Watch Series 6

It’s hard to believe we’re already up to Series 6 of the Apple Watch. Maybe it’s the subliminal effect of Apple’s “Time Flies” marketing, but it really does feel like only yesterday we were just getting our hands on the first Apple Watch. From its not-so-humble beginning as a cool-but-arguably-superfluous piece of tech to maybe the best smartwatch in the world, the Apple Watch has come a long way in a very short period of time.

So, what’s new with Series 6? Arguably the biggest enhancement of this year’s model is the always-on altimeter and

From House Beautiful

After leaving home, we’ve all had that moment of doubt when we wonder if we accidentally left the stove on or forgot to lock the door. Then we have to decide if it’s worth it to make the trip all the way back home to makes sure everything’s okay. Well, soon you’ll be able to check on the inside of your home without actually having to go home, thanks to Amazon’s newest Ring home security camera.

The Ring Always Home Cam is a flying indoor drone with a camera that lets users see what’s happening inside their home in real-time. It’s lightweight, and autonomously flies predetermined paths set by the user, meaning you’re not stuck with the one view you set the camera to before leaving home. It can also be used with the Ring Alarm to fly “appropriate paths” to check for disturbances

Fruit Flies Plug into the Matrix

Bugs and fish don’t play video games or attend teleconferences, but they can still explore virtual reality—complete with visual effects, tastes and smells. A new system called PiVR—named after the low-cost Raspberry Pi computer that runs its software—creates working artificial environments for small animals such as zebra fish larvae and fruit flies. Developers say the system’s affordability could help expand research into animal behavior.

PiVR’s purpose is not to get these creatures plugged into the Matrix. Rather it lets scientists measure an animal’s behavior in real time while it responds to a controlled environment. The technology both provides the environment and tracks the animal within it using cameras and other sensors. This approach is useful in experiments aiming to learn more about how an external stimulus spurs the brain to perform an action. “What the tracker allows us to do is know what the animal is currently doing and then

A security camera that flies around inside your house

CLOSE

Consumer drones are notorious for being hard to fly at first, before you learn what you’re doing, and the odds are, you will crash it. It’s not a question of if, but when.

So how about a drone that flies automatically, in the home as a roaming security camera? One the manufacturer promises won’t crash into a ceiling fan or a flower pot, because it has obstacle avoidance technology. And flies back into its cradle when the flight is complete.

Sounds pretty cool. But will it work?

Ring’s latest security camera is a drone that flies around inside your house

Ring latest home security camera is taking flight — literally. The new Always Home Cam is an autonomous drone that can fly around inside your home to give you a perspective of any room you want when you’re not home. Once it’s done flying, the Always Home Cam returns to its dock to charge its battery. It is expected to cost $249.99 when it starts shipping next year.

Jamie Siminoff, Ring’s founder and “chief inventor,” says the idea behind the Always Home Cam is to provide multiple viewpoints throughout the home without requiring the use of multiple cameras. In an interview ahead of the announcement, he said the company has spent the past two years on focused development of the device, and that it is an “obvious product that is very hard to build.” Thanks to advancements in drone technology, the company is able to make a product like this
