The beta game I got the chance to play in Melbourne is now up and running in Tokyo, Japan. The most interesting thing in the article for me is +Scott Vandonkelaar mentioning the possibility of cross continent multiplayer.
Would absolutely love to be able to play in VR with friends from back home in the UK!
Be afraid. Be very afraid. Zombies have infiltrated Sega’s Joypolis theme park in Tokyo's Odaiba district, and it’s your job to crossover into their virtual world and stop the apocalypse of the undead. On the surface, all looks peaceful. But once inside the VR world of Zombie Survival at Sega's Joypolis [...]

Was lucky enough to get a beta test of a new game mode in testing at this place last night. First experience of VR that wasn't sitting in a chair wearing a VR headset to simply look around.

It was outstanding, would absolutely recommend giving it a go even if you're only slightly interested in the whole VR experience.

Multiplayer, free roam virtual reality. Only in Melbourne. The future of entertainment is here.

Finally!
 
YouTube Red has just launched today in Australia: After launching in the US last October, it appears that Google has finally brought YouTube Red, their ad-free YouTube service to Australia. The service hasn’t been officially announced at the time of writing, but all indications are that it is live so it’s just a matter of waiting until Google Australia actually announces that it’s … The post YouTube Red has just launched today in Australia appeared first on Ausdroid. #AppsandGames #Exclusive #ausdroid

I tend to get quite attached to my cars, they look after me while taking me here, there and everywhere. Even the first two cars I owned which were a bit old and cost a bit to keep running have a place in my heart.

This time it's no exception, selling the car I've owned for all 6 years I've lived in Australia I feel pangs of guilt for passing it onto the next stage of it's life. I hope it gets looked after as I've looked after it and the next owner appreciates it as much as I have.

Despite feeling a little sad about seeing it go (when that time comes) I can't help but be excited about the vehicle that's replacing it. The all new experiences it will bring me and the journeys I will go on with it.

Somebody cutting through already sliced-up bread is the best part of this Android Wear 'Mode' watch strap announcement.

This'll be in one of those crap news sites as a "leaked render of new iPhone" any moment.

I don't think anybody expects this level of innovation from an iPhone ;)

Interesting article from the BBC here: http://www.bbc.com/autos/story/20160428-how-ai-will-solve-traffic-part-one

The issue of the phantom traffic jam is something I find particularly infuriating and plagues me daily on my drive home.

I've tried the techniques mentioned in the article in the past and always caved and closed up due to the number of cars jumping in front of me. This evening however I was extra patient and specifically with this article in mind I left quite large gaps at times and went slowly but carried momentum as others stopped and started. This meant I was able to avoid stopping and starting for my entire freeway journey. How this effected those behind me was hard to gauge though I couldn't see any detrimental effect to my efforts.

The benefit for myself, in particular as someone who drives a manual car (at least for the moment), in not having to stop and start was great. There's better fuel economy of course but mainly it was not having to mess about with the clutch and constantly go from first to second and back and forth many times as I journeyed home.

Anyway, the article is very interesting and it has a neat game located here: https://madewithmonsterlove.itch.io/error-prone which demonstrates the effect of stopping and starting very effectively.

My final comment on this is that while I love driving, this sort of thing is the reason I would love to see self driving cars become a thing. I still want to have some fun myself now and again but even if it was simply freeway driving that was taken away from us mere mortals I feel we would see a massive difference in traffic problems. I don't need to be in complete control of my commute but I also don't want to go back to dealing with the local public transport which is slower and far less pleasant.
Intelligent cars will be able to head off congestion problems before they happen.

Great food, great staff. BYO Anything you like, even softdrinks. There's a liquor shop close by if you need to grab something just before you get in or even once you've ordered!

Great Burgers and really friendly staff. Mystery sauce bottles were a little annoying but if I'm picking on the sauce bottles you get the idea the food is petty great!

Great coffee, not a big space but there's a bit of outdoor seating too. Some lovely food on offer too.
