Lockheed Martin SR-72: The fastest commercial airplane in the world

Technology
Space tourism is the next big thing, but the companies are not neglecting the transatlantic flights, given the fact that the famous Concorde is still available. The Lockheed Martin, an "American global aerospace, defense, security, and advanced technology company" (Wikipedia) is working on a jet engine that is three times faster than the engines found on Concorde. The Lockheed Martin's engine could reach Mach 6 (ie 7.349 km/h) (more…)

A short study on Ender’s Shadow vs Ender’s Game

A short study on Ender’s Shadow vs Ender’s Game

Technology
Last week I had the pleasure of watching Ender's Game movie for the first time. I'm writing for the first time because I plan to buy it on Blu-Ray in order to watch it again. I've read the original book 5 years ago and I absolutely loved it. At that time, the general perception about it was that the movie adaptation would be pretty difficult to film because of all its complexity. Of course, we could have witnessed a fast-wrapped summer release, but it would have not complimented the book. The fans needed the real deal and they were ready to wait for it. Time passed and the technology finally got where it needed to be in order to make it happen. I loved the movie (although it's a stripped…

How to remove myself from the Internet

Technology
Have you ever tried to remove all those old and unused accounts of you from the Internet? Well, sometimes this might seem an easy job, but in fact it's not. If you want to erase any trace of you from the Internet, you either have to login on every single service and search in the upper/lower menu from "disable/delete account" link, or you can use a new service create in England that works with the most important social and non-social websites around: JustDelete.me (more…)

Graphene ink could lead to flexible gadgets

Graphene ink could lead to flexible gadgets

Technology
Ever since 2010, when two scientists from Russia received the Nobel Prize for Physics, everyone is talking about graphene, the amazing material of this millennium. It all started back in 2004, when a group of researchers led by Andre Geim have exfoliated graphite and have discovered an excellent conductor of electricity: graphene. To learn about graphene, we must start from carbon. This element may exist in nature in various forms, with different physical properties such as diamond, graphite (amorphous carbon), carbon nanotubes and fullerenes (it was discovered in 1985 and it led to a Nobel Prize in 1996). Graphene is the basic element of the last three from the previous list, therefore we can assume that it is found in large quantities in nature (because graphite resources are pretty large…

The $7,000 Sci-Fi Movie That Blew My Mind

The $7,000 Sci-Fi Movie That Blew My Mind

Technology
Ever since I was in high-school, I had a passion for music and Sci-Fi movies. On some levels, I managed to fulfill that need to create my own music and be praised for it, but I also had a personal dream of making my own Sci-Fi movie about time travel. I admit, it is a topic that fascinates me still, and I love to re-watch those cool time travel movies: Terminator, Back to the Future, Donnie Darko, Groundhog Day, Twelve Monkeys. Of course, I know that in order to make a watchable Sci-Fi movie from scratch, you need to undergo a test of endurance and patience, because you have to write the screenplay, you need to find/hire a cast, you need to shot those Sci-Fi scenes in a way that's…

There are no jobs in a world of robots

Technology
Back in the days, robots were always present in futuristic movies or Sci-Fi literature. Now, we entered a new era of technology, where everything is possible. Yesterday's stories are today's daily facts. We are able to buy various configurations of home robots that will help around the house, solving domestic problems. We see robots in the army, in the industrial and medical field, even in cyberspace. The AI is evolving every year, and according to Ray Kurtzweil, an expert in Artificial Intelligence, it is very possible for Technological Singularity to be sparked in today's top-notch computer systems.

iPhone-controlled bionic hand

Technology
Robotic prostheses for human limbs have evolved a lot over the last 10 years, and their prices have been greatly reduced from tens of thousands of dollars to only 10,000 dollars for a "BeBionic 3" bionic hand, created by BeBionic. Touch Bionics is another manufacturer in this niche, and they recently released a new and unique model of bionic prosthesis called i-limb ultra revolution robotic artificial hand that can be controlled with the help of an application installed on iPhone.
