Snapdragon 820 50% faster than Exynos 7420

Samsung has terminated its partnership with Qualcomm after falling into overheating Snapdragon 810, replacing it with the Galaxy S6 with its own Exynos 7420 processor. The Korean corporation will probably have to apologize to his former partner, because it turns out that Snapdragon 820 is half faster than his own layout.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is not a sales hit, as the manufacturer expected it, so in the next model the concern has to make more and make the smartphone even more attractive in the eyes of customers.

It is possible that the manufacturer will decide to return to Qualcomm processors, with which he broke up with problems with Snapdragon 810 due to overheating of the chip. So far, Samsung uses its own Exynos 7420 processor, but the latest data provided by Chinese analyst Mr. Juitanga shows that the Snapdragon 820 is half the faster. The new chip is manufactured with 14nm FinFET technology and features an LTE Cat 10 modem that allows data rates up to 450 Mbit / s.…

Independent parking in the BMW 7 Series also soon in the US

One of the most interesting features of the new BMW 7 Series G11 is the automatic parking and garage access mode, which allows the driver to remotely enter a vehicle into it and then move it out. Due to the regulations, this feature is not available on the US market but a BMW representative promises to be made available as soon as possible.

Automated parking in the new BMW 7 Series is practically available in all markets except the US. The Bavarian concern decided to remove this feature from cars sold in the United States because of legal regulations. Automation violates federal regulations that prohibit vehicles from moving independently if the cockpit does not have a man in the cockpit.

However, the Department of Transport has stated that BMW will soon receive the appropriate permits to make this option available to American customers as well.…

Floating swarm of drones in action

The US Navy showed a video showing the latest autonomous SWAT units built in the action. Small boats can operate in a completely self-contained mode, protecting large ships against attack by other units. And thanks to the on-board weapons, they do it extremely well.

In a few years, the American military will have not only unmanned flying units that attack air targets, but also autonomous floating units that will be able to attack surface targets immediately. These types of machines are designed under the SWARM program and as shown below, they can work very well. Moreover, they have armaments, so they can also target their targets.

Their operation is possible thanks to the CARACaS (Control Architecture for Robotic Agent Command and Sensing) system, which allows them to operate independently and in constant contact with other drones, exchanging their own routes and data from radars. Thanks to that they not only do not fall for themselves, but they can also coordinate their actions.…

NASA will finance the study of the solar system

The US space agency has signed a contract with four teams of scientists to investigate our solar system. Research scheduled for the next five years will be funded entirely by NASA.

While NASA employs many of its own researchers, it also often benefits from the help of universities and nonprofits that help agencies in a variety of projects. At one time, even a special Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI) was created specifically for this purpose, designed for independent scientists who are engaged in the study of our solar system.

Now four new teams of scientists have been invited to work on different projects and will study Mars’ Phobos and Deimos, as well as the moon and asteroid belt, and will be involved in a number of other space exploration projects.

The first team is a University of Colorado scientist who has been involved in robotics, cosmology, astrophysics and helio-physiology with the intention of deepening on manned space exploration. Another team was assigned to the TREX (Survey and Exploration Tools) project, and his task will be to develop tools and methods for the exploration of extraterrestrial celestial bodies covered by dust such as asteroids and moons.

A third team from the Institute of Technology in Georgia will study the impact of radiation on man-made composites. Also check that modern detectors can minimize the risk of human exposure to harmful radiation. The last team will be working on the ESPRESSO (Exploration Science Pathfinder Research for Enhancing Solar System Observations) project and will help NASA better understand dangerous events that could be a threat to astronauts and space exploration robots.…

Robust 3D printer

3D printers are quite expensive devices, so manufacturers use different methods to reduce production costs, most often by using cheaper components, which can adversely affect the overall life of the equipment. Printer makers called Trinus prove, however, that the hardware can not only be tough but also cheap.

Trinus is a project of Kodama Inc., which is inspired by the idea of ​​creating a cheap 3D printer, and one that will not break down after a while because of the plastic components used to reduce production costs.

Trinus designers did not go easy, but they used metal components in their printers to provide higher endurance and better print quality, but at the same time they managed to maintain a very affordable price. The printer will be offered for less than $ 500.

The printer is made of aluminum and steel elements, attached to a metal frame and metal internal components. There are no transmission belts or plastic sprockets, and many components are removable, including a laser printhead. The printer also works with a wide range of materials such as PLA, ABX, PC, wood and many others that can be used to produce items.

The advantage of the device is its simple construction and the future user can easily handle the purchase of a printer, as there are only eleven items to connect. The manufacturer claims that even someone without technical knowledge is able to handle this task within a maximum of 30 minutes.

Typical print speed is 70 mm / s but can be increased to a maximum of 150 mm / s. The minimum thickness of the applied layer is 50 microns. The laser head can also engrave in wood, leather, food, cork and other soft materials.

Trinus will be available in August and without a laser head will cost $ 299, while the buyer will receive 45 g of PoluMaker fiber. For an additional $ 40 will receive a heated stand, while for another $ 25 will get 750 grams of filament. With an engraving head, the printer will cost more than $ 379.…

Emotional detection band

Planextra announces a new product called Sence. It is a small band that, despite appearances, is not a fitness monitor. This device detects our emotions and is said to be able to do it with great accuracy.

You have certainly heard the so-called. Emotion rings, or gadgets capable of detecting our emotions and exposing them by changing the color of the backlight. If that product you liked, then you will certainly be interested in its much more up-to-date version called Sence.

It is a product of Planextra, which appeared on Kickstarter. It’s a small wristband that is designed to identify our emotions. The product uses the technique used by the electrocardiograph and measures the electrical activity of our heart. Based on this data, it can recognize our emotions and how the manufacturer declares it can identify as many as 64.…

X F1 controlled by the mind

Formula 1 cars are fairly safe, but an open cockpit makes the driver’s head stick out of the way when hit with parts of broken vehicles, which in the past have happened several times in the past. McLaren engineers have developed a concept model with a closed cockpit.

The McLaren MP4-X F1 is the concept of a Formula 1 futuristic car that may be seen in a few years’ time. The vehicle is definitely different from the currently used cars because it has a closed cockpit. The special cover was designed to protect the driver’s head from impacting elements that could fall off the vehicle during an accident. In addition, it improves the aerodynamics of the vehicle.

It’s not the only changes that have been made to it. It was also equipped with a special suspension, which in the event of a collision would return to its original shape, so the accident would not mean the end of the race and the driver could continue with it. Moreover, there are special sensors which, after collisions, will allow you to assess the overall condition of the vehicle, providing information on possible damage.

The cockpit is also equipped with enhanced reality technology and HUD displaying the most needed information, similar to those used by fighter pilots. The most interesting is the control system of the car, because there is no standard steering wheel. This was replaced by a special system that allows the car to run with the mind.…
