LiShield Can Block Smartphone Cameras for Privacy’s Sake – IEEE Spectrum

Phttps://spectrum.ieee.org/tech-talk/consumer-electronics/audiovideo/lishield-can-block-smartphone-cameras-for-privacys-sake Rules that prohibit photos or videos can prove almost impossible to enforce when nearly everyone carries a smartphone. But a new indoor privacy system has shown how the power of smart LED lighting could prevent people from taking illegal videos of a live events. LiShield has a capability to corrupt digital camera images and videos without

Nobel Prize Awarded for Detection of Gravity Waves – IEEE Spectrum

https://spectrum.ieee.org/tech-talk/aerospace/astrophysics/nobel-prize-awarded-for-detection-of-gravity-waves  The three men who won this year’s Nobel Prize in physics helped prove Einstein correct by detecting gravitational waves from a pair of colliding black holes.  Rainer Weiss, Barry C. Barish and Kip S. Thorne were awarded for conceiving and creating the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory, or LIGO.  Just last week, a sister detector in Italy called Virgo

7 considerations to make when securing your Raspberry Pi

https://opensource.com/article/17/3/iot-security-raspberry-pi?sc_cid=7016000000127ECAAY The Raspberry Pi and many other inexpensive computer boards like it have become part of the “Internet of Things” or IoT revolution.  Because your Raspberry Pi is a Linux system, most advice for security on larger systems applies to your project, too.  Find out what sensible steps you can take to protect your Raspberry Pi

A Photon Has Been Sent To Space Using Quantum Teleportation | IFLScience

http://www.iflscience.com/physics/a-photon-has-been-sent-to-space-using-quantum-teleportation/ Last month, Chinese researchers showed that quantum communication between Earth and space is possible, and now they have used the tech to send a photon to space using quantum teleportation. As this research shows, to create a truly global network for quantum communication, we will need quantum satellites.
