Impressionist Does 20 Different Celebrity Voices As Face Deepfakes From One Person To The Next

This is a worthwhile video of impressionist Jim Meskimen reading 'Pity The Poor Impressionist' (a poem he wrote about what it's like being an impressionist) in twenty different celebrity voices as his face transform from one celebrity's to the next thanks to the terrifying power of deepfake technology. If I didn't know any better I'd swear he really did transform into all those people. "Do you know better, GW?" THIS MAN IS A CHAMELEON. Keep going for the video.

Full Metal Gymnast

by Jason Kottke

Boston Dynamics programmed their Atlas robot to do a gymnastics routine.

I lost it when it did that little jump split at about 13 seconds in. That looked seriously human in a deeply unsettling way.

Tony Hawk on the 21 Levels of Complexity of Skateboard Tricks

by Jason Kottke

Legendary skater Tony Hawk breaks down 21 increasingly complex skateboarding tricks, from a standard ollie to a kickflip to a McTwist to a 1080 to a couple of tricks that have never been done. As someone who has always been in awe of what skaters can do but hasn’t logged much on-board time myself, I learned a lot from this.

The Mother of Forensic Science and Her “Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death”

by Jason Kottke

(Note: This post contains images of simulated crime scenes.) Frances Glessner Lee is known as “the mother of forensic science” for her role in revolutionizing how crimes were investigated. Starting in the 40s and using her skills in making miniature models that she learned as a young girl, Lee built detailed and intricate crime scene dioramas to help train homicide investigators to properly investigate and canvas a crime scene. From a Smithsonian exhibition of Lee’s work:

At the time, there was very little training for investigators, meaning that they often overlooked or mishandled key evidence, or irrevocably tampered with crime scenes. Few had any medical training that would allow them to determine cause of death. As Lee and her colleagues at Harvard worked to change this, tools were needed to help trainees scientifically approach their search for truth. Lee was a talented artist as well as criminologist, and used the craft of miniature-making that she had learned as a young girl to solve this problem. She constructed the Nutshells beginning in the 1940s to teach investigators to properly canvass a crime scene to effectively uncover and understand evidence. The equivalent to “virtual reality” in their time, her masterfully crafted dioramas feature handmade objects to render scenes with exacting accuracy and meticulous detail.

Every element of the dioramas — from the angle of minuscule bullet holes, the placement of latches on widows, the patterns of blood splatters, and the discoloration of painstakingly painted miniature corpses — challenges trainees’ powers of observation and deduction. The Nutshells are so effective that they are still used in training seminars today at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore.

Here are some images of Lee’s surviving dioramas (found here):

In a video about the Smithsonian exhibition, curator Nora Atkinson explains that it shows how Lee “co-opted traditionally feminine crafts to advance the male-dominated field of police investigation”:

How Much Better Does an Expensive Piano Sound Than a Cheap One?

by Jason Kottke

YouTuber Lord Vinheteiro recently played the same pair of tunes on six different pianos, ranging from a $499 used upright to a $112,000 Steinway to a $2.5 million Steinway grand piano that’s tacky af. Which one sounds the best?

I’m not sure that you get the full effect and nuance of the super luxe pianos after the audio has passed through YouTube’s audio compression and whatever phone or computer speaker or headphones you’ve got going, but the more expensive pianos sound better than the lower-end ones for sure. I would have appreciated a medley at the end that repeatedly cycled through all six of the recordings to better hear the differences.

Classic Doom games vanish, reappear on Xbox One with features missing [Updated]

by Sam Machkovech
You can still purchase and play the first three Doom games on Xbox One consoles. But this comes after certain Xbox One-compatible ports of the series were apparently delisted on Friday.

Enlarge / You can still purchase and play the first three Doom games on Xbox One consoles. But this comes after certain Xbox One-compatible ports of the series were apparently delisted on Friday. (credit: Aurich Lawson / id Software)

[Update: Bethesda now says it has resolved an issue preventing previous purchasers from re-downloading the Xbox 360 versions of Doom and Doom II on the Xbox One. New customers on the console will still have to buy the new Xbox One native version, however.]

As part of its annual QuakeCon festivities, id Software surprise-announced a launch of all three "original" Doom games on modern consoles on Friday, effective immediately. That was solid news for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch owners, who've yet to get ports of Doom, Doom II, or Doom 3: BFG Edition.

But the news was different on Xbox One, where all three games had already received digital-download ports thanks to that platform's hearty Xbox 360 backwards-compatibility program. And on Friday, Bethesda gave those version's holders a rude awakening: the company completely delisted those Xbox 360 versions.

