Huawei has once again pushed the mobile photography boundaries with the introduction of the P30 Pro.

The new phone features the new Leica quad camera system with a 5X zoom ability and sensors that allow one to take extraordinary photos in low light conditions.

Their processor is lightning fast and the battery capacity is very impressive.

There is no doubt that it is an extraordinary phone. It takes incredible photographs.

In an incredible advancement of technology, a new specially designed cellphone game can detect people at risk of Alzheimer’s – according to new research from the University of East Anglia.

Researchers studied gaming data from an app called Sea Hero Quest, which has been downloaded and played by more than 4.3 million people worldwide.

Two years ago, a 64-year-old man paralysed by a spinal cord injury set a record when he used a brain-computer interface to type at a speed of eight words per minute.

Today, in the journal Nature, scientists at the University of California, San Francisco, present a new type of BCI, powered by neural networks, that might enable individuals with paralysis or stroke to communicate at the speed of natural speech - an average of 150 words per minute.

It is going to change the lives of people.
