Creative Inventions and Robotics Baseball Robots Next Generation Computer Game
We imagine that the next generation of computer games will have a new dimension … Exotic, real world, robotic characters that jump right off the screen onto a real playing field. The entire environment will be computer controlled. Michael, Seth and John
Some people take life soooooooooooo seriously that they never stop to play. All work and no play … how boooring! Michael, Seth and John Design and build a game that makes people want to play!
