Revisiting Microsoft’s Original Answer to Gran Turismo

Gran Turismo is near enough the greatest thing that ever happened to racing games. Let me firmly establish that right now. No-one had made a racing game quite like it before. It rocked the entire genre and its incredible girth cast a giant shadow that most other racing games in the tail-end of the original PlayStation era struggled to emerge from under. There was a long period of time where my copy of Gran Turismo was a permanent resident in my PlayStation. Its default location wasn’t in its box; it was in the console. Waiting.

I never actually played the original Forza Motorsport. At the time of its release I’d just begun working on Australia’s Official PlayStation Magazine and had been thrashing around with Gran Turismo 4 for six months. I was assured I’d dig Forza, which I suspected, but I didn’t really have room in my life for it.

Astronaut on His Way to Control an Earth-Based Robot from Space

Danish European Space Agency astronaut Andreas Mogensen is set to control an Earth-based robot from the International Space Station using a new haptic remote control.

Mogensen, commander Sergei Volkov and Aidyn Aimbetov are currently in transit to ISS after launching earlier today, September 2. Once there, Mogensen will control the arms of the Interact Centaur rover on September 7 from a 400 km orbit above Earth.

The force-feedback-based teleoperation will let Andreas feel what the robot is "feeling," allowing him to perform remote-controlled tasks in the sub-millimetre range.
