One of the bigger challenges the company is pushing forward of late is its Epic Store, a new marketplace for PC games with an 88 / 12 percent revenue split that stands in stark contrast to Valve’s Steam, with its more traditional 70 / 30 percent split.(Valve has since altered its terms to make them more developer-friendly, but the terms are not as generous as Epic’s.)In an interview with The Verge earlier this week, ahead of the company’s State of Unreal presentation at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Sweeney outlined some of his positions on the Epic Store.The former is of particularly high interest in light of recent news that Valve took multiple days to consider whether it should ban a visual novel called Rape Day, which glorified sexual violence and featured disturbing scenarios set in a post-apocalyptic setting.“Epic has two different philosophies,” Sweeney says of moderating the Epic Store.You can make a game we disagree with.” But when it comes to the store, Epic’s marketing, and Fortnite, Sweeney says the company prioritizes “high-quality experiences.”
A new sensor system developed in Saarbrücken, Germany can not only carefully control drying processes in industrial ovens, but can deliver reliable air humidity measurements even at high temperatures and in the presence of other background vapours.Professor Andreas Schütze, project manager Tilman Sauerwald and their research team at Saarland University have developed with partner companies a sensor system that precisely monitors industrial drying, baking and cooking processes.The project has received funding from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research's priority funding programme 'KMU-Innovativ' that promotes innovative technology in small and medium-sized enterprises.The engineers will be showcasing their heat-resistant sensor system from the 1st to the 5th of April at this year's Hannover Messe (Hall 2, Stand B46).When food is being baked or steamed as part of an industrial production process, it is important to keep a close eye on humidity levels.If, on the other hand, you can control the humidity in the oven precisely, the croissants will come out perfectly fluffy and the bread will have a deliciously crisp crust.
"Using our newly developed 3Cs technology, we for the first time came up with a library that allows us to investigate the entire genome simultaneously - including non-coding regions outside of genes.In total, our library contains 16.5 million unique zip codes," explains Kaulich, who leads an independent research group at the Institute of Biochemistry II.The non-coding regions which represent 98% of our genome are of particular interest as they are suspected to hold the key to numerous regulatory mechanisms.CRISPR/Cas reagents produced by the novel method can for example help to better understand mechanisms underlying chemotherapy resistance.Since then, Manuel Kaulich has established numerous additional collaborations, like the one with Dr Anja Bremm, also a group leader at the Institute of Biochemistry II, on the biological relevance of a certain protein class.Through its technology transfer subsidiary Innovectis, Goethe University has meanwhile applied for a patent to protect the innovative idea.
In an article published by the European Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences, scientists compared traditional sensory tests and the new in vitro method that was able to explain why smaller multiparticulates eased the travel of medicine from the mouth into the throat and body, reducing mouth residue.The new test let scientists easily screen different compositions of the carrier liquid and concentration of the particulates, in order to make swallowing as easy as possible.Dr Marco Ramaioli, Senior Lecturer at the University of Surrey and co-author of the study, said: "Many young children and older people find conventional tablets hard to swallow - making it difficult for them to complete drug therapy.We hope that this in vitro method, together with sensory tests, will help to develop novel medicines that could improve the lives of many people across the world."Professor Catherine Tuleu from UCL School of Pharmacy commented: "It is exciting to see advancements in age appropriate medicine design such as multiparticulate systems but successful therapeutic outcomes rely on the development of appropriate administration vehicles."Dr Mine Orlu, also from UCL School of Pharmacy, added: "The availability of predictive models to characterise the promising formulation platforms early during medicine development is key to producing medicines that are easier to take for patients with different swallowing capabilities."
A Trojan-style malware that did the rounds a couple of years ago has risen from the ashes, and is reportedly going after Israeli fintech and cryptocurrency trading software companies.The Cardinal RAT malware was first spotted back in 2017 and went largely undetected for two years.It used a novel technique to infect computers, using a downloader called Carp and malicious macros in Microsoft Excel documents to compile the source code into an executable which then deploys the malware.However, the malware is resurfacing after a recent series of updates which help it “evade detection and hinder analysis,” according to researchers from Palo Alto Networks’ Unit 42.The latest incarnation of Cardinal RAT implements a number of techniques to make analyzing attacks more difficult, one of which is steganography.While it sounds complicated, steganography refers to a group of programming techniques that are used to obscure files, messages, and other data.
