Yes! We believe!
We can design the future in our garages.
When you hear the words “Microsoft Certified Professional” you probably either think of a white guy in his 30s or the fact that all that phrase really means is that the pro in question is certified to be able to properly install Windows and troubleshoot Windows installations. What you don’t think of is a five-year-old. Despite your thoughts, Ayan Qureshi squeaked by in the test with a minimum score of 700 out of 1000 to become what can only be assumed to be the youngest ever Microsoft Certified Professional just before his sixth birthday.
His dad, an IT professional, says of his son that “He used to sit next to me and watch me very carefully,” so the dad started showing him the basics of how to use a computer, and soon enough Ayan had his own little workshop set…Continue
Hung Nguyen and his collegues at Hanoi (Vietnam) and Aalto Finland, have created what could be called of the world's smallest refrigerator . The microrefrigerator works pulling off high energy electrons from a metal and transfering them to a superconductor, taking heat with them.
According to the team, this micro fridge may be installed directly inside of a chip in order to refrigerate, qubits of quantic processors or ultra sensible sensor used in telescopes.…Continue
An international team of researchers has discovered a new link between magnetism and electricity that may have applications in electronics.
They demonstrated that it is possible to generate an electric current in a magnetic material simply rotating its magnetization.
The phenomenon, called "charge pump" produces a high frequency alternating current.
The generation and modulation of high-frequency currents are central elements in wireless communications devices such as cell phones, Wi-Fi networking, Bluetooth, and are also being included in the radar developed for driverless cars.

Unlike most of his creations, one of inventor Patrick Priebe’s latest weapons is discreet. It’s a digital wristwatch equipped with a powerful laser. It’s not as fancy as the similarly-equipped Omega watches that James Bond has worn a couple of times, but it is real and is just as sneaky.
A team of researchers headed by Martin Fussenegger, Professor of Biotechnology and Bioengineering at the Department of Biosystems (D-BSSE) in Basel, have created an optogenetics device, which enables brainwaves to regulate gene to protein conversions.
In a study published in Nature Communications, Fussenegger commented that, "for the first time, we have been able to tap into human brainwaves, transfer them wirelessly to a gene network and regulate the expression of a gene depending on the type of thought."…Continue
A device that generates electricity from small changes in air temperature may be the solution to food and environmental sensor equipment plugged into the internet things.
Chen Zhao and colleagues at the University of Washington, USA, a small bellows filled with chloroethane gas that expands and contracts strongly against small fluctuations in temperature.
The team says he was inspired to develop his system of "energy harvesting" after reading about the Atmos clock, developed by Swiss inventor Jean-Léon Reutter in 1928.
The DNA Medical Institute Inc. (DMI) is in the advanced stages of developing a device that can check for “hundreds of diseases” from just a single drop of blood within minutes. It’s called the Reusable Handheld Electrolyte and Lab Technology for Humans (rHEALTH) sensor.
Originally developed for NASA, rHEALTH’s greatest weapons are the microscopic testing strips that fit in a small receptacle. You place your blood in that receptacle and the nanostrips and other reagents inside will react to various substances in the blood sample. You’ll then place that receptacle into rHEALTH itself. According to Wired, rHEALTH will analyze the mixture using “lasers that use variations in light intensity and scattering to come up with a diagnosis, from flu to a more serious illness such as pneumonia – or even Ebola – within a few…Continue
Not since the Wright brothers flew the first powered aircraft near Kitty Hawk in 1903 has the competition been so intense. The technology that can give us the world's first affordable and easily pilotable flying car is almost here.
Several start-ups are already moving their prototypes forward and the race is on.But just like the early days of flight, there are several schools of thought about which model will be the most efficient, workable and worthy of being the template for the…
The Philae robot landed on the surface of comet 67P / Churyumov-Gerasimenko, on Wednesday (12) at 14h03 (GMT), about 500 million kilometers away from Earth. The landing was confirmed by the European Space Agency (ESA) in Darmstadt, Germany. At Twitter, the agency said: "We are in the comet." This is an unprecedented feat in the history of space exploration, which will allow scientists to have more information about the origin of life on Earth.
The Rosetta mission launched a probe into space and a robot in 2004. The spacecraft traveled about 6 billion miles to meet up with comet. Philae The robot is a miniature laboratory that will send data to the scientists of the space agency on Earth, until the end of the mission in December 2015.…Continue
Terry McGinnis hated the Bat-Signal, but he might consider Aerial Burton’s True 3D Display. The Japanese company’s proof-of-concept device creates three dimensional images by reflecting a laser beam into the air. When air molecules are hit by the beam, they become ionized for a brief moment and release photons into the air, which manifest as bright dots of light.
