IR Hack Turns Kid’s Lamp Into Temp Display

Sometimes a clever hack of an off-the-shelf product can come courtesy of its dismantling and hardware modification, but at other times the most elegant of hacks can be made without ever turning a screwdriver. [Brian Lough] was given the request by a friend to replicate a commercial child’s night light that changed colour with temperature, and his response was to use an off-the-shelf colour changing kids light unmodified, sending it temperature-related colour commands via its infra-red control. His device is a spectacularly simple one hardware-wise using an off-the-shelf Wemos D2 Mini ESP8266 board running an Arduino bootloader, coupled with a BME280 temperature sensor, IR receiver, and transmitter. His video which we’ve placed below the break is a handy primer to …

Location: Mount Evans, Colorado. “It was the end of the day on Mount Evans when this lone mountain goat appeared from behind the rocks to enjoy the view of the canyon,” explains Putney. “It chose the perfect spot to pose where the sun was highlighting that area like a spotlight.

vivo Y19 arrives with a Helio P65 chipset and the body of vivo U3

Today vivo introduced its Y19 mid-ranger in Vietnam and Thailand. If the phone seems familiar it’s because it shares its design with the vivo U3 that debuted in China last month. The Y19 is not the exact same phone though as it uses the MediaTek Helio P65 chipset as opposed to the Snapdragon 675. Elsewhere the specs are more or less unchanged. The vivo Y19 has a 6.53″ screen with Full HD+ resolution and a waterdrop notch and three cameras on the back alongside an LED flash. A 5,000 mAh battery powers the Y19 and it supports fast charging and reverse charging through a… Read more: gsmarena.com

Instagram influencer nabbed in Dubai for running alleged cryptocurrency investment scam

Aziz ‘Com’ Mirza, a Canadian man living in Dubai, has been arrested by authorities and accused of defrauding investors through a string of get-rich-quick schemes, including real estate-backed cryptocurrency Habibi Coin — once dubbed “the Bitcoin of the Middle East.” According to Gulf News, Mirza, who describes himself as a serial entrepreneur, mentor, influencer, and philanthropist is now in custody at Al Awir jail. Mirza was taken into custody by Bur Dubai Police on October 27. He was arrested after a United Arab Emirates resident claimed they’d lost more than $150,000 in one of his dodgy schemes.

Audi A1 citycarver (2020) Features, Specs, Design

It is based on the new A1 Sportback and has adopted the sporty, taut body line with the broad track and short overhangs. However, it has just over four centimeters (1.6 in) more ground clearance, which makes it easier to get in and provides an even better overview. Roughly 35 millimeters (1.4 in) of its new height are due to the modified suspension, which has a larger jounce travel. The large wheels contribute the remainder of the increase.

These sisters dressed as an astronaut and lunar module for Halloween, and it’s incredible

Some people’s creativity is really just out of this world. Sisters Charlie, 5, and Ellie, 2, dressed up as the lunar module and an astronaut for Halloween this year. And while that lunar module looks pretty hefty for a 5-year-old, the costume is apparently made entirely of foam and foam board.  But this level of perfection doesn’t just happen spontaneously. Their parent, Imgur user brandoj23, has been creating their jaw-dropping costumes every year. In 2017, Charlie’s favorite animal was a squid, so naturally she had to fully embody one come costume time. While most of the costume is made of foam to make it light weight, the iridescent eyes are, incredibly, made of old CDs. Read more… More about Space, …

1788-L Transforms The Classic “Halloween” Theme Into A Terrifying Banger

Halloween is officially here, and that means loads of artists are dropping new music. However, right now, we turn our attention to the mysterious 1788-L who’s just unleashed a terrifying new remix of the classic “Halloween” theme.

This ferociously off-kilter remix comes at your from a wild assortment of angles, hitting hard and fast, backing away, and coming in again swiftly for the kill. You’d be hard pressed to find anyone who’s able to keep their rhythm when this one drops, but sure enough you’ll find plenty who are throwing their necks out. Check out the remix below.

Andrei Svechnikov scored the NHL’s first lacrosse-style goal from BEHIND THE NET

Don Cherry weeps. I seriously cannot stop watching this friggin’ goal by Andrei Svechnikov. You’ll always remember where you were when @ASvechnikov_37 scored the first lacrosse goal in @NHL history pic.twitter.com/DRE8nxTRzc — Carolina Hurricanes (@Canes) October 30, 2019 This scooping, lacrosse-style goal is the first of its kind in the NHL (most get called off due to the stick being above the bar), and honestly I’m freaking out over it.

The jerk team. #SCTop10 pic.twitter.com/IbvT7JILAq — Carolina Hurricanes (@Canes) October 30, 2019 This means so much more than you can imagine.

How a Single Front-End Engineer Can Replace a Team of Two

Demand within the web design scene today has changed over the past few years: designers with front-end skills, and front-end developers with design skills, are more and more in demand. Yes, you could argue that the jobs are completely different—and maybe you straight-up don’t like one of them—but truth be told, in my six years as a freelance web developer and twelve years as a designer, I’ve learned that it’s much harder to get by as just a web designer or just a front-end developer. Wearing both hats has a lot of advantages: from a professional perspective alone, you can find work more easily and charge a higher rate because you’re bringing more to the table.
