WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 3388 [post_author] => 638 [post_date] => 2018-04-01 17:09:40 [post_date_gmt] => 2018-04-01 07:09:40 [post_content] => Three essential tools for every handyman or woman. Includes our magnetic WristBuddy, an extendable, flexible magnetic flashlight and our three function COB headlamp!

1 - Magnetic WristBuddy:

The magnetic WristBuddy keeps everything within easy reach whether you’re under the hood, squeezing into a bathroom cabinet, up a ladder or just nailing a few 4×2’s together! Designed to hold lots of screws, nails, nuts and washers, the magnets are amply strong enough to also hold drill bits, hex keys, bolts, screwdrivers and even spanners. Made from extremely durable 1680D Oxford cloth, your WristBuddy will be with you for years to come.

2 - Magnetic, Extendable, Flexible Flashlight

  The perfect tool for finding that lost screw that rolled under your workbench or the pins that dropped onto the carpet! This bright, COB LED flashlight extends to a full 60cm (2ft), has a flexible neck and a strong magnet in the lens surround. It's also a wonderful aid for anyone with bad knees.

3 - Three Function COB LED Headlamp

How often have you wished for better lighting while doing a job? All you needed was a third hand with a flashlight, right? This tough, fully adjustable headlamp uses the latest Chip On Board LED technology for maximum performance. Set it for bright, normal or strobe function with a click of the switch. Weighing just 65 grams (2.25 oz), including the three AAA batteries, our headlamp can be worn hour after hour. And because it's both shock and water resistant, it's great for camping and fishing as well as in the home and workshop.

Special offer:

Bought separately, these three items are currently selling for a combined total of $27.40. For this week only, we have packaged all three for just $17.50 including free delivery.

Hackers Could Gridlock Entire Cities By Disabling Self-Driving Cars

Hackers Could Gridlock Entire Cities By Disabling Self-Driving Cars

Last Updated on

New research says hackers could bring entire cities to a complete standstill by disabling self-driving cars. Are the streets of the real world ready for fully autonomous vehicles?

Several automakers have claimed self-driving cars will ease traffic congestion and make roads safer for everybody. Previous research appears to prove them correct, for the most part.

However, none of the previous experiments addressed the effects of a large-scale hack in an urban setting.

That is, until now. 

New research suggests that hackers can bring entire cities to a devastating standstill just by commandeering a number of self-driving cars.

“Especially Concerning…”

Using computer simulations, scientists from the Georgia Institute of Technology found that disabling just 10 to 20 percent of cars during rush hour would gridlock Manhattan.

Peter Yunker, who leads the research team, says the resulting traffic jam wouldn’t just be “bad traffic.” It is likely to create total chaos!

“You have complete fragmentation of the city,” Yunker says. “This is especially concerning for emergency responders such as EMTs and firefighters who cannot reach their destinations to respond to an emergency.”

The Math Proves It

Experts have long warned that hackers can hijack automated driving systems with no more than a laptop and an internet connection. The researchers had set out to learn what would happen if hackers stopped several cars simultaneously.

The investigators found that as self-driving cars are hacked and disabled, clusters of roads became completely inaccessible. 

Even more striking, traffic stopped and flowed according to known scientific principles!

Mitigating Risks

The percolation theory is a mathematical approach based on the statistical analysis of networks. The team discovered that by using the theory, they could simulate how a large-scale hacking would affect New York City in real time.

“It becomes impossible to get from point A to point B,” says Yunker of the results. “You are completely surrounded by blocked roads.”

But the analysis helped the team to develop a risk-mitigation strategy. They said multiple networks for self-driving cars will reduce risks. Such networks, they claim, would decrease the number of autonomous cars that can be hacked in a single intrusion.

“If no more than, say, five percent of connected vehicles were compartmentalized to the same network or utilized the same network protocols, the chance of citywide fragmentation would be low,” says team member Skanda Vivek.

Are the roads of your neighborhood ready for the next revolution in autonomous vehicle technology?
