Have you ever wished to transform normal things around you in a way that would allow them to respond to your touch like touchscreen tablets do? Yes, isn’t that amazing? Two PhD students, John Hardy and Carl Ellis of Lancaster University have made this possible by creating a technology that can transform any object into a tablet computer. This new technology is christened ‘Ubi Displays’ and it requires a computer and a projector along with a camera to complete the touch display.

With the advancement in technology, the size of gadgets is reducing considerably. The nano-breakthroughs have revolutionized the entire world and this time it is an entire operational computer which has been miniaturized. This tiny computer is less than one cubic millimeter in size and is a brain child of a team from the University of Michigan. The most fascinating part is that it is the world’s smallest computer. It has been named as Michigan Micro Mote or M3 and can efficiently perform functions like data storage, wireless communication etc.

A new evolving technology has been put forward by an architect and computer scientist Skylar Tibbits. Using this concept, printing of such objects would be possible that can reunite themselves with time. Skylar Tibbits, who is also an MIT professor, has termed it as ‘4D printing’ using time as the fourth dimension. This is because printed objects reassemble themselves and take the original shape over a definite period of time.

Tentacle Prosthetic can grip things like real hands do

Tentacle-Prosthesis

Life without limbs is really tough. All thanks to researchers and doctors who have come a long way in designing prosthetics. So many times we have seen limbs that look real but today we will be discussing a unique design which is brain child of Kaylene Kau. The tentacle prosthetic design is quite unconventional and weird. The tentacle design is bizarre but beautifully dexterous.

CONDOR is a carbon fiber sports wheelchair inspired from skateboards

condor wheelchair

The sports wheelchair that we are going to talk about in the article is termed as Condor Marathon’s Wheelchair and is it’s a concept designed by Juan Gill with the help of experts in this field. The final product had been manufactured after doing quite a bit research in the field. The research conducted in Argentina demonstrated that maximum people avoided sport wheelchairs or used secondhand wheelchairs because of their expensive prices. Therefore an effort has been done to craft a comfortable and new chair for users who cannot afford high priced wheelchairs.

Decelerator helmet presents the world in slow motion after filtering the environment

Helmet 1

The “decelerator helmet” as the name suggests allows the user to understand the world in a total slow motion. The unique design has been crafted by a German artist  Lorenz Potthast. Technical senses are entrusted in the helmet that offers experimental approach to one of the most significant topic of the globalized world. The apparatus works by breaking the stream of time under operator’s control.
