p Wildlife may now be thriving in the Chernobyl exclusion zone, but it's not always been so scenic.After the 1986 nuclear reactor disaster, the area was completely deserted, leaving buildings empty and in disrepair.Now, a VR tour allows you to experience the before and after of the disaster.The Chernobyl VR Project, developed by Polish games company The Farm 51, is the "first ever virtual tour of Chernobyl and Pripyat intended for VR devices".The project was filmed using high-resolution stereoscopic cameras and includes shots from inside houses, amusement parks and offices.The Farm 51 team say the project is intended to "tell the story" of the victims of the disaster.
LONDON Reuters – Britain s ARM Holdings, the provider of technology for the iPhone, has bolstered its exposure to the developing market of embedded computer vision with the purchase of Apical for $350 million, it said on Wednesday.Embedded computer vision involves the use of digital processing and algorithms to interpret meaning from images or video – allowing devices to understand their environment through visual means.Cambridge-based ARM said the acquisition of Apical would accelerate its growth into new markets such as connected vehicles, robotics, security systems as well as industrial and retail applications.It said it would also extend ARM s product portfolio in existing markets such as smartphones and cameras.Computer vision is in the early stages of development and the world of devices powered by this exciting technology can only grow from here, said ARM Chief Executive Simon Segars.ARM said Apical s imaging products are used in more than 1.5 billion smartphones and approximately 300 million other consumer and industrial devices.Founded in 2002, Apical employs about 100 people, mainly at a research and development center in Loughborough, central England.Last month, ARM reported better-than-expected first quarter profit.Its shares have, however, fallen 11 percent this year on reports Apple has continued to reduce iPhone production.The stock closed on Tuesday at 928 pence, valuing the business at 13 billion pounds.Reporting by James Davey; Editing by Mark Potter
Scientists track British genetic adaptation over 2,000 yearsNew research by geneticists working with data from the UK10K Project to study the genomes of 10,000 Britons has for the first time detailed exactly how the genetic traits of the people of the British Isles have evolved over the past 2,000 years Nature .Lockheed Martin plans Mars orbital lab for 2028Later today, Lockheed Martin is set to unveil details about its planned Mars Base Camp: a laboratory that will house six astronauts in orbit about Mars, which the company hopes to have in place by 2028 Popular Science .The system uses cameras, acoustic and radio frequency sensors to monitor stadia and business premises that could be at risk of unwanted drone activity.The camera connector just fits on the right-hand side of the Zero's board in what Raspberry Pi founder Eben Upton calls "dumb luck."Produced by Bruno Wu and producer Larry Kasanoff's Threshold Global Studios, Kasanoff says that it's an ensemble piece with a Chinese cast; the first part of a trilogy that's "not at all what you think; it will be a cool surprise."Book now for WIRED MoneyWIRED Money showcases the innovative thinkers who are re-imagining the financial sector.
The net menace was the one-time world's biggest bot worming its way since 2008 through millions of machines across every country in the world, smashing through social networks including Facebook, Skype, and popular email services.It exploits a Windows vulnerability CVE-2008-4250 shuttered in a Microsoft critical update that year.Check Point says it registered the worm as the chief threat last month noting it was behind 17 percent of malware attacks.Their creation has remained in headlines since 2008 having infected a swath of cheap hard drives and USBs, and even police body-worn cameras in the United States.Check Point noted Conficker's dominance last December, and CERT UK recently said it found more than half a million infections in April .Its rootkit was thought to reside on more than a million machines and is still operating thanks to an incomplete command and control take down effort in 2013.
One97 Communications Ltd., the owner of an Indian online payment processor backed by Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. s finance arm, said funds at its disposal were enough to last five years, enabling it to build a business model that s predictable.We have enough money in the bank to last 21 quarters if we keep spending at the same rate as last year, Vijay Shekhar Sharma, chief executive officer of One97 that owns Paytm, said in an interview to Bloomberg TV in Hong Kong.One97, which was founded in 2000 by Sharma, doesn t plan to sell shares in an initial public offering for at least three years, Sharma said.The company has received funding from Intel Capital, private-equity firm SAIF Partners and Fitbit Inc.-backer Sapphire Ventures LLC.A Morgan Stanley fund marked down the value of its investment in Flipkart by more than 25 percent, paring the valuation to $11 billion in less than a year from as high as $15 billion.India s only food-tech unicorn, Gurgaon-based Zomato Media Pvt., saw its billion-dollar valuation slashed in half this month by analysts at HSBC Securities and Capital Markets India .Paytm started as a provider of value-added-services for mobile phones and later evolved into a marketing platform for consumer brands to reach customers via text messages and voice calls.The payment-processing system Paytm is the public face of One97.Its businesses include mobile-recharge services and an e-commerce platform where consumers can find goods including clothing and cameras.
