Pac-Man IRL!

It was only a matter of time before someone made a real-life version of Pac-Man:

A human version of the classic arcade game Pacman, superimposing the virtual 3D game world on to city streets and buildings, is being developed by researchers at Singapore.

Players equipped with a wearable computer, headset and goggles can physically enter a real world game space by choosing to play the role of Pacman or one of the Ghosts.

A central computer system keeps track of all their movements with the aid of GPS receivers and a wireless local area network.

Next, of course, is real-life Tetris. They could even make a Survivor: Tetris, where you have to not get crushed by the blocks!
