Toyota set to require that concept to a completely completely different level by reworking a former works into a city wherever individuals can live, work, and research mobility.

Danish architecture studio BIG is designing a “prototype city of the future” with wooden buildings and autonomous vehicles for Japanese car company Toyota near Mount Fuji in Japan.

Named Woven City, the first phase of development on the site of a former car-factory will be home to 2,000 people who will test the vehicles, robotics and smart homes in a “real-world environment”. The city of the future will include houses made from sustainable wood built in the Japanese tradition of wood joining. They’ll also have photovoltaic tiles for power. Additionally, these homes will be home to AI and robot experiments. The vision is for them to take care of things like taking out the trash, setting the temperature on your fridge and even checking in on your health. For the first period of time Toyota’s facilities there will be housing for employees, their families, scientists and retirees.

The Woven City will be built around a network of streets that will cater for transportation at three different speeds.Buildings throughout the event are engineered from timber with star panels placed on the roofs. The blocks are organized in teams around central courtyards. “By simply ‘reprogramming’ existing streets, we can begin to reset the balance between people, mobility, and nature in cities as diverse as Tokyo or New York, Copenhagen or Barcelona”, said Akio Toyoda.

Designer Kristian Ulrich Larsen introduced a Flip phone with triple display.Flashy Flip phone will collapse in your pocket and have three flexible AMOLED touchscreens with power of Android.

In its triangular position (seen over), the telephone lays on level surfaces exquisitely, suggestive of a bedside morning timer. Be that as it may, in the event that you don’t have plans to dream of electric sheep at any point in the near future, the Flip can move into a slimmer adaptation of itself, crumbling and hiding one of its three super AMOLED screens between the external two.

Every one of the Flip’s three sides are associated by steel work joins, so snapping it separated comes as no simple accomplishment. Furthermore, on the off chance that you absentmindedly happen to sit on the telephone, the Gorilla Glass screen will safe it from your inattention.

Beside the curiosity of your telephone having the option to serve as a blossom container – truly, watch the implanted video beneath – the Flip’s plan tends to enough down to earth cell phone client issues to make it a captivating item idea. For a certain something, the Flip’s capacity to transform starting with one shape then onto the next could prove to be useful, state, when you want to peruse a digital book on a real double sided, open-confronted surface.

Or on the other hand in the event that you want to chip away at a minuscule looking workstation, you can flip one screen up to a 90 degree resting position and type away on the LED-sponsored console. What’s more, with the forward looking camcorder, moving the Flip go into the triangular shape implies sans hands video visiting.

And what is your opinion about this kind of phone? Share your opinion in comments 🙂

7 Amazing Examples of Digital Twin Technology In Practice

You may have heard the term “digital twins” before, but you probably don’t realize that this 10-year concept is finally ready for use in industry programs. For those unfamiliar with the idea, the digital twin is a truly computer-simulated version of a real-world object that uses real-world data to understand the state of the object now and in the future. Imagine, for example, a computer model of a car and test how that car will change in age.

Digital-twin use cases

  • Manufacturing is the area where the release of digital twins is perhaps the most remote, and factories are already using digital twins to mimic their processes, as is the Deloitte study.
  • Car or automotive digital twins are made possible by the fact that cars are already equipped with telemetry sensors, but technology improvements will become more important when more autonomous vehicles hit the road.
  • Healthcare is a sector that produces digital twins of the people we mentioned above. Assisted-size sensors return health information to a digital twin that is used to monitor and predict a patient’s well-being.

How does a digital twin work?

The twin is built so that it can receive input from sensors that collect data from a real partner. This allows the twin to simulate a physical object in real time, in a process that offers an understanding of performance and potential problems. The twin can also be designed based on a prototype of its physical counterpart; in this case, the twin can provide feedback as the product improves; the twin can even serve as the prototype before any physical version is built.

4 amazing examples of digital twin technology

  • At the Spring Gala Gala, which aired on China’s Central Television, four human hosts joined in on a copy of themselves of AI, ObEN’s own digital twin. They are more than avatars created by computers because they used machine learning, natural language processing, and computer vision to create virtual copies of hosts. Future programs for this technology include plans to create teachers, nurses, and doctors.
  • Digital twin technology has even been deployed to improve Formula 1 racing. In sports, where every second counts, simulation can help the driver and the car team know what adjustments can improve performance.
  • NASA has used mating technology, the precursor to digital twin technologies, from the early days of space exploration to solve the problem of operating, maintaining, and repairing systems when you are physically not near them. This is how the engineers and astronauts on Earth determined how to save the Apollo 13 mission. Today, digital twins are used by NASA to investigate next-generation vehicles and aircraft.
  • There is even a digital twin Singapore! Imagine all the variables that go into managing a city. Digital twin technology helps urban planners understand and improve energy efficiency, as well as many applications that can improve the lives of their citizens.

