MRAM: 10 Times Faster Than RAM!

“Magnetoresistive random access memory (MRAM) is a faster and more energy efficient version of the RAM used in computers today, and hardware companies think it will in a few years dominate the market. Its speed and low power will in particular boost mobile computing”…. <MRAM>

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.

Ubiquitous connectivity – WiFi ? WiMax ? or Cellular?

Question: “Ubiquitous connectivity – WiFi ? WiMax ? or Cellular?

What do you see as the next coming up technology for ubiquitous connectivity? WiFi or WiMax or 3G or EVDO ? Any other ? Will the emergence of this technology be region specific ? If so, which one is likely to be the one in Asia, US and Europe ?

Part of Answer # 1

“What do you see as the next coming up technology for ubiquitous connectivity? WiFi or WiMax or 3G or EVDO ? Any other ? Will the emergence of this technology be region specific ? If so, which one is likely to be the one in Asia, US and Europe ?

“The big question is – can WiMAX catch up w or replace Cellular adoption and maturity? Intel and Samsung would like to make it the big connect-anywhere feature for new UMPC’s, but I note that for instance Sprint just delayed its planned US rollout – so we have to wait and see.

Korean WiBro is a Govt supported service up and running, and I have heard that Indian operators will now look to WiMAX for gaining cheap RoW into cities and across slums areas instead of trenching-in fiber”….   Via Linked In Answers

UWB: An old technology makes new sparks fly

Via The Economist: “With its immunity from interference from buildings, easy co-existence with other forms of radio transmission and an ability to transmit live video streams at gigabit per second speeds over short distances, UWB has had more than its share of hype. But the technology—at least in its guise as a wireless version of the ubiquitous USB cable used to connect computers and cameras to printers and other peripherals—has been catching on fast, as a rival (and perhaps complement) to Bluetooth.So much so, laptop makers like Lenovo and Dell have been hard pressed to meet demand for their latest models that come with UWB connections built in”…..

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>

Reinventing Humanity-The Future of Human-Machine Intelligence

“We stand on the threshold of the most profound and transformative event in the history of humanity, the “Singularity.”

What is the Singularity? From my perspective, the Singularity is a future period during which the pace of technological change will be so fast and far-reaching that human existence on this planet will be irreversibly altered. We will combine our brain power—the knowledge, skills, and personality quirks that make us human—with our computer power in order to think, reason, communicate, and create in ways we can scarcely even contemplate today.

This merger of man and machine, coupled with the sudden explosion in machine intelligence and rapid innovation in the fields of gene research as well as nanotechnology, will result in a world where there is no distinction between the biological and the mechanical, or between physical and virtual reality. These technological revolutions will allow us to transcend our frail bodies with all their limitations. Illness, as we know it, will be eradicated. Through the use of nanotechnology, we will be able to manufacture almost any physical product upon demand, world hunger and poverty will be solved, and pollution will vanish. Human existence will undergo a quantum leap in evolution. We will be able to live as long as we choose. The coming into being of such a world is, in essence, the Singularity.

How is it possible we could be so close to this enormous change and not see it? The answer is …”… <More>
