The COVID-19 outbreak has turned motorsport virtual, get involved now!

With global motorsport being canceled for the foreseeable future, all eyes are turning to the virtual world and there's never been a better time to get into sim racing.

Like millions around the world, motorsport is a huge part of my life. And as with so many parts of daily life thanks to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, it's been completely shut down globally for what could be a long time. Formula 1, endurance racing, Moto GP, all the way down to small, local club series. Everything has stopped.

But, in light of no on-track action, many eyes have turned to the sim racing world. A whole new audience is being turned on to what many of us have known for some years: Sim racing is brilliant.

And now is a great time to get involved yourself.

What's actually happening right now

In light of the global situation right now, many in the motorsport community have turned to the virtual world. It's not limited to esports pros or influencers, though, real-life drivers are right in the mix.

In recent days, McLaren's F1 driver, Lando Norris, has been the top stream on Twitch on different days. The most recent, highest-profile was the first "Virtual GP" backed by Formula 1 and broadcast not only on sites like Twitch and YouTube but premium TV services like Sky Sports in the UK. Hundreds of thousands of people tuned in online alone.

Naturally, at least for now, it hasn't been entirely serious in a lot of cases, there's a lot of entertainment value though in seeing names like Lando Norris go up against golfer, Ian Poulter, and popular shed-based YouTuber, Jimmy Broadbent. F1 already has an official esports series, and hopefully, this newfound audience may translate across to that when it gets going again.

There's plenty to look out for away from F1 as well. Similarly celeb-packed events have been taking place in games like Raceroom, rFactor and iRacing, too alongside the more serious, pre-arranged races. Did you know, for example, that every year there are virtual versions of the Le Mans 24?

How you can get involved as a viewer

If all this sounds like fun and you're down to watch some virtual racing in lieu of the real deal, there's plenty of content out there. The easiest thing to do is head to Twitch and follow channels like iRacing and Raceroom as well as their related game categories on the site. It's also worth dropping a follow on Lando Norris because he's a regular streamer of iRacing even when his day job hasn't been canceled.

There's also an official Formula 1 channel, too, and there's always a bunch of people streaming F1 2019. Generally speaking, racing games have a bigger community on Twitch than Mixer, so it is worth looking there first. Don't forget to enable channel notifications as well if you want to know when they go live.

Also be sure to drop a follow on the related social media accounts for the games, as that's usually the first place you'll be able to hear about upcoming races. As the drought continues it's likely that there'll be more and more of this type of content to keep us entertained.

How you can get involved as a racer

Watching is fun, taking part is even better though. And the good news is that in many cases you won't have to fork out for a wheel and pedal setup to have some good virtual racing. Whether you play on console or PC, there are a lot of great games you can play with both a wheel or a controller.

If you're looking to perhaps get a bit more serious, then a wheel and pedal setup is definitely a sound investment. All of the top titles on both console and PC support wheel, and if you have a console (be that PS4 or Xbox One) then a bunch of the wheels for each also support PC.

You don't have to spend a fortune, either. There are some excellent wheels from Thrustmaster like the TMX which cost less than $200 and have everything you need to get going.

Google collects face data now. Here's what it means and how to opt out

Google's new Face Match technology isn't everywhere yet, but it's always looking. Find out what's happening with your face data and what you can do stop it.

Google's latest smart display brings with it a controversial new feature that's always watching. Face Match, introduced on the Google Nest Hub Max, uses the smart display's front-facing camera as a security feature and a way to participate in video calls. It also shows you your photos, texts, calendar details and so on when it recognizes your face.
This mode of facial recognition sounds simple enough at first. But the way companies like Google collect, store and process face data has become a top concern for privacy-minded consumers. Plenty of people want to know who has their personal information once it makes its way into the cloud.

Here's a look at how Google and other tech companies record, save, process and use facial recognition data collected by devices such as the Nest Hub Max, as well as s…

iPhone Feature Request: Copy ‘Skip Lock Screen’ feature from Google’s Pixel 4

Face Unlock on Google’s Pixel 4 is less secure than the iPhone’s Face ID, but it does have one feature I’d like to see Apple copy: Skip Lock Screen.

Copying that would be perfectly fair, as Google has recently confirmed that it will be copying at least part of Face ID’s Require Attention feature…

The Pixel 4 will copy Require AttentionLike Apple’s iPhone X, XS, and 11, Google’s new flagship Pixel 4 smartphone can unlock by recognizing your face. However, the company quickly came under fire when it was revealed that the device can be unlocked even when the owner is asleep, simply by someone else holding it up to their face.

With iPhones, there is a Requires Attention toggle. When this is on, your iPhone will only unlock if your eyes are open and you are actually looking at the screen. Google has now said that it plans to copy at least the first part of this requirement.

Google this evening confirmed to The Verge that it’s “been working on an option for users to require their eyes to be ope…
