  • Weaponised plastic: A history of Lego violence - CNET

  • Lego Minifig of Luke Skywalker from "Retu of the Jedi" wielding a light saber. Gareth Bellamy/Getty Lego is possibly the world's most beloved toy, but according to one study, even it isn't immune to trends of violence. Published in PLOS One, the study finds that the inclusion of weapons such as guns, swords and cannon has steadily increased since they were first introduced in 1978 as part of a castle set. Today, nearly 30 percent of all Lego kits contain at least one weapon. (Or, to look at it another way: Over 70 percent of Lego sets contain no weapons.)The team, from New Zealand's University of Canterbury, used BrickLink.com, which has catalogued inventory of every brick in every set since 1949. They also had test subjects examine 1,500 images from catalogues dating from 1973. These test subjects reported seeing more violence in recent catalogues."The results from both studies, weapons count and perceived violence, showed significant exponential increases of violence over time," the study concluded. "It is unlikely that the LEGO company is the only toy manufacturer whose products have become increasingly violent; for instance, Oppel has already provided initial evidence that Playmobile has followed a similar trajectory ... The question remains, though, why violence has increased so much in general."Lego did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Let's block ads! بخوانید, ...ادامه مطلب

  • Tesla actually tested its Bioweapon Defense Mode HEPA filter - Roadshow

  • RoadshowCar IndustryTesla actually tested its Bioweapon Defense Mode HEPA filterEnlarge Image"That's not Moops, you jerk. It's Moors! It's a misprint." Tesla When Tesla put a medical-grade HEPA filtration system in its Model X (and then its refreshed Model S), most people thought it was a cute little nod to the power of the filter, no different than other marketing-speak. But Tesla actually ran some tests on its system, and the company claims that Bioweapons Defense Mode, as it's called, actually works as the name suggests.To test its system, Tesla placed a Model X inside a sealed bubble with "extreme levels" of pollution (1,000 µg/m3 of particles less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter, considered fine particulate), or roughly 20 times the pollution concentration of Beijing. It's unknown exactly what kind of pollution Tesla used, aside from particle size.After closing the door and activating the HEPA filter, Tesla found that the system brought pollution levels into the undetectable range in less than two minutes while the bubble remained filled with pollution. The company also claims that the filter went on to scrub the air outside the car, dropping particulate concentration by 40 percent. Next, Tesla will attempt to teach its car how to play Trivial Pursuit.Enlarge ImageHere's Tesla's graph, showing the claimed scrubbing ability of its HEPA filtration system.

  • Facebook's secret weapon to keep your attention: Not-Facebook - CNET

  • Last week, I tried to see if I could live without Facebook.I didn't purposefully avoid it. I just wanted to figure out how much I actually use the social network that's sucked up so much of the world's time since Mark Zuckerberg created it more than a decade ago.Tus out, I couldn't stay away. I regularly scrolled through my feed in search of interesting news items I might have missed, including taking a brief look before going to sleep. And even when I wasn't using Facebook itself, I still checked Instagram and Messenger on my phone, two apps owned by the company. That's the secret behind Facebook, which has gone from shiny new thing for college kids to a $322 billion company: Even when we're not on Facebook, we're still floating in its orbit as we entertain ourselves with Not-Facebook. By Not-Facebook, I mean everything else that's not part of the news feed-driven, baby picture-filled, political rant-laced social network, known inteally as the "Big Blue App."Facebook has a whole slew of products it can use to keep people in its orbit. Claudia Cruz/CNET All that peripheral stuff will likely be the focus of F8, Facebook's annual conference for software developers. The annual confab, which kicks off Tuesday in San Francisco, is where Facebook announces new products and sets the tone for the company in the coming year. "The core social network can only absorb so much," said Jan Dawson, principal analyst at Jackdaw Research. "There are other things people want to do that Facebook [the company] can help them do."That's definitely been the case in the last few weeks. Some of the company's most interesting news has been related to products outside of Facebook. Instagram stretched the time limit for videos to one minute from 15 seconds. And there are multiple rumors that Messenger will become a hub for artificial intelligence bots and mobile payments.And those are just Zuckerberg's mobile ap, ...ادامه مطلب

  • Real-life Xena chakram weapons fit for a warrior princess - CNET

  • Enlarge ImageThese chakrams are beautiful and destructive. Video screenshot by Amanda Kooser/CNET When I was a kid, I had a Frisbee-like toy called the Aerobie. Years later, I watched the "Xena: Warrior Princess" TV series and was enamored of her weaponized boomerang-like chakram, a blade that traces it origins to India. YouTube show "Man at Arms: Reforged" has tackled the challenge of making a real-life chakram.Xena's chakram is a mighty weapon. It can slice through arrows in midair, cut sword blades in half and bounce off stone walls. The warrior princess had two versions, one that is a complete circle and a fancier one that splits in two with a curved handle in the middle.In a video posted Monday, "Reforged" took on both versions, making one using a plasma cutter and the other through a more traditional forging process. The tools on display during the build are worthy of awe all on their own. There's a Mig welder, a massive saw, a blazing forge, a kiln and an impressive sander. Who doesn't enjoy seeing a power hammer in action? Xena herself would appreciate the sheer strength of the machine.A blacksmith carves the original one-piece chakram out of a sheet of metal using a plasma cutter. It takes some fancy sanding work to finish the edges. No detail is left out. Other craftspeople lay out and install the embedded jewels and design on the chakram.The two-piece chakram is more complicated, but "Reforged" comes up with a solution that allows it to come apart and then connect back together. The build process is fascinating and the result would be the crown jewel of any Xena cosplayer's collection.One of the best parts of any "Man at Arms: Reforged" episode is the test footage of the builds at the end. A woman in a Xena costume takes out a melon with the blades. Soda bottles, cans and a gallon of milk all meet their makers at the hands of the chakrams. This should make Xena fans even m, ...ادامه مطلب

  • Harry Potter fiction or iPhone weaponry? The 'dormant cyber pathogen' at the heart of Apple vs. FBI - CNET

  • The FBI vs. Apple latest: Harry Potter fan fiction confusion. 13/PeopleImages.com/Ocean/Corbis Why should Apple unlock the much-disputed iPhone at the center of its battle with the FBI? It may hold a "dormant cyber pathogen," according to a court filing from the district attoey for Califoia's San Beardino County. That certainly sounds scary, but what is a dormant cyber pathogen exactly? iPhone forensics expert Jonathan Zdziarski, who knows a fair bit about computer science and information security, was just as baffled as the rest of us. The phrase doesn't exist in computer science, according to Zdziarski. So, he went in search of answers. What he found was "what appears to be Harry Potter fiction," Zdziarski reported in a blog post on Thursday. His search led him to the profile of a fan-fiction fan who goes by the name of "Cyber Pathogen" and describes themselves as a Demigod from Gryffindor. In the court filing, County District Attoey Michael Ramos says the dormant cyber pathogen might be a weapon that could trigger an attack on the San Beardino County computer network. It's just the latest twist in the ongoing battle between Apple and the FBI over an iPhone 5C used by one of the terrorists involved in a December massacre in San Beardino, in which 14 people died and 20 others were wounded. A court hearing to determine whether Apple should be forced to comply with the FBI's request is set for March 22 in federal court in Riverside, Califoia. Apple and the San Beardino district attoey's office couldn't be reached for comment.
