“Doctors could soon prescribe sex robots to patients with sexual dysfunction,” said Dr. Marianne Brandon at the Applied Evolutionary Psychology Society’s Mental Health Symposium. Sex robots could help patients with sexual dysfunction meet their needs, she mentions in her presentation and is soon to add that they could also gravely hamper social relationships. People who do use sex robots could endanger their intimate relationship with their partner and it could also affect the entire society in the long run. In her presentatio...

Reddit on Monday night launched a bizarre subdomain called “newsbyAI” where it plans to be posting fake news articles written by sophisticated artificial intelligence algorithms. The AI-written articles, which read almost like the real thing, will cover information from business reporting to celebrity gossip. This is another practical illustration that artificial intelligence can effectively be used to spread convincing propaganda and fake news online. So far, nearly all the articles shared on the subreddit page newsbyAI are written...
Becoming a passenger on NASA’s spacecraft is like passing a camel through the eye of a needle. To be fair enough, it’s actually more difficult than getting into Harvard. But that concept will soon become obsolete; at least some rich people that can cough out tens of millions of dollars for a special vacation will be able to buy a ticket for Space tourism. NASA on Friday announced it would allow regular citizens (not certified astronauts) to fly to the International Space Station – the only existing extraterrestrial home – if not ma...
Headphone lovers prioritize some exceptional qualities while looking out for a headphone. They include the headphone’s ability to pair quickly, sound quality, battery life and how comfortable it feels on the ears. Apple showed no compromise in trying to satisfy those obsessed with quality headphones and the company has proved a point with Apple Powerbeat Pro – it's first ever product since acquiring Beats by Dre in late 2014. Apple designed this new Powerbeats Pro as an upgrade of the Beats by Dre on two basic features: sound and c...
Scientists have, for the past two decades, debated the practicality of a hypothetical engine called EmDrive that would require no form of fuel to propel a spacecraft. That sounds quite out-of-science, right? Of course, a working EmDrive would cancel one of the fundamental laws of physics. However, this anomaly hasn’t discouraged scientists. Many top research organizations, including DARPA and the Advanced Propulsion Physics Laboratory of NASA, are busy in their labs pursuing this course because a breakthrough would be completely extra...
Apple always has some tricks up its sleeve for its annual WWDC. This time it was the Apple monitor stand that costs $1000. The one launch that got people talking after this year’s WWDC was not the latest iOS 13 or the stunning Mac Pro Display XDR, it was a monitor stand that costs as much as the Apple XS. The monitor stand officially called the Apple pro stand, isn’t coated in gold or any kind of jewels nor does it have a ground-breaking new-age technology. It’s just a monitor stand required to hold a computer monitor at place. Th...
Nintendo in today’s Direct presentation revealed more information about its upcoming RPG games: Pokémon Sword & Shield, including the release date. It’s now official and quite uncanny for gamers, the Pokémon Sword & Shield release date is in November, in between the window Hideo Kojima gave us for the long-awaited Death Stranding and the very first single-player Star Wars releases. Considering the time-frame people could allot for a particular game, nailing it right would require some level of concentration at least for a few...
The impact of technology on the way we live would never be easy to explain, with the most influential aspect being the internet. Until now, we generally have no recognition for any negative effects. Most of us think it only has to do with the distractions or the amount of time we spend using the internet, while others have accepted it’s not ideal to stare at a screen all day. A new study may have found something more troubling – the internet is killing your memory. A group of scientists from America, Australia, and Europe has found t...
Google has filed an appeal against the $1.7 billion (€1.49 billion) fine slapped on it by the European Commission as an antitrust penalty for stifling competition in the online advertising industry. The Telegraph reported late Tuesday that Google lodged the appeal in the General Court of the European Union in Brussels. A Google spokesperson confirmed on Wednesday that the appeal has been filed but declined to comment further. A third antitrust fine of $1.7BN was slapped on Google by the executive arm of the European Union three month...
