Ocoado's driverless pod is designed to deliver goods but is not big enough for the weekly shop.

Serial entrepreneur Elon Musk says his ambitious tunnel-boring endeavor, aptly named The Boring Company, has officially started digging underneath Los Angeles. Musk announced the news on Twitter, where he said “Godot,” the Samuel Beckett-inspired name of the company’s tunnel boring machine, had completed the the first segment of a tunnel in the Southern California metropolis. Prior to today, it was unclear how long it would take Musk to convince the city to allow him to move the experimental effort beyond the SpaceX parking lot in Hawthorne.
Musk has made a rather public showing of his offbeat tunnel-digging venture over the last few months, with an occasional flurry of Twitter announcements and Instagram posts to commemorate each new...
A team of German designers has reinvented the tree to clean up urban air pollution. Using the natural power of moss, they hope to make city air safer to breathe.
Is ransomware still ransomware if its goal is purely to destroy?
This is less if-a-tree-falls hypothetical and more sobering reality for the untold number of people across the globe whose computer systems have been infected with the NotPetya ransomware. That's because the latest digital scourge to cripple computer networks in 65 countries (and counting) doesn't fit the typical ransomware mold.
Instead of just encrypting users' files and holding those files ransom, NotPetya appears to do permanent damage to computer systems.Hackers, Hacking, Ransomware, Petya, and Notpetya
How California is turning its car problem into a way to make LA greener.
Slowly, but surely, the Baxter robot is learning. It starts as a series of random grasps — the big, red robot pokes and prods clumsily at objects on the table in front of it. The robot is learning through tactile feedback and trial and error — or, as the Carnegie Mellon computer science team behind the project puts it, it’s learning about the world around it like a baby.

We hit peak iPhone 8 rumors today, thanks to a very detailed video showing off a mockup of Apple's 10th anniversary smartphone at every angle.
This is what the iPhone 8 will look like, according to popular Apple leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer in a new video that goes as far as measuring the new phone.
It's based on specs, known as 3D CAD drawings, that are said to be sourced "from the factory in charge of building the new iPhone," says the video.
The iPhone 8 video notes that details about the new phone could change before the official Apple launch event that's expected in September.Rumored iPhone 8 screen specs
This iPhone 8 was manufactured based on leaked information more than it does confirm any new specs. We're just now seeing it all in a clear hands-on video.Surprise! The iPhone 8 may look like the one in the middle, yet have a bigger screen
Everything is here. The striking all-screen display on the front gives the iPhone 8 a bezel-less design. Diagonally the iPhone 8 screen is said to be 5.8 inches.
The bigger iPhone 8 screen size won't actually make the phone bigger, sort of like the Samsung Galaxy S8. It should actually be smaller than the 7 Plus.
As seen in today's video, the all-screen design leaves only the front-facing FaceTime HD camera and the sensors peaking out at the top.iPhone 8 camera
The iPhone 8 camera will also give us a big upgraded, according to the video, with another dual-lens camera.The iPhone 8 camera looks ready for its very close-up (Credit: Onleaks/Tiger Mobiles)
This time, however, the camera has a sideways orientation (gangster-style). Apple's quad-LED True Tone flash is in the middle of the two lenses.
What's it do over the iPhone 7 Plus? Well besides the likelihood of better photos, iOS 11 confirmed that Apple is giving the iPhone an augmented reality future, so the change could be meant to foster better AR features.iPhone 8 home button
What's not here? The physical home button. Not even the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus home button pad. The screen has expanded while the device as shrunk in size compared to the Plus version – the best of both worlds for many people.No home button on front or back, meaning the fingerprint sensor could be embedded The iPhone 8 camera looks ready for its very close-up (Credit: Onleaks/Tiger Mobiles)
Apple may embed the home button within the glass, according to recent leaks. That is, if it's able to also incorporate the Touch ID fingerprint sensor beneath the glass, too.
It's a problem the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus reportedly had in the design phase before Apple's chief rival scrapped the concept and stuck it in an awkward spot on the back of the phone.iPhone 8 size
Size is an important new iPhone 8 feature, but this time Apple's not making its phone bigger, but physically smaller, from everything that's been reported.Much smaller than an iPhone 7 Plus The iPhone 8 camera looks ready for its very close-up (Credit: Onleaks/Tiger Mobiles)
The mockup in this iPhone 8 video has dimensions of 71mm x 143mm x 7.4mm. That's closer to the size of the 4.7-inch iPhone 7.
For comparison, the iPhone 7 measures 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1mm, while the iPhone 7 Plus comes out to be much longer and wider 77.9 x 158.2 x 7.3mm.
This may be the most understanded new feature of the iPhone 8 in the lead up to the official announcement expected in September.
