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.
You might agree with me when I say that almost everyone fantasizes of having superhuman powers. What if your fantasies of being a superhuman come true? The students at Royal College of Art in London have developed a mask that can increase your sight and hearing senses to a greater extent.

Exoskeletons are being used all around the world for making heavy lifting easy and for helping people increase mobility of their arms in case they are they have been stiffened after a surgery or accident. They not only fulfill ones desire to have something inspired from sci-fi but also support people with disabilities. The TitanArm prototype that we are discussing here has been made by a team from University of Pennsylvania. The team even won silver for prototyping upper body exoskeleton.
If you don’t have a girlfriend and you feel alone! No more worries. Japanese researchers have invented a coat that hugs you from behind and lets you feel like you are being hugged by a girl. You also hear girl-whispers in your ear through a pair of headphones. Riajyuu Coat is what the developers call it.

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.
Nike Vapor Laser Talons is the world’s first football shoe which has a 3D printed base. The shoes are designed in such a manner that they can boost a player’s performance. 3D printed sole helps a player cross first 10 yards with greater efficiency and speed. Weighing just 5.6 oz it provides optimal traction on the field and lets athletes run along for longer.
A bionic hand lets an amputee carry out his original hand movements. What it does not offer is the feeling of touch.

OhYes, its true, these artificial limbs can actually feel sensory impressions through hand sensors and can also be controlled by mere thoughts.
Even the slightest thought of our computer system getting crashed scares us. Many of us might even have faced the problems that occur after a system crash.
