Razer acquires OUYA officially

Razer acquires OUYA officially

In a move that'll likely put them in competition direct with the likes of NVIDIA, Razer has acquired Android console-maker OUYA. This tiny machine - the OUYA - was created back before Android TV was a reality, making headway in the "Android console" space before Android was prepared to live in the living room.

And by big, we mean aerial stunts that probably have no place in a commercial passenger jet.

In a footage of a practice flight, the blue and white jet is show, among other things, making a vertical takeoff that would have passengers' stomachs churning.

Halo 5 gets a Ford F-150 to celebrate release at E3

The Xbox One release of Halo 5: Guardians will be celebrating with their very own unique Ford F-150 truck. This truck will be popping up first - in the real world - at E3 2015, starting next week. This Ford F-150 Halo Sandcat, as it's called, is a one-of-a-kind vehicle. It's inspired by the aesthetics of the Halo game's United Nations Space Command vehicle, and - unlike that vehicle - is prepared to roll through the real streets in the real world. While this truck isn't prepared for production at the moment, anything is possible.

Marvel’s Ant-Man TV spot might make you think it’s a comedy

Marvel’s Ant-Man TV spot might make you think it’s a comedy

In about a month's time, the world will be treated to another Marvel Cinematic Universe serving, so close to Avengers: Age of Ultron. But if the latest released TV ad for Marvel's Ant-Man is any indication, there's little worry that it will get overshadowed by the bigger blockbuster hit.

This time, however, Marvel seems to have pulled all the stops, placing a punchline almost every 20 seconds or so in this 60 second trailer.
