T+L made something really, really cool

It’s got all the makings of something great. A new age version of a classic and personal favourite 90’s game, Hungry Hungry Hippos. Played on MS Surface.

It’s really pretty genious if you think about it. What was the sole annoying feature about playing Hungry Hungry Hippos? The constant, out of control and insanely loud clacking of those levers you had to push to get your hippo to dive for the marbles, right.

Well in Teehan+Lax’s version, you control your hippo by rubbing its back. It’s just like a petting zoo, only cleaner and with no risk of picking of the swine flu. I know hippos aren’t pigs, but there would be pigs nearby.
Look a sweet preview, no little blue mask required.

That’s a Smart Fit

March 26, 2009 at 2:26 am (Uncategorized) (, , , )

I’m late posting this but just sayin… The talented, super creative and attractive team over at T+L launched an awesomely useful and awesomely fun little microsite and quiz for TELUS. Let’s face it TELUS has approximately 64758639 phones, do you know what all of them do? I don’t. The Smart Fit Quiz matches your personality with the phone best suited to you. I’m still holding out for a smartphone that transmits the Bat signal, and is a boomerang so it will come back to me when I lose it or get angry and throw it. Until that debuts, use the Smart Fit Quiz!
