What we played in May

Mon, 29 May 2017 16:17:00 -0400

(image) From in-depth features and interviews to the daily torrent of trailers and news, we write a lot about video games here. But there's only so much one team can cover, and often some of our favorite games never grace the digital pages of Engadget. To r...

Mon, 29 May 2017 12:43:00 -0400

Mon, 29 May 2017 11:04:00 -0400

(image) Back in January, the FDA has finally acknowledged that some pacemakers and other cardiac devices are vulnerable to hacking. But how vulnerable are they, exactly? A security company called WhiteScope has discovered 8,000 bugs that hackers can exploit...

Alienware 15 review: Bigger, but not necessarily better

Mon, 29 May 2017 10:00:00 -0400

(image) Getting your hands on a bleeding-edge gaming laptop is an exercise in chasing chip architecture. It's sort of a waiting game. You wait for Intel and NVIDIA to upgrade their GPU and CPU standards, you wait for early adopter manufacturers to put them t...

Mon, 29 May 2017 08:02:00 -0400

(image) The ebb and flow of legal rules when it comes to flying a drone, whether it's a cheap mainstream model or something a little more intense, is confusing. It also differs depending on country, and even state. When it comes to Texas, both the House and...

Silicon-laced diamonds could lead to practical quantum computers

Mon, 29 May 2017 04:52:00 -0400

(image) Scientists already believe that diamonds could be a solid foundation for practical quantum computers. You can use atom-scale defects in diamond to store quantum bits that hold contradictory data (say, both on and off) in a way that lets you read the...

ASUS blew a hole in its newest wireless router

Mon, 29 May 2017 02:30:00 -0400

(image) Wireless routers have been, for years, ugly black rectangles that we've habitually tried to bury behind our TVs and bookshelves. ASUS is hoping that you'll think differently about the Blue Cave, its new WiFi router that looks like an electric pencil...

Zepp phone apps use AI to study your basketball shots

Sun, 28 May 2017 22:45:00 -0400

(image) You may know Zepp for sports tracking sensors you can slap on your baseball bat or soccer ball, but its latest tracking involves little more than your phone and a good view of the action. Its game recording and training apps (Android, iOS) are adding...

'Rime' creators will remove anti-tampering code if it's cracked

Sun, 28 May 2017 21:17:00 -0400

(image) Game studios that use digital rights management (DRM) tools tend to defend it to the death, even after it's been cracked. It prevents 'casual' piracy and cheating, they sometimes argue. However, Rime developer Tequila Works is taking a decidedly diff...

Sun, 28 May 2017 19:26:00 -0400

(image) As a rule, astronomers believe that stars have to explode in a supernova before they collapse into black holes. That violent death is always the cue, right? Not necessarily. Researchers have spotted a massive star 22 million light years away, N69...

Nintendo might not be done boosting Switch production

Sun, 28 May 2017 17:58:00 -0400

(image) It's no secret that Nintendo is facing a ton of demand for the Switch, to the point where it reportedly doubled production to keep up. Even that figure might be a tad conservative, however. The Financial Times' supply chain sources claim that Nintend...

Sun, 28 May 2017 16:27:00 -0400

(image) Sega's Genesis Nomad was always something of a compromise (it was running 16-bit console games on mid-1990s handheld tech), but the battery life was a particularly sore point: it took six AA batteries just to get 3 hours of play time. Wouldn't it be...

Conch shells hold the secret to impact-resistant armor

Sun, 28 May 2017 14:56:00 -0400

(image) The conch shell is made of the same material as chalk, but unlike the crumbly rock, it's one of the toughest materials out there. If we can understand why it's so tough, we can mimic it to create nearly unbreakable materials that can be used for safe...

Sun, 28 May 2017 11:30:00 -0400

Sun, 28 May 2017 06:06:00 -0400

(image) These sleep googles by a company called Sana Health cost a lot more than your typical mask, but it promises peaceful sleep 10 minutes after you put them on. That's because they more than just block the light: they have mechanisms inside that chunky,...
