  1. @drinkingpony That was Milla Jovovich, not Liam Neeson. Although, I bet he'd rock that bandage bikini look....

  3. @drinkingpony I pull X much cash out, and then I know how much money I have by opening my wallet.

  5. @drinkingpony Simple: I program a program such that people can gain knowledge of a procedure with this program. They interact (although very crudely) with the program and will be guided at each step of the procedure with a narrated text and helpful highlighting of objects. A VR training has the advantage that it can be trained everywhere (where VR headsets are available) and it doesn't disturb the production line. In the case of the robot arm entering the working area of the robot arm shuts it off completely and the production halts.
    Why is the industry worse: They don't know what they want and if they say what they want it's usually worse. HEY LET'S GAMIFY IT! >Just a simple highscore list sorted by completion time in its "hardest" difficulty (no guidance with highlighted objects or narration). But what kills me is that they want to use the hard coded steps from the guided difficulties instead of offering more interaction freedom (all objects can be picked up and dropped everywhere)

  6. @drinkingpony Worse: Industry. This training is about maintenance of a part of a robot arm. In order not to interrupt production VR trainings are created to train off site. My desire to quit and create a game increased rapidly.

  8. @drinkingpony My soundbar doesn't speak to me. However I'm intrigued to look into Google Home.

  9. @drinkingpony LG SK8. I bought that one because I have a LG TV and it sounds OK. I'm not an audiophile but it's completely alright. Better than the thin TV's squeaky speakers. It's a 2.1 system and it is sufficient for me. A surround system would be nice but laying down the cables and finding a place for the rear speakers is too much hassle for me.

  10. @drinkingpony No. I just deactivated bluetooth pairing through a rather obscure sequence of button presses on the remote.

  12. @drinkingpony Next time look under your shoes for sticky popcorn.

  13. @drinkingpony I use a "hot air blower" kind of popcorn machine because I don't like greasy or oily popcorn and a laser is not yet in my possession. Some day I build myself a CNC router with the option to put a 40W laser on it

  15. @drinkingpony I think for the most part, in Skyrim you install mods and make videos set to Benny Hill music? I have never played.

  16. @drinkingpony I really enjoyed Morrowwind as well. Never played much of Oblivion, but could say it seemed too cluttered. Skyrim was at least a modern clutter.

  17. @drinkingpony Ah. I strongly believe that the official one is as dumb as this Chinese copy of yours. The current and voltage is just passed trough 1:1 from one connector to the other. I don't think that the stand has to regulate anything or do any kind of processing. 25€ for that thing is way too overpriced and should cost 1/10th of that.

  21. @drinkingpony When a train crashes it involves a lot of damage, destruction, and mayhem. I'd call that grotesque of what is destroyed and left of the train.

  23. @drinkingpony Or use the micro controller idea in a different way: make the micro controller translate the signal of a different remote control that the TV recognizes like in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yyy7h7qh80

  24. @drinkingpony Well... You could solder tactile switches on the remote control PCB as a last resort. Or buy a cheap universal remote, or make a remote on your own by buying a micro-controller, an IR sensor, an IR LED, and record the IR signals of the original remote and replay them with your own contraption. Or get a Wii U and use its tablet controller to switch channels and such...

  25. @drinkingpony Repair it. Open it and look what's misaligned. When you are at it you can clean the metal contacts.

  28. @drinkingpony I'd say that depends on your level of investment. I sporadically catch some Marvel movies, see some on home media, and this mostly just lined up well with my work schedule and local school holidays to leave an opening to catch it with my buddy, but I wasn't really Definitely Gonna See It or anything. I thought it was not a waste of money, even with the 3D added on (3D was decent, too. Never took me out, but it wasn't Avatar, either.)

  29. @drinkingpony oh man. I'm in no way a competitive gamer but that is a little bit crushing. However I was often matched with Level 50 players. The ranked matches are a bit more brutal, especially around 8pm

  30. @drinkingpony I was at the end of the movie about 20 hours awake. There has to be some leeway in the interpretation of my words. The film was good nonetheless, it kept me awake.
