Luminiser Is A Revolutionary LED Light That Is Powered By One Tea Candle

Almost everyone will have at least a flashlight or lantern for times when power outage hits. You know what I see with these battery-powered light source? Because we hardly use them, it leads to battery leakages which damaged the device, or in the case of rechargeable batteries, power crept out over time. Neither is good when you needed light. This is why we thought Luminiser could be the perfect portable light source for times like this (and possibly more).

But we are not here to talk about guns; we are here to explore another modern day invention that, in real life, always run out: battery.

3 Dynamic Trends Shaping the Frontiers of Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence crossed a new frontier this month as NASA discovered two new planets using Google AI software. The two planets, located in a system with eight known planets, were discovered by analyzing Kepler space telescope technology using the same type of AI image detection techniques used in today’s face recognition software. By training a neural network with 15,000 signals representing known planets, NASA was able to teach Google’s AI software to spot new planets. Google plans to release the software to the public later this year. Continue reading 3 Dynamic Trends Shaping the Frontiers of Artificial Intelligence

LG Unveiled Revolutionary Paper-like OLED TV That Rolls Into A Box At CES

If you are old enough, you may be able to recall that in the early days of CRT TVs, some of them came with integrated cabinet that has functional doors (either swing or sliding type). I am not entirely sure what was the rationale behind this TV-in-cabinet (specifically, those with doors), but my best guesses would be, one, to keep children off the TV (because some models actually had lock on them) and two, perhaps to blend with the rest of the home furnishing. Whatever the reasons were, the days of hiding TV behind cabinet was long over, or is it? As it turns out, LG may have inadvertently recreated a similar concept, but with modern OLED display, of course.

In Future, Even Sporting Coaches’ Job May Not Be Safe From Robots’ Take Over

Sci-fi movies and novels have almost describe a future where robots replacing humans in a variety of jobs, if not taking over the world entirely.

Nissin’s High-tech Fork Cancels Out Slurping Noises When Eating Noodles

Have you eaten ramen in Japan in, say, a restaurant? How do you like it? Lovely? Or are you bothered by fellow ramen chompers who are constantly producing the annoying slurping sound? I am not going to lie. I am, always. But we can’t blame them, it is a cultural thing. By slurping the noodles, it is supposed to make the noodles tastier and also as a way of expressing that it is really that damn good. Gosh. I never figure out how those reasons are any rational.
