RomoCart transforms your living room into Racetrack - briefly
(hx) 05:30 PM EDT - Oct,14 2014 - Post a comment
RomoCart is a new racing game created by Ken Kawamoto and Tomoaki Akitomi which can turn your living room into a racing track! The technology used is very simple. Xtion motion sensing camera and a video projector hangs from the ceiling; both are pointed down at the floor. The camera and the video recorder make a racing track by scanning the room, and taking into consideration the layout of the room and the position of the objects placed on the floor. A race course is projected so as to avoid any hindrance by objects on the floor. Not only you can play racing, but you can also fire missiles at each other, you can also add your own objects like a teddy bear can be used as a rotating gun turret. Oh! What a fun game, really! One drawback is the speed is very slow, but it has all the attributes of a Nintendo; a race track, cars, and weapons. Just the idea of having a game like this in your living room gives an adrenaline rush.

Alien Isolation on Oculus Rift DK2 - briefly
(hx) 06:16 AM EDT - Oct,13 2014 - Post a comment / read (1)
Back in June at the 2014 E3, Alien Isolation was demonstrated on the Oculus Rift DK2 to gamers and journalists alike, who were all blown away by its horror, graphics and atmosphere. It almost seemed certain that the game would be playable on the headset on release; but alas, SEGA chose not to support the Rift. That wasn't the end of the story, however. It was clear that support for the Oculus Rift DK2 was added during its development, so immediately after the games release on September 7th, the folks at /r/Oculus began to dig through its code to see if any traces of Rift support were still remaining; and as it turns out: yes there was!

Star Wars: Battle Pod Arcade Game Revealed - console
(hx) 06:06 AM EDT - Oct,13 2014 - Post a comment / read (2)
Virtual reality could be the future of the arcade experience, but if Bandai Namco has its way, it won't involve helmets or goggles. The company's new Star Wars Battle Pod arcade game, announced today, is a giant booth that lets you sit in the cockpit of an X-Wing, snowspeeder, speeder bike, or the Millennium Falcon and fly through Star Wars's most famous battles. Star Wars Battle Pod is essentially a very dramatically upgraded version of the original and beloved Star Wars arcade game, which itself was a sit-down cabinet that asked you to pilot an X-Wing and destroy the Death Star. Star Wars Battle Pods will be released across the United States in January, but fans who would like to try it before then can play it at Dave & Busters in New York's Times Square, where it will be located through November.

