Nerdsourcing finds you the best crowd sourcing projects from Kickstater, Indiegogo, and other such sites, and brings them straight to your wallet. Give, help spread the word, or just find out what’s going to be the hot new thing in the future; nerdsourcing is there to help support the dreamers out there looking to make the impossible a reality or those looking for the next big thing an edge on the competition. Time is limited to fund these projects so don’t wait to long.

LA Game Space

Imagine a space where developers work together, share information, show off their newest projects, and you can be a part of it. Now stop imagining and start giving because LA Game Space won’t make it if you don’t open your hearts and your wallets.

This new endeavor aims to develop a space where indie developers can work with others and learn from some of the top minds in the business. The Kickstarter offers up 30 games from developers behind Hotline Miami, Unfinished Swan, and the BIT. Trip series for only a fifteen-dollar donation, but that’s only the tip of the reward iceberg. Additional funding will nab you original art; a pixel portrait from the likes of Paul Robertson, Adam Saltsman, and others; and generous donors can even find themselves in a game. Of course, this isn’t just about gifts and trinkets.

LA Game Space looks to build a hub of information that can be accessed by other developers outside the walls of their space. You don’t have to be in LA to take advantage of the numerous opportunities to collaborate with others or to listen to lectures from other developers that will be posted on YouTube free of charge. Don’t pass up this opportunity to get some great games but to also help those who make the great games you love.

Reward: For $15 dollars, you’ll get 30 games from some of your favorite indie developers, artists, and designers.

How We're Becoming... Repo Men

AshleyEsqueda

Posted November 8, 2012 - By Ashley Esqueda

“How We’re Becoming...” takes a look at existing (and upcoming technology) that seems to have come directly from pop culture, and how it intends to weave new threads into the fabric of society. We’ve all seen or heard something fictional we want desperately to materialize (we’re looking at you, Hoverboard), and these are the concepts that are actually coming true.

Ah, Repo Men. A film where an evil corporation (The Union) privately manufactures and sells artificial organs an insane prices by extending credit to desperate buyers hoping to extend their lives. Remy (Jude Law) and Jake (Forrest Whitaker) play repo guys who show up when you miss a payment to take back past-due organs. That can be... well, messy.

...But what if fully functional vital organs grown in a lab were real? What if, in the near future, we could simply walk into a hospital and buy a fresh heart with no prior owner or fear of our body rejecting it?

Fashion For A Cause -- The Vision Of The Lennon Eyewear Collection

We all take sight for granted. For those of you nearsighted like me, try looking for your glasses in the morning or work with only on contact in and you know what I mean. For everyone else, just pretend you know what I’m talking about.

But it’s more than just ignoring one of our most important senses, but knowing that we can get the problem fixed in under an hour in your local mall or shopping center. Imagine losing those glasses or missing that contact in the middle of a place like Rwanda where getting something as necessary as fresh water can be an insurmountable task. Here, vision is both essential and often too high of a cost.

Adlen is already looking to change that with a revolutionary technology that makes adjusting any your eyewear as easy as turning a knob with Emergensee glasses. Now, you have a chance to help make a difference and look good at the same time by purchasing your own pair of these technological marvels.

  • The tablet is also very thin as 0.28".
  • The design features an aluminum back.
  • The button layout is familiar if you've used an iPad in the past with a sleep/wake button, the volume rocker and the home button.

Microsoft Rolls Out New Logo
 

The Xbox Surface, a 7-inch gaming tablet created by Microsoft, is reportedly in development. According to The Verge, Microsoft has already reached the initial hardware planning stage for the device, which won’t run Windows 8 or Windows RT like the Microsoft Surface, but a custom Windows kernel that focuses on gaming.

As for specs, the Xbox Surface will allegedly be equipped with a  720p HD display, an ARM-based TI CPU and a 28-nanometer AMD graphics processor.

