Videogames are very good at engaging our eyes and ears, but when it comes to touch we still have a long way to go. Force feedback is the gaming industry’s attempt to engage our sense of touch, but it’s limited at best.
We’ve seen a boutique line of flash drives that play upon the fact that data is invisible, which means we can’t see their containers being filled up even if they’re already “full” of data. Here’s another take on that amusing dissonance, an empty bottle with a USB drive cork stopper.
I read a lot about the “Green Revolution” over the last weekend, since it was one of the topics covered in my school Finals. You’d think that something with that name would have something to do with saving the environment, right?
You’ve seen the old ship in a bottle, and the airplane in a lightbulb, but I bet you’ve never seen a TARDIS in a bottle before. That’s because the Doctor tries his best not to materialize inside confined spaces.
If you’re the sort that watches The Walking Dead regularly you know the zombie apocalypse could come at any second. You may go to sleep tonight only to wake up in the morning and find the undead are swarming your neighborhood and want nothing more than to feast on your entrails.
We’ve all heard countless times how simply petting an animal can decrease stress and help improve a person’s state of mind. But what if you’re unable to take care of a real pet? There have been plenty of attempts to create robotic animals over the years, but none of them have really succeeded at providing the same feedback as a real animal.
Mario, Pac-Man and Donkey Kong already have their own energy drinks, so why shouldn’t Sonic the Hedgehog have one too? That’s exactly what designers Julie Aniela and Jak Hornblow thought when they designed this concept packaging for Chaos Emerald Energy Drink.
We know your body and mind has long been ready for Mass Effect 3, but is your console as prepared as you are? If it still plays games then yes it is. But if you’re willing to spend to make it even more prepared, you can outfit it with a badass N7 armor courtesy of Calibur 11.
Those mad scientists at the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) won’t be happy until we are all hunted down by their creations. Working towards this goal, some of their robot animals are getting way faster than you or I can run.
Here’s a first-world problem that has bugged the hell out of me. If you’re listening to music on an iOS device using a pair of headphones and for some reason you unplug them from your device, the music player will pause the playback.
iRobot makes a bunch of different robots that are in use by the military and police to apprehend bad guys without getting humans killed. About this time last year, we mentioned the then new 110 FirstLook robot.
British illustrator Sam Kerr recently re-imagined several famous portraits, turning them into caricatures using his iPhone. The caricatures removed detailed facial features and replacing them with a few squiggles and typographic characters.
The portraits had their faces erased and redone.
A lot of people are particular about the food that they eat. Aside from considering the nutritional content, there’s also taste, aroma, and of course, presentation. I don’t really care how my meals look like, as long as they taste good, with the exception of this Evil Dead Bento Box, that is.
The big news lately is that the latest Assassin’s Creed game is set during the American Revolution. And now we have an official trailer, which shows us that the tomahawk that Ratohnaké:ton is carrying is not just for decoration.
I used to be a sucker for novels. Now I’m a sucker for graphic novels and comic books. Maybe it’s because I did so much reading back in college that I don’t find reading long blocks of just text fun anymore, but there’s just something about seeing the images right then and there on the page rather than just having to imagine it all in your mind.
