The Oxford English Dictionary appears ready to reverse the polarity of the neutron flow with an announcement welcoming the term "sonic screwdriver" from "Doctor Who" into its official lexicon.

The OED offers up this definition: "sonic screwdriver n. chiefly Science Fiction a (hand-held) electronic device which uses sound waves to perform various mechanical and technical function."

Apparently, 12th Doctor Peter Capaldi's sonic sunglasses didn't make the cut.

Saturday's OED announcement notes how the sonic screwdriver has come to signify "a type of ultimate tool of the future."

"Sonic screwdriver" will join the new edition of the OED when the edition's released this June.

The Doctor's trusty tool won't be alone inside the famed dictionary.

A new Doctor on Doctor Who means new everything: new monsters, new best friends, new TARDISes, and new gear.

That includes a new Sonic Screwdriver, the Doctor’s jack-of-all-trades technological device – and while we got a very tiny flash of it in the new trailer yesterday, we now have a great look at its very unusual visage.

Naturally, it’s because the Thirteenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver is now a toy to tie into the upcoming series, and actually available for purchase at Comic-Con.

If you’re not at the show, the 7.4-inch-long toy will hit shelves in August, ahead of Doctor Who’s highly-anticipated return later this year.

While the toy itself is pretty nifty – it lights up, just like the one on the show, and makes all the appropriately buzzy sonic screwdriver noises you’d hope it would make (it also rotates!).

But it’s surprising from a design standpoint just how, well, alien this new sonic is.

The CIA has had tools to infect Macs by connecting malicious Thunderbolt ethernet adapters to them since 2012, according to new documents purported to be from the agency and published by WikiLeaks.

One of the documents, dated Nov. 29, 2012, is a manual from the CIA’s Information Operations Center on the use of a technology codenamed Sonic Screwdriver.

It is described as “a mechanism for executing code on peripheral devices while a Mac laptop or desktop is booting.”

Sonic Screwdriver allows the CIA to modify the firmware of an Apple Thunderbolt-to-ethernet adapter so that it forces a MacBook to boot from an USB stick or DVD disc even when its boot options are password protected.

More importantly, an adapter modified by Sonic Screwdriver can be used to execute Der Starke, a fileless macOS malware program that has a persistence component installed in the computer’s EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface).

An EFI implant, or rootkit, can inject malicious code inside the operating system’s kernel during the boot process and will survive even if the OS is fully reinstalled or the hard disk drive is changed.

It may not be even remotely close to what The Doctor uses on Doctor Who, but a team at the University of Bristol in England has created a sonic screwdriver that utilizes the powers of acoustic levitation to move objects.

The screwdriver, along with what they re calling a Gauntlet of Levitation, were created as a way to help humans control acoustic levitation in order to interact with dangerous materials.

The presented prototypes still have limited forces but symbolize a milestone in our expectations of future technology, the researchers stated in an abstract posted on the Bristol Interaction Group s website.

As shown in the video, smaller pieces can be rotated, which can be helpful in medical procedures or experiments involving dangerous materials.

Single-beam levitation could manipulate particles inside our body for applications in targeted drug delivery or acoustically controlled micro-machines that do not interfere with magnetic resonance imaging, the study stated.

So we re not exactly close yet, but maybe we will be in a few thousand years.

Wikileaks isn’t done with its Vault 7 release of CIA hacking documents, which has already created quite a stir by outlining various exploits that the CIA created for a variety of platforms.

While Wikileaks has not revealed sufficient detail to allow the exploits to be easily used by cybercriminals, it has pointed nefarious parties in the right directions.

Now, Wikileaks has released another bundle of documents, this time dubbed “Dark Matter.” This time, the organization turned an eye to Apple’s Mac, with a number of exploits that are both insidious and persistent, MacRumors reports.

The leak highlights a specific CIA program, “Sonic Screwdriver,” that was created by the agency’s innocuous-sounding Embedded Development Branch.

The exploit uses infected USB drives to inject code that attacks a Mac while it’s starting up and bypasses a user password to instead “boot its attack software.” Allegedly, the code has even been installed to modified firmware on Apple’s own Thunderbolt-Ethernet adapter.

Sonic Screwdriver isn’t the only exploit contained in the Dark Matter leak:

In the BBC’s latest brainwave to get school kids excited about programming, it’s the Beeb’s own Micro Bit computer board which is the gadget to save the day against the Daleks’ latest dastardly plot.

Tying Doctor Who in with computer studies is a pretty innovative way of making programming more accessible and interesting, in order to stoke enthusiasm with the next generation of coders.

