RightEye looks through that window to detect common but often subtle vision issues resulting from concussions and other brain troubles.Its quick, portable eye-tracking station can tell in minutes whether you should see a doctor — or look into becoming a pro ball player.It turns out there’s quite a lot you can tell from how someone’s eyes move.We may not notice it ourselves, but we all vary in how and how well we execute a number of basic tasks, from flicking our eyes back and forth to smoothly tracking a moving target.For healthy individuals, these variations fall within a safe range, just part of the ordinary differences between bodies.RightEye tracks these movements with a custom device that looks a bit like an all-in-one desktop; it uses a Tobii eye-tracking module built into a single-purpose computer loaded with a library of simple tests.

With the exception of anonymous cryptocurrencies, the lack of privacy measures on most leading public blockchain networks is a real cause for concern.With the use of blockchain explorers, developers and analysts can trace the origin of a transaction of these cryptocurrencies.Lead developer at Monero — the first multi-billion dollar trading platform in the cryptocurrency market — Riccardo Spagni, argued that privacy is crucial for a number of reasons.Spagni, who is also known as FluffyPony, emphasized that privacy is a legitimate issue for all users, not just the small minority who intend on utilizing confidential transactions to conduct criminal activities.You go to a local bitcoin exchange and next minute you’re held up at knifepoint.Anonymous Cryptocurrencies: Zcash, Dash, Monero, Verge

The 1902 oil painting, owned by the AGO in Toronto, Canada, depicts a crouching and cloaked woman, painted in white, blues, grays and greens.With knowledge of an underlying landscape revealed long ago by X-ray radiography at the AGO, researchers used non-invasive portable imaging techniques, including infrared reflectance hyperspectral imaging adapted by the National Gallery of Art and then an X-ray fluorescence imaging instrument developed at Northwestern, to detail buried images connected to other works by Picasso -- including a watercolor recently sold at auction -- as well as the presence of a landscape likely by another Barcelona painter underneath "La Miséreuse accroupie."Francesca Casadio, the Art Institute of Chicago's Grainger Executive Director of Conservation and Science and co-director of NU-ACCESS, will talk about the findings from an unprecedented study of five decades of Picasso's bronzes in the collection of the Musée national Picasso-Paris.]The key findings of the multidisciplinary international study include:Picasso painted over another painter's work after rotating it 90 degrees to the right, using some of the landscape forms in his own final composition of "La Miséreuse accroupie."X-ray radiography was the first non-invasive tool used to uncover hidden information in "La Miséreuse accroupie"; it revealed a horizontal landscape by a different Barcelona painter, whose identity remains unknown, under the visible surface of Picasso's painting.

This is especially true of its tech, an industry where Santiago’s innovations aren’t just making waves in South America, but are attracting some serious global attention.Santiago on an unusually smogless morning.Creative ideas are often inspired by local problems, and the Chilean capital isn’t without its flaws.This is largely caused by an excessive amount of car fumes which get trapped above the city, resulting in an almost permanent layer of smog.Poor air quality, coupled with limited green spaces and, at times, and an excessive amount of waste on the streets, seriously threatens living standards.Iván Páez Mora is Santiago-based developer who is working on his dream to create a city where his children can safely ride their bikes to kindergarten.With safety, more people will cycle.” This then drives a demand for better infrastructure, he explains, which encourages governments to invest in urban cycling as a viable form of transportation.

At the core of Facebook’s “well-being” problem is that its business is directly coupled with total time spent on its apps.That puts its plan to make using Facebook healthier at odds with its finances, restricting how far it’s willing to go to protect us from the harms of over use.Spending just 10 minutes passively consuming Facebook can make us feel worse.We fall into envy spirals.Facebook is showing fewer news articles, public posts, and viral videos while prioritizing what leads people to comment and interact with each other.That creates resistance to confronting people with how long they spend on its apps, reducing spammy reengagement notifications, or creating more powerful ‘do not disturb’ options.

Facebook Chief Security Officer Alex Stamos apologized for spam texts that were incorrectly sent to users who had activated two-factor authentication.The company is working on a fix, and you won’t receive non-security-related text messages if you never signed up for those notifications.But calling it a bug is a bit too easy — it’s a feature that was badly implemented as it’s clear that Facebook has been treating all phone numbers the same way.“It was not our intention to send non-security-related SMS notifications to these phone numbers, and I am sorry for any inconvenience these messages might have caused,” Stamos wrote.“We are working to ensure that people who sign up for two-factor authentication won’t receive non-security-related notifications from us unless they specifically choose to receive them, and the same will be true for those who signed up in the past.To reiterate, this was not an intentional decision; this was a bug.”

