Nintendo revealed on January 12 that a spinoff of the Fire Emblem series called Fire Emblem Warriors would be released for the upcoming Switch console.Less than a week later, the company has announced additional information at a special Nintendo Direct event — not one, not two, but three other Fire Emblem games are on the way, and they ll all be available by 2018.On May 19, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia will be released across the line of portable systems, along with Amiibo figures of the two protagonists, Alm and Celica.This game is an updated version of the Japan-only Famicom game Fire Emblem Gaiden, which featured essentially the same story, same characters, and an increased emphasis on exploration.Certain towns and dungeons will also let you explore from a traditional third-person perspective, and combat looks to be relatively unchanged from the more recent Fire Emblem games.Character progression was described at the Nintendo Direct event as flexible, and will likely include branching paths.

As machines go, the human body is an extraordinarily efficient one.The way we move — our arm swing, cadence, step length — is all calibrated to minimise energy consumption, allowing the body to get the maximum mileage out of calories it consumes.But in the burgeoning field of soft robotics, scientists have struggled to replicate this.Scientists imagine that one day, robotic exoskeletons could help sick kids walk and make the elderly stronger, supplying weak bodies with supplemental strength.If only those robotic exteriors could move as efficiently as a healthy human body.Yes, we know, it looks like a high-tech knee brace, but the key innovation of this robotic exoskeleton it to pull the ankle forward mechanically.

HTC has confirmed plans to launch six or seven new phones in 2017, but the so-called HTC 11 won t be amongst them.In an interview with Engadget, a senior HTC executive revealed that we can expect plenty of new phones from the company this year.Some of these new devices will be peddled under the existing Desire brand, too.But most interestingly, Chang also confirmed that we wouldn t see the HTC 11 this year, as the report explains: When asked whether there will be an HTC 11 , the exec simply said it won t be named as such this year, so there s a good chance that HTC is still committed to a true flagship device for 2017.The HTC 11 is the long-rumoured sequel to the HTC 10, and was expected to be HTC s flagship smartphone for 2017.However, Chang s comments don t refute the existence of a new flagship, but simply the HTC 11 name itself.

More: Going for a ride?Take one of these iPhone bike mounts with youIt s not as difficult to sort through iPhone armbands as it is to choose protective cases, but there are still a few things you may want to look out for when shopping for one.The TuneBand Go uses two elastic straps to fit around your arm, and four elastic clips to secure the phone in place.The OtterBox Defender case, for example, will not fit, but a slimmer case will.If you want to be certain your phone and case will fit, measure it beforehand.

An interesting phablet with a decent slug of power, the HTC U Ultra's design innovations will intrigue, but the all-new 'AI' component feels far too nascent to be called a killer feature.This is important ergonomically, as a phone of this size – 163 x 80 x 3.6mm although it s effectively 8mm thick when you consider the massive camera protrusion that causes the phone to rock when placed on a table – is a hand-stretcher, wider than the iPhone 7 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge .It s packed with some decent specs too, with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 combined with 4GB of RAM – not flagship level, but more than good enough for most tasks you can think of, if not all.This is an aesthetic choice, and it works in that respect – it just depends whether you like your phones to be lightweight or offer a bit more heft, depending on the price.It s been done before, by LG on the LG V10 and LG V20, but this is the first time we ve seen such an arrangement on a more global device.It s not the easiest to glide your finger over, as it feels like you ll touch the main display, but perhaps that s already been managed out by HTC, as we didn t experience any mis-taps in our hands-on time.

I toppmodellen X2 och mellanmodellen C70 förbättrar kinesiska TCL sitt Quantum Dot-färgfilter i LCD-panelerna.I Samsungs 2017-modeller kallas tekniken QLED, medan TCL kallar den QD.Men principen är densamma: Quantum Dots är små kristallar av nanostorlek som bara ger ifrån sig ljus med en enda våglängd när de träffas av TV:ns LED- ljus.En ultratunn 7,8 mm tjock TV med smal, kantlös design och – enligt TCL själva – det allra mest avancerade inom kvantpricks-material.Ljusstyrkan på 600 nits är inte lika bra som Samsungs 1500–200 nits och lär därför inte heller ge riktigt samma effekt med HDR-videomaterial, där det skarpaste ljuset är vitare än vitt .Å andra sidan befinner sig TCL i en markant lägre prisklass – även om vi i skrivande stund inte vet vad X2 kommer att kosta.

Accessories Image Source: Jose Sanchez/AP/REX/ShutterstockFollowing a lukewarm reaction to the announcement of AirPods and the subsequent release date delay, the skepticism surrounding Apple s wireless earbuds at launch was understandable.It was also misguided, as a new report from research firm Slice Intelligence shows that AirPods were likely responsible for a major uptick in wireless headphone sales over the 2016 holiday season.According to Slice s data, wireless headphones accounted for 75% of all headphone sales online through the month of December.On December 13th specifically which happens to be that day Apple s AirPods finally hit the market , ten times more money was spent on headphones than the pre-holiday average.There is a legitimate argument to be made that wireless headphone sales had been catching up with wired headphone sales in recent months which Slice s data also backs up , but it s hard to deny that AirPods had a major impact last month.

Perlich, chief scientist at analytics firm Dstillery, said, very early on, it was clear that I was good at math.Her father worked an Eastern Bloc research lab, where he was tasked with trying to build a replica of an IBM machine.It was then that she discovered what would be eventually called computer science.Coming to Colorado as an exchange student, she was hooked by a course on artificial neural networks, taught by Andreas Weigend, former Amazon chief scientist.That's where I discovered what is now known as machine learning and predictive learning.She worked at IBM as a research staff member before joining Dstillery in 2010.

The leader shouts, Let s feed him to the sharks, pirate cheers and swords held high and take all his gold more cheers .They re all morons anyway.If you re a voice-activated Internet of Things IoT device, you don t repeat things, but you may transmit them.But all the value adds of having a digital assistant come at a personal price that many privacy advocates — including me — worry may come at a cost much higher than the price of, say, the device you need to access the service.There were traces of blood at the scene, and a coroner later determined that Collins had died of strangulation and partial drowning.The smart water meter installed at Bates house indicated that 140 gallons of water — much more than usual — had been used on the night of Collins death.

As one of the world's most popular, most widely played games, "Minecraft" attracts a large swath of players.Many of these folks are just like you and me — casual, into playing fun games, but maybe not ready to dig in and spend, like, years handcrafting a massive world.And then there's a small section of that massive playerbase that takes the game's creation aspect to stunning heights.Such is the case with the "Kingdom of Galekin," an enormous, incredibly ambitious world that one "Minecraft" player has been building for nearly five years.In both size and detail, the Kingdom of Galekin is insanely impressive.

To the untrained eye, most pills tend to look the same.Hell, even to the trained eye, differences can be slight.It s a problem that Stratio — a company competing in TechCrunch s Hardware Battlefield at CES 2017 — is trying to solve.They ve built a portable device that can identify a pill in seconds.Called the LinkSquare, the device uses an ultra sensitive sensor to detect a pill s optical fingerprint, the unique but consistent way each pill reacts to light.Using the LinkSquare is quite simple.
