They're hard to see

but you can probably find them

0:00:270:00:30

in your bathroom at home.

0:00:300:00:31

I'm talking about microbeads.

0:00:310:00:34

The UK has just banned them

but what exactly are they?

0:00:340:00:37

Here's Ayshah.

0:00:370:00:47

Microbeads small and five

millimetres, roughly a grain of

0:00:470:00:55

sand, used in some gels and

toothpaste. But the United Kingdom

0:00:550:01:00

has banned products making them,

they said that Trojans end up in

0:01:000:01:04

rivers, harming sea life. Just one

shower ten later 100,000 plastic

0:01:040:01:13

particles going into the ocean. Many

companies have already taken steps

0:01:130:01:20

to remove them, and although making

them has been banned, they are not

0:01:200:01:24

going to be removed from shops

completely until later this year.

0:01:240:01:28

Environmental campaigners hope that

a worldwide ban will soon follow.

0:01:280:01:35

You may have got some

of these for Christmas -

0:01:350:01:38

toys that work with Bluetooth

or wifi.

0:01:380:01:39

But experts say some

are easy to hack, and that

0:01:390:01:42

could be a big problem.

0:01:420:01:44

Hi. You should keep watching

Newsround.

Of course. But he should

0:01:440:01:55

not really be saying that. It is

connected toy. Really popular, using

0:01:550:02:01

bluetooth and wifi. But experts have

found out that some of them with

0:02:010:02:06

this robot are easy to hack into.

Really?

We found problems with the

0:02:060:02:19

Furby, the intelligent robot and the

cuddly toys, some of them had

0:02:190:02:23

problems with security. We found out

that all you really need is one of

0:02:230:02:28

these. Connecting via bluetooth.

Even just having the app. Sending

0:02:280:02:35

messages. The problem is that you

could be playing with your acrimony,

0:02:350:02:42

thinking that are talking to it, but

somebody could connect to that

0:02:420:02:48

without you realising. We want to

see the shops to stop selling these

0:02:480:02:52

straightaway and for those who have

been meeting these to make sure that

0:02:520:02:55

they are going to be safe and secure

so that when you are playing with

0:02:550:02:59

them at NBC.

The company that makes

the Furby has said that they take

0:02:590:03:07

the privacy seriously and are

confident that the RC. But Which

0:03:070:03:33

magazine have said that

0:03:330:03:34

This is Iq reporting for newsroom.

0:04:030:04:14

Next, this cute-looking new robot

stole the show at a huge

0:04:180:04:20

tech event in the US.

0:04:200:04:22

The bot, called Chloe,

got a case of stage fright

0:04:220:04:24

during a live demonstration of how

it can help around your home.

0:04:240:04:27

Am I ready on my cycle?

0:04:270:04:28

Oh no!

0:04:280:04:32

Even robots have bad days.

0:04:320:04:33

Chloe is just one of thousands

of new gadgets being unveiled this

0:04:330:04:36

week at the Consumer Electronics

Show.

0:04:360:04:38

Hope that goes little better.

Eight little ducklings

went swimming one day...

0:04:400:04:42

And ended up stuck in a water drain!

0:04:420:04:43

Yep, it's a true story

but with a happy ending...

0:04:430:04:47

The ducklings on Australia's Gold

Coast were rescued by firefighters

0:04:470:04:49

who shimmied down the drain

and scooped them up by hand.

0:04:490:04:52

They were then reunited

with their mum and waddled off

0:04:520:04:54

to a safe water spot nearby.

0:04:540:04:55

Thanks for watching.
