That is one ugly ass case. But it has a shaky cam advert and rgb.
That is one of the coolest, ugliest cases I have ever seen. There's a certain brutal aesthetic to it that pleases my eye.
Though I love this case more. I'd definitely pay someone to give it the Hellraise puzzlebox treatment.
It's....not a good case. You can't hide ANYTHING, and it takes up way more space than you think it will.

Speaking of electrical devices, here's something new from the LPL. It's a bit different than his usual fare.

When you overly monetize something, it ceases to be a "game" and becomes a "product." Then you truly must offer something of value for people to be willing to pay for it.

Anyone else enjoying the laid back show, Resident Alien? I'm not too far in atm, about the middle of ep3 but there's been some good laughs.
Something that's sorely needed in these times of covid, at least in my mind.

No gameplay. I hate trailers like that.

Wtf, if it isn't too much of a breach of privacy, can you guys say what state you are in, and approximate age group? I am in a clusterfuck state at the moment, with no idea when I can get any vaccine.

Firms backed by Robert Downey Jr. and Bill Gates have funded an electric motor company that slashes energy consumption.
"a better electric motor.
It’s not as flashy as an arc reactor, but like light bulbs, motors are a ubiquitous and wholly unglamorous technology that have been operating basically the same way since the nineteenth century. And, like the light bulb, they’re due for an upgrade."
From what I'm seeing in the video, it's somewhat similar to the way brushless DC motors work. You eliminate the brushes which cause friction and wasted heat, and eventually wears down the brushes. The flip side is that it's more complicated because you have to use electronics to control when each coil is activated.
It's common in DC motors now and it's what revolutionized R/C electric motors for flying models, including drones. It also makes electric car drive motors very efficient. If you look at a teardown of a Tesla drive motor, it's just a massively scaled up version of a model airplane brushless motor.
This is much trickier with AC motors, but yeah, it would greatly improve efficiency and life expectancy. As mentioned in the video, these types of motors are already used in certain industrial applications like nuclear plants and refineries, where you need a long life expectancy and/or can't afford to have sparks from traditional motor brushes, ignite an explosive gas or vapor.
The breakthrough seems to be finding a much more cost effective way to design the very complicated electronics, if I'm reading this right.

I find this interesting. No backups? Because a couple of white hats downloaded practically everything from their poorly configured buckets, so it's not like it wasn't possible.
Or a) Too lazy to try to import the data into a different type of database or b) They'd just as soon not have terrabytes of incriminating 1/6 evidence on their new servers that they might have to give to the DOJ if they're served with a court order?
