According to personnel at Microsoft, its researchers have recently new evidence of an unusual phenomenon that’s pivotal to its plans to build general-purpose quantum computers.

The marvel, known as a Majorana zero mode, is likely to ease the path for topological quantum computing, otherwise known as the technological approach that’s preferred by Microsoft’s Azure Quantum program.

But what is quantum computing? In comparison with the straightforward one-or-zero world of traditional computing, quantum computing manipulates quantum bits or qubits, that can represent ones and zeroes at the same time until the results are readout.

According to scientists, the quantum approach can solve certain types of issues that have been a headache for ages, such as network optimization or simulations of molecular interactions. Also, the creation of hardware and software for “full-stack” quantum computing systems can take on a far wider range of applications and this is where the Majorana zero modes come into play.

The sole existence of the Majorana phenomenon proves that humans are closer to the creation of topological qubits and assembling a quantum computer. Even though there’s still work to be done, Microsoft’s scientists have full confidence that they are on the right path towards developing a quantum machine that will allow computation on a whole new level that’s closer to the way nature works.

Isn’t science fascinating?

New research has shown how future cities could be 3D printed by using concrete made with recycled glass that can be shaped into different forms which will result in lower costs, time to build and less impact to the environment. By using recycled glass as a component of concrete for 3D printing, instead of natural sand, as glass itself is made from sand, there is no need to extract more to build cities.

Because only a quarter of the glass that is thrown away from households is recycled (and more than half ending up in landfills), these new concrete products will help ensure glass is actually being recycled. By using this new concrete to print wall elements and building blocks, whole buildings can be constructed with superior properties than that containing natural sand.

By using 3D printing technology, engineers can develop innovative types of structures from a computer and have them constructed in a matter of minutes. Moreover, these printers can operate for 24 hours a day and decrease the amount of waste produced while also increasing the safety of construction workers.

Imagine having whole buildings made with the bottles you take out every week outside your house and see with your own eyes the impact your deeds have on others - it shows you are putting your “grain of glass” towards sustainable construction. How futuristic!

Much in the style of Star Wars, US holograms firm Portl has made it possible for people to join conferences as life-size 3D holograms in 4K resolution. With the coronavirus pandemic, global travel has been greatly reduced, and has allowed communication companies improve and innovate their businesses at a faster pace.

Portl uses an eight feet glass-fronted box as a “portal” to booth a life-size hologram of a person who may well be on the other side of the world with just a camera, a plain backdrop, and a microphone. The portals also have built-in speakers and cameras so that the user of the hologram can see and hear what people in front of them are saying.

David Nussbaum, Portl’s CEO, believes it’s a real possibility that this technology will become a regular way of communicating between offices; however, right now each portal costs more than $60,000. Other firms such as Microsoft are also creating their own hologram communication technology with a headset called HoloLens 2 which costs around $3,500 per unit: Companies like Japan Airlines are already using the headsets to help train engine mechanics and plane crews.

Are you ready for a hologram call?

Research has found that the average smartphone user increased their time spent on mobile devices by 31 minutes in 2021, with 88% of their total mobile internet usage being apps instead of regular browsers. But what are the most popular apps in 2021? What are those that the market considers as essential to have this year? Let’s take a look:

-    Uber: The world’s leading on-demand ride-share service connects over 103 million riders around the world to drivers around 70 different countries. However, Uber has won its place in thanks to its superior GPS integration with Google Maps, convenient payment processing and up front price calculation.

-    Instagram: With 1.4 billion monthly users, this popular Facebook app is very popular among Millenials and Gen-Zers, who love its “stories” feature where videos and photos they upload disappear within 24-hours as well as its numerous in-app video and photo filters.

-    TikTok: Built by Chinese firm ByteDance, TikTok is also among the most popular video-sharing apps in the world - especially among the under-18-year population. The average user spends over 50 minutes per day on the app, and with 90% of their monthly users accessing it daily.

-    Airbnb: Just like Uber connects users to drivers; Airbnb connects travelers who need a place to stay with affordable apartments or rooms to rent. The app features numerous filters to find the precise accommodation users want as well as easy in-app communication.

-    YouTube: Despite being the oldest-existing app of the bunch, YouTube is still the world’s most popular video platform featuring millions of content creators from around the globe in an array of categories and entertainment genres.

-    WhatsApp: With over 1.5 billion users worldwide, this Facebook app has been used to chat and make phone calls with friends and family since 2009.

Which have been your favorite apps during these strange times we live in?
