A Brooklynite called Matt Richardson has actually developed a working prototype of a bike front lights that makes use of a Raspberry Pi to project his existing taking a trip speed as he rides around the city. Richardson calls it the Raspberry Pi Dynamic Front lights, and it’s one of those jaw-dropping DIY tasks that makes you wonder why this isn’t really something you can buy in a shop yet.
The prototype has a little projector mounted to the handlebars of the bike, which is linked to the Raspberry Pi via HDMI cable television. The projector and the Raspberry Pi are both powered by a USB battery pack. The Raspberry Pi and the battery pack appear to be crudely glued to a triangular piece of wood that is strapped onto the center of the bike, but Richardson states in his video that he’s hoping that future prototypes will combine all the elements into one solitary piece that will be mounted onto the handlebars.
The Dynamic Headlight for now only tasks the speed of the bike, however Richardson is wanting to include all types of fascinating functions to future iterations like GPS and various other “animations and visualizations”.
Someone should get him a few of that Veronica Mars Kickstarter cash, stat.

Everyday street basketball players (and would-be pros) don’t have many tools to quantify their progress. InfoMotion Sports thinks they’re owed more than just a pat on the back, so it’s bringing its 94Fifty smart basketball to everyday hoop fans. Like the existing model for teams, sensors inside the amateur basketball detect the forces involved in a dribble or shot, relaying details such as the throw angle or power through Bluetooth; Android and iOS apps will be available out of the gate. The stats are for more than just bragging rights, too. InfoMotion’s custom software centers on training sessions and competitions, including challenges from seasoned veterans. No matter how hard they play, owners will just have to rest the ball on a Qi wireless charging pad at the end of a session. InfoMotion Sports’ $ 295 asking price will be steep when the 94Fifty arrives in the summer — but it may be one of the better options for amateurs who want to improve the finer points of their game without donning a uniform.

Google’s bi-annual clearness reports are frequently honored for efforts in making police and government monitoring of email and web task more noticeable. As the company’s latest report shows, the regularity of these requests in the US is enhancing quickly, but we might not be getting the complete photo.

a particular information point were precise, it would be impossible to interpret that records point for what it implies for our total business. ” Cook ended his discussion of the problem by outlining that a “ solitary data point is not a great proxy for exactly what ’ s going on. ” The intent was clearly to defuse the capability of supply chain reports to affect expert outlooks on the company and consequently stock price, because the recent episode of these kinds of stories originating from providers are most likely a key part of recent stock rate volatility.

According to a recent paleontology report, birdlike dinosaurs of the genus Oviraptor might have shook their ass feathers like some modern-day birds do to bring in mates. \* comes running \* Thanks for the show men, but actually– the feather shaking wasn’t necessary.
Studying oviraptor fossils, as well as present-day birds and reptiles, and digitally recreating an oviraptor tail helped the team conclude that, like peacocks and turkeys, oviraptors shook their tail feathers to draw in mates.
“You have, I think, a tail that is especially adjusted to flaunt its feathers,” said Scott Persons, research author and doctoral student at the University of Alberta. “Swish it from side to side, flaunt the tail, strike a sinuous position and hold it.”
Any person else feel like reading that was like reading sensual follower nonfiction? No? Just me huh? Well I’m not here to judge, but you all have to be into some seriously freaky-deaky shit if that didn’t provide you a boner.
Thanks to Will, Robert, Nickw22, Tom the Mighty and Michael, who all have fairly regular names for when. No PECKER # 9 or anything.

A White House-ordered probe has exposed no evidence that telecoms business Huawei spotted for the Chinese government, sources tell Reuters. According to 2 individuals obviously knowledgeable about the review, there was absolutely nothing to indicate active scouting, although one source states that “particular parts of government really wished” such proof. This distinguishes sharply with a United States Congressional report released last week, calling both Huawei and ZTE, another major Chinese tech company, a nationwide security risk. The report’s findings have not been announced openly, and White Residence National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden declined to comment. It does not appear to have actually searched for backdoors or other prospective future dangers, a concern of …

STMicroelectronics details pressure sensor in your Galaxy S III, can tell when you’re mountaineering
If you’re the sort to tear down your Galaxy S III, you might have noticed a mysterious STMicroelectronics LSP331AP chip lurking on the motherboard. While we’ve known that it’s a pressure sensor, we now know that it’s a new generation — new enough that ST is just getting to explaining the technology to a mainstream audience. The piezoresistor-equipped MEMS chip tracks altitude through atmospheric pressure with an uncanny knack for precision; it can tell when you’ve crossing between floors, which could be more than handy for future iterations of indoor navigation. Don’t worry if you’re an extreme sports junkie that might push the limits, either. The sensor can do its job at the kinds of pressure you’d normally see when 32,800 feet high or 5,900 feet below sea level, which should keep it working even if you’re checking your phone during a climb up K2 or a HALO skydive. We don’t know if anyone beyond Samsung is lined up to use ST’s pressure sensor in their devices, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it becomes a mainstay for smartphones and outdoor gear in the near future.
This is a 500-pound, six-foot seven-inch Darth Vader cake created by Amanda Oakleaf Cakes, the same folks that made the 300-pound Stormtrooper one earlier this year. Not gonna lie, I probably would have jump-kicked his head off the same way I do my snowmen after they don’t come to life. Even with black magic, WTF!
He was served at the 501st Legion Banquet on Friday night as part of the Star Wars Celebration VI event. In total he weighed just over 500 lbs, stood 6 feet 7 inches tall, and fed 600 hungry Legion members. The most interesting and challenging part of this cake was actually the cape, which by itself was over 100 lbs of our marshmallow fondant, which freely hung from his shoulders five and a half feet above the ground. Also of note is Vader’s light saber, which was a single, solid piece of watermelon flavored poured sugar.Total Ingredients:
2 gallons milk
3.5 cups vanilla
118 cups/ 32 lbs flour
103 cups/ 46 lbs sugar
57 lbs butter
210 lbs of our home-made marshmallow fondant
Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Because I’m thinking F*** I COULD REALLY GO FOR SOME CAKE AND ICE CREAM RIGHT NOW. Instead all I’ve got is some cottage cheese that expired Sunday and the spicy pickle-in-a-bag I’ve been saving for a special occasion. A VERY special occasion, if you catch my drift. I’m talking about my first kiss! I hope it’s a girl.
Hit the jump for shots of the build process and Vader slowly getting chunks cut out of him at the banquet.

Researchers measure 3D objects using just a camera and projector, can tell if you’ve ironed your shirt (video)
For years the projector and video camera have served us well, performing their respective activities. Now, researchers at Japan’s Advanced Industrial Science and Innovation institute are using them together to determine 3D things. By projecting a special pattern onto the subject and then utilizing the camera to “check out” the amount of distortion in the picture, a three-dimensional model can be constructed. This thing is accurate, too, with preciseness down to 1 – 2mm which implies it can easily determine wrinkles in clothing, or also information in hands. The innovation can easily also be scaled to deal with microscopes. The creators state that it can be utilized in computer game (a lot like Kinect), and even for tracking athletes’ movements thanks to its capacity to capture fast-moving pictures– something existing systems can struggle with. Jump past the break to see the tech in action.
