“Google patented building robots with personalities”

Yes, you heard it right!

A new patent was awarded to Google recently for outlining the ways to download and customize the personality of a robot or computer. Google’s patent details a cloud-based system where a personality could be downloaded to a robot, in the same way one might download an app.

This means, say you like working with a specific person at your work and for some reasons he/she stopped coming for work, you will miss them right? But not after Google introduces the worker robots. Because these robots can mimic the personalities of any user seamlessly and you couldn’t tell the difference.

So, in near future you will not only be assisted by robots but you can also program them with specific personalities according to your comfort and be in harmony.

And who knows, possibilities are you can bring back your loved ones from dead with these robots.

Best IEEE projects list in mechatronics

To the fans out there for “Breaking Bad” television series, Better Call Saul is a well-known phrase. When any criminal is on trouble, Saul the lawyer comes to the rescue and gets them out. Zapping all the issues brilliantly with crazy skills, Saul became a strong character and even a new series is being telecasted just with his story line.

Now, if anyone across the globe is in need to eliminate or zap dangerous viruses like Ebola in a quarantine zone, better call Saul.

Yes, Saul will come to the rescue. But only difference, Saul who comes to rescue this time is not the fictional character but an advanced robot.

Standing 5 feet 2 inches tall, Saul is a germ zapping robot that can harness power to kill off dangerously contagious viruses like Ebola in a gist. Saul uses pulses of high intensity ultraviolet rays that are 25000 times brighter than florescent lights to split bacterial cell walls and eliminates the dangerous pathogens commonly found in quarantine zones.

Saul is super smart and very efficient that it can eliminate viruses like Ebola, two meters out in any direction in just five minutes at an efficiency rate of 99.9 percent.

RISC vs CISC

Published on 21 Oct 2018. Written by Vasanth Vidyakar

Instruction set architecture is an integral part of a processor, which is necessary for creating machine level programs to perform any mathematical or logical operations. This acts as an interface between hardware & software and make the processor respond to commands like execution, creation, deletion etc. given by the user.

The performance of a processor solely depends upon the instruction set architecture designed in it. We know both software and hardware are needed for proper functioning of a processor, but there is always a debate about which should play a major role.

For example, the hardware part of Intel is named as Complex Instruction Set Computer (CISC) and Apple named their hardware as Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC)

Intel believes that hardware should play a major role than the software and built their processor on CISC. Whereas Apple bet is on software rather than hardware and built their processor on RISC.

What is MOSFET?

Published on 21 Oct 2018. Written by Vasanth Vidyakar

The MOSFET (Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor) is a semiconductor device that is widely used for switching and amplifying signals in electronic devices. It is a type of field effect transistor that works by electronically varying the width of a channel along which charge carriers (electrons) flow. The wider the channel, the better the device conducts.

MOSFET will be the core of an integrated circuit and it can be designed and fabricated on to a single chip because of its small sizes. Since the body of MOSFET is frequently connected to the source terminal it acts like a three terminal device like field effect transistor.

How to make a robot

Latest in - “Emily rescued 300 Syrian refugees from drowning off the Greek island of Lesbos”

You might have thought that bulletproof, jet-powered, advanced technology integrated superheroes with colourful super awesome outfits exist only in movies, but it is time to reconsider.

Now such type of superheroes are a reality and Emily is the first one to achieve such colours.

You might be referencing Emily to be an associate of Diana aka Wonder Woman hailing from Themyscira Island with a mission to save humanity. But it isn’t the case. Sorry DC fans! :(

Emily is actually a man-made wonder and got the name through simplification of Emergency Integrated Lifesaving Lanyard.

Where to buy good robotics kits

“It is in your hands to create a better world for all who live in it”
- Nelson Mandela

We all might have come across this quote one way or another in our lifetime. And it makes a lot of sense to concentrate on the work that we do with our hands to create a better future for everyone in this world.

I recently came across one student who seems to have taken this quote to an entirely different level, where he worked on providing an additional hand for everyone to get more things done is short period of time. And succeeded in it too.

Sang-won Leigh is the guy behind this. He worked on a project for MIT’s Fluid Interfaces course. The project is based on the topic – Robotic Symbionts Wearable.

For the people who are wondering what the above topic is, Robotic Symbionts are like cyborg devices which any human can integrate to his/her body. These electronic devices are developed in such a way to receive commands directly from the humans using nerve impulses. So, you can literally control these devices just by thinking about them in your brain. Super awesome isn’t it!

Best IEEE projects list for Electrical Engineering students

"Let our advance worrying become advance thinking and planning"
- Winston Churchill

I found this quote to be more intriguing and resonating with the current engineering student’s mind-set. A number of engineering students are finding it extremely difficult to decide upon a good project topic to do for their curriculum.

Especially, this is very challenging for electrical engineering students as they need to come up with a project topic that should be both innovative to showcase their skillsets to recruiters as well as simple enough to learn and complete within the short period of time that they have.

Because of this, a number of EEE students go into an advance worrying mind-set which lowers their confidence and enforce themselves to go for ready-made projects that are sold on the black market.

By buying such ready-made projects, they are not only compromising their learning but also their engineering career. As you know already that the projects you build play a very vital role in getting good core engineering jobs and acquiring higher studies admissions in esteemed universities.

List of good networking projects for engineering students

“Networking technology is at the heart of the Internet connecting devices and local networks with the global public Internet. Planning, designing, building, managing, and supporting IP networks all require dedicated networking skills”
- Tae Yoo, Senior Vice President, Corporate Affairs at Cisco

Networking is a technology that is underrated or rather unknown to many people because of the way it works. It always operates behind the scenes in our homes and businesses & rarely does any individual think about it unless some problem arises in the operation of devices being used.

But as engineers, we need to observe and appreciate the innovation happening in networking to make our life easier.

If we look couple of years back, networking gave us the power of cloud computing through which we were able to store our data on cloud and also gave the super power to us by providing internet with 3G/4G networks. It also redefined the way we use Internet by giving us WiFi hotspots, wireless modems, tri-band broadband connections etc.

Best robotics projects for school kids

Robots are simply awesome. Who wouldn’t agree to this fact? Everyone is crazy about the fact that robots make complex tasks look simpler.

From the robot that is used in manufacturing line to carry out tedious tasks to the robot that roams around Mars collecting tons of data, all robots are fascinating. Even robots make excellent movie characters which most of the kids admire and love.

Raise your hand, if your kid fell in love with the robot character that they saw in a movie (my vote is for Bay max from Big Hero 6) and nudged you so much to help build their very own robot. Unfortunately, we (you and I born too early in this world) didn’t have the same opportunity as our kids to learn robotics in our school. I would have probably been a NASA scientist today if I did that. (OK. That might be an over stretch but you understand what I mean – it would have surely motivated me to be much more ambitious in technology!) Our founders still went to IITs but I am sure they went because of peer pressure and not because of motivation. (I hope they wont read this :D)

3 effective ways to help your kid make the first robot

“How to make the first robot?” is a very tough question to answer, but never took any coaching on robotics.

Since I never made my first robot back in my school, it became much harder for me to visualize the learning that I received. I know, most of you reading this would have undergone similar childhood.

But that’s okay, because now you and your kid can learn to build cool robots together :)
