It's Monday, and we're off to the races. Lots of good stuff today, including NASA's wacky plan to snatch a boulder off an asteroid and put it into orbit around the moon. If you're wondering why NASA would do such a thing, we felt the same way, until we discovered it was for an asteroid defense mission (which might have confused us more). There's some good reasoning behind the whole project, though, and well worth looking into.
We're also checking out a brilliant remaster of the Super Mario 64 level Bob-omb Battlefield, from a developer tinkering around with Unity 5. You can play his demo in-browser, which is very cool, and the Unity 5 project file is available for anyone else looking to take a peek at his code. Oh, and then there's the fire extinguisher that puts out fires with sound. You won't be able to load your favorite EDM track into this thing to battle flames, though. Sorry about that.
