Boost Sport, a Seattle startup that helps basketball teams analyze their performance with video analysis technology, raised a $1.3 million seed round.

Sport and memory go hand in hand — ScienceDaily

If sport is good for the body, it also seems to be good for the brain. By evaluating memory performance following a sport session, neuroscientists from the University of Geneva (UNIGE) demonstrate that an intensive physical exercise session as short as 15 minutes on a bicycle improves memory, including the acquisition of new motor skills. How? Through the action of endocanabinoids, molecules known to increase synaptic plasticity. This study, to be read in the journal Scientific Reports, highlights the virtues of sport for both health and education. School programmes and strategies aimed at reducing the effects of neurodegeneration on memory could indeed benefit from it.

  • The device also features an under-screen selfie camera and a headphone jack.

We’ve grown used to Huawei‘s recent camera array designs which usually take the form of strips, slabs, or circles. Now, it seems the company could be experimenting with a new shape.

Spotted by LetsGoDigital, the phone design displayed in a patent filing features a rear camera array arranged in a cross. It could easily be mistaken for a game controller’s D-pad, but no, these are definitely cameras and sadly won’t be the genesis of a new Huawei gaming phone.

The camera array features four cameras at each end with a flash in the middle. The bottom lens seems to be a zoom lens, as its reminiscent of periscope camera setups we’ve
