Technology update 08 December 2015 121
On this month's show, we hit the road with a new navigation system that puts augmented reality into the driving seat. Away from the bright lights of Moscow, the next industrial revolution is brewing in the deceptively quiet town of Zelenograd. Medical breakthroughs mean lifesaving tissue and organs may soon be available on demand and everyone's invited to our mad tea party with a modern twist.
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 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.
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.
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.
12 countries team up to spend over 1 billion euros to build the most powerful X-ray machine on the planet in a race to shine a light on some of the mysteries of the micro universe. To find out the hows and whys, we travel to the land of the Hamburger, tune in to this month's show as we get to the heart of the matter.
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 make the most of the sun with Ryazan's solar regatta team. Russia's trams and metro get a facelift in Ekaterinburg. Science flourishes in Tomsk as a versatile new compound promises to make life on the farm a little easier and a new app from IT company Parallels combines the power of a desktop with the portability of a smartphone.
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.
Distant space travel is a dream that requires never-ending research, incredible technology, and an imagination to match. But at top Russian institutes, that dream is inching closer to reality. Beyond orbit – on Technology Update.
