RIOT - Official Trailer (2013)

As the economical crisis advances, the discontent of an entire population cannot help but outburst in Riots, where the sounds of many voices get heard at once. The Director Leonard Menchiari has been experiencing this form of protest in person, and the game “RIOT” was born as a way to express it and to tell the stories of these fights. What is that triggers such a strife? What does a cop feel during the conflict? In “Riot”, the player will experience both sides of a fight in which there is no such thing as “victory” or “defeat”.

Transcendence footage turns Johnny Depp into a God

"Transcendence may seem like your typical "scientist creates artificial intelligence, scientist dies, scientist is loaded into AI device and goes rogue" movie. But this new featurette is showing a whole slew of insanity. Does Johnny Depp become a living god? Check it out.

This new look at Wally Pfister’s film raises more questions than answered them. Does Johnny Depp’s character find the power to flay skin from human flesh? Are we all just inside his brain? Does he have rogue infected soldiers, like in the final Matrix movie? We need answers! Either way, this looks like a much more of a straight-up action movie than we ever anticipated. Fingers crossed for this one.”

Tiltor incentivizes riot control from within through social media

"This is all going to sound a bit cyberpunk dystopia, but there’s now a social media company that allows businesses—and potentially law enforcement services—to incentivize crowd control during riots. 

Tiltor is designed to “break up riots from within,” by rewarding those who discourage violent behaviour from inside the crowd itself. 

Businesses or police can hire Tiltor to send a message to all the smartphones in a designated area, offering a reward to anyone who attempts to disperse the crowd from within. If the riot ends soon after, everyone who signed up to Tiltor gets a share of the total reward money.”

If George Orwell and Laurie Lee were to return from the Spanish civil war today, they would be arrested under section five of the Terrorism Act 2006. If convicted of fighting abroad with a “political, ideological, religious or racial motive” – a charge they would find hard to contest – they would face a maximum sentence of life in prison.
