You Can Shout ‘ENHANCE!’ Like a TV Detective With This Voice-Controlled Browser Game
Finally you can investigate photos they way they do in every sci-fi/techie film ever. Via Gizmodo:
Written by Nicole He, ENHANCE.COMPUTER puts you in the role of Detective CYB3R who wields some of the most advanced image-enhancement and crime prediction software ever developed. Your goal is to spot and report a small, four-digit code hidden somewhere on a grainy image before time runs out, but the game can only be played by shouting a handful of voice commands, including “zoom in,” “move left,” or “enhance,” at your browser.
The game only works in Google Chrome, but even more limiting is that you’re going to have to turn on your computer’s microphone to play it. So if you’re working in a busy office, commuting on a crowded subway, or anywhere else other than a private room with the door closed, be prepared to fend off looks of confusion and annoyance from anyone within earshot.
