I May Enroll In the University Of Illinois Just To Play This

I so need this game and the screen. No, really, you don’t understand… I NEED IT!! Need… Neeeed…. I mean, who’s ass do I have to shove my nose up in order to get access to that screen?

BTW, don’t you love how they brought a girl in to play for the video? As if that would ever happen – a girl, playing a Star Wars game??

It’s been developed by Arthur Nishimoto, a student at the Electronic Visualization Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Initially designed in 2009 as a simple space strategy game, it soon evolved into a multiplayer project for the TacTile touch-screen display. Which, thanks to the fact it’s not a commercial product, could use Star Wars ships and sound effects.

Steve And Bill – The Hofstadter Theory

Computer World ran this 1991 photo of Apple’s Steve Jobs and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates. Ultra-nerdy fanboy appreciation aside, am I the only one who thinks Steve Jobs looks uncannily like Big Bang Theory‘s Leonard Hofstadter.
