Refresh Yourself With These Star Trek: TNG Tiki Mugs

Thinkgeek has just released a new set of Tiki Glasses themed after characters from Star Trek: TNG: Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Geordi La Forge, Lt. Worf, a Cardassian, a Ferengi, and a Borg. If Star Trek isn’t your thing, tiki mugs from other franchises are available as well!

Allow us to raise a toast to your taste in housewares with these Star Trek The Next Generation Geeki Tikis. A set of six, these tiki mugs let you drink with Captain Picard, Geordi La Forge, Worf, a Cardassian, a Ferengi, and the Borg. Yes, all of the Borg since they’re a collective consciousness. Best not to play trivia against that one. These tiki mugs hold around 14 oz. each, and they’ll look great next to your Horga’hn fertility statue.

YouTube Battles Twitch With ‘Sponsorship’ Program

YouTube is to expand a program letting game streamers earn money directly from viewers. It comes across as a clear attempt to compete with the success of Twitch.

Though the Sponsorships program already existed in beta form, it was largely downplayed in favour of a separate scheme for paid access to view a channel. That’s now being dropped.

Instead Sponsorships will now be available to any gaming channel that has live streaming, at least a thousand subscribers, and an owner who is at least 18 years old.

Rather than paying to view videos, ‘sponsors’ will pay $4.99 for a variety of features including live chat access, unlimited commenting, custom emoji, access to buying digital goods, and other perks that are both Twitch-like and utterly baffling to people of my generation.

The sponsorship will run on top of existing advertising revenue for game streaming on YouTube, which is generally allowed.

It appears the long-term goal is to expand Sponsorships to non-gaming channels: YouTube says such channels can now apply to be part of an invite-only test program for the feature.

ROBOTICA 4k: When a Musician and Industrial Robotic Arms Team Up to Perform [Video]

An absolutely brilliant piece featuring musician Nigel John Stanford partnering up with a bunch of KUKA industrial robotic arms to perform ROBOTICA, of the the man’s latest song, part of his latest album, Automatica.

Here’s one of the man’s other pieces which I really like:

The New Trailer for Marvel’s The Punisher is Brutally Metal [Video]

After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.

Apart from being released in the near future (2017) on Netflix, we still do not know the exact release date yet!

Shoot First With this Star Wars “Solo” Rebel Alliance Purse

An absolutely gorgeous officially-licensed Star Wars Rebel Alliance purse by the folks from Thinkgeek:

Whatever the freight, move it Han Solo style with this Rebel Alliance purse. Made from supple faux leather in the colors of Han’s Empire Strikes Back outfit, it features a kisslock top closure, which is not only a nice and secure smuggler’s latch, but also, the name “kisslock” instantly reminds us of the budding romance between Han and Leia in that film. A luggage tag hangs from the strap, reading “Han Solo – captain – scoundrel – smuggler – nerf herder,” and there’s lots of places to hide your cargo inside, with one zippered pocket and two smaller pockets hiding in the interior. Carry it by the tote handles, or add the removable chain and faux leather shoulder strap for a secure crossbody carry that leaves your hands free to pilot the ship and make a quick escape.

The Rebooted “Tomb Raider” Movie Trailer is Here!

Update: Added the updated and high quality version below now!

Yeah, and at first glance (below,) it doesn’t seem too good. But that’s just my opinion. I think that while Alicia Vikander does look like the new Lara Croft from the rebooted video game series, she seems to lack the spirit of the character. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments section below!
