Got hordes of old photos you don’t know what to do with? Well, if you’ve got access to a 3D printer, what about blessing them with a third dimension? That’s what Instructables stalwart Amanda Ghassaei (of 3D printed records fame) has done using an Objet Connex500, some algorithmic wizardry and a bit of left field thinking. The images, rather than full 3D renderings, are still meant to be viewed in 2D, but use different thicknesses of print to create a silhouette effect. Ghassaei converts images to black and white, and assigns different printing densities to each grayscale pixel value. The results are surprisingly intricate, and do still impart a sense of texture. Fortunately for those interested in doing their own, this is Instructables, so, all you need to do is follow along at the source.

Dell introduced Project Ophelia to the world at CES back in January, and now it’s revealed shipping timeframes for the Android-powered MHL stick. Ophelia will ship in May to developers, with cable providers and telecoms able to buy it in July. A consumer release will follow shortly thereafter. When it does ship, the tiny device (about the same size as a portable USB stick) will convert any HDMI-ready display into an Android computer. Naturally Google Play is built right in, so you’ll have access to your entire library of Android software. Essentially, Project Ophelia is what you make of it; it can act as a portable gaming console much in the same vein as Ouya. Or you can go the set-top box route and stream content from Netflix, Hulu, and…
This is a shot of Toy Tale’s Buzz Lightyear envisioned in genuine life by DeviantARTist DanLuVisiArt (follow the link for a story the artist made up about Buzz that’s actually touching). He appears like a quite cool man. Also, kind of like John Hamm, who’s seen me stall my automobile trying to pull out of a parking space prior to. Which, for the record, never ever would have taken place if I hadn’t seen him standing there. I got nervous, like attempting to pee with a breathtakingly handsome man viewing.
Thanks to Cammie, who said something totally inappropriate about what she ‘d do to Buzz which I cannot even repeat below, but yes, it did include a jetpack.

Question by tulsabengal: What is the difference between the xbox 360 wireless adapter and the xbox live wireless adapter?
I have an xbox 360 , Can I use the xbox live wireless adapter that comes in a black box. Or do I have to shell out the extra money and get the little white one in the clear plastic packaging?
Answer by theo
proablay going to have to buy the white one. i have any it works pretty good for me. the black one in the box is probably designed for the original xbox instead of the 360 and plus they have a spot for the little wireless adapter on the back of the 360 for it so its convient and not in the way

Electric vehicles still have a few obstacles that prevent them from going fully mainstream. These typically center on the price of the vehicle itself (though this is changing), and its range. One other barrier has also been the price of home-based chargers. Now, Bosch is offering a level 2 (quicker than the usually cheaper, and slower level 1) home charging system for just $ 450. For that price you get 16 amp charging and a 12 foot cord. There are two other options that increase the amperage to 30, with a choice of 18 or 25 foot cables — costing $ 593 and $ 749 respectively. These don’t include any additional networking features and so on, but for this price, and reduced reliance on external charging networks, it’d be worth clearing out the garage for.

Windows 8 has had its share of detractors since its launch, and today Microsoft’s vice president of corporate communications responded to recent reports that paint the operating system as a failure. In a blog post Frank X. Shaw points to two pieces in particular — one by the Financial Times and the other by The Economist — that use the likely return of the Start button as evidence that the company is backtracking on its initial vision. Stating that the articles are examples of “sensationalism” and “hyperbole” intended to drive traffic rather than provide “nuanced analysis,” Shaw writes that Microsoft’s reaction to user complaints is actually a positive for the company.

Gordon Freeman, in your head. Well, that’s the plan, with Oculus now offering official beta support for a headset-based Half-Life 2. There’s a few known issues to iron out already, including an overly-dim UI and issues with the zoom. But even at this early stage, it appears to lack any gameplay deal-breakers we’ve seen elsewhere. As mentioned by Valve’s Joe Ludwig on the Oculus developer forums, however, the current build is a bit rougher around the edges compared to the Team Fortress 2 beta that launched earlier this year. Developers with the necessary Rift hardware can pick up the files on Steam or follow the developments on Oculus’ own forums — but no comments about headcrab hats and wearables, okay?

Ouya has revealed it will delay the retail launch of its Android-based gaming console by three weeks until June 25th. In an interview with Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman, Polygon reports that the self-imposed delay is to ensure that the company has enough units to “satisfy all the early orders,” and to make sure there’s enough stock ahead of its public launch. According to Joystiq, Ouya has also listened to early feedback on its controller design, expanding the button holes to ensure that they no longer stick — something we noted in our review of the console.
