The evolution of Human-Computer interaction. How the "mouse" will become obsolete.

Better than Star Trek, but not quite Minority Report... This looks amazing, take the time to watch some of this.

If only I were a rich Dungeon Master...

I consider myself pretty "old school" when it comes to tabletop gaming. Everybody using laptops and digital character sheets is a big turn off for me... However, this thing is pretty bad ass. I could do some damage with a tool like this.

What discourages me is, how digital can we get before we are just playing a video game? What is left to the imagination if it's all puked across an LCD? Call me traditional, but all I need on my table is dice, pencil, and paper... and maybe Mt. Dew.

Check out the demo:

Google Wave + Pulp Fiction = pretty hilarious

Wondering what Google Wave is like? Curious about it's capabilities? This will kind of help... and it's terribly entertaining.

I call shotgun!

First the Tauntaun sleeping bag.. and now a Power Wheels modded into a Warthog? Man I wish a was a child again. Apparently there is a whole community out there "tricking" these machines out, I bet they come up with some crazy customizations. Check out the video below to see this "hog" in action... Hopefully it's not quite the deathtrap that it is in Halo 3.

Tauntaun sleeping bag is for real this time!

Back on April 1st, posted this item intending for people to see it for what it was... an April Fools joke. Well, their website received an overwhelming amount of requests for the actual product to be made. After several months of battling for licensing and manufacture agreements they finally have a prototype made and are getting ready to start producing this thing. How awesome is that!

I know what my son is getting for Xmas this year.

Road Rash is back?!

This pre-vis clip shows us that a new Road Rash game has definitely been in the works... There are rumors floating around that maybe the game had gotten canned. Man I hope that's not true. I was a huge Road Rash fan back in my Sega Genesis days.

The game is nowhere near completion, but looks fucking great. I can't wait to crack some skulls!

Tales From the Lylat System

I loved Star Fox 64... I remember when I went to buy it with my mom on launch day 12 years ago. It came with the 64 rumble pack! How can you turn that down? Anyways... Enjoy the hilarity.

Google Wave: The "personal communication and collaboration tool"

100,000 lucky people were selected to try out Google Wave. I was not one of them . From what I understand, Wave combines your google mail, chat, docs, twitter, facebook, and dozens of other applications and social networking tools all into one page. Sounds like it'd be messy right? I have the utmost faith in Google that they're going to make my life easier. That one page is going to condense all my internet browsing tabs down into one page.

-This is a pretty good video to explain the professional benefits of Google Wave.
