A bit of code and integration of a SN754410 H-bridge motor driver the Arduino doesn't supply enough current to [Roboro]'s robot's motors and the little robot's ready for its test drive. [Roboro]'s suggested improvements are servo steering for the robot, upgrading to the HM10 module, more sensors to take advantage of the other buttons on the wheel, and a camera because who doesn't love some good ol' fashioned FPV racing ?

7-inch version of the tablet. We'd expect similar pricing this year, but there may be a few differences, and it'll likely be even more if you go for a larger storage size model. Design It looks like Samsung is quietly going for a new design language, stating that the Galaxy Tab S3 would look like a 'brother or sister' to the Galaxy phone range. And it does display some similarities to the current phones: there's a glass back with a metal rim around the outside, and it feels like the tablet is made with some higher-end materials. It's rather light at 429g, which doesn't make it feel as expensive as it might, combined with the thin 6mm depth, but overall it does feel like a classy design. The large bezels remain, with the fingerprint scanner on the bottom of the display in the Galaxy-phone-style lozenge. It could be harder to activate there on a tablet than on a phone, but the whole device is quite compact.

The United Nations Envoy for Syria says additional rounds of Syria talks are needed before the negotiating sides agree on a deal. Staffan De Mistura made the comment on the fourth day of the UN-mediated talks in Geneva. He said the current sessions give both sides a deeper shared understanding and pave the way for future meetings. The talks that kicked off on Thursday are expected to go beyond the scheduled deadline of March 5. There’s been no report on the outcome of the negotiations yet. Sources close to the negotiating sides say no significant progress has been made. Representatives of the Syrian government and the foreign-backed opposition are in attendance. The previous rounds of U-N-brokered negotiations failed to produce tangible results. John Steppling Author and Commentator Watch Live: http://www.presstv.com/live.html Twitter: http://twitter.

What's better than 1 string of LED lights? 96. That's how many. Each string of the 96 has 60 ws2812b LEDs, for a total of 5760 individually addressable RGB LEDs. That's not the cool part of [jaymeekae]'s Space Tunnel installation, the cool part is that they're interactive . Starting out with some PVC piping, dark cloth was used as a backdrop and the LED strips were attached to it. Several power supplies are used to supply the voltage necessary and each strip controlled by FadeCandy chips which connect to, in this case, a Windows PC via USB. Initially, computer power supplies were used, but they couldn't supply the current necessary. [jaymeekae] used them for the first installation, but switched to better power supplies for further installations. Once the lights were up and powered, [jaymeekae] started work on the interface to control them. Starting with a used bureau, [jaymeekae] cut out a section for the touchscreen, and installed the controlling computer in the bottom half.

The first image of the Velar shows a familiar design language, as seen on the existing Range Rover models, but with far smoother lines than previously. Whereas current models have numerous angular lines at the rear end, the Velar has a continuous sweep from the sides to the rear of the bodywork, creating a sleek, sporty silhouette. A circling line of chrome further accentuates this continuation and the relatively small rear window further enhances the coupé-like styling, making the model less boxy than the current Range Rovers. A panoramic sunroof also suggests an airy cabin and a glimpse of the infotainment system, showing two screens — one wide and central and one behind the wheelclosely reflects the interior shown on Jaguar’s all-electric I-Pace SUV seen at the LA motor show in November last year. Land Rover design boss Gerry McGovern said: “We call the Velar the avant-garde Range Rover.

One factor here is that the Houthi-Saleh forces may not have had much need (so far) to import weapons from abroad because they already have access to a large part of Yemen's national stockpile. The report noted: The data indicate that the legitimate [Saudi-backed] government has potentially lost control of more than 68 per cent of the national stockpile during the conflict. The panel has been unable to determine the size of the national stockpile before the current hostilities, and thus it is not yet possible to realistically estimate for how long the weapons and ammunition will sustain Houthi or Saleh forces in combat until they need major external resupply. On the question of external supplies, the report considered various ways arms might be smuggled into Yemen from Iran. It discounted the possibility of delivery by air (since the Saudi coalition controls the skies) and identified three possible maritime supply routes.

