1969 dodge charger customized with 707hp hellcat engine
the current generation dodge challenger is a shinning example of a modern muscle car, and with the carmaker’s 707 horsepower hellcat engine, it’s a monster. but what if you could take all that modern power and combine it with a truly iconic muscle car of the past? that’s exactly what performance and restoration shop bumbera’s did, taking a 1969 charger and sticking in not just the hellcat engine, but the drivetrain and electronic systems as well.based in katy, texas, bumbera’s used a 2015 version of the 707hp hellcat engine, which dodge sells individually for custom projects, while the 1969 charger was supplied by a customer who requested the swap. they managed to outfit the car with the new engine and transmission, as well as the dashboard and several modern features like the infotainment system.the performance shop detailed the project on the their blog, revealing that this was a truly one-of-a-kind challenge, as the only other attempted hellcat swaps had been placing a 1969 body on top of a modern frame, or only replacing the engine and not the electronics and dash. in the end bumbera’s had to figure everything out on their own, including how to connect an estimated 12 miles of wiring between the hellcat system and the classic charger.after several months of work, they managed to get everything installed and functioning, including the modern steering wheel and paddle shift controls, automatic transmission, remote start, 8.4-inch touch screen, and air conditioni...

hot wheels announces mario kart toys for 2019
the trend of video games making the leap to real-life toys continues with a collaboration that’s obvious in hindsight: mattel’s hot wheels brand will be releasing toy cars based off of nintendo’s mario kart. the announcement was made at san diego comic-con 2018 this week, with eight die-cast models on display at the nintendo and mattel booths. the eight nintendo characters seeing their mario kart versions brought to life are luigi, bowser, peach, toad, yoshi, wario, rosalina, and, of course, mario himself. each toy will be priced at $5, however we’re still in for a wait as they won’t be hitting stores until june’s not clear if these eight characters will be the only hot wheels models released in the mario kart line, however a mattel representative did confirm that track playsets themed after nintendo’s racing game will also be available at launch, but didn’t mention specifics. let’s just hope one of the playsets is based on the iconic rainbow road track. oh, and a first-place-seeking blue shell accessory would be perfect too, but that’s just hopeful thinking.source polygonstory timeline

stanford wearable monitors stress hormone levels using sweat
stanford researchers have developed a new wearable that measures the wearer’s cortisol levels using sweat. cortisol, a vital hormone associated with stress, can be tested with existing methods, but they require several days for results. stanford’s creation eliminates that long wait period, providing important stress hormone numbers when they matter most. the project was lead by stanford university’s materials scientist alberto salleo. the team created a stretchy wearable patch, according to the university, that can be placed directly onto the patient’s skin, where it acquires sweat and measures cortisol levels with it. this method provides continuous monitoring that isn’t invasive.that wearable works via passive sweat wicking, pooling the wearer’s sweat into a small reservoir that is covered with a cortisol-sensitive membrane. the biggest requirement is for the wearer to work up enough of a sweat that they glisten, meaning they’ll likely need to hit the sauna or gym for the monitoring to work.the wearable is promising for various medical conditions that involve cortisol, which are difficult to treat due to the delay in measuring cortisol levels. continuous cortisol level monitoring could open the door for more effective medical treatments. a prototype of the device “appears to work” as the researchers intended, according to the university, though additional work may improve accuracy and reliability. in addition, the team may create a reusable patch that can ...

artificial on-demand meteor showers may dazzle future skies
the future may bring us on-demand meteor showers, at least if a tokyo-based startup has its way. ale is setting the foundation for the world’s first on-demand shooting stars, something that’ll involve a pair of micro-satellites containing small balls. these balls will emit a bright glow as they reach the planet’s atmosphere, providing a show for those on land.each micro-satellite is planned for its own mission, one set to happen in march 2019 and the second later that same year. the first launch will be facilitated by japan’s space agency, but the second is anticipated to launch on a private rocket. assuming everything goes according to plan, an artificial meteor shower is scheduled to happen over hiroshima in early seems the micro-satellites will take ale’s glowing balls stockpile into space, where they’ll then be ready to put on shows for earth. the startup isn’t revealing much about the balls within the micro-satellites — they’ll have a proprietary, secret formula that’ll prompt them to glow brightly as they plunge through earth’s atmosphere.a total of 800 balls are carried by the two satellites; the number of shows they can put on depends on how many “shooting stars” each event has. the company estimates its two micro-satellites could put on between 20 and 30 shows, and that they can be spread out through approximately 24 months. it’s unclear what color the balls will glow, though they can be tailored to different colors. whether ale ha...

