No, it’s not the Nintendo DS in arcade form, it’s a touch panel display that can be operated by touching either side of the panel. It’s almost two-player Nintendo DS action except it has lame graphics and a wall separating the players. That’s alright, Tic-Tac-Toe is still a kick ass game.
Teraokaseiko Co Ltd. displayed this technology at the Sign & Display Show at Tokyo Big Sight. With its capabilities of detecting pinching, pushing and sliding finger movements, the possibilities of gameplay are extensive. That is, if you can get around the 256 × 120 resolution and the orange monochrome display. Imagine if they set these up in bars. You could be playing Tic-Tac-Toe with a complete stranger who ends up becoming the love of your life.
It doesn’t look that great now, but I definitely see a lot of potential!
