Marital infidelity? Fix it with a bug

ottobre 14, 2010 Technology No Commenti

It happened to all of us, or at least most of us, to have doubts about the reliability of their spouses, perhaps because of odd behavior, suspicious phone calls or unexpected absences. Often it can happen, fortunately, that such fears will prove unfounded, but this is not always the case.

To avoid sleepless nights and endless self-questioning, and to be reassured on the stability of your relationship, technology provides us with the bugs or hidden microphones, invaluable tools to solve cases of marital infidelity silently, unobtrusively and with maximum efficiency.

In fact, by connecting a bug to your home phone line, you can easily listen to conversations without the parties being aware. In addition, thanks to items such as GSM bugs, you can listen to these conversations in real time, even if you are on the other side of the world.

The bug, in fact, contains a SIM card just like the one of an ordinary mobile phone, and can be set to start operating as soon as the telephone handset is lifted. At that point, via the SIM card, it will automatically call your phone, enabling you to listen to what happens on the home phone, in a discreet and unnoticeable way.

The GSM bugs can be remotely programmed via SMS, and can be configured to suit your surveillance needs, to ensure absolute control of the situation. Power is supplied by connecting the cable directly into the mains, to operate continuously.

By using a hidden listening device, you can determine whether your fears are well founded or not, and solve the problem one way or another. For more details on the various types of bugs and their operation, you should contact Endoacustica.

Military security and sturdiness for USB drives

ottobre 14, 2010 Technology No Commenti

One of the latest developments in the field of data security, when files and documents are traveling on a small USB drive, comes from Japan, where Adata has just presented its last product for data storage, which has military-grade specifications in terms of protection and security of the files it stores.

This drive has been dubbed S007, with a nod to dear old James Bond and the gadgets you can see in his movies; just like the super spy in the movies, this USB drive is extremely difficult to defeat, at least for any hackers or whoever should find a lost one and wants to take a look into it. It is also shock resistant and waterproof, making it suitable for use in the field and in action, when the situation becomes dangerous, bullets fly and you have to get dirty if you want to complete your mission.

Also, when it comes to items suitable for military use, one must also take into account not only strength, but also data protection. From this point of view, the S007 drive is compatible with the most advanced military standards, in terms of encoding used for the encryption.

The data is also transferred quickly through the USB 2.0 protocol, and thanks to its OS To Go feature, you can launch Windows 7 on the computer you connect it to, without installation and without having to use the original DVD.

The cost and date of launch of the S007 have not yet been specified, guess we will just have to wait and, as good secret agents, keep eyes and ears open!

Biometric identity verification… through your ears!

ottobre 14, 2010 Technology No Commenti

With the advancement of biometric technologies for identification, the traditional method of ID-ing individuals by fingerprints could soon be obsolete, and our identity could be verified through our ears!

In fact, according to a team from the University of Southampton in the UK, every human being has different ears, unique in the world, and therefore they can be used as an identification method.
Moreover, unlike other biometric identification methods, their characteristics remain unchanged along the entire life of a human.

On the other hand, fingerprints may change due to a cut or burn, and therefore would not be comparable with a previous scan, while facial recognition systems would not be able to recognize the face of an elderly person if the stored image belongs to the same person when he or she was young.

The British University team created a software that can capture the biometric image of an ear, adding it to an identity verification database of the photographed subjects. This software is based on a technology that accurately measures the internal structures of the ear; that during the testing phase, it has shown a reliability of 99 percent.

The next step is to use it in real life situations, and more specifically as a form of identification at British airports; Stansted airport is already operating a biometric identification system with facial recognition, whose features were fine-tuned over the course of two years of use. Along with the reliability already proven, identification through biometric photos of the ear also has an advantage for the people being identified.

In fact, if for example for retinal identification, the person must be standing near a scanner that collects the image of their iris, this has disadvantages for the elderly or disabled. Instead, the software developed at Southampton gives the opportunity to collect the image with a special camera that can be used easily even on people with disabilities who can not stand or walk.

Tracking down pets, kids and objects … via radio!

ottobre 13, 2010 Technology No Commenti

Anyone who has children or pets, or often both, at home, knows that it is difficult, if not impossible, to curb their curiosity, which pushes them to take a look around, not only in hidden corners of the house, but also outside, looking for something to play with; in such cases, it may be difficult to locate them immediately.

On the other hand, those who work at night and come back home tired, on the next morning may not be able to remember where they parked the car, or maybe they can not find the keys because they left them inside their coat, inside a drawer and so on.

