Now, charge your cellphones with puddle of water
.
Low on battery? Give your cellphone some water!
Swedish researchers have developedthe world's first water-activated charger that can power your cellphone using just a puddle of ordinary water.
Based on micro fuel cell technology developed at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, the MyFC PowerTrekk uses ordinary water to extend battery life for devices of up to 3 watts.
Anders Lundblad, KTH researcher andfounder of MyFC, says that the device can be powered by fresh or seawater. The water need not be completely clean.
"Our invention has great potential to accelerate social development in emerging markets," Lundblad said.
"There are large areas that lack electricity, while mobile phones fulfilmore and more vital functions, such as access to weather information or electronic payment," he said.
A USB connector attaches the compact PowerTrekk charger to the device. When plain water is poured onto a small recyclable metal disc inside the unit, hydrogen gas is released and combines with oxygen to convert chemical energy into electrical energy.
The resulting charge is enough to power an iPhone to between 25 and 100 per cent of its battery capacity.
Lundblad says the business vision behind MyFC is to commercialise fuel cell technology and contribute to the development of environmental technology.
He says the charger is the first step toward building fuel cells in laptops.
"The launch of our charger is a strategic move to gain wide acceptance of fuel cells throughout society. Our chargers may be considered expensive now; but in thelonger term, as they reach a mass market, they would go down in price," he said.
Fuel cells can already be found in electric cars, trucks and buses, and backup electrical power supply systems for hospitals and co-generation plants.
The process by which fuel cells generate electricity is considered to be safe and environmentally-friendly, and the only by-product is water vapour. The fuel cell system is passive and has no fans or pumps.
.
Lundblad says that fuel cell chargers are faster and more reliable than solar chargers. The main target groups for MyFC PowerTrekk are those who travel or live in remote areas of the world, outdoor enthusiasts and aid workers, he says.
The charger is both a fuel cell and a portable battery, providing a direct power source as well as a storage buffer for the fuel.
MyFC plans to open an on-line shop for its MyFC PowerTrekk product. Thecompany has already sold the technology to users in China, Japan, the US and much of Europe.

BlackBerry Q10 review: the best keyboard phone.
.

.
The Q10 is the flagship BlackBerry deserves and the best phone with a keyboard on the market, writes MattWarman
Ask any BlackBerry user why they like their phone, and the answer’s almost always the same: it’s the keyboard. Even Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google , says it’s the physical keys that draw him to the Canadian brand.
And no device has mattered more to any phone company than the BlackBerry Q10. It’s the first from the manufacturer formerly known as RIM to use both the new version of its software, BB10, first seen on the Z10, and also to feature a physical keyboard. That means there are two huge advantages: its small screen drains the battery a little less and means it lasts longer; and the keyboard makes typing the BlackBerry way possible again. Both of these are hugely important to the target market of business people, and both are serious successes.
So now there are all the advantages of a modern operating system, from easy web browsing, a growing library of apps and the famed BlackBerry email system. Plus there are the new ideas of the BlackBerry Hub, where all your emails and messages live in one place, and BlackBerry Balance, which easily separates Work and Personal life, even changing the screen colour to differentiate the two.
But there are also all the advantagesof a BlackBerry keyboard, now augmented by 'Instant Actions' – start typing TW and you’re straight into a tweet, press a key and you caneasily go straight to the top or bottom of your inbox. The removal ofthe Bold's trackpad means the keyboard feels to me like the best BlackBerry has ever made, and it also makes room for a larger screen.
Is any of this a revolution for smartphones? No – but it’s the first time that BlackBerry aficionados can have the operating system they love and the keyboard they crave. Nokia recently teased that it would get back into the keyboard game with its Windows Phones, but it’s hard to deny that this is an area where BlackBerry’s advantage is huge. Added to that, the Q10 now uses a clever cursor that offers a circle around it and lets you tap on one side or the other to move the cursor a single place left or right. It’s not a radical new idea, but it’s effective attention to detail that gets the mostout of a touchscreen as well as the keyboard.
The same is true for the improvement of context-aware menus: this means different functions are available in different applications, and copy and paste is almost always more accessible. The 1.5Ghz processor is ample for all these improvements, the 16GB storage is likely to be plenty for mostusers and 4G, currently available only on EE, is a huge boon too.
And on the same theme, as a device the Q10 is remarkably solid: a slightly rubberised back makes it feel genuinely premium, while the small size makes it attractive. The screen, at 3.1”is small, but it’s not so small as to feel crammed and unlike a full touchscreen it’s never taken upwith a keyboard. So the useable area is often effectively greater. Predictive text suggestions take up aline on the bottom that users simply tap to choose a word.
Is the camera on the Q10 the best on the market? No, that’s probably the S4. Is the range of apps sufficient to rival Apple, Google or even Microsoft? No. But is that why users will hanker after a Q10? Probably not. So if a great keyboard is your main requirement, as it is for many users of all ages, the Q10 is the device you should buy. It’s the best of its kind on the market – BlackBerry remains king of the keyboard. Let's hope apps will come later.

