Despite the rapid development of technology, we still heavily rely in everyday life from wires, even for data transmission. Although at hand and there is a wide range of wireless capabilities, their performance is often significantly inferior to wired technologies. All this may soon change thanks to the start-up Keyssa, which has aimed to get rid of a greater number of wires. The decision of the firm, which he calls “kiss connectivity” (i.e., literally the connection through a kiss), is based on the use of high-frequency radio waves to transfer data from one gadget to another. It is assumed that using technology full film in HD can be transferred within a few seconds. Not only can it change the concept of data transmission, but also will affect the design of gadgets. For example, under such conditions there will be no need in the ports, and device manufacturers will be able to do sealed, fully secure enclosure.
It should be noted that Keyssa is not just a team of dreamers-minded, and the firm, which has enlisted support from Intel and Samsung, as well as the “father of the iPod” Tony Fadell. It is assumed that the first gadgets with technology support will go on sale next year, but it is unclear exactly which device it can be.
3D printers appeared not so long ago, but by the standards of technology, there are already quite a while. However, new solutions appear in this rather niche product category. One of them is a modular printer FLUX, which the manufacturer calls the world’s first such device.
The gadget is a curious fact that due to the modularity extends its functionality. FLUX can also act as a 3D scanner, and as a machine for engraving. Built-in 3D scanner lets users quickly and easily simulate objects for printing. This special software is not necessary. For engraving module is used with the head, giving a laser beam with a power of 200 milliwatts.
Additional modules allow you to decorate ceramics and food, and also burn wood. Outdoor unit developer kit allows third-party developers to create their own modules. The printer is going for 20 minutes and controlled by a smartphone or tablet computer with the appropriate application.
