You won't escape Google ads in VR

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. Sorry, folks, donning a virtual reality headset won’t offer a refuge from internet advertising. Google’s Area 120 incubator is experimenting with online ad formats designed with VR in mind. It’s a lot trickier than slapping a banner on a website, as you might have already guessed. The team says it’s trying to create ads that feel at home in VR and are relatively flexible, but are also “non-intrusive” and genuinely useful if you’re interested. Area 120’s first concept appears to hit that mark. The initial concept packages the ad into a cube that unfolds into an ad (in this case, a YouTube video promoting an app) when you tap on the cube or stare at it for a few seconds. Close the video and a download button briefly appears before shrinking back into the box. It’s a simple concept, but it gets the point across without feeling out of place or risking an accidental launch. Area 120 is currently testing the ad format on Google’s own Cardboard and Daydream VR experiences as well as Samsung’s Gear VR, and it’s encouraging VR developers to sign up for an early access program to get a head start. It’s hard not to wince at the thought of headset-based sales pitches, but this could be important to the future of VR. Many mobile app creators depend on ads for a living, and this format would let them offer VR titles without either charging you for access or having to figure out their own ad solution. While this won’t necessarily raise the quality of VR apps (it’s easy to see this enabling a lot of fluff), it could at least give you more than a handful of choices.

NBC Sports’ new Premier League plan is terrible for everyone

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. When NBC Sports announced its new $50 Premier League Pass yesterday, it was easy for soccer fans in the US to get excited about the ability to watch without a cable subscription. However, upon close inspection, the new broadcast structure for England’s top league may be worse than limiting a full slate of games to those who have a plan with Comcast, Time Warner or other providers. Allow me to explain. If you want the comprehensive slate of matches that has been available through the NBC Sports apps in the past, you’ll have to pay for both the new subscription and a cable plan. The NBC Sports Gold Premier League Pass will give subscribers access to 130 games during the season for $50. The Premier League schedule has a lot more games than that, so where are the others? NBC says “up to 250 games” will be available to cable customers that air on NBC, NBCSN and CNBC — the three networks that typically show the top matchups each weekend in the US. In other words, NBC Sports is dividing its coverage between people who are willing to pay for cable and those who aren’t. NBC Sports confirmed to Engadget that the only time Pass subscribers will be able to stream games broadcast on NBC networks will be after the fact as archived replays of “most matches.” Now, $50 for an entire season isn’t that big of an investment. But you’re getting a limited number of games and matchups that may not be super compelling unless you’re a die-hard fan of a mediocre top-tier English club. Even then, when the likes of Swansea City face top-of-the-table sides like Chelsea, a cable subscription may be your only way to watch. And the same applies for fans of good clubs taking on terrible teams — Manchester City fans may need this new subscription when they’re playing a team at the bottom of the table. NBC will most likely continue to air the week’s best matches on its broadcast networks. Basically NBC is screwing both cord cutters and cable subscribers. Sure, the Premier League continues to gain popularity in the US and NBC is likely wrestling with a way to cash in on those Extra Time games. But this is a terrible solution for both casual and die-hard soccer fans. Just charge us $100 (or slightly more) per season and give us access to every game without demanding that we have a cable plan to see the best matchups. Or heck, give us the option to watch our favorite team for...

Lawsuit claims Uber discriminates against people with disabilities

Lawsuit claims Uber discriminates against people with disabilities

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. Uber launched a couple of new programs back in 2014 to serve people who use wheelchairs. UberAssist is a way to hail an UberX driver trained in accessibility and whose car can accommodate a folding wheelchair. UberWAV will send you an actual accessible vehicle with a rear-entry ramp and safety features for riders with accessibility needs. These programs are only available in a handful of larger markets like New York Washington DC or Portland, unfortunately. In addition, Uber may not have provided these services in equal ways to riders who need them even in cities where these programs exist. The Washington, DC-based Equal Rights Center (ERC) is suing Uber for denying that equal access to people with disabilities, claiming that the company is in violation of Title 3 of the Americans with Disabilities Act as well as the DC Human Rights Act. The organization conducted an investigation that compared the experience of customers with and without disabilities. The ERC claims that Uber makes people in wheelchairs wait an average of eight times longer for an accessible solution to arrive and had to pay twice as much in fares. Further, it alleges that none of the more than 30,000 Uber cars in DC is capable of serving individuals who can’t use a folding wheelchair. “Uber had the power to design and implement services in the District that connect wheelchair users to employment and educational opportunities, support services and cultural events,” said Michal Allen, a partner at the firm representing the ERC. “It just chose not to do so. By flouting federal and local accessibility laws, Uber deprives wheelchair users of the life-changing benefits of the convenient, affordable, on-demand services that Uber delivers to its customers who don’t use wheelchairs.” This isn’t the first lawsuit Uber’s faced over accessibility, either. A couple of wheelchair users from Mississippi filed a suit last May, which alleged that Uber had no accessible options in the city of Jackson. A Chicago disability group also sued Uber for violating wheelchair accessibility laws last October. We’ve reached out to Uber for comment, and will update this post with their reply.