Friends next 10 years tak new type of mobiles market mein honge aur samsung may be is maidan mein pehla number le jaye
New mobiles jo apke mind k zariye control honge.
Ye na mumkin ni hy q k recently NASA, USA, U.K, mein hone wali research aur phr japan k bnaye gaye ek mind controler system and device jo apke sar pe kisi headphone ki tra lag jati hy in se is bat ka imkan b paida kr dia hy k mobiles ko b mind se control kiya ja skta hy
Here is details .
.
Samsung researching brain-controlled devices
.
Samsung is reportedly spending  R&D money on developings ways to control a phone by the human brain.
According to MIT Technology Review , Samsung's Emerging Technology Lab is collaborating with Roozbeh Jafari, assistant professor of electrical engineering at the University of Texas, Dallas, on the early-stage research.
This involves placing a cap"studded with EEG-monitoring electrodes" atop the head of a convenient person, who then concentrates on an onscreen icon blinking at a particular rate.If the person concentrates hard enough, they can launch and interact with software.
While Samsung indicated that mind-controlled mobile devices are quite a way off, if they ever appear in a market-ready form at all, it could be the next step in controlling a mobile gadget.
After all, a fifteen years ago theywould say that you were mad if you thought it possible to use voice, touch, gesture, and eye movement to control and interact with mobile devices.
Brain research has been experimenting with lots of potentially new devises lately. Researchers at Duke University, the Edmond and Lila Safra International Institute for Neuroscience of Natal in Brazil, and the Neoscience Research Institute at Beijing's Peking University implanted rats with sets of micro-electrodes in the brains. This allowed for the real-time transfer of what the researchers termed"behaviourally meaningful sensorimotor information" between two rats separated by thousands of miles.
This means that multiple brains could be linked into a "net" that could facilitate the exchange of information over long distances.

PORTABLE GAMES CONSOLE GAMESTICK SET TO LAUNCH

While it may seem that all gaming eyes are on what is next from the likes of Microsoft and Sony in the console war, there are in fact some smaller new players hoping to gain a passionate following of their own.

The Gamestick, developed by British firm Playjam, is a portable games console based on Google Android's mobile operating system.
The core hardware is contained in a small stick that can be plugged into the HD socket on any modern television.
The project was funded via Kickstarter, with $647,658 (£427,750) raised by more than 5,000 backers.
However, some of those early supporters were left disappointed after the company announced the product would be delayed due to higher-than-expected demand.
Gamestick also has to compete with Ouya, another Kickstarter-funded console, which is already being shipped to early backers.
Playjam said it was victim of "the success we have created" - but it is now taking pre-orders via UK retailer Game for release on 5 July.
Anthony Johnson, chief marketing officer of Playjam, spoke to BBC technology reporter Dave Lee.

Whats New? Nokia X A110 Normandy - Nokia's first android phone.
After the Microsoft take over, Things are getting hotter. Presenting theNokia X, Finnish giant's very 1st Android smartphone. External design and looks are pretty much similar to the already applauded Lumia family, with poly-carbonated shells in bright colours but Nokia's X has got 4.4.2 KitKat inside, the latest of Android OS rather than Windows Mobile. Nokia Normany AKA X A110's full specs are not a mystery anymore, a solid build, packing a 1GHz Dual-Core processor under the hood. Bundled with an impressive 4 inches TFT Capacitive display, X by Nokia supports a WVGA resolution of of just 480 x 854 pixels. Other features include a 5 megapixel Camera, 512MB of RAM and an extendable memory card slot, supporting microSD cards up to 32 GB. if you are thinking that Nokia X's specs are strikingly reminiscent of Nokia Lumia 520? You might be right but in contrast, Nokia X A110 is a Dual-SIM and runs on the latest Android OS. Having a 1500mAh battery, 3G network support is not yet confirmed but it's for sure that the Android experience on X will not be the same as you are used to experience on other brands. Considering a tweaked android OS providing a windows similar look and feel, Nokia will incorporate it's own App store instead of Google Play. The same goes for the Maps as Nokia X will be featuring it's own Nokia Maps instead of Google.
