Not all USB type-C ports are equal: Nine versions of USB-C incoming

Over time, all implementations of the USB type-C receptacles will support 10Gb/s data-rates as well as power delivery capabilities. However, nowadays there is a clear mess with different USB-C versions. The only way to get a device with a USB 3.1 type-C port done right is to get a product that supports Intel’s Thunderbolt 3, the port that truly does it all.

Project Soli chip

The future is here and you can control it with your hand! – Project Soli by Google

Google’s Project Soli brings a new level of interactivity to our world, further enmeshing our digital lives and enriching our interactions with the devices around us.

Soli is a new sensing technology that uses miniature radar to detect touchless gesture interactions.

At only 8mm x 10mm, the chip is small enough to be embedded in smart watches, phones, and all of the typical smart devices we have grown to love.

The key to Soli interactions is the Virtual Tools, which are gestures that mimic familiar interactions with physical tools.
