A biomimetic jumping microrobot

Posted by Shailendra Doke | May 22, 2008 Leave a Comment

jumping microbot Researchers from the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems at EPFL created a microrbot, they are unveiling this grasshopper-inspired jumping robot at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation May 21 in Pasadena, California. This robot weighs a miniscule 7 grams, and can jump 1.4 meters or more than 27 times its body size.

To make use of, this robot can be fitted out with tiny sensors to explore rough, inaccessible terrain or to aid in search and rescue operations. "This biomimetic form of jumping is unique because it allows micro-robots to travel over many types of rough terrain where no other walking or wheeled robot could go," explains EPFL Professor Dario Floreano. "These tiny jumping robots could be fitted with solar cells to recharge between jumps and deployed in swarms for extended exploration of remote areas on Earth or on other planets." [via EurekAlert]

Now, what it got? this phone has a screen which is divided into two, the first screen is a touch screen and other is OLED which displays basic info of the phone. [Yanko Design]

Gmail is now even more Faster.

Posted by Shailendra Doke | May 14, 2008 Leave a Comment

Gmail Logo Great performance has always been attraction of the Gmail and the Gmail team is working everyday to make it faster. Recently the Gmail team decided to take a closer look at some other key parts of Gmail to see if they could speed things up, so you could get even better experience.

The team found that the initial loading sequence of Gmail can be improved. The loading sequence is everything that happens behind the scenes between the time you press the "Sign In" button on the login page and the moment you land in your inbox. They made some improvements to this area by reducing the HTTP request required to load an inbox and display it.

The team claims that they have reduced the overall load time up to 20%. Here's what they say about improvements.

We spent hours poring over these traces to see exactly what was happening between the browser and Gmail during the sign-in sequence, and we found that there were between fourteen and twenty-four HTTP requests required to load an inbox and display it. To put these numbers in perspective, a popular network news site's home page required about a 180 requests to fully load when I checked it yesterday. But when we examined our requests, we realized that we could do better. We decided to attack the problem from several directions at once: reduce the number of overall requests, make more of the requests cacheable by the browser, and reduce the overhead of each request.

I found little improvements loading the Gmail page. Have you felt some changes or improvements?

107 Year Old - The longest Burning Lightbulb in the World

Posted by Shailendra Doke | May 12, 2008 Leave a Comment

longest burning light

A lightbulb in a firehouse in Livermore, CA, has been burning continuously since 1901. Unofficial keeper of the bulb, retired firefighter Tom Bramell reckons its longevity is down to old-fashioned craftsmanship.

"I believe the bulb has stayed alive so many years because the makers gave it a perfect seal, so no air gets inside the bulb to help disintegrate the carbon filament. This bulb operates in a vacuum and it doesn't burn hot. That's the secret." [Gizmodo]
