Disney+ will fix The Simpsons’ joke-destroying 16:9 aspect ratio starting in 2020
With the launch of Disney+ this week, many fans were excited to have easy access to all 30 seasons of The Simpsons — only to find to their chagrin that their original 4:3 aspect ratio had been discarded for a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, cropping out many visual gags entirely. But now, Disney says that it will be fixing this in “early 2020” by making an additional version of the first 19 seasons in 4:3, the way they were intended to be viewed. Here’s Disney’s statement: “We presented “The Simpsons” in 16:9 aspect ratio at launch in order to guarantee visual quality and consistency across all 30 seasons. Over time, Disney+ will roll out new features and additional viewing options. As part of this, in early 2020, Disney+ will make the first 19 seasons (and some episodes from Season 20) of “The Simpsons” available in their original 4:3 aspect ratio, giving subscribers a choice of how they prefer to view the popular series.” To give you an idea of what you might be missing with the widescreen format, here’s an example: All the classic Simpsons episodes on Disney+ are in cropped widescreen format -- this means you miss out on tons of great visual jokes, like how Duff, Duff Lite and Duff Dry all come from the same tube. pic.twitter.com/cTy9adulFl— Tristan Cooper (@TristanACooper) November 12, 2019 Why 19 seasons, instead of all 30? From 2009 on, partway through The Simpsons’ 20th season, the show had already switched to the 16:9 aspect ratio — so those episodes should be fine already.

The ASMR hall of fame: The best, funniest, and weirdest videos in the history of 'brain tingles'
The first intentional ASMR videos started getting uploaded to YouTube about a decade ago, and the genre has since gone from an underground community of tingle-seekers to a mainstream facet of the platform. Along the way, ASMR creators developed popular themes and tropes in the community, with some building steady followings off old-school ASMR content and others going viral for strange, hilarious takes on the genre. Once ASMR blew up and became a household phrase, celebrities and companies started using the genre for advertisements, PR opportunities, and more.  This collection encompasses the most viral ASMR moments, the standout old-school videos, and those that started or popularized some of the most prominent ASMR trends.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. If you've only just recently heard of ASMR thanks to the viral memes and trending topics associated with the online community, you may be surprised to learn that the first ASMR YouTube videos popped up online a decade ago. In the ten years since, more and more people have come to identify with the phenomenon, which is short for "autonomous sensory meridian response." It's not a scientific term per say, but new research strives to understand what ASMR really does – and so far, results show it can help with mental and physical health.  Colloquially, ASMR is a feeling best described as "brain tingles," and most people realize they have it after experiencing a relaxing or even sleep-inducing feeling thanks to certain triggers that can occur unintentionally or intentionally, in the form of audio and videos distributed online.  One of the best places on the internet to observe the evolution of the ASMR community is the "r/asmr" subreddit, which started in February 2011. Since then, the genre has ballooned. Gibi ASMR, one of the top ASMR channels on YouTube, described the growth of the genre to Insider as three phases: the first ASMR videos, the beginning of a fully-fledged community, and the trend upward into a popular genre. This collection isn't definitive, but it does have examples from all three phases, as well as the most viral ASMR videos and the trends that would go on to define the genre.  The first ASMR star was Maria GentleWhispering. Youtube Embed: //www.youtube.com/embed/RVpfHgC3ye0 Width: 560px Height: 315px The reason ASMR exists in the capacity it does today is because of Gentle Whispering ASMR, who used to go by Maria GentleWhispering. Her "Oh such a good 3D-sound ASMR video" was the most-watched ASMR video for multiple years, and served as the unofficial introduction to the genre for a generation of ASMR listeners. She was one of the first people to do media interviews about ASMR, and helped explain the phenomenon to a new mainstream audience.  Heather Feather was another early ASMR creator who perfected different audio techniques. Youtube Embed: //www.youtube.com/embed/7GwtmUnecII Width: 560px Height: 315px After Gentle Whispering, Heather Feather was one of the giants of early ASMR. She developed a huge fanbase for the time, and her audio technology proficiency allowed her to push the boundaries of what ASMR could sound like with the help of professional tools.  Heather Feather also produced lengthy ASMR tracks so that listeners could plug in and fall asleep without having to switch from video to video. She also pioneered a lot of early triggers. Her most popular video is more than 4 hours and 30 minutes long, and includes more than 120 triggers with binaural sounds – meaning different microphones recorded sounds for each ear.  Creators experiment with different video techniques, too, like 360° video. Youtube Embed: //www.youtube.com/embed/Ny3nJXp_eZw Width: 560px Height: 315px Cosmic Tingles ASMR is one of the first ASMR creators to experiment with 360° video – a technique that will likely become more popular as VR headsets become more common. The idea of full immersion in ASMR is still being explored by creators. Replicating natural ASMR experiences is something a lot of different creators have pursued in different ways, including real-life ASMR pop-ups and spas. 360° video is one way creators can make the experience more life-like without being physically near the viewer.

