It's a surprisingly deep bartending simulator -- not only do you have to get everybody's drink right, but the glass has a maximum fill limit, meaning you can't just dump ingredients into an invisible glass. You have to get the amounts just right.

Technically, you're following the instructions of these adorable little robots -- which can't speak on their own. They can interpret a "skin-to-skin bot communication protocol" if you're holding them, however.

Instead, players take turns drawing lines of potential paths, hopefully guiding the robot to the black area in the center. The first player to get there wins.

The little teeth on the front can tell the difference between an area with or without a drawn line -- but the robot still follows at its own pace.

The creator of the Living Orb calls it a "tangible game console." Basically, it's a ball with 162 LEDs on it designed to spark ideas for games that wouldn't work on existing devices. The Orb's maze game, for instance, turns one light red at the top of the orb and draws a maze using the leftover lights -- players have to rotate the ball to move the red light through the maze. It's a fully three-dimensional gaming console... but the graphics aren't much to look at.

Yes, that is a bicycle pump in an LED-illuminated glass jar! It's also how you play the platformer on the screen above it.

Pumping air or twisting the handle of the pump will let you move the frog in the game -- inflating it to jump and bounce around obstacles.

Wind Golf

Wind Golf is basically just minigolf -- but without a club. Instead, players blow into one of two pipes to create gusts that push the ball forward to the left or right, and rotate the entire console to choose the direction. 

You look a little silly playing it, but it's surprisingly fun.
