Splash Cars channels Splatoon for Android and iOS

Developer Craneballs releases game Splash Cars for iOS and Android, channeling the Nintendo Wii game Splatoon in the process.

Wilson X Connected Football hands-on: The IoT gets competitive

With the Super Bowl upon us, what better time to preview the latest in Wilson X's wirelessly-enabled sports tech, the Connected Football. Though it's stuffed with Bluetooth and a bevy of sensors, at first glance you'd be forgiven for mistaking it for a regular football but, as Wilson demonstrated when I met with them in San Francisco this week, it'll unlock a wealth of new data when it arrives in time for the 2016 season.

Think back to the fall of 2014, and you might remember mention of a sleep tracker Nintendo had in the works. The company had announced plans to develop a device that would track someone’s sleep data and how fatigued they are, something that would perhaps rest on a bed stand rather being on your wrist. Not much has been said about it since, and almost as quietly as it had announced it, Nintendo has shelved the project.

The crew at Epic Games have revealed an Unreal Engine VR editor for UE4 that places the developer within the level they're editing. Virtually.
