Future Of Cloud Gaming Is Almost Upon Us | Contests and Games Revolution | Scoop.it
Virtual Reality - So which technology do we look to, which will allow us this needed increase in reactive response? Two words: virtual reality.

Via Peter Azzopardi
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

How can we adapt "cloud gamiing" to business? Can we use the cloud to store WHO and WHERE information to "match the hatch" of where you are and what you are doing and then make a game out of all of it?

Given that true virtual reality hardware is pretty much non-existent at this point, current games are extremely limited.

Justin Perkins's curator insight, June 17, 2014 5:18 AM

VR is coming, prepare yourselves... FOR THE FUTURE.

Gaming For Social Good & Cure Cancer Starter

If you don't think my eyes got wide and my breath caught in my throat a little when I saw this post about how Zynga supports social good via game play you don't know me and my Cure Cancer Starter project, our crowdfunding platform for cancer research (http://www.curecancerstarter.org). . 


It may seem strange to think of making curing cancer a game, but not to me (a cancer survivor). I don't care WHAT helps as long as engagement, awareness and donations all go UP. 

Over the weekend I scooped a piece from Dan Pallotta about how we think about charity ALL WRONG. One way that is wrong is charity is often seen as boring requirement instead of exciting FUN. As an Internet marketer I would rather sell "exciting fun" any day since that SCALES. Boring requirement doesn't scale. 
 

Can Zynga help cure cancer? You bet. Am I going to be calling on Zynga to help do jus that? You bet.

Inside Kabam: Building Berlin and buying British businesses
Mobile Entertainment
Building a team with its own dedicated budget to look at not just mobile media, but integrated media, such as television.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Cool interview with Kabam's President Andrew Sheppard. Just once I want to be able to say this:

"Yeah, our revenues rose 100 per cent in 2013 to almost double our forecast for the year.

We ended 2013 with a ton of great momentum. Internally, there's a general excitement and enthusiasm about where we're going, how we're doing it and increasingly why we're doing it  –  people are pretty fired up.

The core of Kabam is a bunch of people who love hardcore games, that are excited about free-to-play, and it's a company that takes its time to think through, plan and attack big market opportunities, whether that's moving to Facebook with a core game, moving to mobile or expanding into Berlin."

Amazing.
