Watch: Nissan Caravan Office Pod Revolutionizes Remote Working with Features From a Built-in Coffee



2020 was the year when practically everyone stayed at home, including workers who were lucky enough to still secure their jobs despite the pandemic and were able to work from home, which definitely has its fair share of advantages. Nissin NV350 Caravan Office Pod However, it's not surprising when soon enough, remote working became quite as stressful as working in an office. Besides the occasional (or sometimes frequent) funky connection, hardware issues, and hour-long Zoom calls, it can be frustrating at times to see nothing but the same four walls each day, all day long--but Nissan might soon have the solution for that very problem with the "caravan office pod." The Japan-based car manufacturer introduced the NV350 caravan, which also serves as a portable office pod where you can bring your work anywhere you like. According to DigitalTrends, the car has several features, including an area where you can relocate your office, complete with the desk and then the high-end Herman Miller Cosm office chair, at the back of the van so you can work outdoors, say the beach or a campsite near the river, where the sound of the water can relax you and make you more productive. Nissan has also created a smartphone app that basically allows you to control the retractable office pod. From a Built-in Coffee Station to a Rooftop Deck Based on the concept video they have published, all you need to do is tap something on your smartphone and then the office pod will come out from the back of the van, giving you the perfect view when you work. The pod also includes a polycarbonate floor, so you can see the ground beneath you. When it's time to chill and have a break, you can climb on top of the van for a rooftop deck, where you can prop a beach umbrella and then lounge in what seems to be a built-in lounge chair. The rooftop deck is accessible via an interior staircase. What's more, there's a built-in coffee station, which you will be needing if you want to survive hours of work. There are a few other features, such as an electric shade, and AC/DC inverter, and a compartment with a built-in UV antibacterial lamp, where you can store and then sanitize a few things, such as your gadgets, to ensure you don't bring any outdoor bacteria, germs, and viruses into your home--an essential and in-demand feature brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. When Will it be Released? So, when does Nissin release the NV350 caravan office pod? Unfortunately, the caravan office pod is still a concept design and there's no word if the company will actually start making them and how soon they can produce them for the masses. Also, will it still be possible to work remotely once the van is launched, especially when the pandemic might be ending sooner, thanks to the COVID-19 vaccines? ...

Parler Back Online with Epik Hosting Platform; CEO Sends Message to Supporters and Bashers

Parler is back, and this is not a drill as its CEO John Matze, posts a status update that addresses both "lovers and haters" with a revolutionary tone that signifies the return of its website from the recent Amazon AWS Ban. Hosting the returning "free speech" platform is Epik, who also spoke on Parler's behalf, saying that de-platforming is a "kneejerk reaction." The website that calls itself to host "free speech of the internet," Parler, is near to making a comeback on its online platform with John Matze welcoming both lovers and haters for its return. The CEO's message in the platform seems like it has survived a massive disaster in its life and is coming back with the "better than ever" vibes. Initially, recent controversies were linked to Parler and were considered too risky and threatening to leave its availability to the millions of its users, ensuing in a multiplatform ban from Amazon, Apple, and Google. Even the "free speech of the internet's" hosting service and vendors backed out on them when tragedy struck and put Parler in a tight spot. Parler is Back: Website Now Online, Technical Difficulties under Fix John Matze posted a status update on Parler's website, dating last Saturday, January 16, and says "Hello world, is this thing on?" which resembles a "funny" approach of a comedian in a comedy bar. Under the website is a headline that says "Technical Difficulties" that also has a short message to both the platform's "lovers and haters." The website has been removed by its recent host, Amazon Web Services, and now, it is adapting upon finding a new partner and ally on the internet, with Epik. Parler is under construction and is promising that it would bring back what it has started in during its establishment, up to the recent events when it hosted former Facebook and Twitter users who have been censored. Parler offers a platform where users would entirely free, without jurisdictions, prohibitions, and constant monitoring from its administrators and moderators (if there was one on the website). Matze considers Parler to be a "civil discourse" on the internet that does not hold bars when it comes to posts, shares, groups, or events. Parler's New Haven: Epik Hosting Services Opens its Doors According to CNN, Parler's new home and haven on the internet is Epik, a hosting service that is known for its affiliation with 4chan, which is also a "free" English-based imageboard website that also rose to prominence. Parler registered its website to Epik's host service and was officially established last Sunday, which marked the beginning of its return. Epik also released a statement on Parler's behalf, saying that the fate of the "free speech of the internet" was a "kneejerk reaction" which they believe is unfair to the website because of the stirring controversy. Parler's de-platforming which included its applications to bid farewell is something Epik sees as unethical.

