Memories fade…

January 20th, 2007 by Dennis Fraederich [MCP]

Today the next round with 12 puzzles of the Vanishingpoint game started. This time the following locations were used to give hints to solve them:

  • * Great Britain, London
  • * Germany, Berlin
  • * Singapore, Singapore
  •    Canada, Toronto
  •    USA, California, San Francisco

All events marked with “*” in front of the location are already finished.

I arrived at 6.30pm at the Brandeburg Gate in Berlin, Germany. I took some pictures of the Brandeburg Gate for those people who don’t know what it is.
Between 6.30 and 7.00pm I walked around on the area in front of the Brandenburg Gate and meet some other bloggers/beta testers like Gregor Herdmann and Stefen Niemeyer (his Blog) there.
I personally thought that much people will visit the event because of the Vanishing Point game but there were around ten visitors only.
At 7pm we realized that this week “projections” are used at every event location to provide information to solve the puzzles. The event team used two very big outdoor beamers to create a very colorful projections of the universe onto the Brandenburg Gate. I have taken much pictures of the projections.
After the staff took some pictures of the projection and of course of the guys/gals which came to the event too, they used a MacBook! with MacOS on it (haha, nice… no Windows Vista…) to edit the pictures which they previously took.

Then then they used a UMTS broadband connetion to send them via an email message to the appropriate team, which uploaded them within seconds to the Vanishing Point game site.
But now have a look at the pictures which I have taken from the Brandenburg Gate.

P.S. The event team told us that there are only 65 people in the world which know the solutions of all puzzles etc. 🙂

Feel free to post your opinion, ideas etc.
