Infinite Room (2016)

Amazon Prime

A man wakes up in a room with no windows and metal walls. He has no idea how he got there. He finds a sarcastic robot guard for company. When he tries to break out of the jail cell, strange things happen — and by the third scene, you’ll probably experience some deja vu from the day you saw Ex Machina or Moon.

The 2016 Infinity Chamber, currently streaming on Amazon Prime, essentially follows everyone’s favorite “mysterious sci-fi movie” template. There is an ominous backdrop, a clear integration of humanity and technology, and an intelligent protagonist who seems to be the voice of reason as he grapples with a curious dilemma.

Either way, the cerebral story immerses you deeply enough to help the main character through the finish line, playing a post-human version of escape-the-room.

And if you make it to the climax, you’re in for a treat.

Built on an impressively low budget of just $125,000, partially funded by Kickstarter, director Travis Milloy’s mind-boggling film experiments with a complex plot that will test your ability to predict endings and your patience.

As Frank Lerner (Christopher Soren Kelly) tries to get out of his abandoned, locked room, he dreams lucid dreaming of sitting in a quaint coffee shop and chatting with a charming barista named Gabby (Cassandra Clark).

Immediately afterwards, Frank abruptly wakes up again in his small room with only the company of Howard, an assigned machine mate reminiscent of 2001: Hal from A Space Odyssey, Interstellar’s Tens and Moon’s Gerty.

Supposedly explaining Frank’s imprisonment, this sequence repeats itself over and over…and again…and again, giving Infinity Chamber its claustrophobic air. All the while, the warm and friendly robot Howard doesn’t have much to say about this. Howard’s only job is to keep Frank alive.

As the film progresses, you begin to realize what’s really going on — with Frank, Howard, and even Gabby.

A self-confessed excellent twist guesser, I was willing to dismiss Infinity Chamber as a satisfying retelling of the classic apocalyptic survival story. It is one of the many films in which people try to find their way out of a box-like room in a dystopian world. Some that fall into that niche genre are 1997’s Cube, 2008’s Fermat’s Room, 2009’s Exam, and more recently, 2019’s Escape Room.

But during the last 15 minutes of the movie, I let out a few involuntary “wait, what’s”, which were promptly followed by goosebumps from shock. Infinity Chamber sets itself apart by using overused tropes and adding flavor.

The room is not just any room. Howard isn’t just a snarky AI and the dreams aren’t random.

But while Infinity Chamber’s ending is satisfying enough to make the film a solid choice for a weeknight, it’s not without its flaws. They come from the half-baked subplots of the film.

The film introduces a love story, the idea of ​​existence in your own dreams, whether humans can really bond with artificial intelligence, and the ethics of prisons like the one Frank is in.

However, instead of diving into those concepts, a ton of time is spent reiterating Frank’s pain of living in the metal room and building the first milestone – one that’s so obvious, I was confused by how it shouldn’t be a surprise at all.

Right about halfway through, Infinity Chamber starts to get a little boring shortly before picking up again for act three. Perhaps that could have been solved by exploring the film’s other juicy sci-fi ideas — there were still so many interesting avenues untapped.

Still, Infinity Chamber is a delight from start to finish. The small budget and limited drawbacks are barely noticeable due to the impeccable production quality, great acting, and a clever story that is horribly linked together in the last scene – one that makes the whole hour and 38 minutes 100% worth it.

Controversial Facebook mega data center cuts line for grid connection

A mega data center for Facebook was given priority over other companies to connect to the electricity grid, although the center would put an extra burden on the already congested network. Several officials within the Ministry of Economic Affairs had expressed their doubts about the mega data center, De Telegraaf reported on the basis of released documents.

“The growth of data centers leads to an increase in electricity consumption. As long as production is not fully renewable, this will lead to additional CO2 emissions,” officials from the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy wrote in a letter. to former Minister of Economic Affairs Eric Wiebes in 2020.

Electricity demand has increased enormously in recent years and the electricity grid has not been able to cope with the increase, RTL Nieuws reported in November. The transition to renewable energy also requires a redesign of the electrical infrastructure that is still underway.

Facebook took precedence over other companies waiting years to connect to the electricity grid. Facebook’s parent company, Meta, was given priority after they threatened to move the data center to another European location. Officials expressed concern that other companies will now demand priority as well.

Officials also warned that the data center’s economic gains were “limited” and “out of line with existing and planned policies that a hyperscale data center should be located on the borders of the Netherlands”.

The municipality of Zeewold still has to cast a final vote on the data center on December 16. A small majority of the city council seems to be in favor of the center, according to NU.nl.

Facebook Messenger gets a new bill splitting feature

Meta (formerly Facebook) has introduced a new feature called “Split Payments” on Facebook Messenger.

As the name implies, the new feature allows you to easily share costs with your friends and family for free – be it a restaurant bill or a house rent.

To split the bill, all you need to do is click the “Get Started” button in a group chat or the Payments Hub in Messenger. You can then split the bill equally among the group or change the amount of the contribution for each individual, with or without yourself.

After that, enter a personal message and confirm your Facebook Pay details, and your request will be sent to the group, visible to everyone in the chat thread.

Facebook Messenger gets a new bill splitting feature

Meta will begin testing the new feature in the US next week, but it’s unclear when it will expand to other regions.

In addition to introducing the bill-splitting feature, Meta has also added four new AR-based group effects to Facebook Messenger, created in collaboration with King Bach, Emma Chamberlain, Bella Poarch, and Zach King. You can view them below.

The company also reminds us of a new chat theme and two recently launched sound mojis for fans of Stranger Things, and a new sound moji released to celebrate Taylor Swift’s new album “Red.”
