For Sale – Lenovo Thinkpad X240 (i5 2.5Ghz, 8GB Ram, 180GB SSD, 4G LTE, 2 Batteries, Windows 10) – Reduced to £125 delivered

05/01/2020 ** Reduced to £130 delivered **

Having a tech clearout and this Lenovo is up for sale as its not being used.

This Lenovo x240 comes with two internal batteries and a working 4G LTE module for internet access where there is no Wifi (options that are not normally found on these laptops.)

It’s in good overall condition for its age (one of the better ones actually) but does show signs on the plastics as you would expect.

The trackpad and keyboard are in great condition as you can see.

It has the following spec:

12.5″ 1366×768 matt screen (not IPS – In excellent condition apart from two small pressure marks on the right hand side – see pictures)
i5 4300U @ 1.9Ghz
8GB Ram
180GB Intel SSD0E38417
Internal battery 1 – Genuine Lenovo P/N 45N1108 – 11.1V 1.93Ah battery
Internal battery 2 – Genuine Lenovo P/N 45N1124 – 11.1v 2.09Ah 24w battery
Both batteries give a combined life of anywhere between 4hrs to 6hrs and maybe more depending on use
Fingerprint reader
4G LTE Module
Wireless & BT
Windows 10 pro official (upgraded from the Win 8 Pro it came with)

Comes with official Lenovo charger and has been a great workhorse over the years. Still one of the best laptop keyboards around too.

Please note… apart from the usual cosmetic marks and bumps you would expect from a laptop this old, there are two small pressure marks on the screen, bottom right. As you can see from the images, they are not visible on a black screen, but are visible on white screens. I have shown the two extremes here, so screen colours between those two will show differing variations of the impact of the pressure marks. The white screenshot shows the worst case scenario, so if you are OK with that then there will be no surprises as that is as bad as it gets.

Also, any lines you see on the images of the screen are due to the usual camera / screen htz issues. This screen is mint apart from the two small pressure marks as I have tried to show.

Looking for £125 including insured delivery (was £135)

Wanted – 3TB / 4TB WD Red

I’d be wanting £48 delivered. If price is acceptable let me know & I will run a test but sure its all fine.

Looking at below its only been powered on 69 hours! It was used as a Backup drive (then stored to safe) which would explain the light use.

Has completed a Quick Test OK using WD Lifeguard tool. I’ve set it running an extended test (estimating ~6 hrs to complete at the moment).

Why Would Prosthetic Arms Need to See or Connect to Cloud AI?

Based on “Connected Arms”, a keynote talk at the O’Reilly AI Conference delivered by Joseph Sirosh, CTO for AI at Microsoft. Content reposted from this O’Reilly Media website.

There are over 1 million new amputees every year, i.e. one every 30 seconds – a truly shocking statistic.

The World Health Organization estimates that between 30 to 100 million people around the world are living with limb loss today. Unfortunately, only 5-15% of this population has access to prosthetic devices.

Although prostheses have been around since ancient times, their successful use has been severely limited for millennia by several factors, with cost being the major one. Although it is possible to get sophisticated bionic arms today, the cost of such devices runs into tens of thousands of dollars. These devices are just not widely available today. What’s more, having these devices interface satisfactorily with the human body has been a massive issue, partly due to the challenges of working with the human nervous system. Such devices generally need to be tailored to work with each individual’s nervous system, a process that often requires expensive surgery.

Is it possible for a new generation of human beings to finally help us break through these long-standing barriers?

Can prosthetic devices learn to adapt to us, as opposed to the other way around?

A Personalized Prosthetic Arm for $100?

In his talk, Joseph informs us about how, using the combination of:

  • Low-cost off-the-shelf electronics,
  • 3D-printing, and
  • Cloud AI, for intelligent, learned, personalized behavior,

it is now becoming possible to deliver prosthetic arms at a price point of around $100.

Joseph takes the smartARM as an example of such a breakthrough device. A prototype built by two undergraduate students from Canada who recently won the first prize in Microsoft’s Imagine Cup, the smartARM is 3D-printed, has a camera in the palm of its hand and is connected to the cloud. The magic is in the cloud, where a computer vision service recognizes the objects seen by the camera. Deep learning algorithms then generate the precise finger movements needed to grasp the object near the arm. Essentially, the cloud vision service classifies the object and generates the right grip or action, such as a pincer action to pick up a bunch of keys on a ring, or a palmar action to pick up a wineglass. The grip itself is a learned behavior which can be trained and customized.

The user of the prosthetic arm triggers the grip (or its release) by flexing any muscle of their choice on their body, for instance, their upper arm muscle. A myoelectric sensor located in a band that is strapped over that muscle detects the signal and triggers the grip or its release.

Simple, Adaptable Architecture

The architecture of this grip classification solution is shown below. The input to the raspberry pi on the smartARM comes from camera and the muscle sensor. These inputs are sent to the Azure Custom Vision Service, an API in the cloud which has been trained on grip classifications and is able to output the appropriate grip. This grip is sent back to an Arduino board in the smartARM which can then trigger the servo motors that realize that grip in the physical world, i.e. as soon as the smartARM gets the signal to do so from the muscle sensor.

This is an adaptable architecture. It can be customized to the kinds of movements you want this arm to generate. For instance, the specific individual using this prosthetic can customize the grips for the objects in their daily life which are the ones they care the most about. The muscle sensor -based trigger could be replaced with a speech trigger, if so desired.

Summary

AI is empowering a new generation of developers to explore all sorts of novel ideas and mashups. Through his talk on “Connected Arms”, Joseph shows us how the future of prosthetic devices can be transformed by the power of the cloud and AI. Imagine a world in which all future assistive devices are empowered with AI in this fashion. Devices would adapt to individuals, rather than the other way around. Assistive devices will become more affordable, intelligent, cloud-powered and personalized.

Cloud AI is letting us build unexpected things that we would scarcely have imagined.

Such as like an arm that can see.
