Oscar Werner, president of Tobii Tech, game me a rundown of the company s eye-tracking technology for games at CES 2017, and I m finally getting around to relating that experience.But there s no question that Tobii and eye-tracking is gathering momentum.The sensors have been integrated into a variety of laptops and displays, and around 50 games now take advantage of the eye-tracking controls, Werner said in an interview with GamesBeat.Going forward, devices have to understand who you are, what you are doing, and where you are looking, Werner said.The uses range from user authentication through iris recognition — in which case the computer needs to know where your iris is and what your eye looks like — to controlling a game in a way that is faster than someone who is competing against you.Among the laptops that using the technology is the Acer Aspire V 17 Nitro Black Edition, which was introduced at CES, the big tech trade show in Las Vegas earlier this month.The Alienware 17 gaming laptop also has integrated Tobii Aware software, and so does the MSi GT72 6QE Dominator Pro G laptop.There are other things you can do that will speed up how quickly you can shift your body while running.If there s a chance for Tobii to build an extended tutorial into a game or software program, it will probably become a lot easier to learn.I could drive straight and look to the side of the screen and hack that object quickly without losing my focus on driving.

See the graphics on the longest and heaviest rocket ever built.the Saturn V was used in all the Apollo moon landings, as well as at the launch of the space station Skylab.Many are speculating on a return visit on the moon or manned trips to Mars, but right now there are no rockets that can handle the job.the Falcon 9, a privatbyggd rocket from Elon Musks SpaceX, lifts now supplies to the International space station (ISS).It is a milestone in space travel, but it is only a nyårsfyrverkeri compared to the largest rocket that has been built, the Saturn V, the only thing that had enough force to send people to the moon.this graphic was published in the History of science and technology number 4, 2013.

When we think about the survival of the human race we often focus on making sure our planet stays alive and habitable, but out there in the depths of space there are entire galaxies being killed off in a manner that is utterly perplexing scientists.A new paper PDF from researchers working at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research addresses the odd and extremely troubling trend and attempts to propose an answer for what exactly is leading literally thousands of galaxies to die premature deaths.After studying a whopping 11,000 galaxies in the general vicinity of our own, scientists now believe that a process called ram-pressure stripping is leading the ailing galaxies to be purged of their gas, preventing new stars from forming and leading them to sputter out far faster than would be expected.Without adequate gas to power new star formation, the galaxies simply get cold and die.During their lifetimes, galaxies can inhabit halos of different sizes, ranging from masses typical of our own Milky Way to halos thousands of times more massive, Toby Brown, the PhD candidate who headed the study, explains on the organization s website.As galaxies fall through these larger halos, the superheated intergalactic plasma between them removes their gas in a fast-acting process called ram-pressure stripping.

Its feature set is what you'd expect of a fitness tracker at its price – namely an accelerometer and gyrometer for activity and sleep tracking, and a heart rate sensor on the back.It s also water resistant to an IP68 rating, so will happily go for a swim or in the shower.It promises up to six days of battery life – although my actual experience was far from this – and has an always-on-display for its watch-like face.Yet for all of this, the Huawei Fit still feels very much like a by-the-numbers fitness tracker that covers the basics without really asserting itself in a crowded market.Its industrial chic is far removed from the similarly shaped Withings Go, feeling far more premium and better resembling a traditional watch.There s a choice of colours, including a black band with black watchcase and either blue or orange bands alongside a silver watchcase.

Checkout lanes in stores are famous for opportunities to practice patience.Not if you have its futuristic Scan & Go app.Sadly, while that app has actually been in existence since 2013, it only existed for iPhone users.That changes today with Walmart finally rolling it out to Android users to enjoy skipping lines.That is, if you live near the one and only Walmart branch it s currently working in.The idea behind Scan & Go is genius in its simplicity and, at the same time, sounds too good to be true.
