Immerse Yourself in the Deep Web to Investigate Cyber Crime in GoldGun for iOS
What the apple v it's podcast. Hello. My name is Thomas. Tom bill. I also go by the name of anonymous and welcome to this podcast. I am going to introduce you and demonstrate a game called gold gun. That is one word. Gold gun is a free app. It is a free game. They've just recently released. Gold gun episode number one. Now, there are more episode that will be following up to this game is self. The first episode is going to be free. And the other episode are going to be a paid game that you will have to purchase it has an audio game that we wires a headphone to play you will be performing various gestures and maneuvers throughout the game is quite challenging actually in. It's very interesting game. But nonetheless, I think you'd be very interested in this. If you are audio game user yourself. So now, there's not a lot of structures were help in this game. So that is why I like to do this podcast. Not only for you to get a feel what you can expect in go gun. But I also want to give you an idea how to play the game itself when you launch gold gone. You have the option to turn off voice over or not it's going to say turn the phone charging port to the left, which is fine. But when I found out that you really need to know it is a table top mode. Another word if you put your phone on table yet understand that a flat like a tabletop. So you're not or you don't have the screen facing towards you. It is facing tours up the bottom side the phone, obviously is pointing down. But in this game. You wanna hold it in front of you? So I have two fingers from my left hand and two fingers for my right hand, and they hold their size accordingly. So the right fingers home to call. Owners and my left fingers all holding the two corners on the left side. Now during the gameplay, you may have to double tapped to Nishi eight adjuster or a may say to a move you device towards the left or right or Ford a backwards. And that's what I'm going to tell you. You are going to tilt the foam towards to you. Right. So the screen is going to go going to be facing to the right. And as you go to the left the scream were going to be facing to the left. If you're going forward the screen is going to face towards away from you. And then back is the screen is facing to the to you when you get into the main menu. There's a set of buttons that will be available. Remember, and this type of game we call this unity based game, which means that the typical voiceover gestures may not be what you think's another word if you're on the main menu swiping left and. Oh, right. Isn't going to work. You will need to swipe up and down so swiping up and down. We'll go to the various millions. As you see in this demonstration. There is a mini game is fantastic is very challenging. And my understanding for each episode. The mini games will get harder and more challenging which I'm really looking forward to. I think that they are definitely going to try to suck you into the episode one. So you can purchase the other episode become an obvious. This is a story about a police officer dealing with cybercrimes, and this is going to be a storytelling game that will continue through all the episodes. So once you have accomplish episode one you'll have to wait for episode two to continue the story each episode will be released every two to three months, and you can keep checking on apple this for those games releases. All right without further ado. Let's go ahead and make sure you got your headphones on if you're listening to this and headphones put them on. I'm going to do a little demonstration and making sure that you hear left right is working for you. So let's do the demonstration. And from there, you should be able to hear the left, right? Let bright, and if you got that working we are ready to go. I'll just go to the gold gun epithelial goal gone. And watching here you do as always one finger to open up. I'm going to turn off voice over as I double tap on. Kgo gun and to turn that off. Okay. You don't have to. But I recommend you that you do that. All right. Let's go to go gun is self and open it up. Gorgon landscape charge port in the left voice over off. Okay. Everything's soon. Game thought double tap to select. Okay. So we're here as you can hear the new game is the first option on the list. So if you swipe down how to play cloudy how play tattoo select continue. Double tap to select. They continue button is four. If you have a previous game going you can continue access Minna game. But. Double tap to select showing about the mini game. Is there? We'll be playing that as a demonstration wipe down setting. Double tap to select. Last. We have settings now settings. The only thing is in. There are the scene. So an episode one. There are a handful of scenes, you can skip all the different scenes. You wanna redo one skiing or go back seen from whatever have not as always unlocked. It's not something you have to unlock. So that's