The Geniuses at MIT Created a Wi-Fi That’s So High-Tech It Doesn’t Need a Password

Last week I went to a cafe to work. When I asked the waitress for the wireless password, she couldn’t remember it. I watched as she went back to the counter and shuffled through some sticky notes until she landed on the right one. After a few minutes, she came back over and recited it to me. It then took me several tries to get the right combination of lower and uppercase letters in order to give me entry to the restaurant’s wireless network. It was an unnecessarily painful process, as it often is when connecting to Wi-Fi in a new place. 

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology want to change how we connect to Wi-Fi. To avoid the cumbersome network login process, a team has come up with a way to grant computers access to a Wi-Fi network based on their proximity to a router. 

Applied practically, that means you could walk into a cafe and your device would automatically connect to a network — no annoying password necessary. The same could be true for a home network. When your friends come over, they could immediately be granted access to your Wi-Fi.

The Groups Anonymous Inspired Are More Powerful Than Anonymous Ever Was

Anonymous’ latest exploits haven’t been impressive. 

It went after the Klu Klux Klan, but produced only a dubious list of alleged Klansmen. It went after Donald Trump, exposing some basic personal information and doing absolutely nothing to his campaign. 

The age of Anonymous, the years it was known for exposing institutional corruption and taking down major government websites, might well be over.

But Anonymous’ influence reaches far beyond its own operations. The secretive hacktivist group inspired a generation of antisocial, home-grown rebels ready to wreak havoc in the name of whatever cause is conveniently in reach.

Hackers Held Kentucky Hospital Hostage for Five Days and Walked Away With Nothing

Hospitals are full of old tech — clacking keyboards, dated operating systems, pagers — essential to saving lives and keeping people safe. Those high stakes make them easy hostages.

A tiny virus spread through the computer systems at Methodist Hospital in Henderson, Kentucky, on Friday, after sneaking in via a spam email. The hackers behind the attack demanded four bitcoin, or about $1,670 at time of writing, to be securely transferred before they’d give the hospital control over their own information.

Instead, the hospital decided to lock its systems down and fight the virus, posting this notice to its site:

“Methodist Hospital is currently working in an Internal State of Emergency due to a Computer Virus that has limited our use of electronic web based services.  We are currently working to resolve this issue, until then we will have limited access to web based services and electronic communications.”

Finally, on Tuesday morning, Methodist Hospital reported that it had successfully fended off the attack without paying a dime.

3-D Printed Robots Are Getting Solid and Liquid Insides Thanks to Scientists at MIT

.

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, or CSAIL, have developed a technique that allows for them to 3-D print robots with both solid and liquid materials. “Printable hydraulics” is a breakthrough in 3-D printing because it sets a precedent for functional machines that don’t require extra assembly, which is great news for lazy people yearning for the day that robots can do their chores anyone who needs a robot to complete a complex task.

“All you have to do is stick in a battery and motor, and you have a robot that can practically walk right out of the printer,” Daniela Rus, director of CSAIL and one of the co-authors of the study, said.

Adam Conner-Simons explains that liquids were a “big hurdle” when it came to 3-D printing. “Printing liquids is a messy process, which means that most…

This Ridiculous VR Experiment Might Make You Poop Your Pants in Terror

People have wept, nearly puked and now they may shit their pants for the sake of virtual reality. 

Gaming company Bandai Namco is opening up a virtual reality arcade center in Tokyo from April through October, according to VR Scout. It’s hoping to lure in human guinea pigs to test out the HTC Vive virtual reality system and Bandai Namco games, one of which looks especially terrifying.

In a teaser video for one of the HTC Vive experiences, Fear of Heights Show, users have to rescue a cat on a wooden plank 60 stories above the ground. The promo video itself may be dramatized, but the premise definitely has pants-shitting potential.

Lifeline Could Revolutionize Welfare and Bring Wi-Fi to the People — But It’s Not Enough

Bridgid Skiba walks through San Francisco, searching for some goddamn Wi-Fi so she can get her homework done. Her phone outstretched, she scans for signals like a metal detector, flying through lists of home networks to find one an unsuspecting family forgot to lock. Finally, standing on the sidewalk, she spots some public Wi-Fi. She stops, sits down right where she is, crosses her legs and starts her homework.

Skiba is 53 years old. She was an EMT for nearly two decades before California Pacific Medical Center let her go in a massive round of layoffs, leaving her in need of a sudden career shift, with an education to match. Now she’s studying computer science and engineering at the City College of San Francisco. Everything she needs to pass a class — her syllabi, quizzes, reviews and handouts — is accessible only through a web portal.

These Tiny Robots Swimming in Your Blood Are Going to Save Your Life

Researchers have tricked cancer cells into eating balls full of poison, killing the cells and effectively treating breast cancer in a bunch of mice, says a new report in the journal Nature, published March 14. These miracle balls are called nanoparticles, and they could be the key to finding, diagnosing and treating a number of illnesses in the future — once we figure out how to make them do their jobs.

Think of nanoparticles as little delivery trucks. They can be loaded with almost anything from a medical lab — medicine, fluorescent agents or, in this case, poison. But these delivery trucks are tiny. 

Actually, tiny isn’t the right word. The screws on your glasses are tiny. The pebbles that get stuck in your shoes are tiny. A grain of sand (the poster child of tiny) is still 5,000 times bigger than the largest nanoparticle.
