There are a plethora of toys that promise to teach your kid to code. Many of which scratch the surface of computer programming with intuitive drag-and-drop interfaces but fail to cover anything beyond the basics. Sparki, developed in the labs of ArcBotics, is a small tabletop robot designed to teach your kid real code. The robot doesn’t appear as polished as, say, a Sphero, but at the heart of the robot are some serious brains.
Aboard the International Space Station (ISS) is a passenger you’d least expect: a camera drone. Japan’s space agency has, for the first time, revealed images and videos taken from its JEM Internal Ball Camera or “Int-Ball”. The cute camera drone floats inside the space station, snapping photos and recording videos all while being remotely controlled from Earth. Int-Ball was manufactured by 3D-printing and utilizes current drone technologies.
Drones have become a technology icon over the past few years. Anyone can walk into Best Buy or click on Amazon and have a drone in their hands for less than a thousand bucks. But how many people do you know actually own a drone? Unless you participate in FPV racing, the answer is most likely not very many. DJI wants to change that. By shrinking the size, lowering the cost, and adding smart features, the company is making drones for the mainstream market.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
