Apple Computer co-founder Steve Wozniak has joined the advisory board of a small software upstart, Eye Games. Wozniak, an entrepreneur and founder of wireless technology company Wheels of Zeus, and Stuart Moulder, former general manager of Microsoft's gaming business, joined the advisory board this week, according to Eye Games CEO Gina Smith.
The Orinda, Calif.-based company, which debuted at E3 in May, sells software with a companion Webcam for enhancing PC games. In the model of Sony's Eye Toy for the PlayStation, Eye Games lets players cast their own image into a PC computer game and manipulate play with their own movements. Eye Games sells a preview version of its software for $19.95; and it plans to release a product in retail outlets over Christmas with a major partner that's yet to be named, according to Smith.
