Disney Venturing into Gaming...

So that's two articles that I've read where Disney is venturing into gaming. The first was an article from the Wall Street Journal [Disney Could Raise Its Game With EA] about Disney and EA. Second, at CES, Disney launched "Disney Star Guitarist" that competes with Sony's Guitar Hero published by Gizmodo [Disney Star Guitarist: Guitar Hero, But With Real Guitars]. Often I wondered, why I would play Guitar Hero because I wouldn't gain musical skills if I spent all those hours, but with Disney Star Guitarist, gamers can learn how to play real music.

This idea reminds me of a prototype that Cory Forsyth worked on 2 years ago. He designed a tangible guitar interface using infrared in our Introduction to Physical Computing at ITP taught by Tom Igoe. It was pretty cool, and even cooler that it worked.

Last, I recently saw a job post for a major company hiring 60 UX/UI designers in Los Angeles. I'm wondering if that's Disney.
