DEFCON Used in Multitouch Demo

watch the video, about 1:40 in

Popular Mechanics is running an article about Microsoft's (yeah, yeah, boo, hiss) new multitouch system. The article itself is actually kind of interesting, but the real fun comes from the video. There is a very short clip of DEFCON in there, at about the 1:40 mark. I just thought y'all might get a kick out of that.


Wasn't much to look at, but it sure did look cool. I still can't wait to play DEFCON on a reeeeeeeeeeely big screen.

That's a little interesting.

You see, I've got this nice big HDTV too, but there's one small annoying detail: I don't have a graphics card on this macbook, so I can't drive the screen adequately. Add that to the fact that I can't play DEFCON fullscreen on the TV (That requires mirroring my display, but my native resolution is too low to fill the screen properly) and you can see that I'm in quite a pickle. Hmm... There's a feature request...

But... HDTVs aren't really all that high resolution.

What, 1920x1080 isn't enough for you, mrxak?

nfreader : Hmm, I'm using a MacBook as well and I run Defcon just fine.

Hey, that's pretty darn cool... Multitouch that is. ducks
