Technology update 24 June 2011 5 72
Three time zones and some 3,000km from Russia's capital, a city of students and scientists hosts a major annual innovation forum. And it doesn't stop there – a cluster of cutting-edge businesses is building around a tech-targeted Special Economic Zone. Microelectronics are reinventing radar systems and building the backbone for Russia's nationwide 4G network. Miracle materials filter drinking water and electro-statically treat antibiotic-resistant infections. In the automotive industry, Tomsk teams are readying rubber for the next generation of green tires and making breakthroughs in gearing for the hybrid Yo-Mobile. You just might be playing this video with a codec coined by the city's world-class programmers.
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.
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.
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.
This episode of Technology Update is dedicated to innovations in medicine: from laser scalpels to a search for the ‘fountain of youth’. You will learn about the evolution of artificial heart valves and the latest developments in this area; discover how state of the art lasers help dentists in their work and find out about what advances have been made in the field of extending human life and youth.
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.
Russia celebrated Cosmonauts' Day on 12 April in honour of Yury Gagarin's historic flight in space, so we wanted to get into the spirit of things and see what's changed since then. On this month's cosmic special, Russia's latest space capsule promises to make spaceflight more comfortable than ever. We learn how solar wind helps us tune into our favourite show on the old wireless and a ray gun represents the latest in cutting-edge technology.
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.
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.
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.
