The Most Affordable Solution to Find Your Lost Items with Track R

ioHave you ever lost your car on a parking lot? It happens. You park and go shopping. When you get back, you don’t have a clue where your car is. Then you start roaming around clicking on the panic button on your car keys so the alarm goes off. It can be frustrating, especially on a hot, sunny day.

No, you don’t need to install an expensive GPS system to keep track of your car. That’s way too expensive. You would need to pay a monthly subscription fee just to use it. Don’t we have enough bills to pay already?

But is there a way to track your vehicle without spending a fortune? Yes, now there is!

A California-based startup company was able to make this a reality. They created a tiny device that works with your smartphone, and it could be exactly what you’re looking for!

It’s called TrackR. It is a state-of-the-art tracking device the size of a quarter. It’s changing the way we keep track of the important things in our lives.

How Does it

New LG V20 smartphone

gjAfter numerous rumours, LG has officially announced its new LG V20 smartphone, the successor to the V10 and the first device to launch with Android Nougat.

The new phone features a metal body made of lightweight aluminium and a thin bezel. The company claims its MIL-STD 810G ‘drop protection’ means it can survive falls of up to 4 feet, while the Steady Record 2.0 analyses frames to minimise unintended hand movements while recording video. The LG V20 can also shoot in 4k and play back video at the same resolution.

For the screen, LG has gone with a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. Like the V10, the new phone will have a secondary screen that sits on top of the regular display, but this one has a bigger font size and higher contrast than previous models.

On the memory front, the LG V20 packs in 64GB onboard memory plus a microSD slot that can support cards up to 2TB. Its battery is 3200mAH, which is bigger than the iPhone 6S Plus and its 2750mAH

the Apple Watch Series 2

yiThe Series 2 looks identical to the first-generation wearable and the new features are relatively minor when compared to other similar devices on the market; a display that’s twice as bright as the Series 1, a dual-core processor, water resistance and a built-in GPS.

However, the Apple Watch didn’t become the second biggest selling watch brand (behind Rolex) in 2015 without having some redeeming features and if you’re looking to get a smartwatch for the first time, or are already a fan of the Apple Watch, the latter feature more than warrants an upgrade.

Built-in GPS is a feature that was noticeable in its absence on the first generation and adds real value to the wearable, even if it has been available on other devices for some time.

Runners can now use the Watch to more accurately track their route without having to take their phone with them – a major selling point for us – and these route details are easily synced with an iPhone the next time they’re paired.

When used with the Watch’s built-in accelerometer and

DURUS’ new feet

A bipedal robot can now put its best foot forward, stepping with a heel-toe motion that copies human locomotion more closely than flat-footed robot walkers can.

By rocking its “feet” forward from the heel and pushing off at the toe, the DURUS robot closely imitates the walking motion of people, making it more energy-efficient and better at navigating uneven terrain, according to Christian Hubicki, a postdoctoral fellow in robotics at the Georgia Institute of Technology and one of the researchers who helped DURUS find its footing.

Enhanced walking capabilities could help robots navigate environments that people move around in, and could improve the performance of bots created for disaster response, Hubicki told Live Science.

The humanoid robot DURUS was designed collaboratively by the research nonprofit SRI International and Georgia Tech’s Advanced Mechanical Bipedal Experimental Robotics (AMBER) Lab. An earlier DURUS design was modified to accommodate the new manner of walking, enabled by a novel mathematical algorithm that adjusts the robot’s momentum and balance, one step at a time.

Robots that walk on two legs typically have “feet” that are large and flat, to provide a more stable platform, Hubicki told Live

Lets You Feel in VR without Gloves from Project Oculus

The makers of the Oculus Rift, along with parent company Facebook, are working on a potential haptic add-on to their virtual reality headset. It’s called HapticWave, and it’s kind of like a omnidirectional virtual reality glove, without the glove. I swear — write about this stuff long enough and everything starts to sound like a Zen koan.

According to an interesting report over at MIT Technology Review, the HapticWave device consists of a circular metal plate set atop a ring of electromagnet actuators. Put your hand in the center of the disc and the device transmits vibrations that are synced up with what you’re seeing and hearing through the Oculus Rift headset.

Unlike existing haptic gloves or other tactile tech strategies, the electromagnetic actuator approach can simulate vibrations coming in from specific directions. So, for instance, you could feel the approach of a bouncing ball coming toward you on a tabletop.

Additional sensors in the disc detect the placement and movement of your hand, then send that info back to the actuators for further adjustment. The frequency of the vibrations can be shifted to suggest heavier or lighter virtual objects interacting in virtual space.

The Bios Incube for Breathe New Life

Instead of keeping a departed loved one’s ashes in an urn over the fireplace, why not breathe new life into them, in the form of a tree that can sit in your living room or outside on your porch? A new gadget helps you nurture life from ashes, and regardless of how green your thumbs are, it offers a way to keep loved ones close after they die.

The Bios Incube, created by the company Bios Urn, is an incubator that monitors and cultivates trees from human ashes in people’s homes. The company says the invention allows people to return the deceased to life through nature, creating a living reminder of that person.

