Now We Have Robots to clean manholes - Huddle Kerala startup conclave's Star attraction.. indianexpress.com
George claims Bandicoot can clean a manhole in 20 minutes, much less than what man takes, and designed in such a way that it can be operated by the workers themselves, thereby protecting their employment.
Mobile payments will soon become irrelevant if this technology from Sweden becomes the mainstream.

A team of scientists from the US has created the world's first microchip that has 1,000 processors and is thought to be the fastest chip designed in the University of California...
Manu Prakash is an assistant professor of bioengineering at Stanford University. He and his students have developed a computer that operates using water droplets. Although electronics and water generally don’t mix, Manu took a decade to combine his expertise in manipulating droplet fluid dynamics with a fundamental element of computer science – an operating clock.
Manu used a magnetic field in which the tiny water droplets are trapped. Rotating the field ensured that the droplets moved in a desired direction, creating the basis of his computer clock. In an interview with the Stanford News, Manu said, “Our goal is to build a completely new class of computers that can precisely control and manipulate physical matter. Imagine if when you run a set of computations that not only information is processed but physical matter is algorithmically manipulated as well. We have just made this possible at the mesoscale.”
It must be noted that Manu had earlier shocked the scientific community by developing a paper microscope. This time he has co-authored his scientific paper with Georgios “Yorgos” Katsikis, a graduate student at the university. “Following these rules, we’ve demonstrated that we can make all the universal logic gates used in electronics, simply by changing the layout of the bars on the chip. The actual design space in our platform is incredibly rich. Give us any Boolean logic circuit in the world, and we can build it with these little magnetic droplets moving around,” Georgios said.
A 25-year-old man named Stan Larkin has survived for more than a year without a human heart inside his body. Instead, he wore an 'artificial heart' in a backpack 24/7 for 555 days, which pumped blood around his body and kept him alive.
Researchers feel that the device could be used to save more patients with total heart failure, while waiting for a donor.
New York, April 13 : Taking the video recording to a next level, social media giant Facebook unveiled its own 360-degree stereoscopic 3D video camera at the two-day F8 developer conference underway at the Fort Mason in San Francisco, California.
The company calls this new device the Facebook Surround360, and this summer, it will give away both the camera's hardware designs and the complex software -- for free -- that weaves the camera's myriad images into one complete three-dimensional landscape, a report in WIRED said on Tuesday.
