Japan's transport ministry is to start work on plans to take control of some of the airspace over part of Tokyo after the Japanese government and US military came to terms with new flight routes for Tokyo's Haneda Airport.
The two sides on Wednesday agreed that Japan will control new routes that will pass through part of the US military-controlled airspace in Tokyo.
When the Nintendo Labo was unveiled, Nintendo also showed off various kits and things that users could do with it, such as building their own robots and what not. However it appears that some have taken the Labo and made practical use of it, such as in the case of Kentaro Yoshifuji of Ory Laboratory who used the Labo to control an electric wheelchair.
Yoshifuji has apparently been interested in electric wheelchair technology ever since he was in high school, where he has been working on tech for the mobility device. His latest creation is for a 13-year old who requires a wheelchair to get around due to a heart condition. With the use of the Labo, he created a steering wheel of sorts that allowed the teen to steer himself around using the Switch.
The wired control accessory that Sony promised for the RX0 has arrived, as well as PlayMemories Mobile app update to enable more wireless control options. The CCB-WD1 Camera Control Box allows for more precise synchronization of multi-camera setups ideal for VR capture, and can be used to create effects like 'bullet time.'
The Camera Control Box offers Video Sync for frame-by-frame synchronization between cameras, as well as Time Code sync. Computers running Windows 7/8.1/10 and Macs running OS X 10.11/10.12-10.13 can connect to the Control Box via a web browser where cameras can be named and monitored, and settings can be adjusted. Filenames can be modified to include the camera name which should help streamline post-processing workflow and avoid overwritten files. Multiple pairs of RX0 cameras and Camera Control Boxes allow for up to 100 units in total.
Nikon just released a new version of its camera connectivity app SnapBridge. The new SnapBridge Version 2.0—which is available for both iOS and Android devices starting today—has been redesigned with an easier-to-use interface and a bunch of new features like the ability to register up to five devices, and full-manual control of select cameras.
On the UI side, both the screen design and the menu structure have been updated to be 'more intuitive' and offer direct access to Help functions. The app has also now been equipped with a 'power saving mode' that keeps SnapBridge from draining your smartphone or tablet's battery when you're not connected to a camera (i.e. when it's not in use).
