Beautiful! It's like paintball by Salvador Dalí! Can't wait for this one, and you actually exercise while playing videogames!

interesting... would have been cool to see some video clips to really see how it works though...

im not sure i get it 100%.... does it superimpose 3d objects onto the otherwise normal background of wherever you are standing??...

anyway i spose its too early to be getiing excited about anything like this...

after playing ilovebees and thinking about what the Nintendo DS could do, something like this isn't to far off for everyone. you will no longer be playing video games in your family room.

all the Nintendo DS [or the PSP] needs is a GPS add-on and companies can hold city wide games. be it a scavenger hunt or 'hide n seek.' find your way to a wi-fi spot and dl the next clue.

the GBA already has a camera add-on, so combine that with a GPS add-on and you could superimpose graphics over real time video [except instead of a VR headset, we would be looking through our DS].

there are tons of people out there that play GPS games, soon enough, there will be a lot more...

And what will happen when one of those little virtual yellow balls happens to be covering an open manhole cover, small child, on coming car... ?

Well then.. I guess it'll be time to re-define the concept of.. Darwinism.

i guess the people who design the games will have to NOT be complete idiots... then i guess our kids just might be alright.... :shrug:

Then it would be game over.
