What are Androids?
Androids have been mainly an element of science fiction, yet it is increasingly becoming a reality in Japan and South Korea. An android is an anthropomorphic robot - i.e. a robot that looks like a human. Many android developers call their creations "humanoids" rather than androids. Here is a video of Jules, a real android.

Here's another James Bond-ish invention that will wow you..
Amphibious cars have a rich niche history. They are fun to look at, but they don’t really move that well out of dealer showrooms. Wanna know why? Probably because they tend to be very expensive.The car costs around $200,000, but that’s the price to pay if you want a machine capable of going from 0-60mph in 4.5s on land and up to 60mph while on water. That price is just chicken for tycoons. Not to mention the benefits you can get while driving it.
Want to be a chick magnet? This is probably the hippest way on how to be one.

The latest invention of neuroscientists from Middleton, Wisc.-based Wicab, Inc. represents a gadget that can help blind or those with extremely low vision to see using their tongue. The Wicab BrainPort collects information gathered by a small digital camera mounted on a pair of glasses and then transmits it to a "lollipop" electrode array which the user attaches to their tongue.
The device's digital camera sends the light information to a base unit that has the size of a usual mobile phone. Afterwards the small base unit translates the light information into electrical impulses, thus substituting retina's function. Then the base unit transmits that information to a set of 400 microelectrodes that are positioned on the paddle placed on the user's tongue. The article in Scientific American explains that the microelectrodes excite the nerves on the surface on a person's tongue. Those, who have already tested the latest invention, enjoyed the feeling of Pop Rocks candies on their tongue.
It is also worth mentioning that the base unit of the device includes such functions as zoom control, light settings control and intensity. You can find more interesting information on various useful inventions here at www.InfoNIAC.com; please consider checking the links at the bottom of the story.With their help users can identify doorways and elevator buttons. Besides, the latest invention from Wicab researchers can help users read letters and numbers. In addition, the Wicab BrainPort allows seeing cups and forks on the table.
This latest invention is expected to hit the market by the end of 2009. Its initial price will be about $10,000 per device.

The most recent piece of news that we have is the fact that the biggest announcement from the event could be a Verizon iPhone. We know that the Apple Tablet is big news, but if the iPhone was allowed on the most popular U.S. cell phone carrier, then sales would be huge, much bigger than the iSlate, iPad, iTablet or whatever you wish to call it.
So if and when Apple does release its new tablet device, what do you think the commercial will look like. If past products are anything to go by, we know that it will be slick and polished. However, we wonder if they will do things a bit different this time round?
Yesterday we picked up on the fact that the Apple Tablet could change our reading habits forever. The reason behind this statement is simple; Apple changed the music industry with its iPod and the cell phone market with its iPhone, so why would the tablet be any different?
The biggest news of the week has to be what Steve Jobs was rumored to have said. The Apple CEO said that the iPhone is not as important as the Apple Tablet. We have to wonder what he means by that, but the tablet has to be something very special if Jobs did say this.
Here are the times for the Apple Press Event:
- 08:00AM – Hawaii
- 10:00AM – Pacific
- 11:00AM – Mountain
- 12:00PM – Central
- 01:00PM – Eastern
- 06:00PM – London
- 07:00PM – Paris
- 09:00PM – Moscow
- 03:00AM - Tokyo (January 28th)

It could really be a cool device but I can just see it now, some peeping tom is going to love this toy. This would probably be a must have for all the spy wannabes out there. Sure, it was developed primarily for real gaming experience but with the limitless possibilities it can do, it may also be used as an instrument to bring harm to others. Well, let's just hope for the best.

Pretty amazing, though, it was also a little creepy. Just imagine how many more years to come before the "i-robot" era takes place. The time when human and machines live altogether. Who knows, there may come a point that these robots will no longer be run by remote controls. They might have their own brains or soon develop feelings and emotions. As they evolve, they might even become a treat to humanity. Haha, i guess I'm thinking way too far now. But still, we've already seen it in movies, so we can bet that these things may not really be far from being a reality. ("i-robot" from the movie starred by Will Smith).
