Did you ever hear about Guitar Hero? It is a video game that a lot of players really enjoy playing. Even if you are not a guitar player, when you play this game you might feel like you are playing a real instrument. Guitar Hero games usually feature rock and metal tracks which you might enjoy if you are into this type of music. There are quite a lot of them so you won’t get bored by playing the same songs all over again. I also know that there are user created songs that can be played with Guitar Hero, but I don’t think that they are as high quality as the songs included by default. Very recently the developers of the original Guitar Hero launched a sequel called Guitar Hero: Metallica. This version of the game is going to feature tracks composed by the mentioned band.

Comments Off on Robots in Antarctica

We have seen robots operate in various circumstances, but not yet in Antarctica. This might change as scientists are working on a new type of robot. There are problems in having a robot work efficiently in Antarctica as there are multiple challenges associated with the harsh weather and the terrain. It is not uncommon that the terrain cracks and even shifts and those are not all of the problems. That is why the robots I am talking about look like a snowmobile. They are also equipped with technology sensors, gauges, and cameras in order to guide them. The work on those robots did not finish yet, but it is even interesting to look how progress is made in this field. We might be seeing a lot more robots in our near future.

Plans are wonderful, but they require watering and if a person has a lot of plants it can be time consuming. Additionally, going on a long vacation can be very dangerous for plans, as they need regular watering. Fortunately, there is a solution to this problem, namely self-watering pots which are being sold by a few companies. Basically they are sophisticated reservoirs which know when to water your plants. Of course, you will need to fill them up from time to time, but you can do it a lot more rarely, and you can go on a vacation owing that your plants will get watered. I think that those pots are a great innovation and they might become popular in the future.

Ok, so you bought your laptop and are preparing it to take it with you the next day to work or college. But are you ready for that? Do you think that it will be protected if it will be in your backpack? I do not think so. You need a carrying case. Laptops are fragile and can be damaged very easily. Even if you bought your laptop with some sort of basic carrying case, do not count on it to protect all the valuable components. It would be also good for you if additionally it could carry all the other accessories that you might wish to take with your laptop like mouse, mouse pad etc. Cases come in different sizes, shapes and are made from different material like even metal or leather. Finding the proper one for your laptop is definitely worthwhile.

Comments Off on April Fools’ Jokes

Internet it is a perfect place to be anonymous. No wonder that people take advantage out of this fact during April Fools’ Day to make jokes wherever possible As a matter of fact, not only individuals, but even companies seem to make jokes by tracking people into believing something. For example, last year during April Fools’ Day Blizzard, the creator of the most popular online game World of Warcraft, stated that it was working on a new title based on a popular movie. Of course, it was just a joke and I highly suggest that you do not take anything seriously during this day, especially if you read it over the Internet. Gamers are already speculating what joke will Blizzard come up with this year.
