CES 2013 - LEGO Announces New Android-Compatible Mindstorms EV3 Kit For Programmable Robot-Building Nerdgasms


Filip Reznicek | 8:35 PM | , , , ,

There aren't many things in this world that can be as purely amazing as LEGO. The only people who aren't fans of the world's best creativity toy are people who (mistakenly!) think the company has sold out and encourages kids to follow pre-made instructions instead of building something new. To that I say: Mindstorms EV3. With Android compatibility out of the box. Your argument is invalid.
2013-01-07_11h37_50
The main part of the new kit, the Intelligent Brick (seen above as a glowing torso with a QR code on its chest) will have more processing power, more memory, and more on-brick programming capabilities. It will also have a new infrared sensor, Linux-based firmware, a USB port and SD card slot. This thing comes fully loaded. If that wasn't enough, though, this kit will include "full... Android compatibility out of the box."
Previously, you could use Android to control some Mindstorms kits, but the popular MINDdroid app was merely a fan-made piece of software. This new set will require no special tweaks or hacks in order to get it working. However, every other kind of tweaking and hacking are highly encouraged.
This new set will go on sale in the second half of 2013 and will retail for $349 USD, €349 EUR or $399 CAD. There will also be a special version specifically designed to cater to educators, so teachers? Start lobbying whoever it is that you need to convince in order to get these in your classroom. For the children.

CES 2013 - Madfinger's Dead Trigger 2 For The Tegra 4


Filip Reznicek | 6:00 PM | , , , , , ,

NVIDIA slipped a surprise into their CES press conference this evening: a short and sweet look at Dead Trigger 2. As the only technical demo for the screaming Tegra 4 platform, it looked mighty impressive - based on the streaming video, the graphics look just a little behind the Xbox 360/Playstation 3 level. The short demo video showed live game video of the player wielding an M4 machine gun to dispatch an enormous building-sized zombie.

wm_IMG_0105wm_IMG_0106

Unfortunately, Madfinger wasn't on hand to elaborate, so anything beyond the brief look here is speculation. Based on the success of the original zombie shooter, they'll probably be using the same free-to-play model as before. Expect to hear more about Dead Trigger 2 at E3 at the very latest.

Update: Dead Trigger 2 will be released in the second quarter for Android and iOS. The full press release is below.

If Acer's recent entry into the "budget" tablet market – the Iconia Tab A110 – still wasn't light enough on the wallet for you, then maybe the company's latest offering will be. Announced just today, the Iconia Tab B1-A71 is a 7" slate with pretty meager specs, and a price tag to match:

1
While Acer hasn't announced when the B1-A71 will be available, it has said the tablet will be released with a price "under $150." Woo.
To go along with its new offering to the budget tablet world, Acer is also expanding its AcerCloud service to all Android and iOS mobile devices. Starting later this month, owners of Acer PCs will be able to dedicate a small portion of their hard drive for file sharing via AcerCloud, which includes documents, pictures, and music.

Steampunk Racing 3D v1.2


Filip Reznicek | 12:11 PM | , , , ,


Description: Don't just race...ANNIHILATE!
In the realm of steampunk racing domination and destruction is a way of life. Each day we risk death for the rewards and thrills of our chosen path. We are the racers, the heroes of our war torn world. Our vehicles shield us, our weaponry brings forth our vengeance, the world is our playground, and the corporations that run things are a necessary evil.
Set in a war-torn and steam-powered industrial world where your very survival depends any means necessary in a no-rules, high stakes, high impact, steam-powered death race. You'll need to choose and customize your vehicle like the 4-Wheel Armored Classic, Heavy Tank Tall Boy, Agile Delivery, 3-Wheel Scarab, Dozenberg, Drag Racer, Zeppelin, Rough Truckin', Brutal Wagon, or the 6-Wheel LG04-Ohzma; each with unique features and capabilities. You'll also need weapons and elemental powers because, let's face it: playing fair is just no fun. Teleport ahead of your enemies, engage force fields, blast your opponents energy with an EMP wave, turn the world upside down or create a gravity bubble with a Gravity Vortex, or deploy our most devastating weapons like missiles, chain guns, high-speed mines and tar, poison fields, fireballs, drone blimp-bombers, satellite ray beams, chainsaws, and vortex technology just to name a few.

