Genopets. How to make money by moving.

Reading Time: 3 minutes

In November 2021, IEO platform Bybit Launchpad launched its project where users can participate in Genopets (GENE) token sales and earn NFT by developing their own virtual pets. Genopets is an NFT game on the Solana blockchain with a Play-to-Earn model as well as its Move-to-Earn variant, where the name speaks for itself. The main focus of this game is to work with wearable devices that can track players’ actual movements. The essence of this game is that the user receives rewards for walking, running, and other physical activities by carrying around a smartphone with a specially installed application. Moreover, the game includes logical puzzles.

How does it work?

Genopets app tracks data from your smartphone, fitness bracelet, and other devices and use it to track player movements. This means the more movements a player makes, the more resources and experience they get to spend on developing the game characters and getting more profit out of it. This is what makes this game significantly different from most video games that involve a sedentary lifestyle. At the initial stage, the player gets a small pet, the value of which will increase as its features, combat characteristics, and appearance are improved. The virtual Genopet evolves by increasing the player’s level and can also be upgraded and customized. Once a certain amount of experience units have been collected, the pet can be upgraded. 

The habitat of such pets is the space, where the pet can grow and develop. Habitats are procedurally generated NFTs, which can be created with in-game tokens and crystals or bought from other users on a special marketplace. The final coinage of NFTs is played for free. This game’s meta-universe uses a dual token system: GENE and KI, with support for various assets on the Solana blockchain. GENE tokens, in turn, are used to manage and implement many game functions. There are three main functions of this asset: Governance, Betting, and VIP access to fresh game content. Governance allows users to vote and make decisions regarding new gameplay options, quests, items, locations, and more. A betting feature gives users the opportunity to earn rewards in KI tokens. This will require joining the GENE decentralized staking pool.                                                                      

Benefits and risks.

By developing your interactive pets, you can sell them on special NFT marketplaces. Another positive aspect of this game is the compulsion to be physically active, which is important for one’s health, especially if he or she has a sedentary lifestyle. This game not only allows the user to earn money but also improves physical health by forcing the player to perform movements in the real world. The advantage of playing Genopets is that you only need a smartphone to play it, which makes the game as convenient and easy to use as possible. This NFT game is also interesting in that it has a combat arena where you can challenge other players to earn even more experience and get into the leaderboard. This feature adds to the excitement of the game. Regarding the weaknesses of the game, it can be noted that in order to participate in the game and get a pet, the user must spend some BIT tokens, which is an initial investment. Another drawback of the game is the limitation of tokens. A single user can purchase no more than 500 GENE tokens.


Genopets is a quite interesting and simple NFT game, it encourages physical activity in users by providing additional earning opportunities. However, like any other similar crypto game, you’ll have to invest in it first and take a certain amount of risk in order to start making a profit from it.


GameFi Or How to make money by playing Blockchain games.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

What is GameFi?

GameFi is a variety of blockchain-based gaming platforms. The first games of this type appeared in 2013, but over time they began to gain popularity rapidly. But the rise in popularity came in September 2021, and in August of that year, GameFi’s platforms experienced a real boom. For example, the developers of one of the most popular games, Axie Infinity, made over $1.2 billion in revenue.

How does it work?

In blockchain-based games, characters are NFTs (non-fungible tokens). Players have an option to create their own unique characters or buy existing characters, pump them up and sell them. Payment is made in the cryptocurrency of the platform on which the game is based. Moreover, in some games, you can bet on the outcome of battles. In order to sign up for such a game, you need a crypto wallet. Since most GameFi platforms adhere to the Play-to-Learn principle. However, you should study in detail the project where you are going to register and transfer the funds. The internal tokens of the most popular games have already moved beyond their platforms and are traded on cryptocurrency exchanges. The GameFi industry is gaining momentum due to the dynamic development of the decentralized platform and gaming segment. Some game tokens are even accepted in regular shops, such as Smooth Love Potion (SLP) in the Philippines. 

Benefits and potential risks. What is behind the scene?

Despite the fact that some token games have started to be accepted in regular shops, the Philippine authorities have voiced their concerns and are going to regulate a special tax on SLP transactions. This means that such transactions are not sustainable and should be treated with caution. There are many scammers online who create such gaming platforms posing as blockchain games, which are actually pyramid schemes. Experts note that some GameFi platforms are currently undervalued and lag behind the general development trend. According to analysts, the FaraLand and IG Gold platforms are expected to boom in the near future. Experts predict the further development of the decentralized gaming market. However, the value of tokens can fluctuate significantly under the influence of the bitcoin exchange rate, which makes it very risky. It is well known that the entire market depends on the movement of the first cryptocurrency. This could mean that if bitcoin collapses, GameFi projects are likely to collapse as well. In the near future, there will probably be resources (metaverses) where it will be possible to enter with a leveraged NFT character and compete with characters from other games. There will also be entire virtual markets where players can sell or buy everything they need.


