  • It’s time to revisit Pokémon Go

    Feb 19, 2017 | 14:49 pm

    It’s time to revisit Pokémon Go The summer of 2016 was the summer of Pokémon Go. Everywhere you went, you could see people playing the popular augmented-reality mobile game. But our love affair with it was short-lived. By the time Winter came along, millions of players had deleted the app from their phones. It isn’t hard to see why. Any game that demands you leave the comfort of your home will struggle in cold and wet weather. There was also the problem that Pokémon Go’s gameplay had become repetitive. It’s hard to work up the enthusiasm to go out in the rain if all you’d catch…[…]

  • 3 ways startups can slash operating costs

    Feb 18, 2017 | 08:30 am

    3 ways startups can slash operating costs One of the more expensive aspects of running a business revolves around handling money. Yes, a budget is important. But, even more important, is how much it costs for an enterprise to move their money around. After all, just because you know how to generate revenue, doesn’t mean you know how to generate a profit. Expenses add up and can easily get out of control. John Rampton, the Founder of Due, is on a mission to reduce or eliminate the costs associated with payments for hard working entrepreneurs. I had the opportunity to listen to him speak at a conference, and…[…]

  • This fire-breathing drone is having none of your rubbish

    Feb 18, 2017 | 00:47 am

    This fire-breathing drone is having none of your rubbish A power company in China found a novel way to eliminate trash on power lines — set it on fire. A video posted to Chinese social media site QQ shows what appears to be a test of the process in Xiangyang, Hubei Province. In the video, the eight-bladed drone flies to the line and releases a huge plume of fire at the trash. After the burned trash falls off the line, the drone descends to a man in uniform holding its controller. While this could damage the very power lines it’s trying to preserve, it also minimizes the risk of human…[…]

  • ZTE’s Project CSX phone gets second wind after failed Kickstarter

    Feb 18, 2017 | 00:12 am

    ZTE’s Project CSX phone gets second wind after failed Kickstarter ZTE did something pretty cool last year when it asked users to submit ideas for a crowdsourced phone – dubbed Project CSX – eventually settling on an eye-tracking device tentatively called the Hawkeye. But after all that hullabaloo, ZTE has decided to kill it’s Kickstarter campaign and go back to drawing board. The winning CSX concept garnered popular support for both its wacky ideas – the phone was supposed to be able to magically stick to surfaces and track your vision for things like scrolling around webpages.

  • Engineers built a folding shield that can stop a bullet

    Feb 17, 2017 | 20:29 pm

    Engineers built a folding shield that can stop a bullet Chances are you’ve never folded an origami swan with thoughts that it could save your life. Engineers at Brigham Young University did — well, kind of. It’s not a swan, but the inspiration is hard to miss. BYU’s origami shield tips the scales at only 55 pounds. Ultra portable, the suitcase-sized device expands with a unique folding mechanism. It’s not nothing, but engineers say common ballistic barriers weigh in at up to 100 pounds. Reinforcing the barrier’s 12 layers of Kevlar with an aluminum frame rather than steel significantly lightened the load. Once deployed, it’s capable of shielding two to…[…]
