As the Pokemon Go frenzy continues, children in civil war torn Syria are asking the world to consider their plight when hunting for Pikachu, Zubats and Charmanders.

As reported by The Guardian and U.S. Uncut, refugee advocate Taim Shami had initiated this campaign in hopes of garnering a sliver of the attention being lavished upon Pokemon Go.The pictures were distributed on Twitter by the Revolutionary Forces of Syria Media Office.

The powerful photos of Syrian child refugees holding images of popular Pokemon characters raises the obvious question, “What about me?”

Radinn’s second-gen electric wakeboard is faster and cheaper

Nearly three years after we first saw Radinn's prototype electric wakeboard, the Swedish outfit is back with a redesigned version. The G2X will be on display at the Boot Düsseldorf show this week, showing off its capabilities like a swappable battery so owners don't have to wait for a two-hour charge between 25-minute rides. Those rides will be even more exciting though, since it's capable of 36 mph, up from 28 on the Wakejet Cruise. Better yet, the G2X is cheaper than its predecessor, with a price (before accessories like an add-on foil, "radical" upgrade to max out its top speed or additional battery packs) of 9,900 euros, or about $12,101 US.

It's going on sale later this year, however, there will be plenty of competition. E-Surfer Magazine lists 17 different models in the segment, and there will be new hardware shown at the Boot show from Lampuga and Elektrisches Jet Surfboard.
