Various flexible technologies have been invented, from displays to circuits to memory, so the next logical step in the process would be to create a battery to go with it. Up until now, flexible batteries have eluded manufacturers, but researchers from Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) have come up with a bendable lithium-ion battery that may just make that flexible phone a reality.
For as long as cars have existed, there have been systems and devices in place to prevent people from running into pedestrians. A vigilant driver is always good for prevention, but add on top of that a wireless pedestrian detection system and hopefully more accidents can be prevented.
General Motors (GM) in the US is putting together some new WiFi technology into their detection system and are currently in midst of testing it.
The holodeck in Star Trek: The Next Generation may be one of the best fictional examples of a virtual reality out there. Now imagine this concept brought into your very own living room.
With the Occulus Rift VR display, those dreams may become reality sooner than you may think.
Electricity is something most, if not all of us take for granted every day. We rely on it for our comfort and also for convenience. To generate this electricity we need resources, some reusable and some not.
For the first time ever, Enel Green Power has set up a power plant that generates electricity from both geothermal and solar energy.
Navigation comes easily in animals, and it seems to be an innate ability for migrating animals to be able to navigate using the geomagnetic fields of the Earth.
IndoorAtlas hopes to bring this ability to us as well, not to navigate the long distances that mirating animals travel but to help us find our way inside buildings. To to this they will be equpping us with an updated version of mankind’s oldes navigating technology, the humble compass on our smartphones.
