A very effective video. Boston Dynamics showed the Atlas robot, which does parkour and does back flips

Published

on

Boston Dynamics, which recently moved under the wing of Hyundai, published a video in which humanoid Atlas robots dashingly overcome the site with various obstacles – no worse than parkour masters. And at the end – a couple of spectacular back flips.

It took months of work and training for Atlas to successfully complete this obstacle course, according to company representatives. But now robots adapt their behavior and, accordingly, movements depending on the objects in the field of view. That is, they do not need to be programmed for a particular trick or jump.

True, this video is only an illusion of how coordinated the movements of robots can be: in fact, the likelihood of errors is still very high. The company will still improve the movement of robots, taking into account the peculiarities of their structure – which, for example, include the absence of a spine and weak joints of the hands.

YouTube has a new option for children to listen to music safely

Published

Google is expanding the possibilities of supervised accounts so that parents can implement them in new applications.

Just like YouTube, you can now set your children to use YouTube Music under your supervision.

Children can have supervised access to YouTube Music

Last year, Google launched a new option for parents to moderate the content their children watch on YouTube. A dynamic called “experience or supervised account”, available to children under 13 years of age who have a Google account managed with Family Link.

This allows children to access a version similar to the YouTube app, or its web version, but with content and functions that have been previously configured by parents. Yes, it’s like a traditional version of YouTube, but supervised.

And now this dynamic, Google wants to extend to YouTube Music. As mentioned in Android Central, YouTube sent an email saying that supervised accounts will receive more features and apps. And among them, the possibility of adding YouTube Music.

That is, children with supervised accounts will be able to use the YouTube Music app to listen to their favorite artists, songs, create playlists, etc. All this under the supervision of their parents, so they can decide in advance what content is appropriate for their child, what exceptions will be imposed, etc.

So it follows the same dynamic that is used on YouTube, so that children have their own YouTube Music account and build their library within the limits set by their parents. Of course, keep in mind that YouTube’s system isn’t perfect and may not cover all content that would be considered inappropriate for children, so daily parental supervision is still expected.

On the other hand, along with this update, the Google team also mentions that supervised accounts now include YouTube video logins and playback on TV.

YouTube will have an option to loop your favorite part of the video

Published

on

YouTube is preparing a new option that will allow you to loop some interesting part of the video, without having to repeat all the content.

A dynamic that will use the chapters of the videos so that you can repeat your favorite part without doing any extra action.

YouTube prepares more options to view videos

One of the options that we find when we play a video is the possibility of jumping to a specific chapter. A dynamic that is possible thanks to the fact that YouTube allows creators to divide the video into sections, to make it easier for users to go to the part of the content that interests them.

And it seems that YouTube wants to further enhance the advantages offered by videos divided into chapters. As mentioned in AP, YouTube is working on a new dynamic: looping video chapters.

At the moment, you can’t see this feature in any version of the YouTube app, but it’s clear from the APK code analyzed by the YouTube team. Xda Developers. Although YouTube has the option to repeat a video in a loop, this new dynamic would allow you to choose a chapter to play in a loop.

An interesting dynamic if we are taking notes, following a tutorial, preparing a recipe, etc. This would save us from constantly rewinding the player or watching the video again. It would only be a matter of choosing the chapter of the video that we want to play in a loop and that’s it.

For the moment, this option would work like this in theory, since we will have to wait for it to be implemented to see its real operation within the app. So we’ll have to wait to see if YouTube follows this work in progress to add this feature, or if it falls by the wayside like so many other options that don’t make it past the experimental stage.
