[New Game] Ubisoft's Motocross Physics Title Trials Frontier Comes To Android With A Geographically Limited Pre-Release

Trials is a series of motocross games that takes a liberal approach to sports and, incidentally, gravity. The latest full release, Trials Fusion, saw an iOS counterpart called Trials Frontier. This slightly more cartoony take on the long-running series features the same physics-based racing and orientation gameplay - imagine it as a single-lane, dialed-up version of Excitebike.

[Updated: Videos] Stuntmen Just Jumped Out Of An Airplane, Biked Across Rooftops And Rappelled Down Buildings To Introduce Google Glass

We've been hearing things about Google Glass, the Google-powered eyeball accessory, for a while now. While the device isn't quite ready for consumers (and won't be for a while), we got an extensive look at what these devices can do... right after Google-hired stuntmen jumped out of an airplane while on a Glass-based Hangout, then proceeded to bike across rooftops, rappel down the side of the Moscone Conference Center, and finally bike into the I/O keynote to deliver the device on stage to Sergey Brin. This is the first product announcement in recent memory where someone could have feasibly died during a demo.
