Ataribox-classic

As we all know, Atari was one of the largest producers and pioneer of arcade games, home video games, consoles and personal microcomputers in the United States. It maintained its potential and leadership in the computer industry and the entertainment from its beginnings until the middle of the decade of the 80.

Since his announcement at Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) where he announced his return to the world of videogame consoles with a new product which was named Ataribox, fans of the company have been intrigued by the new console and all the details that would bring both in your hardware as in your software.

After Atari unveils images of his new product in an exclusive release where they explain the details of the Ataribox, he made a statement later on 25 September, revealing for the first time that the device will be able to run Linux on an Advanced processor Micro Devices and will cost between 250 and 300 dollars.

In an exclusive interview last week with GamesBeat, creator of Ataribox and general manager Feargal Mac said Atari will start a crowdfunding campaign in Indiegogo this fall and will launch the Ataribox in the spring of 2018 with a great backing of classic games editor.

The company also revealed that the console will have a custom AMD processor with Radeon graphics and will run Linux as an operating system, with a user friendly interface at the top easier to use for a TV interface and controller.

Mac, the company’s general manager, said the new console will run the kind of games a mid-range PC can do today, but will not be able to run Triple-A games that require high-end PC performance. You will also be able to stream, run applications, browse the web and play music.

Atari will discuss details about the content of the new console and partnerships with other companies for this project in future interviews or conferences.

Every day we witness the evolution of the technological world through new discoveries or creations that aim to improve the quality of life of people, provide security and ensure our integrity, facilitate us performing different activities, help us solve our problems more common, among others.

However, the advancement of technology also demands changes in many aspects of collective life; that is, changes in the political, economic and social sphere of a group of people, in other words, a society, country, continent, etc. But in this article we will focus on a more specific point.

The means of transport are very important in our daily life as they help us move from one place to another. We already know what our means of transport are so we do not need to mention them. Currently, buses are the most requested terrestrial means of transport for long distance travel.

Therefore, it is no exception for the technology to pay attention. The big automotive companies have improved their vehicles over time to adapt to the new generations and have revolutionized their own market with extravagant innovations.

One such innovation is electric vehicles; ie vehicles that replace fuel for electricity. Although it is this innovation is very environmentally friendly, it is limited with respect to the distance and time in which an electric vehicle can travel.

But returning to the subject of this article, cities and countries are about to put bans on internal combustion engines in a couple of decades, that’s why electric bus technology is advancing and the company that owns the first place for its advances in this environment is Proterra.

On Tuesday, the California-based company said its E2 Max Catalyst reached 1,102.2 miles on a single charge, a world record for the longest distance traveled by an electric vehicle without recharging. The company Navistar confirms the results obtained by Proterra since the demonstration was realized in its test grounds.

Proterra is advancing rapidly in the emerging category of electric battery transit. The company notes that they have built the Catalyst from the ground exclusively as an EV, with a durable body that extends for life and also that they have developed an advanced and modular battery storage and have tied it to a proven electric transmission system and state-of-the-art power supply systems.

The result is a vehicle that is defining the future of clean and quiet transportation with:
· 0 to 20 mph acceleration in 6.8 seconds
· The ability to take steep slopes with a slope of 15.5%
· 26,000-33,000 lbs. Light weight, the lightest vehicle in its class

Proterra’s high-performance transmission system maximizes power and efficiency to meet the challenges of continuous revenue service. It consists of only two moving parts, a 220kW peak-mounted permanent magnet motor and 2-speed auto-shift EV transmission, and does not require oil or other liquids.

Catalytic vehicles are also equipped with regenerative braking. When the driver takes a foot off the accelerator, the vehicle slows down and the engine runs in reverse, directing the power to the batteries to charge. Brake maintenance is reduced because the drivers drive the brake pedal much less, which significantly prolongs the life of the braking system parts. With conventional bus drum brakes, parts must be replaced every 20,000 miles. With regenerative braking, the parts can potentially last 100,000 miles or more, further reducing maintenance costs over the life of the vehicle.

