That is what the future could very well be, as the folks over at Verizon (yes, the company with the new logo) have just kicked off testing of an extremely fast 10 gigabit Internet service that will make use of the latest optical technology.

It seems that Arx Pax, the company behind the Hoverboard, has been tapped by NASA through a Space Act Agreement, where this particular partnership will see the use of Arx Pax’s Magnetic Field Architecture (MFA) technology that will be embedded in order to come up with micro-satellite capture devices which are able to manipulate and actually couple satellites from a distance.

samsung wifi baby monitor

Pictured for illustration purposes only

Baby monitors are seemingly innocent devices that allow parents to keep an eye and an ear on their sleeping child. However given that more of these devices have started to connect to the internet to allow remote viewing, it also means that they are susceptible to being hacked, as we have seen in a case a couple of years ago.

Now one would think that given the scare, more baby monitor companies would step up their efforts in creating more secure devices, but recent research conducted by a cybersecurity company Rapid7 have found that there are at least seven baby monitors that are still open to potential attacks.
