Oculus Rift’s Tuscany demo was built with a good ol’ fashioned keyboard and mouse setup in mind, but now it’s unofficially scored support for motion controls. Sixense, the outfit behind Razer’s Hydra, has cooked up a custom version of the Italian-themed sample for use with their controller, and it gives gamers a pair of floating hands to pick up and manipulate objects. Originally shown at GDC, the tweaked experience is now up for grabs, and can even be played by those who don’t have a Rift — albeit with just the controller’s perks.
Booting up the retooled package offers users a new 3D menu, giving them options for arm length, crouching, head bobbing and a crosshair. It’s not the first project to combine Rift with Hydra, but it certainly helps illustrate the potential of such a setup. Sixense says it plans to release updates and the source code, and it recommends folks sign up for their project-specific email list and keep an eye on their forums for word on availability. Hit the source links below for the download, or head past the break to catch Road to VR’s hands-on with the Hydra-friendly Tuscan villa.

While there are a number of unofficial BBC News apps, one in particular has caught the attention of the British broadcaster. Lawrence Gripper, a technical account manager at Microsoft, has been forced to remove his BBC News app from the Windows Phone and Windows 8 app stores. Describing the apps as a “labor of love,” Gripper revealed the removal of the apps on his personal blog. “It is with great sadness today that I removed both applications from the store.”
Gripper developed both of the applications, that provide access to BBC News articles, before joining Microsoft — although the company encourages employees to build apps. They’re still available temporarily, and a number of other unofficial BBC apps remain listed in the Windows…
There’s a golden guideline for the HTC HD2: if there’s a new mobile OS, the HD2 has to get a port. It’s just about a law of nature, then, that Evervolv at the XDA-Developers forums has produced a pre-alpha interface of Android 4.1 for the initially Windows Mobile-based legend. More components are working than not in spite of the incredibly very early state, with the video camera, Google Now and web browser being the staying bugaboos. We’re still warned that the experimental firmware isn’t indicated for day-to-day utilise, but there’s every purpose of making the release stable– good news for anybody who’s eager to avoid a flash-in-the-pan ROM. If that happens, the HD2 will have had almost as several lives as a cat.

No thanks to AT&T, owners of the carrier-branded HTC One X can now unlock their phone’s bootloader on the HTCdev website. The process works by altering the handset’s identifier, which causes the One X to appear as a Rogers unit on HTC’s servers. While the instructions should be quite simple for those with the proper knowhow, they require knowledge and proper configuration of ADB, use of a hex editor and a rooted handset. Many users have already reported success with this method, but keep in mind that AT&T might not smile on the trickery if you ever need to seek warranty repair. Naturally, all of this frustration could’ve been easily avoided had Ma Bell simply considered the needs of power users in the first place, but until the day comes when the carrier rights its ways, just know that eager hackers have a tendency to come out on top.

Last year’s rollout of a refreshed UI across Google’s essential suite of web apps proved that the company isn’t afraid to experiment with design. Now, a group of Russian designers have offered up a video containing some additional changes they’d like to see at some point in the future. Titled “Google New Features,” at first glance the YouTube clip almost looks like it came directly from the folks in Mountain View, focusing on usability upgrades to Calendar, Maps, and Contacts. Sadly, the maligned Google Reader layout doesn’t seem to be on the design firm’s radar.
The concept video teases some intriguing updates to Calendar, including the ability to create events spanning multiple days from the default view, and a feature that auto…
This is my visual interpretation of the song “5.9.78″ by Boards of Canada from their cassette release “A Few Old Tunes”. Should be playable in high quality. The next time I do one of these I’ll make sure to use clips that are widescreen so I can make it HD. Speaking of which, the clip used is “The Story” by ACI Productions, ironically made in 1969. I think of this song to be very explorational, organic in every sense of the word, and that’s what led me to choose this. What do you think?

Nokia’s MeeGo’d pillowcase smartphone has been given a 90-degree twist. This new landscape mode works across the three main navigation screens and can be accessed through N9Tweak, an unofficial mod that can be downloaded through the phone’s web browser. Any compatible apps will also launch lengthways, all of which should help alleviate those N900 pangs.
While it may have arrived with the Nexus name, Google’s latest flagship has appeared without Wallet functionality, despite the inclusion of NFC hardware. Fortunately, it hasn’t taken long for a few eager Android tinkerers to get it working on the LTE model. There’s still a few hiccups and bugs and the phone needs to be rooted and unlocked, so consider yourself forewarned: you’re on your own if it bricks. Still, it works — user Mike Beauchamp was able to add extra funds to his account and make his first NFC McDonalds purchase. His video demonstration awaits after the break, Nexus-toting risk-takers can find a full step-by-step guide at the Google Plus link below.

Now that your AT&T-locked Samsung Galaxy S can occasionally find satellites, you’re probably hoping that the carrier kicks out some creamy Froyo as well, and it looks like that day isn’t far away — an unofficial but seemingly feature-complete Android 2.2 build is available for the Captivate right now. The faithful fiends at xda-developers have got build UCJI6 ready for download, which brings a mobile hotspot, Adobe Flash Player 10.1, the JIT compiler, Media Hub support, and a host of UI tweaks to boot. Instructions are available at the links below to walk you through the process, assuming you’ve already got root, have backed up all your files and are willing to take the risks in case this leaked build isn’t as official as it seems. See a video walkthrough of the new software right after the break.
