A humanoid robotic diver has been created. "Measuring about 5-feet from head to 'tail,' the robot's stereoscopic 'eyes' allow the pilot to view deep into the ocean without entering the water. Its 'fins' provide ample storage space for batteries, computers, and the eight multi-directional thrusters that help keep the robot stable in turbulent waters. Also, unlike traditional ROV's, OceanOne's electronics are waterproofed with oil rather than being encased inside a rigid case. This simple design improvement prevents the electronics from buckling under the water pressure and enables the robot mermaid to reach depths of up to 2,000 meters without collapsing."

"Smart algorithms enable the mermaid robot to avoid collisions and, with some help from the pilot, even use its hands to 'swim' when stuck in a tight spot. If a crash is unavoidable, the humanoid robot can soften the impact by stretching out its arm. Since OceanOne is able to communicate with human divers through hand-gestures, it also makes a useful diving companion."
Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs), have been used to conduct undersea tasks, deemed unsafe for humans, for many years. But while they have been very successful at tackling projects like oil rig repairs, the vehicles lack the finesse and dexterity required to handle fragile missions like monitoring coral reefs. Their traditional boxy shape also makes it difficult for the robots to penetrate small areas without damaging the surrounding flora. Now t...

Meine Rede

Und ich werde weiterhin meinen Kindern erklären müssen, dass ihre Lehrer leider mehrheitlich einen sozialisationsbedingten digitalen Ignorationshintergrund haben, begleitet von mehr oder weniger affektgeladenen Aversionen gegenüber der digitalen Nutzungsnormalität. Die Kids verstehen das schon irgendwie, aber traurig finden sie es schon.

In US-Werbespots macht sich der Autokonzern über die lange Wartezeit für Tesla-Modelle lustig. Man solle gleich einen BMW fahren. Doch mit den Reaktionen im Netz hat das Unternehmen nicht gerechnet.

"...programming is slowly transitioning from a specialist skill to a general skill applicable in some way to the majority of professions..."
The Hackaball, a toy ball that is designed to teach kids the basics of programming, is ready to hit the market in March.

A few words rant about the QuadRooter / 900 million vulnerable Android devices scare bug currently making the rounds
If you read basically any news outlet today you might have heard of a supposedly horrible new bug (actually more than one) in Android threatening nearly a billion Android users. Sounds scary? Indeed! Are those bugs real? Sure! Are the reports way overblown? You can bet on that! See the thing here is: Those are run-of-the-mill privilege escalation bugs (so a normal user can get root access with them). Nasty little things for sure, but nothing that isn't found in any OS on pretty much a weekly basis, Google fixed a whole bunch of them in the August update for Android alone.
Those Stagefright comparisons everyone is making are especially clueless. What makes the Stagefright bugs so dangerous is that they are remotely exploitable. Those QuadRooter bugs? Not at all. So to exploit them an attacker would have to get the user to manually install a malicious app and disable all sorts of security layers / ignore warnings in the process of doing so. Meaning: If you only get your apps from the Play Store you are safe. And even if you sideload apps and at some point those bug are really exploited in the wild - which they are not right now - Google should be able to find and block them during install or later through "Verify Apps". (basically Google's security scanner that is available on all Android phones and which is enabled by default)
So why is everyone shouting so loudly about QuadRooter then you ask? Simple: Counter Point did a pretty good marketing job here. They produced an app, they worded their blog headline wisely and counted on no-one actually looking closer. They also made sure that their report came out before all of the mentioned bugs were fixed, so that each and every one device will show "vulnerable" when the users run their app to maximize the scare-factor. (two of the four bugs are to be fixed with Googles September update, the others have already been addressed with the July and August updates)
And you can't really blame them for that (well ok, maybe for the last part, that is pretty unprofessional), in the end this is how such companies work: They find bugs and try to market them as good as possible so that people fear-buy their products. The real problem here is that everyone is falling for it because it makes a nice, scary headline.
For completeness sake, here is Counter Point's orginal report:
http://blog.checkpoint.com/2016/08/07/quadrooter/
Edit A few extra words before anyone gets me wrong on this: Yes the lack of timely updates for each and every Android device is a real problem - I've said that time and time again. But that is not really the topic here. Cause those bugs are not any more scary that the dozens of similar (and worse) bugs that have been found in the last few months alone.
Serious security flaws that could give attackers complete access to a phone's data are found in software used on tens of millions of Android devices.
