Hey! Look! The guy on the other side of the street looks like he is playing real world Pacman.

Researchers in Singapore are developing a Pacman game that is augmented onto the real world (see photo on the left by BBC). The players are tracked via GPS and a central computer keeps track of the game - the future will be beautiful.
The human Pacman is on display at the Wired Nextfest 2005 in Chicago in a couple of weeks. I was at the Nextfest 2004 and it was really a great event.
