haha. just when you thought that it was impossible for dorks world of warcraft players to be finally accepted by society, they go and do something even dumber than playing the damn game.
now this next bit isn’t really news, but it’s worth mentioning since i usually claim that this is a gaming blog. i also think people playing this game have something missing from their lives. i have friends who play it, and i hate having to reschedule a real life adventure because someone’s virtual guild is too stupid to function by itself while said friend is gone for 3 hours.
anyway. onto the meat of this post. it seem the king of dorks, i.e. those who attend MIT [points if you think this means ‘munchkins in training’] have built a hut to ‘take care of your real-world needs’. i say that with some sarcasm, since there is STILL no option to take a big wet dump on the game itself. here’s what the hut does provide:
- a throne that can also be used as a toilet (barf)
- a cookpot
- a computer and monitor for gameplay
you still with us? wicked. obviously you are oh-so-interested, so here are more details.
“When a player gets hungry playing inside the hut, he or she just selects one of the prepackaged food packs on the wall, holds the printed semacode under a scanner, and places it on the hot plate. From here, the hardware takes over and physically adjusts the hotplate to cook the food for the right amount of time while the player’s corresponding avatar pauses the game and loudly announces the progress to others in the realm”
yeah? you STILL with us? that’s amazing. as a bonus, go check out the rest of the world of warcraft hut details on cnet. just a warning, it may bore you to death.
