…It’s TGI Friday: Sway?


Illusion Labs and ReadyAimFire have teamed up to create the iPhone game Sway, a ‘state-of-the-art game that will blow your fuzzy socks off!’

The goal is to swing through beautiful worlds using just finger gestures as you help Lizzie, Ninja Man, Stitches, Box Boy and others reach the goal.

Sway is definitely pushing the edge of what iPhone gaming is all about, and uses multi-touch to its fullest potential, so check it out and give it a try:


…NVIDIA wants to know what’s the State of the Art?

State Of The Art

NVIDIA has teamed up with NOTCOT, Core77 and Behance to bring you the ‘State Of The Art’ contest, and prizes include the kick-ass NVIDIA Quadro CX graphics card along with a copy of Adobe’s CS4 Master Collection.

The contest is broken down into three mini-contests, so you have a few different chances to submit, and the first on comes from Core77, and it’s called ‘Visualize the Screens of the Future’.

If you’ve got artistic talent and are looking for a new way to express it (and potentially win some prizes) then be sure to check out the contests and show off what you’ve got!

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Lotus Concept Ice Vehicle?

Lotus Concept Ice Vehicle

The Moon-Regan Trans Antarctic Expedition plans to cross the icy continent using state-of-the-art bio-fuelled vehicles and cutting-edge communications equipment to raise awareness of how Antarctica’s fate affects the whole environment.

One of those bio-fuelled vehicles is this Lotus Concept Ice Vehicle, or CIV, which will act as a pilot for the two heavier Science Support Vehicles that will also be making the journey.

With a bio-fueled, supercharged BMW 1150 engine driving the propeller to a top speed of 84 mph, trike skids that bring the overall size to a rather svelte 4.5 meters long and 4.5 meters wide, as well as independent suspension all around, it’s got plenty of go to get them there. Plus, with ice penetrating radar to detect any crevasses, a spiked foot for emergency stops on the edge of any detected crevasse, and weight so low (360kg) that a single person can pull it across the ice, it’s got plenty to get them back as well.

Now if only they rented this thing out at the local skating rink…
