Disable Java : Security Tip by US

The US Department of Homeland Security warned that a security update of Oracle’s Java software for web browsers does not do enough to protect computers from attack, sticking to its previous advice that the program be disabled.

“Unless it is absolutely necessary to run Java in web browsers, disable it,” the Department of Homeland Security’s Computer Emergency Readiness Team said in a posting on its website.

As We have written in our previous articles about LYTRO , the team has come up with a more better solution.

Hoping for some after-the-fact focusing in your next smartphone camera? Well, you’ll have to wait around a year, but Toshiba’s planning exactly that with a new module that houses an array of 500,000 tiny lenses. Within a 1cm-thick unit, these lenses are layered in front of the camera sensor, which can capture slightly different images from each lens arrangement. Those picture can then be combined in a “complete” picture using Toshiba’s own software. Apparently, the camera will also be able to measure the distance between objects in the shot — similar to how 3D images are captured — with the user then able to shift focus between close and distant detail, or even create images that are in-focus throughout. Toshiba says the module will also be able to capture video with a similar degree of focus management — something that Lytro hasn’t got around to just yet. The sensor is still a work in progress, but the manufacturer plans to commercialize the module before the end of 2013. Toshiba is looking to ally itself with multiple smartphone (and tablet) makers — and here’s hoping that it finds its way into a device outside of Japan.

A blend of both hardware and software would give us a enlightening experience.

One of the challenges of understanding the complex behavior of animals is to relate the behavior to the complex processes occurring within the brain. So far, neural models have not been able to bridge this gap, but a new software model, Spaun, goes some way to addressing this problem.

Handmate – Ordinary to Touch Displays

Portronics has introduced a handy new device that lets users convert ordinary computer and laptop monitors into touch displays. With Handmate, the company hopes to tap the large market of people who would want to upgrade (or have upgraded) to Windows 8, without making an investment in touch monitors to fully access the more intuitive, touch-friendly features of Microsoft’s new OS.

Beyond MegaPixels – Its Femto-Photography!!!

Femto-photography is a term describing ultra high speed imaging. Femto-photography of macroscopic objects was first done by a team at the MIT Media Lab lead by Ramesh Raskar. Before that the term has at least been used for certain proposed experimental procedures in experimental nuclear physics.

In their publications Raskar’s team claims to be able to capture exposures so short that light only traverses 0.6 mm (Equal to only a few picoseconds, or thousands of femtoseconds) during one exposure by combining available high end research equipment and sophisticated sampling algorithms. Raskar presented his team’s feat during TEDGlobal 2012, reaching a wider audience through viral video.

TransOS – OS in the Cloud

Have you ever thought you can use your PC without actually having a Hard Drive attached to it???? Yes, it is absolutely possible.

Due to the advancements in Cloud Computing many of the organizations are shifting to VDI (Virtual Desktop Environment) which has many advantages which will be addressed later in this article.

TransOS – A new-cloud based operating system for all kinds of computer is being developed by researchers in China.

Less than half the Earth’s landmass is accessible to wheeled  and tracked vehicles, yet people and animals can go almost anywhere on Earth. This situation motivates the development of robot vehicles that use legs for their locomotion, thereby embracing nature’s mobility solution. The goal is to achieve animal-like mobility on rough and rugged terrain, terrain too difficult for any existing vehicle.
