Graphene patches: to treat diabetes, goodbye to needles.
Graphene patches: to treat diabetes, goodbye to needles. Approximately 9% of adults worldwide have diabetes. That is, 9% of the world population has to be punctured finger several times a day to measure their glucose levels. Doing so is painful, tired and often logistically difficult; It does not have major health consequences in the long term (more than one and a half million diabetics die each year from such complications). This has meant that, for years, researchers have been looking for better techniques for controlling glucose. A South Korean group led by Kim Dae-Hyeong, just published in Nature Nanotechnology have created a patch of graphene that can not only monitor the blood sugar level, but administering treatment as necessary. Finally, graphene gives us good news. Although we all know because graphene is the 'material of the future' (strong and flexible as none), the truth is that certain properties have made use features to detect changes in glucose levels difficult. Therefore, the device of Korean researchers also uses a gold mesh surrounding the star material. Once set, the device captures the sweat on the skin and sensors in real time studying changes in the pH and temperature of sweat; things that indicate a high level of sugar. These readings are transmitted wirelessly to the mobile device to allow permanent control. By detecting high levels of sugar, the patch exposes a microneedles that release metformin (a drug used antidiabetic) in the skin. According to initial tests, the enforcement mechanism is so subtle that users are not even to notice. Unquestionably, these devices radically change our way of treating diabetes. We must not forget that chronic diseases are baited with those who have less resources and opportunities (80% of deaths are concentrated in poor countries and lower classes). Simplifying the process control and treatment of these diseases perhaps we can prevent diabetes by 2030 is the seventh leading cause of death in the world, such as WHO predicts. #GraphenePatches #diabetes #Medicine #Health #glucose #South #Nanotechnology #sugarLevel #graphene #PHsweat #WHO #OMS,#temperatureSweat #mobileDevice #Korean #transmitted #wirelessly

Bike Washing Machine: stationary bike washing clothes.
Bike Washing Machine: stationary bike washing clothes. Under a project of industrial design and engineering, a group of students from the University Dalian Nationalities in China have created an interesting device that links the sometimes tedious task of washing clothes and doing exercise using a stationary bike. The project is called BWM Bike Washing Machine, and combines two seemingly unrelated activities in a single device. This bike instead of front wheel have a small drum washing machine, which has a capacity of up to five kilograms of clothing complete with drainage system, the only detail is that we have to carry clothes, water and detergent addition softener. The idea is EXTREMELY simple, as the drum rotates while pedaling the bike, but also has an additional feature, since pedaling, the movement will generate energy, which can be used to charge devices, feeding a screen that shows our progress in bike, or store it for later. This is just a student project and so far there are no plans to create a commercial product, but its creators are convinced that some companies may be interested in developing it as well as improve and integrate new elements and features. #BikeWashingMachine #BWM #車椅子 #派遣 #武蔵小杉 #横浜 #川崎 #ベンツ #データセンター #WFG #SQL #IPv6

Green building: Consume less energy and absorb pollution.
Green building: Consume less energy and absorb pollution. Within the world of design and architecture, for several years it has sought to find the key that achieves buildings bring us truly "smart", where its function is not only consume less energy and recycle the existing, but also to add value the environment within the image that they bring to the landscape as well as an active tool in cleaning up the air we breathe. In mid-2015, it was presented at the World's Fair of Milan a building concept that thanks to the materials with which it is built, would be able to "eat the smog", the first building of its kind to be made of concrete designed to clear the air. A few days ago, he called Palazzo Italia has finally opened its doors. The magic of this building is its facade of 9,000 square meters covering the windows and the structure, which is made of a material that mixes cement and titanium dioxide, which upon contact with light, capturing the various oxide compounds nitrogen from the air and becomes a kind of salt that is isolated in the surface. When it rains, the salt dissolves and the facade is cleaned. But that's not all, the building is designed to consume up to 40% less energy than a conventional building of the same size, it does not produce emissions because their windows make use of photovoltaic glass, which is able to feed just over 11,000 LED bulbs. In addition to its structure it was constructed of photocatalytic cement that can be cleaned only with sunlight. #greenbuilding #LEED #sustainability #green #sustainable #eco #architecture #news #renewableenergy #in #construction

Hyperion a striking vertical city: a solution to the environmental problem and housing. now comes a new and interesting project focused on India, where in addition to being sustainable, seeks to be a single ecosystem. Created by the architectural firm Vincent Callebaut Belgian, Hyperion's, named in homage to the world's tallest living tree, it is a project of sustainable agro-ecosystem can withstand environmental changes caused by climate change. The format presented is a vertical city garden created by six towers, each with a wooden structure, which is thought to obtain forest Delhi. Each tower has 36 floors to a height of 116 meters, the project objective is to create a city that combines urban nature and farming on a small scale, this to protect the environment and diversity. And decentralize energy and food deindustrialization. Each tower will be connected by suspended bridges, they will be equipped with high vegetation, collection systems rain, areas composting areas for fish, individual for each family maintains a vegetable balconies, specialized gases, in addition to small farms with livestock in the bases of the towers. Of course it will recycling systems, solar cells and the design of the corridors will allow wind flow to drive turbines. The foundations of the city will be in concrete and steel to strengthen it, will have apartments of various sizes and furniture will be made from natural and recycled materials. The project has already been approved by the city and the study is scheduled to complete construction in 2022, ready for an opening near 2025. This wonderful complex, it will be located in Jaypee Sports City in Greater Noida, near New Delhi, and will be the first of its kind. Now hopefully the concepts shown really like it, because they are really spectacular. #verticalcity #Toronto #sustainable #Hongkong #AmazingFact #Hyperion #Oracle #Marvel #jobs #poster #MarvelHyperionposter #job #EPM #developers #consultants #hiring

IBM artificial brain: neurons create the first artificial phase change.
IBM artificial brain: neurons create the first artificial phase change. IBM has managed to implement a system of 500 artificial neurons with phase change technology they want to simulate the performance of organic brains. In a way that never before had gotten. For years, scientists have tried to imitate the versatile computing capabilities of neurons. Today, it seems that is the only way to take a step beyond artificial intelligence projects that are underway and that promise to change the world. They have been taking small steps. IBM recently managed to create memory chips to a phase change similar to the current RAM price. The phase shift is a technology that we've been talking a long time that stores data in non-volatile, ie not disappear when you turn off the device that reside in the structure and in its relational pattern. The information resides in different firing patterns of neurons and new connections are developed. Therefore, the challenge is to combine very complex nanostructures with an acceptable energy consumption, common materials and stochastic behavior. IBM new neurons try to imitate not only the operation of natural cells, but its structure. Like them, have dendrites entrance, membrane, soma and axon output. To replace the membrane, artificial neurons use a GST cells, so named because they are made of antimony, germanium and tellurium. This material turns out to be the main active component of rewritable optical disks and is what allows the phase change. #artificialbrain #NeuralNetworks #ArtificialIntelligence #tech #DataScience #nanotechnology #Healthcare #science #technology #artificial #neurons #AbanTech #research #brain #neuroscience #theory #TACTT #physics #new #culture #conspiracy

ZTE Spro Plus MWC 2016: is a tablet with an integrated projector up to 80 inches.
ZTE Spro Plus MWC 2016: is a tablet with an integrated projector up to 80 inches. The ZTE Spro Plus is a tablet with a screen diagonal of average size: its 8.4-inch cheat because although two of its dimensions achieve a compact device, it is in the thickness where it shows that they could not make cuts. That does not matter much when you consider that it is precisely because of that thickness can enjoy laser pico whopping 500 lumens (the Lenovo only reached 50) and also has a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels. This integrated projector allows achieved with an optical projection screen sizes up to 80 even more important-nothing bad for a product of these characteristics-inch that's like saying that number of lumens achieved. The sound also crucial to build on that experience offered by the pico is covered with two JBL speakers 4W each. If we focus only on their behavior as a tablet, we find the aforementioned 8.4-inch touch screen with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels, and a Snapdragon 801, 3GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage that complete with a huge battery of 12,100 mAh which according to the manufacturer fail to offer a range of 6 hours with the projector on. Use options are varied, and ZTE have highlighted the possibility to use it as a device for video: can connect a webcam via USB and project the image of the person you talk via the projector, but in addition also can connect a controller game via Bluetooth to enjoy the huge catalog of games on Android on a much larger screen than normal. Not only that support Miracast not only allow us to project the screen of the tablet itself, but also of our smartphone-always that supports this standard- to enjoy content from other devices to the projector directly. The ZTE Spro Plus is governed Marshmallow Android 6.0 for both the WiFi model as for the WiFi + LTE model. Although still undisclosed price, we know that this summer appear worldwide. #SproPlus #ZTE #android #ZTESproPlus #ZTE #android #ZTEOverseas #ZTELightUptheFuture #MWC15 #Smartphone #Huawei #Samsung #Mobile #LG #MICT

