Are you stoked about Call of Duty: Ghosts? Well, since last month, we reported rumors of the game being unveiled on May 1st, accompanied by the launch of the teaser website at the end of last month. Well, the folks over at Infinity Ward has shown off a teaser of Call of Duty: Ghosts for next week’s reveal at the next generation Xbox event which should be a surefire way of gaining attention. Surely the legion of Call of Duty fans would remain on the edge of their seat, and the small bunch of frames which have been packaged into a Vine video might not be what you have in mind, but like the old saying, even if there are no lobsters around, shrimp would have to do.
You will not find a brief moment of gameplay or something that concerns the story arc, but rather, you will find Call of Duty: Ghosts’ skeleton, which so happens to comprise of a mish-mash of images that were snapped during development that depicts character frames and animations, in addition to what is most likely the engine behind the game. Call of Duty: Ghosts is set to roll out on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms from November 5th onwards, before it makes its way to the next generation of game consoles, namely the PlayStation 4 and the next-gen Xbox.

We did talk about Medbox during summer last year, where we mentioned that this is a marijuana vending machine which could potentially result in plenty of controversies where its existence is concerned. Well, nearly a year down the road, and what do we have? Bruce Bedrick, the CEO of Medbox, said, “We are in the right place at the right time. We are planning to literally dominate the industry.”
Medbox’s core product would look like a Redbox DVD dispenser, although it would come in a shade of black, is refrigerated, and of course, armored. Bedrick prefers to avoid the term vending machine, simply because it does not allow you to saunter up to a Medbox, pop in an amount of currency, and walk away with a bunch of weed and that smile on your face. No sir, there will be biometric technology which will help identify the fingerprints of patients that carry state-issued medical marijuana cards. There will be a database that keeps track of everything, ensuring patients are unable to purchase more than their legal allotment, and clerks themselves are unable to pilfer the merch, with states winning out on tax collection to boot.Each of these machines from Medbox would cost $50,000, where these machines were meant to allay fears that pot means “druggies standing on street corners and grabbing little kids and stuffing drugs down their throats,” at least according to Bedrick’s definition. Do you agree?
