Adventure Time Game Wizard: DIY game building made super simple

Adventure Time Game Wizard: DIY game building made super simple

This week the folks at Cartoon Network are bringing some heat to the mobile gaming worlds of both iOS and Android. They're bringing a game by the name of Adventure Time Game Wizard - working with the Adventure Time cartoon series as a theme and the old-school side-scrolling skeleton of the original Mario Bros as innards. Here we're finding just about the easiest-to-work-with platform for creating game levels we've ever seen. With the added bonus of Adventure Time, of course - that only makes things more slap-happy!

Jeep Cherokees under investigation following fires

Jeep Cherokees under investigation following fires

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating 2015 Jeep Cherokee SUVs following complaints about fires in the engine compartment. About 50,415 Cherokees are being probed as part of the preliminary investigation, which will look into a possible defect that has caused multiple newer Cherokees to go up in flames for no readily discernible reason. The NHTSA is said to also have some field report data from an Early Warning Reporting program on the matter which will be factored in.

LG G Flex 2 hands-on – A curveball keeper

LG G Flex 2 hands-on – A curveball keeper

I guarantee that the first time you hold the LG G Flex 2 in your hand, you're going to ask yourself why aren't there more phones with a curved display. And that's LG's hook. Instead of making you read this entire hands-on to really know how I feel about the G Flex 2 (though, you know, you really should read it anyway), I'm going to just come right out and tell you that it's beautiful to look at and it's beyond comfortable to hold. I'm not just saying this just because this is another new device coming to market but because, for the first time in a while now, I feel that LG has hit a home run.

Elgato Avea Bluetooth LED Bulb Review

Elgato Avea Bluetooth LED Bulb Review

The democratization of the smart home continues, and nowhere is it more visible than in color-changing wireless light bulbs like Elgato's Avea. Pairing Bluetooth Smart with multi-color LEDs and a simple iPhone and iPad app to command them all from across the home, Avea isn't the first such bulb to the market, but with a street price of around $39.95 it's certainly one of the more affordable options. Beyond questions of whether remotely-controlled bulbs are actually necessary, then, has Elgato made a hue-killer or just another flash in the pan? Read on for my full review.

1989 Batmobile replica is functional and street-legal

1989 Batmobile replica is functional and street-legal

Batmobile replicas are nothing unusual -- they've been popping up for years, some of them going up for auction for generous sums of money, such as the one we saw last year. An Australian man has created his own replica, and it brings with it a unique twist: it is completely street legal, letting him drive it around wherever he'd like. Even better, the creator -- 29-year-old Zac Mihajlovic -- works with Make-A-Wish to dress up like Batman and let kids meet their favorite superhero in real life.

Samsung showcases flexible batteries, ready in a few years

Samsung showcases flexible batteries, ready in a few years

Just when you thought the hype around curved and flexible devices is over, here comes Samsung somewhat trying to fan the flames again. At the InterBattery 2014 exhibit in Seoul, Korea, the electronics manufacturer is boasting of one of the fruits of its fantabulous R&D budget and marketing prowess. A flexible battery, one that can perhaps go along with a flexible screen, is the latest masterpiece of the Korean OEM, but don't go expecting to see it in consumer devices within the next few years.

The camera will be arriving in time for the holiday season, though an exact launch date hasn't been provided yet.

DREDD mini-movies: EP Adi Shankar confirms pseudo-sequels

DREDD mini-movies: EP Adi Shankar confirms pseudo-sequels

Last year Adi Shankar first mentioned that he’d like to create at least one more DREDD movie, no matter how it’d have to be made. Here and now, Shankar confirms that his project is a go. Not an official feature-length DREDD 2, but something stranger. Like some of the other short odd projects Shankar has created over the past couple of years, DREDD will continue with this man with the Dark Judges. Not necessarily having anything to do with Karl Urban or Judge Dredd himself, The Four Dark Judges come from a parallel dimension - and they’re especially nasty.

Ubuntu Touch on Meizu MX4 Pro sighted, still a possibility

Ubuntu Touch on Meizu MX4 Pro sighted, still a possibility

Back in February, Canonical promised that its phone-centric Ubuntu Touch will be making its way to actual retail smartphones later this year. But Canonical promises many things and with the year coming to a close, it seems that that promise might either be delayed or, worse, broken entirely. But behold, a device bearing the likeness of the Meizu MX4 but also bearing within it Ubuntu's mobile OS has just been spotted, fanning the flames of hope of a still possible Ubuntu phone soon.

First ever ‘soft’ robot is frighteningly cool

First ever ‘soft’ robot is frighteningly cool

Robotics seem like a great idea, but there’s always that Terminator scenario in the back of our minds. “What if the machines really do become self-aware?”, we ask silently while grinding our teeth to avoid bawling like scared children. If the machines someday do push us to the brink of extinction, it might be this one that ultimately seals our fate.
