"Every morning, I go to school, put a rainbow keychain on my backpack, and become a proud queer student. Every night, I put the keychain back in my bag and go home to a family that would disown me or take everything away from me if they knew who I really was. There are so many painful details that add up far too fast, but at the end of the day, the point is that I'm living two different lives, and they're only separated by a couple of streets."View Entire Post ›

YouTube Fortnite is rolling out an update on Tuesday that includes a new setting that filters out “confrontational” emotes. The v29.30 update will let players “choose not to see” the following emotes: “Laugh It Up”, “Take the L”, “Whipcrack”, and “Make it Plantain.” The four emotes won’t exactly be hidden per se, they’ll appear as still images in the game — but players performing them won’t dance and they won’t play music. Players can opt to only see these emotes from friends, or hide them altogether. Though Fortnite has hundreds of different emotes, this group of four are controversial because of how and when players will use them. Fortnite players will often play emotes like...

Image: Ludo StudioIf viewers felt that after the 28-minuteBluey finale “The Sign”—and its unannounced season three coda episode “Surprise,” which dropped on Disney+ last night—that there was a sense of finality to the beloved animated series, it was in a way intentional.Some fans feared that when the “For Sale” sign went up at the Heeler home at the end of season three—or because the last moments of “Surprise” (small spoiler alert here) jumped into the future with a grown-up Bluey and her kid showing up at her parents’ home—that it could mean the Heelers were going away.Don’t stress too much: the show will return in some form, but that’s still to be determined by the creatives at...

After many tense months, it seems that thanks to a gaggle of brilliant engineering talent and a lucky break the Voyager 1 spacecraft is once more back in action. Confirmation came on April 20th, when Voyager 1 transmitted its first data since it fell silent on November 14 2023. As previously suspected, the issue was a defective memory chip in the flight data system (FDS), which among other things is responsible for preparing the data it receives from other systems before it is transmitted back to Earth. As at this point in time Voyager 1 is at an approximate 24 billion kilometers distance, this made for a few tense days for those involved.
The firmware patch that got sent over on April 18th contained an...

After the success of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and the Rock’s Jungle Cruise, and the mixed reception to last year’s Haunted Mansion, there are plenty more projects based on other rides in development. Many have lingered in the pipeline for years—like Jon Favreau’s Magic Kingdom, which predates The Mandalorian—and there are also more recently announced films, like a film based on Figment the chaotic imaginary purple dragon, coming from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant...

Photo by Vjeran Pavic / The Verge DolphiniOS, a fork of the popular Dolphin emulator for Nintendo Wii and GameCube games, has confirmed that it’s not coming to the Apple App Store even though emulators are now supported. In a post on Friday, the developer behind the emulator says it’s because Apple doesn’t allow DolphiniOS to use its underlying performance-boosting tech.
As explained by developer OatmealDome, DolphiniOS — along with other Wii and GameCube emulators — uses something called Just-in-Time (JIT). This is a compiler that “translates” the GameCube and Wii’s PowerPC-based code into a language other devices can understand, making emulations run a lot smoother. Even with the recent App...

In the same press release, Amazon also announced that the company is launching a new Prime Air location in Tolleson, Arizona. The new location is expected to provide “same-day” deliveries to residents in the West Valley Phoenix metro area. Amazon expects to begin operations in Arizona starting later this year.

Anker’s versatile charging orb functions as both a power strip and a StandBy-ready phone stand. | Image: Nathan Edwards / The Verge A cluttered desk can easily hijack your focus, which is why Anker’s Qi2-certified MagGo Magnetic Charging Station (8-in-1) can prove helpful. It’s small, but it can quickly clear up space by replacing a good chunk of your chargers while doubling as a sturdy phone stand. It normally runs $99.99, but now until 4:45PM PT / 7:45PM ET on April 28th, you can pick up the charger at its all-time low of $69.99 ($30 off) at Amazon and Anker (with promo code WS7DV2GPRWSL).

Most reverse engineering projects we see around here have some sort of practical endpoint in mind. Usually, but not always. Reverse-engineering a 40-year-old cable modem probably serves no practical end, except for the simple pleasure of understanding how 1980s tech worked.
You’ll be forgiven if the NABU Network, the source of the modem [Jared Boone] tears into, sounds unfamiliar; it only existed from 1982 to 1985 and primarily operated in Ottawa, Canada. It’s pretty interesting though, especially the Z80-based computer that was part of the package. The modem itself is a boxy affair bearing all the hallmarks of 1980s tech. [Jared]’s inspection revealed a power supply with a big transformer, a main logic...

In Las Vegas today, construction began on a train that would get travelers from Rancho Cucamonga in San Bernardino County to the Vegas Strip in a little more than two hours. A company called Brightline West is building the train, which is expected to travel nearly 200 miles per hour, says LA Times staff writer Noah Bierman . Once completed, it will be the first true high-speed train in the United States. The privately-owned company previously constructed a higher-speed train between Miami and Orlando in Florida, much like Amtrak’s Acela, which connects cities across the eastern seaboard. A one-way ticket is expected to eventually cost $200 for the Rancho Cucamonga-Las Vegas train, which might be more...

Musician and rapper Erick Elliott , a.k.a Erick the Architect, began his career with the New York psychedelic hip-hop trio Flatbush Zombies, but over the last several years, he stepped out on his own and moved to Los Angeles. His new solo album, I’ve Never Been Here Before , ranges from hip-hop to house to psychedelic soul, and features big-name collaborators like James Blake and Parliament Funkadelic’s George Clinton. The tracks tell the story of his introduction to music as a child and his family’s role in the journey. “Each [family member] had their own special taste in music. And I was always listening. And I was like, ‘Man, I want to be like that one day.’ And as much as I hid it from my...

What if there was some magic device that could somehow scan all your LEGO and tell you what you can make with it? It’s a childhood dream come true, right? Well, that device is in your pocket. Just dump out your LEGO stash on the carpet, spread it out so there’s only one layer, scan it with your phone, and after a short wait, you get a list of all the the fun things you can make. With building instructions. And oh yeah, it shows you where each brick is in the pile.
We are talking about the BrickIt app, which is available for Android and Apple. Check it out in the short demo after the break. Having personally tried the app, we can say it does what it says it does and is in fact quite cool.

Writing for Hackaday can be somewhat hazardous. Sure, we don’t often have to hide from angry spies or corporate thugs. But we do often write about something and then want to buy it. Expensive? Hard to find? Not needed? Doesn’t really matter. My latest experience with this effect was due to a recent article I wrote about the AM2900 bitslice family of chips. Many vintage computers and video games have them inside, and, as I explained before, they are like a building block you use to build a CPU with the capabilities you need. I had read about these back in the 1970s but never had a chance to work with them.
As I was writing, I wondered if there was anything left for sale with these chips. Turns out you can...

Wireless charging is pretty convenient, as long as the transmitter and receiver speak the same protocol. Just put the device you want to charge on the wireless charger without worrying about plugging in a cable. Yet as it turns out, the disadvantages of wireless charging may be more severe than you think, at least according to tests by iFixIt’s [Shahram Mokhtari] and colleagues. In the article the basics of wireless charging are covered, as well as why wireless charging wastes a lot more power even when not charging, and why it may damage your device’s battery faster than wired charging.
The inefficiency comes mostly from the extra steps needed to create the alternating current (AC) with wireless coupling...
