Flash game

Just a little post today, since I don't have much time. Abiture test in germany, you know.
I guess you know this little game, if not, play it. Share your time/score here (classic mode), I'd be interested. AND! Please share your gender as well, because I'd like to see if there's some tendency in image recognition ;) Maybe you can see a bias here.
Well, here's the link:

I guess I like the game because I am fascinated by the way how we can recognize patterns and images very fast without really being able to tell why. This is one of the reason there aren't really much physical useful robots yet: They can't recognize their surroundings by imagery because its a very calculation-intensive process for them to even tell a door from a window. Well, as I said, time runs by and I got to learn some physics as well. See you soon and play the game, share your highscore ;)
I'll add my highscore ASAP.

  4. Its pretty cool... but its not hard to understand :) I mean, what you do say about robots not being able to easily recognize their surroundings is true, but remember that this is a game and it uses a platform, Adobe Flash (was about to write Macromedia, hahaha!!). The game is actually pretty simple... it also uses another 3D platform (I'm guessing, since last time I had Adobe Flash it was the version 7, and not its like 10) integrated with Adobe Flash, and it rotates the image until your mouse goes on top of an invisible button, which when you roll over will lead to another action.
    Hope it was easy to understand :P

  5. Of course. I didn't mean how the game recognizes patterns, but how HUMANS do that this fast. I mean, I was fascinated by the way WE get the pattern that fast. Of course the game has just a predefined point per image.