Telegram will register with Russia but won't share secure data

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. A few days ago, we reported that Russia’s communications regulator demanded that messaging app Telegram hand over information, including decrypted user messages, or risk being banned from the country. Now, Reuters reports that Telegram has agreed to register with the Russian government but will not hand over any user data or messages. Russia claims it needs information from Telegram to put the app on a list of information distributors that officially operate within the country. While Pavel Durov, the founder of Telegram, says that the company is happy to register, he refuses to comply with any requests that violate Telegram’s confidentiality policy. The reason behind Russia’s demands? It says that terrorists have been using the Telegram app to plan attacks, including a suicide bombing in April. While Telegram has been shutting down known terrorist channels on the network, it’s easy for them to create new ones. This is just the latest conflict in the ongoing struggle between the need to protect users’ privacy and a desire to crack down on terrorist communication. For now, though, it appears as though users’ Telegram data is safe: Durov has been vehemently arguing in favor of privacy protection on Twitter and has made it clear the service won’t compromise on this issue.

Fox Sports brings its 'virtual suite' to Gold Cup VR broadcasts

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. Fox Sports is no stranger to VR. The network broadcasted Super Bowl 51 via a virtual suite of sorts, for instance. Now Fox is taking that further with the CONCACAF Gold Cup soccer championship. The footie action starts July 8th with the USA vs. Panama match at 4:30 PM Eastern, and will continue with two as-of-yet unannounced games thereafter. Basically, it’s combining that social space from American football with its previous work of broadcasting what everyone else around the world calls football, in VR. The suite sounds a lot like what Fox had on offer for the Super Bowl earlier this year: multiple camera angles to choose from, there will be several 360-degree pre-show videos and replay features, too. The differences this time are that it’s sponsored by Buffalo Wild Wings and you can link up to watch with friends. So you should probably expect to see the corporate sports bar’s familiar black and yellow logo wherever you look. If there’s a catch, it’s that you need a Facebook account to login and join your friends so you can watch from the social lounge together. No friends? No problem: the app will pair you with randoms too. Hanging out with strangers in VR was on your bucket list anyway, right?

Canada says court order to pull Google results applies worldwide

Canada says court order to pull Google results applies worldwide

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. In 2012, Canadian manufacturer Equustek asked Google to remove search results relating to a court case against Datalink, a distributor of the former company’s network devices. While Google complied with the request, it only did so in Canada itself. The Supreme Court then ordered Google to remove search results pertaining to the issue in all countries Google operated in. Google appealed the decision, arguing that the order went against its own freedom of expression. The court has now rejected the company’s argument. The majority decision says that Canadian courts may in fact grant injunctions that compel compliance anywhere in the world. “The internet has no borders – its natural habitat is global,” the Supreme Court wrote in its judgment. “The only way to ensure that the interlocutory injunction attained its objective was to have it apply where Google operates – globally.” This isn’t the first time a country has told Google to comply globally. EU courts told Google to allow user requests to pull outdated or irrelevant information, while a court in France ruled that the company must extend the so-called “right to be forgotten” rule to global, not just regional, search results. As reported by Reuters, the current Canadian ruling is opposed by civil liberties groups since it sets a precedent for internet censorship. “There is great risk that governments and commercial entities will see this ruling as justifying censorship requests that could result in perfectly legal and legitimate content disappearing off the web because of a court order in the opposite corner of the globe,” said David Christopher, a spokesperson for OpenMedia, a Canadian group that campaigns against censorship. Google cannot appeal the Supreme Court’s decision, but may apply for an alteration to the order when it has evidence that complying would violate other countries’ laws, according to Reuters.

Google Photos' AI-powered sharing is now available

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. Google is making good on its promise of AI-assisted photo sharing. A Google Photos upgrade arriving this week uses machine learning to suggest pictures based on both your own sharing habits, the people in the photos, and whether or not they’re part of a “meaningful moment,” such as a party or a wedding. You might not have to remember to share photos of your best friend when you get home from a big weekend shindig. You can customize who receives the photos, of course, and fellow Google Photos users can get reminders to add their photos to the relevant album. The update is also a big deal if you always want to share snapshots. There’s now an option to share your photo library, whether it’s the whole thing or snippets based on specific criteria. You can limit Photos to sharing pictures that include your partner, for example, or only those photos taken from a certain date onward. Neither feature is flawless. What if your significant other has their back turned to the camera in an otherwise important shot? And while your friends won’t need Google Photos to receive suggested shares, the shared library clearly depends on everyone signing up. Still, this might be one of the more practical examples of how AI technology can help in everyday life. You won’t always have to remember to share photos when you get home — a machine will do much of the work for you.

