Tesla Unveils Plug-in Hybrid Mobile Home

Elon Musk understands that many people are so desperate to own one of Tesla’s incredible sexy electric cars that they make great sacrifices to afford such an extravagant purchase. In an attempt to ease the burden, and perhaps expand their market share, Tesla unveiled plans for their next ground-breaking innovation: a plug-in hybrid mobile home. The “Model H,” as the mobile home has been dubbed, looks suspiciously like a gigantic Model X on steroids, and will fill a niche in the market that has not previously been tapped.

Tesla’s mobile home has been designed specifically for those so desperate for the Tesla dream that they have defaulted on their homes to afford their precious Model S. Brainiac inventor Musk and his team spent a lot of time planning the features to be included in the Model H. Source: Inhabitat Related articles in News.

Samsung is building a revolutionary ROLL-UP smartphone

Samsung’s love for devices that can be folded, twisted, rolled or otherwise manipulated is nothing new. Well, the South Korean company has recently filed yet another patent application pertaining to the field but, in a first, this patent is all about the interaction side of the screen twisting. As per the patent, the folding or rolling action — depending upon the device in question — should do one of several possible things, nearly all of which are concerned with triggering interaction with at least one other application. The potential uses of this, are of course many and varied. A Guide to Buying Your First Laser Cutter. If there’s one tool that’s coveted by Makerspaces more than any other, it has to be the laser cutter.

Google Says Its Quantum Computer Really Works - "It's 100 Million Times Faster Than PC" If you follow the developments being made in the world of quantum computing, you must have heard the name of D-Wave systems.

Google Says Its Quantum Computer Really Works - "It's 100 Million Times Faster Than PC"

This controversial company calls itself the first company to make commercially available quantum computers. Two years ago, NASA and Google bought a D-Wave 2X quantum computing system and the internet giant seems pretty satisfied with it. Google has said that it has proof that D-Wave 2X really uses quantum physics to solve complex problems. Google's quantum computer is 100 million times faster than your laptop. Google has been sharing more details about its quantum computing project, which it runs in partnership with NASA.

Google's quantum computer is 100 million times faster than your laptop

The tech company says its mammoth D-Wave 2X quantum computing machine has been figuring out algorithms at 100,000,000 times the speed that a traditional computer chip can, and that could make a huge difference in the processing power at our disposal in the future. In quantum computing (closely linked to quantum mechanics), quantum bits (or 'qubits') can simultaneously hold values of 1, 0, or both, rather than being set to 1 or 0 as traditional electronic bits are. The qubits are tiny particles suspended in temperatures just above absolute zero, and as more qubits are added, the available processing power goes up exponentially. This new 'skyscraper' chip could make computers run 1,000 times faster. The Qwerkywriter Bluetooth Keyboard » Review.

Your WiFi Router Has a Superpower You Didn’t Know. WindChill - A Food Preservation Unit. Our design concept aims to take on the problem of food stores spoiling in areas with poor access to electricity.

WindChill - A Food Preservation Unit

The goals of our alternate food preservation unit are to not require an electricity grid, to be significantly less expensive than a modern refrigeration methods and to be able to be incorporated into the regions of poverty where it is most needed. The cooling mechanism is inspired by temperature regulation approaches seen in mammals and insects and is a new way of approaching issues in the food system.

Coral and termites inspired the first step, kangaroos, bees, and elephants the second, and lastly meerkats and burrowing animals and leaves the third. Google’s Project Vault: A Secure Computer On A Micro SD Card. Google’s Project Vault is something equivalent to these security measures and aims to protect user’s important data. Talking of the analogies, the usual SIM card is something that is already present in a phone and protects stuff important to carriers.

The Vault houses an ARM processor running ARTOS – a secure operating system focused on security and user privacy. It features NFC chip and antenna to ensure the correct authorization. Also, there’s are cryptographic services that include services like hashing, signing, encryption along with a hardware random number generator. TechCrunch writes that Project Vault provides 2-factor authorization that will be easy to implement and the system will see it as storage device with a standard file system that will work with all operating systems including Windows, Android, OS X and Linux.
