Open Hardware: Fab Labs, die Maschinen-Bibliotheken

Open Hardware: Fab Labs, die Maschinen-Bibliotheken | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
3-D-Drucker, CNC-Fräsen oder Lasercutter – mit solchen Maschinen sollen möglichst viele Menschen in Fab Labs experimentieren. Drei dieser Werkstätten gibt es in Berlin.

 

Fab Labs sind lokale Produktionsstätten, in denen jeder mitmachen kann. Denn Fab Labs wollen so vielen Menschen wie möglich Werkzeuge zugänglich machen, die sonst nur in Firmen stehen, vor allem computergesteuerten Maschinen wie 3-D-Drucker, CNC-Fräsen oder Lasercutter.


So wie Bibliotheken jedem den Zugang zu Büchern ermöglichen wollen, bieten Fab Labs technischen Amateuren die Chance, industrielle Produktionsverfahren zu nutzen.

Smartphone-Fotografie: LEDs sollen unsichtbare Werbebotschaften senden

Smartphone-Fotografie: LEDs sollen unsichtbare Werbebotschaften senden | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Das beleuchtete Werbeschild der Zukunft könnte nach einem Vorschlag von Intel per Lichtimpuls Daten senden, die beim Abfotografieren vom Smartphone oder der Digitalkamera erkannt werden.

 

Die Bildsensoren von Smartphones werden bislang fast nur für die Fotografie verwendet, doch auch für den Empfang von Daten könnten sie genutzt werden. Intel schlägt dazu ein vereinheitlichtes Kommunikationsprotokoll vor, mit dem die sogenannte Visible Light Communication (VLC), englisch für: "Kommunikation über sichtbares Licht", herstellerübergreifend funktionieren könnte.


Damit könnte eine Art QR-Code durch Lichtimpulse etabliert werden, der beim Betrachten von LED-Werbeschildern gar nicht auffällt und nur beim Abfotografieren oder Filmen ausgewertet wird.

Build your own supercomputer: First $99 Parallella boards ship | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Who says you need millions for a supercomputer? Not Adapteva, which has started shipping its $99 Parallella single-board parallel processing board.
Gust MEES's insight:

 

Linux is the top supercomputer operating system. But while you can build your own Linux supercomputer using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) products, even with just Raspberry Pi boards,  these don't natively support massively parallel computing — the cornerstone of modern supercomputing. That's where Adapteva, with its $99 Parallella parallel processing single-board supercomputer, comes in.

Light stopped completely for a minute inside a crystal: The basis of quantum memory

Light stopped completely for a minute inside a crystal: The basis of quantum memory | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Scientists at the University of Darmstadt in Germany have stopped light for one minute.

 

Scientists at the University of Darmstadt in Germany have stopped light for one minute. For one whole minute, light, which is usually the fastest thing in the known universe and travels at 300 million meters per second, was stopped dead still inside a crystal.


This effectively creates light memory, where the image being carried by the light is stored in crystals. Beyond being utterly cool, this breakthrough could lead to the creation of long-range quantum networks — and perhaps, tantalizingly, this research might also give us some clues on accelerating light beyond the universal speed limit.
