these smart glasses automatically adjust to your eyes

Imagine glasses that could bring everything into focus, shifting prescriptions from near to farsighted and back again in moments. It’s not possible with today’s glass lenses, but a breakthrough in what are called liquid lenses could make smart glasses that do exactly that. They could put an end to bifocals, and you’d only ever need that one pair of adjustable spectacles for the rest of your life.Researchers at the University of Utah produced a prototype pair of these glasses by using flexible lenses and piezoelectric pistons. For users who are both nearsighted and farsighted, the lens’ curvature is gradually shifted between optical powers by the pistons. As the lenses change they can bring into focus any point along the way. This is possible because the lenses aren’t made of rigid material

new glasses help the legally blind see

In this photo taken Thursday, Feb. 2, 2017, Yvonne Felix wears eSight electronic glasses and looks around Union Square during a visit to San Francisco. The glasses enable the legally blind to see. Felix was diagnosed with Stargardt's disease after being hit by a car at the age of seven. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg)Jeff Regan was born with underdeveloped optic nerves and had spent most of his life in a blur. Then four years ago, he donned an unwieldy headset made by a Toronto company called eSight.
Suddenly, Regan could read a newspaper while eating breakfast and make out the faces of his co-workers from across the room. He's been able to attend plays and watch what's happening on stage, without having to guess why people around him were laughing."These glasses have made my life so much better

15 imessage tips and tricks all iphone users need to know

You may not know it, but a considerable amount of storage space on your iPhone may be attributed to the Messages app, especially if you send a lot of iMessages with photos, videos, and attachments. This can be a problem particularly if your iPhone only has a paltry 16GB allowance. Fortunately, if you’re not one to hold on to messages for reasons sentimental or otherwise, you can set your device to automatically delete old messages.To do this, open the Settings app, tap Messages, tap Keep Messages (under the heading Message History), tap 30 days to automatically delete messages older than 30 days or 1 Year to automatically delete messages older than one year, and tap Delete in the warning pop-up menu. (If you don’t want to automatically delete messages at all, tap Forever.)

automatically test your database backups – marco.org

February 1, 2017∞https://marco.org/2017/02/01/db-backup-testingOne of the issues of yesterday’s GitLab.com “database incident” is that most of their database backups weren’t being tested, and when they needed a restore, they discovered that most of the backup methods hadn’t been working.Untested backup methods that turn out to be missing or broken are extremely common. I can’t fault them much because it’s a very easy mistake to make: most backups, by nature, never need to be restored from, so you never realize if something changes and they stop working… until it’s too late.The solution is to frequently and automatically test backups by:Regularly downloading the latest backup from S3 (or wherever) and performing a full restore onto a clean server.Testing its validity in a way that a human i

mobile health and nutrition teams providing crucial services for pastoralist mot

By Rebecca BeauregardGASHAMO, SOMALI, 15 February 2017 – Mutas does not look at his mother. He is not looking anywhere, rather he lays still, his unfocused pupils covered occasionally by heavy eyelids. While we talk, his mother, Bedra Dek, keeps her eyes entirely on him. Her one-year-old son is suffering from severe acute malnutrition (SAM) and despite the food and water shortage and her two other children, she explains that all her thoughts are focused on him improving.“When your child is well, spiritually you feel happy. This is what I am waiting and hoping for. Nothing else is in my mind except this,” Bedra speaks softly, her eyes never wavering from her son.About six months ago, Mutas became sick with a cold. Since then, he has fought that illness and intermittent diarrhoea while they

smart road to parked car: talk to me

When cars start talking both to one another and to traffic signals, they will sometimes suffer from the cellphone user’s bane: dropped calls. That’s because there won’t always be enough cars roaming around to serve as partners or relays.So why not have access to parked cars? They’re shiny, they’re rested, and they are there precisely when you need them most—when few cars are plying the roads. Until now, most concepts for smart roads have planned to fill gaps in the chain of communication with relay stations. You find such roadside units, as they’re called, in Japan and in parts of Europe. The problem is, each one carries an upfront cost of around US $50,000, according [PDF] to the U.S. General Accounting Office. Throw in maintenance and amortization and the annual cost can average $18,000.

