Sega doesn’t make consoles anymore, and that means it doesn’t make controllers, either. The only third-party manufacturer with Sega’s blessing is Retro-Bit, and after playing with the company’s Sega Genesis and Saturn controllers, it’s easy to see why. These gamepads are faithful reproductions of the originals, with a set of shoulder buttons and USB connectivity. The Sega Genesis gamepad is available for $14.99 and comes in black or translucent blue, while the Saturn gamepad is $19.99 in opaque or translucent black. These controllers will definitely hit the nostalgia nerve of any 16-bit Sega fan and are practically vital accessories for the Sega Genesis Mini. We tested the opaque black versions of both the Genesis and Saturn gamepads, which will satisfy fans of their respective console. The Genesis pad is a classic, plump kidney bean-shaped controller, measuring 6.2 inches wide. It’s mostly matte black plastic, with glossy black plastic cutouts around the direction pad, face buttons, and the top where the USB cable is permanent...

Ikelite Unveil Dome Port for Olympus TG-6 with Olympus Fisheye Converter

Ikelite has announced a special dome designed for use with the Olympus Tough TG-6 and the Olympus FCON-T02 fisheye converter with CLA-T01 adapter. The lens allows shooters to capture both circular (8mm full-frame equiv.) and diagonal fisheye (15mm full-frame equiv.) shots when the TG-6 is zoomed to either end of the zoom range. The dome port, which replaces the standard flat port on the housing, provides sharper, higher-quality images by reducing refraction, distortion and aberrations. Weighing 11.8oz (335g) out of water, the port has an acetal body and an acrylic dome. A shade is included, which reduces reflections, provides protection, and allows the dome to be placed face down on a flat surface for easier assembly and disassembly.  The new dome port is available by itself for $350 or bundled with the Olympus FCON-T02 lens and CLA-T01 adapter kit for $575.   When purchasing underwater photography equipment like the product mentioned in this article, please support DPG by supporting our retail partner—Backscatter.com.

The 4 Most Popular Fall Dresses, According to Fashion Girls

When you think about the fall wardrobe basics you couldn’t possibly live without, a few staples probably come to mind first. Yes, there’s the obvious like black ankle boots, moto jackets, and chunky sweaters, but there’s another must-have that’s equally as important to a solid autumn offering. Ding, ding, ding! You guessed it—the fall dress. You’re most likely well aware, but the dress silhouette in question is far different than the summer go-to you wore for the last few months. It’s normally in a knee or midi length, has long sleeves (or has the ability to be layered with knits), and features thicker fabrics. While there’s a variety of picks out there that fit this description, it seems the fashion community has committed to four fall dresses over the past few years. Yes, these are the styles that haven’t just popped up here and there but continue to quite literally invade fashion month, the streets, and everywhere in between. To highlight further, we’re showcasing the most famous fall dress silhouettes that style-setters collectively wear on repeat. Naturally, we shopped out the coveted finds for each as well to get your closet ready for the season. Style Tip: Go for th...

(China) Southern Hospitality: Flying China Southern’s New 787-9 in Business From Vancouver to Guangzhou

This post contains references to products from one or more of our advertisers. We may receive compensation when you click on links to those products. For an explanation of our Advertising Policy, visit this page. Mainland Chinese airlines don’t have the best reputations among frequent flyers. Sure, there are some exceptions, but for the most part when you are faced with the prospect of flying long-haul on a Chinese carrier, you’re probably expecting an airline that overpromises and then underdelivers. The hard product is there, but just about everything else is sorely lacking. China Southern is a Guangzhou-based behemoth that has a lot of ambition. So much ambition, in fact, that it wants to become the world’s largest airline within three to five years. And if it wants to dominate the global commercial aviation market, it’s got to have the product to back it up. In the past, TPG reviews of China Southern in both first class and premium economy have been a mixed bag — in both reviews it was noted that while the hard product was solid, the experience was lacking in other ways. I immediately identified this carrier as a way to get from the West Coast of North America to China after...