Artistic AI paints portraits of people who aren't really there

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. Mike Tyka paints the portraits of people who don’t exist. The subjects of his ephemeral artwork are not born from any brush. Rather, they are sculpted — roughly — from the digital imagination of his computer’s neural network. Faces are “interesting and we humans react strongly to them, we tend to read a lot into them,” Tyka explained over email. “I find I connect with them when I work with them, I’m curious about who they might be, if they existed.” As such, Tyka has spent the past nine months or so developing the Portraits of Imaginary People project, which follows his earlier works, Inceptionism and The Groovik’s Cube. For Imaginary People, Tyka sought to use generative neural networks to create original portraits, much like the one Alexander Reben used to mimic Bob Ross’ speaking style. To do so, Tyka turned to a machine learning technique known as a generative adversarial network (GAN). “I started experimenting with GANs for this installation I did with Refik Anadol, where we used the technique to generate imaginary historical documents from a large archive,” Tyka wrote. “After we finished that project (it opened in April in Istanbul), I started looking at faces again using the same techniques.” If you want a generative model like a GAN to, say, draw you a picture of a cat, you’ll first have to get a huge data set of cat pictures and then train the model to create a picture of a cat with all the requisite features like ears, whiskers and a tail. In this case, Tyka utilized roughly 20,000 high-resolution portraits from Flickr as his base training data set. That’s a good first step, but let’s say you want a realistic picture of a cat, not a digital doodle. To do that, you need to set up a second (adversarial) neural network, known as a discriminator, for your GAN. So while the first network (the generator) creates pictures of cats, the discriminator’s job is to compare those generated images against real-world samples (e.g., actual pictures of cats) and figure out if they’re fake or not. Based on each result, the system then goes back and tweaks the generator network’s parameters to make the output image appear more and more realistic. If you’re only using a single, unconditioned GAN, the output image is typically only going to be in the 128×128 to 256×256 pixel range, Tyka explained. So to increase the size of these machine-generated images, he stacked multiple, separately trained GANs on top of one another. “The second stage is a superres GAN which...

DNC hires ex-Uber engineer as its chief technology officer

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. The Democratic National Committee has selected ex-Twitter VP Raffi Krikorian as its chief technology officer. Krikorian was until recently the senior director of engineering at Uber’s Advanced Technologies Center, but left the company in February. The DNC had plenty of cyber troubles during the election — most notably an email hack, information from which was subsequently posted by WikiLeaks. And boosting the DNC’s cyber defenses will clearly be one of Krikorian’s priorities. However, DNC Chair Tom Perez told Politico in January that he wanted an in-house cybersecurity officer to also work with state partners, not just the DNC. Pennsylvania Democrats were hit with ransomware in March and last year, the FBI suspected a number of Democrat officials’ cellphones had been hacked. Some of Krikorian’s other roles might include some much-needed updates to the DNC’s use of technology in their campaigns. In the job posting for the CTO, the DNC made it clear they were looking for someone who could spur some innovation in how the party uses tech. The DNC hasn’t yet announced when Krikorian will start his new position.

US hit by cyberattack that targeted Ukraine and Russia

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. Yesterday, a number of Ukrainian and Russian companies and state agencies reported being hit by a cyberattack, the results of which ranged from flight delays at Boryspil airport to a shutdown of Chernobyl nuclear power plant’s automatic radiation monitoring system. And while those two countries took the brunt of it, the virus at the root of the attack quickly spread throughout Europe and to Asia, Australia and the US. Among those affected in the US were hospitals, the pharmaceutical company Merck, Nabisco and Oreo. A major Los Angeles port was forced to stop operations yesterday because of the attack and was still closed as of this morning. FedEx also experienced disruptions in its TNT Express delivery service. A US nuclear power plant was the victim of a cyberattack as well, but it’s not as of yet clear whether it was connected to the others. The virus being spread is thought to be a version of the “Petya” ransomware and like the WannaCry virus that wreaked international havoc in May, it appears to take advantage of a Microsoft Windows flaw uncovered by the NSA and published online by hackers. This virus, however, seems to only be able to spread between directly connected networks, which is believed to be the reason the attack seemed to slow throughout the day Tuesday. It’s still unclear as of now who is behind the attack.

California may give EV buyers instant rebates

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. If you’re worried about the federal tax credit for electric car purchases phasing out, you may want to pay attention to what California is proposing. The state is concerned about demand for EVs declining as the tax incentives disappear. As a result, California is considering legislation that will give instant rebates to buyers of electric cars at the time of purchase. A key component of this bill is that the rebate is instant, applied automatically when you purchase the vehicle. California currently has a mail-in EV rebate program for certain car models, but purchasers have to wait up to 90 days to receive their funds. It’s possible that this wait makes people less likely to choose electric over gasoline power for their vehicle. While it’s not clear exactly how much each rebate would be, The California Electric Vehicle Initiative would be income based. The state is specifically concerned with helping low-income residents purchase EVs. Their goal is to bring the purchase price of electric cars down to their gasoline-powered equivalents. The bill currently proposes putting aside around $3 billion total for these incentives. The legislation hasn’t been passed yet; while it passed an assembly vote, it still needs to face two Senate committees. It’s notable, though, because California is often a leader in emissions and car regulations for the rest of the country. If this becomes law in California, it’s possible we could see other states following suit.

