NBC: Rio 2016 broadcast is its ‘most live Olympics ever’

While NBC has been criticized for years over its use of tape delay, a combination of multiple channels, live streaming and Brazil's favorable time zone (just hour ahead of ET) mean that shouldn't be a problem this summer. For Rio 2016, NBC says this will be its "most live Olympics ever" with 4,500 hours of coverage streaming on NBCOlympics.com and the recently renamed NBC Sports app. Also new this time around is that the NBC Sports app is on connected TV devices (it launched on Roku and Apple TV last year), not just mobile. You will, of course, still need a cable or satellite account to login and view everything, although NBC hasn't revealed all the details on how that will work.

This intelligent tape measure may be the world’s smartest

Bagel is up on Kickstarter looking to raise $30,000 to bring you a digital tape measure that offers three different measuring modes, the ability to save measurements, record voice memos and even sync data with its companion mobile app.

You can utilize Bagel's string mode to obtain measurements more akin to analog tools up to 10 feet with strong Dyneema string that can withstand up to 112 lbs. Alternatively, you can use Bagel's wheel mode to roll it on its side and measure curved distances with one hand. You can also use the remote mode, which features a laser pointer and allows you to measure horizontal and vertical distances.

If you're interested in backing the Bagel, which is poised to offer several features that should absolutely make measuring a much easier process, you can pledge $59 to snag one unit with a micro USB cable at 45% off its estimated price while it's still being Kickstarted.

AI lawyer shoots down 160,000 parking tickets

Who said that chat bots were gimmicks? Certainly not DoNotPay's Joshua Browder. He recently noted to VentureBeat that his service's AI-driven virtual lawyer has successfully contested 160,000 parking tickets in London and New York City in nearly 2 years of service, saving drivers millions in the process. It's not the most complicated bot, as it's really just asking simple questions about the circumstances of the ticket and walking you through the appeal. However, it's both effective (it successfully challenged 64 percent of tickets) and, importantly, free -- you don't have to pay a real lawyer to dish out advice.

Global internet speeds are on the rise again

Yes, South Korea still has the fastest internet in the world. But, according to content delivery network Akamai, average global speeds are up overall from late last year, jumping to 6.3 Mbps. More than that, we're seeing increases in increases in IPv6 adoption with Belgium leading the way and the older IPv4 slowly dropping off on a global scale. And if you were wondering what mobile speeds are looking like lately, guess no more: average connections were at 27.9 Mbps in the UK and dipped to 2.2 Mbps in Algeria.

A digital music box for the nostalgic remix artist

The digital music box uses magnetic marbles that stick to one of 16 clearly-marked spots on each wheel, triggering sounds when they spin over the sensor on the base plate. Users assign different instruments or tones to each wheel, which have their own sliders for pitch and volume. Connect the XOXX to a computer over a MIDI connection and let the good mixing times roll.

Sadly, the digital music box is not yet for sale. Inventor Axel Bluhme built early prototypes while studying at the Royal College of Art in London, but he has yet to develop it into a full commercial product, he tells The Verge. But since each magnetic node clearly corresponds to 1/16 of a beat, it could become a great visual alternative to the traditional flat beat pad for the novice digital mixer.

Google Keep auto-creates topics for your notes

Google Keep's new feature will help you find notes old and new even if you never even bothered slapping a label on them. The free app now organizes your notes based on automatically created topics, such as food, places and travel. Even better, you can look for entries simply by clicking on the search bar to bring up topic shortcuts you can access. Google didn't exactly explain how it works, but Keep likely takes cues from the words you use. If you write down "pack for trip to Paris," the app will automatically associate that entry with travel. Useful, especially if you're too lazy to organize your to-do lists and "notes to self" manually. The new feature is now live on Android and iOS, as well as for Keep on the web.

Google’s undersea cable connecting US and Japan is now live

According to Google SVP Urs Hölzle, its 60Tbps total capacity is "more than any active subsea cable, and 10 million times faster than your cable modem." Japanese company NEC Corporation began building FASTER back in 2014. Besides Google, the project was also backed by China Mobile International, China Telecom Global, Global Transit, KDDI and Singtel. The big G completely owns one part of FASTER, though, particularly the cables connecting Japan and Taiwan, which have a smaller, but still impressive, capacity of 20 Tbps.

The next ‘Lost in Space’ reboot starts on Netflix in 2018

Netflix optioned Lost in Space late last November, and we finally have a few more details about when we'll see it. The classic -- and short-lived -- sci-fi reboot is currently slated for a 10 episode run and will premiere in 2018, according to Deadline's sources. The report goes on to say that the series shouldn't stray too far from original creator Irwin Allen's original: The Robinson family (neither the Classic or the Matt LeBlanc version) will find themselves, you guessed it, lost in space with them "battling a strange new alien environment and also their own personal demons."

Microsoft’s 1TB Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 hit the UK

Both devices come with a Core i7 processor and 16GB of RAM. In short -- they're utter beasts in the power department. You'll have to pay for all that extra storage and grunt, however. In the UK, the 1TB Surface Book costs £2,649, while the the 1TB Surface Pro 4 comes in at £2,199. Cheap laptop replacements, these are not. Still, they represent the best of Microsoft hardware, and a glimpse at what the company can achieve when it targets true power users. And in the case of the Surface Pro 4, you could always add the Signature Type Cover, just to make it even more luxurious.

Let people watch you eat, live on Twitch

With Twitch Creative, the Bob Ross Marathon and now this silliness, Twitch is going back to its non-gaming Justin.tv roots and pushing into YouTube's terrain with mainstream lifecasting. Ironically, that's the opposite of what YouTube is doing with its Gaming site. Nevertheless, it may be the career opportunity you've been waiting for, judging by how it's going so far. There aren't a lot of streams, but one of them has nearly two million total views and 75,000 likes, and the person, "Jendenise," is eating what looks like plain biscuits.
