The result of this work was the announcement of a virtual rugby tournament in the metaverse. The project was implemented in partnership with the Hong Kong company Index Game.

The companies will present an “immersive gaming experience” called The Hong Kong Sevens in honor of the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens 2022 championship, which will be held in Hong Kong from November 4 to 6. This will be a series of quests that will immerse players in the world of rugby.

“The Metaverse is how people will experience Web3, the next generation internet, using immersive technologies such as augmented reality, virtual reality and augmented reality. We see great potential at HSBC to create new experiences through new platforms that open up a world of opportunity for our current and future customers and the communities we serve,” said HSBC Asia Pacific Marketing Director Suresh Balaji.

The Sandbox is a virtual world based on the Ethereum blockchain using play-to-earn game mechanics and combining blockchain technology, DeFi and NFT in a 3D metaverse. The project was launched by the game developer Pixowl. The virtual world allows players to create their own games and digital assets using free tools. The created virtual goods can then be monetized as NFTs and sold for SAND tokens on The Sandbox Marketplace.

The SAND token is the native token of The Sandbox. It is used to conduct all transactions and in-game interactions. SAND can be obtained by playing The Sandbox and participating in contests, as well as by purchasing on cryptocurrency exchanges such as Binance.

The Twitter Blue subscription will cost 7 but not on

The media reported that Twitter decided to change the price of the Blue subscription. It will cost $7, but you will have to pay $11 in the App Store right away to offset the 30% commission that Apple takes. Such a commission is valid for the first year, then it drops to 15%. It is possible that the subscription price will also drop in the coming December.

Earlier, Elon Musk has already spoken out against Apple for such a high commission and said that the corporation threatened to remove Twitter from the App Store. Later, after meeting with Apple CEO Tim Cook, Mac said there were no such threats. In addition, earlier the businessman postponed the launch of a paid subscription, fearing the same high commission.

Thus, when paying through the web version, the price will be significantly lower, although it is not yet clear whether these are just plans for the future or a ready-made scenario.

Earlier it was reported that after Musk bought it on Twitter, many employees of Tesla and The Boring Company, as well as some of the billionaire’s relatives, went to work.

This screen should be on all phones Reviews of Realme

The journalists of the Gizmochina resource most of all praise the new screen, arguing that this should be in every smartphone. Recall, the new Realme is equipped with a curved OLED display with a very narrow frame. But it is also one of the first devices on the market that supports PWM at a frequency of 2160 Hz. Thanks to this, the use of a smartphone should not cause discomfort for people who are sensitive to flicker.

Our colleagues also note a low weight of 180 g, but Realme achieved it quite simply: both the case frame and the back cover are made of plastic.

The performance of the smartphone is very high, as it has a new Dimensity 1080 SoC, which is slightly faster than the Dimensity 920.

As for the rest, the novelty has a decent 108-megapixel camera, a lot of memory, excellent autonomy and good software (Android 13 with Realme UI 4 shell).

No overheating no throttling no screen brightness reduction The head

The head of Xiaomi, Lei Jun, continues to praise the upcoming flagships of the Xiaomi 13 line. And gamers should like his new message.

More precisely, gamers who love the mobile version of Genshin Impact, one of the most resource-intensive games on smartphones.

No overheating, no throttling, no screen brightness reduction.  The head of Xiaomi promises 60 fps in Genshin Impact for Xiaomi 13

According to the head of the company, future flagships will be able to cope with this game without problems at maximum graphics quality settings and at 60 fps. And while supposedly there will be no overheating or throttling.

Of course, high performance is primarily due to the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, and not directly to Xiaomi flagships. But the absence of overheating and throttling suggests that the company has worked on the cooling system. Allegedly, even under load in the game, the temperature will not rise above 43 degrees. And even if you charge your smartphone at the same time.

Moreover, even the screen brightness will not decrease after a while, which, unfortunately, has become the norm for most flagship devices in recent years.

It remains to wait for the release of new products and look at the test results.
