Finally — a paper thin solar charger for coffee shop sitters

 Apple might add solar charging features to its products at some point in the future, but we’re not quite there yet. Luckily for those iPhone 6 owners looking to charge their devices using the sun’s energy, there’s a crowd-funding project that’s taking Kickstarter by storm by promising to be the world’s thinnest and lightest solar charger in the world.
DON’T MISS: Some of the best Amazon Prime Day deals are still available
Called Solar Paper, the project has already convinced more than 2,400 backers to pledge almost $350,000, or seven times its original goal. The funding campaign still has 34 days to go, and the first Solar Paper products should start shipping at some point this September.
The cheapest Solar Paper charger will cost around $120 when it becomes commercially available, but sells for as little as $69 on Kickstarter. Adding more than two solar panels to Solar Paper is possible, but will cost you extra.
The device measures just 19 x 9 x 1.1cm when folded, and weighs 120g. In addition to the iPhone 6, Solar Paper can charge a variety of devices that can be charged using a USB connection, including Android handsets, GoPro cameras, tablets, and other gadgets. However, bigger devices might require additional solar panels, so make sure you select the appropriate perk for your device if you plan to buy a Solar Paper.

According to the video below, the iPhone 6 can be fully charged in 2.5 hours using a Solar Paper device, which is rather impressive.

LG’s first flexible OLED phone due before the year is out

LG plans to launch a flexible OLED smartphone before the end of the year, the company’s VP of mobile has confirmed, though it’s unclear to what extent the work-in-progress handset will actually flex. The OLED panel in question is the handiwork of LG Display according to VP of LG mobile Yoon Bu-hyun, the WSJ  reports, with the proposed device set to launch sometime in Q4. LG Display’s work on flexible OLEDs has been underway for some time, though the company’s efforts have perhaps been overshadowed somewhat by rival Samsung’s YOUM development. Last year, according to a Korea Times report, LG Display was preparing for

Syrian Electronic Army claims credit for CBS Twitter accounts hack

Yesterday, several of CBS ’s Twitter accounts were hacked, including its main account, and its accounts for 60 Minutes, 48 Hours, and CBS Denver. The hackers got into the account and tweeted a series of things relating to President Obama and the United States being in cahoots with Al-Qaeda . The tweets also had links that led users to malware-infested sites. While CBS was able to regain access to its accounts, it was unable to figure out who was behind the attacks, until now.

Can Technology Do a Better Job of Finding Bombs?

 With the horrifying images of the Boston Marathon bombing still much too fresh in our minds, and with citywide marathons coming up this weekend in London, Hamburg, and Salt Lake City , law enforcement officers and citizens everywhere are asking how to prevent the tragedy from being repeated.