the nba hopes vr will expand its audience

When asked if watching in VR could end up distracting people from the game, Rogondino said he believes it's more like peeling another layer for the viewer. "Did people feel it was distracting when the game, or whatever they were watching, went from black and white to color?" he asked. "All of a sudden they were like, 'Oh my gosh, those flowers in the corner are so much more vivid than I ever thought they were.' Then eventually, over time, you adjust to watching that and if you ever went to black and white you would think, 'Oh my God. This is archaic.'"There are some downsides to the tech, though. For one, don't expect to watch games in high resolution with a VR headset, though that could change later on as VR production cameras improve. The other thing is, can your brain really handle a tw

the solution to trumpism? a little kindness and generosity

Helen Fuller, a grandmother of 10 and former primary school teacher, was sitting on a Metro train opposite a white woman about her age and a brown man in his mid-20s when she found herself listening in to their conversation. "I'm blessed with good hearing," she says. She heard the story of how the young man and his family had arrived in Australia from Afghanistan. "He looked a very lovely boy," she says. "I could tell from his face."When the young man – Abuzar Mazoori, a part-time student and youth worker – said that he had not seen anything of Australia but Melbourne, Helen had what she calls an inspiration. "Sometimes I have these impulses to trust people." Leaning forward, she apologised for listening but said she had a holiday house in Rye and perhaps the young man and his family might

7 lessons from building a gopro auto-panorama device

Recently I bought a GoPro Hero5 camera to help document my projects. One of the features that sold me on it was the voice control function. I initially thought it was kind of a silly feature, but being able to operate it hands free allows me to take photos or video without stopping what I’m doing.This gave me another idea; why not trigger it with my recorded voice? I could place something on a fixture, have it turn a certain angle, then automatically take a picture. There are other, ways to do this, such as hacking its WiFi connection or just having it take sequential time lapse photos, but voice control seemed like a novel way to accomplish this. Sometimes that’s the only motivation I need.I eventually got it working, but it wasn’t that straightforward. Here are a few lessons I learned al

study shows adipose stem cells may be the cell of choice for therapeutic applica

An international team of researchers, funded by Morris Animal Foundation, has shown that adipose (fat) stem cells might be the preferred stem cell type for use in canine therapeutic applications, including orthopedic diseases and injury.Researchers at the University of Guelph, University of Western Ontario and Aarhus University, Denmark, ran a battery of tests comparing the physiology characteristics of stem cells derived from adipose tissue versus bone marrow. They found that stem cells from both sources had similar functional properties, including tissue generation and immunomodulating capabilities (ability to adjust immune response), but adipose stem cells grow at a faster rate than bone marrow stem cells. Harvesting adipose stem cells also is less invasive than harvesting bone marrow.

why reading word by word is a bad strategy to better understand an idea

You may not realize it, but we all read very often in our daily life. We always want to go through all the documents faster at work; we just want to find out the main point of all the long letters and notes from the government or any kinds of organizations quickly; even when we read for leisure, we’d probably be traveling on the bus and just want to finish the current chapter as soon as possible. Yes I get it, you want to read faster without missing the gems.But is speeding up your word-by-word reading what you should do? The answer is definitely no.Reading word by word slows you down from processing the idea.When we read, our eyes normally stop on each word. We call this fixation. It is a bad idea to stop at every word in the text because it slows down the reading speed and may even affec

facebook claims a technical error automatically logged users out

Facebook has issued the following statement in response:"Earlier today an error in one of our systems designed to help prevent suspicious account access sent a small set of people to our account recovery flow unnecessarily. We have fixed the issue and are in the process of clearing the affected accounts from this recovery flow. We apologize for any inconvenience."What's more, a source tells us that this was the result of a technical error (sounds familiar) and there's no reason to think your account was at risk. And if you got an error earlier, there shouldn't be anything that you need to do to reinstate your account. "[Users] can go through the flow," the source said, "but if they take no action, we will clear the recovery flow on their behalf very soon."Facebook wasn't alone in this type