WhatsApp: 4 Things it Does to Stop Users from Switching to Signal and Telegram

Ever since WhatsApp has rolled out its brand new terms of service, the company ahs been caught up in a whirlwind. The change of its policies have caused a massive exodus as users are now flocking to alternative apps. According to an article by AndroidPolice, while WhatsApp looks like it is losing its ground in major markets all around the world, the Facebook-owned messenger service have pushed back the deadline for users to forcefully accept the new terms or have their accounts terminated. The company is now actively seeking to control the huge damage that this announcement has caused them. Here are the things WhatsApp is doing to try to gain back their users. 1. WhatsApp released a message to its users that they do not read users chats or that they listen to calls and that it also does not share contacts with Facebook. 2. WhatsApp promises that it "respects and protects" users' privacy. However, the company has reportedly lost over a hundred of thousand dollars in the Indian market which is currently a strong user base, according to an article by Reuters. 3. WhatsApp promises that the new policy does not actually affect users privacy when it comes to friends and family. However, it does not address the topic of the amount of metadata that it collects. 4. WhatsApp posts on Deccan Herald, Business Line, and other newspapers that it protects user data and respects their privacy. Is WhatsApp a dangerous App? Despite the efforts being made by WhatsApp, it is still seen that the app is losing its massive user base as a lot of its users now flock to both Telegram and Signal over the course of just a couple of days. Although the announcement just recently came out, it looks like the damage that it caused was substantial. When the whole news broke out regarding WhatsApp's new policy, the recent richest man in the world, Elon Musk, who had just taken over Jeff Bezos, suggested that users "use Signal." This single tweet was very timely as Elon Musk had just become the richest man in the world which meant that a lot of attention was being given to everything that the billionaire said.

Venezuela's Nicolás Maduro sends oxygen to tackle Brazil's Covid crisis

Venezuela’s strongman president, Nicolás Maduro, has sent an emergency shipment of oxygen to his country’s border with Brazil in a politically charged gesture he said was to help alleviate “Jair Bolsonaro’s public health disaster”. In recent days the Brazilian state of Amazonas, which borders southern Venezuela, has been plunged into coronavirus chaos for the second time in under a year. Reporting from Latin America: 'Coronavirus has proved an intensely political story' Read more Last week Covid-19 patients reportedly died in the state capital, Manaus, after hospitals ran out of oxygen amid a surge in infections and deaths. Since then civil society groups, celebrities and the Brazilian government have been scrambling to get life-saving supplies to the remote riverside metropolis. Maduro, who enjoys a toxic relationship with Brazil’s far-right president, announced his aid offer in a Sunday night broadcast. “Venezuela is reaching out to the people of Amazonas in solidarity … and we hope this oxygen reaches the people of Brazil fast … The trucks are on their way,” he said as state television aired images of a convoy supposedly heading to the border town of Santa Elena de Uairén¿. Maduro said Brazil was facing an “alarming situation in the face of Jair Bolsonaro’s public health disaster”. “What a painful and sad situation,” the leftist added, claiming a “a veritable international scandal” was playing out in Amazonas. “It hurts us, as Bolivarians, as the children of Bolívar, to see our Latin American brothers [like this].” Maduro called the shipment an act of Christian charity, but it is also an obvious attempt to score political points over Bolsonaro, whose jumbled and anti-scientific handling of the pandemic has been internationally condemned. Brazil’s president was a key member of the US-backed coalition that tried to topple Maduro and Bolsonaro allowed Donald Trump’s secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, to visit Brazil’s border with Venezuela on the eve of last year’s US presidential election. While on Brazilian territory, Pompeo labelled Maduro a drug trafficker who had destroyed his country. Many members of the Brazilian left celebrated Maduro’s gesture. “From day one of his presidency Bolsonaro has insulted … the governors and people of Venezuela. And now, wouldn’t you know it, it’s … the governors and people of Venezuela helping save the people of Manaus,” tweeted former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, accusing Bolsonaro of showing “inhuman indifference” to the city’s plight. Members of Venezuela’s opposition, however, denounced Maduro’s intervention as a cynical ploy designed to improve his shabby international reputation. They remembered how thousands of Venezuelan refugees had escaped into the Brazilian Amazon in recent years, fleeing poverty, hunger, violence and a devastated public health system. ...

