Quantum Stealth- the Future of Camouflage

Manufacturer Hyperstealth Biotechnology claims to have created something they call ‘Quantum Stealth’ material that is paper thin and bends light waves so objects behind it can nearly vanish. The only things you can see are either objects extremely close to the thin material, or anything far away like a background. This technology has been designed for use in war zones. According to Snell’s Law, every material has a specific index. The light is the quantity of the speed of light. The company says that it can be used in any condition, even at night, and does not require any power source. The Quantum Stealth is also said to bend ultraviolet and infrared as well, making it so it is not visible with night-vision tools, and making the ultimate stealth technology. This tech was started in 2010 by Guy Cramer, CEO of the Hyperstealth Biotechnology company, and the patents are only…

Clash Of Clans: NEW TOWN HALL?

On November 5th, 2019, the official Clash of Clans Youtube channel came out with a video that many have been awaiting to see in their subscription box for a long time. The trailer, simplified, is a goofy announcement in Clash of Clans’ signature style for the new up and coming town hall level thirteen. The trailer depicts various attacks and “hidden” symbolism that finds wacky ways to display the number thirteen, but of course this symbolism is quite obvious so that the average viewer knows that town hall thirteen is coming without having to analyze the trailer frame by frame. The trailer also reveals that there will be a new hero coming out, although this can also be deduced without having to think too hard either. What this article will do for you is not state the obvious, but break down the video in extreme depth, as well as giving…


Twenty Million Trees

As you may have heard, a popular youtuber named MrBeast has started a project, partnering with Teamtrees and 600 other YouTubers; he plans to plant 20 million trees by the first of 2020. This may seem like an unachievable goal, but it has only been a few days and he has already raised more than 10 Million dollars for the Earth! This means that he has a very good chance at actually achieving his goal soon.   He has partnered with some big names from the youtube community such as Pewdiepie, Jacksepticeye, Mark Rober, Marshmello, and so many more YouTubers that have agreed to this daring task.    Their plan is to partner with teamtrees, a charity that apparently plants a tree for every dollar donated to their charity.  This goal seems achievable, because MrBeast has more than 20 million subscribers currently, meaning that if every single one of his…

An Amazing Hidden Game: Slime Rancher!

You may have never heard of this game before, but I can assure you that it is one of the most underrated games ever. In Slime Rancher you play as Beatrix LeBeau, a young woman who was shipped to the far, far, away range in a small pod by the 7zee cooperation. When you wake up you get a game tutorial, and then the fun begins.  I have played over almost the whole game, and the only reason I haven’t completed everything is because the developers are constantly updating the game!  I was looking for a game that contained battles and cuteness at the same time, and then I found Slime Rancher. Slime Rancher is a game for people who enjoy adorable farming simulators, and also brutally murdering their enemies. Wait… Did I forget to mention how amazing the graphics are? Slime Rancher’s graphics are smooth and the lighting really…


Minecraft Comes Back to Dethrone Fortnite

About 10 years ago, the worldwide renowned game, Minecraft, was released by Mojang, on May 17, 2009. The game was such a hit because of all the creativity that Microsoft bought Mojang for 2.5 billion dollars in 2014. However, Minecraft started losing players and Youtubers in 2017. That year, a game called Fortnite, a battle royale game was released. The battle royale was a very creative game, unlike anything else seen before. The game attracted so many players because of how unique it was. In Fortnite, you could build walls, ramps, floors, pyramids, etc. This was the first battle royale game with a building feature. The game was more kid-friendly, excluding blood from the game. Fortnite was also free, which cut out the price factor and decision making for the parents spending money on the game. The game continued to be an extremely successful game.  Starting in 2019, Fortnite also…


Huawei: Big Controversy or Small Hoax?

Recently the phone company Huawei has been under fire for relations with the Chinese government. Huawei created software for their phones that are to be sold all over the world, but they have a very strong link with the Chinese government. The US government reacted very strongly to this, saying that they do not want the Chinese government spying on US citizens using their phones. The software that they were making was actually a brand-new Operating System. You may know how Apple phones have iOS, and Samsung phones use Android, along with many other phones. Huawei wanted to make their own OS so that they could compete more with iOS and Android. So far this case has gone very far in that Google has cut off future updates for Huawei phones using the Android OS. Huawei has responded by denying any ties with China. USA president Donald Trump has banned…


Mercedes and the Future of Self-Driving Cars

Uber is buying over 10,000 self driving Uber cars from Mercedes. This would help prevent car accidents made by humans because the robots are more accurate. “In fact, we turned out to be great partners,” Uber founder Travis Kalanick told The Verge. “By opening up the Uber platform to Daimler, we can get to the future faster than going it alone. It’s a future in which our cities and roads will be safer, cleaner and more accessible, and we couldn’t be more excited about what’s next.”   The car has a luxury interior with the following: a wooden floor, a TV screen, lots of LED lights, and comfy seating. The car has a sensor that detects anything in front of it that is within a certain distance of the car. The car is great for people who do not trust humans driving. Personally, I think the car is amazing. Here is…

Un-Reality

Un-Reality   It’s a little known fact that the tech department here at FCS recently bought Virtual Reality systems for the school. They have 10 Lenovo Daydreams, around 15 Google Cardboards and one Vive headset. The Google Cardboard can connect to your smartphone. The Daydreams are a smaller system that has all of the tech inside. The Vive, on the other hand, connects to a computer and has a much wider variety of things to do.   It all started when I (Noah) lost my chromebook the other day, so I decided to do the only thing I could; Go to tech. The door was locked and the lights were off, and there was nobody there. I was about to leave when I glimpsed a familiar shape in the window; a Vive headset! Wanting to know more, I grabbed my friend Theo and set off to find somebody to interview….


Retro doesn’t mean bad – why you should play old games.

   A common mindset about old games is that they are “outdated” or antiquated. This is rarely true. Many old games shaped the gaming industry into what we know it as today and invented technology even used outside of video games. Any time you see a 3-Dimensional graphic on a screen, that only exists because of the invention of 3D graphics. BSP is a method of 3D rendering made by Id Software and is used to render almost any 3D environment digitally. This technology was first seen in DOOM, a very, VERY famous game by Id Software. Old games are unique, in the 1990’s video games were still new and game developers were figuring out what they wanted to do. Game developers would improvise and experiment. This resulted in very interesting gameplay and themes, and amazing stories. Today, game developers want to make something unique, the problem is that almost everything…
