Airlines to Have Electric Planes as Zero-Emission Solution! But, is This Possible for Commercial Fli

Airlines are currently expected to use electric planes on their commercial flights. This innovation would be the zero-emission effort of various travel agencies across the globe. A passenger looks at his phone while waiting aboard a United Airlines plane before taking off from George Bush Intercontinental Airport on May 11, 2020 in Houston, Texas. Air travel is down as estimated 94 percent due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and major U.S. airlines are taking a major financial hit with losses of $350 million to $400 million a day and nearly half of major carriers airplanes are sitting idle. However, is it possible to use a battery-powered aircraft in commercial air travel? First, you need to remember that various airlines have airplanes carrying hundreds of passengers. Right now, electric planes are already operating, but they can only carry less than one hundred individuals. If travel agencies want to have commercial airplanes relying on batteries, manufacturers need to use advanced battery models that can actually lift more than one hundred passengers. Now, some travel agencies signed a pact to decrease greenhouse gas emissions during the recent United Nations Climate Summit, which happened in Glasgow. Airlines to Have Electric Planes? According to ABC News' latest report, various travel companies promised that they would soon have net-zero carbon emissions. These include Alaska Airlines, as well as other United States carriers. If this is true, then they need to let go of the aircraft models that rely on regular fuel. A plane comes into land at Heathrow Airport on March 16, 2007 in London. A US government agency has announced that winter in the Northern Hemisphere this year has been the warmest since records began. Air travel continues to be a major source of debate; attempts to slow climate change with radical policies are being tabled by scientists and politicians. Hybrid buses, which use a combination of diesel and electric power. "Sustainability is a place that we all realize we have to scale," said Alaska Airlines' Senior Vice President of Sustainability, Birkett Rakow. But, if airlines want to have electric commercial plane models, the aircraft should be integrated with batteries that are more efficient and larger than those used in electric vehicles. If you want to see more details, you can visit this link. Advanced Electric Planes Right Now CNBC reported that one of the most advanced electric planes right now is developed by Rolls-Royce. The luxurious automaker's new Spirit of Innovation electric aircraft is currently the fastest battery-powered plane. Based on the latest test flight, the new airplane achieved a whopping 387 mph. In other news, the new Tesla delivery policy change states that your order could be canceled if you continue delaying deliveries. On the other hand, 7,000 EV chargers are expected to arrive in Europe. ...

Google Chromebook to Release New Feature that Detects if 'Someone is Looking at Your Screen' | Sno

Google Chromebook is releasing a new feature that allows units to detect if "someone is looking at your screen" through its new snooping detection option. Enabling this feature would allow the camera to check if someone is looking at the users' Chromebook. Google Chrome as the Perfect Productivity Machine According to the story by Android Police, unlike a lot of Android tablets, Chromebooks actually make for great productivity machines the moment the user opens their box. This would probably explain why the models have been adopted by schools as well as office workers alike while offering a simple UI at a low entry cost. The publication notes that those that have been planning to purchase the Chromebook for work, might want to wait until future models come out since they could include more improved security features. The Chromebooks have been known to come with a Human Presence Sensor or HPS, which has been present in multiple entries. HPS Helps with Face Unlock In September, evidence surfaced revealing that the HPS could also work with face unlocking in order to strengthen the owner's computer security. A report from 9to5Google gives users a little more insight regarding another benefit of the Google sensor. Another upcoming feature for Chromebook users will help them enable the "snooping detection" option, which activates the HPS to know when someone is looking at the user's screen over their shoulder. Google will make use of the Chromebook webcam in order to track how many people are in the frame and react accordingly to the user's settings. Chrome OS to Help Ensure User Safety Everything works locally, which ensures that the users' surroundings, including their faces, aren't uploaded to Google's cloud. Once the device detects a snooper, Chrome OS takes a few more actions to ensure the safety of users. If users just want to know whenever someone is behind them, they can enable a small eye icon to appear in the status area of the display. This would alert users of their surroundings without them having to watch their back constantly. Automatic Notifications When Someone is Snooping at Users' Screen This feature can also be used to turn off notifications or even automatically dim their screen in order to prevent them from being seen. This allows users to save all of their precious trade secrets as well as detonation codes from falling into the hands of people they don't want these details to fall into. Even if users aren't necessarily a high-up government official or a super spy, being able to protect one's own data or whatever is on their screen from unwanted eyes is still quite a handy tool to have. As for when the devices that support this feature will come to store shelves, however, there isn't really a set date yet.