As you race through your journey through the online tournament circuit, look for big sponsors to make more money but beware as corporations like A.R.B sponsors many racers and are suspected of fixing the races to seize power. Choose your side!
- Customizable vehicles with 30 weapons/abilities
- Unique physics engine allows for full range of control
- Realtime Multiplayer modes against 6 players world wide or on your lan
- Massive Online Tournaments
- personalize your online experience with facebook
- 3D

Did you miss NVIDIA's Tegra 4 unveiling last night? No worries, friends – you can now watch the whole event in its entirety right here. That's all sorts of babble about video cards, video games, the Tegra 4, Dead Trigger 2, and, of course, Project SHIELD in all of its handheld glory.

But, you probably already know all about that stuff – you did read all of our coverage last night, didn't you? I thought so. Check the video below.

 


CES 2013 - Polaroid Camera with Android JB


Filip Reznicek | 8:00 AM | , , ,

Not to be outdone by Nikon and Samsung, Polaroid has taken the wraps off of its new Android-powered camera, the iM1836. Past its super-clever and easy-to-remember (not really) name, this offering weds an 18.1MP mirrorless body, 3.5" display, and built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth with Android 4.1 for an out-of-the-box hoot of a good time.
1
While there's no tentative release date for the iM1836 right now, the camera is already tagged with a price of $399, which includes a 10-30mm lens. That's a pretty reasonable price for a mirrorless compact, especially considering its versatility over the competing offerings from Samsung and Nikon. We'll keep you posted as more info on this intriguing new shooter becomes available.

Google Play Paid Apps Are Finally Available In Egypt


Filip Reznicek | 5:00 AM | , , ,

Egyptian Android users, the day you've been waiting for has finally arrived... assuming that you've been waiting to hand over some pounds to hard-working app developers. Google has updated its list of paid app territories to include Egypt, so open the Play Store and gorge yourself on ad-free indulgences.


Previously Egyptian Android users could download apps from the Play Store, but only free titles. A long-standing petition at Change.org has called for access to paid apps, though there's no indication that the 54 signatures present spurred Google into action. Like most territories outside of the U.S. and western Europe, Egypt still does not have access to the wider Google Play Music, Google Play Movies, and Google Play Books libraries. Since delivering this content relies on licensing and not just infrastructure, it may be some time yet before the full Google Play lineup is made available.

CES 2013 - Huawei Unveils Its New Flagship Ascend D2


Filip Reznicek | 12:30 AM | , , , ,

For better or worse, five inches seems to be the new target for flagship Android devices. Huawei is bringing it's a game to CES (unlike most manufacturers, which are holding back for Mobile World Congress) with the Ascend D2, a new Jelly Bean 4.1 device sporting a 5-inch 1080p LCD panel and the in-house K3V2 1.5 GHz quad-core CPU. Other highlights include a 13MP camera (narrowly beating out Alcatel's One Touch Idol Ultra) and respectable 9.9mm waist. Stylistically, it looks a lot like a beefed-up Galaxy S II, minus the physical navigation buttons.
HUAWEI DEVICE ASCEND D2
Perhaps most importantly for power users, the Ascend D2 comes packed with a massive 3,000mAh battery, sliding in just below the Galaxy Note II in total capacity. Huawei claims that its ADRX (Automated Discontinuous Reception) battery technology will allow the D2 to charge in 30% less time and last six days on standby. Other notable specs include Gorilla Glass, an aluminum back cover, and white and blue color options. Android 4.1 looks like it's mostly undamaged, though Huawei couldn't resist putting a few custom icons in there.
Expect the Ascend D2 to launch in China later this month, with a Japanese rollout (and hopefully a worldwide launch) following. A smaller model, currently unseen and unnamed, will be available with a 4.7" screen option. Pricing information is not available at present.
