first_imgLaLiga president Tebas: Morata to Atletico? Real Madrid and Neymar?by Carlos Volcano9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLaLiga president Javier Tebas has questioned whether Atletico Madrid can sign Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata.Tebas believes Atletico’s budget won’t stretch to cover Morata’s demands.He told AS: “They’re very limited; they would have to get rid of someone. I do not know exactly because that is what is needed for the economic controls.”Tebas was also asked about Real Madrid buying PSG star Kylian Mbappe or Neymar.He added: “Either one of the two. Or the two. I do not know if Florentino (Perez) wants to sign one of the two. We have worked hard on the brand and it is above the players because we have taken advantage of the synergy of the clubs. “What we do not know is how much more we would be favoured by them being here.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Audi Disney bring VR games and movies into your car at CES

This is common in the auto industry, as it’s far more economical to ship journalists to cars than to ship cars to journalists. While Roadshow accepts multi-day vehicle loans from manufacturers in order to provide scored editorial reviews, all scored vehicle reviews are completed on our turf and on our terms. The judgments and opinions of Roadshow’s editorial team are our own and we do not accept paid editorial content. Specifically, Holoride will offer something called “elastic content,” automatically generated to suit each journey. A movie streamed on your iPad might be longer or shorter than your actual drive, for instance, but every one of Holoride’s experiences would automatically match up to the length of a route programmed in the car’s navigation system. 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better CES 2019: Sci-fi gaming in Audi and Disney’s in-car VR… Tags In addition, the experience would be tailored to the drive route: In one demo, passengers “see” a cartoon-like, brightly colored town with intersections that match up to the real-world intersections the car is driving past. In another mock-up, users “fly” through a prehistoric landscape and turn left or right, soaring over dinosaurs, as the real-world car steers along the road.In Audi’s own words: “If the car turns a tight corner, the player curves around an opposing spaceship in virtual reality. If the Audi E-Tron accelerates, the ship in the experience does the same.”Audi and Disney's Holoride demonstrationIn reality, the Audi laps SpeedVegas. In virtual reality, Iron Man and Rocket wage a battle against alien hordes. Audi The idea is to give people something interesting to do when they’re riding as a passenger in a car, says Nils Wollny, Audi’s head of digital business, who will also be CEO of Holoride. That initially applies to human-driven cars, but it’s easy to imagine this type of entertainment working well in autonomous vehicles down the road.”There are a lot of passengers traveling in the back seat who have nothing to do,” Wollny told Roadshow. “In most cases, transit time feels like wasted time.” The VR demo really did bring me out of the world of riding in a car: Sure, I could feel the E-Tron moving around and accelerating and so on, but I found myself so immersed in the game that there was no real sense of what was happening. Now imagine that helping you avoid the monotony of, say, staring out the window on a long trip along the Ohio Turnpike. Audi and Disney's Holoride demonstrationThough Audi spearheaded Holoride, the ultimate goal is to allow the tech to work with cars from other automakers. Audi “Every street pattern turns into a canvas” for content creators, Wollny says, while “every back seat turns into a thrilling ride.” Because the twists and turns and elevation changes of a preplanned navigation route are known, thanks to the car’s built-in map data, Audi engineer Daniel Profendiner says, Holoride’s software can help create a virtual world that matches the real one. The game engine might be told not to place a digital obstacle near a highway exit, for instance, or might be shown when to make the game whip around to the left to match up with a hairpin bend in the real world.But what about motion sickness? One of the most interesting aspects of this virtual reality setup is that, Wollny says, people who use it are less likely to report feeling car sick than those simply watching a traditional tablet or phone. Because visual cues match up with the car’s real-world movements, you’re less likely to get that sinking feeling you might feel when, say, looking down to read text messages or Facebook updates in the car. Audi tested the tech with people who self-reported a high propensity for motion sickness, taking them on a 30-minute ride and asking how they felt afterward. Participants apparently didn’t feel that sick at all. “That basically solved one of the big problems,” Wollny says. Still, after my brief ride in the Audi, I was feeling rather nauseous. Another journalist seated alongside me also said he felt queasy. Of course, we were trying a demonstration VR experience while riding on a twisting and turning race track. A tamer route might not churn the stomach so much. Audi and Disney's Holoride demonstrationAn artist’s rendering of what the Holoride experience feels like. Audi It’s not just games Rocket’s Rescue Run is an incredibly fun demo of Holoride’s VR tech because it feels like you’re in an amusement park ride. And for Audi and Disney, the partnership with a Marvel Studios title made sense given the long history between the brands, such as Tony Stark driving Audis in Iron Man movies. But there are many other types of “elastic content” that Holoride could offer in the future. A space battle wouldn’t seem so exciting, after all, when riding on the flat, straight highways of the American Midwest. Profendiner suggests that Holoride’s technology could be used simply to watch a movie in the car with less motion sickness: The VR experience would present a screen ahead of the viewer. He also imagines experiences that let passengers time travel as they ride through a modern-day city while seeing how buildings looked in years past. “I can say perhaps let’s go minus 2,000 years [in Rome],” Profendiner told Roadshow. “Or you go to New York City in the 1920s.” Audi and Disney's Holoride demonstrationHoloride will initially be based in Munich, but Wollny says it could also open an office in the US. Audi An open platform Audi began working on Holoride technology about four years ago and brought Disney on board about 18 months ago. But the goal long-term is for it to be an open platform: anyone could produce content and it could work in any car. Though he’s cagey with details, Wollny seems to hint at a type of app store-like model where a user might buy experiences — movies, games and so on — for their Holoride device. Then the car would connect to your virtual reality headset with a wireless connection to provide information about your route and the car’s motion.Wollny says Holoride will launch an SDK (software development kit) for others to experiment with by the end of 2019, and plans to launch the system commercially by late 2020 or early 2021. That’s when, Wollny says, “next-generation” virtual-reality headsets will be available to take the technology mainstream.So in a few years’ time you might not bother cueing up a Spotify playlist or downloading a Netflix show to stay entertained on a road trip. Instead you might strap on your virtual reality headset and plunge into a virtual world, courtesy of Holoride. 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Share your voice 1:06 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous 3 A few years ago I drove a few laps around SpeedVegas, a 1.5-mile race track just south of the Las Vegas Strip. On Sunday night, I lapped SpeedVegas again, but this time I was fully immersed in a space battle alongside Rocket — you know, the raccoon from Guardians of The Galaxy — and Iron Man. As I sat in the back seat of an Audi E-Tron crossover, wearing an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, Rocket encouraged me to “shoot” asteroids and rival drones as I “flew” through an outer-space environment.This was the first time the companies let anyone outside Audi and Disney try the VR game. Audi Let me be clear: It was awesome fun, and I’d happily buckle up for another round of the game. But, uh, what exactly is it? This game, called Marvel’s Avengers: Rocket’s Rescue Run, is the first demo product from Holoride, a new startup in which Audi will hold a minority stake. It’s the result of Audi and Disney’s promised new media format, which aims to bring virtual reality to passengers in cars. The VR experience is intended to match, visually, what the passengers feel as they ride: If the car turns, accelerates or brakes, the VR environment will do the same thing. And the “experience” — whether it’s a game or a movie or something else — will be automatically tailored to the length and movements of your drive route.

