Created in partnership with creative agency Goodby Silverstein & Partners, the Tostitos Party Bag is outfitted with sensors to detect alcohol on a person’s breath. If you’re in the clear, the bag turns green and you’re free to go about your night. If alcohol is detected, the bag turns red with the message, “Don’t drink and drive,” and offers a $10 Uber credit for a discounted ride home. It’s even got near-field communication technology that lets you tap your phone to the bag to hail the ride, if you’re that blasted.
Libraries everywhere have been asking me about an enclosure for the Mini, and finally there’s one that Lulzbot stands behind. Looks great, protects from grabbing little hands, and stabilizes the print area temperatures so ABS and the like can print more reliably. Win!
Reduce warping, shrinkage, and splitting of 3D printed parts, like ABS, while keeping curious hands away from the heated, moving components of your 3D printer.
Computer vision, sensors, and more…here’s what a smart store looks like when implemented by Amazon.
This is incredible.
Less than a week after getting approval by the FAA for a nighttime drone show, Disney has teased that an all new nighttime holiday spectacular that’s slated to take place at Disney Springs this year.
If it weren’t for Pokémon Go, augmented reality might have stayed another forlorn futurist technology the public paid little attention to. Instead, the AR mobile game from developer Niantic Labs, a former Google subsidiary, catapulted the technology to hundreds of millions of smartphone owners around the world. Now a few months after the game’s launch, the first fully capable AR smartphone has started shipping. It’s Lenovo’s Phab 2 Pro, and under the hood it contains the hardware and software neccesary to use Google’s Tango AR technology.
Google (GOOGL, Tech30) unveiled a new 55-inch digital whiteboard on wheels that is intended to “redefine meetings,” or at least help Google gain footing in the workplace.The product, called Jamboard, lets teams pull up documents and presentations on screen from Google’s suite of productivity tools like Docs and Drive. Likewise, whatever you write or draw on the giant touchscreen can then be backed up online.
In partnership with Anheuser-Busch, and with full support from the State of Colorado, we hauled 51,744 cans of Budweiser from Fort Collins, through downtown Denver, to Colorado Springs. By using cameras, radar, and lidar sensors mounted on the vehicle to “see” the road, Otto’s system controlled the acceleration, braking, and steering of the truck to carry the beer exit-to-exit without any human intervention.

This is a crazy story about custom hardware designed to allow for card game cheating, including not only poker but nearly any other card game. Custom hardware made to look like a cell phone plus IR marked cards equals total knowledge about what’s happening on the table.
Upon ordering the poker cheating device I kinda expected, based on the screenshots I had seen early on, to get a dedicated piece of hardware that kinda looked like a fake phone. However, to my surprise, the device, showcased in the picture above, far exceeded my expectations by being a fully functional phone with extra hardware dedicated to cheating. Also to my surprise, the device not only allows to cheat at Poker but to cheat at almost any kind of card games you can think of.
Computer vision + projection and a lot of fancy math….really impressive stuff.
