It turns out that "Surrogates", staring Bruce Willis, might not have been just a movie after all. For those who haven’t seen it, in the near future when people don’t interact with the environment themselves and instead have human-looking robots they control remotely do everything for them. Telesar V might not be nearly as sophisticated as the robots in Surrogates, yet the concept is still pretty similar. Telestar V is a telexistence robot system being researched by a group at the Keio University led by Professor Tachi. The idea behind the technology is having a robot you can remotely control.

IBM computer chip mimics the human brain

ibmchip

IBM is working on a new class of computer chips that are designed to imitate the human brain's abilities for perception, action and cognition. The chips’ processing power is similar to that of Watson. IBM hopes to use these chips in “cognitive computers.” These computers would learn through experience instead of being programmed. Just like the human brain.

I play a lot of games on my smartphone. The trouble is that a smartphone was never really designed for serious video game playing, and that's where the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is supposed to come into the picture. It's PlayStation certified and is purpose-built to give gamers what they want while still doing the usual Android smartphone thing too.

Quantum Optics Researchers Store Information in a Single Atom

single-atom-quantum-memory

Researchers with the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching, Germany have managed to store quantum information in a single atom. The researchers wrote the quantum state of single particles of light, called photons, into a rubidium atom and read it out again after a certain storage time. This technique could potentially be used to design powerful quantum computers and to network them with each other across large distances.
