Meet MASHBot, the touchscreen-tapping, Nintendo DS-playing robot

Ars Technica - January 15, 2019 - 6:30pm


Since making its public premiere at 2014’s Awesome Games Done Quick marathon, TASBot (the tool-assisted speedrun robot) has repeatedly amazed audiences by performing seemingly impossible in-game feats. Using nothing but pre-recorded electrical signals sent through a game console’s standard controller ports, TASBot has done everything from beating Super Mario Bros. 3 in under a second, to running Twitch chat through a standard SNES, to coding an SNES version of Super Mario Maker on the fly.

But no matter how amazing TASBot’s performances are, there’s still a group of naysayers out there that argues that the robot’s direct connection to the controller port makes the whole thing inauthentic, somehow. "Every single YouTube video I post, there's at least one guy calling us haxxors and saying we are filthy cheaters,” TASBot team manager Allan “DwangoAC” Cecil told Ars at the recent Awesome Games Done Quick charity marathon (AGDQ). “No matter how many times we explain that it's not a ROM hack, people assume that we've hacked the game, when we haven't, in the sense of changing its ROM."

So this year, in an effort to prove the doubters wrong, Cecil and the TASBot team set out to create “a replay device that’s the most insane thing we’ve ever done,” as Cecil put it on stage. Rather than just sending signals through the controller port, MASHBot (the Machine-Assisted Speedrun Hardware robot) can actually manipulate the controller itself (in this case, a Nintendo DS touchscreen), without any human intervention.

Ajit Pai gives carriers free pass on privacy violations during FCC shutdown

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai refused a Democratic lawmaker's request to immediately address a privacy scandal involving wireless carriers, saying that it can wait until after the government shutdown is over.

A Motherboard investigation published last week found that T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T are still selling their mobile customers' real-time location information to third-party data brokers, despite promises in June 2018 to stop the controversial practice.

House Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-N.J.) asked Pai for an "emergency briefing" to explain why the FCC "has yet to end wireless carriers' unauthorized disclosure of consumers' real-time location data," and for an update on "what actions the FCC has taken to address this issue to date."

Millions of customers will now pay more for Netflix—here’s how much

Another round of Netflix price hikes is upon us. According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Netflix will increase the prices of all of its subscription plans, effective immediately, for all new customers. Existing customers will see their rates increase over the next three months.

Netflix's most popular plan, which lets users stream HD content on two screens simultaneously, will now cost $13 per month. That's an 18-percent increase from its previous $11 monthly price. Netflix's premium plan, which includes HD and UHD streaming on up to four screens simultaneously, will now cost $16, up from $14 monthly. The most affordable Netflix option, the "basic" plan, increases by $1, from $8 per month to $9.

Netflix last increased its prices at the end of 2017, but only its standard and premium plans were affected. This time around, all three plans will cost more, resulting in a price hike that affects all US Netflix users. According to the report, the rate increase will allow Netflix "more flexibility to continue its aggressive spending on content."

Ford and VW are forming an alliance—here’s why it’s a smart move

We have seen a couple of big news days for two of the world's biggest automakers. On Monday, Ford used the North American International Auto Show in Detroit to announce the Shelby GT500, an uber-Mustang, as well as new Explorer crossovers. The same day, Volkswagen—one of the few German brands to attend Detroit this year—revealed the latest Passat sedan and an $800 million investment in its plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The US plant is to become VW's North American base for manufacturing electric vehicles, adding 1,000 new jobs with production of electric vehicles using the new MEB architecture beginning in 2022.

You'd think that either company would be relaxing at this point; after all, both just laid out some pretty strong plans to sell a lot of vehicles here in the US market. But throughout yesterday, automotive Twitter (yes, it's a thing) was a-buzz with news of something else, a joint press conference between the two rivals. On Tuesday morning we got our answer: a global alliance between Ford and Volkswagen, with each contributing one of its strengths in an area where the other has a weakness.

It's not a merger, and no shares are trading hands between the companies. But it will involve plenty of collaboration. First up? New commercial vans and medium-sized pickups for the global (read not-US) market. And that's medium-sized as determined by those markets, so we're talking Ranger-sized, not F-250 monsters. Ford will build pickup trucks to be badged by both automakers, starting in 2022. It will also develop a replacement for the Transit van, with VW taking responsibility for a new city van due in 2023.
