Two very cool projects at this weekend’s Ultrasound festival: Kick-Ass Kung-Fu (by Animaatiokone) and Tiletoy (by Tuomo Tammenpää and Daniel Blackburn). I walked away a convert. Tangibility is so the future of electronic gaming.

Hi, Jyri. My name is York Date, and I am a Japanese undergraduate student. I am commenting for the first time.
Kick-Ass Kung-Fu makes me remember my childhood. I used to play foot-operated action game, which is first of the kind “sensory video game machines” as far as I know in Japan.

Hi York, that game sounds interesting. Do you know what it was called?

Yes, it was called Family Trainer!

Because I regret my inability to send a trackback ping, I hasten to add that Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) was trendy a short time ago in Japan. It is also a virtual game at the computer game amusement center.
