For Cyber Week, Dell Small Business is offering a crazy good deal on an Alienware Aurora RTX 30 Series Gaming PC.

There's a coupon code that takes $550 off an Alienware Aurora gaming PC that's equipped with an RTX 3060 Ti video card. The great thing is that there are options to upgrade the RTX 3060 Ti to an RTX 3070, RTX 3080, RTX 3080 Ti, or RTX 3090, and the coupon code will still apply. Best of all, according to the Dell website, these configs will ship out in December.A note on Dell Small Business: anyone can purchase there just like on Dell's consumer website; you can treat Dell Small Business as exactly the same as Dell Home.Better Than Black Friday / Cyber Monday: Alienware Aurora R12 Gaming PC with Your Choice of RTX 30 Series Video CardThere were two excellent high-end Alienware gaming PC deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday: an RTX 3080 Ti equipped PC for $2700 and an RTX 3090 PC for $3200.

The Biggest Games Releasing In December: Halo Infinite, Endwalker, And More

December is usually a quiet month for gaming, barring exceptions like last year’s launch of Cyberpunk 2077, and this year it’s mostly business as usual. Mostly. Microsoft’s launch of Halo Infinite on December 8 is easily its most high-profile release of the year, and after years of development, Master Chief’s next adventure is already carrying a ton of expectations on its Mjolnir armor-clad shoulders.Halo Infinite will also be going up against Final Fantasy XIV’s Endwalker expansion, which was slightly delayed from its original November launch date, as well as several other smaller titles.Halo Infinite (Dec. 8)Halo InfiniteThe next chapter in the Halo series looks like it’ll be hitting a mix of traditional action with more freedom than ever before, as Master Chief will be exploring a new world filled with mystery, danger, and vantage points that are just begging for you to take a grappleshot swing over them. A game of two parts, Halo Infinite’s campaign will be a separate paid product, while its multiplayer launched earlier in November as a free-to-play product. Both parts of the Halo Infinite experience will also be available through Game Pass, so you won’t have to worry about missing out on either part of the package.Continue Reading at GameSpot

Review Roundup Of Big Brain Academy: Brain Vs. Brain

Review Roundup Of Big Brain Academy: Brain Vs. Brain

At this time of year, most people are running on cerebral fumes and are in dire need of a short break. If you’re worried that you’ll need a tune-up before you head back into work, Nintendo’s latest Big Brain should give your grey matter a solid workout. At least that’s the intention, as the critical consensus on the latest Big Brain Academy appears to be lukewarm.Reviews paint a picture of a game that has a reliable selection of brainteasers, but the new shift towards competitively comparing your overall intelligence and high scores in these mini-games might be discouraging to people who want a deeper focus on personal improvement.”Brain vs. Brain is centered around competition, and feels a little less approachable for it,” critic Steve Watts said in his Big Brain Academy: Brain Vs. Brain review. “That’s not to say the game itself shames you. Dr. Lobe is as positive and encouraging as ever, always couching weak spots in gentle terms and nudging you to spend some more time practicing any fields where you didn’t excel. But when you create a puzzle game ostensibly about measuring intelligence, and then pit a player against both friends and a worldwide gaming audience, it’s going to be fertile ground for planting self-doubt.”Continue Reading at GameSpot

Living Robots Called Xenobots Can Now Reproduce, Scientists Say

Living Robots Called Xenobots Can Now Reproduce, Scientists Say

Scientists who created the first living robots have revealed that the organisms, known as xenobots, can now reproduce, according to their study.Created using stem cells from the African Clawed Frog (Xenopus laevis), xenobots are less than one millimetre wide and can move, work together as a group and even self-heal.But now, the scientists who developed them have found they can reproduce in an entirely new way – completely different from the biological reproduction of any living plant or animal.“I was astounded by it,” professor of biology and director of the Allen Discovery Center at Tufts University, Michael Levin said, as reported by CNN. This new form of reproduction sees the xenobots effectively harvest loose stem cells, gathering them together into piles which can then mature into xenobots.“Frogs have a way of reproducing that they normally use,” Levin said. “But when you … liberate [the cells] from the rest of the embryo and you give them a chance to figure out how to be in a new environment, not only do they figure out a new way to move, but they also figure out apparently a new way to reproduce.”However, they soon discovered that replication happened rarely with the original, spherical-shaped xenobots. And only under specific circumstances. The bots used a process known as kinetic replication – known to occur at a molecular level but never seen on this scale, using entire cells or organisms.After realising the xenobots shape was hindering them, researchers used AI to test a variety of new body shapes to maximise the stem cell harvesting process. The AI settled on a C-shape which resembles iconic gaming character, Pac-Man.“The AI didn't program these machines in the way we usually think about writing code. It shaped and sculpted and came up with this Pac-Man shape,” lead author of the study, Josh Bongard said – a computer science professor and robotics expert at the University of Vermont. “The shape is, in essence, the program. The shape influences how the xenobots behave to amplify this incredibly surprising process.”Stem cells are often used in medicine to replace damaged cells or to fight certain forms of cancer and blood-related diseases. However, their use as biological robots involved merely harvesting the cells from frog embryos and leaving them to incubate.“Most people think of robots as made of metals and ceramics,” Bongard said. “But it's not so much what a robot is made from but…
