Scientists Create Clock that Won’t Lose or Gain a Second for 15 Billion Years

Posted by GarageLab on April 24, 2015 at 5:30am 0 Comments

A team of scientists from National Institute of Standards and Technology and the University of Colorado in Boulder have created a new type of atomic clock that makes the clock currently considered the gold standard for timekeeping look highly inaccurate. The new clock is an optical lattice clock that uses strontium atoms to tell time and is accurate enough to not gain or lose a second in 15 billion years

This box can literally transmit human emotions over-the-air

Posted by GarageLab on April 23, 2015 at 12:35pm 0 Comments


Dr. Marianna Obrist and the University of Sussex team researching this technology refer to their creation as Ultrahaptics. To receive a transmission, a user simply places his or her hand a few inches above a grid in the middle of the rather plain-looking white box you see above. Bursts of air shot through the grid stimulate different areas of the palm and trigger an emotional response.

This Is NASA's First 3D-Printed Full-Scale Copper Rocket Engine Part

Posted by GarageLab on April 22, 2015 at 6:20am 0 Comments

It may look like some kind of ancient urn, but you're looking at something rather more advanced. In fact this is the first full-scale copper rocket engine part made by NASA using 3D printing techniques.

The component is a combustion chamber liner-a part that operates at extreme temperatures and pressures. In fact, its function means that creating it was far from straightforwards.

The part was made using a laser sintering technique, which scans a laser beam over copper powder, selectively melting it-after which it cools to form solid copper. Over the course of 10 days and 18 hours, 8,255 layers of copper powder were fused to form the final result.

Indian Origin Researchers Creating Camera To Gauge Health By Analyzing Face

Posted by GarageLab on April 20, 2015 at 2:15pm 0 Comments

Washington, April 7 (ANI): Assessing a patients' vital signs can now be easier than before, as scientists are developing a camera that can monitor health just by looking at a person's face.

Rice University researchers are developing a highly accurate, touch-free system, DistancePPG, that can measure a patient's pulse and breathing just by analyzing the changes in one's skin color over time. Though the technique isn't new, the researchers are making it work under conditions that have so far stumped earlier systems.

A Periscope for Cyclists: Pedi-Scope

Posted by GarageLab on April 17, 2015 at 6:30am 0 Comments

Mike Lane’s Pedi-Scope is a simple analog device that will free cyclists of squealing from their neck pain. Squeaking from the freaking. Oinking from the boinking. The Pedi-Scope straps to the front of your bicycle and shows the view up front on a horizontal glass display, letting you see what’s ahead while you’re looking down.

Mike says he’s an avid cyclist himself but was getting sick of the neck and shoulder pains arising from the normal riding position. Sure, he could put his head down, but then his entire body would be in danger. When he saw a pair of prism glasses online,…

Engineering team invents a camera that powers itself

Posted by GarageLab on April 15, 2015 at 5:00am 0 Comments

A research team led by Shree K. Nayar, T.C. Chang Professor of Computer Science at Columbia Engineering, has invented a prototype video camera that is the first to be fully self-powered—it can produce an image each second, indefinitely, of a well-lit indoor scene. They designed a pixel that can not only measure incident light but also convert the incident light into electric power. The team is presenting its work at the International Conference on Computational Photography at Rice University in Houston, April 24 to 26.

Artificial bee brain used for vision system of a drone

Posted by GarageLab on April 13, 2015 at 7:30pm 0 Comments

The Green Brain Project is located in Sheffield, England, and it has one key focus: to simulate a functioning honeybee brain in software. Using a mix of neuroscience modeling, decision theory, parallel computing, and robotics, they are working towards that goal. So far, they’ve got the vision and olfactory (sensory) systems working in basic form, and they’ve already been hooked up to a drone.

Recreating an entire brain, however simple, is a massive undertaking and will take many years to achieve. But as different parts of the brain come online they can be put to good use with surprisingly positive results. In the case of this drone, the artificial bee brain’s…

HemaVision Smart Thermal Imager Actually Tells You What that Cool (or Hot) Image Means

Posted by GarageLab on April 9, 2015 at 1:37pm 1 Comment

HemaImaging it’s working on the HemaVision, a standalone thermal imager that will be able to give you measurements in real-time and tell you if that’s within normal parameters.

The HemaVision has an 82×62 thermal sensor, a 5MP CMOS sensor, a 320×240 touchscreen, an SD card slot, a Wi-Fi chip and a battery that lasts up to 4h per charge. The company is working with industry experts to create apps for specific instances. The mockups below show three sample apps: one for monitoring heat-related problems in electrical equipment, one that looks for hidden pockets of water and one that looks at insulation problems.

New Liquid Metal Inkjet Printing Can Produce Flexible Circuitry

Posted by GarageLab on April 8, 2015 at 6:26am 0 Comments

Creating truly flexible electronics requires applying super-thin layers of conducting materials to already bendable materials-but doing so accurately is difficult. Now, a new form of inkjet printing can allow scientists to deposit thin layers of liquid metal into neat circuits.

The researchers, from Purdue University, had the bright idea that liquid metal could be applied via an inkjet nozzle-but sadly liquid metal doesn't quite naturally lend itself to being spurted out of a nozzle in that way. So the team created a new liquid metal ink especially, reports PhysOrg.

OM/ONE: Speaker of the Future

Posted by GarageLab on April 7, 2015 at 5:00am 0 Comments

The OM/ONE is a truly unique take on the Bluetooth speaker. This wireless speaker is certainly one of the coolest looking speakers you’ll ever see. Not only does the portable OM/ONE speaker orb float above its base when it’s in your home, you can grab it out of the air and take it with you. A built-in lithium ion battery will keep it running for up to 12 hours on a charge. Since the speaker uses Bluetooth 4.0, you can pair two of them for stereo sound. It’s also got a built-in microphone so you can use it as a speakerphone.
