Focus Description:

Take a newspaper and show the audience how easy it is to tear off even strips from it. Invite the audience to try it too. Even help them - make a tear in the newspaper, and let them continue to tear it in the same place. Their gaps will be completely uneven, although every time you get them perfectly even again.

Focus secret:

Before starting to show the focus, carefully inspect the edges of the newspaper. You should always start tearing from the zigzag edge of the newspaper, and force the audience to tear from the flat edge.

Focus Break test

Paper is made from tiny fibers of wood that are wet-laid onto a conveyor belt to dry. As the belt moves, the fibers are pulled out and straightened. If you tear the paper along the fibers, the tear is even and straight, but if you tear it across the fibers, the tear line is deflected by the fibers to the side.

Improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells 14.06.2024

The latest solar technology research represents a significant breakthrough in improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells. This method, based on the use of pulsed light, offers promise for simplifying the production and expanding the applications of these cells. A research team from the Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology has developed an innovative method that uses pulsed light to improve the electrical conductivity of PbS solar cells. This method can significantly reduce the processing time required to achieve similar results. PbS quantum dot solar cells have significant potential in solar technology due to their photovoltaic properties. However, the formation of defects on their surface can reduce their performance. The new method helps suppress defect formation and improve electrical conductivity. Using strong light to complete the process ... >>

Magnetic Power Bank 5000mAh 14.06.2024

Huawei introduces a convenient and multifunctional charger to the market - Huawei SuperCharge All-in-One Magnetic Power Bank. This magnetic battery allows you to quickly and conveniently charge your Huawei phone anywhere, anytime.

The battery is compatible with various fast charging protocols such as SCP, UFCS and PD, making it ideal for a wide range of devices. The power bank is also compatible with Huawei phones that support wireless charging. ... >>

Changes in a father's brain after the birth of a child 13.06.2024

A recent study conducted by scientists from the Hefei Institute of Physical Sciences of the Chinese Academy of Sciences found interesting changes in the brains of men after becoming fathers. These changes were associated with involvement in child care, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Scientists found that men who became fathers experienced a loss of brain volume after giving birth. This volume loss was associated with greater involvement in parenting, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Researchers have found significant changes in men's brains between the prenatal and postnatal periods. In particular, there was a loss of gray matter volume, especially in parts of the brain responsible for higher functions such as language, memory, problem solving and decision making. Men who paid more attention to their children and spent more time with them lost more gray matter in their brains. This also affected their mental health ... >>

Toshiba processor for wearable electronics 05.04.2014

Toshiba, like some other companies, licenses cores from ARM Holdings. Thanks to this, she quickly manages to bring ready-made solutions to the market. Now Toshiba is also tackling the popular wearables segment by releasing branded SoCs based on 48MHz ARM Cortex-M4F cores.

In fact, this is a microcontroller, but Toshiba called the new product an application processor. The latest expansion of the proprietary line of solutions manufactured under the ApP Lite brand is the new SoC TZ1001MBG.

The company intends to create wearable devices based on new SoCs to improve the quality of life. Such devices, equipped with a certain set of sensors, will help a person to avoid possible health problems, promoting proper nutrition and exercise, as well as allowing them to adjust daily life in such a way as to minimize the possibility of occupational and other common diseases.

The Toshiba application processor includes an accelerometer, a Bluetooth LE wireless module, and flash memory for data storage. The SoC also includes a high-precision ADC capable of digitizing the cardiogram and other analog signals from sensors. A modification of the processor is also expected, including a magnetometer and a gyroscope.

Samples of the new Toshiba processors will begin distributing in May, and their mass production is scheduled to begin in September.
