  • russell davies: fair play
    “where this thing really scored is in an element I’ve not noticed in a lot of the talk about play – fairness. And kids are utterly, utterly obsessed with fairness. It’s the most important element in any game. And human rule-enforcement is automatically deemed unfair. There is no referee, umpire or god-like grandparent that can escape being seen as unfair at some point, for some decision. But the commanding voice of Cosmic Catch escapes all that. The relentless, ineluctable judgement of the RFID machine brooks no argument, is prey to no human frailties and biases and is immediately seen as fair. Or actually Fair. Or even FAIR.

    All of which makes for better playing. “
