CASSETTES COMING BACK IN A NEW WAY

Cassette tapes are dead. Long live cassette tapes! The music staple of the late 20th century is making a comeback in the form of big data storage. That's right, kids, the same thing that made the mix tape possible in the 80s could hold tomorrow's pictures and mp3 files.


Fuji Film and IBM have created a prototype cassette measuring 4x4x1 inches that can hold up to 35 terabytes of information, or about 8,750,000 songs. The data is stored on a strip of magnetic tape made from particles of barium ferrite. But don't bust out your "Saved By the Bell" torrents to save them on tape just yet.

KINETIC CHARGER MAKES YOU A POWER SOURCE

Just the other day, I read yet another article about the dangers of a sedentary lifestyle. I was sitting while I read it. Don't judge. Obviously, being active is good for our health, but what if it was good for our gadget's battery life? A concept device from design studen Toby Blake uses movement to power up your phone.

NANOSCIENCE EXPLAINED: GOTTA-SEE VIDEO

Nanoscience is small science with huge possibility. "Nano-" is a prefix that means "a billionth." Basically just recognize that when we talk about nanoparticles, nanobots, nanoscience, nanotubes or nanotech, this stuff is REALLY tiny. Nanoscience has been around a while, but people aren't necessarily aware of what research and applications are being explored. Take a quick tour of nanoscience here and learn enough to make a few declarative statements

'Curiosity Rover’ Ultimate UAV With 17 Cameras

'Curiosity Rover’ Ultimate UAV With 17 Cameras
One of the best parts of having NASA’s Curiosity rover on Mars is the incredible images that it’s going to start beaming back to viewers on Earth.

After the probe’s safe landing, it sent several pictures of its wheels on the ground to mission control to let engineers know that everything was okay. But these dusty, close-up images cannot compare to the snapshots that the rover will soon be taking.

WI-FI SEES MOVEMENT THROUGH WALLS

Your Wi-Fi router helps out in a lot of situations, mostly pertaining to surfing the Web for info or connecting with other people. However, researchers from the University College in London have created a detector that uses Wi-Fi to detect movement through a brick wall that’s one-foot thick.

Wi-Fi radio signals are found in 61 percent of households nationwide. Researchers Karl Woodbridge and Kevin Chetty developed a suitcase-size device that can use these signals along with the Doppler effect to detect movement.

'SUPER FALCON' SUB AIMS TO FLY UNDERWATER


A new submarine could pull off underwater maneuvers similar to aircraft flying stunts during a Lake Tahoe expedition in October. The makers of the DeepFlight Super Falcon hope to raise $45,000 through the crowdfunding website Kickstarter to test the boundaries of submarine technology.

The two-seater submersible resembles a sleek missile or aircraft with wings, tail surfaces and ailerons -- the brainchild of Graham Hawkes and Hawkes Ocean Technologies based near San Francisco. Such a sleek design allowed the Hawkes team to dream big and set the goal of pulling off a full underwater loop similar to what World War I fighter pilots pulled off during aerial dogfights.

Japanese scientists create first swimming robot




Tokyo University of Technology has created a 'Swumanoid' robot using a 3D scanner to perfectly map a human swimmer's physique, which has perfected the back-stroke and tries freestyle swimming.

Apart from life-saving ambitions, the Swumanoid can be useful in helping research into swimming.

The team, led by associate professor Motomu Nakashima, hopes that eventually robots like the Swumanoid can act as robot lifeguards, patrolling our shores and helping swimmers in distress, the 'Daily Mail' reported.

ARTIFICIAL JELLYFISH MADE FROM RAT CELLS


Aside from Frankenstein, previous attempts to make synthetic life have focused on genes. Geneticist Craig Venter and his colleagues, for example, announced in 2010 that they had created a one-celled creature by inserting an artificial genome in an existing cell that reproduced.

