I found convenient in some occasions to attach my smartphone camera and specially my 360° camera on a tiny magnetic mount mostly invisible in my 360 shots. I can even hang my 360 camera up and down on metal surfaces for interesting shots.

If it's already summer where you live, it's probably a great time for outdoor fitness activities. Running, cycling, or jogging are awesome exerciser for you to get in shape.

And if you want to lose or control your current weight, it is essential to keep a record of your results. Using a sportsband (link/link) for instance, will allow you to verify whether you are on the right track and stay motivated. But it's essential to keep record of your weight progress. And with the right tools and using a little electronics and programming, you can make your own internet connected bathroom scale! You can find several bluetooth smart scales of different manufactures online (http://bit.ly/2ioV8aH, and http://bit.ly/2znTMQz for instance). But instead of buying one, why not lose some weight by making your own gadget?

News: Facebook made some private posts public for as many as 14M via ABC7

This is a major reason I have always told people to expect that everything you post on FB is public. Between confusing privacy controls and errors like this, I think it is the wisest policy. Don’t post it if you wouldn’t want it public. Just a good policy on all social media. Use Telegram, Signal or something similar for “private” stuff, but even then don’t depend on anything being truly private once it is online. — Douglas

News: Facebook made some private posts public for as many as 14M via ABC7

NEW YORK — Facebook says a software bug made some private posts public for as many as 14 million users over several days in May.

The problem, which Facebook says it has fixed, is the latest privacy scandal for the world's largest social media company. The company said on Thursday the bug automatically suggested that users make new posts public, even if they had previously restricted to "friends only" or another private setting.

This $20 security camera is aiming for the Nest Cam’s throne via TechCrunch

When the Nest Cam — or the Dropcam, as it was known back then — was first introduced, it was something of a game changer. A security camera that just… worked. Plug it in, get it on WiFi, and you’re set.

Nowadays, the Nest Cam stands in a more crowded arena. Logitech, Netgear, Samsung, and most of the other big names all have their own comparable offerings, all racing to bring the biggest feature set at the lowest price point.

A new challenger approaches! It’s called the Wyze Cam, and, as ridiculous as it seems, it’ll only cost $20 (before shipping, which varies a bit.)

Polaroid Camera Upgraded With Thermal Printer And Raspberry Pi via Geeky Gadgets

What a great way to recycle an old camera!— Douglas

If you have an old Polaroid camera collecting dust in a cupboard or drawer you may be interested in a new project shared via the Mitexla website that adds a thermal printer and a Raspberry Pi mini PC together with a web camera. Check out the demonstration video below to learn more about this unique build.

“It feels like only the other day I was going on about an instant camera that uses thermal paper being one of my abandoned dreams. I abandoned it because I found out it had already been done, and isn’t particularly hard. But! Soon after, I decided that that’s a terrible way to see things, and if we stuck by that, we’d never get much done, let alone learn anything. So here is my attempt at an instant camera that prints onto thermal paper. This project was partly done as a collaboration with Tom, who knows a lot about Linux and whose face is visible in some of the pictures.”
