Alas, not all good solutions. Especially when you want to record in 4K. Plus the critical problem is the price. Many things are more dangerous for the budget.

Fortunately, there are different promotions and sales. It is realistic to find a decent model for the right price. Vivid proof — YI II from the company Xiaomi.

yi-iiAs the name suggests is a 2nd generation, modified and improved (compared to original). A kind of competitor to GoPro.

Sound answer 2 microphones. Also on Board are 2,19-inch display with a resolution of 640 by 360 pixels, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi adapter. The latter serves for wireless synchronization.

Developed technology that allows a taste of virtual objects

developed-technology-that-allows-a-taste-of-virtual-objectsDespite the rapid development of virtual reality technology, at the moment when immersed in virtual space involving only sight and hearing. Of course, there are various tactile technologies like vibration, force feedback and even such strange and humorous, but it is a workable solution, as Nosulus Rift. But with all this, to a full simulation is still far. On the other hand, perhaps very soon, in a virtual environment you can feel… the taste.

For the development of new technologies is responsible for two independent groups of scientists from the National University of Singapore and from University of Tokyo. Their developments are, if I may say so, to “simulate the taste sensations”.

The first development for the authorship of the Singapore inventors is created in 2013 and includes a special spoon with a grid of tiny electrodes. These electrodes when exposed to the taste buds of the tongue can imitate the bitter, sour and salty tastes. Unfortunately, the authors did not manage to get simulate the sweet taste, but it came from their Japanese colleagues.

The device of Japanese scientists working on the technology of the so-called thermal simulation: the working part of the device consists of tiny solid-state thermoelectric elements (or, if simpler, Peltier elements) that can be heated and cooled with an incredibly high speed. The algorithms of temperature control in such a way that upon contact with the tongue it causes a sensation of sweetness.

Both technologies are designed not only to make virtual reality more realistic, in terms of entertainment content, but also have a lot of applications that can help people. For example, such stimulation can give patients who have lost the ability to taste, to regain that feeling. Or, for example, the gadget may find applications in nutrition, when a person is very difficult to give up favorite foods in favor of useful, but not always delicious food.

Nokia — frameless smartphone with extra screen

nokiaNext year will enter the market of the smartphone under the Nokia brand, but its appearance is unknown. Designers-enthusiasts do not miss a chance to dream on this subject. Another vision was presented by the Zimbabwe-born Michael Muleba.



In his dreams the new Nokia in a fashionable frameless housing with curved sides for the main display and extra on the top to alert you to new developments. Physical buttons on the front are missing, they are useless – everything is hidden under the touch screen.
