The GateKeeper 2.0 Wireless (Bluetooth) PC security device is an extremely useful little tool for anyone using a computer in a public place, such as an office, as it’s main functionality is that when you walk away from your PC, you’re taking access to the PC with you!

The GateKeeper comes in two parts, a little key chain and a tiny USB device, with Bluetooth 4 as the wireless solution. In the software, you can choose the range that has to be between these two parts for the computer to lock down. When you return to the computer, depending on your preferences in the software, it can automatically log you back in, or it can ask for another authentication step before you can touch your precious and private data. There is also a free app for both iOS and Android devices, that when paired with your keychain, can be used to make the keychain emit a beeping noise to locate your lost keys / chain (or whatever you have connected your device to).

Priced at $50 USD on their website, the GateKeeper uses “military grade security” to protect your PC. There is also an Enterprise Starter Pack at $249.99, which includes 5 devices and a 3 month subscription to their enterprise solution, including all support and assistance from their engineering team to help you set it all up for your needs.

How, exactly, does one deliver the moon? I’m sure KeokeN will show us, in time!

Saving humanity has been the plot of many games and movies in the past, but how is one astronaut expected to deliver the resources of the moon in order to complete this mission? The idea is: in the near future the human race has all but exhausted the Earth’s resources and, in an effort to save themselves have focused attention on the moon to save their way of life, yet the ruling nations cannot decide upon a solution. This is where you come in, going against political decision, you are launched into orbit around the moon with the mission of finding a way to begin sending precious resources home.

The easiest way to describe Deliver Us The Moon, by KeokeN Interactive, is as a puzzle, survival and exploration game with an underlying mission of epic proportions. Of course, since you are traversing the moon and various abandoned facilities, you are likely to find clues as to how to complete your mission and information regarding the goals and hidden agendas of the ruling nations, but can we expect any less from humanity? How do we actually deliver the moon? Only time will tell.

Pick up where politics failed. Deliver Us The Moon!

Pick up where politics failed. Deliver us the moon!

So far I’m impressed with what I have seen; even at this early stage the game plays without huge loading times, the movement is smooth and animation is fluid. The robot companion (ASE) does tend to clip through some objects but we can’t expect perfection. After all, the Kickstarter is still running with over 20 days to go and already more than 60% funded (as of February 12th 2016). This, in itself, speaks wonders for the popularity of the project, I see huge potential and look forward to seeing where they take it as development progresses.

My only issue during play so far is if you spend too long exploring, in the first area that lacks oxygen, there is no way to refill before the next area, so if you have very little oxygen left (2 seconds worth as I did) then you will die before refilling and, since there is not yet any facility to save or checkpoints, pressing escape will close the game after death. Of course this is something that will be fixed in time.

On the whole Deliver Us The Moon is already very playable and, as a taster for what is to come, builds the atmosphere and urgency of the mission brilliantly. I will be patiently awaiting future builds.

I’ve been writing for Dave for a few years now and I love it, there is always something new to research and test! I hope you enjoy my work!

Before writing I worked in IT for around 11 years and have been an avid gamer for much, much longer. I tend to enjoy everything except sports games, but I’m not above testing them if they’ve tried something new. Give me a Space 4x any day of the week!

There are few products in gaming as Iconic as Mad Catz’ R.A.T. series. Since the Original R.A.T.7 was launched 5 years ago to critical acclaim, we’ve unleashed multiple design variants onto the market, each designed with the ‘core’ gamer in mind.

With the RAT PRO Series, we’ve raised this bar much, much higher – unleashing Mad Catz next generation of gaming mice. Lead by the R.A.T. PRO X – the most advanced gaming mouse in the world, and the R.A.T. PRO S – a tournament grade gaming mouse designed for competitive gamers. But for some, the RAT PRO Series maybe too ‘serious’ a gaming mouse to be used every day, or may be outside of their budget.

With that in mind, we proudly introduce the R.A.T.1 – a high-performance gaming mouse made for everyday that features a gaming-grade 3500dpi Pixart PMW 3320 optical sensor and an undeniable style that is uniquely Mad Catz. A groundbreaking new concept in what a PC Gaming Mouse could be – the R.A.T.1 features an innovative modular design, 3D printing and personalization options that you can truly make it your own.

We haven’t compromised our ideals in any way. The R.A.T.1 skeletal Tripod Chassis is detachable, so it’s possible to remove the ‘brain’ Sensor Module, making it perfect as a reduced size travel mouse.

There’s more though – you can change your Palm Rest – not with one we are selling, but with your own design. Download the 3D CAD Modelling Data for our palm rest socket so you can design and produce your very own with a 3D printer – easily accessible at your local design store. How cool is that. And we’ve future-proofed it – with plans to bring out new chassis color options, new Sensor Modules and new 3D Printable files.
