Today, we have a story about Apple’s “ultra” security measures. Someone compressed the entire movie on a floppy disk and delved into the way we can connect without contact in the post-pandemic world. But for this kind of opening remark, let’s come to a family of dancing robots.
Watching the Atlas robot and the entire Boston Dynamics family, including the dog-like Spot and box-stacked Handle, dancing with the “Do You Love Me”
You can get a $400 smart speaker for a low price of $159.
Although Google’s Home Max formally retired and withdrew from sales a few weeks ago, the Google Store once again offered sales of the speaker. When a message is displayed that the device is sold out and the customer is prompted to try a new pair of Nest Audio devices, it still allows you to purchase a charcoal-colored Home Max speaker for $179.
Everything we said in the comments still exists because the voice-activated speaker has excellent sound quality and can be plugged directly into Google’s Assistant ecosystem. The best part now is that it no longer costs $400, at least until sold out.
They can watch the low-resolution version of “Shrek” on a custom VCR.
Redditor is compressing the entire feature film to a resolution of 120 x 96 pixels at a smooth speed of four frames per second. In this way, they can insert Shrek into media with a storage capacity of 1.44 MB, which accounts for about 0.03% of the 4.7 GB capacity of a DVD. In fact, u/GreedyPaint shred Shrek to 1.37 MB, so there is even some leeway.
To play this game, you can connect a floppy drive to the Raspberry Pi as part of a custom VCR system, which is affectionately called LimaTek Diskmaster. After the device is turned on, a self-made animation will be displayed, requiring the Redditor to insert the disk. When they do, the movie will automatically play. Just don’t expect it to look any good.
And how we will be contacted in the post-pandemic world.
What will the world look like after the pandemic? In any case, technology will be the center of everything. This year’s memories are still very primitive, and the conditions are still very rich-wash your hands two “Happy Birthday” songs! Don’t touch your face! -Still instinctive.
In 2020, the technology industry promoted products designed to minimize, disinfect or track physical contact. Think about it: wearable devices that prevent you from touching your face, or non-touch touch screens and buttons. With the full opening of society, which ones will we discard? Which will become permanent? Chris Ip reported on what happened in 2020 and what we might see next year.
