Human balance is known to decline with age, and an international team of researchers has provided new evidence around whether this particular ability can serve as an indicator for risk of disease and death. The study involving more than 1,700 subjects found a disproportionate rate of death among those unable to complete a 10-second balance test, with the authors suggesting such an examination cou
Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have developed a powerful new optical chip that can process almost 2 billion images per second. The device is made up of a neural network that processes information as light without needing components that slow down traditional computer chips, like memory.Continue ReadingCategory: Computers, TechnologyTags: Optical, Optical Computing, Light, Computer,
Jason Major of Lights in the Dark recently shared a classic video clip from NASA's 1969 Apollo 11 Saturn V rocket launch on Twitter. The video is a stunning example of high-speed photography, featuring incredible footage of the rocket's Aerojet Rocketdyne F-1 engines captured at 500 frames per second on a 16mm film camera.This insane 500fps video footage shows the liftoff of the Apollo 11 Saturn
Researchers in Japan have clocked a new speed record for data transmission – a blistering 1.02 petabits per second (Pb/s). Better yet, the breakthrough was achieved using optical fiber cables that should be compatible with existing infrastructure.Continue ReadingCategory: Telecommunications, TechnologyTags: Data, Transmission, Record, World Records, Japan, Internet, Optics, Fiber Optic
The world’s most powerful X-ray laser is ready for operation after a massive overhaul. A powerful upgrade to Stanford’s Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS), LCLS-II uses temperatures colder than deep space to accelerate electrons to near light-speed and fire off a million X-ray bursts per second.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: Laser, X-ray, Stanford University, SLAC, Physics, Electrons, Ima
The Slow Mo Guys are back at it with more slow motion video. This time, the crew have recorded popping a giant bubble at 50,000 frames per second. How 'giant' are we talking? The bubble is large enough for Slow Mo Guys team member Dan to be completely encased.Gavin and Daniel started recording at 1,000 fps using the Phantom Flex4K. The Flex4K is designed for cinematic applications, so while it do
Gavin and Dan of The Slow Mo Guys are back to their typical slow mo fun. This time, the crew overloaded capacitors and recorded the results at a blisteringly fast 187,500 frames per second. When slowed down for presentation, that's about 7500 times slower than you can see with your naked eye.The camera of choice is the Phantom TMX 7510. The crew used the same camera last summer to record glass sh
Random numbers are crucial for computing, but our current algorithms aren’t truly random. Researchers at Brown University have now found a way to tap into the fluctuations of quasiparticles to generate millions of truly random numbers per second.Continue ReadingCategory: Physics, ScienceTags: Mathematics, Computers, Quantum, Quantum Physics, Electrons, Brown University, Algorithms
Finding time to go the gym or even complete workouts at home can be a tricky task for busy folk, but a new study suggests even lifting a dumbbell once or twice a day can be worth your while, particularly when it comes to combating the effects of aging. The research examined the effects of different forms of bicep curls and found one in particular can lead to significant strength improvements, eve
New Jersey's Vision Research has introduced a new high-speed Machine Vision camera that makes use of fiber optic cable technology to capture 4K video at up to 937 frames per second, or over 52,000 fps at lower resolutions.Continue ReadingCategory: Photography, TechnologyTags: 4k, Cameras, Video Cameras is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
