Retailers Shed Some Light on Nintendo 3DS Game Prices

Retailers Shed Some Light on Nintendo 3DS Game Prices

The Nintendo 3DS is official, now in Japan, the United States, and Europe -- with pricing finally uncovered. Nintendo also announced that they will have upwards of 30 games available after the 3D gaming unit's launch, leading up to E3. However, the company is being quite on which titles are actually going to be considered "launch titles." Furthermore, Nintendo isn't opening up on pricing for those titles, either. But, a quick search over videogame retailers may provide a pretty clear answer.

Ocean Empire Super Yacht is Self-Sustainable, Costs $17 Million

Ocean Empire Super Yacht is Self-Sustainable, Costs $17 Million

$17 million for a self-sustainable super yacht may seem like a steal to some people. But, as many yachts have proven in the past, it's all about the features on board that make the price make more sense. For the Ocean Empire, being called the first-ever zero carbon life support vessel isn't good enough. No, the designers wanted to make sure that there's plenty of eco-friendly elements, along with plenty of room for people to live their day-to-day lives on board.

7,000 Students in Florida Public School District Enrolled in Virtual Classrooms

Trying to save costs is part of a business. No matter the business, saving money, so that money can be spent in other key areas, is the way the world turns. For teachers, unfortunately, it usually means that something gets cut. We've already seen other countries try to use telepresence robots to cut back costs, and now here in the United States it seems that children are being enrolled in virtual classrooms at a pretty staggering rate.

Microsoft Looking to Bring Kinect Drivers and SDK to Windows

Microsoft Looking to Bring Kinect Drivers and SDK to Windows

Since the launch of Microsoft's peripheral, Kinect, it's been flying off the shelves. And while casual gamers are enjoying the device, it's also been getting a lot of attention from the types that like to do things on their own. The Kinect has been used to let a robot help you work out, and even help in surgery. The hacks are certainly all over the place, and while Microsoft wasn't particularly warm to the idea at first, the company is certainly enjoying the idea now. So much so, in fact, that it may turn out the company is getting ready to deliver official drivers, and a software developer's kit (SDK) for Windows.

HP Touchpad Trademark Filed, Possible Tablet Name?

With all this talk about HP and Palm's upcoming tablets, perhaps it's just a coincidence that the company has officially filed for a new trademark that, for all intents and purposes, screams out "tablet."

This particular dashboard update, while bringing back to the "Boot-to-Disc" option, is meant for one thing, and one thing only: to stop pirates from using the Xbox 360 console. And, if forum members are any indicator, it looks like Microsoft has been successful so far.

Doctors in Germany Create Swallowable, Remote-Controlled Stomach Submarine

Doctors in Germany Create Swallowable, Remote-Controlled Stomach Submarine

Right now, doctors only have a couple of choices when it comes to looking into the human body. Trying to discover a person's ailment in their intestines is tough, as it usually means that an endoscopy has to happen. Inputting a camera, connected to a long cable, down someone's throat isn't always what a patient is looking forward to, and the alternative isn't any better. And while capsules with cameras in them exist today, it's hard for doctors to see what's happening inside, as the movement is controlled by the person's innards. But, doctor's from Germany are looking to change that with a new remote-controlled capsule that can be swallowed.
