Hockey puck survives fire, ice, and now thermite

Hockey puck survives fire, ice, and now thermite

If you spend any time on the Internet at all, you’ve likely seen that now infamous red-hot ball of nickel burning its way through friend and foe alike: fruits, random objects, nothing has managed to stand in its way. That is, until it met a hockey puck. Turns out hockey pucks are able to do more than take a beating from hockey sticks — they hardly sizzle when paired with red hot destruction. As an act of revenge, perhaps, the nickel-bearer turned to a more destructive force — but, as you’ll see in the video after the jump, a hockey puck is not easily destroyed.

Minecraft for Hololens demo shows big virtual potential

While we've caught glimpses of Minecraft on the Microsoft HoloLens headset before, today is the first we've seen Microsoft pushing gaming specifically.

Mojang Brand Director - aka Mojang's "Director of Fun" Lydia Winters spoke up onstage this afternoon about how Minecraft would be jointing the fun in our collective living rooms. This game wont be played on a screen, it'll be played in three dimensions.

Dragon Quest Heroes arrives October 13 with Slime Edition

Dragon Quest Heroes arrives October 13 with Slime Edition

Finally, Square Enix has given a definite date to the next installment of Dragon Quest. Or, perhaps to be more technically correct, the next spin off. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the franchise next year, Square Enix will be releasing a DQ game that is both DQ and also not DQ. With a ridiculously long name, "Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below", will take some of the staples of the Dragon Quest series and inject some modern adrenaline-pumping sword-slashing action.

Inside Google Photos: A super-smart cloud for your memories

Inside Google Photos: A super-smart cloud for your memories

Google Photos isn’t the first cloud photo storage service, or the first media management platform, but first impressions suggest Google has raised the stakes with its smart new system. Announced at Google I/O today, and further detailed in a later session by Bradley Horowitz along with the rest of the Google Photos team, much of the near-magic is what’s going on behind the scenes, such as how it uses landmark recognition to fill in missing geotags, intelligently deals with diminishing storage on smartphones, and even differentiates dogs.

Predator wrist blade rehashed as functional replica

Predator wrist blade rehashed as functional replica

Man at Arms has released its latest video, and in it the team yet again recreated a from-a-movie weapon — in this case it was a Predator wrist blade. They're good sports about the whole process -- they have a "Predator" appear one day with a broken wrist blade and a request for it to be repaired. Thus begins the effort, which as always includes a lot of hammering, cutting, and fire (plus, you know, a healthy does of modern technology. The end product is, as we've come to expect, fully functional.

Samsung NX500 Review – the TARDIS of cameras

Samsung NX500 Review – the TARDIS of cameras

Is a bigger camera necessarily better? Or, put a different way, does a big sensor need to have a big body wrapped around it? Samsung would argue no, and the NX500 is its evidence. Distilling much of the NX1 into a form-factor only slightly larger than a point-and-shoot, it’s 28.2-megapixels of interchangeable lens camera with a 4K video recording bonus. Samsung can’t work miracles, mind, especially for $799 with a lens thrown in, and so there are some compromises to consider along the way.

Apple Watch Review – Controversially compelling

Apple Watch Review – Controversially compelling

To call the Apple Watch polarizing is to do the splenetic depths of online argument around it an injustice. For the past few weeks I’ve been living in the eye of that storm, the contentious wearable on my wrist. I’ve worked with it. I’ve traveled with it. I’ve exercised with it. I drew the line at showering with it, though Tim Cook says that’s okay too. And all along the way - well, perhaps not in the shower - people have asked me that one question no other Apple product has faced to quite the same extent: is the Apple Watch really worth it?

Cowboys vs. Dinosaurs movie revealed in new trailer

Cowboys vs. Dinosaurs movie revealed in new trailer

Perhaps we can blame Sharknado for the spike in ridiculous movies that don't go to too much effort hide their subpar production quality and overt tongue-in-cheek storylines. There's a dedicated fan base for such movies, and if you count yourself among them then you'll be glad to know there's yet another film of that sorts in the works: it's called Cowboys vs. Dinosaurs, and it is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. The film will be starring, among other, Eric Roberts.
