Pixel Press

Roundthird:

Pixel Press is an iOS app that lets you draw your own video game […]

Got to see it to believe it. For guys who can draw better than they can code Pixel Press is a dream. Make it come true: Launching May 7 on Kickstarter.

Don’t Drop Your HTC One

Anton Wahlman, The Street:

On the hardware side, I don’t like this HTC One at all. Its greatest sin is that it feels like it’s about to slip out of your hand any second, and what’s worse than that?

Metal is more slippery than plastic. Butterfingers: caveat emptor.

Microsoft IllumiRoom

Microsoft Research:

IllumiRoom uses a Kinect for Windows camera and a projector to blur the lines between on-screen content and the environment we live in allowing us to combine our virtual and physical worlds. For example, our system can change the appearance of the room, induce apparent motion, extend the field of view, and enable entirely new game experiences.

Neat idea.

HTC ‘M4’ One Mini

PhoneArena: Codenamed M4, which I’ll call One mini, sports a 4.3-inch display with a 1280×720 pixel format. Although I prefer smaller smartphones—pre-iPhone 5 display sizes being the optimum size in my opinion—a mere addition of 0.4 inches on the HTC One gets me to to full 1920×1080. The difference in display size on the One mini is just too small to justify stepping down from 1920×1080.
