We take a walk-around of the new Microsoft Xbox One console, eyes-on at E3 2013

By: Trace Hagan | More News: Gaming Consoles | Posted: Jun 12, 2013 4:05 pm

Microsoft has the Xbox One front and center at their booth at this year's E3. We took a quick walk-around on video so you can see it from all angles. Front-panel and back-panel are both covered in the video, so you can see all of the inputs and the layout. The device does look decent, but we still have reservations about some of the concerns that Microsoft has yet to address.

Forza 5 video from E3 2013, real life vs. in-game, can you tell a difference?

By: Trace Hagan | More News: Gaming | Posted: Jun 12, 2013 3:56 pm

On the screen behind the vehicle, they have the in-game version of the P1. As you'll see in the video, telling the difference between the two is nearly impossible. Take a look for yourself:

 

 

The good news is that Forza 5 will give many the chance to experience the McLaren P1. While not in person, it looks good enough that you'll feel like you've seen one in person. We don't want to know how much Microsoft had to pay to get the P1 in person...

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Technology in Vehicles | Posted: Jun 12, 2013 4:47 am

Gorilla Glass is everywhere right now, it's what protects some of the best mobile device displays, but it looks like the company could be moving into the automotive industry as soon as next year. Considering over 1.5 billion devices feature the display-protecting technology, it's a smart move.

Why would auto makers want Gorilla Glass technology in their cars? It would make them lighter, which would result in increased fuel economy and better performance - win, win, right? According to Corning's senior vice president, Jeffrey Evenson, who expects at least one high-end manufacturer to bake their Gorilla Glass technology into their cars to replace their windows by next year. Not only will it make the car lighter, but it would also act as a sound deadening material which will reduce road and wind noise.
