Building the future of transportation is, by definition, a ton of work. You can’t just start cranking out production cars in your backyard, or launching hyperloops, or digging holes. You need entire teams of engineers, reams of designers, visionaries and scientists and bureaucracy experts to boot. This week, we prepped to cover the annual, ultra fancy Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, where the greatest car buffs get ready to show off their latest dreams. And we got a few interesting peeks into their future roadmap. Porsche restorers imitating Formula 1 cars; electric enthusiasts envisioning future elegance; giant carmakers wondering how 3-D printing fits into manufacturing. Yes, people made their labor evident this week. Plus, we learned more about Tesla’s legal struggz, Drive.ai’s plot to teach robocars how to communicate with humans, and a radar company that wants autonomous vehicles to start looking down. It’s been a week! Let’s get you caught … [Read more...] about This Week in the Future of Cars: Make It Work!
Cars how stuff works
Social Animals, the feature-length debut from documentary director Jonathan Ignatius Green, stars three kids: self-taught New York street photographer Humza Deas, dancer and aspiring fashion brand mogul Kaylyn Slevin, and Ohio high school student Emma Crockett, who stands in for the everyman teen. They talk about their lives, which means they talk about Instagram — how it’s helped them, how it’s harmed them, what the rules are, what people can use it for, why they might care. That’s it! It starts with a simple, unpretentious concept, and the result is a nuanced and judgment-free look at how life works for kids in the digital age. To lay out the story of a self-made artist, Green shows Deas sitting on a twin-sized bed while subway cars rattle past his bedroom. Two Canon cameras on the windowsill are the only notable objects in the room. To illuminate Slevin’s business instincts, he shows her smiling politely and lightly rolling her eyes while her father … [Read more...] about How the director of Social Animals made a documentary about teens and Instagram that doesn’t suck
It seemed like it just might work. We got “Father” Joseph Seed into the handcuffs. The Whitehurst Sheriff, the U.S. Marshal — we got the Eden’s Gate cult leader out of his so-called church. Sure, his followers were yelling at us. But we made progress. We even got to our chopper. Then they started throwing rocks. And as we tried to get Seed into the chopper and into the air, his followers showed just how devoted they were to their beloved Father. They threw themselves at us, at the helicopter. They tried to get inside and rescue him. It was chaos. I almost thought they’d start foaming at the mouth, they were in such a craze. Then our chopper crashed. I hung upside-down, and if I were in such a situation in real life, I’d imagine my fear would go from “Are we going to survive this” to “I’d wish I’d told my family how much I loved them before leaving for this mission.” That’s when Seed approached me. He grabbed … [Read more...] about Far Cry 5 cult adviser reveals how these fanatics thrive: Follow the money (updated)
You’ve no doubt heard of software as a service. Those who are deeply into IT will nod their heads in recognition when acronyms such as IaaS (infrastructure as a service) and PaaS (platform as a service) are tossed around, too. But here’s one “*aaS” you might not have heard of yet: everything as a service. And it’s the future, according to Linden Tibbets, CEO and co-founder of IFTTT.But what exactly is IFTTT? And how does it relate to the idea of everything as a service?
