In a mother’s womb were two babies. One asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?”The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.” “Nonsense,” said the first. “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?” The second said, “I don’t know, but there will be more light than here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths. Maybe we will have other senses that we can’t understand now.” The first replied, “That is absurd. Walking is impossible. And eating with our mouths? Ridiculous! The umbilical cord supplies nutrition and everything we need. But the umbilical cord is so short. Life after delivery is to be logically excluded.” The second insisted, “Well I think there is something and maybe it’s different than it is here. Maybe we won’t need this physical cord anymore.” The first replied, “Nonsense. And moreover, if there is life, then why has no one ever come back from there? Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery, there is nothing but darkness and silence and oblivion. It takes us nowhere.” “Well, I don’t know,” said the second, “but certainly we will meet Mother and she will take care of us.” The first replied “Mother? You actually believe in Mother? That’s laughable. If Mother exists then where is She now?” The second said, “She is all around us. We are surrounded by her. We are of Her. It is in Her that we live. Without Her, this world would not and could not exist.” Said the first: “Well I don’t see Her, so it is only logical that She doesn’t exist.” To which the second replied, “Sometimes, when you’re in silence and you focus and listen, you can perceive Her presence, and you can hear Her loving voice, calling down from above.” Maybe this was one of the best explanations of the concept of GOD.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsLast year, Vivo showed off the Vivo APEX 2018 concept and it featured a pop-up sliding camera and thinnest possible bezels. Back then, everyone was excited to see the concept materialize and surprisingly the brand managed to mass produce it within six months. The finished product was called the Vivo NEX. © Vivo Now after a year, Vivo has unveiled the APEX 2019 concept and it is even more amusing. Just today we saw Meizu's Zero that is completely holeless. The APE 2019 concept follows a similar line, but with more practicality. To start with, the phone has no buttons and completely relies on Touch Sense technology, it brings together capacitive touch and pressure-sensing. The software has been optimized to detect pressure or squeezing on the frame and can determine the pressure points location. Secondly, the usual USB port has been replaced by a MagPort. It is a magnetic power connector that enables both charging and data transfer and doesn't require a socket. Even the usual earpiece or speakers are gone and replaced by Body SoundCasting technology that turns the complete display into a speaker. © Vivo Last year we witnessed the mainstream adoption of the in-display fingerprint scanner. But, the scanner was limited to a specific area on the screen. With the APEX 2019 concept, Vivo is enabling the complete display to act as a scanner. This enables users to touch almost anywhere on the screen to unlock the device. Also, when you touch the display to unlock, the nearby screen pixels will light up for a faster and more accurate authentication. Lastly, the concept has 5G support thanks to the brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 platform. The phone shall come up with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal memory. Vivo is also bundling along its Jovi AI Assistant. This will be the company's first phone to run 5G. © Vivo Why did Vivo decide to remove many of the usual components like the USB port, buttons, and more? To make up space for the 5G modules. It also incorporates a Duplex PCB design to make 20 percent more space. The company has already announced it will be at MWC 2019 and visitors shall get a chance to experience the device first-hand. For now, this is a concept and there is no word on mass availability. Given Vivo's 2018 timelines, we expect the phone to be ready by the end of 2019 though.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsLast year, Samsung gave us a sneak peek at its upcoming foldable phone and everyone has been excited about the future of smartphones. We've already heard LG and Huawei working on similar technology and now Xiaomi is joining the battle as well. The company's president, Lin Bin, has now confirmed that the company is indeed working on a "double folding smartphone", and has shared a video showing it in action. Both sides of the phone can be folded back to transform it from a tablet into a more compact phone. We're confident the video shows a prototype in action since creases are easily visible. Considering the new form factor transformation, the device will be running an optimized version of MIUI that will instantly convert the UI for a seamless experience. The video shows the device can quickly change into a compact phone and sports glossy finish. Xiaomi's president revealed that they have employed a four-wheel drive foldable shaft technology and a foldable display to achieve the form factor. This may make this device the first one to sport a double folding mechanism. © Xiaomi The prototype visible in the video demonstrates only the folding functionality of the device and all other specifications remain unknown. In fact, there are no cameras or sensors visible on the prototype. The power button is located on the top, for now. The most important part of the video is how quickly the UI transforms to accommodate a new form factor. If any brand wants success with this concept, a seamless transition in the UI has to be a top priority. © YouTube / Samsung's Prototype One question continues to remain unanswered though, when will we see these prototypes production ready? Recent reports have indicated Samsung will be releasing a foldable phone by the end of this year. We expect Xiaomi too have a similar roadmap as well, considering they want to directly take on the South Korean giant. As far as prices are concerned, we've also heard that these devices are going to be extremely costly in the beginning. MWC 2019 is just a month away now and we look forward to seeing more of this in action there.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsWith many companies already flirting with the idea of developing self-driving/ self-flying cars, Aston Martin is the latest luxury car maker who has expressed interest in the concept. The company unveiled its plans to create a personal autonomous flying vehicle and bestowed the name “Volante Vision Concept.” © Aston Martin The concept car's design will probably get debuted at the Farnborough Air Show later this month and we can't wait to see it in real life. Much like other flying cars/vehicles, the Volante Vision will take off and land vertically. It will have a hybrid-electric powertrain and will be outfitted with multiple propellers. It will have a have a horizontal turbo-pop at the back and two pairs of propellers at the front so that the vehicle can tilt and rotate. © Aston Martin Aston Martin, as a company, is known for its supercars and luxury, and we can expect the company to incorporate some of those luxurious features into the Volante Vision. The flying vehicle will have autonomous navigation and every information will be displayed onto the glass cockpit. The Volante Vision will be crafted to serve the company's existing clientele, that is in search of a flying car with a luxurious touch. © Aston Martin The company is working with partners on the concept car with aviation experts, including Rolls-Royce. It seems like as each day passes, more and more companies are exploring and showing interest in the air taxi market. We can only know more about Volante Vision once Aston Martin makes more information available after its debut later this month. Source: Digital Trends