Make your Oculus Quest 2 fit — and sound— better with these discounted mods

The Oculus Quest 2 is an all-around solid piece of hardware, and it’s a very popular holiday gift since there are some great deals happening now. But anyone who already owns one can tell you that the company’s straps leave a lot to be desired. The cloth strap included in the box isn’t supportive, and while the $50 Elite Strap addresses that, it’s quite fragile. Mine broke within a year of normal use, and surfing Oculus’ Reddit page will show you that some people’s straps meet a similar fate. RELATED The best early Black Friday deals you can get right now A popular and crafty modification that you can make to your headset is to attach HTC’s Deluxe Audio strap (originally made for the Vive) with a set of third-party adapters to make it fit perfectly with your Oculus headset. Once it’s all set up, you should have a much more comfortable headset, and the strap’s built-in headphones are a serious upgrade over the Quest 2’s built-in speakers. I’m thinking about trying this myself. The reason why I’m writing about this now, of course, is because these accessories are cheaper for Black Friday. HTC’s Deluxe Audio strap usually costs $100, but it’s down to $69 at Amazon (this might seem like a lot, but remember, it’s both a sturdy strap and headphones in one). Pair it with this necessary $22 adapter kit, and you’ll have made a long-lasting solution for your Quest 2.

Scientists use seismic noise to image first hundred meters of Mars

NASA's InSight lander installed a seismograph on Mars, and the marsquakes it detected have helped us map the planet's interior. This data provides the big picture of Mars' internals—how big the core is, whether anything is molten, and so on. But it doesn't capture the small details, like what the ground immediately below InSight looks like. This week, researchers described how they've managed to find quiet periods on Mars that lets them image closer to the surface. The results, combined with some nearby surface features, reveal that InSight is likely above two large lava flows, separated by layers of sediment. Be very quiet Marsquakes aren't useful for sorting out local features. If their seismic waves arrive from far enough away, then their behavior is mostly influenced by the materials they spent most of their time traveling through. If the marsquake happens nearby, then things are too energetic to make out the fine details caused by local features. So, in order to look at the local geology, you need to look at the background seismic noise that's constantly being picked up by InSight. On Earth, most of the seismic noise is generated by either human activities or the oceans. But Mars lacks both of these noise sources, and its background is dominated by the wind interacting with features on Mars. But when the data was examined at times of day when winds were generally high, the noise turned out to be dominated by frequencies that were produced by the wind interacting with the lander itself. So the researchers focused on what was early evening, Mars time, when the winds tended to die down. At that point, most of the seismic noise is generated by weak winds interacting with nearby geology rather than with the lander itself. Geologists have used seismic noise to reconstruct features on Earth by comparing the horizontal and vertical components of the noise. This is a process that can be consistent with a large collection of potential structures near the surface of Mars. To constrain the list of possibilities, the researchers focused on features that showed up in the majority of potential solutions. They also looked at the rocks exposed in nearby craters to search for visible features that correlated to the things their models were suggesting might exist. What’s underneath Closest to the surface, the regolith of Mars is formed by dust and rock fragments produced by impacts. It appears to be only 1.5 meters thick, although the researchers caution that the data on the uppermost 20 meters of material is very uncertain. By three meters below the surface, there appears to be a layer of volcanic rock, formed by major eruptions in Mars' distant past. ...

