Some Hackers Built a Prosthetic Nerf Blaster That Fires by Flexing Your Arms!

 

BRUH! WHERE WAS THIS WHEN I WAS A KID! I had to use my hands like it was a baby’s toy! Anyway, this was done for a pretty good cause, though. A group of hackers at Hackerloop wanted to level the Nerf-fighting playing field for Nicholas Huchet, an individual who didn’t have a full arm, by building him a custom Nerf blaster prosthetic with the ability to automatically fire a projectile by simply contracting his forearm muscles. According to the Medium post, Hackerloop’s Valentin Squirelo chronicled the build in great detail, which included the use of custom 3D-printed parts, Arduino-based electronics, some electromyography sensors that could detect muscle movements, and — of course — a couple of hard-to-find Nerf Swarmfire blasters (hint: the blasters’ round design was VERY optimal for the build).

Milla Jovovich to Star in Live-Action ‘Monster Hunter’ Movie; is THIS why we can’t have nice things…

For the last two years or so (so, since around 2016), director, Paul W. S. Anderson — who’s directed two of my favorite films: Mortal Kombat and Event Horizon) has been working on a Monster Hunter movie. While I can now actually audibly hear you roll your eyes to the back of your head over the scoffing, we now also know that the film has a star, Anderson’s wife and actress Milla Jovovich. For your own safety I heavily recommend that you stop rolling your eyes further back; just looking out for you. Anyway, Variety reports that Anderson recently delivered the latest draft of the film’s script, and the Monster Hunter film adaptation will begin shooting this September in South Africa. It has also been reported that special effects studio Mr. X will be involved, having worked with Anderson on the special effects for the Resident Evil movies.

The eight-minute video above is something else.  It features the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, comprised of people in their 50s (or older), many of whom have likely never played a game in the Mega Man series, flawlessly perform theme songs from the games.  It is quite the amazing sight!

A full remake of Resident Evil 2…in Unreal Engine 3! WOW!

While Capcom is spinning its wheels on the series (although Resident Evil HD Remastered was prettybfreaking good and Resident Evil: Revelations 2 looks very promising), YouTube user Rod Lima has finished a complete remake of Resident Evil 2 in Unreal Engine 3, with the video above containing Claire’s A scenario from start to finish.

Fans Spent Six Years Making This Mega Man Game

Fans Spent Six Years Making This Mega Man GameMega Man fans aren’t just hardcore (Mega Man 3 FOR THE WIN), we are quite the dedicated bunch. What’s that? You want me to give you an example as to WHY?  Well, how about this awesome fan game that two (count ’em, TWO) people have been working on since 2008.  The game is called Mega Man: Revenge of the Fallen (and I know what you’re thinking; it’s NOT a Transformers reference). The subtitle is actually a reference to the game’s story, which involves the Robot Masters being revived by the evil (or misunderstood?) Dr. Wily, and they’re out looking for revenge on the Blue Bomber. Naturally (because VIDEO GAMES), it’s your job to stop them. Continue reading “Fans Spent Six Years Making This Mega Man Game”
