Beyond holograms: Star Wars-inspired 3D images float in free space

Beyond holograms: Star Wars-inspired 3D images float in free space


We at Brigham Young University have
created a volumetric display that is both high resolution and full-color that
is very much like the displays of science fiction. We started this project
with the goal in mind of creating the Princess Leia projection. Often when we
think of an image that’s floating in space that’s 3D, we think of a hologram
but really a hologram cannot make the Princess Leia image or the Avatar table
or the Iron Man display. A 3D image that floats in air that you can walk all
around and see from every angle, this image is called a volumetric image.
Essentially it’s an image that is taking up three-dimensional space. We’re
actually using a laser beam to trap a particle and then we can move that particle to create the image. We get a particle into the trap by sweeping through the focus see a little particle like that it’s now trapped and it’s dragged along with the
scan of the mirrors and while it’s trapped laser light will hit that
particle and that would glow because there’s all this light scattering off of it. This is not unlike the effect you’ll see with a sparkler if you move it quickly
enough it doesn’t look just like one point it looks like a line. We can think
about this image like a 3D printed object. A single point was dragged
sequentially through all of these image points to create this 3D image in space. This display is like a 3D printer for light you’re actually printing an object
in space with these little particles. This is not a hologram we’ve
demonstrated here that we can see it from the front you can see it from the
back and in reality we can see it from almost any angle. Here we see the culmination of three years of effort our display is projecting a small particle
focused right here. It’s being dragged up and down vertically rastering this image of Princess Leia. The contribution BYU has made is that we’re providing a method of making a volumetric image that can essentially create the images that we imagine we’ll have in the future. The future won’t be
the future without a Princess Leia projector and this can make that a reality.

Someone stole naked pictures of me. This is what I did about it – Emma Holten | Comment is Free

Someone stole naked pictures of me. This is what I did about it – Emma Holten | Comment is Free


Someone stole naked pictures of me. This is
what I did about it. Who should be able to see you naked? Do you
think you deserve a say? Four years ago someone decided that I didn’t. I woke up one morning and found that my email
and Facebook had been hacked and naked pictures of me had been posted online. This has been called revenge porn but revenge
implies that it’s just one person out to destroy your life. I’ve never found out who hacked me but I do
know that thousands of others viewed the images, commented on them, shared further information
about me, the names of my siblings and parents, where I worked. Non-consensual pornography is a devastating
experience, but it was made so much harder knowing how many people were involved. Emails arrived in my inbox saying things like: “Do your parents know you’re a slut?” Or this: “Send me more nudes or I’ll send the ones
I have to your boss.” Messages came from all over the world – teenage
boys, university students and middle-aged fathers. The only thing they had in common was that
they were all from men. You probably won’t be surprised if I tell
you that 90% of the victims of non-consensual porn are female. But here’s what you might not know. Most of those men knew those pictures were
posted against my will, and my humiliation was part of their thrill. I wish that I could say that the abuse ended
that day, or that week, or that month, but years later, I am still being harassed. I sent an email to a site that was profiting
off some of the pictures, pleading that they remove them. This was their reply: “You shouldn’t have been such a whore in the
first place.” This was the turning point where I realised
that this wasn’t just about me. This is about a hatred of women. Here was a porn site where tons of pictures
were being constantly posted, never with the permission of the women in them. Many people have said these women shouldn’t
have taken the pictures in the first place, that OUR behaviour is the problem. But you don’t end misogyny by limiting women’s
rights to expression and privacy. The issue of hacked photos is part of a larger
problem with our relationship to consent. ‘Creepshots’ on public transport, catcalling
on the streets, the shocking rates of assault on US college campuses. None of these women agreed to a sexual situation,
but again, to many others, this is part of the allure. The more I understood how these things were
related, the angrier I became. And I felt that my silence implied I SHOULD
be ashamed. So last year I got in touch with the photographer
Cecilie Bodker and we decided to take a new set of pictures. We both felt that so often, photographs of
women make them the object, rather than the subject. Our project reverses this. It was important to me not to distance myself
from my body, not to blame it for causing me this humiliation, not to be cowed into
denying my sexuality. I get why people might think that this is
counter-intuitive but I disagree. Consent is key. I did this. Just as rape and sex have nothing to do with
each other, pictures shared with and without this consent are completely different things. 2014: the year women won? Women, hang up your
pantsuits, in 2014 we won! For the first time ever 100 women were elected
to US…

