New and Emerging Technology News part 183

OpenROV is an underwater remote-operated vehicle that will be available in a kit or fully-...
Underwater remote-operated vehicles, or ROVs, are almost impossibly fascinating. They’re controlled by a surface-based operator, who watches their real-time video feed and pilots them via a long umbilical cable. Although the big-league multi-million-dollar ROVs are used for things such as exploring the wreck of the Titanic or studying hydrothermal vents, hobbyists have quite a bit of fun using their own home-built versions just to see what’s under the surface of the local lake. Unfortunately, even to build one yourself, you need to be pretty technically skilled. That could change, however, as the OpenROV project is developing “easy to assemble” kits – it may even provide li’l ROVs that are ready to go, right out of the box.  Read More
An illustration depicting one of the lattice-like electrodes, over top of one of the elast...
A lot of devices, such as shock absorbers, currently use elastomers to help minimize vibrations. While the malleable, yielding qualities of these materials do indeed allow them to absorb energy that would otherwise take the form of rattles and jolts, they are nonetheless passive – basically, they just sit there. Researchers from Germany’s Fraunhofer Institute for Structural Durability and System Reliability, however, are developing a new system in which elastomers actually “fight back” against vibrations.  Read More
The PlugBook can be kept on a bookshelf and easily grabbed whenever needed
Power cables are a necessary evil of technological life - until we all get wireless electricity - and while a tangled and fully loaded power strip is annoying, we always find there's something insanely irksome about trying to find your seemingly hidden (and equally tangled) 'spare' extension cord. Well, PlugBook is a power strip/extension cord which has been designed to look like a book ... so that it can be neatly stored on your bookshelf when not in use.  Read More
Wahoo Fitness has launched the world's first Bluetooth 4.0 wireless speed/cadence sensor, ...
Using a combination of apps on a smartphone and hardware attached to a bike is undoubtedly a more convenient and often less expensive way to wirelessly provide riders with performance data than plumping for dedicated setups of the kind manufactured by Garmin and Sigma. After all, most of us carry our phones around wherever we go. The first such combination to make use of Bluetooth Smart technology is the new Blue SC Speed and Cadence Sensor for the iPhone 4S and 3rd gen iPad from Wahoo Fitness.  Read More

The Mugen Electric - Honda's first electric race bike
Electric motorcycle racing became a lot more interesting today when the TT Zero race at the Isle of Man was run and the top three riders all finished at average speeds of more than 100 mph. The win went to the Segway MotoCzysz team with Michael Rutter producing a lap of 104.56 mph but the extra strong showing of a 102.215 mph lap on the Mugen (Honda) ridden by John McGuinness indicates the electric bike racing scene is going to be very competitive in the near future.  Read More

With the release of its Intense PC back in March, Israel's CompuLab proved yet again that you don't have to sacrifice performance for size when opting for a fanless mini-PC. The company has further strengthened that position by becoming the first to market a low power, small form factor computer featuring Intel's new third generation Core i7 processor.  Read More
Square Enix, developer of the Final Fantasy series, premiered an impressive tech demo at E...
Every E3 brings a fresh crop of video game trailers, each with more impressive visuals than the last. A new tech demo from Square Enix however may have blown them all out of the water in terms of graphics, and even give the KARA demo from a few months back some competition. The demo, titled Agni's Philosophy, was created with a new engine from Luminous Studios that depicts real-time graphics on par with pre-rendered CGI and will likely be used in a future installment of the acclaimed Final Fantasy series.  Read More

