Know when people or pets are coming, going, getting into things they shouldn’t, or even when your mail is being delivered! You think the likes of Nest would be able to deal with all this right? This product helps facilitate with that. OK well, what about if your window gets opened and it’s out of sight? What about finding out the temperature in other rooms apart from the one with a thermostat in it? Even more important, what about a leak happening in your house while you’re out? Notion sensors can help with ALL of these problems.

Apple introduced Portrait Mode awhile back utilizing the dual lenses on their plus model phones to map depth in an image and blur out the background, creating the effect of a fast lens with the aperture wide open. With both the iPhone 8+ and the iPhone X on iOS 11 the depth data from portrait mode images is available to developers. Within Apple’s own Photos app this enables a new set of effects called Portrait Lighting to create dramatic, theatric or studio-like images. Third parties, however, are just beginning to tap in to the depth API to offer intriguing options for image editing. While Infltr simply allows you to filter and edit the foreground and background of an image separately, Focos let’s you choose exactly which parts of the image you want in focus and for those that blur out there’s extensive control for the blur effect.

If you’re sober, pregnant or otherwise unable or unwilling to consume alcohol, you can still enjoy whatever cocktails you crave with a high-tech drinking glass that simulates three layers of senses to trick you into tasting flavors that aren’t really there. Invented by Nimesha Ranasinghe, the ‘Vocktail’ or ‘virtual cocktail’ glass can either augment the ingredients of your choice to make your real cocktail more complex, or make a glass of plain water taste like expensive scotch.

Google today announced it’s bringing a new look to Maps. The new experience has brighter colors, clearer icons and an overall improved user experience.

Over the next few weeks users will be introduced to new color keys and icons depending on the category, such as orange for food and drink and pink for health. This comes as an upgrade to the old design, where it was easy to mix things up as icons were small and similar in color.

The idea is that now users can easily spot what they’re looking for. For example, if you’re out of town and have an accident, you can quickly spot a pink icon on the map and get to hospital.

Photographer Elsa Bleda captures hazy moments that linger on the outskirts of the cities she visits in Eastern Europe and South Africa. Bleda is drawn to nighttime scenes bathed in colored light, such as a flock of pigeons illuminated by pink neon, or a lone gas station emitting an eerie blue glow. The images she chooses to shoot also have a limited human presence, which gives a dystopian feeling to the work’s empty streets and snow-covered buildings.

Eleven light-years away, an Earth-sized world orbits a cool, red star, and it may be just right for life.

The planet, known as Ross 128b, completes an orbit of its star, Ross 128, about once every 10 days, according to new research published in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics. 

While a 10-day orbit might bake a world around a sun-like star, Ross 128 isn’t at all like the sun. 

The relatively nearby red dwarf star is small and cool, so Ross 128b’s 10-day orbit could actually make it ideal for life to develop.

US regulators have approved the first pill that can be digitally tracked through the body.

The Abilify MyCite aripiprazole tablets – for treating schizophrenia and manic episodes – have an ingestible sensor embedded inside them that records that the medication has been taken.

A patch worn by the patient transmits this information to their smartphone.

The information can also be sent to the prescribing doctor, if the patient consents to this.

a concept store has been brought to life in croatia’s design district, zagreb, with the help of architectural office BIRO, proposing a new kind of consumption inspired by the ‘slow movement’. garderoba – which means wardrobe in croation – encourages visitors to look through lookbooks, try on clothes, take a drink, and consult with the in-house stylist, spending more time in-store and creating an altogether more relaxing retail interior experience.

MAD has built a cluster of housing towers in China’s Anhui province, which take their forms from the granite contours of the Huangshan mountain range.

Ten housing blocks make up MAD’s Huangshan Mountain Village. The floorplates of each one decrease in scale towards the summit, tapering to create a peak-like formation along the edge of Taiping Lake.

YouTube is killing off links that pop up midway through videos.

Clips on the site will stop displaying the notifications, which appear in an interactive bar and promote live streams, playlists and other videos, from 14 December.

Though they serve a purpose for video creators, they can be very annoying for viewers.

“Millennials” is not a term we like, but it has become an easy shorthand for the audience that came of age in the smartphone era.  As a collective, they are better connected than any group before them and have choice at their fingertips. It’s their native understanding of this new two-way information channel that separates them from their forebears.

More importantly, UK dining-out expenditure by 18- to 30-year-olds is already worth £27bn annually – 30% of total spend.  So it’s important for businesses looking for brand advantage to get their approach to this growing generation right.
