Are Electric Cars Really Better For the Environment?

Are Electric Cars Really Better For the Environment?

Technology
Electric cars are fast approaching! Thanks to batteries, cars can be refueled with electricity instead of gasoline. Fossil fuels such as petrol and diesel are, as you know, is bad for the environment as they emit carbon dioxide. In addition, the oil will run out within a couple of decades. These are problems that we humans face. Electric cars are highlighted as one of the solutions to climate problems. But are electric cars really better for the environment? If it is such a simple solution that many seem to think, why doesn't everyone just go and get an electric car? Some say they do not want to buy an electric car because it is expensive to buy. Then they may not think that the operating cost is much lower. Electric cars are much cheaper to refuel and you save on expensive petrol mo...

How to Protect your Electronics

Technology
Technical gadgets and especially electronics have become increasingly advanced and many times increasingly fragile. Many mobiles nowadays have a shell that consists largely of glass on both the front and the back. This means that the units can be made very thin and feel very well-made, but unfortunately, it also increases the risk of them breaking. Fortunately, there are many solutions out there today that both protect the units and give them a new and often more interesting style. Protective case The case is a perfect way to protect your mobile from the cases and dropping it will undoubtedly happen during its lifetime. Like many other iPhone accessories, there is a large selection online. The choices are virtually endless and the degree of protection varies from basic fashion cases w...
This is When you Should Buy Solar Sells

This is When you Should Buy Solar Sells

Technology
In recent years, interest in solar panels has skyrocketed and they are showing up a bit here and there, for example at the furniture company Ikea. Solar panels have also been given simplified building rules when it comes to roof installations, which has made the technology more attractive to ordinary people. Until today, however, it is not simply for ordinary people. But how can you know whether it is economically justifiable to install panels, if so how many, given the uncertainty factors that exist? This is what Nelson Sommerfeldt, PhD student at the Department of Energy Technology at KTH, has now developed a solution for. -The method they developed is relevant for anyone who owns a building, is interested in solar cells but who are not experts in investments in energy technology. ...
What is a Web Application?

What is a Web Application?

Technology
When you hear the word application or app, it is easy to think that it is a program that is downloaded from the App Store or Google play to a mobile or tablet. But an application means more than that. In short, it can be said that an application is a type of program that the user can interact with and which often has some underlying system running in the background. One challenge with developing apps is that they must be adapted to each individual operating system and version. For example, if the app is to work on iPhone (iOS), Android, PC (Windows) and Mac (Mac OS), a unique instance may be required for all these systems. This means a longer development time and at the same time requires a higher maintenance to support all future updates of each operating system. What many companies...
4 Tips if You Are are Thinking About a Web shop

4 Tips if You Are are Thinking About a Web shop

Other
As a product retailer today, your products are required to be available in a simple and easy way to meet consumer expectations and needs. Oftentimes, this means creating a webshop. In the market, there are a plethora of so-called “out-of-the-box” solutions, where you are offered a ready-made shell for a webshop where you can put your own products in, and voilá, you have a viable webshop. These solutions often have a fairly generic appearance and easily become quite impersonal. The alternative to this is to develop a customized webshop with an external party. This may sound both expensive and very time consuming but is it really true? When you start to do a bit of it and analyze what you actually get out of a standard solution versus an in-house developed solution, the answer is not as o
Mercedes Electric Car EQS Beats Everyone’s Fingers

Mercedes Electric Car EQS Beats Everyone’s Fingers

Innovation
Vision EQS is certainly a concept, but the promised range of 700 km can give Mercedes a whole new position. The electric car can be charged to 80 percent in less than 20 minutes. With 469 hp, 0-100 km / h is cut in 4.5 seconds. To become a leader in the electrified segment, Mercedes will invest € 11 billion over the next few years. But when the manufacturer launched its first electric suv 2018, EQC made many disappointed. Among them were Ny Teknik's reporter who thought the model was reasonable and lacked a performance that could challenge Tesla. But now Mercedes shows where the cabinet should stand. At the Frankfurt fair, the supercar Vision EQS was unveiled - and if the concept reflects what the manufacturer has in the coat sleeve, Daimler moves forward its positions vis-à-vis its

Their Technology Makes The Entire Windshield a Display

Innovation
Soon Chinese Futurus will showcase the solution that makes the windscreen an annual display. The driver is supported by graphics in the field of view, and the rear seat passengers can also see entertainment in the box. Now the car industry is taking the step from heads up displays, which, for example, show the prevailing speed limit, to the driver in the field of view backed by augmented reality, thus augmented reality. Chinese Futurus presents a concept where the entire windshield has been transformed into a huge scar display. The Beijing-based company says it has the solution ready to implement the project itself and promises that they will showcase the technology at the CES Technology Fair in Las Vegas in January. The field of view is up to 60 degrees with a resolution of 80 pi...

BMW’s Concept 4 – Which Will Be The New Electric Car i4

Innovation
A concept is a concept. But BMW is clear that the vehicle presented in Frankfurt will eventually form the basis of the upcoming electric car i4. BMW will have five electric cars in the program by 2021 and one of them will be i4. Exactly how it will look we do not yet know, but at the Frankfurt salon one premiered a concept vehicle which according to new CEO Oliver Zipse is the "start" of what will be i4 that will start production in 2021. The vehicle is called Concept 4 and will also form the basis of the upcoming 4 Series. The daring design with long wheelbase and short overhangs up there has received mixed reception and it hurts to see which elements BMW chooses to keep or alternate tone down. One million sold electric vehicles in 2023 BMW's goal is to have sold one million elect...
Google Confirms Breakthrough of Quantum Supremacy

Google Confirms Breakthrough of Quantum Supremacy

Innovation
Researchers affiliated with the company Google have performed the first truly advanced quantum calculation. In the journal Nature, they demonstrate a calculation that took 200 seconds, but which for a "regular" supercomputer had taken 10,000 years to perform. This is, according to Nature magazine, the first time quantum supremacy has been shown, that is, when a quantum computer has proven to be far superior to an ordinary supercomputer. For according to the research that is now presented, the researchers have managed to perform such a "superior" calculation. Admittedly, the quantum computer took just over three minutes or 200 seconds, but for a regular supercomputer it would have taken 10,000 years to complete.
