Images via University of Cambridge A little brown bird in sub-Saharan Africa known as the greater honeyguide is known to cooperate with humans to locate honey-rich bees nests.The bird calls out to honey hunters and then leads them to the nests.In a new paper published today in Science, South African researchers report that the birds seem to recognize and respond to human calls in turn.We ve known about this unique partnership for hundred of years, according to lead author Claire Spottiswoode of the University of Cambridge and the University of Cape Town.He found that humans could significantly increase their chances of finding bees nest if they followed the little brown birds.
You ve probably seen escape rooms advertised on TV or around your city.They re interactive experiences that force a group of people to work together, solve clues, and get out of a made up scenario.It s something you d expect to do on a Friday night, not on the floor of a convention.However, to promote X-Men: Apocalypse s Blu-ray release, Fox created the X-Men: Tomb of Apocalypse Experience for the floor of San Diego Comic-Con.And it s pretty fun.I don t want to give too many secrets away because if you are in town and want to try it, it s a cool activity and you get a free t-shirt.

There's a new consumer drone in town and it's got a real need for speed.With an average top speed of around 70 miles per hour the drone can reportedly fly at up to 85 mph in the right conditions , the Teal drone is nearly twice as fast as DJI's Phantom 4."This drone really started from my own love of flying," says Matus in an introductory video for the Teal drone.Matus' obsession with drones eventually led him to create a wish list of features he wanted in one.As his list expanded, he finally decided to just build his own dream drone.Though Matus has no formal background in electrical engineering or software development — he told Mashable he picked up a lot of his knowledge from the internet — he was heavily involved with the concept, design and engineering, which has expanded beyond him to Teal Drones, Inc., which now employs three full-timers, 12 full-time contractors and 30-40 people working on the engineering and design side.

Last night, we spent almost two hours walking around a nearby town ours is too small collecting Pokémon and visiting Pokéstops.My older kids, nearly 7 and 9, normally would complain during such a long journey, but were oddly occupied following the GPS-enabled map to yet another point of interest.Could Pokémon GO stop trying to send me to church, please?Maybe keeping my trainers up until 10 p.m. isn t the best parenting idea but we were having fun and it s summer.My twins tagged along in the stroller and once again the pair, with limited arguing, took turns capturing and spinning.Marshmallow was kicked out of it s gym and we re still too weak to take over any ourselves, but we did manage to hatch a Bulbasaur, which was pretty exciting.
There's a new bat in town, and it ain't your older brother's Batman.In development, and teased, for quite some time now, "BATMAN - The Telltale Series" is a video game that takes quite a different stab at the uber popular Dark Night.Because instead of mashing buttons to dish out pain, which you can't do anyway on mobile, you will instead be relying on your wits and decision making abilities to solve crime, beat the bad guys, and maybe catch a kitty by its tail in the process.Majority of the Batman games from the last years have mostly revolved the Dark Knight's martial prowess and butt kicking skills.Sure, there's some thinking involved and some emotional pull even, but let's not kid ourselves.Titles like the Arkham series are action games through and through.

This weekend, a girl was stabbed for playing Pokemon Go.In the small town of Redding California, three girls were in a park playing the game through their smartphones when they were set upon by three women and four men.While the wounds weren t life threatening, while trying to help her friend, Zacariya Bradshaw was clubbed in the neck with a pipe and mugged.Police in Northern Ireland had to explicitly tell players, But there s a Zubat in there is NOT an excuse for breaking into someone s house, or even wandering round their property.While the idea of a game that takes millions of people and forces them to go and walk around their neighborhoods is new, the real world impacts of gaming and technology are certainly not.The rise of physical gaming
Just don't go on Facebook, people.But the arsenal he showed - a mix of open source intelligence, custom tools, a knack for correlation and experience in how to siphon personal information - show how identity theft and worse are not hard to accomplish.And also how the most locked-down Facebook accounts leak like sieves.You can see they are Kanas plates because of the colour, the way they are shaped, and how many letters and numbers it has, Nixxer says.A well-loved playground in the house's back yard points to at least some young children in the home.There is a local school in town, and a local gridiron team, and that's information you could use to help craft phishing attacks, Nixxer says.
Cameras have become a critical aspect of smartphones for the past year or so, to the point that now almost every new flagship is waiting in line for a DxOMark verdict.While definitely not the only game in town, the name has become synonymous with digital camera benchmarks.Which is why Lenovo, Moto, and Verizon should count themselves fortunate that the site has just given the Moto Z Force Droid the second highest score so far, second only to the HTC 10 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and surpassing any of Apple's iPhones.On the one hand, it's not that surprising, as the Moto Z Force Droid is advertised to have one of the best camera technology and components in the smartphone industry.Aside from a high resolution 21 megapixel sensor, it boasts of Phase Detect AF, Laser assisted AF, Optical Image Stabilization, and Deep Trench Isolation DTI .Of course, that's the marketing spiel, and doesn't guarantee real world performance.
