The projected street grid of your childhood...
3D Pac-Man at New York's Museum of Art and Design!
As part of the Babycastles Summit 2012, Japanese video game designer Keita Takahashi has created a series of enhanced video games, including the old arcade favorite Pac-Man. It's projected on the walls and ceiling of a small, dark room, and it looks challenging and potentially a bit dizzying. Innovating such an established classic might seem like trying to improve on the bicycle, but we give Takahashi props for trying.
He's also designed high-tech versions of Mario Ball and one of our all-time favorite video games, Duck Hunt. We wait with bated breath for video confirmation on the latter count.