interesting. I haven't seen before. And that is a nice feature do that all of it back up to the new game settings how to play new game button. Double tap to select. Start the game. We're going to get one finger kept here. And we'll see what the game is like. Here we go. So it's pretty easy to come here. But them to be one of us. And then squeal out the bigs that no, I don't think so. You did. All right action time get now use double tap to do that. You got tone. Don't care. And you get a haptic feel in to when you have to maneuver. Let's grab this guy behind you. It's not too difficult. Just tilt right or left haptic green towards the right using his shield. Just double to have to do that. I would take this guy. The enemy is on the right tilt right to turn and double tap to shoot right and shot. The fellow men that was really fast Yemi is on the left tilt left to turn and double tap to shoot. And. Fascist man in the west. Just listen for the footsteps. Torture direction. Dot com. Okay. There's too many of them time to get outta here. Good now to toss things forward. Just double tap. So get rid of him and rush backwards won't tilt your device backwards. That's all you need to do spring towards you the door is right behind you. Again. Okay. Now, let's run. Now. Go forward the word screen away. I've had tighter spots. Ten. I got killed off of that faster next time. So you don't die. I've had tighter spots. You have to redo the scene. So now. Did it right? Okay. The door should be coming up on your list. It's. Okay. Grab the door. Like, you grab the thug. Just double tap to do that. Oh my goodness. The doors closed by themselves. So don't worry about them. On the back wall. Yeah. I remember pretty cool. Hurry. Grab the ladder. Regulator just double tap to do that. I hear the beep again. Matters and stares and such move up and down like you normally move forward backward. Forward backwards forward backwards forward backwards. Climbing on tight spot. Get into the Evan. Get into the oven. Guys, got to be crazy. It moving go. We're shooting in tight spots like this one you can only move forward and backwards. And when there is an intersection on board. Got some more company. Must be here. Must be should know. Sure. Heading me. I'm gonna do to finger double tap on the screen. That pause the game. And that from here, we can go back to the main menu back here. And then we'll swipe down how to play continue access Minna game button. Double tap to select. Now, we can go to mini game. If you want here. Now, you got the idea how the go gun. Episode work. I know I didn't give a whole lot. But you should be able to get the idea from the techniques and the tip and fights to give you the game. Now, the mini game is like a table top game as well. If you put your palm out out in front of you with your palm facing down that is what you're looking at. You're looking at this table and this game you weren't going to try to unlock a safe no way. You can do this is to find the combination. Putt. You have to tilt the phone left, right Ford and backwards, and it's all direction. So I'm talking like if you wanna go to the right Ford or left Ford, so we're dealing with. If you looking at navigational, we're looking at northeast southwest, right? For your also have to tilt your phone like northeast southeast southwest and northwest as well as you play this game and the closer you get to the tone L start to feel this after going on really going crazy. Eighty and that's when you get close, and you don't have any idea where could be it could be to the northwest. Maybe tilted maybe thirty degrees. Not like a forty five degrees angle. So that precise and that difficult. So let's go ahead and see what the sounds like for you still double tap here game, you need to device in different directions. You have to hold your device in the right position to enter the code. Keep listening to being. So if babes the closer you other the number we need you here long single, babe. The red spot. Okay, aloun. I'm saving information. I feel it. I'm gonna go forward. Nothing over there. Tilted to the northwest. West. Southwest. Wait a minute. It's getting faster so somewhere almost like south south-southwest, go back a little bit thirty degrees going faster. Where is it? This is not as easy as you think it is. I'm moving my phone around and by listening issue as much, but I know. It's worth when almost have to level of that. Oh, I'm so close. Mom, you may have to give it a few seconds to stop. And then just let it go. It may be a few second behind. You may have to stay one position to get to it. Who? Sounds hard number. Now, you have about when seconds to find the next for the fight. Oh, good luck. Thinking if you have this start all over again with I know what for go real fastest time. Find it. I can tell us Ford. It's not left not south not east is really in the Ford area. I'm gonna go back. It was Ford. This is ninety degrees straight north, and I just tilted up. Here's the third one. Good