After Kickstarting $2.5M In 2 Days, Can OUYA Disrupt Gaming?

After Kickstarting $2.5M In 2 Days, Can OUYA Disrupt Gaming? | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
Why can’t I play my mobile games on my television? It’s a simple problem with a million solutions, none of which have taken over the world just yet. Will my phone Wi-Fi stream games to my TV, or will my TV just have an app store? 

 

OUYA is a simple solution. It’s a $100 box that’s about the size of a Rubik’s Cube. It’s fit with a powerful smartphone chipset. And it can play pretty much any Android game or other app on your TV through a console-quality controller that features a d-pad, triggers, buttons and even a touchpad. Hackers are free to open it with a normal screwdriver. And every game it runs will be free-to-play. Their proprietary Android app store will only allow developers to charge for components like extra content packs. Games always download at no cost whatsoever....

'Two Frenchies' Love Detroit So Much They Make A Movie About It

 

After months of giving peeks into their process on their blog, filmmakers Nora Mandray and Hélène Bienvenu have revealed screenshots of interactive documentary "Detroit Je T'aime," as well as a request for funding help.

 

On their Kickstarter, the two filmmakers from France who have been living in the city for a year explain the concept of the movie. It will be "broadcast" online with several different short films exploring DIY (Do It Yourself) projects in Detroit and a toolkit for watchers to create their own.

 

"For us, Detroit is a city of change makers. Our three protagonists are using the crisis as an opportunity to redefine our values," they say in their Kickstarter video. "'Detroit Je T'ame' is about creating an immersive experience that inspires you to connect outside of the Internet."
