Amazon's voice-activated Echo isn't the first piece of hardware you might think of when it comes to gaming, but Jagex is looking to change how you see - or rather, hear - the device.The Cambridge-based developer is best known for its MMO RuneScape, and it's that fantasy world the team is turning to for its first Echo game.WIRED speaks with Mark Ogilvie, Jagex's design director, on how the project came about, bringing non-gamers into the world of RuneScape, and how Echo could evolve into a hub for traditional tabletop role-playing games.As a storyteller and a big fan of tabletop role-playing games, and the original text-based adventure games on the BBC Micro, it seemed like the kind of platform you could potentially use as some kind of role-playing device.One Piercing Note was an existing quest in the RuneScape MMO.The quest is really the only thing that goes on in this one particular place so in many ways it s kind of ring-fenced from the rest of the game and has its own story going on.

A closed design, some funky architecture to the cups, and a head-hugging headband make them seem ready for the street.Think carefully about buying the Final Sonorous III for portable use, however.They're huge, and made me feel more self-conscious than when sporting the bright pink/purple sets I occasionally review.Cup padding is thick and topped with ultra-soft faux leather, and while these headphones are a little too heavy for you to be entirely unaware of them on your head, I ve worn them for more than four hours with no discomfort.The Sonorous IIIs would be ideal in a busy office, with their closed design blocking out a good amount of noise and letting out very little sound.In comparison to the Final Audio headphones, the Sonorous IIIs are far more ordinary-looking – aside for the large size, that is.

Microsoft President Brad Smith sent an email to all company employees Saturday afternoon in response to President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration, saying that there were 76 employees affected.The email was posted to LinkedIn by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.The full text of the email is below.On Friday, Donald Trump signed an executive order for "new vetting measures" that brought in sweeping changes to the US' refugee program and blocked citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the country for at least 90 days — even people who already have visas and legal permits to live in the United States.The countries affected are Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen."We believe that immigration laws can and should protect the public without sacrificing people s freedom of expression or religion.And we believe in the importance of protecting legitimate and law-abiding refugees whose very lives may be at stake in immigration proceedings," Smith wrote to employees."As an immigrant and as a CEO, I ve both experienced and seen the positive impact that immigration has on our company, for the country, and for the world.We will continue to advocate on this important topic," Nadella wrote in preface to the e-mail.

Sadly, it's not unusual to see a new makeshift memorial spring up in London: cellotaphs, as they're known, formed of piles of flowers and rain-soaked notes on the site of an accident or crime.But people who've been stopping to see what happened at the new one on Tooley Street by London Bridge station might be surprised to find that it's not for a person, but a train company - specifically, crisis-hit Southern Rail.The memorial's been there for a couple of days now, but Londoner MinnieMoomin posted it to Reddit with an explanation - and surprised some locals who assumed it was something much sadder.While the decline of our railways into national chaos is certainly depressing, it's not quite on par with the events that usually lead to street tributes.Notes at the site include "Here lies my patience, sanity and home life, killed by Southern Rail" and "In loving memory of the 07.55 from Hackbridge to London Bridge, missing, presumed dead."While it's certainly an eye-catching and attention-grabbing way of raising an important issue, it seems more than a little tasteless to go about it this way, especially as there are frequent fatalities on London's train lines.

Earlier this month, a report jointly compiled by the NSA, CIA and FBI concluded that Russia's intelligence services had conducted hacking attacks against organisations involved with the 2016 US presidential election, with the most high profile target being the Democratic National Committee DNC .Assessing the impact of the leaks that followed on the election itself is hard, and Russia has denied any involvement with any of these activities.But the impact of the hacking attacks on the US election process -- whoever was responsible -- will range far and wide this year, according to experts.TheShadowBrokers is going dark, making exit.Continuing is being much risk and bullshit, not many bitcoins.On the same day Guccifer 2.0 -- a character that US intelligence agencies think was created by Russian military intelligence to serve as a conduit for the data stolen from the Democratic National Committee and others in the run up to the US presidential election, also broke 'his' silence.

Ever 3D-printed an object and then changed your mind about the design?Now, however, scientists at MIT have created a 3D printing method that allows them to alter a printed object.Stereolithography is a common 3D printing technique that works by shining light onto a liquid solution of monomers - the building blocks of plastic and other materials - to form layer upon layer of solid polymers in a specific design or pattern, until the final shape is complete.The new MIT method, however, allows them to add polymers that alter the material's chemical composition and mechanical properties.Jeremiah Johnson, the Firmenich career development associate professor of Chemistry at MIT, said: The idea is that you could print a material and subsequently take that material and, using light, morph the material into something else, or grow the material further.In 2013, Johnson and his colleagues demonstrated that they could use UV light to stimulate the polymers and add new features to 3D-printed materials.

One of the world's biggest aerospace companies plans to test a prototype of a flying car by the end of this year, a move that could be a big step towards easing congestion on urban roads.Airbus's chief executive, Tom Enders, told a technology conference in Germany that it planned to test a small prototype vehicle by the end of the year.Last year Airbus formed a division called Urban Air Mobility to investigate ideas such as a vehicle to transport individuals or a helicopter-style vehicle that can carry multiple riders.The aim would be for people to book the vehicle using an app, similar to car-sharing schemes.Airbus has been working on "vertical take-off and landing" VTOL technology that would allow vehicles to pick up passengers in busy urban areas, and has said it expects to be putting them into production by 2021.Although flying cars have been a staple of science fiction for decades, investment in the concept is finally emerging.