Bonaverde wants to be the Keurig of raw coffee

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. Many people take their coffee drinking seriously, but even those with a proper espresso machine at home won’t roast their own beans. This delicate step is typically done on an industrial scale using specialist equipment, far from the end consumer. Now, the caffeine addicts at Bonaverde intend to bring roasting to the kitchen counter with the first all-in-one machine that turns raw, green coffee beans into a cup of joe. The company crowdfunded its appliance way back in 2013, and several years later the consumer model is now ready. But several questions have loomed over Bonaverde’s vision to change how people drink coffee — namely, where on earth do you buy unroasted beans? Raw, green beans aren’t exactly easy to come by. They’re usually traded by the ton, not something you pick up at your local store. Some specialist retailers do sell raw beans in consumer-friendly quantities, but you still wouldn’t call them a particularly accessible commodity. Thus, Bonaverde hasn’t just spent the past four years refining its machine; it’s also established a complete supply chain to ship beans directly from coffee growers to your doorstep. Bonaverde had to develop another machine to enable growers to package their product in the special parcels required by its all-in-one appliance. Like Keurig or Nespresso pods, these are not optional. The little pizza-slice-shaped bundles contain enough raw coffee for one pot, with the packaging doubling as the brewing filter (that’s one less thing to buy). The grower-side equipment is built with the isolated fields of developing countries in mind. It runs on solar power with battery backup, is simple enough to be fixed with “a hammer and screwdriver,” rather than needing elaborate replacement parts when it breaks down, and even has a few bonus features like being a WiFi hotspot (an embedded cellular SIM handles the connection). Key to the packaging process is a unique RFID chip that’s attached to every pouch. Bonaverde users will have to tap this tag on the front of their machine before it’ll roast raw beans. This is partly for quality control, the company tells me. As the end user will likely have zero experience with roasting, the tag communicates the optimal profile to the appliance — different strains of bean from different regions require distinct temperatures, timing and air-circulation settings to be at their best. In other words, Bonaverde doesn’t want consumers to think their machine is junk because they aren’t roasting experts. End users do have some level of control, though. Using a companion mobile app, they’re able to tweak the roasting profile if...

A lizard-inspired robot gripper may solve our space-junk problems

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. Space junk is a huge problem in orbit. Over 500,000 pieces of debris are currently orbiting the Earth at up to 17,500 miles per hour, and we haven’t yet figured out how to clean it up. But engineers at Stanford may have made a breakthrough: They’ve designed a robotic gripper based on gecko’s feet that works in zero-g. The end goal is to use it to clean up space junk. The problem with existing technology is that everything is designed to work at Earth’s gravity, within Earth’s temperature range. Scotch tape and other sticky substances aren’t adhesive in the cold temperatures of space. Suction cups rely on atmospheric pressure, which doesn’t exist in the vacuum of space. And many other devices, such as harpoons, nets and traditional grippers, require too much force, which could send debris in dangerous and unintended directions. Geckos can climb up walls and other vertical surfaces because of microscopic flaps on their feet that create an adhesive force. By modeling their technology on these flaps, the team was able to create a gripper that only requires a small push to stick to a surface. Instead of using force to grab the object, coauthor Elliot Hawkes says in the news release, “I can touch the adhesive pads very gently to a floating object, squeeze the pads toward each other so that they’re locked and then I’m able to move the object around.” So far, the gripper has been tested in multiple zero gravity environments, including on a parabolic airplane flight (also known as the vomit comet). A small version of the robotic gripper was sent to the International Space Station for testing aboard the station, but it hasn’t yet been used outside in the vacuum of space. The team’s next step is to design a larger, more durable gripper that can handle both space’s temperature extremes and the higher radiation outside the ISS.

Apple Music's latest personalized playlist helps you chill

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. Ever since Apple Music got its big redesign last year, you’ve had access to just two personalized playlists: a favorites mix and a new releases mix. Suffice it to say that this won’t cover the bases if you want tunes that suit a specific mood. However, Apple is spreading its wings a bit: it’s gradually rolling out its first new custom playlist. The weekly My Chill Mix uses a combination of human curation and an algorithm to deliver songs that help you relax, but also reflect your tastes. You could have a laid-back hip-hop selection, for instance, while your friend gets downtempo electronic tracks. Only a small number of testers can see My Chill Mix right now, but it’s expanding availability to testers over the summer. The concept of mood-specific playlists certainly isn’t new. If you can’t wait, you can already listen to a Chill station that might do the job. However, Apple’s algorithmic focus promises a more personal touch than you might be used to. And while Apple hasn’t announced long-term plans, it’s easy to see its service offering a wide range of automated playlists that match other vibes and activities, such as when you’re feeling upbeat or want to go for a run. They’d also provide more fresh music to play and give you a good reason to keep listening when you might otherwise grow bored.

LG's 77-inch Wallpaper TV is selling for the low, low price of $20k

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. LG’s W-series “Picture-on-Wall” TVs wowed us at CES, but we knew the massive 65-inch and 77-inch hyperthin screens would cost a mint. Especially since last year’s top-of-the-line G-series started at $5,000. Wonder no longer, screen aficionados: The larger 77-inch-wide W-series will retail for $20,000. To be fair, you’re getting incredible visuals on a colossal screen about one-fifth of an inch thick that is wall-mountable (and only wall-mountable — sorry, stand fans) via magnets. It doesn’t even have space for ports: Those are on a companion sound bar, which connects to the TV by thin cable. Given those limitations (and the jaw-dropping price), the screen supports 4K Ultra HD resolution and all major HDR formats. You could lower your ambitions for the 65-inch W-series model, which only costs $8,000, but how much are you willing to sacrifice for your perfect home theater experience?

