You probably tape up your own webcam. That's just good, if a little paranoid, personal security. Others don't tape up their webcams. In fact they want you watching them and visiting locales you might never get to visit, or viewing vistas you haven't seen in a decade. So sit back, chill out, and tune into these spectacular real-time sights, all from the comfort of your computer.
Turns out you can make a camera from just about anything. Even a cardboard box with a hole in it. Because the process is so simple (as long as you're not expecting to compete with Hasselblad), it gives creative people a lot of leeway to experiment with the photo-capturing process. Like, say, replacing your lens with thousands upon thousands of straws.
Lady Gaga, who is actually Satan, performed at this year's #PepsiHalftime Superbowl halftime show. Her awesome set was kicked off by a solo in front of a night sky filled with Intel drones, and it looked great.
GoPro hasn't had the best of times recently. First, there was the recall of its malfunctioning Karma drone, which it only just started selling again. Now it appears the company lost a chunk of money last year, to the tune of $US373 ($485) million.
As expected, Snap Inc. (the company formerly known as Snapchat), has filed the paperwork for its initial public offering (IPO). According to the S1 documents in the filing, Snap Inc. is seeking $US3 billion when it goes public and will value itself between $US20 and $US25 billion.
At a tech conference last September, former NYPD commissioner Bill Simmons said that outfitting the department's entire patrol unit (roughly 24,000 officers) with body cameras would be almost impossibly expensive, costing up to "hundreds of millions of dollars". But on Tuesday, the City of New York announced just that: Every NYPD officer will have body cameras by the end of 2019. So what changed?
Video: Mounting a GoPro onto a sword and then watching it chop the hell out of things is awesome, but it isn't as easy as I thought. You can't just tape a camera down on one end of the blade and hope for the best, because the shot will look all wacky. The sword moves too fast so it's all blurry, the camera angle is capturing the wrong thing and everything is bad.
