Human PacMan hits real city streets

Many different researchers are taking different approaches to bringing PacMan into the streets. See:

  • Pacmanhattan (based out of NYU)
  • Virtual reality Pacman–from University of Singapore
  • Mixed Reality Lab
  • After years of video games providing some benefit in your hand-eye coordination and hopefully your multiprocessing ability, I’m glad to see technologies like these and ‘Dance Dance Revolution’ bringing some fitness benefit to video game players. Of course, being a soldier today also bears some similarities to playing one of these games. (The Singapore project was backed by military funding.)
