star warsWe are 8 months away from the release of Star Wars Episode VII and the excitement and fear is building. Excitement because well, it’s Star Wars and then of course the fear of what exactly Disney is going to do with the franchise. Luckily the director, J.J. Abrams is seen as the most fitting person to bring Star Wars into the modern age.

Here is another Star Wars appetizer. A new trailer just premiered at the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, and it gives us our first look at a few of the original cast members: Han Solo, Chewbaca, and what appears to be a hooded Luke Skywalker… (more…)

Apple Spaceship Campus

When you’re the biggest company in the world and the money just keeps rolling in, you most certainly deserve massive, grand-scale, completely-over-the-top headquarters.

Apple’s so-called ‘Spaceship Campus’ has been under construction for over a year now, and by the looks of things, the mega tech company is definitely not playing around with construction and looks set to meet their deadline.

The plans for Apple’s huge new campus was only approved a mere 18 months ago, but by the looks of things you would think that the grounds have been under construction for much longer. The company has said that they hope to officially open the doors to Apple’s new home in 2016. (more…)

Google Documentary

Nowadays, every major company seems to be involved with space and space exploration in some way or another. The out-of-the-universe field that was once only reserved for the likes of NASA, has now captured the imagination of (mostly tech) companies worldwide.

There is Elon Musk’s SpaceX programme, Richard Branson and Virgin Galactic and of course, the mighty Google.

As you may of heard, Google has recently launched the Google Lunar XPrize – a sort of post Cold War space race competition that challenges different teams from around the world to land a spacecraft on the moon.

18 private teams from all four corners of the Earth will go head-to-head in a bid to be the first to land a spacecraft on the moon. However, the objective is not to simply land the spacecraft on the moon, but to also let it roam for 500 meters as well as being able to send data and images back to Earth.

The winning team will then receive a grand prize of a whopping $20 million. (more…)

appLOUD – an app that will help musicians make money

appLOUD

As a musician, solo artist or band, you  essentially only have two ways of making money; album or single sales and of course, through ticket sales from live performances. Unless you’re a mega popstar or legendary rock band, these two ways of making money is your only bread and butter.

Indie or underground artists and bands that have not signed with a big label rely solely on gig money to survive. Sure, they can perhaps make money on album sales or downloads, but more often than not they choose to release these albums or singles for free in an effort to attract more people to their shows. Thus, you can imagine that these artists are constantly looking for other ways to showcase their music – and make money in the process.

And there might just be some light at the end of the tunnel thanks to a clever new startup with a clever new app.  (more…)

What better way to showcase the beautiful, desolate Liwa desert in Abu Dhabi than by capturing it on the back of a camel.

Google has done just that, and has brought us stunning images form the most beautiful desert in United Arab Emirates in the most authentic way possible – on the back of a Arabian camel.

To bring us the most detailed Street View of the Liwa Desert, the team at Google strapped the Google Street View Trekker to the back of the camel while it walked across the desert, accompanied by its handler.

The Trekker is image capturing contraption, that is specially designed to capture images of places around the world that can not be accessed by Google’s Street View cars, trolleys or snowmobiles – you’ll be surprised at how many different vehicles Google has to capture street view images!
