Technology update 30 August 2010 4 24
This month RT's Nick Levy is at the world class race track Hockenheimring in Germany, where students from Russia and around the globe have come to put their self-made speed machines to the test. Apart from Formula 1 races, there are also Formula Student races, in which students from technical universities from around the world design and build their own cars for the races. After days and nights of engineering and putting the cars together, the Moscow automobile and road institute team are exhausted, but the next day is the moment of truth - the day of the races, where it's all up to the drivers and where any small mistake the engineers made could be crucial for the team.
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.
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 of Technology Update, we visit Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. It's the one-stop shop for just about everything in personal-sized tech with most of the industry's big players, investors and gadget gurus present. Here, we take a look at a number of innovations that stretch the limits of mobile technology.

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.
In this episode of Technology Update, a new tractor transmission makes for a smoother ride, Russian scientists conjure up cutting-edge crystals, the EU sets its laser sights on Japan and one of the tech giants comes to town.
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.
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.
In this Technology Update installment; the latest supercomputers need a whole new kind of cooling system, computer memory goes nano and advanced microelectronic technology shapes the next generation of satellite systems.
It's October and that means one thing in Moscow, it's time for Open Innovations. Join us as we explore one of the highlights of the tech calendar. We also learn how one man's waste really is another man's treasure with a machine that not only destroys waste cleanly, but actually produces green energy from it. A promising new cancer treatment is based on biology not chemistry and high-tech specs promise to make navigation easier and safer for the blind and visually impaired.
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.
