3D Printed Moon Light Lamp Looks Like the Moon

· Bryan Chaffin · Cool Stuff Found

I’m newly obsessed with the Moon Light. It’s a 3D printed lamp that looks like the Moon when it’s lit up. Interestingly, it doesn’t look much like the Moon when it’s not lit. There are tons of videos on YouTube from folks, and those videos look pretty much like the company’s promotion pics. It has a warm light and cool light mode, and you can the light and intensity with a touch. It recharges via a USB port, too. It comes in multiple sizes, with the smallest—3.5-inches—coming with a ceramic hand for a base. The larger sizes, up to 7.3-inches in diameter, come on a wooden base. That largest model is $79.99 on TheApolloBox, but I found it on Amazon for $45.99. The 5.7-inch model is $29.99 on Amazon. It’s pretty cool!

TMO Background Mode Encore Interview with TMO Contributor Kelly Guimont

· John Martellaro · Background Mode Podcast

Kelly Guimont on Background Mode.

Kelly Guimont does TextExpander technical support for Smile Software. She’s also a podcaster and a TMO Contributor. And she joins the TMO Daily Observations (TDO) Podcast with me on most Wednesdays. On a recent TDO episode, Kelly revealed that she holds her iPhone in a very special way with one hand. Just how she operates the iPhone in that mode and how she manages her apps created a very interesting follow-up discussion in this podcast. Kelly also shared her thoughts on the latest iTunes, version 12.7., that eliminated app support. (Apple has since mildly reversed course.) Kelly and I really let loose here, so don’t miss the fun!

Apple Already Patched KRACK Hack in iOS, tvOS, watchOS, macOS

· Bryan Chaffin · Cool Stuff Found

Apple has already patched against the KRACK hack in iOS, tvOS, watchOS, and macOS. iMore publisher Rene Ritchie tweeted that Apple confirmed all four OSes have been patched against the threat. In a separate piece, the site noted that Apple’s AirPort base stations have also been patched against KRACK. The flaw, called Key Reinstallation attack (KRACK) takes advantage of a flaw in the WPA2 standard that lets an attacker decrypt the data flowing through the wireless network. As noted in TMO’s Daily Observations on Monday, Aruba and Ubiquiti enterprise servers have also been patched. TMO‘s Dave Hamilton explained in that episode how router makers are very motivated to get this issue patched, and that firmware updates are in the works at most major manufacturers.

Watch This Video of Dubai Police Star Wars-Like Hoverbike In-Action

· Bryan Chaffin · Cool Stuff Found

Check out this video of the Hoversurf in action. It’s a promo video Hoversurf produced with the Dubai police department to show off the Star Wars-like hoverbikes being produced for the oil-rich United Arab Emirates. These things can travel at 70 kilometers per hour (43.5MPH), according to ABC, with a range of 6 clicks (3.7 miles) and flight time of 25 minutes. It’s intensely awesome, except for the part where it’s obviously difficult to control. And keep in mind that this video is a carefully edited promotional video produced under what are theoretically optimum conditions. But whatevs, because [hoverbike]!
