What is the current rage in the field of automobiles? What is the future of the automobile market? Both these questions point towards one answer and that is Electric Vehicles, more specifically Electric Cars. It might be tough to grasp but according to facts published on hybridcars, almost 2,95,000 individuals of the U.S have bid a farewell to the traditional automobiles. Consumers have significantly shifted to the world of EV’s, i.e. Electric Vehicles. Electric Cars not only provide a smoother user experience with instant torque and...
Speech synthesis – the process of on-demand, artificial way of translating your speech into any global language has been here for a long time now. The process, however, is not capable to match the natural voice interaction like the Communicator in Star Trek. BabelOn, a San Francisco based startup has come up with a new innovation in speech synthesis technology. With the help of this innovation, you can translate anything that you speak in your own voice. ‘Speak Local Sound Global’ – the punch line the voice synthesis startup uses to ...
Mobile technology has advanced so rapidly within the last few years that it stuns us. Around a decade back, smartphones did not exist, laptops were heavier, and PCs were bulky. But in a very short time span, gadgetry and the tech have gone thinner and lighter; all that we imagined is now a reality. There is, however, still one spot that bulges out in every smartphone or other such gadgets – the camera lens. The Caltech lensless camera is a surprising development: a camera that replaces the lens with OPA. When we refer to a camera, wh...
We have seen the Charlton Heston classic ‘Planet of the Apes’ and now the world will witness the ‘Planet of the Apps’, Apple’s new reality show. Yes, a strikingly similar name, but this name exhibits sarcasm on our generation dependent on technology. The irony here is we have advanced from Apes to people who cannot live without Apps. Is our planet really turning into the Planet of the Apps? There is a sure-shot possibility of that because where once reality shows were about dance, acting, and cookery skills; now it will revolve around...
Facebook is not just a stand-alone app; it has a family of apps. Have you ever seen that pictures you post on Instagram can also be uploaded on Facebook with just one click? Also, you can have conversations with your Facebook friends using Messenger. Even though these are different apps, they belong to the same family, the Facebook family. Seemingly, the Facebook family is now moving towards a new feature, the cross platform notifications. Facebook Family getting Intertwined for Notifications All the three apps are personally te...
We have got electric cars, smaller cars, and cars with a better gas mileage. What we haven’t seen yet is some kind of technological evolution with transportation. While a lot of ‘technological’ fixes have been given little to some amount of attention, not all of them have gained repute for ushering in green revolution. Every day, engineers are taking a different route, designing more environmentally sustainable modes of transportation that may overturn long-held notions greener, efficient traveling. This year, we have some of the most...
If you think that Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be clubbed with the human brain only in sci-fi movies like Ex Machina, The Matrix, or Ghost in The Shell; CEO Elon Musk is going to prove that wrong, in the near future. The multi-billionaire is planning to back a venture working on the brain-computer interfaces named ‘Neuralink’; according to reports on the Wall Street Journal (WSJ). From aerospace to electric vehicles (EV’s), the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla now wants to merge the human brains with computers, by launching Neuralink. V...
Imagine a world with computers that run 1,00,000 times faster than the current ones! It can drastically change lives and every aspect related to humanity. Such computers can help discover planets and galaxies, diagnose diseases, and do many tasks earlier than usual. Interestingly, a team of researchers; including some engineers from the University of Michigan, say that they have found a way to achieve this, with electrons and small laser pulses. In Science, ‘femtosecond’ means one quadrillionth of a second. This team of researchers h...
A Press Release by IBM states that it has created the world’s smallest magnet. It has been done using a single atom and stored one bit of data on it. At present, the hard-disk drives use around 1,00,000 atoms to store a single bit of data. This new research helps to read and write one-bit data on one atom. It creates possibilities for developing denser storage devices that are significantly small. For example, such devices may enable the storage of almost 35 million songs on a credit card sized device. IBM’s Research on Single Atom...
