Forskare på amerikanska Georgia Tech samt Emory University har utvecklat det här smarta trappsystemet som man säger ska spara energi för de som vill gå upp och ner för trappan.Trappsystemet är framför allt tänkt att användas av äldre och rörelsehindrade som kan ha problem med att ta sig upp och ner för traditionella trappor.Enligt forskarna så minskade belastningen på en persons fotleder med 26 procent när de gick nerför i trappan och 37 procent mindre belastning på en persons knä när de gick upp för trappan.En av forskarna bakom trappsystemet säger:"Walking down stairs is like tapping the brakes of your car while revving the engine.Your legs use a lot of energy bracing each step to avoid falling too fast.

Earlier this month, Finnish company HMD Global (who snagged the exclusive rights to make Nokia branded phones), announced that they had formed an exclusive partnership with optical systems maker Zeiss to put their lenses inside new Nokia phones.Reports from WinFuture and VentureBeat seem to confirm the existence of the Nokia 8 smartphone.The Nokia 8 would be released July 31 sporting a 13-megapixel shooter with Carl Zeiss optics.Spec-wise, it seems to shoot for the high-end market with a 5.3-inch display (2560 x 1440), a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB or 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and dual-SIM models.Unlike current high-end phones from Samsung and LG, the Nokia 8 seems to eschew the current design trend of minimalist bezels and buttonless front panels in favor of larger bezels and a physical home button.According to WinFuture, it will probably run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out the box and come in at least three or four color variants: blue (as pictured below), gold, and "steel".

Premier Global, a leading education provider for health and fitness professionals, has unveiled its new positioning, idea, visual and verbal identity, fashioned by brand consultancy The Clearing.The Clearing’s brief involved articulating a clear promise for the Premier Global brand and redesigning the brand experience to help it stand out as a 'beacon for quality'.Despite leading the field in personal training for over 20 years, the brand had been neglected, looked tired and lacked vision, due to the UK fitness industry suffering a crisis of quantity over quality, flooding the market with inexperienced and poorly-educated trainers.The brand consultancy located Premier Global's two main strengths: The partnership with The National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), the leading personal training authority in the US, which brought an edge of scientific evidence-based content, and the quality of personal training which was unparalleled.They then renamed the tutors delivering this as ‘master coaches’.The agency developed the brand promise – ‘Outperform’ – to appeal to over-achievers with a burning desire to transform other people’s lives for the better.

The first high-end smartphone from HMD Global, the Finnish group making smartphones under the Nokia brand, will be called the Nokia 8, according to new reports from VentureBeat’s Evan Blass and tech blog WinFuture.Blass, who is well-known in tech circles for accurately leaking products, tweeted a picture of the alleged device on Monday.Both VentureBeat and WinFuture tip the Nokia 8 to launch on July 31.It’s not yet clear where exactly the phone will be available.The reports suggest it’ll cost close to €600, though that may vary by region.Here’s a rundown of what to expect from the device, according to the reports:

It looks like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be announced at the end of August, as the head of Samsung’s mobile division, Dongjin Koh, has reportedly said as much.The comments were made to ePrice, and although no exact announcement date was given we had previously heard rumors that the Note 8 would land on August 23 – a date which lines up with this news.That’s not when you’ll actually be able to buy the phone though, as Koh added that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 would go on sale in the first wave of countries in early September, while the rest of the world would get it in October.He didn’t say which countries would be part of the first wave, but along with Samsung’s home market of South Korea we wouldn’t be surprised if the US and UK were included, as they’re likely to be major markets for the phone.So you might be able to have a Note 8 in your hands in less than two months, and it should be worth the wait, with rumors pointing to a massive 6.4-inch screen, a dual-lens camera and lots of power.We’ve also recently had our best look yet at the almost bezel-free phone and in the coming weeks we’re sure to see and hear a lot more, so keep your eyes on TechRadar for updates.

Frampton has four children; three with his first wife - a 15 year old girl, 13 year old twins, a boy and girl.When I first became a dad 15 years ago, it was all about Gina Ford and sleep training.I think you become a better leader by being a better father and you become a better father by being a good leader.They are task, not people focused.It’s something I didn’t do when I was younger, so in my first marriage, when we had kids, it became hard.My wife's world was focused on them, but my world was expanding with work, international travel and everything.

