Quite unexpected announcement of a new console from Microsoft. Here the Xbox X Series

Yesterday’s awards The Game Awards 2019 brought many exciting announcements, but one completely stole the whole show, and it comes with the trailer revealing the look of Microsoft’s next-gena.Lecturers The Game Awards 2019 announced for some time, they have a lot of news for us, but did not disclose the new Xbox nobody expected. Meanwhile, the event began with just such a strong accent, and although we have some doubts about the name of the new console, because it is not too catchy, it’s probably quickly cease to pay attention to it, like it was her code name, Project or Scarlett.Let’s get right to it, namely the design of the new Xbox, because really we have the opportunity to watch it the first time, and this is highly surprising. The console does not resemble its predecessor because neither competitor, because instead of a flattened “box” rather get kind of “tube” in a square. This means that the Xbox X-Series is much higher than you might expect (in my mind we can already see problems with it under TV) and more like some of compact PC solutions than the console. But we are considering its components should this at all surprising? Not at all, especially if we look at the power of the new console, which has been shown using material from Senua’s Saga II Hellblade filmed on the engine, which you can see above. Yes, by the way, we learned that recently purchased by Microsoft studio Ninja Theory, is preparing to continue his hit, which will be the occasion of the start of the new console title. I just look at the trailer to see that both the continuation Hellblade and Xbox X-Series, we have many good things to offer.In the case of the console it happens thanks to a new graphics architecture from AMD RDNA, as well as the “latest” processor family paired Zen 2 of 6 GB of RAM GDDR6. All this is to make the console will support ray tracing in real time gameplay and in the 4K resolution at 60 frames per second. Microsoft also mentions that the equipment will provide support to the resolution of 8K to 120 frames, although it seems a bit exaggerated announcement, corresponding technology for minimizing input lag and ultra-fast SSD of a new generation, which has virtually eliminated load times of games.What’s more, we do not have to worry about our current collection of games, because Microsoft promises backward compatibility with the thousands of production of the four-generation Xbox, and recalls that the compatibility also retain all the giant gaming accessories with the Xbox One, eg. The first generation falls Elite. Besides, we can count on the transfer of records between the states game consoles, and the console will still have the physical drive, so it probably is not the moment in which the industry moves to digital editions. At the end of yet another important message, namely the release date, although this could not look different … end of next year.

Hyperloop car in Las Vegas already has 1,200 meters in length

The company Boring Company, owned by Elon Musk, announced the acceleration of works related to the construction of the world’s first commercial system Loop, which will allow for fast, underground transportation vehicles.Corporation in May last year received approval and huge funds for the construction of the future transport system called Loop in Las Vegas. The authorities recognized the huge potential in this form of transport after the first test system in Los Angeles. We remind you that it is in the City of Angels was built 2-kilometer stretch of experimental.Gambling City authorities want to take advantage of the benefits flowing from the Loop system to communicate with each other the most important part of the city. Two tunnels leading in both directions, they have a length of 1600 meters with three stations and street casinos and connect the airport to the convention center. The choice was not accidental, the center is part of the Tourism Agency Las Vegas and visited by over a million people a year.Company Elon Musk announced that it now already built 1,200 meters of tunnels 3600 meters. Loop system is to be put into use at the beginning of 2021 but all indications are that it can be done quickly, because even in the autumn of this year.The authorities wish to Las Vegas in tunnels advantage of special vehicles Loop, which can carry on its board to 16 people and a platform for cars. Loop has a target to carry 4,400 passengers per hour. The cost of building the entire infrastructure of the future, travel will cost 50 million US dollars and become the showcase of the city not only in the United States, but also worldwide.Elon Musk is confident that such a network of underground tunnels will eliminate the problem of traffic jams in metropolitan areas. For now willing to test-the first one, which has a length of approx. 2 kilometers and is located in Los Angeles. Apparently the length of the tunnel does not allow to communicate efficiently distant parts of the metropolis, but we must remember that the project is still in the experimental phase. All volunteers can ride inside a tunnel full electric Model X and not waste time standing in traffic between the freeway and the streets 105 Hawthorne Municipal Airport. Loop system performs perfectly. The car is undertaken by a special lift from the street, and then lowered inside a tunnel with a diameter of 3.4 meters. Once you find a tunnel, the wheels are attached special bumpers / stabilizers with wheels. The car is moving so far in the tunnel between the seat SpaceX station and O’Leary, a speed of approx. 60 km / h (soon to be 130 km / h, and the target 240 km / h).Boring Company The Company already has an order for the construction of Loop system not only from the authorities of the City of Los Angeles, but also in Chicago. In both cases, the underground tunnels will connect the city center with international airports and to be the fastest and cheapest form of transport for residents. Musk wants to pass the price does not exceed $ 1.

Samsung has created an application through which we learn about what data we collect SmartTV

Consumers are becoming more aware of their rights regarding the collection of data, the Korean company instead of hiding your head in the sand, coming out to meet them … at least a bit. Samsung used CES 2020 to present not only their new TVs for the current year, but interesting software, and specifically accompanying the company’s SmartTV application Privacy Choices. As it turns out, smart TVs have gone in recent years has really come a long way and now no major problems effectively profiles of their users and keep track of their activity, so customers need tools with which they will be able to manage all this.And here comes into play precisely Privacy Choices, which is an application in which you can easily preview what data has been collected about the user based on his preferences in the selection of materials and decide whether they are true. It is true that Samsung was not yet ready to present the application in action on one of their TVs, but assured that the software will soon be available to all. But it is actually the application will have any greater significance?It is difficult to assess, because we have not met all the details yet, but as long as it will serve only insight into the data, not their real control, or the removal or modification, in the field of digital privacy little will change. In short, we can see our actual habits of television, but they will also be a mystery to giants such as Netflix, Amazon or Spotify, whose services we use on our TV or other devices. I do not think that’s what it’s all about, but let’s wait … maybe Samsung will surprise us even when betray all the details.
