📺 Netflix Offers Free Content To Viewers

🕹️ Mod Friendly Arcade Stick For Switch Released

Gaming hardware company 8BitDo are releasing an arcade stick for the Nintendo Switch and we are obsessed! It’s Bluetooth and WiFi enabled and compatible with PC as well. The unit uses LED lighting to mark the buttons, which change between Switch and PC mode, and the arcade joystick itself is interchangeable for maximum flexibility.

Get your game on.

🍿 Disney+ Watch Party?

Watch party apps and extensions have been a great way for friends to connect over lockdown, hosting virtual sleepovers and movie nights. But one eagle-eyed techno-wizard noticed some source code on the Disney+ website which suggests a group watch feature may soon be introduced by the streaming service. All hail the code legends for bringing this one to our attention!

See for yourself!

✈️ DIY Aircraft Takes Flight

When Amol Yadav told his friends that he wanted to build his very own aircraft, they were sceptical to say the least. But after years of struggle the plane, which was built on the rooftop of Yadav’s apartment block (a space smaller than a tennis court!), has finally been able to take to the skies.

Watch it happen.

🎵 Apple Reintroduces Music Quiz

In a modern twist, you can even share your scores to social media! iOS 14 is slated for release before the end of 2020.