GameFi’s blockchain-based gaming platforms are rapidly gaining popularity. However, such innovative technologies can have both upsides and downsides. It all depends on the risk the consumer is willing to take and the benefit he or she can derive from it.

DWARF II. A new way to look in the sky.

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Every astronomy enthusiast who likes to look at celestial bodies in the sky understands that such a telescope can be quite expensive. Moreover, traditional telescopes are large, heavy, and not mobile enough. This is why the DWARF II telescope was created by TinyScope CAM, which enables users to pursue their interests without difficulty. This smart telescope gives users incredible detail of an object, at the same time being extremely small in size.

The developers took into account all the shortcomings of the previous model DWARF I and created an improved version of the telescope, which is so beloved by users. Moreover, they added the ability to control the telescope using a cell phone. The developers also said that in the nearest future they will provide API and documentation for developers. So they will allow users to develop and run their own programs on DWARF II.

Developers claimed that this cutting-edge telescope is able to take pictures of objects located deep in space, and moreover, it is even capable of taking photos of other galaxies. Due to the diagonal of the sensor of the IMX415 telescopic camera, the diagonal of the 35mm frame is approximately 6.7. Thus, on a 35mm camera, this 100mm lens is approximately equivalent to a 675mm lens. The Developers say that this should be enough for taking fantastic pictures of the Moon and other bigger galaxies. DWARF II can capture multiple images using 2-axis scanning technology and, later, stitch them together to form one image. In this case, The number of pixels can even reach one billion.

DWARF II is compact, and has the following technical characteristics:

Lens: 100 mm focal length, is optimized to the diffraction limit

Motor: 0.001°/s~36°/s ultra-wide speed range, high-precision positioning

Sensor: SONY IMX415 Starvis, 8 million pixels, high sensitivity

CPU/NPU: 4-Core Cortex-A7 1.5 GHz CPU, 2 TOPS NPU

To take a photo of any deep-sky object, traditionally, astronomical observation telescopes must be equipped with an equatorial instrument and a camera. All these equipment prices start at $1500 and can be even higher. So, it can be concluded that for ordinary users it will be quite costly. Whereas, DWARF II early bird price starts from $459.

Summarizing everything that was mentioned before, It must be said that DWARF II is an awesome, light, user-friendly, and compact telescope. In comparison with traditional equipment, it is very cost-effective. Moreover, it allows users to develop custom software, using their API. And in my opinion, this advantage allows them to gain experience that simply can not be achieved with traditional telescopes.

3D scanning has never been so simple. Creality introduced their brand new CR-Scan Lizard.

Reading Time: 3 minutes

3D printing technology and capabilities are developing rapidly. Moreover, in our modern time, this technology of 3D printing is already used by many companies in various fields For example, some companies use it to make different figurines of the main characters from video games, while other companies use 3D printer to manufacture parts for their cars or even print whole cars completely on 3D printer which has a size quite impressive, and some of the organizations even print whole houses.

For the production of high quality models, which could later be used for 3d printing, people are using different programs for 3d modeling. And it is important to note that the average average user would be rather difficult to understand these programs. Moreover, to prepare a 3d model for printing requires the necessary knowledge and skills in this area of activity.

To simplify the process of creating a model of almost any complexity, the company Creality developed a portable 3D scanner called CR-Scan Lizard. Developing this product they received a lot of positive feedback from the general public, as well as from 3D scanner enthusiasts.

The scanner Creality provides can accurately record the slightest detail with a whopping accuracy of up to 0.05 mm. It is achieved by the improved precision calibration method. Its 3D point distance ranges from 0.1 mm to 0.2 mm and the minimum scanning size is 15 mm. The usage of near-infrared light sources is both eye-safe and light-compatible. High-precision 3D scanners are typically expensive, but the CR-Scan Lizard will be inexpensive with reasonable pricing.

The CR-Scan Lizard helps users to save time. 3D scanning is as simple as taking a video thanks to the clever algorithm. Even large sections like the engine hood, automobile door, front or back bumpers, and so on no longer require the use of markers. With the 3D model built up precisely, the CR-Scan Lizard can catch fine details of the subject with aplomb, achieving no-marker scanning.

