Old school meets new school

Missile Command adapted to a wall-sized multitouch: this is a classic video game reborn with new technology. Of course, the computer graphics of the demo directly mirror the original graphics and haven’t been upgraded to the whiz-bang (sorry, bad pun) of contemporary computer graphics.

It’s interesting to see one of the cultural influences of that era compared to today: the nuclear threat is less about ICBMs and more about “rogue states”.
