Massive Rubik’s Cube Could Travel the Globe
Those with a penchant for puzzles will be pleased to know that there’s a big crowdfunding campaign in the works. Quite literally, big
Liberty Science Center CEO Paul Hoffman, a friend of inventor Erno Rubik, has launched an Indiegogo project aimed at recreating the world’s largest working Rubik’s Cube, dubbed the “Groovik’s Cube.” Originally conceived of as a low-cost model for the 2009 Burning Man desert arts festival, Hoffman and some friends built an astounding 40-foot iteration.
Groovik’s Cube was lit from within by LEDs, and could be seen from two miles away; it required three players to operate, with one person controlling each axis. (Yes, revelers solved it — in two hours.) Read more…More about Indiegogo, Art, Crowdfunding, Rubiks Cube, and Tech

App Crowdsources Locations of Every Surveillance Camera
We’re always being watched. And a new app lets you know it
Surv combines user input and technology to create maps with detailed descriptions of the locations and types of surveillance cameras. Kaza Razat and Khalid Mills developed the app after realizing how little access to this information law enforcement agencies have.
Formerly game developers, Razat and Mills created a utility app that actually provided the information they saw in spy games and movies. Their gaming experience informed competitiveness in Surv too, with a leader-board and new features unlocked by contributing. They hope to expand slowly through a Kickstarter campaign, but they are currently focused on creating a group of slightly exclusive users Read more…More about Surveillance, Kickstarter, Tech, Apps Software, and Us

How iCloud Keychain Is Better (and Worse) Than a Password Manager
Of the many announcements Apple made last week, the news about iCloud Keychain seemed fairly minor. After all, senior vice president of of software engineering Craig Federighi spent just 1:20 on it at Apple’s WWDC keynote.
However, iCloud Keychain could end up having a big impact on consumer habits. We all know we should use different, hard-to-crack passwords for the many services we use every day, yet few people do so. A recent study found that almost two-thirds of consumers re-use passwords across multiple sites, making them much more vulnerable to a phishing attack.Apple, Password Manager, Tech, Apps Software, and Ios 7
