Julian Oliver, from New Zealand, has put together an awesome interactive cube game, called levelHead. The idea behind it is pretty simple; software is used to detect the cube's motion and a set of digital cameras are then utilised to display an appropriate image, depending on your response. Jump for a video. The game being worked on currently relies upon guiding a wondering, lost sole through the cubetastic world. Each tilt of the hexahedron guides the walker in the corresponding direction. The aim is to direct the bi-pedal show off to the exit of the virtual world contained within. Eventually, there will be multiple blocks, all interlinked, making for one crazy toy, indeed. Julian plans to release his work as an open source project in the near future, designed primarily for Debian, Ubuntu or Linux. If that explanation has left you confused and itchy, catch the video and all will make sense, we promise. [Technabob]

It doesn't have the same track record for improved performance as Intel. In the past it's stumbled, barely keeping pace with its larger competitor. If competition is going to be sustained - if we're going to have long term competition that drives down prices and puts faster chips in our computers, than even a minor architecture change from AMD needs to have big and speedy results. The second generation of Ryzen does.
Despite the fact they are flesh-eating guerilla warriors capable of thoroughly thrashing a vastly technologically superior foe, everyone's takeaway about the Ewoks is that they're cute, stress-lowering, fuzzy teddy bears. But Star Wars. Battlefront II has added a new mode that reminds us that these teddies can be utterly terrifying when you're their target.
