Bionic hybrid age may well be flickering to life. Naweed I Syed

Standard

Dr. Naveed I Syed is a world renowned scientist of Pakistani origin and the Head of the Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy at the University of Calgary’s Hotchkiss Brain Institute in Canada.He is the first scientist to connect brain cells to a silicon chip. Dr. Syed has travelled worldwide giving lectures and presenting presentations about the human mind and his mini chip. One of the most important contributions of Dr Naweed was to ‘connect brain cells to a silicon chip’, the first scientist to do so.

This opened up a field of unimaginable potential bringing artificial intelligence to the next stage. He estimates that science fiction type ‘Machine Men’ may be developed in one or two decades, with the use of his silicon chip.The discovery ‘Brain on a chip’ is a major step in the research of integrating computers with human brains to help people control artificial limbs, monitor people’s vital signs, correct memory loss or impaired vision.

Live Stream on campus:

Being able to monitor the dialogue between cell and silicon chip is a crucial step toward one day manipulating it, raising the possibility of neurochip implants that can help restore sight or language after a stroke, or repair neurons that malfunction in a wide range of brain disorders, from Parkinson’s disease to Alzheimer’s.

Until now, the Calgary group had conducted most of its research on cells taken from rat and snail brains. Snail neurons, Dr. Syed said, are four to 10 times the size of human brain cells and easier to manipulate on a chip one millimeter square.

“That’s what the dream really is all about .where a man made device can be integrated into living human tissue and become part of it,” Dr. Syed said.The humbling part, he said, has been the complex wiring of the human brain.”A lot of people still think bionics is science fiction,” Dr. Syed said. “It’s not. It’s already here.”

The Pokébible : Pokémon Go

Standard

 

What Are Pokémon?

”Pokémon“ is a combination of the words “Pocket” and “Monsters,” and you might remember them from the last time they sparked an international craze. The first Pokémon games were released in 1996 on the Game Boy .Basically, the game takes place in a world full of Pokémon, monsters of various sizes that can be captured by tiny red balls and tamed by Pokémon trainers.The game, which marries a classic 20-year old franchise with augmented reality, has taken the world by storm despite having been launched in only five countries the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Britain and Germany.

So What’s Pokémon Go? 

Last week, Niantic Labs released a new augmented reality game featuring the monsters from the video game series, and it’s called Pokémon GO. The basic premise is the same as the normal games: players have to capture, train and fight Pokemon. The big difference is that thePokémon are now located in the real world, at least, sort of. Pokémon GO is a GPS enabled game that asks the players to walk around their neighborhoods and hunt down Pokémon. Allows you to take photos of Pokémon in all sorts of weird places and then share them.

 It’s geocaching, basically, which you might be familiar with, just with game mechanics and visuals layered on top of it. The CEO of developer Niantic Labs is John Hanke, who is one of the original chief architects of Google Earth. The head of the developer behind Nintendo Co Ltd’s (7974.T) Pokemon GO said he wanted to launch the smash-hit mobile game in roughly 200 countries and regions “relatively soon” and was working on bolstering server capacity to enable the wider rollout.

The Fandom was perfectly set up for Pokémon Go:

 Nintendo has something called the “same generation hypothesis,” which says that certain audiences stick with their childhood games even after they’ve grown out of the perceived target audience. Pokémon was one of those games, and Nintendo saw it in the dataPokémon has been a hugely popular brand for two decades, and that recognition, combined with the novel idea of hunting in your backyard, has caught hold. So when Pokémon Go came out, it already had a massive built in audience of people who had devices that could play the game.

Pokémon GO: Tips, tricks and cheats : 

If you’re looking to get an edge on other players, here are a few tips and tricks that you might find useful.The most common pokémon are found in the 2km eggs, with the rarest in the 10km eggs .which means you’re in for a lot of walking if you want to advance in the game. But that’s where Rusty Cage’s hack comes in. for more on the hacks visit. PokéStops and the world.

Finding Gyms and Pokestops

The portals from Ingress and the Pokestops and gyms from Pokémon Go are at the same locations.Therefore, using the ingress intel map will provide you with your Pokémon Go map. I haven’t found an official map yet, but this has served the purpouse so far.

