Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge promo image leaked

It's just a few days before Samsung finally reveals what it really has in mind for the sixth generation of its Galaxy S flagship. And while we've had up to here with leaks, rumors, and official teasers, it wouldn't hurt to have one more right?

Virtual Reality will “change the world”, so says Tim Sweeney

Tim Sweeney is the founder and CEO of Epic Games, the creators of Unreal Engine gaming software. Based purely on the demonstration of the Unreal Engine 4 engine software running on the Oculus Rift DK2 and Crescent Bay, we'd say Epic Games knows exactly what's possible in the Virtual Reality universe. Sweeny himself suggests that next year is going to be a "watershed time for VR," and that we've essentially only scratched the surface of what's possible in this VR headset realm.

Finally! Xbox One, meet Screenshots

Sometimes, they even ruin for everyone — or are annoyed when the show doesn’t mimic the books exactly. With the TV show outpacing the slow pace with which George R.R. Martin pens the book series, it seems things are about to change. A lot.

Interstellar’s black hole code leads to real science

Interstellar’s black hole code leads to real science

To achieve the effect of a black hole in the film Interstellar, Christopher Nolan worked with real physicist Kip Thorne to depict scientifically-sound images. Thorne and a team at Double Negative Visual Effects worked to create a new code to solve the equation for visualizing light beams as seen from a viewer as they approach a black hole. This has never been done before. While previous studies have been performed at great distances and with light rays, this system bundled light beams together to create an image that was realistic, beautiful, and scientifically sound.

Next ISS crew pose as Jedi in official group photo

Next ISS crew pose as Jedi in official group photo

They will boldly go where other men have gone before. Or are we mixing up pop culture references. After all, it's not that easy to think of Jedi Knights and the almost magical Force when you think about astronauts. But that is exactly what the Expedition 45 crew bound for the International Space Station later this year did for their official photo, donning the robes, and weapons, of the Jedi order with the slogan "The Science Continues" set in the style of a Star Wars film.