In Japan, some people now can use their eyes to unlock their smartphones, rather than their fingers.If Delta ID has its way, smartphone users in the United States and other countries will soon have the same option.A startup based in Newark, California, Delta ID specializes in iris recognition technology.Government agencies such as those that oversee border control have been using iris recognition devices for years.And EyeLock, a New York-based startup, has developed a portable iris sensor targeted at consumers and small business that can be plugged into PCs.But Delta ID is pioneering the use of iris recognition in smartphones, where it could replace fingerprint sensors and passcodes.Iris detection systems are generally thought to be significantly more secure than those based on fingerprints, with far less chance of mistaken identity.But iris sensors can work even if a person is wearing dark sunglasses or is on the move.And Delta ID s system appears to work just as fast as the latest version fingerprint sensors.Because the hardware is almost identical to the cameras and flashes that phone manufacturers already put in their devices, it should also be relatively inexpensive for them to incorporate the ActiveIris system, he said.
Certainly, Stuff s overdraft is a lot more lonely than it ever was before.Like MP3 players, sat navs and compact cameras, it seems as though cash is the next concept on the smartphone's hit list.While you wait for them to arrive, the likes of Starbucks and Deliveroo will offer special deals Android Pay Day will kick off in June, with special offers and deals on the Tuesday before pay day to make that last week just a little bit less painful on the paycheque on the last Tuesday of every month to encourage people to try out Android Pay.Just as Apple s 'Find My iPhone' app allows you to remotely wipe your device if it's lost or been stolen, the same applies with Android Device Manager.Naturally, no banks or retailers have been confirmed for the service but it will likely support the same Magnetic Secure Transaction technology that's been used in its US incarnation.When you consider Android Pay s general ease of use and its slick support for multiple payments under £30, it should soon be a match for Apple Pay.
A large-scale analysis of body-camera usage among police officers in the US and the UK has produced some rather unexpected and counter-intuitive results, showing that body-worn cameras have a tendency to increase assaults on police.But — and this is a big 'but' — if officers switched their cameras on and off during their shift i.e.Trouble is, there s a surprising lack of data to support this claim.This would prove to be the difference that made the difference.And now that evidence exists showing that cameras actually increase risk of assaults against officers of the law, more attention should be paid to how these devices are implemented, say the researchers.The researchers say these findings are both preliminary and unexpected, and agree that further scrutiny is most certainly required.
Secondly, Assertive Display allows screens to adapt to changes in light, overcoming brightness limitations and reducing power consumption.Finally, Assertive Camera improves the performance of technology, with ARM in a statement citing "high dynamic range, noise reduction and colour management."These solutions rely on the creation of dedicated image computing solutions and Apical's technologies will play a crucial role in their delivery."Michael Tusch, CEO and founder of Apical said that his company's extensive research into human vision and visual processing had led the way with new imaging technologies."The products developed by Apical already enable cameras to understand their environment and to act on the most relevant information by employing intelligent processing," he said."These technologies will advance as part of ARM, driving value for its partners as they push deeper into markets where visual computing will deliver a transformation in device capabilities and the way humans interact with machines."
Holding up the joy end were two magnificent follies: a man managed to get stupid single-button-pressing game Flappy Bird to play on the screen of an e-cigarette, and someone else installed Windows 95 on an Apple Watch.But in that same month we also lost seminal British development studio Lionhead.Electronic Arts, another well-meaning but lethal behemoth, has acquired and inadvertently milked to death nearly a dozen smaller studios in the last two decades, from SimCity developer Maxis to Westwood, maker of the once-great Command & Conquer series.And so it went with Lionhead, whose focus shifted from enthusiastic creativity to churning out new iterations of Fable, the final version of which has now been canned along with the company that made it.It uses the touchscreen to excellent effect as you monitor a bank of CCTV cameras to defend your base against hordes of incoming robots.The other widely maligned multiplayer beta this month was Gears Of War 4, a similarly hoary old beast whose clunky controls, unbalanced weapons and muddy colour scheme left players hoping that its remaining six months of development will trigger a rescue operation.
It takes about four minutes for a Fujifilm Instax Mini shot to develop.I tested a mix of analog cameras, and even some digital printers that work with your smartphone, to find the best options for BBQ and bridal shower alike.Fujifilm s Instax Mini film is about the size of a credit card and costs around a dollar a shot, sold in 20-packs.I haven t felt so cool walking around with a gadget since I had the original iPhone.Even better, share the pairing code at your party, and anyone with the app can connect and print.The printer uses Zink—as in zero ink —paper.
