Point your phone or PDA at a sign and have content downloaded to your device. That's the idea behind Hypertag.

Sony has signed a deal with Digimask to use their virtual head creator software on the PS2 in conjunction with the EyeToy. Take front and side shots of your head with the EyeToy and Digimask will construct a head.

Re-mixable films tribe

As a taster for the re-mixable films community, I recently set up http://remixablefilms.tribe.net to collect stills, signposts and discussion.

Why let game players have all the fun? Let's MOD the movies. How would you fiddle with your favourite films if they let you? What are people doing anyhow?

Tracey Moffatt and Leigh Bowery films

Tracey Moffat's photography and films are being showcased at the Museum of Contemporary at Art, Sydney at the moment. She is not known for interactive film-making but Love (2003) is a stunning 21 minute compilation of male/female kissykissy/love/hate/slap!/"I can't take this any more"/*woman blows guy away* moments from popular cinema.

Tracey Moffatt - Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery - Sydney, Australia

More of a cover than a re-mix, the MCA is also currently the place to sample the life and fabulousness of Leigh Bowery, including a music video cover of Walk This Way that would have Run DMC choking on their lattes. If you have never seen a merkin (ie pubic wig) in action then better get wise and check this out.

The Australian spoof news site, CNNNN, is packed with video clips from the show and elegantly satirises the slick packaging of television media. The audience-contributed news ticker is a nice touch too.

Unity is a collaborative game project between two llegendary game designers Jeff Minter (Llamasoft) and Peter Molyneux (Lionhead Studios). Fans of Rez will be pleased to know that another "abstract shooter", that allows you to perform interactive graphics, is on its way.
