Most smartwatches today aren't the most useful of gadgets, but the Leatherman Tread Tempo could actually help you in a bind.The only thing better than having a multitool in your pocket?Having a multitool on your wrist, and the newest product from Leatherman is precisely that.Known as the Tread Tempo, Leatherman describes its latest offering as a “watch-meet-multitool to have on hand for the expected and unexpected.” It’s not a smartwatch in the traditional sense of the word (it won’t track your steps or send a text), but it just might be a lot more practical than some of the existing multi-purpose watches currently on the market.“The idea for the Tread originated on a trip to Disneyland with my family,” said Ben Rivera, president and CEO of Leatherman Tool Group, Inc. “I was stopped at the gate by security for carrying my Skeletool, which has a blade.I was unwilling to give it up, so I took it all the way back to my hotel room and spent the rest of our trip thinking up ways to carry a multitool with me that would be accepted by security.”
Nothing pulls you right out of an immersive virtual reality experience quicker than tripping over a mess of cables and landing flat on your face.It's not something you'll have to worry about with HTC's standalone Vive headset on your bonce, though.A built-in screen and a Snapdragon 835 CPU make it completely self-contained, so you don't need a beefy gaming PC, or even a top-spec smartphone to dive straight into VR.It's China-only for now, and there's no word on price just yet, but you can bet it'll be a whole lot cheaper than the original Vive and its old-school cabled setup.

Emus are big, fluffy, flightless birds indigenous only to Australia.They are also the biggest dufuses in the animal kingdom, and are constantly getting themselves caught up in all sorts of tomfoolery, which is documented in obscure subreddits.Now, Australian researchers at Monash University might have found another reason to love these giant goofballs — a gene that appears to control their wing development may one day help humans born with limb abnormalities.Emus come from a family of flightless running birds called ratites, which is the oldest modern bird family.While they have wings — just eight inches (20 cm) in length — the big birds don’t use them for flying.According to Parks Victoria, emus use their wings for cooling down in the Australian heat.
The 'wonder material' graphene has many interesting characteristics, and researchers around the world are looking for new ways to utilise them.Graphene itself does not have the characteristics needed to switch electrical currents on and off and smart solutions must be found for this particular problem.By selecting certain precursor substances (molecules), we can code the structure of the electrical circuit with extreme accuracy," explains Peter Liljeroth from Aalto University, who conceived the research project together with Ingmar Swart from Utrecht University.Previous research has shown that the ribbon's electronic characteristics are dependent on its atomic width.A ribbon that is five atoms wide behaves similarly to a metallic wire with extremely good conduction characteristics, but adding two atoms makes the ribbon a semiconductor."We are now able to seamlessly integrate five atom-wide ribbons with seven atom-wide ribbons.
Tel Aviv-based startup Prospera has raised a $15 million Series B to expand the scope of its technology, which uses computer vision and artificial intelligence to help farmers analyze data gathered from their fields.The round was led by Qualcomm Ventures, with participation from Cisco Investments, ICV and returning investor Bessemer Venture Partners, and brings Prospera’s total funding to $22 million (its Series A was covered by TechCrunch in July 2016).The startup’s new capital will be used enter more global markets, add people to its delivery and customer-facing teams and broaden its services to cover more crops, “including making a key shift from indoor farms to outdoor farms, which has huge implications given that 40 percent of U.S. land is farmland,” says co-founder and CEO Daniel Koppel.Since its Series A, Prospera has added new customers in Europe, Mexico, and the U.S. and now claims thousands of users, including produce growers for Walmart, Tesco, Sainbury’s, and Aldi.Examples of Prospera's technology analyzing cropsIts technology has also evolved from its focus on automatically detecting pests and diseases to “every aspect of farm production,” says Koppel.

