Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Misto, mScape, Pluribus, Panoply

Posted on Thursday, April 5 @ 19:53:57 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
No I'm not using the random word generator, Hewlett Packard was showing off a bunch of odd new electronics at their event yesterday.

I was expecting a fairly humdrum showing of Voodoo PC gaming rigs (they were there), but HP was also showing off a bunch of research projects that are nowhere near ready for the public, and one that may never be.

The Panoply and Pluribus projects use multiple, cheap digital projectors synced to each other in order to create some impressive new displays. There were a dozen of them projecting a single, bright wall sized display that was being used to play Madden. In another display, multiple projectors were used to crate a seamless curved display that arced around the gamer. I would need to own a very large house before I could get either of those.

The Misto table was pretty cool too - it's a coffee table with a huge touchscreen top. It was running Windows XP, but they had some custom tools for displaying photos and movies, and a puzzle game. Do not spill your beer.

But certainly the strangest product was the mScape which is the first piece of consumer electronics guaranteed to get you run over by a truck©. That's why I tracked down this video they showed, "Roku's Reward". If the future of gaming involves running away from imaginary boulders, right down the middle of the street into oncoming traffic that you can't see because you're staring into a little screen, we're all in a lot of trouble.

Who the hell names their kid "six" anyway? First five must have been killed already.
