New Cosmetic Reconstruction App

Tech Insiders Report A New Augmentation App For Smart Phones

cosmetic reconstruction phone appWe all have used snapchat and other filter driven applications but there appears to be something new on the market for consumers to eat up like birthday cake. Apparently a software company out of Oklahoma is developing a new app that allows users to take a selfie then apply filters that represent surgical procedures. This app might hit the market if it catches on. They are currently trying to find plastic surgeons in the Oklahoma area to buy into the app and offer it to their patients as means to “test drive” the surgical procedure. What this means is that anyone looking to get plastic surgery procedures like liposuction, rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, and botox can download this app to their smart phones and apply the filter on a selfie. So imagine that you were looking to get liposuction done around your waist area, you could snap a picture of your gut, apply the filter, and see what your post surgery stomach might look like. The same goes for nose jobs, boob jobs, and botox work.

How Technology Is Shaping Our Bodies

I love technology, if I didn’t I wouldn’t be writing about it. But with all the pros come many cons. It’s great that we can pick up a phone, snap a picture, apply a filter, and see what we might look like after cosmetic surgery. But what if we put down the phones and picked up some weights? Maybe we wouldn’t even need a new smart phone application like that if we were just getting exercise. I understand that this argument doesn’t necessarily apply to rhinoplasty or breast augmentation but it sure applies to liposuction!! It might be possible also if we weren’t so consumed with social media we wouldn’t be trying to modify our bodies to look like something else. Too much time looking at photos on instagram and facebook gives young people a false impression of reality. Well, such is life. If you are in need of cosmetic reconstructive surgery and want to see what it might look like before you go under the knife then this cool app is for you. Check it out and leave us some feedback in the comments section below and let us know how it worked for you.

Watch Conan O’Brien Train With Wonder Woman In This Silly Video

To promote the new movie Wonder Woman, comedian and late night TV host Conan O’Brien trained with the film’s star, Gal Gadot for a silly segment for his show.

Gadot trained for sixth months to prepare for her leading role Wonder Woman, but O’Brien wanted to get in shape much faster than that. You can probably imagine where this video goes… O’Brien asks Gadot at one point if he could be her love interest in a sequel, and with the magic of video editing, it looks like it’s going to happen (it is not going to happen).

Gadot served in the actual Israeli army, so O’Brien–who declares himself a Girl Scout in the video–really never stood a chance.

Early box office predictions suggest that Wonder Woman will have a solid opening weekend, with a take of at least $65 million in its first three days. While this is well below the openings for previous DC movies Suicide Squad ($133 million) and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($166 million), it is in line with the debut for such Marvel films as Captain America: The First Avenger ($65 million) and Ant-Man ($57.2 million).

In other news, a new poster for Wonder Woman has been released showing the character hoisting a tank over her head. For lots more on Wonder Woman, which opens on June 2, check out GameSpot’s roundup feature, “Everything We Know About The Wonder Woman Movie.”

Rainbow Six Siege Maintenance Coming Up, As “Operation Health” Update Detailed

Ubisoft is conducting a round of maintenance on the Rainbow Six Siege servers this week. Posting on its website, the company confirmed the maintenance period will follow this schedule:

  • PS4 — 9 AM – 10 AM ET
  • Xbox One — 10 AM – 11 AM ET
  • PC — 11 AM — 11:59 AM ET

During the maintenance period, Ubisoft will perform some kind of a “rank reset,” while the background art will change to reflect the start of the game’s Operation Health initiative.

The other big piece of news about Siege today that Ubisoft has provided a rundown of the items it hopes to address in the game’s next patch, 2.2.1 or if necessary, the one after that, 2.2.2. You can see a quick breakdown of each below, while Ubisoft will share further specifics about the changes and answer fan questions about them in the coming weeks.

There is no word yet on when 2.2.1 will launch on PC or Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Operation Health is the name for Ubisoft’s effort to improve the “overall Rainbow Six Siege experience.” Over the next few months, Ubisoft will roll out changes to this end, while some DLC has been canceled as a result of the new plan.

More than a year after launch, Siege reportedly still has a “thriving” playerbase.

Rainbow Six Siege 2.2.1 Priority List

Descriptions written by Ubisoft

One Step Matchmaking

  • We are focusing on the testing and implementation of One Step Matchmaking. We are currently testing this on the TTS.

Map Fixes

  • Our level design team will be taking a pass on all maps to correct various bugs/glitches.

Game Crashes

  • Our technical team will be reviewing the layers of code that are leading to game crashes. This will provide you with a more stable playing experience.

Hit Boxes

  • Currently being tested on the Technical Test Server, the hit box refactor is continuing to under-go further testing prior to being deployed to the live build of the game.

Spawn Killing

  • We have seen the community‚Äôs frustrations regarding spawn killing, and our level design teams will be taking steps to mitigate the locations where this is still possible. To be clear, spawn killing is when a Defender is able to kill you within seconds of spawning. Running towards the objective and dying for not using cover is not considered spawn killing.

Join in Progress

  • We do not intend for players to be placed into Ranked matches that are already in progress. We are also going to be working on the various bugs encountered by people when they join a match in progress in Casual.

Defuser issues (audio, planting, destroying)

  • Interaction with the Defuser is not always fluid and intuitive, and sometimes does not work as intended. We will be doing a pass on the Defuser as a whole to address these issues. The various Defuser issues will be worked on throughout the entirety of Operation Health.

Glaz

  • Glaz will be receiving some attention. Stay tuned for details!

Justice League Dark Movie Reportedly Loses Another Director

Doug Liman will no longer direct DC’s upcoming Justice League Dark film, according to a report.

Hollywood news site Variety says it has heard from sources that Liman, who directed The Bourne Identity and Edge of Tomorrow, exited the project due to scheduling conflicts. Liman is also directing the new movie Chaos Walking.

Insiders told Variety that Justice League Dark studio Warner Bros. is now holding meetings with directors to find someone to replace Liman. A new director could be signed “shortly.”

Speaking about his plans for Justice League Dark earlier this year, Liman said, “I have a really amazing take on it…,” going on to say his version of the movie would be anything but straightforward.

“I’m not going to do something campy either. I have a take on it that isn’t like anything else out there. At the end of the day, I make character-driven movies,” he said.

Justice League Dark comprises more supernatural members of the DC Universe, such as John Constantine, Madame Xanadu, Swamp Thing, and Deadman.

According to Variety’s report, Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy director Guillermo del Toro was at one time attached to direct the Justice League Dark movie before dropping out.

In other Justice League news, director Zack Snyder has left the Justice League film following the death of his daughter. Avengers director Joss Whedon is stepping in to finish the film.
