Sifteo is This New Mindblowing Gaming Platform
Look, this Sifteo thing is so esoteric to how we normally play games that I’m not entirely sure how to describe it. You’ve got three 1.5″ blocks with TV screens on them and you play games and yeah I give up. You’ll need to just watch this video for true understanding or else you’ll get a headache trying to figure this out.
Gah, that seems really cool. The story goes that some MIT kids — or, rather, people who once were MIT kids — wanted to make a new system for gaming that melded video games with the tangibility of board games. And this is what they came up with. Man.
They’ve got an “Early Access” thing going where you get three cubes for $99 (regular price will be $149), but it’s full up for now.You can sign up for a mailing list, though, and you might be able to get in on it once they make some more of these things. Head over to sifteo.com for more detailed specs on this thing.
