5G is about to change the world, just not yours

Around a decade has passed since the implementation of 4G, and now it seems that the world is ready to move on to the next generation of mobile connectivity – 5G. Such is the hunger for this new technology that countries are competing on being the first to introduce it within their cities. US-based telecommunications provider Verizon Wireless recently went into a war of words with South Korea’s SK Telecom, dismissing the latter’s claims of being the first in the world to launch a 5G mobile network. But beneath the glitter and glow of 5G, is there anything that we…

Joysteak Studios: The Road to Rhythm Redemption

“These two words come to mind: worth it”. That was the sentiment of Tan Kang Soon, Co-founder of Joysteak Studios, on the entire experience of developing a game as his company wraps up development on their first and upcoming rhythm platformer, Songbird Symphony.  Though, calling it a company might give a different impression on how big the team is. Along with Producer/Artist Kang Soon, the studio is only comprised of two other members; Lead Programmer Chue Sai Hou and Writer/Sound Engineer Muhammad Hanif. During production, all three divide their time working on the game between two locations: Kang Soon’s home…

Canon Rayo S1 Mini Projector Review: Projecting Small Margins

Portability is the ongoing trend right now, with consumers sometimes preferring a device’s portable qualities over it having the best specs; a common occurrence in the laptop market. So who’s to say that projectors can’t follow this trend? Canon certainly thinks so and has thus come up with the Canon Rayo S1 Mini Projector. Forget about those large, bulky projectors that hung over your head in class during the days when you were still in school, the Canon Rayo S1 Mini Projector dwarfs those monsters by a considerable margin.  The square-like aesthetic is retained, albeit in a much smaller package,…

HONOR 20 Lite Review: Mid-range Lite

It’s a little challenging to describe exactly what kind of device the HONOR 20 Lite is.  Taking one look at the price you might get the impression that the quality of the phone matches the cheap cost, but it performs beyond that. At the same time, I also can’t call it a mid-range phone as it doesn’t reach the standards set by others in the market such as Google’s Pixel 3a. At first glance, the HONOR 20 Lite looks alluring to the eye. The distinct neon pink and lavender gradient design featured on the back of the phone that I…

Netflix and Video Games – The Foray into the Pixel Space

Netflix has become an all-encompassing entity within the world in recent times; its presence permeating in millions of homes throughout the world. Production on regular original content has also been made possible all through the high volume of people using their services. Not content with ruling over the television world, Netflix wants to broaden their horizons and is seemingly also moving into the video game landscape. Like their venture into television, they have started small. One of the first projects was a mobile game based on the property of one of their most acclaimed series original series, Stranger Things. The…

New Future Makers Exhibition opens at Science Centre Singapore

The importance of engineers in Singapore is not something to be understated, with a vast majority of the population of Singaporean students choosing to specialise in an engineering-related course in the later stages of their education cycle. Science Centre Singapore wants not just to commemorate the work done by these people following this speciality, but also to encourage more people to join the field. Enter Future Makers, a new permanent exhibition in the scientific institution that just launched, celebrating the valuable contributions that engineers have given to the world that have shaped society for the better. Professor Lim Tit Meng,…

E3 2019 Round-up: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Cyberpunk 2077, and more

E3 2019 has officially ended, and like previous years, a ton of exciting reveals and new information were at the forefront of the event. Let’s take a look at the highlights from this year’s event. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order – The Beginning to the Road to Redemption? The handling of the Star Wars IP by Electronic Arts (EA) has not gone exceptionally well. There has been much bad press coming out of their Battlefront games and the cancellation of two prominent anticipated Star Wars games from Visceral Games and EA Motive. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is perhaps the…

E3 2019 Preview: Who will be the biggest hitters this year?

E3 – the spectacle that gets people’s palms sweaty, breaths held, and dreams come true. it is unequivocally the biggest event happening in the calendar for the gaming industry. This year’s E3, also known as the Electronic Entertainment Expo, is set to be different from that of last year’s. With Sony bowing out of the expo for the first time since its inception, along with the ever-growing chatter on the imminent next-generation of consoles, E3 2019 is going to be a year of transition.   This, of course, doesn’t mean that the hype train is slowing down. We expect major…

Lenovo Yoga S730 Review: Thin in hand, thin in features

The flexibility of Lenovo’s Yoga series has been a stand-out feature ever since its inception back in 2012. Since then, it has spawned different series under the same name, including the Yoga S series, which is their Ultrabook variant of the line-up. Their newest release is the Lenovo Yoga S730, possibly one of the thinnest laptops on the market right now. Measuring at a thickness of just 11.9mm and weight of 1.2kg, it is easy to mistake it as one of your magazines if you have both in your bag. The chassis of the laptop is made out of aluminium,…

Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL Review: A for Effort

Google’s unveiling of the new Pixel 3a and 3a XL was a peculiar sight to see. In a market where major smartphone manufacturers are touting the capabilities of their flagship line of phones, Google has decided to go against the grain and instead introduce a product aimed at attracting consumers who have a smaller budget. Right now you can purchase the Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL at SGD $659 and $779 respectively; that’s a really good price compared to the phones by its competitors which routinely hit beyond the $1,000 mark. Of course, with that price point, it’s fairly…
