Pokémon Sword and Shield’s camping is perfectly fluffy

  • Games like Pokémon X and Y, Sun and Moon, and Let’s Go incorporate some sort of bonding, from giving your pals a good pat to feeding and cleaning them up.
  • In Pokémon Sword and Shield, downtime doesn’t just happen with one member of your team; it happens with the whole gang at once with the game’s camping feature.
  • When you’re out in the wild and between towns, camping is an easy way to quickly revive and refresh your party.
  • Sword and Shield feature a curry cooking option where you choose from berries and other food items you’ve collected to create new recipes.
  • But having the option is what I like most about Pokémon games: brief moments built on my own attachments to fantastical creatures I’d never know otherwise.

How to hack your holiday meal

  • After those hours are up, heat a skillet (I like Le Creuset's cast-iron options) to scalding, then carefully place the breast skin-side down to sear it.
  • For a bigger group you might need to prepare multiple halves this way, making sure the meat is in a single layer in the sous vide so that it cooks evenly.
  • At $99, this small but powerful sous vide cooker heats quickly, controls temperatures well and comes with an accompanying app to adjust temperatures from afar (or, um, the couch).
  • I like to use one of my many electric kettles to boil water at the same time as I heat up more on the stove -- a basic hack, for sure, but one of the most useful time-savers I know of.
  • Make sure to sous vide the potatoes for a few hours before mashing them to break down their starch molecules into maltose.

These are the 5 leaders in the self-driving-car race

  • Tech companies and auto companies are all racing to be the first to roll out self-driving cars onto the road.
  • The self-driving revolution and the prevalence of ride-hailing services such as Uber and Lyft threatens to reduce individual car ownership, which would eat into a sizeable piece of automakers' core business.
  • Meanwhile, tech companies are jockeying for a piece of the self-driving car market, which Apple CEO Tim Cook dubbed "the mother of all AI projects." These companies are all looking to deploy self-driving cars as part of a commercial ride-hailing service that would operate similarly to how Uber and Lyft do now.
  • In this report, Business Insider Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service, takes an in-depth look at the most expansive self-driving car tests taking place in the US, and offers insights on the leaders in the self-driving car race.

18 players to start or sit in fantasy football for Week 11

  • All evidence this season suggests the Falcons are a defense to target, but they also shut down Drew Brees and the Saints offense last week.
  • Hill got 20 carries last week against the Saints, and if he gets that volume again this week, he should end up with a big day.
  • The Eagles have allowed big days to pass-catching backs this year, meaning White could end up with several touches and perhaps another end zone trip this week.
  • As we warned with Kyle Allen, the Falcons defense is a bit of an unknown, but they didn't exactly shut down the Saints' passing game last week, as Michael Thomas and Jared Cook went for a combined 224 yards.
  • He did well last week in the absence of Brandin Cooks, going for seven catches and 95 yards, but he is yet to find the end zone this season.

This custom 3D-printed bicycle helmet is the future of saving skulls

  • After five years of research, Cook discovered that hexagonal cells performed far better under impact load than EPS foam when surrounding spherical objects, like your head.
  • In the case of helmets, manufacturers also need to cater for a range of sizes to fit varying head shapes, which would require more research, time, tooling, and testing to produce a workable product.
  • Throughout HEXRs development, the company tested various materials, manufacturing techniques, cell sizes, and layouts, but it was always based around 3D printing.
  • Eventually HEXR settled on a form of additive manufacturing which involves using heat, lasers, and polymer powder to sinter together and effectively “print” the helmet.
  • After hundreds of prototypes, and thousands of tests (over 3,200 in fact) HEXR found that a solid bioplastic polymer, called Polyamide 11, handles crash forces best and is easy to use in additive manufacturing.
