The fashionable soldier of tomorrow will rip off the flak jacket and store the camo for a trip to the mall. If the military magnates at Raytheon have their way, soldiers will be donning futuristic exoskeletons before heading into combat. Sweet! Described as a "wearable robot" on the Raytheon site, the exoskeleton looks extremely clunky...yet strangely super cool. After watching a video of an engineer ripping through a solid set of pull downs of a 200 lbs, we were wondering where we could score a pair of robotic arms for our next workout.Raytheon tied the release of their super suit to the big-screen...

This experiment resembles nothing so much as the Super Size Me experiment, where a man attempted to live on McDonald's food for an entire month.  McAfee has started a 30-day study to see just how much junk people can get via spam.The Santa Clara company solicited participants through an ad on Craigslist and chose five people from each of the 10 countries in which it does business. The spam-hunters will be given new Dell laptops with minimal anti-virus protection - which they'll be allowed to keep - disposable e-mail addresses and, in some cases, small amounts of money so they can buy products...

If you thought that quad-core rig of yours was fast, wait until you see what the folks at the University of Edinburgh's Advanced Computer Facility have just unveiled..."Hector -- or the High-End Computing Terascale Resource -- can handle 63 trillion calculations per second, which is the equivalent processing power of 12,000 desktop systems and four times faster than its predecessor. The amount of calculations the system can handle is equivalent to every person on earth simultaneously carrying out 10,000 calculations per second. The supercomputer is based at the University of Edinburgh's Advanced... Read more...
Man certainly has done some amazing things pushing the boundaries of technology but what really gets our groove on here at HH is marveling at the might and muscle of human achievement in computing technologies.  Take for example, the 7th fastest super computer structure in the world, Tera-10, that is commissioned for service by France's Atomic Energy Commission.  Built on 544 Bull NovaScale servers, each featuring eight dual-core Intel Itanium processors and offering 42.9 Teraflops in performance, they better be putting it to use solving energy problems because running the thing definitely...

Researchers at MIT have developed chip architecture that runs on 70 percent less voltage than a conventional processor. The savings in power consumption would have profound effects on the battery life you could expect from portable devices. They may even require only movement and body heat to power chip-enabled sensors and communication devices. "It will extend the battery lifetime of portable devices in areas like medical electronics," said Anantha Chandrakasan, a professor of electrical engineering at MIT. "When you look at the digital processor, the fact is that we may be able to reduce the... Read more...
Microsoft launches - not hardware or software, but a comic strip.The daily Web comic, called Heroes Happen Here, features tech savvy crime fighters like Lord Firewall, who "stands between chaos and order" and says things like "begone vermin!"Heroes Happen Here is sponsored by Microsoft and Seagate.