Top 15 Image Creepypastas

Top 15 Image Creepypastas


When you look at a picture, you
immediately begin to memorize it the background, the small details, what the subject is holding or doing, but sometimes even a picture can haunt you. You’ll see it everywhere in the faces of
people that you meet, in your reflection and in your dreams. It’ll turn into a walking nightmare as
all you can think about is the photo you’ve seen and what it’s doing to you. Image Creepypastas latch onto this fear
and make you remember them long after you’ve closed the browser. Here are the Top 15 Image Creepypastas. On the board of 4chan, an anonymous user
posted a GIF image. At a first glance strangely the gif image wasn’t animated
it was titled i’m happy . gif and showed what appeared to be a drawing of a
smiley face only with realistic looking eyes and a mouth. People who clicked on it saw the smiley
face’s mouth slowly turning into a frown and the eyes taking on an angrier appearance. The smiley face with then scream loudly,
loud enough to burst the eardums. Flashes of gruesome images would appear depicting rapes, bomb test victims, aborted fetuses mutilated bodies, animals being tortured,
ad other unexplained photos. After about five minutes, it would then show the text “have a nice day” and the user’s computer
would close out of the browser and cease functioning. Reports indicated that those
whose computers were infected with the virus were found mutilated with the
smiley face painted in blood all over it not far from where the corpse lay.
4chan owners claim that the picture was not related to the murders in anyway and any time a user posted the
gif image they were immediately banned along with the picture being removed. slideshow is the story of a person bidding on a camera from ebay and finding a memory card still inside it Upon investigation, the stills of the
camera show pictures of a mailing address followed by a murder scene; In
the same order for several slides. The story ends with the author scanning through the images and finding the last image to be his own shipping label from the box. Shortly before a Japanese teenager committed suicide, she drew this picture, scanned it and
posted it online. In Korea the story went viral and various posts
on forums say; the viewer gets drawn to the girls blue eyes. They say it’s difficult for a person to
stare into the girl’s eyes for longer than five minutes. Some people say that the picture changes
as you view it, such as a taunting smirk that perhaps
dark rings grow under her eyes. The picture has sparked a good bit of
curiosity around the globe. Take a look for yourself. Has the image
changed for you? Did she perhaps just blink right then or
move her eyes slightly? or is it that your mind is simply playing tricks on
you? Image.001 is the story of an author finding an unintended laptop in a cafe. He steals it and takes it home with him; planning to sell it on eBay. When he
attempts to remove the hard drive, he notices pictures of men and women
being tortured mutilated and being forced to eat other. Videos were also
mentioned on the hard drive but the author does not go into full detail of
finding out what they contain. Eventually the author wonders about
contacting the authorities about the situation, only to find out that the
doorbell rings. He glances back at his laptop screen to see a notification say
‘GPS tracker activated.’ The Painting In The Mirror is the tale
of a student moving into a dark dingy apartment during the semester years. He
notices the room being very sparse; a bed with a mirror hung on the wall at the
foot of the bed. Everything seemed normal at first, until
a week of living there. He begins to notice in the mirror, a
painting above his bed that shows a thin shadowy figure moving
erratically into the frame; getting bigger and bigger. Eventually it drives the student to
insanity and he quickly seeks medical help by speaking to psychiatrists; which
lead to them asking what the painting actually depict. When the student goes
back to his apartment he notices that the painting does not exist on his wall and is only
viewable in the mirror. When he tries to sleep again, he notices that the figure in the
painting has grown even larger and its limbs stretch out side of the mirror. Eventually he is pulled through the
mirror and the student goes into detail of not remembering anything past that. He
wakes up tied down to a medical bed with doctors and nurses frequently visiting
him. He is given a pen and paper by the
nurse and asks the reader whether or not to believe him. A Tower of Silence is a circular raised structure used by Zoastrians for exposure of the dead. Particularly the scavenging birds for
the purposes of X carnation. The roster and exposure of the dead is first
attested in the mid 5th century BCE histories of Herod Otis; but the use of towers is first
documented in the early ninth century. On the 19th of January 2003, Indian
officials ventured into a deep jungle and hunt for missing people from a local
village. They instead found a tower of silence with bodies next to them. None of the bodies were identified or
linked to the missing people and no animals were found near them; just maggots and flies. Only one photograph was found to be
taken of the incident. There was no official count of the
bodies and little work was actually accomplished at the site because the
officials felt uneasy and nauseous about the whole situation. The deep pit in the center was filled
with several feet of blood, far more than the bodies on the outside
could ever supply. The expedition ended when a villager accidentally kicked a
small bone into the pit which then erupted showering everyone including the
cameraman in blood from the pit. Those that were caught in the explosion
were immediately sent to the hospital and quarantine for possible infections. Reports said they became delirious with
fever; shouting about being tainted with the
blood of our Imam which is the personification of evil and Zorastrism.
As the fever got worse the patients began attacking the
hospital staff until they were all sedated. All patients had later died from their
illness. When officials returned with hazmat suits the following day, the site
was empty. The bodies had been removed and the pool
of blood in the pit had been drained. All that remained was this photograph. The portraits is the story about a hunter searching the woods at dusk and stumbling across a cabin. The door was slightly open, so he went
ahead and entered the cabin. The inside was dark, a single bed lay in
the room. After laying himself on the bed and getting comfortable, he decided he would tell the owner in
the morning about his sudden intrusion; but when he looked around the cabin, he
noticed that the walls were covered with many portraits; all painted with
incredible detail. They were all staring at him, with
twisted looks of hatred and anger. The Hunter had felt uncomfortable but his
exhaustion took him over and he drifted off to sleep When he awoke the following
morning, all was quiet. The sun streaked into the
cabin; but then he noticed then that the cabin had no portraits at all, only
windows. It was then that the hunter immediately
left the cabin in a hurry and never came back. The narrator of anomaly is an average guy, working at a small publishing company holding down an office job that’s
likable enough. The projects he gets are pretty normal,
turning up the script of books that people buy for gifts and coffee tables. that’s until he gets a pitch from
someone with a series of photos he once compiled into a rather non-traditional
volume. All of the photos are anomalies showing something otherworldly or
unexplained. The photos are so valuable in fact that rather than sending them
all to be processed appliances The client insists on sending them one at a time, when one comes back, he sends the next. When he gets a better offer from someone
wanting to buy all the photos, the publishing project is terminated.
Lawyers get involved, copies are seized and most of the photos
are wiped from their computers with the exception of a few which the narrator
explains has to be seen to be believed. The photographs and their stories are
chilling. There is a blurry photo of children taken before a 1908 fire that
killed them all. There’s a hooded figure with a snarling
dog on a leash; and a photo that was recovered from a man’s camera after his mysterious
disappearance. A possible image of the Axeman of New Orleans. Evidence of the cave dwelling cryptids, a
photo of a Danish family later killed in a terrible accident and more. There are 14 photos and all and it’s not
immediately obvious what’s out of the ordinary which makes anomaly all the more creepy. A police case was issued with reports of a missing boy from a family home. The house in question was not broken into and there were no reports of
what the attacker looked like. A seven-year-old boy had claimed that
someone had tried to enter through the bathroom at midnight when he was in it.
He had said, it scratched its nails on the door A forensics identified that the marks
left by the intruder could not be done by human hands. The boy also explained that the painting,
that their father had left in the bedroom would change. Originally the painting is described as
large with a house painted over a cliff, with an ocean underneath. He had stated
that every night, would wake up in the middle of it and witness a black smudge
on the canvas; almost as if a person was drawn there.
Each night the smudge would be in a different position, until the very night his brother went missing. He then stated
that he would see a painted face in the window of the house that looked just
like his brother. No official claims have been made from the parents on this matter. Studying the back of the painting
written in red ink, are the words which translated from Welsh is.. The Girl In The Photograph is a mysterious picture that claims the lives of victims. In the
picture she is described as beautiful, wearing a dress with tights on and red
shoes. The photograph of her shows are making
numbered signs but these could be interpreted as hand gestures towards the
camera. Anyone that touches the picture instantly wants to know more information
about the girl in the photograph. The victim will ask around demanding to know who she is but will not get the results they are looking for. At night it’s been
reported that giggling can trance the victim to dangerous locations such as a
road, rail track or construction site. If the victim is killed, the photograph
will change its hand gesture to show how many victims it has fooled. Janice.jpg follows the story of a
man named Mark Spielmann, who gets a job at a police station looking through
websites and shutting them down for illegal activities. As he dives deeper
into the job, he comes across a website called sweet 15.com, which he suspects of
being a child pornography website. As he looks through it, the photos on the site are all the same
picture, Janice. he goes home and immediately
begins working on uncovering the mystery of Janice, when his computer becomes
infected with what he believes to be a virus. Mark logs in and sees that Janice is there.
1000 pictures of her. First just the original photo of her
slightly smiling and then she begins frowning. The frown devolves into the
girl screaming in fear; and a man entering the shot. The man in the photos
takes Janice from her bed, rips out her internal organs and then goes off screen.
The photos end with Janice covered in blood and a simple question; who is
Janice? The police find the computer and the website but Mark is never seen or
heard from again. Google Earth and Google Street view
reveals some incredible things it’s been uncovering a new dimension of
realities since they came online. One user had experienced the world through
browsing google maps, visiting places such as London Paris, Japan and going on
virtual tours; but then he began spotting something in particular. A brown-haired
woman with a gray bag and red sneakers. He sees her in Tokyo first, then in Paris
and then Berlin. on another day he sees the mysterious woman again in Sydney, Zurich
and Hong Kong; each time he visits different places in the world and
reverts back she appears to be doing something
different; from standing up, sitting on the bench, petting a cat, staring at the
camera from a balcony. He couldn’t find much
information on the woman other than her attire, as the faces on google maps are
blurred, Panicking now, he visits his hometown and worryingly, she is standing
in the park looking at the camera. Terrified by the strange seemingly every
present woman, he exits out of google maps all together vowing never to
use the tool again. That’s when a knock at his door comes and
the security camera features a woman with a grey bag in red sneakers
staring directly at the camera with a blurred face. In January 2006, reports of a man appearing in patients dreams was the cause of concern among the well-known
psychiatrist. A patient had drawn the face of man that kept on appearing in their
dreams. When more and more patients discovered the same man occurring, the psychiatrist sends the picture to his
other colleagues to see if their patients recognize the man as a frequent
presence in their dreams. To his surprise all the patients referred to him as ‘This
Man.’ Even to this day, at least 2000 people have
claimed to have seen ‘This Man’ in their dreams; with many reports from cities
such as Los Angeles, Berlin, Sao Paulo Tehran, Bejing, Rome, Barcelona, Stockholm, Paris, Moscow and London.
Investigations are still ongoing but there is still no ascertain relation or
common trait amongst those who have dreamed of ‘This Man.’ ‘Zalgo’ is an internet legend about an
ominous entity believed to cause insanity death and destruction of the
world. Similar to the creature Cthulhu
created by HP Lovecraft, ‘Zalgo’ is an ominous creature that appears to be horror itself or an ultimate terror all on its own. it’s believed to relate to the death of
the world along the scourge of insanity in other unspeakable things. Most of the time, disfiguration, gore and
dismemberment go along with the creature ‘Zalgo’ is often associated with scrambled
text on web pages and photos of people whose eyes and mouth have been covered
in black. ‘Zalgo’ often cultivates into simple childish cartoons or comic strips
which corrupt them and turned them into hellish like entities on paper with
nothing but the black eyes and mouth. On forums, image boards and certainly
through emails, scrambled text began appearing with phrases like “and he waits
behind the wall.” Parts of the internet become more corrupted and soon more of
its growth started spreading omniously without warning. it’s known as “he waits behind the wall
with seven hands armed only with a dead star and alone
candle.” Smile dog story consists of an amateur writer who visits the house an old lady, supposedly she had a story
for him which he could use. Rather then speak however, the woman locked herself
up in her room crying and ranting about nightmares and visions. She then appeared to have killed herself
a week later. All of these centred around a floppy
disk she was given, that contained the image “smile.jpg.” Viewing this image
insights insanity in the mind those would see it. These reports
continue to happen while the victim is asleep, resulting in very vivid and
disturbing nightmares. If you receive an email named “smile,” it’s
important you pass the image onto someone else. Deleting or not viewing the mail will
still result in the same hallucinations. If the mail is not sent after three days, this picture will deform and show a more
demonic smile dog; thus resulting in even worst nightmares. Attaching the file (that is spreading the
word) is the only way to save yourself from the smile dog that appears in your
dreams. Some say that the original legend began
with an image of the devil.

