Är Ösa den första motorcykeln någonsin som är inspirerad av en arbetsbänk?Den svenska elmotorcykeltillverkaren Cake har nu presenterat sin senaste skapelse efter debutanten Kalk.Det blev dock inte Bula, vilket Cakes vd och grundare Stefan Ytterborn trodde i våras.I stället är det Ösa som nu gör entré.Mest framträdande är den långa balken som utgör en flexibel fästpunkt för sadeln samt en mängd olika tillbehör som korgar, väskor och krokar, beroende på användningsområde.Litiumjonbatteriet kan även fungera som en strömkälla för handverktyg – eller musikutrustning för den som vill anordna en konsert i skogen.

The introduction of biometric authentication might have been met with some scepticism, and the technology still has its critics, but it does seem to be gaining traction in the UK.Opening a smartphone might be the most widely-adopted use of the technology, but how about age authentication in the pub?71% of respondents for the survey are happy with finger-print or facial recognition to complete replace traditional PIN verification for accessing smartphones, while another 64% would be happy to see the technologies replace passwords for laptops.60% of respondents are happy for biometric authentication for age verification and 58% would even be open to see voting ballots given the same upgrade.With data breaches and leaks being reported in the press with continued regularity, consumer confidence will certainly be impacted.And the irony this survey has been sponsored by Equifax, the source of one of the biggest data breaches to date, has not been lost on us.

China-based smart device maker Xiaomi just released a “Xiaomi Mi Watch” that looks a whole lot like the Apple Watch.It has a very, very similar size and shape… and home screens (watch faces).There are some simple giveaways, but really – there’s no getting around the idea that there’s some MAJOR design inspiration going on here – to put it kindly.This Xiaomi Mi Watch has a 1.78-inch (326 PPI) AMOLED always-on touchscreen display.This software is based on WearOS from Google – which will be very interesting to see, given that “based on WearOS” has never really been a reality for a final market-ready product before now.Despite this MIUI for Watch’s relative newness, Xiaomi said that “over 40” apps are available for the watch at launch.

Diablo 4 wasn’t the only big reveal of BlizzCon 2019’s opening ceremony, as Blizzard also announced Overwatch 2.Rumors and whispers heading into BlizzCon 2019 suggested such a reveal was going to happen, and it turns out they were right.Overwatch 2 will apparently put a heavier emphasis on PvE content, though fans who enjoy Overwatch‘s PvP modes will be taken care of as well.While the original Overwatch was warmly received by the gaming public, one major complaint at launch was that there wasn’t any story content for players interested in Overwatch lore to work through.It seems that Overwatch 2 will rectify that, with Blizzard promising a collection of PvE content that includes story and hero missions that pit the Overwatch team against organizations like Null Sector and Talon.Of course, there will be PvP content as well, with Blizzard revealing a new symmetrical map type called Push.

”Kvantdatorer knäcker inte bara kryptovalutor utan de knäcker hela vår digitala värld”, säger Jonathan Jogenfors som är forskningschef på Sectra och har forskat om både blockkedjor och kvantdatorer.Under onsdagen kablades nyheten ut att en grupp Google-forskare har nått ett stort genombrott inom datorvetenskapen.Googles vd Sundar Pichai firade genombrottet – och lyfte fram att kvantkraften så småningom kan bana väg för såväl nya läkemedel som batterier.Läs mer: Google: Vårt kvant-genombrott kan bana väg för nya batterierJonathan Jogenfors, som är forskningschef på cybersäkerhetsföretaget Sectra som tar fram kvantsäker kryptografi, betonar dock att kvantdatorerna ännu befinner sig i sin linda:”Jag skulle inte kalla det för en fungerande kvantdator, men det är ett steg i den riktningen och man har överkommit många tekniska svårigheter.”