Software providing smart automative algorithms

Model optimization is now possible with just one click thanks to CR Studio’s integration of 3D complete automation methods. It has features such as multi-positional auto-alignment, auto-noise removal, auto-model simplified topology, auto-hole filling, and auto-texture mapping, all of which impress users with their ease of use. It’s user-friendly enough and can be suitable even for children.

Even in broad sunshine, the CR-Scan Lizard scans black items and maintains outstanding performance. This innovation is based on a high-precision binocular camera system with a self-developed multi-spectral optical system, which greatly improves light adaptation and allows the CR-Scan Lizard to scan more subjects, having true color fidelity.

Different scanning modes were created with the goal of giving consumers a mode switch option and allowing them to pick the most appropriate mode for their needs. With three scanning modes: turntable scanning, handheld scanning, and handheld plus turntable scanning, the CR-Scan Lizard can scan objects ranging in size from 15 mm to 1500 mm.

Creality also allows users to connect CR Studio to Creality Cloud, the 3D model can be uploaded to the database (Creality Cloud). So, slicing and printing can be done with only one click, which is very convenient. Moreover, If the user is looking for ways to connect with friends, the model can be shared for collaborative editing.

Blender, Maya, Rhino, 3DMax, Fusion 360, and other 3D design software are supported by CR-Scan Lizard, which is also compatible with both Windows 10 64bit and MacOS.

Summarizing everything mentioned above, it can be concluded that Creality has created an awesome device, which can be beneficial not only for ordinary users, but also for some small businesses and even for game development studios. The process of creating the highly detailed model for various purposes is simplified significantly, saving time and increasing productivity.

VR is on a new level. Emerge Home allows a tactile experience.

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Nowadays, VR techs are actively developing and in the next article one of such cutting-edge technologies will be described. The Emerge Home system is a breakthrough, which allows you not only to immerse yourself in the world of virtual reality and metaverses but also to feel the inner virtual space with bare hands. It is not just a VR set that allows you to see the 3D objects in the virtual worlds or games, but also to interact with them, to sense their shape, and help the user to get as much VR experience as possible, transporting him or her into the virtual world with just a few clicks. 

The Emerge Home system is currently at the development stage, and its VR kit consists of two main tech components and a mobile application. 

How does everything work?

The first tech component that helps the user to enlarge his VR experience is a VR headset (Emerge Home Quest 2 app). 

The second component is the Emerge Wave-1 desktop device that conveys a physical experience with breakthrough technology. Sculpted ultrasonic waves on the surface of the system create a field in the air up to three feet above the device itself and allow users to interact with virtual objects. Moreover, the system itself is similar in size to a thirteen-inch laptop.  

For the final step, the user has to install a dedicated Emerge Home mobile app, which allows him or her to connect the devices, customize the avatar and set a Center environment. Moreover, this application is capable of sending messages, creating rooms, and inviting your friends before gathering in the metaverse.

Based on research conducted by the National Research Group, It can be concluded that more than half of potential customers (78% of respondents) claim that when communicating with people virtually, they lack the opportunity of physical contact, and this cutting-edge VR system can significantly improve the situation. 

However, there is a high risk that, in the nearest future, live communication, which is an important factor in human interactions, will be replaced by such kinds of technologies. 

Any breakthrough in science is valuable. Some people may find it useful, while others may see it as technology that brings more harm. However, Emerge’s expertise can help the science and progress of virtual reality, and not only facilitate human interaction but also lead to new innovations that follow.

MUAMA – Instant voice translator.

Our world is constantly developing. Everything is in an enormous rush. And I’m talking not only about technology development but also about people. It can be noticed that, nowadays, people are almost running on the streets. Most of them have a lot of work that needs to be done by a certain deadline. They do not talk with strangers at all. Maybe, they are really busy and have a lot of stuff to do or maybe they are foreigners and they have some problems with a local language.

Considering it from the student’s point of view, who is also a foreigner, I can confirm that it is quite a job to manage your time because every student has a lot of stuff to be done. Sometimes, you cannot even find the time for yourself, for your hobbies, yet not talking about learning a new language, which is spoken in the country you are living in. Moreover, if a student manages to learn it, he may face some other issues. For example, lack of vocabulary, lack of practice or language barrier. Due to all these, a student cannot talk fluently and might be embarrassed about the way he speaks a local language.

Hopefully, the Japanese invented a device, which can solve such language-oriented-problems of millions of students and adults all over the world.



This device, called MUAMA Enence, is a Japanese state of the art, that allows its users to communicate instantly in more than 40 languages. This device translates the language automatically. The only thing the user needs to do is connect the device to the smartphone and to press the button before speaking. This device is simple in use and now it is available for everyone.


Developers say that It can make traveling, shopping, conducting international business conferences easier for many people.

