    ...coming soon to your neighborhood.

    The tech guys at Univ of Singapore are developing a mixed-reality pacman game in which you run around real streets, collecting virtual goodies and avoiding ghosts

    homepage with images and videos here

    apparently it is being developed for military purposes, but it could lead to some cool games.

    It sounds really cool. This type of training for the military should be very helpful. It would be bringing computers into the real world of gaming, with actual physical contact.

    Why would somebody go through the trouble for this? And maybe I should tell them about a wonderful technology called a treadmill, they should adapt to walking in a very strait line.
