DUALSHOCK 4 Back Button Attachment

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , on January 25, 2020 by getbent57

DUALSHOCK_4_Back_Button_AttachmentThere is an interesting device come for the PS4’s Dualshock 4 controller.  It is called the Back Button Attachment..  It is a small device that plugs into the bottom of the controller.  Which adds two buttons to the back.  These can be programed to be what ever buttons you want it to be.  This idea has been used in high end third party controllers for a few years now.  It is a cool idea.  Thinking the new PS5 controller will have this all ready built in.  As for this device it’s self was out on January 23, 2020.  Amazon.ca has it listed for $40.00.  I have no need for one but if they ever get mark down in the future might get one.

Simon_&_Garfunkel_El_Condor_Pasa_(If_I_Could)Time again for musical throwback Thursday.  Going with a Simon & Garfunkel song  El Condor Pasa (If I could).  Haven’t heard this one in years.  Until the day before I wrote this post.  A lady at work had it playing on her phone.  Could remember hearing it as a kid on a record.  It is off their 1970 album Bridge Over Troubled Water.  It’s a great song that gets stuck in your head in a good way.  Give it a listen > here or below.

The Walking Dead: World Beyond News

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 22, 2020 by getbent57

The_Walking_Dead_World_BeyondHave some new news to share about the third Walking Dead show, The Walking Dead: World Beyond.  We now know when it will air.  Right after the last episode of season ten of The Walking dead, April 12, 2020.  There will be ten episodes.  This is all good news.  But there is more they have all said there will only be two seasons.  Which I find interesting that they would do this.  Then again if they have it all planed out from the start it would make the storylines easier and to the point.   I will be checking it out.  Thinking at some point they will put out a new trailer.

Photogrammetry

PhotogrammetryHave printed off a few things with my Elegoo Mars 3D printer.  There are all kinds of cool files you can download.  That’s all fine.  But wanted to make my own.  Have played around with Tinkercad.  Then got thinking there has to be way to scan real world objects to turn them in to a 3D file.  Looked into that.  There are all kinds of scanners you can buy but they cost way to much.  Then found out about photogrammetry.  Basically it is a software that you load pictures into that turns them into to a 3D.  The trick is you need to take lots of pictures at many different angles.  When the weather gets nice going to try this my motorcycle.  In the mean time got things why not try this with a video game.  Have been playing No Man’s Sky a lot.  The ship I have is pretty cool.  The game goes have a photo mode.  Got thinking this would be awesome to print off.  My next day off going to give it a try.  There is some free software out there with I will try first.  It is called Meshroom.

[Update]  Tried this out with No Man’s Sky and it didn’t work.  The software doesn’t work this just regular .jpg’s.  It needs to have the metadata from the camera as well.

GDemu For The Dreamcast

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , on January 20, 2020 by getbent57

GDemuFor a few years how have been thinking about getting a GDemu for the Sega Dreamcast.  This is a device that replaces the disc drive in the Dreamcast.  You take apart, remove the drive and in it’s place you put the GDemu.  The device lets you run games off an SD card.  It’s is pretty cool.  The thing is they were very pricey.  However now there are some clones out there.  Some going for about $70.00.  You can find them on Amazon and Ebay.  Going to think on it for a bit.  If I do get one will be back with a post.

Cyberpunk 2077 Delayed Until September

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 18, 2020 by getbent57

Have some said news to share about Cyberpunk 2077, it has been delayed.  Was very much looking forward to April 16, 2020 release.  But now that day will be September 17, 2020.  Not much we can do about it but wait another six months.  There are some saying that it will be a next gen game with the PS5 and new Xbox.  It just might be.  That being said it will be on Xbox One and PS4.  Which I will get it for.  Can’t see myself getting a PS5 right way.  Just know they will be hard to come by and then there is the price point we know nothing about yet.
