Foam Fighters and AR Nostalgia

This is not very educational.
I have just been trying out Foam Fighters an augmented reality style app / toy for IPad and iPhone/ IPod.
I have enjoyed piloting my plane through difficult skies and avoiding attack. Apps like these that need something physical attached to the device are slowly increasing. I do hope we see more inventive and imaginative applications for this augmented reality style technology when it comes to tablets and IOS.

Playing this game tonight took me back a few years to the excitement we had in my early days of 2SIMPLE, when chief genius Max would emerge from his tool shed like office with another chunk of code. He shows his forays into augmented reality in his video appearance at Teachmeet East London below.
