Reality Paintball

Is Big Brother still going these days? Has it been axed yet? We’re not big fans of lazy reality TV round these parts (as we’ve mentioned before) but then, who is? A recent survey unveiled the shock revelation that, believe it or not, viewers want to see far less of the reality and celebrity driven drivel and way more of the drama and documentaries on their boxes.

However Top Gear was named the favourite show my the same participants. I didn’t think it was possible to have any more Top Gear on our televisions?

However, the smart folk at have created just what we’ve been waiting for: the world’s first reality video game. No, not some kind of futuristic take on Halo, but really just an online ‘Big Brother’ style house where the ‘viewers’ decide what happens next.

Unsurprisingly, the idea comes from the same recession-trashing folks behind the genius, and as such, the house is filled with 20 paintball guns. All remote controlled by viewers. Getting involved is simple too – I’m pretty sure you download an app which brings up a straightforward interface, from where you can track down and fire upon the unsuspecting ‘internet celebrities’.

A little touch of genius to start your weekend off with I’m sure you’ll agree.
