Hardware specification for BlackBerry Hamburg leakedAn Android powered BlackBerry handset bearing model number STH100-x and codenamed Hamburg has been spotted at the GFXBench site with all its hardware details.Considering the specs, the device seems to fit in the mid-range segment of the smartphone market.Recently, BlackBerry CEO John Chen revealed the company has plans for two more Android devices coming by the end of 2016, without providing further details about them.Thanks to GFXBench we now have some idea about the features the BlackBerry Hamburg is equipped with.The operating system for BlackBerry Hamburg noted in the GFXBench is the latest Android Marshmallow version 6.0.1.The octa-core processor would be coupled with the Adreno 405 graphics unit.
The Tangible Media Group at MIT s Media Lab bucked the trend that bigger is better and used their l33t 3D printing skills to produce a 3D-printed micro-pillar object they call Cilllia.Standard CAD software is not set up to print hair-like strands of material, so the team had to start from the ground up by building a custom software program.With the software out of the way, the researchers began experimenting with their printing system, and used it to generate a variety of different hair-like items.The cilia can be printed in any hair shape at a range of thicknesses, with the smallest strands measuring an impressive 50 micrometers.The researchers are developing ways of adding mechanical adhesions, actuators, and even sensors to the final product.In another application, they printed a micro-pillar mat of cilia that could detect the touch of a finger and respond to different swiping patterns.
I m aiming to keep the staff less than 100 people, Kojima explained.He alluded to huge, Hollywood productions where more than 1,000 people can work on the same film, which can end up muddling the final product because not everyone is able to be on the same page.With a team of 100, Kojima can have direct lines of communication with everyone working under him and maintain a coherent vision for the project, which is particularly important for an auteur designer such as himself.During the discussion, he mentioned that as he is assembling developers and technology, he is also touring other studios around the world to get inspiration about what kind of studio he wants to make/create.Soon after formally announcing his departure from Konami, he announced that his new studio, Kojima Productions — not to be confused with his defunct Konami-owned studio, also called Kojima Productions — had lined up an exclusive agreement with Sony to launch a brand new franchise on the PlayStation 4.Despite a fraught development process and what felt like an unfinished second act, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was a stunning testament to Kojima s decades as a designer, and easily one of the best games of 2015.
Any Star Wars fan can probably tell you about all the times where they pretended to fly around their X-Wings and TIE fighters, pretending to have epic battles between them.One group decided it was high time that they make their own Star Wars battle with a few drones.They strapped cameras onto their X-Wing and TIE fighters, and even added some special effects to really capture the essence of the dogfight.The end product is around four minutes long, and worth every second of watching.This battle took cues from the ones from the movie, and despite the low budget, it looks fantastic.You'll get to see some of the different drones that were actually used and made specifically for filming, as well as their progress from idea to working concept, to final product.
Warcraft Movie Review RoundupAfter spending years in development hell, the Warcraft movie is finally coming to theaters early next month.Featuring quite possibly the largest budget ever for a movie based on a video game, Warcraft is likely expected to counteract years of misguided attempts to bring popular game franchises to the big screen.SEE ALSO: Watch Chewbacca mom take James Corden to work and freak out meeting J.J. AbramsBefore we jump straight into the negative, let s take a look at some of the less critical reviews from critics who found something to enjoy during their viewings.Variety s Geoff Berkshire was far less forgiving, and his review features my personal favorite quote about the movie that I ve read so far: Boasting more than 2,000 visual effects shots, it s dispiriting to think about the time, energy, planning and precision that went into Warcraft when the final product brings to mind those animated advertisements for iPhone app games.Finally, we have a gamer s perspective from Jason Schreier at Kotaku.On the other hand, if you were expecting director Duncan Jones to spark a renaissance for video game movies, you re likely in for a major disappointment.
This week both HP and MSI have revealed Backback PCs - computers that act like desktops but fit on your back, preparing you for a full-range, untethered VR experience.Specifically with the HTC Vive, a VR headset which allows you to move around in space in "room scale VR", users - and game developers - have been wishing to cut the cord.Oddly enough, HP also found that the number of people wishing for the cord to disappear from the headset for fear of tripping was nowhere near the amount of people who actually tripped on said cord.The cord - the bundle of cords, that is - is currently so present in the experience that it's difficult to forget to watch out for it.Essentially this was a high-powered gaming laptop attached to a couple of backpack straps made specifically for said laptop.At this time there's only a TINY image of the pack available - we'll see more soon.