“When someone dies, they physically die, but the people who are around the deceased person still remember,” said Roger Moliné, co-founder of Bios Urn.

The Bios Incube is a sleek, white plant pot that measures 2.5 feet (76 centimeters) tall and about 1 foot (33 cm) in diameter. The Bios Incube works with the Bios Urn, a biodegradable urn, and an accompanying mobile application. Although the Bios Urn has been available for more than a year, the Bios Incube is a new

New high-tech diving helmets

The U.S. Navy announced this month a “next-generation” and “futuristic” system: the Divers Augmented Vision Display (DAVD). Embedded directly inside a diving helmet, DAVD is a high-resolution, see-through heads-up display (HUD), meaning divers can see instrument readings or other data directly on the transparent display without having to lower their eyes.

“By building this HUD directly inside the dive helmet instead of attaching a display on the outside, it can provide a capability similar to something from an ‘Ironman’ movie,” Dennis Gallagher, underwater systems development project engineer at the Naval Surface Warfare Cente

Augmented-reality (AR) devices superimpose information on the world we see, such as how Google Glass works. The technology has existed for years in some form or another. For instance, the HUDs in fighter aircraft as far back as the ’90s were capable of showing information about the attitude, direction and speed of the planes.

For the U.S. Navy’s purposes, their augmented-reality helmet display will offer divers real-time information, ranging from diagrams to text messages. By having this operational data in real time, divers can work more effectively and stay safe on their missions, according to military.

Intelligent Russian Robot

A robot in Russia caused an unusual traffic jam last week after it “escaped” from a research lab, and now, the artificially intelligent bot is making headlines again after it reportedly tried to flee a second time, according to news reports.

Engineers at the Russian lab reprogrammed the intelligent machine, dubbed Promobot IR77, after last week’s incident, but the robot recently made a second escape attempt, The Mirror reported.

Last week, the robot made it approximately 160 feet (50 meters) to the street, before it lost power and “partially paralyzed” traffic.

Promobot, the company that designed the robot, announced the escapade in a blog post the next day.

The strange escape has drawn skepticism from some who think it was a promotional stunt, but regardless of whether the incident was planned, the designers seem to be capitalizing on all the attention. The company’s blog includes photographs of the robot from multiple angles as it obstructs traffic, and the robot’s escape came a week after Promobot announced plans to present the newest model in the company’s series, Promobot V3, in the fall.

The company said its engineers were testing a new positioning system that

Computers Can Sense Sarcasm

Humans pick up on sarcasm instinctively and usually do not need help figuring out if, say, a social media post has a mocking tone. Machines have a much tougher time with this because they are typically programmed to read text and assess images based strictly on what they see. So what’s the big deal? Nothing, unless computer scientists could help machines better understand wordplay used in social media and on the internet. And it looks like they may be on the verge of doing just that.

Just what you needed—a sarcasm-detection engine that helps marketers tell whether you were praising or mocking their product, and adjust their messages to sell you more stuff. Yet promoters say savvier computers could also help law enforcement agencies distinguish legitimate threats from those that exaggerate or poke fun at serious topics, especially in Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr posts that use images. It might even help automated customer service systems figure out that you’re upset, and route you to a real person or allow politicians to sense whether their messages are resonating with voters.

New Bendable Structures Could Make Origami Machines

Bendable 3D-printed structures that, when heated, quickly snap back to their original shapes could help make sophisticated drug-delivery devices or origami robots, researchers said.

Engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Singapore University of Technology and Design have devised a new fabrication process that uses ultraviolet (UV) light to print successive layers of polymers into 3D, Transformer-like structures that “remember” their shapes.

The creators call the process 4D printing, because the structures change over the fourth dimension — time — when subjected to a stimuli like heat. This is the first time 4D printing has been done on the submicrometer scale and with response times measured in tens of seconds rather than tens of minutes, the researchers said.

To demonstrate the power of the technique, the team printed a rubbery, claw-like gripper that could grasp and lift an object when heated. The researchers were able to use multiple materials and design actuators — components responsible for moving devices — at the scale of a human hair. This accomplishment means the technique could eventually allow the team to 3D print sophisticated, foldable, soft robots, the researchers said.

Flexiroam X launches alternative overseas data service

Flexiroam X launched its new service in Australia Wednesday that offers a reliable and relatively inexpensive way to use mobile data on overseas networks.

The service is powered by a microchip-embedded film that’s thinner than an A4 paper, the company’s CEO Jef told news.com.au. The chip lays atop a customer’s SIM card and once users have downloaded the app, they can use it to piggy back on foreign networks for their data needs without incurring any surprise costs.

Users can toggle between the foreign network and their regular SIM using the settings on their phone.

When users first sign up they can unlock free data by interacting with the app including providing your personal details. If you recommend it to a friend, you both receive 100 Mbs of free data.

Otherwise customers can pay $US20 ($27) for 1 GB of data which lasts for a year. Users also have to purchase a year subscription for $US9.99 ($13.60).

