Rocket - A Rust game running on WASM
After seeing the examples on hellorust.com, I thought it would be interesting to try to adapt my game Rocket to work on the browser through the wasm32-unknown-unknown target. The project was a great way to figure out how far you can go when porting a project that is a bit more complex than a hello world. I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that most of the code could be reused. Particularly, the game logic code was barely touched at all.

Raspberry PiBoy – Building a Handheld Gaming System from Walnut and Carbon Fiber – MICHAEL K CASTOR
Portable Raspberry Pi enabled gaming system projects seem to be everywhere. The concept is relatively simple; get an old GameBoy (or other old portable) shell, stuff in a Raspberry Pi Zero as well as some switches, LiPo battery and charger, an LCD screen, and maybe an audio amplifier and you’re set (except for the giant mess of wires.)

Our Older Brother – Firefox Test Pilot – Medium
A new look for a new browser
Today is a huge day for Mozilla. We’re launching Firefox Quantum which is the fastest, best-looking, and generally most awesome browser we’ve ever released.

Until you ship significant amounts of code in Firefox, as our team did last month with Screenshots, it’s hard to get your head around exactly how detail-oriented, strategic, and precise you have to be to steer such a large, powerful ship. We couldn’t have shipped Screenshots without the gracious, patient support of many, many people on the Firefox core team. This is a huge day for these folks and we couldn’t be happier to celebrate all of the care, consideration, and hard work they’ve put in to make today possible.

We’re also excited because today marks the second time that a Test Pilot experiment has graduated into Firefox proper. In Firefox Quantum, Activity Stream will be the default homepage for Firefox! The Activity Stream team has done tremendous work overhauling one of the most visible features in Firefox. Activity Stream was one of the first experiments in Test Pilot, and we’re thrilled to see it become a core Firefox feature.

At Test Pilot, we wanted to celebrate in our own little way. The redesign of Firefox gave us a new logo, new style guide, and a lot of ideas about updating our look for the Quantum release. We took these cues and integrated them into Test Pilot, and today, the site has an all-new look to match the new Firefox UI. We think the new design will serve us well as we roll out some exciting new experiments and Test Pilot features over the next few months!

Our Older Brother was originally published in Firefox Test Pilot on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Nintendo Switch - Matt Gemmell
The main feature, of course — even the eponymous feature, if you like — is that it’s neither tethered to your TV, nor an exclusively squint-inducing handheld device. This is a fundamentally humane and grown-up move. I have a home office, but I don’t want a man cave or boy’s room or whatever you might call it. I’m married, and I like my wife. I prefer to be in the same room as her, even if we’re both doing different things and only periodically talking to each other (this is also one of the fab things about marriage). The Switch lets me shut off the TV but keep playing, without having to go to another room. I keep all my games stuff in the living room.

The underground story of Cobra, the 1980s’ illicit handmade computer | Ars Technica
Among the clones manufactured by the Communists was the Cobra or CoBra. The name stands for COmputere BRAsov, with Brasov being the town in central Romania where these machines were assembled to be used by enterprises. Of course, ordinary people couldn’t buy them—which is what first led several students at the Politehnica University of Bucharest deciding to build them themselves.
