arduino powered typewriter for zork

31 Oct

Hell yes.

It seems that there arnt lots of projects around recently that are about interactive fiction, well at least ones that arnt just emulators or very bad stories.

I just found this, the automatypewriter.

This is so cool. It plays the classic interactive fiction game Zork. The typewriter types out the computer part or story for you and then detects what you type as a response. Wow. I really like the fact that it types for you, its quite ghostly in a way.

Very clever way of mixing an old technology with an old computer game. Really this is how they should all be played.
