In terms of ways to hack a computer, this is definitely a strange one! Called the DiskFiltration hack, security researchers have figured out a way to use the sounds of your computer’s hard drive to gather information.Read More
Researchers at Cornell University have developed a robot that is capable of accurately predicting when you need help, and providing assistance with tasks. Using a Kinect sensor, the robot uses a database of 120 videos to analyse and understand your movements. With this knowledge, it can then help you perform key tasks such as taking your medicine, making a meal, or stacking objects.
A team of researchers have designed a program that allows robots to actually evolve, building themselves out of cubes of virtual muscles and bones. This simulated chain of evolution makes for a remarkable discovery in robotics that, much like Skynet, has very well doomed us all.
A study conducted by Cornell University astronomers has concluded that Earth must have a second moon, calculated via counting the population of "irregular natural satellites that are temporarily captured by Earth." This has also been backed up by a sighting of one of these 'orbiters' by the Catalina Sky Survey in Arizona.
