Women as Background Decoration: Part 1 - Tropes vs Women in Video Games

Gear  |  Video
"In this episode we explore the Women as Background Decoration trope which is the subset of largely insignificant non-playable female characters whose sexuality or victimhood is exploited as a way to infuse edgy, gritty or racy flavoring into game worlds. These sexually objectified female bodies are designed to function as environmental texture while titillating presumed straight male players. Sometimes they're created to be glorified furniture but they are frequently programmed as minimally interactive sex objects to be used and abused"

Smart rifle uses Google Glass as a remote sight let you shoot round
Gear  |  Video


US firm TrackingPoint has revealed a smart rifle that can show a live sight on Google Glass. The smart rifle works by sending a live video feed from the rifle's sight to Glass - allowing soldiers to simply point their rifle without needing to be in a position to see their target. The app, called ShotView, streams video in real time from the Heads Up Display of a TrackingPoint rifle to a smart phone or table, or Glass.
'When paired with wearable technology, PGFs can provide unprecedented benefits to shooters, such as the ability to shoot around corners, from behind low walls, and from other positions that provide exceptional cover,' the firm said. Cool, check out the video!
