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.

Artificial Skin

Researchers from Bristol and Paris have developed a device that takes touch technology to another level. Their device helps augment devices like phone, computer and wearables. The researchers from University of Bristol along with Telecomm Paris Tech and Sorbonne University developed the device. Further, they say that the device not only mimics the human skin color but also the resolution of sensing. Technique Behind Developing the Device The idea of

Smart Speakers

The use of smart speakers like Google Home and Amazon Echo as music players is limited. These smart speakers are quickly gaining popularity in its new role as health tracker. Wherein it helps people monitor their vital signs. Researchers at the University of Washington have come up with a newly developed skill for smart speakers that could make this device utilize white noise to monitor movements and breathing of infants.

Wildfires

People living or working in regions prone to wildfire are always under the worry of death. This prompted a few of such people to approach Professor Fumiashi Takahashi to find out if there was a commercial product that protects structures from wildfires. Takahashi, a professor at the Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, has a solution. Though, there are no commercial products in the market. Technology is Key Professor Takahashi
