The company Xiaomi has released a new washer-dryer, which has developed a brand Yunmi.
The device has a fairly long name Xiaomi Yunmi Internet washing and drying machine. The machine not only washes, but also dries the laundry, and it does it very quickly. According to the manufacturer, things completely dry out in just 45 minutes, and they are not crumpled and not deformed.
Washer has received energy-efficient American engine, which allows spinning with a frequency of 1400 revolutions per minute. A smarter machine makes artificial intelligence system VioBrain. The user has 16 washing modes available, and almost any thing can be erased by the device without fear of spoiling it.
A washing machine allows you to wash up to 10 kg of laundry at a time, and also dry 6 kg of washed clothes. It is equipped with the latest hot air condensation system, and the laundry is dried with constant heating with the drum turning. The shutdown is done automatically when the laundry is completely dry.
Naturally, you can control the washing machine from mobile devices and remotely through the application. The cost of Xiaomi Yunmi Internet washing and drying machine is $ 490.

The humanoid received the name of Mindar, and created it in the image of the Japanese goddess Kannon - intercession charity.
The Japanese company A-Lab Co. created the first "robot god" to popularize the teachings of the Buddha. The AI-based mechanism will read sermons at the Kodai-ji Temple, which is located in Kyoto.
Skip after 11
Mindaru will begin his duties on March 8, but he has already delivered one sermon on the Sutra of the Heart. The teachings of the robot suggest "the way to overcome all fears and the destruction of misconceptions, as well as the realization of perfect nirvana."

Every year, MIT Technology Review magazine publishes the TOP-10 major breakthroughs of the year. But this year the magazine is to offer a compilation to billionaire and philanthropist Bill Gates.
Personalized "vaccines" for cancer, innovative nuclear reactors and artificial meat - in the coming months, the world will see radical changes, according to Microsoft co-founder, according to Hi-Tech +.
Clever robots
Modern industrial robots are still inferior in dexterity to humans. They lack the skill and flexibility. Smart manipulators cannot, like a man, look at an object and understand how best to deal with it.
However, the devices are gradually “getting smarter” - they can already learn from their own mistakes and improve the skills of “grabbing”.
The leaders in this industry are the OpenAI laboratory, which last year introduced the roboruku Dactyl. Successes have also been achieved by robotics and engineers from Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Michigan and the University of California at Berkeley.
Gates believes that robotic manipulators will be widely adopted in 3-5 years.
By this time, they will be able to assemble gadgets in factories, load plates into the dishwasher, and help older people in everyday life.
New era of nuclear energy
Nuclear systems of the fourth generation, miniature modular nuclear power plants, thermonuclear reactors - in the near future, major changes are expected in the field of nuclear energy.
Manufacturers of new types of equipment are already cooperating with large energy companies, and in the 2020s there will be more such projects. Two such examples are Canadian Terrestrial Energy and American TerraPower.
The NuScale startup develops reduced reactor models that will reduce costs and at the same time reduce risks.
Thermonuclear fusion systems are unlikely to appear before 2030, but some companies will be able to make progress. Bill Gates makes a special bet on General Fusion and Commonwealth Fusion Systems, in which he had previously invested.
Forecast of preterm labor
Every year, 15 million children are born ahead of time, and prematurity is considered the main cause of death at an early age. Within five years, Gates is sure, patients will be able to undergo a blood test and determine the risk of premature birth.
Bioengineers from Stanford University offer to examine DNA and RNA particles in the blood of women to determine the likelihood of a premature baby.
Such a study could be carried out before, but before that it was necessary to perform a biopsy or amniocentesis.
Smart tablet-shaped probe
A miniature pill-shaped device makes detailed pictures of the intestines without anesthesia and the introduction of an endoscope. The procedure is already carried out by adults, and in 2019 children will be able to undergo it. The technology will reveal a little-known disease - enteric dysfunction.
The condition is characterized by intestinal inflammation, as a result, nutrients are poorly absorbed, and health deteriorates. In children, the developmental process is usually impaired and they lag behind their peers.
Earlier, Gates had already spoken about this problem - he noted that special probiotic preparations would help fight it.
Most often, the inhabitants of poor countries face the disease, but no one knows what provokes it.
Probiotics do help to improve the condition, but it is not always possible to diagnose dysfunction in time. A probe in the form of a tablet on a thin thread will help identify the problem at an early stage and take action as soon as possible.
In the US, they are already developing such smart pills equipped with miniature microscopes. They can not only examine the intestines, but also take biopsy samples.
Personalized Cancer Vaccines
Scientists are developing a technique that will allow the body to start the process of destroying cancer cells.
To do this, it is necessary to determine which mutations are characteristic for each type of tumor. After that, a “vaccine” is introduced into the body, which activates the immune system and forces it to fight cancer.
Healthy cells are not affected, and this distinguishes the procedure from traditional chemotherapy.
Research in this field has been conducted for more than 11 years, and many drugs are already being tested in humans. Developments in this area are being led by the German startup BioNTech in collaboration with the biotech corporation Genentech.
560 patients plan to take part in the trials, and the “vaccine” will be used to combat 10 types of tumors.
Artificial meat cutlets
Breeding livestock has a catastrophic effect on forests, ponds and levels of pollution. Meat production requires enormous resources, but gradually it is replaced by vegetable analogues that are not inferior to the original in taste and texture.
Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods startups are already selling their products in stores and restaurants. And by 2020, meat grown in the laboratory will go on sale. By this time, the first substitute promise to promise researchers from the Maastricht University.
However, analysts have recently calculated that in the production of meat from a test tube, only about

Not only folding smartphones and various electronic gadgets were presented at the Mobile World Congress 2019 (MWC) consumer electronics exhibition in Barcelona - the Chinese surprised the public with their incredibly clever robot with many impressive features.
The Chinese company INNFOS introduced the XR-1 robot, which has very flexible hands and smooth movements, which allows it to copy many human gestures, water the plants, take a lot of different things in hand and even dance, reports Naked Science.
Its movements occur with the help of three strong wheels installed instead of legs.
He can dance, thread a needle, carefully pour the drink into a glass and hold raw eggs without breaking it.
According to a published press release, the XR-1 can perform all of the above due to its unique actuating mechanisms.
If humankind intends to build a future in which humanoid robots become an integral part of everyday life, developers will need drives that provide accurate movement, can withstand shocks and comply with safety rules.
INNFOS claims that their independently developed Smart Compliant Actuator (SCA) system meets all of these standards.
In order for such intelligent service robots to be widely used in enterprises, healthcare institutions, homes, and so on, it is necessary to ensure safe and intelligent human-machine interaction.
So, service robots must include the appropriate controls to be resistant to shocks, while maintaining functionality and high accuracy.
SCA includes a basic servo drive, a high-precision encoder, a powerful brushless motor, and a lightweight gearbox, which became the basis for the intelligent XR-1 service robot.
The most important characteristic of SCA is its built-in compatible connections, which can provide both high-precision and dynamic movements, while maintaining a high level of security.
It is not yet known whether SCA will be a “new trend of robotic technologies in the future,” as INNFOS says in a press release, but now the XR-1 is able to perform some of the smoothest and most realistic movements we have ever seen. the robot.
