The Flipper Zero is a software based radio device that can be used to clone electronic key cards, read RFID chips, and as recently discovered by Dan Goodin of Ars Technica, the device can be used to crash iPhones by bombarding them with Bluetooth connection notifications.

Researchers at the University of Sydney demonstrated that an AI network made of nanowires is more efficient than computer based AI because it can learn and adapt in real time.

The Network State Conference

Balaji Shrinivasan's The Network State Podcast live-streamed their conference on YouTube. The Network State concept describes society moving away from nation states towards states that coalesce virtually and/or around shared ideals. The conference included talks from organisations that are experimenting with creating their own communities, enclaves, online and real-life cities, and presentations about how technology (usually blockchain) can power these initiatives and also disrupt the operation of the incumbents, aka countries.