Tesla (TSLA) sends ultimatum to buyers who keep delaying deliveries

Tesla has started to send an ultimatum to buyers who keep delaying their deliveries as part of a new policy change in the evolving market. Sources familiar with the matter told Electrek that Tesla has decided to send an ultimatum to buyers who have been delaying their deliveries for long periods of time. Tesla is asking them to take delivery within a certain period of time, or the company will cancel the order. This applies to people who have been delaying deliveries for six months or more. A source familiar with the matter told Electrek that it applies to a number of orders in the lows thousands in the US. So we are talking about a relatively significant number of people that Tesla is forcing to make a decision. This policy change to put more pressure on people delaying orders comes amid a shift in the EV market in the US. In many cases, buyers can simply delay orders because they can’t afford the vehicles and can’t get approved for a loan. Tesla gives their vehicles to other customers, and buyers can keep their orders, hoping they can accept delivery next time. However, in some cases, buyers have been intentionally delaying orders in the US in order to take delivery next year when they expect they will have access to a new tax credit for their purchase. Tesla potentially canceling their orders would have significant implications since the automaker greatly increased prices across its entire lineup in the US in 2021. If those buyers want to buy the vehicle next year, they would have to place a new order at the higher price. The company has started to send automated messages to those buyers who have been delaying deliveries: Hi [Buyer’s name], We are contacting you to offer you a final opportunity to take delivery of your [car on order] placed on [date of the order]. When we contacted you in [last delivery attempt], you requested that we delay canceling your order because you still planned to purchase the vehicle. However, our records indicate that you have not taken delivery. We sincerely hope you will choose to proceed with your order and join Tesla in accelerating the transition to sustainable energy, but we are unable to hold your order any longer if you don’t take action. To proceed with your delivery, sign in to your Tesla Account and select ‘I’m Ready’ to remove this hold by December 2, 2021. If your order remains on hold on December 2, 2021, or if your order is placed on hold again, your order will be automatically canceled and your order deposit fully refunded. We appreciate your understanding, and we hope that you will order a Tesla when the time is right for you. Best Regards, The Tesla Team Electrek’s Take Tesla’s order agreement stipulates that the buyer needs to take delivery within 30 days of it being available. Therefore, Tesla has been giving these buyers plenty of wiggle room. ...

Coronavirus variant fear sparks Africa travel curbs

Travellers arriving in England from several southern African countries will have to quarantine amid warnings over a new coronavirus variant. UK Health Secretary Sajid Javid said from 12:00 GMT on Friday six countries would be added to the red list, with flights being temporarily banned. One expert described the variant, known as B.1.1.529, as "the worst one we've seen so far", and there is concern it has the potential to evade immunity. No cases have been confirmed in the UK. Only 59 confirmed cases have been identified in South Africa, Hong Kong and Botswana so far. What do we know about this new variant? What are the latest changes to UK travel rules? All flights from South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Lesotho and Eswatini are being suspended. Mr Javid said that scientists were "deeply concerned" about the new variant but more needed to be learned about it. But he said the variant has a significant number of mutations, "perhaps double the number of mutations that we have seen in the Delta variant". He added: "And that would suggest that it may well be more transmissible and the current vaccines that we have may well be less effective." He said adding the six countries to the red list was about "being cautious and taking action and trying to protect. as best we can, our borders". From 12:00 on Friday non-UK and Irish residents will be banned from entering England if they have been in the six countries in the past 10 days. Any British or Irish resident arriving from the countries after 04:00 on Sunday will have to quarantine in a hotel, with those returning before that being asked to isolate at home. Those who have returned in the last 10 days are being asked to take a PCR test by the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA). The flight ban will remain in place until the hotel quarantine system is up and running. One scientist told me this was the worst variant they'd seen - look at it on paper and it's not hard to see why. It is the most heavily mutated variant so far and is now radically different to the form that emerged in Wuhan, China. That means vaccines, which were designed using the original, may not be as effective. And some of its mutations are known to increase the ability of coronaviruses to spread. But there have been many variants that looked bad on paper before, but haven't taken off. There are early signs this virus is spreading in South Africa and may already be in every province in the country. But the big questions - how much does it evade vaccines, is it more severe, does it spread faster that Delta - are unanswerable for now. ...

