Tesla 也出手支援波多黎各

在「Tesla makes quick work of Puerto Rico hospital solar power relief project」這邊看到的,看起來是在醫院支援太陽能板與電池:

看照片像是用停車場的位置來放太陽能板?

用 Xbox 控制器操控潛艇

拿民用品當作軍事器材不是第一次了,不過拿來操作潛艇倒是蠻值得看一下的:「The U.S. Navy's most advanced submarines will soon be using Xbox controllers」。


在 lab 環境測試的畫面。

原因頗簡單,就是成本考量,而且很容易取得:

The company says the photonic mast handgrip and imaging control panel that cost about $38,000 can be replaced with an Xbox controller that typically costs less than $30.

不過有個問題啊,軍用品一般都可以抵抗 EMP,這種民用品應該不行吧 XDDD

舊金山要求新的建築物都必須有太陽能設備

舊金山通過在 2017 年之後的建築物必須有 15% 的屋頂面積必須是太陽能相關的設備:「San Francisco Is Requiring Solar Panels on All New Buildings」:

The ordinance, passed unanimously by the city’s Board of Supervisors, extends an existing California law which requires 15 percent of roof space on new buildings to be “solar ready” — available and unshaded. That ordinance applies to residential or commercial buildings 10 stories or shorter.

也就是說,可以是太陽能的發電,也可以是太陽能集熱的設備:

Under the new ordinance, which will go into effect in 2017, new buildings need to have solar energy of some kind installed, either electricity-generating panels or solar heating units.

希望在 2020 年達到 100% 再生能源的目標:

San Francisco took a major step toward its own goal of meeting the city’s electricity demands with 100 percent renewable energy by 2020.

這成為美國第一個主要城市通過這樣的規範:

This week, San Francisco became the first major U.S. city to require all new buildings to have solar panels on their roofs, according to Scott Wiener, the city supervisor who introduced the bill.

外接 iPad Retina 面板當螢幕用...

LGLP097QX1-SPA1 有被蘋果拿去當 iPad Retina 的顯示面板,但也有零賣... 於是就有人在 eBay 上面買了一張改裝:「Connecting an iPad retina LCD to a PC」。

在 eBay 買 USD$55,再把其他零件成本一起算進來,全部也才 USD$70... 是個 2048x1536 的高解析度螢幕 XDDD

下面這兩張的效果真不錯 XD
