Kaushik & Mr Rakesh Kumar (ECE)

Could you please tell us your journey from a Post Graduate student @

Loyola College to Chief Marketing Officer (/Chief People Officer) at big

Software Companies to CEO, CallHealth?

To begin with, frankly, if I look back into my life, it was no different from

any other normal guy. I come from a normal middle class family. I have

had my own ups and downs, confused set of thoughts on what to

study, where to study, etc.People around me say that I am a go-getter,

but to be honest I don't plan anything precise. All I knew was whatever

the job you are in, you have to succeed everyday. You can't be

complacent just because you did well yesterday. 'Succeeding in job or

life' should be an integral part of your life. I mean, you'll have to

essentially succeed everyday at work. In order to do that we have to

keep improving in whatever we do. That was one hard lesson I learnt

from my life and I am continuing to do that.

Life sometimes won't give you what you want. I wanted to pursue

mass communication and I didn't get a chance to do it. But I got an

opportunity to do and I took it with both hands and succeeded in flying

colors. Felt slightly bad when I missed the gold medal at my PG with

0.02 difference. I am happy with what I got from life; I never bothered

about how much money I was making or what I was called viz CEO,

CMO, Global Head, etc. I seriously mean it.

The journey was without a definitive end purpose or target or goal, but

was always an effort to do the best of whatever that was given to me

at that point of time. I wanted to be my best at whatever I am doing at

any given point in time.

I am happy that I can do more things with the money I have today, but

material things interests little to me. End of the day, we all end up

having Dal-chawal after all.

What's your take on Organizational objective?

Even when it comes to organization's objectives, you should be never

satisfied with what you can achieve, but you should be always

satisfied with what you get. If you are unhappy and agitated, you

achieve very little. The big play is in seeing the Big Picture. When I was

in HR, we were #13 in the best employer's list. We worked hard to get

to #1. It took 7-8 years to get to #1. In marketing, we wanted be a brand

that everybody should recognize and appreciate; and we got there.

Similarly, CallHealth's objective is to be the world's 1st and best

integrated platform - and we are aiming to get there.

What is the basic idea and purpose of starting CallHealth Services?

In the last two decades, we have seen how technology changes the

way we work, communicate, bank, buy, as well as consume media and

entertainment. Technology has revolutionized the core of the

healthcare industry. We have the best of surgical and diagnostic

equipment. However, the delivery of healthcare services has not kept

pace with this technological advances. CallHealth is aiming to bridge

this gap in the healthcare landscape by using technology.

Callhealth is all about enabling the patient to be at the center of

ecosystem and pull all the services at the convenience of their space

and time. Callhealth is about bringing the last mile connectivity and

everything about health for the convenience of the customer. We are

entering an area where nobody has ever worked before and I hope to

bring dramatic changes. A lot of companies are doing it in bits and

pieces like e-consultation, second opinion, etc. We are planning to

bring all these under one roof.

Kindly let us know about the patient-centric business model @

CallHealth? Is it commercially viable?

Our model integrates all constituents of the healthcare eco-system

(doctors, diagnostics, Medicines, physios, hospitals, Insurance, etc.)

and makes them work in such a way that we provide speed, precision

and results at an affordable price. Consulting a doctor, having

diagnostic tests done, buying medicines, getting medical services like

nursing, physiotherapy and more, is now just a call or click away. Even

for visits to hospitals or imaging/diagnostic centers, CallHealth

provides facilitation services to make the experience easier and


By connecting customers to the entire eco-system, especially where

there are gaps today, we derive better capacity utilization. Hospitals

have labs where the utilization is often less than 60%. Some doctors

are loaded 200% while others are not even at 40%. There is lot of

unused capacity. We want to have greater spread of capacity and

utilization. In doing so, we are able to provide services at a lower cost

and at a reasonable discount to the customer. So, the customer gets it

at a lower cost and we still make money on it. This is not a typical

discount driven; often loss-making, e-commerce model.

