Published

A young Chinese engineer spent his weekend of four months designing and building a self-balancing bicycle that also can detect and avoids obstacles. Zhi Hui Jun came up with this innovative idea after he lost his balance and fell off his bicycle one day.

The talented engineer was attracted by the self-driving bicycle that was built by the scientists at Beijing Tsinghua University in 2019. After he suffered a minor accident that left him with injuries to his face, Zhi Hui Jun decided to build his own version of the bicycle.

Zhi Hui Jun designed a magnificent self-balancing bicycled using an advanced system of accelerometers and gyroscopes that can monitor the bicycle’s movements and handling them so that it never loses control or tilts to one side.

Other than that, his system that is powered by a lithium battery allows the bicycle to maintain its balance both when stationary and in motion. The bike will not pull it off balance as it quickly compensates for the weight difference to keep level even if a heavy load is hanging one of the handlebars.

The fact that this self-balancing bike is built by a single person is impressive enough but this young engineer’s creation also features an RGB depth-sensing camera and a LIDAR sensor. It allows the bike to avoid obstacles detected on its route.

The man behind this innovation graduated from China University of Electronic Science and Technology in 2018 and has since been in Huawei’s Young Genius program. He worked in the artificial intelligence program of Oppo, the smartphone developer. He also has a YouTube channel where he posts a series of interesting projects of his own.

After Google, YouTube is the most visited website worldwide with over one billion monthly users. All of its users watch more than one billion hours of videos each day and then as of May 2019, it was estimated that videos were being uploaded at a rate of more than 500 hours of content per minute.

Some people might not know this. Worry no more because this article would help you know more about it. These are 5 hacks that you should try.

1) Videos Can Be Played In Slow Motion

Sometimes YouTube users want to watch videos in slow motion, and there is a hack that allows them to do that. This hack is particularly useful when it comes to videos that show things that happen really quickly, such as sporting events. Those who are using a Chrome browser can watch videos in slow motion by clicking something called the speed selector. This will allow the person to have the opportunity to view the video at a different speed than the one they would normally be viewing it at. But one important fact is that this might not be possible for those who do not use Chrome.

2) Gifs Can Be Made

One little hack that might be surprising to some of YouTube’s users is the fact that they can actually use the website to create gifs. This may sound like a very difficult thing to do, but it is actually really easy, and completing all of the required steps does not take very long. The first step a user needs to take if they have a video they want to use to make one is selecting the right video. After that, they need to type ‘gifyoutube.com’ in the web browser bar. That should take them to a place where they can create a gif from the video.

3) There’s A Cool Way To Fast-Forward And Rewind

There are hacks for many aspects of YouTube, and one of them makes it a little bit easier for people to fast-forward or rewind through the videos they are watching. Some of the videos that are on YouTube can seem a bit longer than they need to be, but users can fast-forward 10 seconds ahead by tapping on the right side of the video two times. This only works if they are using a smartphone or a tablet. The trick to rewinding videos is not much different. The only thing that changes is which side of the screen the user should tap on. In order to rewind a video, they must double-tap the left side.

4) Background Music Can Be Identified

While YouTube itself does not offer users the chance to find out what music is playing in the background of some of the videos on the website, there is one hack people can use for this purpose. Those who wish to find out what music is playing in some of the videos they like to watch can do so by using a service called Mooma. Mooma has a great deal of information about a lot of songs. All users need to do is copy the link to the video, and then paste it into a search bar that can be found on Mooma’s homepage.

5) Have Some Fun Doing Karaoke

YouTube can actually be used for karaoke, which only makes it that much more fun and interesting. There are lots of people who simply sing along to some of their favorite songs on the website (or the app), but this little hack can make that experience even cooler. Those who use the Chrome web browser can download something called the Musixmatch Lyrics extension for YouTube to enhance their karaoke experience. This extension basically allows people to see the lyrics that are in their favorite songs on the screen. But users can also usually find lyric videos for most songs as well, and no extensions are needed for those.
