This video was a TV show in Brazil. You got trapped inside the elevator and ghost appears. No one was harmed in making this video but definitely not a nice prank to set up. Watch the video after the break. Read more…

Google launches 11.6-inch ARM-based Samsung Chromebook: $249, ultrathin, 6.5-hour battery, 1080p video
October 22nd, 2012
Google just launched the latest iteration of its Chrome OS-based laptop here in San Francisco — the $249 (or £229, for those in the UK) 11.6-inch Samsung Chromebook. It’s ARM-based (fanless), 0.8-inches thick, weighs only 2.43 pounds, runs 6.5+ hours on battery, boots in under 10 seconds and supports 1080p video playback. Pre-orders start today at Amazon and PC World, and the laptop includes Google Now integration using Google Drive as a transport and comes with 100GB of free storage for two years. It will be available for sale on the Play Store and featured prominently at retailers like Best Buy, and naturally, we’re expecting this one to make a bigger splash than prior models based on the bargain bin price alone.
Under the hood, there’s a dual-core A15-based Samsung Exynos 5 Dual (5250) SoC, 2GB RAM, 16GB of built-in flash storage, WiFi a/b/g/n and Bluetooth, all of which should act to give this Chromebook a lot more oomph compared to slower, earlier models. Other specs include a 1366 x 768 native screen resolution, a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 socket, combo headphone / mic jack, an SD card slot and a “full-size Chrome keyboard.” Hit up the links below for the nitty-gritty, or hop on past the break for a promo vid.

The minds at GoPro have been busy lately. Earlier this month, the company pulled the wraps off its long-awaited app for the iPhone and iPad. When combined with the optional WiFi BacPac for the Hero2, the application can link to multiple cameras to change settings on the fly, as well as preview video and photos without having to remove the camera from its case or mount. Even better, the software is free, though GoPro will ask you to pony up around $60 for the WiFi add on. While the app is only available for Apple devices at the moment, GoPro says an Android version is in the works.
That’s exciting and all, but not nearly as much as word that the new Hero3 has officially hit the market. The Hero3 Black Edition is a full 30 percent smaller than its predecessor, which means its also a quarter lighter. Designers made the gadget twice as powerful, though, building in 1440p video at 48 frames per second, 1080p at 60 fps, and 720p at 120 fps. Even more surprising, the camera can click off 12-megapixel photos at a staggering 30 shots per second. WiFi is now built in, and the Black Edition includes the handy WiFi remote. Check out the videos below to see the new gear in action while we update our holiday wish lists.

The Porsche 962 dominated racetracks, and you’ll be pleased to see that it’s equally at home on public roads. The video above shows a street-legal Porsche 962C prototype acting like just another daily driver in Japan.
Despite looking bouncy on the surface streets, the driver states that it’s fairly easy to live with behind the wheel. To illustrate this, we’re treated to the sight of a 962 tackling day-to-day mundanities like filling up at a gas station, then heading to a convenience store for a Red Bull. (Note the parking spot that’s chosen.)
As is the case with most auto enthusiasts, the owner of this 962 fell in love with the car while watching it race. The video, beautifully produced, delves into some of that history as well as the backstory for this particular car. It’s a fun watch, so check it out below. Read more…

If you’ve never heard of the Romaniacs Hard Enduro Rallye, crack open your ears for a spell. The race is a grueling four-day event that slithers through the Carpathian mountains of Romania.
We aren’t talking about battling some logging road, either. The competitors who tackle Romaniacs bolt up ridge sides, climb waterfalls and tear across open terrain in an attempt to set the best recorded time. A single stage can put the riders through 30,000 feet of climbing over incredibly varied terrain. This is a competition where no single skill set will nab you the title. Rather, riders need to be well-rounded to take all 400 miles head on.
This year, Red Bull worked up a Signature Series on the event, following competitors through all four stages and documenting the carnage in beautiful HD. The 45-minute-long video is entirely TV quality, and while it requires a serious time commitment, it’s also completely worth a slice of your day. You can check it out for yourself below – just don’t blame us if you find yourself wanting an enduro machine of your own once you finish.

