And the tech highlights of the past week were…

Because our priority is the quality of the information that reaches our readers, we chose some articles published over the past week that reflect the most relevant things that were said in the technological and scientific world at Pplware.

We talked about the release of the new iOS 16, the new Chuwi HiPad Max tablet, various science and technology news, we reviewed the Anycubic Photon D2 3D printer, and much more.


Volkswagen is one of the car manufacturers that has invested the most in converting to electric. The brand wants to replace all its traditional proposals with electric ones and help completely change the market.

Of course, its unified platform facilitates the arrival of new proposals, which have expanded. Now it showed its off-road future, the ID XTREME. This is still just a concept, but it could change the way we drive off-road.

As expected and after several beta versions, Apple now makes iOS 16 available to all iPhone users. There are many news that have been shown since WWDC 2022 last June.

Now we leave a summary of everything that will have new on your Apple smartphone.


It is curious how Jupiter has a preponderant influence on Earth. It has been mentioned several times that Jupiter and its enormous gravitational pull acts as a protective shield for the Earth against potentially destructive asteroids. There are also studies that show how a small change in the orbit of this giant can be destructive to our planet. However, there are also those who see the other side of the coin.

A new study has revealed that Earth is not as habitable as it could be. In fact, it could be even more habitable if Jupiter’s orbit shifted slightly. Let’s understand.

Google has just released the first quarterly beta of the Android 13 operating system, and the developers have already made some interesting discoveries in the code.

The new Android suggests that there will be two new devices: the foldable Google Pixel and a new “Pro” tablet.

The technological world is advancing by leaps and bounds towards an innovation that we have not seen before in movies. This sector is quite different from what it was just a few years ago, and this makes us wonder what awaits us in the future in terms of evolution, especially in the electronic chips segment.

There are several examples that show this same evolution in practice, but now recent information indicates that Nvidia will manage to put 75 billion transistors on its next generation GeForce RTX 4090 Ti graphics card.


With the school year starting, there are still some shopping to do and tablets may be essential for studying. As such, we bring an option, the Chuwi HiPad Max, priced below €200 and with interesting features that meet the needs of most students.

We have always heard that tobacco harms health, especially that of the lungs. In addition, air pollution is also identified as one of the causes of lung cancer. If before the reasons for this were uncertain, now a group of scientists say they have solved this conundrum.

It also alerted the world to the impact of climate change on health.

Flying cars have been in development for several years, although there is still no concrete proposal or market launch forecast. Cars that levitate are another segment apart.

In China, tests are being carried out using Maglev technology and there is a video already showing the results achieved.

Giving shape to virtual models is something that is “priceless”, but the truth is that it is increasingly accessible. If the typical filament FDM 3D printers are the cheapest you can find, although there are several ranges, other 3D printing technologies such as DLP can imply a greater investment… but the result obtained is frankly superior.

Today we bring the review to the Anycubic Photon D2 3D printer, a DLP printer with top technology and probably the most competitive price on the market in its segment.

Soundpods have become a fairly common gadget in society. The fact that they are small, stylish and easy to carry can justify such popularity.

Pplware has recently tested the SoundPods Airia True Wireless from Prozis. Let’s know the features.

Although it has not always been looked upon favorably, tattooing is a goal for many people. However, the pain associated with it can be a drawback at the time of decision. Regarding this obstacle, a new needle technology could be the solution to the problem.

Created for the painless administration of vaccines, it may also be a solution for those who want to tattoo, but fear the pain of the process.

With time and technological evolution, we have come to realize that robots can learn almost anything, as well as do an (almost infinite) variety of things. An example of this is Erica who, despite not having blood in her veins, can laugh during a conversation.

The robot is prepared to have a sense of humor and this achievement is unprecedented.

Logitech recently introduced two exciting new products: the Brio 500 Webcam and the Zone Vibe Headset, designed to respond to the ever-evolving needs of hybrid workers.

Let’s get to know these two Logitech devices better.

Batteries have received a great deal of attention over the past decade. They are the Achilles’ heel in the new paradigm of electrification. However, major advances may be changing this scenario. Harvard-backed Adden Energy is developing a solid-state battery for electric vehicles that fully charges in 3 minutes.

Solid state batteries are safer, allow you to increase energy density and decrease charging time. This seems to be the way.
