Fitbit Versa smart-hours will show the activity and data of the vital activity of the human body. The device has a touch screen, Wi-FI and NFC.
"Smart" Versa watches will please the consumer with a color display, a wireless option for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, as well as an NFC module. The device runs on Android and Windows 10 platforms. The set of sensors is a three-axis gyroscope and a similar accelerometer, altimeter, heart rate sensor and a lighting device. Embedded in the device clock will help correctly apply the location information from your mobile phone.
The novelty will be pleased with a large set of programs for training. Due to the hermetic design, Versa can easily withstand immersion underwater to a depth of 50 meters, this allows you to gather the necessary information during the voyage. Also, smart hours can track the quality and duration of sleep. Their price will be 200-230 dollars.

Another large-scale update is awaiting Windows 10. The expected dates are planned for April of this year.
The corporation has not yet submitted the name of the update. Also, information about the exact date of its release is not announced. It is reported that the changes should touch not only the internal operation of the operating system, (meaning the emergence of a simple data exchange system for wireless communication between nearby computers), but also the interface (we are talking about the "Chronicle" replacing the screen of recently opened programs, and also new design).

Physicists have invented a new way to obtain temperature indices in nanomaterials. It is based on the use of a thermometer that spectroscopizes the energy loss of electrons.
Physicists from the United States have discovered a way to measure temperatures up to 1,300 degrees Celsius on one nanometer of matter using electron energy spectroscopy. Now it is possible to fix the temperature of the positive and negative energy region - that is, it is possible both for the lost and for the energy received by the material. Previously, information on the temperature of the nanomaterial could be obtained only after heating it and analyzing the energy loss spectrum.
The scientists came to the conclusion that for the analysis of temperature spectra only methods from statistical physics, without the use of calibration, or linear measurement of the presented parameters of the investigated spectrum, can be required. The new method provides physicists with greater opportunities in measuring the temperature of nanomaterials than the method of local temperature measurements with heating.

Technobloger from the YouTube channel JerryRigEverything Zack Nilsson, after checking the Galaxy S9 for strength, decided to find out how the replaceable diaphragm works in the main camera. Recall that Samsung was the first to implement a smart adjustable aperture system. In the case of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, the user can switch between f / 1.5 for shooting in low light conditions and f / 2.4 for daylight.
To get to the camera, Zak had to almost completely disassemble the smartphone. By the way, Galaxy S9 Plus received 4 points out of 10 on the scale of maintainability from iFixit. During the disassembly, the blogger noted a metal plate inside the smartphone enclosure, providing greater rigidity, the presence of a passive cooling system and a water hit indicator located near the SIM card slot.
Reaching the main camera module, Zak demonstrated the operation of the optical image stabilization system. He also found that Samsung has provided a small mechanical lever responsible for opening and closing the diaphragm.

Based in China, Xiaomi released the game Jiami Tu, which should become an analogue of the already existing CryptoKitties. Instead of "crypto" in the new application, users will be shown "cryptograms".
The Xiaomi project, which is also called CryptoBunnies, will offer gamers the opportunity to expand their trading with "cryptoglosses". It is specified that in the application animals will be endowed with different characteristics, and even the characters will be able to boast of a diverse design. However, to play in Jiami Tu will be able to exclusively those users who have an account Xiaomi. It is known that those who wish can buy and sell "rabbits", but it is not specified which currency can be used for this.
It is expected that the answers to the questions of interest to the representatives of the Chinese brand will be announced in the coming days.
Earlier, as the public was informed by "Topical news", Xiaomi company demonstrated to the public a construction dumper with mechanical control.