Netflix Will Cut Bird Box Footage of Canadian TrainCrash Tragedy

This result shows that by being in solidarity and by putting our efforts together, anything is possible.”The edited version of “Bird Box” eliminating the Lac-Mégantic stock footage is expected to be updated on the service within a few weeks. That footage is being replaced with a clip from an older U.S. TV series (not stock footage); Netflix didn’t identify the TV show.The footage of the Lac-Mégantic disaster used in “Bird Box” came from stock-footage house Pond5. In a statement, New York-based Pond5 said, “It has recently come to our attention that our footage depicting the Lac-Mégantic rail disaster was taken out of context and used in entertainment programming. We deeply regret that this happened and sincerely apologize to anyone who was offended, especially the victims and their families.” Pond5-supplied footage from the train crash also was used in the third season of Netflix’s “Travelers,” which Netflix had already agreed to remove. Pond5 also said it is contacting all customers who have purchased any related clips “to ensure they are aware of the sensitive nature of this footage.”“Bird Box” has registered as one of Netflix’s most popular originals ever. The streamer boasted of the strong reception for the thriller, claiming 45 million member accounts watched at least 70% of Sandra Bullock-starrer in the first seven days of its Dec. 21 release — and upwards of 80 million in the first four weeks. The initial claim was bolstered by Nielsen data.In “Bird Box,” Bullock plays a single mom trying to save her kid’s lives after some kind of alien creatures (not shown in the movie) descend on Earth and somehow inflict psychic trauma that causes people to kill themselves. Survivors must wear blindfolds or be exposed to supernatural entities that embody their deepest fears and drive them to suicide.“Bird Box” is directed by Susanne Bier, based on Josh Malerman’s 2014 novel of the same name. The cast also includes Trevante Rhodes (“Moonlight”) and Bullock’s “Ocean’s 8” co-star Sarah Paulson, along with John Malkovich, Jacki Weaver, Danielle Macdonald, Lil Rel Howery, BD Wong, Machine Gun Kelly and Tom Hollander.center_img Netflix, in an about-face after an outcry over footage in its original film “Bird Box” of the 2013 deadly train disaster in Lac-Mégantic, Quebec, said it will now remove the offending segment.“Netflix and the filmmakers of ‘Bird Box’ have decided to replace the clip,” a company spokesman said in an email to Variety. “We’re sorry for any pain caused to the Lac-Mégantic community.”Previously, Netflix had said it would not remove the footage showing the aftermath of the train crash, which killed an estimated 47 people after a freight train carrying crude oil derailed in the downtown area of the town of Lac-Mégantic. But after pressure from Canadian officials — including Quebec culture and communications minister Nathalie Roy, who in January sent an open letter to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings urging the footage to be cut — Netflix decided to remove the clip.last_img read more
