This morning the folks at Google's Daydream Labs have revealed two new VR experiences that may one day make their way to mobile. While previous teasers that've been released in this way have been centered on an HTC Vive demo experience, it's easy to see how one might end up using the Daydream controller to make these games a reality for mobile devices. For now, we can giggle and cross our fingers.

Elon Musk has banned hot tub talks about simulated existence

Elon Musk has banned hot tub talks about simulated existence

There's a chance we're all living in some super advanced simulation, but don't bring the topic up if you ever get the chance to join Elon Musk in a hot tub. Speaking at Recode’s Code Conference 2016, someone asked Musk a philosophical question about whether it’s possible we’re all living in a simulation — and Musk, as you might expect, has been asked this question many, many times. So many times that he had to ban it from the hot tub.

YouTube Red subscribers are getting free Chromecasts

YouTube Red subscribers are getting free Chromecasts

If you've not signed up for YouTube Red, you're not alone. Despite YouTube's offer to let people pay for the option of not having ads, most people would rather watch ads than pay. Or probably more correctly, people will rather block ads for free, than pay to not see them. But Google wants to reward some of those people who have signed up for the service.

Samsung’s Rollable Screen demo is not just a dream for Android

This week at the SID Display Week 2016 trade show we've gotten up close and personal with Samsung's new rollable screen, just one of several next-gen inventions in display technology. But this is just another in a long line of demos of such "transforming" or "curved display" tech from Samsung, LG, and the rest, right? Not so fast. Now that Samsung has proven their ability to deliver the goods with devices like the Galaxy Edge, the company is expected by the public to deliver on concepts like these with more speed. The time is now!

Facebook Live Video gets ‘continuous’ mode for non-stop broadcasting

Facebook Live Video gets ‘continuous’ mode for non-stop broadcasting

Facebook Live Video is great, but not if you want to give the world a 24/7 look at your hamster, backyard, or whatever you’ve got around that’s at least mildly interesting. That changes with Facebook’s new Continuous Live Video support launch, adding a non-stop broadcasting option to the social network’s live video platform. There is a downside, though — you won’t be able to save the videos for viewing later on.

The fireballs making surprise appearances in the sky have been happening in the U.S. lately (though the ones that crop up in Russia are usually much more exciting), and the latest one happened this week. The fireball was spotted by night owls in a few northeastern states, with most of the sightings seeming to come from the Boston region. The event was caught on camera by a few witnesses.

Google’s new ATAP movie moves when you move in a virtual vehicle

Brace yourself: there’s a new ‘Ghostbusters’ trailer

Brace yourself: there’s a new ‘Ghostbusters’ trailer

The new Ghostbusters movie will be in theaters soon, and ahead of that premiere comes a new trailer. Don't worry -- it's not terrible, though it's getting a bunch of hate anyway. The dark and brooding music is gone, replaced with the nostalgic tune we all love (it seems Sony learned from that fan edit). A bunch of clips from the first trailer are present, but there's a lot of new material, too.
