Un «mode sommeil» pour nos écrans
La lumière bleue émise par nos écrans dérègle nos cycles veille/sommeil et nos rythmes biologiques. Faudrait-il développer un mode sommeil pour nos écrans?

How smartphones offer Syrian refugees a lifeline
Screen Shot 2015-11-28 at 08.11.07.pngThe proliferation of smartphones adds a wrinkle to one of the worst refugee crises in recent history, with more than 4 million citizens fleeing the civil war in Syria since 2011. Refugees are no longer completely helpless or lost, with the mobile device serving as their lifeline to family and support organizations. [via C/net]

It also makes refugees better able to help themselves.quotesmarksleft.jpg

Nike’s COO thinks we could soon 3D print Nike sneakers at home
Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 09.23.27.png Eric Sprunk, Nike’s COO, talked about the innovation in Nike’s Flyknit technology and what it suggests about the way sneakers could be made in the future. Based on what Nike is already doing with Flyknit, Sprunk says the ability for consumers to 3D print a pair of sneakers is close at hand. [via Quartz]

quotemarksright.jpgThe way it might work goes something like this: You could head to Nike’s website, customize a sneaker to your specifications, and buy a file containing the instructions for the 3D printer. If you have a printer at home, you could print it yourself and have a new pair of sneakers in a matter of hours. If you don’t, you could take the file to a Nike store and have them print it for you.quotesmarksleft.jpg

DJI announces agricultural drone designed to spray crops
Screen Shot 2015-11-27 at 09.11.26.png

DJI's latest model, an eight-rotor Agras MG-1 is designed for spraying crops, with the ability to cover between seven and ten acres an hour and a tank that holds 10 liters (about 2.6 gallons) of liquid. [via The Verge]

quotemarksright.jpgDJI says the Agras is over 40 times more efficient than manual spraying. Using a microwave radar, the drone can scan the ground below and maintain the right distance from crops to spray the correct amount of liquid. It flies up to eight meters per second, modulating its spraying for even coverage. It can be used in automatic, semi-automatic, or manual operation, and is designed for durability with dustproofing, water resistance, and an anti-corrosive build. The Agras also folds down into a compact package after use.

DJI is launching it in China and Korea at first, with availability in other markets to follow.quotesmarksleft.jpg
