As you're probably aware, there are some pre-release builds of Android Q floating around out there.

Monday, February 18th, 2019

Levels is a new video series from Red Bull that dives into the world of indie gaming. The latest episode reveals that ustwo, the creators of Monument Valley, is currently working on two new games for mobile. Both titles are described as departures from the Monument Valley franchise.

Season one episode five of Red bull's Levels allows an art director and project lead from ustwo to talk about two new upcoming games from the renowned studio. It would appear that one of these new titles will be designed to bring mobile gaming to the "next level" by focusing on narrative and interpersonal relationships, and the second game is inspired by real life to better connect with players and create an experience that feels true.

Soma smart shades review: Retrofitting your blinds for Google Assistant requires many compromises

Sunday, February 17th, 2019

Automating the light in your home is easy if you only consider getting some smart bulbs or switches or plugs. But once it comes to natural light, the equation gets a bit more complicated. Smart shades/blinds/curtains aren't as ubiquitous, and the current solutions aren't ideal. You either have to replace your entire shades (Ikea, Lutron), the motor (Neo Smart Blinds), or if you're not feeling particularly adventurous, you can try to retrofit your existing window coverings.

Tasker beta can now use WaveNet tech for natural-sounding speech, including an old lady voice

Saturday, February 16th, 2019

Tasker, the Android automation behemoth, is a tool limited only by your imagination — it has been used for everything from improving personal workflows to interfacing with enterprise systems. In the newest beta release, 5.7.0-beta, developer Joaomgcd demoed an interesting new feature, "Say Wavenet", which brings natural sounding Text-to-Speech to Tasker using Google's WaveNet algorithm (the same technology that powers Assistant responses).

The video above demos WaveNet voices in Tasker beta, and they sound a lot less robotic than the app's previous Text-to-Speech output — you can even make your phone speak in an old-lady's voice!

ARCore update allows developers to create Snapchat-like face filters with ease

Friday, February 15th, 2019

While there aren't many practical uses (yet) for Google's ARCore library, it's still an incredible technical achievement — especially considering most of the depth-sensing is done entirely with software. ARCore 1.7 is now rolling out on the Play Store, with a new Augmented Faces API and other improvements.

The most important addition is the Augmented Faces API, which is now available on the front-facing camera. It creates a "high quality, 468-point 3D mesh" of a user's face, which can then be used by developers to create effects.