Now a separate team of scientists from Harvard University and the California Institute of Technology have built an eight-armed jellyfish by inserting muscle cells from a rat into a sheet of silicone.

Thought Transfer Attitude



Thought is a most power full object in the world. Every great Invention start from   a simple thought but how a thought is going to be effective? When we think something about new Idea then lots of reasonable and conditional small thoughts will come into our mind. These small thought creates a big Idea which is basically a filtered thought by reasons and conditions. It is still not effective because it is only in our mind. If we want our imagination to become true then we have to transfer our thought into the mind of someone who is a right person for this. Here we need a positive thought transfer attitude.

FLIP, THE VERTICAL SHIP

Filp

FLIP, which is owned by the U.S. Navy and operated by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, was designed by Scripps researchers Fred Fisher and Fred Spiess, who wanted a platform that was both more stable and quieter than conventional research vessels, in order to facilitate their study of sound waves underwater. The design they came up with looked less like a conventional ship or more like a baseball bat, with a large handle grip and a long barrel.

MIT Develops New Radar Technology: Military Could See Through Walls

The ability to see through walls is no longer the stuff of science fiction. Thanks to new radar technology developed at MIT's Lincoln Laboratory a system has been built by researchers that can see through walls from some distance away, giving an instantaneous picture of the activity on the other side. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Lincoln Laboratory has presented new radar technology that would allow humans to see through a solid wall. The device is 8½ feet long. It consists of an array of antennae arranged in two rows -- including eight signal receiving elements on the top and 13 signal transmitting elements at the bottom.

HUBBLE DISCOVERS GALACTIC GHOSTS



The Hubble Space Telescope has captured images of three odd galaxies that may help scientists solve a 13 billion-year cosmic mystery.

The galaxies are so old and faint that astronomers nicknamed them "ghost galaxies" in a description. The objects are among the smallest and faintest galaxies near our own Milky Way galaxy, researchers said.

TOP UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLES TAKING FLIGHT

Perching UAVs 

Earlier this year, Stanford University researchers created a model-plane sized unmanned aerial vehicle that can fly directly to a wall and then land vertically on it, superhero style. Miniature spines on its feet allow the vehicle to cling to a surface. The feet, with help from the propeller, can be manipulated so the UAV walks the wall to get a better view.

“I am impressed with the engineering on the aircraft and the iterations they went through to get that configuration,” Kochersberger says. “It’s going to lead to new technologies.”

What are the Strategies used in Debt Funds?


Debt funds are the mutual fund that will ultimately help you to invest largely in debt instruments. Some of the prominent debt instruments include the corporate debt, government securities, or bonds. The debt instruments are likely to be issued under the guidance of the government, government agencies, corporations, and even by the private companies. Like with all types of investments, debt funds are also subject to the market risks, and the most prominent risks which affect the value of debt funds include interest rates, exchange rates, inflation, besides the banking policies of the central bank.

World's Top 10 Hackers


World's Top 10 Hackers


10. Eric Corley
Better known as a pseudonym from George Orwell’s book 1984, Emmanuel Goldstein, Eric Corley was a well-known figure when it came to hacking, especially in the 1980 and 90s. In 1999 he went to court for sharing DeCSS codes and a method to download it, a program that was able to decrypt content on an encrypted DVD. His court case stands as the first to test the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Corley was told to remove the program from his website. Though the main link was removed, almost 500 other websites had provided their own links to access and download the program. To continue this motion, Corley posted a banner stating that he encouraged mirroring of the link. And even today, you can still easily find the program. Now Corley lives in N.Y.C. and hosts a radio show called Off the Hook on WBAI as well as Brain Damage on Stony Brook University’s WUSB. He also runs a magazine named 2600: The Hacker Quarterly that provides information about phreaking and basic hacking. In 2001, he took part in a demonstration against the jailing of Kevin Mitnick (see #1) and in 2004 was arrested for videotaping the demonstration and was charged with disorderly conduct.
