The Bluetooth-enabled GoCube will turn you into a Rubik’s Cube wizard

Everyone has an irritatingly brainy relative who can solve a Rubik’s Cube puzzle in a matter of seconds, while the rest of us just stare at the things on the table, baffled, taunted by this boxy jumble of colour. In the past you might have thrown in the towel, but with GoCube (from $69) – currently smashing its funding target on Kickstarter – you get a bit of extra help. It’s Bluetooth-enabled you see, meaning it connects to an app that can receive information from the device’s smart sensors and display your progress in real-time on screen. As well as studying step-by-step technique tips, you can compete against your friends and play games. GoCube is also designed to be faster and less prone to sticking when you’re turning the columns than a normal Rubik’s Cube, so you’ll feel even more smug when you master it.

Premier trailer role-playing action Vampyr from the creators of Life is Strange and Remember Me

Studio Dontnod Entertainment published the premiere trailer of the role-playing action game Vampyr, which takes place in London in 1918, immediately after the First World War.

Dr. Jonathan Reed, after returning to London from the front, becomes a victim of a vampire. He does not kill him, but turns into himself like that. Just one bite – and the life of a doctor turns upside down. Before him opens a whole new world of intrigue and the power of supernatural beings. Blood flows like a river, and at the same time in the streets of London, the epidemic of Spanish flu is raging.

This jolly little robot gets goosebumps

Cornell  researchers have made a little robot that can express its emotions through touch, sending out little spikes when it’s scared or even getting goosebumps to express delight or excitement. The prototype, a cute smiling creature with rubber skin, is designed to test touch as an I/O system for robotic projects.
