According to science journal Plos One the international team of researchers from Starlab Barcelona in Spain and Strasbourg successfully achieved brain-to-brain transmission of information between humans. For brain-to-brain transmission the researchers used electroencephalogram (EEG) and image-guided transcranial magnetic simulation technologies to transmit the greetings between test subjects from India to France in one study and from Spain to France in another.Electrodes were attached to a participant’s scalp on the emitter end.
Astronomers from NASA says that asteroid 2014 RC will pass extremely close to Earth on September 7 . Asteroid 2014 RC discovered just days ago on August 31 by the Catalina Sky Survey near Tucson, Arizona, and independently detected the next night by the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope, located on the summit of Haleakalā on Maui, Hawaii. Astronomers estimate that the asteroid is about 60 feet (20 meters) in size. Its close pass, 2014 RC will be about 21,126 miles (34,000 km) from Earth’s surface. That’s about 10 times closer to the Earth than the moon.
Samsung is realized that bigger isn’t necessarily better. Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note Edge which has a 5.6 inches display plus thin screen shaped like a strip along the edge, at 45 degree edge. This worked best when the main screen was turned off – swipe the edge and the time appears. This is perfect as a discreet bedside clock, though a bit pricier than most alarm clocks around.
The edge screen can also be used to display notifications along the strip when you’re watching a movie on the main screen. There’s also a toolbox panel of sorts that offers up quick buttons that turn the panel into a ruler, stopwatch, timer, flashlight and voice recorder.
For many years humanity is looking for the answers to the questions: Are we alone in the universe? Does aliens life exist?. People have different opinion regarding these questions. Some thinks aliens exist and there are other civilizations in the universe besides us, others claim the Earth is the only planet in the universe where life exists.
However, day by day we meet new facts and see new evidence that approve we are not alone.
Below are the top 10 facts approving that aliens are real.
On Aug 26 a world leader in storage solutions Seagate announced it is shipping the world’s first 8TB hard drive. It provides scale-out data infrastructures with supersized-capacity, energy-efficiency and the lowest total cost of ownership in the industry for cloud content, object storage and back-up disaster recovery storage. The 8TB hard drive delivers bulk data storage solutions for online content storage providing customers with the highest capacity density needed to address an ever increasing amount of unstructured data in an industry-standard 3.5-inch HDD.
Google has built flying drones which will be used to deliver aid following natural disasters. Wing Project has been running for two years as part of Google X, the company’s technology research arm that also created its self-driving car, but was only made public on Thursday. Google tested the drones in Queensland, Australia this month, flying chocolate bars, dog treats, cattle vaccines, water and radios to people. In total, 30 successful delivery flights of about 1km were made over the course of a week.
Most techniques for generating electricity from heat need high temperatures to achieve reasonable efficiency. Solar thermal energy is a form of energy and a technology for harnessing solar energy to generate thermal energy or electrical energy for use in industry. This high-temperature heat can be stored, thus allowing electricity to be generated on demand which is an important advantage of this technology.The first installation of solar thermal energy equipment occurred in the Sahara desert approximately in 1910 and was a steam engine without a kettle and fire but with a mirror system for sun light collection to heat water for the needed steam pressure.Solar Thermal Power PlantThousands of tracking mirrors, known as heliostats,directly concentrate sunlight onto a boiler filled with water that sits atop a tower. When the sunlight hits the boiler, the water inside is heated and creates high temperature steam. Once produced, the steam is used either in a conventional turbine to produce electricity.
Engineers from Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS, US) built a swarm of 1024 robots that are programmed to build different shapes. At first glance you might think it is masses of ants working behind you or cells that are forming an organ. In reality you see 1024 robots that are moving in a large wooden square complete with edges to stop them waddle off the edge. Engineers call the swarm “Kilobots” like the kilobyte with 1024 bytes. Each robot is a 3cm across and cylindrical and has an infrared light emitted overhead to communicate with other robots in Kilobot. Within 10cm distance robots use the infrared light to send messages to one another and take the right direction in the swarm. Everything starts when 4 robots are put in the place where the required shape is need to be formed and random selection of robots capable to move in the swarm start their slowly movement. Already on the move robots choose the direction taking into account the past experience and what their neighbors are currently doing. It doesn’t mean they don’t make mistakes but at the end they build the required shape in 6 to 12 hours.
Recently, a gym teacher in Turkey found the remains of polycephalic dolphin remains on a beach in Dikili, near the western Izmir. Turkish marine biologists are going to study the polycephalic dolphin, a phenomenon that is known from ancient times. It’s a condition of having more than one head. The oldest polycerphalic animal is 120 million years old lizard found in 2007. Polycephalic animals have their own brain but share the control of the organs and limbs.