Apple FINALLY redesigning the iMac for 2021 (and we can't wait)

We've made our feelings known about the design of Apple's current Mac line up over the last few months. Pretty much every new release in 2020 sported a familiar (read: old) design, with arguably the worst offender being the 2020 iMac. Last year's machine looks identical to every iMac released since as far back as 2012. But if new leaks are to be believed, the 2021 iMac is finally about to buck the trend. According to Bloomberg, the first iMac makeover in almost a decade will not only involve reducing the display's gargantuan bezels, but it will also see the machine's curved back flattened to allow a much slimmer profile. It may still be our best computer for graphic design, but anything that makes the iMac look like it belongs here in the 2020s can only be a good thing. New story: Apple plans first iMac redesign in nearly a decade with new look reminiscent of the Pro Display XDR. Also coming: Intel Mac Pro refresh, a new half-sized Apple Silicon Mac Pro (a modern day PowerMac G4 Cube), and a cheaper standalone monitor. https://t.co/pLtNm6D34wJanuary 15, 2021 Bloomberg reports that the new iMac, slated for release in 2021, will feature a design reminiscent of Apple's sleek (but ludicrously expensive) Pro Display XDR (below), which features tiny bezels and and an ultra-slim body. Indeed, next to the 2019's Pro Display, the 2020 iMac can only be described using one of the internet's favourite words: chonky. And the good news for iMac fans doesn't end there. Along with a brand new design, the 2021 iMac is reported to feature Apple's brand new and incredible speedy M1 chip, currently only found in the new MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and Mac Mini. Released in November, the new chip is a game-changer for creatives – and we're surprised to see that the M1 MacBooks have already been given an unexpected price cut. When Apple revealed the 'brand new' 2020 iMac last summer, we couldn't help but feel a little disappointed by the familiar design – especially with incredible fan-made renders such as this iPad Pro-inspired iMac doing the rounds online. But with an M1 chip and a contemporary new look, it seems 2021 could breathe new life into the iMac, and confirm its role as the desktop to beat for creatives. And with the MacBook Pro also in line for a design refresh, it's looking like an exciting year for Apple fans. Looking for the most future-proof Mac experience available right now? Check out today's best M1 Mac deals below, and don't forget to swing by our Apple New Year sales page for even more unbeatable offers.

Biden won’t lift Europe, Brazil travel restrictions despite Trump order, spokeswoman says

Biden’s transition team said it won’t lift the travel restrictions after Trump ordered they be lifted on Jan. 26, after he leaves office and when U.S.-bound travelers will need to show a negative Covid test before flying. Trump had banned most foreign visitors from Europe and Brazil early in the pandemic to curb the spread of the virus. Restrictions on visitors who have been in China and Iran are not included in Trump’s order. The incoming Biden administration on Monday said it won’t lift an entry ban on most visitors from Europe, the U.K. and Brazil, shortly after President Donald Trump ordered an end to the Covid-19 travel restrictions. “With the pandemic worsening, and more contagious variants emerging around the world, this is not the time to be lifting restrictions on international travel,” tweeted President-elect Joe Biden’s spokeswoman Jen Psaki. Trump first put the rules in place in March in an effort to curb the spread of the virus, though Covid-19 was already circulating in the U.S. before then. On Monday evening, he issued a proclamation rescinding the restrictions, just two days before Biden’s inauguration. The rules prohibit entry to the U.S. for most non-U.S. citizens if they had been in Brazil, the 26 countries in the Schengen area of Europe, Ireland or the U.K. within the past two weeks. Trump’s proclamation Monday came less than a week after the U.S. said it would require travelers, including U.S. citizens, flying to the U.S. from abroad, to test negative for Covid-19 before flying. That requirement takes effect on Jan. 26 — the same day the travel restrictions would be lifted. Trump said it would keep restrictions on travel from Iran and China. Much of Europe still bars most U.S. citizens. Airlines have repeatedly asked the U.S. government to replace the bans, which have contributed to a plunge in demand and billions in losses, with preflight Covid testing. International travel volumes have dropped more than domestic travel during the pandemic.

