    that’s cool… is any information available about how they determine the hit position of the balls on the screen?

    Probly have a sensor that can tell when the Screen gets pushed in…probly make the command clicck where the ball hit

    I think that they used same technique as in golf-simulators, but in this case game was interesting. :D

    it just uses the same technology as an interactive white board. infact, i wouldnt be suprised if thats what they used. (i teach on an interactive white-board)

    It’s a smartboard i think… cool technique

    This video was released by Visual Sports Systems ( The tracking technology consists of four cameras mounted to the ceiling. The cameras determine the speed, trajectory and location of any passing object. You can see them in the video, they are the red lights on top right corner of the screen. Visual Sports has traditionally focused on the commercial simulator market but we are now expanding to the in-home market. We found the I Hate Clowns game online and saw the potential for integrating it with our tracking technology. We are looking to build a library of mini-games like I Hate Clowns that appeal to the in-home market. If anyone is interested in developing or modifying an existing game that integrates our tracking system please email me at [email protected].

    In fact it is a golf-simulator with a different program in it, you can see he trow golf balls. I work in a Golftown and I played a similar game but it was more like a brick game with no physic.. Anyway that one is nice!

    “And keep an eye on the page! The reviewers have been doing a great job, and there are a number of new reviews to post in the next week.”

    Umm… are ya’ll alive?

    You know, just checking. Hope we get some reviews soon!

    It’s been almost two months, since the last review :(

  15. red_forman said,

    …and I’m checking the site a couple of times a day. Every day.

    Same :( need physic sandboxes and so on.

    By the way have you guys seen Digital Molecular Matter or the Euphoria Engine? thats some sweet stuff (I really like the first one).

    I am already imagining a new Half Life game with a brand new Garrysmod where every piece of junk is fully destructable, bendable, breakable whatever.

    Still…any new physic demos or sandboxes for us? ._.

    I was hoping that they could come out with a review for Cortex Command.

    It did just finally come out.

    Zzz… Oh well, at least Toribash is on the front page. :P

    I think the site’s dead.

    Honestly, there’s been no updates for ages, I’ve not seen any sign of these so called new reviewers he asked for some time ago, and there’s been no form of activity at all. I wouldn’t be surprised if the site just died sometime soon.

  24. Matthew said,

    on December 17th, 2007 at 10:15 am

    Oh, I’m still around, just busy.

    For the record, all of the recent reviews were done by the new reviewers. They have a bunch of completed reviews on deck, too; I’ve just been bad about getting them posted.

    The forum has plenty of activity, by the way. It’s a good place to find new games in the meantime. I’ll figure out some way to bring the front page back to life over the holidays.

    Yay I’m excited! :D

    Hey by the way Matthew, did you see any updates for Hammerfall? Because I don’t understand the site even when its translated…
    It’s an awesome game and I can’t wait for the full version to come out . :)
    Thanks in advance. (I don’t wanna [post twice lol)

  26. Mollygoth said,

    on December 18th, 2007 at 3:30 am

    I’m confused.

    You get reviewers in to ease your load… but they can’t put thier reviews on the page themselves? Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of the help?

    And, what recent reviews? there’s been no update for over a month.

  27. Matthew said,

    on December 18th, 2007 at 4:16 pm

    That’s correct, the current pipeline requires FLV encoding and other steps that not all reviewers can do. And, yes, as long as I’m a part of the posting process my schedule can affect the whole thing.

    It’s not like I’m not aware of these things.

    it’s nice to see that the writer cares about the website as much as the comments ^.^

    candyman: I can’t tell if you’re being a bitch or not…

  30. Radken said,

    That’s good, the site isn’t dead. I’ve always looked forwards to the reviews. Thanks a lot!

    Can you estimate when you are ready to post new reviews? I don’t wanna spend the hollidays waiting for new stuff if it’s not coming ;)

    But greatest find on the net for me, i just love physics :) It’d be great if you could review or make an article about diffrent engines like havok and ageia.


  32. candyman said,

    on December 20th, 2007 at 1:55 pm

    that wasn’t very polite >.

  33. vIXEN said,

    on December 20th, 2007 at 6:47 pm

    What was not polite? I joked about hollidays…but it’d be nice to get the reviews asap

  34. candyman said,

    on December 21st, 2007 at 12:31 pm

    na na not u viXEN, matthex…i was being….uh…i cant really describe the word…kinda like a kiddish chibi super deformed kind of acting type of joke…but ur rite, i would like a review >.

  35. IT_Ninja said,

    on December 21st, 2007 at 3:50 pm

    Candyman: you where being a super deformed gigantic sized acting like a prick because your not getting your reviews straight off.

    Contrary to popular belief people who run websites have lives. Please, try not to be a prick again.

    1- maybe if you were paying attention to the comments before mine, you would realize that i am only agreeing to other people
    2- how is “i would like a review” the same thing as “begging” for a review like a prick

  37. IT_Ninja said,

    on December 22nd, 2007 at 3:15 pm

    you did not say I would like a review, you said Quote “it’s nice to see that the writer cares about the website as much as the comments ^.^”

    That was not taken as a simple comment, Maybe you should look up the words Satirical, Caustic, Sarcasm, Satire…those words should further help you understand yourself.

  38. candyman said,

    on December 24th, 2007 at 9:55 am

    maybe u should have posted that a few comments or directly after i said that, or maybe notify that you were talking about that specific comment. and it was not sarcastic, it was generous. it was a compliment. oh sorry; you probably dont know what those words mean.

  39. IT_Ninja said,

    on December 24th, 2007 at 1:19 pm

    haha well, It does not really matter what I percieve it as, You pissed the author of the site off, So in all actuality it only matters what he thought about the comment….which he thought you where being a bitch.

    Flaming wars going on here?

    haha, the christmas spirit :)

    Merry physic x-mas guys and gals

    Hope you guys all have a wonderful time today… And for those of you who doesn’ celebrate Christmas… Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

    *pss* Matthew… Why can’t you just put a Christmas themed physics game up? No need for review just have to say “Merry Christmas everyone!Review coming soon :D”

  42. palludan said,

    on December 25th, 2007 at 11:41 pm

    Yeah and don’t forget the “:D”


  43. mollygoth said,

    What I find intresting is that “the current pipeline involves FLV encoding” whereas the last 6 mainpage entries either use youtube, or dailymotion, which don’t require FLV encoding, just a player embed.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love the site, I just think it’s a shame it’s slowly bleeding out due to lack of updates, be it that there aren’t any reviews coming in, or bieng posted, fact is that if you run a review and news website like this, not updating for over a month are signs of decay.

    Either get a few editors in to post stuff on the main page, or give in, and tell the reviewers not to bother cos it’s not coming out of the pipeline anyway, and put on a frontpage post for people to go to the forums. That’s my suggestion, anyway.

  44. Ziger said,

    on December 26th, 2007 at 3:53 pm

    Yea the forum will keep us alive because we can talk about the games :D. I actually never went to check out the forum… But I will today. mollygoth is right. Advertise about the forum and it kinda counts as an update. Not just that people will go to the forums and start talking about…stuff? :s

  45. candyman said,

    on December 30th, 2007 at 7:43 am

    IT-ninja…wow…maybe if you read his comment more closely, he said “candyman: i cant tell if you are being a bitch OR NOT”
    that was either 1- a joke

    or 2-confused : not knowing if i were being a bitch, which i wasnt
