TwentySeventeen Light Mechanical Wristwatch is a fully mechanical watch that does not have batteries.
The device, which introduced the company Xiaomi, uses the kinetic energy, which is produced by wearing the watch on the wrist, writes Sotsportal, referring to politeka.
“Now you can safely forget about constantly recharging or replacing batteries, since all that is needed for this watch is your hand,” the publication reports.
TwentySeventeen Light Mechanical Wristwatch costs $ 72.

The modified device is also equipped with an elastic solar panel that is capable of autonomously generating energy.
The effectiveness of the development of the researchers tested in laboratory animals and in humans. The new sensor patients will use to monitor heart rate.
Scientists have improved the sensor by creating for it a new power source based on an organic photovoltaic plate on a polymer substrate. Experts said that with the help of an innovative sensor, you can not only monitor your heart rate, but also change it. This function became possible after an organic electrochemical transistor was attached to the plate.
Recently it became known that scientists managed to create a microchip that will help determine the cause of infertility. The microscopic sensor is attached to the underwear and captures the change in temperature and acidity of the environment.

Traditional animal husbandry in the near future will not be able to cope with the needs of the rapidly growing population of the Earth. To help him come the "meat from the tube."
FACT. The growing number of vegetarians, as well as people concerned about the "health" of the planet, has a great influence on the development of the sphere of artificial food. Several startups are working to reduce the cost of artificial meat and make it accessible to the consumer. According to forecasts, by 2020, synthesized food can enter the diet of millions of people.
HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN? Artificial meat is grown in laboratories. The original cells are taken from animals, but this procedure is carried out only once. “Test tube meat” is grown in the form of minced meat, but in the future it is planned to create a full-fledged muscle tissue. Today, about 10 companies, including three Israeli, are engaged in the production of synthesized meat in bioreactors.
PRICE. Five years ago, the cost of artificial meat was too high: 1 kilogram cost 10 thousand dollars. Now, thanks to Israeli technology, the price has dropped significantly and a kilogram of meat costs producers $ 800. According to forecasts by Professor Yaakov Nakhmias from the meat-growing company Future Meat Technologies, by 2020 it will be possible to reduce the price of products to 5-10 dollars per kilogram.
PROSPECTS. As it became known, the largest American supplier of meat, which provides raw materials for McDonald’s and BurgerKing, has already invested several million dollars in the development of an Israeli startup. This is not surprising, because artificial meat will significantly reduce the cost of raw materials. The Chinese also invested in the company, who are forced to buy large quantities of meat every year.
One of the main advantages of the Israeli company is the taste of the products they produce: synthesized meat has a natural taste and aroma.
HOW WILL IT WORK? If the startup manages to reduce the cost of production, then the cultivation of meat will occur as follows. The company will supply equipment for growing tissue, animal cells and essential nutrients to farmers. Farmers will be engaged in growing fabrics, which will take about two weeks. After that, the fabrics will be sent to factories, where they will be turned into meat.
WHAT ARE THE NATURAL MEAT? Despite the prospects of this trend, experts note that traditional livestock as an industry will not disappear. There will be a high demand for natural products on the planet, but the rapid growth of population and consumption requires new solutions from humanity.
Test-tube meat will appear on the shelves of supermarkets very soon. However, the researchers are ready to go even further by creating mini-devices that will allow growing meat at home.

Artificial intelligence will be able to predict which book will become a bestseller on Amazon just 15 days after its publication. The work of scientists is published on
The development of a neural network analyzing the behavior of readers on the Goodreads platform was carried out by scientists from Northwestern University, engineers from the Microsoft research unit in India and the Indian Institute of Technology in Haragpur.
The developers analyzed the collective behavior of users of the reader platform Goodreads, and then studied the features of books that have become bestsellers. It turned out that the ratings and forecasts of experts almost do not predict unexpected hits of sales - only some obvious bestsellers.
After collecting data on bestsellers, the neural network was able to predict future hits by 88.72% - this is more by 16.4% than traditional methods.