Unfortunately, Microsoft is keeping mum on whether or not they're working on the Xbox Surface, but as we get more details we'll be sure to share them.

Third Party Lightning Docks

Belkin is the first company to put out docks and accessories with lightning connectors for the current generation of Apple products. Belkin will launch two new accessories designed for Apple's Lightning connector, a hardwired car charger and Charge + Sync dock. These are the first of several new Lightning accessories from Belkin that will launch this year.

While many of the Apple-faithful seem to regard the lightning ports on their new devices as a technological leap forward, the more cynical among us see them as a semi-transparent money-grab. Sure, they might be "better" than the old docks in some way, but that doesn't even come close to making up for the price of the now-useless accessories I've purchased over the last 7 or so years. So for me, buying non-Apple docks is a good thing.

After the break you'll find the details on Belkin's first accessories for Apple's new devices.

Memoto

There’s no denying it: we’re oversharers. We take pictures of our food and put them on the internet so that other people can see. It’s become a totally common and acceptable thing to document every moment of your life. If that’s the case, why don’t we just take it to the next level? Memoto does by automatically capturing a photo every 30 seconds from a clip-on wearable camera.

Memoto uploads this mass of photos to the cloud, with GPS and geotagging information so that you’ll know where each memory took place. You can then open up the iPhone and Android app to look at the photos throughout the day in a beautifully presented stop-motion “moment” or individually. You won’t have to worry about people getting access to your photos either, as they’re all encrypted and can only be viewed by you.

Reward: You can snag a Memoto for $249 through the Kickstarter campaign.

Apple Announces iPad Mini, Smaller Cheaper Apple Tablet

I mostly played Assassin's Creed 3 and took naps this weekend, but Apple wasn't sleeping. The company says it sold 3 million iPads.

The company put two new models of the iPad on sale: The fifth generation iPad and the iPad mini, and while they didn't break down how much of each model was sold, the overall sales figures released were ahead of many industry analyst's predictions, so it's a happy Monday in Cupertino.

According to analysts, Apple most likely sold around 1.5 million iPad minis.

Even the aftermath of hurricane Sandy didn't dampen the sales of the new tablets. In New York, Apple reports that many stores are sold out of the devices, even though some residents remain without power. I wonder how many New Yorkers are staring at a slick, perfectly designed paperweight at this very moment.

  • The device is manufactured with what Microsoft calls "Vapor-Mag."
  • The tablet weighs 1.5 pounds, which is evenly distributed so it feels balanced.
  • The kickstand on the back feels very solid.
  • Overall, we were pleasantly surprised with the build quality.
  • The buttons on the device are for volume control and sleep/wake.

Google Nexus Line Adds New Smartphone, Tablet

The Google Android-powered Nexus line of mobile devices just got a bit bigger, with the newly revealed LG Nexus 4 smartphone and Samsung Nexus 10 tablet both set to arrive on November 13, 2012. The tablet is perhaps the most noteworthy, a 10.1-inch beast that bests Apple's iPad in processing power, video resolution, memory, and, most importantly, price. The Nexus 4 falls at $399 for a 16GB, a full $100 less than the iPad.

Meanwhile, the Nexus 4 features a 4.7-inch screen (larger than the 4-inch iPhone 5) and competes with most high-end smartphones out there on the hardware side, save for one key difference: the Nexus 4 offers no support for 4G LTE networks. The Verge has a pretty detailed explanation from Google's Andry Rubin on the reason for the omission, but it basically boils down to the fact that the company hopes to sell the new phone primarily as an unlocked device. Adding 4G support wouldn't just increase the cost, it would also require playing ball with wireless carriers.

The Nexus 4 will sell at $299 and $349 for 8GB and 16GB models, respectively. T-Mobile will also sell a subsidized $199 version with a two-year contract commitment. In related news, Google also announced that the Nexus 7 tablets from Asus will see their storage capacity doubled, to 16GB and 32GB for $199 and $249 models, respectively.
