- XPilot [iPhone] XPilot for the iPhone is the remake of the original networked multiplayer game for UNIX workstationsÂ 90's game by BjÃ¸rn Stabell and Ken Ronny Schouten from the University of TromsÃ¸, Bert Gijsbers from the University of Amsterdam, and Dick Balaska from BuckoSoft.COM. Whilst XPilot never quite died; you can apparently still find a dedicated few still firing up their cloaking devices and remotely detonating mines with an evil chuckle, 7b5 Labs, XPilot enthusiasts since the beginning, have resurrected this nearly-forgotten classic and brought it to the iPhone. In a nutshell, XPilot is a 2-DÂ multiplayer Asteroids-likeÂ computer game,Â open source, currently running on most platforms and is an example of earlyÂ third-person shooters before being steamrolled by Doom, Starcraft, and the Web. WhereasÂ the original XPilot client relied heavily on the keyboard for all input (no mouse control at that time), XPilot for the iPhone uses touch control to steer and control thrust. The main blaster is activated by a button in the corner of the screen. Additional weapons and items are used by opening overlayed menus (sort of like the iPhone keyboard) with buttons for each item, and the menus may be closed to not distract from normal gameplay. Controls are a little hard to get used to but only after few minutes of play you will find yourself a lot more conformable navigating the ship. Because of the client/server architecture, a data connection is required for play. The XPilot iPhone App draws significantly from the original XPilot project and the laterÂ XPilot NG branch. These projects are available as open source, as is the XPilot iPhone App. You canÂ clone the repository hosted atÂ http://7b5labs.com/xpilot.git Features: - Pilot your ship through a world based on uniquely authentic 2D spaceflight physics: thrust, momentum, and acceleration are as vital to your survival as lasers and cloaking devices. - Navigate through an array of wild and devious spacescapes and arenas teeming with gravity wells, transporters, and automated cannons. - Collect items to build up your ship's capabilities. - Fire heat-seeking missiles, switch on tractor beams at just the right moment to throw your competitors off their game, remotely detonate proximity mines. - Team up to steal your opponents' treasure or simply indulge in random acts of chaos. XPilot is a must for anyone interested in retro gaming. Visually, the game is wonderful, controls need a little getting used to but I haven't had a chance to fully explore the game yet. From having spent 10 minutes with it, I can see myself spending quite a few more hours. If you are a fan, you have probably already downloaded it. If uncertain, you can get a lot more information about the game and history behind it on 7b5 Labs's website. About 7b5labs 7b5 Labs was created in 2009 by Sean Cier and Michael Sherman. Sean and Michael each have over 15 years of professional software development experience, including computer graphics software development and work with UNIX, Linux, Windows, and OS X systems. read more..

- Zoetrope [iPhone] Finally after 4 weeks in review, Memo Akten's latest iPhone app 'Zoetrope' is now available in the AppStore. Inspired and named after one of the earliest devices that created the illusion of animation via cycling through a series of still images, Memo's latest creation allows you to experience this historic device on your iPhone or iPod Touch. Zoetrope consists of a cylinder with slits cut vertically in the sides. Beneath the slits on the inner surface of the cylinder is a band which has either individual frames from a video/film or images from a set of sequenced drawings or photographs. As the cylinder spins the user looks through the slits at the pictures on the opposite side of the cylinder's interior. The scanning of the slits keeps the pictures from simply blurring together so that the user sees a rapid succession of images producing the illusion of motion, the equivalent of a motion picture. wikipedia Particularly special is the physical and analogue nature of the original device now turned digital on the iPhone. Where you may not expect the same effect to take place (I was suspicious) it is actually very impressive. Zoetrope.app also reacts to the accelerometer data, ie the way you tilt your iphone to show you the top side of the historical device. Supplied with the app are three classic image sequences from the master of motion himself, Eadward Muybridge. You can create your own animations with your own images or browse and download other peoples animations. You spin the cylinder by swiping a finger across the screen, the faster you swipe the faster the cylinder spins creating an illusion of animation. Whilst this may not be the most useful app on you iPhone (CAN don't do useful often =]), it is definitely a tribute to individuals who inspired the moving image we know today. Just for that alone, you should definitely have it on your iPhone. made with openFrameworks See also at the bottom the 12-foot-tall zoetrope installed during this years London Fashion week to showcase Temperley London’s Spring 2010 collection.

- Hard-Wired Devices [Objects, Games] Created by Roger Ibars (2002–2011), Hard-wired devices combines game controllers and alarm clocks. Daniel puts it beautifully "frees the controller from it’s console and lets the beauty of it’s interface to sing". Each item includes manufacturer, designer, serial number, newly mapped control details and much more.. rogeribars.com In July 2003 Roger Ibars graduated with a Master in Interaction Design from the Royal College of Art in London. Here he initiates a research interest in how objects would be loosing interest in interacting with the users. He illustrated this research in the book "Self-made objects", a collection of daily objects that experience their functions. These objects investigate a new area for interaction design where things take control of their functions and therefore use […]
