Researchers At MIT Devleop Edible Batteries

MIT has come up with a technique which allows terminally dim children, begat of stupid parents, to swallow batteries. Apparently year, nearly 4,000 children go to emergency rooms after swallowing button batteries which can cause burns that permanently damage the esophagus, tears in the digestive tract, and in some cases, even removing the kid from the gene pool. Boffins at MIT, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Massachusetts General Hospital have devised a new way to coat batteries with a special...

Fujitsu Improving Haptic Feedback Tablets

Fujitsu Labs have worked out a way to improve vibration feedback when typing on a virtual keyboard. The prototype haptic sensory tablet emits ultrasonic vibrations under the surface of the tablet’s display. The company says that although producing ultrasonic vibrations would generally require a good deal of power, its engineers have come up with a way of shrinking down the tech and allowing a tablet prototype to run its haptic feedback system. Essentially, the vibrations create a layer of high...

Cisco Claims New Wi-Fi Standards Being Stalled

Old Wi-Fi standards are now holding back the newer, faster protocols that followed in their wake, Cisco Systems claims. IEEE 802.11, now available in numerous versions with speeds up to 6.9Gbps and growing, still requires devices and access points to be compatible with technologies that date to the late 1990s. But Cisco said that these older standards are not nearly as efficient. It is calling on the 802.11 Working Group and the Wi-Fi Alliance to find a way to let some wireless gear leave those versions...

Skype Gives Asterisk The Boot

The Internet is buzzing with news that Skype is in the process of giving Asterisk the boot by no longer offering Skype for Asterisk starting in July.  Skype for Asterisk is proprietary software that was developed by Digium with Skype’s approval. The software was unique in that it allowed Asterisk based systems to join Skype’s VoIP Network. We assume this will not negatively impact current users for the next couple of years. We wonder if Microsoft had a hand in killing this deal with Asterisk...
