A Urine Powered Generator. An amazing accomplishment by four brilliant girls. The girls are are Duro-Aina Adebola (14), Akindele Abiola (14), Faleke Oluwatoyin (14) and Bello Eniola (15).
 
 
  • 1 Liter of urine gives you 6 hours of electricity.

  • The system works like this:

    • Urine is put into an electrolytic cell, which separates out the hydrogen.
    • The hydrogen goes into a water filter for purification, which then gets pushed into the gas cylinder.
    • The gas cylinder pushes hydrogen into a cylinder of liquid borax, which is used to remove the moisture from the hydrogen gas.
    • This purified hydrogen gas is pushed into the generator.

This is amazing. Give them a billion dollars right now. They may have just saved the planet. 

Also, the technology involved in this generator can be produced really cheaply, and none of the components are patented. That removes major obstacles to production and deployment, and I’m certain that these girls were very conscious of that during development.

SightLine is an adventure puzzle game which uses line of sight as a core gameplay mechanic, with items and scenery dramatically changing when you’re not looking.  An all-knowing narrator helps guide you through the disorientating, somewhat creepy game, with visual trickery reminiscent of that seen in Antichamber.

There is a Prototype and a Playground available to download, the playground is a small test arena, while the Prototype has more intricate puzzle elements and takes you through a variety of destinations, such as a floating mountain town, a forest or just nothingness.  One thing is prevalent throughout both builds though, whether you’re in a dangerous situation or not, it can all change depending on where you look and your perspective of it.

SightLine is a thoroughly disorientating, perplexing, wonderful experience that full of surprises and clever touches.  Also, if you’re lucky enough to have an Oculus Rift it’s a must-play (though it’s still works well on a normal screen).

This might be really stupid but

what about having code that transforms the Debug-based Haskell code into Debugless Haskell code? Alternatively, make a Monad that takes a type and a monad as arguments and can toggle whether…

You know there’s Debug.Trace right?

We see a lot of interesting games at Alpha Beta Gamer, but Gorogoa is 15 minutes of the most unique, innovative and intelligent gameplay we’ve experienced this year.

Gameplay is spilt across four beautifully illustrated and animated panels that helped win it the IGF Excellence in Visual Arts Award.  These four panels can be moved around, zoomed in and out of and placed on top of each other to solve puzzles, allowing your character to continue his journey through the beautifully crafted world.  As you progress, the panels interact with each other in a variety of surprising and delightful ways, allowing for plenty of ‘wow that’s clever’ moments.

Gorogoa is targeted for release late in 2014 for PC & Mac, then subsequently mobile platforms.  With it’s beautiful animation (the GIFs above don’t do it justice), intelligent design and unique gameplay it’s bound to win more awards when it’s released.  Personally, it’s already my GOTY.  Highly Recommended.
