Quake in the real world

| 2 Comments

A team at the University of South Australia's Wearable Computing Laboratory is working on integrating the Quake computer game with the real world. The ARQuake Project allows the user to walk around the campus wearing goggles and see computer-generated monsters overlaid on the real-world view. Because the campus has been modelled in the computer the creatures appear to move around the buildings. Looks like a fun combination of "first person shooter" arcade games and live paintball/LaserQuest games. It would also be interesting if players could be represented to other participants using their own avatars rather than their real selves. (via Haddock)