For these two types of requirements, so different but so similar, technology comes to the rescue with a device that allows us to track pets, children, lost items and more.

In fact, thanks to a radio frequency locator, you can track down the location of the object or person you are looking for. The system consists of a small transmitter and a receiver.
The transmitter is mounted on some kind of bracelet, which a child can wear on his wrist, or you can place on a pet’s neck, or leave inside your car; when the main unit starts the search, the bracelet, with its signal, will guide you in the right direction, allowing you to find what you are looking for

The tracker, with an operating range of up to 5 km, is a valuable tool for all those situations where you lose sight of someone or something, and it is vital to find it immediately. For more details on the various object tracking options available on the market, please visit the Endoacustica website.

Remote surveillance with a grain of sand

ottobre 13, 2010 Technology No Commenti

The Israeli Defense Ministry, which for obvious reasons has always been at the forefront of research applied to defense and surveillance, has created the world’s smallest gyroscope, roughly the size of a grain of sand.
Despite its microscopic size that makes it absolutely invisible, it is so sensitive that it can provide accurate tracking of its position, and that of who unknowingly takes it along.

Thanks to the collaboration of scientists from the University of Tel Aviv, who developed it from a technology very similar to what is being used for sensors mounted on aircraft and ships. Everything has been miniaturized to the maximum, without losing anything in terms of accuracy. The gyroscope is teamed up with a standard GPS sensor so as to establish its exact location.

At the basis of this new gyroscope, there are microscopic laser semiconductor particles. When the gyroscope rotates (for example when mounted on a mobile phone), the light emitted by the lasers changes imperceptibly in terms of intensity and wavelength. By measuring these differences, the gyroscope is therefore able to measure the rotation, and any movement.

Therefore, combining this sensitivity to that of a GPS sensor, you can determine its user’s location with greater precision than it can be achieved now, especially in areas where GPS signal may have difficulty reaching you, such as in a narrow street in the city between two tall buildings.

Obviously, remote surveillance is only one of the possible applications of this technology, especially if the researchers manage to miniaturize the GPS sensors in the same way.

Long distance listening, without being noticed

ottobre 5, 2010 Technology No Commenti

How many times have we seen two people, whether friends or perfect strangers, engaged in a conversation, at a distance from which we could not hear what they were saying, and wanted to be able to hear it without being exposed? Of course, those who have found themselves in these situations, have mostly been left with nothing and could not listen.

But now, thanks to audio technology, long distance listening of conversations of your neighbors, colleagues, or family members, or even collecting evidence of industrial espionage or of a possible marital infidelity, has become much easier, especially if you use a directional microphone or a laser microphone.

Through the use of microphones of this kind, with their high sensitivity features and characteristics, it is possible to listen to conversations within a range between about ten meters and more than a mile! By hiding in a car behind a fence, and pointing the microphone in its direction, you can easily listen to what the people behind it are talking about.

Actually, you can even easily hear what goes on behind a closed window, thanks to a directional laser microphone. In fact, by pointing the invisible laser beam on a window, the beam will read the vibrations on the glass caused by voices inside the room behind the closed window, and transmit them to a decoder located at a safe distance, which reads them, transforming vibrations into human voice.

Be it to listen to your neighbors or to gather evidence against dangerous criminals, from a distance of a few meters up to more than one kilometer, a highly sensitive directional microphone allows you to listen to everything!

To find out in detail how long range microphones are working, and to discover the endless possibilities of application, you can visit the Endoacustica website and contact our experts for personalized advice.

The first plane with no flaps is an unmanned plane

ottobre 5, 2010 Technology No Commenti

BAE Systems has just made history of aviation, with the first ever flight of an aircraft not fitted with flaps on its wings. In fact, this unmanned aircraft, or UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), called DEMON, instead of flaps and ailerons, resorts to the use of controlled air jets to move upward or downward while in the air.

Normally, the wings of a conventional aircraft are equipped with moving parts (the flaps) in the back, which are opened and extended backwards and downwards during takeoff and landing. This changes the shape of the wing, and air must follow a different path to travel around the wing itself, creating a lift.

The Demon UAV, instead, achieves the same result via controlled air jets, which alter the course of the air near the wings, instead of modifying the shape of the wing itself. Sensors mounted on the tips are used to continuously monitor the air flow and to change the direction of the air jets.

