iStation a Retro iPad docking system comprises of a wooden contraption (made of plywood with a faux woodgrain or pearl white finish) that primarily comes with powered stereo speakers (having deft sound quality) and a small sub-woofer for enhanced bass effects. A detachable Bluetooth keyboard can also be affixed on the lower pedestal of the timber box. Other features include a stand (for iPads and iPhones) with three different angles on the top section of the contraption, along with the ubiquitous paraphernalia of a USB port, microSD slot and 3.5mm stereo audio input jack.

With so many of great features then the conception certainly calls some user oriented attributes. In this respect, the keyboard and the speaker system can connect to the tablet effortlessly through Bluetooth connectivity. According to most of the sources, the speakers do account for a superb quality sound output, with a slew of manual music controls (of course, along with a remote mechanism). As for the addition of the USB ports, they can be practically used for charging the mounted device, while MP3 music can also be directly played through the flash drive.

Coming to the important add-on, i.e., the removable keyboard - this light weight peripheral is widely available in the market. It comes with all the standard features of buttons and special Apple keys. The layout also covers the top row keys (that double up as brightness, volume and slideshow controlling buttons), along with a conspicuous power switch.

Fold & Go Mobile Tablet a Real Foldable Tablet PC

Fold & Go Mobile Tablet a Real Foldable Tablet PC

A foldable Tablet PC concept was a big technology expectation for the future, one company from Fold & Go Mobile Tablet which envisaged by AN Design Lab has designed a flexible tablet device that can literally be folded and used. It seems that the flexible display screen will became the next trends in technology.



The design will comprise of a futuristic flexible screen technology such as we write on the Nokia kinetic concept, as an integral part of the system (from the perspective of both flexibility and usage). And since we are talking about flexible screens, the current technological attribute seen in this field is intriguingly credible to take it much beyond the ludicrous quotient. In relation to one of its form, we are better acquainted with the technology in its electronic paper (or e-paper) avatar. These e-papers have a slew of advantages over conventional display systems, with a stable image, a wider viewing angle and a convenient reflecting quality of ambient light (rather than emitting its own light). Now, coming back to the concept of Fold & Go Mobile Tablet, the display element of the tablet can utilize the component of plastic substrates that would give it the e-paper vibe.

According to the designers, they have also alluded to the utilization of emerging flexible display technologies. In relation to this, there are already many electronic giants going behind this Holy Grail of next generation display. In the middle part of this year itself, Sony announced (with a prototype, not connected to any device) their OLED driven flexible display, which would offer brighter colors and use less power than standard displays. Another exalted company, Samsung followed it up with their version of ’bendy screened' gadgets, which according to numerous sources, may already make their commercial debut by 2012.

Again, coming back to the core mechanism of Fold & Go Mobile Tablet, the designers have touted the device to have two button programmable hot keys, which in turn would allow for dual functionalities. The first function is directly related to user convenience, as it will allow them to fully customize the device (as per their individual preference). The second function deals with the enhanced state of interaction, which would lead to a full color external screen.

Of course, the interactive feature does not stop at the visual element. As a matter of fact, the designers have thought of an advanced mechanism where a user can 'naturally' interact with the device with practical voice recognition and gesture mapping attributes. Both of these features have been covered in the past by devices (and systems) such as Siri personal assistant in iPhone and Kinect in Xbox 360. So at the end of the day, with so many innovative elements being considered, the Fold & Go Mobile Tablet concept truly has the potential to fuse the best of 'all' worlds.

Just take a look of this Toyota Fun Vii Concept pictures on the right. isn't it really cool?



From the exterior, the aerodynamic vehicle is covered in a smooth black finish with silver accents along the edges and the wheel mags. Everything about the design says “futuristic and high-tech”, and it looks like those cars we often see in dystopian future science-fiction films.

Inside, there is is room for a driver and two passengers to sit comfortably with legs stretched out and more elbow room that the average car comes with. The design is both spacious and minimal, offering a clean, clutter-free look that every car owner envies, but soon discovers is impossible to keep up. but we think it would be better if toyota adopts this Mind Controlled Car Technology like what we posted before.