Linux M1 Chip Mac: Corellium Releases Early Beta of New OS for Download

Apple's best SoC ARM-based chip for the Mac, the M1, now has the chance to meet one of the best and top tier computer-based operating system, Linux OS, thanks to Corellium who recently released its early beta. Downloads are already available for users worldwide, but its developers and team are suggesting to wait for another confirmation for its beta release. Linux is a developer-preferred operating system that differs from the more user-friendly OS in the world, which is the Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac. The operating system faced the trials of time, usability, and number of users, to which it did not falter, and remained to be one of the most preferred, being a kernel that eluded UNIX and its core code. The company that is known for creating a bug finder in Apple's operating system (and initially won a lawsuit against the Cupertino giant), Corellium, has developed a Linux OS that can run on the latest ARM-based chip. While macOS 11, also known as the "Big Sur," is the main OS, Apple's Mac also accommodates other OS like Windows and Linux on its platform. Corellium's M1 Mac 'Very Early Beta' Release According to Corellium's tweet and CTO Chris Wade (@CorelliumHQ), the company has released a "very early beta" of the Linux OS that can run on Apple's M1 chip, enabling a multiplatform run on Mac computers. However, this release, being on the early beta, is recommended for advanced users who know how to run it without assistance from the company. The Corellium CTO has already issued a fair warning for people regarding Linux's complexity in downloading, installing, and running on the next-generation ARM-based chips of the Mac lineup. The company is still in the early stages of Linux's Mac version development and is still working on integrating it fully on the new platform by Apple. ...

Microsoft Teams Tracks Everything From How Many Times You Replied to Reasons Why You Blocked Somebod

Microsoft Teams was initially launched in 2017, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, has gained more attention in 2020 as workers had to start working remotely to avoid further spread of the virus, but many were not exactly happy with how Teams work. Microsoft 365 Productivity Score Teams is a team collaboration software, wherein employers and employees can easily communicate in real-time, making collaboration easier, as if everyone is in the same office working together. The software has a variety of different features besides the chat and video conferencing ones, such as a task managing system. But besides collaboration, Microsoft Teams also help employers keep track of their employees, although that's exactly why some people aren't as excited about using a software that has practically everything you need. According to ZDNet, people began questioning and criticizing Teams when the company decided to include a feature known as the 365 Productivity Score, which practically rates how productive employees seem to be based on how much they use Microsoft 365 products, such as Teams, Word, and Excel. How Teams Can Track You Although the feature is not as intense as other employee tracking software that tracks keyboard and mouse use, constant screenshots of your device, or even low-key taking images through your webcam, many are still not convinced that Microsoft's Productivity Score can actually gauge a worker's productivity, especially when they are working from home. Moreover, some experts still believe that it's an extensive workplace surveillance tool despite the lack of the creepier features. In order to calculate productivity scores, Microsoft 365 will have to track everything, from how many emails you have sent, how many replies you made, which channels you replied to, how many times you posted on Yammer, and so much more. With that, Teams will have to track every movement users make while on the platform. According to the online tech magazine, Teams will be able to check data of all of your voice chats, shared meetings, voicemails, files, and the details you have in your profile such as your email address and number. This is all part of the Terms and Conditions of the platform, which you can read fully via Microsoft's website. The company is open about what they track and store since June of 2020. Is Your Boss Spying on You? Then, back in September, the tech giant offered more to its users, such as recording how many urgent messages are shared, the number of messages a user sent in a private chat, and apparently, the reasons behind why you blocked someone, and a whole lot more. The numbers for scheduled meetings and ad hoc are separated. Many employees who are using Microsoft Teams are rather worried about their managers' use of the platform, such as the concern of one Reddit user who posted on the forum website to ask if their boss may be using the platform for surveillance. ...

