Scientists, with the help of Herschel Telescope, have conclusively detected the presence of water on a dwarf planet, Ceres present in the asteroid belt, reports the web release of Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) of NASA. Ceres was identified as the largest asteroid till 2006, when it was classified as a dwarf planet due to its large size, i.e. 950km (in diameter) approximately. Though, until recently, Ceres was hypothesized to have a thick ice mantle, it was never confirmed. But the...

Karbonn Titanium S5i has popped up on online on the HomeShop 18 website with a price tag of Rs. 7999. The smartphone has got a 5-inch FWVGA (854 x 480 pixels) resolution TFT touch screen display. The Titanium S5i runs Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) with the help of an unspecified 1 GHz dual-core processor and paltry 512 MB of RAM. The small RAM means you may have to miss out on multitasking. Photographic capabilities seem rather decent with the inclusion of an 8MP rear camera with flash and a 0.3...

Anyone who has ever indulged in a first person shooter game knows a thing or two about ‘gamer rage’. However most of us are unaware of the fact that this stress also invites a physical response from the human body. Researchers monitored gamers when they were playing Halo and they found that gamer rage caused them to perspire, it tensed up their muscles and made their heart beat faster. US based visual designer Sam Matson came to know about the effects of gamer rage when he saw that his...

E-Whiskers or Electronic whiskers developed by researchers from the Berkeley Lab and the University of California Berkeley are next in line to make robots smarter. Taking a step ahead in the nanotechnology arena, the team has developed highly tactile sensors just like a cat's whiskers that can be used by robots to feel the environment they're in. Earlier we have seen electronic skin and how wearable electronics is the newly tapped arena for researchers. With these new whisker-like sensors...

How about having a transparent display on the windshield of your car that displays the desired information while you driving? Sounds interesting. Researchers from various strata have been working on transparent displays for a long time now, but there hasn’t been any limit defying or breakthrough innovation as such. The existing transparent display systems are either based on mirror or a beam-splitter (that directs the rays into the eyes giving an illusion of the image being in air) or the...

Want to know whether the cat is dead Or alive? Just peek into the goddamn Schrodinger's box you. University of Rochester scientists have devised a novel method wherein you can measure Quantum state pretty easy. This single-experiment measurement process to multidimensional quantum states is called direct measurement, and is way faster than the traditional technique. Earlier, to measure a 27-dimension quantum state, you needed to employ a costly, highly time-consuming...
