Fingerprint Attack on iphones by UBER app

Image
Nothing is going great for the app based cab service UBER from stealing confidential data of Alphabet’s self driving car project to mistreating employees.
As per the report of The New York Times Uber secretly identified and tagged the iphones if the app has been deleted from the iphone and devices information is erased still Uber could track the iphones .Thus violating the privacy guidelines by Apple.
UBER used the FINGERPRINTING Attack to get the information. They geofenced Apple’s HQ in Cupertino due to which a virtual geographic boundary is created by the means of GPS or RFID technology thus enabling the software to trigger a response when a mobile phone entered or left the said area. Uber then jumble its code for the person who is in that geofenced area by creating a digital lasso around so that it can keep the particular person in dark. This attack could not be detected by the employees at the Apple’s HQ in Cupertino.

As per the report of IAMAI, Delhi stands ahead as the internet ready state

Image
Delhi has topped in the terms of the internet readiness as it has a very competitive position in the areas of IT environment, e-participation and govt. e-services as per the report presented by the industry body IAMAI. Delhi has left behind Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Maharashtra.
Chandigarh is ranked second with e-infrastructure and e-participation. Third slot has been given to Puducherry for e-infrastructure. Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology secretary Aruna Sundararajan said that within 5-6 years India will be ranked in top 5th in connectivity.
The report states that Delhi, Karnataka and Maharashtra are having the highest number of digital startups.

Flying Insect like robot - RoboBee by Harvard University

Image
As engineers and scientists collaborate to design ever more sophisticated aerial robots, nature has been a constant source of inspiration, with flying insects, birds and mammals providing valuable insights on how to get airborne.
Recently, a robotics team at Harvard University developed a method that would allow their insect-size flying robot — dubbed "RoboBee" — to conserve energy midflight, much as bees, bats and birds do.
By attaching a shock-absorbing mount and a patch that conducts electricity, the researchers were able to direct the tiny robot to perch on a variety of surfaces and then take off again. When activated, the electrical charge held RoboBee in place, much like how a balloon will stick to a wall after you rub it against a wool sweater. Terminating the charge enabled the robot to detach from the surface and fly away.
RoboBee is about the size and weight of an actual bee — about 0.004 ounces (100 milligrams) and 0.8 inches (20 millimeters) tall, with a wingspan of…

Advantages of virtual reality in medicine

Image
Virtual reality is used in many areas of healthcare which range from diagnosis, treatment, e.g. surgery, rehab and counselling. It is also used to train the next generation of doctors, paramedics and other medical personnel and has shown a range of benefits from doing so.So what are the advantages of virtual reality in healthcare? There are several which are related to medical/surgical training, preventative medicine, counselling and architectural design of new hospitals and many more.
Let’s start with virtual reality as a means of training healthcare professionals. It is used in medical schools and other similar settings as a means of education and instruction. It enables medical students to acquire knowledge and understanding about the human body by means of interaction within a virtual environment. Virtual Reality Dentistry But virtual reality isn’t only confined to medical schools. Dentistry is another area in which it plays a part. For example, there is a system known as ‘HapTEL’ wh…

Virtual Reality : Early Year

Image
Let’s start with a quick primer on the history of VR.  VR was created in 1965 by Ivan Sutherland – he created the “Ultimate Display”, a device that could overlay wireframe interiors onto a room.  The military was researching and investing in VR’s potential for flight simulation and training.


The VR industry continued to develop over the next couple of decades, but appeal was limited to only the most ambitious engineers and early adapters due to the cost of components, and the computers that powered them.  PALMER LUCKEY AND OCULUS RIFT CHANGE THE GAME Fast-forward 40 years and Palmer Luckey (the inventor of the Oculus Rift) created his first VR prototype at age 18 in his parents basement. He  developed the product that would come to be known as the Oculus Rift. The announcement of the Oculus was followed closely by tech insiders, developers, and early adopters, all of whom had been chomping at the bit to experience this new frontier in VR development. It wasn’t long before heavy-weights l…

Augmented Reality Used for Medical Products

Image
Ivan Sutherland introduced his ultimate display in 1965, he thought about a world existing of real and virtual objects which is presented to the observer through his natural perspective or through his eyes.

Nowadays, Augmented Reality solutions still use hardware interfaces that do not follow most natural form of immersion, e.g. augmented camera views of tablet PCs and any smartphones. In the last few years lot of head worn AR interfaces have been created and released.  One of them is SDKs which is related to head mounted displays which have inspired thousands of developers to create AR worlds for to enhance industrial tasks .Also they make cultural experiences more interactive, attractive and appealing.
It is very difficult to introduce these devices to the medical world, in particular to intraoperative tasks that require high quality standards.  This is certainly a commendable approach, which will happen once the benefit for patient treatment has been proven and usability has reached…

2016 will be a pivotal year for social robots

Image
1,000 Peppers are selling each month from a big-dollar venture between SoftBank, Alibaba and Foxconn; Jibo just raised another $16 million as it prepares to deliver 7,500+ units in Mar/Apr of 2016; and Buddy, Rokid, Sota and many others are poised to deliver similar forms of social robots. These new robots, and the proliferation of mobile robot butlers, guides and kiosks, promise to recognize your voice and face and help you plan your calendar, provide reminders, take pictures of special moments, text, call and videoconference, order fast food, keep watch on your house or office, read recipes, play games, read emotions and interact accordingly, and the list goes on. They are attempting to be analogous to a sharp administrative assistant that knows your schedule, contacts and interests and engages with you about them, helping you stay informed, connected and active. According to a research study by Tractica, annual shipments of consumer robots, a category that includes robotic vacuums…

Smartphone is Getting more smart with Gas sensors

Image
Smartphone is Getting more smartNew things are gonna come in the smartphones. Now smartphones can sense Gases like CO2, ethanol, or nearly any other noxious gas with there new gas sensor( CCS811).  
Working:-  
the very top layer of the chip has a metal-oxide layer (such as tin-oxide for VOCs) with gold contacts beneath it that measure the resistance of the metal oxide. Underneath the gold interconnections is the tiny hot plate that heats the whole assembly, thereby changing the resistance of the top layer in direct proportion to the gas coming in the package (through a hole).
The newest digital version then uses a Silicon Labs 8051 microcontroller to measure the resistance between the gold electrodes and buffer its changes in real time. When it passes a given level, an alarm interrupt is sent to the application processor in the smartphone (or the application processor polls the 8051 periodically to empty its buffer and draw a parts-per-million--PPM--graph of air quality, for instance, …
