private habitations in around 20 hours, with built-in plumbing and electrical facilities, in one continuous build, using large 3D printers.


Mechanical Jacks  Construction-Mechanical jacks used to change stage designs, alter settings  woodworking machines and adjust radio telescopes.

In the construction industry, screw jacks  also called house jacks  are used to hoist buildings from their foundations for repair or relocation.

In these applications, multiple jacks utilized, and wood cribbing temporarily supports the structure until  desired lift reached.

Screw jacks can  used for raising older beams or installing new ones.

Hydraulic Jacks in Construction-Image result for hydraulic jack in construction

The two most common types of hydraulic jacks are bottle jacks and floor jacks. Bottle jacks, also called hand jacks, are portable.

The piston positioned vertically and it supports  bearing pad that touches the object being lifted.

They’re most commonly used to lift cars, but they can  be used in the medical industry as hydraulic stretchers and patient lifts. Hydraulic jacks  can be utilized as pipe benders and cable splicers.

floor jacks, also known as trolley jacks, the most importantly piston is in a horizontal position, and a long arm provides vertical motion to a lifting pad similarly.

Therefore also are wheels and castors included in build. In  construction arena, hydraulic jacks  used for lifting equipment.Therefore the  Vehicles such as bulldozers, forklifts, trolleys, trailers, and excavators.

    dueling rival neural networks
    the top 5 breakthrough technologies in 2018

    Here is look at top 5 breakthrough technologies from 2018 that will create revolution. 3-d metal printing, artificial embryos, dueling neural networks, babel-fish earbuds and much more…

    1. 3-D Metal Printing

    3d metal printing applications in the automotive industry

    Metal 3-D Printing holds a unique position in modern-day product development. The technology can create lighter, stronger parts, and complex shapes that aren’t possible with conventional metal fabrication methods. It facilitates tooling for conventional manufacturing technologies, reducing costs and lead times. It can also provide more precise control of the microstructure of metals. In 2017, researchers from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory announced they had developed a 3-D-printing method for creating stainless-steel parts twice as strong as traditionally made ones. 

    Also in 2017, 3-D-printing company Markforged, a small startup based outside Boston, released the first 3-D metal printer for under $100,000.

    Another Boston-area startup, Desktop Metal, began to ship its first metal prototyping machines in December 2017. It plans to begin selling larger machines, designed for manufacturing, that are 100 times faster than older metal printing methods.

    The printing of metal parts is also getting easier. Desktop Metal now offers software that generates designs ready for 3-D printing. Users tell the program the specs of the object they want to print, and the software produces a computer model suitable for printing.   

    2. Artificial Embryos

    artificial embryos digital recreation

    In a breakthrough that redefines how life can be created, embryologists working at the University of Cambridge in the UK have grown realistic-looking mouse embryos using only stem cells. No egg. No sperm. Just cells plucked from another embryo.

    Synthetic human embryos would be a boon to scientists, letting them tease apart events early in development. And since such embryos start with easily manipulated stem cells, labs will be able to employ a full range of tools, such as gene editing, to investigate them as they grow.

    Artificial embryos, however, pose ethical questions. What if they turn out to be indistinguishable from real embryos? How long can they be grown in the lab before they feel pain? We need to address those questions before the science races ahead much further, bioethicists say.

    3. AI for Everybody

    AI for everybody

    Artificial intelligence has so far been mainly the plaything of big tech companies like Amazon, Baidu, Google, and Microsoft, as well as some startups. For many other companies and parts of the economy, AI systems are too expensive and too difficult to implement fully.

    What’s the solution? Machine-learning tools based in the cloud are bringing AI to a far broader audience. These products will be essential if the AI revolution is going to spread more broadly through different parts of the economy.

    Currently AI is used mostly in the tech industry, where it has created efficiencies and produced new products and services. But many other businesses and industries have struggled to take advantage of the advances in artificial intelligence. Sectors such as medicine, manufacturing, and energy could also be transformed if they were able to implement the technology more fully, with a huge boost to economic productivity.