According to experts, this could make flying much easier, due to lack of moving parts that could potentially get stuck. In addition, a plane with a profile like that leaves a smaller radar footprint, with easily imaginable advantages for stealth-mode flights, which makes these UAVs particularly suitable for use in reconnaissance missions behind enemy lines.

Demon is in its experimental stage and is still not entirely autonomous, but once then tests are successfully completed, it will operate independently from any human control from the ground, except for setting up the mission coordinates and mounting the necessary equipment to carry it out.
Although this is a prototype, its features have sparked a great interest in aviation, because in a not too distant future, the solutions used for this UAV could also become commonplace in commercial aviation.

An intelligent walking cane for the blind

ottobre 5, 2010 Technology No Commenti

The life of visually impaired people, especially in cities where cars are driving fast and passersby are jostling all the time to get to their destinations, can be even more complicated than their disability already makes it.

For several years, various research institutes have been working to try and alleviate this kind of inconvenience, and the latest discovery in this respect comes from the University of Arkansas, where a research team has created a laser walking cane for the blind, which thanks to its technology enables its users to better get oriented, thus avoiding risks.

This is achieved by using radar laser sensors, which within a few seconds are able to obtain an image of their surroundings. Thanks to an algorithm created by the research team, the sensors then calculate the user’s position within that environment, and determine the relative motion between the person with the cane and any other persons, objects or vehicles around them.

In this way, the system inform its user about where it is and where it is going, and detects obstacles such as stairs, doors, potholes or anything that could pose a potential threat. If any such obstacles are located, the system would play a sound that warns its blind user of a dangerous situation ahead.

In short, due to its laser sensors, this walking cane for the visually impaired works like some kind of GPS navigation system, with features that make it suitable for use by those who have lost their sight.
The research project has received over 300 thousand dollars in funding from the National Science Foundation, and the cane could be available to end users over the course of next year.

Recording conversations secretly? Nice and easy

ottobre 4, 2010 Technology No Commenti

Anyone (and there are many) who has ever had a doubt about reliability of the people around them, have at least once asked themselves, how to take a secret recording of a conversation, for example, between his wife and her lover, or between one of his business partners and a competitor with whom he appears to be a bit too friendly, and so on.

The answer exists, and not only it is much easier, but also much cheaper than you can imagine. In fact, there is no need to be professional intelligence agents to record discreetly, if you have the right equipment: for example, devices such as a digital voice recorder.

A miniature recorder, now, is so small that it can be concealed within everyday objects such as key rings, pens, lighters and so on, and would go absolutely unnoticed; anyone can use one, in a simple and intuitive way, to record the conversations around them.

The people around you certainly can not imagine that they are being recorded, and may indulge in compromising conversations, which will be all stored in the memory of your micro recorder. There are several models on the market, for an amateurish or professional use, which may store a few hours of conversations or that can work continuously for days in a row.

Everything depends on how you want to use them and, of course, on your budget. In any case, the cost of this kind of equipment is very limited, and is easily overshadowed by the main benefit: peace in the family or in the office is definitely priceless!

For more information, details and specifications of the hidden recorders, we recommend that you visit the Endoacustica website and contact our experts for tailored advice.

A blimp that can carry up to 150 tons of material

ottobre 4, 2010 Technology No Commenti

The latest novelty for transportation of heavy cargo in harsh environments, such as war zones accessible only by air, or in mountainous areas where a construction work is taking place, comes from Australia, in the form of what looks like something between an airship and a flying saucer.

The SkyLifter, as this vehicle has been called, is able to load about 150 tons of material, that is, approximately 700 times more than a normal heavy transport helicopter. Obviously, being capable of loading charging so much cargo, its size is in proportion, considering that its diameter is about 150 meters.

Due to its shape, which makes it closely resemble some sort of alien spacecraft, the SkyLifter is less prone to the effects of turbulence caused by wind, and manages to carry its load up to a distance of 2000 km at a cruise speed of 40 knots.
The cockpit is “hanging” on a pod at the bottom of the airship, and this position also ensures load balancing, by keeping a low gravity center.

Thanks to SkyLifter, it will be possible to send humanitarian aid in remote areas, for example by loading it with enough material to build an entire hospital in the African desert, or food and medicines to be sent to areas affected by an earthquake and difficult to reach under normal conditions, or even supplies to a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean.

For now SkyLifter is only a concept, although a prototype has been introduced, with a relatively small diameter of about 18 meters. In its designers’ plans, the first unit should see the light over the next three years, at a cost not yet specified.
