A smart watch allows you to write texts in the air using only your fingers

Researchers from Zhejiang University in China have developed a smart watch that allows the user to write messages in the air. An application then captures that text and enters it on the device, without the need for the user to touch the screen. An application installed on a Smart watch makes it possible to write texts in the air and transfer them to the device, thus simplifying the sending of messages and other tasks that require text entry. A computer program supplies wrist and hand movement data to an Artificial Intelligence model, thus integrating wrist and fingertip movements when typing. ...

Ben Roethlisberger, Baker Mayfield by the numbers: Steelers and Browns quarterbacks make light offensive history

The last "Monday Night Football" game of the 2021 NFL regular season was exactly what most expected. The Steelers and Browns participated in a classic AFC North battle, where Pittsburgh won 26-14 thanks to a solid defensive performance and a great performance from rookie running back Najee Harris. All attention was on Ben Roethlisberger in this one, as the veteran Steelers quarterback played in what many believe was his last home game. Big Ben was featured prominently in Pittsburgh's game plan and earned the win, but even he admitted it wasn't pretty at all. "You know what? It's funny because [it] probably [didn't go] the way he wanted it, plus victory, "Roethlisberger said of the team's performance in a post-game interview with ESPN's Lisa Salters." That is all that really matters. ...

The EU is divided over gas and nuclear power, but what are countries most dependent on?

The european commission last proposal Labeling natural gas and nuclear energy as green sources under the so-called EU taxonomy has reopened schisms within the bloc over what should be considered sustainable energy sources.Last year, when Brussels introduced the EU taxonomy, a technical regulation identifying activities that contribute to the green transition, natural gas and nuclear power were conspicuously absent.Now, with the Commission's proposal to include them in its classification system, the debate on how green these energy sources are has been reactivated.Natural gas accounted for 22.3% of the EU energy mix in 2019, and nuclear power accounted for 13.1% according to Eurostat, but its use varies in each member state.We analyze which energy sources European countries depend on the...
