The SXSW Interactive Gaming Expo is my favorite event (besides Auditorium Shores Concerts). It combines developers, manufacturers and fans of the gaming culture with its diverse range of events of geek culture with the cross-console video game world. It’s held at Palmer auditorium in Austin (walking distance from my casa) and is kid friendly. The most adorable thing about this is to see little kids geek out on games like my little brothers and I use to back in the day.
There was allot to see and explore at the SXSW Gaming Expo so I am going to highlight what I found the most interesting.
Plotagon is the creative animation app that develops students’ skills in critical thinking, creativity and writing. The Plotagon character creator lets students create themselves, famous and notable people, or characters and then the creative writing takes off from there. When I wrote my first play (at 12) I wish I had this app (though in my day we had beepers…not smartphones). I’m so jealous yet excited of kid’s technology now a days! Definitely check out Plotagon especially if you are a teacher; I believe getting kids engaged with creative writing and technology is brilliant!
“Road’s? Where we’re going we don’t need roads!” That quote seems more relevant now than back then because during SXSW the AeroMobil flying car that transforms in seconds from an automobile to an airplane was introduced.

As a car it fits into any standard parking space, uses regular gasoline, and can be used in road traffic just like any other car. As a plane it can use any airport in the world, but can also take off and land using any grass strip or paved surface just a few hundred meters long.* Continue Reading…

This year was my first experience actually attending E3. I had planned it for others before but never attended until now! As I walked into the LA convention center I was blown away immediately with a HUGE Pepsi Rockband stage with fellow rockbander rocking away, check out the video here! I then walked into the south hall with my cutegeek partner in crime Radiris and I was AMAZED as you can see in my video here you can listen to my excitement plus see my girl!
My first observation, this was not like CES at all. There were so many women gamers and women executives at E3; I loved it! I believe women gamers truly showed themselves at E3 especially with Rockband, Guitar Hero, Wii Fit, Dance Revolution and Disney. Of course we had some booth babes in gamer costumes; but I frankly thought they looked GREAT!