In addition, our Differential Diagnosis algorithm helps doctors as a

Clinical Decision Support system to bring greater sharpness to the

diagnosis of the illness / disease. This will help narrow the gaps in

diagnosis that we at times encounter today. Our 'Info aids' tool helps

the doctor to explain the cause of the illness to the patient much better

and that helps to bring about a balanced understanding of the 'causal

factors', for the patient.

How are you going to take these services to the people?

We use hub and spoke model. Hub is centralized area with specialist

doctors, core services, etc. based in tier-1 cities like Hyderabad (taking

homogeneity of language, culture into concern) and spokes are On-

ISSUE 12 JULY 2016

ground services in other cities like Vizag, Ongole, Nellore.

We will gradually replicate to other cities like Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi

and to similar developing markets overseas.

We heard that CallHealth provides single-point solution to all wellness

and healthcare needs? Could you explain?

The end-to-end integrated approach to healthcare enables CallHealth to

provide a one-stop solution for all healthcare needs across a customer's

life span and across the healthcare spectrum – Prevention, Wellness

and Cure. Thus, creating a partnership that is life-long and not

transactional in nature. We brought all components of healthcare under

one roof. We are like Amazon of healthcare for the spread of offerings

with the ease of usage that an Uber provides.

What according to you is disruptive innovation in healthcare? How did

disruptive innovation affect your company and health care system?

In the past, doctor was at the center of ecosystem and the entire health

care eco system was distributed around him / her. The patient was

outside this circle and often had to run between different points in this

eco system to complete a health check-up. In our model, we have

brought the patient to the center and have

placed the entire eco system around him.

That's what technology has enabled us to

do. We have flipped whole table. This is


Who is your real source of inspiration

behind your success?

Frankly, I can't name just one. I have been

inspired by freshers in my team as much

as from peers or people above me. What I

learnt from all those I liked was the

relentless drive and passion for results.

I worked as HR for 20 years and we

became best employers in our industry.

Then, I wanted to challenge myself and

see if I could succeed in other fields. HR

was all about inside-out. In 2007, I moved

to marketing which was completely

outside-in. In 2013, I moved to a highly

complex business role as the consulting

head, where the team helped me double

our revenues in 3 years.

After almost 3 decades in technology

services, I have now decided to provide

leadership in the health care sector.

The inspiration comes from the fact that I disrupt myself continuously

and have to prove to myself that I can succeed.

Currently you may have thousands of employees. What are practices

you follow to retain the best talent?

Currently, we are below 1000 in number.

Our differentiator is that we have a flat organization model where there

is no hierarchy of people; we only have hierarchy of opportunities. At

CallHealth, our Officers are empowered and expected to take

responsibility for a range of areas in their daily routines that are

traditionally considered 'managerial decisions'.

We have brought in a continuous assessment model – not a periodic one

and have digitized most of our internal transactions. Work is still WIP

and we will achieve 100% very soon

Excluding yours, what is your most admired company?

Personally, I love Google. They think brilliantly ahead of the times and

innovate products or services. The few people at Google I have met are

passionate about their company and the way they are building the

products is awesome. I would love CallHealth to bring that culture and

exceed our stakeholder expectations. Apple and Tesla are the other


How are Google different, in your opinion?

They seem to be thinking of doing things that appear almost impossible.

Imagine talking about providing Wi-Fi through the Loon Project! When

we first hear about it, we would probably think how stupid can that be!!

Then we turn around and realize that they have made it into a reality. It is

sheer absurdity of an idea converted into a reality.

CallHealth is on a journey like that.

How would you like your company to be remembered by the people?

Just like Facebook for bringing people together, Google for bringing

information together, we would love to be remembered for bringing the

healthcare ecosystem together.

You must have faced many challenges in your professional life. What

was the toughest one? How could you overcome?

Only time I probably felt stress was during 2009 Satyam episode. It was

period of time where because of the event one's professional credibility

was also questioned. I had to prove them wrong and resurrect myself

and be a part of the team that resurrected the company.

I had a steep fall, but I climbed back. It was all three dimensions -

professional, personal and financial.

Our model integrates all

constituents of the

healthcare eco-system

(doctors, diagnostics,

Medicines, physios,

hospitals, Insurance, etc.)

