An Android phone minus the phone plus two giant cameras. | Image: Adi Robertson / The Verge Xreal is one of the few companies trying to sell mass-market augmented reality headsets without an existing big tech empire. But its latest product isn’t a pair of glasses; it’s a phone-sized Android tablet designed to keep you using them. At last week’s Augmented World Expo (AWE) the company announced the Beam Pro, a combination battery, app repository, and 3D video recorder. It’s a pragmatic solution to a very obvious problem — even if, at first glance, I wish it were weirder.
Xreal’s glasses — the Air 2 and Air 2 Ultra — have generally required some kind of third-party device like a phone, laptop, or...

“Fewer than one percent of people who get the flu every year get tested, in part because most tests require trained personnel and expensive equipment. Now researchers have developed a low-cost paper strip test that could allow more patients to find out which type of flu they have and get the right treatment.  The test, developed by a team from the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and Princeton University, and supported by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, uses CRISPR to distinguish between the two main types of seasonal flu, influenza A and B, as well as seasonal flu subtypes H1N1 and H3N2. It can also identify strains that resist antiviral treatment, and with further work, could...

“Microsoft, Google and start-ups including Silicon Valley-backed Sarvam AI and Krutrim — founded by Bhavish Aggarwal of Indian mobility group Ola — are all working on AI voice assistants and chatbots that function in languages such as Hindi and Tamil. The tools are aimed at fast-growing Indian industries, such as the country’s large customer service and call centre sector. India has 22 official languages, with Hindi the most widespread, but researchers estimate the languages and dialects spoken by its 1.4bn people rise into the thousands. Google on Tuesday launched its Gemini AI assistant in nine Indian languages. Microsoft’s Copilot AI assistant is available in 12 Indian languages, and the company...

Photo by Matt Thomas / San Diego Padres / Getty Images Guy Beahm, better known by his streamer persona Dr Disrespect, said he was banned from Twitch four years ago due to private messages he sent to a minor that “sometimes leaned too much in the direction of being inappropriate.”
Beahm shared details of the ban in a lengthy post to X, marking the first time he’s directly addressed the reason for his removal.
“Everyone has been wanting to know why I was banned from Twitch, but for reasons outside of my control, I was not allowed to say anything for the last several years,” Beahm posted on X. “Now that two former twitch employees have publicly disclosed the accusations, I can now tell you my side of...

Recently [Stefan] of CNC Kitchen took a gander at using his gaggle of 3D printers to try injection molding (IM). Although the IM process generally requires metal molds and specialized machinery, 3D printers can be used for low-volume IM runs which is enough for limited production runs and prototyping before committing to producing expensive IM molds. In the case of [Stefan], he followed Form Labs’ guidance to produce molds from glass-infused Rigid 10K resin (heat deflection temperature of 218 °C). These molds are very rigid, as the ceramic-like noise when [Stefan] taps two together attests to.

Gif: MGMIt’s halfway to Christmas and even so you’re not ready to behold the confoundingly chaotic trailer for Red One. The Chris Evans and Dwayne Johnson holiday action movie directed by Jake Kasdan (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) is set for release on November 15 from Amazon MGM.Starting off with a swole Santa Claus (J.K. Simmons) lifting weights (to keep those cookie calories down, presumably) with the help of the commander of the ELF Task Force—played by Johnson as “The Rock if he were Santa’s bodyguard”—isn’t much of a stretch for an action movie, sure. It’s more the incomprehensible series of plot slop that follows, which leaves us wondering what this is movie trying to be, outside of...

Image: Jon Porter / The Verge With RGB lighting and customizability, most mechanical keyboards are way more fun to type on than your regular old keyboard. Those perks typically come at a cost, though — but not as much today because Epomaker’s TH80 Pro is on sale at Amazon for $62.99 ($27 off). That’s a new all-time low price on the TH80 Pro and is available on keyboards with Gateron switches in select colors — including black, red, and yellow — as well as with Budgerigar switches. If you’re on a budget, the Epomaker TH80 Pro is our top affordable mechanical keyboard pick.

