Researchers from Brown University have figured out how to encode and interpret pictures utilizing chemical molecules as opposed to microchips, with their framework working with 98 percent exactness.
The examination, distributed on Wednesday in the open-get to diary PLOS ONE, showed that the little particle data stockpiling can effectively encode in excess of 100,000 bits of computerized pictures into manufactured metabolomes.
Already, biomolecules like DNA have been utilized to help store data. In the new examination, the analysts turned to other atoms: metabolites, which are little, increasingly various and can possibly store data at more noteworthy thickness than the genome.
A metabolite is any synthetic concoctions associated with digestion, either as a result of digestion or as essential for digestion.
They utilized fluid taking care of robots to compose computerized data by dabbing blends of metabolites into a matrix on a surface. An instrument called a mass spectrometer can peruse the areas and characters of the metabolites and report out double information.
“A molecular hard drive or a chemical computer might still seem like science fiction, but biology shows us it is possible,” said Jacob Rosenstein the leader of the study in Brown University.
They could encode the data from an image and after that translate it to redraw the picture with 98 to 99.5 percent exactness. In the investigation, the specialists recuperated the picture of a grapple and a flag with the engraving of “Hope”
The OPPO Reno6 5G: Iconic Reno Design with the Reno Glow
What is it about some phones that stop people in their tracks when they look into the store window? It is unquestionable that technical features and functionality play an essential role in how people perceive a smartphone, but design – from the color, material, finish, and shape – a phenomenal design is capable of creating a refreshing first impression towards the product.
At OPPO, our belief is that for a design to be exceptional, it must satisfy three different levels of criteria. The first and most fundamental of these is that the design should attract people – through appealing colors and unique shapes or forms. Second, the design needs to satisfy user needs when it comes to providing a comfortable user experience across the lifetime of the product. And finally, once those two conditions are met, the design needs to then deliver additional value to its owners – one that makes them feel excited each time they interact with the product and feel empowered by the value brought by the brand.
OPPO’s exclusive Reno Glow effect has been a central part to the overall design of the Reno series and has evolved together with the series through each iteration. The Reno Glow design was first introduced on the Reno4 5G Series, where it brought a subtle sparkling finish to the anti-glare glass thanks to OPPO’s unique etching technique. On the subsequent Reno5 and the new Reno6 Series, the Reno Glow effect has been improved to make it even brighter and more sparkling.
The new Reno6 5G plays host to an all-new color finish, Aurora, which is created using an upgraded version of the OPPO-exclusive Diamond Spectrum process that sits beneath the Reno Glow on the back cover of the phone. Thanks to its special properties, the Diamond Spectrum creates an ever-changing color effect when viewed at different angles and in different light, which is further enhanced by the crystal-clear shine of the Reno Glow effect.
With Aurora as an inspiration to the soon to be launched Reno6 5G, we encourage Kenyans to demonstrate their interpretation of Aurora through sharing stunning images of our beautiful Kenyan scenery, colourful outfits or stunning make up looks under the hashtags #FindYourAurora and #EveryEmotioninPortrait. To know more visit OPPO Kenya social media channels.
Reno Glow not only gives the phone its spectacular appearance, but it also helps provide the Reno series with the comfortable, carefree feeling that it has come to be known for, with the fingerprint and stain-resistance properties enabled by Reno Glow.
A thin, light and premium body is a staple feature on Reno6 5G. To assure these, OPPO has continually optimized the use of components and their layout within the device. The result of all these improvements is a series of devices that can be easily held with just one hand, can fit comfortably into a pocket, and can be used for long periods without feeling tiresome.
In addition to its thin and light body, the Reno6 Series has also been designed to offer a better grip. On the Reno6 5G, which features a new, ultra-slim retro design and a sleek, flat-edged frame, the phone’s beveled edges can also make it extremely comfortable to hold.
Looking into the future, we are furthering our efforts to consistently improve the Reno Glow process, introducing more creative visual appeal to the foundation of the matte and sparkling appearance.

CNN’s Inside Africa explores Africa’s Green Energy Revolution
CNN International recently met the innovators leading the charge in Africa’s renewable energy revolution.
Renewable energy sources are increasingly being explored as a solution to power the continent. Erick Donasian Massawe, M-Kopa’s Director of Sales and Customer Retention, discusses the potential for Africa to become a key player in green energy, “The potential for Africa to become a leader in the energy trade is huge. Sub Saharan Africa alone represents more than 600 million people who don’t have access to energy, basic electricity, so if you think about that in terms of the market size it’s really big.”
Nairobi-based M-Kopa launched in 2010 with a vision to ensure everyone has access to high-powered energy, and they started by rolling out pay-as-you-go solar power across Kenya. Massawe speaks about the company, “Our mission is to finance progress, and really financing progress of our customers. And that is perhaps one of the most exciting parts about M-Kopa, because it is actually touching development aspects of every individual person here. So, as we offer them solar products, we are powering their lives, we are giving them access to power.”
Kenya is at the heart of the renewable energy revolution, as sustainable natural resources are increasingly being used to fuel business, industry, and the country’s entrepreneurial spirit. Chalker Kansteiner, founder and CEO of GridX Africa explains why Kenya is ideal for renewable energy companies, “I think Nairobi is emerging as a bit of a hub for the entire continent when it comes to tech start-ups and clean energy. So, in that way we’re surrounded by really amazing sort of peers in the space, and there’s a huge amount of demand for our business here. It’s a great jumping point to reach the rest of the continent. I think the opportunity to grow here is better than anywhere else.”
GridX Africa Project Manager George Mosomi talks about how solar power is changing lives across the country, “We have communities now being able to feed themselves through solar-powered irrigation. Communities able to power themselves through microgrids, the communities able to have a longer day through more security through solar-powered lights.”
The programme joins Mosomi as he conducts a site visit with Bernard Njoroge, one of Kenya’s most successful entrepreneurs and the Managing Director of the telecommunications company Adrian Kenya. Njoroge describes why he endeavours to use renewable energy, “The biggest thing in African companies, in manufacturing, is the source of the power. I must be able to use sustainable energy because it’s natural.”
Njoroge believes that entrepreneurs across Africa can use sustainable methods to empower and inspire others, “The most important thing is that, I believe, problems all over Africa will be solved by Africans.”
Inside Africa also looks at how hydroelectric energy is being used to power communities in Kenya. In Muranga County, John Magiro, founder of Magiro power, uses the flow of the river to harness kinetic energy and transforms it into electric energy utilising an innovative small-scale hydropower plant he designed and built himself. He discusses the impact on the local community, “Right now, I have connected about 608 households and it is around 2,500 people that are using Magiro Power.”
Growing up in Muranga County, Magiro says access to power was expensive and unstable. This inspired him to come up with this alternative supply of energy for his community, “I think on my side I can propose mainly focusing off renewable and green energy in Africa. Because even if you have energy and it is not renewable, I think you are not going somewhere. But if you have the clean and renewable and affordable energy, the continent of Africa will be impressed.”
Renewable energy is powering up and empowering communities across Africa. Mosomi sums up the continent’s innovative role, “I see this as a big opportunity for the rest of the world to learn from what’s happening in Africa.”
Amp up your productivity with realme as lockdowns take precedence.
The country is back on lockdown, and while this is not new, it was somehow unexpected. Once again, people are stuck at home thanks to the seemingly perpetual grip coronavirus has across the globe.
