Nvidia using Artificial Intelligence to Create Awesome (but Fake) Slo-Mo Videos

Typically, the process to create fake slow motion videos is a difficult one, as it requires software to stretch a video clip out by creating hundreds-and-hundreds of non-existent frames to place in-between existing frames. The result of this hard process often yields low-quality success, as it produced stuttering and unconvincing visual quality. Nvidia aims to take advantage of the incredible image-processing potential of deep learning to create a method to produce high-quality fake slow motion videos from a regular clip.

Microview Shrinks Arduino Into A Tiny, Little OLED Module

Are you like myself and you desperately want a itsy-bitsy, tiny, little Arduino board with an OLED display? Just some of you? Well, that’s ok, ’cause I know other technophiles like myself want one! This is Microview’s new “chip-sized” Arduino, currently on Kickstarter, that costs $45. You may ask yourself  ‘what can it do,’ and the answer would be ‘ALL KINDS OF STUFF’! Basically, you’ll get a micro controller, a lot of inputs so you can drive the display via software, and you’ll be allowed to build awesome little projects using various sensors, motors, I/O devices, and much more.
