NES Emulator Transforms Classic Games Into Awesome 3D Sprites 

Some of the most iconic NES games around have gotten a makeover — and you can experience it first-hand in your browser. If you’re running Firefox, that is.

These 3D Headphones Will Instantly Calibrate To Your Head

When I mentioned these headphones, one of my colleagues immediately quipped that it sounded like snake oil. And I can understand their reluctance, because it sounds too good to be true.

A set of 3D headphones so advanced that they instantly calibrate to your anatomy the second you put them on. It’s a Kickstarter project. It has almost two months to go, but it’s already surpassed its funding goal three times over.

I Wish Video Games Had High-Speed Gesture Tech Like This
