Jawbreaker – Ultimate AI Upscaled 4k edition

I was at the gym and, as usual, I was watching downloaded films on the gym's TV while cycling or rowing. I decided to watch the documentary "Samsara" by Ron Fricke and was amazed to see that I had been to many of the locations featured in the film, and furthermore, I had lots of my own footage of those locations. This gave me the idea to create a travel documentary using my footage, along with other trips that have never been shared online, including my travels to Japan. So I checked the archives, and my heart fell. It's not 2008 anymore, and the 50i 24fps handycam footage barely works in the 4k 60fps world of 2024. Then, I came across AI upscaling software and I asked myself, "Using this incredible technology, could I "fix" the old footage?" and, "How would I use it to make a new film?" I needed [...]

Tokyo Marui Pro Goggle Review

After coming home from my travels I accessed my secure shipping container and got out all my airsoft gear. GZ is coming and I wanted to do a ops check and full clean so I would be ready. My old, fantastic, HFC mesh mask had seen better days. After considering the risk of using rusty mesh, I benched the mask and started hunting around for another solution. There was something else too. My team now play 24h milsim games. As I was going to join them, I needed a face rig that would enable me to eat and sleep in the field, but not be a compromise on safety.
