Game developers bullish about Australian tax break bill

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2087 days, 13 hours, 31 minutes ago
Thursday, July 07, 2011 10:20:50 AM GMT
Game Developers Association of Australia CEO Tony Reed is, as you might imagine, a big fan of the $1.9 billion tax break for video game research and development that's making its way through the nation's government. Speaking to Gamespot, Reed explained, "No matter how big or small a studio is, this is the kind of thing that will encourage development. It is designed with our own independence, creativity, and innovation in mind." (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2087 days, 13 hours, 32 minutes ago
Thursday, July 07, 2011 10:20:20 AM GMT
We're still having a hard time figuring out the pros of something like this, but researchers at the Hasso Plattner Institute at Potsdam University in Germany have created an interesting new way to control your touchscreen phone. If you're willing to lug around a giant camera helmet thing, then you might just be able to control your iPhone from you pocket using this creation called the "iPalm". (more)

John Carmack Gives Thumbs Up for Wii U

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2087 days, 13 hours, 33 minutes ago
Thursday, July 07, 2011 10:18:53 AM GMT
In a recent interview with IndustryGamers, id Software technical director John Carmack seemingly gave a thumbs up for the Nintendo Wii U console. In fact, he said it should be a "slam dunk" in bringing the id Tech 5 engine to the upcoming platform. But don't get your hopes up just yet – Wii U support isn't exactly an official deal until Carmack gets his hands on an actual unit. (more)

Google Maps Transit Navigation beta for Android hands-on (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2087 days, 13 hours, 35 minutes ago
Thursday, July 07, 2011 10:16:58 AM GMT
Earlier this afternoon, Google pushed Maps v5.7 to the Android Market. The app's Transit Navigation (beta) feature brings GPS stop-by-stop nav to public transit systems in over 400 cities around the world, helping you find the subway or bus stop, then letting you know exactly when to get off as you ride. There are obvious benefits to using this in a foreign city, where alert-enabled (English!) directions could potentially save you hours of frustration. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2087 days, 13 hours, 36 minutes ago
Thursday, July 07, 2011 10:16:21 AM GMT
We suppose it's not every company that can stake their reputations on Bluetooth headsets alone. BlueAnt, a brand best known for its voice-controlled earpieces, is getting ready to ship a headset of the wired persuasion. What you see up there is the Embrace, a pair of comfy-looking on-ear headphones with leather pads, an integrated mic, and iPhone-compatible controls that let you make calls and play, pause, and skip audio tracks.

Japanese TORo II gallops ahead at a mechanical snail's pace (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2087 days, 13 hours, 36 minutes ago
Thursday, July 07, 2011 10:15:51 AM GMT
Snails with benefits? Our salt shaker might disagree. But some enterprising engineers over at Japan's Chuo University managed to turn this garden-variety pest into fodder for mechatronic inspiration. Based on the gastropod's preferred method of 'galloping' -- wherein waves of foot-to-head muscle contractions propel it forward -- researchers at the Mechatronics Lab created TORo II, an omnidirectional robot that could make its way to a hospital near you.

New Dota challenger Rise of Immortals goes into open beta

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2088 days, 14 hours, 52 minutes ago
Wednesday, July 06, 2011 9:00:12 AM GMT
Petroglyph Games' Rise of Immortals has entered into an open beta, meaning that you can now try out this new entry into the growing Defense of the Ancients-based (sometimes called Moba) genre for yourself. Register an account on the official site, download the game client and you're good to play. Winning, on the other hand, will probably take longer than that, as these games aren't known for their smooth learning curves, especially if you're not familiar with the premise. (more)

Gartner says video games will pull in $74 billion this year alone and are projected to rake in a staggering $115 billion a year by 2015, thanks in large part to mobile gaming. (more)

Power Consumption Solved: Magnetic Processors

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2088 days, 14 hours, 54 minutes ago
Wednesday, July 06, 2011 8:57:33 AM GMT
The basic idea is to simply eliminate the flow of electrons, the ultimate source of power consumption. Researchers at the University of California at Berkeley said that magnetic processors could work without the need of electrons and function near the minimum power limit allowed by the second law of thermodynamics (Landauer limit).

Sick and tired of your pathetic little mousepad? Why not check out the WarPad? It's a massive 16.97 by 13.98 inch surface designed to rid your gaming marathons of mousing friction and the vague discomfort that comes with having the palm of your hand rest on the edge of the pad. The WarPad accomplishes the latter by clipping to the edge of your desk and slowly tapering off the side. XFX's massive single-player gaming mousepad can also slide back and forth on your desk, when you need to make some more room... (more)
