Any sufficiently advanced technology is equivalent to magic. –Sir Arthur C. Clarke
During my childhood, I have observed my father taking some extra time to catch up with the radio every time we had plans to go out to a faraway destination. Earlier it appeared to me as one of his daily habits similar to that of checking out the daily news broadcasts. But, apparently, as I grew up I realized he used to wait for the traffic updates of the major roads of our town. As a pre-teen, for me, it was a very smart way of saving time beforehand.
With the upcoming of digitalization, payments are no more a great deal of cash. Electronic payments or online payment is fast growing these days as it is an easy and convenient way of carrying on transactions. Today there is no need to visit banks or ATMs anymore if you want to go shopping a card or even your mobile phone is also enough for you to keep going. But, have you ever thought how the entire dynamics behind these electronic payments works? Let us take a tour through the entire process.
One of the basic accessories we possess these days are headphones. With the fast advancements in technologies, headphones are also available in various types as well as in various features. The cost of these headphones also varies based on the technology installed in it. One such technology is noise cancellation. Let’s figure it out.
Every soil testing lab has its own methodology for testing soil and making nutrient recommendations. There are two steps to Western Ag Labs’ process. First, soil samples are analyzed using patented soil probes developed at the University of Saskatchewan. Then the samples are analyzed using a computer model. The computer model produces crop and nutrient recommendations tailored to the clients’ land, production goals and risk tolerance level.
Touch Screens have replaced buttons from our day to day life, say from smartphones to even sophisticated industrial pieces of machinery.This technology has brought out an entire revolution in its own. The appreciating fact is that it was accepted, modified and developed to current form in just a couple of decades which is very rare in the field of technological development.
All you are definitely a fan of some Superhero movies or have fascinated a Science Fiction movie. What makes the movie appear more realistic and mind-blowing? Everyone is aware of the fact that it is its Visual-Effects (abbreviate as VFX). So, here a question for you, do you know how exactly does VFX works? The technology behind it involves the use of a Green Screen and Chroma Keying.
Scientists in the United States and Saudi Arabia have harnessed the abilities of both a solar cell and a battery in one device—a “solar flow battery” that soaks up sunlight and efficiently stores it as chemical energy for later on-demand use. Their research, published September 27 in the journal Chem, could make electricity more accessible in remote regions of the world.
Virtual Reality (VR) is the use of computer technology to create a simulated environment. Unlike traditional user interfaces, VR places the user inside an experience. Instead of viewing a screen in front of them, users are immersed and able to interact with 3D worlds.
3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process, an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the object is created.
With the birth of the concept of Artificial Intelligence (AI), many new dimensions of innovations are coming up. AI controlled Eye Disease Detector is one of the best among them. The Moorfield Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, DeepMind Health and UCL has developed an AI system.
Probably one of the greatest and most important inventions of the modern era is the ‘INTERNET’. Initially, it appeared as a very sophisticated technology. But, when we realized it true potential it has emerged as an integral part of our day-to-day life.
