This bike light harnesses AI for safer rides

There are many different bike lights available out on the market. But we can’t say there are that many powered by artificial intelligence. Enter this new Kickstarter project from See.Sense. Called the Ace, this new bicycle light that makes use of AI to make sure you’re visible at any time of the day. It gets even brighter when you approach things like junctions, roundabouts, and oncoming cars. With a 150 lumen bulb in front and a 125 lumen bulb at the back, this is meant to be seen from more than a mile away. And with a 200-degree lens, it’s also meant to be seen from the side. You don’t have to worry about biking in the rain as the Ace is IP67-rated for water-resistance. The light can run around 10 hours between charges and has its own smart battery management system. It can detect when you’re done riding or left your bike and turn the lights off.

If you use the accompanying See.Sense app, you can get things like crash and theft alerts as well as custom flash patterns. The project has already met its goal and if you’re interested in getting your hands on one, you just need to pay £44 (around CA$73) for a set of front and back lights. The product is expected to ship starting June 2018.

Google WiFi is already one of the most powerful and innovative MESH router systems and it just got better specially for families of young children. A recent update enables blocking websites with violent or suggestive content. The update also adds the ability to add Scheduled Pauses for bedtime and distraction-free moments (meals, homework time). 

Google Wifi’s site blocking feature can automatically block millions of sexually explicit websites from your kids’ devices with Google’s SafeSearch technology.

Hands on with Microsoft 'Mixed Reality'

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

I recently tried Microsoft's new 'Mixed Reality' experience which was demoed with Acer's new headset and hand controller which was connected to a gaming notebook. 

Windows Mixed Reality capabilities are coming to Windows 10 Fall Creators update, but you need to be running a 7th generation Intel Core processor at the very minimum, which means most Windows users will likely need to upgrade to be able to take advantage of this feature.
