TIMONIUM, Md.--Computer towers once used by 38 Studios employees are lined up in neat rows, tagged and ready for sale.
A hand-recognition security system and sleek touch-screen tablets are on the block, too, poignant reminders of the high-tech ambitions the company once fostered.
A pool table where employees might have idled away time while brainstorming ideas can be had for a price, not to mention Xbox 360 and Wii consoles and shelves of video games.
The products, from expensive technology to mundane office knickknacks, helped lay the foundation of 38 Studios, the video game company founded by former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling that was once promising but now is in bankruptcy.
The company is selling off all its assets in separate auctions planned for today in Maryland and next week at the company's downtown Providence, R.I., headquarters, where Schilling's team was working on the "massively multiplayer online game" that was critical for 38 Studios' success.
The products were on display Monday at a Timonium, Md., office building.
