The Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers—which at first glance look like tiny additions meant to support the tablet-like portable/home console it can slide into—is actually packed with tech.

For one thing: there’s motion control. This isn’t too surprising, considering Nintendo’s console predecessors featured motion control-equipped Wii remotes.

In addition to a joystick, shoulder buttons and the standard four action buttons, the controllers also feature a capture button. Just like the PS4′s…

The AQI, which is used by China to measure air pollution, is officially limited at 500.

On Thursday morning, NASA successfully launched a group of eight micro-satellites for its Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System (CYGNSS) mission via a rocket launched from the belly of the large Orbital ATK Stargazer airplane. And, yes, it was as cool as it sounds.

After attempts to launch were scrapped twice this week, first on Monday and then Wednesday, the mission successfully kicked off on…

Amsterdam’s night mayor has an alternative for Sydney’s lockout laws

Amsterdam and Sydney are polar opposites when it comes to nightlife.

While the Dutch capital contains numerous clubs with 24-hour licenses, Australia’s largest city has operated strict lockout laws since 2014.

Patrons are forbidden from entering licensed venues located in Sydney’s city centre after 1:30 a.m., and alcohol service is cut at 3 a.m. on the dot, due to concerns about alcohol-fuelled violence.

It’s a measure which “doesn’t…

From 360 video to 3D emoji, there’s a big movement from Microsoft and others to make 3D imagery accessible to everyone. However, the act of scanning a real-word environment — a room and everything in it, for example — remains an expensive chore, involving hours of manual measurements and subsequent building in 3D software.

That will no longer be the case if the Structure Sensor has anything to say about it. Introduced by Occipital two years ago as a way to quickly scan objects and spaces and…

A federal judge ruled Monday that Mississippi clerks cannot cite their own religious beliefs to recuse themselves from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves’ ruling blocks the state from enforcing part of a religious objections bill that was supposed to become law Friday.

Reeves is extending his previous order that overturned Mississippi’s ban on same-sex marriage. He says…

The solution to tiny touchscreens is, apparently, your skin.

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University’s Future Interface group unveiled SkinTrack, the first skin-based wearable interface that overcomes tiny smartwatch screens by turning your forearm and the back of your hand into touch and gesture interfaces.

SkinTrack consists of a signal-emitting ring that you wear on your index finger and a sensing smartwatch band.

The band has four electrodes to…
