HP + VooDoo PC
Since HP acquired Voodoo PC, little has been known about their plans. On December 4th, however, a new video clip showed kids playing virtual scavenger hunt games on portable gaming machines. The difference between these games and others that current video games offer, is that the children playing the games are running in alley ways collecting real clues to solve their puzzles.
An open-source platform called Media-Scape allows HP to do this. With the help of Voodoo, HP is able to mesh the real and virtual world. Few trials have already taken place with activities for children to reinact animals or play in different areas of a tower. As technology continues to develop and advance, HP will enjoy experimenting with wireless to take the next step in games such as these.
