Just last week Microsoft announced the HoloLens hologram technology headset. The headset, for those who missed the announcement, is unlike other headsets like the Oculus Rift or Sony’s Project Morpheus. The HoloLens offers hologram technology and takes advantage of augmented reality to allow its wearer to interact with it and the real world at the same time.

One of the examples of how the headset could be used is in a game of Minecraft where the player sees the entire map laid out in front of them that they can interact with, but what else could the HoloLens be used for? Well according to Bill Gates during his recent Reddit AMA, it seems that we could be years away from seeing the true potential of the technology.

microsoft logoWith Nokia’s cellphone division at their disposal, we have to admit that we are curious as to what kind of high-end smartphone Microsoft could potentially launch. So far we’ve seen the company launch low-mid range handsets which aren’t particularly impressive, although we reckon it should help them capture the emerging market.

Unfortunately if flagship Windows Phone handsets are what you’re still after, MWC 2015 could be a fairly disappointing experience for you. According to new rumors, Microsoft will be launching at least two new Lumia handsets at the event, however there will not be any announcement for flagship handsets.

smash brosMaking videos of your favorite games and sharing them on platforms like YouTube is a good way to help educate players about the game, or maybe even entice them to try the game for themselves. The good news is that if you’re an avid YouTuber and want to potentially try and make some extra cash on the side, Nintendo has recently launched the beta version of a new affiliate program.

This new affiliate program has been designed to share the advertising revenue made on YouTube with the creators of the video as well as Nintendo. Given that the videos you create will contain copyrighted material owned by Nintendo, we guess Nintendo thinks its fair that they get some of the money. Thankfully the split will be 60% to the creator, and 40% to Nintendo. Read full post →Nintendo Creators Program Beta Launched

nfs fuelOne of the perks of playing racing video games is that you get to drive the car of your dreams. You don’t have to worry about breaking the law, getting into accidents, and best of all, you don’t have to worry about gas, or maybe you do if you’re planning on getting your hands on EA’s Need for Speed: No Limits.

As we’re sure many of you are well aware, EA is a fan of in-app purchases and it seems that Need for Speed: No Limits will not be any different.
