The billion dollar widget steering the driverless car industry

No matter what it took, David Hall was going to kill that clown. He maneuvered Drillzilla for another ramming run. The robot was squat and heavy, with serrated blades coming off one end and a sharp drill whirling on the other. Across the arena, Conquering Clown awaited. It had the face of a goofy jokester, but its hands were a pair of smashing hammers and its body was equipped with a pair of circular saws. Drillzilla managed to flank the…

Via IndyStar: After burning off an angry donut and verbally expressing some frustration, Swinford did the unthinkable. He turned the Crazy Figure 8…

O’Reilly Media founder Tim O’Reilly says he’s trying to prevent a “disaster.” On the latest episode of Recode Decode, hosted by Kara Swisher, O’Reilly explained how the title of his new book, “WTF? What’s the Future and Why It’s Up to Us,” can be read in two ways. “‘WTF’ is an expression, either of amazement or dismay,” he said. “And technology can give us both; in fact, it often is. I’m saying, ‘What’s the future? It can be the WTF…

Man’s Kung Fu Slinky Tricks On Talent Show Program

Because Slinkies are making a comeback in a big way just like slap bracelets are (at least I hope so — I bought an 8′ x 12′ storage unit full of each to sell right before Christmas), this is a video from a Chinese talent show program of a guy pulling every move out of his bag of Slinky tricks. *shrug* Everybody needs a hobby. For some people it’s Slinkies, for other people it’s yo-yos or Rubik’s Cubes or domino…

Sonos Finally Squished Alexa Into a Speaker, But Maybe Just Buy a Dot

Sonos wouldn’t like it, but you could call its new smart speaker an “Echo.” A high-end, very nice-sounding, but flawed Amazon Echo—the kind someone who just got a promotion might buy themselves, because unlike the £50 Dot or new £100 Echo, this speaker will set you back £200. Sonos has talked up smart speakers for more than a year, but now that it’s finally releasing one, the Sonos One, the big debut feels anti-climactic. Yes, the One sounds and looks…

US v Microsoft: data privacy case heads to Supreme Court – General

Long-running case between Department of Justice and Microsoft is considered pivotal for data privacy rights. The American Supreme Court will hear a case between Microsoft and the US government about data privacy — but Microsoft would prefer if Congress would just write new laws. The long-running case started back in 2013, when Microsoft refused to hand over emails held in an Irish data center to US authorities who were investigating drug trafficking. A judge initially upheld the US warrant, but…

Big Blue back on the attack, analysts cautious

(Reuters) – IBM shares surged 5 percent on Wednesday after the world’s first big computing company beat expectations on third-quarter revenue and gave an outlook that hinted it was back on a growth track after six years in retreat.

But the results pushed Big Blue shares 4.7…

More songs’ emotional moods inverted with key changes / Boing Boing

The Week catches up on a few years’ worth of “minor to major” edits to well-known sad or dark songs, upsetting the mood to happy or humorous effect. Embedded here is The Godfather theme, which when modified sounds rather like the theme tune to the arcadian British show Last of the Summer Wine, about old Yorkshiremen enjoying their endless retirements. Someone should make that sound tragic and sinister instead, a sort of “Last of the Middlesborough Vodka.” Also: On Thursday…

This organic robot could save lives

Stanford University researchers created this vine-like robot that can move around by ‘growing’ and shrinking. Inspired by natural organisms like fungi, this polyethylene robot can grow up to 72 meters long and move at 35 km/h just by inflating and deflating its limbs. It can lift a 100 kg crate, crawl under small gaps, create a free-standing structure and navigate difficult spaces thanks to the camera on its arm/tentacle. Stanford researchers develop a new type of soft, growing robot on…

Vidéotron expands partnership with motion detection company Aerial

Quebecor-owned regional carrier Vidéotron has expanded its partnership with Aerial, a Montréal-based provider of wireless motion detection tools. Aerial’s motion detection technology relies on existing wireless signals to recognize people and animals, and gather data about their activities and locations. This works because Wi-Fi signals interact with walls, doors, objects and bodies. A person moving through this wireless mesh disrupts the signals in a unique way, giving them their own ‘signature,’ which the company uses to track them. The disruption in the wireless…
