Rivian R1S vs Lamborghini Urus! | Head 2 Head Drag Race | MotorTrend

Not only are these two of the quickest SUVs in town, they’re also amongst the most excessive. Nothing this big and heavy needs to go this quickly, or cost this much, or be painted this bright – and yet here we are! On this episode we pit the Rivian R1S against the Lamborghini Urus, and we’re going to find out which is best.

Lamborghini, an iconic Italian automotive manufacturer, was founded by Ferruccio Lamborghini in 1963. Ferruccio Lamborghini was originally a successful tractor manufacturer, but his passion for sports cars led him to venture into the world of high-performance automobiles. The story goes that Lamborghini, dissatisfied with a Ferrari he owned, decided to create his own sports car that would surpass the quality and performance of his existing vehicle. This drive and ambition gave birth to the first Lamborghini car, the 350 GT, which made its debut in 1964. The 350 GT was followed by several other successful models, such as the Miura, Espada, and Countach, which solidified Lamborghini’s reputation for producing high-performance, exotic cars that pushed the boundaries of automotive engineering.

Over the years, Lamborghini has experienced various ownership changes, including being under the Volkswagen Group since 1998. This transition has allowed the brand to benefit from increased investment and technological resources, leading to the development of even more advanced and innovative supercars. Lamborghini’s commitment to pushing the limits of design and engineering has resulted in the production of some of the most sought-after and revered sports cars in the world. The brand’s distinctive and aggressive styling, coupled with its powerful engines, has earned Lamborghini a dedicated global fan base and a prominent place in automotive history. Today, Lamborghini continues to produce cutting-edge supercars like the Aventador and Huracán, while also exploring new technologies such as hybrid and electric powertrains to ensure its continued relevance in the ever-evolving automotive landscape.

XREAL Air2 Glasses Review – I’m impressed!

Review of the new Xreal Air2 AR (Augmented Reality) glasses. I use these glasses playing Steam Deck games, Nintendo Switch games, iPad & more.

Augmented reality (AR) glasses are wearable devices that seamlessly blend digital information with the real-world environment, enhancing the user’s perception and interaction with their surroundings. These glasses typically consist of a lightweight frame equipped with transparent display screens positioned in front of the user’s eyes. The display technology allows virtual images, graphics, or information to be superimposed onto the user’s view of the real world. AR glasses often incorporate sensors such as cameras, accelerometers, and gyroscopes to track the user’s movements and gather data about the environment. This data is then processed in real-time to generate and display relevant augmented content.

One of the primary advantages of augmented reality glasses is their potential to revolutionize how users consume information and engage with digital content. From providing contextual information about the objects in the user’s field of view to enabling immersive gaming experiences or aiding in navigation through enhanced maps and directions, AR glasses have a broad range of applications. Moreover, they offer hands-free operation, allowing users to access information and perform tasks without the need for a separate device. As technology continues to advance, augmented reality glasses are poised to play an increasingly significant role in various industries, including healthcare, education, manufacturing, and entertainment, by offering innovative solutions to enhance productivity, learning, and entertainment experiences.

Why You Need To Put A Raspberry Pi CM4 Inside Your PSP Right Now!

Something magical happens when you put a Raspberry Pi Into A PSP. In this episode we take a look at the PSPi 6 project from othermod. A really cool mod that turns the PSP into a beautiful emulation handheld.

The Sony PSP, short for PlayStation Portable, was a handheld gaming console released by Sony Computer Entertainment in 2004. It marked a significant advancement in portable gaming technology, offering a level of graphics and gameplay previously unseen in handheld devices. The PSP featured a 4.3-inch LCD screen with impressive color reproduction and resolution, providing a high-quality gaming experience on the go. It also boasted a wide range of multimedia capabilities, allowing users to not only play games but also watch movies, listen to music, view photos, and browse the internet. The PSP utilized a proprietary optical disc format called Universal Media Disc (UMD) for games and movies, but it also supported digital downloads and offered a Memory Stick Duo slot for expandable storage.

One of the key strengths of the PSP was its robust library of games, which encompassed a diverse range of genres from action-adventure to RPGs, and featured popular titles like “God of War: Chains of Olympus,” “Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions,” and “Monster Hunter Freedom.” The device also introduced features like local ad-hoc multiplayer, enabling players to connect with one another wirelessly for multiplayer gaming experiences. Despite facing competition from Nintendo’s DS, the PSP enjoyed a loyal fan base and contributed to the growth of the handheld gaming market. Its sleek design, powerful hardware, and versatile multimedia capabilities made it a standout device in the portable gaming landscape, leaving a lasting legacy in the gaming industry.

Meta Quest 3 Review – Mixed Reality, Improved Virtual Reality Performance and Better Comfort

Meta’s new Quest 3 headset is a nice improvement over the Quest 2, introducing some amazing mixed reality features and improving VR too

Designing and manufacturing a VR headset presents a myriad of complex challenges. Firstly, the optics and display technology must be meticulously engineered to provide a high-resolution, low-latency visual experience. Achieving a wide field of view without sacrificing image clarity is a delicate balance, requiring precise calibration and advanced optics. Additionally, minimizing motion sickness and discomfort for users is paramount, demanding careful consideration of factors like refresh rates, pixel density, and color accuracy. Striking the right balance between weight, ergonomics, and fit is another formidable challenge, as the headset must be comfortable for extended periods of wear. Moreover, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of devices and platforms adds a layer of complexity, as VR headsets need to interface seamlessly with various operating systems, controllers, and tracking systems.

Beyond the hardware, software development poses its own set of hurdles. Creating an immersive and realistic virtual environment necessitates sophisticated graphics rendering and real-time tracking capabilities. Achieving smooth and accurate motion tracking, while avoiding lag or jitter, is a substantial technical feat. Moreover, optimizing software to run efficiently on a wide range of hardware configurations is a significant challenge, given the diverse ecosystem of PCs and gaming consoles. Integrating intuitive user interfaces and interaction methods that allow for natural and intuitive movement within the virtual space further complicates development. Additionally, ensuring a robust and secure ecosystem of applications, while also supporting third-party development, requires careful consideration of software standards and development tools. Overall, the intricate interplay between hardware and software components in VR headset design requires a multidisciplinary approach and a deep understanding of both engineering and user experience principles.

The Game Chasers – Ep 85 You Never See THESE In The Wild!

The Game Chasers are back once again as they hit up a flea market looking for retro games to buy. Along the way they discover that no one wants to make a deal, leaving them to look foolish as they “insult” someone with a fair offer. Then as luck would have it, Billy runs into something you never see in the wild these days, a vintage computer called the Apple II….for what might be a sweet deal.

The Apple II, released in 1977, was one of the earliest personal computers and a significant milestone in the history of computing. Designed by Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs, co-founders of Apple Inc., the Apple II featured a groundbreaking open architecture that allowed users to connect peripherals and expansion cards. It was powered by the MOS Technology 6502 microprocessor and came with 4KB of RAM, which could be expanded to a maximum of 48KB. The computer was notable for its integrated keyboard and color graphics, which were quite advanced for its time.

One of the key distinguishing features of the Apple II was its support for color graphics, setting it apart from many of its contemporaries which primarily displayed monochrome text. This made it particularly popular in educational settings, where its graphical capabilities were utilized for early educational games and applications. The availability of a range of software and peripherals further contributed to its popularity, and the Apple II became a versatile platform for both business and personal use. The Apple II series continued to evolve over the years with various models and upgrades, solidifying its position as a pioneering force in the personal computing industry.
