Creating Indestructible Self-Healing Circuits

California Institute of Technology (Caltech) researchers say they have developed self-healing integrated chips that can automatically repair themselves. During testing, the researchers destroyed various parts of the chips by zapping them with high-powered lasers, and then observed as they developed a work-around in less than a second. We “blasted half the amplifier and vaporized many of its... read more

Google Rings of Power

One ring to rule them all! You guessed it, I’m a Tolkien fan but that is not what this is about. In an effort to remove of the most insecure method of security, the password, Google engineers and working on rings that can be used to log into a computer or account. The idea is that by using personal hardware for security, you remove the dangers of people reusing passwords or writing them down. While... read more

Nanotube Chip Breakthrough

IBM scientists report success in patterning an array of carbon nanotubes on a silicon wafer and their application in the construction of hybrid chips with more than 10,000 functioning transistors. The scientists say their breakthrough promises to guarantee the sustained shrinkage of basic digital switches for more than 10 years. Stanford professor Subhasish Mitra says the advance also would likely boost... read more

And we’re back… (again)

Yes, that is correct. We are back online! I find it exceedingly strange that of all my websites that this is the only one that ever seems to be targeted… It must be the damn cable companies! CONSPIRACY! LOL.   Regardless¬†of whomever keeps attacking this site (I’m guessing they don’t like free tv through roku?) I will keep putting it back up! So no need to fear, if we go offline... read more

NASA: Curiosity Experiences Intense Solar Storms

  On January 27th, 2012, the Curiosity spacecraft was hit with an intense solar radiation storm. No need to worry, this was part of its mission. Using its Radiation Assessment Detector, Curiosity was able to count the multitude of particles, protons, cosmic rays, and neutrons that bombarded it. With this data, NASA scientists will be able to determine the type of radiation humans could be exposed... read more