Angry Birds is taking the battle to another dimension: ours.The popular franchise’s next mobile game, Angry Birds: Isle of Pigs, will harness augmented reality to let players knock down pig-filled fortresses animated over your everyday world.If this sounds familiar, it’s because a version of this game had been announced in fall 2018 as Angry Birds: First Person Slingshot...for the Magic Leap.Rovio Entertainment, the studio behind the Angry Birds franchise, gave a live demonstration of Isle of Pigs, which was developed by Resolution Games (as were the earlier Magic Leap and VR versions).TechRadar saw how it will play on a smartphone...and the answer is, surprisingly well.As players progress, fortifications become more elaborate, requiring precision and novel tactics to topple targets and win the day.

Chinese smartphone maker ZTE's upcoming smartphone has a selfie camera that sticks out from the main body of the phone.It's a novel design solution to avoid using the divisive notch that was popularized by Apple's iPhone X and adopted by numerous other Android phone makers.Moving the selfie camera outside the main body of the phone has a few benefits, like allowing more space for a larger battery, and allowing for a full-screen display without interruptions from a notch.It does, however, look unusual.Chinese smartphone maker ZTE is putting the selfie camera on its upcoming Axon V smartphone where no smartphone maker has put one before: outside the main body of the phone.The ZTE Axon V hasn't been announced yet, but its unique design was posted on the iF Design World Guide website — an organization that presents awards for design.
The DLINK project, which is a collaboration between Lancaster University and Glasgow University along with major industrial partners and advisors including BT, Nokia Bell Labs, IQE, Filtronic, Optocap and Teledyne e2v, and has in the advisory board Intel, aims to provide 'fibre-in-air' communication links with unprecedented data rate and transmission distance by exploiting a thus-far unused portion of the wireless communications spectrum, called D-band.D-Band, which is the portion of spectrum between 151-174.8 GHz, is particularly relevant for 5G because, being very wide, it enables the wireless transmission of high data rates - of around 45Gb/s.The breakthrough goal of DLINK is to enable data transmission over distances of one kilometre, by a novel transmitter with excellent ability to withstand the high attenuation from rain and other atmospheric conditions that can be problematic at that portion of the spectrum.This is because wireless data demands are continuing to gather pace with widespread proliferation of Internet connected devices such as smartphones, tablet computers and laptops.The things people choose to do with their devices is also increasingly demanding - around 74 per cent of mobile data traffic will come from video streaming within five years.All of these connected devices are placing huge strains on the existing wireless communications systems, and its limited data capacity.
On 6 March 2019 at the National Library of Technology in Prague, the 4th annual international BioSpot conference was held.During the event, representatives of both domestic and foreign investors listen to presentations by researchers highlighting the most advanced and interesting technologies in the field of life sciences with potential for implementation.This year, researchers from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, and Germany presented 22 technologies in a number of fields, such as new precision prostate cancer diagnostics capable of preventing 90 % of unnecessary biopsies, new inhibitors for the treatment of leukemias, antimicrobial agents to combat resistant infections, or a novel technology for in vitro diagnostics at the point of care based on electronic microchips with carbon nanotubes."We founded the BioSpot platform three years ago to help the most promising projects bridge the gap between laboratories and production lines, get them on the market, and allow them to dramatically enhance our lives.And I'm very pleased when I see the increasingly strong trend among researchers in life sciences to realize the potential of these technologies," says one of the founders of the BioSpot platform, Martin Fusek of the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the Czech Academy of Sciences.It attracted far more participants than in previous years.
