Comments Off on Samsung wants to blanket the entire planet with internet using 4,600 satellites

Facebook isn’t the only corporation with its eyes on the prize of universal Internet access . Samsung recently published an R&D report , which proposes the creation of a global network of thousands of microsatellites that can transmit information at speeds up to one terabyte per second. Though perhaps most famous for its consumer electronics, Samsung is involved in other areas of innovation, from medical technology to automated drones weaponry. With its newly published report, the South Korea-based conglomerate takes one step into the stratosphere and towards greater global internet access.

Comments Off on World’s Largest Handmade Picnic Blanket Unfurled in Switzerland!

Eating al fresco usually means a tiny table at an outdoor cafe, but a pair of twins in Switzerland are thinking much bigger. Twins  Frank and Patrik Riklin  organized the creation of a 160,000-foot-long picnic blanket they’re calling “ Bignik .” Scores of volunteers were needed to turn assemble the traditional red and white patchwork behemoth of repurposed towels, bedsheets, curtains, and other donated household textiles. This isn’t the first massive picnic blanket built by the twins, and it’s not going to be the last. Follow the link to learn more about the project.

Comments Off on Breakthrough 3D Photografting Tech Could Lead to Tiny Organic Environmental Sensors

A team from the Vienna University of Technology has developed a method to grow biological tissue with laser beams. The Austrian scientists found that using lasers, molecules could be fixed at exactly the right position in a three dimensional material, allowing for the creation of objects at a micrometer scale. The technology lead to the creation of tiny organic “labs on chips” that serve as sensors by reacting with molecules from the environment.

Could Magnetic Bacteria Lead to the Creation of Bio-Computers?

Comments Off on Could Magnetic Bacteria Lead to the Creation of Bio-Computers?

Image: Bacteria courtesy of Shutterstock Today’s computers are rapidly becoming obsolete as society demands larger storage space and faster connections. However, the future of computing may not lie in technology, but in biology. Following the example of science-fiction, which has long theorized about bio-computers , a team from the University of Leeds has used a type of bacterium which ‘eats’ iron to create a surface of magnets – just like those found in hard drives. As the bacterium ingests the iron it creates tiny magnets within itself. These nanomagnets are then able to replicate the properties of iron outside the bacteria leading to potential bio-computers.
