He showed he still has a lot of work to do on the defensive side of his game, which almost cost Spurs a goal when Benjamin Pavard got in behind him and had a volley well saved by Paulo Gazzaniga.4But his bow was far better than many would have anticipated after so long on the sidelines — and in a Spurs side with six changes.Deployed on the left of the attacking midfield three, the new-boy had Tottenham’s first chance when Christian Eriksen’s pass sent him down the left in the fourth minute.Sessegnon, as he did on so many occasions, left the Bayern defenders trailing in his wake.This time, however, the teen fired a powerful shot straight into the arms of Manuel Neuer.He was soon sprinting off down the left again and his cross just eluded Lucas Moura in the box.Then in the 20th minute came the moment he will remember for ever after the ball was deflected into his path.Sessegnon took a touch and composed himself before lashing a left-footed shot past Neuer, rated one of the best keepers in the world.Tottenham coach Jose Mourinho says they are not dwelling on 7-2 Bayern defeat ahead of next matchMost read in football THROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for him The scorer’s name echoed around the Allianz for the next few minutes as the 2,000 or so Spurs fans inside paid homage to their new hero.It is so refreshing to hear about a teenager — especially a rich, talented one — who is not loud, arrogant and full of himself.In terms of Sessegnon, silence is well and truly golden.4 Sessegnon let his football do the talking as he crowned his first Tottenham start with a goalCredit: Getty – Contributor4 It capped a fine full debut by the England Under-21 starCredit: AFP or licensorslast_img read more

I Played Trumps Hologram Nightmare with HoloPlayer One

first_imgStay on target With Holography, Mind Control Through Lasers is Now a ThingInside the World’s Oldest Museum of Holograms One of the most fascinating games I played at Play NYC, a conference full of fascinating local New York indie games, put me in the shoes of famous small-handed MODOK Donald Trump. I was being mercilessly assaulted on all sides by hordes of fake news readers and had to escape to safety. I couldn’t directly move forward. I could only move left and right, sidestepping the issues, until I stumbled into a safe space opening and could proceed through. It really makes you think.The gameplay and premise were already pretty politically loaded, but what really took this terror over the top was its hazy, surreal aesthetic. The imagery floated in front of me, like I could actually reach out and touch it, like the game was bleeding out into the real world. It really added to the experience. And what made these psychedelic visuals possible? This nightmare Trump hologram game was a demo for the HoloPlayer One holographic display.Looking Glass Factory is a New York-based team that wants to do cooler and cooler things with holograms. We owe it to Tupac and Goku. Their previous products include various 3D light cubes as well as Volume, a personal holographic display for viewing 3D colorful objects in 3D space without glasses.HoloPlayer One is Looking Glass Factory’s next-generation holographic display. The version I played, compatible with both PC and Mac, is the beta prototype that developers are currently tinkering with. Like Volume, the HoloPlayer One projects 3D holographic images in front of you. However, instead of trapping the images in a cube, the HoloPlayer lets interact with them as if they were on a canvas.I mean canvas literally. Along with game demos, attendees at Play NYC could make holographic drawings with their fingers by just reaching into the light field thanks to Intel “RealSense” 3D camera and interaction technology as well as “volumetric video capture.” It’s the kind of trippy immersion you get from a more experimental VR demo but without the headset, or a more elaborate stationary augmented reality experience. I enjoyed it for many of the same reasons I enjoyed Microsoft HoloLens.The Trump game I played, Marshall’s Theory developed by Looking Glass itself, was just one demo designed to showcase the mind-bending potential of the HoloPlayer One. The glowing fuzz and bizarre presence of holographic visuals just add to the game’s already unsettling dream visuals and themes of paranoia. I should also mention that I played this game using a normal controller, so that’s also an option along with the more hands-on approach of the drawing demo.But Marshall’s Theory is only one of many games we’ll (theoretically) get to play on this box. Right now developers can purchase a limited number of these beta dev kits, shipping this September, for $750 before the price jumps up to $1000.Developers can also access a Unity SDK for the device and read tutorials on Looking Glass Factory’s website and forums. Looking Glass even holds local meet-ups where they teach interested developers in-person about how to use these exciting holographic tools. Once there’s enough software support (a port of Time Traveler by Sega perhaps?) hopefully it’ll just be a matter of time before consumers can get their hands on, and in, the HoloPlayer One.Or maybe the HoloPlayer One shows the real world and we’re all just the holograms?

As of now Im preparing like Im the starter bu

first_img“As of now, I’m preparing like I’m the starter, but that’s the job of any backup quarterback,” Skelton said.Watching film is one thing, but taking reps is a whole different monster, Skelton said. He could find out just how intimidating that monster could be on Sunday, should he be chosen to lead the struggling Cardinals. It sounds like Arizona Cardinals backup quarterback John Skelton is getting the start on Sunday.“Anytime you get NFL experience, it’s always valuable in the end,” Skelton said. “The four games I got last year, all they can do is prepare me for this year and it’s my first start of the year, but I have four already under my belt.”If you’re not careful, you could miss it. Skelton isn’t planning on getting some experience behind the scenes this year. He’s planning on starting. This weekend. As in Sunday. But he says it’s his job.
