Small black on board ISS

The conditions in space are completely different from those on Earth, and many things can not be done, for example, to drink coffee due to much lower pressure. This problem was solved by the ISSpresso machine, which in a very simplistic way, is a cosmic coffee machine.

Thanks to the courtesy of the Italian Space Agency, astronauts aboard the International Space Station can now be blamed on the small black, regardless of gravity. It supplies them with a machine called ISSpresso, a work of a well-known coffee maker, Lavzza, created in collaboration with Agrotec engineers.

It is not a simple coffee machine, but a specially designed version capable of operating under microgravity conditions. A special, electronic system takes care of the suction and compression of water before it is heated, then the coffee is mixed with hot water and the brew is prepared.…

The Samsung Gear S3 Apple watch has just become even more uninteresting IFA 2016

Samsung at the press conference held just before the IFA showed two new watches: Gear S3 Classic and Gear S3 Frontier. In addition to the appealing look of classic analog watches, they stand out for their rich functionality, which can envy most competitive solutions – including those from Apple.

Both of Samsung’s new watches are round and have a rotating dial that has popularized the very successful Gear S2. They are made mostly of stainless steel and after looking at them close up, we caught a glimpse of the great attention to detail. They have been prepared for men, because they are really large and massive, which makes them look less attractive on a fine, feminine wrist. But it does not take away their style and charm – Gear S3 Classic is more subdued and elegant, while Gear S3 Frontier should come to the taste of active people – and it was his character more to our liking.

What’s important is that both watches have standard 22 mm grips, so everyone can adjust their look to their liking. Generally, both of Samsung’s novelties have made a very good impression on us, and we like the direction in which gadgets are developing. After a few minutes spent with them we can stick only to their considerable thickness, noticeably exceeding the norms set by analog watches and very difficult for people wearing shirts with cuffs.

Both versions of Gear S3 bring with it a handful of new functionality, very missing in their predecessor. The standard in them – apart from the heart rate monitor – is GPS and barometer. With the addition of the ability to record your route without connecting to the phone, you can very easily check your speed, which will probably be appreciated by bicycle and ski enthusiasts. By contrast, the barometer not only measures the pressure, but also allows you to check the current altitude above sea level. In addition, both Gear S3 variants are equipped with a microphone and speaker, so having one on your wrist, you can pick up an incoming phone call without pulling the phone out of your pocket.…

AdBlock standard equipment Asus devices

The fight against ads on web sites begins to gain momentum. The group of their opponents has just joined Asus, whose boss has announced that the standard equipment of the web browser installed on their own devices will be AdBlock plug.

It sometimes happens that ads placed on web pages are very intrusive, opening up to the whole page, or attacking screaming animators. No wonder many people defend themselves from advertising in different ways, and the most popular of them is the AdBlock plugin, available for web browsers.

Soon you will not even have to worry about installing it, or at least using Asus hardware. A well-known corporation has confirmed that soon, the web browser installed on its devices will have AdBlock as standard equipment. Asus has worked with its creator, AdBlock Plus.…

Smartphone with 32 Mpix camera

Increasingly better devices installed on smartphones have made these devices are slowly replacing the compact digital cameras, perhaps soon to be able to match professional cameras. The first step in this direction is the Vivo X5Pro featuring up to a 32 megapixel camera.

On May 6, the official presentation of X5Pro, the latest Brazilian smartphone from Vivo, will take place. The device will be equipped with a 6-inch touch screen and an eight-core, 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor. It will also get 3 GB of RAM and a retina scanner, while the power supply will provide a 3500 mAh battery. The operating system will be Android 5.0 Lollipop with the company’s Funtouch IU overlay.

These are the parameters that show us that we are dealing with mid-range hardware, but the most interesting component of the new product is the front camera. The manufacturer installed a camera module of up to 32 megapixels there. I point out that this is not a rear camera, but a front camera, which is usually used for video calls and selfie.

This does not mean, however, that the Vivo X5Pro will take picture quality comparable to high end cameras. Such resolution will be obtained not by means of hardware but by special algorithms, which will appropriately extend the photographed image.…

Excessive power consumption in Surface is a Windows Hello problem

Surface Book 4 and Surface Pro 4 tablets have recently begun to complain about battery depletion, which has greatly reduced the working time of these devices. Although the official reason is not known, but there is a high probability that it is responsible for Windows Hello.

Windows Hello is a completely new biometric user identification system, which is part of Windows 10. Microsoft has introduced it to make it easier to log on to the computer and replace the previously used passwords. The software supports biometric technologies, that is face recognition, iris and fingerprints, and protects the equipment by preventing unauthorized access to the data collected.

It is this system that can cause excessive use of Surface Book and Surface Pro 4. Users of these products, on the official -us / surface / forum / surfpro4-surfperf / i5256gb-surface-pro-4-overheats-and-drains-while / 8cad1487-d29b-4c97-856a-3983f4fd70cd?In the & 1 = 1 Microsoft forum they complain that something makes the device work much shorter than they should, even if they are asleep or in standby mode. Wines can lie just on Windows Hello.…

Acer Computers and Tablets

Many new tablets and computers have been released, which are referred to as hybrid. They combine the functionality of a tablet and a laptop. Acer introduces up to six lines of devices, two of which break the strict division of tablet – computer.

With Windows 8, touch screens have become more widespread in laptops. Manufacturers have seen another possibility, replacing one-piece hardware into a multitool that can effortlessly reconfigure from a laptop to a tablet.