Google is no longer making it easy for pirates to quickly find decent torrent sites.Following numerous reports that the company had begun displaying suggestions for popular torrent platforms straight at the top of Search, the internet giant has now amended its mistake and removed the results carousel in question.Previously, users searching for the keyphrase ‘torrent sites’ or ‘best torrent sites’ were presented with a curated carousel, linking to notorious torrent websites like The Pirate Bay, RARBG and IsoHunt.The carousel also seemed to wrongly recommend legitimate streaming services like Hulu and Crackle alongside a series of illegal alternatives like Putlocker and Alluc.In response to this blunder, a spokesperson for the Big G later clarified that the displayed results were all “generated algorithmically” and did not “reflect what [the company] had in mind for this feature” – and it seems Google has finally fine-tuned the algorithm to avoid such mistakes in the future.In addition to filtering out illegal streaming services from searches for ‘streaming sites,’ Google has also completely blocked the results carousel from displaying torrent sites.
Today's headline is that the communist government in charge has formally banned pop star Justin Bieber from performing in the country due to his "bad behavior," but a far more insidious set of controls have been introduced this week, including a block on movies, sitcoms and even soap operas.The most popular video streaming sites in the country have removed the majority of their material from countries such as the US, UK, Japan and South Korea, with the ban seemingly built on the country of origin rather than the content.Among the shows to have disappeared are Japanese animations and Korean soap operas – which are hugely popular across the country, especially with young people.China has also swung its increasingly sophisticated censorship apparatus onto the issue, with users reporting that they are no longer able to post clips or videos of their favorite shows.One of the most popular video streaming sites, Bilibili, announced in response to a wave of complaints from its users that all of its video content was being reviewed to "meet regulatory standards."For several weeks, the Chinese authorities have been introducing a range of new restrictions and enforcing existing ones.
A smog-eating tower will soon go up in the Netherlands city of Utrecht.On the outside, 10,000 trees and shrubs — nearly half the amount found in New York's Central Park — will fill the skyscraper's facade, roof, and balconies.Inside, it will feature 200 luxury apartment units, restaurants, a fitness center, and offices.Called the Utrecht Vertical Forest, the 300-foot-tall tower will host around 30 different plant species.The plants will absorb 5.4 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year — the equivalent of about one car, according to designers from Italian architecture firm Stefano Boeri Architetti.In addition, the company said the tower will produce about 41,400 tons of oxygen annually, roughly the same as what 2.5 acres of forest generates.

Since Pokémon Go brought augmented reality to mainstream attention in the summer of 2016, AR has been one of the technologies spoken about with most potential.I think I have lost count of the many, many promises made and the many, many attempts by companies to bring this to the end-user.The problem with so many augmented reality plans, is that they seem to think Pokémon GO was some worldwide phenomena, that monetised augmented reality for the first time just because of the technology.Pokémon GO succeeded, where others have since failed, by tapping into an established user base and presenting the technology via the most accessible means available - the smart phone already in people’s pockets.The first is the lack of accessibility.From the £3,000 HoloLens, to the still officially alive Google Glass, to even potentially-useful products such as Hear One, every company is looking for end-users to purchase a new item.
On Tuesday's episode of HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel," correspondent David Scott got the rare opportunity to speak to the pugnacious leader of the Chechen Republic, Ramzan Kadyrov.We have a strong government and are a nuclear superpower.Along with getting Kadyrov's controversial comments, Scott also delved into how Kadyrov's state-run mixed martial arts program, Akhmat MMA, has been a breeding ground for his military — over 5,000 people have signed up in the past two years.Scott became interested in Kadyrov last fall, when news circulated of the leader's Instagram post of his three sons at a children's MMA tournament.Digging deeper into the man and his love of MMA fighting, Scott also found accusations of human-rights violations in Chechnya, including reports of gay men being systematically captured, and tortured or killed.While shooting Kadyrov's latest MMA tournament and interviewing fighters in the Akhmat MMA stable, they waited patiently for the call that Kadyrov was available.
UK mobile provider EE isn't necessarily known being for the cheapest network around, but it does boast our fair island's most comprehensive 4G coverage and fastest speeds (up to 60Mbps).Which makes it all the more tempting to learn that the company has rolled out a new SIM-free deal featuring a hearty 20GB data allowance.Priced at an ultra-competitive £21 a month, you'll also net free access to BT Sport (via the BT Sport app) and an Apple Music subscription.Better still, students can enjoy an extra 20% off the normal price, bringing the tariff down to just £16.80 per month.As you'd expect in 2017, the tariff features unlimited calls and texts, but it's really the whopping 20GB data allowance we're excited about – for the average smartphone user, it should prove more than ample for all your streaming and social media spamming needs, plus it comes with inclusive roaming in 48 countires.To put the deal into context, Three offers a whopping 30GB of data for just £18, but you don't get the BT Sport and Apple Music freebies, and its speeds and coverage don't necessarily match those of EE.
For as long as I can remember, AMD has tried to one-up Intel when it comes to value.For those who love building their own rigs, AMD used to offer more bang for the buck which is why many enthusiasts favor them.But for almost a decade they've been void of a winning product that could challenge Intel, until Ryzen of course.We recently pointed out why the Ryzen Threadripper line should be no different, albeit at the very high-end segment.Intel’s Core i9-7900X gives you a 10-core/20-thread CPU for $1000.Compared with the Threadripper 1950X, you get a 16-core/32-thread workhorse for the same price.