    4. Dueling Neural Networks

    dueling neural network recreation

    Artificial intelligence is getting very good at identifying things: show it a million pictures, and it can tell you with uncanny accuracy which ones depict a pedestrian crossing a street. But AI is hopeless at generating images of pedestrians by itself. If it could do that, it would be able to create gobs of realistic but synthetic pictures depicting pedestrians in various settings, which a self-driving car could use to train itself without ever going out on the road.

    The problem is, creating something entirely new requires imaginationand until now that has perplexed AIs.

    The solution first occurred to Ian Goodfellow, then a PhD student at the University of Montreal, during an academic argument in a bar in 2014. The approach, known as a generative adversarial network, or GAN, takes two neural networksthe simplified mathematical models of the human brain that underpin most modern machine learningand pits them against each other in a digital cat-and-mouse game.

    Both networks are trained on the same data set. One, known as the generator, is tasked with creating variations on images it’s already seenperhaps a picture of a pedestrian with an extra arm. The second, known as the discriminator, is asked to identify whether the example it sees is like the images it has been trained on or a fake produced by the generatorbasically, is that three-armed person likely to be real?

    Over time, the generator can become so good at producing images that the discriminator can’t spot fakes. Essentially, the generator has been taught to recognize, and then create, realistic-looking images of pedestrians.

    The technology has become one of the most promising advances in AI in the past decade, able to help machines produce results that fool even humans.


    5. Babel-Fish Earbuds

    pixel earbuds for automatic language transalation

    In the cult sci-fi classic The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, you slide a yellow Babel fish into your ear to get translations in an instant. In the real world, Google has come up with an interim solution: a $159 pair of earbuds, called Pixel Buds. These work with its Pixel smartphones and Google Translate app to produce practically real-time translation.

    Google Translate already has a conversation feature, and its iOS and Android apps let two users speak as it automatically figures out what languages they’re using and then translates them. But background noise can make it hard for the app to understand what people are saying, and also to figure out when one person has stopped speaking and it’s time to start translating.

    Pixel Buds get around these problems because the wearer taps and holds a finger on the right earbud while talking. Splitting the interaction between the phone and the earbuds gives each person control of a microphone and helps the speakers maintain eye contact, since they’re not trying to pass a phone back and forth.

    HTC Exodus 1: Blockchain phone specs, price and release date



    Smartphone manufacturer HTC is taking a major leap into the cryptocurrency ecosystem. They are stepping into the wider blockchain industry. With HTC U12 and U12+ about to be unveiled in a couple of days, HTC has a lot of surprises for its users in its pocket. On 15th of this month, HTC unveiled a website that showcases the HTC Exodus. And HTC unveiled the Exodus today at web3summit.

    Furthermore, there is only one company that has completely succeeded in making a fully blockchain powered device. Swiss company Sirin-Labs unveiled there first phone Finney and HTC is joining the race with Exodus. Finney has a 12-megapixel rear camera with low-light f/1.8 aperture and an 8-megapixel 85-degree wide angle front facing the camera. It is powered by a 3,280mAh battery with fast charging support. Connectivity features include Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and LTE, among others. Specs wise the phone packs pretty much enough but what’s worth mentioning is what happens over the internet. The blockchain phone comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. It has a 6-inch display at 18:9 aspect ratio, 402ppi and 1500:1 contrast ratio. The phone features 128GB built-in storage and 6GB RAM.

    The HTC Exodus 1, aka the ‘blockchain phone’, is nearly ready to enter the wild, with the company has now confirmed the specs of its forthcoming cryptocurrency handset. Check out the TEASER.


    Blockchain phones are the new Virtual Reality. Every smartphone manufacturer is going to add something or the other that gets their hands-on in this domain. Huawei is rumored to be working on a secret Blockchain powered device which will have layers of decentralized apps and much more. Samsung has also created a blockchain network but we have no sources claiming a blockchain phone in the making.

    The Taiwanese firm unveiled the World’s first native blockchain phone. The tailor-made Android-powered phone will provide support for decentralized applications(DApps). Apps like CryptoKitties, and will feature a secure hardware enclave for users. Now the users will have access to a Universal Cryptocurrency wallet that is native to the device itself.
    With over two decades of experience manufacturing the world’s leading smartphones and shipping over 100 million phones, they believe they can help reshape the internet with the HTC Exodus.

