Theres something incredibly special and heartwarming about everything in Knights & Bikes, from the hand-drawn art style to the amazing music and the fact that all of it, every part, seems like something you would have done as a kid: cycling around the woods, keeping mysterious detritus as treasure and making up fantastical adventures in your head. Secret Legend The pitch here - and what youll be hearing from people talking excitedly about it - might be little more than Zelda, but with a fox, but Secret Legend is more than that. Combining the intricate combat of Dark Souls with the mystery-filled intrigue of early Legend of Zelda games, Secret Legend aims to straddle the fence between the nostalgia of your early childhood and the excitement and innovation of modern games. Old Mans Journey 2017 might be the year of the quieter, more introspective indie game, and Old Mans Journey fits the bill perfectly.

Mecha-based anime can be fun to watch for the mechanical designs. While giant bi-pedal robots don't make much practical sense, every once in a while the designers will stick something in there, like a funky car, that combines the fantastical with the pragmatic. A good case in point was 1993's Pat Labor 2 , set in a near-future Tokyo. Because car traffic in the future is depicted to be as bad as it is today, mechanical designers Shoji Kawamori and Yutaka Izubuchi created four-wheeled emergency services vehicles that drive on the ground like regular cars, but can elevate on stilt-like legs, enabling them to whiz over lanes of standstill traffic in order to reach calls. from Pat Labor 2 I always remembered those vehicles, and was stunned to see this video yesterday: While the car is real, it isn't going into mass production; it's a promotional one-off created to flog Verizon's new line of telematics products.

It is estimated between $200,000 and $250,000.

The way the edge-to-edge display is imagined is perhaps the best part of the concept, as we don't know if AR or advanced Siri features are coming in the iPhone 8. UX designer Vianney le Masne imagined an iPhone 8 "without borders" that incorporates iOS 11 and a highly desired feature, dark mode. It has an edge-to-edge display but leaves a top bar in place for the camera. The darker-themed UI is definitely the most interesting part of this idea. An iPhone 8 concept video by Arthur Reis shared by ConceptsiPhone features a device with a nearly edge-to-edge display that continues to have thin bezels, a small indent for a home button, dual cameras, and a glass body. It imagines fantastical non-rumored features like a "hover-sensitive screen," dual front-facing cameras, and an "AirCharger" for long-range wireless charging. There's an ad included from a sponsor in the video at 1:42, so skip ahead to 2:20 to avoid it and see the full conceptual design.

During the first few minutes of the interview, she managed to reveal to the world how mainstream media outlets like the BBC and New York Times were exposed to the reality of the situation in Syria yet absolutely refused to report what they saw. Instead, they reported a lie; i.e. the establishment line that Assad is “killing his own people” and that terrorist atrocities were simply unable to be given definitive attribution. At best, they qualified their reports with fantastical claims by pro-terrorist websites and organizations like the SOHR so heavily that the report itself seemed to “debunk” the actual truth of the matter. Bartlett stated, “On a personal level, for example, in April, 2014, there was a mortar, at least one mortar which struck a school in Old Damascus. The school is called al-Menar and if I recall one child was killed and over sixty were injured.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer struggled Monday to say what’s real. During a tense exchange with NBC NewsPeter Alexander, President Donald Trump’s top spokesman sidestepped a series of pointed questions about whether things the president has said are “real” or “phony.” Trump has said the jobs reports are both — they were fake when they were positive during President Barack Obama’s administration but are “very real now” that Trump is in the White House. That fantastical logic led to direct questions Monday about whether the president’s explosive, evidence-free charge that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the presidential campaign and his unsubstantiated claim that millions voted illegally for Hillary Clinton in the presidential election should be believed. “If he’s not joking, of course,” Spicer said about when Trump should be trusted.

It's hard out here for a famous ginger. At least, that's the case for Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint (forever synonymous with playing Ron Weasley) and international pop star Ed Sheeran . While the two Brits are near the same age, it's Grint who first skyrocketed to global stardom with his childhood turn in the fantastical wizardry universe as jokester Ron. Today, meanwhile, Sheeran has claimed the fame crown thanks to his blockbuster albums, including his latest chart-topping Divide . But the two are known lookalikes, which can be odd when it comes to fan interactions, as James Corden elucidated during Grint's appearance on the Late Late Show Monday night. It's kind of 50-50 now. It could go either way. I could be Ed, or I could be me, Grint explained of the ongoing mix-ups between the two. (For the record, they haven't exactly avoided the doppelgänger trap, even dressing up to match each other on occasion.

As Ralph Gilles put it , the challenge an auto designer faces is to create a vehicle now that will still look relevant ten years into the future. The potential reward is to have produced an enduring piece of design that will be experienced and remembered by millions. Production Designer Colin Gibson had a very different task: To design vehicles that looked relevant a century or more into the future, and which would not endure, but would be destroyed by explosions and impacts. Gibson was tasked with designing the vehicles for Mad Max: Fury Road , working within the fantastical world of director George Miller's dystopian, post-nuclear-holocaust vision. Though most of these vehicles were spectacularly transformed into scrap during filming, thankfully photographer John Platt was invited to document them in their unscathed form prior to shooting. So here we have a view of these cars as you've never seen them, in a jarringly-clean and well-lit studio environment, allowing you to observe their details.
