DJIs newest, technically impressive (and expensive) drone is here. It addresses issues with visual quality, short flight time and a simplified flying experience. Judging by Associate Editor Steve Dents review, its an incredible drone, even if some features were missing at launch. The Mavic 3 is peerless when it comes to image quality so that speaks to who its aimed at. Its definitely not for the beginner drone dilettante, like me. Read our full review here and make sure to watch our (gorgeous) review, too. Mat SmithBethesda shows off more 'Starfield' Take a look at some concept art and footage from the sci-fi RPG.Theres still roughly a year to go before Starfield launches on PC and Xbox Series X/S, but Bethesda has released a seven-minute Into the Starfield: The Endless Pursuit featurette to show off a lot of concept art and work-in-progress assets. Game director Todd Howard also offered a tease. He said Starfield has "two step-out moments." Many other games typically only have one of those, in which the player sees the expanse of an open-world environment for the first time. Expect a leap from a planet to a galaxy to a universe. Or maybe time travel.

Steve Verze received the high-tech version as a permanent replacement for his traditional prosthetic eye. "It makes me feel more and more confident," he told On Demand News. "If I can't spot the difference, I know other people won't spot the difference."Previously, doctors would need to make a mold of the eye socket, but this new process involves a non-invasive 2.4-second scan using a specially modified ophthalmic scanner that delivers a precise measurement of the eye socket. That data combines with a color-calibrated image of the healthy eye, which is then replicated in a 3D print model. Verze's prosthetic is a precursor to a forthcoming clinical trial that will evaluate the effectiveness of 3D printed eyes vs. traditional, handmade eyes.Continue reading.Record-breaking Twitch streamer Ludwig Ahgren is moving to YouTubeHe's following other prominent streamers like CourageJD, TimTheTatMan and DrLupo.YouTube Gaming continues to poach Twitch talent, and the latest to defect is "Ludwig" Ahgren.
