So much for talking the holiday week off. ICT’s Evan Suma has been busy fielding calls and emails about his new FAAST toolkit which facilitates integration of full-body control with games and VR applications. It might have something to do with the fact that Suma chose the hugely popular World of Warcraft to demonstrate how his program, which can be used to control off-the-shelf video games, works. His video has gotten over one million YouTube hits and led to countess online mentions, including WiredEngadgetThe Wall Street JournalThe Seattle PIUSA TodayMSNBCFast CompanyKotakuLalawag and Yahoo. Suma and his collaborators at ICT see this as opening up huge possibilities in rehab, exercise and play. Stay tuned, this one is quite literally a game changer.