What’s It Like Living with Perfect Pitch and Synesthesia?

by Jason Kottke

LJ Rich has synesthesia and perfect pitch and wrote about what that feels like for her personally.

Now, I’d like you to imagine you’re chatting with your conversation partner. But instead of speaking and hearing the words alone, each syllable they utter has a note, sometimes more than one. They speak in tunes and I can sing back their melody. Once I know them a little bit, I can play along to their words as they speak them, accompanying them on the piano as if they’re singing an operatic recitative. They drop a glass on the floor, it plays a particular melody as it hits the tiles. I’ll play that melody back — on a piano, on anything. I can accompany that melody with harmony, chords — or perhaps compose a variation on that melody - develop it into a stupendous symphony filled with strings, or play it back in the style of Chopin, Debussy or Bob Marley. That car horn beeps an F major chord, this kettle’s in A flat, some bedside lights get thrown out because they are out of tune with other appliances. I can play along to every song on the radio whether or not I’ve heard it before, the chord progressions as open to me as if I had the sheet music in front of me. I can play other songs with the same chords and fit them with the song being played. Those bath taps squeak in E, this person sneezes in E flat. That printer’s in D mostly. The microwave is in the same key as the washing machine.

I have a friend with perfect pitch and one of the first times we hung out together, the horn on a tugboat sounded and she said, “C sharp”. I looked puzzled so she explained, and then I peppered her with questions about all the other sounds around us. It was like watching a superhero do their thing.

But with great power sometimes comes great irritation. From a NY Times article about Rich:

LJ said she had been a “weird prodigy kid.” For her, perfect pitch had been a nightmare. The whole world seemed out of tune. But then teachers introduced her to Indian ragas, Gamelan music and compositions with quarter tones, unfamiliar modes and atonal structures. As her musical horizons expanded, her anxiety dissipated. (She remains exceedingly sensitive to pitch, though. Her refrigerator, for example, hums in A flat. Working from home, I hear my fridge running 12 hours a day. Blindfolded, I’m not sure I could pick the thing out of a lineup of three other refrigerators.)

My Dad, the Facebook Addict

by Jason Kottke
Merijn

Well this is depressing.

Meet Vincent LeVine. He’s the subject of “My Dad, the Facebook Addict”, a short documentary by his son Dylan. He started off using Facebook normally, keeping up with the news and chatting with friends, but evolved into a fierce meme warrior stocked with a “nuclear arsenal” of memes at the ready to destroy anyone who wants to come at him.

I can have a meme war with anybody and destroy them. And I’ve done it! People actually bail at the end and go, “Who is this guy? He’s got like every meme ever produced on the internet! He can knock us out with his memes!” And I do, I have tons of memes, I just keep memeing them to death until they just surrender because they just can’t do it anymore. They don’t have the memes that I have.

Vincent is very entertaining and it was difficult to not just quote all of his lines in the video. You can check out his Facebook account for yourself or watch his technique for hygienically blowing out birthday cake candles.

‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ Turns 50 Years Old

by Jason Kottke

Hungry Caterpillar

50 years ago last week, Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar was published for the first time. In a piece for The Atlantic, Ashley Fetters talked to a pair of kid lit experts about why the book remains so popular today.

Part of why both kids and parents love The Very Hungry Caterpillar is because it’s an educational book that doesn’t feel like a capital-E Educational book. Traditionally, children’s literature is a didactic genre: “It teaches something,” Martin says, “but the best children’s books teach without kids knowing that they’re learning something.” In The Very Hungry Caterpillar, she adds, “you learn the days of the week. You learn colors. You learn the fruits. You learn junk-food names. In the end, you learn a little bit about nutrition, too: If you eat a whole bunch of junk food, you’re not going to feel that great.” Yet, crucially, none of the valuable information being presented ever feels “in your face,” Martin says.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar was certainly one of my favorite books as a kid — along with Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, Richard Scarry’s Busy, Busy Town & Cars and Trucks and Things That Go, and the Frog & Toad books — and it was one of the first books we read to our kids. I remember very clearly loving the partial pages and the holes. Holes! In a book! Right in the middle of the page! It felt transgressive. Like, what else is possible in this world if you can do such a thing? (Also, “caterpillar” is such a satisfying word to say, both correctly and, er, less so… I still default to my childhood “callarpitter” sometimes).

