Smart speakers like Amazon Echo can be hacked through lasers: Study

The researchers of University of Michigan and Japan’s University of Electro-Communication have come up with a new finding that the smart speakers (Amazon Echo, Google Home) which use mics through which they take the commands cannot differentiate between a sound and a light stimulus and respond to light in the same way they respond to sound. Thus, these devices could be hacked by using lasers from a long distance to perform many mischief like online shopping and other transactions even without the owner knowing about it.

Archaeologists discover remains of three different cats inside ancient Egyptian Mummy

Archaeologists have found partial remains of three different cats inside the single feline mummy. Through means of a CT scan, scientists at the French National Institute for Preventive Archeological Research (Inrap) have recreated 3D photographs of the inside of the cat mummy. As per media reports, researchers found a ball of fabric located where the cat's head should've been. The mummy also had five hind leg bones, each apparently taken from different felines. Besides the haphazard remains and the ball of fabric, the mummy was completely free of ribs, backbone, and skull. Researchers are still trying to figure out the motive behind the practice of wrapping up partial bones instead of the entire animal. Src: https://bit.ly/2WNvzQB
