google glass atmGoogle Glass, the wearable head mounted optical display device that has waded into a fair number of controversies in the past way before it was even released to the masses, has been banned from this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, especially when it comes to film screenings. This ban was listed down in Comic-Con’s official Convention Policies handbook, although it must be stated that the blacklisted devices printed in the handbook itself are called “Glasses”, which semantically, it is different from how Google pronounces it as just Glass.

azeroth choppers 640x227World of Warcraft is one of Blizzard’s top money makers and one of the more older MMORPGs still around and active. The game still has many players who enjoy the game and it was a few months ago that Blizzard launched a web series called Azeroth Choppers. It basically tasked two teams from the World of Warcraft development team to design a chopper to have an Alliance or Horde theme.

Well the votes were cast and the winner was revealed to be none other than the Horde (for the Horde!). Now according to Blizzard, they did promise that the winning chopper design would be made available to players in the game as a free mount, and the good news is that the mount is now live.

When the Moto 360 was announced this year, safe to say that the smartwatch was definitely in a class of its own in terms of design. Other OEMs have gone for square-ish displays while Motorola has decided that they will keep to more traditional watch designs, thus resulting in what we’re sure many can admit is a beautiful device.

That being said apart from its design, we have heard how the Moto 360 plans to stand out from the competition by offering wireless charging, and now according to a video by TechCrunch, it looks like that the Moto 360 will be coming with an additional sensor that other OEMs have neglected – an ambient light sensor.

A couple of weeks ago, an alleged photo of the headset surfaced and now thanks to the folks at SamMobile, they have managed to get their hands on a handful of screenshots which are apparently that of the accompanying Gear VR app. As per the app’s screenshots, it pretty much confirms that the headset will focus on virtual reality.
