A Chinese engineering company Unitree Robotics has created a four-legged robot, similar to the American development of BigDog company Boston Dynamics. The robot has received the name Laikago, in honor of the dog-cosmonaut Laika, reports
The robot moves confidently on any surface, from rocky ground to grassy slopes, and has a stabilization system, which allows him to maintain balance while bumps and shocks. Laikago are simpler than BigDog. He can not move independently, controlled by the controller via wi-fi. In addition, it is not equipped with a vision system. 
"We wanted to create a four-legged robot, which will be smaller and simpler, and will be useful to ordinary people to carry things or as a companion," explains Xin Wang, founder Unitree Robotics.
The company plans to launch mass production Laikago as a research platform for scientists and other engineers. In the future it can be used for delivery.

Google Google build a future in Canada.
This was announced by the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau, reports Stroyobzor with reference to Prian.
The district will operate a cargo robots, adaptive traffic signals, will also be built modular housing. The project will take the "daughter" Alphabet company Sidewalk Labs.
The district will build on the shores of lake Ontario. For this purpose has allocated five hectares of land with the possibility to expand the area of 323 ha. 
The area you want to equip with a system of sensors that will monitor urban infrastructure – benches in parks, dumpsters, noise and pollution in residential areas. It is expected to abandon the use of private vehicles in favor of the unmanned shuttles and bicycles. For cyclists in the winter the track will be heated. Under pave routes for cargo robots.
The project will allocate $ 50 million. – it development and testing. During the year after consultation with local residents will be provided with a detailed project.

Android 19.10.2017 | 0 Announcement HomTom S9 Plus – perhaps the best edge-to-edge smartphone from China Today finally something happened that was so long awaited by many fans of cheap but very good smartphones from China. The world had a smartphone HomTom S9 Plus, which has received almost the most advanced technical equipment at a very modest price.
Among the special features – frameless screen, occupying almost all the space on the front side, dual camera, quite productive technical equipment, extremely stylish case and of course a very low price.
Smartphone HomTom S9 Plus, which just announced that he has received of 5.99-inch edge-to-edge IPS screen with a resolution of 1440 by 720 pixels (HD+) with aspect ratio 18:9, 8-core processor MediaTek MT6750T with a clock frequency of 1,5 GHz, graphics accelerator Mali-T860, MP2, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of permanent flash memory, slot for microSD memory cards up to 256 GB included, dual core (16 MP + 5 MP) and 13 MP front camera as well as a very stylish case. According to the manufacturer, both the smartphone's camera HomTom S9 Plus take photos in high resolution and with a high degree of detail even in low light. Dual main camera novelty supports 2-fold optical zoom like the iPhone 8 Plus, and portrait with background blur, and can also boast HDR mode which makes the picture more realistic. The total battery capacity of a smartphone is 4050 mAh technology to support quick charge. It will be enough for two workers to the average moderate load. The operating system HomTom S9 Plus uses Android 7.0 Nougat, which very soon will update to Android 8.0 Oreo. The best edge-to-edge smartphone from China will go on sale October 23. Buy HomTom S9 Plus residents of Russia and other countries who do not reside in the territory of China, after November 2, 2017, that is, after one of the largest Chinese online store will start to send its first customers. Anyone can apply for a new provisional order, and a choice of three available colors – black, blue and silver. Taken from

The authoritative German organization TUV Rheinland which provides independent audit services, tested the quick charge function in the new flagship smartphones 10 Mate from Huawei. Recall that they use a proprietary technology SuperCharge, allowing 30 minutes to charge the battery Mate with a capacity of 4 000 mAh, approximately 58%. Experts of TUV Rheinland have tested the smartphone in extreme conditions and gave their assessment of safety.
TUV Rheinland has tested and Mate Mate 10 10 Pro in extreme conditions, subjecting them to high and low temperatures. In addition, the company has confirmed the safety of the battery with several tests drop tested USB Type-C by connecting and disconnecting the cables more than 10 thousand times and was verified by the chargers from third-party manufacturers.
In their conclusion, the experts of TUV Rheinland said that the Mate in 10 and Mate 10 Pro technology SuperCharge is the world's first safe quick charging. As evidence of the company TUV Rheinland issued the new products from Huawei your certificate.

Early next year Google quantum computer equipped with 22-cubiculum chip, will start the computation of complex tasks which would take a classical computer a billion years. Success will mean the onset of "quantum supremacy" — a tipping point in which a quantum computer will do what previously was considered impossible, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Companies and universities worldwide are involved in the creation of quantum computers, but the leader in this race remains Google. In may, IBM introduced the quantum chip with 16 qubits, which became a sensation and was planned for introduction for quantum General purpose computers. Then came an interview with John Martinis, head of Google's quantum hardware, in which he said that Google has 22-kubicova chip.
Google quantum chip are the company's lab in Santa Barbara, where they are kept in special containers called cryostats. Compressed helium and liquid nitrogen pumped from a refrigerated tank, cooled inside the cryostat to -273,11 °C. It is necessary to maintain superconductivity. Such a complex and expensive setup means that Google and other companies are likely to sell quantum computing via the cloud for a lot of money.
Team for the development of quantum technologies at Google is headed by Hartmut Neven, who previously oversaw the most innovative projects of the company: software for facial recognition to Google Glass. "On this computer, no transistors, says Neven. — This is a different type — a real native of the multiverse."
Power standard and a quantum computer so different that they can hardly be compared. So, having the 300-bit classic chip, you can make a calculator or a simple sensor for smart homes. Having a 300-Kubany quantum chip, it is possible to obtain a device with computing power equal to the number that is written in the form of twos with 90 zeros. This number is greater than the number of atoms in the Universe.
At the moment, the team of Nevena in southern California is preparing to launch a 49-cubatobaco chip, which they hope will open a new frontier technologies, after which the computers will use the unthinkable complex natural laws and quit trying to translate the physical world in the conventional binary system.
Intel has introduced a new superconducting chip, which will allow to create a quantum computer. The research team of the company in the United States found a method of production of 17-bit chips with a special architecture that allows them to operate at higher temperatures and reduces interference during data transmission.
