- Apple has started a new pilot project in one of the hospitals in Los Angeles, where each patient will be provided with an iPad to track the treatment progress and also keep the record of past surgeries in digital format. The transition to an iPad will help doctors in eliminating the risk of miscommunication and loss of documents. Patients on the other hand will also get access to notes and educational videos on demand.
- Gaming Company Atari has revealed the much awaited first look of its newest gaming console, the ‘Ataribox’. A 21 sec teaser video of the console was released last month by the company. The new Ataribox will include both classic and new games. There will be 2 editions of the console- a wood edition and a black-and-red edition. The gaming console will have 4 USB ports, 1 HDMI port and 1 SD port. Atari said that more details on specs, games, features, price, and release date will be provided very soon.
- A tiny gadget named ‘Nut mini Tracker’ has been launched that can attach itself to all physical valuables and alerts the user whenever something is located or left behind. Users can even use it backwards and get an alert on the device if their phone goes missing. This new mini gadget can be attached to anything from keys, wallets to even bag pack. The ultra lightweight gadget is connected through a smart phone app that is available on play store.
- Tech giant Yara has launched a new device called ‘PIECE’ to make single Sim iphones into dual Sim handsets. PIECE uses Bluetooth technology to connect the second Sim and an app to perform every function including phone calls. PIECE can fit into the pockets or even regular wallets, making it easier to carry around. This miniature device can also hold any GSM, EGSM, DCS, or PCS card. This new device will be helpful for users who are forced to carry two phones all the time.
- The Aerospace Exploration Agency of Japan has released images and video from its JEM Internal Ball Camera, also known as ‘Int-Ball’. The 3D-printed device is basically a camera drone that can record images and video while moving in space. The device was delivered to the International Space Station on June 4, 2017. It gives scientists the ability to capture images and video, via a robot that can move autonomously around in space.
