Driverless Taxis Debut On Singpaore Streets

The world’s first driverless taxi debuted Thursday in a limited public trial on the streets of Singapore. Developer nuTonomy invited a select group of people to download their app and ride for free in its “robo-taxi” in a western Singapore hi-tech business district, hoping to get feedback ahead of a planned dull launch of the service in 2018. “This is really a moment in history that’s going to change how cities are built, how we really look at our surroundings,”...

A New Zealand pizza chain wants to be the world’s first company to offer a commercial drone delivery service, a milestone in the quest to save time and money with an air-borne supply chain dispensing with people. Some of the world’s biggest companies including Amazon.com Inc and Google, or Alphabet Inc as it is known, have plans to make deliveries by drone and aviation authorities in the United States, Britain, Australia and New Zealand have been relaxing rules to allow air deliveries.

Alien Structure Continues To Mystify Astronomers

Alien Structure Continues To Mystify Astronomers

Nearly a year after first making headlines around the world, “Tabby’s star” is still guarding its secrets. In September 2015, a team led by Yale University astronomer Tabetha Boyajian announced that a star about 1,500 light-years from Earth called KIC 8462852 had dimmed oddly and dramatically several times over the past few years. These dimming events, which were detected by NASA’s planet-hunting Kepler space telescope, were far too substantial to be caused by an orbiting...

Is Proxima Centauri The Next Gateway?

Is Proxima Centauri The Next Gateway?

What if our planet becomes unlivable and our future selves decide to take to the stars in the hope of starting all over again. Where would we go? Mars could be a good choice as it’s the most habitable world beyond Earth in our solar system — though it would be a struggle. But say if we found a planet, not too dissimilar to Earth, orbiting a nearby star? Could that incentivize us to not only become an “interplanetary species” but also an interstellar one? Well, rumor has it that...

Get Ready To Pay Taxes For Using Ride-Hailing Apps In Massachusetts

Massachusetts will begin levying a 5-cent fee per trip on ride-hailing apps such as Uber and Lyft and spend the money on the traditional taxi industry, a subsidy that appears to be the first of its kind in the United States. Republican Governor Charlie Baker signed the nickel fee into law this month as part of a sweeping package of regulations for the industry. Ride services are not enthusiastic about the fee. “I don’t think we should be in the business of subsidizing potential competitors,”...

Are Black Holes Really Black?

Are Black Holes Really Black?

Black Hole Are black holes truly black? A new laboratory experiment points toward “no.” Using a simulated black hole made from soundwaves, scientists have observed a phenomenon known as Hawking radiation: a faint energy emission that, in theory, is created right at the edge of a black hole’s event horizon, or the point beyond which even light cannot escape.  If Hawking radiation comes from astrophysical black holes (not just those created in a lab), it would mean these objects...

The strike force will report to the FCC by...

Are Power Outlets A Security Risk?

August 22, 2016 by   | Category: Around The Net

It if we did not have enough to worry about, it seems that, thanks to the internet of things, we have to be concerned about the security of our powerpoints. Security researchers from Bitdefender have found an IoT smart electrical socket which leaks your Wi-Fi password, your email credentials and is so poorly coded that attackers can use it to hijack the device and use it for DDoS attacks. In the good old days all the power point could do was turn electrical equipment on and off. Bitdefender didn’t...

Did Meteorites Destroys Life On Mars?

The sites of meteorite impacts on Mars are often considered to be good places to look for life. After all, it’s most likely that if any trace of life (past or present) ever took hold on the Red Planet, it would most likely be preserved under the bedrock of Mars’ harsh surface. Should there be a recent impact, could we search the debris to seek-out this recently excavated pristine rock for life? Alas, in new research, this kind of impact crater search could be a fool’s errand; the...

Apple Finally Jumps On The AR Bandwagon

Apple is trying to convince the world it is “coming up with something new” by talking a lot about Artificial Reality. It is a fairly logical development, the company has operated a reality distortion field to create an alternative universe where its products are new and revolutionary and light years ahead of everyone else’s. It will be curious to see how Apple integrates its reality with the real world, given that it is having a problem with that. Apple CEO Tim Cook has been doing his best...

Alien Mega Structure Becomes More Complex

You’re probably all too familiar with the story of KIC 8462852, a star that’s been the focus of much speculation and excitement over the past few months. KIC 8462852 was observed by NASA’s Kepler mission and has become infamous for its bizarre and unprecedented transit signal that was flagged by citizen scientists. Now new research of precision Kepler observations has shown that the overall brightness of the star — unofficially named “Tabby’s Star” after astronomer...

U.S. Water Technology Company Xylem To Acquire Sensus

U.S. water technology company Xylem Inc announced that it will acquire Sensus USA Inc, a provider of advanced metering technologies to utilities, for around $1.7 billion in cash. The acquisition would make Xylem a major player in the market for smart meters, at a time when regulatory requirements and a drive for savings are pushing both companies and consumers to control their water and energy consumption more tightly. Xylem will finance the deal with about $400 million of its non-U.S. cash, new...
