Leica introduced a wristwatch

Published

Leica, a company specializing in the production of digital and analog cameras for home and professional use, has introduced the Leica L1 and L2 premium wristwatches.

Leica calls them “two wonderful watches with a patented push-down crown”. The watch was designed by Prof. Achim Heine, who has designed many Leica products in the past. As a result, the Leica L1 and Leica L2 contain references to Leica’s signature features. These include, for example, the slim design of the hour hands and applied indexes, the shape of the stainless steel case, the special notches on the crowns and the convex glass reminiscent of a camera lens.

Both models are equipped with a brand new hand-wound mechanical movement. The mechanism is visible through the transparent case back made of durable sapphire glass, which protects the watch from scratches. Maintaining the “Made in Germany” label was extremely important to Leica, which is why the company entered into a partnership agreement with Lehmann Prazision GmbH. As a result, the movement and most of the watch’s components were designed and manufactured at the Lehmann factory in the Black Forest region of Germany.

Chinese rover goes dormant on Mars

China’s Zhurong rover went into hibernation during a harsh winter on Mars due to cold, sand and dust storms.

The rover is solar-powered and has gone into sleep mode since May 18. Temperatures on the Red Planet, meanwhile, are around -20°C during the day and -100°C at night, according to the China Lunar Exploration Program.

China’s Tianwen-1 orbiter, which brought Zhurong to Mars last May, has also observed sand and dust storm activity over the rocker’s landing pad in Utopia Plain.

The design of the rover has several features to help withstand winter temperatures, sand and dust storms. These measures include the ability to tilt the solar panels to maximize the collection of sunlight and a special dust-proof coating on the panels.

The Chinese rover is not alone in its plight: Nasa’s InSight lander, which arrived on the Red Planet in November 2018, is also struggling to produce enough solar power to keep going. At the same time, the Nasa Curiosity and Perseverance rovers can continue their journey on the surface of Mars regardless of the time of year, since they use radioisotope thermoelectric generators.

The rover is expected to resume operations again in December, with the arrival of spring in the northern hemisphere and the end of dust storms.

Sony will not let you enjoy the old games to the fullest.  PS3 projects within PS Plus will be released without add-ons

And now it became known that such games, unfortunately, will not support add-ons. DLC may someday be added, but at first you definitely shouldn’t expect them.

For example, Asura’s Wrath, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, Crash Commando, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and a number of other games received various kinds of add-ons at one time, for some projects there were a lot of such DLCs. But within the framework of PS Plus, it will not be possible to try them out. The source also publishes a list of PS3 games, but we published them a week ago, when Sony itself did this.
