Anker’s smart home brand Eufy has launched a new security camera called EverCam on Kickstarter. The EverCam is a 1080p entirely wireless security camera meant for both indoor and outdoor use. While most security cameras are required to be plugged into power, the EverCam makes do with a battery that promises to run for up to 365 days on a single charge. The device has already raised over $500,000 (roughly Rs. 3.3 crore) from over 1,600 backers.

The EverCam is a water-resistant full-HD-recording security camera that does not require users to plug it into a wall as it features inbuilt magnets. You can cling it to any metal surface, though it comes with a screw mount as well if you want to use it. The best feature of the EverCam is its massive 13400mAh lithium-ion battery from Anker that claims to last one year on a single charge or three years in standby mode.

Eufy has also introduced facial recognition technology that helps the camera cut down on unnecessary recordings, as it can recognise familiar faces, differentiate between pets and humans, and more. This process reduces false alarms by up to 95 percent, the company claims.

 

The EverCam is equipped with a Sony Exmor IMX 323 sensor with large f2.2 aperture. It has a 140-degree wide-angle lens that provides a panoramic view. The camera sends a notification to users according to their security level preference, whether it is alerts of all the movements detected or only when a stranger’s face shows up.

The camera has a 16GB microSD card that is protected by AES 128-bit encryption. All the recorded footage can be unlocked and viewed only when the user plugs the card into the base station, and connects to a computer or smartphone. Users also have access to a cloud subscription for additional security. The company estimates the card can hold roughly around 1 year of video footage at normal usage. The optional cloud storage subscription for saving and viewing video clips in real time, costs $2.99 per month. The EverCam also gets Eufy mobile app support, from where live feeds can be viewed. The company also plans to add support for Alexa, Google Assistant and IFTTT via software updates, so users can stream the video footage by giving a voice command.

Coming to the pricing, interested buyers can back the project now by shelling out $219 (roughly Rs. 14,400) for one camera, though the MSRP is $329 (roughly Rs. 21,600). For two cameras, you will have to pay $329 (Rs. 21,600), while the MSRP is $499 (roughly Rs. 32,700).

Novel microscope can non-invasively diagnose, treat diseases:Study

The Kashmir Monitor

Published

on

Scientists have developed a specialised microscope that has the potential to diagnose diseases like skin cancer as well as perform precise surgery without making any incisions in the skin.

According to the study published in the journal Science Advances, the microscope allows medical professionals to pinpoint the exact location of an abnormality, diagnose it and treat it instantly.

“Our technology allows us to scan tissue quickly, and when we see a suspicious or abnormal cell structure, we can perform ultra-precise surgery and selectively treat the unwanted or diseased structure within the tissue – without cutting into the skin,” said Yimei Huang from the University of British Columbia in Canada.

 

It could be used to treat any structure of the body that can be reached by light and requires extremely precise treatment, including nerves or blood vessels in the skin, eye, brain or other vital structures, researchers said.

“For diagnosing and scanning diseases like skin cancer, this could be revolutionary,” said Harvey Lui, professor at the University of British Columbia.

The study shows that the device allows imaging of living tissue up to about one millimetre in depth using an ultrafast infrared laser beam.

Researchers said that this microscope, however, is different from previous technology due to its capability to not only digitally scan living tissue, but also treat the tissue by intensifying the heat produced by the laser.

“We can alter the pathway of blood vessels without impacting any of the surrounding vessels or tissues,” said Lui.

The researchers also said that their aim is to make multiphoton microscope technology more versatile while also increasing its precision.

“We wanted to be able to identify what was happening under the skin from many different angles and to have the capability of imaging different body sites,” said Haishan Zeng from the University of British Columbia.

Developments of a miniature version of the telescope that could be used to perform microscopic examinations and treatment during endoscopy are also underway, researchers said.

“We are not only the first to achieve fast video-rate imaging that enables clinical applications, but also the first to develop this technology for therapeutic uses,” said Zeng

After Asus and Nubia, Black Shark is set to launch a high-end gaming smartphone in India. According to BGR India, Black Shark has already started sending invites for the launch of Black Shark 2. The gaming phone will reportedly launch in India on May 27.

The entire display, according to the company, is pressure sensitive. This means gamers can map onto the display that reacts to different levels of pressure
Under the hood, it is powered by a Snapdragon 855 processor coupled with either 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage or 12GB RAM and 256GB of storage. There’s also a 4,000mAh battery with 27W fast charging support, a 48MP/12MP rear camera setup, and a 20MP front-facing camera.

It also features an in-display fingerprint scanner, similar to the OnePlus 7 Pro and Galaxy S10+. Black Shark 2 also comes with Liquid Cooling 3.0, a vapor cooling system similar to what the Razer Phone 2 uses. The company also plans to sell optional accessories with the Black Shark 2 in India.

The launch of Black Shark 2 comes at a time when the popularity of mobile games like PUBG and Fortnite at the all-time high in India. The gaming smartphone will take on the likes of the Asus ROG Phone and Nubia Red Magic. Interestingly, ZTE’s sub-brand Nubia is also expected to launch the Red Magic 3 in India in the coming days.
