‘Star Trek Online’ launches for free on consoles

Star Trek Online arrived on PC in the busy MMORPG scene in February 2010, just as the sun started to set on the genre. But the game followed industry trends to keep its playerbase, relaunching in January 2012 with a free-to-play tier and releasing semi-annual “season” expansions of new content at no cost. Today, it’s landing on PS4 and Xbox One, following other FTP titles in the move to consoles.

Whatever their genre, microtransaction-filled MMOs have been erratically arriving on home game systems for a few years. It took DC Universe Online three years from its launch on PS4 in 2013 to jump over to Xbox One last April, while the MOBA title Smite came to Microsoft’s system in August 2015 and then Sony’s this past May. And they keep coming, with the third-person MOBA Paragon arriving on PS4 last month. Despite Star Trek Online‘s troubled development process and hiccups along the way, it’s seeking new life and more players in a well-precedented move to consoles.

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.