Image: LegoEarlier this year, Lego and Lucasfilm lifted the lid on Lego Star Wars: Rebuild the Galaxy, a what-if style Lego series that takes the already high-zaniness of many of the animated Lego specials and cranks everything up even further, in a world where heroes become villains, vice versa, and, of course, there’s Jar Jar being a more literal Phantom Menace. Now, the series is getting a few Lego sets to go with the launch—and Jar Jar is along for the ride.Today Lego revealed two Rebuild the Galaxy Lego sets due to arrive in August, a month ahead of the miniseries’ arrival on Disney+ September 13. They’re both pretty pricey sets, even for Star Wars. The first, retailing for $110, is a traditional...

Pourquoi oublions-nous nos souvenirs d’enfance ? Voyage dans le dédale de l’amnésie infantile
Nos premières années de vie, très généralement, restent inaccessibles à notre mémoire d’adulte. Les neurosciences explorent cette intrigante « amnésie infantile », revisitant un concept forgé par Freud.
My tuppence :
La mémoire est photographique et la prétendue « amnésie infantile » est un refoulement. Même enfouis, ces souvenirs demeurent accessibles par l’anamnèse (la remémoration durant la cure). Être un enfant est une alternance brutale de joies et de peines, n’a-t-on pas noté que les enfants pleurent souvent, ou bien imagine-t-on qu’ils pleurent...

One of the joys of the UK’s Electromagnetic Field hacker camp lies in the junk table, where trash turns to treasure in the blink of an eye. This year I returned relatively unscathed from my few days rifling through the tables,but I did snag a few pieces. One of them is a wired telephone, which would be a fairly unremarkable find were it not for its flip-up LCD screen and QWERTY keyboard.
My prize is a 2002 Amstrad E-m@iler Plus, one of a series of internet-equipped telephones from the British budget electronics company. The device itself and the story behind it make for a fascinating tale of a dotcom-era Internet flop, and a piece of hardware that could almost tempt today’s hackers.

Distance Technologies, established by the co-founders of enterprise headset maker Varjo, showed off its design last week at Augmented World Expo in Long Beach, California.

Quelle participation aux élections en France ? Si le scrutin présidentiel reste de loin le plus mobilisateur (74 % de participation au premier tour de l’élection présidentielle de 2022), les législatives et les européennes de ces dernières années ont attiré environ la moitié des électeurs français aux urnes. L’infographie ci-dessus compare l’évolution du taux de participation aux élections européennes en France depuis le premier scrutin au suffrage universel direct en 1979, à celui du premier tour des législatives françaises depuis le début de la Ve République en 1958.

Photo: DisneyRyan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, and director Shawn Levy discuss the long, difficult road to a third Deadpool moviein a new interview with Vanity Fair. According to Reynolds, “These movies just swallow lives whole. In a normal movie, you work your ass off. But on a movie like this, you forsake a lot of things that you maybe took for granted: sleep, seeing your family, the myth of the present father. There’s a lot of sacrifice.”Reynolds knew he wanted to reunite with Levy after working together on 2022's The Adam Project, but struggled to find a hook to justify a third Deadpool movie.

If you don’t happen to have a traditional stone-floored domed clay oven on hand, it can be surprisingly challenging to make a pizza that’s truly excellent. Your domestic oven does a reasonable job, but doesn’t really get hot enough. Even a specialist pizza oven such as [Yvo de Haas]’ Ooni doesn’t quite do the best possible, so he’s upgraded it with the SpinMeister — a system for precise timing of the heat, and controlled rotation of the cooking stone for an even result.
The spinning part is handled by a stepper motor, driving a hex shaft attached to the bottom of the stone through a chuck. The rotating bearing itself is from an aftermarket stone rotator kit. The controller meanwhile is a smart 3D...
