introducing the Eierschalensollbruchstellenverursacher

the Eierschalensollbruchstellenverursacher, is a german tool that cracks eggs.

literally translated it means “Soft-boiled egg shell cracker” and while the name is really silly it actually functions perfectly in making a nice even round crack on soft boiled eggs.

Osiris: New Dawn

20161008160216_1

 

Osiris: new dawn is a space sandbox game made by FenixFire Entertainment, and indy game developer.

my first impression of the game was that its a game similar to No Man’s Sky with some improvements and features, and I realized how different it is after playing it for about 12 hours.

check out the teaser trailer:

 

there is also a longer trailer but I think its a bit spoiler-y, click here to view it.

the game has all the usual elements of a sandbox game, the crafting, material gathering and surviving is wonderfully implemented, and the Unreal 4 Engine looks and preforms great (with minor glitches), please take note that the game is still in an early development stage and so I will list some positive and negative points about it in details.

(this is regarding Game build Version 0.97x )

Pros:

  • the game engine and world design feel great to play in
  • there is about 20 resources to gather or craft
  • player has to be aware of health, hydration and hunger.
  • there are multiple designs of enemies, and some are passive until aggro’d
  • the player has a nice list of items, structures and vehicles to build
  • the game has a cool hover bike
  • in multiplayers, you can avoid grieving by building private structures/storage/vehicles
  • however you can share by making a colony and inviting other player to it

Cons:

  • No Game story so far.
  • there are occasional glitches in the world, like falling through solid objects
  • resources have different names and weight, but are either solid or gas
  • the game UI needs a lot of work: for instance some buttons overlap with action buttons while the multi-tool is equipped
  • some of the items are not build-able in game, despite them being available for building (for example Mech, Assault Rifle)
  • Structures cannot be connected like shown in the trailer, this is probably yet to be implemented
  • vehicles have infinite fuel and nearly infinite health
  • vehicle storage make the game crash sometimes (devs promise to fix it)
  • the map of the world is fixed, for any and all players, there is no procedurally generated content
  • enemies and resources will respawn after u leave and area, making very easy to farm/abuse
  • there is nothing to do in space, building a spaceship so far is pointless.
  • in multiplayer, none of the vehicles can be used by two players i.e. no passengers allowed

20161008223244_1

so the game is nothing like No Man’s Sky, just a single planet with a fixed map, nothing to do in space and no where to explore.

but in its own way the game is fun and I think its worth trying now, and the game has potential so I will wait and see what features and content will be added to the game in the future.

 

7/10 (but I will wait)

[Repost] Glowforge: Democratizing Laser Cutting with an Inexpensive, Easy to Use Machine

the following article was reposted from Core77, link to the original is found at the bottom.

For many would-be makers, there are barriers aplenty that can keep one from realizing one’s dreams. One of the first barriers is not having access to the right tools—the welding rig, 3D printer, laser cutter etc. that you need for your project—or the know-how to work one. But thankfully companies like Glowforge are ready to step in and become barrier removers, by designing better, cheaper tools that are easier to use than their forebears.

Glowforge is currently democratizing laser cutting by designing an affordable, easy-to-use laser cutter/printer that takes clever advantage of software. By integrating affordable smartphone cameras linked to software, their machine enables you to do things like draw directly on your part and have the laser trace-cut it (once you’ve removed your hand, naturally). The hassles of part alignment are all done on the screen of your smart device, rather than on the physical bed of the machine, giving you a WYSIWYG interface that reduces errors. And they reckon that their eponymous machine can rival a $10,000-plus laser cutter, but for just under two grand

Walnut veneer Macbook keyboard caps / Print Time: 33min / Material Cost: $12.00

Stacked contrasting pen holder / Print Time: 29min / Material Cost: $8.00

Engraved glass spice jars / Print Time: 9min / Material Cost: $10.00

Kip leather custom satchel / Print Time: 133min / Material Cost: $58.00

Take a look at some of the things they’ve produced:

Check out how easy this looks to use:

Here’s a more in-depth video, for those of you interested in the technology behind it, and some of the early successes that drove company founder Dan Shapiro to develop the machine:

For the next 26 days, they’re taking pre-orders for the machine at an astonishing 50% off (i.e. the $4,000 model is going for $1,995), with shipping scheduled for December of this year. Demand is apparently strong: In the four days since the sale began, they’d racked up $3,052,002 in sales!

flying in a Drone

this is an amazing project, the idea was to make a super drone that could fly a person, though I think a drone by definition is an unmanned machine. but anyway the specs are: 54 counter-rotation propellers, six grouped control channels with KK2.15 stabilization. Take off weight 148kg, max lift, approx. 164kg. Endurance10 minutes. Power approx. 22KW. Cost £6,000

I love the crazy Idea and I would love to see more flying machines using Drone technology.
