Today’s invention is to link a computer game to a laser cutter (or, in future a 3D printer).

When you achieve some sub-goal in the game, you get access to codes which allow the cutter, attached to your machine, to create a facsimile of some artifact within the game itself (eg the raygun of Zod).

This can then be used to house your mobile phone which will allow additional elements of the next stage of play to be activated.

The phone will talk to the games machine via wifi and its touchscreen can be used to trigger control events.
