632596361867500000 Wooden Labyrinth game   Tablet PC hack... Casey rules…a simulation of the old Wooden Labyrinth game. the cool part is that its controlled by a web cam attached to a slate Tablet PC. so you physically have to tilt the Tablet PC which tilts the game board and makes the marble roll accordingly. you can also control it with a web cam attached to a desktop computer by holding the camera and tilting the camera yourself (else you can just use a mouse). this is actually the first game i’ve ever written, and its also the first time i’ve written a Managed Direct3D application from scratch. oh yeah, the binaries can be downloaded … and i’ll put the code up within a couple days (need to clean it up). finally, there are also some videos of it in usage Link.
