This year’s been weird so we figured we’d give you an extra bit of craziness for the final episode of the year. We hope you enjoy it, and check out Season 3 when Blitcast returns next year!
Windows 10, Microsoft RoomAlive, the Boiler Snake and the Cure for Loneliness.
We’re back! To kickstart our second season, we bring you the highlights from Apple’s WWDC. And, of course, 2 ‘meanwhiles’.
Over on Consumerist, they hold a yearly vote to see who has pissed off Americans the most. EA has just lost out to Time Warner Cable for the title of ‘Worst Company in America’…in the first round. This comes as a surprise as the gaming giant has won the title two years in a row. Mind you, they didn’t lose by much (48.8% to Time Warner Cable’s 51.2%). It seems the trend in this year’s voting has been with Internet Service Providers, as both Verizon and Comcast has also made it through the first round. Who would you vote for?
This week on Blitcast: 3ds might get Unity, Project Morpheus, console sales update, Windows XP, Turkey bans Twitter, the sinister cat and the hand of fire
For those of us still using analog services to post a letter, you can feel less detached from the digital world. In a list published by the US Postal Service, Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, has been confirmed to be a face of a limited run of collector’s stamps for 2015. A design for his stamp has yet to be finalised. Also previously unannounced collector’s stamps are Michael Jackson, Jimi Hendrix and none other than ‘Video Games’ (I couldn’t generalise that any more than what’s provided) Whether you even use stamps anymore or not, what would you like to see on a stamp?
This was kept quiet since August 2013. A self-taught programmer from South Korea decided to re-engineer your bog standard living room entertainment camera for something a little more serious. Shortly after the original Kinect launched, Microsoft showed full support for those who wanted to make something a little more useful. Jae Kwan Ko programmed the 3D sensor to detect moving objects in the Demilitarized Zone, and allegedly can tell the difference between humans and animals. Bad news if you’re a human. You’ll be reported to the authorities. What would you program the Kinect to do?
