Get Ready For Low-Cost Jet Engines That Reach Space Without Burning Fossil Fuels

Flying on Wings of Plasma [INFOGRAPHIC]

Plasma Jet Engines

Imagine a jet engine that could propel an aircraft faster than a traditional engine, taking all the way to the edge of the atmosphere, all without burning fossil fuels — and for a low cost. That’s exactly what plasma jet engines should be able to do, although thus far they have been confined to research labs, mostly those focusing on using the engines to move satellites

Instead of burning fuel and compressed air and then shoving the results out of the back of an engine to cause a forward propulsion, Lees verder

This Supersensor Knows More About Your House Than You Do

This complex sensor can monitor pretty much all of the activity in your home, by sensing temperature fluctuation, electricity use, sounds, movement, and duration of events. It’s a foundation on which to build truly “Smart” homes, where activities are tracked, remote-controlled, and automated as the user sees fit. For now, it’s a great way to monitor the events in a busy home, workshop, or business. The SuperSensor secures all user data and doesn’t transmit it to the Cloud.

HTC Vive and Google Are Bringing You an Untethered VR Headset

Vive just announced they’ve partnered with Google to create a new untethered VR headset. The headset will be unique because it doesn’t require a PC or mobile device in order to work. Users simply pick up the headset and enter immersive virtual reality. Though many details have yet to be revealed Vive claims the headset should be available later in the year.

New Flexible, Lightweight Device Lets You Transform Anything Into a Speaker

*3* This Light-Weight Device Can Turn Just About Anything Into a Speaker

Breakthrough Technology

Speakers can be bulky, especially the more powerful ones. So, what if it were possible to enjoy your favorite sounds, say in an event or a party, without the hassle of setting up such massive devices? It could be, with a new device developed by scientists from the Michigan State University (MSU), which they’re calling a ferroelectret nanogenerator, or FENG for short.

This flexible and paper-thin device wasn’t originally meant to be a speaker. Back in its inception in late 2016, FENG was developed to be  “the first transducer that is ultra-thin, flexible, scalable and bidirectional, meaning it Lees verder

Google’s New AI Is Better at Creating AI Than the Company’s Engineers

Understanding Machine Learning [INFOGRAPHIC]

Google’s AutoML

One of the more noteworthy remarks to come out of Google I/O ’17 conference this week was CEO Sundar Pichai recalling how his team had joked that they have achieved “AI inception” with AutoML. Instead of crafting layers of dreams like in the Christopher Nolan flick, however, the AutoML system layers artificial intelligence (AI), with AI systems creating better AI systems.

The AutoML project focuses on deep learning, a technique that involves passing data through layers of neural networks. Creating these layers Lees verder

For the First Time Ever, Researchers Produced Lab-Grown Blood Stem Cells

Stem Cells to Bone Marrow

In two separate studies, researchers have successfully created blood stem cells in a laboratory setting for the first time. These types of cells are found in bone marrow and can be depleted by diseases like leukemia and even by the treatments for those diseases, such as chemotherapy.

George Daley, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine at Harvard, and his team started with pluripotent stem cells, which can give rise to just about any type cell in our anatomy. By looking at what proteins controlled the genes in bone marrow cells, they were able to isolate several that were essential to Lees verder

A Platform Shift

It’s the time of year again for Google I/O, the company’s annual developer conference. On Wednesday, the showcase started with a keynote from CEO Sundar Pichai who reiterated the company’s latest approach for all that it does: artificial intelligence (AI). Google does a lot, from its original search engine function, to email, video services, and mobile software — and the company wants to see AI will be at the helm of it all.

Pichar highlighted this “AI-first” focus, something he mentioned at the I/O last year. Now, Google has given the rest of the world a glimpse of how machine Lees verder
