Technology is an ever-changing, always evolving thing. There are new technologies coming out every day and there is always something on the brink of becoming a mainstream. Here, we are going to discuss some of the latest and coming technologies of this week.
1. Dell Inspiron 17 5000 series 17.3-inch laptop for $609
If you’re in the market for an affordable big-screen laptop; take a look at the 17.3-inch Inspiron 17 5000 series from Dell. On the inside, this model sports a sixth generation dual-core 2.5GHz Intel Core i7-6500U processor and includes many more specifications.
2. ‘Superlens’ sets new limits on what you can see under a microscope
According to new studies, scientists have researched a new “superlens” and this is so powerful that it could help to see those germs that were too small for microscopes to spot. The new superlens consists of millions of spherical beads of titanium dioxide. Each bead, which is only 15 nanometers wide, is applied onto the material that the researcher wants to view.
Wang says to Live Science, “Our superlens can be used to visualize live viruses or germs that were previously invisible and allow researchers to study, for example, the interaction of medicines with live viruses in real time”.
3. Screenless Display
Screenless displays are pretty much what they sound like. Displays that display things but without a screen. Things like holograms won’t be science fiction anymore. There are some contact lenses that shoot images straight into your eyes. This is also helpful to those persons who cannot see well, they can also enjoy their day without any laser eye surgery.
4. Brain-computer interfaces
These actually already exist to a degree. Quadriplegics have been using them for years to talk through a computer. And according to the latest news, this technology is on its way now. That means there could be a point in the future where you don’t need a mouse or a keyboard anymore. You can just think things and they happen on screen. This is great for people who have disabilities, people who want to be productive, and for gamers.
5. Self- destructing battery
A new self-destructing battery can power a simple electronic device for up to 15 minutes and then dissolve in water. According to a new study, it could pave the way for so-called transient power sources for scientific instruments or tools of espionage. This newly developed battery takes 30 minutes to dissolve whereas other transient batteries relying on different chemical processes can take hours or days to break down. This battery can generate about 2.7 volts, which is similar to the electric potential produced by a pair of conventional AA batteries.
6. New computer program replicates handwriting
The UCL computer scientists have created ‘My Text in Your Handwriting’. It is a program which semi-automatically examines a sample of a person’s handwriting, which can be as little as one paragraph. And then generate new text as per the user’s wish. To generate an individual’s handwriting, the program analyses and replicates an author’s specific character choices, pen-line texture, color, inter-character ligatures, and vertical and horizontal spaces.
These are some of the latest and popular releases of this week. And we all know that new technologies are always better than the previous one with special added features.
There are also many more new technologies in the queue to launch.