good at this. All right soon. You did. So let's get out of this. Okay. So that is a demonstration of gold gun. I hope I was able to explain exactly how you're supposed to hold your device, and what you can expect out of this game. So it is a common audio book game that you have to interact with it by doing different gestures as you heard. We had a double tap here. There to punch somebody or to grab a ladder. I had to rotate the camera forward, backward Ford backwards to climate up we tilt to the left and right double tap to shoot. So you get the basic concept how this works and that is pretty much how the game works the mini game. As you heard yourself. How difficult was for me? Just to find the first dial, I know that wasn't much for you to hear. But I was tilting the phone as I was missing like N A south west position. And then I went to the south we call southwest south southwest, which is not due south, but not south west. But. Impotent. And then I was I noticed I was tilting too far up. So I had to kind of tilted down to you about oh about fifteen degrees. So if it's so subtle, but there is a delay. And I highly recommend you just kinda take it away. Take a couple of seconds, wait for to respond, and I just if it gets real fast just stop where you are. You may takes a few seconds to catch up with you. And then it just unlocks. So don't continuously moving around just kind of move it. Wait and the move wait move way. I think that will help you dramatically and improve on how to use an play that game. So that is a demonstration introduction to gold gun episode one as I mentioned before more episodes will become an I believe there are seven episodes and total. And each of those episodes were becoming out every two or three months. This game is entirely free for the entire first episode and then episode two on. Would be paid game. And if that's something you are very interested in and once you continue the story and to play the game all the way through. So we look looking out for episode two through seven I well. My name is Thomas Tom Ville, so go by the name of anonymous until next time. Bye bye.

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff. Lauren mogul bomb here with a classic episode from our erstwhile host Christian Sager today. He's talking about one of my favorite bits of everyday science. Those little packets of silica gel that you find in everything from vitamin containers to the new bags that you buy and why you should not eat them. I'm Christian Sager. This is brain stuff. And today's question is what is silica gel. And why do I find little packets of it in so many things? I mean, that's weird. Right. Why would my new boots and my beef jerky be packed with the same stuff? Silica or more. Precisely silicon dioxide is the same stuff that quartz in Sander made of it's a desolate, meaning it adds orbs and holds water vapor, and that's adds orbs with an ad not absorbed when we say that something ads orbs moisture we mean that water molecules adhere to the surface of the material. Think of the way that sand can seem to soak up water the water's really just adhering to each grain, basically silica gel does the same thing. It's covered in millions of tiny pores that can retain moisture it can actually adsorb about forty percent of its weight in moisture. And can thus reduce the relative humidity in a closed container down to around forty percent. So you'll find silica jopacks and anything that would be affected by excess moisture it's in with leather products where it can limit the growth of mold you'll see it package with electron ICs to reduce condensation, and because silica gel is nearly harmless. You'll find it preventing spoilage in foods like pepperoni. You still don't want to eat it, though, if you emptied out a packet in eight the beads, they would begin ads orbin moisture from your tongue gums and the rest of your mouth, your first instinct would probably be to spit it out. But if you did swallow it. Well, okay, probably you'd be fine. But not all silica gel is the same. Some has a toxic coating of cobalt chloride swallowing this stuff probably won't kill you. But it might cause nausea vomiting and a few other less than awesome symptoms. And when it comes to keeping things dry silica. Joe works pretty well. Which is why it so widespread? It's also found in vitamin. Containers industrial air systems and oddly enough containers of cat litter, and this stuff is reusable. You can dry it out by heating in an oven at about three hundred degrees Fahrenheit, that's about one hundred and fifty degrees celsius and people have found all sorts of ways to reuse it. There might be too many to list. I mean, all right. I guess I can try here. It goes protecting papers from humidity drying, flowers, preventing Ruston, tools, preventing condensation on windows and inside picture frames preserving art in display cases, mitigating small spills in luggage, slowing silver, tarnishing stopping seed mold and preventing hammer lens from FOX.
