Addressing the issue of motivation in life through games. Discuss creating environments that allow people to motivate themselves for action, apply the methods developed by psychology of happiness and increase their belief in their own abilities.See More
Why doesn't gameful have games to play like other popular social networking sites, or does it? Let's make and play some! Maybe they could be worth site points. At the very least, they could bring us together as a group. First game, what image should be used for this group? 15 group points to the winner! See More
This is in the "games for change" section because its relevant, while very opposite. Its a game trying to keep things as they are, to give people a "purpose" to their lives as moving paperwork around that goes in the garbage since its not real. They say people want to feel like part of a bigger process, even if it does nothing useful. To save Europe's economy, this game is what they came up with. If thats among their best few solutions, you can see why their economy is doing so bad in the first…See More
"New discovery about integer factoring - play with it on screenhttp://VisualInteger.com (version 0.2.0) is a puzzle view of binary integer factoring. Its opensource software (GNU GPL 2+), for those who want to experiment farther.Its multiplied when…"
Open source game will be at https://sourceforge.net/projects/visualintfactor after I build a basic version, and hopefully if the discussions here lead to new ideas for how to interact with the available transforms on the hexagon grid (to factor or unfactor or move the 1 bits around randomly without solving), it will soon be in the next version... I know the math, but the game part of it is harder.I'm looking for ideas how to make it…See More
Its a group for teachers who would like to create educational games. Me and my team is working on a tool which will let every teacher to create educational game with out programming skills. Please join our group and help to make it :) See More

In an artificial intelligence way, I'm working toward a shared Internet space where we build the game from inside the game, so it must be Open Source meaning everyone has the legal and technical ability (if they have the skill) to change or build onto the game. Researching toward a shared Internet space where people use pattern matching (artificial intelligence) tools to represent thoughts as flows of colors, shapes, and patterns, and see how they fit together as a big puzzle.
Built many prototypes of parts of math, but still looking for ways to use them together to represent thoughts similar to how brains represent visual patterns and abstract ideas.
Rebuiding a foundation of math from statistics, circle/sphere/hypersphere and wave
Standard Deviation (stdDev) of sum of C^2 coin flips, counting each as -1 or 1, is C.
Do this with 2 groups of coins and you get circles, a 2d bell curve where density is spread evenly across all possible angles.
This extends to any number of dimensions as every n dimensional bell curve (hyperbell) has an n-1 dimensional hypersphere of constant density at each radius.
If you start anywhere in a 2d grid like an infinite chess board, move 1 square up, down, left, or right, and repeat C^2 times, you will be about C distance from where you started.
Fourier of a bell curve in 1d at any location in the circle input is another bell curve at a constant location, and its phase wraps around more times depending on original position,
and you can play with this in my open source Physicsmata 0.5.2 (not other versions).
In vision research a bellcurve windowed fourier is called the Gabor Transform.
Mountcastle's neocortex theory says it works the same way all over, levels of patterns made of the timing and sequences of other patterns, from low level visual, audio, and other details of senses, to high level abstract ideas, object made of other objects,
and the neuromodulation (short term memory) is similar to a boltzmann machine
which is a bidirectional neural net that works the same up and down.
