You can FART at other cars soon, Tesla’s Elon Musk Says – WATCH =>

Elon Musk has revealed that Tesla drivers will soon be able to choose what noise their car makes when they press the horn – with fart and goat sounds among the options available.

Sharing the news on Twitter , the billionaire entrepreneur used the “dashing away” emoji – often used to signify farting – and the goat emoji to hint at the forthcoming horn sounds.
 

He also revealed that the fully electric vehicles will be able to play “movement sounds” as they’re driving along, to alert pedestrians to their presence.

Glassless Edible Whiskey – WATCH => The Glenlivet Capsule Collection

October 2nd 2019 – The Glenlivet, the original Speyside single malt Scotch, has unveiled a ‘Capsule Collection’ of glassless cocktails that redefine the way whisky is traditionally enjoyed. Launched during London Cocktail Week in partnership with cocktail legend Alex Kratena, the limited-edition The Glenlivet ‘Capsule Collection’ is a range of delicious whisky cocktails served in a seaweed-extract casing, one of nature’s most renewable resources.

A first of its kind for a spirit brand, the edible capsules are 23ml in size, fully biodegradable and provide the perfect flavour-explosion experience. Enjoying them is simple, the capsules are popped in the mouth for an instant burst of flavour, and the capsule is simply swallowed. There is no need for a glass, ice or cocktail stirrer.

Google ‘Quantum Supremacy: From 50 trillion hours to 30 seconds AND From 10,000 years to 200 seconds

In a new scientific paper, Google researchers claim for the first time to have demonstrated “quantum supremacy,” where a quantum computer outperforms a traditional one.

“While our processor takes about 200 seconds to sample one instance of the quantum circuit 1 million times, a state-of-the-art supercomputer would require approximately 10,000 years to perform the equivalent task,” the researchers said.

Google’s quantum computer, dubbed “Sycamore,” contained 53-qubits, or “quantum bits,” a measure of the machine’s potential power. The team scaled back from a 72-qubit device, dubbed “Bristlecone,” it had previously designed.

The researchers estimate that performing the same experiment on a Google Cloud server would take 50 trillion hours—too long to be feasible. On the quantum processor, it took only 30 seconds, they said.
