Airless Tyre : That Never Inflates

Air less tires also known as Non-pneumatic tires(NPT) are tires that do not use air and are not supported by air pressure.
Airless tires generally have higher rolling friction and provide much less suspension than similarly shaped and sized pneumatic tires.
Air less Tyre parts

With the advancement in science, they tires have been modified enough that they can now be used in sports cars and domestic cars. Imagine you never need to stop at the gas station to check the car Tyre air pressure.

The technology continuously  improving .and they tires have taken much more modern and cool shape

Google's New Office in London

Innovative minds needs motivation and what best for a Google employee would be; when his own office environment is his best motivation.

Google has recently opened up a new Office in London. No need to explain further. Pictures will say it all

This morning in the Google house: One of the ultra trendy meeting rooms in the London office

And relax: A Google worker hoping for inspiration

Designed to inspire: Cushions are all-important at Google

Playtime: Google workers are treated to a pool table and games consoles

Central Perk, Google-style: The Coffee Lab serves 19 blends

It's an office, but not as we know it: Google's corridors look very futuristic

Presentation suite: For bigger team talks bosses can use this state-of-the-art suite

Chill a minute: The office is designed to be completely stress free

Music to their ears: Workers can always tune out with a pair of headphones if they're being distracted

Bizarre: Unconventional seating is a must at Google

Creative space: Workers can even write ideas down on white boards in the corridors

One of the many relaxation areas in L4

Big draw: A picture of a spaceship from Star Wars adorns one of the meeting-room walls

One hull of an office: The resident rowing boat

There's no diary room, but L4 does have futuristic meeting pods

May the force be with them: Programmers are encouraged to play with toys

Perhaps Google Googled 'trendy office' for inspiration

The next Google Doodle?

All white on the night: There aren't many dark corners at Google

L4 is paradise for creative thinkers

Net gain: Hi-tech video conferencing is a cinch at L4

Not a speck of dust in sight: Two workers admire their new super-clean office environment

Global headquarters: The Googleplex headquarters in San Francisco is also quirky

Google Front Desk

Relax and Think

HighAlert ! Laptop WiFi may damage sperms

Those of you who are going to get married or have been dreaming about having children with your current girlfriend of-course after getting married. 

HighAlert !  Laptop WiFi may damage sperms.

Scientist from US and Argentina carried out a research and proved that extended use of a laptop with the internet Wi-Fi on might damage the sperms.

2 separate sperm samples were taken from each donor and there were equally separated into different pots. One of them was placed close to a laptop with the Wi-Fi switched on and left for around 4 hours.The other one was placed in the same environment with the only difference was that Wi-Fi was switched off.

Scientist diecoverd in the end of the experiment; 25 percent of the sperms which were left with the laptop and Wi-Fi on were dead and also there were significant changes in their genetic code. comparably sperms having no contact with Wi-Fi were dead by only 14 percent.

Though scientists acknowlege that heat can also be on of the reason that can damage sperms, but they believe heat cannot cause such adverse effect. They believe electromagnetic radiations may and might be the main culprit.

President of the Society for Male Reproduction and Urology, Robert Oates, questioned the findings, telling Reuters, “This is not real-life biology, this is a completely artificial setting. It is scientifically interesting, but to me it doesn’t have any human biological relevance.”

To maintain healthy sperm, Oates said “staying lean, eating healthy foods, exercising, not taking drugs and not smoking” are the most important factors.

Clearly, more research needs to be done to establish whether using a laptop on your lap for an extended period of time has any effect on sperm.

NASA's new rover on its way to Mars

New Rover on its way to Mars
(Don't miss the animated video at the end of this article)

Atlas V rockets carrying Curiosity
NASA's new Mars rover system named Curiosity, launched and left earth on Saturday, November 26, 2011. The new Mars rover system was packed and blasted in rocket(Atlas V). This Rover system(Curiosity) carries NASA's bigger and more capable new rover. This lengthy journey is 570-million-kilometer far and it takes around 9 months to reach MARS also known as The RED Planet.

This new rover will have to overcome lot of challenges in space during these 9 month journey. One of these challenges is probably most exciting and that is the innovative way Curiosity(Rover) will be landing on the surface of the Red Planet.

