Geek Tech: A Glimpse Into The Future; Are YOU Ready For Electronic Cereal Boxes?
The Movie God   |  

Is this the future? Some wild technology is here right now, and it could just be revving up to change the world as we know it.

At the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, many demonstrations were shown off. One of them involved a new wireless technology that would deliver a whole new type of power source to our homes and beyond.

For the demonstration, Fulton Innovation — the technology’s creator — brought along some shelving and surfaces that look pretty much like any other shelving or surface you might look at. What’s not seen, however, is power surging through these surfaces, which makes some very interesting things possible. The most entertaining of these, for those who aren’t interested in the scientific stuff, are cereal boxes; they look just like regular cereal boxes, naturally, but when placed on these special surfaces, the cereal boxes illuminate playfully. Something sure to catch the eye of any passing child. But that, my friends, is just the beginning.

You can see a much more in-depth video of these crazy-cool cereal boxes and the even crazier technology behind them, as well as read about some more useful possibilities by heading on over to the other side now.

Who Needs 3D? Korea Takes Their ‘Avatar’ In 4D!
The Movie God   |  

4D Movies

I’m not big on this whole 3D craze, as those who read the site might have been able to tell. It works for some movies — like James Cameron‘s Avatar, of course — but there is absolutely no need for every movie made to have so many dimensions.

But as 3D is taking over your movie theaters, do not think for one moment that it ends there. No, no — there is indeed a fourth dimension out there in the great beyond, and the technology is well on its way as we speak!

Reports out of Seoul, South Korea share that 4D is no new thing to Koreans. Last year, they set up a special theater in one of their largest chains that would allow them to offer the perfect movie/ride combination, and began with movies like Journey to the Center of the Earth. Since then, they’ve added a few more of these specialty screens, and have been been preparing for Avatar since last summer. While these movies play, over THIRTY special effects are set to add this new dimension to your experience, including light water spraying, lights and lasers, smells such as explosions/gunfire, gusts of wind, and even moving seats!

Good Choices Or Bad Choices: ‘Fable 3’ To Use Project Natal, Charge For Items?
The Movie God   |  

Fable III

In an announcement that comes as no surprise at all, Lionhead Studios Creative Director Peter Molyneaux confirmed that Fable III will be compatible with the Microsoft motion sensor technology currently known only as Project Natal. It has been rumored that Natal will be ready to go some time in 2010, but it’s doubtful that this third chapter in the beloved Fable franchise will require the sure-to-be-pricey addition to your Xbox 360 system.

No details were included as to how the system would apply if you play Fable III using it, but it could be really good and it could be really bad. When Natal was shown off at this year’s past E3 Expo (Click to read about E3 & watch the Project Natal demos), the demonstrations blew minds (for the most part), with Lionhead and Molyneaux’s introduction of the boy Milo as the real jaw-dropping moment. Natal was also promoted as the future of gaming, where people will be able to play all of their games with no controllers at all, using only their body and movement. In these two things is where we find the possible pros and cons.
