We’re just over a month out from our TC Sessions: Robotics + AI event at UC Berkeley on April 18. We’ve already announced a number of marquee guests for the event, including Marc Raibert, Colin Angle, Melonee Wise and Anthony Levandowski. Today we’ve got another exciting panel to unveil and as an FYI our early bird …

Destin Daniel Cretton will reportedly direct Marvel’s Shang-Chi movie.
Welcome, once again, to The Monitor, WIRED’s column devoted to the pop culture world. What’s been happening this week? Well, aside from Captain Marvel‘s continued dominance, we’ve got an Oscar-winning documentary landing on Hulu and some good news for Marvel’s first Asian American-led movie. Strap in, it’s gonna be a bumpy (but fun!) ride.
Marvel’s Shang-Chi Movie Has a Director
All the hype right now might be about Marvel’s first female-lead movie Captain Marvel, but that doesn’t mean that’s the only comic-book movie news worth talking about. In fact, word has just emerged that the studio has hired Destin Daniel Cretton to direct Shang-Chi, Marvel’s first superhero movie with an Asian lead. [...]read more
Augmented reality looked like it was supposed to a ubiquitous success, Apple and Google and Facebook seemed to say so, but things are taking a bit of time to get kicked off so the startups in the space are having to get real weird with it.
Adventurous is an augmented reality scavenger hunt geared towards families, but it drags in enough elements of the real world to make it a pretty robust experience. This isn’t your typical AR phone app that you pop open once. For one thing you have to be at a certain physical location in order to try it out, you also have to make an appointment, and, oh yeah, there are live actors involved.
This may be one of the more odd companies in Y Combinator’s latest startup batch, it’s basically a kind of tech-enabled live theater. The company’s co-founders acknowledge that [...]read more

The Wikipedia article of the day for March 15, 2019 is Planar transmission line. Planar transmission lines are flat, ribbon-shaped transmission lines with conductors, or in some cases dielectric (insulating) strips. They are used to interconnect components on printed circuits and integrated circuits working at microwave frequencies, since the planar lines are suited to the manufacturing methods for these components. Transmission line theory is used when the line is longer than a large fraction of a wavelength. At microwave frequencies, this distance is measured in millimetres, which is small enough that these lines can be used for constructing components as well as interconnecting them. The cross-section of the line is usually kept constant so that its electrical behaviour is highly predictable. The first planar transmission line, stripline, was conceived during World War II by Robert M. Barrett; other types [...]read more
Valve just announced that its Steam Link Anywhere software is now in open beta testing on Android, Raspberry Pi and Steam Link devices.
As a software successor to the original Steam Link hardware that Valve killed off at the end of last year, Steam Link Anywhere allows you to stream any game from your Steam library to whichever of those aforementioned devices you choose. Keep in mind you’ll need strong enough internet signal for both the home PC and whichever device you’re streaming to for the whole setup to work.
Before Valve killed it off at the end of last year, the Steam Link was the best way to stream your game library from your PC to your living room. The drawback, however, was that the Link only worked on your home network.
Steam Link Anywhere promises a more versatile experience, one that you can take with you… well, anywhere, and doesn’t require additional hardware.
The future of game-streaming
What Valve is doing with Steam Link Anywhere mirrors a lot of what’s happening elsewhere [...]read more
