    The Increasing Role of Cybersecurity in the Future

    The Increasing Role of Cybersecurity in the Future

    Today, we judge about cybersecurity measures such as VPNs or firewalls as solutions to specifically protect our data traffic and privacy online. This is not to be underestimated – during the last decade or two much of our life has migrated online. Here fall our online financial transactions (online banking, shopping), our one to one communication (text/audio/video) and the constantly updated virtual images of ourselves in the social media circle, as well as many other aspects that present interest for marketers, governments, criminals, etc. People have resorted to VPN providers such as TorGuard to secure their online activities. They might be different in many aspects but virtually all of these offer one key security feature - encryption of all web traffic and hiding of the IP address.

    Here Come the Tricorders

    Despite advances in medicine, access to medical care remains an obstacle for many. Cost, transportation, and even the availability of healthcare are all barriers preventing many from getting the care they need. But what if there was a device that could provide medical care almost anywhere on the planet or even off it?

    The Coolest Futuristic Guns That Actually Exist

    When you hear about cool and futuristic guns your first thoughts are probably about science fiction movies where these guns couldn't possibly exist. Well, you'd be surprised to know that some of these futuristic weapons do in fact exist. While gun control is a hotly debated argument in the United States, a vast majority of the weapons featured here are for military use only.

    The Comfort of Dreams

    Hugo sat in the waiting room, waiting. The walls were peach coloured, the floor shone, pot plants occupied strategic corners. On a television mounted on the wall a video played on a loop. He watched it for the fifth time.

    Nanotechnology

    Nanotechnology

    "Why can't we write all the 24 volumes of the Encyclopedia Britannica on the head of a pin?" This question raised by the great scientist Richard Feynman became the cradle for a revolutionary idea — the technology of the future — nanotechnology. It is the study and control of matter at the nano scale, rearranging atoms and molecules. Nanotechnology has made marvelous contributions in many diverse fields, ranging from computer science to medical science. Nanotechnology is a wonderful new technology in which scientists rearrange atoms and molecules of matter to nano specifications. Or, to put it differently, the use and control of tiny matter is called nanotechnology. The time matter is referred to as nano particles. These particles are measured in nano meters. Matter at the nano scale has different properties from the same matter in bulk form. In modern times, nanotechnology has become increasingly important. It has many uses from developing sports equipment to medical applications and is a faster, cheaper, and a better technology for use in many applications.
