    Summary: Intel is introducing a new type of memory it claims is 1000 times faster than previous Flash memory and can store 10 times more data than DRAM. Its newly released product is five times faster than current SSDs. Called 3D XPoint, pronounced "Three D Cross Drive," intel claims its new memory is "truly transformational" for the entire computer industry.

    Apple made a big deal about the advanced technology it developed to facilitate the 3D Touch feature on the iPhone 6s. But engineers at the University of Michigan have not only recreated the feature such that it can work on any smartphone, they have also improved it by enabling phones to detect when they’re being squeezed, too.A Simple Software Update Lets Any Smartphone Detect Squeezes and Forceful Touches So how can additional interactive features be added to any smartphone without adding sensors or upgrading its hardware in any way? ForcePhone is a piece of software simply relies on two...

    Algae suit generates food to feed your constant hunger When we think of futuristic fashion, our minds often lean toward the minimalist designs of Star Trek or Tron. But maybe what we wear in the future will have more to do with what we eat than what we want to look like. That's the premise behind the algaculture symbiosis suit designed by Michael Burton and Michiko Nitta. The symbiosis suit is designed to make food for you as you go about your daily routine. A number of tubes, placed in front of your mouth, harness the CO2 you breathe and...

    This FAQ covers Andrea Rossi's technology, which combines small amounts of ubiquitous and safe Nickel and Hydrogen in the presence of proprietary catalyst under pressure and heat to generate a large amount of heat. It also addresses questions about the commercialization under way. FAQ What is the Energy Catalyzer? It is a "Cold Fusion" device developed by Italian engineer and inventor Andrea Rossi. It produces heat by placing nickel powder of very small particle size (nano-meters to micro-meters) in a pressurized hydrogen environment along with currently undisclosed (for proprietary reasons) catalysts that enhance the reaction. When this environment is heated...

    The U.S. Geological Service issued a report in April ('08) that only scientists and oilmen knew was coming, but man was it big. It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since '95) on how much oil was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota; western South Dakota; and extreme eastern Montana ... Check THIS out: The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska's Prudhoe Bay, and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign oil.

    A few weeks ago, I watched a program that talked about a new technology for cleaning up oil spills. Hair, it seems has a natural affinity for oil, and a company figured out, that hair, woven into mats, can be dropped into an oil spill, and it soaks up oil 9 (like 12 fold), and any water that gets pulled in, rolls right off the mats like..water, when pulled out of the spill, but the oil...stays in the mats until they are wrung out. During the show they demonstrated it and it was impressive. The mats can be re-used about...

    SACRAMENTO - A hotly contested bill to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in California would spur a wave of new clean-energy technology, prominent Silicon Valley venture capitalist John Doerr predicted Wednesday. Entrepreneurs ``are going to go out and compete and innovate to bring enormous solutions to the market'' if the bill passes, Doerr, a partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, said at a news conference at the Capitol. He was joined by Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez, D-Los Angeles, and executives from several alternative-energy companies. Assembly Bill 32, sponsored by Núñez and Assemblywoman Fran Pavley, D-Woodland Hills, would mandate cuts in...

    Mars' Gusev Crater and Meridiani Planum are a long way from Silicon Valley, but just getting to those spots and digging around may help bring about IT breakthroughs on Earth, according to some engineers involved with the mission. The Mars Exploration Rovers mission, in which a pair of six-wheeled rovers have gone to Mars to study the planet's makeup and look for evidence of water, is forcing engineers to deal with extraordinary conditions, not the least of which is the 106 million miles between the rovers' destination and mission controllers on Earth. However, the special demands of the months-long flight...

    NASA scientists have invented a new video technology that helps police track down criminals. NASA Science News March 26, 2003 FBI and other law enforcement officers, whose investigations are normally down-to-Earth, recently have been seeking the help of two NASA scientists who study the Sun and storms like hurricanes. Why are specialists from such different worlds working together? The NASA researchers--using their expertise and equipment for analyzing satellite video--have created a new crime-fighting software tool called VISAR. Short for Video Image Stabilization and Registration, VISAR transforms dark, jittery images captured by security systems and video cameras in police cars into...
