The upcoming Coachella and Lollapalooza music festivals have joined a growing number of festivals worldwide forbidding selfie sticks on the grounds.
Slightly Mad Studios has confirmed that players of its upcoming crowdfunded racing sim Project CARS will receive a series of free DLC vehicles in the months following the game’s release.
The first cab off the rank, so to speak, is one of the most exclusive and expensive cars ever made – the W Motors Lykan Hypersport.
“We are immensely pleased to have this awesome machine in the game and to give fans the chance to get behind the wheel of a truly amazing vehicle,” said creative director Andy Tudor on the Project CARS website. “The Lykan Hypersport represents the first of a series of free cars we’ll be giving away every month as a thank you to our fans for being so patient for the launch of the game. We’ll have more info on the full schedule of further content for Project CARS soon but we hope that this is a great sneak peek of just one way in which Project CARS is going to expand in the future.”
The crowdfunded biopic focused on the making of Kevin Smith’s Clerks has a trailer.
Announced last month, Shooting Clerks tells the story of Smith’s extraordinary journey to get his iconic low-budget film made back in 1994. The movie was crowdfunded on IndieGoGo by Kevin Smith fans Christopher Downie and Brett Murray, and is now set to premiere in September. Smith himself endorses the film, and will provide narration.
The trailer is a hell of a lot of fun, riffing on that very familiar Smith-esque style. Check it out below.

A new graphene lightbulb hopes to unseat traditional LED’s from their market dominance.

In some countries, the legislation is so strict, that cheaper incandescents are not only nowhere to be found, but illegal to import as well. Such … —> Read More
Microsoft has unveiled two new trailers for its upcoming sci-fi shooter, Halo 5: Guardians. Posted on the official Xbox YouTube account, the trailers confirm the game’s release date of October 27 this year on Xbox One.
The Xbox twitter account also posted tweets accompanying each trailer, with the text stating that they are two sides of the same story. One features Master Chief (embedded above) and the other features newcomer Spartan Locke (embedded below), who refers to Master Chief as “the one who was supposed to save us all.”
Last week Microsoft launched a “Hunt the Truth” teaser website for Halo 5: Guardians offering vague new details about the upcoming game. The site poses the question, “Who is the real Master Chief?” with an audio recording that parodies the popular Serial podcast.
It has been confirmed that Agent Locke would be a playable character in Halo 5, and that Cortana will make an appearance in the game. Halo 5: Guardians is in development at 343 Industries exclusively for Xbox One. Producer Josh Holmes recently confirmed that the game will use dedicated servers for all multiplayer, including custom games.

Yesterday morning, Xiaomi revealed a new teaser on Weibo, hinting at another possible product announcement that will be made at its fifth anniversary celebration event on March 31 i.e. tomorrow. The teaser was not very clear, but had the words TZC on top along with a image of a device which looked like an electronic scale. Today, we have some more information about this said device.
China’s Ubuntu team revealed earlier today that the words TZC was probably hinting at the new smart electronic weighing scale from the company. The images reveal that the device can be connected to phones running Android 4.4 or higher and iOS 7 or higher. The electronic scale can display weights between 5KG to 150KG and will be manufactured by China Information Technology Co. Ltd.
Looks wise, the scale will be white in color with smooth round edges. We don’t see any button on the top, but there will be the Mi logo at the center. However, another image reveals that the weight will be indicated using the LED lights on top of the device. We can clearly see that the scale is showing 51.8 Kg in the image.
Now, you must be wondering what does TZC mean. Well, in one image we can see that the model number of the device is XMTZC01HM, which is probably why we saw those letters on top of the teaser.
So, what do you think about this new smart scale from Xiaomi?

We are still more than six months away from the release of Halo 5: Guardians, but that hasn’t kept 343 Studios and Xbox from greasing up the hype train. This last week, the developer kicked off the Hunt the Truth campaign with a podcast and updates from a fictitious war journalist and photographer, Benjamin Giraud, who has been documenting the Master Chief’s successes in battle.
However, thanks to the Hunt the Truth campaign, it seems everything we know about Master Chief may be a lie. Instead, as we’re learning from Giraud, there’s something very sinister about the Halo warrior and his history. That notion was made more clear tonight when two new trailers were released during the season finale of The Walking Dead.
The above trailer shows Lieutenant Commander Jameson Locke, a Spartan super soldier, sharing a few final thoughts before preparing to …

VVV: “The other day I thought to myself “Hmm, it’s been a long time since I’ve fired up The Crew. Let’s take it for a spin.” And so I plugged my Thrustmaster T300 GTE into the PS4, started up the Crew and…nothing.
t first I was worried my T300 had bitten the dust, but it turns out the PS4’s V2.50 firmware update is to blame for rendering the Thrustmaster wheels incompatible with The Crew. The issue also affects the Thrustmaster T80 as well.
Fortunately, Thrustmaster has provided a temporary fix while they work with Ivory Tower and Sony on a patch update” —> Read More
Vice: Have you seen the latest advertising for the PlayStation 4? “The world’s most powerful console,” it boasts (not for the first time), chest puffed out, pair of socks stuffed brazenly down its trousers. But while this claim may be technically true from a numbers perspective, it’s also a little misleading. The Xbox One is hardly a wheezing Citroën 2CV compared to Sony’s Hummer, is it? This isn’t David and Goliath, or George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley. There isn’t, in all honesty, much disparity between the two. You might get to play Battlefield Hardline in 900p on PS4 as opposed to the Xbox’s 720, but is this a gulf in output worth losing sleep over? Not unless you’re extremely precious about things that don’t actually matter, or you’re twelve.
This generation’s “console war” is built on the untruth that there’s a fundamental difference between the Big Two. Bar a few exclusive titles, there isn’t. It was the same with the last generation. And the one before that. In fact, t… —> Read More
AMC gave fans a very brief glimpse at their upcoming companion series Fear the Walking Dead during tonight’s season five finale of The Walking Dead. The teaser video is only sixteen seconds long and shows next to nothing, but here you go:
The cast includes Cliff Curtis (Missing, Live Free or Die Hard), Kim Dickens (Gone Girl, Sons of Anarchy), Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince), and Alycia Debnam Carey (Into the Storm).
Fear the Walking Dead’s first season will consist of six one-hour episodes and premiere on AMC late this summer. The show’s second season will air in 2016.
The idea of passive housing — basically, well-insulated buildings that don’t require a ton of energy to heat and cool — is certainly not a new one. Standards for passive housing have been around for 25 years in Europe, but they are only now starting to catch on stateside.