Woman Wears Google Glass

Smart glasses or smart glasses are computer glasses that add information along with what the owner sees. In addition, smart glasses are sometimes referred to as wearable computer glasses that are capable of altering their optical properties during runtime. Smart Sunglasses programmed with electronic tint change are an example of the latest type of smart glass.

There’s a race to be the first to make a set of glasses that everyone will wear, which means they have to be fashionable and sleek enough to wear all day and everywhere you go. Advocates of the technology hope that you’ll one day be able to replace every screen in your life with just one pair of smart glasses.

Overlay is achieved through an optical head-mounted display (OHMD) or built-in wireless glasses with transparent display (HUD) or augmented reality (AR). These systems have the ability to display predicted digital images and also allow the user to view or better view them.

Like other computers, smart glasses can collect information from internal or external sensors. It can control or retrieve data from other tools or computers. It can support wireless technologies such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS. Few models work with the mobile operating system and function as a portable media player for transferring audio and video files to a user via Bluetooth or WiFi. Some smart glass models also have full logging and activity tracking capabilities.

How they work

Smart glasses work through a combination of display, sensors and accelerometers, coupled with smart software and internet connectivity to make them really useful. They tend to come with touchpads and/or voice controls to help users navigate the software that powers them, which can be embedded into the glasses themselves or incorporated into a handset – or both.Результат пошуку зображень за запитом "Smart glasses"

Do they work?

They’re still in early stages of development and there are lots of issues to overcome, such as security and privacy. Do we want a society where people can be filmed by others unknowingly?

In addition, there are problems with battery life. With smartphones still draining energy fairly quickly, smart glasses are yet to deliver a usable consumer experience from a battery-life perspective.


On Amazon prices are from 799$ to 17$.

Well, the curiosity is over, 5G technology is expected to hit the market in 2020. In this blog, we will read about how 5G will bring advancement in the internet of things devices and what exactly does this new technology offers us.

5G is a multi-service network, that is able to adapt a whole host of devices: smartphones of course, but also enhanced 360° content and augmented reality, connected objects, fridges, driverless cars. 5G technology will change the way we live, work, and play-for good. It promises to greatly enhance the speed, Verizon’s network showed speeds surging past 1 gigabit per second.

But why everybody is talking of its great influence on modern people lives? One of the benefits is something called low latency. You’ll hear this term a lot. Latency is time between clicking on link or start streaming a video, which sending the request up to network, and delivering you the site or playing your video, when the network responds. With current network this time is about 20 milliseconds, but with 5G it reduces to 1 milliseconds. Also, the literally incredible think about new generation network is that it is designed to connect a far greater number of devices than a traditional cellular network does. 5G can multiple devices around you, whether it’s a dog collar or a refrigerator; it is also specifically built to handle equipment  used by business, such as farm equipment or ATMs.

One of advantages of new network are, as i believe, that 5G can make a big profit for rural and suburban areas that have not enjoyed the same access to wireless as cities; in health industry: hospitals will not only be able to remotely diagnose a patient’s complaints, but they will also have the ability to remotely perform surgeries and other hands-on procedures using digital avatars; environment: connected devices will transform data on weather conditions, plant health, crop health, moisture, mineral and chemical levels, pest presence and more, affecting labor allocation, cost management, waste reduction and yield; smart cities: IoT sensors will monitor and collect data on everything from air quality, to energy use, to traffic patterns. 5G will be able to use artificial intelligence to analyze the massive amounts of data being collected to automate processes that are currently done manually.

Can’t I just pick up 5G with my existing smartphone?

Sorry, no. 5G technology requires a specific set of antennas to tap into specific bands. For instance, Sprint’s LG V50 is specifically tuned for its 5G network. Likewise, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is tuned for Verizon’s network and its millimeter wave spectrum. You can expect more 5G phones to launch later this year, with phones able to ride on different networks coming out in mass in 2020.

Samsung Galaxy S10 5G

How broadly will 5G be available in 2019?

Here’s the other concern: 5G might still be only a theoretical possibility for a lot of people.

T-mobile says it’s launching in 30 cities this year, AT&T will have 22 cities. But it’s unclear how wide the coverage will be. Globally, China, Japan and South Korea are racing to build out their 5G networks, with Europe turning on its own 5G network now. So don’t feel like you need to rush out to buy that first 5G smartphone. Chances are, service won’t be widely available until 2020 or beyond.

So, how do you feel about inevitable changes in our generation and world? Do you agree, that 5G will change it?
