At this year’s PAX South, I spoke with Carlos Rocha, the CEO and founder of Below the Game. Carlos founded the company in 2009 with a desire to make meaningful storytelling games.

With a passion for literature, he sought to combine his readings with games in an interactive way never seen before, and during an experimental project four years ago Haimrik was born.

At this year’s PAX South, I got to play a cooperative puzzle game called Death Squared created by SMG Studio. In Death Squared, each player controls a bot who is trying to escape a laboratory, but with every move comes the chance that a trap will be triggered and a fellow companion will be doomed. To pass each stage, all characters must reach their respective portals unharmed.

Beat Cop Game Screenshot at PAX South

At this year’s PAX South I was introduced to a video game called Beat Cop, a point and click adventure where you play a cop on the mean streets of Brooklyn. Someone has framed you for a crime you didn’t commit, so now as a parking enforcement officer you must find more clues and figure out who the real guilty party is. All while doing your day job of handing out tickets and stopping other violations.

PAX Unplugged Logo

At this year’s PAX South, Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik, the creators of the popular web comic Penny Arcade, announced a brand new Expo called PAX Unplugged. Unlike the current PAX conventions, which have a large video game focus, PAX Unplugged will concentrate exclusively on tabletop games. “With the rise of popularity of board games, we wanted to provide a dedicated space where fans can come together,” said Holkins. “We will continue to have tabletop games at every PAX, but Unplugged will focus on stepping away from the TV, monitor and phone to foster face-to-face multiplayer experiences.”

In conjunction with ReedPOP, this sixth addition to the current line-up of PAX events will debut this year from November 17th-19th in Philadelphia’s Pennsylvania Convention Center. Read ReedPOP and Penny Arcade’s vision for it here below.

CES 2017: Bosch’s Plan For IOT? How About Everything
DwayneD   |  @   |  

Bosch Connect Everything

There are a LOT of companies peddling products here at CES. We’ve got smart cameras that auto-send images to Facebook and double-washing machines that allow you to clean two separate loads of clothes at once without ruining them or taking up more space.

But among all of the keynotes, Bosch stuck out, as board member Werner Struth spoke about their plans for the future. The private company’s leader of North and South American operations managed to speak with certainty not about the next whizbang product or another device was going to be the next big thing, but rather about how combining two mundane technologies (home appliances and internet connectivity) and ending up with extraordinary products. He’s spent the last year “figuring out how technology can do better for all of us.”

CES 2017: iKeybo: The Light Keyboard (Literally)
DwayneD   |  @   |  

iKeybo Light Keyboard #1

Somewhere and sometime in some imagined future, protagonists in fashionable yet slightly over-fitted clothing have stealthily stolen in to some grand facility, mercilessly protected by a merciless faction, hell bent on doing something dastardly. They access a panel with their device and a keyboard is projected onto the surface in front of them.

Or maybe that was me and a few other reporters gathered around the founder of a Kickstarter campaign here at CES 2017. Serafim Technologies, a Taiwanese-based company led by CEO GZ Chen, has a new toy called iKeybo in store for all those who’ve imagined what it would be like to set words down my tapping nothing but mere light.

Amazon Echo & Dish Hopper

In case you needed another reason to go Alexa rather than Google, the media gods have got one for you. The avalanche of CES 2017 press conferences hadn’t even begun when the news came in from Dish Network. In addition to their Sling Box and their 2014 breakthrough, no-contract live-streaming cable service, SlingTV, Dish decided to take another leap forward in delivering television entertainment to their consumers — support for Amazon‘s Alexa Voice Services or AVS.

Dish users with Hopper DRV devices of any generation will be able to control them using their voice through Amazon’s Echo or Echo Dot hardware.
