Meitu Inc., publisher of the world renowned photo-editing app Meitu, is dedicated to the pursuit of beauty around the world. For almost 10 years, Meitu has been an innovator of apps that generate 6 billion photos per month globally. Today, Meitu managed to expand its expertise to Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and created its first ever A.I. painting robot - Andy, the ArtBot.

What makes Andy so unique?

Unlike other photo-editing functions that add effects to original photos, Andy breaks up and reconstructs photos, then turns them into paintings within 5 seconds. Its segmentation technique is so humanized that it recognizes humans in photos and is able take them out from the backgrounds behind them, and turn into a brand new painting.

Undoubtedly, Andy marks the beginning of A.I. in the art industry. As Andy continues to learn, more painting styles created through A.I. will be developed. Andy may not be comparable to any of the great painters like Picasso, Van Gogh, etc., but it will certainly lead a different art trend for the future.

How Andy works?

If you still haven’t lost hope on Konami and Metal Gear after Kojima left for a better place, then chances are you’re currently waiting for Metal Gear Solid V with zombies. Apparently, Konami is planning for Metal Gear Survive to begin its beta phase January next year.
Konami recently announced that Metal Gear Survive beta will launch for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One from January 18, 2018 until January 21, 2018. That’s usually the duration for games in beta testing phases, so we’re not really complaining on this one.

Those who will be participating in the Metal Gear Survive beta can try out three missions together with four other players. If you want to participate, you’ll also get a couple of goodies such as Metal Gear REX Head accessory, a FOX HOUND Name Plate, and a Bandana.

Not really sure if Konami being all trippy with Metal Gear Survive means channeling in Kojima, but we’re still willing to give it a try.

Apparently, Microsoft is Offering a Subscription for Games on the Windows Store

7:18 PM
hexmojo-game-pass.png (640×420)

Subscription-based game services have been a thing now. Sure, it’s not yet available on Steam, but EA, of all publishers, have offered a very sweet catalogue of all-you-can-play games for a measly $5 a month. Apparently, Microsoft is also doing that thing on its Windows Store platform, and it’s called Game Pass.


Microsoft’s Game Pass is a subscription-based library that you can get for $10. Now, as opposed to EA’s Origin Access that’s already massive with AAA titles in it, Game Pass probably won’t compare at the moment. Plus it’s also target to Xbox One owners, but PC users can enjoy a couple of them if they’re on Xbox Play Anywhere, and if they’re on Game Pass, of course.

This would work very well if you have an Xbox One with you. But then again, if you have a PC, would you really shell out for a gaming console, especially an Xbox One?