TechNews - Holograms & 3D Porn: Expert Predictions - tech
(hx) 04:15 PM EDT - Oct,11 2014 - Post a comment / read (18)
  • Holograms and 3D porn: Expert predictions for a gigabit Internet - "Vivid" telepresence - holograms, immersive gaming, new collaboration services and even 3D pornography - could be the next big thing as gigabit-per-second broadband service spreads across the U.S. Enhanced telepresence and detailed virtual worlds were two of the main themes that emerged when the Pew Research Center asked more than 1,400 Internet experts and prognosticators about the possible benefits of a widely available gigabit Internet. Survey results were released Thursday. The most common theme in the nonscientific survey is that "this level of bandwidth and connectivity will change basic human interactions," said Lee Rainie, Pew's director of Internet, science and technology research. "It'll change the idea of being together, what community can be."
  • Windows 10's very different way of updating - It looks like Microsoft's next OS will bring with it a different way of updating as well. What do you think of the change?
  • Windows 10 Technical Preview Using Real-Time Keylogger? - If you have installed the Windows 10 Technical Preview, you also gave permission to Microsoft to collect data of your usage and report that back to Microsoft as feedback to improve the product. Closer examination of the code shows that you could be sending data in real time as you type.
  • Windows 10: 'Aero Glass' theme coming soon via simple mod - If you are still using Windows 7, there is a good chance that you are using 'Aero Glass'. The theme has been widely popular among enthusiasts over the years, and if you are running Windows 10, you will soon have the option to turn this theme back on. The chaps over at are working diligently to release the tools needed to enable the theme. While their website makes it seem like the release of the files needed to enable the theme are not going to be available anytime soon, a post by the creator on MDL states that because there are "no large changes in Win10's DWM, you can expect Aero Glass for Win10 earlier than" previously expected. Like many modifications to Windows, you will need the UXStyle Themepatch to enable the feature but seeing that files have not been released yet, there is not much you can do at this time. Once the theme is available, we will write up a tutorial about how to enable 'Aero Glass' on Windows 10. And when the theme is ready for everyone to use, it will be "100% same as in Win7", according to those who are making it.
  • Adobe Illustrator on the Surface Pro 3 redefines content creation - Adobe showed off what is possible when you combine the Surface with Adobe's latest CC experience with Illustrator. While we could explain it all here, the video above shows what happens when you put down the mouse and utilize other styles of input. The video is quite impressive in showing how the Pro 3 is truly a digital canvas and not simply a screen that uses a pen for input. With the ability to smudge lines with your finger and even flick paint onto a canvas from a Windows Phone, this is cross-device collaboration at its best.
  • Firefox is planning a 64-bit browser - Firefox is today available only in a 32-bit version. With both Chrome and Internet Explorer offering 64-bit versions, Mozilla seems to have fallen behind in the browser race. Until now, that is. The company has just announced on MozillaWiki, that they are planning to release a 64-bit version next year for Windows. This is apparently after several years of experimenting with 64-bit software. The Mozilla blog also states that they are implementing a 64-bit version, partially in case Microsoft decides to retire 32-bit in the release of Windows 10. Another focus is to stay relevant in the browser based gaming industry.
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Bend Test - You might have heard about the bending problem with the Apple iPhone 6 Plus. Samsung also knows about it. And the South Korean company appears to be wasting no time to show off that their own big device, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, is non-bendable
  • Sprint Ups Business Shared Data Plans to 800GB - Sprint has again doubled the size of shared data plans it offers to business customers. Early this week, Sprint increased its Business Share Plan data allotments by a factor of two. Now, it has doubled them again. Businesses can put up to 50 lines on plans with 240GB, 320GB, or 400GB for $400, $540, and $675, respectively. Businesses can put up to 100 lines on shared data plans with 600GB or 800GB for $1,010 and $1,350, respectively. The doubled Business Share Plans are available through October 31.
  • Boost Mobile to Begin iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Sales Oct. 17 - Boost Mobile today said it will offer the Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus beginning October 17. Boost is charging, in general, about $100 less than Apple is for the iPhones. Boost is selling the iPhone 6 for $550, $650, and $750 for the 16-, 64-, and 128-GB models, respectively, and the 6 Plus for $650, $750, and $850 for the 16-, 64-, and 128-GB models, respectively. Boost is a prepaid carrier operated by Sprint. It doesn't require contracts.
  • Nokia HERE Maps Now Available to Samsung Galaxy Phones - Nokia recently announced that its HERE Maps product is now available to Samsung's Galaxy smartphones. HERE Maps allows users to download entire countries or regions, which makes the maps available even when the device is offline. Downloaded maps perform faster when panning and zooming since new segments don't need to be loaded from an internet connection. HERE Maps for Galaxy devices include free, voice-guided, turn-by-turn directions. Users can plan routes via car, public transport, or foot. Live traffic updates and real-time transit schedules require a data connection. Nokia says maps are available for about 200 countries with turn-by-turn directions available in about 100. Transit maps are available in 750 metro areas across 40 different countries, with more being added all the time. HERE Maps can be found in the Samsung Galaxy Apps Store directly on handsets and is being offered first in beta form. It requires 1GB of RAM and Android 4.1 and up.
  • Virgin Mobile Adjusts Pricing, Intros $20 No-Data Option - Virgin Mobile USA today made some changes to its service plans. To start, the company added a new, low-cost plan for $20 per month. It includes 300 voice minutes, unlimited messaging, but no data. The $35 plan now gives customers a choice. They can opt for unlimited voice minutes with 250MB of high-speed data, or 300 voice minutes and up to 2.5GB of 3G/4G data access (speeds throttled once allotment reached). Both $35 options include unlimited messaging. Virgin also offers a $45 plan, which includes unlimited minutes/messages and up to 1GB of data, and a $55 plan, which includes unlimited minutes/messages and up to 3GB of high-speed data. The new plans are available beginning today and can be paired with most devices sold by Virgin. Customers may also choose to pay another $5 per month for unlimited voice minutes to Canada and Mexico, or another $10 per month for 1,000 minutes to more than 200 countries.
  • Gmail for iOS Updated with Support for iPhone 6 / 6 Plus - Google has updated its Gmail application for Apple's iOS devices. The new version supports the screen sizes and resolutions of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Gmail is free to download from the iTunes App Store.
  • USB Attacks with Mobile Devices Using Kali NetHunter - The Offensive Security folks are at it again. The builders of the popular pentesting distribution Kali Linux have launched a new tool called Kali NetHunter for Android devices. The tool is a mobile distribution designed to compromise systems via USB when installed and run on an Android phone. The tool can masquerade as a keyboard via HID style attacks, issue commands to open an admin shell amongst other attacks, including BadUSB man-in-the-middle style attacks.
  • JP Morgan sees 76 million customer accounts hacked - JP Morgan has revealed it suffered a massive cyber attack on 76 million private and seven million business customers in the US. The raid gathered account holders names and addresses but the bank said it did not involve critical information such as account and social security numbers. The bank said that "customers [whose accounts had been hacked] are not liable for unauthorized transactions on their account that they promptly alert the firm to". JP Morgan says it is unlikely customers will need to take any action, such as changing their passwords or account information.
  • The Truth about Youtube Brand Deals - With the recent big blow up about paid promo and brand deals on youtube, I decided to make this video for you guys to help inform you about these types of buys and why its happening, and most importantly, how to differentiate these types of videos.
  • Windows 95 Runs on Android Wear Device - Corbin Davenport took his Samsung Smartwatch and installed Windows 95 on it, posting a video of the results. Useful? Not really. Impressive? Very :-)

