Generate Patterns to be Consumed by a Quantum 3D Printer; Improve Software Security through Gameplay

page37.jpeg

A decoded message from a distant galaxy provided the plans for a Quantum Mechanical 3D printer in Left Brain Games’ puzzle shooter, Dynamakr. Players feed patterns into the machine to create designs for new devices never seen before on Earth—devices so advanced, they’re like magic. Game play allows non-experts to participate in improving software security in Phase 2 of DARPA’s Verigames project.