It's a human-electric hybrid for the water.  Read More
The Transformer All in One brings together Windows 8, and Android 4.0 ASUS has unveiled a prototype of its latest all-in-one PC at Computex 2012. The Transformer AiO is the first desktop targeted device designed to run both Android 4.0 and the upcoming Windows 8 OS, and while an all-in-one case design isn't new, the difference here is that the 18.4-inch multi-touch display can be completely detached to function as a (very large) tablet.  Read More
Bia comes in a variety of colors and band styles
GPS watches already come in all shapes and sizes (at least if you consider "heavy, square brick" and "massive discus" all shapes and sizes). Now they have a gender. The new Bia sports watch claims to be the first GPS sports watch designed for women, by women. In addition to bringing a little estrogen to a testosterone-dominated market, the watch adds a slim form factor, a separate GPS-GSM unit and a smart set of features.  Read More
NASA has been given two ex-spy satellites with optics superior to those of the Hubble Spac...
NASA’s collection of space telescopes just got a bit bigger thanks to an extraordinary gift from America's National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) intelligence agency. The space agency announced on Monday that the NRO has given it two surplus spy satellites that are more advanced than the Hubble Space Telescope. If the money can be found for a mission for the spy “birds” then NASA will not only have two possible replacements for the retiring Hubble, but also an added ability to scan the skies for supernovae, locate new exoplanets and even seek the answer to the fate of the universe.  Read More

A team of researchers at the University of Texas is exploring the possibility of electrically stimulating the visual cortex of the brain to create simple images and shapes. This development could lead to a visual prosthetic device that would effectively "trick" the brain of visually impaired or blind people into seeing ... and such a device, the authors say, is only about five years away.  Read More
Toyota will begin testing its V2H technology later this year at approximately 10 of its To...
Electric vehicle charging has been a hot topic for years, but it's mostly been a one-way discussion: how the EV charges from a given home charging system. Toyota turns the conversation around, experimenting with how the home can draw power from the EV. Toyota's vehicle-to-home (V2H) charging system offers two-way charging between the Prius Plug-in and a home power supply.  Read More


The sensor in the RX100 is around four times larger than the 1/2.3'-type used in many poin...
Compact cameras are great in that their pocket-sized form means you can always have them with you when you need to take a photo. Unfortunately this 'pocketability' often comes at a price ... the small sensors manufacturers are typically limited to using provide less than stellar image quality. Sony has revealed the Cyber-shot RX100, a compact camera with a larger than usual 1.0-inch sensor which measures 13.2 x 8.8mm.  Read More
Startup Tactus Technology has developed a touchscreen display with buttons that can rise o...
California startup Tactus Technology recently caused plenty of "oohs" and "aahs" at SID Display Week 2012. The prototype touchscreen the company presented featured buttons that can rise out of the flat surface of the screen at the user's whim, disappearing completely once they are no longer needed.  Read More
The NANOMOSKI process utilizes silica nanoparticles to render clothing mosquito-repellant
For many of us, mosquitoes are an irritating pest that can ruin any number of outdoor activities. For many others, however, they are also spreaders of malaria – a disease which infected approximately 216 million people in 2010, according to an estimate by the World Health Organization. Repeatedly slathering on bug repellant is one way of dealing with the insects, although wearing clothing made from mosquito-repellant fabric sounds a lot more preferable. While existing mozzie-unfriendly garments have some limitations, Portuguese tech company Nanolabel has developed a new treatment process that it claims is far superior to traditional technology.  Read More
For less than $100, the Habitents turns your Prius into a functional sleeping shelter
We've seen a lot of campers here at Gizmag. Typically, they're made for big, gas-drunk trucks, SUVs and vans - vehicles with the size and hauling capacity to spend the night in. What we're not used to seeing is campers made for small, fuel-frugal hybrids. But the Habitents is just that - a camper extension for the Toyota Prius.  Read More
The MH-2 telepresence robot mimics the movements of its remote operator (Photo: Yamagata U... The MH-2 is a telepresence robot like no other we have seen, and believe us, we’ve seen our share of weird robots. This tiny humanoid figure is always there for you, perching on your shoulder, ready to be remotely inhabited by your friends. Conceived by the researchers at Yamagata University in Japan, MH-2 is designed to imitate human behavior accurately enough for you to feel like your friend is actually there with you.  Read More
A rendering of the proposed production version of the Sports Walker
Among other things, multiple sclerosis can result in a loss of balance and severe weakness in the legs – not exactly traits that would improve someone’s volleyball game. As a dedicated player, however, Toronto’s Brian Light wasn’t about to let his own MS keep him from participating in the sport he loved. Instead, he designed and built his own hands-free wheeled support device, known as the Sports Walker. Not only did it extend the amount of time that he was able to continue playing in a standing position, but it also won him an international award.  Read More
The N91 solar optical mouse from Bondidea features a built-in lithium battery charged by a... Although we featured the world's first exclusively solar-powered computer mouse as long ago as 2007, I think it's fair to say that such solutions haven't exactly taken off. One reason could be a fear of being left unable to click and scroll if there's not enough light to juice up the I/O peripheral. Bondidea's N91 wireless optical mouse gets round any potential power fail anxiety by running from either battery or the built-in PV panel.  Read More

