Michael Dickinson: How a fly flies
An insect’s ability to fly is perhaps one of the greatest feats of evolution. Michael Dickinson looks at how a common housefly takes flight with such delicate wings, thanks to a clever flapping motion and flight muscles that are both powerful and nimble. But the secret ingredient: the incredible fly brain. (Filmed at TEDxCaltech.)

Google Tech Talk January 4, 2013 (expand for more info) Presented by Tim Conway ABSTRACT GoPano plus uses a specially curved mirror. Its shape gathers light from all directions and reﬂects it into the lens of your camera. This single image/video shows everything in a 360° ring around the GoPano plus. On your computer, this warped image is transformed (“unwarped”) into an interactive scene where anyone can control the view. Once you have the raw photos and/or videos, you’ll need software to edit them. We provide PhotoWarp (for images) and VideoWarp Director (for 360° videos). Whether you’re shooting 360° stills, panoramic videos, or both, we’ve got you covered. The GoPano plus has a standard 67mm photographic ﬁlter thread base which can be easily adapted to ﬁt almost all the digital cameras, DSLR lenses, and camcorders. GoPano Step Rings can adapt any camera or lens with a ﬁlter thread to connect directly to the GoPano plus. SPEAKER INFO: Tim Conway (http://imdb.to/XWNRXO) Not to be confused with actor in the Dorf videos, Tim Conway has been creating, supervising, and creating unique technology in the field of Visual Effects and Post Production since 1997. His latest endeavor is a camera lens with an attached mirror which allows you to take 360 degree panoramic still images or video. This Tech Talk was presented at Google’s LA office.
DEFCON 20: Don’t Stand So Close To Me: An Analysis of the NFC Attack Surface
Speaker: CHARLIE MILLER PRINCIPAL RESEARCH CONSULTANT, ACCUVANT LABS Near Field Communication (NFC) has been used in mobile devices in some countries for a while and is now emerging on devices in use in the United States. This technology allows NFC enabled devices to communicate with each other within close range, typically a few centimeters. It is being rolled out as a way to make payments, by using the mobile device to communicate credit card information to an NFC enabled terminal. It is a new, cool, technology. But as with the introduction of any new technology, the question must be asked what kind of impact the inclusion of this new functionality has on the attack surface of mobile devices. In this paper, we explore this question by introducing NFC and its associated protocols. Next we describe how to fuzz the NFC protocol stack for two devices as well as our results. Then we see for these devices what software is built on top of the NFC stack. It turns out that through NFC, using technologies like Android Beam or NDEF content sharing, one can make some phones parse images, videos, contacts, office documents, even open up web pages in the browser, all without user interaction. In some cases, it is even possible to completely take over control of the phone via NFC, including stealing photos, contacts, even sending text messages and making phone calls. So next time you present your phone to pay for your cab, be aware you might have just gotten owned. Charlie Miller is Principal Research Consultant at Accuvant Labs. He was the first with a public remote exploit for both the iPhone and the G1 Android phone. He is a four time winner of the CanSecWest Pwn2Own competition. He has authored three information security books and holds a PhD from the University of Notre Dame. He is currently being held in a maximum security prison in Cupertino, but hopes to be released soon for good behavior.

DEFCON 20: Drones!
Speaker: CHRIS ANDERSON EDITOR-IN-CHIEF, WIRED MAGAZINE Thanks to the plummeting cost of powerful motion sensors like those found in smartphones, the technology to create military-class autopilots is available to all. Over the past five years, the DIY Drones community has created a series of open source unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), from fully-autonomous planes, helicopters, quadcopters, hexacopters, rovers and more, which cost just a few hundred dollars — less than 1% the cost of equivalent military drones. As a result there are now more than 10,000 of them in use — more than the US Military. As DIY drones go mainstream, what are the practical applications that will emerge, and the legal, ethical and economic implications? How does open source change the regulatory aspects of drones? And will the rise of “personal drones” have a similar social impact as “personal computers” did? Chris Anderson is the Editor in Chief of Wired. He is the author of the New York Times bestsellers The Long Tail and FREE: The Future of a Radical Price, and the forthcoming Makers: The New Industrial Revolution. He is also founder of 3D Robotics, an open source robotics company.

DEFCON 20: Beyond the War on General Purpose Computing: What’s Inside the Box?
Speaker: CORY DOCOTOROW AUTHOR, ACTIVIST, BLOGGER, CO-EDITOR OF BOINGBOING.NET Assuming the failure of all the calls to regulate PCs and the Internet because people might do bad things with them, what then? Civil war, that’s what. The su/user split we inherited from multiuser systems has given us a false intuition: that owners of computers, and not their users, should set policy on them. How will that play out when your car, house, legs, ears and heart are driven by computers that you don’t own? Cory Doctorow (craphound.com) is a science fiction author, activist, journalist and blogger — the co-editor of BoingBoing (boingboing.net) and the author of Tor Teens/HarperCollins UK novels like FOR THE WIN and the bestselling LITTLE BROTHER. He is the former European director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and co-founded the UK Open Rights Group. Born in Toronto, Canada, he now lives in London.

Authors at Google: Ken Jennings | “Because I Said So!”
Don’t cross your eyes or they’ll stay like that! Feed a cold, starve a fever! Don’t touch your Halloween candy until we get it checked out! Never run with scissors! Don’t look in the microwave while it’s running! This will go down on your permanent record! Is any of it true? If so, how true? Ken Jennings wants to find out if mother and father always know best. Yes, all those years you were told not to sit too close to the television (you’ll hurt your eyes!) or swallow your gum (it stays in your stomach for seven years!) or crack your knuckles (arthritis!) are called into question by our country’s leading trivia guru. Jennings separates myth from fact to debunk a wide variety of parental edicts: no swimming after meals, sit up straight, don’t talk to strangers, and so on. Armed with medical case histories, scientific findings, and even the occasional experiment on himself (or his kids), Jennings exposes countless examples of parental wisdom run amok. Whether you’re a parent who wants to know what you can stop worrying about or a kid (of any age) looking to say, “I told you so,” this is the anti—helicopter parenting book you’ve been waiting for. Jennings, a former Software Engineer, will also discuss topics such as the spread of information access and the rise of Watson. Bio: Ken Jennings broke game show records in 2004 with his unprecedented seventy-four game, $2.52 million victory streak on Jeopardy!. Jennings’s book Brainiac, about his Jeopardy! adventures, was a critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller, as was his follow-up, Maphead. He is also the author of Ken Jennings’s Trivia Almanac. Jennings lives in Washington with his wife Mindy, his son Dylan and daughter Caitlin, and a deeply unstable Labrador retriever named Banjo.
