Hey, Pokéfolk! Google and Niantic are looking for some beta testers (read: field testers) to test out Pokemon GO! If you wanna be the very best like no one ever was, then you should sign up over here to help the game be the very best it can be like no other game ever was. Go on, then! Sign up!

  • Finn Jones chatted a bit with Entertainment Weekly about the training that he’s taking on now that he’s playing Iron Fist. Apparently it’s pretty darn intense!
  • BFG fans: there’s a brand new trailer out just for you today, and it’s got plenty of Mark Rylance! Give it a look-see, why don’t ya? (via Birth.Movies.Death.)

You and I both know what Hermione got up to post-Battle of Hogwarts. But this one fan came up with a really creative take on Hermione’s post-graduate life in a new webseries called Magic for Muggles. You can check out the first episode above and get caught up to Episode 9, which came out today! You can find the full playlist on the Magic for Muggles YouTube page, as well.

  • Speaking of things that are like magic: check out this neat wall outlet adapter that lets you plug your USB devices in directly to the wall to charge. No more having to mess with weird adapters and things anymore. Sweet. (via The Verge)
  • Last but absolutely not least: some Cleveland teenagers won a world Robotics Championship competition, beating out 20,000 other students from 42 countries. Way to go, Youth Technology Academy Team 120! (via The Grio)