The next iPhone may follow in the iPad's footsteps and become known as simply 'the new iPh...
As the fifth anniversary of the original iPhone's launch approaches later this month, the Apple rumor mill has been particularly active and everything from a larger screen, radical case design and all-new dock connector have been cited as forthcoming alterations to Apple’s flagship mobile device. While nobody outside Apple’s inner circle can be sure exactly what the famously tight-lipped company has planned for the iPhone, a skeptical reading of rumors makes it possible to build up a picture of what we know, or rather what we think we know, so far.  Read More

New results from CERN today would appear to confirm that last year’s findings by the OPERA experiment which appeared to suggest that neutrinos could travel faster than light were incorrect. A faulty element of the experiment’s fiber optic timing system has been cited by CERN as a likely cause for the error.  Read More
The TMG EV P002 Toyota Motorsport is hoping for a spectacular few months in the middle of 2012, most notably with the race debut for the TS030 HYBRID in the Le Mans 24 hour and now for an EV assault on Pikes Peak. Not content with challenging the all-conquering Audi Team Joest with its hybrid 3400 cc V8 and supercapacitor energy storage system, the company has unveiled a new development of its TMG EV P001 car (which set a very respectable EV lap record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 2011) dubbed the P002 with which it will compete in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in Colorado on July 8.  Read More

Every year, once E3 rolls around, most gamers know what to expect. Almost anyone setting foot in the LA Convention Center already knew there is going to be a new Call of Duty, a new Halo, a new Assassin's Creed, more Kinect dancing games, and this year, the Wii U. But then there are those announcements which made a huge splash because, up until the show, almost no one had any idea they even existed.  Read More
Designed to address our need to sometimes be alone in an increasingly interconnected world...
Designed to address our need to sometimes be alone in an increasingly interconnected world, HUSH by UK-based designer Freyja Sewell is a "womb-shaped" pod fashioned from 100-percent woolen felt designed for quiet moments of contemplation or rest. At least that's how Sewell sees it: HUSH "inspires very different feelings in different people," she writes. But it can also be reshaped into a beanbag-like armchair - duality that makes HUSH as viable an option for the smaller space-constrained dwelling as it is the hipster-infested open plan office.  Read More
The Klymit Ulaar is a waterproof shell with on-the-fly insulation adjustment
The Klymit Ulaar Jacket doesn't puff you out like a down jacket, and it doesn't make you pile on sweaters like a shell. Instead, it serves as both shell and insulated jacket using an innovative insulator: argon gas. You can pump the jacket full of gas (insulation) when you're cold and let some of the gas out when you're warm.  Read More

