YouTube launched its official game streaming service today, aptly named YouTube Gaming. While it's a solid service with lots of people using it, we have some ideas about how it might actually help Twitch. Whoever ends up winning this battle, we're thrilled there's finally some major competition in the livestreaming space.
Ubisoft recently announced it would invest in an interesting VR prototype: MM-Company's MMOne chair tilts and rotates heavily and touts compatibility with Oculus Rift, making it a prime candidate for arcades and other large venues. The MMOne will also feature heavily at Paris Games Week, where the public will have the opportunity to try it out.
Lastly, Japanese tech art design studio teamLab opened a beautiful exhibit in Tokyo called "Crystal Universe" featuring 60,000 hanging LED lights that simulate an infinite view of twinkling stars. It's also interactive, with a smartphone app that lets visitors "create" new stars, nebulae, and planets. You won't mind if we spend the rest of the day wishing we could go to Japan and check this out before it closes, right?
