    The Coolest Futuristic Guns That Actually Exist

    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

    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.

    On June 23, 2017, a slew of Sprite spacecraft had a successful launch into orbit. But, it was more than just a trip to Earth's orbit, it was the first step into a new kind of space mission, one that promises to take us farther, faster than ever before.

    Love and Robots

    This weekend I celebrated the successful completion of my first-ever Arduino-powered project, a dance costume sleeve that changes colour as the dancer moves. This weekend I also found out that the Afghani competitors in this year's FIRST Global robotics competition, a team of six young women, were at last granted permission to enter the United States in order to join their robot for the competition.

    Exeshell

    When does a human cease to be human through the amalgamation of mechanic and technological hardware? Does the ultimate convergence of these things make my brain nothing but software.