3 Canon RF Mount Cameras In 2020 – Good news?


Recent information coming out of cannon
rumors is leaving me a little bit confused.
You see, I’m confused because I don’t understand Canon’s vision or their
roadmap for the future, and the rumors are absent of any details. Now when it
comes to these cameras, the EOS R in the EOS RP it almost seems as though they were done as a stopgap measure, and rushed out the door.
Many are disappointed in the EOS R and the RP, but many also find them to be very
powerful cameras. Let’s get into what is rumored for the Canon RF platform in
2020. The canon EOS RS is the name given to the rumoured high megapixel RF mount
camera. This is expected to replace the canon 5dsR DSLR. No specs were
announced with a recent rumor, but we can’t expect this camera to be announced
on or before cp+ next month, or is that going to be in May. I just replied to a
gentleman yesterday saying there is going to be no mention of a rumored EOS
RP mark 2. Shortly after that, Canon Rumours stated that canon will be
releasing a low priced RF mount camera stating it would be priced lower than
the EOS RP, but that kind of sounds like an EOS RP mark 2 doesn’t it?
Unless of course canon in their ultimate wisdom is going to release too low price
RF mount cameras. Are there any takers on that one? I think I should conduct a poll
on that one. The third camera was first mentioned yesterday and is either a
sports / speed body perhaps with a lower megapixel sensor and aimed at the sony
a7s line of cameras. I just published a video yesterday about this camera
calling it jokingly the Canon a7S3. Canon rumours writes that this could be
what we believe to be the EOS R mark 2 or it could be a new camera aimed at
competing with the a7S line. Again no details and what about a mirrorless
version of the 1DX? Canon rumours does believe we will see
or doesn’t believe we will see anything this year. We have not heard anything at
all so far about a pro RF mount camera coming out this year. I think it’s safe
to put this one to rest and wake us wake it up sometime in 2021. There is a need for a low-end full-frame
RF mount camera. Canon is producing multiple lenses under $1000 including.
The available 24-240 and the 35mm with a low-priced nifty 50
coming out later this year. What do we want in a low price RF mount camera?
Better specs, more detail, 4k would be nice, but at least please give us 120
frames per second in 1080p.That would be a good start. The current price point is
pretty good. It’s cheaper than the 90D. I like the idea of a cheaper body it
allows beginners to grow into better lenses and bodies as the budget grows
without tossing out anything it won’t be a video powerhouse but it should at
least match the 90D in capabilities. The EOS R mark II will be a video centric
camera, a speed or sports camera aimed at competing with the a7 s line. That sounds
good but these are all words. These are all rumors without any specs. I’m sorry, I
cannot give you more. I’m sorry that I cannot make more sense of this. There
just is not enough information to be able to do so and it’s driving me insane.
What we all know is that there is some significant holes in canons mirrorless
offerings. If you have an EOS R an EOS RP or are looking to get your hands on some
RF glass this year, you’re likely going to see something coming out from Canon
architected to meet your needs or at least what Canon feels your needs.
With three cameras coming out in 2020 it’s likely that these are going to
cover everything from entry-level all the way up to but not including a
mirrorless version of the one DX. If you guys have any questions at all regarding
this video drop me a comment down below. I review all comments and I try to get
back to you try to get back to as many of you as I can. If you would like to

