Lego’s Life of George transcends virtual and physical spaces

John Moe Sep 29, 2011

So Lego has this new game coming out called Life of George.

From Engadget:

Using a free EyeCue-enabled iOS app, players are tasked with recreating George’s photographs using 144 included Legos on a specialized “green screen-like” gaming mat. Once the model is complete, you’ll take a photo with your iDevice to be scored based on your building speed and accuracy to the original picture.

Comes out on Saturday.
