The year 2016 proved to be hilarious with certain jaw dropping inventions. Handful of such inventions are mentioned below-
1. Incredibly Fast Tesla Model S
Known to be the fastest and the safest car, Tasla’s model S is the most exhilarating sedan on the road. This seven seater family car is pondered to be so fast apart from being electric and this mesmerises its customers. The impressive and unparalleled performance of model S is derived from its Autopilot capabilities and pick up speed from 0 to 60 mph in as little as 2.5 seconds.
Only LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder challenges Tesla that too with a seating capacity of just two.
2. Modified ‘RearVision’ Camera and App
Backup cameras create a back vision for the driver who cant turn to look the cars behind. To prevent the accidents, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has made it mandatory to have standard backup cameras with all model-year-2019 cars. The modified version of this pristine wireless back camera engages your smartphone as its display. With the help of WiFi or Bluetooth for connection, the new backup camera is dubbed with Rear Vision.
3. Batteryless ‘Octobot’ with a touch of Soft and Rubbery
The upto minute robot known as ‘Octobot’ came in view because of its rubbery touch n soft parts. The most amazing part is that it doesn’t require any kind of wiring or batteries. Liquid fuel keeps it working. According to a new study, soft robots can easily sense their surroundings and communicate with it as they tend to adapt to it quickly as compared to rigid machines.
Rigid robots tend to be secured from bumps, scrapes, twists and other natural falls because of its rigid parts. Hard parts stop them squirm from past obstacles therefore scientists are designing soft and robbery robots inspired by octopuses, starfish and worms.
4. New Laser Created from Jellyfish’s Fluorescent Proteins
It has been evolved that the Fluorescent proteins from jellyfish have been researched and used as a laser for the first time in history. The so called polarisation lasers have been evolved to be far more efficient and compact than conventional ones. Notwithstanding with it, these lasers can be researched in quantum physics and optical computing for enhancement in technology.
In yesteryear’s, the inefficient inorganic semiconductors used as polarisation lasers was supposed to be cooled at very low temperatures. Moreover, the organic electronics materials used though worked at room temperature but needed to be operated by pico second (one-trillionth of a second) pulses of light.
5. Uber Rolls Out First Driver-less Cars
Uber is planning to roll out its first self driving cars. The advancement in this field is not yet fully executed but supposed to be launched soon. With the help of dozen of sensors, cameras, lasers and GPS components, this car will be soon seen on streets (with not completely robotised model but a human driver on board to control necessary situations)
With an estimation of 100 self driving vehicles, Uber will launch them by the end of the year.
