What does it mean? Where is it going? I'm delighted to offer an enthusiastic five-star endorsement!'Marcus Webb, Chief Storytelling Officer, TEDMED'A joyride into the past, present, and future of Out-Of-Home interactive entertainment. The historical backdrop, including ample wisdom from pioneers (such as Nolan Bushnell) provides a needed reference to separate the overhyped chaff this sector is known for, from the brainstorms that will form the attractions of the future.
