cmart-connecting-car-2
DFKI Robotics last week unveiled a prototype of the EO Smart Connecting Car 2. The tiny, two-seater electric vehicle operates much like a traditional car, but because each wheel is powered by its own motor, it can make extremely tight turns and even drive sideways. This capability could address issues that plague many big cities, notably traffic congestion and inadequate parking space. [More...]

Lisa Su, the talented new CEO for AMD, last week gave a pitch on the future to get people excited about where AMD is going. Based on the stock performance after her talk, she and her team knocked it out of the park.

virtual-reality
We're edging ever closer toward a virtual reality boom, with Oculus finally promising its Rift headset will arrive in 2016. Yet what if there were a way to make VR even more immersive? Feelreal has come up with two devices -- a virtual reality mask and a helmet -- that aim to draw users almost entirely into a fictional world. The mask is an add-on, compatible with major VR headsets. [More...]

apple-watch-review
If you're thinking about getting an Apple Watch and have been on the fence, this review is for you. Why? The Apple Watch, it turns out, is less about being the perfect smartwatch than about being a watch. For the fence sitters out there, these two questions are really where you should start: First, do you want a watch? Second, do you want a digital wearable device that can transform your life?

nintendo-splatoon-global-testfire-wii-u
Nintendo is introducing its own distinctive twist on the first-person shooter genre with Splatoon, a cartoon paintball melee. It's "a wonderful way to experience the thrill of a first-person shooter without some of the hardcore, violent elements," said game industry analyst Ted Pollack. "I think parents will like this, and it could possibly stimulate the sales of some console units." [More...]

twitter-anti-harassment-trolling-abuse
Twitter recently amended its rules in yet another attempt to crack down on the abuses perpetuated by online trolls, but the changes may do little to protect victims. Its latest move was an extension of its ban on threats of violence against others or the promotion of violence against others. The company decided to let its support team lock down abusive accounts for specific periods of time. [More...]

em-drive-electro-magnetic-ion-propulsion-spaceflight-nasa
It may not be warp drive, but EM drive is perhaps even more exciting, because it has a better chance of being science fact than fiction. EM drive technology theoretically could allow a trip to the moon in four hours, to Mars in 70 days, and to Alpha Centaurii, the star system nearest to our own, in roughly 130 years. It would take thousands of years using today's space travel technologies. [More...]

night-terrors-indiegogo-augmented-reality-immersive-gaming
Night Terrors could turn a walk through your own dark home into a terrifying experience, if the Indiegogo project succeeds at delivering what it promises -- the thrills and chills of immersing players in their own private horror movies. On the other hand, the biggest scares could come after hackers get their hands on all the minute details of players' residences stored in the cloud. [More...]

Drive-by attacks on the Internet are a particularly pernicious form of online threat, especially for individual Web surfers. On the corporate level, though, a company with good endpoint protection software can foil the malicious practice. A drive-by occurs when an infected website automatically downloads malware onto a Net traveler's computer. Endpoint solutions can thwart those kinds of attacks. [More...]

microsoft-hololens
Creating realistic virtual reality and building a virtual Tomorrowland are just fragments of the possibilities that Microsoft showcased at Build last week. I wonder how long it will be until someone fully renders something like Tomorrowland for the HoloLens, and how long after that before someone else builds one in the real world? Wouldn't that be amazing? [More...]

quirky-poppy-reserve-wine-rack
I'll admit I'm not the planet's most refined wine connoisseur, but I do enjoy a glass or two of red with my dinner. At the minute, the few bottles I have are vacuuming up space around my kitchen, so I could use a wall-mounted wine rack -- but what's the use of having a rack with no bottles once they're finished? Poppy Reserve could solve the problem of a barren wine rack. [More...]

An attack would involve specially crafting an SSL certificate to regenerate a bug. [More...]

An Apple Watch app could free an enterprise from user names, passwords, physical IDs and badges. "If you think about enterprise security and security in general, what you find is that for something to be more secure, it has to be less convenient," said MicroStrategy President Paul Zolfaghari. "It's the opposite with the Apple Watch. You get greater security with a higher level of convenience." [More...]