Asda 3D printer builds mini versions of you

Asda 3D printer builds mini versions of you


It’s not what you’d usually pick up during
your weekly shop – a mini version of yourself. But some say building products from scratch
is the future of retail. Supermarket chain Asda’s offering customers the chance to be
scanned and turned into a 3D-printed figurine, after beginning trials of the service at their
York store in northern England. Having your whole body scanned takes between 2-3 minutes,
with a small handheld machine recording images at a speed of roughly 15 frames per second.
Asda’s Head Of Personalisation, Phil Stout, said the machine reads colour as well as geometry. The scan is that sophisticated that it picks
up details such as belt buckles, shoe detail, wedding rings, and all of the detail of the
colour. After the scan, the image is processed by
a computer and then sent to be printed with coloured ceramic fluid, with each 8-inch figure
taking around eight hours to produce. Scanning slots were fully booked on the first
trial days – with some customers travelling miles to get one. But even with the short
trial, Stout said its uses were already becoming clear. So a gentleman came in, an older gentleman
earlier, and his wife is in a care home, so he doesn’t get to see his wife that often
so he wanted to do a scan to give to his wife as a present, so I thought that was very touching. 3D printing is increasingly used in the industrial
arena. But Britain’s second-biggest retailer believes it’s the first supermarket to offer
this service on a large scale and relatively cheaply too, at £40 per figure. Asda’s Retail
Director Mark Ibbotson said seeing the technology pioneered in the US by Walmart opened his
eyes to the possibilities the technology could bring. So in February, I visited the Walmart head
office in Bentonville, Arkansas and saw 3D printing and saw some of the products, some
of the jewellery, phone cases, several different things and was really thrilled by it. I mean,
the applications were so numerous. Asda’s parent company Walmart will also be
watching to see how the trial works out in the UK. But shoppers hoping for an unusual
Christmas gift might be disappointed, as Asda will not introduce the service to the whole
country until the new year, and only then, if the trial’s a success.

Matt Mills: Image recognition that triggers augmented reality

Matt Mills: Image recognition that triggers augmented reality


Translator: Joseph Geni
Reviewer: Morton Bast So wouldn’t it be amazing if our phones could see the world in the same way that we do, as we’re walking around being able to point a phone at anything, and then have it actually recognize images and objects like the human brain, and then be able to pull in information from an almost infinite library of knowledge and experiences and ideas. Well, traditionally that was seen as science fiction, but now we’ve moved to a world where actually this has become possible. So the best way of explaining it is to just show it. What you can see over here is Tamara, who is holding my phone that’s now plugged in. So let me start with this. What we have here is a painting of the great poet Rabbie Burns, and it’s just a normal image, but if we now switch inputs over to the phone, running our technology, you can see effectively what Tamara’s seeing on the screen, and when she points at this image, something magical happens. (Laughter) (Bagpipes) (Bagpipes) (Applause) (Bagpipes) Voice: Now simmer blinks on flowery braes … Matt Mills: Now, what’s great about this is, there’s no trickery here. There’s nothing done to this image. And what’s great about this is the technology’s actually allowing the phone to start to see and understand much like how the human brain does. Not only that, but as I move the object around, it’s going to track it and overlay that content seamlessly. Again, the thing that’s incredible about this is this is how advanced these devices have become. All the processing to do that was actually done on the device itself. Now, this has applications everywhere, whether in things like art in museums, like you just saw, or in the world of, say, advertising, or print journalism. So a newspaper becomes out of date as soon as it’s printed. And here is this morning’s newspaper, and we have some Wimbledon news, which is great. Now what we can do is point at the front of the newspaper and immediately get the bulletin. Voice: … To the grass, and it’s very important that you adapt and you, you have to be flexible, you have to be willing to change direction at a split second, and she does all that. She’s won this title. MM: And that linking of the digital content to something that’s physical is what we call an aura, and I’ll be using that term a little bit as we go through the talk. So, what’s great about this is it isn’t just a faster, more convenient way to get information in the real world, but there are times when actually using this medium allows you to be able to display information in a way that was never before possible. So what I have here is a wireless router. My American colleagues have told me I’ve got to call it a router, so that everyone here understands — (Laughter) — but nonetheless, here is the device. So now what I can do is, rather than getting the instructions for the device online, I can simply point at it, the device is recognized, and then — Voice: Begin by plugging in the grey ADSL cable. Then connect the power. Finally, the yellow ethernet cable. Congratulations. You have now completed setup. (Laughter) MM: Awesome. Thank you. (Applause) The incredible work that made that possible was done here in the U.K. by scientists at Cambridge, and they work in our offices, and I’ve got a lovely picture of them here. They couldn’t all be on stage, but we’re going to bring their aura to the stage, so here they are. They’re not very animated. (Laughter) This was the fourth take, I’m told. (Laughter) Okay. So, as we’re talking about Cambridge, let’s now move on to technical advancements, because since we started putting this technology on mobile phones less than 12 months ago, the speed and the processing in these devices has grown at a really phenomenal rate, and that means that I can now take cinema-quality 3D models and place them in the world around me, so I have one over here. Tamara, would you like to jump in? (Music) (Dinosaur roaring) (Laughter) MM: I should leap in. (Music) (Dinosaur roaring) (Applause) So then, after the fun, comes the more emotional side of what we do, because effectively, this technology allows you to see the world through someone’s eyes, and for that person to be able to take a moment in time and effectively store it and tag it to something physical that exists in the real world. What’s great about this is, the tools to do this are free. They’re open, they’re available to everyone within our application, and educators have really got on board with the classrooms. So we have teachers who’ve tagged up textbooks, teachers who’ve tagged up school classrooms, and a great example of this is a school in the U.K. I have a picture here from a video, and we’re now going to play it. Teacher: See what happens. (Children talking) Keep going. Child: TV. (Children react) Child: Oh my God. Teacher: Now move it either side. See what happens. Move away from it and come back to it. Child: Oh, that is so cool. Teacher: And then, have you got it again? Child: Oh my God! How did you do that? Second child: It’s magic. (Laughter) MM: (Laughs) So, it’s not magic. It’s available for everyone to do, and actually I’m going to show you how easy it is to do by doing one right now. So, as sort of — I’m told it’s called a stadium wave, so we’re going to start from this side of the room on the count of three, and go over to here. Tamara, are you recording? Okay, so are you all ready? One, two, three. Go! Audience: Whooooooo! MM: Fellows are really good at that. (Laughs) (Laughter) Okay. Now we’re going to switch back into the Aurasma application, and what Tamara’s going to do is tag that video that we just took onto my badge, so that I can remember it forever. Now, we have lots of people who are doing this already, and we’ve talked a little bit about the educational side. On the emotional side, we have people who’ve done things like send postcards and Christmas cards back to their family with little messages on them. We have people who have, for example, taken the inside of the engine bay of an old car and tagged up different components within an engine, so that if you’re stuck and you want to find out more, you can point and discover the information. We’re all very, very familiar with the Internet. In the last 20 years, it’s really changed the way that we live and work, and the way that we see the world, and what’s great is, we sort of think this is the next paradigm shift, because now we can literally take the content that we share, we discover, and that we enjoy and make it a part of the world around us. It’s completely free to download this application. If you have a good Wi-Fi connection or 3G, this process is very, very quick. Oh, there we are. We can save it now. It’s just going to do a tiny bit of processing to convert that image that we just took into a sort of digital fingerprint, and the great thing is, if you’re a professional user, — so, a newspaper — the tools are pretty much identical to what we’ve just used to create this demonstration. The only difference is that you’ve got the ability to add in links and slightly more content. Are you now ready? Tamara Roukaerts: We’re ready to go. MM: Okay. So, I’m told we’re ready, which means we can now point at the image, and there you all are. MM on video: One, two, three. Go! MM: Well done. We’ve been Aurasma. Thank you. (Applause)

