If you’ve suffered the throes of chronic insomnia, you’ll do almost anything to fall asleep.Pills, guided meditation apps, vigorous exercise, melatonin, screen dimmers, aromatherapy diffusers, sleep tracking via fitness tracker, smart beds, bedtime calculators—at some point or another, I’ve tried them all and probably spent an absurd amount of money in the pursuit of a restful night.: A robot that mimics breathing to help you fall asleep faster.Like: Doesn't fart in your face as a pet would.I first encountered Somnox at a consumer electronics showcase about a year ago.To my sleep-deprived brain, Somnox’s in-and-out breathing was as creepy as it was intriguing, and I handed my card over to a Somnox rep with a beleaguered, “Let me know when this thing is ready for reviews.”
Over the last two months, the Mars 2020 spacecraft has been subjected to a number of extreme tests designed to ensure it can withstand an intense rocket launch and the extremes of space.NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory has put the futuristic craft through "acoustic and thermal vacuum" testing -- and it has passed with flying colors.The test involve blasting the spacecraft with sound levels as high as 150 decibels -- the type of levels you'd hear standing next to a jet at take-off -- to replicate the environment of a launch, according to Andy Rose, manager of JPL's environmental test facilities.After the sound blast tests were performed six times, NASA put the Mars 2020 rover through a brutal test that replicates the vacuum of space."We pump out the atmosphere, then chill parts of it and cook others while testing the performance of the entire spacecraft."The facility doesn't quite achieve a full vacuum but it does get really, really cold.

Sometimes it’s hard to describe what a weird day is for me anymore.Shouting encouragement to my first robot vacuum named after a Jetsons character?Playing a demon-killing badass in a sequel game I’ve waited over a decade for?But taste-testing a hot sauce made by an erotic game-hosting website that’s actually called “Hentai Hot Sauce?” This is off the scale even for me.Still, I’m not one to let a bizarre opportunity like this slip me by, and for some reason TNW agreed to let me tell you guys how it is.Hentai Hot Sauce comes from the people of Nutaku, a sort of Steam for porn games.

Ford partnered with Agility Robotics to create a two-legged delivery robot called Digit.According to Ford, Digit can carry up to 40 pounds, navigate stairs, and go around unexpected obstacles.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.Ford is working with Agility Robotics to create autonomous deliveries.Digit was designed to look like a human and walk like one, too.Jonathan Hurst: Our goal with Digit is to have a robot as a mobility platform that can be in human spaces, go where people go, and work with people.
Just over a month after a pack of SpotMini robot dogs pulled a huge truck, researchers with the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) tested the strength of a different robot dog, the HyQReal, at the Genova Airport in Italy on May 15.The HyQ pulled a 3-ton Piaggio P180 Avanti passenger airplane almost 33 feet, according to a release from the researchers.The dozens of videos of kicking the robot dogs over and watching them get back up now seem like a terrible idea."Pulling a plane allowed us to demonstrate the robot's strength, power-autonomy and the optimized design," said Claudio Semini, project leader at IIT's Dynamic Legged Systems lab, said in the release."We wanted to achieve something that has never been done before, and we succeeded last week."Researchers at the institute hope to design the HyQ to be more durable so it can be used in multiple situations like disaster response, agriculture, decommissioning and inspection.
People instinctively know how to work together when it comes time to lift something that takes two people.People coordinate their motions and work to be sure that each side of whatever is being carried is at the same height.While tasks like that are natural for a human, for robots, it’s not natural at all.Robots have to be trained to work well with a human and usually that means teaching the robot voice commands similar to how a voice assistant like Siri works.MIT researchers have developed a robot that can collaborate with humans without needing to use spoken commands.The robotic system can coordinate motions by monitoring their muscle movements.

