Microsoft has a brand-new logo to go with all the brand-spankin’ new products it’s got coming this fall.
Gone are the wavy edges of the old logo. The new design is one squared-away logo: the colors remain the same, and in the same order, but now they’re enclosed in a square box. Equilateral sides, 90-degree angles, ta-da!

A technological breakthrough
Created in 2010, DisplAir offers a true breakthrough in image display and natural interface technology. The DisplAir device projects images onto an ‘air screen’ that can be seen, heard, smelled and touched. Images can be easily configured through touching the images, allowing objects to be moved or played with, and even enabling drawing and virtual modeling.
Bringing magic to users
By providing users with a truly magical experience, DisplAir sets for itself the goal of enhancing brand communications, cultural creation, event experience, interior and exterior design, gaming experience as well as a range of educational and medical activities.
Born in Russia, growing globally
DisplAir is a resident of two of Russia’s leading tech hubs – Skolkovo and Kazan’s IT Park. The company cooperates with leading international tech players and brands as well as with a range of organizations in related fields.
Corporate social responsibility
A totally safe technology, DisplAir is energy efficient and causes no harm to the environment. The startup’s social responsibility has been demonstrated by its support of children’s sports and knowledge sharing through presentations and lectures as well as free training courses on physics and software.
The Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) has met to issue a draft international standard of a new video-compression format that is twice as efficient as current standards.
The meeting, held in Stockholm July 16-20, gathered almost 450 people from 26 countries representing the telecoms, computer, TV and consumer electronics industries to approve and issue a draft standard for High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC). This format will enable compression levels roughly twice as high as the current H.264/AVC standard.
With Mars looming ever larger in front of it, NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory spacecraft and its Curiosity rover are in the final stages of preparing for entry, descent and landing on the Red Planet at 10:31 p.m. PDT Aug. 5 (1:31 a.m. EDT Aug. 6). Curiosity remains in good health with all systems operating as expected. Today, the flight team uplinked and confirmed commands to make minor corrections to the spacecraft’s navigation reference point parameters. This afternoon, as part of the onboard sequence of autonomous activities leading to the landing, catalyst bed heaters are being turned on to prepare the eight Mars Lander Engines that are part of MSL’s descent propulsion system. As of 2:25 p.m. PDT (5:25 p.m. EDT), MSL was approximately 261,000 miles (420,039 kilometers) from Mars, closing in at a little more than 8,000 mph (about 3,600 meters per second).
The data URI scheme is a URI scheme (Uniform Resource Identifier scheme) that provides a way to include data in-line in web pages as if they were external resources. This technique allows normally separate elements such as images and style sheets to be fetched in a single HTTP request rather than multiple HTTP requests, which can be more efficient.
