This year is the 30th anniversary of Pac Man, and the Museum of Modern Computing in Swindon, UK is having a day of celebration on Saturday 22nd of May.
A specially constructed maze in Swindon town centre’s Wharf Green will be the venue for a unique ‘Human Pac-man’ event. Members of the public will be able to control a real-life Pac-man, trying to avoid the giant ghosts while collecting dots. Participants and onlookers will be able get a bird’s eye view of the action thanks to a video camera feeding Swindon’s twenty-five square metre ‘Big Screen’.
Interesting isn’t it? The museum will also have about a gazillion versions of pac-man across a multitude of consoles. Further details are available at www.museumofcomputing.org.uk
