Apple files a patent to move the Touch ID to the iPhone/iPad touchscreen

Future iPhones and iPads could move Apple's Touch ID fingerprint sensor from the device's home button to the display itself, allowing a more seamless and potentially dynamic way for a device to securely authenticate a user.


#apple   #touchid   #patents  
A patent filing made by Apple called "Fingerprint Sensor in an Electronic Device," shows how Touch ID might be placed directly inside the touchscreen of an iPhone or iPad instead of under the home button. The patent would allow users to have their fingerprint scanned by pressing on a specific location on the screen of the handset or tablet.

A New powerful microscope gives scientists gives clearer images of molecules

A  new Cryo-electron Microscope, called the Titan Krios developed by Australian scientists gives them the capability to see even individual molecules which they think could provide better development in the treatment and cure of diseases. 

Note: The picture below is of the Ebola Virus !!

This article from two years ago appears to show even more stunning microscopy using AFM. You can see the atomic bonds. I suppose, though, this process might not be as effective for biological specimens.

Quantum equation predicts universe has no beginning

In the paper published by Ahmed Farag Ali and Saurya Das, they show that the Big Bang singularity can be resolved by their new model in which the universe has no beginning and no end.

Original Paper:

#quantum   #bigbang   #space  
( —The universe may have existed forever, according to a new model that applies quantum correction terms to complement Einstein's theory of general relativity. The model may also account for dark matter and dark energy, resolving multiple problems at once.

+Dennis Wronka Perceptually it does. its like the line "I plan on living forever, and so far Im doing great!"
There is no way with our limited lifespan, we could ever find that out. The math is theoretical, we can actually prove anything physically.

As +NASA plans to send humans to Mars, the real obstacle is not technology but the politicians.

The NASA's current plan, is to land humans on an asteroid in 2020's which would be a stepping stone in deep-space exploration and further in the 2030's it plans to send humans to Mars. But the asteroid mission is not accepted by the House Republicans.

Read the full story in the link. Definitely worth the time

Scouting Profile
        I have completed about 12 Proficiency (Merit) Badges: Cook, Pioneer, Citizen, Games Leader, Sanitation Promoter, Star Man, Ecologist, Soil Conservator, Nutrition Educator, Ambulance Man, Secretary, Camper. (This certainly will not be the end.)
        I have also participated in many social service programmes from Anti-Leprosy Day Programme to Cleanliness Campaign, Tree Plantation to Preservation of Greenery, 'STOP' Child Labour to Drug Awareness programme, RainWater Harvesting Programme to Non-Violence Day Walk, etc. I have marched in the 65th Republic Day Parade at Marina Beach in front of Chief Minister and the Governor of the State.

My Experiments:
  • Have done an Arduino program which interfaces with my Linux System and receives infrared signals from a Sony TV remote to control the system.
  • Have created an Arduino sketch that automatically senses the surrounding luminosity using an LDR and adjusts the brightness of the LED. It lights bright when the surrounding is dimmer and vice versa.
  • Have created a blog about Scouting and made a complete UI makeover to make it a responsive site under all device resolutions.
  • Have created a nifty script (Shell) to instantly convert pictures of all formats into the Open Webp format which is 40% lesser in size with the same quality.
  • Am creating a motion sensing web camera, that tracks my gestures to perform tasks in my computer using the Open Computer Vision library (OpenCV)
  • Am practicing Blindfold Speedcubing and One Handed Solving with my Dayan Zhanchi. 
  • Have successfully cracked a WEP Wireless Network with AirCrack-ng tools.
  • Have Reverse-tethered Android Phone to laptop using bluetooth.
  • Have run the Android apps on Chrome using ArChon runtime on linux.
