Solu: A flawed attempt to reinvent the PC

Because for Solu to succeed, Lawson and his team need to convince people to ditch an operating system they’re used to, on hardware they trust, and instead go for a mobile device that does less than the mobile you currently have in your pocket. The software subscription service is nice, but there’s no word on whether major developers actually want to do business on Solu’s terms.

Harsh, but I’m inclined to agree. I just don’t see a situation in which I’d prefer this over a phone/tablet/laptop.

Night Trap making a return on Kickstarter

The iconic full-motion-video game, placing YOU in the leading role of a horror movie, is set to make its return in a new hi-def format!

The original game, first released on Sega CD / Mega CD, has reached somewhat of a cult status. $330,000 might be hard to reach, though.

Pixel Press Kickstarter

Pixel Press is an iOS & Android app that lets you draw your own video game (no code required!) and share it with others.

Print the PDF, draw a level, take a photo of it with your iOS or Android device and—presumably with the help of some OCR—the level can be tested, played and shared with others.

I love this kind of stuff, marrying software with tangible objects.