Roald Dahl: Not Vaccinating Your Kids Is “Almost a Crime”

by Jason Kottke

Roald Dahl’s oldest daughter Olivia died from the measles when she was seven years old. She died because there wasn’t a reliable measles vaccine then, and in this heartfelt letter he wrote years later, Dahl wants everyone to know that there is such a vaccine now.

Olivia, my eldest daughter, caught measles when she was seven years old. As the illness took its usual course I can remember reading to her often in bed and not feeling particularly alarmed about it. Then one morning, when she was well on the road to recovery, I was sitting on her bed showing her how to fashion little animals out of coloured pipe-cleaners, and when it came to her turn to make one herself, I noticed that her fingers and her mind were not working together and she couldn’t do anything.

‘Are you feeling all right?’ I asked her.

‘I feel all sleepy,’ she said.

In an hour, she was unconscious. In twelve hours she was dead.

The measles had turned into a terrible thing called measles encephalitis and there was nothing the doctors could do to save her. That was twenty-four years ago in 1962, but even now, if a child with measles happens to develop the same deadly reaction from measles as Olivia did, there would still be nothing the doctors could do to help her.

On the other hand, there is today something that parents can do to make sure that this sort of tragedy does not happen to a child of theirs. They can insist that their child is immunised against measles. I was unable to do that for Olivia in 1962 because in those days a reliable measles vaccine had not been discovered. Today a good and safe vaccine is available to every family and all you have to do is to ask your doctor to administer it.

I feel so tired when I think about parents not vaccinating their children against easily preventable fatal diseases. It’s child abuse and the kids know better! Here’s a tweet from Erin Faulk sharing some screenshots of teens asking how they can get vaccinated over their parents’ objections.

Tom Cruise finally takes a stand… on your parents’ terrible TV settings

by Jennifer Ouellette

Anyone who owns a high-definition TV has likely experienced the nagging sensation of something being not quite right when watching films. It's not all in your head. The effect is called video interpolation, or motion smoothing, and last night, Tom Cruise and writer/director Chris McQuarrie dropped a surprise PSA on Twitter (apparently filmed on the set of Mission Impossible: Fallout) to warn us about this evil.

Okay, so motion smoothing isn't actually evil. It's more of a double-edged sword. The feature is great for watching sports, but it makes movies look like "they were shot on high-speed video rather than film," says Cruise. In other words, your Hollywood blockbuster movie will look like a 1970s BBC TV series. That's why it's commonly called "the soap opera effect."

Why does this happen? Essentially, the feature uses image processing algorithms to insert (interpolate) "extra" frames between the actual frames. The TV will process one frame, then another, and then the algorithms will try to guess what a new frame inserted between those two frames should look like. This increases the frame rate to 120fps, to match the HDTV's 120Hz refresh rate. It will smooth out the image and make fast-paced events easier to follow, like basketball games or NASCAR races—or even the nightly news, which isn't meant to look cinematic. But it won't have that "film" feeling anymore: it feels "unnatural," or rather, a bit too real, ruining the illusion.

A Miniature, Functional LEGO Concert Grand Piano

This is a video demonstration of the ~2,800 piece LEGO concert grand piano built by LEGO lover and music teacher SleepyCow that's looking to garner some more support on the LEGO Ideas website. The build includes "a removable keyboard with 25 independent working keys, each key connects to its own hammer, working damper and pedal functions, realistic piano lid which can be open either half stick or full stick, realistic fall board with a soft close and locking pins, removable music stand, and height adjustable piano bench." The piano IS functional (pushing the keys does cause the hammers to strike -- also operable player piano style with a LEGO Power Functions motor), although it doesn't actually make any noise since it's strings are made of that nylon LEGO twine and not actual piano string. Still, it's a very impressive set and I would be tempted to build it if it does make it to production. Of course whether I'll be able to assemble it correctly remains to be seen. "There isn't a snowball's chance in the devil's butthole." FACT. Keep going for the video.

Welke internetsnelheid is écht nodig?

by Rashid Eissing

Bij de Klantenservice en Technische Helpdesk krijgen wij nog wel eens de vraag hoeveel internetsnelheid nodig is. Zo is het niet altijd duidelijk hoeveel Netflix, Spotify of televisie in HD verbruikt. We grijpen dit moment aan om de zaken in perspectief te zetten.

U kent het misschien wel, een buurman die loopt te pochen over internetsnelheden van honderden Mbit per seconde. Het is makkelijk te geloven dat 200, 400 of zelfs 1000 Mbit/s download altijd nodig is om prettig te kunnen browsen en video’s te streamen. Of dat een hoge abonnementssnelheid automatisch voor betere WiFi en stabiel internet zorgt. Niks minder is waar.

