question, one might ask is: “Why are you letting your daughter play Angry […]
Tweet Playing games is intrinsic to our nature, so naturally, gaming is a great introduction to augmented reality. Below are three different ways augmented reality is being used to get our gaming fix. AR Invaders Shooter games were the first breakout, relatively speaking, for the nascent technology. Yet I haven’t yet seen one that eliminates […]
Tweet While Microsoft denies that the Xbox has been hacked, pure semantics I tell you, the new Kinect system has been unleashed for uses other than the ones planned by the giant of the redwoods. Adafruit Industries offered a $3,000 prize which was collected by “Hector” for completing the task. The hacking was important enough to get […]
TweetThe production values on these indie game trailers boggle my mind. The game initially reminds me of Conquest, but with a lot more bells and whistles. Clover Studios has brought together location based gaming and tower defense, which makes for a good peanut butter and chocolate combination. Though with any multi-player strategy game, off-time […]
TweetWe’re probably at least five years away from something like this, but it sure does look fun.
TweetWhile I’m probably not going to be playing Balloon Burst from Popcode obsessively like I do Civ 5 on the PS3, the game is much better than the floating pixel games of six months ago (I’m looking at you Firefighter 360.) Still, I’m looking forward to that innovative AR game that I just can’t put down. Keep at […]
Tweet “They have returned” I’m a sucker for a good tag line. Gary Hayes from MUVEdesign has put out a teaser video for his upcoming, well 2011 release date, game called Time Treasure. Gary explains more on his blog, but I wanted to add my comments. Gary says: Without giving the plot away, the structure of this […]