    Working with multiple protocols with the intent of interoperability between blockchains. increasing DApp user base. Bringing a streamlined mobile user experience to the DApp community. Providing more nodes on the path to true decentralization. We want to double and triple the number of nodes of Ethereum and Bitcoin. To have your identity and data on the phone rather in a centralized cloud and open-mindedness towards the collective wisdom of the crowd.
    This is what HTC claims the Exodus can stand up to. The performance will be incomparable with any device of any brand as there aren’t any competitors in this domain of phones.

    • Exodus will have Hardware support for Cryptocurrencies

    • Will support Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Etherum

    • Advanced security features and claims of virtually “tamper proof”

    The phone will be compatible with multiple protocols and will exchange and make use of information vividly. Phil Chen who creates HTC’s virtual reality headset Vive is the leader of the Exodus project. HTC is rumored to be working on a VR specific device. HTC has a lot of gaming genre users and this will help them enhance their users’ experience. Still, it is good enough to witness a new and revolutionary phone.

    The company wants customers to be able to pay for the phone with cryptocurrencies, but we haven’t received any distinctive details. “We think that the phone can be an agent in the future for decentralization,” said Chen. “We want you to hold your own key [through] a secure management method in our phones.” This is official early access release to the EXODUS 1. They are inviting a community of developers and enthusiasts to work with us to keep building security. Join them in rebuilding trust together, one phone at a time. Get your early access now! Go to now!


    What exactly HTC wants Exodus to do

    Chen, who now holds the title of CDO (Chief Decentralized Officers), is the head of the firm’s crypto and blockchain related initiatives. “Through the Exodus, we are also excited to be supporting underlying protocols such as Bitcoin, Etherum, Dfinity and more,” Chen wrote in a blog post accompanying the announcement. Still, a vast majority of HTC fans want something new and innovative from them in a long time.

    He also wrote that “I want to see a world where the end consumers can truly own their data (browsing history, identity, assets, wallets, emails, messaging, etc) without the need for central authorities. There is a lot of work ahead of us, but I believe the mobile hardware layer can contribute significantly to our new decentralized world.” With Facebook’s Data Leak controversies, HTC might end up taking the lead in the smartphone race with this.

    I suppose we have to wait for a month or two to get more info on these type of devices. This revolutionary product might change the way we use the internet today. I don’t know exactly if I wanna buy one. It’ll be fun to use DApps and to hover over the decentralized web tbh. If anything does happen to your device, you can breathe easy, as HTC has imbued the Exodus with a social-themed security protocol that sees users nominate several contacts to hold a piece of a unique security key – and only bringing all of these pieces together will unlock the device.

    Qualcomm unveils Snapdragon 675 with new Kryo 460 CPU



    Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. is continuing to bring together global manufacturers and operators, along with software and hardware technology vendors, to strategize and discuss industry trends and technology developments with their Snapdragon chipsets. Mark your calendars for this 3-day event highlighting 5G, connectivity, AI, IoT and so much more. This year’s summit promises to be one of the best ever, featuring wireless leader keynotes, breakout sessions, multiple exhibits and networking events, all showcasing the latest technology, and much more. Qualcomm made a lot of advancements in the last few months. And the tech giant made steady announcements at their 4G/5G Summit at Hong Kong.

    Qualcomm 4G/5G Summit at Hong Kong

    In the Keynote, Qualcomm’s President Mr. Cristiano Amon talks about how 5G is nearing deployment, with global trials underway and deployments planned in the coming months. He continues about how the next generation of wireless will allow virtually every industry to deliver advanced connectivity and increased intelligence across the rapidly evolving wireless edge. It is essential that the broader ecosystem pursues the wireless and computing technologies that will provide the foundation for the coming transformation. To just have an overview read to it, focus on the key points as per Qualcomm:

    • Qualcomm optimized the Snapdragon 675 for mainstream use.

    • The first smartphones using the Snapdragon 675 will ship in Q1 2019.

    • The Snapdragon 675 is Qualcomm’s third mid-range processor announced within the past six months.


