Episode 50 of our podcast Rated NA will be going live tomorrow afternoon, but we felt obligated to share these incredible responses to this weeks question: “What video game franchise, film, or television series will be viewed as art in 100 years and why?” On top of getting a ton of stellar responses from our friends and readers, we were also lucky enough to hear back from a number of the people that made the past 15 months at Nerd Appropriate so awesome. One of the best things about being a part of this site, is getting to talk with such incredibly creative people about the things we love, and for that we’re immensely grateful. Take a look at what some of our friends in the industry had to say about the future.
Say what you will about Microsoft’s Kinect Peripheral, having sold 8 million units since launch it’s a colossal hit. I got one for my wife this holiday, and she’s been dancing up a storm and loving the hell out of it. My only major complaint thus far is the space requirement. We have around 7 feet between our couch and the Kinect sensor (although the sensor claims you only need 6 feet ) and were having some issues. We ended up having to mount a shelf behind the television specifically for the Kinect, and now it works fine. A lot of people are not going to have 8 feet to play with by the T.V..
And here is the next big thing from CES: Avatar Kinect
The most innovative things from Kinect haven’t come from Microsoft, but hackers who are figuring out insane ways to push the hardware to new levels. Check these out!
