Google Fiber is a project which uses fiber optic communication for broad band network and which offers an amazing speed of 1000 Mbps,almost 100 times faster than todays broad band speed. Google Fiber is both your Internet and TV.It brings together your devices and gives you the freedom to search ,record and save shows.

LIQUID KEYBOARD

Touch-typing works well on a physical keyboard. One can feel the keys and their location and has based on this a clear understanding on where all other keys are located without looking at them. Virtual keyboards do not allow touch-typing as firstly placing 10 fingers on the screen would activate keys accidentally and secondly one cannot feel the keys. Hence does not know where other keys located without look at them. For making touch-typing work on touch screens and surfaces the input system has to adapt to the touch screen conditions.Researchers from University of Technology,Sydney have come  up with a new idea through which typing on touch screens becomes much easier.They call it ‘LIQUIDKEYBOARD’.

The world’s smallest magnetic data storage unit is made of just 12 atoms, squeezing an entire byte into just 96 atoms, a significant shrinkage in the world of information storage. It’s not a quantum computer, but it’s a computer storage unit at the quantum scale. By contrast, modern hard disk drives use about a million atoms to store a single bit, and a half billion atoms per byte.

Mobile Lorm Glove

The Design Research Lab in Berlin has developed a glove that provides a way for people who are deaf and blind to communicate digitally. Named the Mobile Lorm Glove, this product has the ability to translate text into “Lorm,” a hand-touch alphabet used by deaf blind people. Such a product allows them to communicate via SMS messaging, email and online chat.Textile pressure sensors located on the palm of the glove enable the deafblind user to “lorm” onto his or her own hand to compose text messages.

TRAGIC DECLINE OF BLACKBERRY

BLACK BERRY is a brand that created a sensation years along in mobile phone world. It was a brand, a symbol of royalty, dignity.

Research in Motion (RIM), makers of the venerable BlackBerry devices, will always be remembered as the company who liberated corporate email from the PC. In fact, you could make a compelling case that the first Blackberry’s kicked off the post PC era. They freed mobile workers from being chained to their PCs, letting them email and be productive anywhere. In fact, RIM pioneered working from anywhere at any time.

Car Color Changes With Mood

Many of us might have heard about sixth sense and technologies like virtual thoughts, many experiments are still being conducted to understand how Human Brain works so that our feelings can be best understood and act accordingly.

Now this technology has reached to a next level wherein Sensors detect the drivers mood and change the color of the car accordingly….AMAZING RIGHT, lets check out some more information about this….

The technological world of the 21st century owes a tremendous amount to advances in electrical engineering, specifically, the ability to finely control the flow of electrical charges using increasingly small and complicated circuits. And while those electrical advances continue to race ahead, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania are pushing circuitry forward in a different way, by replacing electricity with light.

Amphibian Technology

Many of us have heard about Amphibian animals like Frog,Crocodile etc which can live both on Land and Water….

Technology has risen up to such an extent where even a same Vehicles Can also travel both on Water and Land….So here comes the AMPHIBIAN TECHNOLOGY

We have 3 varieties the Aquada ,the Humdinga , the Quadski….

 

The Aquada

 

The Aquada is a revolutionary showcase of High Speed Amphibian (HSA) technology.

This radical new breed of vehicle has been precision engineered to the most exacting standards. It has undergone an extensive safety testing programme and complies with appropriate marine and road safety regulations.

Entry to the water is via beach, boat ramp, slipway or directly from the water’s edge. Once afloat, the transition from road vehicle to High Speed Amphibian (HSA) is effortlessly achieved.

Simply press a button and drive into the water. The wheels automatically rise and as you press the accelerator nearly a ton of thrust pushes the Aquada onto the plane. The whole process takes less than 12 seconds. The Aquada can plane at over 30mph.

Powerful enough to tow a water-skier and with a style and class of its own, the Gibbs Aquada is the perfect leisure vehicle. It combines the thrill of an open top car with the sheer exhilaration experienced in a high performance speedboat.

The Aquada is the new name for freedom!

 

The Humdinga

 

Although the new application utilizes the same patented HSA technological platform as the Aquada, it shares no common component parts or systems with its predecessor. It has been designed specifically to access remote and hostile terrain. The Humdinga can comfortably transport five people complete with luggage/supplies on at least twice as much of the world’s surface as previous vehicles.

The Humdinga illustrates the scalability and versatility of HSA technology. HSA Technology can make vehicles ranging from passenger cars to SUVs to buses and trucks High Speed Amphibians.

The Humdinga transforms from land to water mode at a touch of a button. The wheels retract, the power train switches from the wheels to a jet propulsion system and the vehicle is in amphibious mode. In just a few seconds the driver is planing at a speed of forty miles per hour.

“This 4WD HSA demonstrates that the technology is adaptable for a whole range of applications. It took us 8 years, a million man-hours and tens of millions of pounds to develop HSA technology. With this latest vehicle, I’m sure that the technology’s potential is clear for all to see.”, comments Alan Gibbs, founder of Gibbs Technologies.

On land the Humdinga can accelerate from 0-60 in 9.2 seconds and on water can reach the ‘plane’ in less than 10 seconds. It has a curb weight of 2000kg, has all wheel independent air suspension and runs on regular unleaded petrol. The vehicle is 5400mm in length, 1850mm in height and 2000mm in width.

 

The Quadski

 

Gibbs Technologies, the world’s only High Speed Amphibian (HSA) technology specialist, today unveiled a prototype of the first commercially viable high-speed personal sports amphibian – Quadski.

Quadski is the third demonstration of Gibbs’ HSA technology following the successes of the Aquada and the Humdinga. It is capable of travelling up to 50 mph (72 kph) on land and water and makes the transition at the flick of a switch.

Commenting on the launch of the Quadski prototype, Alan Gibbs, the founder of Gibbs Technologies said, “Quadski is both exciting and practical with a multitude of uses”.

“I know consumers will love the fun of driving a Quadski on land one minute and then head straight into the sea or river the next. But there is a very serious side to Quadski as well: emergency services and aid workers will be able to reach areas and people no two or four wheel drive vehicle could reach.”
