Samsung has patented a smartphone case with human ears. The purpose of such an invention is not yet known, reports the portal LetsGoDigital.
The text attached to the patent does not disclose the details of the invention. However, judging by its general shape and the hole in each ear, it will evenly distribute the sound from the stereo speakers of the smartphone. The advantage of this accessory is that it allows you to widely distribute sound. The case looks like a gamepad. In addition, such ears are convenient to hold when watching a horizontal video. Perhaps the cover is intended for children.

The American corporation Facebook introduced a new technology, thanks to which you can change key facial features so that face recognition systems can not recognize a person.
This was reported by Kommersant, reports BusinessCensor.
This technology can change people's faces in real time, unlike other similar programs that change appearance after recording or photographing. Facebook has no plans to use the technology in its products.
Facebook has been repeatedly accused of violating privacy policies in connection with face recognition technology. In 2015, Facebook was sued for identifying friends in published photos without demand. In August 2019, Facebook lost another appeal in this case, which could cost it billions in losses. In September 2019, the company went to meet users and announced that now each user will be able to customize face recognition technology on published photos. Source:

Unusual solution for an unusual smartphone
The battery on smartphones is an element with which great manipulations and improvements are still possible. For example, accelerating the charging process. Only in the spring, Xiaomi introduced the ultra-fast charging technology with a capacity of 100 W, which allows you to charge a 4000 mAh battery in just 17 minutes, and now it seems to be preparing another surprise.

According to insider information, the company will install dual batteries in their smartphones. This is a battery consisting of two halves. It is this design that will allow for ultra-fast charging, according to VoiceUA.
It is worth noting that Oppo has already successfully used this method. For example, the following phones received a dual battery: Reno Ace, as well as Find X. The first smartphone supports fast charging up to 50 watts, and the second - up to 65 watts.
Currently, it is difficult to imagine what kind of charging the following Xiaomi smartphones will receive, but there is reason to believe that the flagship models can support up to 100 watts. Currently, record performance models have Mi Charge Turbo with support for 40 watts.
By the way, did you know that the most popular Xiaomi products on Aliexpress are: a 19-in-1 electric screwdriver for convenient work with small parts, a magnetic rug for that screwdriver, an automatic soap dispenser with a foaming agent, and Xiaomi smart home control center.
It was previously reported that Xiaomi has released a smart retro-style LED lamp. The Yeelight smart LED incandescent lamp is equipped with a highly efficient incandescent microcircuit, and the luminous efficiency can reach 1171 m / W, which is higher in brightness and more energy-saving than that of traditional LED lamps. There is support for Apple HomeKit and Mijia, voice remote control via the Xiaomi Al speaker, as well as voice assistants: Tmall, Google, Amazon. All these are control methods and allow real control of the lighting in a supine position.
Hyser also wrote that Xiaomi introduced a long-life electric bike. The battery capacity of such a vehicle with one driver is enough for 75 kilometers and with a passenger for 55 kilometers.

Sinot Yacht Design from the Netherlands showed the Aqua concept, which will be the first in the world to run on liquid hydrogen. The project of a 112-meter ship was presented at a yacht show in Monaco, Forbes reports.
The authors of the concept believe that without refueling the yacht can overcome about seven thousand kilometers. In addition to the elongated stern, helipad and pool with a mini-waterfall, the features of the vessel will be a wheelhouse in the form of a capsule with a 360-degree view and the presence of a viewing room on the pointed bow of the yacht.
The yacht will be able to take on board 14 people in seven cabins. Moreover, all the premises of the vessel will accommodate a crew of 31 people.
Liquid hydrogen will be placed in two 28-ton vacuum-insulated tanks protected by armored glass. They are designed to maintain fuel stability at -253 Celsius. The only release of Aqua is water.
The maximum speed of the yacht will be 17 knots, and cruising - 10-12 knots. It is expected that in two weeks she will be able to deliver passengers from Barcelona to New York without an additional call to the ports.

Japan's National Institute of Information and Communications Technology has unveiled the world's first prototype optical switch with a processing speed of 1 petabits per second.
It is reported by Science Daily.
The prototype uses modern large-scale low-loss optical switches based on MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) technology, three types of the latest multiplex fibers and routes signals from 10 Tbps to 1 Pbps. This is more than 100 times the capacity of modern networks.
The results of the demonstration were recognized by the scientific community at the 45th European Conference on Optical Communication ECOC 2019.
The National Institute is actively collaborating with scientists and industry in the development of new types of optical fiber and high-speed communication for short and long distances, as well as for data center networks. However, for transmitting data at a petabit rate, appropriate switches are required that could accurately control the data flows in networks. Until now, such technologies did not exist.
Petabit - a unit of measurement of the amount of information equal to 1015 (quadrillion) bytes.
It was previously reported that the Japanese company Konica Minolta at the European Leadership Campus-2019 introduced a special mat Projection with Interactive Capture (PIC) with a translation function.
