What are Quantum computers and how are they going to have an impact!

Although the term “quantum computer” might suggest a miniature, sleek device, the latest incarnations are a far cry from anything available in the Apple Store. In a laboratory just 60 kilometers north of New York City, scientists are running a fledgling quantum computer through its paces — and the whole package looks like something that...

‘Prescription video games’:Games that are good for your brain!

A new episode of Next Level explores whether certain video games can improve cognitive function “Brain-training” games have been a controversial topic in recent years, especially after a group of scientists and researchers published an open letter in 2014 saying there is “very little evidence” that training your brain in one area or on one task offers...

Drones that drive!CSAIL team’s system of quadcopters that fly and drive suggest another approach to developing flying cars.

Being able to both walk and take flight is typical in nature — many birds, insects, and other animals can do both. If we could program robots with similar versatility, it would open up many possibilities: Imagine machines that could fly into construction areas or disaster zones that aren’t near roads and then squeeze through...

Intel Atom:Intel Makes Its Smallest Chip Ever.

A completely reimagined computer chip from Intel drinks 10 times less power–and puts the full Internet in the palm of your hand. Designing a microprocessor like the Atom, Intel’s smallest chip ever, is like planning a city so tiny it could fit into a single bacteria. First, architects map out which routes go where so that millions of... Continue Reading →

NASA’s Ten-Engine Electric Plane Completes Successful Flight Test!

Imagine a battery-powered plane that has 10 engines and can take off like a helicopter and fly efficiently like an aircraft. That is a concept being developed by NASA researchers called Greased Lightning or GL-10. The team, at NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, is looking at the idea initially as a potential unmanned... Continue Reading →

The women who was ‘Hired As A Computer’.

Sue Finley, 80, has worked at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge for more than 50 years. She was first hired in 1958 as a “computer,” an employee who calculated mathematical equations, such as rocket or spacecraft trajectories, by hand. She has worked on a number of projects throughout her career, including the Venus Balloon Project, Mars... Continue Reading →

Revolutionary Tech:The ‘Mine Kafon Drone’.

'The Mine Kafon Drone' (MKD) offers an innovative solution to land mine removal, providing a reliable demining system that delivers accurate updates and information on mine clearing operations. It flies over dangerous areas to map, detect and detonate landmines from a safe distance. The drone works autonomously equipped with three separate interchangeable robotic extensions. These three methodologies combined makes the MKD... Continue Reading →
