CNET Update: Ouya game console launch pushed back

2:52 /

The Android-based video game console is delayed due to high demand, Hipstamatic spins off a new social app, and a Huggies device sends a tweet when it's time for a diaper change.

You'll have to wait to oggle with the Ouya. I'm Bridget Carey, and this is your CNET Update. The video game startup Ouya has pushed back the launch date of its console system until June 25th, which is three weeks later than when it was originally supposed to ship. The Ouya is an Android-based game system for the living room that costs $99, and all games are downloadable and free to try. The company says the launch is delayed because it needs more time to meet high retail demand. And Ouya's CEO also said the company is making adjustments to improve the controller. The Ouya will be sold at Amazon, Best Buy, Gamestop, and Target. But it's already been shipping devices to people who funded its original development through kick-starter donations. Technology has enriched our lives in so many ways. And now, thanks to an invention at Huggies baby's consented tweet when they have peed in their diapers. Yes. This is happening. Huggies TweetPee is a system with a sensor that attaches to the baby's diaper, and when it's time to change, the unit will alert mom and dad with a tweet. And you could re-tweet it to let all your followers know that your baby made a #tinkle. Right now, it's only being promoted in Brazil. But perhaps, someday, it will come to the US. So, we can bless all of our followers with pee-pee tweets. There's another great invention, this time, from South Africa. A company has invented a way to deliver a beer to you by a helicopter drone. During the South African OppiKoppi Music Festival this August, the OppiKoppi beer drone will be loaded with beer and flown over festival goers arriving at the GPS location of anyone who orders a cold one from the mobile app. The beer is dropped by parachute and reloaded at a nearby station. Because it's so new, it's just a promotion right now because it would be tragic to pay for a beer and have it accidentally delivered to the wrong person. In the battle of photo apps with trendy filters, Instagram won the popularity contest, leaving Hipstamatic in the dust. Even though Hipstamatic has more filters and camera effects, it's just that Instagram grew faster because it had a social component. But Hipstamatic is still hanging on. And now, it's trying a new social networking tactic. Hipstamatic is launching a spin-off app called Oggl for iOS. And it's trying to market itself as a network that's more than the bathroom selfie, but rather, for more serious photographers that are passion about photo art. And just like before, users can still share their photos with other networks like Facebook, Twitter, Flicker, Foursquare, and even Instagram. Photo nerds can request an invitation at Oggl.com, it's free. But to get all the lens and film options, it requires a subscription of $1 a month or $10 for a year. That's your Tech News Update.
