Whether you’re waiting on your Nintendo Switch to be delivered so you can play through the new Zelda game or have already run through it several times, you’ll be happy to know that there’s another Breath of the Wild treat in store for you.Only, it isn’t from the folks at Nintendo.Developer Winterdrake created a 2D version of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild after drawing inspiration from the 8-bit prototype that Nintendo built to test the game’s mechanics.If you watched the demo of Nintendo’s prototype at the Game Developers Conference 2017, you’ll find that Breath of the NES looks fairly similar, albeit with added graphical polish.The game is still in the works, but you can grab the free playable demo and give it a go on your PC right away.Winter Drake notes that they plan to add more environments and features, and may not necessarily stay entirely faithful to the Nintendo title.

Det var i juli 2015, mitt i högsommarens nyhetstorka, som Breakit först kunde berätta att sångaren Eric Saade gått in som delägare i dejtingappen 7heaven.Appen påminde om Tinder, men med skillnaden att det bara gick att visa bilder som var max sex timmar gamla.Detta för att minska osäkerheten kring hur de potentiella dejterna egentligen ser ut.Eric Saade kom in i bolaget för att hjälpa till med marknadsföring, genom att sprida ordet om appen till sina fans.Nu kan dock Breakit berätta att 7heaven har lagts ner – faktiskt för mer än ett år sedan.Vi konstaterade att det är ett väldigt tufft segment att slå sig in på, och att man behöver ha väldigt stora resurser.

Driverless cars are coming to British motorways in 2019 and will travel autonomously between the cities of London and Oxford.The UK government unveiled plans on Monday to accelerate its autonomous driving efforts by investing £13 million in multiple projects to help it fulfil its ambition to become a world leader in getting the futuristic tech on the roads.Driven, a consortium led by Oxford Robotics Institute spinout Oxbotica, received a hefty £8 million chunk of the money.Oxbotica is already conducting self-driving pod trials in London, but the consortium is working towards getting driverless cars -- with a backup driver inside for safety -- travelling long distances on British motorways within the next 30 months.In the meantime, extensive tests will take place at RACE, a robotics centre in Oxfordshire run by the the UK Atomic Energy Authority, which boasts 10 kilometres of roads, junctions, roundabouts, as well as traffic lights and pedestrian crossings."Driven is important because it will answer questions around cyber security and insurance as well as the underlying technology," said RACE Director Rob Buckingham in a statement.

This past week, the novelist Cormac McCarthy published the of his career, a three-thousand-word essay titled “The Kekulé Problem,” in the popular science magazine Nautilus.It is studded with suggestive details about the anatomy of the human larynx, what happens to dolphins under anesthesia, and the origins of the click sounds in Khoisan languages, all marshalled to illuminate aspects of a profound pair of questions: Why did human language originate, and how is it related to the unconscious mind?Five years ago, I at the Santa Fe Institute, a theoretical-research center where he is a trustee and has spent a considerable portion of the last two decades.The institute is devoted to understanding the fundamental principles of complex systems at a variety of scales, from cell biology to human societies.Our conversation took place in its library, where we were surrounded by nearly eight thousand books with titles like “” and “.” These sorts of subjects, and the scientists who study them, have long interested McCarthy more than anything happening in contemporary fiction.Language, he says, “crossed mountains and oceans as if they weren’t there.”

For every 20 ads with an impossibly contorted white woman, we found maybe one with a minority—never mind a woman looking empowered, or even doing something normal like reading a newspaper … or welding, Flashdance-style.And there are costs to the norms we help perpetuate, both social and economic.Per Dove’s Global Beauty and Confidence Report from 2016, 68 percent of women can’t identify with the images they see in ads.The result is “Image_Hack,” a Dove-branded effort to take the industry on through a common tool—Shutterstock.After observing terms like “beautiful woman” and “real woman” mostly yield the same ol’ same, “we collaborated with some of the biggest photographers in the industry and took pictures of strong, independent and original women in non-stereotypical settings,” Mindshare creative director Kenneth Kaadtmann told AdFreak.“The pictures were uploaded to stock sites and tagged to alter [their] algorithms, giving anyone who searches the site a realistic picture of women in today’s society.

NASA first announced that all of its photo archives would be made available on one easily searchable website in late March.But an interview with some of the minds behind the merger, courtesy of ArsTechnica, rekindled our memories and reminded us just how amazing the archive really is.The new site consolidates the image archives that have been separate since each of NASA's 10 field centers first began uploading their own assets in the '90s.Before it launched, finding everything NASA had available on a particular subject or searching for a specific photograph required digging around dozens of NASA websites in over 100 collections.Now, approximately 140,000 images, videos and sound files are all in one archive with a simple interface that is quick and easy to use.The plaque that Apollo 13 was supposed to leave on the moon?

Although it's still in the early stages, detailed haptic-feedback controllers could well be the next wave of VR interactive control systems.Looking to develop the next generation of human interaction technologies for virtual reality, Contact Ci has debuted the Maestro, a haptic feedback glove system that uses arm-mounted motors to deliver detailed force feedback to the wearer.The idea is to have it offer much more nuanced and realistic resistance when a user encounters in-game objects.One of the most groundbreaking additions to virtual reality has been the HTC Vive’s motion controllers.While arguably the Oculus Touch controllers offer a slightly more free-feeling VR experience, both systems still rely on rumbly internal motors to give the user the feel that they’re interacting with real objects in VR.Maestro is designed to take things to the next level.
