Hey, remember Panasonic's portable online gaming console, the Jungle? It's inching closer to retail, after an email was sent out today to US customers who'd registered interest, offering them a test-run. "We're doing something very different," Panasonic wrote. [Bloomberg]
This is Jungle. It's the first portable gaming console designed exclusively for online gaming and MMORPGs. And it's from the company who gave us the 3DO nearly 20 years ago.
Don't be surprised if you see the US Army sporting fine garments made from Madagascan bark spider's silk in the future. It's "10 times better than Kevlar," which itself is "5 times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis."
