Are you curious and excited to know about some amazing recent inventions that really catch the eye? Read the below article to unveil it all yourself!

  1.  Floating Desk Lamp

The first invention on the list is the floating desk lamp, which floats above the surface and still, keeps glowing. Now let’s talk about how it works. There is a wireless power transmitter inside the base on which the bulb floats, and a power receiver is placed in the bulb, so this is how it gets power. Now the point is that how it floats, it floats because of magnetic force which is produced by a magnet in the wood base. You can buy it from here.

2. Edible Water

The next invention on the list is Edible water. Nowadays, the use of plastic bottles has increased too much which causes an increase in the level of pollution. But you all would have been scratching your heads to find its solution. The invention shown in the image is a water ball known as Ooho, an edible ball of water, that bursts out water when we bite it! This is an amazing solution to reduce pollution to some extent.                                                            Image credits- Wikimedia

Would you believe me if I say that you can stop dogs from barking unnecessarily just using a simple gadget? You probably must have heard them barking while you are having important meetings or lectures. Here’s a solution to it. Barxbuddy is a type of remote control that can help you to silence dogs. You must be thinking about how it works. It releases ultrasonic sounds which dogs can hear but humans cannot. These sounds are very irritating for them which causes them to stop barking. You can buy it from here.

4. Transparent TV

What would come to your mind when I say Transparent Tv? You would think of tv from a sci-fi film. But would you believe me that these kinds of TVs are now possible? Xiaomi and some other TV brands have made transparent displays in which the pixels are made transparent or fused with a transparent material. Although they are not completely transparent, they are still very futuristic. Mi TV LUX and LG Transparent OLED are examples of such TV. This is definitely next-gen!

5. Rollable Smartphones

Recently, Oppo launched a new smartphone
Oppo X 2021, which has a rollable display! This phone has a rollable display that can change its screen size by unrolling/rolling its display. Actually, in such kinds of phones, there are two individual motors which help in rolling and unrolling the display. It can be converted to a tablet and a smartphone. This is an example of revolutionary tech. Working of a rollable phone.

6. Phantom Chess Board

For all chess lovers, this is an excellent example of the integration of technology with sports. This is the most advanced chess board available which has an electronic system with which you can play chess with anyone in the world even if they are away from you! This board also allows users to play using voice commands with the computer or their friends.

It consists of an AI using a neural network similar tothe human brain which can play any difficulty level with you. It also has a tracking system, which recommends you to improve your moves.

7. Transparent Solar Cell

I am sure that you must have heard about the replacement of
non-renewable energy sources with renewable sources like solar, tidal, etc. But how's it possible to create a transparent solar cell? Researchers at MIT have accomplished this achievement. These cells absorb only infrared and ultraviolet light rays.

The coatings of solar cells are deposited on various transparent materials which utilize the invisible solar spectrum to produce electricity. These cells can be used as windows or glass panels in buildings and skyscrapers which can provide enough electricity needs of the building.

Annual Day 2023

 After a long hiatus due to covid we finally got most activities on track. The Annual Day function is always a big deal for everyone at Abhinav. It has been a tradition my mother started that the Annual Day will be not a Teacher-managed event, but a Student Initiative. Since when I was a teenager, I was part of this and today 10 years after she passed, I still strive to make it work as she would have. After some hesitation, we began working in early January. I wanted to use an outside choreographer just so that teachers will not be burdened. (They are already struggling with post-covid learning difficulties) But then, an outside guy could never do justice to the Abhinav style of doing things. We always keep in mind that the cultural program should be enjoyable to everyone in the audience and at the same time should display as many of the diverse talents that our students have, as possible.  It was a great relief that my G3 students came to the rescue. Almost all of std 9 and many of st

Are Self-Driving Cars Taking Over Humans?

- Arya Dharmadhikari(Std X, Abhinav Vidyalay) The 21st century has played an important role in the advancement of technologies. This development has even revolutionized the Automobile industry. We have developed from fuel-efficient vehicles to Hybrids and EVs and now we are enhancing self-driving vehicles. Tesla, Waymo, Volvo, GM, BMW, Mercedes are among the few companies that have started testing self-driving cars. The leading among them is Waymo, which has developed level 4 autonomy which we will discuss in the next section. So before reaching levels of autonomy we should understand what self-driving cars are and why we require them. What is a self-driving car? A self-driving car (also called an autonomous vehicle) is a car that is competent in driving itself without any human intervention. The car has sensors, cameras, lasers, radars, GPS, LIDAR through which the Artificial Intelligence senses the surrounding environment, this helps the car to navigate on its path and to detect sig

Dark Matter

  ~Anvi Patil(X th A Abhinav Vidyalay) In the universe, there is about 25% of dark matter and 70% of dark energy but only 5% of it is visible. What is Dark Matter? It is a non-luminous material, which holds two galaxies. This cannot be called a black hole because it does not bend light. Then the question arrives, as it is non-luminous, how did we detect it? As it is not visible, scientists have found indirect methods to find more about it. One such method is by using the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope . Gamma rays are released when two particles of dark matter collide, Fermi telescope can be used to detect this collision. This topic was discovered by Fritz Zwicky in the 1930s, he discovered that galaxies were rotating at a faster rate than usual. A dark region seen in the foreground of a star field. This dark region could be a dark cloud of gases like hydrogen, left over from the formation of our galaxy Dark matter is called ‘dark’ not because it is ‘black’ but because it does not