When considering business meetings, it can save your money, because you do not need to hire an instant translator. However, the device cannot be so flexible as a real person. Moreover, while conducting a business meeting it is highly important to choose the right words and explain in the right way, because everyone is unique, and It is necessary to find an appropriate approach to each of business partners.

I think, this device can be useful for some people, however, there are so many mobile apps-alternatives. For example, Google and Yandex provide dictionaries with instant translate function for free. The quality of translation is not enough professional for using it during a business conference, and it is still improving, however, these services are suitable for daily life using.


Do we really need such extra devices like MUAMA, and will they be used in the future?

Creating the music has never been so simple! – Orba

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Orba – something unique on the market

Currently, the music industry is becoming more and more popular. Taking into consideration the production of modern music, it does not require any special musical education. Knowing just basic knowledge about musical composition, anyone can make his personally made musical tracks and melodies. There is a lot of software that is used for this purpose today. For example, FL Studio, Ableton Live, Apple Logic Pro X, Avid Pro Tools, etc. Moreover, a variety of additional musical devices are developed. For instance, synthesizers, MIDI controllers, loopers, drum pads, etc.

Artiphon is a brave company, which designs musical devices. It was founded in 2011 and based in Nashville. They presented a new device, which is designed in a quite interesting way. They wanted to design a new device, which contains a synthesizer, looper and MIDI controller at the same time. Furthermore, this device lets anyone make music immediately whenever they are, and this device was called Orba.

Orba has a minimalistic design. Developers said that they had been inspired by simple geometry objects, like a half of a grapefruit, that fits in almost everyone’s hand. Although this is a small all-in-one musical instrument, Orba has many sensors that read users’ taps, pressure, radial slides, bumps, shakes, tilts, spins, swipes, etc.

Obra has:
• eight capacitive-sensing pads for feather-touch control.
• accelerometer and gyroscope are installed to capture a range of gestures
• center menu button accesses four presets, the looper, and other functions
• onboard synthesizer and built-in speaker installed to offer an immediate playing experience

Moreover, the creators have developed an app, which can be synchronized with the Orba device, and it provides more sounds, songs, and settings. The visual part of this device was also developed quite satisfying. Multicolor LEDs respond the way you play, and of course, Vibro-feedback is provided. For example, while shaking or tilting. This device has a 3.5mm minijack to be able to connect it to headphones, speakers, and amps.

Creators said that using this device was so simplified that even a beginner could feel like a professional.

In my opinion, this is a great device to have fun, enjoy your free time and relax at brakes between working hours. Moreover, this device will help people, who have just started their careers as a music producer, to develop their skills. It must be mentioned that there is not any similar device on the market, which is as professional, as user-friendly and as affordable as Orba. I think this device can be one of the worthy competitors in the global market.

What do you think, was it a good idea to create such a small all-in-one instrument for everyone?



Top 10 Best Music Production Software – Digital Audio Workstations

Now all GAMERS can experience something NEW…

Reading Time: 3 minutes

VR Gaming.

Probably, you have heard about virtual reality. And now it is becoming more and more popular among gamers all over the world. Therefore, companies are creating more games supporting VR.


The original idea of Virtual Reality was to create a world close to the real environment, to make a player believe that he is the protagonist of this plot and immerse him into the story.

To achieve that innovators have to make this reality so indistinguishable from the real world. Even now they are developing various devices, for instance, VR helmets, hand controllers, gloves with additional sensors, which allow monitoring the exact position of each finger. However, one Belarusian company called TESLASUIT has created something more than just a VR device.

Feelings go to a new level.

Teslasuit – is a breakthrough in VR Gaming, because it allows its users to feel the environment. This suit is equipped with climate control, biometric and motion capture sensors.

So, what does it mean?

It means, that a player can feel everything, what happens with the main character in-game. For example, the player can feel the weather in a desert (warm temperatures), strokes from the bullets (not so painful as in real life) and even touches of other game characters integrated into the game.

All these are available due to electric pulses that stimulate your muscles.

Moreover, developers created a flexible system of settings, which allows integrating this suit into almost all games easily. And now, all game developers are capable of implementing this device into their VR games.

Other benefits.

Although the main aspect of using this suit is gaming, the costume can be used in sports training. For instance, first of all, the movements of a professional sportsman are recorded with a system of motion capture. Then, a newcomer wears a suit, and his movements are compared with the movements of a professional. If the system identifies, that a newcomer is doing something wrong, it will send a signal and will ask him to adjust his movements.

Furthermore, this suit and VR helmet will help to train highly specialized staff, who work in dangerous conditions. For example, workers who drilling the well.



