A team of engineering researchers from the Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto has developed a new technology that can lead us to developing really cheap and super-lightweight solar panels, infrared lasers, infrared LEDs and even better gas sensors. If all goes well, this research work on solar technology can help us get rid of the heavy solar panels on our roofs and be a welcome move for glassy and flat solar panels. All this...

The most common product out of industrial processes is waste heat. Researchers have been trying to harness this energy, which is usually wasted. Efforts to utilize this heat have centred around thermoelectric devices (like this one), solid-state materials that can produce electricity from a temperature gradient. However, their efficiency has been limited by the...

Most of the modern electric cars are powered by Lithium-Ion batteries. While these batteries offer high energy density and lower self-discharge rate, they suffer from several drawbacks. The Li-Ion batteries are not only expensive, but are subject to aging as well. The biggest drawback of the batteries being the very limited range they offer. While the world makes a slow transition to electric powered cars; a new technology, in the form of Aluminum-Air batteries has raised hopes. Alcoa and...

DARPA has a special program called the 'Z-MAN' that aims to develop biologically inspired climbing aids to enable war-fighters to scale vertical walls easily without the need of extra climbing equipment. Soldiers and military personnel might need to climb walls or mountains with full combat load without the availability of ropes or ladders. In comes the latest demonstration from DARPA that shows a human (weighing 218 pound and carrying 50 pound load) climbing a 25 feet high glass wall using...

In the Cognitive Anteater Robotics Laboratory (CARL) at the University of California, Irvine, a team of researchers led by Jeff Krichmar, professor of cognitive science, is developing what are being called 'neurotic robots'. Functioning similar to the human brains, the neurotic robots will be better equipped to make decisions like a normal person would. They are experimenting with robots that act the same way a mouse would inside a cage. A rodent tends to stick by the walls in an unfamiliar...

NASA successfully tested its Optical Payload for Lasercomm Science (OPALS) technology by transmitting a video message from the International Space Station to Earth. This is the second time when NASA has replaced radio waves with lasers for faster communication. Earlier they had implemented a similar method for high speed data transmission from moon to the earth. The data transmission process becomes...

Supercomputer Eugene Goostman developed by Vladimir Veselov and Eugene Demchenko has become the first ever machine to pass the Turing Test. As you might be aware Turing Test is a question and answer game developed by British mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst, computer scientist and philosopher Alan Turing. Any machine which can be mistaken for a human more than 30% of time during a series of five minute keyboard conversations is said to pass this test. Eugene Goostman managed to pass...
