Videocon has announced VPhone Grande, a budget phone priced at Rs. 1950.00 for Indian mobile consumers. Budget phones we've seen so far (and we're talking about those priced under Rs. 5000) were all pale looking and boring without exception. Videocon seems to have found a ray of hope in making these phones look funky and stylish to attract consumers. Make no mistake, the phone is quite decent one for the price and can easily give a non-geek an impression of a premium phone. Let's have a look at...

Barring a few exceptions, Samsung has been notorious for selling devices that offer sub-par performance in the high-end tablet market. But this time, Samsung has really outdone its previous releases and has offered new tablets with a lot of substance. The Samsung Galaxy S Tab comes in 4 variants: The Samsung Galaxy S Tab 8.4 Wi-Fi, Samsung Galaxy S Tab 8.4 LTE, Samsung Galaxy S Tab 10.5 Wi-Fi and Samsung Galaxy S Tab 10.5 LTE. The specs and the design the Tab offers could definitely make iPad...

A team from University of Washington researchers, led by Maya Cakmak and Rajesh P. N. Rao, has developed a new way of Goal-based Imitation Learning. The computer scientists have shown how a robot can efficiently complete the task through crowdsourcing. The robot can learn by imitating a human to perform a particular task but it will take a considerable amount of time as the robot in the study uses machine-learning techniques. However, according to the team, a lot of time could be saved if the...

Taking cue from nature for your next robotics project might be the most sane thing to do. As engineers and researchers from across the globe are developing interesting robots that mimic different animals and birds from nature, a new breed of robotics known as 'bio-bots' has taken to rise. Now a group of engineers from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have developed “bio-bots” that can walk and are powered by muscle cells and controlled using electrical pulses. In their research of...

The South Korean giant has taken covers off the Galaxy S5 mini smartphone. Though it was expected that the company would scrimp on sensors to reduce price, the S5 mini will have the same features as that of its elder brother including fingerprint sensor and a heart rate monitor. Instead there is a reduction in quality of display, camera and processor.

Having a 4.5-inch HD (720p) Super AMOLED display, the S5 mini will be powered...

All aboard the deep learning train! Deep Learning is an umbrella term given to a set of machine learning algorithms that are usually derived from neural networks. Neural networks are computation models inspired from the human brain, which uses abstractions to better represent data, even if that sounds counter-intuitive. This may sound dull to a layman, but every major company is using it today to bolster their speech recognition applications and vision tasks. Facebook's...

Way back in 1998, IBM was the first company to come out with a working carbon nanotube transistor. Now 16 years later, the company has committed to bring out a commercial version of this transistor by 2020. IBM claims that chips manufactured using these transistors will be faster and of course, smaller. While Intel's latest chips boast a size of 14 nanometers, IBM's chips will be of a size of 5 nanometers. IBM said that the carbon nanotube technology is the only one by far which can cope with...

Smartphones, now-a-days, use off screen gestures for various purposes such as opening apps, navigation, text input, etc. Thanks to one such gesture recognition app, taking “selfies” or “groupies” has now become much easier. Crunchfish, a private company based in Malmö, Sweden has developed an app, GoCam! that allows users to take photos or videos of themselves without touching the screens. This is the first ever touch-less video recording app in the market.

A team of engineers at University of Cambridge have managed to break the world record for the trapped magnetic field in a superconductor. The previous record was created over a decade ago and stood at 17.24 Tesla and was achieved by a team led by Professor Masato Murakami from the Shibaura Institute of Technology in Japan. The Cambridge team managed to create a magnetic field with strength of 17.6 Tesla. To put things into perspective, we would like to inform you that a fridge magnet has...

NASA has given a 'go ahead' to the Observing Carbon Observatory 2 (OCO-2) satellite launch. It is now scheduled to launch tomorrow at 5:56 A.M. EDT (3:26 P.M. IST) atop a United Launch Alliance Delta II rocket from Space Launch Complex 2 at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. The OCO-2, as the name suggests, will monitor the carbon dioxide levels in earth's atmosphere. NASA hopes that the satellite will provide a comprehensive data about the 'sources' and 'sinks' of carbon dioxide on...
