Computational Hydrographics Applies Patterns Precisely: Copy Paste Connoisseur
Hydrographics or water transfer printing lets you apply graphics to objects in one pass. It gives a uniform finish and can be used even with large objects. And watching it is a great timewaster.

I’ve had a few opportunities to play with the Oculus Rift head-mounted VR display over the last year or so, but most of the demonstrations I’ve tried have focused on gaming applications.

Cart Life: The Lemonade Stand Sim for the 21st Century
I love indie games. There’s just a sort of a creative freedom, ingenuity and singular artistic vision in many of these games that makes them often more fun than the big blockbusters. One unusual little indie game that recently popped onto my radar screen was Cart Life.

SimCity: Download it Now and Start Hurling Meteors at Your Cities Today
I’d be willing to bet there are huge number of gamers out there who have fond memories of playing previous SimCity games back in the day. I know I spent many an hour building a giant city only to destroy it with a rampaging monster or some other catastrophe.

Surgeon Simulator Lets You Clumsily Try Your Hand at Open Heart Surgery

Amazing FPS Simulator Surrounds Players, Has Moving Floor
As much as I love playing FPSes on my Xbox 360 and PS3, they’re still not as immersive as they could be on my “puny” 64-inch plasma display. But thanks to simulator technology developed by UniVisual Technologies, you could soon be playing FPSes in an incredibly visceral gameplay arena.

Tamagotchi Is 15 Years Old: Is Yours Still Alive?
I remember the Tamagotchi “virtual pet” craze from years ago. It’s definitely something uniquely Japanese, but it did have global appeal too. If you were one of those original Tamagotchi fans, then you’ll be happy to find out that Bandai has just released a special 15-year anniversary edition Tamagotchi.

Ultimate FPS Simulator Actually Shoots You

Ultimate FPS Simulator Actually Shoots You
This is the most awesome, intense, realistic (and painful) video game simulator I have ever seen. It’s not a fancy driving or flight simulator; this is a simulator for FPS games. It looks like you could train real soldiers in this thing.

Japanese Dudes Invent Skydiving for Those Afraid of Heights