A single GB of data is by no means a huge amount of data but Mr Ong said the company’s research showed people on holiday tend to use their hotel internet and Wi-Fi hot spots for

The Cyborg Olympics

Prosthetic limbs have come a long way in recent years. But there are plenty of problems still to solve: knees are rarely motorised, making it difficult to climb stairs. Arm prostheses are often shunned because they don’t provide enough benefit.

“Most of the technology available today to assist patients is not satisfactory,” says Robert Riener, an academic at ETH University in Zurich who develops sensory-motor technology to help rehabilitate the disabled.

So Riener, 47, has created the Cybathlon. On October 8, the biannual competition will pit 80 teams from around the globe who develop assistive technologies against one another in a series of rigorous athletic challenges.

Events include tests of powered exoskeletons, arm and leg prostheses, powered-wheelchair races and a dash around an obstacle course for brain-computer interfaces. More than 6,000 people will watch the event at the SWISS Arena in Kloten, Switzerland; the others will be able to follow the contest on a livestream and on Swiss television.

British competitor Paul Moore, 53, is a former Paralympian with a spinal-cord injury; he will compete in the Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) bike race. FES bikes stimulate muscles using currents passing through electrodes to contract muscles, so enabling pedalling,

IBM Watson creates the first AI-made film trailer

The film studio 20th Century Fox has called in IBM Watson, the supercomputer, to create the trailer for its upcoming AI horror/thriller, Morgan. AI inception.

IBM Watson has done many things; beat human contestants in quiz shows, created bespoke recipes and described the contents of photos. Now it has become the first-ever AI to produce a film trailer for the new sci-fi film.

IBM researchers fed Watson more than 100 horror film trailers cut into separate moments and scenes. It performed a series of visual, sound and composition analyses on each scene to get an idea of how to create the dynamics of a trailer. Watson then processed 90 minutes of Morgan to find the right moments to include in the trailer.

Once the supercomputer finished processing Morgan, it isolated 10 scenes – a total of six minutes of video. Although a human editor was still needed to patch the scenes together to tell a coherent story, the AI shortened the process down to only 24 hours when it typically takes around 10

1. OSIRIS-REx begins its journey to send back samples from space

Nasa has successfully launched its OSIRIS-REx spacecraft on a mission to collect data and send back samples from the near-Earth asteroid Bennu. The launch took place at 00:05 BST this morning (19:05 local time) at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, where the asteroid sampling spacecraft set off aboard an Atlas V rocket, from which it successfully separated 55 minutes after launch. Next year, OSIRIS-REx will swing around the Earth to gain momentum for its journey to Bennu, where it will first orbit and survey the asteroid, before using a mechanical arm to collect samples from the rocky body, which it will send back to Earth.

Planting Microchips Under Employee’s skin

The technology has been around for some years now, but the use of RFID (radio-frequency identification) chips and other beneath-the-skin implants has only recently become more widespread.

A high-tech office complex in Sweden is now offering tenants’ staff the option of having a small RFID chip implanted in one’s wrist that allows certain functions in the building to be performed with a wave of the hand, such as opening doors and operating photocopiers.

Epicenter office block developers are in support of the implanting program, which is being made available through a Swedish bio-hacking group. The group promotes the use of bio-enhancement technology and predicts a future in which sophisticated implant systems will closely monitor a range of inputs from body sensors while interacting with the “internet of things.”

In other words, we will soon have the option of being physically connected to the Internet as well as to an increasingly widespread network of smart devices.

For many, the idea of having an implant containing personal information inserted under the skin is not a welcome option. Not only is there maybe something creepy about the whole idea to begin with, but the fact is that a lot of us feel our privacy and

Technology about Google to monitor your mental health

In recent days, Dr. Tom Insel, M.D., left his post as chief of the U.S. National Institute of Mental Health, a position that made him the nation’s top mental health physician. A neuroscientist and psychiatrist, Insel is a leading authority on both medicinal and public policies that are necessary to deal with mental problems. Although he’s leaving his government job at 64 years of age, he isn’t retiring; the UK Telegraph reports he’s going to work for Google.

Insel will be working for Google Life Sciences, one of the more unusual divisions of the tech and media behemoth. He is going to apply his expertise investigating how technology can be employed to help diagnose and treat mental health conditions, according to a blog post at the National Institutes of Health.

The company that has been busted repeatedly for fraud and other abusive practices now wants to get into the “business” of repairing minds. What could go wrong?

It was a goal of Adolf Hitler, and it is a term that today’s researchers don’t really like to use, but eugenics – the effort to scientifically create a sort of “master race” or super-human – still exists today and, as it turns out, Britain is taking the lead.

As reported by The Spectator, the idea of breeding the best with the best so as to weed out the inferior was an idea that was being entertained in England at the turn of the 20th century. A May 1912 edition of the magazine actually reported the following:

The only way of cutting off the constant stream of idiots and imbeciles and feeble-minded persons who help to fill our prisons and workhouses, reformatories, and asylums is to prevent those who are known to be mentally defective from producing offspring. Undoubtedly the best way of doing this is to place these defectives under control. Even if this were a hardship to the individual it would be necessary for the sake of protecting the race.

Hitler, of course, took this notion to the extreme, murdering millions he deemed inferior to the “Master Aryan Race” as an insurance policy against creating citizens who
