Amra har utvecklat ett sätt att använda magnetröntgen för att mäta kroppsfetter och säljer sina produkter direkt till sjukhusen.Tidigare i år meddelade bolaget att man haft planer på att stänga en större finansieringsrunda på 100 miljoner kronor.Nu står det klart att rundan är stängd – och att den blev något mindre än planerat.Linköpingsbolaget tar totalt in 80 miljoner kronor i riskkapital, rapporterar Di Digital.Enligt handlingar från Bolagsverket, som Breakit har tagit del av, framgår det att Industrifonden och läkemedelsgiganterna Pfeizer och Novo står bakom åtminstone 50 miljoner kronor av de investerade pengarna.Dessa ägare ger en fantastisk tyngd till Amra.

BT customers can now automatically redirect nuisance calls to a junk voicemail box.On average, the firm says its customers receive four nuisance calls every week.BT said network analysis experts based at its centre in Oswestry, Shropshire, would be monitoring call traffic to spot numbers responsible for huge volumes of nuisance calls.The system, BT said, is able to adapt quickly to scammers using ranges of numbers to quickly dodge traditional call blocking techniques.The service is similar to that launched by Vodafone in September 2016, which also uses data analysis to block both specific numbers and number ranges.Speaking at the launch of the service, a Vodafone spokesperson said the system would play a game of cat and mouse with criminals.

I am so sick of calling a business for support, only to wait on the phone FOREVER and then be transferred six times before finally reaching someone who can help me.It's even better when they say they can't help you and you just wasted all that time on the phone.Get a clue, massive companies:Bad customer service costs businesses $338 billion in revenue, every year, globally.I guess I find some solace in knowing they're losing huge amounts of money because of the way they treat me.Although I'd rather just have good customer service to begin with.

"You wrestle with a sense of frustration over what the looters accomplished, mainly before 1900," says Maria Nilsson.

When Google picked up Titan Aerospace in April 2014, the sky was, as they say, the limit.The high-flying drone producer seemingly had a lot to offer the tech giant, including the potential to expand Project Loon, its balloon-based plan to develop low-cost internet access to remote rural areas.The UAV maker, which was reportedly also being courted by Facebook around the same time, also had the potential to deliver high quality, real-time imagery to Google Maps and assist with disaster relief, the company said at the time.In early 2015, Google head Sundar Pichai announced that the company was set to begin its first test flights with Titan late that same year.The division has since moved around a bit under the Google/Alphabet umbrella, eventually winding up in the company s experimental X division, the department devoted to so-called moonshots.Now, as 9to5Google notes, the Titan division has been shut down by the company, with its employees being reassigned to different Alphabet teams, including Projects Loon and Wing, a team dedicated to cracking drone-based deliveries.

Earlier this month, Tesla held an investor event at its Gigafactory where invite-only guests were given the opportunity to tour the plant, sit down for a Q with Tesla CEO Elon Musk, and of course, get an up close and personal look at the company s highly anticipated Model 3.Originally spotted by Electreck, some folks who were lucky enough to attend have since posted never before seen photos of the Model 3 on their Instagram pages.While the photos don t necessarily reveal anything new, they re still interesting insofar as we haven t seen too many Model 3 sightings out in the wild over the past few months.Without question, the Model 3 launch — still slated for late 2017 — will be one of the more closely followed and talked about tech stories of the year.All the more intriguing is that there s still quite a bit we don t know about Tesla s highly anticipated mass market EV.For starters, Tesla s plan for the Model 3 dashboard remains murky at best.

Winter is here and though it hasn t overstayed its welcome just yet it will , it s still no fun to have to wear so many darn layers.It s much more fun to imagine the other better seasons.Beauty of Science made this very colourful video using footage taken from microscopes or macro shots—chemical reactions, paint experiments, etc.—to illustrate all the seasons we have on this planet.Autumn is easily the best season and yet it kind of gets jobbed in the video below.The other seasons get better represented with microscopic/macro footage, I guess.

Casinos have a new trick to make sure that you ll be back.GameCo, which creates video game gambling products for casinos, has released three machines based on the iconic 1991 action film Terminator 2: Judgment Day.GameCo s products aren t just slot machines themed around familiar movies.Rather, they are short games 45 seconds to 90 seconds long that give players a chance to win money.The new machines will show up in casinos sometime in early 2017.Many casinos attract an older crowd with familiar games like slots and blackjack.GameCo argues that it can bring younger people to gambling facilities by having experiences familiar to the shooting, puzzle, fighting, and racing games they play at home.GameCo machines are playable at Caesars Entertainment locations in Atlanta City, New Jersey.Having the Terminator 2 license can attract more players to its machines.

Until Intel took mostly everyone into a room at CES 2017 and told them to put on an Oculus Rift headset.The virtual reality keynote was an opportunity for Intel to showcase three areas they expect virtual reality to become increasingly prevalent: sports and live entertainment, tourism and, of course, video games.And that meant telling everyone - or at least the press and industry folk who lined up early enough to get inside the conference - to pop on the Oculus Rift in front of them.As far as Intel is concerned, VR can play a major factor in three things: travel, work and play.The travel pitch was pretty simple: imagine you could look and move around your next holiday spot, the hotel room you're going to book, the monument you'd like to go visit.The next part required the co-founder of Hype VR, Ted Schilowitz.
