Last week New Scientist Technology featured an article by Max Glaskin on the subject of Gaming using GPS technology, with mentions of the Pervasive Media Studio: "While some location-aware games can be played anywhere, others may be strongly connected to a particular area, says Constance Fleuriot of the Pervasive Media Studio in Bristol, UK, those strongly connected to a particular area, say, Manhattan, and those that can be played anywhere. Fellow resident Jon Dovey, says GPS gaming is likely to be the first application to introduce the masses to being connected digitally to their surroundings, something he calls "ambient connectivity".