Colbeck Capital Management on Plastics: Public Enemy ¿1

Plastic was once lauded as one of the world's greatest inventions but has since become the most important environmental concern for many social influencers. The primary reason for this change is recycling, especially single-use items such as plastic bottles and bags. The role that plastic plays in climate change has been actively debated for decades, but many of these results are suspect. However, the actual costs and benefits of plastic can be surprising as Colbeck Capital Management delves into on their Limited Liabilities Medium blog. Overview Plastic was originally invented to conserve natural resources. Billiards was an extremely popular game in the United States during the 19th century, but one elephant tusk was needed to make three billiard balls. One billiard ball supplier offered a $10,000 award in 1863 to the first inventor to develop a substitute for ivory. John Hyatt invented celluloid six years later, but he never collected the prize since the balls made from this material made a mild explosion when they collided with each other. Plastics are synthetic polymers, which are long molecular chains composed of repeating components known as monomers. This complex structure makes the plastic more difficult to recycle than simple materials like aluminum, glass, and steel. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is the world's most heavily recycled plastic, but only about one-fourth of it is recycled. Furthermore, the majority of this recycling activity uses plastic for less demanding applications, rather than converting it back into bottles. This process requires 50 to 75 percent virgin plastic, meaning that recycling plastic is often impractical for any purpose other than marketing. History Earlier generations came much closer to closed-loop recycling simply because they couldn't afford to waste anything. For example, clothing was once very labor-intensive to manufacture, so every scrap had to be reused as much as possible. Composting consisted of throwing unwanted food scraps into the street, where it could be eaten by a roaming pig or sold as fertilizer. The use of plastic on a commercial scale promised an era of convenience and cleanliness after World War II. Its annual use at that time was two million tons, which has grown to 380 million tons today. Colbeck Capital Management also points out that the annual usage of plastic will exceed one billion tons before the end of the 21st century. Only nine percent of the total plastic produced is ever recycled, resulting in large islets made of plastic in the Pacific Ocean. Major plastics manufacturers such as Dow, DuPont, Exxon, and Mobil have responded to this crisis by spending $40 million to develop plastic-recycling technology. However, they spent another $250 million on an ad campaign promoting the value of plastic. As Roger Bernstein of the American Chemistry Council explained, "As soon as [consumers] recycle your product, they feel better about it." ...

Smartwatches may detect the signs of COVID-19 before you know you're sick

Smartwatches and fitness wearables may be able to play a valuable role in the early detection of COVID-19, according to recent studies. Researchers from Mount Sinai have found that the Apple Watch can detect small changes to a user’s heartbeat that may indicate they have the coronavirus, a full week before they feel sick, as CBS News reported. One company is even developing a custom wearable to detect COVID-19 — all of which could help stop the spread of the disease by keeping asymptomatic folks at home. In a study titled called “Warrior Watch,” the Mount Sinai researchers followed a group of 297 health care workers between April 29 and September 29. The participants wore Apple Watches equipped with special apps that measured changes in their heart rate variability (HRV). “The watch showed significant changes in HRV metrics up to seven days before individuals had a positive nasal swab confirming COVID-19 infection,” said study author Robert P. Hirten, MD. A similar study done by Stanford University found that participants wearing a variety of trackers from Garmin, Fitbit, Apple and others found that 81 percent of patients testing positive for coronavirus had changes in their resting heart rate up to nine and half days prior to the onset of symptoms. One of the challenging things about COVID-19 is that many people are asymptomatic, meaning they have no symptoms but are still contagious. This makes it difficult to contain this infection by using the traditional method of identifying someone who is sick and quarantining them. The ramifications of the studies are clear. “Developing a way to identify people who might be sick even before they know they are infected would really be a breakthrough in the management of COVID-19,” Dr. Hirten said. “This technology allows us not only to track and predict health outcomes, but also to intervene in a timely and remote manner, which is essential during a pandemic that requires people to stay apart.” The researchers aren’t the only ones to notice that early COVID-19 symptoms that can be picked up by a smartwatch. A company called NeuTigers, born out of research from Princeton University, has developed an artificial intelligence product called CovidDeep that can help identify people with the virus in clinical situations or care homes. The company used a clinical-grade patient monitoring wearable, the Empatica E4, to take a variety of skin, heart-rate and blood pressure readings. Feeding that information into CovidDeep, they found they could detect the virus at a rate of 90 percent — more accurately than typical temperature screenings. They eventually plan to produce their own app that could work with Fitbit, Withings, Apple, Samsung and other smartwatches. ...