Televisie en vast bellen (VoIP)
Bij ons gaat televisie en vast bellen via de internetverbinding. De internetsnelheid die nodig is om een digitaal kanaal in SD-kwaliteit te bekijken is slechts 4 Mbit/s. Kijkt u in HD-kwaliteit? Dan gaat het om zo’n 8 tot 12 Mbit/s afhankelijk of u op DSL of glasvezel zit. Dit geldt per tv-ontvanger die aan staat.

Video en muziek streamen
Een van de populairste dingen die we op dit moment online doen is video en muziek streamen. Bekende voorbeelden hiervan zijn natuurlijk YouTube en Netflix als het om beeld gaat. Apple Music en Spotify Premium zijn veel gebruikte muziekdiensten. Hoeveel bandbreedte heeft u nodig om de laatste series te bekijken of die ene hit te beluisteren? Hier volgt een overzicht:

Internetsnelheden voor streamen

Deze getallen zijn mogelijk dankzij compressietechnieken die zo zuinig mogelijk omgaan met de beschikbare internetsnelheid. U moet dus met heel wat mensen tegelijk video en muziek streamen wilt u aan 200 Mbit/s komen.

Gamen
Online gamen is ook typisch iets waarvan gedacht wordt dat het een hoge internetsnelheid nodig heeft. Laten we kijken wat de verschillende consoles in realiteit verbruiken:

Internetsnelheden voor gamen

Sony heeft geen harde cijfers bekend gemaakt. De verwachting is dat de minimale snelheden voor de Playstation 4 vergelijkbaar zijn met de XBOX One en Nintendo Switch.

Wanneer wel?
Dit alles wil natuurlijk niet zeggen dat hogere internetsnelheden nooit nodig zijn. Voor grote gezinnen of bedrijven die met veel mensen tegelijk online zijn is het natuurlijk fijn om wat ruimer in de jas te zitten. Maar ook als u regelmatig grote bestanden moet versturen of in de cloud zet is meer internetsnelheid prettig. Denk aan fotografie of videobewerking bijvoorbeeld.

Neemt u eens een kijkje op onze webpagina ‘Internetsnelheid uitgelegd’ voor meer informatie.

Test-Aankoop: actieradius elektrische auto ligt veel lager dan geadverteerd

Wilders knipt ster uit vlag Europa

PVV-leider Wilders heeft in een toespraak in Brussel nogmaals de redenen opgesomd waarom Nederland uit de Europese Unie moet stappen.

Om zijn standpunt te onderstrepen knipte Wilders vervolgens een ster uit een meegebrachte Europese vlag. De ster staat volgens Wilders symbool voor Nederland. Hij wil de ster mee terugnemen naar Nederland en "teruggeven aan de Nederlandse bevolking".

De PVV hield de manifestatie in Brussel met het oog op de Europese verkiezingen van donderdag.

Study: Video Gamer Aggression Result of Game Experience, Not Violent Content

by Soulskill
An anonymous reader writes "A new study published in the March edition of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology indicates that a gamer's experience of a video game and not the content of the game itself can give rise to violent behavior. In other words, 'researchers found it was not the narrative or imagery, but the lack of mastery of the game's controls and the degree of difficulty players had completing the game that led to frustration.' Based on their findings, researchers note that even games like Tetris and Candy Crush can inspire violent behavior more so than games like World of Warcraft or Grand Theft Auto if they are poorly designed and difficult to play."

A new, more visual way to view your Promotions tab

by The Gmail Team
Merijn

This is insanely stupid.

Posted by Aaron Rothman, Product Manager

Promotional mail has a lot of images, from pictures of snazzy new shoes to photos of that rock-climbing gym you’ve been wanting to try. But right now, those images are buried inside your messages—and with only subject lines to go on, it can be a challenge to quickly pick out the deals and offers that interest you most. To help you find what you’re looking for faster, you can now sign up for a new field trial for Gmail that lets you view the Promotions tab in a more visual way.

To take part in this field trial, you can sign up at g.co/gmailfieldtrial and if you’re selected, a new grid view will bring to the top of your inbox key images from deals, offers, and other marketing emails if you have the Promotions tab enabled. Grid view also comes with infinite scrolling, making it easy to quickly scan through your messages and find the ones that look interesting.
You’ll be able to toggle between the new visual grid view and the standard list view by clicking a button at the top of the tab. We’re just experimenting for now, but we hope this view will make it a little bit easier for you to get things done. Sign up at g.co/gmailfieldtrial and if you're selected, we’ll follow up for your feedback!

