So much for the Xbox One – Nvidia’s new GTX 750 Ti will make Titanfall very happy

The PC vs. console debate has been raging for about as long as gamers have had access to both (Stuff isn’t taking any sides, they’re both awesome) but Nvidia’s newest GPUs will be throwing some extra fuel onto the fire.

Apple reportedly showing interest in electric cars, medical kit

South Park: The Stick of Truth – First look (and fart jokes)

South Park: The Stick of Truth is the South Park game that everyone who has ever seen Kenny violently killed has been waiting for.

Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 Power Edition – There’s something in the air…

Stuff Magazine does not live on some isolated technology Utopia, surrounded by nothing by the latest and greatest in tech and the best takeaway delivery service ever created (more’s the pity). Stuff shares a communal area with a few other companies and it’s times like these that people are convinced that all we do all day is mess around with toys. Well, we do but that’s no all we...[Read More]

Bored? Why not play some air hockey with a 3D printer?

If you’re looking for something to do and, like the folks on the Stuff team, you have a little too much technology lying around then there are options available to you. Unconventional options. Take Jose Julio, who has converted a RepRap 3D printer into something that it really shouldn’t be capable of being – an air-hockey robot.
