Ahh, Red Dead Redemption from Rockstar Games. Doesn’t even do it justice to say it’s Grand Theft Auto set in the wild west. A worthwhile investment. If you need to be convinced further or are already playing, check out this trailer for a short film making its debut Saturday night (May 29) at midnight ET/PT on FOX. Directed by John Hillcoat (Yes – the same guy who did The Road and The Proposition), entirely using the game’s graphic rendering engine as his camera.
As usual, Rockstar has a funny glitch or two in their games… check out the incredible donkey lady after the jump.
Ahh. The Energizer Night Strike Swivel Flashlight. Where have you been my whole life? If you’re constantly digging behind equipment like I am, you know how important a swivel-head light is, or one that you can aim and stand up in a corner. It’s got high, medium and low settings on not only white light, but red, green and blue light for preventing nightblindness. What else? It’s got a UV light mode to show you the things your eyes can’t normally see (gross stains, most likely), it’s powered by the usual two AA batteries – but can function with just one. More specs after the jump.
You know the drill: Active 3G data use, video and audio playback just kill your mobile device’s battery. The KIWI U-Powered: Solar & USB Portable Charger just might be the extra item I carry in my bag this summer. Kick back and relax to the superb video above.
The Pentax 645D is coming soon – May in Japan, other countries soon after. Medium format, digital, 100-1600 iso, ideal for the field or studio. It’s got a giant 43mm x 33mm sensor that grabs images at 40 megapixels. Dual SD slots- you can throw RAW images on one card and JPGs on the other. Hefty monster.
The Motion X GPS app for iPad will be available shortly, showing off a larger, more usable footprint of data from the iPhone version. Gives me some interesting excuses for in-vehicle mounting. The existing version is pretty sweet- I’ve used it to log map routes by bike and car, and the data export can be used to geotag photos. It’s not a turn-by-turn navigation solution, but is a pretty robust tracking app for the data hound in me.