On Wednesday the company announced its entry into the voice-activated virtual assistant race with Google Home, its answer to the Amazon Echo.Google Home promises to live alongside you wherever you reside, answering your questions, playing your music and reading your news, much like its popular rival.It ll also have Google search built in, which means it ll know a lot about you as soon as you sign in.According to its makers, Google Home is a sleek little device that will learn your music tastes, your commute and your daily plans — with your permission, of course, a spokesman said — and will use that information to tailor itself to your needs.Predators can already hack our baby monitors and computer cameras, and as Gizmodo reported this week, the FBI can neither confirm nor deny that it has wiretapped Amazon Echo devices.You can also turn off the Echo s microphone, though it s unclear whether even that could stop the National Security Agency from listening in.

An attempt to reduce the numbers of visitors smuggling drugs, mobile phones and USB sticks heaving with pornography into a prison has been roundly mocked, with Chelmsford Prison's installation of 7ft cardboard policemen in its car park branded an insult to the security staff who actually work there.The pretend cops were stuck to the walls in the car park in some sort of attempt to psychologically undermine the smuggling plans of visitors, visitors bosses presumably think stupid enough to see a flat cardboard thing and think it might actually be real.The car park is already fitted out with CCTV cameras to keep an eye on visitors walking funny because of all the slimline feature phones they've got shoved up their bottoms in freezer bags, so the 2D law enforcement officers are clearly quite redundant anyway.Francis Crook, from the Howard League for Penal Reform, has officially branded the poster police a bit silly too, explaining: "I think it's insulting to staff.Having cardboard cut-outs of coppers outside is insulting."Make sure to check out our @GizmodoUK Twitter feed, and our Facebook page.
Here s what we know... A new company, HMD Global Oy, has bought the rights to use the Nokia name.It s partnered with Foxconn – a huge Chinese company that manufactures the iPhone, among many other things – to develop, market and sell new Nokia products.We see this all the time – it s why you see cheap-as-chips Pioneer TVs that bear no resemblance to the brand s previous glories.Until proven otherwise, this deal has all the qualities of an opportunistic attempt to make some money out of a brand that has a history.The chances we ll see phones with classic Nokia features, such as PureView cameras, are slim to none.I ll be delighted if I m proved wrong, but I m not getting my hopes up.

Last year s model Doogee X5 is getting a minor facelift and upgrade with the coming Doogee X5 Max and because it just started selling outside of China, we have a few reminders about it.Main selling points of the X5 Max could be the big 4000 mAh battery, fingerprint scanner, equal back and rear 8 MPix cameras or the dual-ID system allowing logging up to two accounts simultaneously, for example Facebook or Twitter.The hardware inside is nothing special with MT6580, 1 GB and 8 GB of storage but at least the Android is in the latest 6.0 Marshmallow iteration.But the Doogee X5 Max could be competing with its price tag, because $64.99 is quite a low offer.For those interested check out the review video below or directly continue to the resellers 1, 2, 3 .
To learn more and subscribe, please click here.Two of the biggest names in the smart home market are joining forces.Smart home device manufacturer WeMo has announced that it is now taking part in the Works with Nest program, which means WeMo devices will now be able to work with the Nest thermostat, reports Tech Hive.The Belkin-owned WeMo creates several smart home devices such as switches, lights, cameras, and appliances.If the user is not home, then the thermostat places itself into "away" mode to save energy.With this new integration, WeMo devices in the smart home would also shut down whenever the Nest thermostat places itself into away mode, and then turn back on when the Nest thermostat senses that the user has returned home.Quirky's announcement that it was filing chapter 11 bankruptcy — and selling off its smart home business, Wink — highlights this well.At its current state, the smart home market is stuck in the 'chasm' of the technology adoption curve, in which it is struggling to surpass the early-adopter phase and move to the mass-market phase of adoption.There are many barriers preventing mass-market smart home adoption: high device prices, limited consumer demand and long device replacement cycles.Multiple smart home devices within a single home form the basis of a smart home ecosystem.Currently, the US smart home market as a whole is in the "chasm" of the tech adoption curve.Currently, there are many networks, standards, and devices being used to connect the smart home, creating interoperability problems and making it confusing for the consumer to set up and control multiple devices.But however you decide to acquire this report, you ve given yourself a powerful advantage in your understanding of the smart home market.
Honda is stepping up its self-driving game with a second-generation autonomous prototype that will be unleashed in California this year.The new test vehicle is much sleeker than the automated RLX unveiled last year, thanks to a lower-profile LiDAR sensor that replaces the spinning turret mounted to the roof of the previous car.Honda says the entire suite of sensors — which also includes radar, cameras, and GPS — is new, along with virtually everything else.The RLX also boasts higher-performance CPUs and GPUs, with improved cabling, heat management, and circuitry, according to Honda.Radar is good at detecting the relative speed and position of objects, while cameras are better at identifying objects based on size and shape, Honda notes.While Apple s car plans are still quite opaque, Honda says its test program is part of a plan to put self-driving technology into production by 2020.
