Ett guldchip inplanterat i soldatens handled kan visa allt från blodvärden till syrenivå och dosen av sömn.Tekniken kommer underlätta fjärrstyrda operationer – som redan testas.Sedan USA inledde kriget mot terrorismen 2001 har över 42.000 amerikaner skadats i tjänst och 7.000 har dödats i strid.Armén har länge satsat stora resurser på att utveckla teknik som kan förbättra våden av skadade soldater – men även kring förebyggande vård, inte minst avseende mental hälsa.Nu presenteras det senaste initiativet – en sensor inuti kroppen.Vid en föreläsning i Arlington berättade armékirurgen Nadja West om hur viktigt implantatet kan bli i framtiden.
Google Lens is already fantastic for identifying objects in a still photo, but a new update is in the process of rolling out that will make it even smarter.First seen at Google IO 2018, the update brings Lens’ powers to the forefront of the camera app, introducing real-time object recognition, as well as smart copy selection.Simply put, your phone will soon be able to automatically recognize a whole lot of places and things without having to Google it.We’ve seen hints of brilliance from Lens before.It has been able to identify unique points of interest from a photo that we took in South Korea, as seen above, but the new update will let us see the result immediately without having to snap a photo.Google Pixel 2 users have been able to copy text from an image and paste it elsewhere, but from the look of photos from 9To5Google, this Google Lens update brings the almighty power of context, and actually knows what’s in the photo and can do things like execute a search or translate on-the-fly.

Blizzard presenterade idag en rad franschise-samarbeten gällande deras populära spel Overwatch.Bland annat kommer spelföretaget att ta fram LEGO-modeller av utvalda karaktärer och annat från Overwatch skriver man i ett pressmeddelande.Det finns i dagsläget inte så mycket uppgifter om vad i Overwatch som kommer att förevigas i LEGO och inte heller när man planerar att släppa LEGO:t i butik.Det enda som egentligen framgår är att det kommer att handla om LEGO-modeller i olika priskategorier.Förutom LEGO-samarbetet kommer Blizzard även att inleda ett samarbete med NERF, tillverkaren av leksaksvapen, samt den japanska klädkedjan Uniqlo.
Despite the British reputation for being overly polite, according to a new study, it seems we aren’t saying ‘thank you’ as often as one might think.While English speakers were most likely to utter the phrase, with Italians coming in a close second, expressions of gratitude were only recorded in 14.5% of conversation.A previous study on the impact of saying ‘thank you’ at work found there was a 50% increase in the amount of additional help being offered as a result of showing gratitude.In light of the latest study, we spoke to four people about the ‘thank yous’ that meant the world to them.In 2009, Manya von Wachenfelt Seisay was having lunch with her friend Nick who told her his student visa was set to expire the moment he graduated and he was going to have to leave the country.Manya was working on a project which involved researching opportunities for students and knew there were places available in the Master’s programme in his field of study.
A pop-up camera, no bezels to speak of around the screen, and an in-display fingerprint sensor that could recognise two fingers at the same time — just three of the reasons we were so excited to see the Vivo Apex concept phone at Mobile World Congress this year.However, while Vivo said we may see some of the technology from the phone in a future device, it was never certain the Apex itself would be released.The good news is, Vivo has decided to release the Apex on June 12.How similar will it be to the phone we saw at MWC?A teaser video and image show the phone in some detail, and it’s clear two of the three technologies that made the Apex standout will be in the final version.The bezel-less screen remains, as does the pop-up selfie camera; but it doesn’t appear the exact same in-display fingerprint sensor will make it.
Moore's Law, the drumbeat that for decades has marked progress in the chip industry, has been faltering of late.But Samsung has a few more generations of processor improvements planned, it detailed Tuesday at its Samsung Foundry Forum.A key part of chip progress is shrinking the components called transistors -- extraordinarily tiny electronic switches that process data so we have everything from clocks on microwave ovens to artificial intelligence algorithms running in your phone.For decades, it charted a doubling of transistors for a given chip area every two years, but it's been slowing down.Specifically, it's delivering chips this year made with a long-promised technology called extreme ultraviolet lithography, and it sees a path to new manufacturing processes that will quadruple the amount of electronic circuitry onto a chip.Chip feature sizes are measured in nanometers -- billionths of a meter.
Mercedes-AMG has taken the wraps off its latest performance four-door, the 2019 AMG E 53 Sedan, delivering more speed and smarter tech than the outgoing model.Replacing the old AMG E 43 Sedan, the new car packs a 3.0-liter in-line six cylinder turbocharged engine, using Mercedes’ EQ Boost technology, for 429 horsepower.Torque, meanwhile, hits 384 lb-ft. between 1,800 and 5,800 rpm.However, courtesy of the EQ Boost starter generator, the AMG E 53 Sedan can add a further 184 lb-ft. when required.It’ll also add 21 horsepower more.Top speed is now 130 mph, and the car will do 0-60 mph in an estimated 4.4 seconds.

