Gaming With My Mom

Jimmy Fallon is featuring games all next week on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

He asked viewers to send in videos of themselves playing a video game with their mom.

Well, how could I NOT do this.

I took a ride up to my mom's. She's 87 and up for anything.

I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Camera. I chose it because it has a nice built in wide angle lens. I also used a Quantaray tripod. I set the camera up just behind the top of her iMac screen, pointed down.

First I took a test shot to make sure the framing was right. I used the Galaxy Camera's voice activation to take this photo.

I should have combed my hair.

Next up was a video test. In this first video I ask my mom what she knows about video games:

Next up we played Pong on Google Chrome:

Finally we tried Mah Jong:

Thanks @SamsungMobileUS for the review unit.
