As a New Yorker, a digital geek and a wanna-be-gamer-if-only-a-game-was-interactive-with-my-daily-life, I found myself wanting to interact and battle with the other people on the streets (well, not everyone, just the slow walkers… you know who you are… how do you get to where you’re going? Do you have all the time in the world? I don’t. I want to get there and get there on time… Sorry, I digress) while doing my most mundane activities; going to work, walking to the store, or just shopping with my girlfriend.
What is Super Street Fire? It’s Street Fighter 2 only with the fire of a thousand suns (aka 32 flame effects). Set on a real-life version of Ryu’s classic stage, Super Street Fire sees two brave fighters duke it out for up to three rounds of ridiculously intense gameplay. The two players stare each other down while poised ten metres apart on their own elevated platforms.

More Than a Cyber Café I’m embarrassed to admit it but I was one of the first people to criticize the concept of cyber cafés and even bet they wouldn’t last. To cut the story short, I had to swallow my words and I’m here to make amends.
Getty Images Within three years of starting his Hollywood career, Douglas Trumbull changed the moviemaking process irrevocably; working with Stanley Kubrick on 1968’s 2011: A Space Odyssey , when he was barely 25, he not only created a landmark cinematic experience, but pioneered special-effects techniques which filmmakers continue to use even today. Since then he’s done Close Encounters of the Third Kind , Star Trek: The Motion Picture , Blade Runner , and most recently, Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life . And almost 45 years later, Trumbull still doggedly pushes the industry to grow and change, even if he finds resistance – or worse, indifference - to innovations which he claims will not just revolutionize current technologies but resuscitate the dwindling receipts studios and exhibitors try to squeeze from the theatrical experience.

One of the coolest sports ever has gotten a little cooler with the addition of laser pistols. The futuristic firearms made their Olympic debut in the modern pentathlon at the 2012 Summer Games . The pistols are safer, allowing spectators to get closer to the action, and have changed competition by allowing organisers to incorporate the running and shooting disciplines in a combined event.

The Night Journey project is a game project conceived by Bill Viola, an internationally acclaimed artist and MacArthur fellow, which uses video game technologies to explore the universal story of an individual mystic's journey towards enlightenment. The game is being developed in collaboration with a team from the USC Game Innovation lab, which has spent the past year exploring narrative, visual and procedural themes related to the topic of enlightenment and the possibilities for the project allowed by the game medium with the objective of creating a work that stretches the boundaries of what games may be possible of communicating with its unique content and mechanics. Narrative inspiration for this project includes the lives and writings of great historical figures including: Rumi, the 13th century Islamic poet and mystic; Ryokan, the 18th century Zen Buddhist poet, Shankara; the 8th century Hindu mystic and commentator on the Upanishads; and St.

Food Chain is a two-person mixed reality experience currently in development in collaboration with the Mixed Reality Lab at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. SnapShotMapPlot is an early prototype version of Food Chain. It is a collaborative mapping game in which one player walks across the USC campus, carrying a laptop and a GPS unit in a backpack, and wearing a cap with a webcam and 3DOF orientation sensor. In the Zemeckis Media Lab, a 3D model of the campus buildings is projected as a four-screen panorama. The indoor client receives position and orientation from the outdoor player (via the USC wireless network), and updates the panorama so that spectators indoors continuously see the model from the same point of view.
