Of course we are excited to talk about some awesome new TV announcements for next fall, from X-Men: The Gifted and The Inhumans to the all new space comedy drama The Orville. Don’t forget you are all invited to Jason’s private server for Ark:Survival Evolved and remember to do us a huge favor and introduce the digitalSoup Podcast to everyone you think would enjoy a little ‘Soup in their life!

Shuttertime with Sid and Mac – If you are a photographer or are just interested in good photography conversation, Dave has been a guest on the most recent couple of episodes of this fantastic photography podcast so make sure and head over to Shuttertime and drop them a line to let say hi and let them know that digitalSoup sent you!

 

Microsoft Holographic Near-Eye Displays

Microsoft is developing holographic display glasses. Though under development, the potential uses for these are tremendous.  Actual Microsoft Research site.  (I’m not sure why ZDNET is calling it a potential smart-phone killer.  That doesn’t make sense to me. -Adam)

 

X-Men:  The Gifted debuts on Fox this fall!

Two ordinary parents take their family on the run from the government when they discover that their children have mutant abilities, and join an underground community of mutants who have to fight to survive

 

The Orville
When Star Trek meets Spaceballs you get The Orville. A brand new space comedy from Seth MacFarlane set to debut on Fox this Fall. Timely release to compete directly with the new Star Trek : Discovery TV series.

 

Raspberry Pi Linux Desktop

This kit turns the Raspberry Pi into a limited buy usable Linux desktop.

 

Alexa levels up with Dish Network:

Grabbing another new partner, Alexa gets an upgrade to integrate with Dish Network. Will they add the ability to watch your Dish TV over the new Echo Show? Plus they are adding echo to echo calling VOIP for free.

COOL GADGET OF THE WEEK
