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?
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.
Micrashell, The Incredible Futuristic Coronavirus Suit For Going To Bars And Concerts
One of the sectors hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic is, and will be for a long time, entertainment. It is an activity that works fundamentally on the basis of massiveness.
Cinemas and theaters have their reason for being in the public, and nobody goes to a music recital alone, not to a bar or to a party where nobody is. Precisely these are situations in which there must be people to be profitable, and entertaining.
It is not known when the vaccine will arrive, so it is also not clear when everything will be as before if it ever will be …
Taking this reality into account, many companies have started to manufacture fashion masks and masks, but there is one that went much further.
This is the Production Club, a multidisciplinary creative studio based in Los Angeles and Spain and specializes in designing immersive experiences for industries such as music, technology, and gaming.
The company created Micrashell, a sort of astronaut semi-suit, an ultra-futuristic outfit, which they explain was “specifically designed to meet the needs of the nightlife, live events, and entertainment industries in times of coronavirus and social distancing.”.
“Micrashell is a computer protected against viruses, easy to control, fun to use, disinfectable, with the fast deployment of personal protective equipment (PPE) that allows you to socialize without distancing yourself,” they point out from the firm.
The founder of the company, the Spaniard Miguel Risueño, explains that with this idea they intend to help event industries of all kinds, which are now going through an “unprecedented recession”.
Micrashell features an airtight top suit with a protective scuba attached to gloves.
It can be worn on top of any clothing because the suit only occupies the upper body, allowing some freedom within the obvious paraphernalia such as going to the bathroom with ease and even having sex.
“With everyone in our industry focused on finding virtual solutions, we have decided to work on something more emotional, physical, and inherently human so that the industry can have a better chance of recovering quickly.
The team behind the design has a multidisciplinary background such as robotics, fashion design, or special effects, among others. We have worked 24/7 in 12-hour relays between the teams in Spain and Los Angeles until we finished the design. This is how Micrashell was born, “Risueño told El Mundo newspaper.
The suite includes the latest technological innovations. It is made of high performance, cut resistant tactical materials.
The helmet or diving suit has a particle filtration system based on the N95 mask, which is transparent to facilitate the vision of the person; It also comes with a voice communication system that allows you to make calls or control the audio levels of different sound sources without forgetting the pocket with battery charge to store the cell phone.
The apparel also has a built-in speaker system that lets you listen to live music in three modes: direct wireless from the DJ or band, as an emulation of the psychoacoustic-based spatial room sound, or as a direct amplification of club sound thanks to the microphone system embedded in the suit. In addition, it was built with a low resonator system, to transmit frequencies below 150 Hz by direct contact with the person’s body.
Lastly, the suit’s lens has vertical-horizontal rotation and monitoring LEDs with three functions: connection to the phone to take snapshots, a “chest eye” that allows you to see things that the suit obstructs the view and an intelligent vision system based on computer vision.
“The user will be able to consume electronic cigarettes and drinks through refillable capsules designed and adjusted on the underside of the helmet. The drinks are contained within these capsules that are only accessible to the user and the waiter or bartender, thereby thus adding a new level of security to the night world “they assure.
The set also has a lighting system, which the user can manipulate depending on their mood. “For example, a rainbow effect light can express joy, while red static light can express ‘busy’. And a flashing green light can represent a state of rest.”
According to the creators, the patent for this novel design has already been applied to the United States and they intend to carry out its mass production.
Anyway, and although they have not yet put a price on the invention, obviously it will not be “cliche” very accessible to all budgets.
This Robotic Basketball Basket Makes All The Shots For You
It has a robotic board and a motion sensor that measures the trajectory of each shot to move, so missing a shot is almost impossible
Few things are more comforting than hitting a ball, whether it’s paper or basketball. But of course, not everyone has enough aim to do it with a good percentage of correct answers. This is where the robotic basket comes in.
Its operation is easy to explain: you throw the ball more or less in the direction of the basket hoop and the frame of the basket will take care of moving and adapting thanks to a robotic arm, so the ball will always be hit. Come on, it does it all for you and in an instant.
This invention is the work of Shane Wightton, who has a YouTube channel called Stuff Made Here and who is dedicated to making these inventions that are so witty and simple in appearance, but that behind them have a great number of hours of work and knowledge about robotics and, in this case, applied physics.
The magic basket features a Kinect camera, which was originally intended as an accessory for the Xbox game console, but which, given its motion sensors and infrared camera, can be used for many other things. This camera analyzes everything that happens in the room you are in, and when a ball is thrown, it follows its movement and path very quickly.
This camera is connected to a simple computer built next to the robotic axis, which moves once it has calculated where the ball will land. This entire process runs in less than a second, in just 6 milliseconds, which is what it takes to snap your fingers twice.
Wightton had to face various problems, such as that the camera could identify any spherical object, including a human head, such as the ball; but the final result of his work guarantees a very high percentage of success.
The use of technology to turn very technical sports into a child’s game is common and is well documented on YouTube. There are also dart targets in which it is impossible not to hit the center or remote-controlled bowling balls that always strike.
Robots That Emit UV Light Will Be Used In China To Disinfect Hospitals
Now that China appears to have coronavirus infection under control in its territory, one of the biggest concerns is cleaning up the most diverse areas. One of the recent news there is the use of robots to disinfect hospital wards.
Humans do the first stage of cleaning. Then comes the robot. The equipment emits concentrated UV light that is capable of killing bacteria, microorganisms, and viruses. In China, more than 2,000 hospitals are expected to use the technology.
The robot is not new: it was developed in 2014 by the Danish UVD Robots to serve local hospitals that were looking for a more effective way to reduce hospital infection rates. Since 2018, it has been sold globally and is now available in 40 countries.
Per Juul Nielsen, chief executive of UVD Robots, says that demand has increased very recently. “Many units have been sent to China, especially to Wuhan.” According to him, other countries in Asia and Europe have also been looking for the solution. One of the hardest hit today, Italy, tops the list.
