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.
Het derde deel van Everything is a Remix. Voor mij was het gedeelte dat start bij speeltijd 7:41min het meest aansprekend. Het gaat over 'multiple discovery' : Dat op vrijwel hetzelfde tijdstip door verschillende mensen dezelfde ontdekking wordt gedaan. De vraag is...
