Where Giz readers talk about stuff we're not already posting about.
Bluetooth gets intelligence boost, official colour of 2014, cobalt-60 thieves will die.
By way of Kotaku, we hear about Canadian blogger Rinry, who subjected eight NES cartridges to all manner of video game torture and hell. When the dust settled, seven of the cartridges still worked.
We’ve seen reimagined Genesises (Geneses?) before, but this might be the best one yet. It’s portable, it plays both original cartridges and ROMS off an SD card, it’s got TV-out and it only costs $US50. Sign us up.
The creators of Ecofont want to save you ink by drilling tiny holes in your print. Good idea?
To the modern modder, the NES cartridge is a tool as versatile as a Swiss Army Knife, or maybe one of those blade-things that fits in the credit card slot of one’s wallet. Regardless, the NES-Box is an NES cartridge stuffed with a 2.5″ 250GB SATA drive. Connecting to any computer via USB, the drive needs additional power to operate. And the best part? This baby is actually on sale for $US180. We find it hard to believe that the one in stock hasn’t been purchased yet, but maybe if you ask the Etsy seller real nice, they’ll fashion another just for you. [Etsy via ubergizmo]
Over at NextFest, we came across an entire tree’s worth of Xerox’s cartridge-less solid ink, a technology we’d heard about but never seen in person. They feel more like a hard, textured plastic than a waxy crayon (which is its most touted analogy), and the ink doesn’t rub off in your hand at all. And yes, Xerox, we’ll be happy to buy your product that reduces ink waste by 90% if you’d kindly release it to the market.
Rounding out our Nintendo news trifecta today is the annual Famicase art exhibition. It’s like many other art exhibitions from around the world, made infinitely cooler by the fact that the artwork is comprised of imaginary games pasted to old 8-bit Famicom carts. More than 50 designers, illustrators and authors contributed to event this year, which is organised by Super Meteor game shop owner Satoshi Sagagami. Some are crazier than others, but all have a home in this Nintendo lover’s heart. Personal favourite? Overly promiscuous R.O.B.–now we know what he’s been up to all these years!
