Stress-testing the Battlefield 5 beta on Xbox One X and PS4 Pro • Eurogamer.net

Battlefield 5 builds on the Frostbite technology in some exciting ways, and this week’s beta gives us our first look at how the new DICE game presents and performs on console hardware. In the wake of the recent Battlefield 1 Xbox One X update, can the developer follow up that excellent rendering showcase with another solid work-out for the Scorpio Engine – and just how closely can PS4 Pro match it? Content-wise, what we get in the beta is fairly straightforward. There’s a conquest mode supporting up to 64 players – giving us a full stress test of the engine and netcode – across the canals of Rotterdam and the snowy slopes of Narvik. But while each map looks beautiful in its own way, it’s hard to shake the sense this is still early, unoptimised code – as you’ll soon see. Map design is the real highlight here. These two beautifully designed areas build on Frostbite’s ability to push tessellated detail on buildings, many of which are destructible with the right vehicle. Parallax occlusion maps are also a standout point on the Narvik stage’s snow, adding depth and pop to the hilly inclines leading to a village. You even hav...

How many hydroponic gardeners does it take to change a light bulb? In the world of hydroponic gardening, light bulbs are a big deal.

The highest quality light is in the #1 spot, with the rest of the list in no particular order in terms of quality. This complee system from Hydrofarm is a great choice for beginners or anyone with a smaller sized garden. THis is my favorite pick on this list because it is not just a bulb but an entire system in one package.

World Music Institute is thrilled to present Tal National at Brooklyn’s Littlefield on February 23, two weeks after the release of the band’s newest album Tantabara on Fat Cat Records. By the time Tal National reached international acclaim with 2013’s Kaani, the band’s first release outside of Niger, they had spent more than a decade crisscrossing Niger, usually on dirt pathways through the Sahara, playing epic five-hour sets, seven days a week, selling their CDs on street corners. In the process, they became Niger’s most popular band. Audiences in the West and critics quickly embraced the band’s singular and well-honed sound. Making Sense of the Civil W...

Podcast Episode 180: Rigid Foam Over Roofs, Warm-Climate Insulation Details, and Fuel-Efficient Work Trucks

Follow the Fine Homebuilding Podcast on your favorite app. Subscribe now and don’t miss an episode: Patrick, Matt, and Kiley start today’s conversation with details about two recent photo shoots for the magazine–one in Cooperstown, NY, where Matt captured a steel-framed, walnut-treaded modern staircase installation; and another in Kiley’s own backyard, where fellow FHB staffer Rob Wotzak built a small but elegant woodshed of his own design. Then it was on to several questions from the Fine Homebuilding inbox, including one from a listener who wonders how we can constantly talk about building energy efficient homes without mentioning the gas-guzzling trucks we travel to the job site in every day. Doug from Colorado writes: Just watched podcast 170 and as always it was full of interesting info. I strongly agree with the comments about the cost of cabinets. Anytime I watch one of the home improvement shows on TV I am astounded by the cost of kitchen remodels. When I built our house the total cost of materials for cabinets for the kitchen, bathrooms and large pantry was well under $3,000. These were all stain grade which meant hardwood plywood not MDF. On the other hand I got just e...

This 3D machined Möbius sculpture is a perfect collectible for the math-obsessed

You’ve probably heard of or seen a Möbius strip, possibly even in the Avengers Endgame movie. Simply put, it is a loop with a half twist in it. This half twist allows the Möbius to be single sided and single edged. There’s no front or back to the Möbius strip, to the math inclined it is it is non-orientable. The surface you see is both the front AND the back, and if you traversed its surface with a pencil, you will end up where you began. It literally is an infinite loop. The Möbius strip is a fascinating piece of geometry that, given its weird topology, is quite challenging to reproduce. This particular desktop sculpture is made using a complex 5-axis CNC milling machine setup that is capable of carving out the complex Möbius geometry. This 3D Möbius Strip sculpture comes from AltDynamic, the same guys who brought us the Orbiform and the PentaOrbiform, seemingly impossible pieces of un-spherical geometry that could roll around just like a sphere does, thanks to the fact that they’re constant-width solids. Taking their love for geometry and metal to the next level, AltDynamic decided to pay homage to the Möbius strip… a piece of geometry that they claim has never ever been fully...

[Hristo Borisov] shows us his clever home automation project, a nicely packaged WiFi switchable wall socket. The ESP8266 has continuously proven itself to be a home automation panacea. Since the ESP8266 is practically a given at this point, the bragging rights have switched over to the skill with which the solution is implemented. By that metric, [Hristo]’s solution is pretty dang nice. It’s all based around a simple board. An encapsulated power supply converts the 220V offered by the Bulgarian power authorities into two rails of 3.3V and 5V respectively. The 3.3V is used for an ESP8266 whose primary concern is the control of a triac and an RGB LED. The 5V is optional if the user decides to add a shield that needs it. That’s right, your light switches will now have their own shields that decide the complexity of the device. The core module seen to the right contains the actual board. All it needs is AC on one side and something to switch or control on the other The enclosure is not shown (only the lid with the shield connectors is seen) but can be printed in a form factor that includes a cord to plug into an outlet, or with a metal flange to attach to an electrical box in the wa...