Tinder's new Gold subscription shows your likes before you swipe

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. Tinder is introducing another subscription option, which comes with an exclusive perk to get existing premium members to fork out some extra cash. Tinder Gold gives you access to a new “Likes You” option that basically allows you to browse through all of your pending likes. Think of it as a shortcut that lets you cut out the riff raff and head straight to the people on the app that are interested in you. Gold members should see the “Likes You” feature from the top of the match list. From there you can access the “Likes You” grid and start auto-matching, dismissing, or clicking into each person’s profile. When swiping in general, Gold members will be able to identify their likes thanks to the presence of a gold heart next to the person’s name. The rapid-fire function is tailor-made to suit our hyperactive browsing habits. Both free users and Tinder Plus subscribers can access the Gold subscription for an as-yet undisclosed fee (according to TechCrunch, the company is trying out price points in different regions). The dating app is initially testing the service in just a handful of markets, including Argentina, Australia, Canada, and Mexico — it is currently not available in the US. Gold also comes bundled with all the perks you get with Plus, such as Passport, Rewind, unlimited likes, five Super Likes per day, one Boost per month, and more profile controls. Like Tinder Plus, the price of Gold will also decrease based on the duration you choose, with reductions for 6 and 12 month plans. Gold is another in a steady line of attempts by the company to wrangle some cash from users. And it might be working: Tinder is tight-lipped about the amount of paying members it has, but at last count it was estimated that 1 million of its 50 million user base had signed up to its premium service.

Xiaomi is bringing cinema tech to a living room projector

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. When it comes to home theater setups, high-quality projectors have traditionally been the pricier way to enjoy your movies. Now, however, Chinese tech company Xiaomi is hoping to change that with its new cinema-quality Mi Laser Projector. Priced at a reasonable 9999RMb (around $1470), Xiaomi’s latest offering boasts a 150inch display and custom laser tech straight out of movie theaters. The Mi Laser Projector utilizes ALPD 3.0 laser light source tech developed by Appotronics, the company behind the laser tech in 90 percent of China’s movie theaters. Yet, Xiaomi doesn’t end its cross-company projector collaboration there, as it also features its own custom digital light processing (or DLP) solution created by Texas Instruments. In a bid to make the Mi Laser Projector a fully integrated home theater setup, Xiamoi has also included a built in a speaker system and integrated the interface from its recent TV streaming box – Mi TV. While laser projectors aren’t new, Xiaomi’s proposition of bringing the same tech used in cinemas to the home at such a cheap price is definitely tantalizing. Lasers offer the benefit of increased energy efficiency, longer life, faster startup times, better brightness and a wider color gamut. With its RRP undercutting a lot of the competition, if it can live up to its lofty promises, Xiaomi’s latest could certainly turn a few heads. Pre-orders for the Mi Laser Projector go live on July 4th at Xiaomi Mall, and on the company’s MIJIA app. Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter.Follow @DailyTechWhip Source: Engadget - Read the full article...

Théoriz recreates the Holodeck with AR tech and projectors

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. If you had to list the most mind-blowing tech demos in recent memory, Microsoft’s Hololens AR headset would need to be included, as would its projector-enhanced Illumiroom. A company called Théoriz from Lyon, France has married both of those things to create a “mixed reality room” that uses projector tech, motion tracking and augmented reality together. Its latest technology demo video made it seem like we’re closer to Star Trek‘s Holodeck than ever before, so we went to take a closer look. Théoriz is located at the “Pole Pixel,” a sprawling collection of studios east of Lyon used by Panavision and other cinema companies. The company’s mission is as much artistic as tech-oriented, so the engineers are both bohemian and code-savvy. “We are a team mostly composed of creative engineers,” says Théoriz co-founder David-Alexandre Chanel. “Engineers who have an artistic sensibility and also do good code.” To wit, the company has created some very technical and very whimsical projects, including an art installation called “Doors” featuring portals that open up to an infinite space and change perspective as the viewer moves, and “Are You my Friend,” an industrial robot that communicates with the exhibit-goers via a keyboard. Art aside, the mixed reality room tech is impressive. The team tracks the camera (typically a RED model that can record and output in real time) with an HTC Vive Tracker, and feeds the data to a computer running the Unity game engine. That generates digital environments like flying space skulls, a Minecraft-like room with holes that open up on the floor and geometric shapes that interact with actors to form stairs, wells or small hills. The computer syncs everything together, so that when the camera operator pans or tilts, the Unity scenes tilt or pan to match. Those are then beamed into the room via six projectors — four for the floors, and two on the walls. At the same time, three Kinect-style 3D cameras, combined with Théoriz’s in-house “Augmenta” system, detect the position of the actors so they can interact with the environment. Everything must be processed and played back in real-time by the Unity based system, something that required some clever coding and computing horsepower. In the resulting videos, live actors interact seamlessly with virtual environments, creating a hallucinogenic effect. “It’s called mixed reality because we use and merge things from the virtual world with reality,” says Chanel. For instance, dancers can make the walls “move” with their movements and bat away flying asteroids. In the latest demo video (above), actors interact with bizarre geometric environments, opening up...

