How to Activate YouTube Dark Mode?

How to Activate YouTube Dark Mode?

Did you ever stay up at night binge watching cat videos or anything that catches your fancy? Ever wish the bright lighting had been dulled to go a little easier on the eyes? Ever streamed videos in the dark to hide its content from your parents or significant other? Well your prayers have been answered. YouTube has developed a super-secret ‘dark mode’ to make our lives a little easier.

Even though YouTube has been in business since 2006, it has lacked this common feature that has otherwise been available in a lot of video players around the web.

We have found a way to officially ‘dim the lights’ so you can better focus on the video you choose to stream. The fully functional dark mode was first discovered by Owen Williams who chose to share this information with all other users across the World Wide Web.

The dark mode not only swaps YouTube’s classic red and white theme for an all-black, but also tweaks its interface. The dark theme can be toggled on and off like a light switch. The activation takes a bit of fiddling but I promise the whole process will take less than a minute for even the most technologically challenged out there. So read on, to find out how to activate YouTube’s dark mode.

You will not find this feature being officially advertised as it’s still in the testing stage. Google is financing a trial for this experiment as a part of their new website’s design.

For now, only Chrome users can benefit from this experience. After enabling this effect it will apply to the entire web page including the homepage and dedicated channel pages. So let’s get started.

  • First things first, install the most recent version of Google Chrome that is, Version 57 or later.
  • Next, navigate to YouTube’s home page and create a new account. If you already got one, log into it.
  • Now you have to open the Developers Window. You can do this by going to Chrome’s Developers Tool Tab. If you are a Windows user, hit Ctrl + Shift + I on Chrome. If you’re a Mac user press Option + Command + I to do the same.
  • After this click on the ‘Console’ tab.
  • You must Paste in the following text. Carefully note the code: document.cookie=”VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=fPQ4jCL6EiE”
  • Hit enter, close the Developers Window, and refresh your browser.
  • To find the dark mode toggle, click on your profile icon in the main settings menu in the top right.
  • Click the toggle switch to activate Dark Mode.
  • Voila! You have activated dark mode, enjoy your videos in the dark all night.
  • Even if this method does not work for you, Youssef Sarhan points out that adding ‘gaming’ in the beginning of your YouTube URL will have a similar effect without changing anything in the console.
  • Unfortunately, you need to reactivate the dark mode every time you restart Chrome.

 

So here you have it! By adding a dark UI you have now achieved a bold new look.

New Solar Powered Device can Create Water out of Thin Air, Even in Deserts

Finally we can create water from the air using Solar Powered Device

The global warming is real and we are dealing with water issue across the planet which is not seen many as a pressing condition. Thankfully, a new research has helped in bringing such Solar Powered Device into the world which will help in harvesting drinking right from the air. It is fascinating to note that our atmosphere contains as much as 13,000 trillion liters of waters which remains untapped. Technology news gripping everyone states that a new Solar Powered Device has been developed a team of researchers from US which has the potential to extract potable water from the air. It doesn’t need a huge power sources rather it relies on the solar energy.

The new solar powered water harvester

The best thing about this Solar Powered Device is that it will be of great help in generating waster in low relative humidity (RH) of just 20 percent. This low level of RH is commonly found in the deserts and arid areas all around the world. This also happens to be major challenged for the team to overcome as getting water of the air through solar power is almost next to impossible in such conditions. Technology news has stated that the solar water harvester is based on the experimental data generated by the scientist and this has been married with a theoretical framework for the next stage.

Secondly this Solar Powered Device has to be made economically viable by ensuring that it isn’t an energy hog. Therefore researchers had worked hard at making the ‘solar energy’ input work like a charm with this air water harvesting technology so it remains affordable for the target region users to employ in the upcoming future. Lead researcher on this project has stated that this technology will help in bringing quality drinking water in the remote arid areas of India. Furthermore the large scale utilization of this device will certainly help in changing the landscape of the water usage in India specifically in the sunlight abundant but water scarce regions.

How this technology came into being?

A number of technology news has stated that the core of this device happens to be a metal-organic framework has been constructed at MIT. This framework is made up with a class of unique materials which shows high porosity levels. These framework materials possess a high affinity for the water molecules while results in actively pulling water out of the air. Fortunately this framework doesn’t hold up on the water too tightly so that it becomes concentrated. Once the water has been derived from the air then it’s released using the temperature changes induced by the natural sunlight. The resultant water is absorbed on a thin film which this device stores in a condenser.

As per technology news forwarded by the team the absorption and desorption rate of this Solar Powered Device is set at creating 2.8 liters of water in 12 hours with RH level below 20 percent. The rooftop tests conducted by researchers at MIT have shown commendable results for this device in the outdoor conditions.

Digital Fabrication To Revolutionize The Future Of Architecture

Poor construction management and substandard project vision can easily endanger the completion of any project. Several building projects still include inferior working conditions which are not eloquently sustainable. The world is constantly changing and with it the construction processes are also being developed. Construction processes that involve digital technologies ensure sustainable working conditions, productivity and sustainability. That’s not all, the integration of new technologies also enable the creation of fresh architectural expressions. The advent of digital fabrication has made it easier to use programmed computers as a medium of completing the projects successfully using digital designs.

 

Digital Building Culture

The potential of this digital building culture can be fully exploited with funding and institutional environments that facilitate proper interdisciplinary research. The process of digital fabrication unites the separate disciplines like robotics, control system engineering, materials science, computer science, structural design and architecture.

Digital Fabrication_1Recently, the AAAS 2017 meeting in Boston was held in which the RMIT University, University of California, and Jane Burry amongst others explained the development in digital building culture. The detailed presentations they showcased at this event highlight the integration of digital technologies with building process, planning and design. The process of digital fabrication in itself is revolutionary and can successfully renovate the building industry.

Overcoming Challenges in Digital Fabrication

Assistant professor, Jonas Buchli at ETZ Zurich and private investigator in NCCR highlighted the expanded use of digital fabrication using domain specific robotic technology in prefabrication and construction sites.

He also demonstrated the various challenges that the researchers are going through in the integration and further development of digital technologies in varied fields of architecture. Digital fabrication and increased use of digital designs for higher quality projects can successfully transform the future of architecture.

Free Of Limitations

Digital fabrication has helped designers by unchaining them from the limitations of dimensional representational techniques. It has freed the designers from the various constraints of physical modeling and drawing.

This has helped them solve the various hindrances of extraneous factors like material and fabrication constraints, and environmental and structural optimization. The director of RMIT University in Australia demonstrated how the various opportunities for quality control, mass customization, variation, optimization, and automation can be explored.

Digital fabrication helps realize the potentialities of these opportunities in full scale construction projects. Burry also demonstrated examples of how innovation and research has successfully changed construction practices. For a better insight of development she will use case studies of Antonio Sagrada Familia.

3D printing digital fabrication enables building objects using layers of plastic or metal. However, the process of development in 3D printing has been slow and has till date only enabled small scale object printing.

The Associate Professor in Berkeley USA, Ronald Rael is devising new methods to overcome this challenge. He has been working on the project for quite some time, and has been able to develop new materials that will help overcome the challenge of costs and scales of 3D printing. Ronald demonstrated that sustainable resources amassed from waste streams derived for 3D printing in architecture will be a viable solution for overcoming the challenges.