What are your expectations from an entry

level employee?

I don't give much priority to academic score,

even though it is a nice indicator of student's

performance in academics.

I look for people who challenge and can take

risks. I love people who, when they fail, say

“it is only half time in the game, the next half

time is going to be my game.” (you know,

the outcome of many football games are

changes in the second half!).

I seek game changers. I want the Dhonis of

the world who consistently deliver under

pressure (imagine scoring 23 runs in the last

over to finish off the game - he has done it

often); people with firmness of spirit that

says “I can and will do”.

I don't look for individual heroes -

collaboration is the key. In short, I am

interested in people who are Risk takers,

Can maintain their cool, Have a 'never say

die' attitude & are a pleasure to hang out

with at work.

What are the biggest opportunities for budding engineers in the next

five years?

The world is in midst of digital revolution. We live in a connected world

today. People should leverage this revolution in their areas of study. You

could be a mechanical engineer today, but we are talking about

connected cars. You could be a shoe manufacturer, but we are talking

about shoes that give you multiple health readings.

Bring your analytical and inquisitive blend of mind to use digital

revolution to create opportunities in your own areas of specialization.

If GOD appears and asks you what or whom do you want to be (other

than yourself), what will be your reaction?

I could wish to be as disruptive as Steve Jobs (it takes a lot of guts to say

“I will remove the physical keyboard from your phone”). Even though he

had serious setbacks in life, he bounced back. He has an extraordinary

creative mind, ability to sense the market needs, integrate product ideas

and come out with path-breaking innovation. When the tablet (Apple

Tab) came, many bought it and I know many who didn't know how to

really leverage it. That is the difference.

To be frank, it' not about wanting to be somebody. I would love to have

the risk taking ability of Steve Jobs coupled with the compassion of my

(Blogger at- https://thewanderlustswine.wordpress.com/ )

Switzerland shares a special relation with tunnels and tunnelling. Without

sounding like I repeated myself, I must tell you that they are indeed different

things, 'tunnels' and 'tunnelling'. I shall elaborate about them in just a while.

After completing my masters' studies in Micro Nano Integrated Systems at

Politecnico di Torino, Italy. I found myself at crossroads of what to do next. The

Masters course left me with a micro-nanotech (if I may) hangover and the only

thing I was sure of was wanting to remain with it. So, I took up an internship

opportunity soon after at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL)

in Switzerland and voilà, since then m here.

So coming back to the tunnels. If you followed the news lately, you might have

heard that Switzerland achieved a huge feat. It finished building the world's

longest tunnel at 57 km, the Gotthard base tunnel (WOAH!). But, it doesn't

start there for the Swiss. Back in the 90's they did something a lot cool. Two

researchers at IBM, Zurich, Switzerland invented the scanning 'TUNNELING'

microscope. This machine lets you peak at individual atoms on the surfaces of

materials (double WOAH!). Just imagine a pen, nano-patterned to an atom

sitting at it's tip. Scanning this tip across the surface of samples you read and

build atomic level information of the material. This is possible thanks to

quantum mechanical tunnelling. Quantum physics tells us that there is nonzero

probability that an electron can be on the other side of a potential

barrier that it sees, by 'tunnelling' through it. So with tunnelling of electrons

between the atomic tip and atoms of the material (surface to be studied)

scientists can get a wealth of information.

But this is the system that the IBM greats made. So, what do you do Maneesha?

I work on tunnelling too. And there ends the similarity I share with those Nobel

Prize winning scientists. I work on tunnelling transistors. In a transistor,

current from one region (source) to another (drain) is mediated by a

controlled barrier (channel) that allows or restricts the flow of charge serving

as an electronic separation between source and drain. Hence, transistors can

be thought of as switches which are used to build more complex circuits,

systems and eventually machines. Tunnelling transistors differ from

conventional field effect transistors as the former are based on quantum

mechanical tunnelling of electrons whereas the latter are based on thermal

emission of carriers over a potential barrier. It's enough to understand that

they have a different switching principle. My research work is to explore these

transistors for various applications. Given the sizes at which they are made

(order of nanometers to a couple of microns), they potentially can sense things

of that length scale. These 'things' can be anything from DNA molecules to

hydrogen or other ions potentially building nano-biological/chemical sensors.

