Rollout Laptop!!!

Do you believe if I say, a laptop can be rolled into a cylindrical shape?! Now it is not at all a fiction, it is reality. Advances in flexible OLED technologies have led to the concept of the Rolltop, a laptop computer that can be rolled!
Watch Video

The concept, developed by Orkin Design, a  German, consists of a flat panel display wrapped around a central cylindrical column. A power plug detaches from the top of the column, the power cord also acts as the carry strap, and the speakers and USB ports are stored inside the column. Once rolled out flat, the Rolltop can be used as a 17 inch tablet computer or can be tilted into a notebook shape, with the lower half of the screen becoming a virtual keyboard.
Now there are still some design constraints, but Orkin hopes to see the product be completed for practical use. Be calm and wait a little. Nothing is impossible!

World’s first artificial leaf!!!

Here comes the world’s first artificial leaf!

Scientists have created the world’s first practical artificial leaf that can turn sunlight and water into energy. A team of researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology is behind this astonishing invention. According to them the artificial leaf from silicon, electronics and various catalysts which spur chemical reactions within the device, can use sunlight to break water into hydrogen and oxygen which can then be used to create electricity in a separate fuel cell. For their research, the scientists identified a set of inexpensive, common catalysts including nickel and cobalt. The lead researcher was Daniel Nocera. They claim this could pave the way for a cheaper source of power in developing countries like India.
Let’s wait for a day when each home has its own power station. Let’s imagine, the villages in India and Africa not long from now purchasing an affordable basic power system based on this technology! Who said technology is not for the needy?!!!
