It provides only the raw basics of what you need to style your own web pages, such as margins, sizes, positioning, colors, that sort of thing.

All you need to do to wipe an object from footage is draw a box around it, and the software takes care of the rest for you. Here are a couple examples of the AI in action: As you will notice, while the algorithm gets rid of the person crossing the street in a rather convincing way, it…

How OnePlus uses robotic hands, mannequin heads, and a tiny carnival ride to test its phone cameras

As tech writers, we get to play with a lot of phones. But, it’s not often that we get to peek behind the curtain to see how engineers are working on the product. That’s why I was pretty excited when OnePlus invited us to visit its camera lab in Taiwan.

It hardly bears thinking about. So, if Soylent is meant to be the nutrition of those with no time —…
