They’ve been described as sonic attacks — bizarre, unexplained head injuries that spurred the United States to bring home diplomatic staff from China and Cuba. Now scientists are saying the ailments could have been caused by microwave weapons.

Jim Carrey Tapped As Villain in ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’; Here’s Everything We Know

Jim Carrey Tapped As Villain in 'Sonic the Hedgehog'; Here's Everything We Know

Update: Jim Carrey established himself as a unique and wacky comic presence in movies like Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and Dumb and Dumber. Yet he also tackled roles that turned toward the dark side, as in Batman Forever and The Cable Guy. Since then, he's continued to play both heroes and villains.

Now Carrey is ready to play the primary villain in Sonic the Hedgehog. He is in negotiations to star as Robotnik, aka Doctor Eggman, in the big-screen adaptation of the popular video game,…

Sonic’s Most Emo Hedgehog Gets His Own Episode in ‘Sonic Forces’

The Sonic series’ broodiest hedgehog is getting his own playable episode in the upcoming Sonic Forces.

It’s been awhile since we spent time with Shadow the Hedgehog outside of an ensemble piece like Sonic Colors or Sonic Generations. Shadow has typically been on the opposite side of the ring from Sonic, choosing to antagonize and minimally sympathize. But his angsty, kind of dark nature has earned him fan adoration as Sonic’s more emo counterpart.

In Sonic Forces,  Shadow will once again be squaring off against Sonic, having allied with the insidious Dr. Eggman after the world has been conquered. As a henchman of the Eggman Empire, we know little about what role exactly Shadow will play. Fans have called Shadow a “traitor” for choosing to side with Sonic’s longtime rival, with many speculating that he’s become outright evil in nature. 

However, Sega has shared that outside of encountering him in the main game, players will have another way to spend some one-on-one time with Shadow.

Shadow is playable in the Episode Shadow add-on content, a new episode where players can step into the shoes of this most mysterious of hedgehogs. This episode plays out much like a level with Sonic would play, a side-scrolling adventure collecting rings and slaying the enemies that crop up in your path. Shadow’s levels also include swaths of floating red blocks that move with an eerie fluidity, and hitting any of these blocks will cause Shadow to take heavy damage.

After some hands-on time with Shadow’s episode, it’s definitely a tad more challenging that your typical time with Sonic, and requires some real fancy footwork in how you time your platforming later on down the line. But it’s all worth it: the events shown in Episode Shadow will explain why the hedgehog decided to team up with Dr. Eggman in the first place, and delve a little deeper into his goals and motives for Sonic Forces.

Sonic Forces will be released on November 7 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.

I always had a good rhythm, but I never had a consistent rhythm. It’s making my swing a lot more consistent, not just with the driver but the whole game. It’s one rhythm for the whole game instead of having a quicker rhythm for irons or slower rhythm for the driver.” Vijay Singh, after winning the 2008 Deutsche Bank Championshi p Includes * One SX-1 Transmitter/Shaft Insert – the heart of the System-1, used to capture and transmit the data of your swing * One RX-1 Receiver/Synthesizer – used to convert the transmitter’s data into sound * Three Sonic Golf/Golf Pride Tour Velvet specialty grips – attach them to multiple clubs and easily transfer your System-1 * One Sony MDR-J10 stereo headphone system – these headphones are designed to be lightweight and secure, letting you focus on your swing. * One Sonic Golf screwdriver (for changing batteries) * One roll of Sonic Golf installation tape – for installation of your SX-1.