Huge Pipe futuristic: purify sea water with solar energy. In the coming years we will be facing a crisis due to the scarcity of drinking water, this has led to several countries and companies are trying to implement new developments to help mitigate these problems. The state of California is one of the most active on this issue, launching various calls for companies believe related to clean energy generation and purification of water for human consumption methods. Now as part of the 2016 edition of the contest LAGI Land Art Generator Initiative, they are revealing the finalists who would receive support to realize your project. Hence the case of The Pipe, a large silver tube will be able to desalinate water stands. Since 2008 the objective of LAGI has been to create sustainable solutions that in turn improve the urban landscape, which has become a challenge, since it must not only be functional but also visually appealing and bring something to the environment of cities, as if it were a permanent art installation. One of the finalists of the edition 2016 of the contest is The Pipe, a project created by Canadians Khalili Engineers, specialists in processing plants for food industries, beverage and packaging, consisting of a like structure tube will be manufactured silver and aluminum. #infinitefireinc #ThePipe #California #Solar #AbanTech #technology #LAGI2106 #SantaMonica #Atlantic #SolarEnergy

China An-225: not only wants to resurrect the biggest plane, but think of a whole fleet.
China An-225: not only wants to resurrect the biggest plane, but think of a whole fleet. The An-225 was the largest aircraft built according to the records (talking-not military and civilians not dealt with a project), as recalled in Popular Science where echoes the intention of resurrecting the project are made, or more well renew it and give it more importance. The title of course it beats talking pulse measures 84 meters in length (from nose to tail) and 88 meters from wing to wing. A beast of 640 tons and six engines. Besides the record size, the An-225 also carries the heaviest load, 250 tons (253,820 kilograms) and the heaviest single element loaded generator 189,980 kilograms. Although we saw her last flight a few months ago as we remembered the beginning, the first was in 1988 a space aircraft carrying 105 tons. the idea that the Chinese have is to create a transport network with these aircraft so that they can be moved from one side to another very heavy loads or large elements (such as generator we were saying, machinery, construction elements, etc.). A project whose first phase consists in having a second An-225 in 2019 and later cover a second in which takes China technology engines, namely engines Progress D-18T (or Lotarev D-18T), designed to large aircraft (also of Ukrainian origin). The new An-225 is already something other than above, since the cargo door is on the back (and we saw that in the An-225 nose opened to introduce the charge, being something quite striking). At present construction it is around the 60-70%, so it is plausible goal three years (nearly two) view, with the intention that the first flights were already made in 2020. Here the military use is also contemplated, although not per se a military plane. AICC for the An-225 is a very suitable option for transporting military equipment, as can load helicopters, weapons and even tanks. He is under construction at the moment the second plane to transport large, long-term we will see if manage to create this fleet for large intercontinental transport. #ChinaAn225 #China #An225 #an225 #Antonov #kul #Antonov225 #avgeek #Perth #hyperlapse #Mriya #plane #MYairportsaircraft #KLIA #Abantech

Micra pacemaker: the smallest pacemaker in the world has been approved for mass sale.
Micra pacemaker: the smallest pacemaker in the world has been approved for mass sale. In late 2013, the company Medtronic showed a device that could revolutionize the lives of patients with heart rhythm disorders. The device was known as Micra and was listed as "the world's smallest pacemaker," which among its benefits, besides being extremely small, did not require surgery for implantation. Now just over two years after announcing Micra has been approved by the FDA in the United States, so its sales will begin in the coming weeks for all patients requiring a pacemaker, but certainly the most important, is which it will be covered by most health insurance plans in the country. Micra is an amazing solution using transcatheter technology, so no surgery, open for implantation heart, this is done by injecting a tube 105cm in the vein of the patient's groin and installing the device will stay in the right ventricle. This will prevent the use of cables and possible infections in the surrounding tissue, because Micra has only 24 millimeters long and remains hooked by heart small teeth, emitting at all times electrical impulses to keep the heart beating, besides being able to adjust these depending on patient activity impulses. Its battery offers a range of up to 10 years and the first tests made to a group of 719 patients, 98% underwent right heart rate and only 7% had major complications after a few months, and it is thanks to these good results , which it received FDA approval. Because Micra is implanted near the lower chamber of the heart, it can not be used in patients who need stimulation in both the lower chamber and the upper, plus they can not be used in people who already have implanted another device, or well, have problems of obesity. #chipEpileptic #epileptic #marijuana #epilepsy #cannabis #cbd #seizures #MME #Missing #HelpDaisy #Clophill #Bedfordshire

Project Sundrop: a revolutionary and futuristic system of agriculture.
Project Sundrop: a revolutionary and futuristic system of agriculture. It is located in the desert of southern Australia, an inhospitable, dry and hot area that until now was considered sterile for any type of agriculture. Then came the draft of the Sundrop Farms, with only solar energy and seawater have managed to produce up to 17,000 tons of tomatoes a year. This farming system is unique in its kind, as it requires no soil, pesticides, fossil fuels and fresh water. The project began in 2010 with an experimental greenhouse near the city of Port Augusta, and after the good results in 2014 began construction of another greenhouse of 20 hectares in the same area which was completed in 2016. The same greenhouse It has a system that brings seawater Spencer Gulf, two kilometers away. Water passes a desalination plant powered by solar energy, and where fresh enough water to irrigate produced 180,000 tomato plants located inside the greenhouse after removing the salt. Solar energy produces a modern tower 150 meters high, with 23,000 mirrors pointing it to direct sunlight. On a sunny day, they can produce up to 39 megawatts of power, enough to power the desalination plant and electrical systems to maintain the temperature in the greenhouse. The area is warm, so that the greenhouse is filled with salt water wet cartons that maintain enough fresh plants to allow them grow. In winter, however, a solar heater is responsible for maintaining a comfortable temperature. Sea water also helps to clean and sterilize the air in the greenhouse, making no need for any type of pesticide. Produced tomatoes have begun to be sold in local markets. The infrastructure has cost some 200 million dollars, which is a small impediment to expand the idea. In addition, because winter has not yet managed to always get enough to keep the whole system energy, solar greenhouse still it has some dependence on fossil fuels. In any case, these are two problems waiting to remedy the medium term. #Sundrop #Cora #Marketing #Abantech #investing #branding #concentrated #SolarEnergy #RenewableEnergy #Agriculture #EcologyNature #SundropProject #FarmingSystem #Sundrop #Farms #water #sun #desalination #ElectricalSystems #SaltWater #SolarHeating #greenhouse #Sundrop #ClimateChange #DesertAreas

Mirrow provocator: These Russians intend to put four people in a microcar.
Mirrow provocator: These Russians intend to put four people in a microcar. We're seeing vehicles normally offer seats for two occupants, and leave behind us a small room for cargo. For in the same field in which cars of less than 3 meters long, the Russian concept Mirrow provocator, wants to prove that you can do different things move. That said, the car is particularly small in terms of its length, 2.7 meters long, but it is quite high and wide, and that's where you get to play with space for four seats. It is as wide as a Mercedes GLE - almost two meters - a large SUV. The other striking point is the height exceeds two meters. We understand that there is a performance based car, you want to fool the user taking curves at high speed, here the important thing was to find ways to find room for four occupants. A practical car for the city. The changes also affect the doors, so little length no sense to look for a traditional opening system with four units opening in the same direction. Here are just a central gate at the rear of the car, and as a security method, on the sides there are large windows also give access to the interior. Like other proposals that are appearing on the market - Gordon Murray T.27 - bet for two powertrains: a more traditional based on a 1.5 turbocharged diesel capable of running at 100 kilometers per hour in 8.7 seconds motor. Another fully electric with a range of 400 kilometers usage. This unique square and results in high space for four occupants, but also to load in the central area, as seen in the image that recreates the vehicle from above. When park it, it makes us do face that side, it is almost a square. Nothing serious on pricing or availability, for this we have to wait to advance the year. If we know that will be a vehicle with a range of wide prices, as there will be very basic versions, and other very luxurious, more technology. It is interesting to know that external panels can be changed to play with the designs, and will be built with recycled polymers (occupy 50% of the surface). #MirrowProvocator #Vehicles #MirrowProvocatorCars #Russians #microcar #MercedesGLE,

