A new malware threat group, BlackEnergy, has been gaining momentum recently with widespread attacks across Europe, Middle East, Asia and the US, impacting on Linux systems, Cisco hardware and industrial controls like Windows SCADA
The next generation of ultra-fast Internet or ground-breaking light powered electronic circuits, could be built on research at NTU (Nanyang Technological University) that in conjunction with Southampton University has launched its Photonics Institute, developed from a partnership between NTU and ORC (Optoelectronics Research Centre) at Southampton. NTU also unveiled Singapore's first high-tech fibre optic research manufacturing facility, housed at one of the institute's five research centres.
Additive manufacture starts to emerge jumping from food, toys and dental/medical implants, with 3D printed guitars on the road for the first time as part of the Klaxons tour which kicked off on Saturday.
Lightsource Renewable Energy is predicting a ‘solar boom’ in Scotland and has opened a new office in Livingston to take advantage of it, as the majority of it's £1.1billion of UK investment in the solar industry up to now been deployed on large-scale ground mount projects.
