thanks for this video ... my questions that if touch using by any conduct material..its should be work right... but i tried operate to the screen by conducting material like bold screw
its dosn,t works..
I have nerve issues in my extremities. After having a nerve conduction study done on my muscles i learned that my muscles dont produce much electricity. Is this why sometimes my numb fingertips don’t seem to make the connection i am trying to make on a touchscreen?
People love saying humans are stupid, but I'm often baffled by how clever human inventions have become. Figuring out electricity started a massive revolution, but from simple circuits of DC power, to AC power, to cathodes and diodes, onward to transistors and microchips it's incredible. And that's only the beginning 0.0....If you have taken the time to learn about how transistors work, I encourage it. It's impossibly clever and without them cell phones wouldn't exist.
Who on Earth sweats like THAT!? (see 2:53)... *remembers Airplane!* nevermind...
BTW, My fingertip hurts already for so many tapping and slidding on my smartphone, well, more like they got very sensitive despite I always tap softly. I know you said at 2:28 that the electricity doesn't flow through the finger, but my fingers tell a really different story after 2 years of constantly using my smarthphone...
Hi, could you explain how floating touch screens work, the touch screens seen on Sony smartphones where a user can use the screen from any glove or can even interact the screen without touching it but hovering the finger over it???
The miners are interested in finding a nonce which will create a hash with certain characteristics. Lastly, they have to find a random value that they included in the header, which makes the computed hash over that header a value below a particular target. In other words, they do not have to agree to change the protocol. Though there are a few gold diggers attempting to fill their pockets and certain projects that aren`t viable and shouldn`t be encouraged in any way. For users running a complete node, it is a fairly painless procedure to upgrade the software to the newest version. The process of locating a new block to extend the blockchain is known as mining. Proof-of-Work systems utilize cryptographic hashing algorithms to create the action of mining a block a complicated computation. Our software is totally incompatible with altcoins. Changes and modifications to how that it works need to be approved by consensus and every CPU gets a vote. To start with, it`s essential to realize that hardware wallet users control entirely their private keys. Whether you`re bullish or bearish on Bitcoin Gold, you ought not lose your coins as a result of careless mistakes! On the 1 hand, it may result in making a coin that solves all the pending issues. There`s no currency or digital asset named Bitcoin Core. Bitcoin Cash increases the range of transactions that may be processed per block. You could send any quantity of money, any place in the Earth, almost at no cost. You`ve made some great money already on the market, but you want more. For a wealthy individual, BTC`s price premium may be viewed as a plus. For someone without lots of money, BCH`s low price may look like a great deal for Bitcoin. If you have some concerns about the worth of Bitcoin after all forks, you need to be ready for a drop. The distinction is that not all of these suffer the chain split. The primary problem is Bitcoin imposes a hard limit on the magnitude of a block, the location where transaction information becomes stored. The end result is many straightforward wallets, called SPV wallets and very commonly found on your phone, will be quite confused about which chain is Bitcoin. In Bitcoin, the most important reason is known as the network effect.
