Submission + - Neal Stephenson reinventing computer swordfighting (

toxygen01 writes: "Neal Stephenson, sci-fi writer mostly known for Snowcrash and Cryptonomicon books, takes on revolutionizing virtual sword fighting with help of crowdfunding. Inspired by a little known fictional universe "Mongoliad", an interactive book he is participating on, his company is trying to develop hardware (low-latency motion controller) and software for realistic medieval sword fighting. From what is promised, it will try to be open for other developers by having API and SDK available for further modding."
