Nintendo almost developed a Harry Potter game, here is the concept art

first image of the post
Starting in 2001, EA Games released a series of Harry Potter related video games at the rythm of almost one per year. The games were first released on PC, then on Xbox, PS and Wii (pretty much in that order). What is lesser known is that, as early as 1998, Nintendo pitched a game concept […]

Almost every single Xbox executive we profiled in this video last year has left the company

Boyd Multerer, the genius Microsoft engineer who founded Xbox Live, helped build the Xbox 360, and led the development of the three-operating-systems-in-one Xbox One platform, announced on Twitter today that he’s left Microsoft to pursue new opportunities. Multerer has been on leave since the Xbox One launched; he and his wife Keri launched the interactive erotica site Silkwords back in Februrary, and now he says he’s focusing on other new startup ideas.

But more importantly, Multerer’s departure means that almost every single person on the Xbox One team we profiled last November when that console…

I almost killed someone with a drone

A few weeks ago, my wife, two sons, and I got out of the city and visited my in-laws. I brought along my DJI Phantom drone, the Vision 2 model. My older son is nearly two, and he loves to watch it fly, although he sometimes has to hide behind my legs in fear when it comes close during a landing.

I was excited because my in-laws have a spacious suburban backyard. It’s roughly half an acre, protected on three sides by high walls of trees. I’m used to flying in my tiny Brooklyn backyard and in…

Google CEO Larry Page just put Sundar Pichai in charge of almost everything

Google’s Sundar Pichai, who’s already responsible for overseeing Android and Chrome, is about to have even more on his plate. According to Recode, CEO Larry Page has sent a memo to employees revealing that Pichai will now lead nearly every major product division at the company. That includes search, maps, Google+, commerce, research, plus ads and infrastructure. The senior executives previously tasked with heading up those efforts at Google (including new world record holder Alan Eustace) will now report to Pichai instead of Page. Since YouTube is in many ways a standalone operation at this point, Pichai won’t be a middleman between CEO Susan Wojcicki and Page; she’ll still report directly to Google’s top boss.

Page will continue to…

Here’s almost every Easter egg from Marvel’s first eight films

None of Marvel Studios’ films are entirely original. That isn’t a criticism: the storyline and characters are adapted from years of comic books, films, TV shows, etc. Each film embraces the past with an insane number of Easter eggs that acknowledges both the source material and the other films in the wholly-interconnected Marvel Cinematic Universe. In a 13-minute montage, MTV breaks down all the Easter eggs from 2008’s Iron Man through 2013’s Thor: The Dark World— meaning no Captain America: The Winter Soldier, no Guardians of the Galaxy, and nothing from Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD television show. Is it complete? “Absolutely not,” say someone who knows comic books way better than us. But we still enjoyed watching.

How one iPhone app just made it really easy to open almost any lock

Your locks could be rendered all but useless if your keys get out of sight for just a minute. And the would-be thief doesn’t need to be a master lockpick: all he needs is an iPhone. Wired reporter Andy Greenberg recently demonstrated how an app designed to make it easy to get duplicates of your keys can be used to copy someone else’s keys in just a few seconds. The app, KeyMe, uses the phone’s camera to scan the keys and save them to your digital keychain. From there, you can get the keys made at one of their self-service kiosks. Keys have never been the best form of security, but with technology like this around, you might want to think twice before handing your set over to someone else. Be sure to check out the full article over at W…

Scribble pen is an innovative pen with almost no limit in the color. It is the first coloring device that lets you draw in 16 million different colors. With scribble, you can take the world of color around you and transfer it directly to either paper or your favorite mobile device.

Designers of the scribble pen Mark Barker and Robert Hoffmansays the pen is “the first coloring device of its kind that can take the world of color around you and transfer it directly to either paper or your favorite mobile device.”

The two different scribbles pens – Scribble Ink and Scribble Stylus pairs with Scribble+ mobile app to instantly sync every color that you can scan directly onto your Android or iPhone devices. The scribble ink is an ink cartridge that lets you draw on paper with the color that you have captured. The Scribble Stylus allows you to splash color around on your mobile devices screen but make sure you have Scribble app installed.


These both versions of scribble pen use Bluetooth technology and Micro-USB cables in order to communicate with computer. It measures only about 6.3 inches and if you wonder how it works then the answer is very simple. The pen actually scans a color from any object and can transform the ink to match the same color. Sounds amazing right?


A company spokesman said, “For the color blind, kids, interior decorators, homeowners, teachers, artists, photographers, designers and students, the Scribble color picker pen will make copying an exact color, any color from any object, an absolute breeze.”

So definitely the scribble pen is a wonder piece to try.
