Researchers by an Indian-origin scientist from the University of Utah led to the development of a polarizing filter that can allow more light in. This new polarizing filter can produce efficient cameras that can capture good images even in dim light and proficient LCD displays that can last long by consuming less battery charge. Polarizers are used widely by photographers...

It is a commonly known that magnets attract at opposite poles and repel on same sides. Now using these magnetic properties in helmets worn by football players a research team is working out to reduce the risk of concussions to up to 80 percent. The research team suggests that by putting magnets to football helmets the risk of concussions could be reduced. When players...

Microsoft is known for practical chutzpah. The company refrains from gung-ho experimenting just for the sake of making it to the headlines and doesn’t share the enthusiasm over Google X projects that seem to have been within the confines of the lab for simply too long.  But now, Microsoft has all at once gone intrepid and rather foolhardy with a tactical...

At some point in life, most of us would have spent more than an hour at a shoe store trying to find a suitable pair of shoes. The one that looks great doesn’t fit so well and the pair that fits ever so snugly on the inside, doesn’t look complimenting to your physique. This is especially true in the case of running shoes and sneakers. Even when you succeed...

NASA’s researcher team successfully tested 3D manufactured copper parts for space launch engines and concluded that they could withstand the heat and pressure required for the combustion of these engines. Aerojet Rocketdyne(AR), a US space agency and California-based rocket and missile propulsion manufacturer along with NASA successfully conducted initial hot-fire...

Optogenetics is the field of study that deals with activating neurons with illumination. This has influenced phenomenal advancement in medical and scientific research and has found application in several ingenious conceptions like gene therapy to cure heart disease and transparent, light sensitive brain implant controls that could even prevent epileptic attacks....

The European Space Agency (ESA) as a first space exploration made a probe land on a comet that ended up anchoring itself in the shadow of a cliff which was almost a kilometer away from its intended landing position. Rosetta, the mothership carrying the probe lander called Philae released it on Wednesday as it was orbiting the comet – 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko,...

Technology developed to the core, the extent of controlling ones brain by the other is happening. It was the thriving effort of University of Washington researchers who as a part of a scientific study on direct transmission of signals were able to successfully replicate direct brain-to-brain connection between many pairs of individuals. The team had already done...

3D Printers are grabbing eyeballs everywhere, both within artist and sculptor communities and among art hobbyists. From toys to pistols, these revolutionary equipments are being tested and experimented with to build some brilliant instruments like the prosthetic arm that a dad built for his son and went viral on the internet. People are even exploring wider applicability...