Chinese tech giant LeEco can’t stop losing money

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. Chinese tech company LeEco has been busy over the past decade, producing everything from TVs to electric cars (or at least, trying to). But now, the conglomerate is in trouble: They are in a cash crunch and haven’t been able to raise enough money to ease the burden. The crux of the problem is the company’s rate of expansion; LeEco debuted thirteen years ago as a Netflix-style streaming video site. Now, it’s expanded into almost every sector of consumer electronics. Earlier this year, founder and CEO Jia Yueting acknowledged that the company was in financial difficulty, but a 15 billion yuan investment from Sunac, a Chinese property development firm, was supposed to present a solution to the crisis. However, the investment simply was not enough. Over the next two to three months, the finances of some of the non-listed business units became even tighter, despite the cash infusion. As reported by Reuters, Jia blamed the choice to use the money to pay off debt and loans, rather than refinance, as the source of LeEco’s current difficulties. So what now? The company is looking to move forward and start production on its electric cars, which is the largest source of the company’s financial woes. LeEco will also have to consolidate and sell off some of its non-listed entites, as well as liquidate assets to manage this current crisis.

Redesigned PS4 media hub showcases the best streaming videos

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. Sony is streamlining the way it presents TV and video on the PlayStation 4, making it easier to discover films and shows from across apps, all in one convenient location. In the past, PS4 users had to navigate to different apps (such as Netflix, Now TV, and Sky) to find shows, which resulted in a clunky process at best. Now, you can browse through trending films and shows, live events, and your PS Store “My Videos” collection from the new interface. If you still decide that you want to access an app instead, or if you have a go-to favorite platform, its icon will be available at the top of the screen, alongside other popular video services. The refresh actually looks a lot like the “cinematic” layout that was introduced with the Amazon Fire TV software update in October. As a result, the interface boasts more visuals, with categories populated with a series of rectangular tiles that represent titles, each with its own unique image and a corresponding label listing its origin app or rental store. Although it lacks the cross-app search bar offered by the fourth-gen Apple TV, the refresh is a step in the right direction. And with Sony promising more updates down the line, it could build upon the feature by emulating the categorization and search tools offered by the likes of Amazon Fire TV, Apple, Chromecast, et al. From this, the PS4 could evolve into a solid media streaming destination. The new TV and video interface is available in the UK, Australia, Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Spain, and Sweden — there’s no word on US availability yet.

Now you can make local Snapchat filters on your phone

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. Geofilters have been making Snapchat boatloads of money, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that the company is making them even more accessible. Starting today, you can create Geofilters right within the application, but only if you’re in the US. If you are, there’ no need to visit Snapchat’s website anymore if, say, you’re whipping up a design guests can use for a July 4th house party or for a friend’s wedding. You don’t even need to be a graphic designer, since you can just edit one of the app’s stock templates. To access On-Demand Geofilters, go to Settings in the app, find the option and choose a template based on the occasion. You can personalize the design by adding stickers, emojis and even tweak whatever text is on it, but forget trying to make anything too risqué. Snapchat still has to approve your creation before anyone can use it. The ephemeral messaging app says it’ll take a day to review your submission, and if it passes muster, you’ll get a notification telling you how much it’ll cost. If it’s the first time you’re making a Geofilter, take note you’ll have to indicate the area you’d like it to cover — that’s why it’s called Geofilter. The amount you’ll have to pay is based on how big that area is. For instance, the $6 minimum payment will make your overlay accessible within an area that covers a couple of houses, enough for a small July 4th BBQ with family. While the feature is only available in the US at the moment, Snapchat says it’ll roll out in the UK, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates “soon.” Source: Snapchat Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter.Follow @DailyTechWhip Source: Engadget - Read the full article...

Volkswagen’s cars will be ‘talking’ to each other by 2019

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. Vehicles will be communicating with other as soon as 2019, if Volkswagen’s plans come to fruition. Just one day after announcing its autonomous vehicle AI partnership with NVIDIA, the German car manufacturer says pWLAN (public wireless LAN) technology will be fitted to its cars as standard in just two years. The technology makes it possible for cars and transport infrastructure within a radius of 500 meters to share information about warnings, traffic and road conditions within milliseconds, giving drivers a head start on risky situations such as black ice, or a car making an emergency stop. The system will initially be limited to warnings and local information, but as the tech rolls out it’ll be possible to bring more extensive features on board, such as real-time traffic light monitoring and information on emergency service vehicles. So you’ll be able to see how far away an ambulance is, and which direction it’s travelling in, without getting flustered trying to locate it in your mirrors. The technology uses a frequency band specially intended for road safety, and because this is localized there’s no data storage involved, meaning there’s no need to worry about data costs or network coverage. It complies with the automotive industry standard for this type of tech, so there won’t be any VW cliques – cars fitted with pWLAN can talk to each other regardless of their make. The Department of Transportation has already made it pretty clear it wants America’s cars to talk to each other sooner rather than later, so you can probably expect similar announcements from other manufacturers soon.