Samsung's New 200 MP Camera Sensor Might Go To Motorola First



Samsung announced the creation of a new, powerful camera sensor capable of 200 megapixels last September. It is slated to come to new smartphones soon, but it won't be Samsung themselves that will get the first crack. According to a renowned industry leaker, the 200 MP sensor is going to go to Motorola first, reports AndroidCentral. There is, however, absolutely no news on when the phone will release or what specific model it will be. Here is the original tweet from leaker IceUniverse: As per the original AndroidCentral report, Motorola getting to try a new Samsung camera first would be a departure from the norm. That's because Xiaomi is almost always first in line for that. But according to IceUniverse, Xiaomi wouldn't even get to release new smartphones featuring the 200 MP sensor until the latter half of next year. Samsung, on the other hand, isn't expected to launch their first 200 MP phones until 2023. Some say that the upcoming Galaxy S22 Ultra, which was featured in leaked renders recently, might come with a 200 MP sensor. For now, though, this remains unconfirmed. Should the rumor prove true, then it will be the first time that Motorola's phones will be frontrunners in mobile photography. Motorola smartphones, even their most recent ones, haven't had good cameras in the past. So far, the only notable devices from Motorola are their sub-flagship models, such as the Edge, which featured a relatively paltry 108 MP sensor, writes ScreenRant. Samsung's 200 MP Beast At A Glance As previously mentioned, Samsung finally launched their 200 MP camera sensor back in early September, first entering the South Korean market before anywhere else. pon its release, the ISOCELL HP1 is considered the most powerful mobile camera ever made. Aside from capturing full-resolution 200 MP photos, the camera is also designed to record standard 8K resolution video, which Samsung says is possible without cropping issues, according to The Verge. In an official press release by Samsung, they do a deeper dive into what the ISOCELL HP1 is capable of. It gets pretty technical there, but the highlight of the entire document is the sensor's use of the company's pixel-binning tech called ChameleonCell. ChameleonCell basically allows the sensor to adapt to low-light scenarios and back to full-resolution photo capture seamlessly, which is a great option to have in mobile photography. Just How Sharp Is 200 MP? The short answer is super sharp. Here is a video by Samsung detailing just how powerful the

Apple Self Repair: Tim Cook Says It ‘Feels Good’ to Give People Manuals, Parts for People to Work On

Apple CEO Tim Cook has spoken out about the company's recent move into "right-to-repair", and the executive's stand is pro the venture, saying that it "feels good" to give people manuals and parts. The long-time Apple CEO after Steve Jobs has said that everyone who knows that they are capable of fixing their Apple devices has a chance to do so, but is still welcome to Apple Service. Apple's Self-Repair Program: Tim Cook Says He Supports It An interview by KLTA Los Angeles reporter, Rich DeMuro, has discussed the right-to-repair and the stand of the Apple CEO regarding this in a conversation. Here, Apple's Tim Cook said that it "feels good" to be giving people the manuals, parts, and needs they require for fixing their devices on their own, as a DIYer or home professional. Cook said that people could be experts on their rights, with some having hands-on experience on tech devices, and refers to them as the "Popular Mechanics" crowd. Several people that also DIY fix their own devices are trained to do so, and this is what the Apple CEO acknowledges in the recent interview and ventures by the Cupertino giant regarding self-repair. Tim Cook: Apple Service Still Open for Fix, Tweaks As discussed in the interview, Tim Cook said that despite the new Apple self-repair program being launched by the company and coming soon, Apple's Services are still open for those that need it. The CEO still recommends that people go to AASPs for their needs and problems with their gadgets for better assistance and repair to be done. Apple: Right to Repair and MORE Apple started its support for the US government's pressure to allow people to fix their own devices without necessarily voiding warranties or requiring them to have them delivered to their service providers. The right-to-repair adherence of the company has been first this early November, and it gained the support of popular content creators that focus on fixing Apple devices. Different manuals and parts for the right-to-repair focus of Apple for its devices and company are coming by 2022, and it would bring the requirements that a person should need when opening up their devices. From the Mac down to the iPhones, the right-to-repair is here to bring a guide for all that wants to DIY or parts for those professionals already. It takes a massive stand of companies like Apple to go into right-to-repair, especially with its CEO Tim Cook which has initially shunned the idea of having the fix outside an Authorized Apple Service Provider (AASP). However, the CEO came to realize that not all that want to fix their Apple devices are DIYers, and some are engineers or licensed ones that know their ways around these devices. ...

