NASA and gaming? What?

IMG_2086

I went to a lot of game sessions and talks at SXSW, but one of my favourites by far was the NASA one. Before I went to SXSW I had no clue just how active NASA are outside of the ‘space’ business.

I attended a session about the importance of games and game technology and how it will play for the future of NASA. This talk really makes me want to create and be a part of something revolutionary. NASA showed a bit of tech that tracks your hands and allows you to control a robot with even the slightest twitch of your finger with ease and this is all based on games. The power of gaming is outstanding. Gaming is not a distraction and a waste of time, it is concentration at its finest!