The Teslasuit developers believe that such a system of monitoring muscle activity can be beneficial in medicine too. They are developing a neural network that will recognize the underlying disease. For instance, such systems can be installed into a simple T-shirt or trousers, and you do not need to visit a doctor, you can send him a history of your muscles condition and the doctor can establish the diagnosis without your physical presence.

This device of a new generation offers to all gamers a great chance to get new game experience, and also can be applied in other fields of activity.

So, if you had a chance to experience everything that the main hero feels, would you try this suit on and save the world?

(I know, almost all of you are thinking of “The Witcher 3. Wild Hunt.”)

China is developing bubble robots…

Reading Time: 2 minutes

New breakthrough!

China has always been one of the most developed countries all over the world, and even nowadays it never stops surprising us. Moreover, it is one of the most progressive countries, which invents new technologies concerning medicine and robotic technologies. Sometimes, they are combining them in order to achieve new levels of “Healing people”. They are the triggers of progress in Biochemistry and Biotechnology, and one such breakthrough will be described in this article.

Tiny helper?

The team working at the State Key Laboratory Robotics in Shenyang has successfully turned a gas bubble in water into a microrobot, which can perform serious enough operations on a very small scale with 99% accuracy. This robot is capable of doing certain tasks in the water environment. For instance, it can be beneficial while cloning or modifying an embryo located in its original environment.


Could you imagine an extremely tiny bubble, which has a size of some micrometers wide? This little “thing” can save someone’s future life, and this is only one example of using this technology.


For a better understanding, 1 micrometer is 10*10^(-5) centimeters.




Originally, It was created to help scientists, who always work with small objects under a microscope, with doing researches. These scientists always struggle with handling, moving and doing various operations on microscopical elements. In most cases, the majority of these tiny objects are damaged during the researches. This is the main reason why these “Tiny helpers” were created.


With the help of the laser, people generate high temperatures, forming a bubble. The beam movement is followed by the bubble bot. That’s how scientists control this “Tiny helper”.
It was estimated, that these bots cannot live for long. During a couple of minutes, it remains stable, and scientists are capable of manipulating microstructures.



Despite the fact that this technology is still in the early developed stage, scientists believe that it has enormous potential.

They say: “The micro-bubble robot… can be useful for tissue transplants, regenerative medicine, and biological research”

Due to this breakthrough, cloning and transplantation of artificial organs will no longer be a fiction, and all these things will become trivial soon.


What do you think, will these robots change the accustomed way or conducting surgical operations?




If you had a chance to UPGRADE your BRAIN, would you do it?

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Cyberpunk is just around the corner…

We live in a cutting-edge. Technologies are developing pretty fast. Today, probably, it would be hard to surprise someone with robots, self-driving cars, 3D-printers, and their abilities. Even now people are developing bionic hands, legs, exoskeletons to make the lives of people with debilities easier. They are implementing a software inside, trying to do their best, only that people to feel like a full-fledged cell of society.


Thanks to a BCI developed at the University of Pittsburgh that stimulates the sensory region of the brain, the man, whose name is Nathan Copeland, is the first one who managed to feel a sense of touch through a mind-controlled robotic arm.

Upgrade your brain like hardware for PC…

But if there is a technology that can help not only people with limited opportunities but also healthy people to increase their productivity?

If you had a chance to upgrade yourself, would you let other people to implant a chip in the brain?

It sounds like a creepy fiction, however, nowadays scientists are actively developing such chips, brain computers, that are able to increase your productivity, working in a global company, and also expand your memory, allowing you never to forget a name or a face of a certain person, to remember everything detailed.

There are various ways of connecting brain signals with brain computers, or BCIs – but the Elon Mask’s company called “Neuralink” has developed this technology, even more, using tiny, super-thin, flexible micro-electrodes, which allow special small device to be implanted inside the brain, in order to read and record the neural signals activity.  This technology has already been tested on animals, and they are preparing for the next step, testing on humans.


Elon Musk told about Neuralink’s plans for its progressive BCI technology, which involves using a specially built surgical robot, machine to implement thousands of thread-like electrodes into the brain.


The technology isn’t there yet, however, a separate, removable device would be a better option for healthy people, because it could be kept and used outside the body and switched off easily anytime.

Although this technology may be extremely beneficial, and mind-controlled devices can be invented, people will be facing some ethical problems. For example, their life would be even less private than now, their memories and thoughts would be monitored all the time. In addition, people’s devices can be easily hacked, controlled and probably their future behavior will not be the same. They can totally lose their freedom.

So before improving your brain with implants, you should ask yourself…

Is it worth living in a world in which there is no freedom?
