Capcom Unveils a Real Bionic Arm from Japan

100°
280w ago - Capcom USA has unveiled their delivery of a real Bionic Arm from Japan. Check it out below, modeled by Capcom's resident babe Marisol.

To quote: Today, we got the Bionic Arm. It came in a crate with some mysterious Japanese writing (probably a warning of the pure awesome inside), and a dead give-a-way in english as it says "Bionic Arm" in big letters.

Marisol was kind enough to strap on this prop for some pics to show off how cool this thing is. It would have been cooler if I could have found the button for the lights. But there's no obvious switch on there that says "lights."

Instead I spent a good five minutes pressing things that looked like they could be buttons while it was sitting on my desk(I was guarding it from the droolers). As I was looking, I realized just how much detail went into this piece of equipment.

Every rivet, bolt, screw, the hosing... It's all hand painted down to the most minute detail. The arm is an exact match to the arm you'll be using when you pick up Bionic Commando.
 

Famitsu Unveils New Final Fantasy XIII Screenshots for PS3

100°
286w ago - Famitsu has made available some new of Final Fantasy XIII screenshots which it featured in this weeks Famitsu issue.

Below is a very rough Google translation, and check out all of the pics linked above!

Crystal will be guided by a society based on the colony, "Cocoon" and the spread of primitive nature "pulse". Two of the world's stage and RPG's FFXIII. Lightning (no translate) RASHIKI blond heroine of the men, but this time the name "Snow" turned out to be.

In the FF series, VII, after the hero of many of the weather has been named. Therefore, his position is in this film is important to be inferred.

The album will be an important keyword, "Farsi" and "RUSHI". Farsi is a special existence beyond knowledge, and Cocoon is built. RUSHI chosen by the Farsi and was given the mission of the neck. The mission, from Farsi to the video, such as RUSHI "vision" will be conveyed, because it's not clear what, (no translate) by means of a controversial interpretation.

Snow was chosen as the RUSHI one of Farsi. (no translate) bulk of rugged, and things always think positive. Without dashing back in, take care of one side of good. However, without considering the consequences that a lot of action, the Lightning is probably a little clause (no translate)...
 

Sony Unveils Companies that will Initially use PlayStation Home

288w ago - With PlayStation Home on the way soon (at least we hope it is, but we would not bet money on it), Sony has shown an image at TGS 2008 that shows what companies they are working with to include features in Home.

Sony did not reveal what each companies would be doing what, so some could just be sticking their logo on in-game items, while others may going all out and creating rooms to go hand in hand with upcoming game.

Regardless, the list of companies looks interesting, with many of the big names in the industry looking to offer something to the service.

However, we have to say the lack of a SquareEnix logo is very surprising.

Hitachi Unveils Digital Signatures on Stand-Alone Memory Chips

50°
290w ago - Hitachi has announced anti-counterfeiting functionalities on memory chips without microprocessor such as memory cards, tickets or cartridges.

The Japanese company announced today the development of a mechanism for attesting the authenticity of memory chips using highly secure digital signatures.

Since the mechanism requires neither a CPU nor a computational unit, high security can be attained at a very low cost. As a result, counterfeited or altered memory devices can be recognized as such, with a wide range of applications, including memory cards for digital cameras or handheld video game consoles, cartridges for consumer products, admission tickets or gift coupons.

In order to establish that digital contents are authentic and have not been tampered with, digital signatures usually involve cost-intensive computations and require an important processing power. For instance, in some schemes, large integers with hundreds of digits are multiplied hundreds of times using a powerful CPU.

As a consequence, conventional memory chips without CPU cannot handle digital signatures and are confined to the use of basic identification techniques based for example on serial numbers. Moreover, adding a CPU with sufficient processing power...