guardians of the galaxy vol 3 director james gunn is no longer involved with the movie after controversial tweets were found on his twitter account. the tweets, which were published years ago and since deleted, include crude jokes and statements about pedophilia, rape, and more. gunn was dropped by disney after copies of his tweets were shared across twitter.gunn has been vocal in his criticism of president trump. in tweets published earlier today, conservative personalities tweeted more than a dozen screenshots of tweets published by gunn several years ago. each tweet, which were first surfaced by the daily caller, contain crude to offensive content often centered around pedophilia.following the revelation, disney released a statement denouncing gunn’s tweets, calling them “indefensible and inconsistent” with its values. disney has officially cut ties with gunn and fired him from guardians of the galaxy vol 3’s directing role. gunn has since offered his own explanation for the content, doing so in a multi-tweet statement. “many people who have followed my career know when i started, i viewed myself as a provocateur,” gunn said, “making movies and telling jokes that were outrageous and taboo.”gunn also states that he is “very, very different” than he was when those tweets were published, working to root his “work in love and connection and less in anger.” he also clarifies, “for the record, when i made these shocking jokes, i wasn’t living them out...

apple, sonos and fitbit could feel the pain with trump's new china tariffs
popular electronics from apple, sonos, fitbit, and others could be inadvertent victims in the newest batch of us tariffs on chinese goods, highlighting the potential hit on shoppers’ wallets by trump’s trade war. the us government has proposed $200 billion worth of new tariffs that could be applied as soon as this fall. currently, the proposal is in the public comment period, and the details off the tariffs may well change before their implementation. however early analysis of their potential impact has already highlighted some possible headaches for the electronics industry. that, it seems, is in part down to the fiendishly complex rules and classifications that authorities use to organize imports. depending on which of those classifications a product is assigned, manufacturers who have devices manufactured in china and then brought to the us could face a significant uptick in the cost of each. us customs and border patrol is responsible for deciding which category each product falls into, and according to reuters‘ analysis of those rulings, it could affect wearables, smart speakers, and more. for instance, the fitbit charge, charge hr, and surge fitness trackers are all classified as “data transmission machines” and thus fall foul of the proposed tariffs. the sonos play:3, play:5, and sub speakers are all included in that category as well. the original apple watch is deemed a “data transmission machine” too. as a result, they’re all subject to the suggested ...

pokemon go cheats face this tough new policy
ascending to the ranks of pokemon master is not an easy task. if you’re going to complete the pokedex and dominate the gym scene, you need to be committed to the cause, because there are hundreds of monsters to track down, catch, and evolve. it’s definitely not something for the faint of heart, but there are some pokemon go players out there who think they can claim all the glory without any of the hard put a finer point on it, they’re cheaters. perhaps nothing more than a product of the game’s immense popularity, cheaters have been trying to get an unfair advantage in pokemon go since day one, and today, niantic detailed a new policy that’s not very lenient on the more unsavory players among us. niantic’s new cheating policy is a three-strike one, but don’t take that to mean that it’s going to go easy on cheaters on their first and second offenses. the first strike is essentially a warning, which will surface an alert within the app that informs you that niantic has detected cheating on your account. beyond that alert, niantic says that it may “degrade” the your gameplay experience by removing rare pokemon encounters and preventing you from receiving new ex raid passes.the first strike will remain active for seven days, after which the gameplay experience will return to normal. if you continue to cheat after that, you’ll receive a second strike in which your account will be suspended entirely for “approximately” 30 days. cheat a third time, ...

disney is reviving star wars: the clone wars for its netflix rival
when disney took over lucasfilm, there were a lot of casualties in the expanded star wars universe. perhaps the casualty that hurt the most was star wars: the clone wars, an animated series on cartoon network that had just wrapped up season five when disney took the reins from george lucas. instead of giving the show a proper ending, disney decided to quickly cancel it, later releasing a series of “lost missions” on netflix.those lost missions were nice to see, but of course, they didn’t provide the tidy wrap up fans were hoping for. just when it seemed like the clone wars was going to remain unfinished forever, disney has announced that the show is coming back. in an announcement at san diego comic con, disney revealed that the clone wars will return for 12 more episodes, sharing a poster and a new trailer alongside the reveal.“the clone wars ended after five broadcast seasons — just as ahsoka left the jedi order,” disney’s announcement on the official star wars site reads. “a few post-season five episodes were later released as ‘the lost missions,’ but the story wasn’t over. fans have clamored for disney and lucasfilm to finish what was started ever since. and now it’s actually happening.”supervising director dave filoni will be returning for these additional twelve episodes, and at the moment, it’s unknown if these are indeed the final episodes of the series. in a brief interview with disney, filoni says that this is an opportunity to “put the...