Picture Your Life Without Migraine

Picture Your Life Without Migraine


I would not wish this on my worst enemy.
You can’t move. It feels like your brain is going to blow out of your head. You
can’t see straight, everything’s blurry. The pain would be just excruciating, no
matter what I took, no matter how much I slept no, matter what I ate, no matter
what I did. Even though I might outwardly look like I’m fine, nothing that is
normally me really holds anymore. I can’t function as the person that people
understand me to be. It is absolutely not just a headache. It becomes part of your
life that you just have to learn how to move with. I’ve had an attack almost
every single day for 15 years. I had to quit working. I had to move back close
for a family. You feel a sense of shame. You feel like I can’t live up to the
expectations. This photo was taken on the trip to
France that I took. his picture is of my husband very near the top of Pedra da Gávea and I’m sitting really far below. I think of myself in the photo and I’m able to climb to top and not have a worry all about whether or not I can make it.
This photo is of my husband and my daughter. Everything about this picture
is life. In an ideal world, I’m not taking this picture, I’m in it. This picture means
to me that I’m not my pain. That’s why I am thankful for the things in my life
that I have. Sorry. I did not expect to be so emotional. I just think it represents me
when I was not pretending that I was okay when I’m not. In my life without my
agreeing just every photo of me where I’m smiling would be a real smile. Chronic pain totally warps your mental
health and warps how you feel about yourself. You’re stuck hiding in a dark
room under your covers on a beautiful day you cannot help but feel it alone.
It’s really nice to be able to say is anybody else dealing with this today. I
really don’t know how I’d still be here without a community. I’ve really come to
realize that I’m stronger than I thought. I’m capable of like climbing
metaphorical mountains. Look at what I have done. I mean I moved a couple states
away. I’m going to college all on my own I never knew how strong I was we’re
warriors and we can do this.

How to professionally clean your DSLR camera sensor

How to professionally clean your DSLR camera sensor


Hi welcome pictureline. My name is bryce
and today we’re going to teach clean the sensor on your d_s_l_r. to start off
with your going to want to do this in a dust free environment so that you don’t further
contaminate the cameras you’re trying to clean we also want to do this with a full
battery into the camera doesn’t die while you’re cleaning it the tools that you’re going to need for this
job are a dust blower, sensor swabs, cleaning solution, and speck grabbers alright, now that we have all the tools and we have a full battery on the camera we’re going to go and take the first
step which is to take a test shot of what’s on the sensor to do this we’re going to set the camera to a longer exposure in such a two second exposure with a higher apature
such as in this case we used an f_-sixteen what that’ll do as we take a picture of
a white background such as a piece of paper in this case we used a white balance card you can move the camera round everything in front of the lens is going
to get blurred out everything behind it which is on the sensor is actually going
to show up in the image now that we’ve taking the test shot we’ll
move forward with locking the sensor up or the mirror up are we going to the uh…
settings menu go to lock mirror up for cleaning ready to begin well start off with the first tool
which is the dust blower while holding the camera upside-down give it a couple blasts of air this will not lose any of the larger pieces of dust that can
get dragged across the censors resulting in a scratched or damaged sensor right now that we’ve done blown that off we’ll go ahead and pull out a um…
sensor swab and are cleaning solution you want to
use a new sensor swab every time you use one that way it’s a sterile slob and you
don’t end up on with dust pieces on that that can damage a camera after applying a few
drops of the cleaning solution we’re going to put a little bit of pressure on
it and do one pass on each side of the swap we’ll do one pass flip it over they give a more uh… one more pass on the other side now that we have used that sensor swab, we are done with it, if you need another one we’ll pull a fresh one from out of the box and
open a new package once we use the swab will take another
test shot again about the two-second exposure with
a higher aperture to see if there’s any dust remaining in this case we still have a couple dots on
there so now instead of having to use a complete new um… swap we’re going to use what we call the
speck grabber flip the mirror up again grab the speck grabber and we’ll go in and individually remove each
piece of dust that’s on there that allows us to do a little bit of
cleaning without actually having to use a brand new swab once thats done will take another test
shot if the camera’s clean were done if it’s still a little bit dirty, we’re going to have to use another swab and kind of restart the process over again that’s about it thanks for watching our video
uh… if you have any questions on it feel free to give us a call or check out our
website pictureline.com if you’d like we also do you have
trained professionals here at the store would be more than happy to clean the
sensors on your camera for you so feel free to drop by anytime between
nine and six on monday through friday or nine to three on saturday

Autoleveling on 3D printers: 9 myths and 12 sensors tested!

Autoleveling on 3D printers: 9 myths and 12 sensors tested!


