It’s my first victory at the Emirates and the first clean sheet for Tottenham (at the Emirates),” Pochettino told the club website.“The performance was very solid and at the end we got what we wanted, to be in the semi-finals and now we prepare for Chelsea in the semi-finals.“It was a tough game, a derby, you need to play differently because there are a lot of emotions. It was so competitive. Arsenal have a very good team. The game was very exciting.“It was an amazing victory for us, for our fans. They enjoyed it a lot. A few weeks ago when we lost here they suffered a lot and this is a moment to enjoy.”Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.Spurs will now compete in semi-finals of the competition for the first time since the 2014/15 campaign.Pochettino’s men will face Chelsea in the next round, who ironically were the ones who beat them in the 2015 final.“It’s an important thing to be in the semi-final,” continued Pochettino.“It’s our fifth season and (we’ve been in) four semi-finals. Remember, we played the final against Chelsea (League Cup, 2015), another semi-final against Chelsea at Wembley in the FA Cup (2017) and Manchester United in the FA Cup (2018).“We are close. The effort is massive and the most important thing is to be there, competing and trying and one day maybe we will get the reward we deserve.”The first leg between Spurs and Chelsea will take place on January 7 at Wembley.last_img read more

Snapchats new Bitmoji Tennis game lets you play like a pro from

first_img 0 Game. Set. Match.  Snapchat To celebrate Wimbledon 2019, Snapchat made a Bitmoji Tennis game that lets you hit the court with your friends.Snapchat started rolling out its own set of games called Snap Games in April. Similar to Facebook games, you can invite your friends to play with you. You can find Bitmoji Tennis, as well as other Snap Games, by opening a chat and then tapping on the rocket ship icon. In a Bitmoji Tennis, you tap the screen to serve the ball and run left and right. When you get close to the ball, your racket swings automatically, and you aim by tilting your phone. The gameplay looks similar to the old Wii tennis game. You can also play a more fearsome game by upgrading your racket (just watch an ad in between games). Last year, the app served up a Snapchat Lens that allowed users to play tennis with Serena Williams’ Bitmoji.Bitmoji Tennis is rolling out today. The game might not be available to everyone yet since it’s new, but users should check back periodically and make sure their app is up to date.Originally published July 1 at 9:11 a.m. PT.Update, at 10:25 a.m. PT: Adds details about game and last year’s Serena Williams Snapchat Lens.

ZeroTouch New kind of infrared touch computer interface w video

first_img Explore further Zero-thickness visual hull sensing with ZeroTouch — ecologylab.net/research/zerotouch/index.html– Interface Ecology Lab exhibiting multifinger ZeroTouch sensing at ACM CHI in VancouverCorrection/Update: Jonathan Moeller should have been credited as the inventor of the ZeroTouch, as he was not just a research assistant on the team. Also, according to Moeller, the “ZeroTouch is a full multi-touch sensor, and it tracks 20+ fingers in its current configuration, meaning pinch and spread gestures are entirely possible, as are many other high degree of freedom gestures.” On display at the Computer Human Interaction (CHI) conference this past week, in Vancouver, British Columbia, the ZeroTouch, invented by Jonathan Moeller, was demonstrated by various students working on the team, which was led by Andruid Kerne.In contrast to other touch type screens, such as those on the iPhone or iPad, the ZeroTouch requires no pressure to be exerted, which can mean less muscle fatigue if used over a long period of time; and because it can be used in more than one format, the ZeroTouch is far more versatile; when placed alone on a table for example, it might be used as a drafting device, replacing far more expensive options; and its application as a virtual painting canvas, while unique, is certainly not it’s most engaging feature; that would have to be the ability to place it over a conventional screen, instantly converting it, very cheaply, into a touchscreen device.