Microsoft Failed to Fix a Zero-Day and Now Every Version of Windows Is at Risk

Every version of Windows is at risk due to a scary zero-day vulnerability after Microsoft failed to patch the flaw. The exploit is currently a proof-of-concept, but researchers believe ongoing small-scale testing and tweaking of this exploit is setting the stage for a wider-reaching attack. “During our investigation, we looked at recent malware samples and were able to identify several [bad actors] that were already attempting to leverage the exploit,” Nic Biasini, Cisco Talos’ head of outreach, told BleepingComputer. “Since the volume is low, this is likely people working with the proof of concept code or testing for future campaigns.” The vulnerability takes advantage of a Windows Installer bug (tracked as CVE-2021-41379) that Microsoft thought it patched earlier this month. The flaw gives users the ability to elevate local privileges to SYSTEM privileges, the highest user rights available on Windows. Once in place, malware creators can use those privileges to replace any executable file on the system with an MSI file to run code as an admin. In short, they can take the system over. Over the weekend, security researcher Abdelhamid Naceri, who discovered the initial flaw, published to Github a proof-of-concept exploit code that works despite Microsoft’s patch release. Even worse, Naceri believes this new version is even more dangerous because it bypasses the group policy included in the admin install of Windows. “This variant was discovered during the analysis of CVE-2021-41379 patch. the bug was not fixed correctly, however, instead of dropping the bypass. I have chosen to actually drop this variant as it is more powerful than the original one,” Naceri wrote. BleepingComputer tested Naceri’s exploit and, within “a few seconds,” used it to open a command prompt with SYSTEM permissions from an account with “standard” privileges. While you shouldn’t be too worried just yet, this vulnerability could put billions of systems at risk if it’s allowed to spread. It’s worth reiterating that this exploit gives attackers admin privileges on the latest Windows OS versions, including Windows 10 and Windows 11–we’re talking about more than 1 billion systems. This isn’t a remote exploit though, so bad actors would need physical access to your device to carry out the attack. Microsoft labeled the initial vulnerability as medium-severity, but Jaeson Schultz, a technical leader for Cisco’s Talos Security Intelligence & Research Group, stressed in a blog post that the existence of functional proof-of-concept code means the clock is ticking on Microsoft releasing a patch that actually works. As it stands, there is no fix or workaround for this flaw. ...

Google wants to use your Chromebook's camera to help fight shoulder surfing

Unlike most Android tablets, Chromebooks make for great productivity machines from the moment you open the box. That probably explains why they've been adopted by schools and office workers alike, offering a simple UI at a low cost of entry. If you've had your eyes on a Chromebook for work, you might want to hold off buying one, as future models could come with some improved security. We've known that Chromebooks with a Human Presence Sensor, or "HPS," have been in the works for a while now, with multiple entries listed in the Chromium Gerrit. In September, evidence that the HPS could work with face unlock to help strengthen your computer's security began appearing, with other uses — including presence detection — also listed. A new report from 9to5Google is giving us a little more insight into another benefit of this sensor. An upcoming flag for Chrome will let users enable "snooping detection," activating the HPS to determine whether someone is looking at your screen over your shoulder. Google would use the webcam on a Chromebook to track the number of people in the frame and react accordingly, depending on your settings. Everything's determined locally, so your surroundings — and your face — aren't uploaded to the cloud. Once a snooper (a Snoopy?) has been detected, there are a few actions Chrome OS can take. If you just want to know when someone's behind you, a small eye icon can appear in the status area of the display, alerting you to your surroundings without having to watch your back constantly. It can also turn off notifications or automatically dim your screen to prevent it from being seen, saving all of your precious trade secrets and detonation codes from falling into the wrong hands. Even if you aren't a super spy or a high-up government official, being able to protect what's on your screen from unwanted eyes would be a handy tool to have. As for when supported laptops might make it to store shelves, you might want to hold off buying a new Chromebook any time soon. Machines with this sort of tech aren't expected to launch before sometime next year.

