Real life first-person zombie shooter pops up on Chatroulette

Turns out, if you still use Chatroulette, the website that matches you and your webcam up with a random stranger, you may not always be shown someone doing something obscene.

That's exactly what happened when random users were paired with the British film production crew Realm Pictures, who managed to create a live-action FPS that plays out in real-time right before viewers.

Fortunately the company has followed through on its promise, releasing the patch right away.

Man flies through tiny mountain crevasse wearing wingsuit

E1: the smallest micro 4/3 interchangeable lens 4K camera

Smartphones have somewhat put digital cameras on notice, but a new shooter might be turning the tables on mobiles.
