Google's attempt to colonize the dashboard through plugging in Android phones is set to receive a number of convenience features in the coming months, including the ability to hook up your smartphone via WiFi rather than plugging in a USB cable.In practice, though, being able to leave the phone in your pocket or bag means it's more likely that you'll boot Android Auto up, which Google is undoubtedly hoping will increase use and, as a result, keep more drivers' eyes on the road.As for hot-word triggering, it's Google's familiar "Ok Google" command which has already been used on Android Wear and Android smartphones and tablets.Finally - and excellent news for anyone reliant on its speed camera warnings and accident alerts - Waze is coming to Android Auto.Meanwhile Android has been making some headway in factory-fit infotainment systems, and while not generally identifiable thanks to OEM customization, an increasing number of cars use the platform.Honda's upcoming Ridgeline truck, for instance, uses Android, as does the company's popular Civic.
At Wednesday's Google I/O keynote, the company showed off Android Instant Apps—apps that run without even being installed.The demo was a sneak peek at a feature that will be rolled out over the next year, according to Ellie Powers, group product manager on the Android team.With the Web, you can just click on a link and land on a webpage.She looked for a camera bag on a page of search results, and the resulting link actually loaded a simple app authored by B The app is even already signed in, so that the user doesn t even have to enter a credit card.Imagine tapping a parking meter and downloading the appropriate app—and being ready to pay, too.It could take less than a day of work.
Originally released way back in 1970, the unique sound of the Minimoog analog synthesizer means the hardware is still in demand today.But since Moog stopped producing the synths back in 1981, they re incredibly rare and expensive now—unless you re happy to add this sofa equivalent to your studio.The sofa s outer shell is made from washing machine-safe canvas that s been printed with an oversized Minimoog design using eco-friendly inks.It s filled with polystyrene beads, which means that without a frame it probably feels more like plunking down on a bean bag chair instead of a sofa—but that s still a great place to take a nap.Pricing is around $420 so it s definitely more expensive than a nondescript bean bag chair.If you still want to make music with it, just go download Moog s new $30 synthesizer app and curl up with your smartphone.
Blockbuster season might just be getting underway, but with Captain America dominating the box office, this week's new releases look firmly focused on the small screen.It's not Netflix with the biggest shows, either: Amazon is pulling out all the stops to bag those precious Prime signups.There's plenty of nostalgia too, with several high profile reboots and remakes on the way to US TV channels.After bringing Wall Street to its knees last year, Cyber vigilante Elliot will be back on our screens in July to see what kind of chaos he s caused.We burned through all ten episodes of Amazon s nail-biting tech thriller when the first season landed, so it ll be two very long months while we wait for this second run to kick off.A chain-smoking Texan clergyman, infused with alien powers that lets him order people to do anything?
Android Instant Apps is a game-changer for the mobile Web.Announced at Google I/O today, Instant Apps lets developers take advantage of modules that allow mobile Web users to use an application without actually installing it.The first example showed the user clicking a Buzzfeed Video link to view a recipe and being transported to the appropriate part of the application — all in a span of about two seconds.No app install took place and after a total of three clicks, and about 30 seconds, the demonstrator has purchased a new camera bag.Google expects to roll out Android Instant Apps by the end of the year.Read next: The internet thinks Google Home looks like an air freshener

To put that in perspective, NASA has previous noted it's "big enough to encompass a football stadium".The weight of the balloon plus payload is 4,500kg, or "roughly 10 grand pianos or 2.5 mid-size cars", or indeed "55 kangaroos, 100 toilets, or 1,000 cats", as NASA nicely put it last month.On the ground, the SPB displays sub-stadium dimensions, but it's still impressive, as the launch vid grabbed on Monday at New Zealand's Wanaka Airport shows:SPBs are designed for "ultra-long-duration flight of up to 100 days at mid-latitudes", carrying scientific payloads to a more-or-less constant float altitude of 33.5km, as a budget alternative to sending them into orbit atop rockets.For this mission, the massive sandwich bag is carrying the University of California's Compton Spectrometer and Imager COSI , which will "probe the mysterious origins of galactic positrons, study the creation of new elements in the galaxy, and perform pioneering studies of gamma-ray bursts and black holes".While NASA hopes the SPB will stay aloft for over three months, the current flight record is 54 days, on a 2009 mission which began at the previous launch site in Antarctica.The first flight from Wanaka in 2015 lasted 32 days, five hours and 51 minutes before a leak prompted NASA to abort the mission over Outback Australia.

