How Does Laser Hair Cap Technology Work?

Laser hair caps might be a relatively new concept to most people, but the technology behind these amazing devices has been around for decades. This makes it one of the most effective options for regrowing hair and reversing balding. Understanding Low Level Laser Therapy In order to understand what a laser hair cap is, we …

Israel Deploying Nationwide Laser Anti-Drone and Anti-Mortar System

Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Iron Beam (national laser defense) is designed to intercept close-range drones, rockets and mortars which might not remain in the air long enough for Israel’s current Iron Dome missile defense system to intercept. Rafael Advanced Defense Systems said test data show Iron Beam lasers are blasting away more than 90 percent …

Laser Power Beaming Between Satellites by 2025

The University of Surrey is developing lasers to beam solar power from satellites that are in sunlight to small satellites orbiting which are being eclipsed. The project is part of the £7.4 million national SPRINT (SPace Research and Innovation Network for Technology) program. SPRINT provides unprecedented access to university space expertise and facilities and helps …

ColdQuanta Could Become the Fastest Scaling Quantum Computer Approach

Nextbigfuture interviewed Tom Noel, ColdQuanta’s Director of Quantum Computing and Interim CEO Dan Caruso. ColdQuanta is using neutral atoms instead of trapped ions as the basis for its quantum computers. ColdQuanta is building a functional first system now and believes they will be able to scale to the 1000s of qubits faster than competing approaches. …

Tripling Optical Storage With New Encoding Approach

Purdue University innovators have created technology aimed at replacing Morse code with colored “digital characters” to modernize optical storage. This will allow more data to be stored and for that data to be read at a quicker rate. Rather than using the traditional dots and dashes as commonly used in these technologies, the Purdue innovators …
