Photos: Cisco goes to university

Graduate students from New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program are creating a mobile game called Snagu. Using camera phones, players go on a scavenger hunt where the game provides the "tag" via a text message and players scramble to find the image. The pictures are then uploaded to a community site where people vote on the best shots and the players are rewarded with points. Snagu will go into testing this summer and is planned to launch in September.