And that’s exactly what the BBC’s Live Lessons aim to do, streaming live broadcasts to classrooms across the UK.

In this interactive Doctor Who episode-meets-lesson, the Daleks have triggered a supernova causing a shockwave that is threatening to destroy Earth – and only the ‘combined power of a million Micro Bits’ can save the day.

This will be a 50-minute adventure that kicks off at 11:00 tomorrow morning (UK time), with students using their Micro Bits to help the Doctor defeat the alien menace we’re all too familiar with now.

Specifically, the lesson is designed around developing the ‘computational thinking skills’ of 11 to 13-year-olds, and as well as the Doctor himself, it will also feature various guest experts from the spheres of computer games and web search.

WikiLeaks on Thursday released new documents it says describe hacking tools used by the Central Intelligence Agency over the past decade to infect Apple Inc. devices.

The fresh cache of documents raised eyebrows, describing sinister-sounding software such as “DarkMatter” and “Sonic Screwdriver” that is seemingly hard to detect and can remain on a Mac even after the hard drive is erased.

Security experts, though, said these methods...

Avez-vous déjà voulu Cosplay Costume?

Modifiez simplement le costume existant (pas de couture - la colle à tissu fait des merveilles) ou même mieux, à commencer par les jeux de rôle quotidiens.

Ce type de vêtement consiste à assembler des vêtements que vous pouvez porter dans votre garde-robe quotidienne.

Vous pouvez confectionner ou acheter des vestes et chemises de protection précises, assortis aux différents médecins, mais vous pouvez également récupérer des objets similaires dans des placards ou des magasins d’épargne.

Pour le 11ème médecin, ces éléments étaient son tournevis sonique, son nœud papillon rouge et sa veste en tweed marron.

Vous pouvez porter un t-shirt Matt Smith de TeeFury avec un pantalon brun foncé ou noir, un blazer beige, des bottes marron et un fez ou son tournevis vocal.

In a little over a week, Doctor Who fans will climb aboard the Tardis for another season of the long-running British science fiction show.

This season, which has an official start date of Oct. 7, just about everything is new -- the logo, the companions, the showrunner and notably the Doctor herself.

For the first time in Doctor Who's 55-year history, the titular character will be played by a woman, Jodie Whittaker.

Whether you're totally caught up or got sucked into a pocket universe, here's a rundown of everything we know so far about the upcoming season 11.

It's the long-running story of an alien called the Doctor who travels through the always wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey space and time using a police-box-shaped ship called the Tardis (Time And Relative Dimension In Space), which he stole.

The show can go on decade after decade because the Doctor is a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey, and Time Lords have the power to regenerate.

Apple has responded to WikiLeaks's newest Vault 7 disclosures saying "the alleged iPhone vulnerability affected iPhone 3G only and was fixed in 2009 when iPhone 3GS was released".

"We have preliminarily assessed the Wikileaks disclosures from this morning.

Additionally, our preliminary assessment shows the alleged Mac vulnerabilities were previously fixed in all Macs launched after 2013," Apple told Mashable.

Titled "Dark Matter", WikiLeaks' recently published Vault 7 files allegedly detail the CIA's efforts to hack iPhones and MacBooks.

According to WikiLeaks, the various CIA projects targeting Apple products allegedly reveal that the spy agency had been compromising iPhones since 2008.

Apple's statement refers to two specific CIA projects, the "NightSkies" and the "Sonic Screwdriver".

With that in mind, and the fact that the BBC just launched a new spin-off of the decades-old sci-fi programme, we're going to take a look at the best Doctor Who-themed swag you can buy.

Unfortunately, thanks to the BBC's callous attitude to many classic TV shows, the entire episode was destroyed.

So the corporation hired someone to animate the entire thing from scratch for home release.

Troughton's last proper episode as the Doctor, ignoring the anniversary specials that teamed him up with his past and future selves.

Here the Doctor and his companions arrive on a world where soldiers from all over space and time are being forced to fight, in order to use them in a grand conquering army.

There are going to be zillions of Elevens running around—and that s a costume you could DIY easily, if you have time to do a charity shop hunt trying to score a pink baby-doll dress.

You could do Barb dead or alive, depending on your make-up stills—though if you re talented enough to pull off Dead Barb, you probably don t need a last-minute Halloween idea .

All you need is a shirt that looks like fugly wallpaper, decorated with an alphabet that looks like it was scrawled by a desperate mother whose kid has suddenly vanished into a parallel dimension.
