PacMap, a live-action, smartphone implementation of Pac-Man, sounds so cool (simply because it appeals to my inner geek)! Hopefully they have the 'exits' (what would that correspond to in real life?), and they damned well better have preserved the trick of being able to go through the ghosts without dying when they ever-so-briefly turn their eyes away from you. (Not that I am a snob when it comes to features of the Pac-Man games...) (Tip of the cap to The Physics Arxiv Blog.) Update: I just noticed that the article in Technology Review and the arXiv paper both spell "Pac-Man" incorrectly.
