Augmented Reality (a relatively new technology that blends real-world footage and computer-generated graphics in real time, blurring the line between reality and virtual by enhancing what we perceive) is hitting the world with eye popping WOWs and now a commercial by Doritoes hopping onto the technology. You can make your own awesome effect with the FLARToolkit. This is some awesomeness presented by Jerry Paffendorf.

Null Set Games....Press Start!

Hello and welcome to the Null Set Games Blog! This will be a place for me to write about the latest, coolest and finest info on Alternate Reality Gaming, Pervasive Games and the future of console experiences.

Games have worked their way into the all-day lives of people, from web based experiences to cell phones. Social interaction and location based GPS applications have opened up an extraordinary way to connect, communicate, network and play.

This blog will be an outpouring of ideas and thoughts on these exciting subjects. Hopefully I'll hear the same from you! Together we will find creative new ways to implement these ideas across all platforms- and perhaps into the world around us.
