Keeping Up With Technology News
Latest Technology News. Scientists have discovered a new technique for layering dissimilar materials with atomic precision to manipulate the size of resultant magnetic mini-particles called microspheres. This technique could improve energy efficiency worldwide, prevent disease transmission within hospitals and enable the construction of larger batteries with less material. The development, from researchers at the Department of Information and Communication Technologies (IDSC), will enable the use of different sized photovoltaic chips, which will reduce the total energy consumption for electronic equipment. Other applications, to be initiated by the new technology, will be for high temperature superconducting materials, solid oxide semiconductors and optoelectronic devices.
Medical Technology News. Another major feature this week in technology news was the development of a new type of disposable battery, called the LifeVantage System. This technology is described as an “intelligent” battery that not only consumes less energy, but can be recharged with greater precision. The LifeVantage System is described as an “intelligent” battery that is rechargeable using human effort, or with the aid of a “bridge”. It has the potential to help save healthcare costs by replacing the need for costly and inconvenient hospital stays for patients.
Wireless Technology News. Recent improvements in wireless technology are worth highlighting. Wireless communication technology has reached a whole new level of performance. In one case, a satellite was synchronised to a motorcycle instead of simply transmitting a signal. There are many other examples of completely wireless devices, such as watches, wristwatches, bracelets and blankets.
Energy Efficiency. This was one of my personal highlights from technology news this year. The energy efficiency division of the Society of Women in Science and Engineering (SWEE&SE) held a contest to design and manufacture low-energy LED lights. One of the winning entries was a device which converts a car’s sun light into usable electricity, while simultaneously using no power at all from the car’s on-board battery.
Medical Technology News. Medical technology has taken leaps and bounds in recent years. Many exciting advances have been made, particularly in the area of brain scanning. One advance involves the ability to diagnose patients with brain scans at their home.
Technology is constantly changing. In addition to the exciting fields noted above, there are many other new areas of technological change that are constantly appearing in technology news. Some of these fields are fascinating, while others may be more practical – like battery technology. As battery technology improves, it will become more affordable to replace old batteries with new ones. It will also become easier to use and eventually more powerful.