So in my doctoral studies you typically see me reading literature from well

since the beginning of time to today in the field, generating ideas of device

designs/architectures, simulating those ideas and fabricating them in a

cleanroom environment. What excites me very much is the entire process.

Seeing how ideas come alive as real world-devices to do useful things is indeed

fascinating. Delve-in, if you like, there is plenty of space for us in this big SMALL

Sri Sujiv Nair

Chief Executive Officer - TASK at Department of Information Technology,

Electronics & Communication. Government of Telangana

Mr Sujiv Nair, at present, is the Chief Executive Officer, TASK

(Telangana Academy for Skill and Knowledge). He has 22 years of

global leadership experience in enabling change, transformation,

governance, leadership development, training & skilling across

Indian, Multinational and Government Organizations. His

knowledge, passion for excellence and the dignified way he deals

with colleagues and vendors makes him an asset to any organization.

Government of Telangana established TASK with the objective of

enhancing skill development among the youth. As TASK embarks on

a journey to enhance the employability quotient of youth in the state

through skill development, the editorial team, consisting of Mr

A.L.Kishore, Associate Professor at BVRIT, Narsapur and Mr Anuraag

Kaushik ( 3 ECE) met up with Sujiv Nair, CEO, TASK, to learn more

about their plans, programs and projects. This interview throws light

on how TASK chalked out a clear roadmap to reach the milestones

with their unique value creation for the academia, the industry and

the students.

How would you describe your journey so far?

My learning continues! My career started at Asian paints, where I used to

be on the shop floor handling production in 3 shifts. I acquired several

academic qualifications while working. During the formative years of my

career, I wanted to become a general manager at 30 and was fortunate to

become a Dy General Manager. Work experience teaches you a lot of

things and you begin to set high standards for yourself. As I moved from

production to operations and then human resources, I thought that I

would retire in HR but divine opportunities knock at your door some times

and I got the opportunity of serving the common man through TASK

(Telangana Academy for Skill and Knowledge).

The areas of your expertise deal with a lot of people. How challenging

is that, considering the diverse nature of the people you deal with?

Diversity has always excited me, if you look at it as something

challenging, it is challenging. If you look at it as something exciting, it

excites you. Suppose you have four different students working on a

problem. Each student comes up with his own solution that is completely

different from the others. A hybrid of all the solutions could be the optimal

solution to the problem. The world is globalizing like never before, sooner

or later we have to work with diverse set of people. By being patient,

empathetic and listening carefully our ideas and creative thinking gets

enhanced. In a nutshell, embracing diversity is key.

What according to you is essential in ready to be employees? Where

do you think they are lagging?

The foremost thing that the current generation students are lagging is the

awareness of the various career opportunities they have. Internet,

technology and media are providing various opportunities to the young

generation. If he or she puts efforts to utilize these opportunities, then

they can be aware of what they have in hand. Next comes technical and

soft skills and most importantly self-esteem.

How important it is to enjoy and have fun at work in the corporate

world full of hustle?

50% percent of it should be fun! Creating an environment filled with fun

makes it productive. When we create an environment filled with fun, our

mood becomes lively and our spirits will be high and by fun I do not mean

cracking jokes. It is all about creating an environment of respect,

recognition & happiness around the work place we are in. Fun is

contagious and keeps us in good spirits.

aims at establishment of Virtual labs. How and in what stipulated

time do you want to

complexity of the


IIIT Hyderabad has

signed a MoU with Telangana Academy for Skill and Knowledge (TASK) to

carry forward the outreach activities of Virtual Labs. Both of us are

working closely to reach out to all engineering colleges in Telangana and

improve the quality of engineering education in these colleges through

the use of Virtual Labs and other technical training programs.

