Is E3 2017 opening to the public a good idea? GamesBeat Decides

Where we're going, we don't need exclusive industry-only gaming shows.


Listen to the GamesBeat Decides podcast

You can go to the Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show if you want, and you don’t even have to start your own zine to get a credential.

E3 is opening its doors to the public. The show will sell 15,000 tickets to non-industry people who want to attend when the event returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center this June. But is this a smart idea? Will this ensure the future of E3 for the Entertainment Software Association? Will gamers have a good time? Well, that’s just one of the topics we talk about on this week’s episode of the GamesBeat Decides podcast.

You can watch our segment about E3 in the video at the top of this story. If you have thoughts of your own, email us at games+podcast@venturebeat.com. Otherwise, catch the entire GamesBeat Decides episode below.

Kevlar cartilage could help you recover from joint injuries

It can be difficult to fully recover from knee injuries or other damage to your joints, if just because there hasn't been an artificial replacement for cartilage that can withstand as much punishment as the real thing. That may not be an issue in the long run, though: scientists have developed a Kevlar-based hydrogel that behaves like natural cartilage. It mixes a network of Kevlar nanofibers with polyvinyl alcohol to absorb water at rest (like real cartilage does in idle moments) and become extremely resistant to abuse, but releases it under stress -- say, a workout at the gym.

You don't even need a lot of it to replicate a human body's sturdiness and overall functionality. A material with 92 percent water is about as tough as real cartilage, while a 70 percent mix is comparable to rubber. Previous attempts at simulating cartilage couldn't hold enough water to transport nutrients to cells, which made them a poor fit for implants.

There's a long way to go before the material becomes useful. Researchers are hoping to patent the substance and find companies to make it a practical reality. The implications are already quite clear, mind you. If it works as well in patients as it does in lab experiments, it could lead to cartilage implants that are roughly as good as the real tissue they replace. A serious knee injury might not put an end to your running days.