Samsung confirms that future phones - like Note 21 - won’t come with chargers

One change Samsung made for the Samsung Galaxy S21 range wasn’t an addition but a loss, as it’s not including charging plugs or earphones in the box, and the company has now confirmed that this change won’t be limited to the Galaxy S21 range. In a Q&A post on the company’s mobile press page, Patrick Chomet, EVP and Head of the Customer Experience Office at Samsung, said the following: “We believe that the gradual removal of charger plugs and earphones from our in-box device packaging can help address sustainable consumption issues and remove any pressure that consumers may feel towards continually receiving unnecessary charger accessories with new phones.” Read our hands-on Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus review Check out our hands-on Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra review We're still waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 A gradual change From that it sounds like the goal is ultimately to no longer include a charging plug or earphones with any Samsung phone – or any other relevant Samsung devices either. However, the mention of this being a “gradual removal” suggests it won’t be a sudden change. In other words, some future Samsung phones probably will still have one or both of those things in the box, but others probably won’t, and over time they’ll become less common. Samsung also gave reasons for their removal, explaining that many of its customers are reusing their old accessories, and that no longer including a charging plug or earphones is more environmentally sustainable. The company also notes that it’s been including standardized USB-C charging ports since 2017, meaning that older chargers will still work with newer Samsung Galaxy devices. As for which upcoming phones will keep or lose their chargers and earphones, we can only really speculate for now, but it’s likely at the very least that the Samsung Galaxy S22 range won’t have these things in the box, since the S21 range doesn’t.

Intel Kills 300 Series Chipset a Few Months Before 500 Series Launch



Intel has recently decided to discontinue its previous 300 series chipset, which actually supported the company's own Coffee Lake microprocessors. The whole motherboard family had initially debuted this back in 2017 and was able to support Intel's very own 8th and 9th gen processors. What is 300 Series Intel? According to an article by Gizmodo, during its launch, boards that were based on both the H370 and Z370 chipsets were considered as some of the fastest consumer silicon available for purchase. The Core i7-8700K was reportedly a great chip and other CPUs just like the Core i9-9900K actually kept this particular platform competitive along with AMD hardware until the official launch of the popular Zen 2 / Ryzen 3000 family of its processors back in mid-2019. The main retirement of these 300 series is expected to happen in only a few months before Intel is expected to officially launch the Rocket Lake CPUs. Intel is expected to launch a new 500 series alongside these new CPUs. The company reportedly does not have a reason not to do this. But any advances for those over and above the current 400 series are said to be small. Intel 300 series chipset motherboards Intel has already given its disclosure saying the Rocket Lake will be okay in the 400 series motherboards. Other rumors now suggest that the Comet Lake CPUs will actually similarly work well in its 500 series motherboards. When it comes to the production standpoint, it really does make sense. Intel as well as other companies just like them are all having trouble with getting the needed production capabilities in order for them to keep up with demands. CPUs, GPUs, as well as other components have actually been or still are affected. With Intel now playing catch-up with its competitor AMD in supporting the new PCIe 4.0, it can be understood as to why it now wants to focus more on its newer improvements as well as be even more forward thinking when it comes to its production approach. Read Also: Linus Torvalds Picks AMD Threadripper 3970X After 15 Years of Intel-Based Processors Intel 300 series GPU The 400-series chipsets are now based on the brand new LGA 1200 socket, which technically supports the newer PCIe 4.0 standard Intel plans to be able to incorporate with its brand new 11th gen desktop processors, according to an article by KitGuru. This makes it a bit tricky for those consumers that still want to stick to Intel. Chipset compatibility is something that AMD has an advantage over Intel on as of the moment. Depending on the particular CPU, AMD processors actually work across a number of multiple generations of motherboards. This means the Ryzen 2000 series would work on 300, 400, and even 500 series chipsets. The Ryzen 3000 and 5000 series would work along with 400 and 500 series chipsets. IT is also worth noting that AMD's very own Ryzen 3000 series APUs actually work well along with 300, 400, and also 500 series chipsets.

New Apple Glasses Leak Suggests 2021 Release: Price, Video, and MORE!

In 2018, the Augmented Reality plans for Apple continued with various discussions among other companies such as EMagin to produce OLED display components to be used for the AR headset. It was echoed by Ming-Chi Kuo, when he asid that the first mass production of Apple's AR devices would launch in the year 2019 to 2020, but that the schedule was still ambiguous. facebook twitter reddit google+ Comment HOME TECH GADGETS New Apple Glasses Leak Suggests 2021 Release: Price, Video, and MORE! 6 January 2021, 2:56 am EST By Nikki A.

