Wolfram Alpha: A Radical New Formula for Web Search ?

https://i0.wp.com/www.thetechherald.com/media/images/200911/wolfram_1.jpg‘The product of four years of development, Alpha is an engine for answers. Its ambition is to delve into “all the knowledge in the world,” Wolfram says, to find and calculate information.

Though Alpha’s interface evokes Google ― whose co-founder Sergey Brin once spent a summer interning for Wolfram ― it’s more like the anti-Google.Type in a query for a statistic, a profile of a country or company, the average airspeed of a sparrow ― and instead of a series of results that may or may not provide the answer you’re looking for, you get a mini dossier on the subject compiled in real time that, ideally, nails the exact thing you want to know. It’s like having a squad of Cambridge mathematicians and CIA analysts inside your browser”….<More>

Solar Powered Robotic Lawn Mower


“utomower Solar Hybrid is the world’s first fully automatic lawn mower that is partly powered by the sun. Brilliant for your lawn, great for your conscience, better for the planet. The product uses considerably less energy than any conventional mower. That’s because in addition to a charging station, it comes with a large integrated solar panel. When there is daylight available, the solar cells enable the mower to extend its cutting periods before it needs recharging”….

Realistic, Fast 3D Graphics For You Anywhere from The Cloud

“Imagine you could play video games – and immerse yourself in virtual worlds – with 3D graphics comparable to those found in blockbuster films like Transformers or WALL•E. And then imagine you could experience and control those graphics in real-time from any internet-enabled device, whether it be a desktop computer, set-top box or even iPhone.

Sound far-fetched? It doesn’t to Jules Urbach, founder and CEO of a Los Angeles-based company called OTOY, who has been working with microprocessor manufacturer AMD since 2006 to make the idea of server-side graphics processing a reality. If all goes as planned, 3D rendering will become just another computer task that jumps from the client to the cloud. Call it gaming as a service (GaaS) if you will. No more Xboxes, no more PlayStations, and no more souped-up PC towers. Just a monitor, some controls, and a way to receive and display frames generated by a powerful server farm”….<More>

Tilted Twister – a Lego Mindstorms robot that solves Rubik’s cube

“Tilted Twister solves Rubik’s cube fully automatically.

Just place the scrambled cube on Tilted Twister’s turntable. An
ultrasonic sensor detects its presence and starts to read the colors of

the cube faces using a light sensor. The robot turns and tilts the cube
in order to read all the faces of the cube. It then calculates a
solution and executes the moves by turning, tilting and twisting the
cube.

The challenge was to build the robot using only the Lego Mindstorms
NXT Retail-kit. And to make it completely independent, without need of
being connected to a PC.

A Look At The Most Interesting Emerging Technologies

Via Forbes: “One of the core findings from my research is that companies innovate faster than people’s lives change. Think about your mobile phone. Odds are, you use only a fraction of the capability of the phone. Companies have to play this game. The sustaining innovations that move a company along an established improvement trajectory are the life blood of any firm.

Print Your House

If everything goes according to plan, one of the largest printers in the world will soon be rolling into Los Angeles this August. After it is bolted in place, the printer will construct the shell of a full-sized house in less than a week with minimal human intervention. The eventual goal: to use rapid-set concrete to print shell houses in 24 hours that require only electrical and plumbing installation”….  <More>

Are We Living in a Computer Simulation?

“Until I talked to Nick Bostrom, a philosopher at Oxford University, it never occurred to me that our universe might be somebody else’s hobby. I hadn’t imagined that the omniscient, omnipotent creator of the heavens and earth could be an advanced version of a guy who spends his weekends building model railroads or overseeing video-game worlds like the Sims”…. <More>

Electrode Implants Boost Brain-Crippled Patient

“Before his injury, the man—whose identity was not disclosed—loved to draw, collected comic books and fancied movies about superheroes.
He was attacked and robbed in 1999.
“His skull was completely crushed and he was left for dead,” his mother told reporters in a telephone briefing. He spent the next five years in a nursing home with no hope of recovery. He would occasionally mouth the word yes or no, but could not communicate reliably or eat on his own.
His parents agreed to try the experimental treatment in August 2005, and doctors saw immediate results.
He was alert and could move his head to follow voices.
He can now drink from a cup, recall and speak 16 words, and watch a movie”….. <More>
