Stadia is coming to Chromecast with Google TV on June 23rd

Published

on

Google has only supported Stadia on the web, phones, tablets and Chromecast Ultra until now. At long last, the company is bringing the game streaming platform to more devices. On June 23rd, Stadia will be available on Chromecast with Google TV, the company’s latest streaming dongle, and Android TV devices such as NVIDIA Shield TV and Shield TV Pro. 

The other Android TV devices with full Stadia support at the outset are Hisense Android Smart TVs (U7G, U8G, U9G); Onn FHD Streaming Stick and UHD Streaming Device; Philips 8215, 8505, and OLED 935/805 Series Android TVs; and Xiaomi MIBOX3 and MIBOX4.

If you have an Android TV device that isn’t on the initial list, you can still access Stadia as an experimental feature. You’ll need to opt in after downloading the app from the Play Store. Google notes that Stadia won’t work perfectly on every Android TV device just yet, however. Full support may come to more devices down the line.

You’ll be able to play games with the Stadia Controller or a compatible Bluetooth controller. Google will soon update a help center article with more details on compatibility.

Stadia’s arrival on more devices is a much-needed step for the beleaguered but solid game streaming platform. The more accessible Stadia is, the more likely players are to actually use it. Bringing the platform to more devices that don’t necessarily have the oomph to run blockbuster games natively is a positive move for Stadia and would-be players without a modern console or gaming PC.

Apple’s regular AirPods have dropped to just $100 at Amazon

It’s not just AirPods Pro on sale this weekend. Amazon is also selling the current-generation AirPods with wired charging case for just $100 after a checkout discount — much less than their official $159. You can also snag the earbuds with a wireless charging case for $150 (down from $199) if you can’t stand cables.

Buy AirPods (wired case) at Amazon – $100

Buy AirPods (wireless case) at Amazon – $150

The regular AirPods are still considered the “default” for true wireless earbuds, and for good reason. While the sound is unspectacular, they’re easy to use, reliable, and provide solid battery life for commutes (now that they’re becoming a thing again) and video calls. While they’ll work with Android, the experience is virtually seamless if you use Apple devices.

You’ll have to temper your expectations, of course. On top of the audio quality and Apple-centric support, the ‘entry’ AirPods don’t fit as well as the Pro or boast its workout-ready water resistance. You’ll want to head elsewhere if you want buds to go for a run or answer calls in the rain. At this price, though, the features are easily in line with expectations.

Amazon’s new Fire HD 10 tablet falls to $80 for Prime Day

Amazon’s Fire range of tablets are great for Alexa and Prime loyalists who don’t mind missing out on a few apps. With Prime Day looming, the retailer is offering a 40 percent discount to Prime members on its biggest slates for adults and kids. The Fire HD 10 is currently $80, down from $150, while the Fire HD 10 Kids model is $120, down from $200. 

Buy Fire HD 10 at Amazon – $80 Buy Fire HD Kids at Amazon – $120

Both feature a 10.1-inch, full HD screen, an octa-core 2 GHz processor and 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. Though, you should note that the deal is for the Fire HD 10 with “lockscreen ads.” That means you’ll be shown personalized ads on the screensaver in sleep mode and at the bottom of the tablet’s home screen. Once purchased, you’ll have to make a one-off payment to permanently remove the sponsored messages.

If you want a tablet to browse the web, check your socials, watch streaming apps and make Zoom calls, then the Fire HD 10 is a solid option. The biggest caveat is the lack of Google apps, and generally far fewer apps than you’d find on the Play Store or Apple App Store. But, Amazon has the main bases covered: There’s Netflix, Disney+, Roblox for the kids, Zoom, Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and TikTok. Plus, Amazon’s suite of apps, ranging from Prime Video to Amazon Music and Kindle. 

You can also summon Alexa to make voice calls, check the news and weather, find stuff to watch and put on some tunes. In fact, the Fire HD 10 features a “Show Mode” that essentially turns it into a smart display, putting Alexa front and center. The Kids model, obviously, doesn’t have ads, filters out mature content (with added parental controls like screen time presets) and comes with a bright protective case.

Amazon’s Fire TV Stick 4K drops to $25 before Prime Day

Amazon’s Fire TV devices provide a cheap and easy way to transform a sub-par TV into a serious streaming hub. Ahead of Prime Day, several of the gadgets are on sale for Prime members, making an already affordable range even cheaper. Amazon’s compact streamer, the Fire TV Stick 4K, is on offer for $25, down from $50. If you can settle for full HD, then the entry-level Fire TV Stick Lite has been discounted by $12, bringing it to just $18. While Amazon’s most powerful streaming device, the Fire TV Cube, is down to $80 from $120.

For those on a budget, the Fire TV Stick 4K and Fire TV Stick Lite offer reliable access to Amazon’s Fire TV software for free and premium streaming apps and on-demand content. Both the dongles hide out of view behind your TV and come with the Alexa Voice Remote, though the Stick Lite version doesn’t feature TV controls. Of the two, the Fire TV Stick 4K is easily worth the extra cash as it supports 4K Ultra HD, Dolby Vision, HDR, and HDR10+.

Whereas the Fire TV Cube is Amazon’s top-of-the line streamer. The substantial, box-shaped device boasts the best processor out of the lot, can handle Alexa voice commands, and also offers 4K, Dolby Vision and HDR+ support. What’s more it has an Ethernet adapter for those looking to boost their tepid connection. That should also come in handy if you want to try out Amazon’s Luna cloud gaming service.

Airspeeder completes the first test flight for its electric flying race car

Published

on

Electric air racing just took a significant step forward. The Verge reports that Airspeeder recently completed the first test flight for its electric flying race car, the Alauda Aeronautics Mk3. A remote pilot flew an uncrewed version of the eVTOL aircraft over southern Australia with the country’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority watching over the test.

The machine can reach altitudes up to 1,640 feet and hit 62MPH in 2.8 seconds. Remote pilots fly in a cockpit-like environment through virtual courses, with LiDAR and radar helping to prevent collisions. Crucially, the design is meant to minimize downtime. While the Airspeeder racer can only fly for up to 15 minutes on a charge, teams can swap batteries in as little as 20 seconds.

The test flight clears the path for a three-event EXA uncrewed racing series, starting later in 2021, that will feature up to four teams with two pilots each. Data from those competitions, including dummy “tele-robotic” avatars in the cockpits, will ideally lead to directly human-piloted races in 2022.

Airspeeder will still deal with many of the challenges of electric flight, including the short-lived batteries. All the same, this test and the subsequent races suggest EV air races are quickly becoming practical. It may be more a question of refining the technology than getting it into the skies in the first place.