  • Peregrine Falcon vs Skydiver (video) - Forget the Cheetah, which can only manage to hit speeds of up to 120 km/h. Of course, that is fast. But the big cat can never reach the speeds with which the fastest animal in the world travels. We are talking about the peregrine falcon that is known to fly with speeds of up to 389 km/h. Can't imagine how fast that is? You just have to think about the fastest car in the world, which traveled at 435.5 km/h in a NASA facility back in February
  • Scientists ready to test lab-grown penises on men - Penises grown in laboratories could soon be tested on men by scientists developing technology to help people with congenital abnormalities, or who have undergone surgery for aggressive cancer or suffered traumatic injury. Researchers at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, are assessing engineered penises for safety, function and durability. They hope to receive approval from the US Food and Drug Administration and to move to human testing within five years.  The penises would be grown using a patient's own cells to avoid the high risk of immunological rejection after organ transplantation from another individual.
  • How the Clean Air Act unintentionally led to a butterfly massacre - Well, nobody cares about butterflies.

Variety reports that co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost are working on the scripts, which will be set in present day but continue with the original plot.

  • What It's Like To Film A Hollywood Sex Scene - Giving someone notes on their acting is weird enough. Giving someone notes on how to pretend to be having intercourse is downright hilarious.
  • An Infinitely More Badass Way To Cross A Bridge  - This isn't Mario Kart. You can't just ride on top of the rails like it's Mushroom Bridge. But this stuntman doesn't seem to care.

Firefly Online - 3D Environment Engine Video - briefly
(hx) 07:09 PM EDT - Oct,10 2014 - Post a comment / read (1)
What you're seeing in this video is *not* a cinematic. It is a live recording of the Firefly Online 3D Environment Engine at work, which creates the encounter maps for the game. This brief "walkthrough" of a procedurally-generated derelict ship should give a sense for the level of detail FFO will offer in both encounter maps and player avatars. The game will have many kinds of encounters for players to enjoy, from desert wildernesses to floating cities to giant automated ships you can freely explore. When it comes to derelicts, you never know what might have gotten to that tasty bit of salvage before you, and what might still be there, waiting for you to drop by. It would be a mistake to assume Firefly Online is only horses, spaceships and sidearms. There are things out there in the Black that you should sincerely hope you never run into.
