Video: Flex Your Lexicon in Page Chronica, Out Tuesday on PSN

50°
86w ago - Red Hare Studios Producer Wee Lit Koh has invited fans to flex their Lexicon in Page Chronica, which is out Tuesday on PSN with a video trailer below.

To quote: During the making of our game Page Chronica, a common question has been "Is this an edutainment game?" Whenever we hear that word, our bodies cringe and we adamantly deny the claim.

In the gaming industry, the term conjures memories of boring school educational games that would alienate the majority of our console gamers. So for a long period of time, we would refuse to admit that our game is such a thing.

However, we eventually lightened up to the notion. That is not to say that we have fully accepted the classification, but it is more of a matter of tweaking our perspectives. So to all the edutainment-haters out there, we're here to convince you to withhold judgment and give Page Chronica a try.

Page Chronica is not your average side-scrolling action-platformer. It is an action-oriented word-puzzle game that combines elements of action-platformers with the forming of words. Capture letters and form words of various lengths and complexity to gain the power to unleash a variety of Spells and Attacks. The stronger the words formed, the more powerful you will be.

Download: Flex Manager v1.0 / Flex Manager v1.0.1

Version 1.0.1 Changelog:

• waiting for option over the games selected

For those curious, it allows you to select from PS3 games on your HDD similar to how you would choose a Netflix movie, and covers should be 348x400 in size and placed in the following directory:

/dev_hdd0/games/OMAN46756/covers/

Finally, the titles need to match their respective PlayStation 3 game ID counterparts and currently PNG image names must be in CAPS to work.

Here are other revisions that led to Flex Manager:

Video: Samsung Flexible OLED at FPD International 2008

295w ago - Samsung showed off an impressive Flexible OLED mobile phone at this year's FPD International show.

The phone opens up to reveal a large OLED screen that folds in the middle (remnicent of a Nintendo DS when open).

Hopefully we'll see a portable gaming console with one of these screens someday soon!

Cheers!

300w ago - Sony has apparently developed an incredibly flexible 2.5" screen, which can do a whole lot of flexing and still be in perfect condition!

The video is below, and comes courtesy of RiftDisruptor via GameTrailers.

The caption simply reads: A small flexible screen from SONY.

Now bad indeed to demonstrate their constant advances in technology, eh?

Enjoy!



 

Silicon chips stretch into shape

50°
329w ago - Normally fragile and brittle silicon chips have been made to bend and fold, paving the way for a new generation of flexible electronic devices.

The stretchy circuits could be used to build advanced brain implants, health monitors or smart clothing.

The complex devices consist of concertina-like folds of ultra-thin silicon bonded to sheets of rubber.

Writing in the journal Science, the US researchers say the chip's performance is similar to conventional electronics.

"Silicon microelectronics has been a spectacularly successful technology that has touched virtually every part of our lives," said Professor John Rogers of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, one of the authors of the paper.

But, he said, the rigid and fragile nature of silicon made it very unattractive for many applications, such as biomedical implants.

"In many cases you'd like to integrate electronics conformably in a variety of ways in the human body - but the human body does not have the shape of a silicon wafer."

Professor Zhenqiang Ma of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, who also works on flexible silicon circuitry, said the new research was an "important step".

"Completely integrated, extremely bendable circuits have been talked about for...
