LXer: Android-based motorcycle helmet gains funding

Wednesday 13th of August 2014 04:05:01 AM
Skully has achieved Indiegogo funding for an Android 4.4 based motorcycle helmet with a head-up display, GPS navigation, and a 180-degree rearview camera. Last October, Skully Systems (then called Skully Helmets) unveiled its high-tech Skully P1 motorcycle helmet and launched a beta testing program. The P1 never reached market, but has been refined into an AR-1 model that was launched on Indiegogo on Aug. 10. The Skully AR-1 quickly blasted past its $250,000 Indiegogo flexible funding goals, and had surpassed $900,000 at publication time. Helmets are available starting at $1,399, with shipments due in May 2015.

The connected car concept is picking up speed as a vehicle intelligence system in its own right. It is turning the common car into a fully functional communications center on wheels.

LXer: Jump right into open developing with Leap Motion

Tuesday 12th of August 2014 11:19:06 PM

And because the future of any new platform depends on what people can do with it, over the past few months Leap Motion has released a steady stream of open source assets and examples to help devs get started with our v2 tracking beta.

Reddit: 11 Shortcuts For Learning Linux In Record Time

Reddit: Im not sure if this belongs here

Tuesday 12th of August 2014 10:06:47 PM

If this is an incorrect sub for this question, I apologize, I will be glad to move it.

I have recently came to the conclusion that I use Linux more than my primary OS (its in a VM currently). My computer has 16 gb of memory, and I am spending more time in a VM with 4 gb of memory, this is troubling to me.

I want to reverse this scenario.

Here are my issues. I enjoy occasional gaming. That was the primary reason I built my computer, and why I run Windows (yuck). I am also a student of information security, so Kali is the VM I spend the majority of my time in.

So my questions are:

If I switch to my primary OS as linux, how well does it handle VMs such as Kali (Its not a good OS to run as a primary OS, as its more geared for security research).

If linux handles VMs good, is there a way that I can run Windows as a VM for gaming (would it run video as my graphics card?)? Or would I be better suited to dual boot?

Here is my hdd set up, if that matters:

250 GB SSD with Windows installed 60 GB SSD with Kali VM 1 TB HDD for data in Windows

What would be the best course of action for me? Also, which distro is best to use with Nvidia graphics card (GTX 780), MSI motherboard, and Intel i5k Sandy Bridge processor?

Tuesday 12th of August 2014 09:25:17 PM

I seem to remember a utility that allowed different computers to share a keyboard and mouse just by sliding the mouse off of one screen and onto the other. I can't seem to find it. Anybody use it or know what it's called? TIA