In my opinion, Virtual labs addresses the issue of lack of good laboratory

facilities, as well as trained teachers, by making remote and simulationbased

experimentation possible through the Internet and it was exciting

to partner with IIIT Hyderabad help spread the awareness and usage of

these labs in Engineering colleges both in Urban and Rural areas across


TASK has achieved 90% of its target. Initially all tasks look like a mountain,

the secret is to break it into pieces .When you join all these pieces your

work is done. I believe in keeping things short and simple. For every

initiative launched, we divide the work and put strict timelines to achieve

them and then monitor & evaluate the progress. Then what gets

measured gets done.

How did TASK make a difference in employability and skills

development, since its inception?

The key focus at TASK is to enhance the employability quotient of youth in

the state. TASK has been collaborating with industry to provide skill

based training to the students and make them industry ready.

Our primary focus is on meeting the industry demand with supply of

skilled workforce. We found that along with technical knowledge, a

student also needs to have soft skills at work. Our value proposition is built

around skills. The employability quotient is classified into personal skills,

technology skills and organization skills. TASK has tie-ups with several

corporates Cisco, Samsung, IBM, SAP, Embry Riddle Aeronautical

University, Pratt, DIETY, Hitachi and other organizations and the experts

from these companies train students, thereby preventing the student

from falling prey to callous approach of the coaching centers. We do all

this at highly subsidized costs. We created another skilling program called

'The Professors of Practice', where the soft skills are taught by a person

with experience in corporate in a creative manner. An academician

teaching communication skills is very different from that of a Practitioner.

Tim cook has recently visited Telangana for the establishment of

development office in Hyderabad and there are several other giants

like Amazon coming in .What is role of TASK in setting up standards

and meeting the expectations of companies like Apple?

TASK helped Apple to connect them to the talent pool in Telangana and

conduct a skill pilot to show them the potential talent in Telangana. In life

it is important to practice what is called 'empathetic listening' that helps

you to understand exactly what other person is saying and expecting from

us. When Apple approached us, we tried to understand exactly what they

wanted. Once this was understood 50% of the job was done. Secondly,

Understanding and respecting their culture is important. For example,

Core values are prime for Apple. So, in a nutshell when new people come,

comprehend on what they want and after that you can advise them on

how best their agenda can be taken forward in your culture and state.

What is the most important aspect every HR expert should possess?

The most important objective of a HR professional should be to focus on

the company's greatest resource of all – its employees. Without good

employees, the best business plan and ideas will fail. Also he/she has to

make sure that all employees are treated fairly and equitably and that the

business and employee needs are balanced.

HR has to do many functions like training, recruitment & compensation

and many others, each one has its own importance. The degree of each

function varies from one organization to other. If it is a start-up, then

recruitment is given more importance. If it is an already established

company then importance is given to training. Depending on time, a

smart HR allocates time to each of the mentioned functions on need. In

simple terms, a HR should always be grounded to understand what's

happening in reality. One of the main challenges that any HR faces is

leadership development and finding the right person in the right job. An

effective HR person is a good listener too.

One of the key characteristic of your marvelous career is leadership.

What traits must a leader possess in the 21st century organizations?

I have learnt that respect is recognition of value and creativity enhances

value. Leadership is the process of transforming employee behaviors and

attitudes so that they better align with the organization's mission and

with the employees' individual strengths. True Leadership always

empowers employees at all levels of the organization to exhibit respect for

one another, open communication and pride in their work, and to express

opinions rationally and objectively. The idea is that inspired leadership

leads to a higher level of teamwork, which in turns leads to increased

productivity. True leaders both know and communicate their values

openly with the people they lead, creating an atmosphere of certainty and


For a leader it is important to create a good working environment and find

avenues to recognize when people create value.

Where you draw your inspiration from?

James bond . I admire 007 for many reasons, firstly because of his

creativity and mission accomplishment, Secondly, 007 uses the latest

technologies, that people can't even imagine. Thirdly, his speed and

agility. One of the best ways to find inspiration, solve a problem or stretch

your limits is to actively put yourself outside your comfort zone, which you

find in Bond.

What is your Philosophy of life?

