Talon (PRNewsFoto/Titanium Falcon, Inc.)

Founded in 2014, the company plans to raise $300,000 funds on crowdfunding site Indiegogo.com in a campaign aimed at early gadget adopter and will last one month from the end of this August.

The Smart Ring Gaming Controller, so-called Talon, has a slim fashion design with less than 3.8mm in thickness and at a price no more than $100.

An innovative product always starts from a great idea. “Currently, in order to play motion-controlled games, consumers must purchase all the expensive hardware: TVs, Wii, X-box or Kinect are just a few of them,” says CEO and Founder Guo Juan. “We believe our touch-less and motion controlled smart ring will change the way users play games forever.

By using Bluetooth Low Energy technology and 9-axis motion control sensor, Talon smart ring could connect with any smart device (phone, tablet, smart TV, smart watch, PC/MAC or VR headset), and the ring will convert users’ hand gestures to appropriate input for the game or application.

Titanium Falcon focuses on making the user experience easier and more fun with Talon. “Talon will enable gamers to play games instantly at any place and time, free hand, while on the go,” Guo says. “Users can play mobile games or control applications even when they are doing other things such as running, cooking, taking the bus and so on.”

Talon is also equipped with 2 action buttons to offer more control options for gamers. The ring is compatible with almost all types of games, including shooting, racing and sports games.

Key technology features of the Talon include: Bluetooth low energy, 32-bite CPU, Noise Reduction Technology and 9-axis motion control sensor, including accelerometer, gyroscope and compass.

With a diverse team of designers and engineers, and focusing on renovating the gaming industry by developing the latest wearable product, Titanium Falcon has become a pioneer company in developing innovative smart gear. The company says it just won the 1st Place in the Silicon Valley Entrepreneurs Pitch Fest.

SWORD COAST LEGENDSIndependent developers, n-Space and Digital Extremes, announced that their upcoming Sword Coast Legends™, a party-based RPG set in the Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) Forgotten Realms universe from Wizards of the Coast, will now release on Steam for PC, Mac and Linux on September 29. The PlayStation®4 and Xbox® One versions of Sword Coast Legends are still slated to appear in late 2015.

“We’re extremely excited to show everyone what we’ve been up to with Sword Coast Legends, but it looks like our dungeon bosses need a few more hit points … Larethar needs even more of a Scottish accent … and the game itself could use a touch ‘more cowbell,'” said Dan Tudge, President of n-Space and Director for Sword Coast Legends. “All kidding aside, our fans deserve nothing less than whatever it takes on our part to deliver the compelling roleplaying dynamic of Dungeons & Dragons tabletop to the world of cooperative multiplayer video games. If that means the game needs a few additional weeks of balancing, tuning and general polish — so be it.”

“While it’s hard to wait a few more weeks for Sword Coast Legends to drop, I’m happy the n-Space team is dedicated to crafting a quality D&D experience. All pre-orders getting the Rage of Demons DLC for free is exciting news,” said Nathan Stewart, Brand Director of Dungeons & Dragons at Wizards of the Coast. “And for D&D fans, the Rage of Demons DLC gives them another exciting way to face the demon lords in the Underdark.”

Media attending this week’s Gamescom in Cologne, Germany can see and experience Sword Coast Legends first hand by visiting the G.A.M.E. Booth in Business Center Hall 2.1, Booth #C30. Later this month, Sword Coast Legends will also make its first playable debut at PAX Prime in Seattle, August 28-31, at the Wizards of the Coast Rage of Demons Booth #1642.

The studios also announced that all current and future Sword Coast Legends pre-orders will receive the very first DLC, “Rage of Demons,” free. Sword Coast Legends is currently available for pre-order from Steam and the PlayStation Store for $34.99. In addition to the free DLC, Digital Deluxe and Collector’s Editions, which include a tome of knowledge, cloth map of the Sword Coast, the official soundtrack, numerous in-game bonuses, starter items and DM abilities, as well as a statue of the powerful demon Belaphoss (Collector’s Edition) are also available for pre-order for $59.99 and $239.99, respectively, from Swordcoast.com Details regarding the upcoming “Rage of Demons” DLC expansion for Sword Coast Legends will be announced at a later date.

A new scam targeting iPhone owners has been spotted out in the wild, the phishing scam entices users to click through to a link – claiming their devices have been hacked and data is being stolen. The scam presents its self in a pop up message purporting to be from Apple.

The message requests the user hand over £50 or risk loosing all of their devices data. The user is prompted to dial either 0800 6524895 or 0800 2796211. Should a user fall for the message and submit their card details, nothing will change on their device, but the users bank balance will deplete by at least £50.

There are a few important things to note; firstly Apple would never contact iPhone owners using push messages, secondly they’re unlikely to pick up on the fact someone is stealing your data. Whats more, it would be almost impossible (unless jailbroken) for someone to connect on remotely and steal data stored on iPhones

The message seems to have foxed some users, however its quite an easy fix to get rid of it without having to pay the premium.

From the home screen, swipe up from the bottom of the iPhone then switch the device to Airplane mode. Now, head over to Settings and Safari, scroll down and tap ‘Clear History and Website Data’. Now scroll back up the screen and swipe to turn on ‘Block Pop-ups’ this will prevent any future pop-ups occurring.

Thanks to Ben Mortimer for the heads up on this one.



Rocket League

Hands On:


One of the best types of games is that which allows you to have a lot of fun without too many rules or complications. This is exactly what happened with Rocket League, a game that has appeared out of nowhere and which is now transformed into an e-sport within less than a week after its release.

What makes this game so impressive is the fact that it’s a vehicle based action game and it seamlessly combined RC car driving with soccer. You will play on different fields and the main idea is to work with your team, which can be formed out of 2, 3 or 4 individuals in order to score as many goals within the limited amount of time.
