Is this what is going to be possible from the SDK?
Oh my. Still need convincing that the iPhone/iPod touch is the greatest gaming platform ever made? Then check this video of a couple Japanese researchers playing a game they claim to have put together "in about an hour": multiscreen, touch-based Pong.
On first glance, it looks like the game is even checking orientation of the iPods, but if you watch it a little further, when things go faster, you can see that it's actually just pushing the ball from screen to screen as it leaves. Still, if nothing else, a quick demo like this shows that multiple Touches (via a certain website, or on the same WiFi network, maybe, or -- hopefully -- just in close proximity to one another through Bluetooth or another protocol) can easily be made to connect multiplayer gamers.
As a demo, very nice (and it seems fun as a game as well). Can't wait to see a full-featured game that takes advantage of all of the iPhone's connectivity options.
AWESOME! Imagine haveing Lan parties for doom/counterstrike
iCopter could be made into a race and rageing thunder could be verse other people.

is it kind of like an ad-hoc connection used? between the touches? aka iPod - iPod? or are they using a wireless lan to connect to? like iPod - router - ipod? if its the first then this is awesome as it means you can play people in games etc that are next to you without having to find a wlan... If not then this is still cool, but not as coolPlease Register or Log in to view images lol
This totally rocks.
Reminds me of how DS works...
yeah but are they actually using ad-hoc? or just all connected to the same network?
Would be freaking awesome if it was ad-hoc
