doom and game evolution

Filed under
Gaming

I just finished quake4, and I am playing (again) doom3 on Linux right now. It feels great – so if anyone wants to say that there are no games on Linux, I could just show the list of some of the games I played this year and found quite impressive:

Nexuiz
OpenArena
Doom3
Quake4
World of Goo (this one actually managed to keep me awake until 5am for a few days)
Caster
Cube

and, besides those, we still have wine which plays most of the games just fine (except some of the bleeding edge ones, and the ones which are hurt by the the-f**ing-hating-mouse-rotation-bug like call of duty 4).

But.. even with all that progress, I miss the good old games.

rest here

Lenovo Announces The Lenovo Cast, A $49 Miracast-Based Android To TV Screen Mirroring Puck

Unlike the Chromecast, which uses Google's proprietary casting technology, Lenovo Cast is built on Miracast and DLNA, the standards that are available in most modern Android devices (sometimes under the Miracast option and other times under Wireless Display). It completely mirrors your phone or tablet's display, acting like a wireless HDMI connection between them and the TV. On the downside, if your device's screen turns off you'll see nothing on the TV, but on the upside, Miracast is less reliant on WiFi networks so it should work where the Chromecast usually stumbles like hotel rooms for example.

Can Open-Source 3D Printing Make Custom Prostheses Affordable?

One exciting thing about 3D-printed prostheses is that the designs are all freely available open source and constantly evolving. Holmes-Siedle is particularly interested in tensioning, and the fishing wire that acts as tendons in the prosthetic hands. He made some changes to the basic design of Joe’s hand and within minutes of sharing his new designs online, other volunteers around the world were printing, testing and giving feedback on the adjustment. He’s now working on a new revision based on what he’s learned. Read more
