Road Warrior Now Available For Android – Post Apocalyptic Racing Mayhem

This image has no alt text

A new racing game called Road Warrior is causing a ruckus in the Android Market. Developed by MobJoy and published by “Top Free Apps and Games,” Road Warrior is just as much about racing, as it is about mayhem. The premise is simple. Race. Shoot. And make money.

Like Mario Kart but in a dirty, post-apocalyptic setting, players outfit various hoop-rides — everything from sedans to trucks — with weapons upgrades they can use to eliminate the competition. But that’s not all. Using physics based gameplay, players can perform stunts while soaring through the air for added bonus points and even nitrous used to give you an edge over the competition.

Features include:

  • Execute perfect flips to gain coins and nitro boosts.
  • Multiple car options from sedans to massive trucks!
  • Beat bosses and get their extremely tuned racing & killing machines
  • Explore and discover multiple tracks. There are many paths within a single track. There’s always a best strategy for each car!
  • Upgrade your car with guns and other add-ons using our car builder.
  • Precise controls and amazing physics.
  • Realistic and impressive HD graphics!

Road Warrior has proven itself extremely successful on iOS gaining over 2 million users and counting. If you hurry, Road Warrior can be downloaded for absolutely free in the Android Market but only for a limited time.

Verizon Getting Ready For Nationwide Rollout Of VoLTE Services In Early 2013

This image has no alt text

If you thought Verizon Wireless was going to take it easy after blanketing the nation in super high-speed 4G LTE, you’d be wrong. According to inside sources, the #1 wireless provider in the US is currently getting ready to introduce Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) nationwide to customers early next year. Catharine Trebnick, VP at Northland Capital Markets, revealed “VZW has two cities now trialing [VoLTE] and plans for national rollout in early 2013."

This timeline is actually later than previously projected back during MWC of last year where Verizon said they’d hope to launch VoLTE services in 2012 — although it’s still possible the new service could trickle out to limited markets this year, with a broader nationwide rollout early next.

Haier presents 55-inch “completely wireless” 3D TV

Chinese brand Haier recently presented a large 55-inch 3DTV that’s truly wireless. It uses the Wireless Home Digital Interface (WHDI) technology to stream content and magnetic resonance to power the TV. A prototype of the Haier Completely Wireless TV was on display at CES 2012, but the company doesn’t have plans for commercial release just yet.

We’ve seen wireless TVs using WHDI before, but this new prototype from Haier may be the largest, boasting a 55-inch LCD panel. Both video signals, including 3D video data, and electricity are transmitted wirelessly to the TV.

A power-receiving coil sits near the bottom of the TV while a power-transmitting device is stored in the stand below the TV. The distance between the bottom of the TV and the power-transmitting device is said to be about 8 inches.

OZAKI O!photo Lens Case for iPhone 4S hands-on

It’s not the easiest thing in the world to differentiate yourself from the ultra-large mass of companies trying to get a piece of the iPhone case cake, so when we find a group that appears to be up to the job, we take that opportunity – and that opportunity has presented itself in the form of OZAKI, a group whose upcoming O!photo lens case for the iPhone 4S has our eyeballs lit right up. This case is made of hard plastic, has a screw hole at the top to place your own flash or lamp, and has a big bumper on the right so you can more naturally hold the whole rig. Below the bumper there’s another screw hole for a tripod, and there’s a lens hole in front of your iPhone’s camera lens so you can add a variety of extensions.

This setup comes as a kit and includes a fisheye lens, a 12 telephoto lens, and more, and will hopefully by the time it comes out have a converter lens to accept any manner of odd lenses you can think of. This case is unique in that it’ll not only protect your device to a degree, it’ll allow you to use your iPhone camera, for many people their only camera, in some higher than intended ways. Get that greater quality photo with lenses galore!

This setup is not yet priced, but as our host Miss Chou lets us know, we’ve not got a long wait before it’s going to be released worldwide. You can currently also purchase several other accessories in the O!photo line from a variety of vendors around the world, each of them mapped out at Ozakiverse.com. We look forward to the expansion of this lovely brand!

Numark IDJ PRO DJ Controller for iPad revealed

There’s been no lack of musical instruments being announced this week at the 2012 edition of NAMM pops up on the circuit, Numark bringing one fantastically amazing looking DJ station to the scene complete with iPad integration. This device was showed off at the Media Preview Day for NAMM and features a gigantic slot right in the center where your iPad or iPad 2 fits in nicely, controlling the whole show. You’re meant to use this station with the Algoriddim djay app which we’ve also, lucky you, taken a hands-on look at last year. This massive station is made to take that experience to a whole new level.

The Numark IDJ station has nudge/scratch jogwheels, buttons for looping, pitch controls, and the whole shebang besides. You’ve got volume knobs all around, buttons for the programming, and full integration with the already diverse djay app. This unit is made for consumers mainly, but certainly has nothing large holding it back from being used in a professional party environment.

This unit is made of both a brushed alminum and semitransparent plastic so lighted controls can brighten up your world on the fly. Capacitive touch-activated platters work with Hot Cues and retro-styled aluminum bits across the board for a powerful experience for everyone from beginners to veteran musicians. This device has a dedicated RCA 1/4 input, is Airplay compatible, and has a lovely dedicated music-library scroll knob of which it’s quite proud of. This device does not yet have a release date or a price, but we can expect it inside 2012 for sure!

Check out this fabulous hands-on video with Numark’s product manager Chris Roman courtesy of the folks over at DigitalDJTips – note that although the unit isn’t fully working as of yet, it’s pretty much a final look at the hardware.
