Smarty pants: Robot trousers could keep the elderly mobile

Johnathan Rossiter proudly displays his new trousers. Brightly coloured and fit for the running track, but packing more than just Lycra. They'll be robotic."We are all going to get older and our mobility is going to reduce," he says. "What we want to do is give people that extra bit of boost, to maintain their independence as long as possible."A team of British researchers thinks the future lies in wearable soft robotics. They've developed robotic muscles; air-filled bubbles of plastic that can raise a leg from a seated to a standing position.Getting this technology into the trousers might be 10...

Rotating Asteroid Bennu from OSIRIS-REx

Explanation: Could this close-by asteroid ever hit the Earth? Eventually yes -- but probably not for a very long time, even though the asteroid is expected to pass inside the orbit of the Moon next century. However, to better understand the nature and orbit of all near-Earth asteroids, NASA sent the robotic Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security, Regolith Explorer (OSIRIS-REx) to investigate this one: the 500-meter across asteroid 101955 Bennu. Launched in 2016, OSIRIS-REx is now approaching Bennu, and is first scheduled to map the minor planet's rough surface. The featured time-lapse video taken earlier this month compacts Bennu's...

Apple’s iPhone XS Max on iOS 12.1 gets Jailbreak

While Jailbreaking an iPhone is getting tougher by the version, the iOS 12.1 just showed that hackers are one step ahead of Apple. The iOS 12.1 was recently Jailbroken and the first device that helped them succeed was the iPhone XS Max. Tencent KeenLab researcher Liang Chen confirmed on Twitter that he has managed to pwn the iPhone XS Max on iOS 12.1, reported Softpedia. He confirms that the days of Jailbreaking are not dead yet. However, if you are now thinking that you too could Jailbreak into your iPhone XS Max, stop here. Not every hacker/developer who Jailbreaks into...

France to 'embed' regulators at Facebook to combat hate speech

Facebook will allow French regulators to “embed” inside the company to examine how it combats online hate speech, the first time the wary tech giant has opened its doors in such a way, President Emmanuel Macron said on Monday. From January, Macron’s administration will send a small team of senior civil servants to the company for six months to verify Facebook’s goodwill and determine whether its checks on racist, sexist or hate-fuelled speech could be improved. “It’s a first,” Macron told the annual Internet Governance Forum in Paris. “I’m delighted by this very innovative experimental approach,” he said. “It’s an...
