DARPA Contest

130 DARPA Contest
An LS 3 (Legged Squad Support System) robot demonstrates its movement, showing it is designed to accompany soldiers and Marines any place they go on foot, helping to carry their gear, during a demonstration in Homestead, Florida December 20, 2013. The south Florida city is hosting an international Robotics Challenge Trials this weekend, organized by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The competition, for the creation of robots that can respond to natural and man-made disasters, was created following the 2011 Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster in Japan. After the disaster the Pentagon sent robots designed to disarm improvised explosive devices in Iraq to try to help fix problems at the destroyed reactor in areas highly contaminated by radioactive releases where humans could not work.

7 Handy YouTube Tricks You May Not Know

When wanting to watch the latest viral meme, funny video, popular song, or educational video; YouTube is the place we all gravitate to. It is no wonder that YouTube has become, arguably, the most popular and well accepted (by both young and old) video streaming website.

Although Youtube is very popular among the masses, there are few very important (and cool!) tricks that many people don’t know about. Today we will take a look at them.

1. Auto Repeat All Your Favorite Videos

What? YouTube has auto play option? Yes! Is there a catchy song you’re obsessed with? Want to listen to it over and over again? Well, we have all been there.

It’s really not worth it to constantly click replay every single time you want to hear the song again. So what do you do? There is a way to enable the looping feature. Let’s take a look.

Head to YouTube.com and load the video you want to loop.
In the address bar: replace YouTube with InfiniteLooper
It should look similar to this: www.InfiniteLooper.com/watch?v=HvQ4OxXCa7g
Hit enter. This will automatically load the video and begin a loop.

2. Automatic HD Video play

youtube1 7 Handy YouTube Tricks You May Not Know

When you play a YouTube video, most of the time the resolution of the video is 480p or 360p. Low resolution video aren’t too fun. If there is an option for a higher resolution, you should take full advantage of it. But waiting for the video to re-buffer is quite annoying, so in order to stop this from happening, you can change the system settings permanently so that you can watch videos in HD format.

How? All you have to do is simply catch hold of the Magic Actions for YouTube extension (available for Chrome and Firefox only). In this extension, you have to activate the AutoHD option, and select the HD resolution you like.

Now, all of your videos will automatically be played in HD format.

3. Start The Video At A Specific Time

Now this is what you call, ‘the cream of the crop’. You want to share a video with your friend, but you know that the best part is somewhere in the end. What you normally do is, share the complete video with a footnote asking your friend to kindly start the video from 1 minute and 10 seconds. Is there a better way of doing this?

YouTube helps you cut to the chase easily.

Take this URL for example, www.youtube.com/watch?v=HvQ4OxXCa7g

After this URL, all you have to do is add the magic words – #t=01m10s. This sets the starting time of the video at 1 minute and 10 seconds. It should look something like this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=HvQ4OxXCa7g#t=01m10s

Similarly, this process works just the same even when you want to embed a small portion of the video. Simply add the same #t=01m10s in to the original video embed code and then copy paste it on your website. Every time a user hits the play button, the video will automatically start at the specified point. Voila!

Drone Survival Guide

1449 Drone Survival Guide
Our ancestors could spot natural predators from far by their silhouettes. Are we equally aware of the predators in the present-day? Drones are remote-controlled planes that can be used for anything from surveillance and deadly force, to rescue operations and scientific research. Most drones are used today by military powers for remote-controlled surveillance and attack, and their numbers are growing. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) predicted in 2012 that within 20 years there could be as many as 30.000 drones flying over U.S. Soil alone. As robotic birds will become commonplace in the near future, we should be prepared to identify them. This survival guide is an attempt to familiarise ourselves and future generations, with a changing technological environment.

This document contains the silhouettes of the most common drone species used today and in the near future. Each indicating nationality and whether they are used for surveillance only or for deadly force. All drones are drawn in scale for size indication. From the smallest consumer drones measuring less than 1 meter, up to the Global Hawk measuring 39,9 meter in length.
