The actor behind Grand Theft Auto 5 character Franklin has got the game's fanbase salivating for a single-player expansion all over again.
An Instagram photo posted yesterday by Shawn Fonteno, Franklin's voice and mo-cap artist, shows the actor wearing a motion capture suit at GTA developer Rockstar.
GTA5 has yet to receive any campaign DLC, despite originally launching all the way back in the autumn of 2013.
Rockstar originally said it was working on "some very exciting" extra story additions, planned for launch before the end of 2014.
But when asked what had happened to this content in September 2015, with nothing in sight still, Rockstar admitted it was then entirely focused on supporting its successful - and incredibly lucrative - Grand Theft Auto Online.
"Right now our focus is on GTA Online which has exceeded our expectations," Rockstar North design director Imran Sarwar said.
"We currently have all key members of the team that launched Grand Theft Auto 5 focused on supporting GTA Online in every capacity".
Grand Theft Auto Online was the single largest source of profit for Rockstar's parent company Take-Two during its last financial quarter.
So might there be hope now, after all? Fonteno previously said he had worked on material for GTA5 DLC back in 2014 - which would fit with the timeframe in which Rockstar was initially planning single-player content for launch.
Pre-orders voor de Oculus Rift opende deze week, maar voordat je die 699 euro uitgeeft, moet je eerst even checken of je computer sterk genoeg is voor de nieuwe VR headset.
In mei vorig jaar, onthulde Oculus VR al de aanbevolen systeemeisen voor de "volledige Rift ervaring," die niet verandert zijn op het aantal benodigde USB 3.0 ports na, in plaats van twee heb je er nu drie nodig.
Konami heeft aangekondigd dat de Metal Gear Online PC beta morgen begint.
Volgens een Konami Twitch live stream kunnen spelers in het bezit van Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain zich inschrijven voor de beta en hem downloaden vanaf 07:00 uur Benelux tijd.
Naast de beta-onthulling liet de ontwikkelaar nieuwe DLC content voor Metal Gear Online zien, waaronder een nieuwe map die lijkt op Metal Gear Solid V's Mother Base. Een nieuwe knife werd ook getoond tijdens de korte gameplay-sessie. Metal Gear Online is al sinds 6 oktober 2015 beschikbaar voor consoles.
Vorige maand kondigde Konami aan dat er nieuwe DLC en een Survival-modus in ontwikkeling is voor de online multiplayer-game die gratis is voor iedereen met Metal Gear Solid V.
Google and NASA engineers announced that tests with the D-WAVE 2X, the quantum computer developed by them, showed that it’s 100 million times fasterthan an ordinary computer. The impressive record was achieved in a test in which the D-WAVE 2X ran an optimization problem and found a solution much faster than a conventional computer, using a single-core processor.
A graph showing the relative performance of the D-Wave and some simulated quantum computing algorithms. At the high end (far right) the difference is on the order of 108.
Quantum computers are one of the greatest dreamed technological achievements and are gradually becoming a reality. The reason for such a great expectation behind this is the potential processing capacity of such equipment in contrast to conventional systems.
As the name says, a quantum computer uses principles of quantum mechanics to work. While normal computers calculate and process information from bits, composed of binary values 1 and 0, the quantum machines use qubits, which can assume the values 0 and 1 simultaneously. This may seem like a small detail but it makes a quantum computer much more agile in heavy processing.
To give you an idea of its processing capacity, what the D-WAVE 2X takes one second to process, a common PC would take 10,000 years. In addition to the natural interest of Google in this technology to accelerate the myriad of services offered via the Internet, NASA plans to apply this technology in demanding tasks such as orbital calculations, air traffic control and mapping of climate change and the dynamic behavior Earth’s atmosphere.

Ever missed the best part of a movie cause you fell asleep? Sometimes, no matter how interesting the movie is, it’s just been a harsh day, and a few sips of wine after starting your favorite Netflix show is sure to put you right to sleep. But as always, technology has its ways of making our lives more comfortable, or in this case, allowing you to get comfortable without missing your show.
So thinking about us, the poor souls that fall asleep in the middle of our favorite show,Netflix created a pais of smart socks able to detect if you doze off and it automatically pauses your show. The “Netflix socks” use an Arduino microcontroller, batteries, an accelerometer, a button, LED lights, a pair of socks of course and a piece of felt. The accelerometer is responsible for sensing when the user stops moving, at which time the LED light starts flashing, warning that the program will be paused by the system.
The best part of this is that Netflix has actually revealed a step-by-step DIY guide so everyone can make their own ‘Netflix socks’ at home.