World's First Elastic Power Cables Roboden


Here comes another new technology, I haven't imagine if on the future almost all the power cables can be stretched. A Japanese company has developed some stretchable power cables. With this innovation now you can stretch the power cables as far as you want without worrying about the cable will broken off , There will be no more short cable problems for your gadget.

Asahi Kasei Fibers has introduced the Roboden, an elastic electrical cable. It’s made out of spandex, which is the same fabric used in a lot of athletic gear, and which a lot of people whose bodies most people really don’t want to see completely outlined wear.

The cable is meant to be used mainly for robotics. Since robots need to have some freedom of movement, engineers usually leave some slack in the cables. But this cable allows the cable to be as tight or as loose as necessary. It will also allow people to build human-like robots that are more realistic and soft, which might help them avoid going deep into the Uncanny Valley.

Asahi Kasei is also planning to implement the technology in other cables, such as USB. This would be an obvious boon for portable electronics, given the abuse they (and their cables) often take. Let's hope that in the future the USB cable or even HDMI cables will use this kind of elastic fabrics from Asahi Kasei Fibers.

Check out the Demo video below of the World's first elastic power cables called roboden from Asahi Kasei Fibers

Branching Boroughs a 3D Vertical Garden Concept

Branching Boroughs a 3D Vertical Garden Concept

Have you ever seen a happening city life flowing up in the air? Seems to be a dreamy concept, doesn't it? But Atmos Studio has turned this dream into a real design that synthesizes and blends a beautiful piece of art with architecture. Atmos has tried to create an articulated three-dimensional sky garden, Branching Boroughs, which is a perfect example of the merger of a micro design with a global concept. The project design aims at utilizing the leftover real estate in an urban setting of London and thus offers an exclusive three dimensional creation. By utilizing the underexploited and neglected waste air, a micro sky garden for birds and people has been designed to be constructed above the traffic island.



Branching Boroughs visualizes to reflect London's city structure in a vertical garden displaying a constant regeneration of the life and birth's ecology. The design includes a tree structure with each of its branch depicting the Inner London's single electoral ward that is mapped per a relative size on the tree. This tree seems to branch outward like the electoral wards branch out of the old city in a three-petal layer manner of adjacent wards. The whole sky garden structure spreads in a pattern that helps it grow out of the limited available space. This space has been carved out of the area having existing underground service routes, pedestrian paths, and planning envelopes over the head. (see also the Concept of Vertical Forest here)

People standing under the shade of the Branching Boroughs tree would find that there is a flow of traffic around them while they still experience a human communion and interaction point where they get away from the city and find relaxation. Encouraging wider issues such as those of biodiversity, this vertical garden may also simply act as a rest point for travelers. It may be termed as a diverse habitat on one hand and a beautifying shady creation on the other. This tree can be planted anywhere the space allows on the running traffic roads or on the stop lights. Branching Boroughs offers people to reach new vantage points and adds on to the beauty of a place by glowing brightly at night.

Visitors may experience to rise above the fog while going up the web of stairs that forms a network of connections to various branches of the tree.

Make a Self Health Diagnose by Spitting on your iPhone Capacitive Screen

Make a Self Health Diagnose by Spitting on your iPhone Capacitive Screen

How to made a self health diagnose via your iPhone capacitive screen? do you know if your iPhone display screen could analyze a various kind of bacteria? Even it's often been discussed that the cell phones can also be used to diagnose your health but this one is the coolest one. You can do the self health diagnose via your iPhone Capacitive screen with your Sneeze. Even it's rather weird but with this way you can analyze the bacteria.



Researchers from the Korea Advanced Institute for Science and Technology ( KAIST ) Hyun Gyu Park and Byoung Yeon Won has managed to detect chlamydia microbes in three different concentrations and they discover that kind of capacitive screen of the iPhone can be used to analyze the type of bacteria. he said that the capacitive screen of iPhone could identify the type of bacteria that derived from liquids such as when we sneeze.