Oticon Opn: This instrument evolves IoT device with internet access and support IFTTT.
Oticon Opn: This instrument evolves IoT device with internet access and support IFTTT. For several decades the endaural or-ear hearing instrument is a device widely used by people with hearing weaknesses and even deafness, but it's funny how over the years the design and operation has remained almost intact, with slight improvements to a decrease in size and better sound amplification, but it is basically the same device. Now the London-based company Oticon has taken this design and adapted it new elements to make it all a connected device, a device that not only help with hearing people, but also alert to possible dangers through recipes based on IFTTT thanks to your Internet connection. OPN is a hearing aid equipped with technology TwinLink, developed by Oticon, which will have the same battery life without sacrificing size, but with WiFi connectivity, which will serve to set up alerts and notifications easily automated using recipes Steam's summer or connections direct IoT devices. By making this setting, the user can know when someone is ringing the bell, detect movements from a security camera, if the baby monitor is activated when a smoke alarm is ringing, when you get a notification to the smartphone, and even may answer calls right from the headset, as well as many other tasks depending on the needs. Another important in this hearing OPN improvement is that it has an electronic microphone capable of analyzing the sound up to 100 times per second according to its creators, which allow the person to identify the sources of sound, eliminating background noise so you can continue conversations between several people even in noisy places. Oticon has not mentioned so far price or availability, nor the full specifications of this hearing are known, something that could help us understand how all tasks that promises to work, so I just stayed with what he says the company expects to have more information. #OticonOpn #OpenSoundNavigator #audpeeps #oticon #hearingaids #Toronto #timeforabeer #SpeechGuardE #pluspower #NewHorizons #medicine #Louisvillehearingcenters #kundeogco #IoT

A submarine and floating tunnel: The surprising proposal to reduce travel times.
A submarine and floating tunnel: The surprising proposal to reduce travel times. The National Roads Authority in Norway is presenting an ambitious project would be the first in the world, which would consist of installing two underwater tunnels that would be connected to pontoons located along the surface, these pontoons remain stable tunnels and not interfere with the passage of vessels also be considered that reinforce each tunnel at the bottom of the fjord to give greater stability. The tunnels would be submerged to about 30.5 meters from the surface and each would be the wide enough to accommodate two lanes, it is proposed to have two tunnels, one for traffic in each direction, and its leaders mentioned to drive through them would very similar experience to travel underwater tunnels where Norway has 35 of them. In theory, these tunnels will reduce the journey of 22 hours on the road in Sognefjord within 11 hours. To carry out this project has a budget of 25,000 million dollars and is estimated to have them ready for the year 2035, but not before making relevant analyzes showing the possible risks of having a structure of this type to streams, and to remember that it would be the first tunnel of this kind, however the money is designed to reduce trips between fjords, so if that is not practicable may be used for other proposals. #submarineFloating #submarine #Russia #Navy #Russian #Sweden #nuclear #SharkWeek #India #yellow #sea #ocean

Air Clip capsules: play with different capsules for passengers and goods.
Air Clip capsules: play with different capsules for passengers and goods. Clip Air wants to take the concept to the world of transport of people and goods. We find something like modular aircraft. In principle four different models with the same philosophy project: there is a main module that is the cockpit with their wings, landing gear and engines. The rumen is empty for placing the other part of the equation which cabins are loaded with different designs. Not long ago we present the Airbus people had patented a similar idea. "Clip Air" is a concept of the "Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne". The Swiss believe that the same people trip reports regardless of medium, I mean, the modules or cabins could well be interchangeable between trains, boats and planes. Imagine change from "vehicle" along a journey with stops, without actually changing cabin or container. From the point of view of the goods, which normally make a more complex route in different scales and transport, it can make more sense. From the point of view of passenger may also be changes in the way we travel, for example, the entrance to the capsule would not have to be on track, they could put in a more comfortable place and then take it to the plane. competition between different operators also includes flight, which would each have a capsule of a plane (150 each). We give a rather simple view of the matter, without many technical details, but I think we can get an idea with recreations. As can be seen in them, it is possible that more than one of those cabins up to three hang onto the same plane. The most striking design concepts part is definitely lives up to its undercarriage, a structure is formed with two feet on each side of the space reserved for the capsules. Although the wheels themselves are placed in them shrink, the structure is fixed. About its feasibility, as there are all kinds of opinions: Addison Schonland specialized consultants as brilliant consider it from the point of view of engineering, but very difficult to implement. It is very difficult to compete with established and profitable technologies, introducing such a radical change. #AirClipCapsules #AirClip #capsulesPassengers #capsules #Passengers #goods #Technology

New York metro WiFi: as it prepares for its new metro WiFi, USB ports and digital displays.
New York metro WiFi: as it prepares for its new metro WiFi, USB ports and digital displays. Discretely New York is becoming a state with smart cities when nobody expected it, because the last couple of years have launched aggressive initiatives to modernize the metropolis, this through the implementation of "smart" buildings, free public WiFi modules with gigabit speed, future dumpsters with WiFi as well as the adoption of e-books for schools statewide. Following this trend, the government of New York is announcing an exciting new plan to modernize the city subway, covering both stations and carriages, which means a deserved upgrade to one of the transport systems most commonly used in the world, which in turn, is also one of the most neglected. Andrew Cuomo, Governor of New York, has announced that the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) will receive a budget of 27,000 million dollars, which will serve to start up a plan of five years for the renewal of the system city ​​subway. This renovation consists of 1,025 new cars, digital displays with mobile connections that will inform details of the routes in real time, better safety features, illuminated by LEDs and deploying WiFi and USB connection for this both new cars and for seasons. These new wagons equating real-time locating system, which will report its location via a mobile application to any person, or will be available through the screens of the seasons; you are also screens will be placed inside the car, which will be used to implement a new system of mobile advertising, plus it will be informative. The cars will also feature a new design with wider doors to allow people in and out in less time, plus they have a "free" design from start to finish so that users can be distributed throughout the car. In the coming days will start with the renovation of three seasons in Manhattan, where the plan is to modernize 31 stations in the metropolitan area before the end of the year, from 2017 start with upgrading the remaining 170 stations will have a new standard unified design, where the architectural legacy of each is respected. This project joins the city initiative to update and make safer transportation systems, which together with the recent launch of the new generation of buses with WiFi in Queens, the plan is that by 2020 the entire system transportation has a new face. #NewYorkMetroWiFi #NewYork #MetroWiFi #SuperfastWireless #CityCentreWiFi #WiFi #metro #LEDlights #SmartCity #PublicTransportation #Vehicles

The ozone layer: Thirty years later is recovering, barrier against ultraviolet rays of the sun.
The ozone layer: Thirty years later is recovering, barrier against ultraviolet rays of the sun. We get good news from Antarctica. The ozone layer, the main barrier against ultraviolet rays of the sun begins to recover. After decades of weakness, the Antarctic hole is down 4 million square kilometers since 2000. That is eight times the size of Spain. Early in the century the ozone layer reached its maximum area of ​​25 million km2. Almost a decade after the entry into force of the Protocol of Montreal, the largest international effort to save the ozone layer, the trend has reversed. The ozone layer is a layer of gas that filters the sun waves arriving protecting the surface of the earth much of the ultraviolet rays that the sun sends us. In 1985 it was discovered that the layer was disappearing and was forming a hole over Antarctica. Now scientists have noted not only the shrinking of the hole, but have confirmed that the improvement is due to the ban on chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) was agreed in Montreal in 1987. CFCs, which until a few years ago found in aerosols, refrigerants and dry cleaning products, they have played a key role in the erosion of the ozone layer. So we can only recognize that is excellent news. Especially after discovering last October that the ozone depletion returned to a record size for those dates. Now researchers claim that the eruption of Calbuco, a volcano in southern Chile, contributed to the cyclical growth of the hole but the trend is to reduction. "It is expected that the ozone layer recovers, although very slowly. Today we can be confident that the measures we take at the time have put the earth on the road to recovery," according to MIT Professor Susan Solomon, one of the greatest experts in the world on this subject and director of research. And although his team estimated that with this pace of recovery the atmosphere will not be in perfect condition until 2050, Solomon results remind us of the importance of international cooperation to stop climate change. #ozone #ozonelayer #ozonehole #atmosphere16 #preservation #ozone #environment #September16 #pollution #InternationalDay #Antarctic #ViennaConvention #turnup #skincancer #Science #OzoneLayer

