Research Breakthrough: Time Cloak Is Created

A group of physicists have recently created a time cloak that is able to hide an event from time itself. One of the researchers had a breakthrough, at Cornell University. The researcher, Moti Friedman led the pack.

The cloak works in part of a duality between space and time in electromagnetic theory, and although the explanation is rather long winded, I am going to try to give the basics in a digestible format.

Electromagnetic Sheet Powers Up And Networks Devices

The National Institute of Information and Communications Technology showed an efficient wireless power transmission system, demonstrated at the Wireless Japan 2011 conference. The system works as a 2D communications device and requires the user to place a gadget on the flat board.

The board then generates electromagnetic waves towards the gadget, rather than having an even distribution throughout the board. The underlying concept behind the system uses a 2.4GHz high frequency signal to capture the electromagnetic waves where the gadget is placed.

Hybrid Tractors Reduce Fuel Consumption By 50%

Heavy duty machinery, such as tractors have been used for mining and agriculture for a very long time. When these heavy duty machines are used, not only do they use up a lot of fuel and produce byproduct carbon emissions, but they are used for hours on end- usually to get some type of job done.

Fortunately, researchers at Aalto University in Finland have taken the success of hybrid technology from cars and implanted that knowledge to build hybrid machines. The heavy duty hybrids use both combustion and electric engines, cutting fuel consumption in half.

Thinking Med School? Let This App Get You There

Medical school is no doubt an arduous process. One has to fulfill a number of years of Chemistry, Math, Physics, and Biology coursework. How would you like your journey to be made just a bit easier? A company called Regular Rate and Rhythm Software has just announced Med Mnemonics v12. The app is designed to serve as a learning resource for medical memory aids, and perform on the iPhone, iPhone Touch, iPad, Android, and Windows Phone 7.

Apple’s Next Generation Keyboard- Leaked

If you’re reading this blog right now, you’ve used a keyboard. While keyboards do not differ a whole lot, they do carry subtle changes. Some are thinner, thicker, illuminated, black, white, glossy, matte, corded, wireless, you get the point. According to a recent patent filed by Apple, it looks like the company known for its innovation is working on a keyboard that is not only thinner but offers the same comfort provided by a full-sized keyboard.

How does Apple create a product that produces the same tactile feedback that users are accustomed to feeling on a regular keyboard? Simple, Apple will make air flow out from the keyboards. The idea is that the air blowing out…