After failing to sell the car in Road & Track in September of 1960 Dean decided to paint the car in 50 coats of his own Special Pearl Gold Paint. Jeffries ended up selling the car to a man who was, indeed, an outlaw: Albert Nussbaum, of the FBI's Top 10 Most Wanted fame. Nussbaum, who was wanted for murder and robbery at the time, drove the Kustom Karrera across the country to Florida with the FBI hot on his trail (they paid Dean shortly after the sale). Once located, the FBI quickly surrounded the house Nussbaum was hiding out in, but he managed to escape while leaving the Porsche sitting in the driveway, where it remained for several years. After Nussbaum's brief ownership, the car entered a low point in its life as it bounced around a few owners who performed their own modifications, and was even involved in a small accident. Mercifully, the car found its current custodian, Jack Walter, in 1971, and he cared for it well and brought the car back to its original condition.

No, it’s not slick like, I dont know, a current-gen M5: the clutch is horribly vague and there is a smidge of looseness to the body - nowhere near as wobbly as the Sierra’s, though. Oh, and the steering in Number 820 (1100 were proposed, but only 950 Lotus Carltons - and Opel Lotus Omegas - were ever made; a legacy of its whopping £48,000 price tag and an imploding economy) had a degree of play in the steering box, just around the straight-ahead. Considering it’s age and Vauxhall’s original press car - so has been tracked, dragged and drifted for its entire 32,000-mile life - we can forgive it that, can’t we? The six-speed ZF S6-40 Corvette ZR1 gearbox, which was drafted in to cope with the Lotus’s colossal torque, has a stupidly long throw, but the gate itself is a darn sight more positive than the manual F-Type S’s I'd driven earlier that week, and get it fully warmed through and it’s surprisingly slick.

These are the latest pictures of Range Rover's forthcoming petrol-electric hybrid SUVs, which could go on sale in 2018 Plug-in hybrid versions of the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport have been spotted testing ahead of a possible launch in 2018. The current fourth generation Range Rover had some mild updates for the 2017 model year, but these are the latest pictures of forthcoming hybrid models which could be introduced to the range with more updates for 2018. The test mules get a new front bumper and grille, which is believed to house the charging port, while the lights at the front and back are also a new design. Warning stickers on the front and rear of the car indicate that these are electrified models. It's thought that the Range Rover is powered by a hybrid unit which incorporates a 295bhp four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine and a lithium-ion battery, which is stored under the boot floor.

I see dead people. Its one of the most famous lines in cinematic history, and something well all soon be dragging up as a tired, repetitive joke whenever we leave the movie theater. No, The Sixth Sense isnt headed for an unwarranted remake, but visual effects are getting to the point where humans can be digitally recreated in such a way that they wont shatter our all important suspension of disbelief whenever they pop up on screen. Were not just talking effects that will help current stars more realistically look like theyre performing dangerous stunts. Industry experts have suggested it will increasingly be used to bring deceased actors and actresses back from the VIP party in the sky and onto the big screen once again. Ahead of Oscars weekend, we sat down with Simon Robinson, co-founder of The Foundry, the British software house whose creations have been used to craft special effects in every Academy Award Best Visual Effects nominee from the past six years, to discuss the changing face of visual effects, and, more importantly, the faces the technology is changing.

It gives Noah [Hawley] the freedom to do what he wants to do. Because we play with so many different timelines, and we rebooted and not really rebooted and all that, we felt like, OK, we’re going to throw it out there and hope the fans accept it." This echoes what John Landgraf - the president of FX, the network behind Legion - told Screenrant about the show in January 2016: "It’s not in the continuity of those films in the sense the current X-Men films take place in a universe in which everybody on planet Earth is aware of the existence of mutants. The series Legion takes place in a parallel universe, if you will, in which the US government is in the early days of being aware that something called mutants exist but the public is not. I wouldnt foresee characters moving back and forth [between the films and the show] because they really are parallel universes.

A former Trump staffer went on record to say how they had to baby him. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you why Trump is a child. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://www.tytnetwork.com/go “President Donald Trump’s former campaign staffers claim they cracked the code for tamping down his most inflammatory tweets, and they say the current West Wing staff would do well to take note. The key to keeping Trump’s Twitter habit under control, according to six former campaign officials, is to ensure that his personal media consumption includes a steady stream of praise. And when no such praise was to be found, staff would turn to friendly outlets to drum some up — and make sure it made its way to Trump’s desk. "If candidate Trump was upset about unfair coverage, it was productive to show him that he was getting fair coverage from outlets that were persuadable," said former communications director Sam Nunberg.
