Toyota wants to help the blind

When we hear the name Toyota, we come to think of solid cars. Automotive is not the only business of the Japanese concern, as it still has many departments dealing with completely different tasks. One of them specializes in modern technologies and has just introduced the latest idea that can improve the lives of the blind.

Project BLAID, the so-called Toyota concept, aims to make life easier for blind people and enable them to move around independently. This is a worn device that assists such person, filling the gap between the guide dog and additional GPS device.

All you have to do is put the device on your shoulder. With built-in cameras, the device can observe the surroundings and process information collected by turning them into navigational aids, which will be guided by the user’s voice, voice or vibration. The system can be very useful in an unfamiliar environment such as a shop or office, greatly facilitating the use of elevators or toilets.…


The new ipad is not compatible with 4G in Australia

The new iPad offers 4G connectivity. Unfortunately, it is not compatible with the 1800MHz frequency that is in force in Australia. Despite this, Apple has clearly advertised this feature on the local market.

The Cupertino company will now have to explain to the Australian court why the New iPad advertised clearly that consumers will be able to enjoy high-speed data communications over the fourth-generation network, although the device is not compatible with 1800MHz, which is valid for 4G communications on The country with Kangurami.

The Australians decided to react and the federal court received a request from the Consumer Protection and Compliance Office, alleging that Apple had misled customers and should pay the penalty and compensate the deceived customers.

Apple has announced that all dissatisfied customers in Australia will be able to return New iPads and the money will be returned to them. We doubt that anyone will benefit from this right.…


Disk to Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi is one of the most interesting inventions of recent years, offering a wealth of possibilities in its applications. Now they will be even bigger, because Western Digital has unveiled the WD PiDrive, a hard drive designed specifically for this small computer.

Raspberry Pi is a computer with a priority of miniaturization, versatility and low price, so it is a primary data medium to serve SD card.

Now, with Western Digital, Raspberry Pi users have been given the opportunity to purchase a dedicated WD PiDrive hard drive. The drive has a non-accidental capacity of 314 GB and is based on a 500 GB personal computer. The company, however, has not limited itself to reducing its capacity, and has modified it to work properly with this microcomputer.

The most important modification is to limit the energy required for proper disk operation. Considering how little energy is consumed by Raspberry Pi, this is a very good idea, and the manufacturer also asserts that lower consumption does not negatively affect propulsion.

Especially for this disk has been a modified version of BerryBoot bootloader, which allows users to install various operating systems and applications on it. Then at every Raspberry Pi startup, from the on-screen menu, we can choose which of your systems we want to run this time.

WD PiDrive in the manufacturer’s official store ($ 45.81) with full hardware. If you are hurrying, then it is currently available at a promotional price of $ 31.42.…


The world’s smallest 4K display

The Japanese company Ortus Technology has decided to break the world record of 4K screen size. But instead of making a big one, she decided to produce the smallest in the world.

As reported by Nikkei Tech-On, the company managed to create a small, only 9.6-inch LCD screen with a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, achieving a record pixel density of 458 ppi. In this way, the world’s smallest panel capable of playing 4K video files is produced, and with 160 degrees of viewing angles and a 72-percent display of the NTSC color palette, no competing IPS display can match it.

The first samples of the new screen should be available next month, and we will be taking a closer look at the electronic fair which will take place in Munich on 13th November.

If it goes into production, Apple may have a big problem because its Retina, looking at the technical characteristics of the new screen, is far behind.…
