This Mega-Sensor Makes the Whole Room Smart
Researchers combined a bunch of different sensors into one small device that can monitor all kinds of activities.
Gierad Laput wants to make homes smarter without forcing you to buy a bunch of sensor-laden, Internet-connected appliances. Instead, he’s come up with a way to combine a slew of sensors into a device about the size of a Saltine that plugs into a wall outlet and can monitor many things in the room, from a tea kettle to a paper towel dispenser.
While it’s not yet a consumer smart-home device, it was pretty accurate in his initial tests. His team is now stress-testing the 100 units manufactured so far. Laput says they cost about $100 apiece to make right now, but he thinks that could be cut to about $30 if they were manufactured in high volume.

This robot surveillance ball can roll on any terrain — it can even swim
Guardbot is an amphibious, surveillance robot that can roll on any terrain, including snow, sand, and dirt.
It's fitted with two cameras, microphones and GPS, allowing it to be controlled remotely or via satellites.
The military is looking into possibly using Guardbot in future operations.
Guardbot is still under development, but it could cost as much as $100,000.

The site was affected just before the beginning of the opening ceremony in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
TV and internet systems at the Games were also disrupted, though operations were restored about 12 hours later.
However, a spokesman said that the International Olympic Committee would not be commenting on who might have been behind the incident.
But the Russian Foreign Ministry has denied rumors that Russian hackers were involved.
