Despite the fact that it is difficult to surprise a modern person, there is a place for the unusual in our world. It finds a place in many industries and areas of its activity. The world of electronic devices and gadgets is no exception. This review contains information about the latest developments of engineers and specialists from several companies, which, if not surprising, will definitely arouse the interest of readers.
A line of original PC cases
AeroCool Advanced Technologies is known for its products, most of which are computer peripherals. She recently announced the start of sales in USA of a line of cases for personal computers. A total of ten models were presented. Even the fastidious user will be able to find here the configuration he needs to his taste.
All of them are united by the presence of a front mesh panel that provides good air flow to cool the contents of the system unit and a transparent side panel. It is made of tempered glass.
In addition to the practicality of the design, it is worth noting its aesthetic component. This arrangement allows you to contemplate the insides of the device, the illumination of its components. Many will enjoy this spectacle due to the abundance of saturated colors.
One of the models is Aero One Frost. This case is well suited for productive filling, which generates a lot of heat during operation. Its drainage is aided by the presence of three 120mm fixed RGB fans located in the front panel area. In the back of the "system unit" there is another cooler that increases the efficiency of the cooling system.
Another modification - Aero One Eclipse, is made according to the same scheme, but it also received a hub with six ports, allowing you to connect additional fans or other devices.
Three compact versions of the cases: Aero One Mini, One Mini Frost and One Mini Eclipse are designed to equip PCs with Micro ATX / mini-ITX motherboards. Each of them has its own design features, they are all equipped with a powerful cooling system.
The AeroCool NightHawk and AeroCool AirHawk models should be noted separately. Their structure is two-piece, which increases the ability to remove excess heat. The design of these two devices has its own differences. The manufacturer describes it as "space".
The cost of system units is within 3400-5800 rubles, which is not expensive by modern standards.
USB Smart Drive
Thanks to the efforts of Kanguru engineers, a smart USB flash drive Defender Bio-Elite30 has been developed with a fingerprint scanner and its own Agnostic operating system.
Agnostic encrypts all files as well as user biometrics. To do this, there is a fingerprint scanner at the end of the flash drive. This allows you to restrict access to data located on the drive. To do this, the user just needs to insert it into the USB port of the gadget and make the necessary initial settings.
The manufacturer claims that it is compatible with Windows and macOS Defender Bio-Elite30, can be used in medical equipment, smart TVs and ATMs. It provides 256-bit encryption and can store multiple users' fingerprints in its memory.
Additional data security is provided by several utilities installed in the memory of the flash drive.
Several versions of this device will be available for sale. They will differ from each other in the presence of memory of different sizes: from 16 to 64 GB and the speed of recording files. It is installed in the range of 20-85 MB / s.
No sales start date and pricing for the smart USB drive has been announced yet.
Blockchain Nike Shoes
Nike has already unveiled its voice-activated footwear with cushioning technology and self-tie technology.
However, the company's engineers did not stop there. They recently filed a patent for the development of the CryptoKicks blockchain sneaker.
This document contains a description of a system that allows the use of blockchain technology to fix cryptographic digital information with a certain degree of protection on a physical product.
At the initial stage, only the company's sneakers will be equipped with such technology. This will allow you to track any pair of shoes that will be "tied" to a specific wearer. The program will also allow you to quickly establish the authenticity of the product.
As intended by the developers, everything should work according to a certain scheme. During the sale of each pair of CryptoKicks, all users will receive a cryptographic token. It attaches to the unique identifier of a specific pair of shoes. In case of resale of sneakers, along with them must change the owner and the token. His data is stored in a crypto storage specially developed for this.
It is not yet clear whether the idea of Nike engineers will be implemented. There are plenty of examples when all patent applications remained on paper.
