The web has a video with new wireless Apple headphones using Siri. After placing on the shelves of the HomePod column there were rumors that a couple of them will release the appropriate devices. Analysts believe that the company will not create a model as a Beats receiver, but instead will develop its own unique design.
Designers of the German edition of CURVED labs presented their version of the design for Apple's headphones. The concept is fairly typical, but some of the design elements are visibly associated with the column. In particular, the outer side of the headphones can be made of a material similar to the HomePod coating.
Another common element was the touch panel with a display of the Siri indicator and other control points. A compact docking station may be required to charge the wireless periphery. The latter is likely to be easily attached to both the horizontal surface, and on the wall or cabinet. Developers of the concept believe that the headphones from Apple will be supplied in white and black color by analogy with the column HomePod.

The first ever cruise ferry Viking Grase with a rotary sail was launched in Finland, news agencies reported.
For its movement, the ferry will use only environmentally friendly energy. The work of the rotary sail is based on the Mangus effect: a physical phenomenon that occurs when a flow of a fluid or a gas flows around a rotating body. The resulting driving force imparts impulse to the vessel. The rotor height is 24 meters, the diameter is 4 meters.
The cruise ferry has already made the first flight from the Finnish city of Turku to Stockholm.

A new program, working with ultra-precise and recurrent neural networks, is able to turn blurry images into unusual short videos, each of which can include up to 10 frames.
A unique idea to restore some movement from its artifacts on a blurred image, and turn it into a full-fledged short video arose from specialists at the Indian Institute of Technology. Under the guidance of AN Rajagopalan, scientists developed a special algorithm based on convolutional neural networks (used to automatically recognize images) and recurrent neural networks.
The essence of the technique is as follows: the model is trained on many rolls, broken into frames, after which it chooses an episode, the artifact on which most corresponds to that in the training sample. The decoder then generates the fragment artifacts in the training sample into action on the video. As a result, the neural network creates a video from a blurry photo, consisting of 10 frames.
Such an algorithm in the future can be used to improve recovered blurry pictures and video.

Subbrand Nubia, owned by ZTE, is known for its phones, but he decided to add a new product to his portfolio.
In addition to the release of the Nubia Z18 Mini, released the other day, it also released a "smart" door lock - Nubia Smart Door Lock.
The lock is made of a zinc alloy with a galvanic surface. It supports five different unlock modes. You can use a fingerprint scanner, enter a numeric password, use a card, unlock it using your phone or use a key.
The lock has a special cover that opens upwards so that you can use the keyboard and fingerprint scanner. When the lid is closed, it simply looks like a giant door lock, except for the screen.
Nubia says that the door lock has a chip of encryption at the banking level and recognition of military-grade fingerprints.
The cost of Nubia Smart Door Lock is about $ 255. While there is no information about when it will be available for purchase.

One of the manufacturers of mobile devices recently became the owner of the award called "Product of the Year". The prize was awarded within the framework of the category "Smartphone for shooting photos and premium video". Innovation Huawei P20 Pro, with a triple camera is considered the best smartphone in this category.
Experts who tested Huawei P20 Pro, said that after the first frame it became clear that the flagship outperforms such devices as Apple iPhone X, Google Pixel 2 XL, Samsung Galaxy S9. This estimate only applies to the quality of the survey. Experts drew attention to the possibility of using a 5-fold hybrid zoom without losing quality.
In addition, for Huawei P20 Pro is characterized by the functioning of artificial AI AI, which can automatically adjust the camera so that the photos are more impressive. A "smart" device can analyze objects visible by the camera, and then set parameters for better photo quality.
Experts say that the analogue of the Huawei P20 Pro device does not currently exist, as it is capable of making gorgeous photos even with a strong lack of light.
