A new Museum just opened its doors in Berlin’s Karl-Marx-Allee, and it’s not one of those boring historical ones, the Computerspielemuseum or Computer Games Museum Berlin. Well, it’s about the history of gaming and it might be boring if you are not interested in Video Games… but if you are, it is really interesting and informative.
Our museum, which was opened in Berlin in 1997, was the world’s first permanent exhibition devoted to digital interactive entertainment culture. Since then, we have documented the development of the medium at over 30 national and international events.
You are invited on an entertaining expedition to meet the game players of the 21st century. Numerous rare original exhibits, playable classic games and assorted media productions help you exploring the world of “Homo Ludens Digitalis”.
Anyway, if you have a liking in video games and want to know more about the creation of the Comodore64 and the invention of Apple’s first personal computer, you should pay it a visit.
The topic of this years IFA (International Electronics Fair) was obviously 3D. 3D with glasses, 3D without glasses, 3D on your TV, your gaming console and your cinema screen.
You might say, 3D isn’t even new, it’s at least 1 year old, because Avatar was shown in 3D in 2009. But now, it has moved from the big screen to your TV and in some rare cases, even without wearing glasses.
And because everyone looks funny wearing these specs, let me show you some pictures so you can familiarize with it, because you will see them a lot more in the future, maybe.
