Quick enough to spew out 800 megabits From 2011 per second (Mbps) — an impressive spec by home- networking standards. Only a few components are CloudTags: Wonderful , Emerging , Technologies , needed to upgrade a typical LED to become a networ- 2011 , laptop batteries uk , Samsung nc10 batteries king illuminator (a term sure to be trademarked , Dell latitude d630 laptop battery any second), which can reach an area of 10 square meters. One drawback: anyone walking between 1. Networking via LED the light and your device will kill the connection. In another category breakthrough this year, Gii- Nii also introduced a light bulb that doubles as a speaker. 2. Terminator Contact Lenshttp://blog.batteryfast.co.uk/top-8-wonderful-emerging-technologies-from-2011/ Wi-Fi jammed? It won’t be a problem if you’re What if there were a way to get visual alerts without networking through your room lights. You heard even having to look at a device? That’s the promise right — scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for of a high-tech contact lens that’s also a heads-up Telecommunications in Germany worked out a way display. Researchers at the University of Washington to transmit data via normal LED light bulbs. Best of developed a lens that includes all the electronics for all, you can still use them for lighting, since the lights displaying visual information to the wearer and still blink on and off too fast for the naked eye to see. remain completely safe to eye tissue. There’s literally just one limitation: it can only display a single pixel. The proof-of-concept could lead to more advanced Love this PDF? Add it to your Reading List! 4 joliprint.com/mag Page 1

The PlayStation Holodeck able to order your own pair of augmented-reality contacts, ready to display information from Google or Wikipedia on whatever you look at, or immerse you live-action gameplay. 3. Building Better Batteries Star Trek‘s holodeck looks like a complete fantasy, but Sony created a convincing video that would make you think twice. Allegedly using no editing or post-production whatsoever, Sony Europe got a couple of London-based production companies Several groups of researchers were working to to shoot a series of amazing videos that appear to help create a future where we don’t have to plug create a holodeck-like experience. Is this the future our gadgets in every night, and when we do, they of augmented reality?http://blog.batteryfast.co.uk/top-8-wonderful-emerging-technologies-from-2011/ won’t take long to charge. The Berkeley National Laboratory invented a new polymer so they could create a battery that holds 30% more charge than the lithium-ion batteries of today. Other lab coats at the University of Illinois developed a technique that might allow high-capacity batteries to charge and discharge within seconds. A grad student at Stan- ford is working on building batteries that could be recharged for decades without losing capacity. Other research at Stanford opens the door to transparent batteries that could be used in see-through gadgets. Put it all together and you have the high-capacity, instant-charging, long-life, transparent superbattery of the future. Maybe. Love this PDF? Add it to your Reading List! 4 joliprint.com/mag Page 2

Full Duplexing: A Path to 5G More spectrum, more spectrum, more spectrum — that’s the incessant cry of the wireless industry, and its solution to many problems it faces. The plea for more airwaves is valid, though the carriers could do a lot more with what they have now if they can make something of what Rice University resear- chers have built. The team managed to achieve One problem with today’s touchscreen-heavy tech is full duplexing — effectively doubling the amount that it’s fairly fragile (just ask anyone with a cracked of data transmitted over a network — and they did iPhone). That would change if the screen wasn’t just it using current equipment. Although new wirelesshttp://blog.batteryfast.co.uk/top-8-wonderful-emerging-technologies-from-2011/ a rigid piece of glass, but a bendable display. Nokia standards need to be developed to use the tech, it and Samsung have hinted at bendable phones, and could be deployed quickly, with existing cell towers. one inventor at in Canada has shown it can be done. 7.

That’s the promise of a new kind of screen coating that repels oil-based substances. The German scientists behind the discovery were trying to make a new kind of eyeglass, but it could also lead to iPads that stay spotless — assuming they can make the antismudge coating scratch-proof, too. 8. Social Cloud Computinghttp://blog.batteryfast.co.uk/top-8-wonderful-emerging-technologies-from-2011/ Cloud computing — using several computers over an open network to combine their power to attack difficult computing tasks, like the SETI@Home pro- ject — has a lot of potential, but one big problem is if someone on the network is malicious, it can screw up the whole operation. It’s difficult to know who’s a bad guy, though, so information that’s even a little bit sensitive will never work on the model. Or will it? Social networks like Facebook can provide a large group of like-minded parties, all of whom have a certain level of trust. After all, you’re already sharing the intimate moments of your life with these people — why not some processing power, too? That’s the essence of social cloud computing, an idea from researchers at the University of Mon- tana. And you thought you were just hanging out. Love this PDF?
