Watch favorite games finished quickly in the name of charity

It’s a long July holiday weekend, and that means something big for gamers: it’s the start of Summer Games Done Quick, the second of two annual livestreams for charity. As of 1PM Eastern on July 2nd, you’ll witness a slew of top players rushing through games for nearly a full week to raise donations for Doctors Without Borders. It starts with a one-handed (!) speedrun of the recent hit NieR: Automata, and wraps up the night of July 9th with a glitch-free blitz through the classic title Earthbound.

As always, there will be interesting twists throughout the week to keep things lively. There’s a mix of common speedrunning games and oddball examples (ever seen someone hurry through The Addams Family: Pugsley’s Scavenger Hunt?) as well as clever stunts. There are relay races through the Super Mario series and Tetris, for instance, as well as whole sections devoted to franchises like Sonic and Mirror’s Edge. And did we mention this is your first chance to watch The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in a GDQ stream? All told, there’s a good chance that you’ll have at least one reason to tune in and contribute.

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.
