Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation spends $200M on toilet technology

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates unveiled a futuristic toilet Tuesday that doesn’t need water or sewers and uses chemicals to turn human waste into fertilizer. It is the brainchild of research projects funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the world’s biggest private philanthropy organization. There are multiple designs of the toilet but all work by separating liquid and solid waste. “The current toilet simply sends the waste away in the water, whereas these toilets don’t have the sewer,” Gates said. “They take both the liquids and solids and do chemical work on it, including burning it in most cases.”

A 70-year-old man in Taiwan has gone viral for playing Pokémon Go with 11 phones attached to his bicycle. Chen San-yuan has made headlines internationally for the strange setup. Chen also keeps external batteries and charging cables on him so he can enjoy up to 20 hours of battery life per phone.

It looks like there’s a problem with the hitbox for new Overwatch hero Ashe

As u/DarkyPaky discovered, the latest addition to Overwatch might need a hit box adjustment, as hers is currently very noticeably oversized. It appears that not only does the hitbox for Ashe’s head include her wide-brimmed hat, but it also seems to extend above her visible model entirely. Ashe has one of the smaller character models in the game, but as it stands she might well be one of the easiest to land a headshot on right now – a problem for a hero with only 200 points of health.

The best weapon in ‘Just Cause 4’ is Mother Nature

Just Cause 4 arrives at the end of a busy season of open world games. Fortunately, the series has always done things differently from the likes of Assassin’s Creed, Read Dead Redemption, Far Cry and the rest. It’s the game that coaxes you into causing destruction and explosions, offering a shamelessly hard-boiled physics playground for you cut loose inside. During a lengthy playtime session last week with what appears to be very close to the final game, Just Cause 4 begs to be live-streamed, clipped and shared on Twitch, Twitter, Reddit, Discord and everywhere else.

I miss being surprised by technology

Google’s 2018 launch event was a piece of corporate theater, like so many before it, to unveil a new smartphone.

Not because of the products, or the presenters, but because it lacked one key ingredient: surprise.

Essential is reportedly working on an AI phone that operates through voice commands

While Essential’s first device has a cult following among those who prioritize quick Android updates, it became clear in May that it would never see a follow-up. A report from Bloomberg revealed that the company had canceled a second Essential Phone and put itself up for sale. However, over the past several months, the company has quietly chugged along, continuing to push out lightning-fast security patches. Now, a new report from Bloomberg states that the company is indeed working on a second device — but it’s not at all like its first product. According to the publication’s tipsters, the handset is an anti-smartphone with a small screen that relies primarily on voice commands.

Project Zero hunts down vulnerabilities and companies are given 90 days to fix them before the findings are made public. In this case, Silvanovich said that a patch rolled out for Android on September 28 and was applied for iOS on October 3.

Take A Look At Fallout 76’s Full Map

Fallout 76 is a major new evolution for the long-running series, as we got to find out in our recent hands-on session. It takes the nuclear war ravaged wasteland that we’re accustomed to exploring in isolation and turns it into an always-online multiplayer game, opening it up for players to come together. Fallout 76 will enable dozens of players to explore and adventure together–either as friends or enemies, so naturally, the game world will have to be big enough to accommodate them. On top of that it also needs to have enough activities to keep them engaged for hours on end.

Just Cause 4 Has A New Tornado-filled Trailer, Square Enix Reveals

Square Enix has announced something big this month for its fans. When it took onstage at this month’s E3 event, it actually dropped an explosive news for all gamers. This as the company announced the return of Just Cause 4.

Just Cause 4 Has A New Tornado-filled Trailer

 

Square Enix said that Just Cause 4, the company’s explosive open-world action game is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC. This means to say that a gamer like you could play and feel the character of Rico Rodriguez.

 

Check the game’s trailer below:

 

Unknown to many, Rodriguez is the action-hero in the 80’s which is an inspiring figure in the Just Cause games. The fictional hero character is up against The Black Hand which has been described as a powerful private army.

 

Square Enix’s Just Cause 4 is set in the fictional South American country called Solis. Avalanche Studios is the company that developed Just Cause 4, the same company that created the previous Just Cause game series.

 

Aside from the gigantic explosions and huge infrastructure, one thing that should excite the player is the game’s option for traversal. This means that playing the game allows you to use the much-heralded wingsuit.

 

Of course, this is on top of the game’s parachute, helicopters, fighter jets, tanks, boats, and cars —all available from the previous Just Cause game instalments. What you will also be seeing in the Just Cause 4 is the updated weather effects, among others.
