Technology is moving forward at the speed of light, literally. The latest innovation called the T-CUP, is the world’s fastest camera, records upto 10 Trillion frames per second. This means that it can record events in super slow mo, freezing time in the process. What is more, it even records light in slow mo, allowing you to view light, as it moves forward.What It Packs
A group of researchers at the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) in Canada have developed this technology. It uses lasers which produce ultrashort pulses in the femtosecond range, which is 10-15 seconds. This frame is far too short for human beings to visualise. This allows for [...]
The Huawei Consumer Business Group has unveiled the first patented Lithium-Silicon battery. The company promise to change the entire experience of using a smartphone with this new battery. The Lithium-Silicon battery enhances fast charging and adds to the safety as well.

Huawei says that the technology is similar to a battery which is likely to be seen in upcoming Huawei smartphones. This could mean that we would see the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro equipped with this capabilities. The new battery is more durable and has better power-retention capability. This is due to the fact that the silicon anodes [...]
Everyone dreams of changing the world and make a difference, especially college students. With grit and conviction, some of those dreams might become reality. The fact that every third person in an Indian city today is a youth makes us a cauldron of ideas and innovation. However, there are some intriguing minds in our country who didn’t curb their curiosity, instead, they spread their wings, embraced creativity and innovation and gave way to world-changing innovations.
Today we bring you a list of wonderful tech inventions by the young students of our country.

SpaceX took to twitter on Thursday to announce their new plan to send a tourist around the moon. The rocket firm, led by billionaire Elon Musk, plans to conduct this mission using its Big Falcon Rocket (BFR), specifically designed to carry people into deep space. SpaceX didn’t divulge further details. However, the tweet hinted that more will be revealed on Monday.
SpaceX has signed the world’s first private passenger to fly around the Moon aboard our BFR launch vehicle—an important step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of traveling to space. Find out who’s flying and why on Monday, September 17. [...]
NASA plans to soon start a 45-day campaign to restore communication with the Mars rover Opportunity. Opportunity, also known as MER-B or MER-1, is a robotic rover active on Mars since 2004. However, it has been unresponsive ever since after a dust-storm, encircling the planet, cut off solar power last summer. However, some people working on Opportunity are sceptical of NASA’s intention and are saying that NASA might forsake the longest operational Mars spacecraft altogether. Because the cost incurred may become too much for NASA to bear.
Opportunity is not new to such dust scares. Back in 2007, another dust storm hit the rover. However, it wasn’t close to what it [...]
An Apple Inc. self driving car was rear-ended while merging onto an expressway near the tech giant’s Silicon Valley headquarters this month. The company revealed the accident report on Friday and succinctly confirmed its intention to continue building autonomous vehicles.
Apple’s intention to step into this arena were always shrouded in mystery. However, in July, this year, when a criminal complaint was filed against an ex-Apple Inc employee for allegedly stealing self-driving car trade secrets from the Cupertino, the company was compelled to reveal some tidbits about the project. The revelation put light on the fact that the company had at least 5,000 employees [...]
The civil aviation ministry has finally given a nod to the flying of Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) on Monday. It is commonly known by the sobriquet “drones”. Prior to this, flying drones was a punishable offence under Aircraft Act and the Indian Penal Code, due to possible threat to security.
“Drones are a more than $1 billion market. Today is a big day for Indian aviation as we set eyes to unlock this market in India,” said Suresh Prabhu, Union minister for civil aviation, after the launch of Drone Regulation 1.0 on Monday. “India is known for it’s cost-effective technology and can become a global leader in drone technology [...]
Artificial Intelligence is one of those terms that induces a polarising reaction from different people. Some believe it’ll make our lives easier and others believe we will soon be an episode of Black Mirror thanks to AI. For tech companies, however, Artificial Intelligence is their new favourite phrase. Google, for example, probably set the world record for using the phrase “AI” the most number of times in an hour at Google I/O 2018. Ever since the Pixel 2 devices were launched, Google has not shied away from using this term in almost everything it does.
While AI assistants like Alexa, Google Assistant do make our lives easier to a certain extent, nobody [...]
Stephen Hawking (January 8th, 1942 – March 14th, 2018) was arguably one of the greatest minds to grace this planet. A theoretical physicist by profession, Stephen Hawking was best known for his work in the famous book, A Brief History Of Time. The British scientist was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a form of motor neurone disease. Following a tracheotomy, Hawking was able to speak using a synthesiser, a sound that has become iconic.
In the beginning, he received a computer program called the “Equalizer” from Walter Woltosz, CEO of Words Plus. However, with time, he lost the functioning of his hands and used his cheek muscles with a rate of [...]
SpaceX may be ready to test out space travel to Mars as soon as next year, according to CEO Elon Musk.
According to Musk, the company has begun building the first interplanetary ship. The aim is to test out short trips or flights by the first half of next year.
SpaceX and Tesla have a history of missing most of its deadlines. Musk hinted jokingly that the timeline for testing the travel may or may not be met.
SpaceX BFR space shuttles could have the capabilities of interplanetary transport of goods and people. Just like the Falcon space shuttles, these are also reusable for future launches.
Elon went on to add that bases set up on the moon and Mars [...]
A few weeks ago, Elon Musk revealed plans of sending a Teal Roadster inside the Falcon Heavy next year. Now, Elon Musk took to Instagram to show off a few images that is being prepped for the iconic launch into space.
Musk said that test flights are usually boring and contain mass in the form of concrete or steel blocks to test load capacity.
A Red Car for the Red Planet Test flights of new rockets usually contain mass simulators in the form of concrete or steel blocks. That seemed extremely boring. Of course, anything boring is terrible, especially companies, so we decided to send something unusual, something that made [...]
As smartphones move to an all-display and no bezels design, the onus will be on smartphone makers to produce rigid and robust phones. Even in today’s day and age, the smartphones are broken after a bad fall and if it’s a flagship phone, then the cost of repairing is huge. All of that might change if this self-healing glass becomes commercially available to smartphone makers.
Researchers from the University of Tokyo claim that they have discovered a type of glass that can heal itself, which could be used in phone displays and other devices. This can be done thanks to a new polymer called “polyether-thioureas” that lets the screen repair cracks when pressed upon. [...]
