Apple Planning A Slow-Motion Capable iPhone Camera


According to 9to5Mac, code has been discovered inside of Apple’s latest iOS 7 beta that suggests the company may be planning to implement a high-speed camera capable of shooting video in slow motion. The iOS feature is reportedly codenamed “Mogul” and can capture video at 120 frames per second, meaning footage could be slowed down to almost a fifth of real-time while remaining detailed and smooth, although it is currently not known what resolution slow motion mode will be available at. The Samsung Galaxy S4 already offers a slow motion video capture mode, so it looks likely that Apple will be offering something to compete.

The Ultra Modern Benz A-Class.

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled a radical overhaul of its A-Class compact at Auto Shanghai. The German automaker said that the new Concept A-Class was “the first heartbeat of a new generation.”  It signals a major departure from the boxy outline of the current A-Class, popular in cities because of its small size, in favor of a long hood, low silhouette and more sporty appearance.  Mercedes-Benz design chief Gorden Wagener said that the new look was inspired by “the wind and waves, as well as aviation engineering, resulting in this ‘cool’ look.”  Designed to take on premium urban cars such as the Audi A1 and BMW 1-Series, the redesigned A-Class packs a turbocharged four-cylinder engine from the new M270 series, developing 155 kW with a transmission the automaker says is economical, sporty and comfortable.

With a large panoramic roof, the Concept A-Class is particularly airy, reinforced by the aircraft-inspired interior which has resulted in component groups being reduced to a minimum and a high-tech lining which gives the dash a “free-floating” effect.  A smartphone holder has been integrated into the center console, allowing drivers to operate their handsets from the car’s infotainment system designed by Mercedes-Benz technical teams in Silicon Valley (Palo Alto), California.  The addition of a radar-based collision warning system, which warns the driver of a potential collision and primes the brakes, could help to prevent around 20 percent of all rear-end collisions, and mitigate the severity of a further 25 percent, according to the automaker’s research.

Road SMS.

Keeping an eye on the road ahead may be difficult at times.  The one time I know it’s always hard to keep focused on the road is when I’m getting head while driving, other that, texting and walking takes the cake.  Now people would assume it should be fairly easy to walk and type, bu they all think that until they walk face first into another person.  The Android and the iPhone each have apps now that make it possible to safely text while walking. The built-in cameras project an image of what’s in front of you and set it as the background while you’re texting.  What a useful invention.
