Despite our best efforts, accurately predicting the weather remains about as easy as accurately predicting the next winning Powerball numbers. But with the installation of a new type of humidity sensor, the fleets of commercial passenger jets that inhabit our skies could soon provide meteorologists an unprecedented look at the sky — in real-time.
The ability to passively track people within a given space is every retailer’s dream (and every conspiracy theorist’s nightmare). Those dreams recently took a step closer to reality with the debut of a new people-tracking system from MIT.
If you’ve got school-age kids, you know the worst thing about taking them to the land of learning is the veritable brigade of soft-roaders clogging the street. They all seem horrible and unnecessary, but the Ford Kuga is the first one you’ll actually want to buy.
A few weeks ago, we wrote about a tiny micro-bot designed to be injected into a patient’s eye and controlled via magnet — a speck-sized eye surgeon. This week, a group of Berkeley researchers published a study positing a similar concept, except the ‘bots are inside your brain. And they’re the size of dust particles. It’s called neural dust. Of course.
Not content to just turn paint into a power source, revolutionise headphones, suck pollution out of oceans, bestow us with hyper-fast upload times and pretty much anything else you can dream up, graphene is at it once again. The supermaterial that keeps on giving is opening the door to better low-light photos in the form of an image sensor that can catch light 1000 times better than traditional sensors. Oh, and it uses 10 times less energy too.
We knew that the Kinect would be coming to Windows eventually, but it looks like Xbox One’s groundbreaking new Kinect sensor won’t be stuck tethered to a console for long. Microsoft has just announced that the new and improved motion-tracking system will definitely be hitting Windows sometime next year — but exactly when remains hazy.
Researchers at Panasonic’s imaging division have found a way to increase the sensitivity of digital camera sensors, which, in turn, equates to almost double the brightness in photos taken in low-light conditions. But the discovery has nothing to do with the sensor itself; instead, the company has improved the colour processing filter placed in front of it.
