Narcoa? But I hardly even know'er!

Fantastic interior 360 shot of a rail car.

So I have just learned about the North American Rail Car Operators Association. Check out their site:

This is the coolest hobby I've come across in a long time. Driving little cars on the railroad. It look absolutely delightful, and there is an impressive list of trips from chapters around the country. Upon surfing more, many clubs have their own sites, and there are other great sources such

I'm sorry, but this is just fantastic.

EA's Boom Blox to include Wiimote Headtracking

Louis Castle announced yesterday at GDC2008 that EA's upcoming title "Boom Blox" will ship with an easter egg that allows head-tracking using the Wii remote! Very cool. Here's the Digg article someone created for it - which you should all digg to help drum up some attention and demand for this feature. Reward the developers who decided this was worth including and send a signal to EA and the greater game development community that this is a desired step forward in the evolution of game play technology. The expected release will be in May.

I'm proud. If this pans out, it'll be only 5 months between the initial research prototype to integration into a major product release. Sweet! Happy to see my stuff being used. Humorously, there were 3 other demos on the GDC expo floor showing variations of my head tracking demo. =o)

Just in case you are wondering: No, I don't get any royalties or benefits for the use of this technique in games. Personally, I'm much happier impacting the state of technology on such a large scale in such a short period of time rather than struggling to transform it into personal financial gain. In terms of my original intent behind creating the head-tracking demo, it has already been a wild success beyond my highest expectations.
