My Talk From Playful in October

Here’s the talk I did at Playful on 31.10.08. It’s basically about the changing nature of scores in games and how scores are starting to infect everything.

Sorry it’s taken me so long to get it up online, but I had to get the video off the guys, and then it turned out to have been shot from a strange angle where you’ve got no idea what’s going on. So I did a bit of jiggery-pokery and combined the video with the Keynote presentation and synched it up as best I could. And the audio is a bit muffled, but hopefully you can make out what’s going on…

Augmented Xmas

I was determined not to post anything about anyone’s Christmas greeting things. But then the lovely buggers at Special Moves mailed me something that I couldn’t not share. I hate them, in a nice way.

Having got this, I kind of knew what was coming next…


And here’s the results:

Nicely done. Good work chaps!

I can also recommend this post from Ori – Top 10 Milestones in Augmented Reality from 2008, another solid list of the cool stuff that you ought to know about from that field.

Guess The Logo Game

Here’s a little ‘game’ that I made (using Keynote and exporting it as Flash). See if you can guess the companies from their Arabic logos…

Sorry, it’s a big file and there’s no pre-loader or loading bar. But that’s how it rolls.

Stunning Video

Simply brilliant…

I quite like the track (larytta – souvenir de chine) too in a proggy kind of way.

I wonder if it’s cruel though? I hadn’t really thought about that…
