"Computer graphics allow us to use 3D models to build interactive simulations, but the techniques can be complicated," Doug James, a professor of computer science at Stanford University in California, who did not take part in this research, said in a statement. "Davis and his colleagues have provided a simple and clever way to extract a useful dynamics model from very tiny vibrations in video, and shown how to use it to animate an image." … [Read more...] about Beyond ‘Pokémon Go’: Future Games Could Interact with Real Objects

That problem doesn't exist with "Pokémon Go," which doesn't aim for hyper-realistic panoramic views as virtual reality experiences do. Instead, the game is played on tiny smartphone and tablet screens. The screens have to be portable, because the game requires players to be at certain spots to "catch" Pokémon and to battle them against one another. The algorithms are sophisticated enough to put Pokémon in areas suited to the real-world environment — water-dwelling characters near the beach, for example, and nocturnal characters for players out at dusk. … [Read more...] about The Psychology of ‘Pokémon Go’: What’s Fueling the Obsession?
The Ruler form factor is promising, but Ruler’s goal of 1PB per 1U has been beaten by 3.5-inch and ExaDrive already. You can get 2.5PB per U today with 100 x 100 TB ExaDrives in 4U. Also keep in mind that there are over 1 billion 3.5-inch slots in production today. These HDD users will want to move to SSD selectively – and will want to mix-and-match HDD and SSD as part of a hybrid or tiered storage architecture to cost-optimize. 3.5-inch SSDs like ExaDrive enable that – whereas Ruler would require the customer to buy a totally new enclosure/server that is flash-only, making hybrid storage much more expensive and complex to achieve. … [Read more...] about World’s largest SSD to get much bigger and smarter – here’s how
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 hardware and specs Where the Note 20 Ultra is a spec monster, the regular Note 20 has a somewhat shorter spec sheet. It’s smaller, for one thing, with a 6.7-inch 1080p display. As a physical device, the regular Note 20 is also more approachable. It has a bit more curve to its corners (though less to its screen) and shows more bezel overall. The camera bump isn’t like a huge mesa on the back of the device, either. It’s still a very large, fairly wide phone by any standard, but it isn’t just a smaller Note 20 Ultra; it has its own design language. … [Read more...] about The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is Samsung’s new spec king
