Google, in conjunction with the company Levi Strauss & Co, has announced the release of its smart denim jacket. This jacket has the classic design of Levi's Commuter model and equipped with touch panels, and a small device pinned to the sleeve, allows to manage your smartphone.
Model has a classic design dark blue jacket Commuter and lets you control the smartphone by simply touching it to the sleeve into which is inserted a small touch portion made of smart fabric Jacquard. Touch sleeve understands several types of touch: slide finger up and down and double tapping. To configure the functionality of each of these movements can be using the app together with which works jacket: for example, traffic can be configured to toggle music or navigation.
Note that the jacket will be available in three stores in the U.S. on Wednesday, September 27.

An international team of scientists explained how you can improve the performance of batteries, changing the ratio of components of the light-absorbing layer perovskite solar cells. The results of the work of scientists from Moscow state University. M. V. Lomonosov Kurchatov center of synchrotron radiation and the Federal Polytechnic school of Lausanne (Switzerland) published in the journal of Physical Chemistry C.
Organic-inorganic perovskites is a new class of photoactive, that is, reacting to light, materials. They can be used to create perovskite solar cells.
In the previous study, the authors found that filamentous hybrid perovskites are of the form because of the structure of the intermediate compounds formed during the crystallization of perovskite. Scientists have found a whole group of these compounds, all of them are crystallomancy. This crystalline compound, in which structure there are solvent molecules of initial components. Dissolved components dropping out of solution, form a film on which crystal growth of the perovskite.
Scientists have identified and described three intermediate compounds, which are kristallografii one of the two solvents most often used when creating perovskite solar cells. For two compounds, scientists first established crystalline structure.

"We have found that a key determinant of the functional properties of the perovskite layer is the formation of intermediate compounds, since the crystallites of the perovskite will inherit the shape of the intermediate compounds. This, in turn, affects the film morphology, and solar cell efficiency", — said the head of research Alexey Tarasov, candidate of chemical Sciences, head of laboratory of new materials for solar energy Department of materials science of MSU named after M. V. Lomonosov.

Company Sirin Labs, released last year tamper-proof mobile device worth $14,000, has announced the world's first blockchain-based smartphone. The blockchain is a distributed database in which all information is stored on the computers of each of the members of the network. The device is called Finney in honor of the well-known cryptographer and pioneer of bitcoin, Hal Finney. In Sirin Labs claim that it is the only ready to store cryptocurrency smartphone in the world.
Sirin Labs Finney
In addition to smartphones Sirin Labs as part of its Finney company plans to release a candy bar. All these devices will work in an independent blockchain-based network technology Tangle from IOTA. The network will work without a centralized backbone networks or mining centers, are capable of process the transaction using the token SRN as the default currency. The smartphone will be available for purchase only through SRN and work on the operating system, Sirin, designed to support applications such as the crypto-currency wallets and services secure exchange.
On the official website Sirin Labs indicate the following characteristics of the smartphone Finney:
5.2-inch QHD display;
8 GB of RAM;
the drive to 256 GB;
16-megapixel main camera;
12-megapixel wide-angle camera;
Wi-Fi 802.11 ac;
Bluetooth 5.0.
The estimated cost of the smartphone is $999.

At the moment the message in a microblog limited to 140 characters
Guide microblogging service Twitter has announced plans to double the number of characters in the message.
This was reported in the Twitter blog.
At the moment the message in a microblog limited to 140 characters. Now the club is going to experience an increase in the limit to 280 characters.
It is noted that the first such opportunity will receive only a small portion of users.
If testing is successful, every user can use this feature.
Earlier it was reported that the founder of Telegram, Pavel Durov said that he is ready to continue to keep the secret of correspondence of the users of the messenger, even if for this he will have to break the law.
We will remind, the head of Roskomnadzor Alexander Zharov warned personally Pavel Durov, Telegram administration and its users about blocking messenger, if the company refuses to comply with Russian legislation.

Cisco has closed the acquisition of a software for Hyper-converged environments Springpath for $ 320 million.
Under the agreement, Springpath joined the division of computing products Cisco (Computing Systems Product Group) under the leadership of Liz Centoni (Liz Centony). The co-founders of Springpath Mallik Mahalingam (Mallik Mahalingam) and Adapinar Krishna (Krishna Yadappanavar) moved to Cisco.
Springpath offers a distributed file system for Hyper-converged systems, including server hardware and storage systems. Developed by the technology called HX Springpath Data Platform she used in Cisco UCS servers to create systems HyperFlex deployed in more than 1800 companies around the world. The number of clients that work with Cisco UCS servers, more than 60 thousand, writes CRN, citing a statement from Cisco.
According to Liz, Cantoni, Springpath is a strategic asset in the portfolio of solutions for data centers Cisco in terms of how the Corporation focuses on providing customers with a software-oriented solutions.
