Siri’s a little jealous of Scarlett Johansson in ‘Her’
Siri used to deliver some rather opinionated takes on sci-fi movies, and while those have largely been left behind it turns out the digital assistant has some strong feelings when it comes to Spike Jonze’s recent film Her.

Great quote from an interview with Megan Quinn in MIT’s The Tech.

This running shoe is made of protocells, a form of synthetic biology that behaves like living cells. In 2050, we might be popping our bio-shoes into a vat of liquid to regenerate overnight.

Facepalm: new program lands facial recognition software in cops’ hands
When San Diego police detain criminal suspects, they don’t only rely on Q&As to extract information about the person in cuffs. Using new facial recognition technology, San Diego police can now match field images with about 348,000 San Diego County arrestees — all they need is a tablet or a smartphone. In an in-depth report released yesterday, the Center for Investigative Reporting covered the new tech and its implications. “The little-known program could become the largest expansion of facial recognition technology by US law enforcement,” CIR says. “Amid an international debate over collecting and sharing huge amounts of data on the public, this pilot program is putting that metadata to use in the field in real time.”

A Pinball Machine That Is Controlled By Smiling 

To promote the “happy health insurance” of Swiss company KPT, the agency Webguerillas created a pinball machine which can be controlled by smiling. 

Using a face tracking algorithm, each end of a person’s smile controls the “fingers” on the pinball machine, making this game of pinball a lot more challenging and fun. 

This machine toured five cities around Switzerland, but for those who missed out, there is a website that allows you to try this out for yourself.
