Because our priority is the quality of the information that reaches our readers, we chose some articles published over the past week that reflect the most relevant things that were said in the technological and scientific world at Pplware.

We talked about several advances in science, everything that stands out in the new Xiaomi 12, what is expected for the new OnePlus 10R, and much more.

The Pentagon recently revealed that it tested a hypersonic missile - difficult for air defenses to detect because of its speed - in early March. This happened shortly after Russia began its invasion of Ukraine.

As far as is known, the UK, US and Australia are jointly developing hypersonic missiles.

The Sun, which is in its 25th cycle, shows up with a lot of activity and with repeated explosions of great magnitude hitting the Earth. These balls of plasma that reach our planet do their damage, as we saw recently when half a hundred Starlink satellites were destroyed.

Now, the "corpse" of a sunspot, which exploded on Monday (April 11), has triggered a mass ejection of material heading our way.

Smartphones are currently much more than mere communication devices. The various integrated technologies, the design and construction of these devices make them a true object of innovation and that is what Xiaomi has created with its new Xiaomi 12 smartphones.

In addition, they are authentic content production studios, aimed at “mastering every moment” and ensuring that nothing goes unrecorded, regardless of shooting conditions, the speed of object movements or the ambient light. In terms of cameras, the evolution has been significant both in hardware and in the artificial intelligence that makes up the software. Today we are going to know what Xiaomi has to offer us in this field.

With the evolution of technology and science in the last half century, having discoveries of this magnitude is a remarkable milestone. Thus, the NASA Alloy GRX-810 comes to raise curiosity about this super strong metal. This alloy was developed by the US space agency with the aim of being light and very resistant, having a set of characteristics that no other material has, for the manufacture of components used in space.

At the forefront of space exploration for decades, NASA doesn't just build rockets and train astronauts. This organization is heavily involved in research in various fields.

Many people are already used to hearing about cryptocurrencies, digital money, crypto assets, among other concepts. However, everything still seems to be far from being applied and integrated into the day-to-day routine, being just part of a niche market. But is it really so?

According to the latest information, the company Nexo and Mastercard have teamed up to now create their first payment card with crypto assets that will initially be launched in some European countries.

In recent days, rumors have started to emerge around the OnePlus 10R model. "Accidentally", Amazon published a promotional page for this device, from which the first images emerged. Eventually, this will even be the name of the smartphone in the global market, however, the company is preparing to place the OnePlus Ace on the Chinese market, with the same design.

What can this smartphone offer?

Once again, we are going to introduce you to another reason that demonstrates that technology is an excellent ally of medicine. The robot developed by MIT engineers will be used in emergency surgery for patients who have suffered a stroke.

Developed by Tango Gameworks (Bethesda Softworks), Ghostwire Tokyo can be considered one of the most outstanding games of this first quarter of 2022.

As we've seen over the last few months (see here or here), it's a game that breaks with the studio's legacy of horror titles, heading in a different direction.

We have already joined Akito and KK in their adventure through the deserted city of Tokyo.

To try to make the metaverse as similar as possible to the real one, there are specialists developing elements that will deal with this verisimilitude. This time, the novelty came from a group of researchers, who developed a command that will allow users to touch objects.

The device goes by the name of SpinOcchio.