Ford has developed a robot to help deliver parcels.Called Digit, the robot is two-legged machine which looks similar to Boston Dynamics' creations, and was built in collaboration with Agility Robotics.The aim of Digit is to complete the last leg of automated delivery, with the robot working in conjunction with a self-driving vehicle – literally carrying parcels to your front door, fulfilling what Ford refers to as the "final steps of a self-driving delivery".It's a more advanced solution than Amazon's miniature delivery trucks, and more versatile than drone drops.Digit is capable of carrying up 18kg (40lb) and is kitted out with a series of stereo cameras to help it interpret its environment, and a LIDAR system to map terrain.The robot is packed with sensors to enable it to make sense of its surroundings, but there is also a two-way communication system between Digit and the driverless delivery vehicle.
Photo by Dan Seifert / The VergeIn a week of eyebrow-raising headlines surrounding the US-China trade spat, this latest report from Bloomberg still manages to stand out: Amazon is said to be working on a wrist-worn, voice-activated device that’s supposed to be able to read human emotions.This would be a rather novel health and wellness gadget, of the sort we’re more used to seeing feature in tenuous crowdfunding campaigns instead of from one of the world’s biggest tech companies.Bloomberg has reviewed internal Amazon documents, which reportedly show the Alexa voice software team and Amazon’s Lab126 hardware division are collaborating on the upcoming wearable.Lab126 has already been responsible for the Kindle, the Fire Phone, and the Echo speaker that first introduced Alexa to the world, and a report last year suggested the group is also developing a home robot.The unifying thread to all of Amazon’s hardware efforts right now is to build out an ecosystem of Alexa-capable devices, with the rumored robot making Alexa more mobile and the alleged emotion-sensing wearable giving the voice assistant access to a whole new dimension of user awareness.

Here goes an interesting fact about smartphones, out of the total population of the world which is roughly 7 billion, 3.7 billion own mobile phones. The fact seems much more intriguing when you realise that only 3.4 billion own toothbrushes.Smartphone, which is basically a handheld personal computer that comes with a mobile operating system, works nothing less than life blood for today’s generation. An average user touches his smartphone over 2600 times a day which for a heavy user, goes up to 5400.Amazing! With such heavy usage, smartphones are bound to touch each and every aspect of human lives from the moment we wake up to the moment we go to sleep. Apart from this, there is simply no field left that has not been revolutionized by this new age technology.Call center services which are used for receiving or transmitting requests via telephone, are no exception. Below are few points to help us understand how smartphones have changed the way call centers work worldwide.Mobile-friendlyGone are the days customers have to use bulky phone directories for contact info and search for landline phones to avail customer care services. With smartphones, people can directly find the solution to their query on their own via internet, or if not, can search for call center details and contact them without wasting any time.Security issuesCalling customer care for spoofing or fraud purposes has been going on for ages since calls via public booth can never be tracked back to reveal the caller’s identity.With the coming of smartphones, things have improved drastically, thanks to its Automatic Number Identification which can uniquely identify any individual, thus forestalling such swindlers.Multi-taskingTo be frank, Customers aren’t much thrilled about talking to customer service agents as it can and most times it is a pretty boring stuff, more so, they cannot use the guidance provided by call center reps in real time if the need arises.With smartphones, along with talking to the agents, customers can use their mobiles for other purposes or simply to verify online about the solution the agents are providing in real time.Multi-channelAnother benefit for smartphone is its ability to provide multiple channels to its customers for communication purposes, be it calling, text/SMS or online chatting.It is more of a two-way process which allows both agents and customers to share information, photos, videos etc to each other for better understanding and solution of the problems.Video ChatVideo chatting is another one of the revolutionary service facilitated by the advancement of smartphone technology. Video calling provides a humanly touch to the otherwise disappointing experience of interacting with a robot-like voice while talking to call center agents.It further leads to a strong brand-consumer relationship by providing a more personal experience for its customers.ConclusionSmartphones are the evolution of basic landline phones just as call centers are the evolution of earlier telemarketing services, and both are nothing less than a necessity of today. Combining both have transformed drastically the experience of communication for both companies and its consumers.

Now you can snag one for yourself, as we’ve just been alerted to a special sale on last year’s Botvac D6 Connected model at Best Buy, saving you $330 off the retail price through 10 p.m. Pacific Time on Monday.But the Botvac D6 is no slacker: we reviewed it last year and found its cleaning capabilities to be superior to most robot vacuums on the market right now.Other features include Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant support, and we were able to clean fairly large spaces without the need to empty after each use.In fact, we were going three or four days between emptying — and that was with us operating the vacuum on a daily basis.Of course, the app tells you when the D6 needs its dustbin emptied, so no need to check.The app also lets you map the interior of your home in order to keep the bot out of areas you don’t want it to go.

The WWDC 2019 presentation takes place at 10 a.m. PT on Monday, June 3 in San Jose, California.The weeklong conference will likely show off upcoming versions of iOS 13 and the latest MacOS as well as reveal new hardware.If previous years are any indication, the WWDC invitation usually hints at a theme or initiative Apple is likely to unveil.This year, there are five illustrated drawings each of an Animoji character: monkey, robot, skull, alien and unicorn.The artwork shows each character having their Animoji mind being literally blown with a puff of smoke projecting emojis, coding symbols and icons for things like Swift and Metal.In previous years, Apple has been criticized for its seeming lack of support of creative professionals.

