Odegaard, Asensio and Hazard are the only safe ‘signings’

first_imgRegarding Asensio and Hazard, in this new scenario that arises and if it were impossible to sign a forward of guarantees (Haaland type), it goes back to the idea of ​​last season. “Hazard and Asensio will contribute the goals that were lost with Cristiano’s departure.” The injuries of the two footballers have prevented seeing if it was a crazy idea. Now, circumstances compel. Based on the figures, Mallorcan and Belgian added 28 goals in 2017-18 (11 and 17 respectively) and 27 goals in 2018-19 (six Asensio, 21 Hazard). The numbers come out, also taking into account the increase in Benzema’s scoring ability after Cristiano’s departure. At this point of uncertainty due to the coronavirus crisis, no fixed date for soccer to resume and waiting for what the Ministry of Health can say about it, the only thing that is clear In Madrid’s offices regarding the preparation of the next season’s squad, the return to the playing fields of Asensio (24 years old) and Hazard (29) and the return of the loan of Odegaard (21). The three will be the three proper names on which Madrid will be based next season.Today in the club they are beginning to realize that this summer there may be no noticeable transfers in the world of soccer. Without the money from televisions and the box office in stadiums, the industry is technically bankrupt. The consequences of this crisis in the world of football are still unknown, and at least in Madrid they have the good news of those three names that are put on the table. There are few more certainties in Madrid next season, than He must decide more things like whether Areola is still in goal or Lunin returns, if he attends to the request of the Borussia to stay with Achraf and pull Reguilón or if he sells to a Ceballos that has little to do with Zidane even knowing that the market will be devalued. The only sure thing is that, today, a future of skinny cows and many difficulties is in sight.center_img On the other hand, Odegaard (21 years old) must be the main name of the project in terms of generating illusion. The Norwegian was being one of the interrupted championship footballers, protagonist of the main attack statistics. Odegaard participates in 62% of Real’s plays that end in a goal. The transfer to the Real that has been signed is only for one year although verbally the possibility was left open for another one. But Madrid has made the decision to recruit him. He will be important in the project because he is the man called to to supply the benefits of a Modric (34 years old) who is already at the end of his career.last_img read more

PlayStation VR Torn Down by IFixit Gets High Marks for Repairability

first_img Sony Patents New PSVR Motion ControllerHands-On: Firewall: Zero Hour is the Best VR Game I’ve Ever Played The market for consumer virtual reality is exploding right now, but it’s mostly been a battle between the Vive and the Rift at the high end. Now, a new competitor enters the market; PlayStation VR. This $400 VR headset plugs into the PlayStation 4 to deliver VR gaming with a minimum of fussing around. As is the custom, iFixit has gotten their hands on the PlayStation VR to see how it works by tearing it down. It turns out to be a surprisingly easy device to take apart.The PlayStation VR is heavier than most headsets at 610g, but it has a much larger headband to keep it stable. There’s also a big rubber cowling around the lenses to keep light out. That pulls off without any tools, and the plastic casing can be opened up with a simple JIS screws, and it’s not glued together. With the front panel liberated from the case, the entire rig of position tracking LEDs comes off with flex cables. The PS VR uses Sony’s PlayStation Eye camera for position tracking rather than invisible IR used by the competition. Upshot: the LEDs make it look futuristic.AdChoices广告After disconnecting a simple power cable and HDMI connector, the iFixit team was able to liberate the headband from the main VR unit. With that done, the motherboard could be freed. It’s a fairly modest affair, as most of the hard work is done by the game console. The board has chips for the power supply, HMDI interface, LEDs, and a low-power ARM Cortex-M0 microcontroller. With the board out, the display is finally freed. This is a 5.7-inch 1080p OLED panel with an interesting hexagonal sub-pixel matrix. Unlike the Rift and Vive, the PS VR uses a single display panel. With everything else out of the case, the PS VR’s 14mm conventional lenses pop right out.iFixit gives the PlayStation VR a very solid repairability score of 8 out of 10. There’s very little glue used to hold it together, and most parts are secured with standard JIS screws and snap-on cables. The only negative is that it does have a lot of parts, so you’ll need to be very careful to get everything back in place correctly after a repair. Stay on targetlast_img read more
