3 Dimensional printing is a process of making three-dimensional solid objects from a digital model. 3 Dimensional Printing is a process under development at MIT for the rapid and flexible production of prototype parts, end-use parts, and tools directly from a CAD model. 3D printing is achieved using additive processes, where an object is created by laying down successive layers of material. 3D printing is different from traditional machining techniques as they mostly rely on the removal of material by drilling, cutting etc.
This concept is widely accepted on a very large scale. In a traditional or fat-client environment, applications are stored locally, and data is stored centrally. Whenever we have to open a file, the entire file is transferred to the local PC, with the results being saved back across the LAN/WAN to the central storage area. Server/client architecture handle this process slightly differently, but processing still takes place at the local PC. [Read more…]
BrainGate technology is a branch of science defining how computers and the human brain can mesh together. It is a brain implant system. The sensor, which is implanted into the brain, monitors brain activity in the patient and converts the intention of the user into computer commands or to the subject’s desired movement. [Read more…]
During the past decade, many different computer systems supporting high-performance computing have emerged. Cluster computing is a form of computing in which a group of computers is linked together so that they can act like a single entity. Clusters are usually deployed to improve performance and availability over that of a single computer while typically [Read more…]
Before talking about Ethical Hacking, let’s discuss what hacking is. Hacking can be defined as the practice of modifying the features of a system, in order to accomplish a goal outside of the creator’s original purpose. In general words, hacking is unauthorized use of computer and network resources. Some other specialists refer it to the hobby or profession of working with computers. [Read more…]
London: Legendary British Renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has launched the most powerful shared-memory supercomputer. During the launch, which is part of the Numerical Cosmology 2012 workshop at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences at the University of Cambridge, Hawking said, “We have made spectacular advances in cosmology and particle physics recently.” The COSMOS supercomputer is part of the Science and Technology Facilities Council DiRAC High Performance Computing facility, a national service for UK cosmologists, astronomers and particle physicists, as well as non-academic users.
He said,”Cosmology is now a precision science, so we need machines like COSMOS to reach out and touch the real universe, to investigate whether our mathematical models are correct.”
Hawking also expressed hope that humankind will soon find an ultimate theory which, in principle, would enable the forecasting of anything that happens in the universe.
Hawking added, “I hope that we will soon find an ultimate theory which, in principle, would enable us to predict everything in the universe.”
The COSMOS consortium’s current programme of research aims to advance the understanding of the origin and structure of the universe, primarily through the scientific exploitation of the cosmic microwave sky.
“Even if we do find the ultimate theory, we will still need supercomputers to describe how something as big and complex as the universe evolves, let alone why humans behave the way they do!”, Hawking said.
Jeremy Yates, the Project Director for DiRAC, said, “The COSMOS supercomputer is vital part of the DiRAC Facility. DiRAC now offers five leading systems to UK researchers, two of which are in Cambridge.It allows the UK cosmology and extra-solar planet research communities to take a leading role in understanding how structure was formed in the very early universe and the composition of the atmospheres of extra-solar planets.”
Yes, you read it right – Digital Jewelry !!!! Mostly, when we heard about Jewelry, various ornaments comes into our mind. It is natural as Jewelry is worn for many reasons i.e for aesthetics, as a symbol of affiliation or commitment or even to impress others. Researchers are trying to change the way we think about the Jewelry we wear. It may seem surprising today, maybe not tomorrow. The latest computer craze has been to be able to wear wireless computers.“Digital Jewelry” looks to be the next upcoming sizzling fashion trend of the technological wave. In the next wave of mobile computing devices, our jewelry might double as our cell phones, personal digital assistants (PDAs) and GPS receivers. [Read more…]
The world today is in search for the new technology and even has contributed certain inventions in the field of science that are none less than miracles. The one such contribution is provided by Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT). It has announced technology Redtacton. Different services that we see everywhere are genuinely user-friendly and one will require technologies that enable communication between people and objects in close proximity. Focusing on the naturalness, inevitability, and sense of security conveyed by touching in everyday life, this article describes human area networking technology that enables communication by touching, which we call RedTacton.
