Toshiba has been working on a cool little robot that acts as a voice gateway to just about anything in your room with a remote control. The name is derived from an Italian word that means “little by little” and it’s exactly how the robot learns.
Set him up near your TV, and as you use the remote, ApriPoco will ask you what you did. Over time the robot builds up a library of all the actions you do with the control, and connects it with your voice command.

Star Wars: The Old Republic recently released some new information about “Flash Points” that we will find in the SWTOR universe. These self contained instances take your character through an adventure that you can complete with your friends.
Aside from using teamwork to get through the challenge, each flash point appears to offer a cool story that you can take part in while you complete your mission. We really love how they are injecting all sorts of cool cut scenes and decision making into these flash points… plus having a story to get into doesn’t hurt either!

They are equipped to face any foe in any environment, but it’s not their gear that makes them tough—it’s their courage.