After all, you want to leave on a professional note—not an unprepared one that ends with you turning this final meeting into an impromptu why I hate this job therapy session.What the heck caused you to want to pack up your bags and go?First, your employer wants to identify whether or not there was a single event that precipitated your departure—such as a falling out with your manager or a co-worker.Secondly, he or she s hoping to determine if there are any shortcomings with the position that need to be resolved before bringing in a replacement.Remember, one of a company s key goals is employee retention.It might seem a little strange to air your grievances about lack of training, unhelpful technology, or a completely uncommunicative team.
MyPORT, a new automated security system created by the Schindler Elevator Corporation, aims to eliminate this fuss.Once installed in a building, the technology allows those who work or live there to download a companion smartphone app that automatically opens doors and summons elevators."The idea is to be able to walk throughout a building seamlessly," Schindler's product manager Jeff Blain tells Tech Insider.When a user approaches a lobby turnstile, a bluetooth sensor installed by Schindler  recognizes their phone, even if it's inside a bag or pocket.Blain says the system is designed to make it simpler to enter your office or apartment, since it works with your phone which, chances are, is already in your hand anyway , thereby eliminating the need for a key card."We want to make people's lives easier in any way we can," he says.Since the system only grants entry to people holding verified phones, it could also eliminate the need for a human guard or doorman.For package deliveries, users get a notification on their phone, can see a video of the mailperson, and let them in or tell them to come back later.More from Tech Insider:The internet is obsessed with these stunning 'mirror cakes'Bill Gates says everyone should read this book about the moon blowing upEating breakfast isn't actually all that important, according to scienceThe entire country of Portugal ran on wind, solar, and hydropower for four days straight13 Stanford students reveal the apps they can't live withoutNOW WATCH: A hair scientist debunks the biggest myth about shavingLoading video...
The 20 who presented different solutions were all more or less inside the solutions to the problems of today's food system takes somewhere basis of sustainability. David Jackson from English winnow Solutions pointed to the still unorganized opportunities in the global market of 1 trillion dollars annually which is about bout of food. Glue the lock company has initiated cooperation with ICA, where food distributor may enter the dwelling and set the items in the refrigerator / freezer, which is desirable for it to last.

Christopher Slim from iFoodbag then showed up their new paper bag that can keep cooling up to 24 hours. It is completely crazy, but amazing taste sensations.

Market DynamicsPCs are still the number one punching bag of analysts and pundits when it comes to a consumer electronics market segment that is declining year after year after year.The Tides of ChangeThe decline of the tablet market and the lack of high-quality Android tablets form a vicious cycle, one feeding the other like a ouroboros.The iPhone 6s' 4.7 inches comes close but even the iPhone SE is now considered an outlier rather than the norm.Thanks to a lack of higher end tablets and the seeming lower demand for those, a large percentage of Android OEMs have stuck to saturating the market with low to mid range offerings.The professional/productivity bent wasn't really just limited to the iPad Pro.Google will hardly go overboard and start reskinning Android the way Jide does for Remix OS.
The companies have teamed up on a smart jacket for bicyclists that will allow wearers to control their smartphones using sensors woven into the cuff.The Commuter smart jacket is a key step for wearable technology because it's more stylish and less obtrusive than a smartwatch.Remove it, and the jacket looks like a normal piece of clothing.The jacket is designed to be hung up, crumpled up and tossed in a bag, thrown over a chair, and even put through a washing machine, said Levi's Vice President Paul Dillinger.There's still a question of price, though.The company is working with commercial uniform maker Cintas to bring Jacquard into the enterprise as well.
