    Telepresence Robot 2000 Leagues Under the Sea 

    Telepresence robots are now a reality, you can wheel around the office and talk to people, join a meeting, see stuff and bump into your colleagues. But imagine if telepresence were applied to deep sea exploration. Today we can become oceanographers through the telepresence system created by Bob Ballard (known for locating the Titanic, discovered deep sea geothermal vents, and more) and his team at the Inner Space Center. Put on your Submariner wristwatch because its time for all of us to explore the ocean depths via the comfort of our home or office.

    How Deep Sea Telepresence Works

    Bob Ballard and his team have created a deep sea telepresence exploration system. This system consists of the Exploration Vehicle (E/V) Nautilus operating as the

    Building a DEF CON Badge in Two Weeks 

    DEF CON is starting right now, and this is the year of #badgelife. For the last few years, independent hardware wizards have been creating and selling their own unofficial badges at DEF CON, but this year it’s off the charts. We’ve already taken a look at Bender Badges, BSD Puffer Fish, and the worst idea for a conference badge ever, and this is only scratching the surface.

    This is also a banner year for the Hackaday / Tindie / Supplyframe family at DEF CON. We’re on the lookout for hardware. We’re sponsoring the IoT village,

    Why Your Kid's Brain Is Hooked on Surprise Egg and Slime Videos

    My four-year-old daughter enjoys watching some great kids’ shows including Noddy Toyland Detective, Ruby’s Studio, Julie’s Greenroom, and so much Daniel Tiger, but once in a while, she’ll ask to watch YouTube on the iPad or phone, and when I oblige, she smiles and gets this sneaky-looking glimmer in her eye. Uh oh, I’ll think. Where is this going today?

    The world of YouTube content for kids is like a bizarro abyss

    Now Getting Lost Items Back From Uber Could Cost You $15 

    Image credit: Pexels

    Next time you leave your umbrella, book bag, or phone in an Uber it could cost you $15 to get it back. Starting today, the ride-sharing company is allowing drivers nationwide to charge a flat fee for bringing your missing items back to you.

    A few years ago my friend Bob left his phone in an Uber we shared after a Giants game. We realized the error, got in touch with Uber who connected us with the driver, and a few hours later were reunited with our old driver and Bob’s phone. We tipped the driver close to $100 for the return. New phones are expensive, and we recognized that the time he spent coordinating and making a drop-off with us was time he wasn’t spending working. As it turns out, we were in the minority.


    Most people don’t take the driver into consideration when asking for an item to be returned. While the driver is a contractor with Uber, they’re not an employee, which means when they’re delivering your item back that’s essentially a personal trip for them. You’re preventing them from picking up other fares and asking them to spend their time and gas money to do you, a person whom they just met for 10 minutes, a favor. It’s a big of a big ask for a stranger.

    Driver’s forums are littered with reports of people like us requesting the return of lost items, and when they’re returned not even offering so much as a

    Make a Safety Plan Before You Panic in a Crowd 

    Photo by Amy West

    If you get panicked by crowds, you might not even know it. You might just tense up or get angry. (I got snippy at the farmers market for years before I noticed the pattern.) And certain crowded spots, like Times Square or an emptying stadium, can freak anyone out. As Dr. Liz Lasky says in Time Out New York, it helps to have a safety plan.

    One basic way to cut through a crowd is to keep your eyes on your destination. That signals your path to others and helps you focus on the goal rather than the obstacles.

    Would You Let Your Teenager Have Sex in Your House?   

    when heat, hormones and boredom lead to bad decisions. This month, four teens were arrested for allegedly having sex on a beach in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The sun was out, and the shore was filled with families not expecting, um, that type of view. Onlookers called the public display
