THINK / Musings / Resolution, from Thomas the tank engine to the Wii

Thomas the Tank Engine Inspires John Borthwick:

THINK / Musings / Resolution, from Thomas the tank engine to the Wii: "Resolution, from Thomas the tank engine to the Wii"

With the battery powered train the focus became setting up the tracks in some form of circular shape and then watch them go round and round. Play with the push trains had been much more imaginative, it was about setting up the tracks, creating narratives and pushing the trains around, speaking the narratives out loud. Thomas the electric tank engine stopped most of that. It was now about just watching him (the train that is) chug round and round the track, usually pulling cars, sometimes on his own. Less creative, less social, less physical, and shorter time wise. I was thinking how does the resolution of media and experience effect the experience of the media and play associated with it.
