Like having a knock off surface book without the fancy price and specs.
Still a piece of shit with horribly driver support the fucking trackpad doesn't always work after enabling the pen.
Also I think I hate it cause I feel for the hybrid meme and realized I hate using a tablet even if it has a dock Id rather a laptop. Also screen is kinda small to draw on good for sketches but I have shit eyes and rather something bigger than 11 in.

Does AR have more practical applications than VR?
>>
>>60631557
when you consider functionality, it's actually worse because of the added environmental calculations

with vr you can create everything what ar can but more efficient towards the human body because only your mind is being used.

the Matrix doesn't run in AR as well because of this

i'm talking bout endgame now though
>>
>>60631557
AR has practical applications, but not nearly as many as VR

AR has better industrial potential, especially when combined with IoT

VR is good mostly for entertainment. not so much for anything else

Anybody have one of these? How do you like it? Do you make your own programs to use with it?

>>60631480
I was thinking of developing my own programs in VR. You can use Unity or U real and just use the Vive plug-in... some magic stuff for handling the controller inputs... and you are in VR with your custom creation. I was thinking about telepresence robotics as an application. I wonder if anyone on /g/ has compiled a custom application for VR? I'm just starting to read up on it and I want to learn a bit more before I drop $700 for the HTC Vive and another $1500 for a gaming rig that can keep up with the processing demands. Basically the cost is why >>60631480 said nobody is buying it. 60% of American couldn't produce $400 for an emergency.
>>
>>60631480
My question is, would it be too much work to make a regular game VR compatible? I'm not talking about making them a full VR game, just playable on a Rift or Vive. If the game is first person and 3D capable you're already part way there, tie camera movement to headset tracking and a separate cursor tied to controller tracking. The controllers have enough buttons to emulate a 360 controller and movement could still be done with one of the joysticks.
>>
>>60631480
Well that was quick
>>
>>60631938
Thats really easy to do. Map the 360 motion of the headset to mouse or whatever look is set too. But it only works with fps. Try playing a tp games and you get motion sickness
>>
>>60632160
>Try playing a tp games and you get motion sickness
Third person? It could done be similarly to Lucky's Tale, that works really well for me with no motion sickness after a few minutes of adapting and I enjoyed being able to look around the play area independently from the character. It's a weird feeling though, less immersive and more like you're a god looking over tiny people so perhaps not suited to some games (but the option would still be nice).

Where I live once you go anywhere the kids would probably rob you if they could and the adults are either pissed off lower class assholes who are looking for a fight or their next drink or they're snobby stuck up elitists who would be horrified at the thought of someone trying to talk to them.

In a city, outside is basically the equivalent of Facebook unless you have a hangout, and you can only stop into those hangouts every two days or so.

Believe me the solution to "being more social" is not actually being more social. It doesn't work like that.

You either find people worthwhile in school or college and sometimes work or you're shit out of luck.

At least that's how it works in most EU cities. If meeting randos works for you though, congrats you are the 1%.

If you really want to meet people, take a course in something. Chances are though you're stepping into last chance saloon with a room full of people who've already had their souls crushed by the world

I'm not autistic but I left my real world behind the computer screen.
My computer is something I can understand and know how to use.
Going outside requires me to go in obligatory social interactions that i don't know how to interpret.
If this is how I'm going to live my life I'm fine with it.

MATLAB is kind of like Windows, or Office:
- It's a lot of different things to a lot of different people.
- It's pretty good at backwards compatibility / stable APIs.
- It's a good-enough, fast-enough 'get shit done' environment at the intersection of math, programming and engineering.

That said, it's faster and more straightforward to do programming-heavy stuff in something like C++. I.e. if you want to use threads, network sockets, parse text, create complex data structures, etc. - you can do it all in MATLAB, but it'll feel like a mix of C and BASIC, and you'll be fighting the environment a bit.

MATLAB is perhaps better compared to Fortran. It has a sort-of similar syntax, except that Fortran is strongly typed and MATLAB is not.

I worked with a guy who did most of his engineering tasks (metal fatigue analysis) in a set of custom C programs he had developed himself. A brilliant engineer, but I'd estimate that he spent 50% longer on equivalent tasks compared to the rest of us in the office using MATLAB.

YMMV.

How about you learn about handles and don't do it the 101 way so that this doesn't apply anymore?

>>60629153
Not the same, but a much more clean way in Python:
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

# Two subplots, unpack the axes array immediately
f, (ax1, ax2) = plt.subplots(1, 2, sharey=True)
ax1.plot(x, y)
ax1.set_title('Sharing Y axis')
ax2.scatter(x, y)

This. You can edit graphic representations, have access to advanced calculus methods and you even have simulink for system editing and control theory.

Sure you can reproduce all those things using another high level language but holy shit! Your time spent working would fucking double.

Pioneers of C (that are still alive)

- Thompson (wrote B, the progenitor and UNIX)
- Kernighan (wrote the canonical text on C)
- Pike (wrote numerous canonical texts on UNIX)

Not one of them programs in C anymore. It's dead Jim. In fact the only person from that era who still programs in C is Don Knuth, who uses CWEB literal programming to output a weird type-safe C.

The reason we have PSUs in our towers is not just to break out everything and hold capacitors. They also use concepts from rectifiers to change your mains AC power to DC power.

Same as "power bricks" for notebooks or loads of other devices.

If you have AC to the DC modular plug for PCI-E, you'll have AC power at the wrong voltage going into a device expecting DC power at different voltages.

Voltages. Plural. Your NEMA cable on the left has two blades, two conductors. The PCI-e 8pin connector has eight pins, 8 conductors. Some ground, some live, some neutral.
