Realm Pictures wowed us last year with a new type of roleplaying game – chat-controlled live action first-person shooters. The company recently worked with developer IO Interactive to create another game based on its stealth series Hitman.
Back in August, Realm Pictures shared a live action zombie game where strangers on Chatroulette, Omegle and Skype controlled the hero while viewing the adventure from his perspective. The company is back with an even more wicked horror adventure, and this time it’s set in space.
Realm Pictures created the 21st century equivalent of text-based games: a chat-based game. The film studio set up a live action zombie roleplaying game in their office and then had people on Chatroulette, Omegle and Skype control the hero in first-person.
Some people live on in the memories of others, even when they pass on, because of the life they’ve led and the differences that they’ve made on the lives of others. Others may be forgotten, while still others will live on as avatars in the online realm.
Distance learning isn’t as easy as it seems. It seems like I discovered Appear.in a tad too late because I’m just a few semesters away from graduating with my Master’s degree, but you might find this service useful.
Seeing a doctor can be a pain sometimes. It’s painful and inconvenient enough to be sick as it is. What’s even worse is having to sit at a doctor’s office for hours on end and wait for the receptionist to call your name.
ATMs and I don’t have the best of relationships. I once had my card eaten by the machine and I had to wait the whole night before their technician came to help me out. I’ve also been cheated out of a couple of bills and touched a wad of chewed-up gum someone stuck at the bottom of the money slot.
One of the more recent features to turn up in IM programs and services is to notify others when they have read your messages. This can be both good and bad. If this is something that annoys you on Facebook Chat, then you should try Chat Undetected.
Man evolved from apes. This isn’t new information, since the theory of evolution was drilled into our heads early on in school. And even though we’re just a few chromosomes different from these apes, the differences are massive.
I’m always annoyed at the low resolution I have on my integrated webcam, so it makes sense to get something with a more pixels. HP’s HD 5210 will allow you to Skype in HD, which can be good or bad, depending on how you’re looking that day.
The Tomodachi Block system is an interesting concept that allows you to stay connected with friends by using wooden blocks that act as tiny wooden displays. Remember the intro to the Brady Bunch where they are all in a grid and yet are seemingly interacting with each other?
If you’e ever been curious to know if robots would ever be smart enough to have conversations with one another – without so much as a human in the room. We now have our answer – and it’s not looking pretty for either man or machine.
The Android versus iPhone fanboy battle is almost as bad as the Mac versus PC war. There are few things in the world for an Android lover worse than not having a cool app or feature that iOS devices get.
As expected by pretty much the entire world, Steve Jobs today showed off the new iPhone 4 at WWDC 2010 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.
With all of the leaked prototypes over the last couple of months, we weren’t expecting too many surprises today.
There are nice surprises on ChatRoulette, after all. Take ChatRoulette for a spin and you might stumble on Merton, who instead of brandishing his organ, shows off his piano instead, bursting out meta-tunes about his chat mate with all the charm of Ed Helms, Ben Folds, and Flight of the Conchords.
Telepresence is going to be huge someday. It looks like MIT’s MeBot is the latest in telepresence robotics, which allows you to feel more like the person you are talking to is in the same room as you – assuming the person on the other end of the line looks like a robot.
