Ultra-Light Start – Honda S2000, Steam removals, and a 3D hologram


Honda are supposedly bringing back the S2000, with a successor in development

Honda S2000If you’ve been after a new Honda roadster then there may be some good news headed your way. The company is said to be resurrecting their S2000 two-seater, based on an apparent visit by Honda reps to an S2000 owner’s meeting in the UK. It’s mostly speculation at the moment but there’s talk of Honda bringing out a third-gen S2000 with a 1.5 and a Type-R 2.0 litre engine, which would conform to past editions in terms of positioning and driving wheels. In Honda’s sights is Mazda’s MX-5, though Honda would be overpowering its vehicles in order to compete. Not that we’d complain. Honda don’t have any immediate release plans, sadly, so a new S2000 might take a while to arrive. That’s assuming reports are on the nose, of course.

You can now remove that ill-considered Steam purchase from your account for good

Square_Steam_LogoWe’ve all been there. Steam is having a sale and there are all these games available for a fraction of their usual cost so you buy something. Something that you look at in a month’s time with sorrow and disgust because you have no idea what you were thinking. And now it haunts you every time you load into Steam because you didn’t download it and you’re never going to play it. What’s a gamer to do? Well, you can now delete, for good, those shameful games, according to a post over at NeoGAF. You don’t get anything from it, other than having the offending title gone from your Steam library but it’s a step in the right direction. There are games we all want to forget.

Korean scientists have created a true, 3D hologram

We’ve been inundated with holograms of late, with long-dead performers being resurrected to trot around on stage as though they’d never left. It’s not much of an afterlife but it pays the bills, we guess. But those holograms are mere stage effects, a two-dimensional creation that is rendered invisible if you’re looking at it from the correct direction. Korean researchers, on the other hand, have built a very real 3D hologram, which you can see briefly in the video above (check the website if you’re in your inbox now). They need to up the refresh rate some but it’s there. An actual, three-dimensional hologram, of a Rubik’s Cube. It’s quite small, measuring only about 7.5cm, but can be inspected from all sides. The detailed effect is created using lasers, because of course it is, and this counts as a starting point from which we will get 3D advertisements from podiums in shopping malls. Because we’ve been expecting that for some time.
