  • So help me, I need this LEGO NES and its (kind of) playable Mario game

    Jul 14, 2020 | 13:02 pm

    So help me, I need this LEGO NES and its (kind of) playable Mario game LEGO and Nintendo today confirmed they’re releasing a new set, this time a recreation of the classic Nintendo Entertainment System console. Far from a simple recreation, this brick set will apparently allow you to actually play a Mario game… well, sort of. Details about the set leaked earlier this week, and were confirmed when LEGO released a video on it today. It’s to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the console, and is almost a note-perfect recreation — they even cheekily sneak in a shot of the person assembling it blowing on the cartridge before putting it in. And lest you think this…[…]

  • This robot uses color cameras and AI to grab transparent objects

    Jul 14, 2020 | 12:54 pm

    This robot uses color cameras and AI to grab transparent objects Robots have got pretty good at picking up objects. But give them something shiny or clear, and the poor droids will likely lose their grip. Not ideal if you want a kitchen robot that can slice you a piece of pie. Their confusion often stems from their depth camera systems. These cameras shine infrared light on an object to detect its shape, which works pretty well on opaque items. But put them in front of a transparent object, and the light will go straight through and scatter off reflective surfaces, making it tricky to calculate the item’s shape. Researchers from Carnegie…[…]

  • UK bans Huawei from 5G network, citing security risks triggered by US sanctions

    Jul 14, 2020 | 10:40 am

    UK bans Huawei from 5G network, citing security risks triggered by US sanctions Britain has announced it’s banning Huawei from the country’s 5G network, mere months after agreeing to keep the firm as a supplier. Telecom company will have to strip all Huawei gear from their networks by 2027, and will be barred from buying any more of its 5G tech from the start of next year. Digital Secretary Oliver Dowden said the move would cost up to $2.5bn and delay the UK‘s 5G rollout by two-to-three years. “This has not been an easy decision, but it is the right one for the UK telecoms networks, for our national security and our economy, both…[…]

  • This annoying Call of Duty: Warzone bug is absolutely killing me

    Jul 14, 2020 | 09:16 am

    This annoying Call of Duty: Warzone bug is absolutely killing me I was never a fan of the Call of Duty franchise, but its battle royale format, Warzone, has won me over. I love its pace, the fictitious city of Verdansk where battle takes place, and all the little details like custom loadouts and infinite respawns that make the gameplay so dynamic. I also appreciate the fact it’s free-to-play (even though you’ll probably end up buying the full game if you care about leveling up your weapons). But there’s one thing about Warzone that absolutely infuriates me: it’s painfully easy to get irreversibly stuck at any random spot. Protip: Don’t go prone while using a Buy Station…[…]

  • Ghost of Tsushima is samurai Assassin’s Creed — and not much else

    Jul 14, 2020 | 08:59 am

    Ghost of Tsushima is samurai Assassin’s Creed — and not much else It hasn’t even been a full month since The Last of Us Part 2 came out and set the console gaming community on fire with its controversial story – but Sony is already back with another first-party exclusive to cap off this console generation. Yes, it’s up to Sucker Punch’s Ghost of Tsushima to be the actual last big Sony-published PlayStation 4-exclusive, before we move on to the PlayStation 5 era later this year. And coming hot off the heels of TLOU2, that’s no minor task. Ghost of Tsushima is an open-world action adventure set in medieval Japan. You take on…[…]

The idea was you scan it and are directed to a PDF of the menu online. I huffed and puffed about how irritating…[…]
