Could the Heartbleed security bug finally force us find an alternative to passwords? http://bbc.in/1jwmGBw
The Heartbleed security bug causing havoc online this week has allowed criminals to access our passwords for common websites for more than two years. Is it time to give up the idea of passwords? As this BBC Future article from last year highlighted, various technologies are poised to replace the password – including an edible, electronic capsule.

A car with a transparent bonnet & engine. Cool idea from our colleagues at @bbc_autos http://bbc.in/1lPLho1
For even the most experienced off-road driver, there are moments – looking skyward as the vehicle creeps up a steep incline, for one – during which blind faith trumps outright skill. The location of the hill’s crest and what’s on the other side are, for a few nervous moments, unknown. Land Rover aims to change that with a new technology that gives the driver a Superman-style look through the hood to the ground below.

Mindbending science of the day: Many physicists think other universes exist...if true, it'd mean alternate realities in which you're a movie star or where dolphins rule the Earth. http://bbc.in/1qibaMA
Is there anything outside our Universe? Many physicists think it’s possible, says Marcus Woo, but could we one day know for sure?

All the planes should have some small devices which is ejected as soon as a plane crashes, This device should continous capture the location of aeroplane so that when its ejected , it will have the last location. These small devices should be cheap so that its viable for all commercial airlines, This devices should float(put it in a basketball lol), Most important it should emit some signal which can help to detect it (a plane can have many such device since its cheap where as black box isnt).
It may not be so simple, but it aint impossible for sure.