Twelve options to sense the surface of a 3D
printer’s bed. Twelve solutions to the same problem. Twelve sensors that are all different.
But there can only be one! Well, actually, each one of these has an upside, so let’s
see what they can and can’t do. Myth busting 3D-printer style!
Essentially these should all do the same thing: When using autoleveling on a 3D printer or
even on other machines that need their tool to be at a perfect distance from a workpiece,
like a PCB router, these sensors probe a few different points on the surface and then compensate
for any misalignment of the bed or workpiece. Since the sensor itself is the only input
the machine gets about how the surface is aligned or deformed, it’s kinda critical
that it senses stuff reliably and can even detect your surface. The easiest option are
inductive sensors, but those only detect metals and are useless for glass, then you’ve got
optical ones, which can detect any surface as long as it’s not totally transparent,
mechanical ones that physically extend to the surface and touch it, and lastly capacitive
sensors that will detect every surface and then some. To test their repeatability, I
built this assembly that should provide a near-perfect linear motion for testing the
sensors. Essentially, it’s an IGUS W rail, which as a sliding mate, should have a better
repeatablity than ball bearings, and the backlash these typically have doesn’t matter much
since gravitiy is essentially pre-tensioning things here, then we’ve got another IGUS
part, a 2mm pitch trapezoid spindle attached to a 0.9° stepper motor the two shafts here
are touching inside the coupling, so we’re not getting any springiness. Again, to take
care of any tipping effects on the rail, it’s mounted off-center. The entire thing is driven
with an MKS Gen board that was literally sitting in the “scraps” bin, and a few lines of
Arduino code. And yes, you can still run standard Arduino code by itself on any 3D printer board
that would otherwise run the Marlin firmware or similar. All it does is to run the sensor
into the surface, backs up by a bit and then does that again 41 more times. In the end,
it reports the standard deviation of all measurements, which essentially tells us what sort of precision
we can expect from each sensor. To check that this construction even worked as intended,
I mounted a steel rod to the carriage and let it close a circuit as it touched the aluminum
block, and that came in with a repeatability much better than one micron, and basically,
it was never further off than a single microstep. Yes, the microstepping might not be perfect,
but it’s still an indicator that this apparatus works pretty well for these measurements.
So the units I’ve got lined up here are four different industrial inductive sensors,
the smaller 2mm trigger distance, 5V type, a 4 and 8mm type and the Prusa PINDA probe,
and yes, Prusa definitely has the smallest and shortest one of them all. Also in the
category of inductive sensors is the one from the BQ Hephestos 2, but that one turned out
to be defective, so I couldn’t include it. The capacitive ones are also industrial types,
with 8 and 20mm sensing distances, this huge guy was actually pretty expensive in comparison
at around 8 bucks, and even worse, it also didn’t work. Bummer. Mechanical probes are
the BLTouch and a standard microswitch with and without the lever, the BLTouch retracts
on its own, while a switch like this will need some sort of servo to lift it up, which
will introduce inaccuracies on top of what the sensor itself can do. And lastly, the
optical sensors are David Crocker’s infrared probe I got from Think3DPrint3D and a Sharp
sensor that outputs an analog voltage according to how far away it senses an object, which
is really cool, but needs a comparator to generate that on/off signal the board requires.
So that’s how we’re going to do it, let’s get to mythbusting! #1 Optical Sensors can sense plain glass.
That’s actually one that’s a bit more complex than it might look like at first sight.
Glass is transparent, obviously, at least to the naked eye. But because these sensors
work with infrared light, what they see could be completely different to what we see. These
sensors work based on reflected light, so having a surface that is glossy like this
could throw them off as well. Now, the simple answer is yes, both the optical sensors can
detect that sheet of glass. David Crocker’s sensor easily detects the glass, but the Sharp
sensor gets thrown off track quite a bit. First off all, it requires a much larger distance
to trigger at all, and even then it started drifting and eventually smashed into the glass.
The custom sensor did trigger reliably against glass, but still came with a huge penalty
in precision: The readings onto glass had a tolerance fifteen times as large as the
ones onto an opaque block. So while it works, it’s not something that is really advisable. #2 You can just run a standard 6 to 36V probe
from 5V Ok, this one is actually easy to test. Out
of all the 6 to 36V probes, none worked on 5V except the 8mm capacitive one. And even
then, it was much less sensitive than on 12V and only triggered against metal parts, while
with the higher supply voltage and a voltage divider on the output, it reliably also triggered
against printed parts and had a larger trigger distance than on 5V.
So that one is busted. #3 Capacitive probes are unreliable
So the theory with capacitive probes is that they sense pretty much anything – Plastic,
glass, wood, metal, humans, etc. The problem is, things like moisture in the air also influence
the readings – in theory. So as a really simple test, I let the system do 21 measurements
and then just started breathing over the sensor. And oh boy, did that throw it off. Almost
instantly, it started triggering about 200µm earlier – that’s 0.2mm, so basically a full
layer height off target. So even if you had a less extreme humidity change, it would still
throw the sensor off by a significant amount. I also did the same with the inductive sensors
and while they did show a marginal change, it was always in the single-digit micron range,
which might as well have been from thermal expansion. Speaking of the topic, the capacitive
sensor also showed, by far, the greatest deviation when blasted with a hairdryer on low.
So are capacitive sensor unreliable and unprecise? Well, if you look at the base reading in a
consistent environment, they aren’t that bad, but as soon as anything changes, you
will run into issues. #4 Probing slower gets you better readings
There are a few things that go into this – first off, some sensors, like the Sharp optical
one only take a reading a few times per second, so by the time they trigger, you might already
be past the point that would be the perfect spot. The same thing might be true for the
printer’s firmware, which only reads values every now and then. The code I’m using is
checking the sensor after every microstep, so that shouldn’t be an issue. But still,
sensor delay etc still are. So every sensor was tested at two different speeds – 1.35mm/s
and twice as fast, so 2.7mm/s, which is about the range you would expect a normal Z-axis
to move at. And basically every single sensor was less precise when run at the faster speed.
They all showed about 20% better repeatiability at the slower speed, some a bit less, some
a bit more, so while that’s not going turn a great sensor into an unusable one, or vice-versa,
it’s still a considerable improvement if you just need that extra bit of precision. #5 Sensors drift with heat
So you might have noticed the effect that when you run the autoleveling cycle with the
bed cold, the nozzle height will end up slightly different than when probed hot. And this is
very real effect, but after testing all the relevant sensors, I’m not quite sure that
the sensors themselves are actually the problem there. It looks like the larger the trigger
distance is, the larger the temperature drift is going to be.The inductive and optical ones
were all decent, maybe not the 8mm inductive one, but the others are all at least usable
when heated up. Though what also played into this was the apparatus simply heated and expanded,
too, so the measured trigger point unavoidably moved back, too. What could also play into
this is that at higher temperatures, copper and aluminum are less conductive, so for the
sensor, it’s as if there was a thinner sheet of material, which shortens the trigger distance. #6 Just use aluminum tape for inductive sensors
So the myth is that if you want the advantages of an inductive sensor, you can simply use
some aluminum tape, even on the bottom of a glass sheet and the sensor will still trigger.
So I used some standard aluminum tape, and the 4 and 8mm inductive sensors do trigger
against just the roll of material, but none of the inductive sensors actually triggered
against a layer of tape, even on the top surface of a glass sheet. So while multiple layers
might work, they are going to add some thickness, and even then, you’re only going to get
a fraction of the nominal trigger distance. And that leads us into #7 Larger trigger distance
sensors are less precise While none of the industrial sensors are actually
made to detect a set distance precisely each time, they can still be incredibly good at
it. For the inductive sensors, I had 2, 4 and 8mm types, and they all performed virtually
identical. They all achieved sub-micron repeatibilities, except for the 5V, 2mm type, and even that
one was better than 2µm. So that’s busted. #8 Inductive sensors trigger much closer when
sensing aluminum Before I try and explain why this is the case
and end up with half the viewers and getting bored and the other half getting ready to
roast me, let’s just stick to the facts: Yes, inductive sensors do lose quite a bit
of their trigger distance, even against a solid block of aluminum. The distance the
sensor says is against iron or steel, and with aluminum, you get about half of that.
Capacitive sensors aren’t affected by this. and last, #9 Anything sensor with a standard
deviation better than 50µ is probably good enough
And this one is from the BLTouch kickstarter campaign – the sensor measured in with a standard
deviation of about 2.5µ. Let’s take a step back and look at what the standard deviation
means. Say you have a bunch of measurements and you plot out how many of them are how
far off. Typically, noisy sensors like show a normal distribution, which looks like this.
All the standard deviation says is that about ⅔ of the measurements are better than that
standard deviation range. So with a bed leveling approach that uses just three points, on average,
two of them will be measured more precisely than the standard deviation, and one of them
will be worse. In turn, this point then, again, has about a ⅔ chance of falling within the
range of two standard deviations, which means that, statistically, every three prints, that
50µ sensor is going to have be off by more than + – 100µ or 0.1mm. And if you’ve ever
played around and experienced the difference 100µ can make to the first layer of a print,
you’ll probably agree that that’s too much.
Now, of course, a more precise sensor can still have those measurements that are far
off, but it’s much less likely to happen. So if you look at the measured standard deviations
of the sensors I’ve tested, i’d say they are all very usable, maybe with the exception
of the SHARP optical sensor and the capacitive one, everything else is, like, really good.
Out of those, the BLTouch performed the worst, but if you take it a bit slower, it’s still
way more than good enough. So yeah, that’s the story behind all the
different sensor options. What surprised me was how precise the inductive sensors turned
out to be, I was expecting them to be much noisier. What I’d also like to retest is
the Sharp sensor, this one is the analog type, but they are also making ones just trigger
at a set distance, and I think that might make it a bit less noisy. This video is sponsored by Aleph Objects,

