Overwatch reveals Doomfist as its 25th hero


Blizzard’s hit team-based shooter, Overwatch, has revealed its latest character. And fans can relax; it’s Doomfist.

Doomfist has been teased since Overwatch’s reveal trailer, which had characters fighting over his gauntlet. Players even had to move that weapon as a map objective in Numbani (which also hosted a museum exhibit on the villain), and the introduction of the last new character, Orisa, explained that she was created after an assault from Doomfist took out her robot predecessors. This character has been a long time coming, and his introduction will keep Overwatch’s 30 million players on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC happy.

While past reveal trailers has introduced characters with computer-animated shorts or a series of 2D images with voice-overs, the Doomfist reveal is a gorgeous, 2D animation. You can watch it below.

Doomfist is an offensive character, meaning he specializes in dealing damage. While most Overwatch heroes focus on long-rang moves, Doomfist attacks with short-range abilities and melee strikes. His ultimate ability has him jumping into the air and crashing back down to the ground, dealing a large amount of damage to nearby enemies.

Doomfist is playable now on the game’s public test servers.

Microsoft’s Seeing AI app for the blind now reads handwriting

Artificial intelligence took center stage at Microsoft's AI Summit in San Francisco on Wednesday. Aside from announcing AI smarts for a range of software -- from Bing to Office 365 -- the tech titan is also ramping up its Seeing AI app for iOS, which uses computer vision to audibly help blind and visually impaired people to see the world around them. According to Microsoft, it's nabbed 100,000 downloads since its launch in the US earlier this year, which convinced the tech titan to bring it to 35 countries in total, including the EU.

It's also getting a bunch of new features. The app now boasts more currency recognition, adding British pounds, US dollars, Canadian dollars, and Euros to its tally. Going beyond the color in a scene, it can also spot the color of specific objects, like clothes. Plus, it's no longer restricted to just short printed text, with handwriting recognition now part of its skill set. You can also customize the voice that it uses to speak its observations out loud, and set how fast it talks.

Finally, a musical light detector alerts you to the light in an environment with an audible tone -- Microsoft claims the tool will save users from having to touch a hot bulb or LED battery to check if it's on. Despite the big update, there's still no word on an Android launch.