To be able to analyze, of course than you have to sneeze right on the phone screen, there is a special application to assist the analysis. But There are also teething troubles with the touchscreen, as capacitive read-outs can be affected by moisture and sweat that are on the screen alongside your 'sample.' One solution to this would be to create a disposable film that attaches to the iPhone surface. There's a second reason for this, as Park diplomatically puts it: "Nobody wants direct application of bio-samples onto their phone."

Cool Siri Car Hack by Brandon Fiquett

Cool Siri Car Hack by Brandon Fiquett

SIRI on iPhone4S works as a personal assistant but could you imagine if SIRI can be used to start your car? Brandon Fiquett has made a totally awesome innovation by hacking SIRI to start his car. Yes it's true he can start his own car only with SIRI in his iPhone 4S. You can see on the video below about how he start his car by using SIRI.

Developer Brandon Fiquett has gotten his phone to do just that - hacking Siri on the iPhone 4S to work along with his Viper SmartStart module to not only start his car, but also to arm and disarm the car's alarm, lock and unlock doors, and even pop the vehicle's trunk.



Fiquett was able perform the hack by using Siri Proxy created by another hacker @plamoni, and then running a custom PHP script on his home computer along with some custom plugins to communicate with Siri.

Originally the system was only able to respond to commands such as "Vehicle Arm", "Vehicle Disarm", "Vehicle Start", "Vehicle Stop", "Vehicle Pop Trunk", and "Vehicle Panic," with an update later adding more conversational commands such as "Start my car", "Lock my car", and "Pop my trunk."

The hack is currently in the "proof of concept stage," and isn't something you're likely to be able to replicate unless you really know your way around some code. If you are super tech-savvy, however, Fiquett has published links to the code on his website you can use to recreate the hack with your own phone and vehicle.

This particular hack is the work of just one man, and with Siri only being available a little over a month, it will be interesting to see what other functionality the developer community is able to create over time, as well as what other functionality Apple may add to Siri in the future.



Wow it's such a great hack of SIRI on iPhone 4S.

Gliese 581g a Planet that Just Like Earth

Gliese 581g a Planet that Just Like Earth

Gliese 581g is an exoplanet located far away from earth, the scientist has discovered this planet was looks just like our Earth. According to the scientist this planet was potentially habitable planet which has an environment much similar to that of Earth and may contain water and even life.

Gliese 581g is located around 123 trillion miles away from Earth and orbits a star at a distance that places it squarely in the habitable or the Goldilocks zone, the scientists said. Here's the news of this Newly discovered planet like earth the Gliese 581G.



The research, published in a paper published in the Astrophysical Journal, suggests that the planet could contain liquid water on its surface, meaning it tops the league of planets and moons rated as being most like Earth, they said.

"Our findings offer a very compelling case for a potentially habitable planet said Vogt," said lead researcher Steven Vogt, a professor of astronomy and astrophysics at the University of California.

"The fact that we were able to detect this planet so quickly and so nearby tells us that planets like this must be really common," Vogt said. The new findings are based on 11 years of observations of the nearby red dwarf star Gliese 581. The team reported the discovery of two new planets around Gliese 581.

This brings the total number of known planets around this star to six, the most yet discovered in a planetary system outside of our own. Like our solar system, the planets around Gliese 581 have nearlycircular orbits, the team said.

It found that Gliese 581g has a mass three to four time the Earth's and orbits its star in just under 37 days. Its mass indicates that it is probably a rocky planet with a definite surface and enough gravity to hold on to an atmosphere, they said. PTI.

Invoked Computing A Futuristic Technology

Invoked Computing A Futuristic Technology

Invoked Computing? Have you heard this terms before? Ok before we talk about it how about if we describe the meaning of the Invoked Computing? At a glance invoked computing was a computer system that can transform any object into a gadget. It's really cool and amazing right? Nowadays the researcher from University of Tokyo still developing this Invoked Computing System.



If they success in making this devices so in the future you can transform a banana into any kind of gadget. It's too soon to dream about that right? Systems that have this camera will follow you wherever you go and try to recognize objects and hand gestures and then will turn it into a gadget ranging from notebooks, mobile phones and other means but this is not physically. Still confuse? Ok how about if we gave some examples

Let's say when there is a pizza cardboard as an example in the video, you consider it as a notebook to open the box then the existing system will change the pizza cardboard into a notebook where you can actually use it like a regular notebook.

