When [new viewers] join a channel they can start having that dialogue with a streamer immediately and for streamers they can have a real-time chat with the folks that are watching them. So it really helps with community growth, allowing that interaction between viewers and streamers to be fostered. This low latency features might be helpful for chat, but they really come into their own when used with Beams interactivity options 2.

This is a pioneering effort in VR, says Annison. While high-profile individuals have been interviewed in this format in the past, no one has shot them as close and in the resolution as we have. Launched last March, Legion M opened its doors to non-accredited investors last summer, subsequently raising $1.2 million, part of which has gone toward stakes in such projects as the upcoming films Colossal (releasing April 7) and The Field Guide to Evil , and the digital TV series Pitch Elevator . It recently opened a second investing round that will allow it to raise up to $50 million (you can buy stock here ). The Icons pilot is Legions first solely produced endeavor, though the company hopes to find producing partners for a subsequent series.

This is going to be the big early debate and I doubt very much that the EU side of this will allow us to talk about the new relationship while they want to sort out bad bill.

A few coins might be passed off and fool the public or retailers but it would likely be few and given the degree of work and very high cost involved, it likely would not be worth the intense effort. The hidden high-security feature which is built into the coin itself is a well kept secret. Informed speculation is that it is some form of physical layer within the coin itself which will allow the coins to be scanned and verified in order to find fakes. Read full story here...

Wi-Fi calling is finally coming to O2 in an attempt to catch up to other UK networks such as Vodafone and Three. Wi-Fi and 4G calling will allow you to make and receive phone calls when you don't have normal phone signal but you have a stable internet connection. It's limited at the moment though - this will only work on the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus , but O2 plans to bring it to more phones very soon. A new way to call Even if you own an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, you may not live in the right place to use it. It's limited to London, Slough and Leeds for the time being, but O2 is hoping to bring it to other cities around the UK as soon as possible. If you meet these criteria, you should soon receive a software update that will allow you to use both Wi-Fi calling and 4G calling. O2 also offers a solution for Wi-Fi calling with an app called Tu Go, but you have to install a separate app to be able to access your calls over the internet, so this new feature will mean it'll work much simpler.

If you want to slim down your dock but dont want to go completely minimal, then you could opt to slim down your dock instead with this mod . Aside from removing the piece of plastic that would otherwise cover the Switchs screen, the dock is pretty identical to the official first-party version. It props the console up so it can remain nice and cool, and doesnt take up too much room in the process. We also like the fact that the designer has gone to the trouble of putting a little Switch logo on the front, which gives this dock a professional air that some of the other mods on this list lack. Nintendo invented the modern D-pad with the original Nintendo Entertainment System, but the Nintendo Switch breaks with tradition by splitting its D-pad into four separate buttons. This decision was made to allow the D-pad to act as face buttons when the left Joy-Con is used as a single controller rather than as a half of a pair, but its an annoying change for those of us that have grown accustomed to the classic design.

Other methods allow participants to control a robotic arm using their thoughts. For Kochevar the process of learning to use the prosthesis started by him practising with a simulation of an arm that appeared on a screen. From there he quickly progressed to using his mind to direct the movements of his arm. During the training he told researchers: "I just think 'out' ... and it goes." But the technology has limitations, including that Kochevar needs to watch his arm at all times in order to control it. This is because he has lost his intuitive sense of his limb's movements and location, known as proprioception, due to the paralysis, according to the scientists. Kochevar became a quadriplegic when he crashed his bicycle into the back of a truck on a rainy day, which was about eight years before the electrodes were implanted in his brain in 2014.

Britain's finance minister, Philip Hammond, said he was confident the country would negotiate a customs arrangement with the EU that would allow for borders to be as frictionless as possible after Brexit. "It is not in the interests of anybody on the continent of Europe to have lines of trucks," Hammond said, adding that he did not recognize some of the large numbers being spoken about in Brussels that some officials say Britain may have to pay to the EU as it exits. Global banks such as Goldman Sachs are considering moving staff out of Britain due to Brexit, and some major companies and banks could use the Article 50 trigger date to update investors on their plans. The Brexit vote triggered the biggest one-day fall in sterling since free-floating exchange rates and the pound is trading at $1.24, around 25 cents below the rate on June 23. At home, May's United Kingdom - a nuclear power with a permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council - is divided and faces strains that could lead to its break-up.

The Syrian government and rebels opposing President Bashar al-Assad have reached an agreement to evacuate civilians from towns besieged by fighters from both sides. For several years, rebels have besieged the northwestern towns of Foua and Kefraya, while pro-government forces laid siege to Zabadani and Madaya near Damascus. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the six-year conflict in Syria, said the evacuations are due to begin April 4. The agreement also put in place a cease-fire in the towns. The Observatory said those areas were calm Wednesday. The four towns have been the subject of previous deals to allow people to leave and to allow in deliveries of humanitarian aid. The United Nations and aid groups have complained at times of a lack of access to the towns despite the agreements. The U.N. has also repeatedly called on all forces in Syria to stop the using sieges as a tactic in their fight.

In terms of footprint it takes up about the same amount of space as a typical smartphone, although at 36.8mm at its thickest point it's not going to slip into every pocket easily. Still, it's a damn sight more portable than your typical high-end drone, and can be stored in your bag without weighing you down, making it an ideal traveling companion. The unit is fashioned from a pearl-like white plastic, and has four arms which house the propeller units. These arms can be folded in when the Dobby isn't in use, but the propellers aren't fixed they swing around even when the arms are docked, so you have to be quite careful when handling the device. On the base of the Dobby you'll find the battery compartment, as well as a sonar sensor and optical flow sensor these allow the device to be used indoors and also permit safe landings and takeoffs, not just from the ground but from the palm of your hand, too.

In a way, leaning on email as opposed to social media may seem like a step backward, but when it comes to mass organizing, the ephemerality of social platforms like Twitter and Facebook is antithetical to the sustained involvement that progressive movements are hoping to foster. The Action Network was cofounded in 2012 by Brian Young, who had previously worked on John Kerrys digital campaign. At the time, campaign structures were really out of date, Young tells Fast Company . They had one owner, who oversaw the website and the email list; any action had to be collectively decided and enacted by this one campaign owner. It wasnt up to the speed and scale of the 21st century. Young envisioned a digital campaign platform that could be collaborative, flexible, and responsivesomething that would be structured and organized at the national level, but still allow for hyperlocal organizing, ironically inspired by the way the U.

indication of one thing we will compromise on, we will allow EU nationals to keep coming here during the course of the Brexit negotiations over the next two years, and they will still be able to enjoy the full rights they currently enjoy. And he said, we cannot have our cake and eat it. Philip Hammond is clearly in the market to compromise. Every negotiation is about give and take on both sides and we have to.

China just registered 14 million people that before this, had never officially existed on record. That's a population size bigger than the state of Illinois, or Pennsylvania. SEE ALSO: China releases surprisingly progressive sex education textbook supporting same-sex couples The 14.35 million were registered over the past four years. Without official IDs, these citizens would have been previously denied access to education and healthcare benefits, Xinhua reports . As for why so many went unregistered, one big factor to blame was the country's one-child policy , which it held for nearly 40 years until this was relaxed in 2015, to allow couples to have two children.
