Backfirewall_ Preview – Inside Out Meets Technology

Read our Preview on Backfirewall_, the Latest Game from Publisher All in! Games Have you ever stopped to wonder what happens when your phone updates? Probably not. But imagine if it had sentient beings that existed to help your phone run, keeping it maintained and up to scratch. And ultimately, over time, their home would decay as your device ages, causing bugs to manifest and the aging hardware to become more and more obsolete. Well, Backfirewall_ takes that premise and runs with it. Developed by Naraven Games, Backfirewall_ sees you play as an Update Assistant inside a smartphone, who is tasked with helping the system be updated. However, things aren’t as simple as that. You, along with a rather comedic sentient Operating System called OS9, will be deleted upon the update of the syste...

What Is Quantum Dot Technology?

optimarc/Shutterstock.com Quantum dots are making waves in the world of TVs and monitors, but what are they exactly? Is this just another abuse of the word “quantum” by marketers, or are these dots as amazing as they’re made out to be? The Artificial Atom Quantum dots are particles of semiconductor material just a few nanometers across. Also known as “artificial atoms” (despite being much larger than an atom) these dots act in a similar way to atoms when it comes to their relationship with electrons. They are so small, that their electrons are “trapped” and behave similarly to atoms. When UV light hits a quantum dot, its electrons are raised to a higher energy state. When the electrons fall back to their base level the difference in energy between the two states is released as light. Th...
