RoboEarth. No, it’s not a lame SNES game from 1994, it’s a cloud network that lets robots learn from the actions of other bots. It started over three years ago, and now, a new, related project has sprung from that initiative at the Institute for Artificial Intelligence at the University of Bremen in Germany. Called RoboHow, it seeks to translate info on the web meant for human consumption into something our electromechanical helpers can understand. Imagine a future in which you ask your house robot to whip you up something new for dinner; RoboHow would ingest your chosen recipes from Epicurious and turn them into instructions said bot can execute.

The first Halo game for the next-generation Xbox One will come out in fall 2015, Microsoft announced Friday morning.

Halo 5: Guardians is a larger effort than Halo 4, the game’s developer wrote in an Xbox Wire blog post.

“That applies to the content and scope of the game, as well as the technology in what’s now a brand new and more powerful engine,” wrote Bonnie Ross, general manager of 343 Industries.

Scared of flying? Then you might not like the airplanes of the future.

Sure there are some terrifying-sounding features (transparent cabins and harvesting body heat) in the proposed designs for future planes, but the decisions to go greener are all ideas we can get behind.

Self-Driving Car Test: Steve Mahan

We announced our self-driving car project in 2010 to make driving safer, more enjoyable, and more efficient. Having safely completed over 200,000 miles of computer-led driving, we wanted to share one of our favorite moments. Here’s Steve, who joined us for a special drive on a carefully programmed route to experience being behind the wheel in a whole new way. We organized this test as a technical experiment, but we think it’s also a promising look at what autonomous technology may one day deliver if rigorous technology and safety standards can be met.

You. Yes You. Here’s How You Should Be Holding Your Phone

Attention all amateur videographers: For the love of all that is good and holy, please hold your phone horizontally when you’re shooting a video. Take a second and read that sentence again, just to make sure you understand.

We think it’s a simple concept, but people get it wrong again and again. Everything from big screen blockbusters to viral Youtube videos are presented in a format that is wider than it is long. When you hold your phone upright, you cut out of the video everything that happening to left and right of your subject.
