Ultrasonic Radar For A Home PC System
... power and a tenth the size, with less
parts and using less power.
An airport or an army base used to have huge structures that could
send out signals to find out if any aircraft were approaching. This
technology is now offered to people who have a computer with microsoft's
quick basic, or a Macintosh, and space (equivalent to that of a coffee-pot)
to spare. Ultrasonic radar is now a small component for your computer,
giving computer operators a chance to see low flying objects, household
furniture, and even themselves on their PC screen. Just to impress a
neighbour or friend is reason enough to build your own u ...
Fifth Generation Computers
... and most powerful CPU in the market. This processor could do a plethora of small tasks and still not be working to hard. Around 2-3 years ago, the Pentium came out, paving the way for new and faster computers. Intel was the most proficient in this area and came out with a range of processors from 66 MHz-166 Mhz. These processors are also now starting to become obsolete. Todays computers come equipped with 400-600 Mhz processors that can multi-task at an alarming rate. Intel has just started the release phase of it’s new Pentium III-800MHz processor. Glenn Henry is
quoted to say “Megahertz is all people care abou ...
Electronic Monitoring Vs. Health Concerns
... twenty-one percent of all employees are monitored at
work, and the larger the company, the higher the percentage (Privacy 445).
Unaware of this electronic monitoring, most employees often are not working at
their peak performance due to this type of scrutiny.
The majority of Americans believe that electronic monitoring should not
be allowed. Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis states that of all of the
freedoms that Americans enjoy, privacy "is the right most valued by civilized
men (Privacy 441)." A poll taken by Yankelovich Clancy Shulman for Time, states
that ninety-five percent of Americans believe tha ...
What Is Virtual Reality
... and interact
with computers and extremely complex data"
The visualization part refers to the computer generating visual, auditory
or other sensual outputs to the user of a world within the computer. This
world may be a CAD model, a scientific simulation, or a view into a
database. The user can interact with the world and directly manipulate
objects within the world. Some worlds are animated by other processes,
perhaps physical simulations, or simple animation scripts. Interaction with
the virtual world, at least with near real time control of the viewpoint,
in my opinion, is a critical test for a 'virtual reality' ...
... the 1980's, the National
Science Foundation built five Superconductor Computer Centers to give several
universities academic access to high powered computers formerly available to
only the United State's military (Krol). The National Science Foundation then
built its own network chaining more universities together. Later, the network
connections were being used for purposes unrelated to the National Science
Foundation's idea such as the universities sending electronic mail (today, it is
understood as Email). The United States government then helped pushed the
evolution of the Internet, calling the project: Infor ...
Computers As Medical Treatment Devices
... "sensor" where light is
turned into electrical impulses (called the retina), and a nerve to
transmit what we "see" to the brain (called the optic nerve). Generally,
the main difficulties with sight are from either a misshapen cornea, which
fails to focus light properly unto the receiving plate, the retina.
Early treatments included the wearing of lenses, which corrected
sight abnormalities, or even physical surgery with the scalpel which could
release the tension on the cornea and allow it to form into it's proper
shape. Now, with the help of modern science and computers, it's possible to
use lasers in surgi ...
The Power On Self Test
... pressing CTRL-ALT-ESC). The AMI BIOS is mostly entered by
pressing the DEL key after resetting (CTRL-ALT-DEL) or powering up the computer.
You can bypass the extended CMOS settings by holding the key down during
boot-up. This is really helpful, especially if you bend the CMOS settings right
out of shape and the computer won't boot properly anymore. This is also a handy
tip for people who play with the older AMI BIOSes with the XCMOS setup. It
allows changes directly to the chip registers with very little technical

... in 1924 and assumed that company's name. Thomas Watson arrived that same year and began to build the floundering company into an industrial giant. soon became the country's largest manufacturer of time clocks and developed and marketed the first electric typewriter. In 1951 the company entered the computer field. The development of 's technology was largely funded by contracts with the U.S. government's Atomic Energy Commission; close parallels existed between products made for government use and those introduced by into the public marketplace. In the late 1950s distinguished itself with two innovations: the conc ...

The History Of Computers
... it is
very old. It is about 2000 years old .1 The first computer was the abacus. This
invention was constructed of wood, two wires, and beads. It was a wooden rack
with the two wires strung across it horizontally and the beads were strung
across the wires. This was used for normal arithmetic uses. These type of
computers are considered analog computers. Another analog computer was the
circular slide rule. This was invented in 1621 by William Oughtred who was an
English mathematician. This slid ruler was a mechanical device made of two rules,
one sliding inside the other, and marked with many number scales. Thi ...
