  2. Huami has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for the release of Amazfit ZenBuds TSW headphones, announced earlier at CES 2020. The original accessory is not used to listen to music at all - it is designed for people who have trouble sleeping. In just two days, the new product collected 10 times the amount required to start production. A special application for the headphones contains soothing melodies and sounds of nature, as well as instructions for performing breathing exercises that contribute to falling asleep. The novelty, according to the creators, is practically imperceptible when used due to the softness and flexibility of the design, as well as its low weight - 1.78 grams for each headphone. In addition, the Amazfit ZenBuds come with four sizes of elastic silicone earbuds that fit snugly against your ear and do not fall out overnight. The declared autonomy of the accessory on a single charge is up to 12 hours in standard mode, including up to three hours of listening to tunes, and up to 8 hours with continuous playback. Given the battery capacity of the complete case, this time increases to 56 hours. Amazfit ZenBuds also has an alarm function.

  3. In the wake of a new surge in popularity of the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077, which began after the broadcast of Night City Wire, Tencent announced the shooter SYN. This is also a fantastic action game in the scenery of cyberpunk but from Chinese developers. In addition to the announcement itself, the publisher shared with the public a video with a technical demonstration of the future news. As well as the hotly anticipated creation of the Polish Studio CD Projekt RED, the Chinese SYN will be a first-person action game, which will feature an open world controlled by powerful factions and a lot of opportunities for customization of characters. It is worth noting that the visual style of the brainchild of Tencent will be different from what awaits us in Cyberpunk 2077. So, the characters of the game, even if they do not flaunt hypertrophied proportions, still have external attributes that are inherent in Asian games and animated films rather than Western ones. Take the frighteningly large eyes and wild hair. By the way, to create the latter, a special system of strands is used, developed in collaboration with Epic Games, the owner of Unreal Engine. Yes, this is the engine that creates SYN. The Lightspeed & Quantum Studios team is responsible for its development. One of the features of the action will be the ability to have your own cybernetic pet with customizable appearance and abilities. The release date of the promising SYN, alas, is not yet reported. But it is known that the game will be released on PC and consoles.

  5. Google has modified the algorithm for issuing the results of its proprietary search engine. Now it will be even easier to get a response to your request — the company has launched a new useful feature that can provide users with the necessary information from the Internet even faster. Usually, when a request is made to Google, a quick response appears at the top of the search results page — a summary of data obtained from the site where the necessary information is published. These blocks are called highlighted descriptions and contain a link to the most popular page related to the search subject. After modifying the search engine, it will automatically highlight the key data corresponding to the query, right on the web page after the click. This allows you to quickly find the information you need without scrolling through the entire material. If the search was performed using Google Assistant, the virtual assistant can read the highlighted description aloud. It usually consists of a text fragment, list, step sequence, or table, contains data about a specific search object, and includes information such as the title of the material and URL links. According to Google, site owners do not need to take any additional actions for the new feature to work. If for some reason the search engine cannot select the desired content or the browser does not support the appropriate options, Google will simply open the page as usual. The updated search engine algorithm was available to some users at the end of May, and will soon be active in all regions.

  8. OPPO was among the first to show a prototype smartphone lacking any physical buttons on the case. However, the company is exploring various options for form factors. For example, one of the patents of a Chinese manufacturer describes a smartphone with a plug-in physical QWERTY keyboard. Smartphones with keyboards are not new, they existed 20 years ago. A striking example is the Nokia 9210. And although this type of typing still has fans, many have completely switched to on-screen typing. Therefore, OPPO has come up with a special case with a built-in QWERTY keyboard that can be used if necessary. According to the presented image, the case will allow you to turn your smartphone into a small laptop. The built-in physical keyboard can be useful for typing or business correspondence. There are no guarantees yet that OPPO will decide to make this idea a reality and release a similar case for one of its smartphones.
