Now there's a new thing you can add to the list of Cools Things Minecraft Is Used For: designing sets for movies. The English director of Kill List and High Rise tweeted two images today showing the Minecraft build he used to plot out the film's grimy warehouse setti

Grand Theft Auto 5 Being Used To Train Driverless Cars

Those who have played Grand Theft Auto 5 know how frustrating the AI traffic jams can be in and around Los Santos. Davide Bacchet of startup Nio recently connected with Bloomberg, where he explained why the company is using Grand Theft Auto 5 to help train the company’s driverless cars. That may be enough time for the company to not only use Grand Theft Auto 5 for research, but possibly Grand Theft Auto 6, assuming it will release sometime in the next three years.
