That’s not the same thing as a company doing a mass broadcast that includes libel.

The U1 is just using the IEEE UWB standard from what I understand of their FCC filings. Any chip can license the tech. Only question is what Apple added to make it work with their stuff.

But why would you do that since Apple partners with Chiplolo for any type of tag you could want? The only difference is that it says Chipolo.

I like this guys priorities. 2 fast cars and a home with aluminum siding.

We have proof it doesn’t hurt your eyes. The way smart glasses and other headborn displays and even aircraft HUD is to work is to make the light rays come into your eyes exactly like they would at a distance. For instance for the helmets fighter pilots wear the focal distance is ~8 m. So the image “floats” 8 meters Read more

I can’t be the only one that reads this and thinks she should just use a car share service. Getaround and Zipcar were every other block in that town last time I was there.

Well these cameras don’t have to be mounted on out board wings like this and once they aren’t you don’t have to worry about broken mirrors which I’ve seen plenty of.

That’s a difference between gas and electric. In gas cars they know the car will only last so long due to the engine and transmission failing. In electric cars that failure rate is so low that there is no reason that the average age of cars on the road wouldn’t increase by a few more years and repair of minor issues Read more

As an aircraft engineer I’d have to disagree.
Your system is still a redundancy system but now has codependent redundancy systems working together which are very unlikely to function better than an entirely internal redundancy system. Simple markers on the road with a second set of cameras would work as well or better Read more

This seems like it would be true but it isn’t.
Modern power windows are cheaper to manufacture than manual windows and are more durable for several reasons but mainly due to knowing the forces being put on them, E.G. you never over crank a power window. power auto-locks and windows are a mandated safety feature in Read more

They didn’t. But the people who would buy this don’t know, their idea of a great sub is things vibrating. Sonos is selling a <300 W RMS sub with less cone area than an 8" sub for $700. UI and KISS is everything to most buyers.

People are paying $700 only for ease of setup. The Sonos subs are pretty good, but they are less than 300W RMS with low surface area (<40 in^2). They aren’t bad but sound wise they are equivalent in accuracy and power to subs costing half as much. The sound quality and features available on an equivalently priced sub Read more

And an autoEQ system that works with all speakers vs just certain ones like the Sonos.

It also means secret service and onsite security had full control of the vehicles and could provide a barrier of safe vehicles.

As someone who grew up with an astro it is way harder to get out of the astro than any other minivan made today or then for that matter. Also the ride is trash.

We allow local zoning and planning for things other countries (like Japan) use federal regs for. So it allows people in a neighborhood to complain to their local politician that someone is putting a utility across there property (even if it is remote buried and fed and there is no impact to the surface) and requires Read more