How it Works All great golf swings have great rhythm, tempo, and timing. These essential factors allow the best golfers to move in harmony with physics, unleash huge forces and generate soaring golf shots. But how do you know if you have proper rhythm? How do you improve tempo and timing? How do you know if you are building good habits or reinforcing bad ones? The answer is the Sonic Golf S1! For the first time, you can literally hear the rhythm, tempo and timing of your swing, in real-time, as you swing, and tune in to the most fundamental success factors of the golf swing. The Sonic Golf S1 is simple, straightforward, and amazingly effective. Good golf swings sound good and bad golf swings don’t! Hear “casting from the top”. Hear jerky transitions from backswing to downswing. Hear the release of the clubhead before, at or after the ball. And hear the sweet sound of a smooth, fluid, rhythmic golf swing. In real-time. Every time. No matter your playing level or understanding of the mechanics of the golf swing, the Sonic Golf S1, developed by Yale physicist Dr. Robert Grober and based on cutting-edge science and modern learning theory, will help you make immediate and lasting improvements in your golf swing. If you are serious about improving your golf swing, you need the Sonic Golf S1. Testimonials System-1 has helped me tremendously. I always had a good rhythm, but I never had a consistent rhythm. It’s making my swing a lot more consistent, not just with the driver but the whole game. It’s one rhythm for the whole game instead of having a quicker rhythm for irons or slower rhythm for the driver. Vijay Singh, after winning the 2008 Deutsche Bank Championship Sonic Golf’s audio biofeedback helped students make dramatic and lasting changes to their golf swings in the space of 20-30 minutes that I previously would not have thought possible. Bill Greenleaf, PGA Master Professional, The Dunes at Maui Lani, Maui Sonic Golf helps golfers make the transition from mechanics to golf swing. Jerry King, PGA Teaching Professional, Kapalua Golf Academy, Maui People are going to take a look at this technology and say, ‘Wow, why didn’t I think of this before?’ Dr. Robert Winters, Sports Psychologist, David Leadbetter Golf Academy As an engineer I can appreciate the effort that goes into making something very complex seem so “simple”. The audio biofeedback allowed me to “feel” a better swing and to identify and change swing mechanics that are not accessible via video. Gene Walsh, Founder and President, Walsh Engineers, La Jolla, CA Sonic Golf provided me a different way of understanding my swing. Being able to hear the transition at the top of the swing allowed me to control it. Charlotte Mayorkas, LPGA Futures Tour I took my son to the driving range last night and asked him if he could believe how much Sonic Golf helped to improve my swing. He replied ‘I can’t believe ANYTHING could have helped that much! Daniel Shepard, Founder, CTO & President, Contour Semiconductor, Salem, NH Sonic Golf is what has been missing in golf instruction – the ability to teach timing and tempo – which is the glue that holds the whole swing together.

Sonic Possible Worlds: Hearing the Continuum of Sound

Sonic Possible Worlds: Hearing the Continuum of Sound


Inspired by its use in literary theory, film criticism and the discourse of games design, Salome Voegelin’s dazzling new book adapts and develops possible world theory in relation to sound. David Lewis’ Possible World is juxtaposed with Merleau-Ponty’s life-world, to produce a meeting of the semantic and the phenomenological at the place of listening. The central tenet of this book is that at present traditional musical compositions and contemporary sonic output are approached and investigated through separate and distinct critical languages and histories. As a consequence, no continuous and comparative study of the field – as exists in literary studies for example – is possible. Voegelin proposes an analytical framework that can access and investigate works across genres and times, and study them within a comparative context. As the discipline of sound studies gains momentum, Sonic Possible Worlds fills a need for a discourse of sound to contextualize and debate emerging sonic practices.

Electronic Bird Repellent, new, programmable sonic

Electronic Bird Repellent, new, programmable sonic


Drive those pesky birds away from your patio, balcony, telephone poles or above your doors. This sonic repeller will create a “danger zone” to frighten birds away for good. By using birds’ own distress calls the birds perceive a danger in the area and become agitated and disoriented. The birds will believe that their flock mates are in trouble fleeing quickly. This programmable species specific repeller has significantly reduced or completely eliminated bird infestations in extensive field tests. There are eight bird sounds for you to choose from to target the specific birds that are invading your space. Some of the eight callings are predator calls to give the birds even more of a sense of danger. In addition to programming the bird sound, you can program the volume, time off periods and whether the bird sounds play in random or sequential order. Mixing it up will make it impossible for the birds to get used to any one pattern. This bird repeller works for most birds smaller than a crow and does no harm to any bird; it only uses loud, startling sounds to get them out of your way. Requires standard 110vAC electricity (adapter included). BirdXPeller is made of sturdy plastic with powerful directional speaker and convenient controls. This device covers up to an acre at full volume, in a long oval dispersion pattern. It weighs 3 pounds.
