Fan Remake of Tomb Raider 2 Using Unreal Engine 4

If you enjoyed the puzzle-platformer style of the old Tomb Raider games, but want better visuals, a fan is working on a remake of Tomb Raider 2 - using the Unreal Engine 4. He's been working on it for a while now, and there is a long way to go. That being said, there is a playable demo of some of the work he's got done. If you're a fan on the series, you should really check it out. It looks pretty solid for a fan-made remake.

New Surface hardware coming in October

Looks like Microsoft will be updating their Surface lineup on October 31st, just in time for the Christmas season. The Surface devices really took off however I think it's safe to say their last version (or two) haven't been able to dominate like the earlier version did so this new revision should be interesting. TechSpot has the story.

Microsoft on October 31 is hosting its annual Future Decoded conference at the ExCeL convention center in London. On Wednesday, the Redmond-based company revealed to The Verge that Panos Panay, corporate vice president of the devices group at Microsoft, will be speaking at the event.

Panay will join other Microsoft keynote speakers including Joseph Sirosh, Julia White, Chris Bishop and Mark Russinovich, among others.

Microsoft typically unveils new Surface-branded hardware in October and this year looks to be no exception.

Myths and Facts About Superi Intelligent AI

There are some legitimate concerns about AI - some of which you've probably thought about, and probably a bunch that you haven't. For instance, if there comes a time when we let AI make larger decisions on things that align with our human directives, what happens when the AI determines that is not the best course of action? Do we vote, impose our opinions and re-write the program, or let the AI decide. Intelligence doesn't require consciousness according to the producer of the video below. That could complicate things. I'm glad people are putting thought into this issue as I hadn't considered some of the ramifications.

New Mercedes-AMG Hybrid is Tech-Heavy

The new Mercedes-AMG car that was recently shown off in Frankfurt looks like a concept-car, but this beauty is a reality. It is powered by a miniscule 1.6L V6 hybrid engine that puts out more than a thousand horsepower and it takes this car over 217mph. It's a street legal Formula 1 car that will set you back $2.72 million USD. The cockpit is pretty incredible though and it does have AC - and a smartphone dock. So that's better than the Formula 1 sibling. Order yours while they last. Only 275 of them will be made.

Lian Li @ CES 2013

Lian Li was at CES once again this year and they brought a few interesting chassis to the show.  By interesting, I mean a beast, a thermal guru and a train.  Let's start with the beast.  The PC-D8000.  This case supposts the largest motherboards possible and complies to the HPTX standard.  Even with a motherboard as large as 15" x 13.6", you still will have room for 20 (that's right, twenty) 3.5" HDDs.  In addition to that, it has four USB 3.0 ports on the front and all of the other awesome features we've come to expect from the all-aluminum case manufacturer, Lian Li.

PC-D8000 Big Front

 

The PC-V850 is a case that is coming in the near future (hopefully) and it offers the standard Lian Li quality with a bit of a different way to manage thermal issues.  Once the side panel is on, the air intake comes from the rear and the deflector ensures that you are not sucking in hot air from the rear exhaust.  The chassis is sectioned off into several areas that are compartmentalized so that different components don't heat up each other.

 

The last and oddest thing that we've seen from Lian Li is the train PC case.  We've seen some pretty odd cases, that included sea shells, horses and a yeti, but we've never seen a moving train PC.  There is not much else to be said about this.
