Norwegian Researchers Invent Advanced LED Technology

Researchers have successfully developed a light-emitting diodes from nanomaterials. A team of scientists from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) discovered the new nanomaterial application that can emit ultraviolet light. The nanomaterial in question here is graphene, which is popular due to its electrical conductivity and strength. The material is popular in manufacturing electrical circuits and smartphones. However, this is the first time, its application in creating future

Scientists Lay the Foundation for Water-Walking Drones

Scientists at Utah State University’s Splash Lab unveiled a new insight into ‘water skipping’. This common past time of children can make way for walking drones on water in the near future. The researchers studied how elastic spheres interact with water and skip over a tank of water to move progressively. Additionally, they used high-speed cameras to record that elastic spheres gain momentum over a first several impacts. Consequently, this

WiFi Finder App Exposes 2 million passwords

WiFi Finder, a popular app for hotspots exposed over 2 million passwords recently. The app also failed to respond to public concerns about the exposure, despite repeated attempts by news agencies. The app is well-known for its ability to locate hotspots anywhere and also hosts a large public database of public passwords. However, the database also showcased several passwords, geolocation tags and other important information for home-based networks. The app

Mobiles to Double Their Speed, Thanks to MIT researchers

A new study promises to double the speeds of mobiles and computing devices. The study details a new and advanced data compression technique. The technique compresses essential information by half. This makes it easier for apps to access the much-needed information from the main memory. The study was undertaken by MIT researchers who believe it can speed up computation considerably. According to them, accessing the main computer memory is often

Electrostimulation to Improve Working Memory in Adults

The researchers at Boston University demonstrated that electrostimulation could actually improve working memory. Rob Reinhart, assistant professor and John Nguyen a doctoral researcher at the university conducted research. Nature Neuroscience published this study. The National Institutes of Health have supported the theory. The researchers found the electrostimulation improves memory in the 70s, which is indistinguishable from the memory of a 20-year-old. What is Working Memory? The conscious part of the

IBM Introduces Smart Mirror Technology

IBM is working on a ‘smart mirror’ technology for offline retailers. The company announced its plans to collaborate with Vero Moda’s stores. By the looks of it, this is just the beginning. IBM is likely to tie up with more offline retailers in the near future. IBM’s smart mirror technology is a digital interface which empowers customers to try out a wide variety of choices. Think of these as virtual

Netflix forays into airwaves, launches its own comedy radio station

Netflix – the online video streaming brand announces an altogether new move. It is collaborating with US radio streaming platform SiriusXM to launch its comedy radio station. Netflix Is a Joke, as the station is named goes live on April 15. The move is new in two ways: first is, Netflix’s foray into airwaves, and secondly, the streaming company joins hands with another media company. The two entertainment brands in

HiPERCAM Helps Predict The Evolution Of Ancient Stars

Scientists from the University of Sheffield have uncovered a new path to study ancient stars, neutron stars, white dwarfs, and black holes. The new path helped explain the evolution of ancient stars recently, thanks to a high-speed, multicolor camera technology. The technology known as HiPERCAM snaps over 1000 pictures per second. This capability allowed the team to measure both the radius and the mass of a cool subdwarf star, in

Water Grooves to the Tune of Machine Learning

A new study has managed to accurately represent water’s movement. The U.S Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory conducted this experiment. The researchers used a machine learning model to derive characteristics of water using mathematical precision. The team utilized extensive data at their disposal to uncover a highly accurate model. According to Subramanian Sankaranaryanan, an Argonne nanoscientists, the water model proved to be a challenge. There are more than 50

New Compact Laser System can detect Person’s Breath Constituents

Researchers at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) France have come up with a new development to detect constituents of a person’s breath. The constituents can be varied ranging from greenhouse gases, other gases, as well as molecules. The process involves tapping middle infrared light source for the needful. Physically, the new development is a compact system that resembles a tiny suitcase. In terms of constitution, the system is simple
