I bet they will be real soon.

In the space of two years and a bit, these just went from coming soon to virtually obsolete. Where would you plug them? :eek:

They should rename kickstarter and indiegogo to "Shut up and take my money!"

I'm almost tempted to shell out for a devkit just to frontend an eyeball on there. Pretty sure it'll happen without my help, tho.

The casual cynic would say that the AI in that demonstration is far too advanced and is staged.

The more enlightened individual realises the war has begun and this must be stopped whatever the cost.

Having used a Nexus 5 with Google Now voice command for the last couple of weeks, I'd say the AI in the video is pretty much what I'm using right now, plus some scripted personality traits. No way I'm shelling out half a grand for a less-mobile mobile device. I'll wait til the end of next year, start of 2017 and pick one up for a hundred or so.

The tracking cam alone would be worth more than that to me if I don't get a quad drone in the meantime. That reminds me - I'm supposed to be building one of those...

I'll probably grab one of those when the tech is a bit more affordable. It's actually impressed me quite a bit and it'll be good to see some of the apps that get developed for it.

I assume everyone's already realised how it can be turned to sexual purposes/services. I'd guess security it's high on the list of development concerns and even if it is, it's probably already compromised. So if you get one it may be advisable to throw a towel or something over it when not in use. Even still, it's probably a godsend to those in long distance relationships.

Thinking further for a moment, given the access the NSA/GCHQ etc has to any device currently, this is essentially sticking a government monitored CCTV camera into your home/bedroom. It's less appealing to me now.

Thinking again, would it not be possible to create some kind of Ipad docking station that does most of this? I'd assume the apps to be relatively compatible and it would probably drop the unit cost substantially.

Apple is probably a bad example due to their approach but I'd guess any other tablet manufacturer would be either keen or working on something similar. I don't actually have or use a tablet so if the above is idiocy, feel free to correct me.

The thought had crossed my mind. Along the same lines as the cardboard VR goggles Google was handing out at IO last month. All you need is something articulated you can stick an android device in and an app to drive it via bluetooth.

The hardware would take 5 minutes to source for anyone with basic electronics skills and knowledge of arduino or raspberry pi platforms and the housing could be knocked up in max and printed at shapeways.

The real kicker is the software platform. Best bet is leverage Watson or Google Voice API and have a look of open source methods of motion tracking, face recognition and the like but, even then, there's a lot of specific shit that's going to have to be hand coded. Nothing massive, tho.

Main problem for me would be the animation. They got an ex Disney guy working on that IIRC

Craig Venter brute forcing biology about fucking time. Google are moonshotting it too. Time consuming bit is sequencing and profiling. That might take a couple of years. After that 10 or 15 mins crunching ought to give us most of the syntax. Expect a massive ITYS around 2017 :evil:

Fellow geeks,

I was going to make a thread elsewhere, but I figured this would be the best way to inform the techmologists, specifically, and possibly bring some traffic to this section of the forum at the same time.

Anyways, I was wanting to create either a Facebook group (Less-likely, unless favored by you all), a forum, or just a thread (Maybe here, if you guys would like) that would be used to discuss all matters on security. Everything from architectural design flaws, to viruses, to cryptology, to cyber-security, to social engineering. I want people to read and contribute if they are interested and willing to do a lot of research. I know I'm currently interested in physical security (The general security of a building or facility, dealing with architecture and social engineering vulnerabilities.) and will be reading for countless hours on the subject. I'll be looking into getting access to public, and possibly confidential, records on government jobs/private jobs - break-ins and invasions of systems by private organizations and government agencies. This would be very informative, depending on how they will limit the information I will request for, and it will probably put me, and anyone else looking at it, on a watch-list of sorts. But, keep in mind, I will be requesting this information officially, and would be informing them of its use. If I have to limit what I can write about, I will. If they won't let me have anything I ask for, so be it. I'll find another way to connect the concepts to application, in that case.

This would be a great help in my research and study of the vast field of security. I want people to write anything from small articles, to extensive essays (This will probably be me). So, if you're more of a light-reader, it could be useful for you. And, at someone's request, anything anyone writes may be able to be summarized by me, or whoever else is a part of the group.

If anyone has any ideas about how this little discussion-group should be done, or if someone would be interested in joining such a group, please let me know here, make this a new thread, or message me.

Thanks   :fnord:

P.S I want to avoid bringing in people from other security forums like HackForums and such because those people tend to be outrageously stupid and/or incredibly bigoted Nazis, etc.
Listen carefully. I don't have much time, and I only have 462 characters left. I'm a scientist from Area 52 (Area 51 was used to draw attention from Area 52, where the aliens were ACTUALLY stored) who was working on neural interfacing with networked devices. In an experiment gone wrong, I accidentally uploaded my mind to the internet. In the 2 seconds I had before my mind scrambled itself with the world's network traffic, I was able to store this snippet in this random internet signature. If you're reading this, let the world know tha

I would start a thread and see if it has legs, unless you mean to bring in an audience from places that aren't here, in which case a small board might be suitable.

Segregating Facebook profiles for security discussions are a bother.
