Games Invading Real Life: What will happen when real game designers become involved?

Jesse Schell speaks about games and their gradual infiltration into real life.  His talk, given in February at the DICE Summit 2010 and provided through TED, is a poignant, insightful investigation of some of the most incredible, powerful, and influential developments of our time.  Schell argues that games and entertainment are trying to mimic and infiltrate reality, while reality is being made into a series of game scenarios.

As of today – early October 2010 – there are more Farmville players than Twitter users.

In a classic segment, Schell refers to the iPhone as a “digital Swiss Army knife.”  He goes on to speak of a future scenario in which pretty much everything is connected… Brilliant and frightening!