Apple’s March 25 event sports the tagline “It’s showtime,” and the gathering — which is expected to gather Hollywood executives and filmmakers in Cupertino, California, instead of the usual techies — is rumored to be the official unveiling of the company’s slate of television and movie programming.As with any Apple projects, official details regarding the programming slate have been hard to come by, but a recent — and not surprisingly, unconfirmed — report suggests that at least five projects have completed filming, with a long list of additional TV shows and feature-length movies in various stages of development or production.Although nothing is 100 percent official at this point, The New York Times reports that list of projects that have completed filming include Are You Sleeping?, a mystery starring Octavia Spencer and based on a Kathleen Barber novel about a cold case reopened by a podcasting detective; For All Mankind, a sci-fi series from Battlestar Galactica‘s Ronald D. Moore that explores what would have happened if the international space race had continued long after it did in our timeline; and Dickinson, a comedy series based on the life of poet Emily Dickinson and starring Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) and Jane Krakowski (30 Rock).Also finished, but lacking a title, is a new comedy series from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia duo Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day, as well as an untitled thriller from M. Night Shyamalan that stars Rupert Grint, Lauren Ambrose, and Nell Tiger Free.Apple’s slate of programming still currently in development or production also includes some high-profile projects that have been reported on in the past, but in keeping with the company’s traditional secrecy, have been kept under wraps beyond the bare minimum of confirmed details.The biggest one of the bunch — both in its A-list cast and Apple’s investment in it — is an untitled series that explores the behind-the-scenes drama of a morning TV news show, which will team Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston both in front of the camera and as producers and bring Steve Carell back to television.

The Kardashians may have been able to create an entertainment phenomenon in the US by revealing their luxurious lifestyle through a long-running reality TV series, but Chinese key opinion leaders (KOLs) have been able to convert fans and generate sales on a level their Western peers can only dream of.With more than 7.5 million combined followers on WeChat and Weibo, Becky Li is one of China’s top fashion bloggers, able to convert followers to sales through posts on her WeChat public account.Three years ago, she partnered with American fashion brand Rebecca Minkoff for a limited-edition purse with the label of “Miss Fantasy.”A year later, she collaborated with iconic British car brand Mini to promote a limited-edition vehicle through WeChat, and her followers snapped up 100 cars in five minutes.“I thought WeChat would hire a celebrity,” said Li in her office, decorated in pink with atrovirens, in the heart of Guangzhou.“I often write about products based on my own preferences,” said Li, whose WeChat account, Becky’s Fantasy, was inspired by Sophie Kinsella’s The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic, a novel that tells the story of a shopping addict who is a financial journalist.
An interface system that uses augmented reality technology could help individuals with profound motor impairments operate a humanoid robot to feed themselves and perform routine personal care tasks such as scratching an itch and applying skin lotion."Our results suggest that people with profound motor deficits can improve their quality of life using robotic body surrogates," said Phillip Grice, a recent Georgia Institute of Technology Ph.D. graduate who is first author of the paper."Our goal is to give people with limited use of their own bodies access to robotic bodies so they can interact with the world in new ways," said Kemp.In the second study, the researchers provided the PR2 and interface system to Henry Evans, a California man who has been helping Georgia Tech researchers study and improve assistive robotic systems since 2011.Evans, who has very limited control of his body, tested the robot in his home for seven days and not only completed tasks, but also devised novel uses combining the operation of both robot arms at the same time - using one arm to control a washcloth and the other to use a brush."The system was very liberating to me, in that it enabled me to independently manipulate my environment for the first time since my stroke," said Evans.
In a paper to be published in the forthcoming issue in NANO, researchers from Zhejiang have uncovered a novel method of using nanocarrier-based biological fluorescent probes for detecting amphetamine and ketamine in latent fingermark, in a bid to combat drug abuse.Drug abuse has become an increasingly serious problem all over the world.However, present immunoassay methods show the limitation that only one drug can be checked in a single fingermark by one test.Moreover, the number of fingerprints obtained at the crime scene is usually limited.Therefore, it is necessary to identify more than one drug in a single fingerprint simultaneously with simple procedures.Ketamine and amphetamine are two of the most commonly abused synthetic drugs in China during recent years, both of which cause adverse effects on human central nervous system as well as other health problems.
