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
Videos like Ken Block’s famous Gymkhana series never fail to set boy racers’ heart fluttering. It even aspired some to do the same, but there’s just one problem: money. It is true that some may have the talent necessary to pull a Gymkhana off (even with R/C car, if I may add), but their abilities to do so is, like I said, only limited by the money they have. Nobody can’t afford to Hoon like Ken Block without the dough, or so we thought. As it turns out, you don’t need monster (pun intended) budget to pull a smooth Gymkhana as proven by Etienne Guerra. Continue reading Watch A 60HP Ford Fiesta Pulls Off The Cheap Version Of Gymkhana

And to be honest, we thank god it isn’t. Anyways, the thing we want to tell you about is Project Oscar: The Modular Body. Noticed we put them in Italic?

Continue reading Oscar Is Modular, Lab-created ‘Human’ And We Are Glad It Isn’t Real
Been to a carnival? Good. Now, if you felt carnival games are a little scammy. Well, the good news is, you are not wrong. I mean, seriously, you didn’t think that could have it this easy, did you? Paying some loose change and you’d get guarantee yourself a big-ass plushy to impress your girl? That would be too easy.

And the event that you did win, you’d be overpaying for the perceived “expensive” plushy. Continue reading You’ve Always Felt Carnival Games Are Scammy, Now One Guy Prove That It Is
Oh. You weren’t invited to the China’s 19th CPC National Congress? Oh, what ashamed. But I am sure if you are in China, you would have tuned in and watched the monotone speech given by China’s incumbent President Xi Jinping which went on for an excruciating three hours and twenty three minutes. We are not a political website, btw, nor are we pro-China, and therefore, we shall refrain from touching on what was the speech was about. But as you have come to expect from a speech of this nature, it was appropriately interjected by enthusiastic applause from the floor. Continue reading There Is A Mobile Game That Lets You Clap For China’s President. Yes, Really.

Well, it looks like UK’s obsession with gender quality/diversity has found its way to long-running, popular television series Doctor Who. How so? Well, whether you like it or not, the next 13th Doctor Who is going to be played by a woman. Yes. You heard that right, mate. A female Doctor. While female medication practitioners aren’t new, a woman playing the fictional Time Lord is the first. You could a say it is a milestone, you know, if you are into all the gender equality. Then again, I am not mega fan and so, whoever takes on the character does not bother me a bit, though I cannot say the same for hardcore fans who have been following the Doctor since like forever. Continue reading Time Lord Turns Time Lady Because The 13th Doctor Who Is A Lady
Fans of Spider-Man may want to know that you can now enable Spider-Man dynamic content on Alexa-enabled devices. Amazon described it as adding new skill to your device in which, when enabled, will let you use the Spider-Man invocation word in addition to the usual Alexa to learn more about the wall-crawler. You can, for examples, say “Alexa, ask Spider-Man for my countdown,” or “Alexa, ask Spider-Man for today’s update.” So, as you can see, you will have ask Alexa to ask Spider-Man which is kind of lame, but it will be probably fun for the first ten seconds. Definitely a novelty and not nearly as cool as Star Trek wake word, “Computer.” Continue reading You Can Now Enable Spider-Man Skill On Alexa-enabled Devices
In yet another prove that lighted drones are here to replace traditional fireworks as the light show of choice, Intel, together with NFL, Pepsi and Lady Gaga, pulled off the first-ever drone integration during a televised event during the Super Bowl event on Sunday, February 5, 2017. The result is as expected: spectacular, made even fantastic by the Lady’s unequivocal stage presence and performance. Mind you, I do not in anyway worship Lady Gaga, but I am not going to lie, as a normal being, I sometimes can’t help but to jive to her tunes.

If you have played VR games before, you will find that you are actually quite ‘helpless’ in the sense that you are not in control with your hands. While it seems that’s how it is for now, a Philippine-based mobile apps and games developer, KLab Cyscorpions, beg to differ. The outfit has launched three VR mobile games that will allow your hands to take part in the game, but there’s a catch here: you will need more than one smartphone to enjoy this industry’s first. The three games are Road KillZ, a drive-the-car-to-kill-zombies driving game, RoarZ VR, a first-person-shooter game with the goal of, you guessed it, eliminating zombies, and finally, there’s the sports simulation game called Headshot VR where head butting incoming soccer ball is what you need to do.
