Never Try Playing DOOM with Your Porsche 911

Never Try Playing DOOM with Your Porsche 911
Playing DOOM and driving may not be the safest thing to do. But according to software engineer Matt Swarthout a.k.a. Vexal, there is a way to actually play the game on the computer display of a Porsche 911, and using the car’s steering wheel, pedals, horn, and gear shifter to control the game. According to Swarthout’s obviously suspect video, you can easily modify a Porsche 911 or any other vehicle to run the classic first-person shooter thanks to the car’s onboard computer.

Nintendo Switch Shown in Menu Leak Video Was Apparently Stolen

Nintendo Switch Shown in Menu Leak Video Was Apparently Stolen
Last week we talked a bit about the video that leaked showing some of the menus and UI of the Nintendo Switch console. That leak was by a dude called “hiphoptherobot,” who said of how he got his hands on the console, “It isn’t like I grabbed it off the back of a truck or anything, I just happened to get lucky because unnamed store decided to ship early for whatever reason.” Nintendo has now called BS on that claim and has issued a statement saying that the consoles used in the leak were in fact stolen.

Documentary Shows Real Sword Combat Was Nothing Like Video Games or Movies
I like sword fights as much as the next guy. I mean, maybe I like them more. I’m not into renaissance fairs or LARPing, but I did take fencing way back in the day. I also rather like movies and video games with sword fights because they look cool. As it turns out, back in the days when the sword was the best weapon around, the fights were nothing like what we see on screen.

Transforming Ceiling Fan: More than Meets the Eye
Check out this video that demonstrates the Fanimation Air Shadow ceiling fan. This thing is basically a Transformer for your ceiling. The blades stay retracted until it gets up to speed, then they spread out. I just can’t think of a good Transformer name for it.