City of Champions Stadium: City of Los Angeles will have spectacular new stadium in 2019.
City of Champions Stadium: City of Los Angeles will have spectacular new stadium in 2019. Finally after many proposals, debates, insults and rumors, it's official, the winning proposal for the new stadium in the city of Los Angeles, will be proposed by the Rams team in 2014 for the area of ​​Inglewood, beating the proposal Raiders Carson. The stadium, known so far under the provisional name "City of Champions Stadium ', will be located in Inglewood in the southwest of Los Angeles, which is located old Hollywood Park Racetrack until 2013. The stadium will be part of a large entertainment and shopping complex of more than 121 hectares, which will include hotels, residential spaces, shops, restaurants, theaters, entertainment venues for children and youth, as well as the new headquarters of the NFL and TV studios NFL Networks. The complex will be equipped with the latest technology, such as charging stations for electric cars, rain collection stations, recycling plants and waste water treatment, as well as solar cells located throughout the complex, which is responsible for obtaining all the energy needed to light overnight, since the idea is that the whole complex is operated at 85% renewable energy ... Of course it will be equipped with free WiFi connection to gigabit speeds, using similar devices released in New York. The ability to regular season games will be 70,000 spectators, but may be extended postseason to 80,000. It is also intended for mass events such as concerts and Super Bowls, where the maximum capacity will be 100,000 spectators, this thanks to its modular design. The roof of the stadium will feature colorful LED lights, which provide the ability to display images and information abroad. Inside the stadium is planned to install a circular double-sided OLED, where rumor has it that LG will be in charge of developing a big screen. #stadium #football #NFL #Olympic #soccer #RETWEET #baseball #London #love #Wembley #Barcelona #CityOfChampionsStadium #ChampionsStadium

3D solar towers: would be the solution to the low efficiency solar panels.
3D solar towers: would be the solution to the low efficiency solar panels. Developments around the use of renewable energy continues, the reduction in the cost of photovoltaic cells, allowing more users to adopt the use of solar panels for home and thus reduce the electricity bill. Solar panels, despite being one of the most viable for the average user options are not the most efficient, as its flat design limits its efficiency at times of peak intensity of sunlight, but this could change in the future thanks to a new project at MIT that eliminates panels and 3D transforms towers. MIT researchers have developed the first 3D solar towers with a housing made of a 3D printer, which have adapted small solar panels on two of its faces structure, this with the idea of ​​adapting to the path of the sun and thus have greater efficiency, its creators state that would be an increase of up to 20 times more solar energy, since practically be receiving sunlight throughout the day. An attractive point within these towers, is that it is printed 3D structures at the nanoscale that could be behind the panels, so there would be an obstruction and receiving sunlight is better spent. On the other hand, to solve the orientation of the towers that are always pointing in the right direction, the base would have a motor connected to a system of algorithms, which will make the tower rotate depending on the latitude and season of the year where it has been installed... #3DsolarTowers #SolarTowers #WaveEnergy2015 #renewableenergy

Nanomaterial: promises to take your electric car farther and faster.
Nanomaterial: promises to take your electric car farther and faster. A group of researchers at Northwestern University have developed a material that could accelerate significantly to charge batteries in electric cars, and also help increase their autonomy for these batteries hold off more and more kilometers. In the current electric cars use a complex system of batteries and supercapacitors to provide the necessary power to the vehicle is done, but this new nanomaterial is capable of both, combining these functions in a simple and promising solution. William Dichtel, leader of this research group, explained that the nanomaterial has the ability to store large amounts of electrical energy or charge, like a battery, and also the ability to be loaded and unloaded quickly, as a supercapacitor. The development is based on a relatively new field of research: Covalent Organic Frameworks called, a family of highly resistant polymers having a series of tiny pores that can store energy. They have combined the polymer with a highly conductive material to achieve an alternative to the porous carbon-based electrodes that previously used. The COFs are impressive and very promising structures, but its conductivity is limited. That's the problem we are trying to solve. To modify and add this attribute lacking COFs can use in practice. #nanomaterial #science #nanotechnology #AbanTech #IEEE #Battery #security #organic #CarBatteries #Vehicles #COFs #conductivity #ElectricCars #technology

Watly: would bring potable water, energy and internet services to remote areas. Watly is a project born in Barcelona with the Italian businessman Marco Attisani, who with a team of several people from around the world have worked since 2013 in what they call "the first thermodynamic computer that runs on solar energy in the world, "which would be able to provide clean water, electricity and internet. Watly has brought together more than 22 million dollars in investment since 2013, they have earned various awards where Horizon 2020 stands sponsored by the European Commission, and last year managed to jump-start version 2.0 of its device in Ghana , this after a successful campaign in Indiegogo. Version 2.0 has been operating since 2015 in the small village of Abenta in Ghana, which supplies drinking water, electricity and 3G connection about 750 people. But the company aspires to more, for it is already in the planning stage Watly version 3.0, which would increase the size and capabilities, with the aim of reaching communities that exceed the 3000 inhabitants. Version 3.0 increase its size to 40 meters long, 15 meters wide and have a close to 15 tons weight. But how does it work? 40 use photovoltaic panels on top of the structure capable of generating up to 70 kWh per day, which would be available through outlets and portable battery chargers. This energy also serve to purify waste water or seawater by a process vapor compression distillation, which removes process pathogens, salt residues, heavy metals and inorganics. This system would be able to purify up to 5,000 liters of water per day and life expectancy is estimated to be 15 years plus its maintenance would be minimal. Also comprise a system to connect via satellite or 3G or 4G antennas, this to provide an internet connection with a radius of 500 meters, which would both know the status of the device remotely and to keep informed and connected to the community. Therefore, they have launched a new campaign Indiegogo funding will serve to raise new funds, which will help build Watly 3.0 in order to be presented in September 2016 in Barcelona. #Watly #TRESemmé #SanBenedetto #Perrier

Sunway TaihuLight: The new world's fastest supercomputer is Chinese.
Sunway TaihuLight: The new world's fastest supercomputer is Chinese. Today is the thing of special computers, if a few minutes ago we taught them the micro with more cores inside, now it is the turn to more powerful system, created in China to dethrone countryman as Tianhe-2. The new supercomputer by the name of Sunway TaihuLight, and is the most capable on the planet, if we pay attention to the list of TOP500 people mounted. The most striking aspect may be that it is 100% 'Made in China', with what this means in a war that practically just arrived. It is also important to know that the United States vetoed the export of high-performance processors to China. Yes, the whole system has been built using processors designed and created in the country, they have decided not select anything that was conceived in the United States, or elsewhere on the planet. The architecture is not based on anything previously known. With its artillery get offer processing power of 93 petaflops, which is five times more than the US most powerful model - more powerful third -, and two to three times more efficient than Tianhe-2 (based on Intel processors). Sunway has 10,650,600 TaihuLight cores within 40,960 processors. In the main American machine there are 560,000 chips. Chinese supercomputer uses SW26010 processors that have been created by the Shanghai High Performance IC Design Centre. It is not only the most powerful, also helps increase the number of systems of this type are installed in China: 167. The United States is nearly tied that number with 165, so there is also an important race to qualify as the nation with more units. Most striking, according to the University of Tennessee, it is that there was a single supercomputer in 2001 on Chinese soil and in just over a decade have given back to the tortilla. The initial idea seems that it was upgrading the Tianhe-2, but with blocking export from the United States, decided it had to accelerate its '863', which promotes the development of systems with technology developed in China. It is crucial to have control over systems that will work on national security, or very important scientific research. #computer #TaihuLight #supercomputer #tech #Sunway

Wikkelhouse: sustainable house can be made of cardboard.
Wikkelhouse: sustainable house can be made of cardboard. It is an idea of ​​the firm Fiction Factory which has shaped in reality an idea so striking as novel that responds to the name of Wikkelhouse. We distinguish house next to the Dutch word wikkel which comes to mean wrapping. In short it would be something like house wrapped. And with these two terms we can already guess where the shots go. And it is that we are before a house created with ecological materials carton of which they affirm is up to one third more sustainable than a traditional dwelling. Its creators affirm that yes, that it is an ecologically efficient solution and also solid, since it has a useful life of up to 100 years. For the construction of the Wikkelhouse has used a process that brings together different modules created from carton layers 24 layers in total that are pasted between them to provide consistency and resistance using an ecological adhesive. These layers are coated to achieve an insulation of the elements water, cold, sun of a compound based on a vegetable oil and are mounted on a base of wood that elevates and insets the terrain to avoid contact with the surface. These are models with a weight of about 6 tons that are easily installable and offers dimensions of almost 1.5 meters deep, 3.5 meters high and 4.6 meters wide, modules that as units Can be grouped together to form larger structures. This is a house designed for those places where either can not build or require fast and easily removable facilities that in turn can be integrated into the environment. #Wikkelhouse #AbanTech #technology #Design #architecture #ecology #art #VegetableOil #TraditionalDwelling #EcologicalSticker #sustainability #design