ETH scientist have developed a specially contoured silicone that accelerates wound healing...
Even the smallest wound is potentially serious, so something as simple as a finger plaster and a little disinfectant can make the difference when it comes to preventing a nasty infection. But a dressing can do more than just keep out germs. That’s the idea behind work of the Laboratory of Thermodynamics in Emerging Technologies (ETH) in Zurich, Switzerland, where Prof. Dimos Poulikakos and his team of engineers and biologists are developing a new plaster that not only protects a wound from infection, it can also accelerate healing through the use of specially contoured silicone that promotes cell migration.  Read More
Sity - Shanghai city architectural concept designed to resemble a Chinese dragon
Architecture has the power to completely change its surroundings, creating a focal point which influences an area much larger than that which it inhabits. This means that when it comes to rebuilding a locale from the ground up, a bold new approach is needed, one which looks to the future while tapping into the past. Bulgarian firm Sonik Module believes it has accomplished this tricky balancing act with Sity, a conceptual design envisioned as the centerpiece for the redevelopment of an area along the Suzhou Creek in Shanghai.  Read More
The DASH robot, a cockroach and a gecko are all capable of running to the edge of a ramp, ... Anyone who has tried to kill a cockroach knows just how difficult they can be to be to capture. Not only can they squeeze through very narrow gaps, but they can also instantly accelerate to a running speed of approximately 50 body lengths per second. Recently, biologists at the University of California, Berkeley realized that the insects have another escape skill at their disposal. When they get to the edge of a surface such as a table, they can hook it with their rear claws and swing around 180 degrees to land upside down on its underside – a maneuver also performed by geckos. A team of UC Berkeley researchers subsequently did what any of us would do upon gaining that knowledge, and set out to get a robot to perform the action.  Read
The study of this marine crustacean may lead to lighter and more resistant materials that ...
The mantis shrimp is a fascinating creature that has the ability to punch its prey into submission with a club that accelerates underwater at around 10,400 g. By studying the secrets behind this formidable weapon, a Californian researcher hopes to develop an innovative, hi-tech material that is one third the weight and thickness of existing body armor.  Read More
The Jeep Wrangler Sahara reference vehicle does a vanity shot

Tired of having to hold back your hair when you stick your mouth under the tap to rinse the toothpaste foam out of your mouth? Don’t like using that water-spotty, rarely-washed glass? Well, perhaps the Rinser toothbrush is what you need.  Read More
500 feet (152 meters) and 101 segments of kayak After touring the United States in a bespoke boot-mobile earlier this year, L.L. Bean has turned its attention to the water in its continuing centenary celebration. The 100-year-old outfitter has built what it believes to be the world's largest modular kayak.  Read More
Dr. Hicks' mirror (top) as compared to a regular flat driver's side mirror
While there are already various anti-blind-spot automobile mirrors on the market, these all tend to incorporate a very curved surface that drastically distorts the appearance of objects seen in them – given that drivers use their mirrors to avoid getting in accidents, it’s kind of important that those mirrors show the surrounding traffic as it really is. That’s why Dr. Andrew Hicks, a mathematics professor at Philadelphia’s Drexel University, has created a side mirror that eliminates the blind spot, while causing almost no distortion.  Read More
A catalog of games will be another channel on Samsung's new LED 7000 series Smart TVs

The smartphones of today are certainly technological wonders. Besides their powerful processors and multitude of available apps, most of them are also equipped with sensors such as cameras, microphones, GPS, accelerometers and gyroscopes. While those sensor-laden phones allow users to perform a broad variety of activities, the folks at Nokia believe that those or similar devices could do much more – particularly when it comes to healthcare. That’s why the company is sponsoring the Nokia Sensing X CHALLENGE. The US$2.25 million global competition is intended to “stimulate the development of sensors and sensing technology to drastically improve and expand the quality and access to healthcare across a wide variety of settings for consumers all around the globe.”  Read More
Canon has unveiled its new flagship Rebel DSLR camera, with sensor-based Hybrid AF, multi-...
At face value, all the headline-grabbing features of Canon's new EOS Rebel T4i DSLR Camera (EOS 650D in Europe) look identical to those of the T3i (EOS 600D) before it, but not everything is at it first appears. Canon says that the new flagship Rebel model is its most consumer-friendly DSLR to date, and is the first of the company's cameras to feature a sensor-based hybrid AF system that allows for continuous autofocus while recording video.
