Technology update 19 August 2011 16 315
St. Petersburg may be best known for its imperial palaces, famous museums, and White Nights, but it is also a growing hub of Russian high-tech. Join us on the fast train to the Northern Capital, and we will take you off the typical tourist map to visit top-class naval navigators, the world’s most powerful neutron-beam reactor, Intel’s Russian innovators, and a new generation of wireless wonders. St. Petersburg lights a whole new way – on Technology Update.
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.
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 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. We also explore the capabilities of heavy-duty conferencing software and learn how interactive e-books are created.
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.
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.
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.
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.
On this month's show, the line between virtual and reality becomes even more blurred and Russia and America join forces to fight cancer. We take the Shaman out for a spin and Peter Scott becomes the cool kid in the class.
