LED LiFi Doubles Transmit Speed

LED LiFi Doubles Transmit Speed | "#Social World, Internet, Gadgets, Computers, CellPhones, Future, Space" | Scoop.it

pureLiFi, the light communications technology company, that transmits data using light waves from ‘off-the-shelf’ LED bulbs, says they have doubled the previous levels of data rates. Li-Fi enables energy-efficient data transmission using LEDs in light fixtures.

 

pureLiFi demoed the world’s first commercial Li-Fi product, Li-1st, during March at MWC 2014 and CeBIT 2014. 

 

“At the Li-Fi centre in Edinburgh, we’ve established that we can still transmit data wirelessly at data rates close to 100 per cent when lights are dimmed to levels where they appear to be switched off altogether.”

 

“This latest development furthers the case for Li-Fi revolutionising wireless communications, helps keep pureLiFi at the forefront of research and commercialisation and shows that Li-Fi really could be the enabler of the Internet of Everything.”

I think it would be a definite step forward for such a technology to get into wide use.

The signal, transmitted through LED lightbulbs, is imperceptible to human eyes.

Google Acquires Seven Robot Companies, Wants to Play a Big Role in Robotics

Google Acquires Seven Robot Companies, Wants to Play a Big Role in Robotics | "#Social World, Internet, Gadgets, Computers, CellPhones, Future, Space" | Scoop.it

A few months ago, Andy Rubin, the engineer who spearheaded the development of Android at Google, initiated a new robotics effort at the company. Rubin, who is personally interested in robots, now wants Google to have a major role in making new kinds of robotics happen. Not just robotic cars, but actual real robots. A recent article in the New York Times has revealed more about Google's plans. According to the article, Google is funding a major new robotics group, and that includes acquiring a bunch of robotics startups:


Among the companies are Schaft, a small team of Japanese roboticists who recently left Tokyo University to develop a humanoid robot, and Industrial Perception, a start-up here that has developed computer vision systems and robot arms for loading and unloading trucks. Also acquired were Meka and Redwood Robotics, makers of humanoid robots and robot arms in San Francisco, and Bot & Dolly, a maker of robotic camera systems that were recently used to create special effects in the movie “Gravity.” A related firm, Autofuss, which focuses on advertising and design, and Holomni, a small design firm that makes high-tech wheels, were acquired as well.

 


The seven companies are capable of creating technologies needed to build a mobile, dexterous robot. Mr. Rubin said he was pursuing additional acquisitions.

 

 

Some brief highlights:

Schaft is one of the Track A teams participating in the DARPA Robotics Challenge with their own custom robot based on the HRP-2.Industrial Perception spun out of Willow Garage back in March of 2012; read our Startup Spotlight post on them here.Meka Robotics builds research robots with series elastic actuators in them; they're probably best known for the M1 humanoid (pictured above in front of the Google logo) and Dreamer, which you can read about here.Redwood Robotics is (was) a collaboration between Willow Garage, SRI, and Meka that was supposedly designing a very low cost robotic arm. We've been asking around and haven't heard much for the last year or so, maybe now we know why.And of course, there's Bot & Dolly, which uses robot arms for precise and repeatable camera control, making things way more awesome than "precise and repeatable camera control" probably makes you think of.

 

Obviously, we're curious about what other acquisitions Rubin is pursuing, and more generally, just what Google is actually working on. Fortunately for us, the Google robotics group will at least initially be based right here in Palo Alto, meaning that I'll get a chance to put my spy drones and ninja outfit to good use.

Research team makes stem cell breakthrough | "#Social World, Internet, Gadgets, Computers, CellPhones, Future, Space" | Scoop.it

An international team of scientists announced today that for the first time ever, they were able to create new human stem cells by cloning older, fully mature human cells. The process cannot be used to create full human clones, as the scientists involved were quick to point out, but it does allow for cells to be grown to fit specific functions within an individual's body — resulting in new, patient-specific liver cells or heart cells that actually pulse on their own, for example.

Printing Electronics Just Got Easier - DIY Electronic Circuits Possible with Printing System

Printing Electronics Just Got Easier - DIY Electronic Circuits Possible with Printing System | "#Social World, Internet, Gadgets, Computers, CellPhones, Future, Space" | Scoop.it

A new technique developed by researchers in China allows easier printing of electronic components onto paper.

 

Technological advances may soon allow consumers to print out electronic devices on home printers. Do-it-yourself electronics manufacturing may soon be possible with your desktop printer, say the designers of a new system that directly prints electronic circuits onto ordinary paper.

 

Jing Liu, of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, said his team's advance—published May 9 in the journal Scientific Reports—could be a leap forward in the booming business of printed electronics.

 

Because the electronic inks are encased in rubber they can also be stacked in layers without altering their electrical functionality. This would allow users to build electromechanical functions into the body of 3-D printed objects.

How The World Would Look If We Could See All The Radiation From Our Cell Phones

How The World Would Look If We Could See All The Radiation From Our Cell Phones | "#Social World, Internet, Gadgets, Computers, CellPhones, Future, Space" | Scoop.it

If you’re reading this, you’re likely bathed in several channels of cell phone radiation at once. But while we can spot cell phone towers and antennae, the waves themselves remain invisible. Following up on a project to visualize what Wi-Fi might look like in cities, artist-researcher Nickolay Lamm has imagined what cell phone radiation would look like if emitted as waves of light.

 

Lamm worked with eight academics and engineers to verify that the images we’re looking at are accurate representations of cell phone radiation. Like radio, cell phones rely on radio frequency waves, which emit low-energy radiation. Unlike ionizing radiation--released by higher-energy gamma rays, x-rays, and ultraviolet rays--exposure to cell phones’ non-ionizing radiation has not been proven to cause serious damage to living tissue

We are bathing in a deadly cocktail of radiation! No wonder it is like being at the receiving end in a microwave oven. Radiation can alter our DNA, and cause mutations to happen! Mutation may be defined as accelerated evolution in layman's terms! Increasing cases of cancer, pshyco-neural complications, birth defects, you name it, all these can be aggravated by this deadly exposure to radiation! No wonder we are so obsessed with technology that we are ready to ignore all those emissions all for the sake of comfort! This is an article that is simply laying bare the facts!

The rise of 3D printing has introduced one of the most ground-breaking technological feats happening right now. The most exciting part, though, doesn't have anything to do with printing electronics or fancy furniture, but in producing human tissues, otherwise known as bioprinting. While it is still in its infancy, the future of bioprinting looks very bright and will eventually result in some major advances for society, whilst also saving billions for the economy this is spent on research and development.

I can't see this saving money - but it will save lives. The technology to print exists. It is the question of how to develop stem cells into tissue types and then how to link these with the bodies complex control systems (nervous, circulatory and immune). in the best case scenario a grown organ will be recognised as self and the body systems will grow into them. However, organs are not toasters. Researchers are concentrating on easy things like skin grafts and ears at present, but like nano electronics, the future is full of potential and questions.