Pornhub will sync videos with your interactive sex toys

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. If you own either the Fleshlight Launch or Kiiroo’s Onyx, then you’ll know that both are capable of syncing with a certain group of adult movies. These specially-made interactive videos contain a data layer that lets the hardware jerk and thrust along in time to the on-screen action. Now, Pornhub is getting in on the action by opening up a section of its site that is dedicated to content specifically for interactive sex toys. From today, you can now find a new Interactive section of Pornhub that offers clips intended for both the Kiiroo Onyx and Fleshlight Launch. The company has promised, however, to widen the gadgets that its clips are compatible with, to include female-friendly devices from OhMiBod, We-Vibe, Lovense and Kiiroo. Pornhub has also pledged to widen the category to include VR videos that can sync with the hardware, making truly immersive teledildonics a possibility. The content itself is being produced in partnership with Ufeel.tv, a provider of interactive videos for such tech already. In addition, Ufeel will be showing Pornhub how to embed the sync technology in a variety of other videos both from established studios and amateurs. There’s a pledge, too, that the category will launch with hundreds of clips, with at least five new ones being added each and every day. As we noted in our review of the Launch, however, it will be up to both Ufeel and Pornhub to ensure that there is a wide diversity of content available. Right now, it’s clear that the majority of these videos fit into the vanilla sex or hand job categories, although that shouldn’t be the limit as to what genres are embraced.

Report details Facebook’s bizarre logic on hate speech

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. Facebook has more than two billion users, and ensuring that the discussion between them remains civil is an understandably difficult task. But, if evidence found by ProPublica is true, the company’s own policy on hate speech may cause unreasonable disparities in how comments are moderated. The report claims that Facebook has built a comment moderation policy that protects “white men from hate speech, but not black children.” The social network has attempted to build a global ruleset of what does, and what does not, constitute hate speech. But the logic that it uses is likely to provoke outrage in users who feel that the company already fails to do enough to tackle radicalization. Facebook only deletes hate speech if it is directed against a group that it determines is a “protected category.” pic.twitter.com/0P6qPYh9qD — Julia Angwin (@JuliaAngwin) June 28, 2017 On one hand, Facebook appears to believe that you cannot, or should not, criticize someone for the things that are out of their control. For instance, a slur made against someone’s race, gender, sexuality and religious affiliation, amongst others, would be marked for deletion. But those factors that are less central to identity — in Facebook’s eyes — are fair game for comment, such as a person’s social class, job, appearance, age or religion. If that’s a little wooly, it may be easier to explain using a hypothetical situation in which the following statements were made: “Let’s hunt and kill radicalized muslims, for the sake of all that is good and righteous.” “Let’s hunt and kill all black children, for the sake of all that is good and righteous.” “Let’s hunt and kill all white men, for the sake of all that is good and righteous.” According to ProPublica’s report, the first two statements are considered fair comment because they only target a subsection of a group. Advocating the murder of the members of an entire race or religion would be protected, but a subset — the radicalized muslims, the black children — are not. The third statement, since it is targeting an entire race and gender, would be moderated off the platform. Facebook’s strange formula allows Rep. Clay Higgins’ call for violence against “radicalized Muslims” because it attacks a subgroup pic.twitter.com/UkJe85Soqh — Julia Angwin (@JuliaAngwin) June 28, 2017 One document sourced by ProPublica seems to ask moderators which groups “do we protect” from a list of female drivers, black children and white men. The answer is the final group, for the same logic that was outlined above, although it’s likely that many will be horrified that the...

These drone racing goggles could spark the sport's digital era

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. Drones with digital video capabilities already exist, but in the racing world, analog is still king. For now, at least. Fat Shark has been the go-to maker of racing drone goggles for several years, and it’s about to double down on digital, which in turn could be the nudge toward dropping analog feeds that the sport needs. The $350 Base HD is the company’s first all-digital headset, and it comes with a fancy new 720p LCoS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) display improved brightness, contrast ratios and clarity and a 28 degree field of view (this might sound small, but drone racing doesn’t call for a huge FOV). Why is this important? Racing drones might be fast, but in terms of core technology, things move fairly slow. While DJI has introduced gesture control and computer vision into their consumer drones over the last few years, the average racing quadcopter has mostly just gotten smaller and quicker. It’s still not uncommon to see a racing drone held together by tape or cable ties sporting a shoddily 3D-printed GoPro mount, and for the most part, that’s fine. But pilots are due a digital upgrade for their “FPV” (first person view) goggles, and it’s slowly starting to happen. That’s not to say there hasn’t been some progress. We’ve seen drones like UVify’s Draco and Amimon’s Falcore try and sex-up racing drones, and introduce digital video features — but most of the sport hasn’t committed to going digital just yet. Technically, Fat Shark’s goggles have been HDMI compatible for a while, but at a lower resolution — or as a secondary feature to the preferred/usual analog system. The Base HD is designed solely to work with digital systems like Connex ProSight at low latencies. The problem with analog frequencies is that they’re a much more limited resource. It’s not unheard of for events to be held up while they wait while someone’s hogging one of the frequencies needed for a pilot. And much like your old radio set in the kitchen, analog suffers from interference leading to grainy quality. The Base HD, then, is the first sign that one of the sport’s main players is taking digital seriously. The good news is, that when the headset ships this fall, the Base HD will also play nice with your DJI drones too. If your controller has a connection for HDMI out, you can use one headset for your racer and your photography drone. DJI makes its own goggles, but they’re kinda huge and kinda goofy looking (but, to be fair, also very good). Fat...

