Lasers And Bubbles Can Create 3D Images In Liquid

Lasers And Bubbles Can Create 3D Images In Liquid

Researchers might have come up with a new solution to the creation of 3D images. Forget glasses and holograms, the future could be lasers, liquids, and bubbles. In a paper, published in Optica, researchers from the Utsunomiya University in Japan have developed a way to create volumetric pixels or voxels, producing 3D images that can…

Scientists Can Now Do Quantum Hacking

Scientists Can Now Do Quantum Hacking

Being unhackable is one of the big promises of quantum computers, and in the current climate of hacking for political gain, transmitting information safely has never been more important. Unfortunately, according to University of Ottawa researchers, quantum computers can be hacked. In a paper published in Science Advances, the researchers were able to clone photons…

Ex-NASA Engineer Joins Uber To Develop Flying Car

Ex-NASA Engineer Joins Uber To Develop Flying Car

Uber Technologies, the billion-dollar tech giants behind the on-demand taxi app, have hired an ex-NASA engineer to get their dreams of flying cars off the ground. About 7 years ago, NASA engineer Mark Moore wrote a paper on the practicalities of a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) vehicle for personal air travel. Now, he’s been eyed…

Donald Trump could be about to end net neutrality

Donald Trump could be about to end net neutrality

Donald Trump wants to build another wall. Not a physical wall to keep out illegal immigrants, like his proposed Mexican border project, but a virtual wall around the internet. And just as with Mexico, he wants the people behind the wall to pay for it. President Trump seems to want to dismantle the main internet…

The Algorithm That Could Catch Serial Killers

The Algorithm That Could Catch Serial Killers

Around 216,000 people have gotten away with murder in the US since 1980. A nonprofit group wants to put a stop to that. The Murder Accountability Project contains “the most complete data on US homicides available anywhere,” according to their site. It’s an open-source website that uses vast banks of data from state, local, and FBI sources to…

Tiny Robot Drones Developed To Help Declining Bees Pollinate Plants

Tiny Robot Drones Developed To Help Declining Bees Pollinate Plants

Researchers in Japan have developed tiny insect-sized drones that can artificially pollinate plants, in a bid to take the pressure off declining bee populations. The team from the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology in Tokyo designed the “artificial pollinator” drones so that, rather than replacing bees, they might in the future aid…

Google's “DeepMind" AI Understands The Benefits Of Betrayal

Google's “DeepMind" AI Understands The Benefits Of Betrayal

It’s looking increasingly likely that artificial intelligence (AI) will be the harbinger of the next technological revolution. When it develops to the point wherein it is able to learn, think, and even “feel” without the input of a human – a truly “smart” AI – then everything we know will change, almost overnight. That’s why…