The Best Home Security Cameras of 2020


Gabe Turner: Hey, folks. This is Gabe at Security Baron. Today, I’m going to show you the best home
security cameras. [background music] Gabe: In today’s video on the best home security
cameras, I’m going to be giving you my favorite cameras in a number of categories, spanning
from best for apartments, to best wireless, to best budget cameras, so that you have all
the information you need to pick the right camera for you. We have reviews for each one of these cameras
at securitybaron.com. Head on over there to get full details on
how each one of these cameras performs, along with comparisons of the various categories. Along with that, you’ll get tips on how to
use each device and even guides on where you should place your home security cameras in
your home. For all that information and more, head on
over to securitybaron.com. [music] Gabe: The first category in our best home
security cameras video is best for apartments. Here we are going with the Nest Cam Indoor
because it is incredibly flexible. I mean that in a literal sense. Not only can it be placed just about anywhere
with the mounting harbor that it comes with, the magnetization that it can do or even the
fact that you can just set it on shelve, but it’s flexible literally. You can essentially get into any angle and
position to watch wherever you’d like inside of your home. On top of that, it’s esthetically pleasing
and petite so it’s going to fit in just about anywhere. In fact, our only design gripe is that the
white cord is a bit dissidence with the gun metal exterior. With that being said, I found it to really
reflect well on the rest of my colorful home. The video quality on the Nest Cam Indoor is
solid. It boasts 1080p high definition video along
with the 130-degree field of view. It’s capturing everything well and it has
that eight times digital zoom so you can really go in and see exactly what’s taking place. When it comes to night vision, it has eight
infrared LEDs to make sure that you’re capturing everything that’s happening in the darkness. If you see me moving around this room in the
darkness, you’ll note that I’m within 10 feet but it’s capturing my features well and it’s
just got solid video quality. Now, to save and share all this day and night
clips that you’ve been taking with the Nest Cam Indoor, you’re going to want to sign up
for Nest Aware which is a subscription that you can pay for either monthly or annually. This gives you not only 30 days of cloud storage,
but also 24/7 continuous recording. You can go back in history, over the course
of a few days, and see absolutely everything that has transpired within the view of your
camera. Now, it can be a bit spendy, this Nest Aware
program, but Nest says that they are completely revamping the program in January 2020, to
make it much more affordable. Now, additionally, with Nest Aware, you have
the ability to set up and customize your own activity zones and person alerts. You can get all the notifications that you
care about directly to your mobile device. When it comes to the integration of your Nest
Cam Indoor with your Google Assistant, it’s useful because you can throw that video feed
directly to your Google Chromecast or a Google Nest Hub Max, just using your voice. Overall, if you’re somewhat living in an apartment,
the feature set and functionality of the Nest Cam Indoor is probably right for you. [music] Gabe: Hold on. I hope you’re enjoying today’s video on the
best home security cameras, to be kept up to date on the newest in, home security cameras,
smart home security, cybersecurity, and more, subscribe to our channel Security Baron. We’re dropping new content weekly. All right let’s get back to the video. [music] Gabe: The next category in our best home security
cameras list is the best wireless camera, and here we’re going with the Arlo Pro 3. Now not only does the Arlo report that the
Arlo Pro 3 will work for a number of months on a single charge, but it’s also really easy
to charge. You simply take the Arlo Pro 3 off of its
magnetic mount and use the magnetic charging cable that comes with it. They connect via CNC very easily. You let it charge for a few hours and boom,
you’re ready to go for another few months. Now when it comes to video quality, the Arlo
Pro 3 does not disappoint. It can record motion alerts up to 2K resolution,
so things are coming through nice and clearly. It has HDR capacity. When it comes to night vision, it’s bringing
not only an impressive infrared night vision but also the ability to use a spotlight that
comes at the top of the device to give you color night vision. If you want to look at something very closely,
any particular element in any frame, you can use the 12 times digital zoom to ensure that
you’re capturing that exact moment, at the level you want it to be. Now, on top of that impressive video quality,
it has solid two-way audio quality as well. You can have a nice conversation with someone
on the other side of the camera. Recorded Voice: I can hear you. It sounds good. Sounds good. Gabe: If talking is an element of the relationship
you want to have with your Arlo Pro 3, you can talk to it using Amazon and Google’s virtual
assistant. In fact, it can even talk back to you when
it comes to the Apple Watch, which I use to let it send me notifications on what it has
seen. Arlo gives you multiple options for saving
the clips you get from your Arlo Pro 3. You can of course use the cloud storage option. You have various ones delivered by the Arlo
smart plan or you can use the local SD card, that you can place inside of your Arlo base
station. Which allows you to record things directly
to that device. You can see for a number of reasons, the Arlo
Pro 3 takes the cake as our top wireless camera. [music] Gabe: The next category in our list of best
home security cameras is best indoor camera. Here we’re going with the Nest IQ Indoor,
because it’s artificial intelligent, smart platform integration, and video quality simply
put it a cut above the rest. Now, with the Nest Cam IQ indoor, the first
thing that’s going to grab your attention are the artificial intelligence capabilities. Things like supersite, which is the ability
of the Nest IQ Indoor to follow a human being in space as they walk around, or the familiar
face library where it can begin to recognize those people, who are consistently around
your home. It can make sure that it doesn’t notify you
when it’s those people in space, and only when it’s someone like a stranger, along with
just person detection. Where it can distinguish between human beings
and other moving objects. That intelligence extends to the very device
itself. When we’re talking about smart platform integrations,
where the Nest IQ Indoor has a Google Assistant built in. What does that mean? It means I can talk directly to the device,
and I can hear it well with the very loudspeaker that’s built in. If I have any questions, I don’t have to walk
to another room to my Google Nest Hub Max or my Google Home Mini or Google Nest Mini. I can speak directly to the Nest Cam IQ Indoor. Finally, when it comes to video quality, it’s
delivering as you’d expect from a high-end Nest product. It has a 4K sensor that gives you crisp 1080p
high definition video or 130-degree field of view and 12 times digital zoom. If you are worried about the darkness, you
shouldn’t be. It has numerous infrared LED sensors to make
sure it’s capturing everything that’s taking place in the dark. Overall, does a pretty solid job when it comes
to video. All in all, with this premium feature set
of artificial intelligence, smart platform integration and stellar video quality, we’re
giving the Nest Cam Indoor our top pick for best indoor camera. [music] Gabe: The next category on our list of best
home security cameras, is best wireless indoor camera. Here we’re going with the Ring Stick Up Cam
Battery. Now, if you want a great affordable camera
that doesn’t require you to run a wire to an inconvenient location, the Ring Stick Up
Cam Battery is the camera for you. The device is a sense to set up and connect
