Rotating Tower Skyscraper

Dubai is famous for its ludicrous lavishness and adding in this a new surprise has come up in the line – Rotating Tower Skyscraper.


Rotating Tower Skyscraper is going to be a building with Dynamic Architecture which is capable of rotating by having a constant motion making  each of its floor to rotate, spin and move around to change its shape constantly… Amazing!!!

This is one of the conjure and practical application of the newest technology made by human that is going to become a reality by the developers in Dubai.

‘Dynamic Architecture’ is the principle used by David Fisher, Florentine architect which has been used for the plan of making ‘Rotating Tower in Motion’ and this type of experiment has never been done before.

Each floor will rotate independent of the other one with a full angle of 360 degrees. Adding to this pioneer, enough electricity will also be produced by the building for itself and even for surrounding buildings also.. How so much electricity will come???

Actually, 48 wind turbines are going to be fitted between each of the floor that will be going to rotate and positioning of the solar panels will be done on the roof of the whole of the building and thus sunlight and wind will be the natural resources for generating this much amount of electricity and this will be the real innovation...

The Rotating Tower is going to consist of 59 rotating floors or more correctly can be called as modules, all of which will have a view of the outside world that will be constantly shifted.

The speed of rotating is 6 m/s so that the rotation will not get noticed by the residents. Designs that will be very complex are going to be made with the constantly changing exterior due to the independent rotation.

The skyscraper will be 313 m in height and will consists of 68 floors including apartments, offices and 6 star hotel and 5 grand villas on the top floor. Wanna have one for you!!!

The ‘Penthouse’ villa will be going to have a garden, Arabian majlis and a swimming pool and special elevators will be there for the transfer of the vehicles from down to top.

For maintaining the tower’s dynamic architecture, an extending platform of heliport will also be made on the top floor which will extend from its shell at the time of landing.

This is unbelievable and astounding phenomenon but will become a reality soon with the help of the newly established technologies...

Forthcoming Revolutionary Computers: Carry PC in your Pocket


Scientists have always come out with some amazing technologies that beyond doubt shape our future; further Technologies have some freaking scientific concept behind it.

 Have a look at this thing:



What comes in your mind?? Pens, that’s obviously pens with cameras, Right?!  A BIG No!! If you think that this pen sort of instrument is just a pen with a camera! Then you are very wrong!

Scientists from Japan have developed a pen sort of device that projects a monitor and a keyboard on any flat surface which can be used as a desktop without any kind of difficulty. All you need then is just a pen with PC inside it, which can easily be slip into your pocket.

: A revolutionary computer in shape of a pen that shapes future and is surely a revolution maker of IT industry. The technology produces both the monitor and the keyboard on any flat surface. This revolutionary computer i.e. pen features Bluetooth technology which in fact makes possible for device to recognize a person’s key-presses and inputs from a flat surface where the device is projecting the visuals of a virtual keyboard.

Such technologies are the key-technologies of this revolutionary and enlightened world. This ultimate gadget is known as P-ISM, it includes a virtual keyboard, camera scanner, a tiny projector, a cellular phone (pen style) and personal ID key. There is actually a set of P-ISM which is connected with one another through Bluetooth technology. The entire set is also connected to the internet through the cellular phone function, thus enables the ultimate omnipresent computing.

Soon you’ll have mini PC in your Pocket. 

BrainGate neural interface system

BrainGate Neural Interface System
"Turning thought into Action"

Have you ever seen a paralyzed person working by his own?, If no, then you are going to see it very soon.Yes… it has been made possible by scientists in a clinical research. They made it possible to command a robotic arm with the thought of the user.




This trial was conducted by the collaborative effort of the Department of Veterans Affairs, Brown University, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and the German Aerospace Center, using an investigational device named as BrainGate neural interface system. The device uses BCI(Brain Computer Interface)system, which enables the control of the robots using brain commands.

According to a report published in Nature.com, two persons who are paralyzed with the stroke, were able to control the robotic arm to reach and grasp the water bottle. For the trial of the brain gate system a very tiny sensor(which is a silicon microelectrode array) with 96 tiny hair-like appendages was implanted in the brain to capture the signals of underlying intentional movement. 



