Worlds Smallest Computer

Worlds Smallest Computer

Seriously, the world’s smallest computer. It barely covers the “N” on a penny. The prototypical sensor device developed by researchers at the University of Michigan is intended to monitor eye pressure for glaucoma patients. It connects wirelessly to other computers and is charged with a solar cell, needing just 1.5 hours of sunlight or 10 hours of indoor light to reach full power. The mini-computer has potential for a plethora of applications, from sensing pollution, structural integrity, tracking and surveillance — virtually any way one could think of to make an object “smart.”

Brain Controlled Car

Devices that pick up brain waves and translate them into mechanical action are being developed to control prosthetic limbs, robots and video games. Soon you’ll be able to control your television and phone. But now comes the BrainDriver, a car that is driven entirely by your thoughts.It’s a new application of the brain-computer interface to allow human drivers to control their car without a steering wheel.Researchers, led by led by Raul Rojas, a professor of artificial intelligence at the Freie Universitat Berlin, use an “Emotiv neroheadset” to record brain activity in the driver. The neuroheadset is a electroencephalography, or EEG, originally developed for video games by San Francisco-based company Emotiv. Before a driver even steps into the car, they have to go through several rounds of mental training. That’s when the driver learns how to move virtual objects just by thinking of moving them.

Brain Controlled Prosthesis

One of the biggest breakthroughs in the field of prosthetics has been made recently.The researchers could develop artificial limbs which are controlled by the brain user. Researchers are working to increase the flexibility of their prostheses.Their latest invention works in the following way: the user must consider the motion, after which the brain signals detected by sensors and transmitted to the prosthetic limb. it is impossible not to note that most amputees have lost control over the nerves. However, for restoring this control, Mr. Sullivan can use the new prosthesis. At present, the researchers at Northwestern University in the U.S.are studying different models of the brain to find out whether they can be used artificial limbs or not, according to Tech2.0.

Portable Mechanical Charger

Portable Mechanical Charger

Have you ever thought about charging the battery by using a simple spring force?EnomHwaang and Ming Ho Kahn developed a new device for recharging batteries anywhere and at any time, regardless of the electrical network. Device uses a purelymechanical energy and has high efficiency. The recharging batteries is very simple. It is just creating a device like a clock and insert the battery into the slot. The operation is similar to the old clockwork toys. Device installed inside the spring which is gradually unwound, driving the shaft of the generator and producing a current. Spring and rechargeable batteries are connected to each other via the internal circuitry.