With new APIs, Sony’s robot dog could be the smart home assistant you’ve always wanted
Image: Sony Sony says you can now use a web-based API to program its adorable Aibo robot dog to do new tricks — and you might even be able to make it your smart home’s best friend. With its new “aibo Developer Program,” Sony is inviting developers to make “services and applications” that can work with Aibo. I didn’t really understand what that meant until I saw this incredible concept video of what might be possible with the new APIs. Aibo helped monitor a microwave, turn on a robot vacuum, remind a child that she had left the fridge open, and... act as surveillance camera for the child’s mom? Who needs Alexa — a robot dog might be able to help you out around the house instead! To create simpler tasks, there’s “aibo Visual Programming,” which lets you use Scratch’s drag-and-drop block coding to teach Aibo what to do. Here’s an example of Aibo picking up a tissue, which I guess could come in handy when you have a cold and don’t want to clean up after yourself: Sony does note that you won’t be able to change Aibo’s “emotion, character or mood” through the API — all you can do is teach it new tricks. But Aibo seems pretty happy all the time anyway, so why would you want to change the mood of that very good doggo?? And if the first thing that came to your mind about coding new tricks for Aibo was, “I feel bad programming Aibo,” Sony addresses exactly that in an FAQ: Q : I feel bad programming aibo. A: When you execute the program, aibo has the freedom to decide which specific behavior to execute depending on his/her psychological state. The API respects aibo’s feeling so that you can enjoy programming while aibo stays true to himself/herself. The development tools are part of the new Version 2.50 software update to Aibo, which also lets you feed Aibo through the “My Aibo” app, train your Aibo to “be quiet,” or potty train your Aibo... somehow.

13 fantastic movies you probably didn't watch this year, but should
Lionsgate Many blockbuster hit movies and buzzworthy films premiered in 2019. But several fantastic movies fell through the cracks at the box office.  "Fast Color, "The Farewell, "Crawl," "Long Shot," "Booksmart," and "The Kid Who Would be King" are just a few of the movies Insider thinks you probably missed but should definitely watch. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. This year brought many popular, billion-dollar movies like "Avengers: Endgame," "Toy Story 4," "Captain Marvel," and more. But there were plenty of fantastic films that didn't seem to capture to cultural conversation. So we're here to round up the best movies of the year that you might not have seen, and make the case for watching them now.  Keep reading to see 13 great movies you might have missed this year. "The Kid Who Would Be King" is a great kid-friendly movie that cleverly retells the story of the Sword in the Stone. 20th Century Fox Release date: January 25, 2019 Synopsis: "A band of kids embark on an epic quest to thwart a medieval menace." Rotten Tomatoes score: 90% Why you should see it: The legend of King Arthur and his brave knights has been told and retold many times — but never like this. "The Kid Who Would Be King" takes the classic story and places it in modern times, with a young boy forced to go on an epic quest in the middle of 2019 England. This movie is funny, heartfelt, and has a few solid surprises built into its familiar framework. "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind" is a Netflix movie based on an inspirational true story. Ilze Kitshoff / Netflix Release date: March 1, 2019 Synopsis: "Against all the odds, a 13-year-old boy in Malawi invents an unconventional way to save his family and village from famine. Based on the true story of William Kamkwamba." Rotten Tomatoes score: 86% Why you should see it: Directed and cowritten by Oscar-nominated actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind" is one of the best Netflix original movies of the year. It's hard to skip Netflix movies, but this is one you should take the time to watch. Stream it on Netflix here. "Fast Color" is a unique superhero story about two women with supernatural abilities. Lionsgate Release date: April 16, 2019 Synopsis: "A woman is forced to go on the run when her superhuman abilities are discovered. Years after having abandoned her family, the only place she has left to hide is home." Rotten Tomatoes score: 82% Why you should see it: At a time when the superhero movie market is perhaps over-saturated, "Fast Color" stands out as a grounded and special take on the genre. Critics praised Gugu Mbatha-Raw, saying this is her best performance. Written and directed by Julia Hart, and following the story of two young women, this is exactly the kind of sci-fi/superhero story we need more of right now.
