If you’ve been following us for a while, you know the girl geeks love to put their game face on once in a while. This time, thanks to Microsoft BeLux, we’ll be able to get our hands on the Xbox Kinect before it hits the stores!
Kinect for Xbox 360 is a “controller-free gaming and entertainment experience” by Microsoft for the Xbox 360 video game platform. Based around a webcam-style add-on peripheral for the Xbox 360 console, it enables users to control and interact with the Xbox 360 without the need to touch a game controller through a natural user interface using gestures, spoken commands, or presented objects and images. Kinect is scheduled to launch worldwide starting with North America on November 4, 2010, followed by Europe on November 10.
Date & Time:
Wednesday 3 November 18:00-22:00

To give you an idea, here are some of the Tweets the girl geeks (and their sacoches) sent out before and after the subtlemob:
Thank you Ghent, you were a large but emotional mob! #subtlemob
Bggd was een voltreffer. The #subtlemob is het nieuwe ‘luisterspel’.
Meedoen aan een #subtlemob is leuk! Morgen nog eens?!
One word : wow! #subtlemob
900 signups for #subtlemob in Gent? Holy s#*!

Extraordinary & magical: subtlemob in Gent
BGGD participates in the subtlemob by Duncan Speakman! An extraordinary and magical experience in the city centre of Ghent.
Do you know that feeling when you’re walking through the city with music in your headphones and you suddenly get the feeling you’re watching a movie? Everyday life is transformed into a scene from a movie, the streets form the setting, passers-by become extras… Duncan Speakman’s ‘As if it were the last time’ recreates that feeling with just a simple mp3 file. Duncan Speakman already held this subtlemob in London, Rotterdam and other cities, where it was always received with much enthusiasm by its participants. Watch this video with reactions from the London participants)
We meet at Foodmakers Gent (Korenmarkt 4) for lunch, a drink and coffee + a meet and greet with Duncan Speakman. After the subtlemob we gather at Muinkkaai (behind Vooruit) for a glass of bubbles with a view on the light sculpture by artist Pablo Valbuena on the back facade of Vooruit and the University buildings (part of Almost Cinema)
Course of the evening:
- 18:30 Dinner @ Foodmakers Gent (korenmarkt 4, Gent)
- 19:30 On the way to subtlemob
- 20:00 Start subtlemob
- 21:00 Bubbles @Vooruit
Male guests are allowed on invitation of a female geek.
