Intel Light Drones Open For Winter Olympic, Made New World Record

It looks like Intel is determined to be the name in the new-age fireworks with the use of drones. Not content with having just 100 drones up in the sky in 2015, the processor maker put 500 drones into the sky in Germany in 2016, ‘dancing’ to a live orchestra, which bagged it a Guinness World Records, and this time, Intel has outdone itself again with 1,218 Intel Shooting Star drones which lit the night sky at the Winter Olympic 2018 opening ceremony in PyeongChang, South Korea, on February 9. The feat was witnessed by Guinness World Records and subsequently recognized as a new world record for “most unmanned aerial vehicles airborne simultaneously.” Continue reading Intel Light Drones Open For Winter Olympic, Made New World Record

I am never a fan of Funko Pop series of action figures. Why? Because they too god damn cute. That’s why. But this animation here, presented by Marvel and Funko Pop, may just change the way I see Funko Pop Marvel superheroes collectibles. They are still cute, but now that it is being animated, it is action cute. Like action super cute. This particular clip is all about Captain America kicking his long time archenemy Red Skull’s ass. If anything, it is too god damn cute to pass. Honestly, we never thought bringing Funko Pop to life can be this awesome.

Netflix Promotes Altered Carbon By Growing Human Bodies At CES

The recently concluded world’s biggest electronic was the platform for many who wants their wares to be seen and heard, and Netflix, the streaming TV service, was no exception. In fact, it had more reason to be there, simply because of the theme surrounding its much hyped cyberpunk series, Altered Carbon which it had leveraged on CES to promote. So, yeah, Netflix had a booth and it was one that no visitor will past by without noticing – thanks mainly to a pair of humans being lab-grown. Alongside the human specimens, each floating in its own vats (which are rather creepy), are elaborate gadget props and viral videos to further help to promote the “company.” Continue reading Netflix Promotes Altered Carbon By Growing Human Bodies At CES

Pole Dancing Robots Struck Again, This Time At A Vegas Club During CES

Robots are set to replace many tasks now carried out by humans. In fact, it already did in some industry, more notably, the auto industry and they have already taken the jobs of flipping burgers, checking stocks at supermarket, security patrol (and committing suicide?), harvesting and whatnot, and now, even strip dancing? Or to be more precise, pole dancing to entertainment men and women.

Gamer Creates A Haunting But Visually Spectacular Virtual Aliens Thrill Ride

Aliens is one of the pop culture phenomena of the 70s and it is a wonder why there isn’t an official Aliens-themed thrill ride. Perhaps, the theme is a little too dark for commercial success? I don’t know. Whatever it is, it does not stop YouTuber Hin Nya, who appears to be a huge fan of Aliens of Japanese descent, from creating one, but virtually, of course, using a steam game, a theme park simulator called Planet Coaster by Frontier Developments.

The most joyous day of the year may be behind us, but that does not mean the joy should not continue. Having said that, do you know what makes ‘joy’? Well, it would be a hilarious animated short about Christmas such as this animated Christmas short entitled Dear Satan. One look at the title, you knew it is going to tickle your funny bone. Created by ad agency Anomaly London, the film is about a young lass whose heartfelt letter to Santa inadvertently landed on the desk of the prince of darkness because of a very innocent mistake: a typo of ‘Satan’ instead of ‘Santa’.

Furze & Burton Built A Full-Size Kylo TIE Fighter And A Rolling BB-9E Droid

First, it was the AT-AT from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and now, a Kylo Ren’s TIE Fighter – life-size, no less. Yes. We are talking about our favorite garage inventor, madcap Colin Furze and yes, he built a crazy awesome full-size TIE Fighter which a person (or a few kids) can enter. It doesn’t fly though, obviously, but still cool, nonetheless. Like last year, Furze has teamed up with eBay for this project. However, there’s something special this year. James Burton of XRobots was also involved and for his part, the go-to guy for all-thing robotics have built incredible, remote control evil droid BB-9E to go with Colin’s Kylo Ren TIE Fighter.

Avengers: Infinity War‘s First Trailer Nearly Took My Breath Away

Suddenly, I wanted May 2018 to arrive sooner, all because of Avengers: Infinity War. We knew Marvel Studios’ biggest project to date, Avengers: Infinity War, will be grand in every ways. Grand in cast, you know, the coming together of all our favorite superheroes old and new. Grand in the settings and not to mention, the crazy FX and CGI that makes all the movie magic possible. We expected and anticipated those, but to see the first trailer, I am totally stoked and breathless at the same time. Completely overwhelmed is what I would use to describe how I felt after watching the 2 minute plus preview. Yes. It is just 2.24 minutes, but it feels like forever (in a good way).

Bandai Namco Brings Back Tamagotchi In Both Hardware And App Iterations

Tamagotchi, the digital pet that took the world by storm (well, kind of) was released 21 years ago in Japan and 20 years ago, in 1997, to the rest of the world. I am not sure the allure of this virtual pet thing, but it was somewhat a huge hit two decades ago. At least it was huge enough that even my ex-girlfriend had one (which I need help to take care, btw). Anyways, to mark the 20th year, Bandai Namco is not only re-releasing an updated Tamagotchi, but it is also going the mobile route with a smartphone and tablet app version called My Tamagotchi Forever. Well, forever only if you keep a look out for it cos’ while on the mobile platform, this digital pet of yours will still need to be fed, bathed, and loved, or it will say sayonara to you.