Microsoft has persuaded another big-name streamer to leave Twitch and come into the Mixer fold, with Shroud making the move, following Ninja doing so back in August.Both of these highly-followed game streamers are now exclusive to the Mixer platform, and so that begs the question: are more to follow?As to what sort of deal Microsoft may have given Shroud – real name Michael Grzesiek – and how much of a financial incentive was contained therein isn’t clear, and unsurprisingly no specific details were offered.Shroud told CNN Business: “The move to Mixer allows me to focus on what I love: gaming.It allows me to focus on livestreaming for my fans and directly engage with more interactivity and variety.New home.https://t.co/eZV2GBBSsY pic.twitter.com/AHaajkjeesOctober 24, 2019

A panel of experts on Thursday played down the notion that mainland China is much more advanced than Hong Kong in terms of the technology of mobile payments, saying it was more of a perception issue among consumers.“It’s more likely a change of mindset that is needed in Hong Kong [when looking at mobile payments adoption], how do people see digital and e-payments compared to cash,” said Effie Xin, managing partner of Asia-Pacific fintech and innovation financial services at EY in a “Redefining Hong Kong” panel discussion organized by the South China Morning Post.“I would not say that mainland China is more advanced than Hong Kong [in this area].”On average, a Hong Kong person uses a digital wallet two or three times a week, but only one-third of Hongkongers are classified as heavy users at four to six times a week, according to statistics from a 2019 Tofugear Digital Payments Landscape Report.The number of mobile payment users in China reached 659 million in 2018, and about 44% of them carry out more than 75% of their monthly expenditure via mobile payments, according to iiMedia Research.Only 4% of overall retail spending in Hong Kong is conducted online, compared with 24% on the mainland, which is the highest of any nation, according to the FIS 2019 Retail Global Payments Report.

What makes a classic car, well, a classic?Some go by age, which is arguably the best yardstick.Others might consider a car or truck's marketplace significance.Makes and models that are no longer in production could be considered classics, too, even if they're not particularly old.Federation Internationale des Vehicules Anciens, or the international federation of historic vehicles (FIVA for short), is taking a stance against these automotive Frankensteins.Founded in 1966, this global organization is dedicated to preserving and protecting historic vehicles.

This week, Google’s big NYC hardware event introduced the new Pixel 4 smartphones, but it also showcased the Pixelbook Go.It also had an unusual 3:2 aspect ratio, which was supposed to help with reading websites.All in all, the first Chromebook Pixel had some impressive hardware, and it was all encased in an aluminum body, with a backlit keyboard.It also had a high price: $1,299 for the standard model, and $1,499 for the LTE version.Google was definitely not targeting the average laptop buyer.Google wanted a great notebook so that developers would be encouraged to buy it and make more Chrome OS apps.

A man in the US has been charged for allegedly operating an $11 million Bitcoin Ponzi scheme.The US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) announced the filing of a civil enforcement action yesterday, charging David Gilbert Saffron of Las Vegas, and Circle Society, Corp, with “fraudulent solicitation, misappropriation, and registration violations.”The complaint says that from at least December 2017, the defendants fraudulently solicited and accepted at least $11 million worth of Bitcoin and US dollars from at least 14 people in the United States.The money was then used to exchange binary options on foreign currencies and cryptocurrency pairs, among other things.Saffron created Circle Society to allegedly perpetrate his fraud, by making false claims about his trading expertise and guaranteeing rates of return up to 300 percent.Instead of using the pool participants’ funds to trade, the defendants are accused of misappropriating funds, by retaining customers’ funds in Saffron’s own cryptocurrency wallet and using the money to pay other participants.

The idea is to help caseworkers refine their skills in a real-world setting, interviewing a child, a mother, and an admittedly scary-looking father.Only the immersive storytelling and interactivity of VR and voice could make this training so impactful, said Cortney Harding, founder of Friends With Holograms, in an interview with VentureBeat.(I’m going to moderate a session on enterprise VR at Greenlight Insights‘ Virtual & Augmented Reality Strategy Conference during XRS Week on Thursday.)“It’s gotten an incredibly positive response so far,” Harding said.This is really groundbreaking technology, and we’ve found a good way to use it.”The social worker VR program was a 20-minute training program, with a subtle narrative.

