halo reach demoThis coming November 2014, we will see the good people over at 343 Industries deliver a slew of remastered titles that make up the core Halo games, namely Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4.

Wheelchairs that are laden with bits and pieces of technology are not exactly new, as we have seen a fair number of those in the past. In fact, we have also spotted an eye-tracking wheelchair that makes it easier for the disabled to get around. Intel, a name that is more often than not synonymous with computers and microprocessors, has also dipped their fingers into the smart wheelchair market, and who else better to deliver a glowing recommendation other than the scientist Stephen Hawking who himself has been wheelchair ridden for years?

Line, the instant messaging company from Japan, intends to narrow down their focus when it comes to multimedia apps after introducing SnapMovie as a standalone app. For those who are wondering just what SnapMovie is capable of bringing to the tablet, this so happens to be an app that brings Vine-like features, and right now, it is a standalone download – which will cater for Android devices only.

totemIt does look as though the Oculus Rift is the de facto virtual reality headset for developers to work with at the moment, but are there any decent alternatives in the market? Perhaps so, as the Vrvana Totem headset that you see above, worn by a seemingly enthusiastic test subject, would allow you to explore a virtual world with one major advantage – you will not lose awareness of the world around you.

Square Enix has rolled out a fair number of hits under the Final Fantasy franchise over the years, and the game studio does not look as though they are going to slow down anytime soon with this particular franchise. Sure, there has been some misses along the way, but considering the company’s track record in delivering RPGs that are engaging – storyline-wise as well as through stunning visuals and great sounding audio, I am quite sure that whatever misgivings can be forgiven. In fact, their upcoming major title would be known as Final Fantasy 15, where a new trailer of the game has been revealed, showing how you are able to drive a car inside.

sangriaSure, Amazon might have wowed the masses earlier this afternoon with a slew of Kindle releases, namely the Kindle Voyage leading the line, coupled with updated Kindle Fire e-readers. However, having good hardware would not be of much use, if there is no equivalent software to help you along. Amazon knows this, which is why they have decided to update the software which powers their range of tablets and smartphones, calling it the Fire OS 4 “Sangria” that is based on Google’s Android 4.4 KitKat mobile operating system. Similar to the previous versions of the operating system, this one will carry with it a distinctly Amazon design.

hp slate 7 beats editionWhen it comes to Android-powered tablets, these happen to be dime a dozen, and with so many models for you to pick from, just which particular one do you think is capable of suiting your needs best? Well, HP is not exactly the go-to name when it comes to tablets, but this does not mean that they do not have any kind of solid offerings.

warlocksWhen it comes to someone who is living the high life, and yet are born without any limbs, then there is no better example than Nick Vujicic himself. I had the privilege of meeting him up close and personal a dozen years ago before he achieved such a phenomenal level of success, and back then, I didn’t even need to pony up a single cent to go up and give him a hug and tell him how inspirational he is. I am quite sure that Nick would also be proud of Polish indie game developer Max Strzelecki, as this 21-year old programmer has worked on a new game known as Warlocks that is being launched on Kickstarter. The kicker? Strzelecki used his feet to do all of the programming as he was born without any arms.

styleswap oneplus one 640x128Earlier this year, we brought you word that the OnePlus One StyleSwap Covers have been confirmed, which means it is only a matter of time before we actually get our hands on it. Having said that, it looks like things have not gone on as planned for the company. The OnePlus One smartphone had seen a fair number of leaks before it was officially revealed to the market, hence having had some sheen and gloss removed from it. Apart from that, OnePlus was also involved in some rather tasteless promotions (which thankfully, were taken down shortly after), and the fact that those who have been hankering after a unit have so far been unable to pick one up due to the the invitation-based buying system. To pile on the accumulated woes, production of the StyleSwap covers has been announced to stop.
