In 2016, the Hong Kong robotics company Hanson Robotics unveiled the humanoid robot Sophia. Now Hanson Robotics is moving to the stage of mass production of such robots, and the plans are grandiose.
Four Sophia robots will be released in the first half of the year, but this is just the beginning. Handon Robotics Founder and CEO David Hanson said that in a pandemic era, the world will need more and more automation to keep people safe.
Robots are already being used in healthcare and delivery, but CEO Hanson believes robotic solutions to fight the pandemic are not limited to healthcare. Robots can help in a wide variety of industries, including trading.
David Hanson stated that the company’s robots are very similar to humans, which is very useful in times when people are socially isolated and often lonely. He announced the company’s plans to sell thousands of robots in 2021.

Social robotics professor Johan Hoorn, who worked on Sophia, said that while the technology is still in its infancy, the pandemic could accelerate the building of relationships between humans and robots.
Winamp player added NFT support in Windows version
Music player Winamp announced the integration of non-fungible tokens based on the Ethereum and Polygon blockchains.
Music from NFT tracks plays just like any other audio files.
“Winamp has always been about accessibility and innovation, and today we are proud to launch the very first standalone player that reads NFT audio and other existing formats,” Winamp CEO Alexander Saboundjian wrote in the official release.
The latest version of Winamp allows music lovers to link their MetaMask cryptocurrency wallet through the Brave, Chrome or Firefox browser with Winamp. Users can then connect their favorite track as an NFT file.
In addition to audio, Winamp also supports video files based on the ERC-721 and ERC-1155 standards. So far, the novelty is supported only on the Windows operating network, but in 2023 the company plans to expand the line to other ecosystems.
In an upcoming update in early 2023, the Winamp developers plan to implement a dedicated service for artists and users. It is expected that direct sale of tokens will become available, as well as the organization of concerts through the services of the player. It is expected that the update will immediately be cross-platform.
Winamp is one of the oldest PC music players, created in 1997 by Nullsoft.
In 2013, the development of the player was stopped, but since 2018, work has been underway to restart it as a single multimedia platform.
The Twitter Blue subscription will cost $7, but not on all platforms. On iOS it will be more expensive
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 10 Pro+ with ultra-thin bezel and 2160Hz PWM appear
One of the first reviews of the Realme 10 Pro + smartphone has appeared on the Web, and the device really deserves attention.
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).
