The Restoration of Edsac Reaches A Significant Milestone

A project to recreate and restore a pioneering 1940s computer has reached a major milestone after the first working parts are demonstrated.
The key elements were unveiled at an event at Bletchley Park on Wednesday, marking the 100th anniversary of the birth of Sir Maurice Wilkes who designed the Electronic Delay Storage Automatic Calculator (Edsac).

Sir Maurice Wilkes died in 2010 and the project to rebuild the Edsac started in 2011. It is hoped that it will be completed in 2015.
Edsac has been widely accepted as the world’s first practical general purpose computer and it first ran in 1949, with the purpose of helping scientists at the University of Cambridge.
Leo, the world’s first computer designed for business use, copied the design from the Edsac.
In order to recreate this monumental piece of history has not been an easy task. Relatively few of the original design documents have survived, so early work on the project was spent scrutinising pictures of the original to work out what all …

GoogleServe 2013: Giving back on a global scale

Every year in June comes a week where Googlers around the world stop reviewing code, ignore their inboxes and leave their cubicles behind to participate in GoogleServe, our global week of service.

This year, more than 8,500 Googlers from 75+ offices participated in 500 projects. Not only was this our largest GoogleServe to date, but it was also one of the more unique, as many projects were designed to expand the notion of what it means to give back to the community. Here’s a glimpse at some of what we were up to this year:

In Thimphu, Bhutan, Googlers led a workshop about media literacy at the Bhutan Centre for Media and Democracy helping youth prepare to participate in shaping the future of this young democracy.

AngularJS Controller Tutorial with Example

Let us talk about one of the AngularJS’s most useful feature which helps in making awesome single page applications in JavaScript – The Controller.
This tutorial is part of ongoing series of tutorials on AngularJS where we will touch different aspects of Angular and its features. In our last tutorial we saw Introduction of AngularJS and also created a Hello World example using Angular.
Controllers are nothing but plain JavaScript functions which are bound to a particular scope. Don’t worry if this sounds gibberish. Shortly this all will make sense once we create a small Hello World using controller. Controllers are used to add logic to your view. Views are HTML pages. These pages simply shows the data that we bind to them using two-way data binding in Angular (Note: Two-way data binding is explained in previous tutorial). Basically it is Controllers responsibility to glue the Model (data) with the View.
1. What are Scopes?
Before we get into Controllers let us understand Scopes. Scope is …

Self-transforming Transformer Robot by Takara Tomy

Transformers fans should really get their hands on this awesome toy. The self-transforming Transformer robot is an impressive gadget from Japanese toy manufacturer Takara Tomy and has just gone into production.
Takara Tomy first revealed the self-transforming robot at the Tokyo Toy Show 2013. The Transformer bot was displayed together with a Zoids line robotic lion. Both gadgets were controlled via an iPhone.

As its name indicates, the self-transforming robot is able to transform from its car shape into humanoid shape by itself. This is achieved with the help of over a dozen servo motors. The process is not very fast, because the servo motors are too small to pack enough power to support a speedier transformation.
The robot is not yet able to walk either, but manufacturers expect to develop stronger servo motors that will be able to support walking movements in the future.
The Zoids lion displayed at the Toy Show was able to walk on its four limbs, as it uses the same technology as Tomy’s…

Microsoft Release Preview Of Windows 8.1

Microsoft Corp released a test version of Windows 8.1 on Wednesday. Many computer users were left confused and unsure of the new tile-based interface that was launched with Windows 8. The interface, which works best with touch-screen devices, left fans of the traditional desktop PC longing for the old-style “start” button.

So Microsoft have listened to the feedback and have brought the “start” button back as well as other features, which they hope will win back support for the operating system.
Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Balmer opened the company’s annual developer conference and said “Since we announced and shipped Windows 8, suffice it to say, we pushed boldly and yet what we found was we got a lot of feedback from users of those millions of desktop applications.”
To sum up the feedback they received he said, “If I was to put it in coffee terms, ‘Why don’t you go and refine the blend here?’ Let’s remix the desktop and your modern application experience. Let’s balance them better.”
