Supercomputer
Somedays ago I wrote about a chinesse supercomputer, the Tianhe-1A that was proclaimed the most fast on the world for achieve the most hight position of the Top 500 list. Now, an executive, provider of high performance technology, in the supercomputation conference of the 2010, celebrated in New Orleans, give me the reason saying that using together 100.000 smartphones with Android that number can be superated. There are a lot of people that is realizing that the Top 500 doesn't use the best way to measure the performance. Follow discovering "The list of Top 500 supercomputers is incorrect"

Cube of a multidimensional query
The data warehouses or multidimensional databases, are a kind of technology that has constant grow of use in the enterprises in the last years. This isn't strange, because with the techniques of data mining, the enterprises can predict the future, something very important to take decision. Do you want to know how?

inkjet cartridge refill

Due to the expensive that are the ink cartridges of the inkjet printers, surely a lot of you would think that the composition of the ink must be something as human blood, alcohol and petroleum.

Supercomputer Tianher-1A
Its name is Tianhe-1A, is located in Tianjin (China) and can execute 2.507 petaflops, that is equivalent to 2.507.000.000.000.000.000 floating point operations per second. Is, therefore, the computer that execute more operations with decimals per second, this doesn't implies that is the more fast in the world, as others say, but is the more fast making this kind of operations.

Swarm robots, Kilobot
The previous post was about robots with body inspired by animals, so that in this I'm going to talk about robots with intelligence inspired in the nature. This are a lot of more interesting, because its programming, unlike to the robots of the prior post, is more related with the artificial intelligence than with the physics.
