3D hits PlayStation 3 next week!
On the 10th of June PlayStation’s first round of 3D updates will be available for download – but in Japan and Europe only (and courtesy of some blood-sucking Bravia campaign). This has the capacity to disappoint more than smellivision, but we wait with baited breath nonetheless.

French genius/artist, Nils Guadagnin, has built us lucky mortals a semi-functioning hovercraft. While you can’t flee a violent scene on this thing, it does hover and it has LASER BEAMS.
For the three people left with Nokias
Companies love to find fancy ways to charge your phones almost as much as they love USB gadgets and mooching off subcultures. This nifty bike-charger combines – you guessed it – riding and charging your Nokia. Two out of three ain’t bad. Via gizmodo.com.au.
New game releases
For those with consoles and cash to burn, Blur, UFC Undisputed and Clash of the Titans (all available on PS3/Xbox360) are all out now. Coming soon, the much talked about Super Mario Galaxy 2 on Wii (due on the 17th of June).
Robots on the moon!
Because the Japanese are ambitions, often beyond logic, they have recently revealed that their plans to settle a few self-repairing humanoid robots on the moon is just the first step in their project dubbed, ‘Luna Lunacy’ (ok – it isn’t actually called that. Yet.) Their goal is to have these little nuggets build a moon base that they themselves will inhabit. The mayhem is due for completion by 2020. Via poscicom.au.
