Employees of the University of Massachusetts say that the United States intends to use cheap energy sources in the next 15 years. Scientists intend to apply wind and sun to installations. This will make the generation of energy an environmentally friendly process and will save oil, gas, and coal. In the short term, the US will switch to alternative ways of producing fuel for power plants.
Environmentalists have long talked about the need to develop environmentally friendly fuels in order to reduce the negative impact of the industry on others. Experts believe the construction of wind parks and solar panels in the volumes of the whole country is quite feasible. This will require material investment, time and reasonable optimism of engineers. The US will not be able to fully provide itself with renewable energy, 10% will be compensated with backup fuel.

Representatives of the company Acer presented the world's first tablet, which is based on the operating system Chrome OS. The novelty is called Chromebook Tab 10.
The new tablet from the company Acer in addition to the advanced operating system also equipped with fairly advanced technical characteristics. As a display, it was decided to use a matrix with a resolution of 2048x1536 measuring 9.9 inches. In addition, the display device supports the functions of drawing and handwriting input, so complete with the device is a special stylus called Wacom EMR.
The heart of the Chromebook Tab 10 is the six-core processor Rockchip OP1, the main memory of the device is represented by a 32-gigabyte module, and the memory was expanded to 4 gigabytes. Also, the tablet received a main and sensor camera with a resolution of 5 and 2 megapixels respectively. In the US, the gadget will be distributed at an estimated price of $ 329.

Scientists from the US and Poland based on the WorldClim database created an interactive ClimateEx map. With the help of this development it is possible to follow the climate changes of any point of the globe.
Specialist of the College of Science at the University of Cincinnati Tomasz Stepinski and an expert from Poland Pavel Neztel have visualized the process of climate change of the planet in the last half century. To do this, scientists used the WorldClim database. The new interactive map was called ClimateEx. With its help you can track the data from 50 thousand climatic stations scattered around the globe.
Using an interactive map, researchers can study all the critical climate changes and predict the weather of the future. ClimateEx displays regions with extreme weather events, as well as areas that will be affected by them in the coming years. Also with the help of the development it is possible to compare the climate of remote territories.

Robotics engineers from Switzerland have created a whole system that allows to build skeletons of wooden structures. The program is fully automated and does not require management.
The structure of wooden frame structures is a difficult and protracted process that requires not only human hands and accurate measurements of details.
Now in Switzerland, thanks to the engineers of the higher technical school in Zurich, it is possible to build wooden structures using an automated robot system. A pair of huge robotic manipulators independently saws the wooden boards and assemble them into a single structure, making holes for further fastening the parts, which the machine does not know how to do. At the same time, a basic model is created from the very beginning, according to which they will work.
The developers noted that the use of this technique does not require scaffolding or supporting structures. When engineers finish work on this technology, constructing six similar structures, they will be combined in a single two-story building with transparent walls to monitor the operation of robotic manipulators.

Specialists from the Hebrew University have found a way to speed up computers a hundred times. This was made possible by the technology that combines flash memory with photonic circuits.
Modern science knows that photonic devices, microcavities, are not perfect because of the limited frequency of operation. However, combining them with non-volatile flash memory, which is often used in hard disks, can solve this problem and speed up the work of computers.
Physicists from Jerusalem demonstrated the work of integrated flash memory in microcavities in the MONOS structure, consisting of metal, oxide, nitride and silicon. Due to the fact that MONOS can detain a charge in its thin layer, physicists were able to achieve changes in the resonance frequency.
Scientists report that, thanks to their invention, it will be possible to create wireless devices with greater power and faster operation speed. This discovery can be decisive in a world where high technologies are highly valued.
