Harvard scientists develop first autonomous soft robot

Meet the octobot, a unique new creation out of Harvard that the university says could be the first step in a new kind of bot.

This totally soft robot has eight movable legs, just like its flesh-and-blood marine cousin, which was the inspiration for the device.

Created partially through 3-D printing, the octobot is autonomous, according to Harvard’s John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Its power source is hydrogen peroxide, which together with a catalyst of platinum, creates gas that travels into the bot’s appendages to move them.

Uber Flat Rates

Uber’s new flat fare is cheaper than the bus

Uber’s new flat fare is cheaper than the bus

New test fares being rolled out by Uber in select markets are making the ride-sharing service all new kinds of cheap. A beta program being tested in a few chosen cities scrap surge pricing and charging per-mile in favor of a flat fare for UberPool that’s the same price as a bus ticket.

According to an email seen by Business Insider UK, pricing in San Francisco is a pack of 20 rides for $20, or 40 rides for $30. On top of that base fee, you then pay $2 per ride. So, on the lower pricing, you’re paying $3 per ride for an UberPool trip.

Apple’s next iPhones could capture video footage and fingerprint data of thieves

Being one of the most desirable items on the planet, it’s no wonder that the iPhone is often the target of theft. Apple has done an admirable job of battling back against thieves with tools such as Find My iPhone and giving iPhone owners the ability to wipe their devices remotely when they are lost or stolen.

But the future of iPhone security could be far more impressive.

Home Security Camera With Alarm

Save 20% on a 1080p home security camera with motion detection and an alarm

By about 10 hours ago.

Save 20% on a 1080p home security camera with motion detection and an alarm

Remember back in the day when companies managed to get away with charging people thousands to install a home security system and then charging a monthly fee on top of that for “monitoring” services? Burglars take off the moment they hear an alarm go off, for obvious reasons: they don’t want to stick around while all that racket draws attention. So instead of coughing up all that cash for a home alarm system, check out a device like the Edimax IC-5150W 1080P Full HD Wi-Fi Fisheye Cloud Camera with 180-Degree Panoramic View, which is on sale right now on Amazon for 20% off. It streams 1080p full HD video to your iPhone or Android phone and it has integrated motion detection with a built-in alarm. More →

Apple Criticism

Apple is still damned if it does and damned if it doesn’t

Apple is still damned if it does and damned if it doesn’t

For years, Apple has been held to a completely different standard than the rest of the tech industry. Whereas a company like Google can pursue and then shutter any number of ambitious “moonshots” and ultimately be applauded for their efforts, Apple is routinely criticized for not coming up with a device as revolutionary as the iPhone every 5 years. In a broad sense, Apple is forced to endure a level of criticism that no other tech company on the planet has to deal with.

A gold iPhone 7 is already on sale because everything is awful

Thanks to leaks, everyone in this world already has a very good idea what the iPhone 7 will look like, so it was reasonably simple for Goldgenie to take a rendering, and add bling until blinded.

Is Android malware more popular than Google’s own app?

How can I compare the popularity of Google’s recently launched Duo video chat app to Android malware apps that many consider not to be a thing? That’s preposterous, heresy even. But I’m just going to show how much our perception is altered when talking about market share in the mobile business using Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai as a benchmark. More →

Best WiFi Range Extender

One of TP-Link’s best Wi-Fi range extenders is on sale on Amazon for a week

One of TP-Link’s best Wi-Fi range extenders is on sale on Amazon for a week

Typical Wi-Fi range extenders can work well if they’re from a reputable company, but you can run into problems if your Wi-Fi signal is already weak by the time it reaches the spot where your range extender is plugged in. There’s a much better solution out there though, and it uses powerline internet technology. In a nutshell, it sends your internet service over your wired power lines that are already installed in your walls, and then a remote extender broadcasts on the same network as your main router.

It’s a fantastic option for extending your home network, and one of the best models out there is the TP-LINK AC1200 Wi-Fi Range Extender AV1200 Powerline Edition, which happens to be on sale on Amazon for one week beginning today. More →

Apple Eu Tax Investigation

Apple might owe the EU billions in back taxes

Apple might owe the EU billions in back taxes

Apple has been under fire from the EU over its tax system for quite some time, but up until now, we didn’t know how bad things were. JP Morgan, one of Apple’s investment banks overseeing the case, has put the potential tax bill at $19 billion. That’s a ways over the previous estimates, and a healthy chunk of change even for the cash-flush Apple.

The news came at the same time as the US Treasury Department sought to intervene in the case. The government has entered the fight on Apple’s side, accusing the European Commission of being a “supra-national tax authority.”

iPhone 6 Plus Touch Disease

‘Bendgate’ strikes again, but this time it’s called Touch Disease

‘Bendgate’ strikes again, but this time it’s called Touch Disease

There’s a new issue affecting plenty of iPhone users, one that Apple is still keeping a tight lid on. Specifically, the “Touch Disease” is an iPhone 6 Plus condition that affects the phone’s TouchID sensor and the screen. Users report a flickering gray bar along the top of the screen and a faulty TouchID sensor. Apple doesn’t have a repair plan for the issue, which seems to be widespread and affecting mostly 5.5-inch devices. But third-party repair shops can fix the problem, and a report explains why it all happened. It appears that Bendgate problem Apple had to deal with soon after the iPhone 6 launched is back. More →
