Step-down PUBG Mobile Lite as addictive as the original

The game has been designed for entry-level Android phones, running on 2GB or lower memory
The game takes up around 600 MB of space after installation and is free to download and play

New Delhi: The highly-awaited Mobile Lite version of PlayerUnknown’s Battleground, better known as PUBG, is finally available on Google Play Store. Designed for entry level Android phones, running on 2GB or lower memory, the game takes up around 600 MB of space after installation, unlike the original that requires more than three times that.

The game is free to download and play. The app has a store where users can get designer outfits and random gift boxes. These micro transactions start at ₹75 and can cost up to ₹4,000.

The Lite game is built on the same Unreal Engine 4 and doesn’t differ much from the original. Everything from landing on the island of your choosing to scavenging for weapons and shooting off others works on similar lines, so anyone who has played the original will be familiar with the rules of engagement and controls. For instance, you can chat with team members, choose crosshair colour, and map the controls according to your convenience. The handy control options peek and fire which adds sniper like capabilities to any weapon are available in the new game too.

This Robotic Contact Lens Lets You Zoom In And Out By Just Blinking Eyes!

Scientists have been making some pretty amazing breakthroughs in science ranging from outer space, nutrition, artificial intelligence, robots, et al. Speaking of robots, scientists have created a robotic lens that allows users to zoom in by blinking eyes.

Study has been conducted by the researchers at the University of California, San Diego who developed the robotic lens system. Researchers state that the previously developed soft robots were either controlled manually or by pre-written programs, however, this human-machine interface (HMI) makes use of electrooculographic signals generated by eye movements which further helped control the motion and focal length change in a “biomimetic soft lens”. The HMI was developed between human eyes and a soft biomimetic lens that’s mainly made up of electroactive polymer films.

“The motion and deformation of the soft lens are achieved by the (electrical potential induced) actuation of different areas of dielectric elastomer films, mimicking the working mecha-nisms of the eyes of humans and most mammals,” reads the study published in Wiley.

WordPress Contributors Explore the Possibility of a Global Accessibility Event

WordPress’ accessibility team is evaluating the possibility of organizing a virtual Global Accessibility Day, similar to the Polyglots’ Global Translation Day. This marathon-style contributor event has proven to be valuable for the Polyglots in terms of recruiting, onboarding, and fueling progress on translation projects.

Accessibility contributors proposed the idea at a meeting two weeks ago after discussing the team’s desire to have more representation at WordCamp contributor days. WordCamp Europe 2019 had a strong contingency of accessibility contributors, but being present on the ground in Berlin was not an option for the vast majority of the team.

“I heard different people saying that this Contributor Day was extremely useful, because they had the opportunity to talk in person and exchange ideas with a lot of other people,” Stefano Minoia said. “This is really good: if we want to push forward a project like WordPress, it’s extremely important to have the opportunity of working together at least once a year in person.”

Due to the relatively small size of the team and the expense associated with traveling to larger WordCamps, accessibility contributors do not often have the opportunity for in-person collaboration. A remote contributor day focused on accessibility was proposed as an alternative.

“We’re a small group with very little sponsorship,” Joe Dolson said during the initial discussion. “I don’t go to most WordCamps anymore, because the time and expense is just too great for me. I’ll probably go to my local WordCamp only, this year, if I have the time.”

Due to the nature of the work, Dolson anticipates the team may face some challenges in working around some of the constraints of collaborating through a virtual event.
