Stealth Technology

Stealth or low observability (as it is scientifically known) is one of the most misunderstood and misinterpreted concepts in military aviation by the common man. Stealth aircraft are considered as invisible aircraft, which dominate the skies. With an additional boost from Hollywood action movies, stealth is today termed as the concept invincibility rather than invisibility. Though, the debate still continues on whether stealth technology can make an aircraft invincible it was found that stealth aircraft are detectable by radar.

The motive behind incorporating stealth technology in an aircraft is not just to avoid missiles being fired at is but also to give total deniability to covert operations.

EVO MOUSE

The mouse, sometimes it is your best friend and sometimes it is the carpal tunnel inducing, hand cramping pain in the buttocks, but what if it didn’t have to give you those cramps? What if instead of forcing your hand to conform to the position it wants you in, it would let you use your natural hand, in whatever way you want?

With the plethora of mouse alternatives available or in development you’d be forgiven for thinking the humble computer mouse was some kind of torturous device inflicted upon computer users.
