Stephen Hawking is one of the most brilliant minds next to Albert Einstein in the 20th and 21st Century. As an acclaimed physicists in the science community, Stephen Hawking has announced another ingenious idea; why not send a nano-satellite to the nearest star system, Alpha Centauri? If we were to travel to Alpha Centauri with mankind’s fastest recorded speed at 33000 mph, this would take us approximately 43,000 years to reach. Using nano-technology, Stephen Hawking and his team created a nano-satellite, called Star Chip, and their goal is to “beam” it using laser technology to Alpha Centauri. With this idea, Star Chip can travel at 1/5 of the speed of light and reach Alpha Centauri in approximately 20 years. Star Chip will consists of standard satellite functions including a camera, which means, we will be able see images of its voyage.
With Tesla leading the electric vehicle auto industry, a Singaporean company Vanda Electronics are taking it one step further by creating An electric super car. This electric super car is like no other. And it seems well fine tuned in both internal and external design. Personally I’d pick this car over the Bbugatti Veyron any day. Enjoy the video 🙂
It’s 2017 and technology has come a long way. We have science fiction movies and TV shows where humanoid androids and robots exist, now we are one step closer to making it a reality. Along with microchips getting smaller, Artificial Intelligence getting smarter, and drones circling the sky, humanity is now creating operational machines to assist with large loads, and of course for war games. Are we one step closer to our own demise, or will we see a bright future? Enjoy the video 🙂
Right now we have i5, i6, i7 – from 4 cores to 16 cores. However, Intel is going the extra mile to add another number to their intel “i” series, which is i9. According to speculations, this new processor contains 18 cores and a 36-thread Skylake X processor. And I thought Moore’s law was at its peak, since processors are in their pinnacle point of how much thread we can fit into a micro processing chip. What’s next? Quantum?
Most children today don’t like going to school, and would rather stay in bed or skip and head somewhere else. Why is that? When I was growing up in elementary school, I found school to be unpleasantly repetitive, dull, and boring, and I’m sure we can all relate the same way. However, AltSchool, is changing tradition, and how things are taught, their goal is not just to encourage children to go to school, but make them want to go to school for the purpose of learning and to have fun. A school where you learn something new everyday…maybe like the “Magic School Bus?” Enjoy the video 🙂
Have you ever wondered…what are you eating? Or how we can feed 6 Billion people? Before technology, many wondered how we would feed the ever growing population of the human race. Think about it…crops takes a while to grow, and there are limitations, such as the location, and disturbances such as weather and insects. These are some thoughts humans were thinking prior to technology. Now that technology is in place, we can solve almost anything. And now the question is…how has technology change what we eat?

With so many vehicles on the road, specially in urban cities like New York, Tokyo, LA, and Toronto there will always be traffic and one may find it difficult to drive around in such cities, specially during their “peak” highway hours. However, Elon Musk and Tesla are proposing an automated underground highway, where vehicles are guided from point A to B using a special transportation system where traffic is controlled and monitored by technology. Check it out…
I’m sure there will be tolls, and I believe this is worth it. If I can have the option to leave traffic, and merged into the highway or head to my destination without delays, I wouldn’t hesitate paying for it.
Whoever watches or reads Marvel’s comic books should be psyched, specially if you’re an Iron Man fan. A British inventor is in the verge of making history, and revolutionizing flight technology by taking science fiction to reality by inventing a real life Iron Man suit. Enjoy the video 🙂
Looks like humanity is heading to a bright future.
Whoever grew up in the 90s, remember the Term CPU and what it does? Now the game is changing… along with quantum computers in the making and evolving, companies like Google, Microsoft and IBM are racing towards making the most powerful AI accelerators . These AI accelerators are CPUs but with intelligence. They will have the ability to learn, and adapt according to yours and PC needs. For example, similar to that in cell phones where the phone uses its sensors to turn on, off, and lower its screen brightness accordingly to save battery life, these AI accelerators will take those settings to the next level. Imagine this technology taking over lives…and when it does, do you think our lives will become dictated by technology?
We are still in the age of rocks and stones when it comes to quantum technology. To operate such technology requires a great caliber of energy and resource. For example, in order for the quantum chip to operate, you need to place it in a room that’s colder than space, colder than the coldest temperature observed in the universe which is -272 degrees Celsius.

D-Wave a Canadian Vancouver based company has unveiled a second version of their revolutionary quantum computer. The second version of this technology is now allowing developers to understand and calculate even more complex algorithm, such as, solving some issues of humanity – poverty, famine, global warming…etc.
With such powerful tool, are we one step closer to creating the Matrix?
