Want to try Warp? We just enabled the beta for you

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the United States. It’s a holiday for getting together with family characterized by turkey dinner and whatever it is that happens in American football. While celebrating with family is great, if you use a computer for your main line of work, sometimes the conversation turns to how to setup the home wifi or can Russia really use Facebook to hack the US election. Just in case you’re a geek who finds yourself in that position this…

2017 Pinterest Engineering intern projects – Pinterest Engineering – Medium

Every summer Pinterest welcomes a new class of software engineering interns to our San Francisco HQ. Each intern (or Pintern, as we say) works on an important technical project that directly impacts our product. Pinterns demo their projects weekly in front of the whole company at Friday Q&A, hosted by our co-founders and other leaders across Pinterest. In this post you’ll learn about some of this year’s class and what they built during their internship. Caroline Lo | Stanford University,…

Toyota’s Newest Humanoid Partner Robot » Curious Cat Science and Engineering Blog

Toyota’s Newest Humanoid Partner Robot Posted on November 22, 2017  Comments (0) T-HR3 reflects Toyota’s broad-based exploration of how advanced technologies can help to meet people’s unique mobility needs. T-HR3 represents an evolution from previous generation instrument-playing humanoid robots, which were created to test the precise positioning of joints and pre-programmed movements, to a platform with capabilities that can safely assist humans in a variety of settings, such as the home, medical facilities, construction sites, disaster-stricken areas and even outer…

Screaming Circuits: Power Distribution – To route, or To Plane

Power distribution, on a PC board, can come in a number of forms. The three most common methods are You can route power and ground. You can use surface layer floods. You can use internal planes. After component positioning, you’ll need to look at power and ground distribution. With a two layer board, your options are limited to individually routing power and ground, or using a polygon fill, also called a flood or pour.For simple, low speed…

Towards better understanding of railway ballast

These models have not been able to take into account large portions of the track have been…

How drones are being used in Zanzibar’s fight against malaria

Makame Makame from the Zanzibar Malaria Elimination Programme holds one of the drones used to map malaria vectors. Credit: Andy Hardy On a typically hot and humid July day in Stonetown, the capital of Zanzibar, a gaggle of children, teenagers and the odd parents watched our small drone take flight. My colleagues Makame Makame, Khamis Haji and I had finally found the perfect launch spot. With a high-pitched humming, the drone took to the air. It sounded like a big…

Underwater acoustic localization of marine mammals and vehicles

She was acquiring data from an underwater acoustic communication system using a “rugged” computer, specifically designed to operate reliably in harsh usage environments and conditions. Credit: IMDEA Networks Institute Researchers at IMDEA Networks (Spain) in collaboration with University of Haifa (Israel) have developed an underwater acoustic system for the localization of marine mammals, underwater vehicles and other sound sources in the ocean, using no more than…

Let us have a detailed look at what we can achieve with uKit’s resources and why one should prefer it over…

Biomechanical model could reduce wobbling of pedestrian bridges

The dangerous wobbling of pedestrian bridges could be reduced by using biomechanically inspired models of pedestrian response to bridge motion and a mathematical formula to estimate the critical crowd size at which bridge wobbling begins, according to a study led by Georgia State University.