“Happiest people don't have the best of everything but, they just make

the best of everything”. I measure success by the number of hours a

person stays happy in a day.

of Technology, under the aegis of Shri Vishnu Educational Society, organized a

programme called Better Bhimavaram to create awareness amongst the student

community. A panel discussion was organized on 19 March 2016 in B. Seetha Indoor

Auditorium. The discussion covered the entire gamut of issues that need to be

addressed for better Bhimavaram.

Sri Vishnu Educational Society organized a workshop on "Intellectual Learning in

Engineering Applications" to the students of Vishnu Institute of Technology and

Shri Vishnu Engineering College for Women from 25 to 29 April 2016 at Vishnu

Educational Development and Innovation Centre (VEDIC), Hyderabad. 20 III B.Tech.

students of Vishnu Institute of Technology which includes 17 students from CSE

department and 3 students from IT department attended this workshop and learnt

various methods and techniques of Innovative Learning and Self-Assessment

during the workshop.

The students of VIT were divided into nine teams. Each team discussed a topic each,--

Swachh Bhimavaram, Traffic and Crime, e-governance, Legal Awareness, Information

Technology and Digitalization, Affordable Buildings for Poor, Public Health, and Skill

Development and Energy Management. The panel members interacted with the nine

teams with regard to major public issues in and around Bhimavaram. Our Director &

Principal Dr. D. Suryanarayana presided over the program. The Municipal Commissioner

Sri N.V. Nageswara Rao outlined the Skill Development Programme being organized in the

town and called for the support of educational institutions and voluntary organizations.

The opinion that Better Bhimavaram would be possible with the concerted efforts of all

the sections of the society was unanimously expressed.

Technology never

stands still: it's always

changing, adapting and

progressing, and often

times things that

seemed improbable (or

even impossible) one

year can quickly start

becoming possible only

a few short years later.

Wearable computers

seemed like a fanciful

idea only recently, but

now they're pretty much

the next big thing to go

mainstream. The

emergence of the

Oculus Rift could

probably catapult virtual

and augmented reality

into literal reality.

With this in mind,

here's a list of 10

interesting futuristic

technologies that we'll

most probably be seeing

in the near future.

Although these are

mostly still in the very

early stages, they're at

something of a middle

ground. While you won't

see these readily

available everywhere

yet, but at least we now

know that in due time,

they will become actual

products we can see,

touch and utilize.

Without further ado,

here's the list.



Jet Pack



Jet Pack International is making great

strides in jetpack technology H202 and

H202-Z jetpacks. As the name suggests,

both the H202 and H202-Z are hydrogen

peroxide-fuelled jetpacks that will allow

users to fly at up to 77 miles per hour at a

maximum height of 250 feet. So far thought,

the higher-capacity H202-Z is only capable

of a maximum flight length of 33 seconds

and a maximum travel distance of 3,300


The Jet Pack International H202 and H202-Z

are actually currently available, albeit not

commercially: you can assemble the jetpack

yourself, if you have$100,000 lying around.

2 Aero-X



If you're a Star Wars fan, the Aerofex Aero-

X, a real-life equivalent of the Star Wars

speeder bike, is definitely something you'll

want to keep your eyes on. The Aero-X is the

result of more than 15 years of research and

development. Powered by a water-cooled

240 horsepower engine and two large

rotors, the Aero-Xcan hover at an altitude of

12 feet and at speeds of up to 45 miles per

hour power. It can also carry up to 310

pounds. Think of the potential. Also, as a

result of this extended research and

development period, Aerofex claims to have

overcome the dangerous coupling effect

that can arise due to using two rotors,

ensuring that the Aero-X will be safe and

easy to control.

3 a Prosthetics Sense of Touch



In March 2013, Denis Aabo Sorensen had the privilege

of testing a new type of prosthetic hand, created by a

group of European engineers and scientists. Unlike

conventional prosthetics, the new prosthetic hand

connects directly to the remaining nerves in Denis'

upper arm. This means that the "hand" has a sense of

touch and is actually controllable. Blindfolded tests

showed that Denis was indeed able to differentiate

between different items such as a bottle, a baseball

and a mandarin orange. It also could exert different

levels of pressure, allowing Denis to touch, hold or

grab something.

