Will Wright is perhaps best known as the creator of The Sims.

With classic video games like The Sims and Spore under his belt, Will Wright is devoting his creativity to a form of media that truly needs it - -reality television. IGN recently learned that Wright will be helping produce a program called The Creation Project, in which viewers will be able to submit their story ideas, discuss them, and vote for a favorite. The winner will have their idea turned into two half hour episodes. The amount of episodes devoted to discovering the idea has not been disclosed, nor has the network that the program will air on -- though Current is listed as an affiliate for the project.

In addition to aiding in the production of the series alongside Spike TV founder Albie Hecht, Wright's engine-creation skills will be put to use for The Creation Project. Users will be able to submit their story ideas using a new creation of Wright's-- the "StoryMaker Engine."

We'll be sure to pass along new information regarding Wright's next venture as we learn about it. In the meantime, what do you think of this TV show idea?

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