Another Example is if your phone rings, you don't have to grab the phone, simply grab a banana or any object that is near to you and act like a phone with a closer ear a banana into the automated system will turn into a phone.

It's strange but cool and It's not a big surprise if this cool amazing concept won the innovation award at Laval Virtual 2011 in France. Check the demo videos of How the Invoked Computing System turn banana into a gadget.

Ultralight Metallic Micro Lattice the World's Lightest Material for the Future

Ultralight Metallic Micro Lattice the World's Lightest Material for the Future

What's the lightest material on earth? the scientist has developed amazing innovation in science with this Ultralight Material called Metallic Micro Lattice, This material is a solid, metal that can sit atop a dandelion flower without crushing its seeds or spherical structure!! This material consists of 99.99 percent air. The structure is of interconnected hollow tubes with a wall thickness of 100 nanometers; in comparison, a human hair is 1,000 times thinner.. So could you imagine how light is that material? It seems that on the future almost all things could be made with this light material.



As per the reports, this new metal is known to be a 100 times lighter than Styrofoam. Scientists claim that the secret for lightness of the metal is its unique cellular architecture which has been fabricated using hollow tubes which tend to support the structure of the metal. The thickness of the hollow tubes is about 100 nanometers. The scientists have done excellent work by building a concept which is so strong yet light. This material is 99.99 percent air, and it thus has a very low density which is just one thousandth of water. Besides being extremely light this material is also quite resilient. Researchers conducted an experiment to prove this resilience wherein the metal was squashed to about half its height it tends to rebound almost 98 percent way back. The terminal velocity of this light weight metal depends on its density.

Tobias Shandler an author from HRL Laboratories reveals the trick behind this light metal. He says the concept is to delicately fabricate the structural lattice using interconnected hollow tubes. These tubes have a wall thickness which is just one thousandth that of human hair. Bill Carter, Manager at HRL Laboratories stated that the material comprises of about ninety percent of nickle. Bill is the manager of the HRL’s architected material group. He also stated that others metals too can be used for building the light weight structure.

This material boasts excellent energy absorption along with spectacular strength, it might change the fate of aerospace technologies in the near future. As of now this metal is not available in the market as the production has not been initiated. In the near future post production it might be used in varied fields. This material draws parallels with mighty structures like Eiffel Tower, its unique lattice designs makes it weight efficient and incredibly light. The material is also highly flexible thanks to the small wall thickness to diameter ratio. Because of its impressive properties it might find usage in catalyst support, battery electrodes, acoustics, shock energy and vibration dampening.

A senior researcher at University of California Irvine stated many uses of this ultra light metal, one of which is that it can be used for impact protection. This metal is also known to have great usage in the industry of aerospace, battery application and even acoustic dampening. It might open up many opportunities in the area of science and technology. If the metal is dropped from shoulder height it will take nearly 10 seconds to land on the ground. It behaves pretty much like a light weight feather and floats down to the ground.

Ultralight metallic micro-lattice has a unique architecture which enables it to recover completely from the strain of about 50 percent compression. This metal also features special ability to absorb high energy. The material has unimagined strength all because of the fact that materials tend to become strong when their dimensions are reduced to nano-scale units. This unique cellular material redefines the limits of light weight materials. This material has been recognized even by the Guinness World Records.

Scientist are expecting that ultralight metallic micro-lattice can be further modified for normal usage. Its amazing properties like high energy absorption and great strength make it perfect for usage. With a little more advancement and large scale production, ultralight metallic micro-lattice might be the future metal the world can rely on. It can be used to substitute usage of other metals which are not available in abundance or are depleting. A lot is still to be explored, the researchers are putting in hard work to develop this project further and make it helpful in day to day inventions.

There is no doubt that ultralight metallic micro-lattice is by far the lightest metal invented, the scientists behind this invention have done a credible job. Thee future definitely awaits ultralight metallic micro-lattice materials. (via)