On March 15 we will have information about Sony and their plans within virtual reality, but while we wait, continue to emerge clues of possible functions and accessories that come in the future, as in this case, that we have a patent for a curious glove that bring back memories to those who have more years in this video game. Forum users NeoGaf have released three applications for patents filed by Sony in the fall of 2014, ie a few months after the announcement of Project Morpheus, as it was known before the Playstation VR, in these applications can see a kind of glove allow us to hold objects and interact through gestures in virtual environments. The glove would use a very similar to the NES Power Glove, a fixture technology ahead of its time because for many it was difficult to use, in addition to its compatibility was limited to very few games. According to the patent, this glove would have a thumb controller plus a specified interface for virtual worlds, where we would receive feedback depending on the interaction we have with the various elements. According to information, the glove would be able to include sensors bending fingers and pressure sensors for the tips of the fingers and the palm of the hand, along with touch switches, all serve to expand the range of options games, thus bringing a dive that includes the sense of touch and not just the view. Of course Sony has not wanted to give statements on the matter and has only been limited to point to its next developer conference, where they will be released new details of Playstation VR. #SonyPlaystationVR #SonyPlaystation #PS4 #playstation #Sony #gaming #technology #Playstation4 #XboxOne #Techno #tech #PSP

Bicycle Bottle System: This amazing bottle becomes moist air into drinking water. Retezár Kristof is a designer who has created a unique bottle: exploiting the principle of condensation of moisture from the air to produce drinking water in any environment. Of course the amount of water produced depends on factors such as humidity or temperature water. The device is powered by solar energy and comprises a capacitor which functions as a refrigerator-connected to a series of hydrophobic surfaces water repellent. This bottle can produce half a liter of water in an hour under ideal conditions. According Retezár if ila temperature is between 30 and 40 degrees Celsius and the humidity is between 80 and 90 percent will be in the best position to generate drinking water, but in reality there is always a certain percentage of moisture in the atmosphere as well the bottle might work even in the desert. The prototype includes a filter to prevent dust or insects in the water, but so far no pollutants are filtered. In this sense Retezár is already posing a version with a filter that will avoid that problem ... #bicycle #bike #cycling #sougofollow #photography #mtb #photo #travel #cycle #BicycleBottleSystem #BicycleBottle #System

McLaren F1 OX: van transport system. No attractive design and latest technology in any of its elements, what mattered here was to create a van that for pieces could be put in a box and send to Africa. In this project called OX are the hands of designer Gordon Murray, who has had as its mission to shape a vehicle that could well be sold in Ikea. One of the important premises when creating OX, while joining the sixty parties thereto should take no more than twelve hours at the three people in charge, they would not be specialists in these conflicts. Underdeveloped places in Africa could find a cheap and easy way to mount a transport system capable of carrying about 1,900 kilos. Gordon Murray is the head of boxy vehicle designer, best known for special automotive adventures as the spectacular McLaren F1 or the economic and supermini T.27. But it is not only in the project, accompanies Torquil Norman philanthropist, owner of Global Vehicle Trust, which is the company that gives life to the project. It all started about six years ago, and they are now in the final stages of testing. The system chosen is not to drive all four wheels, it contenpla with the front to get a lighter and affordable package, the cost would be 5% of a normal car. For its height and design is able to get into rivers with up to one meter high, or complicated ways, and that infrastructure is going to move where not invite a lot to think about comfort. Its creators say that no manufacturer is interested in creating an affordable and capable vehicle to areas as discussed, they made thoroughly lost without intention of being back nothing in return. They have already spent between 3 and 4 million in the design phase. As for the engine, not anything special, but well known to nourish and easily fix: diesel engine with 2.2 liter displacement Ford origin. #van #Africa #GordonMurray#AbanTech #Makers #Vehicles #ox #vehicle #automobile #technology #news #TransportSystem #GordonMurray #GlobalVehicleTrust #GVT #OxTruck #McLarenF1

Oak Ridge Summit: U.S. its powerful new supercomputer that will have a capacity of 200 petaflops. We live in amazing times, where the battle being waged United States and China for domination of the special high-powered computing is the clearest example. A few days ago just we met Sunway TaihuLight, the new supercomputer Chinese manufacturing that came to dethrone the Tianhe-2, also Chinese, with surprising speed of 93 petaflops. But the battle has just begun, since the United States has confirmed the creation of Summit, its powerful new supercomputer that will have a capacity of 200 petaflops bestial. The United States Department of Energy through the Oak Ridge National Laboratory has confirmed that they have started construction of Summit, the new supercomputer that will have a capacity of 200 petaflops (where a petaflop is the ability to perform trillion arithmetic operations per second) and it will be powered by a Power9 IBM and Nvidia GPUs Volta system. This announcement is clearly a response to Sunway TaihuLight, where Americans do not want to show they are at a disadvantage despite development in high-performance computing in China has grown dramatically since 2001, who today has 167 operating supercomputers while the United States has 165 operating more Summit and two other systems that arrive in 2018. In addition to Summit, United States prepares 'Sierra' also based on IBM system that is expected to have an output of 150 petaflops, will be located at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and will start operations in mid 2018. On the other hand we have 'Aurora' which it will be located at the Argonne National Laboratory by the end of 2018 which involved Cray systems Computing and Intel, estimated to have a capacity of 100 petaflops. But this does not end here, because you have to remember that in 2015 Barack Obama authorized the creation of the Strategic National Initiative Computing, with which began the development of the first exascale supercomputer that will operate at 1,000 petaflops, a beast that will be positioned as the most powerful computer ever created and will be designed to bring the operations of many of the government agencies in the country. So the battle is just beginning and it gets more and more interesting. #Summit #job #traffic #jobs #Hiring #mountain #Healthcare #hiking #Nursing #web #sun #RIP #hwpl #peace #summit #korea #press #warp

At the end of these 50 units may be purchased at a lower price (unspecified) during 2017, which already can be booked with 300 euros. Funny how some technological advances come to bring us a bit of comfort and convenience to activities we do every day, this with the intention of having more free time to use it in other activities, but in turn, these same advances can serve for other circumstances. Such is the case of Ecocapsule, which is practically a house capable of withstanding any weather condition as it has the ability to generate their own energy and in turn, give us everything you need to survive if we are in a secluded place or just go out hiking. The study design and Slovak Nice Architects architecture are those behind the Ecocapsule, which has attracted the attention of several people and governments because of the variety of uses that can be given, either from a simple tent, to shelter for victims in tragedies such as earthquakes or floods. The Ecocapsule has everything you need to live and survive indefinitely, for example, has its own folding bed, windows, bathroom with shower including two small wineries (internal and external) for storing food, small kitchen, table and two chairs to work or sit down to eat. What makes independent is your energy collection system with its 2.6 square meters of solar cells on the entire roof of the capsule, and a folding pole with wind turbine 750W, all this energy is stored in a battery 9744Wh integrated capacity. But also has a system for collecting rainwater that causes leaking and stored in a tank under the capsule so it can be used for drinking, while for the use of the bathroom, shower and kitchen use is a recycling system that uses the same amount of water. The measurements are Ecocapsule 445 x 225 x 260 cm and weighing 1500 kg. Its creators are to present the first functional prototype on 28 May during the Festival of the Pioneers in Vienna, and have said they are ready to put on sale by the end of the year, even expect 2016 to make these capsules under design or special requirements. Unfortunately it is not yet disclosed the price that will have every Ecocapsule, but their manufacturers mentioned that it will be possible to send it to anywhere in the world, of course, paying the shipping and the necessary conditions for the trip capsule without problems and arrive at your destination without mishaps. #Ecocapsule #design #architecture #renewableenergy #solar #wind #sustainable #SolarPower #vienna2016 #stupidDOPE #solarenergy #Bits

