Apple has been hosting annual iPhone press conferences in September since 2012, but this year is understandably different. While Apple is holding a big launch event today, we probably won’t learn much about the upcoming iPhone 12 series, which has been delayed “a few weeks.”
Instead, we’re expecting to get some pretty big Apple Watch updates. We’re hoping to get a look at the Apple Watch Series 6 and a glimpse of a new low-cost Apple Watch. Rumors are also circulating about a refreshed version of iPad Air.
How to grow pumpkins in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Animal Crossing: New Horizons players can now plant and harvest pumpkins, thanks to a free October update.
You’ll be able to buy Pumpkin Starts from Nook’s Cranny for 280 Bells each during October. Leif sells them for cheaper at 140 Bells each year-round.
Plant these in an open area on your island to grow pumpkins, which are used in seasonal Halloween-themed DIY recipes. Note that you will not need to water the pumpkins to keep them growing, but if you do water them, they’ll produce more. It takes three days to grow a pumpkin from a Pumpkin Start.
Once a visible Pumpkin grows to a large size, you can pick it to collect a Pumpkin. The Start will continue to produce Pumpkins after you pick the initial one. It’s also possible for multiple Pumpkins to grow from a single Start over time, if you water the plant.
The Pumpkins come in green, white, yellow, and orange, though you won’t know what color your Pumpkin Starts will grow into until they sprout. You’ll need Orange Pumpkins to craft the Spooky set DIY items, and the other colors to customize them.
Yale’s smart robotic fabric is as flexible as you need it to be
“Our Field’s metal-epoxy composite can become as flexible as latex rubber or as stiff as hard acrylic, over 1,000 times more rigid, just by heating it up or cooling it down,” lead author Trevor Buckner said. “Long fibers of this material can be sewn onto a fabric to give it a supportive skeleton that we can turn on and off.”
In addition, the team developed a liquid-based sensor to detect changes, either with the wearer or in the surrounding environment, that can be literally painted onto the fabric. They also embedded specially-formed shape-memory alloy wires — which bend themselves into preprogrammed shapes when exposed to current — throughout the material, enabling it to take and hold its proper form. Imagine a pair of smart pants that can help the elderly stand or sit with ease from even the deepest of couch cushions.
Well, the material probably won’t be used for smart pants because the research was funded by the Air Force Office of Science Research which hopes to use the stuff in everything from wearable tourniquets and smart cargo netting to self-deploying tents.
Google’s Recorder app is getting an audio editing feature
At today’s Google event, the company announced that its Recorder app, which is available for Pixel 2 or newer phones, is getting a nice update that should make it a lot easier to search through audio files. The update will allow you to select a snippet of audio from a recorded clip, which you can then either share or remove from the larger audio file.
Additionally, you can search for specific words in a recorded transcript and delete them. So if you’re someone like me who tends to say “uh,” “um,” or any other crutch word during interviews, you can theoretically find and remove them with this new update.
According to Google, you’ll be able to use this feature offline, in the same way its live English transcription function works without needing internet access. The company announced the feature in a blog discussing the Pixel 5, but it will likely arrive on some of Google’s other Pixel phones as well.
The Sports Grind Entertainment has reached out to Google to confirm whether the new feature is indeed coming to more than just the Pixel 5.
