FitBit

There is never a dearth of news from Google, is there? Google’s parent company Alphabet is creating a ripple with potential acquisition of FitBit, a leading wearable brand.  FitBit is known for transforming the wearable technology and its recent failing too. Spokesperson of both companies declined to comment. However, the shares of FitBit rose by 27%. Earlier, FitBit became the first brand to popularize wearable technology with quality software, great

Drones

In the last few years, researchers have developed drones to inspect offshore sites. However, most of these products do not function on their own, failing to eliminate human intervention. Now, researchers from the United Kingdom have developed a drone that autonomously insects offshore sites. According to the researchers, the product can help cut down cost and time spent for repair and inspection. Human Intervention Only for Serious Repair Most offshore

Wi-Fi

A team of researchers from BYU have developed a protocol that can extend the range of Wi-Fi-enabled devices. Professionals in computer engineering at BYU came together to study the specifics of receiving and sending signals. The new technology is free of use of fresh hardware. Increasing signal range of IoT devices does not require add-on equipment. Motion detectors and door sensors are two important devices that come under the ambit

3D Printer

In a breakthrough development, scientists at the Northwestern University have developed a superfast futuristic 3D printer. The superfast device can print an adult human size object in only a couple of hours.  The device based on a novel technology high-area rapid printing (HARP) enables massive throughput for manufacture of products on demand. Meanwhile, efforts to push limits of legacy 3D printing technologies is the aim for a very long time.
