Want to hang out with your favorite Marvel superheroes under giant domes? Of course you do.
Set to tour the US and Canada this spring, the Marvel Experience is a roadshow that promises a range of activities for Marvel fans. Interactive games and animated films will be on tap as will "the first-ever traveling motion-based ride." Visitors also will be able to interact directly with different Marvel superheroes and SHIELD agents.
Offered by Marvel and live entertainment producer Hero Ventures, the Marvel Experience will invite fans into a complex built to mimic a SHIELD installation, aka a "Mobile Command Center." Inside the complex is a maze of domes through which you travel to interact with the various exhibits. Filling up more than two acres of space, the complex will reach into the sky at more than six stories high.… Read more

As DIY security becomes more and more popular, we're seeing more and more options arrive on the market. The latest offerings come from Oplink Security: the $199.99 sensor-driven AlarmShield package, and the $349.99 TripleShield package, which adds a pair of wireless cameras for the surveillance-minded homeowner. With similar motion detectors, panic sirens, and contact sensors for doors and windows -- not to mention equivalent price levels for both the basic package and the camera-ready package -- Oplink seems ready to compete directly with iSmartAlarm.
The big difference between the two systems is that, unlike iSmartAlarm, Oplink charges … Read more
Nvidia's Shield gaming device is no one-off project for the company.
When asked about whether Nvidia would work on a follow-up to the Android-gaming device, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang would only say that he intends to continue investing in Shield.
"We developed (Shield) as a platform to nurture and grow the Android gaming market," Huang told CNET on Thursday. "To bring great games to Android will take multiple years. It's a long-term endeavor for us."
As Nvidia sees it, more sophisticated-looking games on Android will drive the need for more powerful processors, which is where … Read more
With Google Glass being released into the wild in the coming months, Google has begun to partner with different companies to roll out accessories for its computer-enabled eyeglasses.
On the Glass Explorers forum a new thread popped up Wednesday pointing to help pages that outline how the earbuds will work, who Google has partnered with for shades and shields, how Glass charging works, along with other material.
While none of this information has been officially announced, it is publicly available for users to peruse online.
The Santa Clara, Calif., graphics chipmaker said the Shield "Gamepad Mapper" allows users to create their own custom controls for thousands of games in the Google Play store, or users can use Nvidia's default profiles -- automatically downloaded from the cloud -- that are available for hundreds of top touch-based Android games. The new titles with Shield controller compatibility include NBA Jam and Angry Birds.
The changes are available immediately through … Read more
PrivaShield Gold Edition promises to enhance your privacy and security, but all it really does is delete junk files on schedule, and it leaves a bit to be desired in that task, too. For instance, the installer informed us that we'd need to upgrade to a Registered version to use definition logs. PrivaShield gives the distinct impression of an out-of-date tool gussied up as the latest thing; an impression not helped by offering to clean Netscape installations or its inability to recognize Firefox and Chrome in our system.
PrivaShield Gold's user interface is busy and not especially attractive … Read more

The effort is the official version of what the company … Read more