Wikkelhouse: a modular house is made of cardboard. The house we teach is not made of wood, brick or concrete nor is there in its structure, and is the main construction material is cardboard. The other striking thing Wikkelhouse project is its modularity. As a loaf of bread sliced ​​and modules presented this unique house. The segments are placed side by side resting on a chassis, and is expandable in size and options, but always longitudinally as the height and width is the same in each module. Each of these sections weighs around 500 kilos, and we are from kitchen to bathroom spaces through windows, and endings and beginnings of the work. Everything rests on a chassis, a kind of way that can move if we needed it this way: change orientation, move, etc. The system to create each section, is not so simple, each consists of 24 layers of corrugated cardboard or corrugated, and inside there is a thin layer of wood that makes the whole stronger and more durable. Finally we have a waterproof treatment abroad with a wood finish that makes it more attractive. The cardboard and paper products are becoming popular among designers, especially in projects focused on sustainability and costs. Its creators say the Wikkelhouse can have a life of 50 years and still in good condition. #Wikkelhouse #cardboard #sustainable #Wikkelhouse #CardboardHouse #Fiction #WikkelhouseModular #ModularHouse #modularity

Electronic sensors graphene MWC 2016: this devices can detect our brain activity.
Electronic sensors graphene MWC 2016: this devices can detect our brain activity. Pavilion in Graphene, the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) just presented graphene sensors that takes advantage of all the capabilities of this material to develop devices capable of detecting our brain activity to completely change the interaction between people and computers. Graphene has spent many years as the "material of the future '. In 2013, the European Union funded a program to 2,000 million to research applications in the brain. They were not mistaken, it's a gem for neurosurgery: 150 times stronger than steel, very thin (the thinnest material on the planet), good conductor (250 times faster than silicon) and also biocompatible. few weeks, Fabbro, Scaini, Leon and Vazquez (2016) reported that they had been made capable of connecting electrodes graphene without damaging neurons. Although they are now at the stage of animal research, neurons retained their ability to transmit impulses without showing any side effects. This line of research would improve the quality of life of people suffering from disorders in the electrical conductivity of the brain such as epilepsy and Parkinson's. But we are not there yet. As we said at the MWC, just they presented a graphene-based electronic sensors to detect electrical activity in the brain. The key to these sensors is that they can be applied to a large area and have a very high resolution so you can completely change the way we interact with computers. The devices are based on a matrix of microsensors graphene (about 10 microns x 10 microns) to suit the specific form of the brain surface. Each sensor detects small changes of electrical activity around. #SensorsGraphene #MWC #Graphene #equipment #Medicine #Health #MWC2016 #ICN2 #neurons,

Piton CPU: The chip with 25 cores wants to be the heart of a computer with 200,000 cores. Researchers at Princeton University have developed a chip based on Open Source SPARC architecture with 25 cores and has a very special feature: it is very scalable, which could destine in the future to a computer with 200,000 cores. The chip has been named Piton, and is designed with the goal of being particularly flexible and easily scalable so that the combination of many of these CPUs can take advantage from the first server where a high degree needed parallel processing using the SPARC architecture is unique: many current advances from architectures seem most promising, especially in the case of ARM. However this project OpenSparc decided based on the design, which in turn is a modified version of OpenSparc T1 processor Oracle. The developers of the chip have used a topology mesh 5x5 matrix cores, each of which operating at 1 GHz. This is one of the latest projects in the field of Open Source processors, but is especially interesting for that scalability also it appears when it is necessary to share the DRAM memory or storage available. A small router in each core enables all of them to communicate easily, and that makes this design one of the most interesting in the field Open Source. Princeton University point out that with 460 million transistors Piton is the CPU developed in academic environments with more transistors worldwide. There is still far from the nearly 8,000 million with the most powerful processors from Intel or NVIDIA, but their manufacturing processes with integration technologies 14 and 16 nm are also advanced than the one used by these researchers, who have made use of a scale of 32 nm. #opensource #Software #processor #CPU #AbanTech #processors #servers #components, #PrincetonUniversity #SPARC #architecture #Piton #chip #cores #DRAM #technology #computer

Micro Camera: This camera fits into a syringe, it has also been printed in 3D. In recent decades we have seen the size reduction technology has become commonplace, devices that years ago were huge and heavy today are a fraction of what they were, and some have even gone to join another makes that task and many more. Today we have a new proof of this miniaturization thanks to the development of the University of Stuttgart in Germany, where they have created a micro-camera that fits inside a syringe, but has also been printed in 3D. Some components and the housing are manufactured in a 3D printer, you have placed three lenses that are installed in an optical fiber having 100 microns wide, that putting on the protective shell increases its size to 120 microns, ie, a little more than the thickness of two human hairs. This allows it to be injected into the body for endoscopic examinations, as it has the ability to focus on objects at a distance of 3 mm, which is ideal for studying human organs and even parts of the brain. The scientists responsible for the project created this camera in order to explore the interior of the human body without using more invasive methods, but its potential goes beyond because it can serve as a monitoring device, installed on drones, autonomous cars and up robots, since their small size will allow you to help a lot of tasks. This is just one project at a very early stage of development, so we have to wait several years before seeing it in medical or commercial applications, plus there are still factors that need to refine as the issue of autonomy and transmission data, however, may be the beginning of something big. #Microcamera #Worlds #drone #best #aerialphotography #UniversityofStuttgart #healthmonitoring #surveillance #health #tech #Endoscopy #InjectableCamera

Comcast Gigabit Internet: offering its gigabit Internet service in the Atlanta area with Google Fiber. Comcast is now offering its gigabit Internet service in the Atlanta area to compete with Google Fiber, but in reality, it’s unfortunately not really much competition at all. For starters, Comcast is offering the service at $70 per month, which matches the Internet-only Google Fiber package, but you must signup for a restrictive three-year contract to secure that pricing. But the hits don’t stop there if you forgo the three-year contract, you’ll pay a more princely $139.95 per month AND face monthly 300GB data caps. We hate to say it, but gigabit Internet service with a relatively low 300GB data cap (or any data cap at all for that matter) seems incredibly harsh when you’re paying $140 a month for Internet-only service. Comcast will remove that bandwidth cap if you pay an additional $35 per month. So if you don’t want to be tied down for three years, and want a really comparable service to Google Fiber, you’re looking at $175 per month, which may be a tough pill to swallow for potential customers. We should also mention that since Comcast’s gigabit Internet service is based on DOCSIS 3.1, its upload speeds are limited to just 35Mbps, whereas Google Fiber is symmetrical 1Gbps. "Our Atlanta customers will be among the first in the world to enjoy this new Gigabit technology, and we’re looking forward to learning more from these early adopters about how they take advantage of these ultra-fast speeds," said Comcast Central Division President Bill Connors. "The capabilities of DOCSIS 3.1 are incredibly exciting, and we are the first to market with a Gigabit offering that runs over our existing cable infrastructure." We should point out that Comcast considers its $70/month for 36 months package a “promotional price” that is part of a customer trial. The company goes on to state, “Once this advanced consumer trial is complete, Comcast plans to roll Gigabit service out at additional price points in other markets to gauge consumer interest in Gigabit speeds.” Let’s hope that when the gigabit service launches in additional markets that it’s priced more competitively and with fewer restrictions. #Comcast #xfinity #ComcastSucks #Florida #RETWEET #scams #scam #socialmedia #fraud #comcastcares #uverse

Neuroprotetic interface spinal brain: brain implants.
Neuroprotetic interface spinal brain: brain implants. Spinal cord injuries are undoubtedly the most dangerous that we can face, since the nerves in this area do not have the capacity for regeneration as happens in the rest of the body, so an injury in this area could represent from the loss of Mobility in one limb, to a joint paralysis of the four limbs. Now for the first time in history it seems that we are facing an opportunity to heal spinal cord injuries, as a group of researchers from China, Europe and the United States have developed a technique that has already been successfully tested on two monkeys with paralysis , This by means of a system that has been christened the neuroproteic interface of the spinal brain. For years, we have been working on finding an efficient method to connect the brain to spinal nerves that control muscle movement after injury, but attempts have been made in complex solutions that require large connected computers and even prostheses with one Lots of cables, but in the end no solution has managed to restore the independent movement that the patient had before the injury. This new development consists of a small brain implant wireless brain-computer interface or BCI capable of receiving all the signals that originate in the cerebral cortex, and that are responsible for sending orders for muscle movement. The interesting thing about this solution is that the implant is able to transmit the signals wirelessly to implants installed in the spine and that are paired with the BCI. The first tests were carried out on two monkeys with lesions that did not allow mobility in one of the hind legs, where the BCI was installed by means of electrodes in the motor cortex of the animals, making it protrude a little over their heads. Here the BCI was able to record the basic signals of the brain to send them to the spinal implants, a task that was done practically without any delay and without the need for cables. One of the monkeys regained mobility within six days, while the other did so within two weeks. #BrainImplants #Brain #mobility #Health #Abantech #SpinalCord #MedicineHealth #NeuroproteticInterface #SpinalBrain #science #technology #EfficientMethod #patient #MuscleMovement #ComputerInterfaceBCI