ferrari just gave us a glimpse of its hybrid supercar tech
ferrari might not be the first automaker you’d associate with a hybrid engine, but the famed italian supercar-maker has cooked up an innovative new electric turbocharger that could deliver both performance and an iconic soundtrack. it’s another sign that, though ferrari has been cautious about electrified sports cars, the automaker isn’t dismissing the idea out of hand. one of the lingering concerns some high-end automakers have had about electrified supercars is the emotional connection. maserati – which has used ferrari engines for its recent performance cars – flagged aural shortcomings as a primary concern about sports evs, for example. ferrari ceo sergio marchionne, meanwhile, said last year that in the face of the tesla roadster the automaker couldn’t avoid electrification, but promised the company would ease its way into the segment in a distinctly “ferrari” way.a possibility is outlined in a recently-published european patent application, spotted by autoguide, describing a potential electrically-operated turbocharger. intended to be deployed in a supercharged internal combustion engine, the turbocharger could not only compress air that would be used to help drive the engine, but also power electric motors on the wheels. while electric turbochargers aren’t new, ferrari’s implementation would be. typically, a turbo is used to compress air and force more into the engine, using exhaust gases from the engine itself to drive it. some automakers have used...

stardew valley multiplayer just got a pc release date
since the moment stardew valley launched back in 2016, multiplayer has been one of the most anticipated additions to the games. after a period of beta testing, it’s nearly ready to roll out on pc, mac, and linux. while it probably isn’t going to look a lot different from the beta that’s currently available, this is exciting news for more reasons than one.stardew valley‘s multiplayer launch was actually announced by way of a new trailer that was published just a few minutes ago. stardew valley version 1.3, which includes the game’s multiplayer component, will be officially available on pc, mac, and linux on august 1. a significant portion of the player base has likely already seen what it has to offer, as a publicly accessible beta has been available since the end of april.though multiplayer is the biggest new feature in version 1.3, that isn’t the only thing the update adds. there’s also some additional content to be found within the update, such as new heart events, new enemies, and new items. it isn’t quite as massive as some of stardew valley‘s previous content updates, but there will definitely be some new things to check out for those who aren’t really interested in multiplayer.1.3’s launch on pc is good news for other platforms as well. multiplayer support is currently planned for most platforms, including xbox one, playstation 4, and nintendo switch. now that the pc, mac, and linux version of 1.3 will soon be in the books, concerned ape and chuckl...

as surviving inhospitable trips go, nasa’s parker solar probe having to withstand more than a million degrees fahrenheit as it approaches the sun seems on paper like an insurmountable challenge. turns out, though, a mere 4.5-inch thick solar shield is all the spacecraft needs, as nasa has explained. the parker solar probe is expected to blast off this summer, the start of a seven year mission to the star at the center of our solar system. it’s designed to orbit through the sun’s corona, the fiercely hot region of the solar atmosphere that contains materials at temperatures greater than a million degrees fahrenheit. when there, nasa expects the probe to make 24 orbits as it takes measurements. given scientists have struggled to make us a hot pocket that can survive a simple kitchen microwave if you don’t get the timings right, a spacecraft surviving that sort of environment seems unlikely. in fact, though, the parker solar probe benefits from both some high-tech materials and a fistful of physics that make the whole thing a little more straightforward. on the physics side, it comes down to heat versus temperature. high temperature materials may be measured in the millions of degrees around the sun, but as they’re high moving and relatively scarce in number, they’re actually relatively low heat and transfer little energy. “the corona through which parker solar probe flies, for example, has an extremely high temperature but very low density,” nasa explains. “th...

facebook, google, microsoft, and twitter team to take the headache out of data transfers
moving your data between internet services is something that isn’t always easy or fast. this is especially true when you’re doing something like moving photos between social networks or music libraries and playlists between music streaming services. today, some of the biggest companies in the world announced that they’re going to do something about it, announcing the data transfer project.the data transfer project is the result of a team up between facebook, google, twitter, and microsoft. each of these companies (which the exception of microsoft for the moment) discussed the data transfer project in separate announcements today. the project is still in the early stages of development, but eventually, these four companies would like to see wide scale adoption across an array of services.while facebook and twitter merely touch on the core concepts of the data transfer project, google goes into a little more detail in its own announcement post. “the organizations involved with this project are developing tools that can convert any service’s proprietary apis to and from a small set of standardized data formats that can be used by anyone,” google writes, noting that so far, these four have developed adapters for “seven different service providers across five different types of consumer data.”on the security side of things, google says that services which agree to allow data transfers will need to require that individuals independently authenticate each account bef...