    Qualcomm makes one of the finest processors in the industry and as it turns out they also focus on the mid-range consumers. It comes out on the top with the 710 followed by the 670 in the mid-range category. Now that it is history, Qualcomm announced a new processor in the 600 range. The Snapdragon 675 is a really interesting processor but not for all the reasons you are thinking. In terms of where it fits in the overall Qualcomm’s mid-range processor, is somewhat between the 670 and the 710. And for a little humor, the Snapdragon 675 has got a slightly worse Adreno 612 GPU in it compared to the 615. The Snapdragon 675 has got the same modem as the 670, the exact DSPs and the image processors, but with a bit of enhancement.

    Qualcomm 675 chipset launched

    So, why is the Snapdragon 675 so interesting? Well, it is using the 4th Generation Kryo 460 CPU Design. And as per our research and Qualcomm’s announcement, no other processor in its lineup uses the 4th Gen CPU. Well, the Kryo core 1st Gen design is found in-house in the Snapdragon 820 and 821. Then the 2nd Gen Kryo which was built with the Cortex technology is found in the Snapdragon 835 and finally, the 3rd Gen is found in Snapdragon 845.

    Snapdragon 675 + 4th Gen Kryo Core

    Snapdragon 675 is basically a Cortex A76 coupled together with a Cortex A55. This new Architecture built on ARM Cortex offers a 20% overall performance improvement, optimized across 2 performance and 6 efficiency cores. So Qualcomm is using the 4th Gen with this 6+2 configuration. So it still is an Octa-core chipset but with 2 cores dedicated for higher stability and results and 6 for better power efficiency. So, more interestingly,  what this tells us is that the next 800 series will be using the 4th Gen Kryo.

    The 675 is not only filled with upgrades. For example, the 675 is constructed with an 11nm process whereas the Snapdragon 670 had a 10nm process. The GPU has been downgraded from an Adreno 615 to an Adreno 612, too. With that said, Qualcomm assured us that the Snapdragon 675 performs considerably better than the Snapdragon 670. With built-in game enhancements, for example, reduce “janks” or stutters by over 90 percent during gameplay.

    The Comparison of Snapdragon(s)

    So let’s look at the rest of the Snapdragon 675 and detail out how it differentiates from the 670 and the 710 chipsets. So as you can see all the 3 processors use the 6+2 setup. The performance core gets a boost with the A76 instead of the A75. When it comes to GPU the 675 lags behind and as it turns out the 710 has got the best GPU. But as per Qualcomm, they have been tweaking it for a better gaming performance. The differences which can only be pointed out when we will receive a device. It supports the LPDDR4X where the X stands for even more power efficient than the standard LPDDR4.

    Now that they all showcase the same DSPs across is a good thing. With the 250L, it gets the 480fps HD Slo-Mo that will pump-up any camera. The modem is exactly the same as the rest. It’s like Qualcomm didn’t even bother making an upgrade to it. Focusing on the important part, the 675 uses Samsung’s fabrication process. So, this will be built by the looks of it exclusively on Samsung’s fabrication plans.

    Qualcomm’s Worse is actually Better

    So coming back to the GPU here, the 675 boasts an Adreno 612 instead of a 615 or a 616 on its brothers. Qualcomm is actually saying that they have heavily optimized the gaming performance. This does mean that the overall performance will be better as compared to the rest. Qualcomm also suggests that on a list of particular games that they tried, this performs much better. They get 90% less ‘JANKS’, whatever that means.

    gaming on snapdragon 675 chipset, qualcomm

    It might get a better user experience while gaming. Qualcomm is known to make certain tweaks for a better gaming performance and experience. The list of games does suggest that it focuses on a great diversity of games. This is actually good stuff from Qualcomm. Qualcomm also states that it works closely with both mobile game and game engine developers to improve the gaming UX on Android, though this isn’t unexpected given how they’ve collaborated with game studios such as NetMarble for Snapdragon flagship chip releases in recent years.

    Gaming enhancement on snapdragon 675

    Although that the 600 range continues to be very strong with support for 6 cameras, 3 on the front and 3 on the back. So everything from super-res zoom to telephoto capture to specialized Bokeh mode is now available on the 675. So there’s a bunch of things that Qualcomm has put into their processors that make them very useful. They did a great deal of work for the mid-range smartphones. Expecting really strong developments from the manufacturers now. That’s it for now.
