This at first might seem like stand up comedy, someone playing the role of a crazy professor, complete with white coat, large glasses and fluffy hair. But then when you keep listening, you start to realize this guy (Marvin Minksy, a pioneer on Artificial Intelligence) is just being himself, talking about the things he uses his time on earth for.
Oh my, what a time intensive project this must have been…
If you liked LocoRoco for the PSP, this might be of interest to you. The makers of LocoRoco have made Patapon, a game that looks very promising to the ones that loved that awfully sweet world of the singing, splitting and joining LocoRoco’s. The signature of the makers is all over the game, but it looks quite different and is based on an entirely new concept: rhythm
based gameplay! Perhaps we can look at this as a mixture between … LocoRoco and Guitar Hero?
This sure looks like a world changing toy!
An 81 year old man in Australia wanted to commit suicide, so he turned to the internets for some advice. The solution he found and used was (of course) a killer bot! He built the thing and succeeded! I’m so curious to know what the killer bot looked like, but as far as I can tell, there isn’t a picture available yet. What a way to go … pretty cool actually, compared to the more conventional ways of dying. Full article here.
It’s frikkin’ useless, but frikkin’ fun! A glow in the dark multi-touch Rubik’s cube. Who has not only the knowledge, but also the money and the time to put a thing like this together?
This robot was ‘animated’ with brainwaves! Full story at we-make-money-not-art.
This is pretty weird. Supposedly, Steven Spielberg has come up with the concept of the game “Boom Blox” that will be released by EA somewhere in the near future. The strange thing is, that Spielberg’s signature is very hard to find in at least the trailer. Let’s see how Spielbergonesque the game will turn out.
Spielberg or not, looks like a fun game to play!
