Jimmy will detect indoor pollutants

Jimmy will detect indoor pollutants

Sep 16, 2014

Jimmy is a social, humanoid robot who may be looked at as a prototype of what robots will become at an advanced stage of their evolution. Robots, in the future, will become as common as smart phones are today. Brian David Johnson is employed by Intel focusing on those days of robots and he teamed up with Sandy Winkelman, an artist, to create Jimmy. He is a “cute” robot defying the image of “dangerousness” that the movie Terminator associated with robots; moreover, Jimmy will detect indoor pollutants through an app called “Air. Aware. Action.” This app is created by Naomi…

A rust free world is no longer a fiction

A rust free world is no longer a fiction

British and US scientists together have demonstrated that a combination of graphene and oxygen can form graphene oxide; paint created with graphene oxide is capable of guarding any material from decays due to atmospheric corrosion. Thus, applying this certain kind of paint on a surface may guarantee protection from air, weather elements and chemicals that are corrosive. Seems like a “rust free world” is no longer a fiction, and its implication for various industries is far reaching. Graphene is currently being used in chemical, pharmaceutical and electronic industries. When graphene paint becomes common, its use will expand to other industries…

The rivalry between two companies that manufacture similar merchandise is easily understandable. A dignified approach of facing the competition with better products or better prices and even more, with attractive commercials, has been tolerated all over the world. Recently, Samsung took advertisement to a new low as it compared its Galaxy Note 4 with Apple’s newly released iPhone 6 by pointing out the limitations of the iPhone 6. Last Wednesday, Samsung posted six advertisements on its YouTube channel mocking the iPhone 6 that feature two Apple’s “genius” workers, supposedly working in an Apple repair room. The series of videos run…

Recently, David Besbris, Google’s Vice President of Engineering, has announced that the company has acquired Polar; the Polar team is supposed to enhance Google+ experience among its users. It is yet to be seen whether through this step Google can salvage Google+ by…

Microsoft to play with Mojang

Software giant Microsoft is one of the leading manufacturers of video games consoles. Insiders are talking about its acquisition of Mojang, the creator of the popular game “Minecraft”. It will cost more than 2 billion dollars for Microsoft to play with Mojang, a company that is only four years old. Minecraft’s success is obvious, given the fact that 54 million of its units were sold across the hardware platforms. The game was launched in 2009 and became an instant hit from the very beginning. Mojang earned mind blowing revenue of $128 million alone in 2013. It will be the biggest…