While Microsoft’s Cortana struggles to keep up with Amazon’s Alexa and Google Assistant in the growing smart assistant market, it’s still making effort to stay relevant.Its latest feature is integration with IFTTT, the platform that lets users connect hundreds of different apps and services, creating automated processes through the use of “triggers” and “actions.”With IFTTT, Cortana users can now ask the assistant to interact with many more third-party services, like asking their Samsung Robot vacuum to start cleaning, or recording their weight on Fitbit, for example.Along with creating their own “applets,” users can also browse IFTTT’s existing “recipes” and use them with their Cortana-enabled device.This means they don’t always have to wait for third-party services to officially add Cortana support, such as the different skills that come to Amazon’s Alexa.Another neat feature is that users can create their own custom phrases to have Cortana trigger actions with IFTTT.

It’s not a surprise since Xiaomi has notoriously copied the iPhone’s aesthetics in their UI for years now.

Apple’s freshly completed spaceship campus (in Cupertino, California) was the final project of Steve Jobs, and its construction came with the exacting demands that he was known for.Jobs wanted Apple’s employees to smoothly move through the headquarters without having to take a minute away from thinking about their work.The execution has reportedly gone so well that engineers are running right into the state-of-the-art glass that shapes the building.Housing around 13,000 employees, Apple Park, as the headquarters is known, is a futuristic feat of engineering that contains the world’s largest piece of curved glass.Apple CEO Tim Cook told 60 Minutes in 2015 “the quality and the size” of the 3,000 sheets of glass that have been used at the headquarters “are above all that has ever been accomplished.” And according to a new report from Bloomberg, the glass is so flawless and unobtrusive that employees keep walking into it.Surrounding the Cupertino, California-based building are 45-foot tall curved panels of safety glass.

Google wanted to better understand this, so it compiled search data from the US, Germany and Japan to see what was trending in the wheeled world.The results are a little surprising.First of all, we should cover how Google went about compiling this data since the idea of my automotive search history being reviewed by anyone or anything is mortifying.Jokes aside, Google looked at search trends (of course), then smoothed out the curve by accounting for seasonal variations in searches (snow tires in winter, convertibles in summer, etc.).Lastly -- and here is where it gets interesting -- Google went through YouTube and broke down what people were making videos about, the type of language they were using to talk about their subject matter and which brands were mentioned.Lastly, Google spoke to 1,000 living, flesh-and-blood human batteries… sorry, human beings, about how the automotive trends that it identified affected their lives.

For a period of 5 years, China continued to spy on all electronic communications at the African Union’s headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.The Chinese spy operation continued throughout this period without being detected until some network administrators at the AU’s headquarters discovered it in January 2017.This is according to an investigation conducted by Le Monde which has gone on to reveal how the Chinese, who donated and built the new AU headquarters in Adis Ababa, fitted the building with hidden microphones and transferred data every night from the AU’s data center to their servers in Shanghai.In January 2012, the new AU headquarters in Addis Ababa built and equipped by the Chinese government were opened.The $200 million 20-story tower along with other buildings in the complex was called “China’s gift to Africa” by the Chinese government, yet, it would later be revealed that it was a gift that would keep on giving.Almost exactly five years later after the new headquarters were opened, in January 2017, it has been revealed that the IT team at the AU headquarters discovered that their network was transmitting unusually large amounts of traffic after midnight, daily.

You’d be hard pressed to find anyone, critic or fan, who would say the live-action Transformers movies are anything close to “good,” but there’s no denying that the franchise has made Paramount several billions in profits since its debut in 2007.With this in mind, a new report ahead of the upcoming New York Toy Fair indicates that the movie studio is already at work at rebooting the Transformers movie series, with the planned sequel to Transformers: The Last Knight having been called off.The franchise’s first spin-off, Bumblebee: The Movie, is still scheduled for release in December, but beyond that Paramount has appointed a new team at the studio to “reset” the series, says a report from Transformer World.This would be the first shakeup to the ongoing series since early 2016, when Paramount revealed that a number of Transformers movies were in the works as part of a new Hasbro-Paramount movie universe.According to a preview event for the NY Toy Fair, the planned Transformers 6 movie is no longer included on the list of upcoming films from Hasbro-Paramount.There’s mention of Bumblebee in 2018 and a new G.I.

If you’re already spending the entire 9-to-5 workday gazing at the clock, you may as well invest in a timepiece worthy of prolonged ogling.Every 30 seconds, the current time slowly materializes on the Etch’s thermoelastic membrane.Seven-segment numerals, reminiscent of a classic LCD clock, sit beneath the slate-colored face.To display the time, the smooth, stretchy skin is pulled into the crevices needed to form the correct digits.The result looks like the numbers are carved into stone, an effect compounded by the concrete-like hue of the membrane.Moments later, the figures disappear—time, of course, is fleeting.
