This pet-activated robotic toy plays an engaging game of cat-and-mouse, lying dormant and waking up with the swat of a paw. There are two different modes of operation – “paw mode” designed for the more docile cat, and “chase mode” designed for more active cats or kittens.

If you are a fan of DC Comics, you might be interested in hearing that both Arrow Season 3 and The Flash Season 1 are coming on Digital Download.

Arrow Season 3

After being gone for five years, during which he suffered unimaginable ordeals, billionaire Oliver Queen returned home to Starling City with a mysterious agenda and a set of new skills that he uses in a war on crime in this hard-hitting action series. Reinventing the DC Entertainment character for a modern-day audience, the Arrow is not a super hero … but a hero — every bit as formidable as the criminals he’s hunting. Determined to right his city’s wrongs and sworn to bring justice to those who have corrupted it, Oliver (aka The Arrow) — with the help of his iron-fisted right hand, John Diggle, the tech-savvy Felicity Smoak and the newest member of the team, Roy Harper — narrowly defeats the vengeful Slade Wilson, his onetime ally and mentor on the island of Lian Yu. But like all wars, there are casualties. Sacrificing herself for her children, Moira Queen falls at the hand of Deathstroke, sending Oliver’s sister, Thea, into self-imposed exile with her biological father, Malcolm Merlyn. Now, to honor his fallen friends and family and protect the people he loves, Oliver must rededicate himself to his cause — to become a beacon of hope for those most in need, and a weapon of justice against those who prey upon them. He is The Arrow.

Arrow: Season Three is available on Digital Download now

The Flash Season 1

From the Arrow creative team of executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg and director David Nutter, THE FLASH is a fast-paced super hero drama that follows the high-speed adventures of the Fastest Man Alive. Written by Berlanti, Kreisberg and DC Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, the action drama follows Central City Police scientist Barry Allen, an everyday guy with the heart of a hero and the genuine desire to help others. Standing still emotionally since the day his mother was murdered (and his father unjustly jailed for the crime), Barry was taken in as a child by the investigating Detective West and raised in a cop’s home alongside West’s supersmart daughter (and Barry’s dream girl) Iris. But when an unexpected and devastating accident at the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator facility strikes Barry, he finds himself suddenly charged with the incredible power to move at super speeds. While Barry has always been a hero in his soul, his newfound powers have finally given him the ability to act like one. With the help of the research team at S.T.A.R. Labs — including billionaire visionary Harrison Wells, biogenetics expert Caitlin Snow and the eternally upbeat Cisco Ramon — Barry begins testing the limits of his evolving powers and using them to stop crime, ensuring that no one suffers a similar tragedy to his own family history. Working with his adopted father Detective West; West’s conceited partner Detective Eddie Thawne and Iris West, who’s earning her degree in Criminal Psychology, Barry uses his superhuman abilities to help the people of Central City and stop the rogues’ gallery of villains — many of whom have also been altered by the particle accelerator explosion. Concealing his identity behind his incredible velocity, Barry can not only accomplish feats faster than human comprehension, but also taps into an energy that allows him to access moments out of time — both past and future. With a winning personality and a smile on his face, Barry Allen — aka The Flash — is finally moving forward in life … very, very fast!

The Flash: Season One is available on Digital Download on 27th May.

Gameforge and developer Robot Entertainment have expanded the full-action PvP title ready for the second phase of the closed beta, which includes numerous new features and also responses to beta tester feedback. Alongside changes to the combat system and general gameplay, players can look forward to a more polished visual experience and also an additional map. And you can get in on the action.

OMDU-KeyArt

The latest version of Orcs Must Die! Unchained is here with lots of changes: the new Trait Builder lets you personalise and strengthen individual heroes, enabling you to adapt them to your style of play. On top of this, heroes are also now set as either attackers or defenders, allowing for a clearer tasking within the team. A ‘traditional’ defender character will still be able to wreck havoc on the front lines and attacking heroes will be able to contribute in defence. Heroes now gain experience during battles, which allows them to rise to a maximum level of 8 within a match, opening up a variety of additional enhancements, buffs and skills to choose from.

The base game tempo has been reduced ever so slightly, allowing players tos et up their battles in a more tactical manner. The revamped environments bring more than just an improved version of Cliffside Clash: a lot of the improved hero skills are now accompanied by a short animation. This allows for both sides to better react to enemy attacks – dodge or counter – adding additional depth to one on one encounters.

As before, players select various minion cards in the Deck Builder to then send these selections on their destructive paths towards the enemy rift. From now on, teams can choose which war camp to release their hordes from. Over the course of a match

an additional slot now opens in the camp, where a powerful boss can be selected from a choice of trolls, ogres and other monsters.

In addition to the already available Cliffside Clash and Highlands maps comes ‘Unchained Fortress’, where players are taken to the home of the namesake orcs. The circular-formed map has a selection of secret paths and passages and demands tactical thinking for success.

So we have 200 keys for the closed beta (these are for the EU only), get one below because when they are gone, they are gone:

As Quadcopter filming becomes ever popular, more and more companies are providing their own consumer level videography solutions.

One such company is Yuneec Inc, who have come up with a potentially game changing all-in-one hardware offering that seems to give a great balance of both in the air AND on the ground filming that could turn the “Pro-sumer” on it’s head.

To find out more, Moobit caught up with Yuneec at their Gadget Show Live stand to get an exclusive glimpse of their upcoming Go-Pro Hero action camera compatible “Pro-Action Steadicam Grip” – due to release later this year – whilst also getting a product tour of their existing proprietary camera toting “CGO Steady Grip” – both of which are compatible with their brilliant “Typhoon Q 500+” Quadcopter which brings you an “all in one box solution” by letting you swap out the 3-axis camera and gimble attached to the Quad Copter and then attach it to the relevant Steadicam Grip – using your own smartphone as a viewfinder!

Look out for a full tech review of this videography solution by moobit in the coming months. In the meantime, further information can be found at the Yuneec Website.
