In October 2016, a startup named Vue promised Kickstarter backers a pair of prescription eyeglasses that could double as wireless earbuds, a fitness tracker, and a smartwatch all at once, plus bone conduction speakers so nobody can eavesdrop on your music and calls. By 2018, $3 million later, the company hadn’t shipped a single pair.
But fast-forward another two years, and Vue is now ready to sell you on the idea again. The new $179-and-up Vue Lite glasses ditch some of the fancier features to focus on Bluetooth audio, with standard speakers instead of bone conduction, a microphone for calls and your phone’s voice assistant, touch controls, and an estimated 3.5 hours of music playback on a charge.
Feedback — both positive and constructive — is a crucial part of building a successful organization. Not only can feedback improve your organization as a whole, but your employees actually want feedback; according to a 2016 article in Forbes, nearly two-thirds of employees said they want more feedback than they’re currently getting. So we can all agree feedback is a must, but effective feedback doesn’t “just happen.” If you want to use feedback to inspire the best in your team (and yourself!), you need to foster a culture where giving, receiving, and acting on feedback isn’t just tolerated — it’s… This story continues at The Next Web
LiDAR, a combination of the words light and radar, is a type of sensor technology that’s popular among some self-driving car companies for real-time mapping. But so far, the tech has been kind of expensive keeping it out the reach of many. Now, LiDAR tech is getting so cheap it’s making it stupid not to include the sensor tech. Chinese electric component manufacturer Huawei says that it’s working on a significantly cheaper LiDAR sensor, which could cost less than $100, Autoevolution reports. This could make the sensors up to, if not more, than five times cheaper than they are at… This story continues at The Next Web
When Samsung debuted the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra earlier this month, it tried to appeal to a more work-oriented crowd, positioning the phablet’s productivity features and its tie-in with Microsoft’s software.

How many video calls are too many video calls? Well, during this pandemic there’s seems to be no limit. And your laptop’s webcam might not the ideal camera to use for these calls because of its quality. Some manufacturers such as Fujifilm and Olympus let you turn the camera into a webcam. But I don’t expect everyone to have one lying around. Besides, billions of people over the world has an iPhone. So, it’s easier to turn that into a webcam. Luckily, NeuralCam’s new app, NeuralCam Live, lets you do that and more. The company has previously released apps for… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: iPhone

(Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati) A new theoretical method paves the way to modelling the interior of the ice giants Uranus and Neptune, thanks to computer simulations on the water contained within them. The tool, developed by scientists from SISSA in Trieste and the University of California at Los Angeles, allows one to analyse thermal and electric processes occurring at physical conditions that are often impossible to reproduce experimentally, with a much easier and low-cost approach.

A criminal investigation has been launched after a police officer was filmed apparently kneeling on a teenager’s neck in July during an arrest.The incident, on July 17, came as Leeds United fans celebrated their club’s promotion to the Premier League. Just one day earlier, a Metropolitan Police officer in London had been suspended, and another placed on restricted duties, after a separate video appeared to show one of them kneeling on a man’s neck in Islington.The West Yorkshire Police officer will be interviewed on suspicion of common assault by investigators from the police watchdog and investigated for gross misconduct.Footage shared on social media shows a 17-year-old boy restrained by officers on the ground outside Elland Road stadium, with one appearing to use his knee.The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) is appealing for witnesses to the incident at around 5pm on July 17.IOPC regional director Miranda Biddle said: “We understand why the images that were circulated caused considerable public concern.“After the footage was shared on social media, a voluntary referral was made to us in relation to the conduct of the officer.“Having examined a range of evidence including body-worn video and initial accounts from the officers involved in the restraint, we have taken the decision that this is now a criminal investigation.“A criminal investigation does not mean that criminal charges will necessarily follow.“It is vitally important that the circumstances of this incident are subject to an independent investigation so we can fully understand what happened and impartially determine the facts.“We have already begun to gather evidence but would like to speak to anyone else who was at Leeds United’s ground at the same time for these celebrations and may have witnessed the incident.”A wave of Black Lives Matter demonstrations have been sweeping the UK following the death of George Floyd, a Black man, at the hands of US police officers.Floyd was killed on May 25 when a police officer kneeled on his neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds.Meanwhile the Met’s Deputy Commissioner Sir Steve House has described footage of the earlier Islington incident as “deeply disturbing” and said some of the techniques, which are “not taught in police training”, caused him “great concern”.The man’s lawyer called for a formal apology from Scotland Yard.Related...
