 ONE THE EDGE OF INNOVATION: TECHNOLOGIES AND PRODUCTS

  •  PAVL: "The Flying (and Driving) Dutchman"
    What happens if one merges a car, a bike, and a chopper? "The Flying Dutchman", as authors of a small Dutch company Spark Design call their "child": a new vehicle which can drive and fly, and as they think might be quite popular in future.

  • Knowledge Discovery: a new technology that accelerates discoveries?
    Using advanced Artificial Intelligence and the latest computer technologies, scientists at Purdue University develop an integrated environment that will enable researchers directly manipulate visual data within 3D environment. Just like in "Minority Report". http://news.uns.purdue.edu/UNS/html4ever/2004/041018.Caruthers.discover.html

  • 13,300-lumen solid state RGB light engine
    By developing a unique technology for producing ceramics-metal composites to manufacture light diodes, Lamina Ceramics developed LED which is 10 times brighter than previously known. http://www.laminaceramics.com/news/101804.aspx
     

  •  Wireless Household Internet Radio
    This radio looks like an ordinary radio, but instead of searching traditional radio stations, it scans WiFi stations broadcasting on the Internet. No PC needed.

    Buses which drive in herds?

    Toyota offers a new system for transportation: IMTS (Intelligent Multimode Transit System) will enable special unmanned buses gathering together and drive on dedicated roads, thus offering a low-cost alternative to railways. (Interesting illustration to "mono-bi-poly" trend of evolution).
