Basically, what this does is that it will take your Android device, like a smartphone or tablet, and turn it into a ready-to-go smart display.

According to Google, “Google Assistant’s Ambient Mode is a new visual overview that makes it easier to see notifications and reminders, start a playlist and control smart home devices on the lockscreen of your device.

Doom 64 Will Be Coming To The Nintendo Switch This November

DOOM 64 Will Be Coming To The Nintendo Switch This November

If you love playing old and classic video games, Nintendo and Bethesda might have some news that could make you very happy. In a tweet by the official DOOM account, it has been revealed that DOOM 64 will be launching on the Nintendo Switch console this coming November, or to be more specific, the 22nd of November.

In case you’re not familiar with DOOM 64, this is a title that was originally released back in 1997 where in case the name already did not give it away, was a version of Doom that was launched for the Nintendo 64 console. It was not a port of the game, but rather a sequel. It has been about 22 years since (we wonder if this might be the reason behind the 22nd of November date) so if you’re looking to relive a classic, then you’ll want to keep an eye out for it.

Overwatch Legendary Edition Will Be Coming To The Nintendo Switch

Overwatch Legendary Edition Will Be Coming To The Nintendo Switch

This is because in an announcement made by Blizzard and Nintendo, it looks like the Overwatch Legendary Edition will be making its way onto the Switch console. Despite its name, this is essentially Overwatch for the Switch, but there will be some changes made to the gameplay where it will take advantage of the gyroscopes built into the console.

Canadian Carrier Claims Android 10 Will Be Released September 3

Canadian Carrier Claims Android 10 Will Be Released September 3

Google has yet to officially confirm when Android 10 will be released. We expect that it should be soon as the company usually tries to tie it in with the launch of their Pixel phones, but according to Canadian carrier Rogers, it seems that the update could actually launch a lot earlier than expected.

How early? According to Rogers, they are claiming that the update will be released on the 3rd of September, which is actually next week! Of course, don’t expect the update to arrive to your phone unless you own a Google Pixel device. This is because one of the advantages of owning a Pixel handset is that you get updates first and before everyone else, so if you own a phone from a different brand, it will depend on how quickly they choose to release it.

Nissan Propilot Golf Ball Will Make You One-putt Every Single Green

Nissan ProPilot golf ball will make you one-putt every single green

Attention golfers: Put down that $5 Titleist. You don't want it anymore. At least on the green, it's not the best you can do. Nissan has your back with a brand new golf ball that finds the hole all on its own, so long as you're putting. It's called the ProPilot golf ball, and the video provided is really something (watch above). How does it work? First, you need an overhead camera. This camera detects the position of the ball and cup in real time. We're thinking we could play this one off as wanting to vlog our golf game with our buddies. Pay no mind to the floating camera above, we say. Once the ball starts moving, a monitoring system calculates the correct route needed based on the ball's movement. It then adjusts the trajectory accordingly. We're sure all the computer hardware will fit in your golf cart. Maybe you're worried you didn't hit the ball hard enough? It doesn't matter. There's an internal electric motor in the golf ball that can provide enough force to move the ball on its own. Sure, that's creepy, but it'll also save you the embarrassment of coming up inches short on that next 20-foot birdie putt. At this point, we're sure you all want to be the kid in the video absolutely shredding it on the green. It's now that we have to break your heart, and tell you that this golf ball is only a concept. Nissan hasn't shown any intention to sell a commercial version of its entire setup, which would likely cost thousands if it did. Honestly, though, that may be less than what you'd pay in a lifetime of golfing lessons. The company is going to let folks try it out, so long as you're in Yokohama, Japan. Visitors to the company HQ from Aug. 29 through Sept. 1 will be allowed to feel like a putting god for a short time. Nissan is selling it as ProPilot Assist (its driver assistance system), but for golf. Now if only Nissan could figure out a way to make sure our drives landed in the fairway, too ...
