Chemistry On Mars

Gear  |  Tech
"After an epic 354-million-mile trek through space, the Mars Curiosity Rover is zooming along at 13,000 miles per hour toward a scheduled Aug. 6 landing on the Red Planet to search for evidence of extraterrestrial life. We took a visit to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory to talk to the Mars Science Laboratory Deputy Scientist, Ashwin Vasavada, who gave us a look "under the hood" of the rover, explaining the role of the analytical chemistry instruments found onboard Curiosity. Curiosity's primary mission goal is to determine the habitability of the Gale Crater, which scientists believe was once filled with water. Curiosity is basically an entire chemistry lab packed into a one mobile unit, equipped with the tools necessary to test the chemical composition of soil. Test results from these instruments will pave the way for future Mars missions, and may provide insight in the search for life on other planets."

Microsoft Creates Smartphone Tech for Virtual Sword Fighting

Gear  |  Tech


A team at Microsoft Research has created a hardware localization technology that enables you to play a multi-player sword fighting game using only smartphones. To play SwordFight, two players aim their phones at each other and move aiming for each other's handset, and try to jab at the other person’s handset. If a player hits within six inches of their opponent's handset, the opponent loses a point. It's all measured via the phone's accelerometer and digital compass, and the addition of the new little chirp allows the phones to know how close they got to each other. Microsoft Research team have developed this system called FAR. It's a system where one smartphone can locate another smartphone and measure its distance via chirps.One phone sends out a chirp, and a second phone determines the distance and the position of the first phone by measuring the time it takes for the chirp to travel to its speaker.

This solution is way less likely to strain your wrists, so it is a better choice for many people who haven’t been able to use a computer since they were injured. Is this the future of computer interaction?
