Photo: Skydio Skydio, a startup that makes autonomous drones that fly themselves with little human intervention, is entering the commercial drone market with its new X2 model. The X2 is Skydio’s first non-consumer device and it’s marketed toward government agencies, the military, and other organizations that require aerial surveillance or surveying, and it comes with a built-in infrared thermal camera.

Skydio first entered the market a little more than two years ago with the Skydio R1. The R1 was an autonomous drone that sported impressive artificial intelligence-powered obstacle avoidance and other sensors and... Continue reading…

Vanity Fair has just dropped a sneaky new teaser for The Mandalorian.It’s got some new footage compared to even last week’s trailer, one that, shock of shocks, actually features a lot more than just Werner Herzog Werner-Herzogging all over the show.We get to hear a little more from Kuuil the Ugnaught, who’s been glimpsed in both merchandise and briefly in the trailers (and this trailer seemingly confirms that he’s indeed Nick Nolte’s previously unannounced character) as one of the many associates of Pedro Pascal’s masked Mandalorian – although here he’s telling us he’s never actually met a Mandalorian before, so they’re perhaps not quite really associates just yet.But we also get to hear from a character we’ve not seen at all: Ming-Na Wen’s mysterious mercenary (is there anyone in this show who isn’t one of those?“Your name will be legendary.” Enjoy this new teaser for Jon Favreau's TheMandalorian: https://t.co/rVw9PWV7mS pic.twitter.com/Wx9WkcyNSN— VANITY FAIR (@VanityFair) November 4, 2019

The video game industry is reaching more people than ever — but this also means that ergonomic issues and injuries will happen more often to more people.At a very basic level, ergonomics, as defined by the International Ergonomics Association, is “the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance.”As it relates to gaming, ergonomics examines how players interact with their hardware and tools — and how the current standards may not be enough.Due to repetitive actions such as continued button pressing, odd finger positioning, and rapid mouse movements/clicking, health issues in the hand and wrist are among the first to crop up for regular players.Health experts have reported circulatory disorders, tenosynovitis, and even spinal damage as a result of continued joint stress.Less seriously, but perhaps more prevalent, is the simple loss of performance due to uncomfortable postures.

Anyone who has an interest in electric vehicles (EVs) knows the common knocks against them by heart: Long charging times, limited range, charging station availability and so on.To make the EV more palatable to the American public, researchers at Penn State University have had a breakthrough in reducing lithium-ion battery charging times to 10 minutes.Lead author Xiao-Guang Yang and his colleagues published a report in Joule, a journal focused on the science of sustainable energy.There are still some hurdles to clear but the long-held dream of a practical EV on par with the convenience of a gasoline engine could be closer at hand than people think.In a home with standard 120 Volt electrical outlets, you’ll get about two to five miles of range per hour, while charging through a more powerful 240 Volt outlet delivers ten to twenty miles per hour of charging.Faster charging hasn’t been able to progress due to the damaging effects of lithium plating (metallic lithium that forms around the anode of the battery) which forms when a lot of electricity is delivered very quickly.

Though many prominent opinion-havers rage about the imminent death of the English language at the hands of emoji-wielding teenagers, the Internet has done no more harm to English than television, radio, or dime novels.By defining “l33t” and “Thanks Obama,” Dictionary.com became the Web’s referenceIn fact, McCulloch makes a compelling argument that Internet language, and emoji in particular, is restoring life to the relatively emotionless medium of text.For hundreds of years, public writing was limited to formal contexts like newspapers and books, written by educated people using very formal language for the edification of other educated people.Private, informal writing (like shopping lists or notes passed between students at the back of a classroom) is now publicly visible, and the conventions developed by individuals or small groups for writing informally can spread and interact on a global scale.To McCulloch, this is more exciting than it is scary, and reading Because Internet might convince you to feel the same.

The X-37B, a test vehicle operated by the U.S. Air Force, has returned from orbit and landed successfully at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, more than two years after it originally launched on its latest mission aboard a SpaceX rocket.The X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle, as it’s formally known, was on its fifth mission, which involved — well, we don’t really know.The whole point of X-37B is that its mission is mostly clandestine, so we likely won’t ever know the full particulars of what it has been up to in its orbital jaunts.But we do know that it’s demonstrating technologies for USAF use, and specifically to help them develop a “reliable, reusable, unmanned space test platform.”We know from the Air Fore that that means running a battery of tests across systems including avionics, guidance, thermal shielding, propulsion, spacecraft re-entry systems and more.We also know that it’s around 30-feet long, like a kind of shrunk-down Space Shuttle, and we know that it’s built by Air Force contractor Boeing.

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Professor Anthony Zador has taken the next step in his quest to solve exactly how the brain is wired.Zador, a neuroscientist whose lab studies how the brain's circuitry mediates and controls complex behaviors, set out about 10 years ago to map three pillars of brain function: connectivity, gene expression and physiological activity.Because the technology didn't exist to effectively do that, his team developed MAPseq, a technique used to map the connections of different brain cells and gain a better understanding of how they interact with each other.In a study published in the latest issue of Cell, Zador's lab, led by Xiaoyin Chen, a postdoctoral fellow and the first author on the paper, introduces BARseq, the next generation of MAPseq.The new technology can be used to expand the brain map by accurately pinpointing the location of a neuron.It's a bunch of neurons connected to one another," Zador said.

At this point, it is likely that the Honor 20 SE is already familiar to you.It is the way in which we are calling the next mid-range Honor that has already been filtered on a few occasions, but not with as much detail as today.In case you have not been aware of the news and information on this phone, there are those who call it Honor 20 Lite, but considering that the same phone can already be found in the market, we prefer to call it Honor 20 SE, because we saw some time ago This name leaked.The point is that this terminal has appeared today in a Chinese store, showing its design with great detail, as well as its final features.In the store itself, the name given to it is Honor 20 Youth Edition, and the brand’s terminals accompanied by that name are usually the Lite, so we don’t know what name it will finally come with.Nor do we know if it will reach the international market, but we cannot say that we would not like to see it leave China.
