Swedish company Truecaller which provides one of the most popular apps with the same name has now introduced a new app named Truemessenger. This app is a replacement app for SMS which will allow the users to verify the actual sender of the SMS. Just like Truecaller, the data will be obtained from the contact list of the users of the application. For instance, if a person saves a number indicating that it received spam messages from that number, and later if you get the message from the same...

Scientists have been using spectrometers from a long time for biomedical, physical and chemical research work. Those small instruments that can measure the properties of light have now become tinier and can easily fit inside a smartphone's camera. A team of researchers from MIT have shown how it's possible to use quantum dots or semiconductor nanoparticles to shrink the spectrometer in a size that can be used in a mobile device and thereby add a lot of useful functions to your personal...

As the human need for computing grows, researchers are faced with the problem of creating more computing power from existing electronics. The solution so far was thought to be with the 'quantum computers' - that put all the atomic level physics to the job. The quantum computers however pose a big problem: they need to be maintained in an environment that isn't very practical to achieve and maintain. The fix? Say hello to memcomputers. University of California's computer scientist,...

Modern smartphones can detect your heart rate and blood oxygen content; but pretty soon, they'll also be able to detect common health related issues. The researchers at the Medical and Surgical Center for Retina along with biomedical engineers from the ITESM have developed a special software for smartphone that can detect eye diseases like diabetic macular edema. The software relies on the camera on the smartphone to perform the test that detects any abnormality in the thickness of retina....

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will launch 5 British satellites on July 10th. This is ISRO's biggest commercial mission so far and will be executed along with Antrix - its commercial arm. ISRO will deploy the reliable, efficient and proven PSLV (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle) to put the satellites into orbit. The launchpad at the Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh will be used for this mission.

ISRO has informed that the PSLV will carry a liftoff mass of about 1440 kilograms -...
