Researchers have discovered a star system with six planets whose orbits are in almost perfect rhythm. According to a study published in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics , the star, dubbed HD 158259, is orbited by a "super-Earth" and "five mini-Neptunes." This in itself is unusual, given that astronomers only know of around dozen star systems containing six or more planets. However, what makes the HD 158259 system so remarkable is the exceptionally regular spacing of its planets. All pairs of subsequent planets in the system are said to be close to the "3:2 resonance." This essentially means that as the first planet—or the one closest to the star—completes three orbits, the second one completes roughly two orbits. And as the second planet completes three orbits, the third completes roughly two. This pattern continues for all the subsequent planets. "This is comparable to several musicians beating distinct rhythms, yet who beat at the same time at the beginning of each … [Read more...] about Six-planet star system discovered where worlds orbit in near-perfect rhythm
After a busy period of multiple restocks last week, PS5 supplies are now dwindling once again. That being said, there is at least one major U.S. outlet that is currently selling the next-gen hardware. Here is a breakdown of the latest PS5 restock information. Amazon PS5 Restock After an incredibly short-lived restock last week , the PS5 is once again unavailable from the Amazon marketplace. If you are willing to buy a second-hand unit, then you might be able to find one of those on the website. However, it is worth bearing in mind that these are not being traded by Amazon itself, but rather by third-party scalpers who will charge you an extortionate amount. For instance, there is currently a used PS5 listed for $900 and that is without any games or accessories bundled in with the purchase. As such, we would recommend that you instead wait for the next official Amazon restock to take place. Check PS5 restock at Amazon Newegg PS5 Restock You are able to … [Read more...] about PS5 restock update for Walmart, Newegg, Amazon, GameStop, Best Buy, Target and more
September has been a hectic month for new hardware. Following Apple and Microsoft , Amazon took to the (virtual) stage to unveil new additions to its Echo and Ring lineups, including security monitoring hardware and software services, plus a Wall-E-like robot (last week, it unveiled new Kindles too ). Here’s everything Amazon announced today. A Cute Robot The strangest and most unique device unveiled at the hardware event is a new Alexa-powered robot called Astro. This rolling household robot combines computer vision, artificial intelligence, Alexa, and Ring technologies to become your digital dog on wheels. The idea is to solve the problems associated with stationary devices, allowing for easy communication with those who are elderly or disabled. You can use Astro to check on rooms in a household, people, and pets while you’re away, like a roving security camera. With built-in mannerisms like eyes, screen motion, and the ability to speak, it's designed to drive … [Read more...] about Everything Amazon Announced—Including a Cute Security Robot
Opinion : Amazon debuted its robot Astro this week, and the question I keep asking myself isn't “when can I buy one?” It's “what's the point?” And I can't come up with a good answer. In fact, I'm not convinced Amazon can either. Astro - a name that many think Amazon lifted from the dog in the space-age cartoon, The Jetsons - is pretty limited in what it can do. READ MORE: Amazon investment: New Zealand has 10 years to supercharge our SaaS sector Infrastructure and 'talent' why Amazon selected Auckland for $7.5b investment Amazon introduces new Wall-E-like robot Astro First of all, it has wheels. Which limits its biggest selling point, “bringing Alexa to you”, to one level of your house, as it can't scale stairs. Even when Astro is next to you, its usefulness still seems pretty limited. Astra has a 10.1-inch HD screen, stereo speakers, a microphone, a periscope camera (that extends to 106.68cm from the floor), and a detachable cup holder. That's it. And … [Read more...] about What is the point of Amazon’s new robot, Astro?
