The interactive installation „Game Milestones“ is located in the new permanent exhibition of the Computer Game Museum Berlin. Created by The Product a berlin-based spatial and media-related design practice, the installation includes a wall of cubes (refereed to as ‘pixels’) displaying the most influential computer games in history. The user can access more detailed information and an in-game video by steering a light cursor towards the pixel, using a joystick. The information and video are then displayed on two monitors which are integrated in the exhibition architecture designed by Schiel Projektgesellschaft.
The glowing cursor, the archetypical selection tool, as a manifestation of the digital in the physical world is a commentary on the current trend to augmented reality, a technique which is more and more being used also in mobile gaming.
