Augmented reality is the current hot trend in gaming, largely due to the success of Pokémon GO. Here’s another interesting game that uses augmented reality in a different way. It combines pinball with air hockey and wall climbing.
This rotating Air Hockey/Billiards table is perfect for any mancave since you get two games in one. It’s especially great if you are limited on space. This space saving solution is versatile and stylish, not to mention fun.
A few years ago we found out about mighty Roombas that were moonlighting as sumo wrestlers. Jose Julio’s RepRap 3D printer also has a sporting spirit. The robotics enthusiast unlocked his gadget’s potential and turned it into an air hockey player.
If you fancy yourself a good air hockey player, this robot may have a thing or two to teach you. It comes from Japanese researchers at Chiba University’s Namiki Lab. It is pretty good at competing against human players because the robot changes its strategy based on its human opponent’s playing style.
Now that Super Mario 3D Land is out, the dust on my Nintendo 3DS has finally been wiped off, and I’m actually playing a decent game on the otherwise unexciting handheld. One thing that hasn’t changed – or in fact has actually gotten more irritating – is those damned Koopa shells bouncing around at your feet and tripping you up.
