IllumiRoom: That Next Level Video Game Shizz

by | April 29, 2013 | In Games, News, Technology Comments Off on IllumiRoom: That Next Level Video Game Shizz

All you need is a Kinect enabled projector and IllumiRoom will extend your video games out into the room with you. IllumiRoom from Microsoft Research is taking gaming technology from “seen it before” to “holy shit! it’s the future.” The whole thing calibrates itself and even works with games that it’s not built for. The Kinect camera reads the physical layout of your space in real time, then uses that to bring explosions from FPS games, atmospheric and lighting conditions, and other effects out of the TV. Just watch the video. It’s hard to explain, but once you see this crazy futuristic mess, you’re about to be all SHUTTUP AND TAKE MY MONEY. Unless you don’t care about video games….then you probably won’t.

IllumiRoom - WHAAAAAAAT?

Jay-Z on Howard Stern (2012)

by | April 26, 2013 | In Music, People Comments Off on Jay-Z on Howard Stern (2012)

Jay-Z went on Howard Stern to promote his book Decoded. What followed was a really in depth look into what made him who he is, and how he dealt with his life’s different turns. Topics include his relationship with his dad, growing up in the Marcy projects, his dreams and aspirations, and his views on Rihanna and Kanye as artists he manages. I only respect Jay-Z more after watching this interview.

Howard Stern is more serious than usual and plays the part of the interviewer as well as a fan of the book. He seems like he not only respects Jay-Z as an artist but as a person.
