Submission + - DanKam: Augmented Reality For The Color Blind (

Effugas writes: Can your phone help you see? If you're part of the 10% of the population that's color blind, perhaps. DanKam is an augmented reality application that autocorrects visuals such that the color blind can better see colors, and the differences between colors. It's available for iPhone and Android. DanKam comes from Dan Kaminsky, best known otherwise for his work on DNS.

Submission + - "Digital: A Love Story" Game Set Amidst 1988 BBSs (

Effugas writes: Now here's something special. Independent game designer Christine Love just released "Digital: A Love Story", which unveils a shockingly well written romance/mystery inside a simulacrum of an Amiga desktop, circa 1988, with the player dialing and hacking into ANSI-art equipped BBS's (both local and long distance) that, in some cases, may very well be FIDONET nodes. This is awesome. Also awesome is that the game is fully Creative Commons licensed, and is available freely for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Check it out!
