Research provides new insight into quantum effects in lithium sulfur batteries

Posted by in categories: computing, mobile phones, quantum physics, sustainability

Lithium-ion batteries power our lives.

Because they are lightweight, have and are rechargeable, the batteries power many products, from laptops and cell phones to electric cars and toothbrushes.

However, current have reached the limit of how much energy they can store. That has researchers looking for more powerful and cheaper alternatives.

Physicists discover first transformable nanoscale electronic devices

Posted by in categories: mobile phones, nanotechnology, quantum physics

The nanoscale electronic parts in devices like smartphones are solid, static objects that once designed and built cannot transform into anything else. But University of California, Irvine physicists have reported the discovery of nanoscale devices that can transform into many different shapes and sizes even though they exist in solid states.

It’s a finding that could fundamentally change the nature of , as well as the way scientists research atomic-scale quantum materials. The study is published in Science Advances.

“What we discovered is that for a particular set of materials, you can make nanoscale electronic devices that aren’t stuck together,” said Javier Sanchez-Yamagishi, an assistant professor of physics & astronomy whose lab performed the new research. “The parts can move, and so that allows us to modify the size and shape of a device after it’s been made.”

Behind the Brain Chip: An Inside Look at Blackrock Neurotech

Posted by in categories: computing, finance, mobile phones, neuroscience

We flew out to Salt Lake City, Utah, to get an exclusive look at the company behind some of the most advanced implantable neurotechnologies, Blackrock Neurotech. Brain implants are here, and they’re becoming more and more advanced every day. The Utah Array and Neuroport system allows for high-quality data recording and stimulation. It has the most in-subject research hours of any brain-computer interface on the market and has been a part of the most advanced BCIs since 2004, inspiring hope in persons with movement disorders. We also saw their newly announced Neuralace interface debuted in November 2022. Learn what it takes to work at a company at the forefront of brain-computer interface development.

Thanks to Blackrock Neurotech for sponsoring this video. The opinions expressed in this video are that of The BCI Guys and should be taken as such.

SpaceX to launch Sateliot space base stations to provide satellite communications from smartphones

Posted by in categories: mobile phones, satellites

The Spanish company Sateliot plans to send its first base station into orbit, which will enable satellite communications directly from smartphones. SpaceX will help it do so. A SpaceX rocket will naturally be used to launch the telecom satellite into orbit.

Here’s What We Know

The company from Spain wants to launch five satellites into orbit by the end of this year. According to representatives of the startup, this first phase of the project will be completed. Sateliot wants to have 64 satellites in orbit next year, and the company plans to increase the number to 256 in 2025.

Cybercriminals Turn to Android Loaders on Dark Web to Evade Google Play Security

Posted by in categories: cryptocurrencies, cybercrime/malcode, finance, mobile phones

Malicious loader programs capable of trojanizing Android applications are being traded on the criminal underground for up to $20,000 as a way to evade Google Play Store defenses.

“The most popular application categories to hide malware and unwanted software include cryptocurrency trackers, financial apps, QR-code scanners, and even dating apps,” Kaspersky said in a new report based on messages posted on online forums between 2019 and 2023.

Dropper apps are the primary means for threat actors looking to sneak malware via the Google Play Store. Such apps often masquerade as seemingly innocuous apps, with malicious updates introduced upon clearing the review process and the applications have amassed a significant user base.

Photonic filter separates signals from noise to support future 6G wireless communication

Posted by in categories: mobile phones, robotics/AI

Researchers have developed a new chip-sized microwave photonic filter to separate communication signals from noise and suppress unwanted interference across the full radio frequency spectrum. The device is expected to help next-generation wireless communication technologies efficiently convey data in an environment that is becoming crowded with signals from devices such as cell phones, self-driving vehicles, internet-connected appliances and smart city infrastructure.

“This new microwave filter chip has the potential to improve , such as 6G, leading to faster internet connections, better overall communication experiences and lower costs and for wireless communication systems,” said researcher Xingjun Wang from Peking University. “These advancements would directly and indirectly affect daily life, improving overall quality of life and enabling new experiences in various domains, such as mobility, smart homes and public spaces.”

In the Photonics Research journal, the researchers describe how their new photonic filter overcomes the limitations of traditional electronic devices to achieve multiple functionalities on a chip-sized device with low power consumption. They also demonstrate the filter’s ability to operate across a broad radio frequency spectrum extending to over 30 GHz, showing its suitability for envisioned 6G technology.

The Quest for Ultimate Reality: Exploring Experiential Nirvana as a Path to Self-Transcendence

Posted by in categories: augmented reality, cyborgs, mobile phones, neuroscience, robotics/AI, singularity, transhumanism, virtual reality

IN THE NEAR FUTURE, we should anticipate certain technological developments that will forever change our world. For instance, today’s text-based ChatGPT will evolve to give rise to personal “conversational AI” assistants installed in smart glasses and contact lenses that will gradually phase out smartphones. Technological advances in fields such as AI, AR/VR, bionics, and cybernetics, will eventually lead to “generative AI”-powered immersive neurotechnology that enables you to create virtual environments and holographic messages directly from your thoughts, with your imagination serving as the “prompt engineer.” What will happen when everyone constantly broadcasts their mind?

Google have finally developed a form of AirDrop with Nearby Share

Posted by in categories: computing, mobile phones

After almost a decade, Google have finally managed to develop a file sharing function like Apple’s AirDrop. Called Nearby Share, here’s how your use it.

Whatever your opinion about which operating system is the best, iOS has had one major advantage over Android and Windows for some time, its AirDrop feature. In fact, for more than a decade, AirDrop has been a source of pride for Apple users and a cause of resentment for many who desire an easy way to share files between Windows and Android.
