Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
I've always wanted something like this projector + camera shining down on a pool table.
It could record all of the shots, and easily show you a prior table position so you could "un-do" a shot as well as re-play slow motion video of a "break" or other action. Based on varying games, it could count and keep score (cutthroat, multiple iterations of "4 ball run", etc etc) by just displaying the scores somewhere on the table.
For interactivity, it could "visualize" the line of an intended ball strike by viewing your cue stick and anticipating the output (it wouldn't be perfect with only a top-view camera, but good enough). Once you find your desired "line" a voice or other gesture control could "freeze" the drawn lines, allowing you to more easily aim.
Fun stuff, and I didn't even watch the video (:
Do you have an API to fetch the hosts file directly without using the windows software? I don't run any windows...
I'm thinking about taking your hosts file and running it through a script to create a dnsmasq or bind config so then I can run it as a local resolver for my home network (consisting of non-changeable devices like a Wii).
If you copy/paste some code from another class, all the dependencies are added automatically to the new class.
Even adding a new library to a Maven project is trivial in IntelliJ. You just start typing the name in the pom and a list of libraries and versions pop up, defaulting to the most recent stable release.
Getter/Setter/Constructor/toString/equals/hashcode -- they're all auto-generated for you as needed.
It is annoying that all this "fluff" exists in the language, but a good IDE hides it; getters/setters are collapsed to a single line; import statements hidden by default, endless customization in how your code looks so you can ignore the fluff and focus on the important stuff.
Try FoolDNS or others on this page:
If only APK would spend his time developing a DNS service we could all use for free instead of client software. (Push the hosts file to the DNS resolver that ALL devices use.)
If the "smart TV" uses it's own DNS, simply block all outbound port 53 traffic other than your router itself.
Poll didn't say anything about live TV, just current shows.
