Smith is no stranger to the consumer PC marketplace. In 2000, she founded with Oracle chairman Larry Ellison the New Internet Computer Company (NIC), a hardware company building affordable Internet machines for homes and schools. Before that, she was the computer correspondent for Good Morning America, advising millions every week on how to get the most out of their PCs. And she founded Electronic Entertainment magazine (E2), precursor of the wildly successful digital entertainment convention, the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).
"It's great to be back in the gaming market, and on such a terrific team," says Smith. "David Warthen, our founder and chairman, has a vision, and I share it."
Eye Games Inc., founded by Ask Jeeves cofounder David Warthen, is soon to announce its first product, the Eye Games Playpack. A suite of games that works with a standard PC webcam, the Playpack allows you to project your own image into actual games, and control the games using your hands, legs and other body parts.
"Webcam games are the next big wave in PC entertainment," says Warthen. "Just look at the Sony Eye Toy. It's a runaway success. Our technology will bring the same high-action, physical fun to game players on the PC platform."
