China to launch world’s first quantum hack-proof satellite

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, quantum physics

Just days away from launch; what will a Chinese owned Quantum Satellite and network mean for the world particularly for the US, Canada, and Europe?


Beijing: China is set to launch the world’s first quantum communication satellite which boasts of hack-proof ultra high security features to prevent wiretapping and intercepts.

If the satellite works well, it will pave the way to a hack-proof communication system, state-run Xinhua news agency reported on Sunday.

MIT group reveals design for 3D printed fibreglass structures on Mars

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, habitats, space travel

Last month, NASA announced the winner of its 3D Printed Habitat Challenge, a competition in which entrants were tasked to develop architectural concepts. These concepts were to implement 3D printing techniques for the construction of habitats on Mars, using materials that could be sourced from the Red Planet itself.

The 3D Printed Habitat Challenge received 165 submissions, with the thirty highest scoring entries being displayed at the New York Maker Faire on September 27th. The overall winner and recipient of the $25,000 grand prize was Team Space Exploration Architecture and Clouds Architecture Office with their Mars Ice House design. The runners up were Team Gamma, who received $15,000, whilst third place was awarded to Team LavaHive.

DeepDrive: People at research labs are supposedly playing around with testing their AI’s in current gen

Video games. The last i heard AI had been up to playing and Mastering Atari 2600 games, and that was a few years ago. Figured it was only a matter of time til they started playing around with current gen stuff.

Consciousness Lives in Quantum State After Death Physicists Claim

Posted by in categories: computing, neuroscience, particle physics, quantum physics

Hmmm.


Testimonials from prominent physics researchers from institutions such as Cambridge University, Princeton University, and the Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich claim that quantum mechanics predicts some version of “life after death.”

They assert that a person may possess a body-soul duality that is an extension of the wave-particle duality of subatomic particles.

Innovative Transient Battery Is Designed To Self-Destruct In 30 Minutes

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, military, physics

A Mission Impossible Battery that self destructs.


Here at HEXAPOLIS, we have talked about biodegradable electronics that are designed to automatically dissolve once their job is done. Such self-destructing devices could be especially useful in the world of medicine, where implants currently have to be surgically removed, as well as the military. As part of a new research, scientists at the Iowa State University have devised an innovative transient battery, which as its name suggests can melt away in less than 30 minutes.

Technological advancements in recent years have allowed researchers to develop an array of self-destructing electronics that are capable of performing specific functions. Up until now, however, these devices were driven by external power sources. Previous attempts to create transient batteries largely gave birth to contraptions that lacked power, stability and a substantial shelf life. More often than not, they were also quite slow in demolishing themselves. Speaking about the research, recently published in the Journal of Polymer Science, Part B: Polymer Physics, the team stated:

Korean Scientists Develop Wearable Touchscreen that Functions even When Stretched to 1,000%

Posted by in categories: computing, mobile phones, wearables

A group of Korean materials scientists at the National University of Seoul, led by Chong-Chan Kim, had just developed an “ionic”, translucent, jelly-like computer touchpad that can be worn on the wrist and used just like a regular smartphone screen to scroll, click, drag, swipe, play video games and even type words.
