ISRO’s new satellite mapping service, named Bhuvan, represents its  essence in the whole India on your computer. OnAugust 13, 2009:  The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO)  unveiled the beta version of its much-hyped mapping service ‘Bhuvan’ in New Delhi.

What does the Bhuvan do ?
The Bhuvan geoportal enables users to access information on basic natural resources in the geospatial domain initially and particularly the Indian images and thematic information in multiple spatial resolutions. This would provide a sharper picture of Indian terrain barring sensitive locations such as military and nuclear installations also.

Perfect secrecy has come a step closer with the launch of the world's first computer network protected by unbreakable quantum encryption at a scientific conference in Vienna.


The network connects six locations across Vienna and in the nearby town of St Poelten, using 200 km of standard commercial fibre optic cables.

Quantum cryptography is completely different from the kinds of security schemes used on computer networks today.

These are typically based on complex mathematical procedures which are extremely hard for outsiders to crack but not impossible given sufficient computing resources or time.

But quantum systems use the laws of quantum theory, which have been shown to be inherently unbreakable.

I like to listen to music when I am working on a computer. It gives you a good tempo to work. For so many years, MusicIndiaOnline.com was the only source for us to listen our favourite songs and music. MusicIndiaOnline or Raaga.com are good sites but those are soo web 1.0. You have to click click click to get to the album that you want to listen and then once you are there, you need to have either RealPlayer plugin or Windows Media player.

Here comes Web 2.0. Users can search for a song, album or singer and once they find the song they want, they just click to add it to the playlist. That's it.. start listening to your favourite songs. The website is called Phulki.com. Phulki is a music meta search engine. I think after a long time, I have seen a startup with really good value.

Currently Phulki is available in Hindi and Tamil. The site doesn't require you to register but if you register to the site, you can create your own playlists or Save Featured playlists. It also gives you random playlist, weekly top 15 songs, old is gold etc.

Front page gives you recently played songs, popular searches and featured playlists. I think if you don't want to carry your own songs/playlist with you all the time, Phulki.com is a best site to listen to your favourite songs.

Flip, flap and zoom!
 
Soon this would become the mantra for two-wheeler riders in the coming years. After all, they will have an all-new option of a head gear, compatible with the latest blue-tooth enabled gadgets. It's light weight, transparent and can be folded and kept in a box as big as a goggle cover.
This GenNext helmet is the latest creation of National Institute of Design (NID)'s Apparel Designing and Merchandising department and is in process of being prototyped by a team led by Somesh Singh.
 
"This is a product which gives a lot more flexibility, visibility , strength, safety and of course stylen than regular helmets . It is a multi-layered helmet which can be pulled out to give the shape of an helmet. For storing it, the layers can be slipped back to give the helmet a shape of nothing bigger than a goggle and can easily find place in a bag," said Singh.
Helmets are very bulky and storing them is a difficult task. In cities where the driver and the pillion, both have to wear the helmet, the condition is worse. NID's folding helmet is a perfect solution.Read more..

Scientists at Oxford University are working on a 1930 invention by Albert Einstein to develop an environmentally friendly refrigerator which they claim will run without electricity.
Previous researches have suggested that modern fridges emit greenhouse gases called freons and as a result damage the environment. Now the Oxford team is developing appliances that can work without electricity and thereby reduce the gases.  
In fact, they have already completed a prototype of a type of fridge patented in 1930 by Einstein and his colleague, the Hungarian physicist Leo Szilard, 'The Observer' reported.  The design was partly used in the first domestic refrigerators before more efficient compressors became popular in the 1950s. It avoids the need for freons and instead uses ammonia, butane and water and takes advantage of the fact that liquids boil at lower temperatures when air pressure is lower.  
"If you go to the top of Mount Everest, water boils at a much lower temperature than it does when you're at sea level and that's because the pressure is much lower up there," lead scientist Malcolm McCulloch said.  Read more..