New Curiosity vs Previous ones
Previous MARS rover missions known as 'Spirit' and 'Opportunity', which were of the size of golf carts, were landed on "air bags" dropped from an air craft.(Previous Rover's landing)

This new ROVER is much more biggher and heavier this time. -- it is almost the size of a small car, and weighs 900 kg, interestingly it is equipped with a nuclear power supply (O yeah !)  and 10 scientific instruments
Rover's Parts

Landing Pattern
NASA team this time will lower the rover on cables known as the -- "skycrane maneuver." in which it will be descended just like commandos descend from helicopter during war.i.e. through rappelling. 

skycrane maneuver

NASA has prepared a computer animation which you can see below to understand it completely.

Snake Like Robot can climb up trees

Snake Like Robot can climb up trees

Scientists have always been trying to create robots that can mimic the movements of animals. The research in this field is now gone vast enough that scientists have been able to create a robot that moves just like a snake and is even able to climb up the trees.

The creators(Carnegie Mellon) of this Snake robots have named it as "Uncle Sam". Uncle Sam has the ability to crawl, roll and it can move sideways. But the best thing thing that it does to impress you is that it can wrap it self around any pole or a tree and can climb up too.

The robot is composed of segments, and each segment has the ability to move on its own and creates its own movement intelligent enoughly to move forward on ground and upwards on poles and trees.

Worlds Most Expensive IPad (dinosaurs bones + gold) Costs 5 million pounds

A customized iPad made from gold, diamonds and shavings of Tyrannosaurus rex bone(a dinosaur type) has been billed as the world's most expensive gadget.

The £5m device is being promoted by British luxury goods specialist Stuart Hughes.

The iPad 2 is encrusted with 12.5-carat diamonds and has 53 separate gems forming the iconic Apple logo.

The back section has been formed in 24-carat gold and weighs two kilogrammes.

But the most expensive part is actually the main front frame which is made from the oldest rock the world has to offer - Ammolite.

Sourced from Canada, the stone is more than 75 million years old.

Just to cap off the unique design, part of a T-rex thigh bone dating back 65 million years is claimed to have been shaved into the stone.

The final touch is a single-cut 8.5-carat flawless diamond inlaid in platinum surrounded by 12 satellite gems.

Despite the hefty price tag, Hughes told Sky News one of the devices has already been sold to an anonymous buyer.

He claims they were actually finished earlier this year and says the dinosaur bone was sourced from Arizona.

The designer is known for creating "ultra-luxury" goods, including a £219,995 Macbook Air and a diamond and platinum iPhone costing £20,995.

It was claimed earlier this year he had built a super yacht encased in gold worth £3bn but he has since admitted this was not real.

Genetically grown Dengue mosquito kills its own species.

Genetically grown Dengue mosquito will kill its own species

Gone are the days of those science fiction movies where it was fantasized as a story line that in a lab, genetically malfunction human converted into a monster and start killing human species.

 So to call it a good luck for dengue affected countries, but a marvalous breakthrough in the field of biotechnology. A british biotech lab has devised a way and created a species of dengue mosquitoes that kills its own larva. just imagine a mosquito giving eggs and the other one killing those larvae - and yet both belong to the same breed.

A lab grown species of dengue mosquito has been already released in Florida whose one and only deadliest trait is to kill their own offspring. Yup that means that a kid won;t be able to reach the adulthood because of the genetically introduced disease their parents gave them.

About Dengue: Dengue mosquito is re known for deadly Dengue fever also known as breakbone fever, is an infectious tropical disease caused by the dengue virus. Symptoms include fever, headache, muscle and joint pains, and a characteristic skin rash that is similar to measles. In a small proportion of cases the disease develops into the life-threatening dengue hemorrhagic fever, resulting in bleeding, low levels of blood platelets and blood plasma leakage, or into dengue shock syndrome, where dangerously low blood pressure occurs
Dengue Fever around the world(2005)
Though this technique of genetically modifying insects already exsist decades age, but this is the first time it has been used successfully for mosquitoes. we hope that this technique won't kill the whole insect species of mosquitoes and also it is not sure what impact it will make on the environment.