Tablo easily turns Android TV boxes into standalone DVRs

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. If you already have a TV antenna and an Android TV box like the NVIDIA Shield, then you’re very close to having everything you need for a DIY Tablo DVR. Instead of picking up one of the company’s boxes that can start at $180, now you can simply add its $70 USB dual-tuner device, install the free Tablo Engine app and start watching TV. At first, tuner buyers will get access to six months of guide data for free. Once the introductory period is over, however, while they can watch live TV and view up to 24 hours of guide data without a subscription, accessing 14 days of the guide and getting a one-click record option will come at a cost. The price is $4 per month, or $40 paid annually. According to Tablo, its app will work on Android TV devices with its tuner or hardware from Nuvyyo and Hauppage. Plex offers a similar solution at a comparable price, while HDHomeRun’s still in beta software is also an option. With Tablo, owners can record video to internal storage on a device like the Shield, or plug in a hard drive via USB for extra space. This option may not work for everyone, but if you’re within range for antenna TV and want to save a few bucks, it could do the job. The free Tablo ENGINE app provides the Tablo interface and DVR features including: Live TV: Watch, pause and rewind live TV in stunning full HD quality Fast Channel Changes: Tune to live TV in seconds from the live TV grid guide Recording & Time Shifting: Watch, pause, rewind and fast forward completed and in-progress recordings 14-Day Live TV Grid Guide: Browse and set recordings for shows airing over the next 14 days Content Discovery & Series Recording: Discover new shows and set one-click series recordings (ALL NEW or ALL episodes) via the Netflix-style program guide 5.1 Surround Sound: Enable Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound pass-through for a premium audio experience Source: Tablo Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter.Follow @DailyTechWhip Source: Engadget - Read the full article...

Qualcomm's new fingerprint sensors work underwater

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. Hot on the heels of Apple’s plans to reinvent its iPhone’s fingerprint reader, Qualcomm looks set to position itself at the forefront of the fingerprint sensor market. It claims that it will be one of the first, if not the first, companies to produce under-display sensors. Unveiling its plans at Mobile World Congress Shanghai, the company revealed that its next-gen fingerprint sensors will use ultrasonic technology that can be fitted under displays, glass and metal, and can scan through OLED displays up to 1200um — something we got to see in action for ourselves at Vivo’s booth. The sensors, expected in the first half of 2018, can even be used underwater, and can detect heart beat and blood flow whether the screen is on or off. The company’s also announced it plan to improve its entry-level gear with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 octa-core chips. Built on a 14nm process, these chips offer a marked step up from their 435 processor predecessor, including a four-hour battery life extension and a 25 percent increase in graphics performance. It’s also the first time its 400 tier supports real-time bokeh effect, where you can blur the background of a photo before taking it, which will go nicely with the chip’s support for dual cameras and FHD+ resolution. Keep an eye on the likes of Vivo, Huawei and Xiaomi — this chip will likely appear on their low- to mid-priced phones.

You'll need an Xbox to enjoy Netflix's Dolby Atmos debut

Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Share on StumbleUponShare on Twitter. According to Dolby’s website, Amazon and Vudu are the only streaming services with titles that support Atmos 3D sound technology. Now, Netflix has finally joined the very short list with the launch of Bong Joon Ho’s (Snowpiercer) Cannes Film Festival flick about a cute “superpig” called Okja. Atmos gives filmmakers the power to designate where sounds are coming from in three-dimensional space to make movies as realistic and immersive as possible. It can, for instance, make a plane in the movie sound like it’s really passing overhead or an incoming train sound like it’s zooming in from behind. While you can only enjoy the feature with Okja right now, Netflix already has a lineup of upcoming releases with Atmos support, starting with anime movie BLAME! to be available on July 28th. Its high-budget live action Death Note (August 25th) remake will also support the feature, as well as Will Smith’s $90 million fantasy action film Bright, which will launch sometime in December. The last movie in the list is action thriller Wheelman, though the service will likely add more for next year. The bad news? Netflix has pretty stringent requirements for Dolby Atmos streaming. You can only experience what it can offer if you stream Okja on a Microsoft Xbox One or Xbox One S. Further, the console must be connected to an Atmos-enabled home theater system, TV or soundbar. Headphones will also work, so long as you download the Dolby Access app from the Xbox Store. If you have an LG OLED TV, though, you don’t need to spring for an Xbox One if you don’t have it. Netflix says support for LG’s OLEDs is coming “soon,” and since they come with built-in Atmos capabilities, there’s no need to hook them up to a separate sound system.
