Maybe you are familiar with those ticket booking systems where, at some point during the purchase flow, you have to choose a seat. This is usually done when selling tickets for games, movies, flights or concerts. Wouldn’t it be cool to have some kind of “realistic” preview of the seat, i.e. see the stage or screen from the perspective of the space you chose? Of course it would This is the kind of question that resulted into a new experiment which we’d like to share with you today.
NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 allows the automotive industry to use artificial intelligence to tackle the complexities inherent in autonomous driving. It utilizes deep learning on NVIDIA’s most advanced GPUs for 360-degree situational awareness around the car, to determine precisely where the car is and to compute a safe, comfortable trajectory.
This tool helps you to generate beautiful blurry background images that you can use in any project. It doesn’t use CSS3 gradients, but a rather unique approach. It takes a stock image, extracts a very small area (sample area) and scales it up to 100%. The browser’s image smoothing algorithm takes care of the rest.
The result is a base64 encoded image which you can then use as a background. Strange though that the tool is named “unique gradient generator” as it generates blurred backgrounds.
La Latina Map and Pocket Guide is a full colour illustrated project realized in collaboration with Walk with me, a smart company. The idea was to represent the essence of a sunny Sunday in La Latina borough in Madrid, outlining all the hidden and interesting corners.
// create \Memcached object pointing to your Memcached server
$client = new \Memcached();
// create Scrapbook cache object
$cache = new \MatthiasMullie\Scrapbook\Adapters\Memcached($client);
// set a value
$cache->set('key', 'value'); // returns true
// get a value
$cache->get('key'); // returns 'value'
Scrapbook is a caching environment for PHP. The cornerstone is key-value-store, which sets a standard interface for cache adapters to implement. All adapters hide their inner workings behind a shared implementation. Using it means you’re not just building for Memcached. Your code will work just fine on any of the other adapters, without modifications!
Ships with adapters for Memcached, Redis, APC, MySQL, SQLite, etc. Also plays nice with PSR-6 if needed
Bram.us is the technical/geeky weblog of Bram Van Damme (nicknamed Bramus!), a 31 year old geezer raised in Deinze and living in Vinkt (Belgium) with his son Finn and daughter Tila.
Professionally — after having worked as a web developer for several years at several web agencies — Bramus became a Lecturer Web Technologies within the study programme Professional Bachelor ICT.
Having worked in education for seven years he – in 2015 – moved on to become part of the team at Small Town Heroes (Ghent, Belgium) to build groundbreaking solutions that make watching TV more interactive than ever. Bramus also freelances using the 3RDS moniker.
