Lifesaver drones will soon be auto-detecting sharks and shouting at swimmers from above

Drone technology seems to be exploding in two different directions: camera drones for aerial videography, and drones with AI deep learning capabilities for a wide range of different commercial and industrial purposes. The ability to get up high, take in a huge amount of visual and spatial information, and then have a GPU crunch it and do a lot of the work identifying objects, classifying them and deciding what to do about them holds great potential…

The Flash: "Elongated Journey Into Night" Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.
The Flash seems to be in decent shape right now. It’s lighter and sillier than it’s been in a while and finally breaking the mold with its main, season-long villain. But I wish I could muster up a better adjective than “decent.” There’s just something missing with the show’s current direction, and nothing about this guest star-driven episode did much to change that.
“Elongated Journey Into Night” introduced two new characters to the Arrowverse, one of whom seems like a fun but forgettable one-off guest star and the other who promises to play a big role in the unfolding Thinker conflict. The former is Gypsy’s superhumanly cranky father, Breacher (Machete’s Danny Trejo). The latter is Ralph Dibny (The Young and the Restless’ Hartley Sawyer).

American Horror Story: "Drink the Kool-Aid" Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.
As we creep closer toward the end of this Cult season we must ask ourselves, almost constantly: How much is Kai in control?
When Kai was trying to have a “messiah baby” last week with his sister using that weird made-up sex ritual, it felt like it was a test for Winter. And while Kai, most of the time, has a clear-headed nature and acute self-awareness, there are also times when he seems to be going totally mad. His tears at the end of “Drink the Kool-Aid,” when he was confronted with the lie that he was Oz’s dad, felt genuine – as if he really did believe in the “messiah baby” (that he’d seemingly made up in last week’s episode). So is Kai just full of s*** at all times or is he actually succumbing to his own madness and starting to buy into the lies he’s spreading?

PUBG Creator: We’ve Shown You Don’t Need Massive Marketing Budgets ‘To Sell a Lot of Copies’

Speaking to IGN at PAX Aus, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds creative director Brendan Greene has discussed how PUBG has reaped a huge amount of success without a massive advertising budget.
“We published on Steam, you know?” said Greene. “And that’s allowed us to sell millions of copies without having any marketing budget essentially, or store copy…. We have shown that you don’t need necessarily the same marketing or PR budget as a triple A game to really sell a lot of copies.”
According to Greene, prior to the release of Battlegrounds on Steam Early Access, the team were hoping to sell “maybe five million copies, first year.”
“We passed that in a few months and now we’re at 15+ Continue reading…

Why Legends of Tomorrow's Halloween Parody Was a Success

Full spoilers for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow episode “Phone Home” continue below.
It looks like Stranger Things isn’t the only show embracing all that ’80s goodness, as DC’s Legends of Tomorrow continues its third season by delivering the perfect Halloween treat. Remember those pesky Dominators from last season’s crossover? Well, they’re back, but in a different way than you might expect.
With the team fearing for Ray’s life, they journey back in time to Ivy Town circa 1988 to see what kind of time aberration could have caused this. To their surprise, it was a baby Dominator! The cute little guy, aptly named Gumball, perfectly parodies Steven Spielberg’s 1982 classic film, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. The writers did an incredible job embracing the film, while also crafting a memorable episode that shines a new light on Ray Palmer’s backstory.

Attosecond-scale X-ray laser pulse is the shortest controlled event ever created by humans

The microscopic world of atoms and electrons is still shrouded in mystery. Not just because it’s tiny in physical scale, but also because everything that happens down there happens incredibly fast. To better understand molecular events, scientists use short-pulse X-ray lasers to freeze moments in time with precise snapshots. Now, researchers at ETH Zurich have managed to shorten the pulse of an X-ray laser down to 43 attoseconds – which the team says is the shortest controlled event ever created by humankind…