This Tesla Model 3.5 Design Could Be A Global Top Seller

By: Steven Loveday Thanks to CGI creator Sugar Chow, who's known as sugardesign_1 on social media, we have an incredible rendering of a Tesla Model 3 wagon, or perhaps you want to call it a Shooting Brake or a crossover of sorts. The Tesla Model 3 is the best-selling EV of all time, and it's popular across the globe. In fact, it's the first electric to successfully outsell gas-powered rivals. When its larger sibling, the Model Y, was first revealed, some people said it wouldn't sell well since it was just an "inflated" Model 3. However, as CEO Elon Musk projected, the Model Y is selling like crazy. While Tesla is extremely production-constrained and wouldn't be wise to add another vehicle to its list, we bet a Model 3 wagon would sell quite well. This would be especially true in Europe, where wagons are still celebrated. However, it might surprise people by how well it could also sell in the states. Sedans and wagons have fallen out of favor in the US, but people love the Model 3 and Model S. The Polestar 2 is essentially a fastback/hatchback like the Model S. Following suit, Porsche's first fully electric car, the Taycan, is also a sedan. Arguably more interesting, it's available in a Cross Turismo configuration (wagon) that we absolutely adore at InsideEVs. As buyers in the US have been shifting away from cars and into crossovers, there's a good chance that new "blended" car configurations could catch on, especially for EVs. In fact, Porsche is already working on a new configuration that it says is a cross between a sedan and a crossover, though it has three rows. So, a minivan? It would come as no surprise if history repeated itself amid the advent of EVs, and we started to see wagon-like and minivan-like electric crossovers catching on. One could argue that EV owners tend to be practical, and they're looking for a car not only with excellent performance, but also class-leading passenger and cargo space. ...

Barbie EV Debuts in LA Auto Show, Concept Shows Fiat 500e Under the Glitters But Is It Coming?



Barbie has an electric vehicle and this is a legitimate car as it already has a prototype that debuted in the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show, focusing on a vehicle that has been given the glitz and glamour of the popular doll. No, this car is not for Ken, as it is a car that is intended for the popular doll, calling the vehicle the "Barbie Extra" that has the Fiat 500e underneath. Barbie EV Debuts in 2021 LA Autoshow: What is It? Mattel has joined the 2021 Los Angeles Autoshow and it has not brought a life-sized Hot Wheels replica of a real-world car; rather an electric vehicle that one of the most glamorous dolls in the world would drive. Yes, it is Barbie, and she brings a prototype of an electric vehicle that has her signature and style written all over it. The Barbie Extra brings a roadster in the elements and manifestation of the popular doll that focuses on a convertible that would not harm the environment despite driving it all around the city. This is because underneath it is a Fiat 500e, an electric vehicle that features a clean energy motor. The Barbie EV is a dream come true for all fans of the doll franchise, having the character's style and design all over the vehicle. Life in electric, its fantastic Barbie EV Prototype Debuts a Modded Fiat 500e The Barbie EV is a prototype, and there was no announcement by Mattel or Fiat for a joint venture regarding it, to release the vehicle for production to fit this modern world. However, it is a good indication that brands like Barbie are moving forward into adopting the clean energy campaign of the world that focuses more on electric mobility. The Fiat 500e focuses on a fully-electric motor that is capable of driving 155 miles of range and output 118 horsepower, enough for a stylish ride. Barbie, Mattel, and the Glitter World Mattel and its popular Barbie brand have been a popular toy and doll collection for decades now, with its first recipients in the 1960s having children or families now, embedding its presence on a global scale. Barbie has had a lot of vehicles to accompany her chic lifestyle throughout the years, including convertibles that are heavily slapped with pink colors or going futuristic with a hoverboard. ...

