In the not-too-distant future, eye-tracking technology will be a run-of-the-mill feature in many high-end vehicles, helping keep drivers’ eyes on the road. But Jaguar Land Rover has patented another use for the tech that allows cars to automatically trigger the rear window’s wiper so it’s always clean and clear when…
Jaguar unveiled their new car model to the world—the #NewXF—making it cross the Thames river, in London, over a two-inch-wide (34 mm) and 787-foot-long (240 meters) high-wire. The car made it successfully to the other side establishing a insane but, nonetheless, extraordinary new world record.
Jaguar Land Rover says they are developing a 360 Virtual Urban Windscreen that "will allow drivers to get a complete, unhindered view of the road." I can't wait for this to be real and standard in every car, although it's probably still a long time away. The best feature: Follow Me Ghost Car navigation.
I would love to use this Jaguar augmented reality windscreen. It's like turning your entire driving experience into a video game (I don't know if that is a good idea or not but it sure looks like fun.)
Rather than feeling embarrassed, the architect of the "Walkie Talkie" skyscraper at 20 Fenchurch street, London, seems completely flippant and amused by his car- and human-melting building. Check out this quote from an interview with The Guardian:
AMD has been going head-to-head with Intel in the PC market for years, so it's no surprise that they will be hot on Intel's heels in the mobile space, too. Yep, they have plans to design tablet CPUs. It's like two gorillas shrinking themselves to do battle in your pocket.
Bad news, child pornographers: you're now being hunted by a supercomputer. Over the course of the next year, one million processing hours on Jaguar, Oak Ridge Labs' 1.8 petaflop supercomputer, will be dedicated to ferreting out child porn's loathsome producers.
For a relatively low number of American dollars, you can own your own Atari TT 030 computer, used by testers to work on the Jaguar title Aliens vs. Predator and—according to the weird file show here—shenanigans. [eBay]
This is Jaguar, the new King of the Petaputer Hill, running at 1.75 petaflops-per-second. The Cray XT5 supercomputer was behind IBM's Roadrunnner for more than a year, until some clever scientist decided to paint a running Jaguar all over it.
My buddy Todd at TechFlash reports that Microsoft boss Steve Ballmer went on an anti-Apple rant yesterday in NYC, saying "the tide has really turned back" toward Microsoft products, adding "The [downturned] economy is helpful."
Driving would be way more fun if we didn't have to worry about the whole gas and brake thing, right? Sentience understands this, and their intelligent cruise control means you can finally forget about it.
It's like a geek soap opera. Just last week, Cray bragged that their updated Jaguar XT supercomputer was the world's fastest. Now this week, IBM responds to the trash talk with a number one ranking of their Roadrunner system on the newly published Top500 supercomputing list.Both the IBM and Cray systems break the…
According to Ian Callum, Jaguar's design director, the revised XF shall boast a reworked control interface—reworked by Apple, no less. In an interview with CAR magazine, Mr Callum said, "We have been working with Apple on control interfaces." Assuming Mr. Callum did not forget to add "an" before "Apple" in that…
