Real Life Pacman (Kind of)

This image was lost some time after publication.

Namco and Bandai showed off this project at IREX 2005 this year. It is a little too farfetched to be a real toy on the market, but nevertheless it's pretty cool. It is a scaled up PacMan map that features a robot PacMan along with Pinky, the pink ghost. The robot is controlled by you, as you play the actual video game on a television screen. Just when you thought Namco had managed to milk every single cent out of the PacMan franchise they pulled out something else that is pretty sweet.
