Since archaic time, man has wanted to see and hear things far smaller, subdued than could be perceived with the naked eye. Although, the first use of the lens remains a bit of a mystery, it’s believed that the use of lenses is quite modern than previously thought. If you look at it, it is infallibly believed that two Dutch spectacle-makers, Hans and Jansen Zacharias invented the first compound microscope in the 1590s. Over the past centuries, microscopes have revolutionized our world. They reveal tiny objects, structures and life t...
The grandeur of mankind’s ambitious plans of space travel and settlement has us reaching for the outer planets. A month ago, the White House earmarked over $17.7 billion for unmanned space missions that might answer the existential question about life beyond Earth. This comes two years after the U.S. National Research Council’s Planetary Science Decadal Review put out its 10-year recommendation for NASA’s planetary exploration program. The report had ranked exploration of Jupiter’s icy Moon Europa as the highest-priority mission. From...
In April 2015, a prototype known as FINDER, NASA’s long-range heartbeat detector was used to find and save four men under ten feet of rubble in Nepal. A month later, an improved version of the detector was tested by Virginia Task Force one. NASA is banking on hopes of using the technology in outer space and in hospital emergency rooms on the planet. The technology behind the detector has been around for quite some time. It relies on microwave radar signals to detect motion by analyzing the resulting patterns that arise when signals...
Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT), a research company committed to building the revolutionary Hyperloop transit system, inspired by Elon Musk’s idea of making people travel in high-speed tubes, has secured a target launch date of 2016 to build a working full-scale demo version of the Hyperloop. It has signed a deal to build a five mile facility in New Central, California, which is a model town that was envisioned to be a 150,000-resident solar-powered city. The Hyperloop facility will be developed by a local developer Qwa...
The world is rapidly changing and mega-cities are now evolving into vast mega-regions. By 2050, over 70 percent of the world’s population will be urban dwellers. This means that people are going to need world-class transportation, energy and housing. Unless, we want our kids to live in a city that is as smog-choked as China is, transportation will have to be emission free. Taiwanese start-up Gogoro, founded by former HTC Chief Innovation Officer Luke Horace, wants to provide products that will change the way people use energy in hu...
As more and more coastal cities face growing challenges ranging from rising sea levels to population density problems, more and more urban planners are switching to building unconventional means as a solution. A Japanese company recently flashed in headlines for coming up with a very novel proposal – building underwater cities - cities of the future! A futuristic concept for a self-sufficient city, The Ocean Spiral, has been designed to float amidst the eeriness of the sea and uses the ocean to run infrastructure that could support...