This backpack PC works with enough processing power to run an HTC VIVE VR headset and comes with replaceable batteries - or swappable batteries, if you prefer - to keep you inside the VR zone potentially forever.Unfortunately you're not going to be able to just go to your local PC shop and buy this piece of machinery.HP wanted us to make CERTAIN to let you know that this was NOT a finalized consumer product.You'd think that wasn't still a factor since the acquisition was so long ago - but the logo is still there, and a general feel for the brand is still there if not the team, just the feel .Other things this Omen X VR PC Pack is:• Less than 10 pounds• Optimized for cool running• Works with 2 "super high output batteries" to run VR without throttling performance• Has a 1-hour battery life without swapping • Swappable batteries at device's belt, built-in battery to stay on while swapping belt batteries• Comes with wireless display, keyboard, mouse for Windows• Not a final productInside you'll find the "latest Intel quad-core i5/i7 processors as well as up to 32GB DDR4 RAM.HP is planning on doing demonstrations within the next month.
According to the HP slides, the Omen brand targets the performance gamer with an emphasis on delivering maximum gaming performance per dollar.Based on a brief overview provided to Digital Trends by HP, this developer kit includes two USB Type-A ports, two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, one HDMI port, one audio combo jack, one DC output jack for headphone power, two battery DC input jacks, and one DC input jack for connecting the desktop to a wall outlet.The hardware is housed inside a rounded back chassis with a checkered triangular pattern on the side facing away from the user s back.Also note that Oculus VR actually recommends desktops with three USB 3.0 ports and a USB 2.0 port, along with HDMI output, meaning Oculus Rift owners might not achieve the optimum experience when using the Omen X backpack PC.Given this model is indeed a developer kit, HP has no idea when a final product will be shipped to consumers.However, a representative told Digital Trends that the company will begin showing the VR backpack in demos within the next month.
The final design for Tesla's Model 3 will be complete in just a few weeks, Tesla's CEO Elon Musk said during Vox Media's Code Conference on Wednesday.While the design will be complete in just a few weeks, the company will likely not show off the final product to the public until much later this year.The Model 3 is slated to go into production by the end of 2017, a deadline that some say is ambitious considering the company's past history of delays."We want to do the opposite of what we did with the X, which is make something that is a lot simpler, but still a car that people will love, and every design decision is factoring in the manufacturability," he said.Follow us on Facebook and Twitter.More from Tech Insider:Elon Musk wants to land humans on Mars within 9 yearsThe MacArthur Foundation is giving away $100 million for one great ideaElon Musk said he doesn't see Google as a competitor in the driverless car raceHere's how Draco Malfoy's family looks 9 years after the 'Harry Potter' booksWhat it's like inside the only permanent undersea research lab in the worldNOW WATCH: Here s what it s like to drive the Tesla Model X — 'the best car ever according to Elon MuskLoading video...
Overwatch hero Winston in a promo still for the game BlizzardOverwatch is a hit.Blizzard called the release "one of the most successful global launches of all time" in a statement, but given there's no solid sales data it's hard to say what metrics it is basing that on.In our review we called the game "an instant classic" that "could prove the go-to shooter for an entire generation of gamers."It has also been revealed that those seven million players have switched characters 326 million times and delivered 11 million payloads in the game mode that sees teams fighting to move or prevent the moving of a payload through one of the game's maps.We're ecstatic to have had such a successful launch, and we're looking forward to all of the fun, competition, and new content still to come."The success of Overwatch seemed inevitable after 9.7 million people played the open beta in May, which included much of the final product and essentially acted – like so many other betas nowadays – as a demo of the final product.
We've seen what it can do, but there's just one problem: We have no idea what its headset looks like.On Tuesday, we thought we got the first glimpse at Magic Leap's hardware.Just a day prior, a new design patent had been published by the United States Patent and Trademark Office — it looks like this:That was spotted by Quartz.But as it turns out, the images in the patent are "not at all representative of what our product will look like," according to Magic Leap's VP of public relations, Andy Fouché.Fouché provided the following statement to Tech Insider regarding the patent's images:This is part of our R and experience validation, and is not at all representative of what our product will look like.Pretty definitive.Unfortunately, there's still no indication of when Magic Leap plans on releasing its hardware to the public, or what it looks like, or how it will work, or... really anything beyond effusive praise from the handful of folks who've tried it and are allowed to speak about their experience.We tried asking Fouché for a description of the headset, of course, and were shot down.He instead pointed to one of the two pieces where a journalist tried a prototype — in speaking with the MIT Tech Review, Magic Leap CEO Rony Abovitz described the company's final product as "a glasses-like wearable device.More from Tech Insider:HBO just released 5 new photos from the next episode of 'Game of Thrones'This mind-blowing infographic shows the incredible depth of the earth's oceansThis gorgeous new game lets you hack anything in a massive re-creation of San FranciscoThe iPhone is the perfect metaphor for this ongoing ecological disasterYou may need to change your Facebook or Netflix password — but not because they were hacked FB, NFLX NOW WATCH: Everything we know about the iPhone 7Loading video...