Microsoft just put a data center under water.
Microsoft just put a data center under water. Microsoft just finished a three-month experiment operating an underwater data center. A server rack with the power of about 300 PCs was placed into a water-tight steel cylinder and lowered into the ocean off the coast of central California. The wacky experiment was launched because current data centers are woefully inefficient. They're built where energy and land are cheap (not close to where people actually live). And they waste so much energy cooling their massive computers. The ocean can solve those problems. Ocean currents can produce enough energy to power the sub-sea data centers. The cold ocean floor sufficiently cools the computing components inside the pod. And since most people live near the ocean, placing data centers under water could potentially increase the speed at which customers could access the information stored in Microsoft's cloud. The experiment was so successful that Microsoft operated the underwater data center for 75 days longer than it had planned to. It even began running actual customers' workloads on it, according to Peter Lee, corporate vice president of Microsoft Research NExT. Microsoft has since fished the experimental data center out of the water for analysis. The next step is to get a larger pod, with about four times the computing power, under the ocean for testing. Unlike the first experiment, the next pod will also be equipped with turbines, which will convert the ocean's currents into electricity. It's not clear when, if ever, underwater data centers will become a viable product. But Microsoft is determined to try by taking small, incremental steps forward. "Our first experiment was like dipping our pinkie toe in the water, and now we're going for the big toe," Lee said... #Microsoft #tech #Windows #Windows10 #WindowsPhone #Xbox #Apps #Technology #XboxOne #Apple #WindowsOS

DNAE: This USB device performs HIV testing in less than 30 minutes.
DNAE: This USB device performs HIV testing in less than 30 minutes. Thanks to a joint development between Imperial College London and the company DNA Electronics, which consists of a small device that is able to detect HIV levels in the bloodstream. This small device allows to place a small sample of blood and later to be placed in a kind of USB pendrive, which will allow the information to be read either in a computer or in a mobile device, this through an application. Those responsible mention that the device works through a mobile phone chip, but they do not mention which or what type, which is able to identify the change in acidity in the blood and convert it into an electrical signal, which is translated by the application. The device is not only able to identify the presence of HIV, but also determines the amount of virus present in the patient, which is very useful to measure the effectiveness of treatments, because with this the doctors will have an almost immediate vision Of changes in a patient, and thus know if they are not taking their medication or the treatment is not working. Nearly 1000 samples have been performed in patients with 95% accuracy in the results, which has led to the possibility of using this device to detect hepatitis and other types of virus. The researchers say the results are available in 30 minutes, but the tests performed on average at 20 minutes. It should be noted that the device is disposable and the cost of doing it on a large scale could be even cheaper than the expense of a laboratory analysis, however, still need to perform more tests, but above all receive the necessary authorizations by Regulatory agencies around the world. #DNAE #USB #virus #pendrive #Research #MedicineHealth #VIH #HIV #DNAElectronics #DNAElectronicsUSB #ImperialCollegeLondon #abantech #Technology #application #AIDS #STD #LGBT #prep #WorldAIDSDay #health

Nasa Sky View: apps to explore the constellations and planets with your Android.
Nasa Sky View: apps to explore the constellations and planets with your Android. Apps for Android so you can explore the sky and know all the constellations and planets around us. Sky View: is one of the most popular apps to explore the sky, and also one of the most complete. It works by augmented reality to only have to point your phone at the sky and to learn more about the constellations or planets nearby. If you do not want to use the camera because you're not outdoors, you can also explore space moving mobile. It also has a mode of time machine to see what it was like heaven or how it will be on a specific date and has night mode to make it more comfortable for the eyes. Star Walk 2: is another option available on Google Play and as SkyView also allows you to locate constellations pointing the phone in the direction you want, but if you do not want to get dizzy can also move simply sliding the finger and zoom with habitual gesture. The advantage of Star Walk is offering a very polished interface and graphics three-dimensional Star Map lets you navigate through space through the screen of your mobile phone, it is much richer in features, although there are payment options like the map comets and even warns when meteor showers like the Perseides. NASA App: If you like everything about astronomy, the official NASA app can not miss on your smartphone. The interface needs a facelift, but the content does not disappoint and is also constantly updated, so every day you will see new images and news to read. Section image is one of the most consulted, especially the picture of the day from NASA, which also can be set as wallpaper. Night Sky: is another application that lets you know the name of all the stars and constellations by just moving your phone, but also Night Sky tells you when is the right time to look at the stars, not mobile, but with your own eyes . Night Sky Tools: If you're looking for is a more detailed application, Night Sky Tools is a very interesting option. Besides allowing us navigate the sky and the names of the stars, this app also offers plenty of technical data for experts. Not the best interface and its management could be more intuitive, but it compensates Tools Night Sky with a complete set of tools that provides information about the closest as in this case Perseids rain events. Meteor Shower Calendar: is an app for lovers of meteor showers. we've already said when the Perseids will reach its peak intensity but with this application you can know details of other phenomena. Meteor Shower Calendar: Meteors classified as intensity and displays them in a kind of timeline so you know which you can see. You can also be set notifications to alert you when there are meteor showers and can see the weather forecast. #apps #iphone #android #iOS #technology #Mobile #tech #SPACE #AbanTech #NASA #GooglePlay #applications #app #StarMap #NightSky

Whill: the first electric wheelchair that may be prescribed as a medical device.
Whill: the first electric wheelchair that may be prescribed as a medical device. The wheelchair has been for several years a resource widely used and versatile because it serves both for people with disabilities or reduced mobility, and patients and subjects that need to be transported from one place to another in a simple way without complications. But curiously the wheelchair has maintained its design, with slight changes but nothing radical, except for some projects that seek to make that climb stairs. Whill is a Japanese startup that developed a wheelchair based on the design and functionality of a car as the chair must be a means of transportation that a support vehicle, hence they have shown few years ago the Type-A , a device that served to get investors and boost its real project, the chair Model M, which has now received approval from the Food and Administration (FDA), which makes it the first certified as a medical device chair. The chair is driven by an electric motor that provides a maximum speed of 9 kilometers per hour, plus it is able to advance on slopes up to 10 degrees; It has two 12V 50Ah batteries which offer a range of up to 20 kilometers, which are being recharged by 80% in about eight hours. The chair supports up to 100 kilograms, has adjustable backrest and is equipped with armrests with handles that fit the size of the arms, which can be adapted to them either a joystick or touch pad species to guide the chair, The aim of Satoshi Sugie, co-founder and CEO of Whill, was to create a wheelchair that would allow a good range mobility but following medical guidelines and controls required by the FDA, so they requested the review for a couple of years and has finally been approved for sale to the public as guaranteed medical device for clinical and personal use. It should be noted that thanks to the FDA approval, the total cost of the chair can be absorbed by any insurance company in the United States. #electricwheelchair #disability #accessible #mobility # disabled #wheelchairsports #disabilityfacts

MIT AI²: Creates an Artificial Intelligence system capable of detecting 85% of cyber attacks.
MIT AI²: Creates an Artificial Intelligence system capable of detecting 85% of cyber attacks. The Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) at MIT have developed a system they have called AI² that is precisely designed to detect with high precision that are taking cyber-attacks in all kinds of scenarios, but also reduces the number of false positives considerably. Those responsible for the CSAIL explained how the current security systems usually have two modes of operation: or persons acting, or the performance of machines. Called "analysts led solutions" based on rules created by experts, and that makes those attacks that do not follow these rules are not detected. In machine-based systems the "anomaly detection" is used, but that makes many false positives occur. The solution combines both approaches MIT and makes the data detected by the machine are supervised by analysts that label and reviewed. This "system of active and continuous learning" can we refine the detection process that achieves remarkable results on the evidence of these experts. The team revealed how this system could detect 85% of cyber attacks, which is three times better detection than other systems, but also reduced the number of false positives in five times. The system was evaluated with 3.600 million "log lines" that were generated by millions of users over a period of three months. Kalyan Veeramachaneni, one of the main authors of the study, explained that "the more attacks detects the system, the information received by analysts, which in turn improve the accuracy of subsequent predictions. This interaction human-machine creates a fantastic waterfall effect. #AI² #MITAI² #CSAIL #MIT #Alzheimers #vuvuzela #Tor #SecurityRisks #security #science #robots #government #EC2Servers

