In the past few years, we saw the robots that can mow the grass, dance, climb, stack and even learning. Therefore, it was only a matter of time before they made a robot that can do it better and faster than us.
Mahoro, who was built by AIST in Yaskawa companies. Mahoro is a robot prepared to take hazardous laboratory work, which until now had people to perform manually. Robot Mahoro is currently considered the most sophisticated machine work on the planet. Laboratory work can be performed much faster and with much greater accuracy than humans. Robotic arm also imitates all the movements of human hands. The main advantage of using a robot, of course, that this can also work with toxic and radioactive substances without additional protections.
While the normal working robot programming takes an eternity, the robot Mahoro is much more “receptive” for programming. Mahoro at scans the entire laboratory in a three-dimension. These data are then used to create a virtual workplace. Dedicated software ensure that the robot learns all the techniques and procedures for laboratory work. Robot Mahoro is due to outstanding performance has won in some pharmaceutical companies and university laboratories. NET business and Yaskawa have since been announced that their robot will be further improved and that it will soon be used in other industries. So will soon come a time when we will need to leave jobs to less expensive and more capable robots?
Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are solid-state devices composed of thin films of organic molecules that create light with the application of electricity. OLEDs can provide brighter, crisper displays on electronic devices and use less power than conventional light-emitting diodes (LEDs) or liquid crystal displays (LCDs) used today. OLEDs are used in television screens, computer monitors, mobile phones and PDAs, watches.
An OLED display works without a backlight. Thus, it can display deep black levels and can be thinner and lighter than a liquid crystal display (LCD). In low ambient light conditions such as a dark room an OLED screen can achieve a higher contrast ratio than an LCD, whether the LCD uses cold cathode fluorescent lamps or the more recently developed LED backlight. Due to its low thermal conductivity, an OLED typically emits less light per area than an inorganic LED.
- OLEDs can be printed onto any suitable substrate by an inkjet printer or even by screen printing, theoretically making them cheaper to produce than LCD or plasma displays.
- OLED displays can be fabricated on flexible plastic substrates leading to the possibility of flexible organic light-emitting diodes being fabricated or other new applications such as roll-up displays embedded in fabrics or clothing. (Light weight & flexible plastic substrates)
- OLEDs can enable a greater artificial contrast ratio (both dynamic range and static, measured in purely dark conditions) and viewing angle compared to LCDs because OLED pixels directly emit light. (Wider viewing angles & improved brightness)
- LCDs filter the light emitted from a backlight, allowing a small fraction of light through so they cannot show true black, while an inactive OLED element does not produce light or consume power. (Better power efficiency)
- OLEDs can also have a faster response time than standard LCD screens.

Wi-Fi Direct is a certification mark for devices supporting a game-changing new technology enabling Wi-Fi devices to connect directly, making it simple and convenient to do things like share, sync, print and display. Wi-Fi Direct is a standard that allows Wi-Fi devices to talk to each other without the need for wireless access points(hotspot). Mobile phones, cameras, printers, PCs, will be able to connect directly to each other to transfer content and share applications. Wi-Fi isn’t just about accessing the internet, but about connecting all the Wi-Fi devices you and your friends have! The future looks sparkly.
Demonstration at CES 2011 of two LG Optimus Black phones and laptop connected with WiFi Direct!
Thunderbolt (developed by Intel) technology is a new, high-speed, dual-protocol technology designed for performance, simplicity, and flexibility. This high-speed data transfer technology features the following:
– Dual-channel 10 Gbps per port
– Dual-protocol (PCI Express* and DisplayPort*)
– Compatible with existing DisplayPort devices
– Daisy-chained devices
– Electrical or optical cables
– Low latency with highly accurate time synchronization
– Uses native protocol software drivers
– Power over cable for bus-powered devices
With the 10 Gbps performance of Thunderbolt products you can transfer a full-length HD movie in less than 30 seconds, backup 1 year of continuous MP3 playback in just over 10 minutes
All Thunderbolt devices share a common connector, allowing users to daisy chain devices one after another with interoperable cables.
