What if games had been invented 500 years ago and then all of a sudden in the year 2009 books were invented. How would we perceive books then? See what happens if you start looking at things fom a different point of view.

This dress can be used to play Pong on. It is made by Max Moswitzer and Margarete Jahrmann to "dissolute the boundaries between body and screen". I guess this dress is what some like to call wearable technology art. A while back I posted '4 Ways Of Playing Pong'. If crazy outbursts like these keep popping up I can start to make The Pong Top 100. via and via

It's incredible what gaming consoles are capable of these days. Take a look at a demo of the Milo project. Though I do wonder what would happen if the actress would start telling Milo things that weren't in the script.

image BMW seems to enjoy hightech sales tools in their showrooms. This time they show us a BMW M3 racing simulator. Not the ultimate racing simulator but still heaps of fun. The suspension of the car reacts to bumps in the road so you should be in for quite a ride.

I would like to give this game a try. It's called Dagaz and it trains your meditation level. The combination of gaming and meditation still strikes me as odd though. But perhaps that's just my narrow mind. ;-) Watch the video to...
In about 6 weeks the new Wii Fit exercise game will be available in Holland. I am seriously thinking of buying it.

You see a huge display in a public area which invites you to swtich on the Bluetooth connection on your mobile so you can start playing Snake against others that happen to be in the same area. All of a sudden the people standing next to you are your competitors. I think this is only a first step of what's to come. Nevertheless, a pretty cool first step. via nextwall
They are beta testing their new player at Dailymotion. The coolest feature is probably that they now show videos in High Definition. This trailer of the Race Driver Grid game shows you what that can look like. Broadband web connection required.

Pong With Your Ass[/b] The Weeble is a new gameconcept made by Debby Thebrath which invites players to sit down on a seat and participate in a game in a physically active way. The thing is that your seat is your controller during the game. To use your controller you have to move your ass while playing. In the video you see how Debby is playing Pong. The other two seats/controllers are not used while she's playing but you get a pretty good idea of what the Weeble is about. Other retro games like PacMan, Tron and Space Invaders or completely new gameconcepts can also be played on the Weeble.

image Game Over is one of the art projects developed by the Swiss artist Guillaume Reymond (NOTsoNOISY creative agency). It consists of a series of stop-motion animation movies which revive some of the very first video games. The pixels in these games are replaced by a group of real human-beings that are moving from seat to seat in a theatre during about 4 to 6 hours. Result: three giant human-scale video games. Watch them here.Pole Position Space Invaders Pong Related News: - Top 10 Of Things To Play Pong With - Real Life Pinball - Game Over - Retro Games Revival Animation

For the second time a virtual version of the band U2 has done a concert in virtual world Second Life. The people who made this happen did it to give attention to one.org and other good causes. The 'concert' is probably an audio-stream of a live concert on DVD. So there could be some juridical consequences for whoever was responsible. But since it was all for a good cause the U2 lawyers will probably look away. Though they might sue them for making the members of the band look like this. ;-) PS The fact that I posted about U2 yesterday AND today is pure coincidence.
