A bug in popular Internet service Google Maps made hundreds of travelling in Norway tourists to roam the provinces in search of Preikestolen - one of the most famous landmarks of the Scandinavian Kingdom. According to the newspaper Stavanger Aftenblad, foreigners who are trying to the cars to get to Preikestolen on the Google map may not be at the foot of the cliffs, which offers stunning views of the fjord and the green valley and the tiny village of Forsmark.
"We have sent home hundreds of tourists, assuring them that the rock is on the opposite side of the fjord. Summer is coming to us for 10-15 cars a day," - said the publication of a local resident Helga, PassMark.
Google Maps correctly reflect the location of Preikestolen, however, when you try the path up to this point, a computer algorithm provides the shortest from his point of view path - to Fossmark opposite cliffs, and then across the fjord. Tourists, who believe the Navigator in the word, we have to go back 15 kms to the nearest bridge. Not the most pleasant way to spend time, given that the road to the village is in a deplorable state and it is not so easy to pass.
One of the possible reasons for the error is that roads don't go directly to the rock. To enjoy the view from the cliff, you must walk about 4 km walk uphill and it is not an easy route. In the Norwegian office of Google, told journalists that he would try as soon as possible to establish the cause of the failure and eliminate it.

Using a normal webcam, the developers "gave" Bonny hand sight, and then taught her self to take different things, says ANDROID.
Prostheses that can be controlled by thought, has already used in medicine. What if your denture will have their own "thoughts"?
A team of researchers from Newcastle University in Britain have developed an artificial hand that can recognize objects in front of him and make them. To give hand vision, the authors used a simple web camera Logitech, and then developed a special software for viznachennya seen items.
"Using computer vision technology, we have created Banco hand, which automatically reacts to what he saw before him the items," said co-author, senior lecturer of the Department of biomedical engineering Canus Nazarpour. – "It turns out, the winner of the prosthesis can stretch the prosthesis and take the object such as a Cup, just quickly glancing at it."
As the researchers note, the problem of prostheses, which are controlled by electrical signals sent to the limb muscles with the brain, that they are not fast enough to react to signals. Team Nazarpour believes that their development is much more intuitive. With the help of special software they "taught" Banco hand to recognize many different objects, and then automatically determine how you want this thing to take. Moreover, it is able to pick up a grip of the subject, who had never seen.
The developers tested the device on two volunteers, who had an arm amputated. The tests were successful, and now a team of researchers is going to offer a "smart" prosthesis for use in a local hospital.
"It is very important that our technology is cheaper, and can be applied already in the near future", – said Kanuch Nazarpour.
Researchers will continue work on the prosthesis: their ultimate goal is to "teach" Banco hand to feel pressure and temperature.
