Answer the call and join the United Empire of Earth's most elite pilots in this cinematic sci-fi adventure from acclaimed developer Chris Roberts. Embark on an epic single-player campaign across the Star Citizen universe, featuring intense combat and an engrossing story delivered by an all-star cast including Mark Hamill, Gary Oldman, and Gillian Anderson.
There is currently no Star Citizen Steam version to download. For now, the only way to get into the game is to download it directly from its website and play it through its own launcher.

I'll probably give this a review later (I like short articles). One thing to note right away is the inconsistent use of linking publishers in citations - "Kickstarter" is linked but "Kotaku" isn't. Taylor Trescott - my talk + my edits 16:56, 10 January 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Print your meal and eat it too! Technology seems to have inspired a chef to design an amazing invention, edible ink made of liquidised food to print a picture snack on low-cal edible paper using a specially designed printer. Chef Homaru Cantu's food paper can even be downloaded from the internet. He adapted an ink-jet printer with computer wizards from local firm Deep Labs. They first experimented with ink made of crushed carrots, tomatoes and purple potatoes. He has already started printing edible menus at his restaurant Moto in Chicago. Diners can rip up the menu and toss it in their soup or have the sheets baked or fried. "You can make an ink-jet printer do just about anything. Just imagine going through a magazine and looking at an ad for pizza. You wonder what it tastes like so you rip a page out and eat it," he added.
Delete Defrosting If this "NASA-based technology" is for real, people who encounter snow fall in winter might be able to keep the ice scraper in the trunk all winter. WorldSource claims that by applying Ice Free to your windows before the chill sets in, you won't have to go through the annoying routine of running the defroster (and wasting gas) and scraping off the ice before you start your journey. The company recommends wiping off the fluid before you drive (is this for visibility purpose, or to sell more product?). I would expect a company in Alaska to have developed the technology, but alas, WorldSource is based in balmy Palm Desert California.
Process cuts computer chip power use In February Sony will start selling a car stereo that simplifies extending your music collection to your car. The $350 Xplod MEX-1GP has a removable faceplate that functions as an external hard drive when connected to a PC. Sony was smart in using a standard USB connector to make it dead simple for the widest variety of users. The faceplate has one gigabyte of flash memory, so you can shuffle between about 50 CDs worth of tunes during your drive, which should get people through even the toughest commute with a smile. The Xplod's CD drive accepts CD-R/RW discs, and it will play both MP3s and Windows Media Audio files. People who buy the Xplod will have to be extra careful to prevent theft as being able to make off with a mini music library is a nice bonus.
Google Earth At long last, Mac users are getting a crack at Google Earth. MacUpdate posted a beta version of the OS X app for download last week, giving many users a sneak peak at the software. And while users' response to the beta was overwhelmingly positive, it turns out the file on MacUpdate was never intended for public consumption, so it's no longer available. Still, it's nice to know the beta seems to be going so well. 2b1af7f3a8
