Researchers at the Georgia Electronic Design Center (GEDC) of Georgia Institute of Technology are working on ultra-fast wireless connectivity solutions. If current efforts eventually lead to success, it could mean the end of the wired computer. The team of researchers propose the use of extremely high radio frequencies to attain broad bandwidth...

Former professor of engineering at the University of California, Davis Paul S. Moller has always dreamed of developing a flying car. In the 1970s, he established Supertrapp Industries, a company that specializes in a device that muffles engine noise. He sold the company in the 1980s so that he could pursue his dreams, and since then has established... Read more...
Nokia has recently launched a new service that allows GPS users to pinpoint their location in one minute, as opposed to the standard three minutes that it currently takes. The service will be available to users of its N95 handset, Nokia’s flagship product. “‘It will be reliably under one minute in most countries,’ says Ralph Eric Kunz, head... Read more...
Over the years we have seen our electronic devices become smaller and more powerful. Even many of us humans are starting to slim down and tone up as the fitness fad takes hold. Now it seems that the masterminds at Compulab had both thoughts in mind when they introduced the so-called “fit-PC,” which comes with Linux preinstalled. The Haifa,... Read more...
While Steve Jobs did a good job of stealing its thunder several weeks ago with the launch of the iPhone, Waterloo-based Research In Motion is still on track and has recently been doing quite well. As Sun Tzu once said, someone on the defense is preparing for an attack, or something along those lines. Indeed, it appears that RIM is preparing... Read more...
Representatives of Clearwire and Sprint Nextel, the third largest mobile carrier in the U.S., have announced a cooperative effort to convene a national WiMax wireless broadband network, which is the upcoming 4G technology standard. WiMax mobile technology has been developed to work over 5 times faster than contemporary 3rd generation wireless... Read more...
According to a telephone interview with John Antone, VP and GM of Intel’s Asia-Pacific division, Intel is providing samples of its Penryn workstation and server CPUs to various computer makers way before the planned launch date, which is Q4 of 2007. “‘We're now broadly sampling [Penryn] for all the various platforms.’” Penryn is the code...

Researchers from the Department of Chemistry at the University of California, Riverside, have developed a type of liquid that has the ability to change color when treated with a magnetic force. The liquid is composed of iron oxide particles, each about 100nm in diameter, coated with plastic and suspended in water. Leading researcher Yadong... Read more...
George Harrison, a marketing executive at Nintendo, stated that the Game Boy name might be put to sleep after a glorious 18-year life. He points out the fact that the DS has been very successful, which means the company doesn’t need to rely on the Game Boy franchise anymore. Harrison said, "It's hard to say in the future if we will ever bring... Read more...
Intel has made a recent revision to its game plan: Conroe-based E2140 budget-class desktop CPUs will no longer be phased out, at least not until later on. Intel’s original arrangement was to reduce the price of the E2160 from $84 to $74 USD and launch the E2180 on August 26 to take the E2160’s place at $84 USD. The original plan called for...

It is still a challenge for scientists to develop a good nano-scale battery, which is why nano-scale devices are still fueled by energy sources that are much bigger than the devices themselves. One of the key problems is how to build such a small battery, and NASA has been looking at biological molecules that have self-assembling properties... Read more...
A group of Australian researchers have reportedly developed a device that allows people to manipulate their TVs, DVD players, and other electronics with a simple wave of the hand. The controller box has a built-in camera that can identify seven simple hand gestures and can be used with up to 8 different devices. The development is led by Australian... Read more...
Ever wonder how much juice your SLI gaming rig sucks up every month? You probably won’t know exactly how hard it’s digging into your pockets, but if you’re living in the UK, that might change quite soon.A new government project in the UK aimed at raising environmental awareness and fighting global warming is providing some 15,000 Britons with...

NTT DoCoMo has just announced plans to start testing its new prototype “Super 3G” system for ultra-high speed data transfer over mobile devices. Japan’s largest mobile carrier hopes to attain a remarkable 300Mbps in its testing trials over the wireless network. Although the Super 3G system will not be implemented in Japan until at least 2009,... Read more...
