We try to feature some of the most insane, ridiculous, fantastic homemade inventions we can find on BGR on a semi-regular basis so when Engadget shared a video of a YouTuber wielding a 200-watt laser bazooka, we knew we had to see it.
A few weeks ago, I started receiving incessant notifications on my iPhone that my iCloud storage was nearly full.
You won’t be surprised to learn that a vast majority of that storage space was being taken up by photos and videos I hadn’t sorted through in months, so I proceeded to scroll through the list and delete the ones I didn’t want, one at a time.
Had I known about Magic Cleaner, this process would have been much easier.
One of the biggest surprises of E3 2016 was the lack of new hardware on display. Although Microsoft used its press conference to unveil both the Xbox One S and Project Scorpio, Nintendo and Sony decided to save their hardware announcements for a later date. There’s no telling how long we’ll have to wait to see the NX, but it sounds like we might only be a few months out from a PS4 Slim.
Despite the renewed zeal of the world’s leaders to limit the impact of climate change, it might already be too late. According to a new report from Nature, “the window for limiting warming to below 1.5 degrees Celsius with high probability and without temporarily exceeding that level already seems to have closed.”
After spending weeks taking suggestions from users all over the world, Google has finally settled on a name for the next version of Android. The company revealed on Thursday that the latest OS will be called Android Nougat.
It has been a very, very long time since a peripheral has shaken up the game industry. EyeToy was a bust, Kinect died a slow, excruciating death and there’s a pretty good chance you’d completely forgotten about the GBA e-Reader.
All of those hardware add-ons failed (or are in the process of failing), but it never really mattered. They took a risk; it didn’t pan out; we all moved on.
With all of that failure in the rearview mirror, PlayStation VR has a mighty tough row to hoe, but if VR really is the future of gaming, it simply can’t fail.
When it comes to technological advancements, there are always peaks and valleys.
Wi-Fi seems to have been stuck in one of those valleys for quite some time, but on Wednesday, the Wi-Fi Alliance unveiled a list of features that it will require new products to support in order for them to be part of the second wave of its certification program, coming later this year.
The critical reaction to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice wasn’t quite what Warner Bros. and DC were expecting.
Sitting at 27% on Rotten Tomatoes, Zach Snyder’s franchise-building film took a beating from critics when it released back in March, but based on early reviews, the Ultimate Edition of the film (which as now available as a digital download) is leaps and bounds better than the original cut.
Netflix has more hits than misses, but one of its most surprising hits is BoJack Horseman — a dark comedy about a washed up sitcom star contending with substance abuse, depression and an inability to find work.
Oh, and the main character is a walking, talking horse played by Will Arnett.
AI chatbots have garnered a great deal of buzz ever since Facebook brought them to its Messenger platform earlier this year. Some analysts are already claiming that these bots are going to be the next big thing in the industry, but other than a select few diamonds in the rough, we haven’t seen many that have impressed us.
DoNotPay is one of those diamonds.
The first major content update for Windows 10 finally has a release date.
On Wednesday, Microsoft announced that Windows 10 Anniversary Edition — a free update for all Windows 10 users — is launching on August 2nd. The update was originally unveiled at Microsoft’s Build Developer Conference in March, but the company wasn’t ready to show off all of the new features and upgrades.
Now, with just a few weeks until launch, the curtain has been pulled back.
There are few games that receive as much attention from the modding community as The Elder Scrolls series. Creative fans have designed new clothes, tweaked the combat system and even built entirely new landmasses inside of Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim over the past decade or so, but the most impressive mods of all are the ones that require the most work: total conversions.
Working at Google might not be all fun and games, as several former employees explained in a Quora thread earlier this year, but there’s no question that the perks offered by the company are virtually unrivaled in the industry.
One of the coolest perks for creative Googlers who want to express themselves has to be The Garage — a collaborative workshop through which Business Insider was lucky enough to take a tour earlier this month.
