With this interactive game, which was produced at the Electronic Visualization Laboratory at the University of Illinois in Chicago, you can.

The interactive game 'Fleet Commander' is displayed on a 20-foot multitouch display with an astounding resolution so you will always feel part of the action. This game is dubbed a real-time strategy game, so you always have to think on your feet. Although there may be no real-life consequences, you could destroy your ships or even lose your whole fleet.
