Earlier this year, when Microsoft revealed its augmented reality (AR) device called the HoloLens, the demonstrations blew everyone away
Since then (now that more people have had a chance to try it in-person), the hype has died down a bit, but the demonstration videos still manage to stir a bit of excitement about the prospect of manipulating holograms in our everyday lives. The latest demo from Autodesk, the 3D design software company, doesn’t disappoint either
In the video, we see designers wearing the HoloLens in collaborative engineering sessions, crafting everything from …

Kobe announced his retirement last night. He’s a guy you grew up watching and got to know. What was your first thoughts when you heard this would be it for him?
I did idolize Kobe Bryant. I studied him, wanted to be like him. He was our Michael Jordan. I watched Michael toward the end of his career with the Wizards and I seen that’s what Kobe emerged as the guy for us. I’ve been disappointed this year because you guys (media) treated him like shit. He’s a legend and all I hear is about how bad he’s playing, how bad he’s shooting, time for him to hang it up. You guys treated one of our legends like shit and I didn’t really like it. Hopefully now you can start being nice to him now that he decided to retire after this year. It was sad the way he was getting treated. He had just an amazing career, a guy who changed the game for me as a player mentally and physically. Means so much to the game of basketball. Someone I’m always gonna look to advice for anything. Just a brilliant, brilliant, intelligent man. Sad to see him go. He put his mark on the game. …

Cruz went on to attack Clinton as supporting “abortion on demand in all circumstances up until the moment of birth.” He went on to say that as a lifelong conservative, he had never met another conservative that wanted to ban contraceptives. …
