In a strange twist of the space-time fabric, theoretical physics and the universe of gaming have collided. The family van of Richard Feynman, the Nobel Prize winning theoretical physicist who gave us the Feynman diagram, has been restored to it’s original condition by Seamus Blackley, the inventor of the Xbox – which I own.
You can read all about it at Symmetry Magazine, a joint Fermilab/SLAC publication. The best paragraph, another strange confluence of gaming and physics, is the first paragraph.
“The game I play is a very interesting one,” says Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman in a low-resolution video posted to YouTube. “It’s imagination in a tight straitjacket.”
Now haven’t we all felt that way a time or two? Thank you Seamus Blackley for saving this icon of geekdom.