More information: © 2010 PhysOrg.com Also, according to Moeller, the “ZeroTouch is a full multi-touch sensor, and it tracks 20+ fingers in its current configuration, meaning pinch and spread gestures are entirely possible, as are many other high degree of freedom gestures.” He also said in a prior interview that he and his team are working on a three-dimensional device where multiple frames are laid atop one another, that he says, should allow for a much higher degree of dexterity. It should also allow for hovering and 3-D hand manipulation of virtual objects, both of which are not currently available with any touchscreen device. (PhysOrg.com) — Students from Texas A&M have unveiled a project they’ve been working on for the past couple of years they call the ZeroTouch; a device that looks like an empty picture frame and uses embedded LEDs and infrared sensors to translate human movement into computer commands. Taking the technology behind the Microsoft Connect a step further, the ZeroTouch can be laid flat on a table, mounted on a computer screen or hung in the air; each for a completely unique purpose. When laid flat, it can be used as a drawing board, when mounted over a regular computer screen it can be used as a touchscreen device, and when hung in the air it can be used as a virtual canvas for painting.last_img read more

10 Times Animals Were Hilariously Mystified by Modern Technology

first_img They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks — and, indeed, in a tech-obsessed era where gadgets of every stripe abound, our furry friends tend to be both hilariously mystified and a little miffed.The heated rivalry between cats and printers (and toaster ovens and treadmills), for instance, are tales as old as time — though certain amphibians are slowly warming to the idea of mobile gaming. And as drones continue to populate our skies, it might not be regulatory tussles that ultimately ground the devices so much as weary wedge-tailed eagles.From dogs to mice to monkeys to snakes, check out our list of 10 of the most epic encounters between animals and modern technology below:1. Cat costumed as shark chases duck on RoombaThis actually happened: A cat, dressed in a shark costume, riding a Roomba, chases a stray duckling across a Texas woman’s kitchen floor. Suddenly, a pitbull in a hammerhead onesie appears.But perhaps most surreal of all is the fact that Elon Musk shared this video in a Reddit AMA as evidence of the impending perils of AI.We might need a minute to process this…Related: Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking Warn That AI Military Robots Could Ignite the Next Global Arms Race2. Cat pwns printerEvery college student knows the agony of finishing an assignment at the very last minute and waiting, white-knuckled, for the printer to finish printing. This frazzled kitten clearly has places to be, and is having absolutely none of it.3. A most entrepreneurial mouse Entrepreneurs often face problems that are bigger than they are, which seem impossibly out of reach — not unlike this adorable little mouse who stumbles upon a maddeningly king-sized cracker.But the way that the intrepid rodent reflects, shifts strategies and returns to the challenge undaunted should serve as a lesson in resilience for business owners everywhere.4. Eagle destroys drone in aerial smackdown While drones continue to linger in regulation purgatory, there seems to be a consensus about how to deal with the devices among members of the animal kingdom: kill, kill, kill.5. Pawing at thin airJolly, you’re missing the point! When the Jack Russell/Papillon mix is carried onto an escalator by his dad, Dylan, the adorable pooch — unwilling to simply coast back and descend — continues to paw dutifully at thin air.Related: Derby the Dog Can Now Run Free Thanks to His New 3-D Printed Legs6. Singing husky could be the next T-PainLet’s be honest: this Siberian Husky is probably a better singer than you are. With a little help from LaDiDa — a music app that autotunes users’ voices and alters background tracks to match — Mishka is able to hit some fairly impressive high notes, and even articulate heartfelt lyrics like ‘I love you.’Mishka’s debut single, entitled ‘Mishka’s Song,’ is currently available on iTunes.7. African bullfrog is an ace gamerWho says video games don’t encourage violence? After playing a couple rounds of Ants Smasher — a mobile app in which players must virtually squish as many insects as possible with their fingers — this African bullfrog finally gets so fed up that he takes a bite of his owner’s finger.8. Some monkey business at the vending machineNothing’s going to come between this monkey and his tasty vending machine treats. When the machine initially seems to be taking longer than usual to process his grape juice request, he goads it on with some exasperated (and clearly helpful) banging.9. Bringing new meaning to the term ‘computer bug’Rather than running anti-virus software, when Brisbane resident Rod Thompson’s computer had a bug, he simply removed the praying mantis from his MacBook screen and returned it to the wild.10.