Note: If you send promotional emails, check out the Gmail Developers site to learn how you can give your readers a better experience in Gmail using this feature.

Drie vragen over Big Data, privacy en de ING

by Janneke Slöetjes

Vandaag werd bekend dat ING ambitieuze plannen heeft met jouw betaalgegevens. Volgens een directeur van de bank zit er een team van big data scientists klaar om jouw betaalgegevens te ontleden. Mag dat zomaar? Wij zetten de belangrijkste vragen op een rij. 

1. Mag ING dit doen?

Ja; de ING moet zich bij het gebruiken van jouw betaalgegevens aan de Wet bescherming persoonsgegevens houden. Die wet bepaalt dat de bank je gegevens alleen voor duidelijke doelen mag gebruiken en niet zomaar aan anderen mag verkopen. Ook moet de bank voor ieder doel een geldige basis hebben. Uit informatie van de bank blijkt dat ING je betaalgegevens alleen analyseert en je aanbiedingen doet als je daar toestemming voor geeft. Dat maakt het in principe legaal, tenminste als die toestemming duidelijk is en je genoeg informatie krijgt over wat er precies over je wordt geanalyseerd en hoe zich dat vertaalt in een aanbieding.

2. Maken we ons dan druk om niks?

Nee, dat ook weer niet. De precieze regels over gebruik van Big Data (het gebruik van grote bakken data om mensen te benaderen of voorspellingen te doen) zijn nog onduidelijk. In de eerste plaats omdat het koppelen en analyseren van gegevens ook ongunstige gevolgen voor burgers kan hebben. Kan een adverteerder bijvoorbeeld negatief selecteren bij ING (“stuur deze advertentie alleen naar mensen met een bovenmodaal inkomen/die nooit bij McDonalds pinnen/weinig bij de apotheek komen”)? Kunnen mensen voldoende overzien hoe hun gegevens worden gebruikt en wat voor ‘aanbieding’ dat oplevert? Zijn alle bedrijven zo braaf dat ze pas je gegevens analyseren als je toestemming geeft? Of draai je gewoon mee in de Big Data-molen en wordt je alleen benaderd na een ‘ja’ ? Weet je überhaupt nog wie er wat over je weet en wat die gegevens over je zeggen? Snappen bedrijven hun eigen algoritmes wel? Hoe weet je hoe een beslissing over je tot stand komt? En wat kun je er tegen doen? Is het ok dat je straks overal alleen aanbiedingen krijgt als je data over jezelf weggeeft?

3.  Dus wat nu?

Het wordt tijd dat politici zich serieus met dit onderwerp gaan bezighouden. Vooralsnog ziet Den Haag vooral de voordelen en kansen rondom Big Data. Voordelen voor het bedrijfsleven dus. Over privacy, discriminatie, voorzienbaarheid en informatie richting burgers wordt veel minder nagedacht. Daarom organiseert Bits of Freedom op 9 april aanstaande een (besloten, dat wel) workshop voor Kamerleden over big data, profilering en privacy. Uiteraard zullen we je op de hoogte houden van de inhoud.

Man met drugs in Bieber-villa

De Amerikaanse politie heeft huiszoeking gedaan in een villa van tieneridool Justin Bieber. Agenten waren op zoek naar beelden van bewakingscamera's.

Bieber wordt ervan verdacht dat hij het huis van zijn buren met eieren heeft bekogeld. De schade liep in de duizenden euro's, onder meer omdat in de gevel zeldzame houtsoorten waren verwerkt.

Volgens de politie verzette Bieber zich niet tegen de huiszoeking en stelde hij zich coöperatief op. De sheriff benadrukt dat de 19-jarige zanger niet formeel is ondervraagd en ook niet is aangehouden.

Cocaïne

Agenten arresteerden in de villa in Calabasas bij Los Angeles wel een bekende van Bieber, omdat die cocaïne bij zich had.

Bieber heeft wel vaker bezoek van de politie gehad. Onlangs klaagden zijn buren al over roekeloos rijgedrag. Ook had de zanger het herhaaldelijk aan de stok met paparazzi en haalde hij zich de woede op de hals van een Australische gemeente, waar hij een muur van een hotel had 'opgeleukt' met graffiti.

Play the one-second stopwatch game...it took me 62 tries to hit 1:00 exactly. We used to play this in school with an actual digital watch. We also had a version where we'd see how fast we could start and stop the timer. Good wholesome times...we weren't rotting our brains with Candy Crush or Angry Birds Star Wars or social studies.
