We’re very pleased to announce we’ve signed up an exceptional academic advisor for an R&D project we’re putting together. Andy Clark, Professor of Logic and Metaphysics at Edinburgh University, is one of the world’s leading thinkers on the cutting edge of psychology, neuroscience and philosophy. His work explains the roles our bodies, the tools and structures we build, and the environments we live and play in, have in ‘mental’ processes we usually think of as taking place entirely inside the head.
In our brave new world of whole-body game controllers, pervasive technology, cheap robots and games everywhere, Andy’s thinking, and the brand of brain and mind sciences he explains, is becoming more and more relevant to understanding ourselves and our daily lives. His books, from Being There: Putting Brain, Body And World Together Again (MIT Press, 1997) to Supersizing the Mind: Embodiment, Action, and Cognitive Extension (Oxford University Press, 2008), are essential reading and have been a great inspiration for us here at Hide&Seek.
Our R&D project with Andy is currently under wraps while we’re talking to some commercial partners. Suffice to say we’re exceedingly excited about it and sometime soon we’ll be getting you involved.
