Technology update 27 April 2012 5 292
The green revolution is on in Russia: gyroscopic cars, batteries that breathe and motors with their roots in space: the rush is on to find eco-friendly solutions in the auto industry. A new wave of clean car engineering in Russia gets kickstarted by the launch of Moscow's electric charging infrastructure.
On this episode's aviation special, the Tech Up team finds out what's up in the world of aviation at the MAKS airshow. Breakthroughs on a molecular level give Russia's fifth generation stealth fighter huge advantages in the air. A cross between a battery and combustion engine takes aircraft to new heights and a master of illusion evens the odds down on the ground.
On this month's show, we turn up the heat with Moscow's firefighters as they put their latest gear to the test. An electronic glove may mean one less language barrier for us all. An unlikely material helps buildings survive the bumping and grinding of tectonic plates not to mention the trials of time. And despite the robot invasion, we still find the time to indulge in some of Moscow's more cultural pursuits.
In this episode, we learn how airport security technology can be used to put a smile on a girl's face. A radical new drilling machine makes short work of solid granite, opening up new possibilities for oil companies. A design classic still has room for improvement and we learn how to dispose of tyres and improve roads in one fell swoop.
The festive season's over so it's time to focus and hit the road. On this month's show, join us for our mad tea party complete with cool tunes as we learn about the next industrial revolution and its potentially life saving technology.
Get your skates on and tune into Technology update as we check out some of the cool tech used in Europe's largest ice rink. If you thought that 3D films were popular, wait until you see the 360-degree cinema. We also learn how to put an organ on a chip, a robot in a telescope and a mammoth in your hand.
In this episode, we learn about the technology keeping the Moscow Metro rolling, new modelling and surveying techniques make waves in the oil industry and a dream team of robots go places too dangerous for humans. Tune in for all the latest news and innovations here on Technology Update.
This month, we get 2015 off to a flying start! Join us as Russia's next gen heavy-class launcher takes to the skies for the first time. We really push the boat out and visit the world's longest pool and play with models and we check out a future where talking to robots is perfectly natural.
The Russian Health Care Week exhibition shows off some of the latest developments in medical research, while the Bakulev Centre for Cardiovascular Surgery announces that it has successfully implanted a patient with a newly-designed heart valve, Dental Photonics offers innovative dental surgery, and Moscow State University pioneers mitochondrial research with the hopes of stalling the aging process.
We go on tour in Tatarstan where we meet some of Kazan's young innovators in the IT capital. We find out how to bake black wings for composite aircraft and go off-road in a modern day viking but still manage to take some snaps for the album.
Join us in Barcelona this month as we follow a team of Russian students looking for racing glory in the Smartmoto Challenge. Back on home tarmac, we delve into the cloak and dagger history of a Russian cult classic and a sparky ebike pulls away from the pack.
In this edition of Technology Update we take a look at Russia's most sophisticated bridges: one of the newest and the boldest landmarks on the Moscow's skyline, Russia's first man-made bobsleigh run, and the construction of the biggest cable-stayed bridge in the world.
