In remarks that signal the government’s intention to open Iran up to the world, Ali Jannati told police commanders that new
A $50 portable media player is providing many North Koreans a window to the outside world despite the government’s efforts to keep its people isolated – a symbol of change in one of the world’s most repressed societies.
By some estimates, up to half of all urban North Korean households have an
The world’s first wave-energy farm connected to the electricity grid has been switched on in Western Australia.

The project by Perth-based Carnegie Wave Energy will provide renewable electricity for Australia’s largest naval base, HMAS Stirling, on Garden Island.
The same system is also used to run a small desalination plant,
A humble roundworm is leading the race in artificial intelligence, showing that it may be possible one day to upload our brains to a computer.
Called the Open Worm Project, the research brings together scientists and programmers from around the world with the aim of recreating the behavior of the
The idea of equipment that can change its shape isn’t science fiction. Today, research using nanotechnology is well under way to develop aircraft wings, propellers, and transport vehicles that can literally change shape to improve performance and efficiency.
Aircraft flap their wings with a little nano help
Researchers have worked on aircraft that swing
Toyota gives away patents to build ‘game-changing’ car of the future The Toyota Mirai.
LAS VEGAS — Toyota made it clear today at the big Consumer Electronics Show that its fuel-cell technology is the future of automotive transportation.
The car-maker on Monday held a press conference detailing the progress of the new More…

I Suppose if I were granted a multi-billion dollar contract to build a covered wagon I’d probably be shouting to the rooftops myself….nope, can’t blame them. But can we really believe that over the course of 70 or 80 years, considering our advancements during that same time period in almost every other technology, that rocket
I started my engineering career with IBM in the Hudson Valley. I went on to work in the semiconductor industry for many years, eventually ending up in the software business, supplying design tools to the industry.
So, I was meeting up with a friend in the business who just got back from
The Physicist Michio Kaku gives a rundown on what he thinks will happen when our society eventually masters nanotechnology. Of course the question as to whether or not such a technology would be freely released to the public is another story all together.
The speeds of a smart phone, a laptop and a desktop, all pale in comparison to the potential speed of emerging quantum computing technology. This new technology may allow for the fastest computing of the most complex problems. Quantum computers can solve ”hard” problems by exploring all possible solutions at once, rather than the
China will soon have the world’s most secure major computer network, making communications between Beijing and Shanghai impenetrable to hackers and giving it a decisive edge in its quiet cyberwar with the United States.
In two years’ time, a fibre-optic cable between the two cities will transmit quantum encryption keys that can completely secure
Everyday I wake up and am amazed at how fast drone and quadcopter technology is advancing. The Nixie is a prime example of that. It’s a wearable drone, a quadcopter, that takes off from your wrist, follows you overhead, and records whatever you’re doing on camera.
Nixie, the wearable Quad copter Drone…. It can
Researchers have successfully replicated a direct brain-to-brain connection between pairs of people as part of a scientific study following the team’s initial demonstration a year ago. In the newly published study, which involved six people, researchers were able to transmit the signals from one person’s brain over the Internet and use these signals to control
Despite years of persecution, the world’s most notorious pirated content exchange continues to flout copyright laws worldwide. The Pirate Bay team revealed how cloud technology made their service’s virtual servers truly invulnerable.
Two founders of The Pirate Bay (TPB) file exchange are in prison, but their creation continues to receive millions of unique
It makes batteries charge faster and last longer. It can detect light better than the best sensors. It could lead to flexible, impossibly thin touchscreens, super-strong composites and implantable electronics. It’s called graphene, and although physicists have known about it for almost 70 years, it’s only now that the wonder material is set
WASHINGTON — North Korea may be capable of fielding a nuclear-armed missile that could reach U.S. soil, but because it has not tested such a weapon the odds of it being effective are “pretty darn low,” the commander of U.S. forces in South Korea said Friday.
In remarks at the Pentagon,

STAYING OFF THE RADAR By jamming enemy radar, the EA-18G Growler helps aircrews reach their target without being detected. The Growler is an elite electronic attack aircraft that helps save lives.
Researchers have created a radio so tiny that almost seven would fit on the face of a penny.
The device runs without a battery; instead it uses “power harvesting,” a process by which it recovers and uses energy from the same waves that carry signals to its
The Precision Guided Firearm (PGF) developed by TrackingPoint is the most accurate shooting system in the world. Called the Xact SystemTM, it solves multiple problems that long range shooters face. The Xact System ensures repeatable performance and accuracy even at extended ranges.
