I don't get it. Every year web browsers advertise improvements they made in how websites you browse are being isolated from each other in new ingenious ways. But I can't even begin to imagine any remotely sane program architecture in which they are not completely isolated from the beginning and by default. Who designs those things?
How come you didn't tell me about Theremin? You know me! You know tech, music and sci-fi are my favourite things!
There's literally a Star Trek episode where an alien plays an instrument by waving hands in the air and such a thing actually exists?
(or is everyone like "yea we had that in the kindergarten, what are you on about?")
A secret hardware project that I was participating in is finally public, so I can talk about it:
Basically there will be a CircuitPython-powered device given out to the participants of this year's EuroPython, and some workshops on programming it. It's a slightly modified version of my PewPew device, and the hope is that it can be used for teaching. It's cheaper than the micro:bit and more suited for games and other interactive programs.
@shadower Hmm, that leads me to another question: are there any where the technology is good, *and* the system is not socialist (or completely glossed over). In fact, are there even any capitalist utopias?
The "Ritual Of The Moon diary" series of articles by Alice Bell of @rockpapershot is basically the best piece of video game writing I've read in ages.
Game sounds great, the author's commentary is raw & honest & brilliant.
Obvs start with day 1 if you're going to read it, innit
The Play Station itself it a mixed bag. It boots up fast and there are no hardware or driver compatibility issues. Presumably no OS falling on its arse either.
BUT: multiplayer support in games is a (paid) PlayStation Plus subscription. And I still had to wait 2 hours to download an update.
I did not know this up front frankly, the idea of Sony upselling a gameplay feature like that never even crossed my mind.
Not it did and crossed I remain.
For games where I've got a choice, I'll stick with PC.
