Tech Thursdays- Unhackable Internet



An internet based on quantum physics will soon enable inherently secure communication.  Messages sent over this network will be unhackable. The Delft network will be the first to transmit information between cities using solely quantum techniques.

 

Entangled particles are difficult to create, and harder still to transmit over long distances. The research team has demonstrated it can transmit 0.93 miles. They’re confident they can set up a quantum link between Delft...

Tech Thursdays-New glove



Haptic technology mimics the experience of touch by stimulating areas of the skin in ways felt in the real world, through vibration or motion. The human hand has a high density of tactile receptors and is a challenging area to encode information through haptic stimulation.

 

The three-way directional skin stretch device built into the fingertips of the wearable haptic glove is like wearing a second skin—it's soft, stretchable and mimics the sense of touch. The technology is...
