Augmented Reality video game spec

I see no reason that we couldn’t have games like this right now. How about WoW style battles in live terrain against CGI monsters that everyone can see from a different angle. Or ghost hunting with binaural sound in old buildings. or treasure hunts or capture the flag. you could use item recognition to do scavenger hunts and confirm/broadcast what you’ve found as soon as you find it. Now if I could just afford a smart phone.

It’s been a hell of a year, and one where I’ve really tried to start paying attention to politics and policy and the goings-on in our country.

Camera on the end of a broad sword

This is fun and well executed.

Fake it – Denki Groove

but i really just want this to be a daft punk video. I also thought that this was going to be a CGI loop of divers, but it isn’t. Nice work!

Faves of the Week:

Tron Sweded:

Jumping on the Tron bandwagon. I still get a kick out of the “sweded” format from “Be Kind, Rewind”

Augmented Reality Written Sign Translator

This looks damn handy! I wonder if it mimics handwriting, too.

Animated with Google Docs

Infographics Gone Wild! I do a pie chart every week for one of the publications I design and have them all saved sans information in a big Illustrator Doc.

Video Game with Pee Peripheral

I’ve been talking about this one for years. What better way to spend 30 seconds at the john. You could have all sorts of mini games revolving around force (distance), quantity (balloon burst game), stop start, precision, targets, maybe even an sobriety tester.

Behind the Scenes: Aqua Teen Hunger Force

The ATHF gang recording their lines. My favorites are the Mooninites and the Plutonians.

Paraskiing down a mountain

Superior, Speed Fly from Marshall Miller on Vimeo.

Put this on full screen and sit back. I just kept waiting for one of the parachutes to get caught on a tree or rock and end the trip really quick.
