    Microsoft Creates Smartphone Tech for Virtual Sword
    Gear  |  Tech  


    A team at Microsoft Research has created a hardware localization technology that enables you to play a multi-player sword fighting game using only smartphones. To play SwordFight, two players aim their phones at each other and move aiming for each other's handset, and try to jab at the other person’s handset. If a player hits within six inches of their opponent's handset, the opponent loses a point. It's all measured via the phone's accelerometer and digital compass, and the addition of the new little chirp allows the phones to know how close they got to each other. Microsoft Research team have developed this system called FAR. It's a system where one smartphone can locate another smartphone and measure its distance via chirps.One phone sends out a chirp, and a second phone determines the distance and the position of the first phone by measuring the time it takes for the chirp to travel to its speaker.

    Titty Twirlers
    Gear  |  Gadget  




    Titty Twirlers are basically like those little propeller beanies you see nerds wear in cartoons, but for your boobs. According to the creator Jesse James Salucci, a slight breeze from a walk will make them twirl slowly, but they'll spin really fast while biking or on a particularly windy day… so basically they're made to be worn outside. Check out the videos to see them in action.
