A team of researchers have designed a program that allows robots to actually evolve, building themselves out of cubes of virtual muscles and bones. This simulated chain of evolution makes for a remarkable discovery in robotics that, much like Skynet, has very well doomed us all.
Game Dev Tycoon, a game about developing games, saw a cracked version released to several torrent sites, and pirates everywhere dipped in for a slice of fun pie. However, the "cracked" version was actually released by the Game Dev Game Devs themselves, and features a nasty surprise - anyone playing the pirated version will quickly find the game unplayable as every game they release is pirated into oblivion.

17 year old Archie Whitehead has just finished his first big project: a homemade Iron Man suit. And it looks super cool.

Invitations have been released for the announcement of a next-generation Xbox in Redmond on May 21st.

And while it will be limited to select press, Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb has confirmed the event will be streamed live.
Anybody who has kept up with the Curiosity Rover's antics on Twitter will know NASA has a cheeky sense of humour; but we never expected this. Looks like an employee has used the Rover to draw a giant penis on the surface of Mars. The photo in question shows one of Spirit’s or Opportunity’s tyre tracks leaving a very appendage-looking impression in the Martian dust.
One small step for man, one giant leap for phallic symbolism.