flashy and fiercely armored, new dinosaur shakes up old theories
when your fellow dinosaurs have big teeth and even bigger appetites, what’s a herbivore to do but develop some seriously impressive natural armor. that’s the case with akainacephalus johnsoni, a freshly-identified dinosaur the remains of which were extracted from a cache of ancient bones in utah. that site was first identified in 2008, in the kaiparowits formation of grand staircase-escalante national monument. rather than just a single specimen, preserved for millions of years, the fossils showed evidence of numerous species and their associated skeletons. one of them was a dinosaur nobody had ever seen before. turns out, while its existence may have been quiet until now, back when it was alive the akainacephalus johnsoni was quite the attention-seeker. the dinosaur was covered in armor, particularly around its snout, which prompted the natural history museum of utah paleontology team to give it its name, which means “spiky head.” from that point back, it was protected by a comprehensive husk of osteoderms.these bony deposits are effectively dinosaur armor plating, and ran all the way down to the club-like tail that gains akainacephalus johnsoni membership to the ankylosaurid species subset. it could well have been the most glamorous of the bunch, too. the paleontologists suggest that those armor plates would’ve given the dinosaur “a flashy, ornate appearance.”noted for their huge tails, which were used as defensive weapons, ankylosaurids hadn’t been identifi...

fujifilm's 5 new lenses include a groundbreaking f1.0 prime
fujifilm has unveiled a new range of x mount lenses, including teasing a groundbreaking prime lens that stands to be a world-first in mirrorless circles. two new models and three on the x mount lens roadmap have been detailed today, though of the five it may well be the fujinon xf33mmf1 r wr that gets photographers’ mouths watering. that’s a very large aperture prime, which fujifilm says is likely to be the first mirrorless lens with a maximum aperture of f/1.0 while still having autofocus capabilities. in short, we’re expecting incredibly artistic short depths of field, and probably some silky bokeh to go with it, too. sadly we’ll have to wait a little while for the new f/1.0 prime to make its appearance, but fujifilm does have two new lenses getting here sooner. first off is the fujinon xf8-16mmf2.8 r lm wr ultra-wide angle lens, with a full 20 elements in 13 groups. it has a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8, along with a focal length equivalent to 12-24mm in 35mm format. fujifilm is positioning it as perfect for landscape and architecture photography, as well as for nightscapes and astrophotography. its floating lens element – which shifts according to the position of the zoom – helps with edge-to-edge sharpness, the company claims, in addition to correcting the field curvature that you’d usually expect to encounter in an ultra-wide angle lens. a nano-gi coating on the rear of the two front lens elements should help cut ghosting and’s also weathe...

the note 9's success may seal the galaxy s plus' fate
samsung may consolidate its plus-sized galaxy s flagship with its note range, after several generations of increasing screen size – and struggling sales – have worn away the differentiation between the two. currently samsung offers the galaxy s9+ with a 6.2-inch display, and is expected to launch the 6.38-inch galaxy note 9 in just a few weeks time.the note 9 will continue to differentiate itself from other galaxy smartphones by virtue of the s pen, samsung’s digital stylus. that’s predicted to gain new functionality courtesy of an embedded bluetooth chip, together with updated software that will see samsung double-down on the galaxy note’s virtual notepad focus. all the same, many have pointed out the slim gap between what we’re expecting from the note 9 on august 9, and what the galaxy s9+ already offers. samsung began offering multiple sizes of its galaxy s-series flagship consumer smartphones back in 2015, with the launch of the galaxy s6. that was available in three styles – galaxy s6, galaxy s6 edge, and galaxy s6 edge+ – with either 5.1-inch or 5.7-inch super amoled screens. since then, the “plus” sized version has increased the same time, the galaxy note range has also adopted bigger and bigger panels, but the growth has been more conservative since the pen-enabled phablets were already relatively large to begin with. over the past few years, therefore, the delta between the largest galaxy s-series handsets and the note series has s...

nasa shows off incredibly clear images of saturn's moon titan
nasa has published six different images taken of saturn’s very interesting moon titan. the images represent some of the most seamless-looking global views of the surface of the icy moon ever produced. the super clear images were created using 13-years of data captured by the visual and infrared mapping spectrometer (vims) on the cassini spacecraft.the images are “smoothly combined” from a “multitude” of different observations made under a range of lighting conditions during the cassini mission. nasa has shown off vims maps of titan before, but those images had great variation in image resolution and lighting that resulted in obvious seams between different surface areas of titan.the new images are sans seams giving the best representation of how titan might appear to the causal observer if it was stripped of the hazy atmosphere. the reason nasa images the surface of titan with infrared rather than visible spectrum is that hazy atmosphere.the haze comes from small particles in the atmosphere called aerosols. the aerosols are in the upper atmosphere and can strongly scatter light. infrared wavelengths are used because the scattering and absorption of light viewed through what nasa calls “infrared windows” is much weaker.the second image here with the clear shots of titan around the yellow hazy center show the vims infrared images compared to the hazy center image of titan taken in visible light. the images show off the complex surface with varied geological featur...
