DayZ has sold 3 million copies even though it’s still in development

Open-world zombie survival game DayZ has sold over three million copies since launch in December 2013, according to developer Bohemia Interactive. It sold one million copies during its first month on sale, and passed the two million mark during its first four months. Those are impressive numbers for any game, let alone one that spawned from a user-generated mod and is still in the alpha stage of development.

But DayZ (and its me-too competitors, The War Z and Rust) is one of the only places for gamers to fend for themselves in a lawless, digital world. Players are tossed into an abandoned wilderness with few supplies and are left to their devices to find a way to survive through unpredictable encounters with other desperate survivors….

The weirdest car at CES doesn’t even have four wheels

Many of the cars at CES look just like normal, everyday cars, except they’re packed to the gills with next-gen technology — Android Auto, CarPlay, self-driving, the list goes on.

Then there’s Elio.

The quirky little three-wheeler was briefly parked in the lot outside the Las Vegas Convention Center this week, drawing curious stares and photographs from countless passersby. It’s just a prototype cobbled together with sundry parts from various automakers, but by the time it’s on sale next year, Elio Motors claims the car will get 84 miles per gallon from a three-cylinder engine. Perhaps even crazier, it’ll cost just $ 6,800. That’s less than most motorcycles, never mind cars.

You probably wouldn’t do a family road trip in it, but the…

LG makes even normal appliances seem weird at CES 2015

You can always find weirdly high-tech appliances at CES, be it a washing machine that receives text messages or a refrigerator with a tablet grafted onto it. But you can also find some of the strangest versions of everyday appliances, too. And this year, the strangest are definitely at LG’s booth.

The appliance that attracted the biggest crowd was easily LG’s Twin Wash washing machine. It’s mostly just a normal washing machine, but on the bottom there’s a second miniature washing machine. LG’s idea is that you can put in two loads at once to save time or use the mini washer for a small number of delicates that you want to put on a different cycle. The bottom machine uses less water and takes less time, too, so it could be good for…

At CES, every screen is curved — even the video slot machines

If the TV manufacturers (and Yves Behar) fail to convince the buying public that curved screens are exactly what they need to fill the gaping void in our hearts, they shouldn’t be too worried. A quick walk through any casino in Las Vegas will show you that there’s a built-in market for these screens that shows no sign of slowing down. Behold, the curved video slot machine screen.

Contemporary Art at Le Méridien Chambers

‘Tusk’ review: Kevin Smith turns a weird podcast into an even weirder movie

“Twitter gives up gifts all the time. It gave up a gift last night.”

In June 2013, around 11 minutes into his weekly podcast, director Kevin Smith introduced a strange story that he’d come across on Twitter. It was a listing on an apartment rental website, offering up a free room in a nice house under some conditions: the tenant, on occasion, would have to dress up as a walrus. The owner of the house had apparently once lived on an island with an actual walrus, and he dreamed of reliving that companionship in his old age.

Smith and his co-host bantered back and forth about this absurd listing, spinning it out into an even stranger tale of their own. Though the segment went on for an hour, it was after just 20 minutes that Smith knew…

For Designers, The Customer Is NEVER Right (Even When They Are)

The adage “The Customer Is Always Right” has been so deeply ingrained in us that going against the principle can feel near impossible. Even as children, long before the issue gained any real-world application, we were learning this little mantra. No matter what, you have to make the customer happy. What better way than to […]