Or just look for any of the following, as they are typically great hubs:

  • Shopping centers
  • Parks
  • Museums
  • Churches
  • City Landmarks (city hall etc)
  • Historical Landmarks (statues etc)
  • College Campuses
  • Any other tourist location

Pokestops and Gyms in Pakistan

Started by Imdad Khan, a number of helpful Pokemon Go players have pooled their information together to plot all the known Gyms and Pokestops on a map. As of yet, it contains around 65 locations in Karachi, 35 in Lahore, 63 in Islamabad/Rawalpindi, 3 in Multan, 1 in Rahim Yar Khan, 3 in Bhera and 3 in Abbottabad.

‘Pokémon Go’ Craze Raises Safety Issues

Advancing in the game involves collecting items such as “Poké Balls,” which are needed to catch monsters, and can be found at “PokéStops.” Players use captured creatures to fight other players at “gyms.” Social media is full of reports of players hurting themselves by tripping and falling while glued to their phone screens.The authorities have warned people not to drive while searching for characters .

The game “could be potentially leading people into areas where they don’t belong,” such as construction sites or shuttered storefronts.Which may lead to trespassing /breach. Law enforcement has warned people to be mindful while exploring. Pokemon Go app craze could be used by pedophiles to lure unsuspecting young players.

Faraday Futures’s Electric Super Car to compete with Tesla .

Standard

 

First unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on January 4, 2016, the FFZERO1 Concept vehicle is a test bed and a parallel study from which the design and engineering teams continue to draw inspiration and solutions for the future range of clean, intuitive electric vehicles.It is a car of concepts. Explore Faraday Future’s groundbreaking racecar.

The design features a glass roof, which offers a clear view of the white carbon fiber interior and some of the car’s more novel ideas, like a smartphone mount in the center of the steering wheel, the Halo Safety System that supports the driver’s head and neck, and a helmet that feeds the driver water and oxygen. The instrument panel is also designed to gather biometric data about the driver .The goal was to build a car with a sixth sense for its driver’s intentions and needs. One with adaptive personalization, seamless transfer of custom vehicle configurations, access to live images, and real tihina me data visualization.

The Mean machine looks more appropriate for a race track than a city street thanks to a claimed 1,000 horsepower, a 0-60 time under three seconds, and a top speed over 200 miles per hour. Of course, those are all purely theoretical numbers since this is just a concept, though the company teases that it could see “limited production.” . For the powertrain, they started from the ground up with the Variable Platform Architecture (VPA). It features a new battery structure that’s centrally placed for integrity and arranged into modular strings

Sculpted by aerodynamics for driving performance and efficiency, the smooth, flowing surfaces of the FFZERO1 Concept morph from one unique element to another, creating volumes that tightly embrace the driver—ultimately forming an ideal environment for high performance operation.

The two sisters Alanna & Jennifer Tynan grew up in the small mountainous town of Nelson, Canada BC .Causing trouble and playfulness of the mountains, rivers and lakes. As children they had spent many winters in small villages in latin America, Mexico seeing firsthand a reality much different from their own. Though the culture was vibrant and the people were jovial, it was impossible to ignore the poverty.

They came to understand that things are done differently around the world but we recognized that basic needs transcend physical borders. The need for clean water. Sanitary living conditions. Access to health services. Basic education. Basic human rights that people in many areas of the world do not have the means to access. This lead for them to start the Latitude Project so that they could partner with communities and do what they can to help.

There Adventurous personalities lead them to go on ventures the love for  campfire, spontaneous road trips and being part of something much bigger than there selves. They clame not to be a couple of Mother Theresas there imperfect humans with a desire to leave the world a little better than it was when they got here. There lovers of this fragile and wonderful life and staunch believers in the sentiment that to improve and enjoy the world are not mutually exclusive. And luckily,There not the only ones.

They explore, listen and respond. Communities express what they need and they work together to achieve that change. This way, projects are locally embraced and sustained over time. Each unique project is reflective of differing customs, cultures, and ever-changing needs. 100% of public donations fund projects on the ground without trickling through administration fees: from education facilities to medical initiatives, roofs to clean water, Latitude helps people meet their basic needs so they can live their own adventures.