Australopithecus Afarensi Lucy: Our common ancestor fell from a tree and died.
Australopithecus Afarensi Lucy: Our common ancestor fell from a tree and died. Species to which Lucy belongs, discovered by the team of Donald Johanson, Yves Coppens and Tim White in 1974 at the site of Hadar, and that there does between 2.9 and 3.9 million years, is considered our common ancestor. According to a study by the University of Texas at Austin, and published in Nature, probably he died as a result of injuries sustained after falling from a tree. Since its discovery, there has been debate over whether he could climb trees as their own ancestors. In the study, after analyzing the 40 percent available skeleton Lucy to create a digital archive of more than 35,000 images in computed tomography, it was discovered that the right humerus was fractured in a way not seen in other fossils, presenting a series of sharp and clean breaks with small bone remnants still present. As he explained the study's lead author, anthropologist John Kappelman: It is ironic that the fossil in the center of this debate on the role of human evolution arboreismo possibly died from injuries sustained after falling from a tree. This is a result of a compressive fracture when the hand hit the ground after a crash impact shoulder elements together to cause a unique signature in the humerus. #Lucy #Australopithecus #Fossil #afarensis #Wikiwand #tree #Tesla #paleoant #Naledi #Kenya #johanson #fossils #Paleontology #human #science #species #AbanTech #HumanAncestor #Museum #EvolutionHuman #studio

Transit Elevated Bus: Chinese bus running above cars is already a reality. This project is on the table and the approval of the Chinese government, everyone thought he was crazy, an unviable project that would bring more problems than benefits, however China did not stop and Tuesday kicked off with the first operational tests under real conditions, for show the world that the Straddling Bus is a reality. The now known as Transit Elevated Bus or TEB-1 had its first test run Tuesday in the city of Qinhuangdao in Hebei Province, but as part of this test only is doing a free tour of 300 meters with limited turns , this with the intention of seeing the challenges it faces, such as traffic, user acceptance, and the response of other drivers. The TEB-1 takes us through a way designed exclusively for him, is 22 meters long and 7.6 meters wide, has a capacity for 300 passengers and travels at a maximum speed of 65 km / h, its height is almost 5 meters of which 2.1 meters are for cars to pass under it. Responsible for manufacturing company has already signed contracts with five other cities in China: Nanyang, Qinhuangdao, Shenyang, Tianjin and Zhoukou, and during the remainder of 2016 will continue to experience in Qinhuangdao order to extend the path in order to add more buses and new routes in 2017, as the manufacture of both the bus and the necessary infrastructure represents only 16% of what it would cost to create a new subway line. #TransitElevatedBus #amazing #SDLive #Worldsfirst #transitelevatedbus #China #Hebei #Qinhuangdao #BUS #public #Transportation #Vehicles #TEB #AbanTech #tech #technology

European airline EasyJet: test the first airplane powered by a hydrogen hybrid system.
European airline EasyJet: test the first airplane powered by a hydrogen hybrid system. Among the measures that seek to reduce emissions in vehicles, they are focused on making more efficient fuel consumption in aircraft development, where the most important goals are to reduce costs and benefit the environment. Today, we'll see how everything is finally ready to jump-start a project that has been in the industry for some time cars airplanes with hydrogen hybrid systems. The European airline EasyJet will be the first to try this advanced hybrid system with hydrogen and fuel in an aircraft passenger, this based on a development created by students from the University of Cranfield, which will be reduced to 50,000 tons of fuel per year, would represent a reduction of up to 7% in emissions and a significant reduction in noise pollution. The system based on harnessing the braking of the aircraft upon landing, similar to what they have cars with regenerative braking system. All energy generated during braking, a system would hydrogen cell would charge the batteries of the aircraft. This stored energy can be used in lighting systems as well as in the recycling process water on the plane... #easyjet #lowcost #Ryanair #travel #avgeek #Airbus #flight #plane #London #airport #Gatwick

Source solar panel: Generates drinking water instead of electricity.
Source solar panel: Generates drinking water instead of electricity. The shortage of potable water is today one of the most important problems on our planet, which affects mainly to remote areas and developing countries, which in turn causes bad conditions of hygiene and health, as well as a Significant impact on the quality of life of people. Source is a solar panel created by startup Zero Mass Water that aims to extract moisture from the air to condense it to provide drinking water. Cody Friesen, an engineering professor at Arizona State University, is the head of Zero Mass Water and responsible for the development of Souce, which is born from a very simple principle in nature, that we all own the air that We breathe, however, almost nobody is of the water that drinks. Friesen mentions that anyone with air conditioning is able to draw water from the air, so there is no magic. To understand the operation of Source just imagine a salt shaker with grains of rice, which are able to absorb moisture to keep the salt dry, and this consists of this solar panel. Source has a material that acts as if it were those grains of rice, only here the moisture is extracted from the air. All the extracted water is purified by filters, in addition to adding calcium and magnesium to match the taste and pH of the bottled water. This panel is capable of generating up to 5 liters of water each day, enough for a family of four according to the company. #Source #Air #water #solar #Abantech #panel #energy #HygieneHealth #electricity #family #SourceSolarPanel #technology #innovation #DrinkingWater #Health #pH #renewableenergy #greenenergy

RoboHon: Lovely robot-phone-assistant Sharp and priceless and is not cheap.
RoboHon: Lovely robot-phone-assistant Sharp and priceless and is not cheap. It was early October 2015 when Sharp announced the development of a peculiar gadget that caught the world's attention, is RoboHon, an adorable robot just 19.5 cm high equipped with mobile phone functions, and image projector video and camera and functions to interact with people. At that time, Sharp just introduced the concept and first prototype, but now they have finally confirmed pricing and availability, as well as their final specifications. And as you might imagine, for now only be sold in Japan and it will not be cheap. RoboHon is equipped with voice recognition software that allows you to interact with people and respond to various actions and voice commands, has a small projector capable of projecting images and videos at a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The little robot has a weight of 390 grams and has LTE connectivity is powered by Android 5.0 and also has an LCD screen two inches with QVGA resolution, a camera of 8 megapixels, Bluetooth 4.0, 16GB of internal storage and battery 1700 mAh. Because of its size and weight, it seems complicated to be the substitute for our smartphone, but in Japan where they are used to moving out with a big load of accessories will certainly be a success. RoboHon will go on sale next May 26 for 198,000 yen (plus tax), about 1,610 euros or $ 1,810 to change, but Sharp is ahead there are plans to launch it in other countries before the end of the year, it remains to be seen how many They manage to sell at that price. #RoBoHon #sharp #ロボホン #シャープ #Smartphone #OtherTech

WiFi Passive: new project needs 10,000 times less energy.
WiFi Passive: new project needs 10,000 times less energy. This could change in the future thanks to a new project called WiFi Passive, which ensure that they need a minimum amount of energy to work. A group of researchers from the University of Washington have developed an interesting project funded by the National Science Foundation and Qualcomm, which seeks to make the WiFi connection more efficient, especially on mobile devices and in the Internet of Things. The new system known as Passive WiFi was introduced at the beginning of this 2016, but it is until now that they have been able to carry out the first tests with satisfactory results. They have been able to demonstrate that this connection consumes between 15 and 60 microvatios up to 10,000 times less energy than conventional methods, which means 1,000 times less energy than platforms like Bluetooth LR and Zigbee. One of the disadvantages is that decreasing the power consumption also decreases the bandwidth, at a maximum of 11 Mbps, falling below the capabilities offered by WiFi but above what we have with Bluetooth LE, The Passive WiFi is able to transmit information at a maximum distance of 30.5 meters. The current architecture of WiFi is based on digital and analog functions, the latter being the ones that consume more energy, such as being emitted a frequency signal. What makes this new system is that it separates the digital functions and relegates the analog to a single device connected to the electric current. On the other hand, devices that will use this connection, such as smartphones, will use an array of sensors that will serve to decode the data packets by means of a digital switch. According to its creators, this is compatible with the vast majority of mobile devices that exist in the market today. #Bluetooth #WiFi #PowerConsumption #Research #project #technology #NewSystem #BluetoothLR #Zigbee #connection #WiFiPassive #AbanTech
