As far as we know iPhones are not one-handed anymore and this became one of the main complaints of the device. However it turned out there is actually a hidden one-handed keyboard that nobody is supposed to know about. A developer named Steve Troughton-Smith discovered it on the Apple device accidentally by hacking an Apple’s iOS Simulator.

Space and the celestial atmosphere never cease to astonish and intrigue us. All kinds of strange scenarios if imagined in the space environment give super interesting results. Let’s imagine that you fired a gun in the space… then… you will think that it can’t be…. because fires can’t burn in the oxygen-free vacuum but add to this the fact that modern day guns come with their own oxidizer.

It’s not often that interior design elements stem from MIT projects, but that’s exactly the case for the newly introduced Ori, the shapeshifting ‘apartment in a box’ that takes its name from the Japanese art of paper folding (yep, origami).

Ori spun off into its own company and tapped Yves Béhar offuseproject to design the system, and you can buy your own as soon as next year.

Facebook is heaping focus on live video with an entirely dedicated tab for streams, which prioritizes in-the-moment broadcasts, so it’s no surprise to see that Twitter is fighting back in the streaming war with an integration between Periscope, its live-streaming platform, and the Twitter mobile apps.

In what the company told The Verge is a test, a small number of Twitter for Android users have a ‘Go Live’ button alongside existing media options, such as record video or attach image, when they create a tweet. Those with the app already installed on their phone are directed to Periscope when they click button, all others are sent to the app store where they can download the live-streaming app.
