Todd Martens of the LA Times talks to Imagineer Lanny Smoot about the recently unveiled “HoloTile Floor” project — an omnidirectional floor that allows multiple users to walk infinitely — and its relationship to Star Trek. In particular, Smoot calls out being inspired by the character of officer Uhura as a kid and wanting to make a real-life “Holodeck.”

Not only is Dropout’s Game Changer show funny but their “Escape the Greenroom” is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a while. Plus, the escape room the contestants find themselves in was designed by none other than Tommy Honton of Stash House. Highly recommended. https://www.dropout.tv/videos/escape-the-greenroom

@BaldSavant We’ve been working our way through the whole series and that’s definitely top five, at least.

@BaldSavant My husband and I were debating the First Episode You Should Watch, the Best Episode, and our Favorite Episode.

I think the first one you should watch should be "Yes Or No" but the best one is probably "Do I Hear $1" or "Sam Says" and my favorite is "Don't Cry."

Repost from last year but also a great gift for the right person:

My friend David Ruzicka recommended "2120" by recently and I couldn’t stop reading/playing it.

https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/2120-george-wylesol/1140402430

"2120" is a graphic novel set up like a book / / old school PC .

In the same vein as Severance, Stanley Parable, or House of Leaves, nothing is as it first seems. "2120" is filled with suspense, horror, and corporate dread, which works well with Wylesol’s instruction manual-esque drawing style.

“Becoming literate in games means understanding the language of experience, the power of systems, and knowing how to step back and see the big picture.

“Play is a deep breath in and a slow release out. It is what gives us the space to recognize ourselves inside the tumult of the machine — and the clarity to recognize everyone else too.

“Play is why we’re here.”

It has been really exciting to finally share Puzzmo with the world! There's so much careful design inside it that I felt would be difficult to understand at the outset, so as part of this sharing process, I wrote a manifesto —

Some days you're really productive
Other days you just have Tom Cardy's "Perception Check" running through your head, over and over
That's normal, right?

Musk is cratering twitter so fast and deliberately now I’m wondering if it’s all some sort of secret tax dodge. Like maybe his accountant said if he very publicly destroyed ~$10B of his own money while raising the rest, he could avoid taxes on his remaining $100B stash forever.