One tablet computer is the Aspire R7, featuring a 15.6 “touchscreen. The IPS display makes movies, photos and graphics a lot of detail and saturated colors.

Unusual hinge design in the laptop allows you to position the screen in multiple positions, until the screen on the keyboard and tablet functions. R7 is offered with Intel processors: i5 or i7; HDD capacity up to 1TB; 8GB of memory. During the multimedia presentation, the 8W Dolby Home Theater speaker system is fitted for the surround.

Another ultrabook tablet – the Aspire P3. From the look of the tablet with the lid on which the keyboard is located. The computer weighs 1.39 kg and is less than 2 cm thick. The manufacturer offers it in two versions with an i3 or i5 processor. The sound is emitted by Dolby Home Teather.

Disk space is based on SSD, the manufacturer’s offer are 60 and 120 GB disk capacity. The operating memory is 2GB or 4GB. The touch screen produced by IPS technology has an 11.6 “diagonal. The operating system is Windows 8.

Acer Aspire V3 and Aspire V7 laptops are the continuation of the Aspire V5. Designed for work and entertainment, they offer large screens. Aspire V3 is the equivalent of desktop computers. The screen has a 17.3 “diagonal, GeForce GTX GT760M graphics card with 2 GB or GeForce GT750M with 4 GB and i7 processor (4).

The operating system runs on a quad-core Quad-Core A7 1.2GHz processor. The tablet is 11.1 mm thick and weighs 410 grams.

B1 is slightly smaller than A1, the diagonal of the screen is 7 “. …

Elon Musk defends thesli from charges

Tesla Model S is a car that is not particularly emergency, so a big surprise is the sudden rush of complaints about faulty running suspension. Elon Musk believes that most of these complaints are false and is intended only to discredit the company in the eyes of its customers.

Electric vehicles due to a completely different type of drive do not spoil as often as vehicles equipped with internal combustion engines. There are no injections, timing, two-wheeled wheels and other elements that are subject to frequent accidents.

In spite of this, dozens of complaints have been filed against the NHTSA (national road safety authority) for the Tesla S model for the malfunctioning suspension of the vehicle. Such a large number of complaints received in such a short time is astonishing, as it may mean that the quality of the components installed in this model has deteriorated significantly, and this in turn has attracted governmental attention.

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors, believes, however, that most complaints are false. He believes 37 out of the 40 complaints submitted to NHTSA are false because experts did not find their confirmation in the tested vehicle suspension. Musk conducted his own investigation and is sure that the complaints were false because the reporters gave the wrong address and VIN number of allegedly car.…

Current and water from underwater generators

Shrinking inventories of fossil fuels make scientists increasingly looking for alternatives to energy production. One of the more interesting ideas is the use of ocean tides and this is what Carnegie Wave Energy Limited uses.

Its engineers are carrying out in Australia a project called Perth, which is the world’s first network of equipment that simultaneously produces electricity and supplies drinking water.

The complex is located in Garden Island, Western Australia, near the largest Australian naval base in HMAS Stirling. It consists of a network of three fully autonomous CETO 5 generators, each rated at 240 kW, which are different from the typical wave generators. These models use it not only to produce electricity, but also to supply high pressure water, which is then transported to land where it is converted into drinking water through reverse osmosis.…

The first Chinese space vehicle returned to earth

Over the past few years, the dominance of space dominance has been dominated by the United States and Russia. Recently, however, other countries, such as India, have sent their missions to Mars and China, which have just recovered their first space ship sent to the Moon.

The Middle Kingdom, which is now one of the world’s largest economic powers, has finally begun its cosmic conquest program. China has already placed two probes in the Moon’s orbit, and now plan to send a lander there to deliver a rover to take samples from the surface of the silver globe.

This mission was not planned until 2017, but another unmanned vehicle called Change 5 was returned last week to Earth, which was recently sent on an 8-day trip to the Moon. The ship did not land on its surface, but only made a lap, and then returned to Earth, landing in Mongolia.

The purpose of this mission was to first check how the vehicle managed to enter the Earth’s atmosphere to ensure that the machine did not burn when returned.…

Heavy Russian combat helicopter command

The Ka-52 helicopter is one of the most interesting structures we can find on the equipment of the Russian Armed Forces. This is a double heavy combat helicopter commanded by a system of two coaxial, counter-rotating bearing rotors. In spite of his organizational and commanding functions, he can take part in combat on a par with other assault machines.

Ka-52 Aligator is a modified version of the single-seat Ka-50 assault helicopter. The only difference is that only adding space for the second crew member next to the pilot of the operator, not the tandem. In order not to increase the weight of the structure, the cabin armor was lowered and the ammunition stock was reduced to 460 to 240 rounds of ammunition.

The coaxial rotor system used is characteristic of the Kamowa construction and allows the Alligator to develop relatively high speeds (up to 300 km / h, 270 km / h). An additional advantage is the lack of tail rotor. Pilots sitting next to each other are the most controversial solution, especially in the Russian army. In such a situation, a missile burst in the cockpit hurts both pilots, which completely eliminates the helicopter from further combat and significantly reduces the chance of survival of the crew.

The Ka-52 is a helicopter of command and organization of the battlefield, but with its offensive capabilities it can take an active part in the fight. Russian sources state that there are more than 60 machines of this type (as of December 2013) on the equipment of the Armed Forces of the FR.…