Meta, Zuckerberg Show Off New Haptic Glove That Lets Users 'Feel' Virtual Objects

Close-up of person's hand holding a cellphone displaying the logo for social media company Meta, the parent company of Facebook, Lafayette, California, October 29, 2021. Mark Zuckerberg recently showed off a haptic glove that he claims would let users "feel" virtual objects by touch, reports PCMag. The glove, which looks like it belongs in a science fiction movie, uses hundreds of tiny motors designed to deliver a simulated sensation of touch. Aside from that, it can also lock your hand in a certain position to simulate activities like holding a ball in the virtual world. Meta's official statement says that the glove's main goal is to "bring touch to the metaverse." Mark Zuckerberg subsequently uploaded a few videos of the tech in action on his social media account: Aside from letting users feel objects in the metaverse, the haptic glove is also designed as a virtual reality controller, reports The Verge. What this could mean is that instead of merely holding sticks with buttons, you can actually "hold" your game character's weapon in your hand and swing it as you would in real life. The glove is the project of a company called Reality Labs, and it's reportedly been in the works for years. The tech itself falls under a category of robotics called "soft robotics," which is a relatively new field. Meta hasn't announced further plans about releasing the gloves to both VR and AR users. However, their goal is likely to launch it alongside VR/AR headsets. How Does Meta's Haptic Glove Work? Reality Labs walked CNET through the technologies they're working on, revealing the mechanical basics of the Meta haptic glove. Their latest designs don't use motors, but rely on pushing air through so-called "microbladders" embedded in the gloves to change its rigidity at will. Air is used to move something up, down, and laterally across a user's fingers, for instance, creating the sensation of touch. Other glove designs are also working on making the texture of objects distinguishable. In other words, a wooden ball in Meta's metaverse would feel different compared to a rubber ball, etc. The only problem with this specific version of the tech is that it simply wouldn't work well on a 2D screen. Thus, it is only usable in virtual reality or augmented reality.

Apple Business Essentials Launches After Acquisition from Fleetsmith was Tweaked; But There's a Cat



Apple's Business Essentials are here to bring a subscription platform to manage a business, something that would help in the everyday operations of a service focused on the improvement of access. However, there is a massive catch here, and it would be a hindrance to the said service as it would provide walls to the feature from Fleetsmith. Apple's Business Essentials was launched earlier today, but there is a catch for its services for people to use and utilize for their ventures. First off is that it is still in its beta testing mode for the public, as it is in its early stages and focusing on debuting a new feature, testing it out for what to change or tweak in its final release. On the other hand, another catch for Apple is that the Business Essentials has a focus on companies that only use Apple and its products, something which focuses on iOS support only. And while that is a handicap for those that would use the Business Essentials, it also is a massive help, especially for those aiming to debut a service or venture in the market now. Read Also: How to Add and Remove Apple's Legacy Contact | List of Accessible Data and Access Key Apple Business Essentials: What is It? Business Essentials is a platform where one can start growing their networks and manage the operations of an entire company, despite doing it remotely. The service will focus on bringing a service for $2.99 up to $12.99 a month (subject to change in the future) that could bring a solution to the many problems a business faces today. The feature was originally debuted by Fleetsmith but was acquired by Apple in the past and made into the new Business Essentials. Apple's New Features Centered for the iOS 15 Apple has been focusing more of its latest features on services like the security for children and families with the iOS 15, aiming to bring a safe experience with the company's devices and more. However, it is also focusing its features on helping out small businesses and other ventures of the companies that use Apple's services to their advantage. The company has also improved its App Privacy features for small businesses, but one of the most massive focuses of the company is still going against the mandate for them with regards to sideloading. Despite the different sectors, businesses, and entities pushing for sideloading that focuses on the growth of their ventures, Apple is not on board. Services like the Bussiness Essentials focus of the company has the potential to help small businesses to flourish in the fast-paced and growing society of a venture-focused community. Different people are going into businesses now, and with Apple providing tools here, it aims to integrate itself with the use of its products in the different focuses of the SMBs. ...
