It’s one thing to produce nanoscale devices, but it’s another to study and improve on them — they’re so small they can’t reflect enough light to get a good look. A breakthrough might make that possible, however. UC Riverside researchers have built technology that squeezes tungsten lamp light into a 6-nanometer spot at the end of a silver nanowire. That lets scientists produce colour imaging at an “unprecedented” level, rather than having to settle for...

Apple’s augmented reality headset could pack a surprise, according to the latest analyst predictions, with suggestions of a more gradual dive into smart glasses upended with the idea of a more ambitious first product. Long the topic of rumour – one which Apple seems happy to periodically stoke – the AR wearable would arguably be the biggest product announcement for the Cupertino firm since the original iPhone. As was the case with the iPhone, Apple...

Back in September, Samsung launched its two new smartphone camera sensors – 200MP ISOCELL HP1 sensor and 50MP ISOCELL GN5. Image Credit: lowyat.net The ISOCELL HP1 is said to be the world’s first 200MP resolution sensor and it makes use of new pixel-binning technology that improves both bright-light and low-light shooting. On the other hand, the 50MP ISOCELL GN5 is aimed to improve autofocusing performance with Samsung claiming the autofocus speed to be “instantaneous”. Image...

In context: Nvidia’s GauGAN technology has already shown what it’s capable of, turning simple sketches into photorealistic images. Since then, we saw it being employed in Nvidia Canvas, but it seems the GPU giant is aiming at higher grounds with its AI, launching a new version capable of turning words into images. Nvidia showed its GauGAN technology for the first time in 2019, but only recently did we see it being featured in a product...

In August 2022, a NASA probe called Psyche will set out to explore a giant metallic asteroid called Psyche 16, to help scientists learn more about how planets form. The way Psyche reaches its target, though, will be different from typical NASA missions. Building on the technology used in previous missions, including Dawn and Deep Space 1, solar power will help propel Psyche into deep space. If that proves successful, it could be the start of a new era of using more fuel-efficient probes for both space exploration and commercial missions. Traditional spacecraft rely on chemical reactions between a combination...

Another day, another interesting gadget making the rounds on the internet — this one is a very tall (aspect ratio-wise anyway) portable monitor with an 8.8-inch display running at a resolution of 420 by 1920. It’s called the Elsonic EK-MD088, and while its size, shape, and built-in stand make it intriguing, it also raises the question: what would you even use such a narrow monitor for? And are there better ways to spend your 14,800...

Thanks to advancements in speech and natural language processing, there is hope that one day you may be able to ask your virtual assistant what the best salad ingredients are. Currently, it is possible to ask your home gadget to play music, or open on voice command, which is a feature already found in some many devices. If you speak Moroccan, Algerian, Egyptian, Sudanese, or any of the other dialects of the Arabic language, which...

Our planet can be a lovely place sometimes, however, sooner or later, an enormous asteroid might just choose to put a premature end to our collective fun. Relative to the size of other astral bodies, it wouldn’t take much space rock to harm the world– even a 150-meter asteroid is big enough to present a “substantial hazard” to Earth. That’s why NASA has been working on DART: the Double Asteroid Redirection Test. Since bringing an Asteroid’s momentum to a complete...

Every day, billions of people turn to Google to search for answers to questions big and small. Among those searches, it’s the complex tasks — like planning a family vacation or fixing a broken appliance — that are the most challenging to solve. Complex tasks require a broadening and narrowing of searches to explore a topic or find an answer. In fact, it takes people eight searches on average to complete complex tasks. Google’s recent...

(Source: OPPO) Indian media outlet 91mobiles reported on November 22 that according to numerous sources, OPPO is moving into the marketplace of electric automobiles and plans to introduce its first EV in India in late 2023 or early 2024. In response to this report, workers of OPPO said that they had never heard of such a strategy. According to the report, OPPO has actually begun to make a progress plan for EVs, with models anticipated...
