Kinoma Create: JavaScript-Powered IoT Construction Kit

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSWhile at SXSW, I got a chance to talk with Andy Carle, Ph.D. about Marvell’s Kinoma Create. This is a device that allows you to create and learn hardware and software through the “Internet of Things” (IoT). We stood in front of a Labyrinth as Andy controlled the marble using the Kinoma. This device does a lot more than that. You can learn how to create and setup many different things. We saw a LED light change colors with the interface and a basic Red Blue Green toggle. Another Kinoma was set up to unlock a door. Sensors attached to another Kinoma could tell the temperature and time. The Kinoma create comes with a capacitive touchscreen, Wifi, Bluetooth, speaker and microphone unit, USB, micro SD card, battery compartment (AA Batteries) and a serial console port. Projects are found through Kinoma, or independent...

HERO4 Black from GoPro: Record 4K or 1080p 120fps

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSIt’s been an awesome time here in Vegas – I’ve been covering a conference and during the down time I’ve been playing with this – the GoPro HERO4 Black edition. This is the newest GoPro camera for live action recording. You might have seen skydivers, skateboarders, custom car owners, and other groups create some awesome video and this little device is ususally taking the video. As you can see, its a little larger than a box of Tictacs – with the waterproof case you could easily fit it in your pocket ready for any life moment to happen. There are three buttons on the HERO4 – a power button, shutter button and settings button. Each button has multiple options so you can create video, take stills or continuous shots. The best part is the quality of the HERO4. This camera can take...

DJI Phantom II Drone: How to Assemble and First Flight

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSWhile in Vegas last week I became a proud owner of a DJI Phantom II quadro-copter drone. An amazing and stable flying unit which can be moved around using a remote controller. Today, the weather was nice enough to really take this for a spin. About the DJI Phantom II I have been excited to use one of these ever since I saw it at NAB and talked with Willis from DJI. The Phantom II is a RC copter that can run for 25 minutes on a fully charged LiIon 5200mAh battery. The 4-blade copter allows for stabilization and can become very static in mid-air. The Phantom II weighs only 2.2 lbs with battery and no gimble. I would expect with a GoPro attached the weight is more toward 2.5 lbs. The controller operates on a WiFi signal – either 2.4 or...

LiveU has been giving us ways to stream video to a streaming service or back to the station for live coverage.

Ford announces Intelligent WiFi Vehicles

WiFi can save your life. Ford announced they have created intelligent vehicles that are talking to their surroundings. The idea is when one car is approaching too fast, your car can warn you and slow down. If a car breaks down, it sends a signal so the other cars are warned. “Ford believes intelligent vehicles that talk to each other through advanced Wi-Fi are the next frontier of collision avoidance innovations that could revolutionize the driving experience and hold the potential of helping reduce many crashes,” said Sue Cache, group vice president, Sustainability, Environment and Safety Engineering. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported on the benefits of vehicle-to0-vehicle communications. There are over four million fender-benders a year. This technology could decrease that and maybe even a few major accidents. Or better yet, you car just says “There is an accident up ahead. Take this other route…”...

Firesheep:  Security Exploit as Firefox Plugin

Firesheep: Security Exploit as Firefox Plugin

Now anyone can have L33t HaX0r skilz. A Firefox extension called “Firesheep” automates hacking your wi-fi connection if you are using public wi-fi. Here’s an excerpt from the Guardian’s report: Firesheep, though, has an easy-to-use interface and, perhaps most importantly, a cute name. Surely this can’t be a “cracking tool”? It wasn’t released by someone going by a name like ‘dEvILSp0RN42’. It doesn’t feature white text on a black background. It has well-thought-out and literate documentation. To use it, you simply install it into Firefox and click a few buttons. One minor additional step, installing WinPcap, is required for Windows users. You can watch a demo on YouTube (I was unable to embed the video).

Google Gobbles Wi-Fi Data 0

Google Gobbles Wi-Fi Data

The street view cars not only shoot the street scene, they turn out the be scene stealers. The BBC reports that a German government audit of data collected by Google’s street view cars revealed that some of the software used in collecting street view data has been grabbing payload data from open wireless networks for three years. Google claims it was inadvertent: Google said the problem dated back to 2006 when “an engineer working on an experimental wi-fi project wrote a piece of code that sampled all categories of publicly broadcast wi-fi data”. That code was included in the software the Street View cars used and “quite simply, it was a mistake”, said Mr Eustace. “This incident highlights just how publicly accessible, open, non-password protected wi-fi networks are today.” Dan Kaminsky, director of penetration testing for security firm Ioactive, said there was no intent by Google. At this...
