AN INCREDIBLE BUS- MARINA CÓRDOBA

A Chinese company has built a huge elevated bus that will not stop traffic jams, since it works through a rail system that will allow you to move over private cars, CCTV reported the government chain.

Model Transit Bus High  was presented to miniature scale in the nineteenth International Exhibition of High Technology Beijing, where visitors could see a tiny TEB running, according to the source.

This type of bus moves through rails which are situated at a distance from each of two lanes for cars: at a considerable height of the apparatus body rises -under which have room to move two rows supported by two vehicle- walls fitted into the rails. The large space under the body of the bus allows cars to move under the machine, or if there is traffic jams- the bus the advance to them

According to data from hi-tech company offered to CCTV, the public transport would have a capacity of 1,200 people per unit. It also ensures that the installation time is one year and will begin construction of the first of these devices later this year in the city of Qinhuangdao (northeastern province of Hebei).

The TEB would be composed of 4 wagons chained with a total length of between 58 and 62 meters, a height of between 4.5 and 4.7 meters and a width of 7.8 meters. The lower space vehicles which would have a height of between 2.1 and 2.2 meters. Undoubtedly, an invention that will not go unnoticed.



SUPER BLOO - ELENA CARRANZA

Today I want to show you a very good way to learn and have fun: videogames!! For children, playing videogames is one of the most popular activities to do when they are bored. That's why I want to present you a very good example of a videogame which was created by an ex-pupil of our school (Nuestra  Señora del Prado, Marianistas)  and two more university students.
Super Bloo is a game which consists on change your shape to liquid, solid, or gas  (remember you are a water drop) to rescue and save your family. Their authors, like I said before, are three students of the  second course in the university Camilo José Cela, U-tad. One of them is my sister, Raquel Carranza, who is studying interactive products designe. She did all the stages and characters of the game. The other two students are Alejandro Román and Víctor Rodríguez, two young programmers with too much ambition. Their group name is Q-ARTZ studios.
Their first intention of creating Super Bloo was to participate in the Three Headed Monkey Awards  (#3HMA) but they never thought that they might stay in a good position beacause there were professionals  who finished their studies; THEY WERE FINALISTS! The final was celebrated the last Friday, 20 of May in Barcelona. Unfortunately, they didn't win but they remained second in a videogame trivial. Now, they are so happy beacause of the experience. Like my sister said: It's great to know that you really are good in what you like, and this competition has demonstrated us that we can do what we propose to ourselves.

New AI set to give Siri a massive improvement- María Cabanes.

New technology obtained from Apple’s acquisition of VocalIQ last year is poised to drastically improve Siri’s search capabilities, Business Insider reports. One unnamed source said VocalIQ’s AI was able to answer complex questions like, “Find a nearby Chinese restaurant with open parking and Wi-Fi that’s kid-friendly,” 90 percent of the time, greatly improving on the 20 percent averaged by Google Now, Siri and Cortana.

What’s more, VocalIQ’s AI remembers context forever. With the example listed above, saying, “Find me a Mexican restaurant instead,” will change the style of restaurant while still remembering the parking and Wi-Fi parameters mentioned in the first request. VocalIQ was previously working on automotive applications for it’s technology, and the AI’s proficiency is expected to be most useful in the car, where eliminating the need to look at a screen for confirmation is of paramount importance. Apple declined to comment, so how and when VocalIQ’s improvements will make their way into Siri is still an open question.

A NEW BATTERY- MARINA CÓRDOBA

The short battery life is the number one complaint when it comes to smartphones and laptops. As cordless tools , having to ' bind us ' to the current seems a nuisance. And while researchers seem to try to advance the field of wireless charging rather than extend the durability of these .

But researchers at the University of California have invented a battery base gold nanowires that can be recharged hundreds of miles times. A significant leap towards a replacement battery that is not required.

The nanowires are perfect for storage and electrical transmission. highly conductive and much thinner than a human hair, which can be stacked to provide a large surface area for electron transfer. Unfortunately, the nanowires are very fragile and are not very friendly of charge-discharge cycles.

DON'T YOU EVER STOP TO THINK ABOUT THE "HEALTH" OF OUR PLANET?- RICARDO GARCIA

Nowadays, our planet has some problems that can have several consecuences in the future. One of them is globlal warming.

Global warming is already having significant and harmful effects on our communities, our health, and our climate. Sea level rise is accelerating. The number of large wildfires is growing. Dangerous heat waves are becoming more common. Extreme storm events are increasing in many areas. More severe droughts are occurring in others.

An autonomous drone flying at 70km / h and is able to overcome obstacles-Marina Córdoba

Darpa get moving an aircraft  from harsh environments in a project designed to assist in rescue operations

Autonomous and real-Agency DARPA Advanced Research Projects Defense USA-  has been tested with good result with a drone able to target autonomously at a speed of 70 Km / h
Project leaders say such technologies may be "particularly useful" to address the urgent need for security
To allow the drones can quickly go through a maze of rooms, stairs, walkways and other obstacles without the need for a remote pilot. The goal is that in the future these devices are able to avoid numerous objects inside indoor complexes can disrupt communication with external independent operators communication with external operators and even without relying on GPS. The speed, however, will be reduced when it exceeds
