What inspired you to develop it?
My business partner, Shahin Amirpour, came up with the original idea one day while snowboarding when he realized that there was a need to capture video content hands-free. I had a similar “a-ha” moment when my wife came to me and said, “If you could capture video of the kids without looking at them through the screen of your phone, it would be a game changer.” That’s when we knew we were really onto something.
Three years ago, we heard how scientists from Sweden’s KTH Royal Institute of Technology had created transparent wood – it could serve as a cheaper alternative to the silica-based glass currently used in windows and solar cells. Now, the material is additionally able to store heat and later release it.
In order to produce the initial version of the transparent wood, a KTH team led by Prof. Lars Berglund started by chemically removing light-absorbing lignin from natural balsa wood fibers – lignin is one component of wood cell walls.
If you’re training to be a concert violinist, you don’t want your technique to be merely “good enough.” A new computer system may soon be able to help, as it uses artificial intelligence (AI) to identify a user’s bow technique, and could perhaps even tell them how to improve their performance.
Things aren’t looking good for the big merger between Sprint and T-Mobile.
The Department of Justice antitrust enforcement has informed Sprint and T-Mobile that the merger is “unlikely” to receive approval, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Speaking to sources familiar with the merger, the report states that the $26 billion deal is concerns from the Justice Department’s antitrust division over threats the merger poses to competition. Sprint and T-Mobile are the third and fourth biggest mobile carriers in the country.
Further complicating matters, several U.S. states are considering taking legal action against the two companies if the DOJ decides not to challenge the merger.
The first report card of the year for the American economy is due on Friday. Hold tight.
Investors will be watching closely after worries about a global and US economic slowdown weighed on their minds at the start of the year.
The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta estimates 2.8% real GDP growth in January through March, while analysts polled by Refinitiv forecast an average of 1.9%. A weaker than expected GDP reading could pull stocks and other assets lower.
The story of decaf coffee starts, improbably, with Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
Goethe, who wrote the tragedy “Faust,” was one of Germany’s most famous authors, but he also dabbled in natural science. In 1819, Goethe saw the chemist Friedlieb Ferdinand Runge demonstrate how deadly nightshade extract could dilate a cat’s pupils. Impressed, Goethe gave Runge a small box of coffee beans from Greece and tasked the chemist with figuring out why the stuff kept him up at night.
