Video game collectible maker Fangamer is now seeking Kickstarter funding for the Flip Grip, a new Nintendo Switch holster that lets you more easily and portably play select games in their vertical "TATE mode" orientation.
The Flip Grip was first publicly mulled last April by Retronauts podcast co-host and classic gaming expert Jeremy Parish, who's working with engineer Mike Choi on the device. Parish then teased the grip in March as a way to hold the Switch and two Joy-Con controllers comfortably in your hands with the screen oriented vertically.
Martin Tripp, the recently fired Tesla employee who the company sued under accusations of "hacking" company systems, told Ars on Thursday morning that he is actually a whistleblower who is trying to reveal internal waste and safety flaws in Tesla batteries.
He also denied to Ars on Thursday that he had made a comment to a friend to "shoot the place up," which prompted a visit by the Storey County Sheriff. The local authorities ultimately determined that there was "no credible threat."
"Absolutely not!" he told Ars. "The ONLY thing I have said to any ‘friends’ is I sent a link to the CNBC article to five of them and asked if they really thought I was a hacker."

Today we present the second installment of my wide-ranging interview with the world-renowned roboticist and AI pioneer, Rodney Brooks. Part one ran yesterday—so if you missed it, click right here.
Today’s installment starts with the new robotic era that dawned when Brooks' latest company—Rethink Robotics—launched its Baxter robot. Baxter and its successor, Sawyer, shifted the industry in both obvious and subtle ways, which we discuss. We then consider the ancient legacy equipment and standards that still plague so much factory automation. Next, we dive into society’s urgent need for robots to assist with elder care in the coming years. This capability is currently remote, though many are starting work on it.
One of the most entertaining and provocative sections of the interview follows, when we get into self-driving cars. Brooks finds most of the industry’s launch forecasts and timelines to be absurdly aggressive. This is unwelcome news for those of us who want fully autonomous cars yesterday! But this realm sits at the very intersection of robotics and AI—two fields that Brooks has occupied for decades—and his arguments are powerful (and often quite funny).

White House advisor Stephen Miller is widely seen as the mastermind behind President Donald Trump's controversial policy of separating parents from their children at the US southern border. Yesterday, Splinter, a news and opinion site that was previously known as Fusion, published Miller's personal cell phone number.
When Splinter and others started tweeting out Miller's number, it got the attention of Twitter's content police. Twitter doesn't allow users to post private information about someone else without their consent, and this rule doesn't have an exception for people responsible for intensely controversial policies.
Users who shared Miller's number were forced to delete the tweet and had their accounts locked out for several hours. Some people have reported that users could get suspended just for linking to the Splinter story—even if the tweet itself didn't contain Miller's number.
