Edge computing, the cloud and digital twins were among the dominant themes at this year’s Hannover

Edge computing, the cloud and digital twins were among the dominant themes at this year’s Hannover Fair, the world’s largest industrial exhibition. But despite the show being bigger than ever with the addition of the CeMat logistics show, visitor numbers dipped slightly. Have we hit “peak Hannover”? This year’s edition of the world’s largest industrial trade show attracted 210,000 visitors – down from the 225,000 who attended the 2017 event, despite the biennial CeMat logistics show running alongside the Fair for the first time, and the presence of the now-annual MDA (Motion, Drives & Automation) show-within-a-show, which was not held in 2017. Despite these statistics, you would be hard-pressed to notice any easing of the crowds at the fairground. Visitors had a choice of 5,800 exhibitors to see in almost 30 vast halls. About 30% of the visitors were from outside Germany with China sending the largest delegation (around 6,500 people), followed by the Netherlands (5,300), Poland (2,700) and the US (1,700). As in recent years, Industry 4.0, digitisation and the cloud were omnipresent themes, but one area where there was a noticeable amount of activity in 2018 was edge computin...

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> Embest’s $60 “MaaxBoard” SBC runs Yocto Linux or Android 9.0 on a quad -A53 i.MX8M with 2GB to 4GB DDR4, 4K playback, and a Raspberry Pi-like layout and 40-pin header. There’s also an upcoming i.MX8M Mini based model. Embest, a Chinese manufacturer that flipped over to Avnet when it acquired Premier Farnell, has begun selling a Raspberry Pi-like SBC with the key difference that it features NXP’s i.MX8M SoC. The $60 MaaxBoard has a 40-pin GPIO header with “partial” HAT compatibility as well as a mostly Pi-like layout. It’s unclear whether the lone $60 package gives you the i.MX8M Dual, QuadLite, or Quad model. The up to 1.5GHz Cortex-A53 i.MX8M also includes a Cortex-M4F real-time core and a 4K-ready Vivante GC7000Lite/GC7000VLX GPU. Embest clocks the SoC at 1.4GHz. The $60 price appears to include 2GB RAM and an empty eMMC socket. The product page mentions “up to” 2GB DDR4 SDRAM and “0 ~ 64GB” eMMC while Embest’s SlideShare preview presentation from June lists a default of 2GB RAM but no specific eMMC listing. Th...

From a smart satire about race to a memoir of a Scottish girlhood, and the finale

From a smart satire about race to a memoir of a Scottish girlhood, and the finale of the Cromwell trilogy, BBC Culture picks some the must-read books to hunker down with. A series of episodic vignettes, the widely acclaimed novel Weather is narrated by librarian Lizzie, who speaks with frankness about her daily preoccupations and ordinary anxieties. These include worries about her troubled mother, her recovering-addict brother – and the climate emergency. “Weather achieves a rare triumph… it’s an uncannily realistic portrait of what it’s like to be alive right now,” says the Telegraph. In its musings, jokes, and snatches of memory, the book “zooms from the micro to the macro”, according to the New Statesman. “Weather captures the anxiety and absurdity of the 21st Century.” Real Life tells the coming-of-age story of Wallace, who is studying for a Biochemistry degree but is at odds with the midwestern university town he finds himself in. A shy young man from Alabama, he has left his family behind – but not his troubling childhood memories. Then come confrontations with colleagues and a surprise encounter with a classmate. “Brandon Taylor emerges as a powerhouse with this artful de...

Coinciding with the launch of its first stand-alone store in Asia, UK jewelry brand The Great

Coinciding with the launch of its first stand-alone store in Asia, UK jewelry brand The Great Frog is collaborating with NEIGHBORHOOD for a limited edition collection of rings and apparel. In the late ’80s, Shinsuke Takizawa, founder of NEIGHBORHOOD, visited The Great Frog’s London flagship and bought the infamous Eye Ring and Evil Skull Ring. Three decades later, both brands have joined together to celebrate the opening of TGF Tokyo. The highlight of the collection is a set of signet rings in both 925 sterling silver and 9ct yellow gold. “Fuck Em” covers the circular and rectangular surfaces in an elegant script, while “Tokyo” and “London” decorate the bands. Both “The Great Frog” and “NEIGHBORHOOD” brand the inside of the rings in distinctive fonts, surrounding a crossbones design. Along with the jewelry, black T-shirts and hoodies feature collaborative branding and a skull graphic in contrasting white. Located in Shibuya City, the two-story TGF store is designed by architectural firm Brinkworth, using colors and materials that reflect TGF’s British heritage. The interior is adorned with tiles — while handcrafted in Japan, the traditional bottle-green glazed tiles are reminisc...

One of the last dumb things in your smart home might be your outdoor lighting. If you

One of the last dumb things in your smart home might be your outdoor lighting. If you want a smart outdoor lighting system for your garden, you could cobble together an array of smart home lighting products from various makers or use products from one brand, such as the Philips Hue outdoor line. But I recommend a different route: Upgrade the bulbs in your current outdoor fixtures to LED and use an outdoor plug adapter to make your garden lights part of your home control tech. You won’t get all the bells and whistles possible, but if you can live without nightclub color scenes or speakers built into lights, you’ll like the results of my cheap and straightforward upgrade. The first thing to determine is what kind of LED bulbs will fit the sockets in your fixtures. Remove your current bulbs and inspect the base: It will most likely be a bayonet, bipin or wedge. Bipin bulbs are particularly common and come in a wide variety of sizes that look almost identical. The key differentiator is the spacing between the pins. A G4 bipin has 4mm spacing, a G5.3 has 5.3mm spacing, and so on. You’ll encounter a lot of bipin bulbs. They are often known by their “G” nu...
