Stand-alone Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered could go on sale next week

all of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, the remake of the 2007 classic that came bundled with last year’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, may be getting a stand-alone version. A call to Target puts the the current street date for the unannounced title at June 27.

The story began yesterday over on Charlie Intel. It received a tip in the form of pictures showing a shrink-wrapped version of Modern Warfare Remastered for PlayStation 4 as well as an image of a Target shelf tag listing the price as $39.99. Later that day, a reader sent in a picture of the Target computer system listing the game’s street date as June 20.

Polygon called several Targets in the Chicagoland area for more information. Several employees confirmed that they had a listing for a product that matched the SKU given to Charlie Intel. They could confirm that it was a video game, and that the street date was June 27. However, all other information on the product listing was redacted. One employee said this is common practice internally at Target for new titles entering the computer system prior to their street date.

Polygon has reached out to Activision for more information.

Last year’s Infinite Warfare didn’t achieve the kind of success at retail that Activision had hoped for. Fan reaction to the game, which took the series to outer space in the far future, was extremely negative when the first trailer was released on YouTube. Later, Activision admitted that the game “underperformed” and that the setting “just didn’t resonate” with players.

Modern Warfare Remastered has seen continued support from Activision, including new character models and new weapons.

The next Call of Duty title is called Call of Duty: WWII and will tell the story of the U.S. Army’s 1st Infantry Division. We had hands-on the game’s multiplayer mode at this year’s E3. The title is expected to be released on November 3 for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.

Still talk on the phone? You can make calls with this Viio Vezzo smart mirror

Image result for Still talk on the phone? You can make calls with this Viio Vezzo smart mirror

Need to call your friend while you put in your contacts? A company called Viio has created mirrors that let you chat through your mirror. Viio equips its mirrors with Bluetooth, so you can connect them wirelessly to your mobile device, tablet or computer. The built-in microphone and speakers let you make phone calls or play music directly through the mirrors. And if you’re just concerned with how you look, the Viio mirrors include LED lights around the perimeter.

The Viio mirrors come in three different models — the Vezzo, Vero and Vetta — that cost $395, $445 and $695, respectively. You can order the mirrors online and in a few Home Depot, Best Buy and Lowe’s stores in Canada. Home Depot and Lowe’s will begin to sell the mirrors in the US this spring. (The site doesn’t yet ship to the UK or Australia, but those prices range from £320 to £565, or AU$520 to AU$920.)

Smart mirrors might be the next hot category as tech companies begin to make health and beauty products. The company Simplehuman has its own line of smart mirrors that customize light settings based on selfies you save in the accompanying app. And an auto-sensing smart mirror called Juno has raised more than $425,000 during its Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, thanks to features like light settings just for reading, makeup or selfies.

Viio features

  • Auxiliary cord connection
  • Anti-fog button
  • 6-hour battery or permanent plug
  • Wood backing to mount on walls
  • Vezzo: 24×32 inches, $395
  • Vero: 30-inch diameter circular mirror, $445
  • Vetta: 24×64 inches, $695

Collection of Lights Based on a Bell Shaped Module

bouroullec-chaines-collection-3

French designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec present the Chains collection with Galerie Kreo, which showcases a continuation of forms that the brothers have been developing for many years.

Representing key aspects of their research, the lighting designs typify traits of modules, assembly and the relationship with the surrounding space. The work is composed of light chains made out of numerous links, which can be endlessly joined to form falling drapes of bells.

Chains collection is available in perfect white plaster, anodized aluminum in azure blue, pale green or blond gold; or in glossy red ceramic. When boasting these options, the lighting design’s bell shapes become considerable in the light, glittering all over their curved surfaces. The red ceramic version highlights the collection’s organic elements, as the work can hang harmoniously even without light.

Beach Villa on the Pacific Coast by Bernardi and Peschard Arquitectura

beach-villa-bernardi-peschard-arquitectura-23

How to turn the massive, innovative and contemporary home project into playful and romantic beach villa with delicate implications of traditional Pacific seaside architecture? The architects from Bernardi + Peschard arquitectura succeeded in this challenging task, creating one modern, elegant and comfortable home that has an open dialog with its magnificent surrounding and romantic hints in its current core.\

The magic of this charming home starts with the garden where the lush Mexican seaside vegetation is intersected by playful and characteristic pathway made of giant wood blocks that lead to the central volume of the house. This space is open, bigger than the rest of the architectural constructs and makes the connection between the different elements of the housing project. With its elevated pagoda-like roof the main living area makes a reference to other more Pacific Island like architectures, and connects the beauty of the privet beach with the tranquil and relaxing atmosphere of the house shelter.

Neil Robinson, advertising and sales director at Sealy, said: ‘while you can’t truely put a fee on being a deep sleeper, and waking up refreshed and revitalised, we’ve got attempted to accomplish that, and it is a whole lot inexpensive than many people will assume!

‘A bed is considered one of the bigger one-off household expenses that people face, and the initial charge can placed many clients off, who often decide to hold on to their current mattress a ways longer than it’s far appropriate – or secure – to accomplish that. this may bring about aches and pains, as the bed no longer helps the sleeper’s weight. however, we are hoping that with the aid of viewing this on a costin line with-sleep foundation in opposition to different purchases, that is placed into context.
