Beast is still a side-scroller, it s still a beat- em-up, and it still follows the same story of a child-turned-demon out for revenge.Where it differs, most obviously, is in its incredible audio-visual improvements.The soundtrack also builds heavily on this barren planet, harking back to the original s influential music to combine with its almost frightening mix of gruesome auditory violence.Sure, you beat your way through legions of demons, button-mashing and brawling until your thumbs are sore, but there s been no innovation to improve its obviously dated concept.The better you fight, the more mana you earn, which can unlock such absolute essentials as translating alien languages.While stoking our sentimental fires can sometimes yield amazing results, it can also lead to a place where personal crusades end up satisfying no one more than the neurotic fan behind them.
British electronic artist Gold Panda a.k.a.In 2014, Derwin and photographer Laura Lewis embarked on a pair of pilgrimages to Japan with the thought of capturing a joint audio/visual travelogue to be released in book form, but those trips also fueled the creation of his new album Good Luck and Do Your Best, out today in various formats from City Slang.The album got its name from a loose translation of the Japanese phrase ganbatte, kudasai, which is what a taxi driver said to Derwin and Lewis after he dropped them off in Hiroshima.There s about seven hours worth of stuff, and I eventually want to do something with it all.I ve got a friend who pretty much has no belongings whatsoever except a laptop and clothes, and it feels really liberating.That classic 1969 Captain Beefheart album is the one everyone said I d love, but I didn t get it at first.
Instead of having a separate computer, calendar, telephone, camera, and flashlight, you probably use your smart phone for everything.The same is true in music production now that we live in a time when an an entire album can be and has been recorded on a Macbook at an Apple Store.No one knows that better than electronica producer Mark Pritchard.Pritchard used an intriguing mix of eclectic older gear, as well as state-of-the-art technology to create his new album, Under the Sun.However, he s just as adept at making beats using the same basic technology available to virtually all of us: an iPad.Digital Trends sat down with Pritchard at the Red Bull Studios in New York City to talk about his new album and his immersive audio/visual installation at the Red Bull Music Academy Festival.
But the Majesty 155 superyacht is also smart.Thanks to a state-of-the-art audio-visual system from Archimedia, the owner of this 154-foot yacht definitely doesn t need a bigger boat.It s not just the size that s impressive; it s also an award winner.The CEDIA Awards celebrate excellence in home technology and integration across the United Kingdom, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, India, and Pakistan.While most of the awards focus on land-based projects, the best yacht installation award takes us out to the high seas to gawk at some high-tech boats.On-wall monitors running Savant Control were placed strategically around the Majesty 155, giving the owner access to audio and video distribution throughout the yacht.

Elephone burst in to the action camera scene last year and since then have released subsequent devices including one of the most affordable 360 camera s on the market, but is it any good?Elephone gained quite a bit of a reputation over the past few years.The company is known for headline grabbing specifications and prices, but are equally infamous for their delays, bugs and other issues.Despite their mistakes though, Elephone have gathered quite a fan base which gave them ample opportunity to expand their business to include other devices.To help support their phone range, Elephone have released accessories as far flung as an E-cigarette to action cameras, and it s action cameras that they are sticking too.Elephone EleCam 360 Review – What is it?Elephone already launched their Explorer and Explorer Pro, but the problem was that so many other brands also had very similar cameras.To make the Elecam sub-brand really standout Elephone really needed some special and that s where the EleCam 360 fits in.Not only is the EleCam 360 come at a time when big names are venturing in to the 360 space, but it also comes to the market as the most affordable at the time of writing method of getting in to sphere photography and video.With 360 cameras still being rather new on the market we have seen plenty of variation in design and implementation, and in this case we have an Elephone device that looks like nothing else on the market.The body is a simple black plastic structure with a basic, but easy to read LCD display in the top, while the front and rear of the camera has a camera each behind a bulbous glass lens.These dual camera and super wide-angle lenses both offering 220 degree views are what makes 360 video and photos possible with the new EleCam.Images are taken simultaneously from the lens and then stitched together by the SPCA6350M processor to give live sphere views that can be viewed either via the Elephone EleCam 360 app and hand gestures, or using a set of VR googles.Images and video are recorded on to SD cards up to 32GB and can then be transferred to your PC, of if you like you can connect to the camera via WIFI and move media that way instead.EleCam 360 Review – HardwareI ve already mentioned the dual 220 degree lenses, well behind them are a couple of Omnivision OV4689 images sensors.
Skully, the hardware startup behind the augmented reality motorcycle helmet that raised $2.4 million on Indiegogo, has shut down operations, according to TechCrunch.The move follows the ousting of CEO Marcus Weller along with his brother and fellow co-founder Mitch earlier this month.With its promise of a heads-up display, 180-degree blind-spot camera, GPS, and other audio/visual features, the Skully AR-1 raised more than $14 million from investors and crowdfunding backers.But the shutdown means the 3000 people who pre-ordered a helmet are now unlikely ever to get one, and sources says the chances of them receiving a refund are slim.The closure is said to have come about following a botched deal with Chinese firm LeSports, which was apparently looking to acquire Skully as the startup was rapidly running out of cash.A manufacturing issue that slowed down shipment of the AR-1 also contributed to the company's problems.

Communications regulator Ofcom has dropped its probe into how the Premier League sells live UK audio-visual media rights for football matches.The investigation, carried out under the Competition Act 1998, considered whether the selling arrangements of the Premier League restricted or distorted competition.In closing its investigation, Ofcom said it has taken into account the Premier League s recent decision to increase the number of matches available for live broadcast in the UK by at least 22, to a minimum of 190 per season, from the start of the 2019/20 season.Consumer research carried out by the regulator revealed no strong desire to see more broadcasts.Just one fifth of fans said they wanted to see more matches televised live, while a similar proportion said they were happy with the overall number of matches broadcast live – but wanted to see different matches shown."Due to the range of views expressed in the consumer research, significant further work – including additional research among football fans – would be required to conclude this investigation," said Ofcom in a statement.

Recordings, whether audio, visual, or both, are there to help remind us of what came before, but preserving those that exist only in analog form for future generations to enjoy, or learn from, can be an incredible technical challenge.The Montreux Jazz Festival has 50 years of unique performances in its archives — a treasure chest of musical history that could be considered priceless.Back in 2008, a team of engineers, archivists, and researchers from Montreux Sounds, the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, and Swiss watchmaker Audemars Piguet decided to digitally preserve the recordings, restore them, and give people a chance to relive those amazing musical experiences in an immersive way.Audemars Piguet vice chairman of the board Olivier Audemars described the late founder of the Jazz Festival Claude Nobs as a, faithful friend, adding the project and its necessary attention to detail was originally inspired by him.Alain Dufaux, Operations and Development Director at the EPFL Metamedia Centre, told Digital Trends, Everything was digitized in uncompressed formats to preserve the quality.Dufaux continued, The challenge is to tune playback optimally and select the proper analog-to-digital converter parameters.
