Geneva, Aug 14 (PTI) Scientists have used a "breakthrough" approach, that combines virtual reality and artificial tactile sensations, to help two amputees feel as though their prosthetic hand belongs to their own body.

Questions regarding Peertube:


If you know anything, please inform me.

I'm considering using Peertube. But before I spend time creating an account, and setting everything up only to find out that I can not reach anyone, I would like to know a few things.

• If I post a video on peertube, can I put a link to the video for my facebook people, and will they be able to watch it without an account? (Because 90% of people online will NEVER try anything but Fakebook and Goog-tube)

• Does it have a "Channel" type of set-up? Like a profile with a users videos in one place.

• Does it offer a custom theme or color option like Zippcast, or the pre-google Youtube? (R.I.P. to both)

WhatsApp has finally encrypted group video calling for everyone


WhatsApp is rolling out a new feature that brings its features up to par with other major messaging apps: group video calls.

That's a fairly modest increase, particularly compared to other services. Facebook Messenger supports group video calls of up to 50, while Snapchat supports 16 participants. Apple's FaceTime will work with up to 32 people when iOS 12 launches later this year. But the feature is likely more challenging for WhatsApp than some of its competitors. Its video calls, like other messages sent within the app, are end-to-end encrypted by default, for one thing. The company also needs to ensure new features are optimized for people with slower connections and older devices.

New Zealand Government spends $150,000 to create video game to teach people how to run a business


Government, Joy Business Academy, Xero and BNZ have teamed up and created a video game to give players insight into running their own business.

The Ministry of Social Development spent $150,000 on the game but the total cost of development could not be revealed. It took 14 months and eight designers to create.

The Tycoon Game series, which consists of Restaurant Tycoon and Tech Tycoon, challenges players to use what the World Economic Forum has deemed as 10 essential skills vital for the future of employment.

The educational game will teach players business skills including emotional intelligence and cognitive flexibility, as well as critical thinking and creativity - skills the Forum has this year bumped up the prescribed list.
