Skin made of silicon can now control cell phones

Posted by in categories: computing, mobile phones

Circa 2015 one day a whole skin computer could be not just a computer in skin but actually made from skin.


Forget click wheels, computer mice, and touch screens, we can now control our cell phones with our forearms.

How Axions May Explain Time’s Arrow

Physicists Demonstrate How to Reverse of the Arrow of Time

Posted by in category: physics

Circa 2017


One of the more curious challenges in physics is to understand the nature of time. At the microscopic level, the laws of physics are symmetric with respect to time—they work just as well whether time runs forwards or backwards. But at the macroscopic level, processes all have a preferred direction. The great physicist Arthur Eddington called this the “arrow of time.”

Just why this arrow points in one direction but not the other is one of the great scientific puzzles. The standard answer is that the arrow of time follows from the Second Law of Thermodynamics—that disorder, or entropy, always increases in a closed system.

Looking Back on The First-Ever Photo of Quantum Entanglement

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

O,.o.


This stunning image captured last year by physicists at the University of Glasgow in Scotland is the first-ever photo of quantum entanglement — a phenomenon so strange, physicist Albert Einstein famously described it as ‘spooky action at a distance’.

It might not look like much, but just stop and think about it for a second: this fuzzy grey image was the first time we’d seen the particle interaction that underpins the strange science of quantum mechanics and forms the basis of quantum computing.

Quantum mechanics in the brain

Planet Earth Report –“The Age of Pandemics to MEGA Thruster Taps into Fabric of the Universe”

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, space travel

“Planet Earth Report” provides descriptive links to headline news by leading science journalists about the extraordinary discoveries, technology, people, and events changing our knowledge of Planet Earth and the future of the human species.

The Universe Might Be Too Thin, Scientists may have found a new crack in our understanding of the universe, reports The Atlantic and Quanta. The cosmos is starting to look a bit weird. For a few years now, cosmologists have been troubled by a discrepancy in how fast the universe is expanding. They know how fast it should be going, based on ancient light from the early universe, but apparently the modern universe has picked up too much speed—a clue that scientists might have overlooked one of the universe’s fundamental ingredients, or some aspect of how those ingredients stir together.
