Dumb Ways to Die… while playing GTA V

I know a few people who got a little excited over the brilliant Dumb Ways to Die viral by the Metro and McCann Melbourne…
but I also know a  lot more people who became erratically ecstatic over the release of GTA V.

So I would hope this should cause a little pant wetting:

Dumb Ways to Die in GTA V (Parody)

Check out the rest of Brysi‘s videos.
There’s a lot more satirical fun to be had.

Mario: Ping Pong Percussion

Just like the two musically paddled people in this video, I just had to share it with the wider world.

FINISH HIM!!

If you were to combine a fuck bucket of things I love, from digital interactivity to 90’s beat ’em ups… you’d probably end up with this:

Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter – In real life:

Created by the awesome GakAttack, the perfect blend of special effects and martial arts, alongside .Start, the gamer specific entertainment channel… This is one of the best portrayals of real life Street Kombat (see what I did there) I have ever seen!

Congratulations boys, that was Perfect! (Or should I say Flawless?)

Keep an eye on this incredible team, they plan to make an entire series dedicated to Fan Fights. If your appetite is not whet enough yet, check out this super-human showdown:

Batman vs Captain America – Ultimate Fan Fight:

Innovative and interactive without the need for an Arduino… Genius!

MAN-EATER

Here’s what the creator – @Disselkoen – has to say about it:

For four years, each day I took the same tram to art academy. Why would you then look out the window with curiosity when there is no reason to expect anything new. I decided to change the daily journey for my fellow passengers and myself. I wouldn’t move the tramway track, but maybe I could add something. Make something so that what already exists would look very different now.

Man-eater is part of my graduation project “Remake Reality” for the Royal Academy of Art, The Netherlands.

iPad Joystick!

Apologies for a quick post, I am currently holidaying in Spain and there is a small group of old people that are just  about to have their ace handed to them on the tennis court (see what I did there?).

Anyway, look… You can get a joystick for your iPad.

Oh yes, I’ve decided to refer to any device supporting such awesome retro mechanics as a JiPad, it would have been Joypad but they already exist.

So here is more information and links to purchase from ThinkGeek.

Give your stubby digits a bionic upgrade

Bring your tablet-based gaming to the next level with the JOYSTICK-IT Tablet Arcade Stick. The JOYSTICK-IT gives you a real physical joystick for increased precision with touchscreen based games. Simply press down to attach the JOYSTICK-IT to your tablet based computer’s screen for improved gaming. No wires or batteries needed.

The JOYSTICK-IT works with thousands of different game apps. Any game that has an on-screen control pad of some kind is perfect for the JOYSTICK-IT. Simply run your game of choice, place the JOYSTICK-IT over the on-screen control pad and push down. The JOYSTICK-IT sticks to the glass of your display and is ready for action. The lightweight solid milled-aluminum construction of the JOYSTICK-IT adds more precise movement and faster response time for enhanced playability. When you’re done, simply pull-up on the JOYSTICK-IT to remove from the screen.

    

 

Hardware Compatibility

Game Compatibility
