The Nissan Silvia (sold as the 240SX in the U.S.) is one of the Japanese car manufacturer’s most recognizable vehicles, and in S14-guise, is particularly popular throughout the tuning industry. While you could say the following example has been ‘tuned’, the truth is that it has been so heavily modified that it can barely be considered a Silvia anymore.
Modern vehicles are loaded with safety features and for the majority of motorists, a simple hatch or crossover can tick most, if not all boxes. However, what if you're in the market for a car priced under $15,000 but don't want something new nor a used vehicle with heaps of miles on it? You could take a look at this 2002 Honda Accord Coupe.
Could you see yourself cheering for a robot basketball player in the future? That could happen when they’re capable of hitting three-pointers with nearly 100 percent accuracy. CUE 3 is a 6’3″ humanoid robot from Toyota Engineering Society and it’s capable of hitting free throws with almost pinpoint accuracy.
The AP reports that the robot is capable of computing a three-dimensional image of where the basket is. It then uses the sensors on its torse and adjusts the motors inside its arm and knees to make the shot with just the right angle and propulsion.
When Apple first launched 3D Touch, it was rumored that Android handset makers could be looking to follow suit with 3D Touch like features of their own. However, it seems that 3D Touch never quite took off the way Apple had hoped and for the most part, pressure-sensitive displays are a rare find on Android handsets, if at all.
Now it seems that according to a report from 9to5Google, it looks like with Android Q, Google could be looking to introduce a similar gesture to the Android operating system. Of course, Google can’t magically create pressure-sensitive displays on Android handsets, but rather this will be support for “deep presses”.
