Another attractive smartphone from OPPO, but we’re going to learn if beauty is more than skin deep.OPPO is well established in the smartphone market for making some unique, memorable and highly innovative smartphones.The brand has been responsible for the excelling Find range of flagships, the innovative N series of camera phones and more recently the ‘R’ series.OPPO has been kind enough to send over the R11s for me to test and review, but before we get to that we should take a look at this beauty in the flesh.While we tend to receive either the black, white or gold versions of phones to review I’m pretty happy that OPPO decided to give me the red version of this phone.The red version of the R11s is also the perfect variant to show off OPPO’s Starry sky screen design feature.
This battery has been developed by researchers from the State University of New York at Binghamton.Researchers from the State University of New York at Binghamton have developed a unique bio-battery that uses bacteria as a power source and can be stretched, twisted like a normal piece of fabric.The textile-based battery, as the researchers say, delivered stable electricity-generating capabilities when tested under multiple stretching and twisting cycles.They believe it could one day use human sweat to power wearable devices, offering a better alternative over conventional batteries."There is a clear and pressing need for flexible and stretchable electronics that can be easily integrated with a wide range of surroundings to collect real-time information," said Seokheun Choi, lead author study.The technology is sustainable, renewable, and eco-friendly and must work reliably when adopted to moving organs and parts, he added.
Samsung has patented smart clothing that is able to harvest energy for powering personal gadgets or embedded sensors.The patent details a shirt that contains this energy-harvesting technology, making it not just a shirt that could charge your gadgets, but one that could actually harvest the energy needed to do it.This is in contrast to previously unveiled “smart clothes,” which typically involve a battery that needs to be charged elsewhere.The patent was filed by Samsung Electronics and describes as “Wearable Electronic Device and Operating Method” involving an energy harvester that uses movement to generate energy.The patent includes a description of the processors, sensors, and other hardware comprising the system.Joining the description is an illustration showing what appears to be an ordinary long-sleeved shirt (above).

A team of researchers from the University of Houston is working with the oil industry to develop new ways to predict when an offshore drilling rig is at risk for a potentially catastrophic accident.Ramanan Krishnamoorti, chief energy officer at the University of Houston, will lead the project, drawing expertise from data scientists, petroleum engineers and geoscientists at the University.The project is one of six announced Thursday by the Gulf Research Program of the National Academies to develop new technologies, processes or procedures to improve the understanding and management of systemic risk in offshore oil and gas operations.The Deepwater Horizon explosion in 2010, which left 11 crew members dead and spilled more than 3 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, involved the uncontrolled buildup and release of gas, sparking efforts to better understand the movement of hydrocarbons in offshore drilling.Gas, water and even drilling fluid can flow up the drilling pipe alongside the desired oil, Krishnamoorti said.The gas can release in a burst or explosion upon reaching the surface, potentially causing a serious accident.
After months of teases, PlayerUnknown's Batteground's second map has finally been fully revealed.Called Miramar, the map is mainly covered in desert, which sits in stark contrast to the current lush forest island featured in the game.The map features a number of landmarks including a motorcycle death bowl, a colorful coastal town, and plenty of the shipping containers that players will know and love from the existing map.The new environment will be joined by a host of new weapons and vehicles including VW Camper Vans, jetskis, and the Win94 rifle (which appears not to be a long-lost Windows operating system.The new desert map has been a long time coming, but is finally due to arrive as the game finally reaches version 1.0 on PC, with an early access Xbox One release due on December 12.The inclusion of the new map is sure to be welcomed by the game's community, who have come to understand every inch of the game's existing massive map.
A new smart bike light promises to bring improved safety to cyclists and bike commuters who routinely find themselves out on the road after dark.The Binoreal F1 Radius recently launched on Indiegogo and it brings an array of impressive features designed to help riders be more visible, including automatically adjusting its brightness based on the speed they are traveling.The F1 Radius comes in two different models, both of which put off 200 lumens of light on their lowest setting.But, the smart light is also equipped with a set of onboard sensors and accelerometers that can automatically detect just how fast it is moving and adjust its brightness level accordingly.At high speeds, the level of illumination can climb to as much as 450 or 650 lumens, depending on which model of Radius the cyclist is using.As if dynamically adjusting brightness based on speed wasn’t enough, the F1 Radius has a few other tricks up its sleeve as well.
You can’t keep a good character down in Hollywood — even when that character has spent most of its existence as one of Marvel Comics’ most notorious villains — and a Venom movie based on the popular Spider-Man spinoff character is scheduled to hit theaters October 5, 2018.The first posters for the film were recently spotted in the wild, offering a nice reminder that production on the film continues to move along.The movie’s supporting cast members include Michelle Williams (Manchester by the Sea), Riz Ahmed (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), and Jenny Slate (Parks and Recreation).Some of the first promotional material for Venom appeared to have finally gone public in early December 2017, with Collider and Argentinian fan site MarvelFlix both posting photos from the Brazilian convention Comic Con Experience (CCXP) of promotional images for Venom posted at the Sony Pictures booth there.Primeras promo a de Venom me gusta el logo che pic.twitter.com/oMSzBYFfFd— MarvelFlix (@MarvelFlix) December 7, 2017

Disney is close to buying a bunch of assets from 21st Century Fox, according to CNBC.Such a deal could mean Disney ends up owning 30%-40% of the domestic box office, and 60% of Hulu.On Tuesday, CNBC reported that Disney was close to a deal to buy large chunks of 21st Century Fox.CNBC reported that Disney could pick up “Fox's Nat Geo, Star, regional sports networks, movie studios and stakes in Sky and Hulu, among other properties.” Disney would leave Fox’s news, broadcast network, and sports intact (except the regional sports networks).Disney would probably say that the DOJ should allow the deal to go through because Disney needs the new assets to stand against the vanguard of Silicon Valley giants invading Hollywood, from Netflix to Amazon to Facebook to Apple.It’s the same basic argument AT has made in favor of its proposed purchase of Time Warner, which owns properties like Turner, Warner Bros., and HBO.