At Proterra, “Safety First” is more than just a slogan. Proterra vehicles are designed with passenger safety as their main concern. For example, battery packs are in the safest possible location outside the passenger compartment. The batteries are liquid at controlled temperature and incorporate active and passive safety systems, with robust and reinforced batteries that are separated from the passengers by a sturdy structural barrier.

The Catalyst bus body is constructed of carbon fiber reinforced impact-absorbing composite materials and is equipped with Mobileye’s collision avoidance technology, providing collision avoidance and mitigation by alerting drivers to potential incidents before happen.

An advanced electric propeller offers optimum energy efficiency at a lower operating cost than fossil fuel combustion engines. And the carbon-reinforced composite body resists impact and corrosion, while providing a significantly longer life than conventional transit vehicles.

The Proterra Catalyst zero emission and electric battery bus is built on a platform designed to provide flexibility and durability. The highly efficient batteries offer reliable power with modularity to fit a number of urban and regional routes.

Apple-celebra-con-nuevas-presentaciones

As we well know, the progress of technology continues to progress, thanks to the great competition of large electronics companies to obtain the highest level in their environment; that is, for being the best and most welcomed by all of us.

To achieve these achievements, they need to create or upgrade new devices that, of course, are functional, useful and safe for all users. This fact is achieved on a large scale annually where large companies demonstrate, announce and present their new devices in a definitive date of celebration in the last months of the year.

One of these big companies has announced the date of its next big event where it is expected to be revealed its new device along with updates some of its trajectory devices. We are talking about the great American multinational company that designs and produces electronic equipment, software and services online, called Apple Inc.

The event will be held on September 12 and an important event of this great presentation is that it is the first event to be held at the Steve Jobs Theater at its new Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California. The invitation to the event does not reveal much.

After many rumors of its new devices and updates, Apple is expected to announce three new iPhone at the event: a next-generation iPhone 8 model with an edge-to-edge OLED display and a new 3D face scan camera, reports previous on Bloomberg; and updated versions of the current iPhone 7 and 7 Plus with wireless charging. In addition, it is rumored that the company will have a new Apple TV 4K running, along with Apple Watches that could have LTE connectivity.

An important fact of the company was held in June this year at its developer conference where Apple first announced iOS 11 and High Sierra software, but is being phased in for application developers. This event was a great help to get information about your new presentations which we will surely find on September 12th.

Samsung-autonomus-cars

Artificial intelligence is a world that from its beginnings has proven to be a dream and a great challenge for programmers since its end point is undefined; that is, it depends on creativity, imagination and experience to be built.

Today, artificial intelligence is defined as a newborn world because it is believed that we lack many to experiment, discover and create in their environment. This is what continues to inspire large electronics companies to experience, discover and improve the quality of life of people collectively and individually.

Large electronics companies are constantly in research and development to create more efficient devices according to the demands of users, and achieve the highest position among the companies in their environment. There is great competition in building vehicles and / or developing systems to replace the driver; that is to say, to create autonomous vehicles with specific functions given by the user.

So far companies like Apple, Google, among others have already presented their prototypes of autonomous vehicles and have tested them on public roads. Now it’s the turn of the electronics giant. Samsung is the latest company to get the go-ahead to test its self-driven cars on California’s public roads in addition to Nissan.

This is according to the list of companies that have accepted the terms of the California Department of Motor Vehicles’ Independent Vehicle Verification Program. In May, Samsung received approval to try self-driven cars in their home country, using software tailored to Hyundai vehicles.

Samsung would try to keep up with its technological rivals in the automotive environment to make the competition and revolutionize its industry. This is because in 2015, the electronics giant announced a new division that will focus on auto-driving vehicle software, rather than creating the entire vehicle after its biggest rival, Apple, has changed its approach from stand-alone cars to stand-alone systems.

With the authorization to test its self-propelled vehicles in California, Samsung could position itself to offer its technology to other companies, including an automaker, as it maintains an outpost in San Jose.