While this prosthetic hand is indeed a great leap

forward, it's still far from ready for widespread use:

the arm required electrodes to be implanted directly

into Sorensen, and tests still need to be carried out to

determine the durability of these electrodes.

Cave 2

Cave2 is a hybrid reality environment that

lets artists, scientists and engineers

become fully immersed in their research.

The Cave2 is a 360° wrap around structure

consisting of 72 LCD panels, a 20-speaker

surround sound system and a 10-camera

optical motion tracking system.

With 3D glasses, scientists and engineers

will actually be able to virtually experience

and move through anything of their

choosing, whether it's the human body or

planets in the solar system. The Cave2

holds an immense amount of potential,

especially for situations involving large

amounts of data requiring visualization.

agents and texturizers to make the food even more appealing.


The Titan Arm is the work of a team from the

University of Pennsylvania, and is a

s t r e n g t h - e n h a n c i n g u p p e r- b o d y

exoskeleton that will help you lift an extra 40

pounds. Granted, it's a far cry from the Power

loader we see – and love – in the Alien films

but the Titan Arm was designed with a more

humble goal in mind.

The Titan Arm is built to help rehabilitate a

person who've suffered serious arm injuries

or strokes as well as provide some extra

strength and protection for anyone who lifts

heavy objects for a living. To keep costs low,

the Titan Arm uses 3D printing techniques

allowing the prototype development costing

to be reduced to 1200.


High Power

Wireless Charging

Wireless charging, up until now, usually means

charging via a pad, rather than via wires and

cables. But if you ask the team from the Korea

Advanced Institute of Science and Technology

wireless charging can also be done a distance


The team recently demonstrated a prototype of a

new Dipole Coil Resonant System (DCRS) that can

wirelessly power devices up to 15 feet away. The

DCRS system achieves this using a magnetic field,

and is apparently powerful enough to charge up to

40 mobile phones, and can even power larger

devices, like a TV. There's no word yet on how soon

we'll be seeing this technology in the real world,

but in the mean time you can check out Cota, a

somewhat similar wireless charging technology

that's coming soon.


Chinese researchers have recently been

looking into the next phase of train

transportation, beyond even Maglev

technology. China and Japan already have

very fast Maglev trains that are capable of

reaching over 260 miles per hour, but the

new next-generation Maglev technology,

dubbed super Maglev, will apparently be

even faster.

Super Maglev is built on the same Maglev

technology, but it encapsulates the train in

a vacuum tube, further reducing air

resistance, allowing for higher, mindboggling

speeds. Researchers claim that

such enclosed-tube Maglev systems could

see trains reaching speeds of up to 1800

miles per hour.


StoreDot Fast



StoreDot, a ground-breaking nanotechnology company,

recently unveiled a prototype for a next-generation

battery that harnesses all their knowledge of

nanotechnology and energy storage technologies.

StoreDot uses bio-organic "nanodots" that have

increased electrode capacitance and electrolyte


The science is a bit complex, but the outcome is simple: as

a result of these nanodots, the battery can be fully

charged in only 30 seconds. The best thing is that, since

StoreDot's nanodots are bio-organic, they're a lot more

environmentally friendly, not to mention power-efficient,

than a lot of other competing nanodot technologies

which often use dangerous metals and chemicals. They're

also apparently cheap to manufacture, so who knows, we

may be seeing super-fast batteries in our smart phones

before too long

international university performance tables to judge world

class universities across all of their core missions - teaching,

research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.

The top universities rankings employ 13 carefully calibrated

performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive

and balanced comparisons available, which are trusted by

students, academics, university leaders, industry and

governments. This year's ranking includes 800 universities

from 70 different countries, compared with the 400

universities from 41 countries in last year's table.

This year's list of the best universities in the world features

147 of the top universities in the US – with 63 American

universities making the top 200 of the list, including the

California Institute of Technology (Caltech) as the world's

number one university, followed by Stanford University in

third place, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

in fifth and Harvard University in sixth. But the US has been

losing its dominance of the tables, as institutions in Europe

improve their performance, including those in the UK,

Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland
