New Virtual Reality Tool Lets You Explore the Bitcoin Blockchain in 3D – Bitcoin News

As an intangible asset, bitcoin can be hard to picture. Yes, you know what it is, you’re familiar with how the blockchain works, and you’ve probably tried (and failed) explaining it to an elderly relative. Every conceivable facet of bitcoin’s underlying technology can be monitored, analyzed, and charted – that’s the beauty of a public …

Bayesian probability-based computer program rolls the dice on perovskite interfaces

Perovskites are a type of mineral and class of materials, and have been attracting a great deal of attention for their potential applications to technologies such as those used in solar cells. These unique materials have well-ordered structures and show many interesting properties that could be useful in other areas of electronics. Such a variety of properties in the same structural backbone allows different kinds of perovskites, with different properties, to be evenly joined together without breaking lattice coherency. Being able to examine the structures at these interfaces is important for researchers studying perovskites, but currently used techniques have insufficient resolution or produce complex results that are very difficult to analyze.

CIOs And CTOs Must Understand How The Internet Of Things Is Changing How Business Is Done

The Internet of Things (IoT) is forcing telecom providers, enterprises and cloud providers to change their business models not to just thrive, but survive. Although not new, advances in interest, infrastructure and information have put IoT in a position to fundamentally change how business is done.

High-speed Quantum Memory for Photons

Physicists from the University of Basel have developed a memory that can store photons. These quantum particles travel at the speed of light and are thus suitable for high-speed data transfer. The researchers were able to store them in an atomic vapor and read them

Scientists say all the world’s data can fit on a DNA hard drive the size of a teaspoon

Even though it’s looking increasingly likely that humanity will find a way to wipe itself off the face of the Earth, there’s a chance that our creative output may live on. Servers, hard drives, flash drives, and disks will degrade (as will our libraries of paper books, of course), but a group of researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute…

Data Storage In Crystal Quartz Will Change Everything!

There’s a new type of storage device which many tech corporations have been diving into in secret for the past few years, which Hitachi newly came out with a technology they are developing which is fundamentally a sheet of Quartz Glass, which could possibly save data for up to 300 Million Years!

If you didn’t know anything about storage devices that we at present have, but anything from records, CD’s, USB sticks, magnetic tape, none of these can even lay a finger on this new, very inspiring technology.

Researchers Create A Simulated Mouse Brain in a Virtual Mouse Body

Neurorobotics engineers from the Human Brain Project have recently taken the first steps towards building a “virtual mouse” by placing a simplified computer model of the mouse brain into a virtual mouse body. This new kind of tool will be made available to scientists worldwide.

Scientists film magnetic memory in super slow-motion

Researchers at DESY have used high-speed photography to film one of the candidates for the magnetic data storage devices of the future in action. The film was taken using an X-ray microscope and shows magnetic vortices being formed in ultrafast memory cells. Their work, which has been reported by the scientists surrounding Dr. Philipp Wessels of the University of Hamburg in the journal Physical Review B, provides a better understanding of the dynamics of magnetic storage materials. Magnetic memory cells are found in every computer hard drive.

Was That Just a Gamma Ray Burst in Andromeda?! (Updated: No, but still cool.)

The Swift Gamma-Ray Burst Mission just saw something bright in the Andromeda Galaxy. It was either a Gamma-Ray Burst or an Ultraluminous X-Ray Object, but either way it will be the closest event we've ever observed. …unless it's just a known X-ray object, a programming bug, and a thunderstorm..
