The challenge of movement Another important consideration is movement. We're hopeful for virtual eeality, but it's still relatively new and very inaccessible to many gamers, Steve Spohn says. If you have a severe physical disability, you aren't able to move in the ways that developers intend you to move to play the games. From the restrictions of a tethered device, through to games and experiences that require a certain level of movement to be played effectively, there are a lot of challenges that developers need to overcome. Spohn adds: For many VR games you have to be able to rotate in a circle, to be able to duck and lean, and use both arms. Even sitting in a wheelchair with full upper body mobility can be a problem, because you're not sitting at the height developers made the game for. Why its still too early to tell VR is still in its infancy, so its difficult to tell whether it will live up to its promise for users both with and without disabilities.

LONDON: Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard will return to coach at their academy next month, the Premier League outfit said on Friday. Gerrard had been widely tipped to join the Anfield coaching staff following his decision to leave LA Galaxy after 18 months with the MLS team. The 36-year-old, who made 710 appearances for Liverpool before joining the Galaxy in 2015, will take up a full-time role at the Reds' Kirkby youth complex from February. Merseyside-born Gerrard spent 17 years with Liverpool having graduated from the academy, captaining his hometown team to Champions League glory in 2005 and FA Cup success a year later. "It feels like completing the circle; returning to the place where professionally it all began. However, this isn't a decision based on emotion - it's about what I can offer and contribute to Liverpool," said Gerrard, who also won the UEFA Cup and three League Cups in his glittering Liverpool career.

We expect the telephoto lens will be redesigned to support OIS in the telephoto CCM, with challenges likely coming from: (1) the need to increase the image circle of the telephoto lens, which will lead to longer calibration time and a more complex assembly processes; and (2) a redesign of the telephoto lens, as an increased image circle will result in degraded photo quality around the corners." As per earlier reports, it's believed that the 4.7in iPhone 8 will not feature a dual-camera, meaning the 5.5in iPhone 8 Plus model and the supposed third premium model with curved edge-to-edge OLED display will both feature dual-camera tech, though whether both feature the dual-OIS remains to be seen.

Outlook for the first 100 days: Trump is expected to start unraveling Obama's environmental legacy as early as his first day. EPA could begin the administrative process to withdraw its carbon rules for power plants, while many conservatives would like to see Trump pull the U.S. out of global climate pacts, including Paris, as soon as possible. Trump could also eliminate the Obama administration's methods of calculating the economic benefits of greenhouse-gas reductions, as well as efforts to cut carbon pollution from the federal government's operations. Obstacles: Trump may not believe in climate change, but his inner circle does not appear to have consensus on the issue, and much could depend on whether Ivanka Trump’s concerns sway her father. It could take years for EPA to go through the full administrative process needed to kill its major Obama-era carbon rules.

Five-seat baby SUV is set to take on the likes of the Audi Q3 with a sub30k starting price; second sighting comes from the Arctic Circle The Jaguar E-Pace baby SUV has been spotted for the second time one week after Autocar posted the first pictures of a full-bodied mule online. Sitting below the F-Pace and similar in size to the Range Rover Evoque , the five-seat E-Pace will rival models such as the Audi Q3 when it's unveiled in early summer. The new SUV is set to use the Land Rover Discovery Sport ’s steel platform and could be built alongside that model at the brand’s Halewood plant. Comment: Why the E-Pace could be Jaguar's best seller First spotted near JLR’s Gaydon HQ and more recently seen in the Arctic Circle, the E-Pace resembles the F-Pace, with both the grille and roofline reminiscent of those of its larger sibling. It will also feature the latest development of Jaguar’s Incontrol Touch Pro infotainment system and showcase the firm’s improving interior quality.
