Coding. Computer code is extremely important. Pretty much every electronic device you use relies on code to work. It’s the backbone behind how websites, apps, and video games are created. If code is this important, it’s a shock that most people don’t know how to code. Granted, not everyone has the same access to computers as books, and more people are learning to code because it’s becoming easier to learn through the internet and schools’ computer science programs.
However, some estimates say that only 0.5% of the world’s population knows some form of programming. Additionally, many people who code don’t…
Doctors are the heroes of this pandemic. They have been working extra hours to care for the health of others at the expense of theirs, and they’ve been working tirelessly despite the intense stress that comes from being in a pandemic. Doctors can use all the help they can get, especially with the current overcrowding of hospitals. To help them, researchers from MIT and Brigham and Women’s Hospital have a solution to help doctors interact with patients using robotics.
Take a look at the picture above. What do you see? Do you recognize anything? Well, you can tell that this is a picture of space, most likely by a telescope. This is one of NASA’s most iconic photos of space, though you probably haven’t seen this picture before. Why do I know this? That’s easy. It’s in black and white.
Do you remember 2010? Back when the iPhone 4 was considered revolutionary with its crisp Retina Display, and Microsoft released the Kinect, transforming the gaming experience. However, 2010 wasn’t full of successes, and the most prominent tech failure is definitely Microsoft Kin. With the rise of social media platforms like Myspace and Facebook, Microsoft saw the chance to target this new demographic of digital natives.
The tech giant invested two years and $1 billion on a project for Windows CE-based phones — Kin ONE and Kin TWO. Microsoft hyped up these phones a lot, thinking that they were the next…
The 21st century has been a time of immense innovation, and we are seeing advancements in science, tech, and engineering every single day. In a matter of decades, we went from using entire rooms for computers carrying out simple addition to everyone having their own personal cinema/encyclopedia/calendar/mailbox/shop/map/sketchpad in their pockets.
However, a technology that definitely stands of from the rest is 3D printing. The concept might be old, but the progress it has made in the past few decades is immeasurable, and it has made huge waves in the tech and science fields. How? …
The hype around the iPhone 12 has finally been answered. At the recent Apple “Hi, Speed” event, the tech giant introduced the iPhone 12, featuring an improved camera system, a crisper display, and a superfast A14 Bionic processor. More importantly, though, is that it’s 5G-ready. The new family of flagships— comprising of the iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro, and 12 Pro Max — certainly seems interesting, but definitely not cheap, with the cheapest phone, the 12 Mini, starting at $699. However, what are the biggest takeaways from the big reveal? Let’s find out, shall we?
We have been asking questions about the mysteries of our universe for a long time. Some of the most asked questions are about extraterrestrial life. Is mankind alone in this universe? The universe is so vast that the fact that there are other life-forms out there seems so possible yet so out-of-this-world (pun intended).
From rovers to long-range satellites, we have tried multiple ways to find extraterrestrials, especially on Mars and the moons Europa and Enceladus. However, recent discoveries show that we might be looking in the wrong places. …
CES 2020 was crazy. Although all the new gadgets and technologies there were very captivating, one technological field dominated — robotics. From emotionally supportive robot puppies to fresh, robot-made pizza, these machines left tech enthusiasts like me curious and starstruck.
However, there was one robot that genuinely caught my eye, not because it’s super-advanced or revolutionary, but because of it’s purpose and AI-integration.
Homelessness is one of the most persistent problems society has faced. Not only does it impact the 1.6 billion people who lack adequate housing in the world, but it also impacts you. For example, people without housing are high consumers of public resources and generate expenses for the community. Not only is it an economic problem, though, but one for public health as well. They often lack access to health care and have chronic illnesses caused by difficult living conditions, such as sleeping outside in bad weather and eating cheap, starchy foods.
Electric cars. When you hear that, you think Tesla, sleek chargers, and an energy-efficient solution to car emissions. Electric cars have already revolutionized the car industry, from lowering fuel and maintenance costs to paving the path for using eco-friendly modes of transport. For example, the amount of battery electric vehicles in use increased from 3.27 to 4.79 million in the world from 2018 to 2019.
But have you heard of electric mail trucks? The thought is interesting, but you might not have heard of the idea before. Don’t worry though, because it’s not your fault.
Mail trucks haven’t changed for…