to the rest of your ring ecosystem. Despite its portability and battery life,
the Ring Stick Up Cam Battery is not skimping on video quality. Where it has 1080p high definition video and
a 130-degree field of view. You can see me roaming around the room well,
and that applies equally for the night vision board. It has powerful infrared LEDs to ensure that
you’re capturing what’s happening in the dark. Along with that great vision you want to have
great audio quality and that is the case with the Ring Stick Up Cam Battery. Which has improved upon its predecessor the
Ring Stick Up Cam, by including noise cancellation features, that help minimize background noise
and improve the quality of two-way conversation. Maybe what is most impressive about the Ring
Stick Up Cam Battery, is the value of the device itself. It’s not only affordable in the hardware sense,
but even that ring protect plan is $3 a month with 60 days of cloud storage. I can save and share my video clips to my
heart’s content. You can see why the Ring Stick Up Cam Battery
holds our top spot for best wireless indoor cam. [music] Gabe: Next category in our best home security
cameras list is best for outdoor, and here it is unquestionably the Nest IQ Outdoor,
because it brings unparalleled features and functionality outside of your home. When it comes to durability, hardiness, how
tough it is, the Nest IQ Outdoor is more than a pretty exterior. It’s going to handle rain, sleet, snow, sun,
and do all that while hitting you back with some nice visuals. It has a 4K sensor providing 1080p, high definition
video, HDR so it can capture things when it’s sunny. A 130-degree field of view and digital zoom
and tracking capabilities. It’s really a cut above the rest, when it
comes to video quality. That extends to night vision where it has
16 infrared LEDs, to make sure that there’s not a thing happening in the dark that this
cam is missing. With the Nest Aware subscription, you’re going
to get cloud storage 24/7 continuous recordings. You can go back and see any moment of time
exactly as it transpired. Even used a very fun time-lapse feature to
watch just the trees moving over time, the sun positioning itself across the sky. These are all fun useful elements with the
Nest IQ Outdoor. Nest Aware also gives you access to an advanced
feature set like person alerts, familiar face detection, and supersite which is essentially
your Nest IQ Outdoor following an individual around as they move in space. It’s fun and useful for trying to see exactly
what someone was doing in your front yard, last night. The Nest IQ Outdoor has Google Assistant built
in, so it can function as a Google Nest Mini even outside. It should be easy to see why the Nest IQ Outdoor
with its number of features and level of functionality, is our best outdoor home security camera. [music] Gabe: The next category in our list is the
best home security camera for pet owners, and here we’re going with the Ring Indoor
Cam. The Ring Indoor Cam is great for pet owners
because it gives you the ability to constantly monitor your pet. Along with that set a specific zone so you
can know exactly what’s going on in the spaces that are important to you within your home. When it comes to seeing your pups in these
zones, don’t worry. It has an impressive 1080p high definition
video, 115-degree field of view and digital zoom. There’s not a moment of mischief that you’re
going to be missing with your favorite animal. Beyond that if you would like to be checking
in on things from a different room, and you want to send that video feed to another device,
you can use the Google and Amazon virtual assistant to watch what’s happening in front
of your Ring Indoor Cam on a different device. When it comes to installing your Ring Indoor
Cam, fortunately it’s a really easy project. It takes you about five minutes. Using the mobile application and the setup
process. You don’t miss many glasses being pushed off
the ledge by your kitten. I really enjoyed the mobile application experience
as well. I find it easy to navigate. I want to go watch or share clips from my
Ring Indoor Cam that entire process is intuitive and straightforward. You can understand why we’ve picked the Ring
Indoor Cam as our best cam for pets. [music] Gabe: The next category on our best home security
cameras list, is most affordable and here we’re going with the Wyze Cam v2. The Wyze Cam v2 is just $20 yet it’s bringing
you a number of useful features. Let’s begin with its video quality. The Wyze Cam v2 is bringing you 1080p, high
definition video, digital zoom and a 110-degree field of view. You can know as I walk around the room that
the color is pretty vivid. Things are coming in pretty nicely, especially
if you think about how much you’re spending per pixel. It’s a really impressive device. When it goes into night vision, I can still
see things rather well with this infrared LED capability. What might be even more impressive about the
Wyze Cam, is that you have multiple ways in which you can save your footage. You get 14 days of free cloud storage, so
you can access it anywhere in the world. It’s really easy, but you also have a local
storage option in gigabytes upon gigabytes of local storage available to you. You place that micro SD card directly in the
Wyze Cam itself. From there, you can actually do continuous
recording, which means that you can just have a long stream of uninterrupted footage, when
it comes to your Wyze Cam. Another impressive element with the Wyze Cam,
is the fact that is bringing some pretty advanced features, that you’d expect from much more
expensive counterparts. Features like customizable motion zones where
you can really dial in exactly where you’re going to be detecting motion with the Wyze
Cam for your home’s security. Even elements like beautiful time lapses. For time lapses, I like to watch things like
flowers blooming. In my chance I like to watch my plants after
I’ve watered them in my home. You can capture all of that with this Wyze
Cam and you only paying $20 for all that capacity. This is why it’s very easily our top pick
for best home security cameras, when it comes to affordability. [music] Gabe: The final category in today’s list of
best home security cameras is the best affordable camera with artificial intelligence. Here we’re going with the Tend Indoor 2. Coming in at $60. The Tend Indoor 2 brings you superior artificial
intelligence, especially when it comes to facial recognition technology. How does it work? You simply put in the name of each person,
as they come into your space. It could be you, your spouse, your friend. You’re going to put in your name, and over
time the Tend Indoor 2 will begin to recognize the faces. Building out that library no matter what angle
you’re looking at the camera from. That’s useful because then it can lean on
people it does not recognize, are coming into the space. Even timestamp the moment that they walk in
which is useful for those of us who like to know exactly what’s taking place in our home. The video quality itself on the Tend Indoor
2 is pretty nice. It’s coming through with that 1080p, high
definition video, 125-degree field of view, and things look pretty good. You see me walking around the room, you can
definitely make me out pretty well. It also does a pretty admirable job when it
comes to night vision with its infrared LED capabilities. Another great element of the Tend Indoor 2,
is the fact that it comes with seven days of free cloud storage. When you buy the device, you get for the rest
of your life, seven days of cloud storage. The Tend Indoor 2 is useful in this regard
because of intuitiveness of the mobile application. When I go to my clips, I want to download
them or share them or just view the clips. It’s all very intuitive, very easy to navigate,
because of that mobile application experience and how clearly things are laid out. This is why it’s clear to us that the Tend
Indoor 2 is the best afford Artificial Intelligence home security camera. [music] Gabe: All right, we’ve gone over a lot of
