Smart glasses give legally blind man second chance to see his wife at their wedding

TwitterFacebook

Andrew Airey married his wife almost 15 years ago, but recently he had a second wedding and this time he could see more of her face and even her wedding veil.

Airey lives with Stargardt’s disease, a form of macular degeneration, and his eyesight has deteriorated over the past 20 years. He’s legally blind, which has made life with his wife, Kelli, and their three daughters challenging in some ways. He said one of the biggest challenges is “not being able to see my wife’s facial expressions.” But a new device has changed that. Read more…

The leaked NSA report shows 2-factor authentication has a critical weakness: You

TwitterFacebook

So you’ve created a strong password, kept an eye out for sketchy links, and enabled two-factor authentication — what could possibly go wrong?

Well, it turns out the answer is “you.” 

As the leaked NSA report on Russian efforts to hack the computers of U.S. election officials before the 2016 presidential election demonstrates, we are all often our own biggest security weakness. The document, published by The Intercept, shows that hackers found a way around the protections offered by two-factor authentication that is striking in its simplicity: They asked the targets for their verification codes.  Read more…

10+ Men Before & After Shaving That You Won’t Believe Are The Same Person

Growing out a beard can dramatically change a man’s look, but shaving one off can be even more of a shock. Some say that beards make men’s faces look stronger and more masculine, while others argue that it all comes down to bone structure. We’re definitely not evolutionary scientists here at Bored Panda, but we’ve compiled some photos of guys before and after grabbing the razor, and we’d like to know which one you’d rather ride off into the sunset with.

Russell Westbrook goes back to where it all started in new Samsung ad

TwitterFacebook

Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook has had quite the season with his triple-double average in 2016-17. Although it wasn’t quite enough, as his team fell short against the Houston Rockets in the playoffs. 

In a new ad for Samsung titled Driven, Westbrook takes it back to where it all began, where he grew up in Los Angeles. The ad is of course littered with shots of Samsung products, but also heartfelt tidbits about the point guard’s life — like how much getting back to his roots matters. Read more…

Self-driving cars could create a massive new $7 trillion economy

TwitterFacebook

The race to create self-driving cars is on—but what happens when they’re everywhere and nobody has to drive?   

That could lead to a “passenger economy” worth $7 trillion by 2050, according to a new report by Intel and analyst firm Strategy Analytics.

While the name of the potential new market is lame, the amount of cash it’s estimated to drive is not: the study predicts self-driving cars will free up 250 million hours of commuting time per year, providing the backbone for a thriving $800 billion industry by 2035, when the study predicts fully autonomous vehicles will begin to proliferate globally.  Read more…
