Think GPS is cool? IPS will blow your mind

Think GPS is cool? IPS will blow your mind | Security And Technology From the Web | Scoop.it
For all of its awesome applications, GPS has two fundamental flaws: It doesn't work indoors, and it can't really detect altitude. An Indoor Positioning System would fix that -- and introduce some seriously awesome applications.

 

Geolocation was listed as one of the important growth industries for the future (it also is a way to reassure students that the their are jobs for geography majors).  The IPS isn't quite here, but it's hard to imagine that is too far away.

This is pretty cool, i never thought of having a gps inside large buildings like malls

This would be very helpful when traveling to large indoor tourist attractions. Especially if you are with a group of people in a large museum and you get spilt up, you can locate each other easier.

Quantum computing, no cooling required

Quantum computing, no cooling required | Security And Technology From the Web | Scoop.it

It’s a challenge that’s long been one of the holy grails of quantum computing: how to create the key building blocks known as quantum bits, or qubits, that exist in a solid-state system at room temperature. Most current systems, by comparison, rely on complex and expensive equipment designed to trap a single atom or electron in a vacuum and then cool the entire system to close to absolute zero.

 

A group of Harvard scientists, led by Professor of Physics Mikhail Lukin and including graduate students Georg Kucsko and Peter Maurer and postdoctoral researcher Christian Latta, say they’ve cracked the problem, and they did it by turning to one of the purest materials on Earth: diamonds.

 

Using a pair of impurities in ultra-pure, laboratory-grown diamonds, the researchers were able to create quantum bits and store information in them for nearly two seconds, an increase of nearly six orders of magnitude over the life span of earlier systems. The work, described in the June 8 issue of Science, is a critical first step in the eventual construction of a functional quantum computer, and has a host of other potential applications.
