Share This article Ever looked at your PC and thought: “Man, I wish this thing looked like a Star Destroyer, with integrated fiber optic lighting, a water-cooled GPU, and 3D printed detailing?” Enterprising custom PC builder Sander van der Velden, aka Asphiax, evidently did — and his new Venator-class Star Destroyer (dubbed the Yazi) is truly something to see. The Yazi will be shown at CES this year, and while I haven’t been able to locate actual dimensions, it’s clear from photographs that this is no small mod. The frame and body are made from aluminum, while the greebles (the fine detail patterns added to the exterior to make the shape more visually interesting) are 3D printed. The ship contains more than 50 meters of fiber optic cabling, and the sides and bridges are wired to give

kGoal, Photo Illustration: R. A. Di Ieso/Vocativ Is an advertisement for a tool that strengthens the pelvic floor muscles after pregnancy the same as penis enlargement pills or a pickup artist handbook? It is if it links to a website that also sells sex toys, according to Facebook. The company has rejected a series of ads for kGoal, a high-tech device for “pelvic floor fitness,” on the grounds that it violates the company’s ban on promoting “adult products or services.” The issue is that the kGoal ad campaign linked to its parent company’s website, which also sells vibrators, according to a Facebook spokesperson. Indeed, Minna Life, the San Francisco start-up that produces kGoal, sells two award-winning vibrators. The company’s CEO is critical of Facebook’s decision, citing the ways that

This Is Quite Possibly The Cutest Pile Of Stuffed Animals…Wait A Second, Is It?

Top Story
Sleeping animals are some of the cutest things you'll see on the planet. They're so small and adorable...the way they can fall asleep just about anywhere is simply ridiculous. This cute baby fell asleep around what he thought were his meerkat brethren. In reality, it's just a bunch of stuffed animals. Still, it's really hard to tell which one is the real meerkat and which ones are the squishy cuddle buddies. video-player-present [embedded content] To him, he's just taking a snooze amongst friends. What a confused, sleepy little guy. Hopefully no one disturbed this cutie's slumber...that would basically be a crime against humanity.

This Star Trek: The Next Generation Enterprise-D VR tour is a killer Unreal Engine 4 demo

Share This article As VR headsets like the Oculus Rift move closer to production, we’ve started to see more software showcasing what the format can achieve. In some cases, that’s been courtesy of expensive tech demos from existing studios — but sometimes, it’s dedicated fans that produce their own impressive work. A recent tour of Star Trek’s Enterprise-D is making the rounds, courtesy of Unreal Engine 4 and, in the future, the Oculus Rift. The goal of the project, according to the author, is to “Place you on board the ship. Walk the corridors. Explore the unseen rooms and communal areas. Hear the engines. See the screens. Fly the shuttlecraft. Exist as a member of the crew.” As the 12-minute YouTube demo makes clear, this is no idle boast — the tech demo takes you from landing in the

Share This article Since I run this site, it goes without saying I’m a tinkerer and a PC enthusiast. And for my latest rig, I wanted to build my first mini-ITX machine. After starting with a few pre-built 286s and 386s, I’ve been building my own PCs for over 20 years, and I have a history of eschewing giant full towers — even when I first started back in college in the early 1990s, when some gamer friends had 486 towers almost as tall as their desks. I went to college in Manhattan and lived in south Brooklyn. And if I was going to haul my beige desktop and 15-inch CRT back and forth between New York City boroughs on long weekends and holidays — because I couldn’t be without my gaming PC for a single minute — it had better be easy to carry. That preference essentially stuck throughout
