On a special Sunday recording of GamesAtWork dot Biz, the Michaels get to talk about various games and technology around transportation. We begin with Michael M’s review of the new Uber Driver recruiting game. Is driver recruitment the only reason it exists? We say no! We spend some time with Hover Bikes and Hover Boards. We look at crowdsourcing your old memories. And finally wrap up with everyone’s favorite section on the games we are playing now.
This week we are especially delighted to have two special guests on the show, Eric Mertens from Galois, Inc. and Aaron Camerata from voidALPHA to share their insight and experience on the Verigames project with DARPA over that past couple of years.
The concept here is pretty simple — can crowdsourced players playing a game perform formal verification / code testing faster and more cost-effectively than testers following the traditional development testing methodologies? And if so, can these same kind of constructs and methods allow for code creation to write new code to solve new problems?
Michael R. and Phaedra are together to talk about the business side of games… How big is the serious games market? How can you make money at it? We also look at Disney’s latest announcement – Playmation. We think about changing our mood with Thync’s new Mood Altering Headset. And, we discuss which of the new Video Game Hall of Fame inductees we like playing the most. So sit back, pour yourself a nice big cup of coffee…and get ready to play some Games At Work!!
