Xiaomi Mobile Software has patented a new PTZ camera design for a smartphone that has already been approved and published by the Chinese regulator.

When folded, the camera block is hidden in the smartphone body and does not protrude beyond the plane of the rear panel. However, when the camera is activated, the block rotates 90 degrees, while, judging by the sketch image, the thickness of the protruding part of the camera block exceeds the smartphone body itself. In such a block, you can place good optics to get high-quality photos.

However, the main advantage of this solution is that it allows you to use a thin smartphone most of the time, which will not cling to pockets or stagger on the table. It is for this that, for example, the latest iPhone models and other camera phones are criticized.

As is often the case, the fact that a patent is registered is not at all proof that we will see this solution in a commercial smartphone.

It would seem that it is almost impossible to change such a thing as a keyboard in any original way. However, the user under the nickname Squidgeefish succeeded. He added a real disk from an old wired telephone to a regular keyboard and made it all work.

The disk is placed on the right and performs the functions of a digital block – only numbers need to be entered by turning the dialer. And here a problem arises – such a system is analog, and any modern keyboard is digital. The enthusiast was able to connect the drive from the phone using the DFRobot Beetle Board based on the ATmega32U4 chip. This board is able to work with analog signals and at the same time supports a standard USB port.

I also had to experiment with the keyboard itself, because I had to cut the printed circuit board. And for aesthetics, the enthusiast added 3D-printed makers. The result is a rather strange and quirky, but fully functional keyboard. According to the source, the cost of the project was no more than $30.
