Google is using advanced computer science to make driving experience safer and more enjoyable by putting it to autopilot. Fully automated cars used by Google are on the roads at any given time, and have completed more than 300,000 miles of testing. They’ve covered a wide range of traffic, environment and weather conditions, and Google claims that there hasn’t been a single accident under computer control. These automated cars use video cameras, radar sensors and a laser range finder to sense other traffic, as well as detailed maps. For this project, here is what they are trying to achieve further.

You only need to be from the last generation to remember what life was like without all the technology we have now! Telephones with dialing pads, for example. Or written mail for that matter! In those days we all had pen pals to whom we wrote actual, hand written letters, that we stuck in an envelope onto which we attached a stamp. Those were the days! Technology develops though, and it is impossible to say it did this slowly but surely. In fact, it seems to have snowballed…
Thunderbolt is a revolutionary I/O technology that supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices through a single, compact port. It sets new standards for speed, flexibility, and simplicity. And it’s on MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, and Mac mini.
Naratte, a relatively new company, has broken new grounds in regards to near field communication (NFC). Zoosh, its new technology aims to bring the dreams of smart phones and tablets serving as payment method a reality. Instead of relying on the standard 2004 patented NFC chips, this innovation uses ultrasound to perform secure mobile transactions.
Drastically removing the barriers of having to incorporate NFC chips into both senders and receivers, the Zoosh can be added to any application or device through a simple software update. Moreover, unlike the standard NFC chips, which are expensive to manufacture and complicated to add to every day devices, the Zoosh will be comparatively more cost-effective for consumers and merchants alike.