Say it with us: Developers! Developers! Developers! That’s Steve Ballmer’s mantra and indeed, it says a lot about the way Microsoft has gone about promoting Internet Explorer. In addition to a series of prime-time ads, the company has been using certain HTML 5 apps to show devs what they can do using IE 10′s deep multitouch support. Now the outfit’s back, this time with a game: Contre Jour is coming to the web, and while it runs in any modern browser, you’ll need IE 10 and a Windows 8 machine to play a third of the levels (it shouldn’t make a difference if you have a touchscreen or a multitouch trackpad). That’s because in some parts of the game, you’ll be required to use as many as three fingers at once to pull off certain maneuvers. In IE 10 you can do this, so you get access to all 30 levels; if you’re using a different browser that doesn’t support these gestures, the levels will remain locked. Hit up the source link to play the game for free, and if a game based on “The Little Prince” doesn’t do much for you, at least check out the Behind the Scenes section — coding geeks should appreciate the deeper explanation as to how the web app was built.

Is that old pro-gaming keyboard you have finally breaking down from years of use, its blue backlight fading to teal (or worse) as the days go on? Are you ready to spend over $100 to get back in the game? Then you, ideal consumer, sound like a good match for Logitech’s newest gaming keyboard, the G710+. “Plus what?” you ask? Well, it’s a standard G-series performance keyboard from Logitetch, plus a white LED backlight, anti-ghosting tech, under-key dampening to help with all the clickety-clacketing, and a promised 50-million keystroke life span.
A set of “G-keys” along the left side allows for assignable macros and scripts, should you need to suddenly maximize your APM mid-StarCraft 2 match (and let’s be honest, you’ve totally been there) — sadly, the G710+ only works with Windows Vista and up, so you’ll have to maximize those actions exclusively on a PC for now.
The Logitech G710+ arrives at retail in the US this October for $150, and heads to Europe starting in December at an undetermined price — check after the break for full specs and a quick demo video.

The racing-fueled programmers at Codemasters have been pretty busy of late, it seems. The crew recently pinned a bow on their latest racing game, F1 2012, and has just shown off another highly anticipated sequel, GRID 2, at the Eurogamer Expo.
GRID 2 seems to incorporate a lot of what we like about F1 2012, including, we’re guessing, the physics modeling behind a new TrueFeel Handling System. We’ve got a bit of a wait before we can test this out for ourselves – the new game is due out in the summer of 2013 – but there will be many a promo trailer to watch between now and then, including this first set of two.
In the first video, a new Ford Mustang Boss 302 and a vintage Mach 1 dice for position on a redwood-lined California coastal road. In the second, the streets of Chicago are the venue, and a Chevrolet Camaro SS, Corvette Z06 and a Mustang are included amongst the motive combatants. Scroll down to check them out.

If you’ve ever found yourself thinking the world needs more miniature supercharged V8 engines, think no more. Conley Precision Engines has put the finishing touches on its Stinger 609; a 6.09 cubic inch, fully-functional V8 engine. The little mill has its own supercharger, dual carburetors and a functional serpentine belt and turns out a full nine horsepower. The machine revs to a lofty 10,000 rpm and sounds like the offspring of a dentist’s drill and a lumpy-cam small block. In other words, it’s perfect. The Stinger 609 is 14 inches long from tip to tailshaft, just under half as wide and sits 10 inches tall. It tips the scales at 11.25 pounds.
Think this is the world’s greatest paperweight? We’d be inclined to agree if the machine didn’t carry such an eye-widening price tag. Conley Precision Engines will politely ask for $7,000 before handing you your own scale blown V8. We’re just happy to live in a world where something like this exists. Check out a quick clip of the engine in action below.
Google Street View gets its first underwater panoramic images, ready for desk-based scuba expeditions
October 1st, 2012
After working on its sea legs for some time, Google Street View is ready to take users on virtual scuba expeditions through six living coral reefs with the first underwater panoramic images to hit the service. In partnership with The Catlin Seaview Survey, Mountain View created the on-rails snorkeling experiences using undersea pictures from Heron, Lady Elliot and Wilson Islands at the Great Barrier Reef, Molokini Crater and Hanauma Bay in Hawaii and the Apo Islands in the Philippines. Combined with views from Chichen Itza and Teotihuacan, the new underwater tours might make for a respectable, desk-based vacation. Interested in paddling through the briny depths?
