Researchers at Stanford University are working on the idea of making a RAM-based cloud, using DRAMs. DRAMs have been of extensive use in recent years accounting to the need for large-scale database systems. The target here is to provide primary storage for cloud computing environments. If the idea is successful, RAMcloud will implement projects which need large datasets much more intensively than what is available now....

An intelligent street lighting system, created by Luix, is believed to have supervised the street lights, increasing or decreasing their brightness depending upon the number of people and vehicles present in the region. Motion Sensors have been employed for this purpose, which determines the existence of people and vehicles up to 150m from the lights. This technique not only ensures security, but also uses the lights efficiently, thus saving nearly 85 per cent of the total power...