Now-removed personal website statement sparks confusionOn Monday, a group of maintainers of the GNU Project, the free operating system created by Richard Stallman, questioned Stallman's leadership and emitted a joint statement for rethinking how the project should be managed going forward.Late last month, after resigning as president of the Free Foundation in the wake of catastrophically insensitive statements posted to an MIT mailing list, and a social media backlash, Stallman also appeared to resign as the head of the GNU Project.A statement saying as much appeared on his personal website.In an email to The Register, Matt Lee, a free and open-source software developer and one of the 18 signatories of the joint statement, offered support for that theory."On September 16, I resigned as president of the Free Software Foundation, but the GNU Project and the FSF are not the same," he wrote.

With Google’s big pixel event coming next week, the Internet is once again heating up with rumors and leaks about the Pixel 4 phones.Given how those have run in the past few months, there is very little left to talk about, unless you start comparing the Pixel 4 to its predecessor, the Pixel 3.A new info dump doesn’t exactly revealing many new things but does confirm the details surrounding the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL and, at least in some aspects, those details can prove to be disappointing.On the one hand, it’s not that surprising that Google would have some differentiating factors between the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL aside from the body size and screen size.After all, all things being equal, the two have similar core specs, including the Snapdragon 855, not the Plus variant, 6 GB of RAM, and a “Pixel Neural Core” that utilizes machine learning and AI for various functions, like camera image processing.The Pixel 4, however, may seem like it’s getting the short end of the stick in more ways than one.

Här kan ni kolla in ett exoskelett som är utvecklat av forskare på franska University of Grenoble Alpes och som är tänkt att ge förlamade människor möjlighet att gå i framtiden.De exoskelett vi vanligtvis skriver om är ofta utvecklade för tunga lyft inom industrin eller för att förbättra rörligheten hos någon som drabbats av en rörelsenedsättning.Exoskelettet som forskarna i Frankrike har utvecklat är dock tänkt att kunna användas utav människor som helt saknar känsel och förmågan att röra sig.Detta har man åstadkommit genom att transplantera in två skivor med elektroder vilka har ersatt en del av försökspersonens skalle.Dessa elektroder registrerar försökspersonens hjärnaktivitet och när det känner av att denna handlar om att gå så skickas signaler till exoskelettet som då börjar röra sig.Som synes så är det hela än så länge inte särskilt användbart då det 65 kilo tunga exoskelettet måste vara fäst i taket för att inte förlora balansen.

Back in February, the heat probe of NASA’s InSight lander didn’t get very far while trying to tunnel a hole into Mars.On 28 February 2019, the lander began an important phase of the mission: deploying its heat probe, a component of the Heat Flow and Physical Properties Package (HP3).Designed by the German Aerospace Center, the probe, or “mole,” is designed to measure the amount of heat escaping from beneath the Martian surface, and it was supposed to get as deep as 5 metres (16 feet).Unfortunately, the heat probe only managed to get down some 35 centimetres (14 inches) before it stopped.So little progress was made that the top of the mole is still sticking out from the hole.Unfortunately, the team can’t just pull the device out and start again elsewhere; the probe is a one-and-done deal, as it’s unable to move in reverse.

A new way of 3D printing soft materials such as gels and collagens offers a major step forward in the manufacture of artificial medical implants.Developed by researchers at the University of Birmingham, the technique could be used to print soft biomaterials that could be used to repair defects in the body.Printing soft materials using additive manufacturing has been a big challenge for scientists because if they are not supported, they sag and lose their shape.The new technique, called Suspended Layer Additive Manufacturing (SLAM), uses a polymer-based hydrogel in which the particles have been manipulated to create a self-healing gel.Liquids or gels can be injected directly into this medium and built up in layers to create a 3D shape.The method offers an alternative to existing techniques which use gels that have been minced to form a slurry bath into which the printed material is injected.
