Technology can save lives, or how a 4 years old asked Siri for help

A cool story that came up on BBC a few days ago. A four years old boy noticed that his mother has lost consciousness (and no, we do not know the cause). Scared but surprisingly prudential boy unlocked his mum’s phone by putting her finger against the screen. When Siri, an AI assistant housed in iPhone smartphones, asked what it can do for him, boy asked it for help. Soon after, an emergency service came in and saved the woman.Mind the details here – little boy did not tell Siri to ”call 999” or to ”contact an emergency service”. Small, scared boy probably ...

Manufacturer of the We-Vibe sextoy has agreed to pay a large compensation

Standard Innovation is the producer of We-Vibe sextoys and mobile applications. A few months ago, a class action suit has been brought in action against the company by their product users, who believed that the company is stealing their personal data. Standard Innovation has decided to settle for an agreement, due to which it is obliged to pay a fine to every We-Vibe user – mere hundred dollars to everyone who used the We-Vibe vibrator, and a whooping ten thousand dollars to everyone who also used the reportedly data-stealing We-Connect app. The company also announced that it will no ...

Wolf of the BF: Commando – another classic Capcom game hits Android

Known in the US simply as Commando (no relations to the Schwarzenegger movie), this one is a no brainer. There is you, a Rambo-esque soldier capable of killing hundreds of enemy pixels with a rifle and batch of grenades, and there are the enemies. You move up, they move down, you have to shoot them down or they will shoot you down. As was the case with other modernized Capcom games released lately, this one has been optimized for mobile devices (specifically, Android phones). Other – few – changes include adding a leaderboard, so that you can compare your e-penis to those of ...

Superscreen, a $99, ten inches display for your phone

When you complain to people about how you like your smartphone, but wish it had a larger screen, most of them will tell you to get a tablet (well, I would tell you to stop crying and be happy with the First World privileges you have, but that’s me). Problem is, tablet isn’t your phone – it doesn’t have your phone’s apps, you can’t use it to call or message people, etcetera. Superscreen, a new kickstarter project, wants to solve this issue. Their device is basically a 10′ tablet that wirelessly syncs with your phone via an app; after the two are ...

British drone-cops, or Constable of the Future

British police plans to add drones to its list of equipment (or should I say, add to its ranks?). Among flyers’ duties will be taking photographs of crime scenes that are difficult to reach and taking part in searching for lost people. Project is backed up by the government. Police is already searching for ”drone management specialists” to take command of the machines. The idea is being tested since the end of 2015, so far with the DJI Inspire 1 drone models, but newer machines will most certainly be used when the unit actually becomes reality. ...

Super Mario Run runs into Android devices on March 23

Good for you, Mario fans! I personally don’t care at all, but still, good for you! It took Nintendo three months, but Super Mario Run, a very popular mobile runner, is finally coming to Android devices. Starting on March 23, the game will be downloadble from the Google Play Store (actually, you can already pre-register the game, which will download onto your phone and become available the very second it is officially released). The game’s price is $9.99, which is steep for a mobile device, but it has no, zero, zilch in-game transactions. Considering how the 390 thousand people ...

Are your hands getting cold while on the PC? Heatbuff will fix that

Starting today I like Danish people. Envavo IVS, a two-man startup company from Holland, is working on a special keyboard accessory that will help all tho have to work on their computers in cold. Two owners of the company (who are, by the way, gamers, so they understand the cold hands problem) have started working on Heatbuff in 2016, and are said to have made huge progress in this time. First prototype of the device was shown to the public in February, and it have garnered quite a lot of attention from possible publishers.Heatbuff creates heat using low frequency infrared waves with a ...

Supersonic – Google’s new messenger

And an unusual one, too. It is a text messenger, but one writes in it by dictating messages. I do not see the point (if a person is writing, it means that she/he is either busy or does not feel like talking, which is kind of counter-intuitive to talking to your phone), but maybe other people will like it more. What if you want to actually type the message? No can do; Supersonic does not have a keyboard. It does allow the user to change some of the words into emojiis, though. Cool? Messages sent with Supersonic disappear after a while.If you ask me, messanger sounds like a fancy, but only ...

Ghosts n Goblins on mobile, or another Capcom classic hits Android phones

Rejoice!, for Sir Arthur’s adventures have arrived on mobile phones! It’s time to kill some monsters while in your underwear (fans will understand). Capcom has started to release its old (really old) hits on Android devices. First was 1942, a WW2 shoot’em up; now, Ghosts’n’Goblins. GnG is a side-scrolling platformer in which the player takes the mantle of Sir Arthur, a knight on a quest to get rid of the evil plaguing the land. The game is famous for its high difficulty level, though Capcom offers (just as was the case with 1942) a casual mode for less suicidal ...
