Ushering An Era of Quantum Computers with Built-in Optics: The Qubit Technology

Quantum computers are hypothetical devices with higher computational power than a traditional computer. The classical system involves bits as the smallest unit of data, that is represented by 0 or 1, while quantum computers are made up of quantum bits, also known as qubits. Unlike the conventional computer, where a bit has to be either 0 or 1, quantum mechanics grants a qubit to be in both the states at the same time. A qubit would be represented as 0 and 1 simultaneously,  a hallmark which is rudimentary to quantum…

Mercedes-Benz unveils Driverless Bus: Future of Public Transport

Future Bus is the new city bus coming straight from the vault of Mercedes-Benz. Unlike its previous autonomous semi-truck Actros that was targeted only for highways, CityPilot ridden technology bus is developed especially for an urban market. The German automaker has demonstrated that its self-driven bus is proficient enough of maneuvering through an urban environment stretching across a distance of 12-miles. It’s been nearly a decade since Mercedes-Benz has been working on automated driving technologies and the current CityPilot technology too is based on Actros Highway Pilot, the autonomous technology…

Head-up Display for Passenger Vehicles: In-car Technology

Researchers at Cambridge have unleashed an era of Head-up displays (HUD) using laser holographic techniques. The technology has introduced for the first time into Jaguar Land Rover vehicles. The human machine interface has developed to project data like speed, direction and navigation directly onto the windscreen. It’s an attempt to provide, relevant and real time information to the driver in a non-intrusive way.

The Spike S-512 Supersonic Jet: World’s Fastest Airliner with 1,370 mph Speed Limit

In an attempt of re-inventing the future of travel, Spike Aerospace has unleashed the world’s fastest airliner, the S-512 Supersonic Jet. Effortlessly, the S-512 is able to touch a supersonic gliding speed of Mach 1.6, which is around 1,220 mph while its upper limit is nearly the speed of 1,370 mph equivalent to that of Mach 1.8. The US-based aerospace engineering & design company affirmed that in order to concretize the concept, they are willing to shed $80 million. Upgrading travelling A similar concept called SABRE (Synergistic Air-Breathing Rocket Engine)…

Controlling Lightning Bolts with Laser Beams: Protection against Lightning Strikes

An interesting research has come up where scientists have attempted in controlling lightning with lasers. Huge architectural monuments and buildings (both residential and office) till now have been protected via lightning rods, which assured the predictability of bolts striking at one place, however, the pattern for route taken still remained an unsolved issue.

Tesla Powerwall: Energy Storage System for a Sustainable Home

Elon Musk aka Tony Stark of the real life leave no stone unturned when it comes to denting the universe. He concretizes stuff which we can only dream off. His idea of privatizing space travel with Space X, revolutionizing conventional automobile mechanics by introducing electric cars via Tesla motors, his unconventional open tube transport system, the Hyperloop are not the ‘only’ examples of his unlimited desire for uplifting the future of humanity. He has now come up with an energy storage system for home users, called the Powerwall.
