What you just read guys is actually correct. Engineers have come up with a system that enables disabled people to control the movement of their wheelchair with their tongue.  Ph.D., assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta says “It lets them use their tongue motion and translate it to different commands”.  Though this news is not the latest-in, I just thought that I should share this with all you guys.

The basic reason...

Difficult to believe, huh? Even I gave the same reaction after finding this thing out. Scientists from the University of Southampton claim to have developed a control system which give the spacecrafts the ability to think. This dexterous control system was developed by Prof. Sandor Veres and his team of engineers.

Prof. Veres says “This is the world's first publishing system of technical knowledge for machines and opens the way for engineers to publish control instructions to machines...

The camera in mobile phones has become quite obsolete due to certain drawbacks. If you take a photograph with a standalone camera and compare it with that taken by your mobile camera having same megapixel rating, you will find that in the image taken by simple camera, the image is focused towards the area of interest, while in mobile cam image, all objects have equal focus. Secondly, the light gathering ability of mobile cameras is lesser than SLR cameras. This has given apps developers an...
