projections like a cat or dog from the camera app and users can move their smartphone around to interact with this AR creature Asus Zenfone AR is powered by Qualcomm Snadragon 821 processor So the depth-sensing area-learning techniques of Tango require that the SoC on board the smartphone can handle these advanced tasks Qualcomm says that in case of Tango-phones also the “Tango-related processing is done on a single highly efficient SoC (system-on-a-chip)” The 821 SoC in Asus Zenfone AR has Qualcomm’s own Hexagon 680 DSP (Digital Signal Processor) with HVX and Qualcomm’s All-Ways Aware sensor hub These are what help in boosting Tango-based computer vision use case In case of the 821 advanced imaging tasks related to Project Tango are run on theHexagon 680 DSP which has “HVX (Hexagon Vector eXtensions) or wide vector SIMD extensions” thus ensuring efficient performance for the smartphone “The All-Ways Aware hub is dedicated for always-on sensor processing supporting ultra low-power “always-on” context awareness even when the SoC is off” according to Qualcomm Asus Zenfone AR has three cameras on the back In terms of specifications Asus Zenfone AR has 57-inch WQHD Super

support and other two cameras for motion-tracking and depth sensing There’s also an external five magnet speaker that supports Hi-Res audio and DTS virtual surround sound to deliver great AR and VR content viewing experience This is geared towards Google’s Day Dream platform which allows for virtual reality and 360 video viewing experience The smartphone runs Android 70 Nougat out-of-the-box

than conventional medications for your health think again A new study shows that liver injury caused by herbals and dietary supplements increased from seven percent to 20 percent in the US over a 10-year period Liver injury due to non-bodybuilding supplements is most severe more frequently resulting in death or the need for transplantation than liver injury from bodybuilding supplements or conventional medications said the study “With less stringent oversight for herbals and dietary supplements there is greater potential for harmful consequences including life-threatening conditions” cautioned Dr Victor Navarro from Einstein Medical Centre in Philadelphia The study examines hepatotoxicity due to supplements compared to medications covering 839 patients with liver injury between 2004 and 2013 Liver injury cases included 45 caused by bodybuilding supplements 85 attributed to non-bodybuilding supplements and 709 due to medications The research team determined that among cases enrolled liver injuries from herbal and dietary supplements rose from seven percent to 20 percent during the study period While bodybuilding supplements caused prolonged jaundice in young men no fatalities or liver transplantations occurred concluded the team However the team said that they could not conclude that liver injury due to herbals and dietary supplements in on the rise for which

the challenging nuclear waste that could lead to better cleanup methods Researchers at Washington State University studied the chemistry of technetium-99 a byproduct of plutonium weapons production which is considered a major challenge for environmental cleanup Watch all our videos from Express Technology At the Hanford Site nuclear complex in Washington there are about 2000 pounds of the element dispersed within about 56 million gallons of nuclear waste in 177 storage tanks The US Department of Energy is in the process of building a waste treatment plant at Hanford to immobilise hazardous nuclear waste in glassHowever researchers have been stymied because not all the technetium-99 is incorporated into the glass and volatilised gas must be recycled back into the melter system The element can be very soluble in water and moves easily through the environment when in certain forms so it is considered a significant environmental hazardSince technetium compounds are challenging to work with earlier research has used less volatile substitutes to try to understand the material’s behaviour Some of the compounds themselves have not been studied for 50 years said John McCloy associate professor in the School of Mechanical and Materials EngineeringThe researchers conducted fundamental chemistry tests to better understand technetium-99 and its unique challenges for storage Also Read: Scientists figure out way to convert nuclear waste to clean electricity They determined that the sodium forms of the element behave much differently than other alkalis which possibly is related to its volatility and to why it may be so reactive with water “The structure and spectral signatures of these compounds will aid in refining the understanding of technetium incorporation into nuclear waste glasses” said McCloy The researchers also hope the work will contribute to the study of other poorly understood chemical compounds The research was published in the journal Inorganic

by staying dormant inside progenitor blood cells that develop into immune cells These cellular reservoirs are resistant to the immune response of the host and the highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) administered to patients This means that the virus can attack white blood cells known as CD4+ T lymphocytes which help the body to mount an immune response after treatment “There are so many instances where patients stopped taking drugs and the virus rebounded There is no way to get people off the drugs” Nature quoted lead author Kathleen Collinsa cellular biologist at the University of Michigan in Ann Arboras saying HAART can stop the spread of the virus by preventing the viral genome from integrating into new cells The combinations of drugs used don’t attack the cell that makes copies of the virusbut they can prevent the newly made virus from infecting more cells The researchers show that HIV can target haematopoietic progenitor cells (HPCs) from the bone marrow before they give rise to white blood cells They took these cells from HAART-treated patients who have shown no detectable traces of the virus for at least six months When the researchers forced the cells to differentiate into white blood cells in the labthey found that the HIV genome in these cells in about 40 percent of the donors They also took cells from the bone marrow of healthy people and showed that the virus killed some cellsbut in other cells the virus integrated into the cells” chromosomes and did not reproduce The cells grew as if they were uninfected by the virus “If the drugs are on-boardthe virus is still being made but it is not doing much harm because it can’t spread” says Collins In the absence of the drugsthe infection renewsand patients need to return to the therapy and
