Combined Virtual And Physical Chess Board Projection Game Prototype
This video from Microsoft shows off a prototype device that projects a screen onto a tabletop and then allows you to interact with it via motion sensing. Probably the best example of it's use in the video is they have one side of a chess board (the side you are playing) as physical objects and the other side as virtual. So the person you are playing against is displayed via the projection over the chess board.

Turn An Optical Mouse Into A Reverse Trackball Device Like A Bar Of Soap
Here is a pretty cool do it yourself project that turns an optical mouse into kind of a reverse trackball. Basically it is an optical mouse shaped like a piece of soap that is in an elastic/silk/polyester bag. You can rotate the mouse inside the bag like it was a wet bar of soap. You can also move the fabric of the bag with your thumb over the optical sensor causing the mouse cursor to move around. The video itself explains it much better including how make one for yourself. It seems like it works pretty well from watching the people in the video play games and navigate windows with it.

Real Hamster Side Scroller Video Game Video For The Win
Here's a video where a hamster runs through what looks like a cardboard cutout of a side scroller video game. It seems like for most of the video the 'level' is up and down but for some of it they turn the 'level' on it's side to make the hamster go where they want it to. In any event the effect is of a hamster running around in a side scroller video game collecting food treats. They add monsters and moving platforms by using wires with paper cutouts glued to them. At a couple points in the video the hamster things about climbing out of the 'level' completely.

Wearable Dress With An LED Display And Controls Where You Can Play Pong
Here is a pretty weird video of a dress that has a LED grid on the front of it and two controls which let you play pong on the dress display. The video is kind of weird as it looks like it was filmed in some Eastern European country. On top of this there is scrolling text at the bottom of the video which is also pretty weird. In any event the lady is standing there in the dress in what looks like an arcade. Two guys walk up and she gives each of them a game controler. They play pong on the dress display. The display is very very low resolution.

Kids Float Around Inside Giant Blow Up Balls On A Pond In China
Here is a pretty weird video from I think China where it has kids floating around on a river or pond in blown up plastic balls. There is a launching area and the kid is inside a giant plastic ball. The kid walks up to the water while inside the plastic ball and then floats out onto the water. They've used these kinds of things on game shows in the US before but I've never seen them just put kids in them and float them out onto a pond my themselves. Is the plastic ball sealed or where does their air come from? What happens if one of them starts sinking.

Video Of The Game Runner Video Game Treadmill Control Device
Here is a video of a treadmill which plugs into your computer and records the treadmill movement as forward movement in video games. This one is called Gamerunner and you run on the treadmill and then use a bike handle type device which is mounted on the front of the treadmill to move and fire. I have a similar product called a SimCycle which doesn't work very good for various reasons. The problems with the SimCycle were that it wasn't a real tension flywheel, your knees were always hitting the desk, and you would be winded but you couldn't stop (specifically in racing games) because if you did you'd lose the game. I'd say the Gamerunner is probably a better product then the SimCycle because you're standing up instead of sitting and you can hang on to the bike controller. Still the problem of getting winded though.
There is a review of the Gamerunner here and you can watch the video of the Gamerunner in action below or view it on the host site.Read More >>

Waste Time At Work With This Creative Line Rider Addictive Flash Drawing Toy
Line Rider is not a game but a toy according to the author. Basically you take a pencil and draw curves and lines on a white background. You can then press play and it launchs a guy on a sled into your line drawing. The sled slides down the lines. If you make them too steep the guy crashs. If you make them too flat he just comes to a hault. If you make them just right you can get a crazy rollercoaster going on. In the video below the Line Rider guy slides around on the lines for 1 minute and 44 seconds. He ends up in a line drawing of a helicopter. There was another video where the guy is moving so fast that be blasts through the lines themselves.
Watch the video of the crazy long line rider below or on the host site, or click over and view more videos of line riders, or play Line Rider right now!Read More >>

Trackmania Video Showing 1000 Cars Running The Same Track At The Same Time
Here's a screen capture video from a racing game called Trackmania. Apparently you can record your track run and then play it back. This video takes 1000 track runs and plays them all back in the same track at the same time. The video itself is pretty crazy looking as all of the cars look like they move as a fluid. There is a second video which has 3000 track runs played back which also looks cool but it isn't edited quite as well. The cars race through the track and each time they hit a jump they spill all over the place. At the end of the video all the cars jump out into the ocean.
