If you holler at someone across your yard, the sound travels on the bustling movement of air molecules. But over long distances your voice needs help to reach its destination-help provided by a telephone or the Internet. Atoms don’t yell, but they can share information through light. And they also need help connecting over long distances.
Every year, millions of doses of life-saving vaccines are destroyed due to temperature breaches en route or while in storage. Now researchers say they&rsqu
Eventually, if it takes off, orbital fabrication could revolutionize the way we make things. Read on:
There’s a new type of storage device which many tech corporations have been diving into in secret for the past few years, which Hitachi newly came out with a technology they are developing which is fundamentally a sheet of Quartz Glass, which could possibly save data for up to 300 Million Years!
If you didn’t know anything about storage devices that we at present have, but anything from records, CD’s, USB sticks, magnetic tape, none of these can even lay a finger on this new, very inspiring technology.
(Phys.org) -Having the photoreceptors at the back of the retina is not a design constraint, it is a design feature. The idea that the vertebrate eye, like a traditional front-illuminated camera, might have been improved somehow if it had only been able to orient its wiring behind the photoreceptor layer, like a cephalopod, is folly. Indeed in simply engineered systems, like CMOS or CCD image sensors, a back-illuminated design manufactured by flipping the silicon wafer and thinning it so that light hits the photocathode without having to navigate the wiring layer can improve photon capture across a wide wavelength band. But real eyes are much more crafty than that.
Science fiction is filled with giant robots that people can control like extensions of their own bodies. Dan Granett wants to build one for real, as Gizmodo originally reported. Granett, a former…
