Android O new features

We're likely still a few months out from the release of Android 8.0, but we got a glimpse at some of its most interesting new features and additions at Google I/O earlier this month. One of the features that Google showed off during the event was called Notification Dots, which are small dots that appear on apps when you have a notification. You won't be able to try notification dots until Android O rolls out later this year, but you can add an unofficial version of the feature to your phone right now.

Researchers force AI to teach itself how to beat ‘Super Mario Bros’

ai training

Most of the times you hear about AI it's in context related to virtual assistants, or maybe even the virtual driver piloting a self-driving car, but training an artificial mind to fetch the weather report or do a lap around the block is a bit different than teaching it to teach itself. A team of researchers from the University of California, Berkeley, have been working on just that, and in a newly published paper the group reveals the tool they used to keep their self-taught AI motivated: Super Mario Bros.

How to play the ‘ARMS’ Global Testpunch on Nintendo Switch this weekend

ARMS Global Testpunch times

While Super Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2 are sure to hog the spotlight on the Switch in the second half of 2017, there's another first-party game from Nintendo that has piqued our interest. ARMS -- a fighting game that utilizes motion controls -- will be the first big Switch game to launch after E3 2017 and will serve as the bridge to Splatoon 2, which doesn't come out for the Switch until late July.

If seeing the game in action during the latest Nintendo Direct wasn't convincing enough, Nintendo is holding a stress test for the game this weekend which any Switch owner can participate in.

I am absolutely addicted to this idiotic online claw game

toreba online crane game

I really don't need to explain to you the appeal of the classic "claw game," and even if I tried it would probably just sound silly. Navigating a flimsy toy crane over to some cheap trinket and then praying that the weak little arms actually make it move is an exercise in frustration, and paying a dollar or more for every attempt is downright stupid. That being said, there's something extremely addictive about the entire exercise, and now that I can play dozens of different claw game machines from the comfort of my a browser, iPhone, or Android device, someone might need to stage an intervention.
