Theres now an app in case you want to um analyze your


first_img Now playing: Watch this: 0 1:59 You decide: Is the app cheesy? Or a gas? (Excuse us.) Baskoro Lanjar Prasetyo/Getty Images They say there’s an app for everything. Now there really is. A new app has now been released called Fartr, and it’s exactly what you’re thinking. The program lets you record, analyze and share your farts. Fartr cuts through the old taboos and calls itself the “official app of the body positive movement.”All you need to do is hold anywhere on the screen and, well, pass gas (preferably away from your loved ones or strangers) to make a recording. Fartr interprets the audio with a special algorithm and analyzes your flatulence based on volume, length, pitch and rhythm. The app will also provide a unique description of the “sound.” Fartr might describe it like a tuba, a flute or “two farts holding hands,” according to the app’s description. The fun doesn’t stop there. Next, you’ll get your Fartr score, which can be shared by way of text, email or social media if you’re particularly proud or competitive. Post a comment Share your voicecenter_img Tags “At Fartr, we believe flatulence can be beautiful and unique, and we have built an app to capture that,” the company said in a release on Thursday.It’s $2 to take part in this potty humor, but a percentage of the proceeds are donated to causes that support Crohn’s and Colitis research, the release said. Fartr is available on Android and iOS.  Get started with animoji on iPhone X Mobile Applicationslast_img read more


GeForce Now levels up for Android and RTX servers


first_img Preview • Nvidia Shield microconsole streams PC games via Nvidia’s Grid, runs Android apps The latest information on Google Stadia Post a comment 4:48 Nvidia Shield Android TV The gaming experience isn’t complete without a good chair Now playing: Watch this: Nvidia Computers Gaming Mobilecenter_img 56 Photos Tags 0 GeForce Now has been steadily adding games since its original Nvidia Shield launch four years ago. Screenshot by Lori Grunin/CNET With Google’s Stadia cloud-gaming service launch only months away, it shouldn’t surprise me that Nvidia’s almost ready to release its big competitor, GeForce Now, into the wild. In one of its many announcements at Gamescom on Monday, the company revealed “the sun is starting to set on the free beta period.” It’s possible that the company’s been waiting for one of the heretofore big missing pieces, Android support, to be put in place, and now the beta app for the beta service is rolling out to beta subscribers. The RTX Blade servers Nvidia announced last March are also coming online to (hopefully) bring better scalability, quality, performance and stability to the service, starting with Germany and California.Nvidia highly recommends using a Bluetooth controller for Android, since “some games will be unplayable on an Android phone without a gamepad.” Of course, we still don’t know how much it will be when people have to start ponying up or if Nvidia will stick to its “for x hours of gaming” model, two of the huge unanswered questions.GeForce Now, which lets you play games on a relatively low-power local device by rendering them in the cloud and “streaming” the frames to you while sending your input back, is unusual in that you can’t buy games through it, nor is it an all-you-can-play vault service. The app is essentially a hub for games you already own (that have GFN support), and when you hit “play” it runs the relevant launcher for a particular game, such as Steam.

Babies And Baseball A Dad Plants The Seeds For A Shared Love


first_imgPhoto illustration by Claire Harbage/NPR and Paige Vickers for NPRPete Van Vleet plays with his daughter, Madeline, 6, and his son, Jack, 9 months. Van Vleet is a baseball superfan; his favorite team is the Houston Astros. Madeline’s is the Detroit Tigers because she generally likes the teams with animal mascots.Pete Van Vleet of Ashland, Va., is a Houston Astros fan – and was well before the team’s World Series win this year. They were his team back when they were bad. As part of Morning Edition‘s exploration of how fandoms help shape identity, Van Vleet explains how his love for the Astros has been a big part of him since childhood. Even today, if he needs a mood boost, he listens to game highlights from his youth. Can a passion be inherited? Now a father, he’s excited at the idea of sharing his love of baseball with his two young children, Jack, an infant, and Madeline, his 6-year-old daughter and budding Detroit Tigers fan. Here, in his own words, Van Vleet talks about how his fandom has roots that are deeply connected to his parenting of Jack and Madeline.This has been lightly edited for clarity.A team a person roots for says a lot about that person. When I was growing up, there was no team around us, so it was up to me to pick my own team. And the Astros had the coolest uniforms. They played in the Astrodome, which was just fantastic. And they suffered.Claire Harbage/NPRJack, 9 months, sucks on a baseball that was sent by the New York Mets.I will tell this quick story: I used to play baseball by myself in the backyard. I would pretend I was the Astros, and the team would lose. Even in my own imagination the team would lose.Soon after Jack was born I decided to write a letter to every team to ask them, “Why should my son choose you to be a fan?”Claire Harbage/NPRTeams sent souvenirs to Jack, some of which he still needs to grow into. Dirt from Fenway, batting gloves from the Rays, a truck from the Mets and a cap from the Nationals.Eighteen major league teams sent us back letters or emails or packages, and it might include a onesie or a hat or a nice little toy and stickers.I just want him to pick the team that in his heart is going to grab his heart, going to capture his imagination and just going to steal him away for life.Claire Harbage/NPRVan Vleet helps Madeline put on her Detroit Tigers ball cap.I took Madeline to Baltimore to see the Tigers play. We went to two games. The first game was a night game. And around the fifth inning she just kind of crawled into my lap, and I just kind of had to tell myself, “Remember this now. Remember this feeling and this moment now because five years from now, maybe less, she’s not going to do this.” And I know that’s part of growing up, but at least we’ll have that together now.Claire Harbage/NPRVan Vleet kisses Jack as they head inside the house.What I think drives people to fandom, I think there’s some escapism to it. Whatever is going on in my life now, or Madeline’s life, that all kind of lifts off from your shoulder when you enter this cathedral of a ballpark. And for maybe a couple of hours on a summer night, the problems aren’t as big, your worries aren’t as burdensome. You can just enjoy life for that little bit.Dave Blanchard (@blanchardd) is a producer with Morning Edition.

Impressions that linger on


first_imgKorean Culture Centre has organised an exhibition titled Hanji Impression that  introduces ‘hanji’ to India by Korean and Indian artists Park Yeo-Sang and Sharmi Chowdhury that commenced on January 15. Hanji literally means ‘the paper of Korea’. The main material is the fibrous skin of the mulberry.Hanji is not simply paper. It is used in a variety of ways, and has a different name according to its use. Both the artists uses Hanji as the base for their artistic interpretations.  Even with changing times and the dominance of smart phones and digital culture, nothing can completely replace paper. As a medium of expressing emotions, the artists hope that hanji undergoes a transformation at the hands of the artists to become a valuable piece of artist. As a part of exhibition, workshops on Hanji making, Hanji book making and Hanji calendar making also took place. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Taking a look back at the history of mankind, one can say that the invention of paper marked the beginning of civilization. It is on paper that letters and characters were carved and books written and this material has been a source of progress for man. Through the invention of paper, man was able to leave behind wonderful works of art instead of leaving artistic imprints only in caves. Korea’s traditional hanji boasts a history of over a thousand years. The world’s oldest book printed with a metallic printing type was printed on hanji. This book was published in the 14th century and has been preserved for over 600 years in its paper form to exhibit the high preservation quality of hanji. The hanji that is produced traditionally and the type that is machine-produced both have a soft and warm quality. Hanji has the unique feature of being able to transmit the emotive qualities and thus provides attraction to today’s artists.When: On till February 5 Where: Exhibition Hall, Korean Cultural CentreTiming: 10 am – 5 pmlast_img read more