It was the first time when the woman took the trial, and the trial was quite successful. After the trial lead investigator and critical care neurologist at Massachusetts General Hospital, Leigh Hochberg said,"The smile on her face was a remarkable thing to see. For all of us involved, we were encouraged that the research is making the kind of progress that we had all hoped"



The trial was conducted on two individuals to compare them, one was named as S3(58 year old woman shown in Pic.) and the other one was an 66 year old man recognized as T2. According to the report test was successful and the conclusions show that the system is not as fast as it should be and the machine was able to response faster for able-bodied persons as compared to paraplegics.

For sure, BrainGate is a life changing technology and a revolutionary device that gives renewed hope to quadriplegics, paraplegicsand other people who are suffering from spinal cord injuries and strokes, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis etc. Moreover, it has all the potential to revolutionize the way all of our brains work and react.

The persons who want to be a part of the trail can apply for the recruitment of the cadidates, Stanford University and Massachusetts General Hospital are actively recruiting participants for their clinical trials.  Hoping to see it very soon as a part of their life.

Mind Controlled Games

Imagine that you are controlling all of the objects of a game with the help of your thoughts only by relaxing your mind. Have you ever thought of such kind of magic?? But in today’s world it is not a magic rather it has become a reality.


Science fiction has been made a reality by the companies like NeuroSky that are giving users the power to controls screen elements exclusively with your thought control without the help of any mouse or keyboard.

This has been made possible with the help of headsets which are affordable that are able to determine the state of the mind of a person. 

A sensor is present in the headsets that is able to detect the state of your mind and after detecting the signal the analog signal is transferred to the digital signal with the help of a chip and then finally the signal travels wirelessly to the computer.

Mindflex game by Mattel and Star Wars force trainer toy of Uncle Milton Inc. have already incorporated this technology into apparatus of video games and novelty toys.
Mindflex Game, The Secret World, Mind Games, Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind are some of the games that have made use of this technology and are available on the sites of Walmart and Amazon. 

Emotiv Systems has optimized the popular games like Call of Duty and World of Warcraft by providing a package that includes a reading device for brainwaves without the help of mouse or keyboard.

MindHunter, desktop game provides players to fire a weapon if they are able to focus on the game single mindedly.

Mind Controlled Video Games have not reached up to superb effect but they are still cool to be used at this stage. NecoMiMi headset has become very popular among other headsets that is run by mind. Brainwave Headset of Mindwave Mobile is compatible with desktop computers, Android phones and iOS devices.



Behavior modification can be done with the help of this technology which will provide help in relieving the stress of people from their busy schedule.

You don’t need to use any mouse or keyboard or point a laser stick towards the screen, so this technology can be used as an asset for physiologically handicapped persons also.

Until now the devices that has been made are able to read only the difference between relaxed state of mind and simple concentrated state, so there is no danger that these devices can read all of your thoughts if you have a lot of secrets!!!

Further development is taking place in making of more advance products by which the brain activity can be directly translated into the on screen activity. The more advance devices will pick up the brain’s electrical signals and will be able to send them to the connected devces like smartphones by converting those signals into information.

Revolutionary Football capturing Energy


Students Jessica Lin, Julia Silverman, Jessica Matthews, Hemali Thakkaras in engineering class at Harvard have invented a football named 'Soccket' (an energy-capturing soccer ball)  that captures energy created when kicked and converts the captured energy later into electricity, is all set to help provide a power solution for developing countries. Soccket stores energy from play for later use as portable power source in developing countries.  

Bill clinton, Energy power, electricity generation, jessica Mathews, Hemali thkkars, Harvard University

Named as Soccket, the revolutionary ball builds up enough energy to power a light for three hours from just 30 minutes of play. This invention makes itself fairly innovative and cost-efficient and an indeed development for developing countries, costs only a little more than a normal football to produce.

