December 1st at 5:18 PM

The United States government has just published an iOS app that uses augmented reality to identify dollar bills and create three dimensional models of the White House on top of them. No, you didn’t accidentally click over to The Onion, this is an actual real thing.

The app, which is called 1600 (iOS, Android) — in reference to the White House address of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue — utlizes the iPhone camera to search detect the paper currency. Then, like magic, a little 3D White House pops up, complete with a waving flag and a flurry of activity.

Watch Jyn Erso go to town on some stormtroopers in the first official ‘Rogue One’ clip

It’s officially December, which means we’re closer than we’ve ever been to the release of the first ever Star Wars spinoff movie. In the days leading up to the launch of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, you can expect to see Felicity Jones (who plays Jyn Erso in the movie) on every talk show and magazine cover in sight.

That was the case on Wednesday night, when she appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to discuss the training that she had to undergo in preparation for her part, but we also got to see the first official clip from the movie.

DirecTV Now is off to a really bad start

There’s just something about TV services that get human blood boiling, and it seems DirecTV’s much hyped DirecTV Now cable alternative hasn’t been able to shake that curse. The service’s Twitter account and support forums have been absolutely buried with user complaints ranging from channels not working to customers not being able to even sign in to the service whatsoever. +

Blow through all 8 Harry Potter movies in under 80 minutes with this supercut

Considering how well it’s done at the box office, there’s a good chance you’ve already seen Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find ThemIt’s a fun romp through a familiar world, but it’ll probably leave you wanting the good old days with Harry, Ron, Hermione and the rest of the classic Potter gang.

That’s to be expected, but not all of us have 20 hours to marathon all eight Harry Potter movies. Thankfully, that’s exactly why we have supercuts.

Google Home vs. Amazon Echo

Google Home talking to Amazon Echo will entertain you all day long

Google and Amazon have the two best voice-enabled virtual home assistants in Google Home and Amazon Echo. Both devices were on sale through Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and each of them should be a great addition to your smart home project. You don’t need to buy both gadgets because they’re both able to pull off basically the same stunts. But if you do get both of them, you can make them talk to each other. That’s what one user did, and of course, there was a camera present. More →

NES Classic Wireless Controller Adapter

This NES Classic wireless controller adapter is the perfect accessory for the console you’ll never own

Despite its limited availability, the NES Classic Edition is one of the hottest gifts of the holiday season. It’s well-designed, packed with great games, affordable (in theory) and our review was largely positive. But there is one major issue with the mini NES — its controller only stretches a couple of feet from the console.

It’s not a deal breaker, but it is a hassle, which is why 8bitdo’s new Retro Receiver might just be the essential accessory for NES Classic owners.

Netflix’s new offline download feature has one massive drawback

Netflix’s new offline download feature has one massive drawback

Netflix answered the streaming world’s prayers today by adding the ability to download movies and shows locally on your device, allowing you to watch them later without using data. It’s a fantastic feature and it works quite well in the short time I’ve been testing it, but I’ve also stumbled across a serious oversight.

This isn’t a deal-breaker, but if you’re a Chromecast or AirPlay user, it’s going to definitely frustrate you: Netflix has configured its app to make locally saved content unplayable via AirPlay or Chromecast, preventing downloaded movies and tv shows from being watched on anything other than the device on which they were downloaded.

Netflix now lets you download movies to watch offline

Netflix is the most popular subscription streaming service in the western world, but if there’s been one demand that it’s simply never been able to fill it’s the ability to watch movies without a live internet connection.

The company revealed the new feature in a blog post, noting that it’s the perfect solution for users who are about to board a plane and don’t want to pay for pricey in-flight Wi-Fi, which is most certainly is.  More →
