Domino’s and IFTTT make getting takeout even lazier

Domino’s Pizza has already enabled people to track the location of their pizza as it comes from the shop to their home. But that’s not enough for the company, which has teamed up with If This, Then That, to connect the platform to your smart home. Yes, it’s a publicity stunt, although it’s one that has a couple of useful applications if you’re rocking a sufficiently futuristic abode.

One of the applications for the Domino’s-branded applets involves turning on your home’s porch lights when the delivery person is near. Another is letting the system deactivate your sprinkler system to avoid any pizza-splash incidents that would ruin your evening. Then there’s the ability to activate specific Samsung smart vacuums to clean your carpets before your dinner arrives.

If you’re already a member of the IFTTT family, all you need to do is head to the IF website and download the Domino’s Applets. You can also develop your own recipes so that, say, your house lights change color as the pizza cooks. Or you could set an alert to remind yourself that you’ll need to get some exercise in every now and again.

Microsoft’s Seeing AI app for the blind now reads handwriting

Artificial intelligence took center stage at Microsoft's AI Summit in San Francisco on Wednesday. Aside from announcing AI smarts for a range of software -- from Bing to Office 365 -- the tech titan is also ramping up its Seeing AI app for iOS, which uses computer vision to audibly help blind and visually impaired people to see the world around them. According to Microsoft, it's nabbed 100,000 downloads since its launch in the US earlier this year, which convinced the tech titan to bring it to 35 countries in total, including the EU.

It's also getting a bunch of new features. The app now boasts more currency recognition, adding British pounds, US dollars, Canadian dollars, and Euros to its tally. Going beyond the color in a scene, it can also spot the color of specific objects, like clothes. Plus, it's no longer restricted to just short printed text, with handwriting recognition now part of its skill set. You can also customize the voice that it uses to speak its observations out loud, and set how fast it talks.

Finally, a musical light detector alerts you to the light in an environment with an audible tone -- Microsoft claims the tool will save users from having to touch a hot bulb or LED battery to check if it's on. Despite the big update, there's still no word on an Android launch.
