Intel’s Machine Designed For Interactive Advertising

Intel has big plans on bringing a technology similar to Microsoft’s Kinect, but aimed at the business market, rather than gaming. Intel wants to focus their technology on interactive advertising. At the recent Computex, we see a prototype creation on display that demonstrates the concept.

Essentially, a sensor tracks the user and allows him or her to control what is displayed on the screen. On example of this technology would be to scroll through a list of products, while individual products that catch the viewer’s eye can be pulled up and brought into greater detail by hovering over the item.

Huge Security Hole Found In Many Nikon Cameras

Researchers have recently discovered a flaw in the system used by Nikon professional digital cameras, the same system that ensures that images have not been tampered with. What usually happens in high-end SLR digital cameras is a unique and encrypted signing key is assigned to an image when it is shot. This image is then verified by Nikon’s proprietary Image Authentication System. When an image gets edited, this key is overwritten, and the software does this automatically.
