How to compare your sexual experience with others? The inventors have invented the first smart condom that can record your “skills” indicators in fun.
According to Bristish Condoms, this smart condom can measure hips, average skin temperatures as well as calculate the calories that the couple burns during “love” and record details. relational ability, including speed of thrust.
Although the device was previously mentioned in early 2017, the company recently released the first images.
The world’s first smart condom will be sold widely in early next year.
Radio Sputnik reported that the device was designed as a “nano-chip” equipped ring and sensor unit to record detailed “love” data. This bracelet helps a regular condom to be attached to the penis.
After synthesizing and analyzing data, this device sends them to users’ mobile phones via Bluetooth. Users can “share their information with friends, or even the world”.
John Simmons – British Condoms spokesman said: “This is really a step forward. We believe that pioneering a product not only brings new pleasures in the bedroom, but also helps detect the risk of sexually transmitted diseases as well as preventing condoms from sliding out – one of many causes of unwanted pregnancy.
According to the company, the device can detect chlamydia and twist syphilis.
By January 2018, the product was officially sold on the market, but British Condoms said nearly 900,000 people expressed interest in the product and pre-ordered it. The price of each product on the market is expected to fall to around $ 81 and a one-year warranty.
To increase the effect, the company also stressed that smart condoms could even glow.
The appearance of the device has caused netizens to express conflicting opinions, when there is an objectionable part and that this product can be used as a “spy condom”.
Create endless clean energy sources from graphene sheets
From a molecule once thought to be impossible, graphene has become a marvelous material in physics and promises to change the electronics industry in the future.
Graphene is a layer of carbon atoms that are bundled into a two-dimensional (2D) honeycomb network and a fundamental block for graphite-like materials despite the dimensionality. It can be encapsulated into 0D fullerenes, rolled into 1D carbon nanotubes or folded into graphite.
This phenomenon was discovered by a group of physicists led by researchers at the University of Arkansas. First, they have no intention of finding a new way to power electronic devices. Their purpose is much simpler – they just want to consider graphene’s movement.
We are all familiar with the black material made of carbon and called graphite. They are often combined with ceramic materials to form “lead” in the pencils that we use. The black stains made by pencils are actually pieces of carbon atoms stacked on top of each other and form a “thin wire mesh”. Because these carbon sheets are not sticking together, they easily slip through each other.
For years, scientists have looked at the ability to isolate single graphite plates, so can a two-dimensional carbon-thin steel grid stand on its own? In 2004, a physicist at Manchester University did this, he split the layers of a graphite lump from a thick atom.
In order to survive, 2D materials must perform a number of “scams”, which act as a 3D material to keep their state in a state of rigidity. And it turns out, graphene “holes” are random “bumps” due to the reciprocal movement of atoms. This causes 2D graphene sheet to have a third dimension. In other words, graphene can exist because they are not completely flat.
Generate energy from graphene.
To accurately measure the degree of fluctuation of graphene, physicist Paul Thibado led a group of graduate students to perform a simple experiment. They placed graphene sheets on the copper grid and observed the position changes of atoms using The Scanning Tunneling Microscope.
Although they can record the movement of atoms in graphene, this number is not suitable for any model they had expected before. The team was also unable to copy the data collected at this test to be applied the next time.
Researcher Thibado said: “We don’t seem to get anything useful. But I wonder if we ask a very simple question.”
Thinking like that, Mr. Thibado conducted the experiment in a different direction, studying the data collected from a new angle. “We split each image into smaller images and observe the patterns of graphene hidden in large areas. Each area of a single image, when viewed at different times, creates a pattern. more meaningful, “said Mr. Thibado.
The team quickly found that the inclination of graphene sheets was not the same as the shape of thin metal plates bent when twisted from both sides. Although graphene was previously observed in complex biological and climatic systems, this is the first time they have been seen on an atomic scale.
By measuring the speed and scale of graphene waves, researcher Thibado thinks we can turn it into an efficient source of energy. As long as graphene’s temperature also allows atoms to move around, it will continue to wiggle and bend. Placing the electrodes on the sides of the graphene parts is skewed, you will have a small change in voltage.
According to calculations by Thibado, a 10 micron piece of graphene can produce 10 microwatts of electricity. This number may not seem very impressive, but if you put more than 20,000 squares in a small area, you only need a small amount of graphene at room temperature, you can power a watch. hands running to … the end of the world! Another advantage is that it will energize bio-implant surgeries without using bulky batteries.
Currently, the team continues to work to check the effectiveness of the results. Mr. Thibado worked with US Navy Laboratory scientists to see if this idea could be applied into practice.
From a molecule once thought to be impossible, graphene has become a marvelous material in physics. It is being considered as a material with many potential applications and could lead to a new field of future electronic devices.