Unlike most of the VR and AR headsets we've seen, the filing posted on the US Patent and Trademark Office shows a device that looks more like a helmet than a pair of goggles.The patent was filed with the USPTO on May 14 2015 and approved yesterday, June 7.Given Magic Leap's super-secretive nature, it's a particular exciting find for tech enthusiasts: we know the company is busy working on various bits of augmented and virtual reality technology, which we've garnered from various video demoes it's uploaded to YouTube and elsewhere.Evidence of hardware, however, remains tantalisingly scarce.At the same time, Andy Fouche, Magic Leap's vice president of public relations, was quick to point out to Mashable that the patent drawings look "not at all what our final product will look like," plunging its VR headset back into mystery.And, given the enthusiastic backing from the likes of Google, Alibaba and Warner Bros, Magic Leap's clearly doing something we should be keeping an eye out for.
Even if the upcoming Suicide Squad is a bust at the box office, its production has been such a saga that it may one day make for an entertaining documentary.From Jared Leto sending dead rats and condoms to his co-workers, to the cast tattooing each other, to the consternation over the look and feel of almost every one of the film s characters, it has been a wild ride.The movie continued to make news Wednesday when ScreenCrush reported that the Motion Picture Association of America MPAA has officially branded Suicide Squad with a PG-13 rating, citing sequences of violence and action throughout, disturbing behavior, suggestive content and language.In a vacuum, this wouldn t necessarily be noteworthy, but with everyone trying to get a handle on what the heck this movie will look like when it actually hits theaters, the rating looms larger than usual.Remember, this was a film that was supposedly dark enough to necessitate an on-set therapist.Of course, there s also the possibility that it was never really all that dark to begin with.
According to these rumors prototype MacBooks had been spied that were fitted with an OLED strip across the top of the keyboard where the function keys would normally sit.The cool thing about replacing keys with an OLED touch sensitive strip is that the buttons on an OLED can be customized depending on what you are doing.A slew of renderings have now turned up showing what the final product might look like.The renderings are well done and appear to dovetail nicely with the leaked chassis that we have already spied in photos.The 3D renderings show a customizable section that can change what you see to match the app running, Spotify fans will see buttons for controlling playback for instance.We have seen a slick little keypad called the Optimus Pultius in the past that replaced printed keys with multiple little OLED screens.

Scene from Lucasfilm Magic Leap movie on Youtube. The two companies plan to set up a laboratory for joint research at the Lucasfilm campus in San Francisco. The hope is to create a completely new medium, writes VentureBeat. The future of mixed reality and immersive entertainment is extremely light and we are honored to work with Magic Leap surrounding the creation of the future, commented Kathleen Kennedy, director of Lucasfilm.

The best case Sony can make for PlayStation VR, its PlayStation 4-compatible virtual-reality headset, is that it can bring games to the medium that other VR hardware manufacturers can t. At E3 2016, Sony showed off a bevy of exclusive VR demos for tie-ins to some of gaming s biggest franchises, including something called the Final Fantasy XV VR Experience, a VR tie-in of sorts for the upcoming action-RPG.As Prompto, you back up the rest of the FFXV party by repeatedly firing your pistol at the Behemoth until it dies.Shooting the beast s head and tail does more damage than hitting its body, so there is an incentive to aim precisely at moving targets.In general, however, the experience feels like a facsimile of a video game: It isn t entirely clear that anything you do would affect how the demo behaves.With actual mechanics and a firm win-state, instead of an ending, the experience is certainly slightly more game-like than many of technical demos shown to demonstrate the capacity of virtual reality headsets, such as Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.Members of the development team told Digital Trends that this fall, the game will not launch alongside PlayStation VR, which will come out shortly after Final Fantasy XV, and that the E3 demo may not represent the final product.
