China sends first 6G Test Satellite into orbit

China sent "the world's first 6G test satellite" into the orbit with a launch of Long March 6 carrier rocket on Friday. The satellite will become "the first technical verification of terahertz communication" tested in space.

Virgin Hyperloop pod transport tests first passenger journey

The futuristic transport concept involves pods inside vacuum tubes carrying passengers at high speeds. Virgin Hyperloop is not the only firm developing the concept but nobody has carried passengers before.

A computer predicts your thoughts

Finish researchers have developed a technique in which a computer models visual perception by monitoring human brain signals. In a way, it is as if the computer tries to imagine what a human is thinking about. 

Neuralink implants are close to ready for human testing

Roughly 1,000 electrodes will be inserted into the targeted collection of neurons, and those will connect to an implant above the surface of the brain. Musk said that it plans to do initial testing with tetraplegics. 

Will Elon Musk's Neuralink Shape the Future of Humanity?

The specific objective of Neuralink is to develop ultra-high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers. Practically, this materializes as a chip that is implanted into the brain.

UK to house to world's largest liquid air battery

The world's first commercial liquid air battery project, CryoBattery, planned for Trafford, Greater Manchester will help UK to make the most of the energy generated from its world-class solar and wind sectors.

Japan supercomputer is world's fastest

Fugaku was jointly developed by Riken and the firm Fujitsu and has a speed of roughly 415.53 petaflops—2.8 times faster than the second-ranked US Summit supercomputer's 148.6 petaflops.

New Record-Crushing Battery Lasts 1.9 Million Km in Electric Cars

Chinese company CATL says it has new battery technology that lasts up to 2 million kilometers and 16 years—and it’s ready to manufacture the batteries on demand. The battery could power a car for 50 trips around the world.

The World's First Large-Scale Quantum Computer To Be

An ambitious plan to build a quantum computer the size of a soccer field could soon become a reality. A startup founded by the researchers behind the idea has just come out of stealth with $4.5 million in funding.

Electron 'teleportation' could push quantum computing forward

Quantum teleportation is an key way to transmit info in quantum computing. In a new step forward, researchers say it may be possible between electrons.

Engineers put tens of thousands of brain synapses on a single chip

Such brain-inspired circuits could be built into small, portable devices, and would carry out complex computational tasks that only today's supercomputers can handle.

World's fastest internet speed from a single optical chip

Researchers have successfully tested and recorded Australia's fastest internet data speed, and that of the world, from a single optical chip - capable of downloading 1000 high definition movies in a split second.

A World-Class Supercomputer Exclusively for OpenAI

Last year, Microsoft announced a billion-dollar investment in OpenAI. This year the company said they’d completed a supercomputer exclusively for OpenAI’s machine learning research.

New Microscope Directly Images Protein Atoms

Two laboratories recently used cryo-electron microscopy to directly image atoms in a protein molecule with a resolution of about 1.2 x 10-7 millimeters.
