Here's Your First Look at Henry Cavill in The Witcher Netflix Series

Netflix has given us our first look at The Witcher series’ star, Henry Cavill in costume as Geralt of Rivia to celebrate the show beginning formal production. In a clip shared on Cavill’s Instagram page and the Netflix Twitter account, we see the actor in full costume and makeup, with the long silver hair Geralt also sports in CD Projekt Red’s video game trilogy. We don’t, however, see his prominent scars, or the beard he sported for much of The Witcher 3. Cavill is silent during the clip, but takes a swig from a flask to show that he’s definitely in character. Continue reading…

Undertale Creator Announces and Releases Mysterious New Project

Undertale Creator Announces and Releases Mysterious New Project

Following a tease yesterday, Undertale creator Toby Fox has unveiled Delta Rune, a free follow-up to 2015’s Undertale. As various Undertale fans have pointed out online, Delta Rune is an anagram for Undertale and refers to the symbol on Undertale NPC Toriel’s tunic. Delta Rune’s website contains several warnings in English and Japanese about things like overriding security protocols and refraining from discussing “the program” for 24 hours in the interest of public safety. The site says these warnings are the final ones players will receive before encouraging them to take things into their hands and allowing them to download Delta Rune for PC or Mac. Continue reading…

Transformers Makes for a Smashing Card Game

Transformers Makes for a Smashing Card Game

If you buy something through this post, IGN may get a share of the sale. For more, read our Terms of Use. The new Transformers Trading Card Game from creator Wizards of the Coast allows you and an opponent to roll out opposing teams of robots to see who can smash and blast their way to victory first. Yes, Wizards also makes Magic: The Gathering, but that’s not what Transformers is trying to be. It just wants to simulate a big brawl between giant robots, and in that regard, it succeeds. How It Works To get things started, each player assembles a team of double-sided Transformers cards that start the game in “alt-mode” aka vehicle mode, and then once per turn one can be transformed into “bot mode” by flipping the card over. The act of transforming comes with an effect like drawing extra cards, healing your team, or altering attack and defense stats. Making sure to switch back and forth between modes at the right time becomes an important part of your strategy. Continue reading…

Build a 433MHz radio chat device

Build a 433MHz radio chat device

Sure, WiFi is all well and good, but is it the only option for wireless communication on the Raspberry Pi? What if there isn’t a network available or you need a longer range? 433MHz radio is where you want to be. In this tutorial we’ll add this capability to a pair of Pi boards and show how to send wireless messages from one to the other with no WiFi network. Then, we’ll increase the range with a touch of science and start talking to RF-based switchable main sockets. Have Pi-controlled sockets all around the house! This tutorial was written by PJ Evans and first appeared in The MagPi magazine issue #75. Click here to download your free digital copy of The MagPi magazine. You’ll need 2 × 433MHz transceivers 2 × Mini breadboards 12 × M/F jumper leads RF mains socket kit Prepare your Raspberry Pi boards To demonstrate sending messages using 433MHz, it makes sense to use two Raspberry Pi boards so we can have a conversation. None of what we’re doing here requires much processing power, so any Pi will do, even original Model As or Bs. Depending on what you’re comfortable with, install either full Raspbian Stretch, or – as we’re doing here – Raspbian Lite, as everything will be run from the command line. If you haven’t got access to multiple monitors and keyboards, consider using SSH to access each Pi with two windows on your main computer. That way you can see everything taking place. The parts you’ll need for a 433MHz radio chat device Meet the transceivers Each kit comes with two circuit boards. The longer of the two boards is the receiver, sporting four pins. Before wiring up, check the labelling of these pins very carefully as they do sometimes vary. Regardless of position, there will be 5 V power in (labelled VCC), ground (GND), and two ‘DATA’ lines which transmit the received signals. These are identical so you can use either. The smaller transmitter has three lines, which again can vary in position based on the manufacturer. Just like the receiver, you have VCC for power, GND for ground, and this time, a single data line. Wire-up the breadboard We’re using a tiny breadboard, but any size will work. In fact, a larger board with power and ground rails might be a bit tidier. Carefully insert a receiver and transmitter in each breadboard…