Bill Clinton illustrated the concept, which was the innovation of Harvard students Jessica Lin, Julia Silverman, Jessica Matthews, Hemali Thakkaras and Aviva Presser, as ‘extraordinary’.

“It’s an off-grid solution that gives us a way to bring power and improved quality of life, working capacity and learning capacity,” the Daily Mail quoted Clinton as saying.

The idea unites football, the world’s most popular sport, with the huge need for electrical energy in developing countries - a confounding one in five citizens around the globe are exclusive of power.

This practice of electricity generation from a play uses inductive coil technology, which involves having a metal coil and magnetic slug that goes forwards and backwards.

Currently, Soccket can be used with an ac adapter, designers are hoping to make it enable for other products to be charged by it in the future.

Initial inspiration for this innovation came from hi-tech dance floors technology, which can capture enegy from dancers’ movements.

Read what Development Team said:

“The idea was come together and using art and science pick an issue and try to make it better,” Matthews said.

“We started to think about the time we’d spent overseas and we’d all had this similar experience of seeing kids play. These kids aren’t allowed to be children for very long. They have to deal with very serious issues in their lives every single day.

 “Sometimes giving these kids the ball before we even show them the power generation part is such an amazing thing because they have a ball which doesn’t require inflation - you are telling them that the tooth fairy does exist,” she added.

Silverman further said that apart from noticing the universal love for soccer they also noticed the huge market for safe, sustainable immediate power access.

Lightsaber


Lightsaberis an elegant formal weapon of Jedi Knight for cutting things which cannot be cut using ordinary tools. It can be used both as a fusioncutter and blaster but it is generally used for more sophisticated cutting.

A blade of light that is about 1.33 meters long is projected from the hilt which is polished by metal. Jedi order and Sith counterpart are used for this signature weapon, and blaster bolts can be deflected by both of these.

The blades gets light up from bottom to top with a sound produced and gets faded from top to bottom again with a sound. A sound of loud crackle is produced if the blade of lightsaber is bring into the contact of any object or another lightsaber.

Sound effect will be triggered by each waveand with each crash of one light saber with other lightsaber producing a loud explosion of sound.

Original Star Wars film that has come up in 1997 has used lightsaber as a fictional weapon that has been given the name “laser sword”. After that, at least one lightsaber combat has been featured in every Star Wars movie (expect The Star Wars Special movie) till now date. In the Expanded Universe, some of the exotic saber proof materials has been given a lot of fame.

It is a very harmful tool if used as a fighting tool as it leaves cauterized wounds in flesh that are harmful for everybody. An energy shield or another ligthsaber’s blade can be used to deflect the effect.

ebayhas also sold lightsabers, so we can gauge the popularity of lightsaber by this. Daily life can be made easier by the use of this fabulous plasma weapon by using it for a variety of daily household work like cutting, however until now this technology has been taken for granted.

Lightsaber for household work is a very sophisticated gadget as a refined technology has been used in its principle or working. So, get ready to hang out for more and more of lightsaber’s usage in the upcoming time…

Spy in the Sky: Eyes on You


Technology has made life easier, safe and secure. Along with the benefits technologies enclose, it has always come up with some thrilling stuff.

Military-grade cameras have been developed in US, with more powerful characteristics that they can even see into homes, and can produce four inches wide 3D objects. So now there is going to be a new tech peep into the privacy of your room.

Generally search engine giant will be focusing on this practice by using its spy planes that will be helping in creating 3-d maps with much more detail than its satellite-derived Google Earth images.

Google and Apple will use new hi-tech mapping planes that can film into homes and windows through skylights, putting privacy at risk. The Spy in the Sky Technology is pretty much similar to that used by intelligence agencies in tracking terrorist targets in any country.

Google has admitted to having sent spy planes over cities, and is expecting to have 3D coverage of towns and cities with a combined population of 300 million, however Google has not revealed any locations so far. If talked about Apple, it has acquired a firm using this technology that has been tested on over 20 locations, including London.

