So many of you are attending MAGWest, our parking lots are getting pretty full! The DoubleTree is doing all they can for us, including opening up their employee lot, but just in case, please consider carpooling, public transit, a neighboring public lot, teleportation, etc.

TASBot is like a player piano for classic video game consoles, sending a predefined sequence of button presses using only controller ports. TASBot plays games faster than any human possibly could and often glitches them beyond all recognition. He relies on humans to create those predefined sequences in the form of Tool-Assisted Speedrun movie files. This talk covers how the very first TAS runs were created and the history of how we got here. Come for the live demos, stay for the breakage and Q&A!