When Google unveiled Duplex last year, it was touted as a booking system that uses eerily human-sounding artificial intelligence to make reservations.Turns out that about 25% of the time, it actually a human -- and not a robot -- placing the call to book an appointment, according to a report Wednesday from the New York Times.And about 15% of the time, a call is started by the AI software and is handed off to a human in a call center to complete the booking.Google didn't respond to a request for comment.When the service works correctly, a lifelike sounding bot makes restaurant and hair appointments for people who use the Google Assistant, the search giant's digital assistant software.Duplex uses verbal tics like "uh" and "um," elongates certain words, and moves its voice up and down to mimic human speech.
Earlier this month, I shadowed several restaurants throughout New York and talked to restaurant employees across the US to see how they’ve received Google Duplex, the AI that makes life-like calls for reservations on your behalf.Most agreed that the AI sounded unmistakably human — and according to Google’s response to reporting by The New York Times, there’s a 25 percent chance that they were.Google says that a quarter of Duplex calls start with human callers, and 15 percent start with the AI and are later intervened by a person from the Duplex call center.The company told The New York Times that it uses a variety of signals to decide whether a call should be placed by a human or a robot, “like if the company is unsure of whether the business takes reservations, or if the user of the assistant might be a spammer.”Google Duplex works by first attempting to make reservations with restaurants that offer online booking tools through platforms like OpenTable, Resy, and Yelp.If those options are not available, then it will deploy the voice-calling AI.

If you’ve always dreamed of having a low-maintenance, vaguely dog-shaped companion, well, you’re in luck.A group of undergraduate and graduate students at Stanford University have just unveiled Doggo, a relatively cheap, light, four-legged robot with the bouncing ability of a typical toy breed.Best of all, they’ve made the instructions to building your very own Doggo fully and freely available to the public.The robot was created by members of the Stanford Robotics club, specifically its Extreme Mobility team.According to its creators, the roughly 10-pound Doggo can dance, navigate uneven terrain, and even jump up to 3.5 feet off the ground.Its vertical agility (a measure of its maximum height times the speed it takes to reach it) is especially impressive: It more than matches the jumping skills of real-life animals and is apparently 22 per cent greater than the current record held by similar robots.
The US has joined China, the European Union, and South Korea in ruling that Qualcomm violated antitrust laws.Qualcomm is the largest maker of modem chips for connecting smartphones to wireless networks.Its customers, including Apple and Samsung, complain that the company uses unfair practices, such as threatening to withhold supplies of chips, to force companies to agree to excessive licensing fees for its technology.Apple and Qualcomm settled their own separate, complicated legal battle last month.The Federal Trade Commission sued Qualcomm in 2017, alleging that the company drove up smartphone prices by overcharging customers and unfairly blocking competitors from the modem chip market, but the case didn't make it to trial until January.Late Tuesday night, US District Judge Lucy Koh ruled in the FTC's favor and ordered Qualcomm to negotiate or renegotiate its modem chip licensing terms with its customers, barred the company from entering into exclusivity deals that prevent customers from buying modem chips from other companies, and required the company to submit to monitoring by the FTC for the next seven years.
ITHACA, N.Y. - A new social robot that can be customized with handcrafted material, such as wood and wool, brings simplicity and fun to home robotics -- and will soon be used to help teach math to fourth graders.Guy Hoffman, assistant professor in the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University, envisioned robots built from warmer, homier materials that could be customized by their owners, so each would be unique.These ideas led Hoffman to create Blossom - a simple, expressive, inexpensive robot platform that could be made from a kit and creatively outfitted with handcrafted materials."We wanted to empower people to build their own robot, but without sacrificing how expressive it is," said Hoffman, senior author of "Blossom: A Handcrafted Open-Source Robot," published in the Association for Computing Machinery Transactions on Human-Robot Interaction.Blossom's mechanical design - developed with Michael Suguitan, a doctoral student in Hoffman's lab and first author of the paper - is centered on a floating "head" platform using strings and cables for movement, making its gestures more flexible and organic than those of a robot composed of rigid parts.Because of the ease of interacting with the robot and the hands-on experience of helping to build it, it could help teach children about robotics.
World Champion thrower Logan Broadbent says it's pretty simple."Basically the best way to think of it is that each wing is an airplane wing," he says."The top side is curved and the bottom side is relatively flat and that shape allows the boomerang to generate lift.""But a boomerang is thrown vertically so the directional lift is to the side, unlike an airplane flying horizontal where the directional lift is up in the air.So you throw it nice and vertical, straight up and down, it'll curve around and come back."Broadbent, a former boomerang trick shot champion, first joined the US Boomerang team at age 14, and currently ranks number two in the world.
