The Lego Ideas International Space Station Is Out of This World - 4時間前  Geek.com

Yet another amazing enthusiast-created Lego set has become a reality. Today, the company announced the release of the Lego Ideas International Space Station. The original MOC was submitted by Christoph Ruge in the fall of 2017 (though he had submitted another one several years earlier). By the following summer it had already surpassed the 10,000 vote mark and earned a date with Lego’s review team. Their initial assessment? Sorry, but we’re not releasing this one as a set. However, to celebrate 10 years of Lego Ideas, the company held a special fan vote. Th...more

FBI Allegedly Stopped Apple’s Encryption Plans - 5時間前  Geek.com

It turns out when the FBI isn’t releasing tone-deaf tweets about MLK apparently they’re indirectly making Apple devices less secure for their own investigative ends. A report on Reuters claims Apple wanted to expand encryption options, but were stopped by the American government agency. Specifically, the FBI objected to Apple’s proposal of end-to-end encryption for iCloud backups. For all of my issues with Apple (high price, no headphone jack, bad original TV shows) I legitimately appreciate their commitment to security in the face of competitors whose business models...more

These Are the Top 10 PlayStation 4 Games We Want on PC - 6時間前  Geek.com

Early last week, the gaming world lost its collective mind over rumors that PS4 exclusive, Horizon Zero Dawn, was coming to PC. As the success of Xbox’s Play Anywhere initiative has proven, gamers want the freedom to play their favorite titles on as many devices as possible. With that in mind, Sony releasing their big-time exclusives on PC doesn’t seem so outlandish. In fact, it sounds downright inevitable. If Horizon Zero Dawn comes to PC it stands to reason that Sony will release more of its top-tier games on the platform. But which exclusives should make the trek f...more

‘Batwoman’ Season 1 Episode 10 Recap: Batwoman Comes Out - 9時間前  Geek.com

Ruby Rose as Kate Kane in 'Batwoman.' (Photo Credit: Colin Bentley / The CW) The first of the CW shows to return after “Crisis” is Batwoman. Its Gotham appears to be affected the least by the events of last week’s crossover conclusion. We get a message on the radio about Oliver Queen’s death before the show picks up its pre-Crisis story. That’s a good thing, because the last regular episode ended things in an interesting place. Alice poisoned Catherine and framed Jacob. Now Kate’s not talking to her, and Mary is done try...more

Killer T-Cell Discovery Could Mean ‘Universal’ Cancer Treatment - 9時間前  Geek.com

T-cells attacking cancer (via Cardiff University) A new type of killer T-cell could serve as “one-size-fits-all” cancer therapy. Researchers at Cardiff University in Wales discovered a different kind of T-cell receptor (TCR)—one that recognizes and kills most human cancer cells while ignoring healthy ones. The early-stage findings, published this week in the journal Nature Immunology, have not yet been tested in patients. But the team said they have “enormous potential.” Understanding T-Cells T-cells are a type of lymphocyte (white b...more

Hands-On: ‘Doom Eternal’ Rips and Tears Us to Pieces - 10時間前  Geek.com

I love Doom 2016. It was the first game of the year I chose while working for Geek. It was one of my top games of the decade. Whether playing on the most powerful PCs in the office or the modest Nintendo Switch on the go, I can’t believe how well iD Software updated this foundational text of first-person shooters for the modern era. Hell on Earth was heavenly. Doom 2016 left one of the most promising jumping off points for a sequel. The demon slaughtering was already polished to a shine. We just needed more of it, perhaps performed in new ways in new locations. And af...more

But with great power comes great responsibility: A maxim by which Google and Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai runs his businesses. “There is no question in my mind that artificial intelligence needs to be regulated,” he wrote in a Financial Times op-ed published on Monday. “It is too important not to.̶...more

The ESA's new prototype plant is producing air out of simulated moondust. (Photo Credit: ESA) The moon could be the next living hub in space, but there’s one problem we need to tackle before we go there: air on the lunar surface. The European Space Agency (ESA) recently set up a prototype oxygen plant at the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in the Netherlands, which started to produce oxygen out of simulated moondust. Helping future #Moon settlers, a prototype plant has been set up at ESA’s technical centre in Noordwijk, th...more

‘Mewtwo Strikes Back’ Remake Is Another Terrifying Pokemon Movie - 5時間前  Geek.com

At first I was horrified by the live-action Pokemon of Detective Pikachu. But then that ended up being one of my favorite movies of the year. So maybe this CGI remake of Mewtwo Strikes Back (which has a relatively good plot) will be a similar surprise. We’ll see for ourselves when it lands on Netflix next month. 2019 is set to be a real trip for Pokemon fans. We recently learned about Pokemon Sword and Shield, the next entries in the core RPG series. Normally a new generation is exciting enough on its own, but this is the first time the main series has appeared...more

Every ‘Half-Life’ Game Is Now Free, Confirmed - 6時間前  Geek.com

The last proper Half-Life game was released in 2007. 13 Years ago. If you were born then there’s a very good chance you’re a gamer now, a gamer who grew up hearing tales of Valve’s legendary PC game series that abruptly vanished. And now you may be wondering why all of these old folks are cautiously optimistic about Half-Life: Alyx, the surprise virtual reality revival starring Gordon Freeman’s capable partner Alyx Vance. To play that game this March you’ll need to shell out for a pricey VR headset like the Valve Index. However, right now you can catch up with the res...more

Cress Williams as Black Lightning. (Photo Credit: Annette Brown / The CW) Though Black Lightning didn’t have its own “Crisis on Infinite Earths” episode, the crossover is affecting this show in a big way. For the last two seasons, Black Lightning existed in its own Earth, not interacting at all with the rest of the CW-verse. That started to change in December’s midseason finale when a wave of antimatter appeared and pulled Jen into two alternate realities at once. As soon as she worked things out with her… selves, the wave swa...more

HBO Isn’t Making ‘Watchmen’ Season 2. Good. - 9時間前  Geek.com

Regina King (Credit: Mark Hill/HBO) I’ve been writing about TV on this site for about three years now. I’ve gotten paid to watch a lot of good TV and some pretty bad TV as well. Sometimes, like the final episodes of Game of Thrones or the “Cult” season of American Horror Story, it felt like a miserable day at the office. Fortunately, there were always shows that made up for those days, like Better Call Saul or The Mandalorian. Not even the best episodes of those shows even came close to the experience of seeing HBO’s Watchmen f...more

Baby Yoda Gets Some Competition from Baby…Jabba? - 10時間前  Geek.com

image credit: Leonardo Viti At this point, I don’t need to convince you all how popular Baby Yoda is. You’ve shown me. Every article I write on the little green muppet gets about three times as much traffic as my other pieces, even though I of course love all *my* babies equally. But now it seems I may finally be able to write about a baby not named Yoda, thanks to artist Leonardo Viti giving me a reprieve in the form of Baby Jabba. Leonardo Viti is a 3D artist and sculptor that focuses on highly stylized, yet detailed c...more

Tesla calls bullshit on claims that its cars are prone to “sudden unintended acceleration.” A December petition asking the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to investigate and recall 500,000 Tesla vehicles is “completely false,” according to the automaker. “We investigate every single incident where the driver alleges to us that their vehicle accelerated contrary to their input,” the Tesla Team wrote in an angry blog post. “And in every case where we had the vehicl...more
