Levi's Bluetooth Jacket Lets You Control Your Smartphone

Levi’s Bluetooth Jacket

Google’s Jacquard project reached Levi’s consumers two years ago. But its new version is much friendlier: built into the brand’s jackets, it adds a small touch-sensitive smartphone remote control to the sleeve. You will be able to purchase both the simple model ($ 198) and the shaggy lined ($ 248). The price difference from the offline option is still over $ 100.

They now use a smaller (and therefore easier to add to the wrist) Bluetooth module and a new method of making: Levi’s has given up weaving the touch-sensitive threads on the sleeve. Instead, the company makes a regular jacket and then inserts the item developed by the Jacquard project into the left wrist.

This made it possible to significantly reduce part cost (the previous model cost $ 350). Also, the first version needed to have a stiffer sleeve, as it was necessary to prevent random touches from triggering the system – this was solved with better algorithms.

How does it work?

To wear the jacket, you must have a Google account (most people already have one, considering the number of Gmail users). The customer then has to agree to the company’s terms of service and privacy policy. If you wish, you can choose to submit reports.

Up to four different swipes and ringtones can be programmed to perform actions such as playing music, turning on noise-cancelling headphones, muting the device, inserting a markup on a map, or having the device’s virtual assistant read calendar appointments or details. from a requested Uber, among others.

Physically, the difference from the smart jacket to the ordinary one, besides the little flexible left wrist, is the fact that there is a single push button. This is necessary because, although the system works with touch materials, it relies on electronic components. According to Google and Levi’s, washing does not spoil the product.

The same Bluetooth module added to the jacket is still worn in the backpack that Yves Saint Laurent launched in early September. After inserting it into the appropriate slot on the sleeve, stop it with the phone. A small notification light can be useful when it is difficult to feel your sleeve vibration.

Two years ago, the outfit was intended for cyclists, who should not have to look at a screen while moving and could slide their fingers on their wrists for some actions. Now your audience seems to be more extensive.

South Korean TV Station Introduces An Artificial Intelligence-Based Host

South Korean TV Station Introduces An Artificial Intelligence-Based Host

Even though today many of us often read news from online media sites, the presence of presenters on television is still needed. This is because the host must have his own expertise to read the news so that it can attract the attention of the audience.

However, in this era of sophisticated technology, of course, there is a possibility that the work of this presenter can be replaced by modern technology. One of them is Artificial Intelligence.

This was also directly proven by a television station from South Korea called MBN News, where recently his party had exhibited an AI-based presenter who came under the name AI Kim and became the first host in South Korea to be developed using AI.

It is known that AI Kim or who has the full name AI Kim Ju-Ha was made based on the original presenter who worked at MBN News, namely Kim Ju-Ha. It was stated that the AI ​​took about 10 hours to identify Kim Ju-Ha’s voice, speech, and body movements.

“I was created using deep learning technology by studying Kim Ju-Ha’s videos starting from the way he spoke, the sound he produced, the facial expressions, the movements of the lips, and how his body moved. I can deliver the exact same news as Kim Ju-Ha did, “said AI Kim Ju-Ha in his introduction.

It appears that AI Kim Ju-Ha can indeed speak very fluently like a real human. Even if we weren’t told that it was an AI, we probably wouldn’t even notice!

This elastic sensor technology can make robots and VR feel like a human

The development of VR (Virtual Reality) technology is currently quite great, where there are many things that have been presented using this technology. But currently, there is still a barrier between the VR world and the real world, the barrier is that we can’t touch objects in the VR world.

This is what makes researchers from Cornell University interested in developing sensors that can detect objects in the real world and can later be displayed in VR. This technology comes in the form of an elastic glove which is equipped with several sensors on the fingers.

Not only is it useful for humans, but this technology is also known to be used by robots so that they can sense objects in the real world. Maybe in the future, the robots will be able to find out what object they are holding by using these sensors.

Rob Shepherd as the head of the research said that at this time the technology had begun to be completed. Although it is quite difficult to gauge what touch feels like in the real world, these technologists allow them to make interaction relationships, especially for touch.

In addition, Shepherd also said that this technology would also be very useful for the development of VR and AR-based on motion capture. Because this sensor can tell how much pressure to apply when doing something, for example when repairing a car and changing its wheels.

OmniVision Introduces 64MP Sensor With 1.0µm Pixels

OmniVision presenta un sensor de 64 MP con píxeles de 1,0 µm

Last February, OmniVision launched a 64 MP 1 / 1.7 sensor, which has 0.8 µm pixels. And now, the company is releasing a sensor that’s bigger than ever again, which is 64MP 1 / 1.34 and has 1.0µm pixels. Interestingly, this sensor can be used in ultrawide screens.

The pixels, which are larger than OmniVision OV64A, are 60% more sensitive to light compared to 0.8 µm pixels. Naturally, it has a 4-cell (aka Quad Bayer) color filter for pixel binning.

While it can output 8K videos at 30fps, the more interesting mode is 4K with 4-in-1 binning which results in sizable 2.0µm pixels. Especially when used for photos, this same binning mode can produce 16MP images.

This sensor also supports HDR which is even brighter and processes the HDR image faster than before.

Not only that, this sensor can provide them with a stable 4K 120 FPS and also offers 1080p 240 FPS and 720p 480FPS modes.

Reportedly this sensor will be delivered before this year ends which is possible in 2021, some mid-range and high-end phones can use this sensor.
