The British form a weapon against unmanned people

Military engineers first developed drones, and then they understood that the opponent might also have such tools, so it is good to have equipment that will allow them to defend themselves. Three British companies are working on the Auds program, which is intended to be a very effective weapon against unmanned vehicles.

Auds (Anti-UAV Defense System) is a defense system designed specifically to combat drones, which can pose a great danger to soldiers and their equipment. It is not a weapon based on missiles or rockets, but on communication distortion. The system is equipped with powerful transmitters that disrupt communication between the dron and the control panel and thus deprive the operator of the machine control.

Auds detects unmanned vehicles with a built-in camera with the ability to record a thermal trace, and then sends a strong signal to them in order to disrupt the signal.

PCs play 711 million people?

It is said that consoles dominate the video game market and, as GTA 5 shows, publishers favor the owners of this device, disregarding PC users. In the meantime, it is a bad policy, as claimed by Intel, worldwide as many as 711 million people play on personal computers.

Such information was from Kirk Skaugen, one of the employees of a well-known processor manufacturer, speaking at the Intel Developer Forum, where he presented new Haswell-based layouts. In his opinion, currently the number of people playing computer games on their PCs is currently around 711 million. It would be roughly every tenth inhabitant of our planet.

It is not known where Skaugen took such statistics, because he did not provide a source to verify these revelations. Therefore, you can doubt their truthfulness. The more likely it is that they have been heavily inflated, because although the PCs are selling quite a lot each year, most of them are purchased for work, not fun.
