I know it’s hard to ignore the terrible accent and stereotype of us brits but the video below by Qualcomm demoing proximity-based peer-to-peer gaming is pretty cool.
(If you’re using the inspectagadget app then you might need to hit the web link if you can’t see the vid)
It shows three people playing a game, the same game simultaneously against eachother. One uses a Dell Latitude laptop and wifi, another using the Nokia N900 over wifi too and finally a Nexus One over bluetooth.
The game they play is pretty basic but you the fact that it’s played across different devices and using bluetooth and wifi without lag makes this a tantilising prospect.
Yes it’s difficult to stay cam watching ‘Jack’ from ‘Westchester’ who likes ‘Rugby, Curry and tiny tiny European underpants’ but try to ignore their marketing teams complete stupidity and see what the product can actually do.
Why did they even feel the need to tell us where they’re from and what they like anyway?!?! What was the point of that, seriously? Just tell us their names and what they’re using, don’t try to be funny by stereotyping etc. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10… Ok I’m calm, watch the vid.
