Sony PS4 Pro: Get The Price and Release Date Now

Sony PS4 Pro: Get The Price and Release Date Now
Sony today announced a new model of its PlayStation 4 console, specifically targeted at those looking for the best possible image quality from their game systems. The highlight of the PS4 Pro (rumored to be called the “PlayStation Neo”) is its ability to render games in 4K and with high dynamic range visuals. PS4 Lead Architect Mark Cerny explained that the system’s upgraded GPU, faster CPU and faster memory will allow the PS4 Pro to not only render 4K gaming and video, but to offer enhanced visual effects and frame rates, thanks to the more powerful hardware. At its core, it’s still a PS4, so the new console can play all existing games, and a combination of technologies, such as anti-aliasing and upscaling will also make current 1080p games look sharper on 4K displays.

Game of Thrones Night King Figure Glows, Won’t Raise the Dead
We haven’t seen much of the Night King in Game of Thrones, but he’s definitely one of the coolest villains that the series has featured. I liked the way he raised all the dead Wildlings to add to his army, as Jon and crew stood on their boat in shock.

Creepy Robot That Helped NASA Test Space Suits Is for Sale
Of course NASA used a creepy robot to test space suits meant for real-life astronauts. Because they can. That’s always the reason for creepy robots. The Power-Driven Articulated Dummy as it was apparently called, was designed specifically for NASA by the IIT Research Institute, and used to test space suits between 1963 and 1965. NASA used it to measure things like how much pressure was being applied by their space suits, what kind of internal pressure was being kept stable, and various other pieces of data.

LEGO Donald Trump Talking Head Is HUGEly Creepy

Cthulhu Hourglass Counts Drop by Drop to Your Doom
This Cthulhu hourglass will count down the remaining moments of your life, leading your impending doom. Inside the hourglass, a gooey red liquid appears to be the same sort of colored, thickened goo that is used in those cheap toys you see in the mall. It would be cooler with blood red sand inside, I think.
