Overview: NASA landed a two-ton Martian mega-rover and shared it with the world through the space agency's first console video game. Meanwhile, the same NASA team is driving giant spider robots and humanoids with video game technologies that may revolutionize the future of space exploration. These endeavors are fueled by ground-breaking partnerships with key players in the game industry. The rocket scientists leading these projects will share the surprising crossover between video games and the systems that command real spacecraft. Packed with live demos, this talk will challenge the way you think about the future of games and space exploration.
