We are sure that many of you were wondering if the Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator guys were returning once again to MACE. We are proud to announce that thanks to HandyCapable of Greensboro, they are in fact returning to run a full weekend of spaceship bridge simulating awesomeness!
Like every year since we started, they events benefit the charity HandyCapable, an organization that refurbishes computers for those that need them the most.
Mission Statement: To enrich the lives of people with special needs by teaching them technology skills in an inclusive environment. Through our efforts, HandyCapable Network provides greater access to technology to economically challenged people and nonprofits.
So any fees and donations collected at MACE by them will go to this worthy charity.
About Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator
Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator lets you turn your living room into the bridge of a spaceship. You and your friends assume the jobs of Captain, Helm, Science, Communication, Engineering, and Weapon Control. Together you operate your ship and defend the sector from evil aliens.
Artemis simulates a spaceship bridge by networking several computers together. One computer runs the simulation and the “main screen”, while the others serve as workstations for the normal jobs a bridge officer might do. Artemis is a social game where several players are together in one room (“bridge”) , and while they all work together, one player plays the Captain, a person who sits in the middle, doesn’t have a workstation, and tells everyone what to do.
