If you bought Wired magazine this month and was flicking through their supplement on the Wired magazine ‘NextFest’ event you will a picture of the Irish table top game ‘Blowaway’, familiar to some as one of the projects presented at gd.ie’s second birthday.

‘Blowaway’ was a DCU final year multimedia project which represented Ireland at EuroPrix in Vienna last year and this year was invited to attend Wired magazine’s NextFest in Chicago.

Well gd.ie has just learned that the team behind ‘Blowaway’ have secured funding and are heading off to represent DCU and Ireland in Chicago from the 24-26th of June.

We look forward to hearing how they get on.
