>Canadians help it across Canada in less than a month
>Americans destroy it
 
Well that speaks a lot.
Hitchhiking robot hitchBOT, created by researchers in Canada, has been damaged beyond repair, ending its first American tour. The robot had previously traveled safely across Canada and parts of Europe.

I think that VR movies are going to be very cool, it will never replace traditional movies but it's an exciting new way for filmmakers to present their story and I can't wait to get the production rift to try some of these videos.

There's a horror game that's kind of done it. It maps your house using the camera and then inserts things into it and all.

It's a bit limited though in it's current form, but with something like HoloLens? Could be pretty epic.

4 reports of overheating out of 88,000 tablets and they're still recalling them all, that's quite the cost that Nvidia is eating for this.

I'm actually sorta happy about this, my tablet has received some undesirable cosmetic damage that annoys me whenever I see it so it will be nice to get a new one at no cost.
Over the past year, Nvidia’s Shield Tablet has become one of the top tablets for Android users. Today, the company recalled the devices, saying they’re prone to, uh, no easy way to say this, exploding into flames.

With the amount that I use NFC (multiple times a day) a phone not having it is a deal breaker for me.
However I may try to live without it for the other many features of the two.

I'd much rather not be able to play back 4K video than lose that battery life.

Story
Introduction
I enjoy Games, Movies, and TV ranging from SciFi, to Anime, and pretty much anything with a circuit board.

I have a strong technical skill and lifelong passion for networking and technology.

I currently work as a Medical systems technician, I utilized my technical skills to work on cutting-edge system design and installation, computer network administration, and small and medium network design. I also developed experience with fibre optics and helped to design web and software technical code. I travelled throughout Canada and the United States for on-site technical installations and software troubleshooting and developed strong communication skills while interacting with clients on a daily basis. I constantly worked in team-oriented environments and led cross-functional teams to achieve daily performance targets.

In addition I work at Canadian Tire Uxbridge as IT administrator managing all of the systems (over 40 PCs), network, and security cameras and DVRs - fixing any issues that arise. Over the course of the last three years, I successfully converted all of the IBM terminals to a PC based environment and completely overhauled the network backbone to increase organizational system productivity.

I love and work well with all forms computers and technology. I know a bunch on languages including C#, XAML, Actionscript3, javascript, HTML, CSS, etc. and technologies like Android, Windows server, Computer Hardware, and Computer Networks.

I also do graphic design, UI design, Photography, Videography, programming, 3D animation and Rendering.
