AMD and Firaxis Games have teamed up to bring a DirectX 12 rendering path to Sid Meier's Civilization VI, one of the most hotly anticipated strategy games set for release in this year's holiday period.Two key DirectX 12 features will be supported in Civilization VI.The first is explicit multi-adapter, which goes beyond standard SLI or Crossfire setups and gives the game greater control over how it utilizes two or more GPUs.This sort of technology is particularly useful at high resolutions, and will even allow you to pair up graphics cards from both Nvidia and AMD in the one system.Civilization VI will also support asynchronous compute, which benefits Radeon GPUs significantly as they have full support for this technology unlike Nvidia .Asynchronous compute basically allows the game to parallelize different tasks, such as lighting or physics, and run them simultaneously on the GPU rather than sequentially.

Earlier this week, Facebook gave a small group of reporters a tour of its Prineville, OR data center.Each rack holds 32 phones, for a total of almost 2,000 devices, but, as Facebook s Antoine Reversat told us, the plan is to bring this number to 64 devices per rack.Each rack features its own Wi-Fi signal and is also an EMI enclosure to make sure that neighboring racks can t pick up the Wi-Fi signals from its neighbors.Every time an engineer makes changes to one of Facebook s main mobile apps, that new version of the app is automatically tested on these devices to ensure that there are no crashes or performance issues.The available devices run from basic Android Galaxy phones to the latest iPhones.As Reversat noted, these devices also run a number of different versions of their respective operating systems.

Google has updated its Hangouts app for Android with the ability to record and send videos to other users.The video is limited to one minute in duration, and you can either record the video directly from the app, or send a previously recorded video.The update is somewhat odd as this same feature has been available to iOS users since February 2014.Google usually introduces new features to Android versions of its apps first, and then brings them to iOS, but for some reason, Android users had to wait two-and-a-half years for video messaging.A small consolation: Phandroid notes that the iOS version of Hangouts can only upload 360p videos, while Hangouts on Android lets users upload full HD, 1080p videos.All this might not mean much in the grand order of things as Google is set to launch two messaging apps this summer: the assistant-powered Allo and the video-centered Duo.

A miniature fuel cell costing no more than £2 which can generate electricity from a single visit to the toilet has recharged a smartphone for the first time.Using pee power , scientists have been able to provide three hours of phone calls for every six hours of charge time – all from 600ml of urine.The microbial fuel cell MFC technology provides enormous potential to enable people to stay connected in areas that are off grid using urine.View photosMore University of the West of England in Bristol The world first has been developed at the University of the West of England in Bristol by Professor Ioannis Ieropoulos and his team.Prof Ieropoulos said: We are excited to announce several global firsts – this development was possible by employing a new design of microbial fuel cells that allowed scaling up without power density losses.

Searching for and using Emoji on a Mac is a bit frustrating, so over on GitHub, user warpling shares their set of substitutions that makes it easier to place emoji anywhere you need them.Ever since Mountain Lion, Mac s have had a built-in text expansion.Warpling simply tapped into that system and created a massive substitution list based on Slack s system.Type the name of emoji you want surrounded by colons and it ll automatically substitute the emoji in.So, you can type something like :burrito: or :toilet: and it automatically puts in the emoji.Even if you re not familiar with Slack, this is a heck of lot easier than using the Mac s usual search.

But is it the real deal?People all over have been trying to enjoy the new Pokémon Go app, which released this week to so much fanfare that it s experiencing massive server overload.The hype was so real that people were passing around APK files so that people outside the countries where it s available could side-load it on Android, something I saw in my own friend groups.Security firm Proofpoint is now cautioning those who couldn t wait for an official app store release, saying that one specific APK was modified to install a backdoor called DroidJack.The app is different form the official version, but is close enough to fool anyone who may have picked it up.The firm discovered the infected Android version of the app less than 72 hours after the game was released in New Zealand and Australia on July 4.

As often happens in new industries, designers have come to different conclusions about customer wishes, performance and likely demands from regulators.Those interested in building flying cars range from Google co-founder Larry Page, who is privately funding two flying-car companies, to state-owned Aviation Industry Corp. of China, or AVIC, which last year unveiled a concept at an expo in Tianjin.John Brown, project manager of Carplane, a Munich-based company, says he cherishes a picture from 1885 showing a person on a bicycle attached to a balloon.For example, cars are limited by regulations in terms of width, and need to fit inside garages; but planes require long wingspans.AeroMobil s 3.0 prototype is ready for flight with wings extendedRegulators in Europe have said they want to give engineers some leeway in terms of freedom to imagine different concepts.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a game that has captivated critics and gamers alike, but if you've been waiting for an inevitable Game of the Year edition before getting in on the action yourself, your time might be coming up.After being leaked in a listing by German ratings board USK, developer CD Projekt Red has come out and confirmed the game's existence for Xbox One, PS4, and PC, failing to give many details beyond the fact that it actually is coming.However, a Eurogamer source close to the project has said the game will be out on August 26, 2016, so assuming they're right, we'll have the game sooner rather than later.Obviously, we can expect the Game of the Year edition will feature The Witcher 3's two expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, though those aren't the only pieces of extra content CD Projekt Red has released for the game.Players have also been treated to bunch of free additions, ranging from new outfits and weapons to additional one-off quests.It's unclear whether or not those will be available in the Game of the Year version, but it seems safe to assume they will be.