Ranskan presidentti Emmanuel Macron uskoo, että Yhdysvaltain presidentti Donald Trump saattaa muuttaa mielensä Pariisin ilmastosopimuksen suhteen.Trump päätti kesäkuussa vetää Yhdysvallat pois sopimuksesta."Keskustelimme yksityiskohdista, jotka voisivat saada hänet palaamaan Pariisin sopimuksen piiriin.On tärkeää ylläpitää keskustelua Yhdysvaltojen mahdollisesta paluusta", Trumpin tavannut Macron sanoo uutistoimisto Bloombergin mukaan.Trump itse sanoi tiedotustilaisuudessa Ranskassa, että ”jotakin voi tapahtua”.Jos näin käy, että Yhdysvallat palaa sopimukseen, se olisi mahtavaa, jos ei, niin sekin on OK."

Streaming media company Roku is getting ready to go public before the end of the year – and it might even file in the next few weeks.That’s according to the Wall Street Journal, which cites “people familiar with the company’s plans”.The Wall Street Journal says Roku has hired Morgan Stanley, Citigroup and Allen & Co. as underwriters and it is seeking a valuation of $1bn.However, the Wall Street Journal pointed to the lackluster debuts of both Blue Apron and Snapchat this year, which could indicate Roku might be somewhat optimistic with that figure.The Wall Street Journal also says Roku will likely pitch itself as the future of television as consumers cut cords in increasing numbers and Roku itself has pivoted from generating revenue from hardware to more of an ad-based and revenue-sharing model for streaming services with content from players like Netflix, Amazon and Hulu.Earlier this week, Roku announced it had 15m monthly active accounts as of June 30 and had grown 43% from the same period in 2016.

Samsung's official Exynos account on Twitter sent today out a tweet about the Exynos 8895, Samsung's currently the best performing systemchipp that sits in both the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.Tweeten, in itself, is pretty bland, Exynos 8895 has been known a long time, but what is interesting is the picture they chose to attach to the tweeten.the Image contains a rendering of a phone that looks like we expect that the Note 8 should look like.Just like the Galaxy Note 7 appears to Samsung, if it really is a rendering of the Note 8, have chosen to do långsidornas kurvning of the screen less noticeable, which we appreciate, but we can also see that the phone in the picture has significantly less dead area above the screen, which is totally in line with Samsung's S8-duo.Is this the upcoming phableten Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which will be presented officially on 23 August?the Internet seems to believe it, and we are inclined to agree with.

Researchers have long thought about storing data in DNA and, so far, it seems to be working.They’ve already stuffed a book into DNA and Microsoft is experimenting with a process to store larger amounts of data – just imagine trying to defragment a DNA hard drive.Now, after years of research, a group at Harvard have successfully stored a short movie in E.coli DNA.The system works because the E.coli has a tendency to capture and file away attacking viruses.A section of the bacteria called CRISPR (clustered, regularly interspaced, short palindromic repeats) cuts out genetic slices if invading viruses and stores them away, creating a record of attacks in chronological order.The team cut a small 36 by 26 pixel animated GIF into parts and encoded it in DNA to look like virus fragments.

But not all on-site SEO issues are so obvious.Likewise, CoSchedule analyzed 1 million headlines and found that list posts were by far the most likely to get shared.Harry Potter may use an invisibility cloak for good, but as far as search engines are concerned, cloaking is inherently evil.Google explicitly forbids cloaking, defining it as follows:“…the practice of presenting different content or URLs to human users and search engines…”It should be obvious why.

With days getting hotter, the pubs becoming more appealing and summer holidays last approaching, most would forgive you for missing a few of the telecoms stories from last week.Samsung and Alibaba eye smart home euphoriaTwo of Asia’s largest technology brands are reportedly on the hunt to cash in on the fast-growing excitement around the smart home, with the launch of AI-powered smart speakers.Alibaba has officially launched Tmall Genie, a voice-controlled device play music, run third-party apps and buy goods from the Chinese retail giant’s online stores.For the moment, it only understands Mandarin, though it should hardly be considered unusual for Chinese brands to target the Chinese market first and foremost.The product is only available in Beta for a limited number of customers currently, though the team has stated it will also feature Alipay, which is pretty much its own various of PayPal.
