Analogue has been making great-quality recreation video game consoles for reliving our favorite old-school games via modern technology. So far, they’ve released the Analogue Nt and the more-compact Nt mini (for playing NES and Famicom games) and the Super Nt (for playing your old Super Nintendo games). While they come in at a premium price, there’s good reason for it; they rely on an field programmable gate array — or FPGA — technology rather than the common route of emulation found in most other retro clone systems. Now, Analogue is taking the next logical step and are announcing the the Mega Sg, which will be compatible with your Genesis, Mega Drive, and Master System cartridges. Plus, you’ll be able to connect your original Sega CD and Mega-CD add-on systems. SCORE! Continue reading “Analogue announces the ‘Mega Sg”, a.k.a., the PREMIUM Sega Genesis clone console…”

Lake Worth, Florida Has Been Accidentally Sending Out Zombie Alert Messages Since Hurricane Irma.

Yup. You read that correctly. However in reality, this is both funny and not funny. When you think of things that shouldn’t be messed around with, one of them is DEFINITELY public alert systems.  Unfortunately, warning systems haven’t had the best year, ranging from the false emergency alert from Hawaii accidentally informing the public of an incoming missile that didn’t exist to the Department of Justice’s Amber Alert … Continue reading Lake Worth, Florida Has Been Accidentally Sending Out Zombie Alert Messages Since Hurricane Irma.

Did Your PC Freeze? Try This Windows Hotkey BEFORE Restarting Your PC…

In case your Windows PC ever freezes, you actually DON’T have to restart the computer. It turns out that Windows has a generally unknown keyboard shortcut that restarts your video drivers, which is basically what you could try to fix freezes that would otherwise need a forced restart. What this key combination does is restart the graphics subsystem for Windows 10 and Windows 8 computers; no keyboard shortcut for restarting your graphics drivers exists on Windows 7.

At #CES2018, ‘Retron’-maker Hyperkin showed off its Game Boy Clone System

With the influx of cloned retro systems (standard-sized and micro-sized), this has become a great way to experience — for the first time ever or in a while — older games on newer hardware.  Via a report from Gizmodo, Hyperkin, the makers of the Retron 5, unveiled their clone system to the popular Nintendo Game Boy, temporarily called the “Ultra Game Boy”; that will DEFINITELY be renamed for trademark and copyright reasons (because DUH). However, that codename is a great description of Hyperkin’s hardware, which aims to improve on Nintendo’s original Game Boy in many ways that won’t impede on the system’s classic gameplay. In yet, they DID release their take on the original Xbox’s “Duke” controller because REASONS…

How Does A Design Firm Build a 1,000-Square-Meter Building in Only a Few Months?

SUMMARY studio answered that question by unveiling its mostly-prefabricated concrete modular building system, after showing its Gomos#1 prototype and and displaying their method at the exhibition at the Venice Biennale. The project, located along a nation road in Vale de Cambra, Portugal, consists of several housing units and multi-functional service spaces, and the client’s demands were: fast, economical, and modifiable-over-time (depending on need) construction. This is based on the Gomos System, which is comprised of  a series of singular reinforced prefabricated concrete modules (gomos) that simply join together, providing a fully livable living space in moments.

HEY! This Bizarre Gunshot-Plugging Thing-a-Majig Just Saved Someone’s Life!

The XSTAT Rapid Hemostasis System. (Image: RevMedx Inc.)

This is the XSTAT Rapid Hemostasis System, an innovative sponge-filled dressing hemostatic device developed by RevMedx Inc., which  works by pumping expandable, tablet-sized sponges into a wound, stanching bleeding while a patient is rushed to hospital.  Recently, the XSTAT was used to save the life of a coalition forces soldier who was shot in the leg, and it’s the first documented clinical use of the product, originally approved for military use back in 2014.  Also, late last year, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved XSTAT for use in the general population.

Who Wants These Glass Walls That Slide Around Corners to Disappear From View? ME!!!

Window and door manufacturer Vitrocsa seems to have literally turned a corner (heh-heh-heh) with the concept of vanishing glass walls with its “Turnable” system. As demonstrated in the video above, the “Turnable” system turns the concept of your ordinary sliding door on its head by enabling the panels to actually TURN CORNERS. In other words, the glass panels can be hidden within the nearest solid wall. Vitrocsa’s website explains that the system was “developed to optimize space by completely removing panels from view,” as each panel can slide independently of each other and when moved out of the way can be completely hidden either along or pocketed within a side wall. These panels can freely slide around any number of corners allowing a design opportunity in creating opportunities of optimum exterior views.

A Moment of Silence for this Gamer’s PSP…

A Dignified Death For A Beloved Gaming System

What would you do when a video game console you have cherished memories of bit the dust? Throw to away? Harvest it for spare parts? Donate or sell it for said use of spare parts? Well, when Redditor tommyboy601’s PSP encountered an incident involving a contained explosion of the system’s internal battery, he decided his time with the Sony portable was at an end, so he created a fitting memorial to an old friend.