Apple revealed its new mapping app for its iPhone and other devices along with privacy safeguard. Current 3D mapping technology relies on aerial images with much lower resolution than the Apple is thought to be using.
Whenever user ‘zoom’ in any image, details tend to be lost because of that poor image quality, all because of aerial images produced by satellite, one of the reason behind  there must be a new consideration of enhancing the quality image production.

Apple would use Google for its mapping services before getting emerged with C3 technologies. Apple actually bought C3 technologies, a 3D mapping company that uses technology developed by Saab AB, the aerospace and defense company.

Sky planes would be flying too quickly and at too great a height to access domestic Wifi networks, and is fairly able to picture around 40 square miles every hour. The next generation of maps is taking us over the garden fence.
This technology is a menacing development that brings the surveillance society a step closer.

Energy Harvesting Knee Strap

Because of the continuous decrement in the energy resources, it is a really necessary to conserve and harvest the energy and for doing this scientists from all over the world are giving the all possible efforts. In addition to the Energy harvesting, a team of researchers from Cranfield University,  University of Salford and the University of Liverpool have invented a energy harvesting knee strap, which will be attached to the outer side of your knee and will convert your mechanical energy into the electrical energy, when you walk with the straps on. 


 

The device consists of an outer ring fitted with 72 plectra and a central hub with four protruding arms. When the blend in the knee takes place the outer ring of the device rotates and plectras pluck energy generating arms which causes vibrations in the arms and causes electricity generation. these arms are not simple are these are some type of piezoelectric devices called Bimorph. these piezoelectric devices are capable of converting mechanical energy into electric energy.



 


At this time the instrument is capable of generating around 20mW of power but it is said that a few improvements can make it to more than 30mW.

Talking about the cost of the device lead author of the study Dr Michele Pozzi said, “There is an on-going project looking at manufacturing a more compact and truly wearable harvester. At the moment we are using precise but cost effective manufacturing techniques for the plectra and casing and anticipate that remaining parts will be moulded industrially, slashing the cost. I'd put a cost tag of less than £10 for each harvester on a large scale production."

this device weighs around 10 kg and it is also considered to reduce the weight of the device and make it wearable for all.

In near future these kind of devices will be able to power up your GPS devices, Heart rate monitors, pedometers and accelerometers and will be ridding all your batteries off.

Intel Next-Gen Ivy Bridge Processors with 3D Transistors


Intel comes again with something new changing the era, a new tri-gate transistor technology installed into its Ivy Bridge processors, plugging the 22 nanometer new chips. Its 22 nanometer chips are the smallest chips ever, featuring sophisticated processor performance and reducing power supply needed. Generally these chips enhance the processor’s performance ratio by 20% using 20% less average power supply.

Intel has officially announced this new achievement. This technology is implemented to enhance processing power while reducing the amount of energy considered necessary. Intel had stated in an interview that this launch will be Intel’s fastest ramp ever.

Intel is also in development of further Dual-Core processors, suitable for thin-laptops, which will be announced later this spring, and looking forward to launch 13 quad-core processors, generally targeting desktop computers.

Traditional planar chip design (left) and Intel's new Tri-Gate technology (right)

With this 3D transistors technology Intel has managed to improve both performance and energy efficiency with least cost increase. What Intel actually did behind this development was, creating a three-dimensional transistor instead of just shrinking the transistor in 2-dimension. Graphics are the key role in advancement for the processors. Ivy brigde supports 4k resolutions and most amazingly features 60% performance boost over the current generation Sandy Bridge chips.

Quantum Teleportation

Have you ever dreamed of being present at two places at the same time??? Don’t get surprised by this as with the rate by which technologies are developing this dream will become a reality one day.




Teleportation is a phenomenon in which a beam of an object or a person is shown in another place by replicating its copy. Quantum teleportation is somehow different from simple teleportation and in this technique, two photons are entangled in such a way that if the state of one of them is altered then there will be alteration in the state of other one automatically as if they were connected with each other. Thus the information can be transported from one place to another.