It has been unusually quiet from LG's mobilavdelning the last time.At this year's mobilmässa MWC showed they were not even up, no real new top of the range.And all the competitors have started to deliver this year's flagship handsets.But now LG suddenly with a sequel in the G-series, namely the LG G7 ThinQ.the Extension in the name is LG's way to show that the product uses ”artificial intelligence”, whether it is white goods, consumer electronics or mobiles.of Course, if you have a long screen that goes almost completely out the edges, and on the back has dual cameras, which is the year melody from almost all manufacturers.

When John Sullivan worked at Facebook, Aleksandr Kogan created the infamous personality quiz app that, unbeknown to The Social Network , eventually funnelled data to Cambridge Analytica.And when Sullivan worked for Uber, he was fired for his part in paying off hackers to conceal a breach of 57 million users’ records.And now Sullivan has been hired by Cloudflare as its chief security officer.In a “Hello World” post titled “Why I'm Joining Cloudflare”, Sullivan wrote that he sees his new gig as offering a chance to chase “my passion for securing the whole Internet”.Sullivan wrote that he was privileged to have the opportunity to work at very large scale in his last two jobs, at Facebook and Ube, and feels that Cloudflare will offer him the chance to use that experience and further his ambition.While Sullivan’s CV contains the clangers mentioned above, his post contains some good sense.
Andrew Merry via Getty ImagesAs many as four million homes are needed to meet burgeoning demand, it was claimed, as new research reveals the “epic” scale of the housing crisis facing England.The estimate, calculated for the National Housing Federation and the charity Crisis, takes a comprehensive view of how many people do not have a place to call home.It counts people who are homeless, “boomerang” generation adults still living with their parents, couples who would otherwise have separated, and people in flatshares who would have moved out.David Orr, chief executive of the National Housing Federation, said: “This groundbreaking new research shows the epic scale of the housing crisis in England.“The shortfall of homes can’t be met overnight - instead, we need an urgent effort from the Government to meet this need, before it publishes its social housing green paper in the summer.”
Yet another update on that uber-popular headphone deal: It quickly sold out again, but the vendor is working to score some additional inventory for Cheapskate readers!It's a handy-dandy tool that reduces unwieldy keychains to slim, pocket-friendly carriers.The Tile, meanwhile, has earned legions of fans for helping locate stray keychains -- and using keychains to locate stray phones.Thankfully, for a limited time, Cheapskate readers can get a KeySmart Pro for $39.99 shipped.Just note that shipping may take 1-2 weeks.The KeySmart part is simple enough, especially for anyone already familiar with the product: You install your keys in the carrier, adding extensions (not included) if needed to accommodate extras.
EE and BT made a big announcement this morning, with a new 'hybrid' router than links up regular fibre-topic broadband with EE's 4G network.What that means is that this router can use both regular and mobile broadband options, to ensure that you're always getting the best and most stable connection.The point is to ensure a reliable connection and the fastest possible speeds, so if you have any issues with the broadband side of things you're able to automatically fall back on the 4G connection to minimise your browsing woes.While it's easy to sound sceptical of this given EE's fondness for strict data limits, it's been confirmed that the mobile connection is unlimited, so you shouldn't find yourself with a ridiculous bill at the end of the month if your broadband dies suddenly and you end up binge-watching the latest 4K Netflix series on a mobile connection.“The UK’s first truly hybrid home broadband combines BT’s superfast broadband network with EE’s 4G network to give customers consistent and reliably fast broadband speeds, even in areas with traditionally slow broadband speeds or at peak times.The hybrid technology ensures customers are always connected, as one technology will take over the other in the unlikely event of a fault.”
The audio equivalent of ‘the dress‘, a photo from 2015 that was perceived by some as showing a blue dress and by others a gold one, is now doing the rounds on the web, and it seems to be dividing the internet right down the middle.In case you’ve been offline for the past several hours or need a refresher, here it is again.Do you hear ‘Laurel’ or ‘Yanny?’— Cloe Feldman (@CloeCouture) May 15, 2018I’m on TeamYanny – for now.Some people report hearing both names at different times, likely owing to different environments and speakers.
