first_img ‘Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ Was Final Mission From Late Nintendo President The Nintendo Switch is being pitched as both a home console and a handheld device. If one were to play the system at home when it is securely placed in its dock, there’s not much to worry about. But on the road, consumers have to be mindful of the system’s battery life.The problem of a short battery life can be mitigated with removable batteries. This allows folks to swap out their old batteries for new ones or for longer-lasting ones. For a system like Switch, having a removable battery would solve the problem of running out of power mid-game while on the road. However, it appears that the Switch will not allow users to swap out the system’s battery.According to a report from Engadget, an FCC filing states that the system’s battery cannot be removed. This is surprising considering how users were able to change the battery of the Wii U gamepad. In fact, Nintendo even released a high-capacity battery for the console. On the other hand, a lot of smartphones and tablets do not feature removable batteries. In that sense, the Switch isn’t doing anything radically different from other hardware manufacturers.An important thing to note is that this FCC filing is based on a production prototype of the Switch. This means that the final version could have a removable battery. Also, since we still do not have much concrete information about the Switch’s capabilities, it is possible that the system could have a USB port (or ports). If it does, users might be able to charge the system’s battery by using a standard portable charger.Nintendo will hold a special Switch-centric Nintendo Direct on January 12, 2017. It is expected that we’ll finally get official information regarding the system’s games, hardware capabilities, and of course, battery life at that time. Stay on targetlast_img read more

first_img Blue Origin, Jeff Bezos’ space company, completed a record-breaking test flight of its New Shepard suborbital spacecraft on Thursday.The rocket, which blasted off from Blue Origin’s facility in West Texas at 9:35 a.m. EST, was the first time Blue Origin launched and landed one of its spacecrafts five times, CNBC reported. The NS-11 Mission, which was the 11th test flight of Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket, enabled 38 different science payloads for customers, including nine experiments from NASA, to be carried to suborbital space and back, Space.com noted.During the test flight, the New Shepard booster launched its capsule into suborbital space from the Texas-based launch site and then returned to Earth for a vertical landing. The capsule continued on a suborbital trajectory, re-entered our planet’s atmosphere, and made a parachute landing near Blue Origin’s original launch area.The New Shepard rocket sent Blue Origin’s capsule to an altitude of 346,406 feet and preliminary data indicated that the rocket reached almost Mach 3 on its way up (almost three times the speed of sound), with the mission lasting a little over 10 minutes.3-2-1… LIFTOFF! @BlueOrigin’s #NewShepard rocket just launched carrying nine @NASA_Technology-supported payloads, including a 3D printer for making metal parts, a medical suction device and more.

This is the 11th landing of a New Shepard booster, and the 5th landing for this particular vehicle #NS11— Blue Origin (@blueorigin) May 2, 2019 Stay on target NASA Taps SpaceX, Blue Origin to Boost Space TechElon Musk Makes ‘Ballsy’ Joke About Jeff Bezos’ Blue Moon Lander on Twitter center_img Congrats to the Blue Origin team on what looks to be another wholly successful flight #NS11 #LaunchLandRepeat— Blue Origin (@blueorigin) May 2, 2019Interestingly enough, New Shepard’s purpose isn’t to only ferry science research: The rocket was built for carrying paying customers to space. The six-seat New Shepard will need to undergo more tests first, however, the vehicle could be flying people sometime in the future.Photo Credit: Blue Origin/YouTubeMore on Geek.com:Blue Origin’s New Shepard Spacecraft Successfully Launches NASA ExperimentsCrack Open the Piggy Banks: Blue Origin to Charge $200K for Space FlightsSpaceX Conducts Static Fire Ties for Falcon Heavy Megarocket Corelast_img read more
