In episode 22 this week we have a  special new console that can create its own games along with the ability to intelligently create fresh new levels for existing games on the system. Along with that we have a super slim printing pen that is incredibly small yet has the power to create some wonderful art.

OtonX

Console revolutions occasionally happen once or twice in 20 years, yet we’ve already have the revolution of the internet connected console. Now we could be on the verge of a new revolution with a console created games market.

Yes that does mean the OtonX can create its own games and levels with its intelligent algorithms.

Not entirely sure this will be the best version of this idea but it could be the start. For those of us who have a little bit of spare cash and who are willing to take a chance, you can currently help crowd fund the project and help it improve the features it will have in the end.

Check out the video below for a brief demonstration on the console and idea or you can check out the campaign page.

Lix 3D Pen

The 3Doodler has done well and I suppose it was only time until someone else took the idea and made it even smaller and better.

Well, here comes the Lix 3D printing pen. At nothing bigger than an average Biro, it could easily be mistaken for a normal pen. It’s slim with a lovely black body, can be USB powered with a detachable cable with the plastic tubes enter the back, right next to the power cable slot.

It looks as if it works almost exactly the same as the 3Doodler does but with its smaller size and better power cable, it is a slight improvement, looks wise anyway. We’ll have to see how it performs when it gets into the public’s hands.

Check out the video below for a look at the pen itself or pop over to the campaign page.

Past Projects Update:

Prisonscape – Well the campaign didn’t pass but the devs did learn a thing or two. They hope to come back sometime soon.

The Micro – The project did well and the printer got funded way above its goal. It seems a lot of people want a small mini printer. The printer should be coming out to backers sometime in February 2015.
