HP Getting into Handheld Gaming
I'm not affiliated with HP, but I do like toys. There. I said it. A new player on the handheld block may be quite refreshing: hopefully a HP machine won't have the proprietary limitations of the PSP...
Word has it that HP Labs is working on a gaming platform dubbed Mscape, which would rely on GPS sensors to allow for location-aware adventure games.
So for example, let's say you're playing a game and happen to walk by a landmark or a city park. Small sensors would trigger an action in the game, like maybe a hidden level or boss.
I hate it when I'm about to meet some friends near Hyde Park and I have to confront a boss, and then I'm late and my friends don't believe me.
