Google’s DeepMind made an AI that can imagine the future

Google’s London-based AI outfit DeepMind has created two different types of AI that can use their ‘imagination’ to plan ahead and perform tasks with a higher success rate than AIs without imagination. Sorry if I made you click because you wanted AIs predicted flying cars. I promise this is cool too. In a post on…

A Yacht that Doesn't Get in the Way of Your Ocean Views

THE FUNNY THING about sitting in a yacht is you can't really see the water. I mean, you can see the water, technically, but it requires you to peer through windows that do little justice to the view. Shouldn't you be able to gaze out at the topaz ripples of the Mediterranean without rising from…

The LG Q8 is a repackaged V20 that can take the plunge

LG is launching a new phone, called the Q8, that has eerily similar features and specs to the company's V20($480.00 at T-Mobile USA), which came out last year. News of the Q8 appeared on LG's Italian site, which didn't mention a price or whether it would be available in the US or elsewhere, but did…

Autonomous driving will bring forced obsolescence to cars

The concept of built-in obsolescence should be familiar to anyone that has ever bought a piece of advanced consumer electronics. Back in the early 2000s, a brand new gaming PC would be out of date faster than its owner could notify all his or her friends of the acquisition. Over the past decade, smartphones have…

Google Glass reborn for the enterprise market

The original augmented reality spectacles are back. But this time, the business of Google Glass is business. After a rough consumer launch in 2013 that at times saw wearers of Google's innovative $1,500 wearable computer derided as "Glassholes," the company quietly spent the past few years partnering with software companies and around 50 businesses to build…

This transforming drone can fly like an airplane and spin like a seed

Small drones tend to come in two distinct varieties: the ones with wings, which are best for carrying loads over long distances; and the ones with rotors, which are more agile but less energy efficient. A few drone-makers have tried to combine both flight-modes into a single design, but none have taken the approach of…

Luma launches a home tech support service for $5 a month

The Luma was a compelling product when it was announced back in late-2015 — we even went so far as declaring the WiFi-extending home mesh system, “fun.” That descriptor doesn’t really apply the startup’s new offering, and indeed, Luma Guardian feels a bit out of left field for the networking hardware-maker.  The system is a…
