That little computer you carry around in your pocket is already your camera, navigation device, instant messaging machine, ride-hailing tool and phone. But it’s very possible that, in the not-so-distant future, what we now refer to as “smartphones” will actually seem pretty dumb and paper-weighty.
As technology evolves, that mini-computer you are already way too obsessed with is bound to get even more useful. Here are three features that could be in the cell phones of tomorrow. Continue reading
Comprehensive Review On Bluetooth 4.0 OLED Smart Band
Hello, everybody, I’m gonna introduce a new kind of smart band: Waterproof Bluetooth 4.0 OLED Smart Band. It has such multi-functions as music play control, phone call and message notification, pedometer, fitness tracker, sleep monitor, etc. It supports iOS7.0 and above, Android 4.3 and above, that is to say, if you have smart phone, you could use it.
Remote Control Demonstration
This wrist band only have one button. Let’s start, short press the button to turn on the display. Next, if short press, it will show your steps you walked, the calories you burned, the distance you finished. If long press, go to the main interface which has four squares, in sequence, Music Play Control, Remote Shutter, Search Phone, and Product Serial NO. For example, Music Play Control, open the music player in your phone, if long press, start, long press again, pause, if short press, skip, then long press, play next music, that’s awesome!
Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet are one of the few people in the world with working jetpacks— and they have taken flying them to a fucking art form.
Rossy, a forerunner in the field of propelled-human-flight, created a custom jetpack that comes closest to what, at one point or another, we have all dreamed of soaring the skies in. The jetpack can maintain flight for up to 13 minutes at speeds between 180 to 300 km/hr.
Rossy and Reffet just released a sweat-inducing video where we can see them perform Top Gun-like maneuvers over the Dubai desert and its famous Palm Islands. At one point their wings pass so close together it is almost hard to watch. Let’s face it, this is probably the closest you will get to ever flying a jetpack of your own, but take this word of warning—after you watch this video, you might just need a few minutes to catch your breath.
With the Apple watch tanking in sales, rumors have surfaced claiming that a second Apple Watch is on the way. While Apple has yet to confirm these rumors, it’s time to take a look at the scuttlebutt and figure out what’s what.
The most surprising of these rumors, and several sources are reporting this, is that Samsung and LG will be working with Apple over the creation of this wearable. Although the two companies haven’t announced their involvement with Apple, it’s being theorized that they may be helping the company with making thinner OLED displays. Continue reading
If you always wanted a robot butler to greet guests, amuse kids or be a live-action version of Cortana, you’re way too late. The Pepper robot that does all that sold out exactly one minute after it went on sale in Japan on Saturday, according to manufacturer SoftBank Robotics. The company built a modest 1,000 units for its Japanese consumer launch, selling it for $1,600 with a monthly $200 fee. The 4-foot robot is not designed to fetch you drinks or do other manual work, but rather to listen, read your emotions, then respond appropriately. It can also sing, dance and tell (corny robot) jokes.
SoftBank didn’t say who purchased the robot, but its earlier statement that “we think there’s value in a robot that can understand human feeling” was obviously accurate. The company said that it envisioned Pepper working as a store greeter, helper for the elderly or as a school learning assistant. It has also peddled coffee in a Nescafé store. It remains to be seen if demand will stay strong, but the company will open up orders again in Japan in July, and plans to bring it to Europe and the US sometime next year.
The first test is a basic splash test followed by a five minute simulated shower complete with shampoo and soap, at the end of which the Apple Watch comes out noticeably unscathed and completely responsive to FoneFox‘s inputs on both its touch interface and digital crown. It should be pointed out that all of FoneFox‘s tests were completed with a 38mm Apple Watch Sport. Although it’s hard to tell how different models of the Watch will size up to similar testing, it’s clear after today’s tests that most models in the Sport range should see similar results as FoneFox‘s.
Qi Wireless Charging with a wireless energy transfer of up to 5 watt.
Qi (the Chinese word for “energy flow“, pronounced like the “chee“ in “cheese“) is the universal standard for wireless charging of battery opererated devices like cell phones, iPods, MP3 players and cameras.
The wireless power transfer occurs through electromagnetic induction. With inductive charging the required power reaches the device not through a traditional cable but rather wirelessly through the use of electromagnetic fields. The principle is very simple: the Qi Sender (Charging Station) transfers the required energy to the Qi receiver (the mobile phone).
What is the point of wireless charging?
The biggest advantage of Qi Wireless Charging technology is that cell phones and chargers from different manufactures are compatible. The only requirement is that both parts – the sender and the receiver – fulfil the Qi specifications.
Therefore, every Qi wireless charger is compatible with every Qi charging transmitter, regardless of the manufacturer or make of the device. Numerous cell phones, including from market leaders like Nokia, Samsung, Sony, LG, Motorola and HTC,already comply with the Qi standard and can therefore be charged by any Qi Charging . The number of enabled devices is constantly growing as Qi wireless charging technology is integrated by an ever-expanding list of manufacturers. This allows you to charge your various battery operated electronic devices with just a charge station.
It seems like we’ve been waiting an age for wireless charging to take off – but with the Samsung Galaxy S6 including this futuristic technology, its mass-adoption finally looks imminent.
It’s helpful that there’s a widely adopted industry standard when it comes to wireless charging called ‘Qi’. This means that any Qi charger will work with any Qi phone or tablet.
It’s important to remember that your mobile device must include the ability to charge wirelessly as well – there’s no point in putting your iPhone or HTC One M8 on these and expecting them to charge – they won’t. Check the instruction booklet or search online to find out if your device includes wireless charging.
Simple, efficient and safe, Qi charges or powers an array of devices, from smartphones to cordless kitchen appliances. Qi combines induction and resonance technologies to deliver a superior standard.