Scientists of Japan and Australia have used this technique and made a ‘teleporter’ and a ‘paradoxical cat’ with the help of which they are able to achieve a new breakthrough in communication field. The cat term is used to refer to the ‘wave packets’ of light which represents Schrodinger’s Cat, the famous thought experiment.

Wave packets of light or we can say complex set of quantum information or quantum states have been successfully teleported from one place to another without actual transfer of a particle between them.

Actually, a macroscopic beam of light was taken and a quantum superposition is applied on it and is teleported from one place to another. Superposition provides power to quantum computers, and in parallel processing, a same thing needs to be different (like one and zero) at different places. 

High fidelity transmission of a large amount of information like quantum encryption keys with a very high speed is now possible through communications networks. The greatest distance covered with the help of this technology is 143 km over the sea stretch which separates two Canary Islands.

In simple terms, the information which is present in the form of light has been manipulated by destroying it in one spot and recreating at another place, so that it exists in two places at the same time. 

This achievement could pave the way for applying this technology between ground stations and the satellites. Thus, near future is coming up with the means of quantum communications applications as its milestone…

NASA launches NuSTAR "An X-ray Telescope to find Black holes in the space"

NASA started its two year mission of finding black holes and other hardly detectable energetic celestial objects in the space. For this mission, NASA designed an X-Ray telescope.  Talking about the mission, NASA claimed that they will be able to see the things, never seen before.
Project scientist for  Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array( NuSTAR) said, "We are going to open up the high-energy window on the universe". He also said,"It's going to teach us a lot about the universe, from what heats the atmosphere of the sun to understanding black holes." 



This High energy X-rays telescope has been boosted in to the space, boarding on an Orbital Sciences Pegasus rocket(only rocket that launches from the plane) on 13th June, 2012 from Reagan Test Site, Kwajalein Atoll in the Pacific Ocean.  Only Kwajalein Atoll is chosen for the launch because of it is situated very close to the equator. 

Talking about Kwajalein, Omar Baez, launch director for NASA's Launch Services Program said, "It's a very tight community there in Kwajalein". He also siad, "These folks are basically 3,000 miles removed from any conventional civilization. But it's also in the south Pacific, so it's a very nice place to be. I it's as close to what you'd imagine an island in the Pacific is."

NuSTAR is very small in size and weighs around 775 lbs. This High Energy Telescope, NuSTAR did not leave Earth orbit for exploration, It is attached  to  this winged Pegasus rocket in an orbit close to the equator and uses solar system for power consumption.  

After a week in the space, it will expand to a span of 33 foot and focus on the X rays, the spacecraft sees, with the sensors fixed on the ends.

For launching this telescope NASA used air launch from a carrier aircraft(Stargazer) instead of launching from the Launch Pad, Because it is costly to launch from the launch pad than the Air launch. The mission cost is approximated to about $170 million. 

For this mission the whole team of NASA's Chandra and Fermi missions are teamed up with some great officials, for observing the cosmetic objects and finding other energies in the universe. As per the discussions it is confirmed that this mission of NASA, is going to get some hot information, hope they find what they find.

Eye Tracking

Now a day’s eye tracking is a very useful method to collect data. It is easy to collect quantitative data via eye tracking and the data can also be evaluated qualitatively.Eye tracking is the process of measuring eye positions and eye movement and the motion of an eye relative to the head or where we are looking. Eye Tracking technology is used heavily in usability research, Where people are looking on a webpage, and how do their eyes move around it. And this technology will be combined with augmented reality to create a near-invisible and natural user interface called information glasses. And can be integrated with a large TV display to create a natural user interaction.



Eye Tracking allows the user to engage with the display. The user can control the intelligent user interface using their eyes, hand movements, and voice commands.

 There are two things about eye tracking are-


  •  Actionable results and
  •  Easy to understand reporting.
Eye trackers are used in research on the visual system, psychology, cognitive linguistics and product design and it is also a useful method when researching, for example: reading process or traffic behavior while driving. It seems to be clear that the right kind of settlement on the search interfaces matters. So, finally collecting data via eye tracking and analyzing the data is one way to improve usability and searching process on the WWW pages.
