Scientists from the Royal Melbourne University of Technology, in Australia, promise to speed up the Internet at least 100 times with the help of a swirling light effect. The results of the study, during which the possibilities of fiber-optic networks were studied.
It is reported by Nature Communications.
Scientists said that in the course of the study, they were able to solve the problem of speed limits in fiber optic networks. Moreover, they have already created a special nanophotonic chip that will function in devices of the new generation. As the experts explained, broadband fiber-optic communication is used to transmit information by transferring light, but since the data is processed on one and encoded on the other end, the speed is significantly limited.
In the course of using a nanophotonic chip, the principle of action of which is based on a flying “screw” swirling light, it was possible to process more information. Scientists assure that in the next 2-3 years they will be able to increase the speed in fiber-optic networks by about 100 times. Experts believe that their development will be used to create quantum models of computers and quantum Internet.

The American company North presented its "smart" glasses Focals, which can be controlled using a special joystick in the form of a ring.
It is reported by a specialized blog about technology Engadget.
The image in the glasses is formed using a special mini-projector, which is embedded inside the handle. The projected image is reflected from the glass in the iris of the human eye, creating a hologram effect
Focals points can, in particular, show incoming messages, time, navigation, and weather. You can control them with the joystick ring, which will be bundled.
In the North company note that points are intended for daily use.
One pair of glasses, complete with a joystick ring, will cost about $ 1,000.

In the universe there are large concentrations of galaxies, which consist of thousands of analogues of the Milky Way. They were formed after the Big Bang.
The researchers questioned the previously existing cosmological theory, they put their thoughts in a scientific article that was published in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics. Specialists from the National Astrophysical Institute in Bologna (Italy) reported that for the first time they were able to detect such a large cluster, which is located at a considerable distance from our planet.
Recall that such objects that were previously known to mankind are located in the modern part of the Universe, in which they have enough time to build up their mass and evolve. It is established that the first such galaxies arose as a result of the gravitational collapse of huge clouds of gas, which were formed as a result of a cluster of minor irregularities in the distribution of matter.
Italian scientists have discovered yet another confirmation that the current understanding of the evolution of the early Universe does not correspond to reality, observing approximately ten thousand ancient galaxies comparable in size to the Milky Way and existed in the first two billion years after the Big Bang.
The detected galaxies are concentrated in a compact segment of the Sextant constellation. By calculating the distances and analyzing the manner of their movement, astrophysicists realized that they all merged into a giant cluster, which scientists temporarily called “Hyperion”.
It is established that the total mass of such clusters is approximately 270 trillion solar masses, which is comparable to the largest giant clusters of galaxies located near the Earth. At the same time, despite the similar mass and size, "Hyperion" is significantly different in its appearance from modern clusters. As a result, scientists have found the largest and heaviest object of the universe.

However, while its use is associated with some inconveniences. For this purpose, special electrodes stimulating the olfactory nerve are used.
Scientists have developed a device that allows you to transmit virtual odors. A current was applied through the electrodes, which had a different frequency and intensity. The participants in the experiment could really feel the smell of pathetic meat, wood and fruit.
Now scientists have set themselves the task of creating a device that can transmit virtual smells to people without giving up inconvenience. It may be useful to paralyzed people. With the help of this device they will be able to smell smells that are inaccessible to them in reality, and they cannot even distinguish some of them.
Some are joking about this. Application can be found in catering. For example, eat ordinary boiled potatoes, and the smell convinces that it is roasted meat. In addition, it will be an additional stimulation for the secretion of gastric juice, which, in principle, is positive. The stomach somehow does not react to the usual potato.

It has a touch screen and modular elements.
The craftsmen from the Iameco company (that is, “I Am Eco”) came to the conclusion that there was a lot of plastic waste left behind the laptops, so they collected a wooden laptop.
First, it is strong. The company claims that the iameco D4R laptop is three times more durable than other PCs, that is, its service life is almost ten years. And it can help reduce the amount of waste from such electronics.
Of course, many will say that the world of technology is developing and changing very quickly, so not every computer can be useful for 10 years. However, iameco laptops are made up of modules, that is, you can always replace individual components that have failed or are simply outdated by new, more powerful ones, the company assures.
Another advantage - wooden laptops require significantly less energy.
The materials used to assemble traditional laptops, replaced by maple and beech. At the same time, the manufacturing process requires 75% less water. Up to 70% of the components of each computer company are recyclable.
Iameco D4R has a touch screen, which received an environmental certificate from Eco-Flow. The system bus clock speed is 800 MHz / 1333 MHz, which allows the use of Intel i3, Intel i5 and Intel i7 processors. In addition, Green DDR memory of 30 nm is used, with modest power requirements and high performance.
In addition to the D4R, you can find keyboards and computer mice on the company's website, which are also made of wood.
