2021.10.20 11:43 ManMcManly Through a Shimmering Looking Glass - Augmented reality and the future of warfare
Check out the front page of last month's Science & technology section: an Economist article mentioning Microsoft's IVAS kit.
America’s army would like tactical intelligence pertinent to a soldier’s mission to pop up similarly on a transparent visor attached to his helmet, no hands required. And for this capability, it is spending big. In March it announced a deal with Microsoft to build such a system. This could, over the course of a decade, cost a staggering $21.9bn.I know most on this subreddit will already be aware of Microvision connection to Microsoft through IVAS, but this I found this article informative and encouraging. I think it is worth underscoring how transformative this technology can be, both in its use in combat, and its effect on Microvision's reputation and valuation.
The army has dubbed the kit IVAS (Integrated Visual Augmentation System). David Marra, who runs Microsoft’s end of the project, describes it as a holographic computer. The displays produced, he says, appear “locked to the real world”, even as a wearer moves and shifts gaze.
IVAS pulls off this wizardry by crunching and synthesising several types of data. A GPS receiver locates the wearer within centimetres. Instruments fitted with accelerometers and gyroscopes provide information on how he is moving around. Cameras track eye movements. IVAS must also be aware of a soldier’s environment. This relies on lidar, an optical equivalent of radar. An array of sensors record the time it takes infrared laser pulses bounced off nearby objects to return. That allows those objects’ distances to be calculated. Machine-vision software that recognises those objects then keeps track of how they move. Mr Marra describes the process as a “continuous rendering of the xyz co-ordinates of everything”.
IVAS must calculate with extraordinary speed where on a headset’s visor to display graphics. A latency of just seven milliseconds risks causing vestibular ocular discomfort, a type of dizziness that has long plagued the development of realistic displays of augmented and virtual reality. In most circumstances, Mr Marra says, IVAS operates well within that limit.

2021.10.20 11:43 DefinitelyNotMagnus Will I get paid for holidays I’ve booked but not used and remaining holidays once I leave?
I still have 10 days leave left and they reset in Jan. I have also been forced to book off the Christmas period with the exception of 24th and 25th using my holiday entitlement. I will be leaving my company in a month, would I get paid into my final pay check the remaining 10 days and also the days I have booked off over the Christmas period?

2021.10.20 11:43 Dainathon Any fixes for S-Pen writing off screen?
I use my Fold 3 and S Pen for school every day and not too long after receiving it I noticed it sometimes would write while I was just holding the pen over the screen.
Google showed me that it's due to the pen having a pressure sensor inside that is being triggered, and that it can be "fixed" by replacing the tip
Well, I replaced the tip with another and the problem went away for a bit but now it's back. I've been trying to deal with it but it can be very frustrating when it happens a lot in a shorter period of time
I'm just wondering if anyone else has delt with this and found any sort of fix beyond just temp-fixes like reinserting the tip or pushing the tip against a surface
I'm probably gonna just get it replaced under warranty but since I'm using the pen daily for school, I'd rather avoid that if possible

I'm in town working the fair. Of course I didn't think to bring my discs but maybe there's a rental? I'm right by the airport but I could go for a drive.

La verdad que no sé muchas jergas españolas, deseo que aprenda más para que me soñé más como un hispanohablante. Recientemente he estado viendo bastantes series mexicanos y muchas de tus jergas son formadas por la palabra “pedo”. Eso me parece muy chistoso y interesante.

I have a Mauser Argentino 1891 that I am looking to get rid of, and I'm not sure what would be the method to sell it. I live in a small area, and there aren't many collectors interested in it.
