This Magical Device Just Killed Action Cams

Read the review, enter the competition - https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/insta360-one-x/

Our verdict of the Insta360 One X: 10/10 - It's rare that I'm so impressed by a piece of technology, but there's just something magical about the Insta360 One X. Just don't buy one if your target output is VR: there's a new model that shoots in 180-degree stereoscopic format for that.

PuppyCube Turns Any Surface Into an Interactive Touch Screen

Our verdict of the PuppyCube Projector: 4/10 - The hardware is straight out of a sci-fi movie, and the touchscreen projection actually works. Unfortunately, with dodgy third party app stores and a host of compatibility issues, the OS is unusable at the moment.

How to Play Pokemon and Emulate Other Games on iPhone WITHOUT JAILBREAKING

Full article and. all links can be found at https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/play-pokemon-emulate-games-iphone-ipad/

There’s no denying that Pokemon GO has given Nintendo’s franchise a new lease of life, bringing new fans on board and rekindling a love many once had for the Game Boy smash hit first released in 1996. Luckily it’s not the only way you can play Pokemon on your iPhone.

Nintendo hasn’t released any classic or recent Pokemon games on the App Store, so you’ll have to turn to emulation to get the job done. With one exception, the easiest way to do this is to pay a small fee and install apps from a service called Build Store.

Best of all you don’t need to jailbreak your device to do this.

Tech geeks are typically found at a desk. In an office. Behind a cubicle. So when we got the chance to meet up in Berlin for IFA, we thought it might be a good idea to get together and try a bunch of the weirdest snacks from around the world. You know - to see what's out there. We literally bit off more than we could chew.

GEEKS TRY WEIRD US & KOREAN SNACKS: TWINKIES! SLIM JIM! DORITOS!

What's in a Slim Jim? Do Hostess Twinkies expire?

In this week's episode of Tech Geeks Try Stuff, Joel takes us on a journey of weird US snacks, starting with the unmistakeable Slim Jims. Is it a jerky? Is it beef? Who knows?! Then we feast on the cream-filled joy of Twinkies. Next up is Joel's favourite flavour of Doritos - Spicy Sweet Chilli (which was a winner - that's the best Doritos flavour we have ever tasted).

Then we moved on to Korean snacks, and boy was it a lovely surprise! From Lotte's Custard Cream Cakes to shrimp crackers and Janggu (honey dipped snacks), they were the tastiest Korean snacks we've had. What a treat!

TECH GEEKS TRY STUFF: SPICY INDIAN SNACKS NEARLY KILLED ANYA!

Right, this time the tech geeks braved the world of Indian snacks; some spicy, some not. The spicy one nearly killed Anya though.

These were quick Indian snacks that they would have at tea time, so Indian tea time snacks like wafers, sing bhajiya, chakli, and farsan (which is similar to Bombay Mix).

And they were delicious!

Tech geeks are typically found at a desk. In an office. Behind a cubicle. So when we got the chance to meet up in Berlin for IFA, we thought it might be a good idea to get together and try a bunch of the weirdest snacks from around the world. You know - to see what's out there. We literally bit off more than we could chew.

(Apologies for the video quality - we had to record at night, so lighting wasn't the best.)

TECH GEEKS TRY STUFF: AWESOME AUSSIE SNACKS & WEIRD MUSK STICKS WTH?

"IT TASTES LIKE MUSK!"

What exactly are musk sticks? Nevermind that, in this video, we'll tastes some of the finest and weirdest foods Australia has to offer. Some of them are actually pretty amazing (like Tim Tam and Kit Kat) - but we can't say the same for Vegemite.

TECH GEEKS TRY STUFF: Weird Canadian Snacks - SOAP FLAVOUR CHEWING GUM, SMOKED SALMON CANDY?!

It's true! We ate all that.

Again, Tina spoilt us with some really great snacks (see our weird German food video if you wanna know what I'm talking about https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeMOWPtTL80).

This time, we tried some weird Canadian snacks featuring ketchup chips from Lays and Old Dutch, all dressed Ruffles (which I still maintain are the last crisps they make at the end of the day to clean out the machines), what turned out to be cat food, but at least there was a saving grace: Jos Louis. Ah, lovely chocolate covered velvet cake.

Have you tried any of these weird Canadian snacks? Let us know in the comments.

TECH GEEKS TRY STUFF: 2X FIRE NOODLES (8,800 SCOVILLE!)

CAN YOU FEEL THE BURN of 8k SCOVILLE?

So we tried 2x korean fire noodles - and honestly, it wasn't a proper challenge because we split 2 packets among 5 of us (yeah we were in Berlin and fire noodles was in short supply). Still, 8,800 Scoville. Yeah. Also, we tried Jackson's potential cure for spiciness - you guessed it - chocolate. Did it work? Ask Joel.

TECH GEEKS TRY STUFF: Mouth Melting Sour Candy!

Can sour sweets melt your mouth? Apparently.

So we tried a bunch of sour candy to gauge how sour they really are. Turns out, not overly sour but your mouth will melt from eating too many of them. Then rated by our resident sour sweet expert, James Bruce.

TECH GEEKS TRY STUFF: Weird German Foods - Pickled fish for breakfast, blood spread with bits?

Four tech geeks brave some of the weirdest German foods.

Featuring rollmops (pickled herring) which nearly killed Jackson, liverwurst, blood sausages (they were actually just a paste, but yuck), Waldmeister (a green poisonous drink), and SUPER DICKMANN'S. Yeah, we definitely tasted some weird German foods.

If you're brave enough, these are certainly some of the weirdest German foods to try.