Modern Farmer How-To: A Better Way to Build a Raised Bed

But, oh, the payoff! Crafted of long-lasting cedar, this beauty deters both weeds and tunneling rodents, thanks to its landscape-fabric and hardware-cloth underpinnings. A strip of copper flashing repels slugs, while a few simple components – drip tubing, pipe straps – render the whole shebang ready for drip irrigation and hoop-house fittings. And at two feet tall, it accommodates plenty of productivity-boosting soil and a ledge that doubles as a back-saving bench. Sold? Let’s get started. Leather work gloves Protective eyewear Tape measure Circular saw* Carpenter’s speed square Tin snips* Scissors Power drill with assorted bits Ratchet with a 9/16″ socket Staple gun Hammer Post-hole digger Using the circular saw*, cut the 2x12s into four 4′-long pieces and four 7’9“-long pieces; cut the 4x4s into six 3′-long pieces; and cut the 2x8s into two 4’41/2“-long pieces and two 8’41/2“-long pieces. Using the speed square, cut the ends of the 2x8s at 45-degree angles so that the ends of the shorter and longer pieces will fit together, as shown opposite, top left and bottom. Using tin snips*, cut the hardware cloth to an 8′ length and cut the flashing into two 4“x 20′ pieces. Using scisso...

Global Punching Press Market to Witness Exponential Rise in Revenue Share During the Forecast Period

A punching press is a machine used for making or creating a punch into a metal sheet or plate material. Although punching press is an old technology used by many end use industries, such as automotive and the military sector, various new innovations have now evolved to perform punching operations. A punching press also performs multi-task operations, such as ribbing, forming, extruding, removing burrs from parts, making flanges up to one inch high and many more. A punching press is fitted with die sets and punches. Using different die sets enables the making of different types of holes into the subject material. Punching is done through a vertically aligned ram that forces the punch into the workpiece. A punching press can be of varied sizes, right from a manually operated small punching press that contains a single die set, to a large multi stationed CNC operated machine. Punching presses are widely used in automotive, military applications, power industry, ship building and machinery manufacturing. They also find many applications in the healthcare industry where they are used in wheelchair assist platforms and supply cabinets. Punching presses are available with different pun...

Ultrafast rotation of magnetically levitated macroscopic steel spheres

Our world is increasingly powered by electricity, which is largely converted to or from mechanical energy using electric motors. Several applications have driven the miniaturization of these machines, resulting in high rotational speeds. Although speeds of several hundred thousand revolutions per minute have been used industrially, we report the realization of an electrical motor reaching 40 million rpm to explore the underlying physical boundaries. Millimeter-scale steel spheres, which are levitated and accelerated by magnetic fields inside a vacuum, are used as a rotor. Circumferential speeds exceeding 1000 m/s and centrifugal accelerations of more than 4 × 108 times gravity were reached. The results open up new research possibilities, such as the testing of materials under extreme centrifugal load, and provide insights into the development of future electric drive systems. Electric motors and generators have seen widespread use in numerous applications since their invention. Fueled by applications such as centrifuges, drive systems for turbo compressors, machining spindles, flywheels, and generators for micro gas turbines, a trend toward miniaturization and increased power de...

Solving the Bane of Stretch-Blow Molding: Off-Center Gates : Plastics Technology

There are many reasons why off-center gates happen, and processors should be aware of all of them to quickly find the ones causing the problem. Bottle with an off-center gate. The lower of the red circles shows the center of the bottom insert of the mold. The higher one shows where the gate ended up after blowing. Preform mandrel with three segments. The segments hold the preforms concentric as they travel through the ovens. Typical setup on a continuous-motion linear machine with passive rotation. The belt can be adjusted to push against the gears, but should not push hard enough to cause side-stress against the bearing. When the preform is stretched into the blow mold, the vestige of the injection molding process, mostly referred to as a gate, must be placed and held in the center of the bottom insert of the mold. If this does not happen, the side to which the gate is pushed becomes thicker, and, consequently, the other side will be thinner. This is simply the effect of shorter and longer paths of the preform wall to reach the blow mold wall. With bottles becoming lighter and thinner as a result of cost-cutting measures as well as environmental concerns (“carbon footprint”), ...

10 Best Professional LED Grow Lights: Your Buyer’s Guide (2018)

Professional cannabis growers need the highest quality equipment in their grow rooms. Everything from ventilation to nutrients to lighting needs to be top of the line in order to produce massive, high quality buds. The best professional LED grow lights give you big yields and high quality buds. Whether you sell to a dispensary or keep your weed for personal use, you will not get great results with sub-par equipment. In this article we are going to go over the top 10 best LED grow lights for pro growers. LED lights are definitely the way to go in a professional grow operation. LEDs are superior to traditional HID or HPS because they offer a wide band spectrum without wasting energy in the form of heat. This means less risk of burning your plants, less ventilation needed, and less chance of nutrient burn, which happens when overheated plants become too thirst and suck up way too much nutrient solution. You will spend less money on the lights themselves as well, because although LEDs cost more upfront, they do not require nearly as much maintenance as HPS, which need to have their bulbs replaced once per year or more. In this article we are going to focus on lights that are 600W a...