LG Gaming Monitor 2021: LG to Introduce Bendable OLED Monitor at the CES 2021 Convention



LG is gearing up to debut a new gaming monitor at CES 2021, and this monitor has a screen that is bendable. The said screen can transform from flat to curved in just one click of a button. LG bendable gaming monitor With Samsung's foldable phones becoming a massive hit despite its shortcomings, people have witnessed exciting developments from the devices and gadgets of other companies who wants to follow suit. There have been numerous foldable and rollable TVs that can be tucked away when not in use, so it is not a surprise that LG has now extended that technology to gaming monitors too, as it gives a practical way to reduce the number of screens that are necessary in your home. Also Read:LG's Fully Autonomous Robot Will Use UV Light to Disinfect Public Places According to Engadget, the "Bendable CSO or Cinematic Sound OLED display will be a 48-in 4K monitor with a flat mode for watching movies and TV shows, and it has an option to curve or bend if the user wants to switch it to gaming mode. This would not be LG's first release of foldable screens as its first commercially available rollable TV is now on sale in South Korea, and at CES 2020, LG has debuted plans for a display that pulls down from the ceiling, much like a projector screen. What the main difference now is that the Cinematic Sound feature can turn the whole panel into a speaker, according to The Verge. OLED features OLED technology has been around for some time now, but it was only recently that it started breaking into the mainstream monitor and TV markets. Displays utilizing this technology remain few, and they can be pricy. OLED monitors have faster pixel response times and they also have better contrast ratios, even though their expensive prices makes the less approachable than regular monitors, according to Gaming Stan. Whenever you see a display that is marked as LED monitor or LED TV, what it really means is LED LCD. This means that the displayed monitor or TV utilizes an LED backlight and an LCD panel. Meanwhile, OLED technology does not use an active backlight. Instead, OLED's pixel is illuminated independently and each pixel function as its own light source. LG's bendable monitor is only a demo model at this point, and if it sees mainstream release, this design will carry an expensive price tag, no doubt. The LG rollable OLED was released at a whooping ¿100,000,000 in South Korea, and $87,000 in the United States, which then converts to £67,000 or AU$123,000. However, the limited range of movement compared to a folding phone or rollable TV should mean that it is more durable and if it can replace your usual TV, soundbar and gaming monitor, it is definitely one to place on your list. ...

Google Wings May Be Affected by New Drone Laws in the US, Privacy May be Jeopardized



Last week, the United States government made the biggest set of changes to drone law in the country. The government has ruled that almost every drone in the United States airspace will need to tell their exact locations and the locations of their pilots. This is in order to address safety, national security and law enforcement concerns regarding the integration of the aircraft into the airspace of the country. Google's response to drone law Google expressed their distaste about the new rules. The company's drone delivery subsidiary called Google Wing wrote a post about the new law. The statement was posted by Reuters titled "Broadcast-Only Remote Identification of Drones May Have Unintended Consequences for American Consumers." Also Read: How to Start Vlogging? Consider Checking Camera Drones The post argues that the FAA's decision to have drones report their location might let observers track the movements of the drones and the pilot. Observers may also figure out where the pilot is, and also track personal information such as home address, PO Boxes and other sensitive data. Google Wing also stated that American communities would not accept this kind of surveillance of their deliveries or road trips, and this should also not be accepted in airspace. Google Wing during the pandemic The Google Wing drone delivery system created and developed by Google is currently being used in the country by numerous residents. It was at its peak during the coronavirus lockdown on the first half of 2020, when the drone delivered medicine and toiletries to people. Google Wing is run by Google's parent company called Alphabet Inc., and the service had been running numerous test programs since 2019. Right after completing the tests, the coronavirus pandemic hit the United States. When the lockdown happened, the program of Google Wing was fixed just in time to deliver baby food, medicine, canned goods, toiletries and other essentials to people who were in need, especially those in rural areas. Wing CEO James Ryan Burgess told Dezeen that since the outbreak started, they have seen a significant increase in requests for deliveries. They have made more than 1,000 deliveries in April 2020 alone. Google Wing's drones have a wingspan of a meter. It can carry parcels that weigh up to 1.3kg and it can fly for about 12 miles. Google started testing its drone delivery service in Australia back in 2014, where the unmanned aerial cars dropped off dog treats and first aid kits for those who lived in the Australian outback. Customers can submit their order through an app, and it will prompt the drone to fly to a delivery facility to pick up the specific item that is packed in a cardboard carrier. The drone then flies to its destination, laden with package, at a specific altitude, before dropping and hovering seven meters above ground to deliver the package. ...
